1960

Having lost only one game out of six this season, the Nantucket High School football team came to Veterans Memorial Park Saturday and added still another victory to its record by defeating the Regional High School team 26 to 0. Nantucket’s power and experience accounted for everything, although neither of those qualities made any real showing until the final quarter, when the Nantucketers really got all gears meshing.
 
Up until then, the prospective winners were beset by fumbles and penalties, which nipped all but one scoring threat.

For the Vineyard footballers, the outcome of yesterday’s game with Nantucket in a scoreless tie was a moral victory. The young Vineyarders held the experienced Nantucketers down to an even-stephen nothingness all the
way.
 
It was a see-sawing ground play throughout, until the last quarter when the Vineyard pressed its way down to Nantucket’s 10 yard line and lost the ball on downs. Nantucket then took to the air and was successful in getting back to the Vineyard’s 35.

The game with Nantucket on Saturday turned out to be one of the roughest that the Martha’s Vineyard footballers have encountered. Judging by the number of injuries suffered by the Island boys, it was the roughest, with the principal Vineyard players seemingly one by one being removed from the game as the advantage irrevocably turned toward the Nantucketers, who finally defeated their visitors 33 to 20.
 
Coach Kelley’s men performed during the first half of the game with what has become their traditional good form, playing in swift pace and hard fought fashion.
The debut of the first Vineyard football team, under the guidance of Coaches John Kelley, Daniel McCar­thy and Stanley Whitman, will take place tomorrow afternoon on the newly laid-out field at the Veterans Memorial Park in Vineyard Haven. For their first game the Island boys are taking on the impressive gridiron group from the Ashland High School, a team that boasts fifteen straight wins.
