Redskins (Continued From Page A-15.)_ had another team mark in his possession—690 yards gained on passes—which bettered the 1945 mark of 623 hung up by Steve Bagarus. Taylor picked up 96 | yards yesterday. From their early field goal attempts it was evident that both Owen and Redskin Coach Her man Ball figured three points might be the winning margin. Ben Agajanian's first try from the 40 for the Giants was blocked by John (Barrel) Badaczewski early in the first period, but the Giant booter made good on a 34-yard try early in the second quarter. The kick looked even better to New York fans later in the period as Roberts went 30 yards and then one more on the succeeding play for a touchdown. Poillon tried to even the count with a 40-yard placement just before the half ended, but was short. Roberts’ second touchdown gave the Giants a commanding 17-7 advantage and when Conerly fol lowed Emmy Tunnel’s intercep ► - • ■ - — tion of Harry Gilmer’s pass with a 19-yard scoring toss to Swiacki it was curtains for the Redskins.
