1959

Bobby Allen, the R. I. Am­a­teur cham­pion from the Paw­tucket Coun­try Club, pulled off the big­gest up­set of the U. S. Am­a­teur golf cham­pi­onships. Allen ousted Ward Wet­t­laufer of Wil­liamsville, N. Y., who reached the quar­ter­fi­nals last year and is one of the younger mem­bers of the 1959 U. S. Walker Cup team, 2 and 1. Allen took the lead on the sec­ond hole, went 3-up at the sixth and would not let go as he played even par golf for 17 holes over the rugged, moun­tain-rimmed 7,010-yard, par 36-35-71 Broad­mour Coun­try Club course in Colorado Springs. Jack Nick­laus, an 18-year-old, 190-pound ju­nior at Ohio State Univer­sity, is one of the tour­ney’s fa­vorites.

1969

Dave Zyons sparked a touch­down drive in the clos­ing min­utes of play that car­ried Cum­ber­land to a 27-20 Class B Eastern Divi­sion win over Bar­ring­ton. With three min­utes left to play and the score dead­locked at 20-20, Zyons, the Clip­pers’ tal­ented ju­nior quar­ter­back, re­turned the kick­off 41 yards and then with one minute re­main­ing passed 20 yards to end Ge­orge Mathieu for the win­ning TD. Sean Crook scored on a 14-yard jaunt, Char­lie Gifford bulled over from six yards out, Dave Toste scooped up a fum­ble and lugged the pigskin 10 yards for a TD and Cookie Sut­cliffe booted three PAT for coach Pete Dalpe.

1979

Woonsocket ju­nior Dave Bliss was the in­di­vid­ual win­ner with a time of 13:33 over the Mount St. Charles’ 2.3-mile course, but it was not enough as Lin­coln sur­prised the Villa No­vans 25-30 in open­ing ac­tion of the North­ern Divi­sion cross-coun­try sea­son. Sopho­mores Mark An­drews, Rick Szu­mita and Hank Sarazin fin­ished sec­ond, third and fourth, re­spec­tively, to pace the Lions. In an­other X-C meet, the five­some of Mark Bar­rett, Bill Connell, Ray Benoit, Dan McGuirk and Jeff DeGoes crossed the fin­ish line to­gether to share first place as Saint Raphael Academy bested North Smith­field 15-44.
