1936

The 1936 season was the last time the Yardley and Falls high schools played each other. 
During 1936 Falls played an exhibition game of 6 Men Football which would later be adopted by Yardley in 1938 and Falls in 1939 and 1940, taking the place of 11 Man Football. The Bristol Courier article from 9-19-36 describes the difficulties of a small school in fielding a football team.

We were able to locate another article on our neighbor's website which discusses a game between Yardley and Langhorne (Neshaminy).
