October 23, 1942 Dick Jones scores a pair of touchdowns to help lead Tamaqua to an 18-0 win over Nesquehoning. The Blue Raiders reach the end zone on their first possession when Billy Abromitis caps a 12-play, 55-yard drive with a one-yard scoring plunge. Jones adds to the advantage when his 24-yard gain on a fake punt leads to a two-yard TD run. Jones breaks free for a 34-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to complete the scoring. Tamaqua's defense intercepts two passes, one each by Sembach and Larry Klein.
