September 28, 1973 A long touchdown pass and a blocked punt help Slatington pull off a 14-6 Lehigh Valley League upset over Lehighton. The Bulldogs open the scoring with a first quarter 68-yard scoring strike from Mike Hunsicker to Todd Freed. Later in the half, Bob "Yogi" Edwards blocks an Indian punt to give the winners, coached by George Yaniger, a first-and-goal. Edwards eventually bulls his way into the end zone from two yards away for what turns out to be the winning score.
