Bobby Allen, the four-time R. I. Am­a­teur cham­pion from the Paw­tucket Coun­try Club, con­tin­ued his sparkling play in the Na­tional Am­a­teur golf cham­pi­onships by de­feat­ing John Owens of Lex­ing­ton, Ky. in a 19-hole duel at the rugged, moun­tain-rimmed 7,010-yard, par 36-35-71 Broad­mour Coun­try Club course in Colorado Springs. It was the sec­ond close bat­tle for Allen in the 59th USGA clas­sic. Allen’s vic­tory over Owens, con­sid­ered one of the out­stand­ing am­a­teur golfers in the Blue Grass State, moved him into the third round against John Guen­ther of Her­shey, Pa.


A pun­ish­ing ground at­tack led by Dave La­bossiere, Nick Aser­melly and Mark Groves to­gether with some sharp pass­ing by Jim Lund brought Saint Raphael Academy a pair of sec­ond half scores for a 14-0 shutout over a well-re­garded Mid­dle­town eleven in a Class B Eastern Di­vi­sion tilt. Lund, who had four com­ple­tions in six pass at­tempts, hit Groves and Joe Ar­ruda on 15-yarders and La­bossiere capped the march by blast­ing over from the five-yard line and rush­ing the PAT. Aser­melly tal­lied the fi­nal TD late in the fourth quar­ter on a three-yard rush af­ter Charley O’Mal­ley recorded a three-yard sack on a fourth down at­tempted screen pass.


QB John San­tos rushed for two touch­downs, in­clud­ing the game-win­ner, and passed for an­other as the Raiders pre­sented first-year coach Steve Alves with his ini­tial vic­tory as Shea came from be­hind to hold off Nar­ra­gansett 20-18 in a Class B cross-over con­test. San­tos’ tal­lies came on runs of seven and four yards and a six-yard aerial to Bob Tonucci, while Hum­berto Cruz con­verted two out of three PAT kicks. Al Dant­zler chalked up 69 yards on 21 car­ries to lead the Raider ground at­tack and Dino Ge­or­gopoulus added 43 yards on just three car­ries. “Tidge” Parker, who had three re­cep­tions, sealed the win by in­ter­cept­ing a Mariner pass at mid­field late in the fourth quar­ter.
