The Brookville Raiders and Brockway Rovers played to an 8-8 tie in the season-opening football game last Saturday afternoon at the BAHS field. Both teams scored in the first half, then battled through two scoreless quarters in the second half. The Rovers got their lone touchdown on a real break, and their bit of fortune came about in the opening minutes of the game. The Raiders had to grind out their touchdown the hard way, chewing up yardage in short attacks and staying on the ground. A huge crowd of 1,500 fans watched Brockway take the early lead when the Rovers’ Jeff Hooten blocked Wayne Mumford’s punt. Brockway recovered at the Raiders’ 6 and two plays later John Cantafio scrambled around the left end into the end zone. He then rammed over for the two-point conversion. The Raiders matched the Rovers on the scoreboard when Tom Ferraro’s recovered Rovers fumble at the Rovers’ 45 with 1:51 left in the first quarter set up the Raiders’ touchdown. Junior quarterback Steve White, in his first varsity start, utilized the running threats of Dave Richards and Bill Kutz and guided the Raiders to a 55-yard touchdown drive. It ended when Richards went over from the 1 and then took a pitch from White for the two-point conversion. The Raiders outgained the Rovers, 105-79. … Bill Crawford birdied four of the first eight holes in the final match for the Gordon Cup at Pinecrest Country Club on Labor Day to retain the title of club champion. The scores of the two contestants — Crawford and Spud Snyder — were 74 and 75 over the first 18 holes, but Crawford was four holes ahead at that point. Crawford pulled away and led by nine holes with 9 holes left before Snyder conceded the match.
