Spoolstra, Calvin 19681110; Valley News, Van Nuys, CA - Scott, Ramsey Pave the Way Valley Christian's...
Scott, Ramsey Pave the Way Valley Christian's football crusade to the San Fernando Fernando Valley, an Olympic League encounter that was supposed to put an end to Harvard School's 1968 winning winning streak and clinch the title for the Crusaders, was turned back at Coldwater Canyon and left the visitors seeing double: Scott Scott! His name may be redun- Bill Fekkes Harvard's Rick (33) and Marty zone that turned Olympic League by Herb Carleton Pins 0 on High School's at logging victory down on the Los Angeles School when the the Valiants the seventh in dant, but his defensive performance performance for the Saracens certainly wasn't, and Harvard walked off the field with its eighth consecutive victory of the year and an assurance that it will at least tie for the Olympic League championship. championship. Final score was 14-7. Scott's hand in the final outcome doesn't show up in any of the stats, but his presence was felt . . . quite heavily, in fact . . . by the invading Crusaders, who had entered the game unbeaten unbeaten in circuit play. In the closing seconds of the game, Valley Christian had a third down with goal to go on Harvard's 21-yard line. Crusader tailback Jim Bakker ran downfield on a look-in pass pattern and was quarterback Jim Hibma's target target on about the seven. The ball was on target and Bakker "had it in his grasp . . . but only for an instant! Scott was there, too, and when the two men collided, Bakker had no chance to hang onto the ball and it bounced harmlessly away. That made it fourth-and-21 and Hibma's last-shot effort was long. Scott made another big defensive defensive stop in the closing seconds seconds of the first half with Valley Valley Christian on the Harvard four-yard line. With the assistance of Hick Porter, who later scored the game-winning touchdown by recovering a fumble in the Valley Christian Christian end zone, Scott threw Bakker for a yard loss, forcing forcing the Crusaders to try for an extra point. tackle for the touchdown four plays later. David McKee's conversion tied the score at 7-7 with 26 seconds remaining in the first quarter, and that's how the half ended, thanks to a fine defensive stand by Harvard in the closing seconds of the second second period. The break Harvard needed needed to win was manufactured by Irvine late in the third quarter. Irvine shot through to block a punt by Fekkes, and he recovered the ball himself on Valley Christian's 24. Ramsay, who was a standout standout on offense for coaches Lee Carlson, Dan McFadden, Loue Ryave and Rodger Erickson Erickson all day, swept left end for 21 yards before being bumped out of bounds on the three. He picked up two mora yards on the first-down play, making it second-and-one less than a yard from the goal line, but Whittell bobbled the next snap from center and lost control of the ball, which bounced around in the Valley Christian end zone for several seconds before Porter alertly dove over the ball, covering it with his body. McKee converted again to boost the score to 14-7. One play after the ensuing kiekoff, Valley Christian was on the move. The Crusaders, thanks to a 12-yard run by Hibma and a 19-yard sprint on an inside reverse reverse by Gerard Goedhart, soon found themselves deep in Harvard territory.
