Sopho- · more Michael Bisase was the only other SIU runner in the top tea as he was ninth in 25:38. , Although Saliud head coach Lew Harta* waa disappointed with the outcome against the highly touted Racers, who are coached ; by former Saluki distance st*r Bin-Cornell, he wai '·equally' displeased with his team's overall performance with the important Illinois In- tercollegiates and Missouri Val- iey Championships looming ahead. "Sawyer ran weE but 'the rest of the kids just didn't run well' at all," said Hartzog of 'the meet. "We've now-had two weeks of what I consider sub par performances. We have to improve if we expect to do well in'the Illinois Jntercolle- giates and the Valley." The Salukis now have just one week to prepare for the Illinois Intercollegiates which will be run at Chicago Satur. day. SIU-C placed fourth in last year's meet. The win left the Vernois 3-3, but 2-2 in conference play as compared to Marion's 2-3. ' The Robert Sanders to John Weigel passing combination seemed to be Benton's undoing. The talented Orphans' duo combined 'for pass scoring plays of 88, 35 and 28 yards for the first three touchdowns of the game. ' 'Frank Kolisek of Benton then threw his first of two scoring pass's-- one of 12 yards to Jon Fairchilds -- before Centralia again retaliated on a six- yard Devon Hudson scoring run. Kolisek also hit David' Fatr- childs for a 30-yard final quarter scoring strike. Mt. Vernon rushed for more yards against Marion (306), than it had totalledrm its three previous games. One of the runs was for one yard and a touchdown by quarterback Tim Raney and another of 10 yards to paydirt by Terry Swinnen.
