USO Benefit Football Game At Moore Park
October 11, 1942
10,000 See St. Justin Win, 23-0
Paced by Joe Petrolio, fullback, the St. Justin eleven, of Mount Washington, walloped St. George, 23-0, in the opening game of the Catholic High School League season before a crowd of 10,000 at Moore Field, Brookline, yesterday. The game, a benefit for the USO, realized $486.24 for the fund.
Right Halfback George Rankin opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 15-yard field goal and then plunged over from seven yards out for a touchdown in the second session. He also converted. Petrolio, a few minutes later, registered the second six-pointer on a 16-yard run around end.
A forward pass from Rankin to Nally, followed by a lateral to Petrolio accounted for the third and final score of the game in the third period.
