November 30, 1940 Charley Melley's one-yard touchdown plunge on the first play of the fourth quarter lifts Coaldale to a 7-0 victory over Lansford in front of 6,000 fans. The Tigers' win, which occurs during a snowstorm, ends the Panthers' undefeated season and chance for an Eastern Conference championship. Melley, who carries 27 times for 71 yards, sets up his winning score by completing a 37-yard pass to Frank Priggins.
