Official recap
Pepped by a 97-yard drive and two TDs in the final quarter, the Reds whipped the Whites, 23-3, in the All Sports Day spring football windup at Memorial Stadium. Ironically, it was the final game on the famed turf before AstroTurf went down — and it was a rain-drenched quagmire.

Sloppy footing made efficiency uncommon, but the Reds — who boasted the top performers of the spring — rammed to a 9-0 halftime lead and then broke the game open in the final quarter after the Whites had pulled up, 9-3, and drove to the three.

Taking over after a heavy rush spoiled a fourth down pass, the Jerry Tagge-skippered Reds rolled 97-yards to score, mixing some fine running by Jeff Kinney and a long pass from Tagge to Guy Ingles.

Dan Schneiss bowled the final yard to ice the game with 4:24 left, but the Reds weren't through yet.

Soph Chuck Osberg flipped a left-hand 40-yard strike to Frosh Frosty Anderson with 2:50 left in the game for the final TD of the muddy day.

An unofficial record crowd of 13,000 took in the proceedings.
