VfS-HAUNT flKST GOPHER SET BACK- Play Pittsburgh Next By JIM KLOBUCHAR MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The "ifs" that didn't happen haunted Minnesota's football tearii today after a 24-21 opening game loss to Washington, "If Jim Reese had been protected protected on his last pass, if we hadn't dropped a punt, or if we had started moving a little sooner in the second half we would have had the game won," said Capt. Mike Svendsen. "We lost it ourselves. I think we were the better team at the finish. We marched the last two times we had the ball and outgained them pretty well. But nobody can change the score. We lost and shouldn't have." The Gophers thus dropped one of the few games in which they will be favored this year. For their home opener at Memorial Stadium Saturday they draw unbeaten Pittsburgh, by any yardstick a tougher team than Washington. The backbreaker in the Gopher defeat came with two minutes left after the Gophers rode the wings of Reese's passes for one touchdown touchdown in the fourth period and were driving for another. From the Husky 12 Reese dropped dropped back to pass to Tom Moe, breaking clear in the Washington end zone. With Reese looking downfield, Washington's Kirk Wil ion barreled in from the left side unseen by the Gopher quarterback and unblocked. "He hit me and the ball poppec out of my hands," Reese said. "'. saw it bouncing away and tried to jump on it, but some Washington player cut in front of me and they recovered. "I'm positive we would have •cored on that sequence, even i that particular pass hadn't been good. We were hitting on just about everything we tried. "I think the .pass call in that situation was all right. Our pass- rig game had been working real wells.' : Complete 12 Passes This was an economy size understatement. understatement. For the game Reese completed 12 passes in 21 tries and was fire hot in the fourth quarter when the Gophers had lit,le lit,le choice but pass and Washington Washington knew it. But before the Gophers hit the airlanes, Washington had done some of the same itself, exposing the old Minnesota vulnerability to air power. Operating with an unexpected slotback offense behind its unbalanced unbalanced line, Washington finessed 73 yards to score with 2& minutes of the opening kickoff, Bob Hivner, passing five straight times. He scored from the four. Minnesota came back on the ground with Bob Soltis, Roger Hagberg and Jim Heid hauling. Hagberg punched over from the one. Reese got his passes working a few minutes later and fired to Perry Gehring for another touchdown. touchdown. Kicks Wreck Gophers Kicks, those that boomeranged and one that was dropped, wrecked Minnesota in the second quarter. Luther Carr's long kickoff runback runback put Washington in business again and Hivher. went over from the two. A Carr punt return got Washington in business again and Hivner went over from the two. A Can- punt return got Washington Washington to the Minnesota 37 few minutes minutes later and Hivner's passes produced produced the go-ahead Husky score. Tom Chandonnet's fumble of George Flemmihg's punt on the Minnesota nine gave Flemming a chance' to 'kick the winning field goal two seconds from the end of the* half. RWse's 25-yarder to Bill Kauth was the only score of the second half. Despite the loss, Minnesota saw some light of hope. The passing game rearely has worked better in the past couple of years. Soltis grabbed seven passes himself, perhaps a team record. The Gophers Gophers also moved pretty well on the ground in the first half when they had time. Of the new men, Hagberg looked good in spots. But Minnesota's defense was shaky and the team suffered from lack of depth and speed. 2 AUStin Stake in Trial MAJOR LEAGUE LEADERS (FINAL) AMERICAN LEAGUE Butting ('based on 400 or more at bats) — Williams, Boston, .328; Runnels, Runnels, Boston, .322; Kuenn, Detroit, .319. .
