On this day 54 years ago, the football team rolled Friends Academy, 21-6, to close their best season since 1949.

After a scoreless first half, the Blue and White offense finally warmed up as they reeled off two touchdowns in the third quarter, courtesy of four and three-yard scoring runs by Read McLean. In the fourth quarter, Robert MacKenzie helped put the game away when he took a Dave Johnson pass 34 yards for the score. A safety by All-Ivy League lineman Dave Cloos completed the scoring.

The win gave the Brook a 6-2 season record, their best since Floyd Johnson’s boys went 5-1-1 in 1949.
