Notre Dame Sports Section Nov. Panthers Met Spread Attack the and By SKEBO McKAY The Amphitheatre Panthers had an easy time in heating the Tolleson Wolverines, ,35-7, last week but at the, same time were confronted with one of the toughest offensives in foot ball to play against -- the spread P Fo'r two periods the Wolverines were held practically gainless and it wasn't until the second play of the third quarter that they opened with the spread. Although warned to advance of it the Panthers were still caught off-guard in many plays. Tolleson ran passed from this formation. The lone Wolverine touchdo\vn was indirectly responsible to the spread play as they marched from the 45 to the 10 only to lose the ball on downs when they tried_ a pass that fell incomplete on the fourth down. Had the Wolverines continued to use the spread on the 10, chances are they would have scored then. But fato was with them as the Panthers fumbled on tho first play and Holleson recovered on the 10. Manny Hernandez passed to Loberlc Sllvas for .the marker and Dean Olson converted. The Wolverines lost a good man midway in tho last quarter when Olsen was hurt and car- ricd off the field after tackling Jim Tolkan on a handoff from Larry Hart. Olscn was tlic defensive defensive backfield mainstay and figured in several nice runs. The highlighting individual per f ormances have to go to Joe Venut and Earl Colwell,. Panther half backs. Venutl, 160-pound reserve has played his share of games this season but never as in the game las week. His line plunges and end around sweeps were something t watch as he tore away from tack lers. Coach Murl .McCain will los a good halfback next year In Chucl Hopkins through graduation bu Venuti will be his answer placement. Earl Colwell upped his seasor scoring total to a neat 66 points bj putting over a touchdown anc kicking five extra points. His extra point booting is really someth n, to watch. He's a natural and th balls go over the goal high an easy. Reserve Fullback Doug Linds- Icy has to be mentioned also ·with shoulders made to hit on job despite the fact lie was sick all day and was troubled with a sore left elbow. Lindslcy is no doubt ono of the hardest tacklors in tho state. He's a rugged boy with shoulders mado to nit on coming runners with his full body weight. Tho victory gave the Panthers ft 6-1-1 record ns compared to winning only two games last year from Tombstone and tno Tucson Cubs. They have thus far racked up a total of 107 points to the opponents' Ci. This week they engage the Tu B on Cubs in the last game of th year for the Panthers at their horn field. Next week they go to Doug las and then to meet the powerfi Mesa Jackrabblts. The Cubs hold wins over the Indian school twice with identical scores of 3-0 .and lost to the Nogales Nogales Apaches, 0-19. The Cub line is liffht but the team is backed by a trio of good backs in Gene Nixon, Tom Kelly and Lou Reizk. Only the lack of reserves will keep the Cubs from making a good showing with Amphl, who Is tak- Ing no chances though. Panther . Guard Gerald Wester, one of the hustlingest linemen in the state, is suffering from a fractured toe from last week and will miss'the Cub in re AP Grid Poll Classified ics, Radio, Played Well Against Raiders To Star Of Pro Gridders Joe Goff (left)' and Eel Wolgast, Arizona substitute tacks, were among .'the Wildcat player · .^TM'^ by Head Coach Mike Casteel for their-outstanding play as the S tlropped a 41-28 game to Texas Tech Saturday at Lubbock PP Goff" in addifion to making good on four con- on defense, gie Russell.)
