Winning TD scored on pass play

MARION — Shaking off the lethargy which seemed to characterize the scrimmage drill last Tuesday against Freemont St. Joe, the Norwalk High Truckers varsity eleven scored a 7-0 win over a big rugged Marion Harding eleven here last night in a preview session.

The touchdown, a 15-yard pass from quarterback Allen Beach to Dick Heaston in the final quarter, climaxed a drive which began on their own 40-yard line when Marion lost the ball on downs...

...Norwalk’s reserves, piloted by Jim Spalsbury for its two-period encounter, worked smoothly and displayed a fine ground attack and was particularly effective on end sweeps.
