The 1930 football team

On this day 84 years ago, the football team shutout Riverdale by a score of 14-0, avenging a 21-0 defeat the year before.

The Brook opened up the season with victories over East Hampton and Lawrence by scores of 28-0 and 14-0, and the staunch defense did not yield in their third match-up of the season. Robert Glover put the Blue and White on top in the first quarter, while Charles Pateman added the extra point with a “line plunge” for a 7-0 lead. Before the quarter was out, Edward MacKenzie scored a second touchdown and Eugene Myers added an extra point to give the Brookers a 14-0 edge.

From there, the defense, led by Clarkson Carpenter and Charlie Bixler, made sure it was more than enough as the boys pulled out a third consecutive shutout.
