phfQP fi v Q ft JL Most Succesful Southern Cal Spoiler To ND, 20-17 Season In Decade j O fj Perfect Season Denied LOS ANGELES LP Quarterback Craig Fertig passed for two touchdowns in two minutes and 10 seconds of the final quarter Saturday, rallying Southern California to a fantastic 20-17 upset of Notre Dame, the nation s top-ranked college football team. The startling upset wrecked the anticipated story-book finish of Notre Dame and Coach Ara Par-seghian, who was lured from Northwestern to rebuild Notre Dame's football fortunes and had forged a 9-0 record. Notre Dame rolled along as expected for the first half, taking a 17-0 lead before Fertig got the Trojans started. They picked up one touchdown in the third quarter and cut the lead to 13-17 In the fourth period when Fertig put together an 8-yard march, capped by a 23 yard pass to Fred Hill. Moments later, Fertig hit Rod Sherman with another touchdown pass and the Trojans had it immmmmmmmwsmmmm An Irish Lullaby NOTRE USC DAME Pint Downs 1 J7 ushio VardooO .... 147 154 Paitino Vardaoo .... 323 171 15 jj u w Panes Intercepted B J 0 Punt, 3-31.1 13 J Fumbles lost 1 i Yards Penalised St 70 t" K A? '1 Southern Cal went Into this, the 36th meeting with the Irish, with a 6-3 over-all record, and for the entire first half it seemed a certainty quarterback John Huarte and his aerial magic would carry Notre Dame on and Southern Cal down. Fertig, a senior, put Southern Cal on the scoreboard after taking the second half kickoff. A 68-yard parade ended with Mike Garrett plunging over from the one to make it 17-7. Hill's touchdown ended an 88-yard march. The try for the extra point was missed and the Irish were still ahead, 17-13, with 4:45 left. Then came a costly penalty for Notre Dame. With the ball on the Notre Dame 34, Jack Snow, the favorite target for Huarte's passing, punted and Garrett was smacked for no return deep In his own country. But Notre Dame was set back 15 yards for holding and Snow from his own 19 punted again. The Trojans took over on the Irish 40 and the sun began to set for the big team from South Bend. Fertig passed for 23 to Hill, who lateraled to Garrett for two. He found Hill In the end zone for the 15 but the officials ruled Hill was falling out of bounds when he took the ball. Fertig was held for no gain and on fourth down, eight for a first down, came the winning 15-yard throw to Sherman. Up until the final crushing minutes, this had been a brilliant show for Huarte, who finished the game with 18 completions out of 29 throws, for 272 yards and one touchdown. But Fertig captured the laurels with his tremendous show 15 completions out of 23 attempts for 225 yards and two touchdowns. In the first half, which belonged to the Irish, Huarte connected on 11 of 15 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown, and the big Irish line was giving him enormous protection. The opening score was a 25-yard field goal by the Irish's Ken Ivan, and In the second period the Irish struck for two touchdowns. Huarte threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Snow for the first, ending a 71-yard thrust. The Irish, not very successful running against the spirited but lighter Trojans, went again to the air for the second touchdown. Huarte made It 16-0 with a perfectly executed play from the five. He faked a run into the line and pitched out to Bill Wolski, who crashed over. Ivan kicked the extra point the last the Irish were to score this summery afternoon in Memorial Coliseum. NOWF.

Stichweh, outdueling the more celebrated Staubach in a battle of senior field generals, was mindful of 1963 when the clock let him and his mates two yards shy of a stunning reversal. Army saw an 8-0 lead erased on the second period efforts of Staubach and Pat Donnelly plus a two-point conversion pass to Phil Norton with 25 seconds left before intermission. But when Navy's Tom Williams was far short and wide of a 49-yard field goal try moments before the end of the third quarter, Stichweh took firm command of the game. Starting from his 20, Stichweh, the Williston Park, N. Y., Cadet with a fine runner, good passer label, called It's Never A Contest Celts Paste Royals, 129-98 Special To The Enquirer BOSTON Defensive specialist K. c. Jones turned sharpshooter to get the Boston Celtics off and running to a fantastically easy 129-98 victory over the Cincinnati Royals Saturday night. The fast-breaking and ag gressive Celtics sprinted into a 22-11 lead as they hit on 11 of their first 13 shots. K. C. and Sam Jones combined for 18 of those points. Then John Havlicek replaced Sam Jones and scored 19 points In the next 18 minutes as the Celtics forged a 68-42 halftime lead. An Indication of the Royals' futility in the first half was the fact that Bud Olsen was top scorer over that stretch with 10 points and Oscar Robertson was the leading rebounder with four. The second half was loosely played, but the Royals' never managed to mount a serious threat after falling behind by 34 points, 87-53, by the halfway mark of the third period. At the end of that stanza, the Celtics were safely ahead, 95-72. The victory was the third in a row for the Celtics over their chief Eastern Division rivals this season and sent th? Royals into a Sunday night game against the New York Knlcks at Cincinnati four games behind the Eastern leaders. Robertson emerged as the game's top scorer with 23 points 11 of them com- Upsets over Navy Saturday. on his talents for a key 17-yard fake pass and left end sweep to his 48. On the next play, he lofted a long aerial to end Sam Champl, who stopped short, feinted his way of four defenders and hauled his reception to the 19, good for a 33-yard advance. From the 13, Stichweh personally ushered the ball to the three where, on fourth down, Nlckerson had his moment of retribution. His field goal kick was high and true, more than making up for the fact he was wide on an earlier conversion try. Army was on the scoreboard in Just three plays when linebacker Sonny Stovers led a charge of five defenders, who dumped Staubach hard In his end zone for a safety. The Cadets needed only three plays to cover 54 yards on John Seymour's climax running early in the second, but Pat Donnelly Emmmmmmmmmmmm A Humiliation BOSTON Bontiem . . . Counts . , . .

Oft-injured Donnelly, healthy enough to get the nomination for defensive duty, set the Middies rolling offensively midway In the second period. Navy used the last 19 scrimmage plays of the first half to go 69 yards, sophomore Tom Leiser diving the final yard on fourth down with 25 seconds left. Donnelly carried six times for 19 yards, including the two big fourth down gambles to give Navy its momentum. A critical 15-yard penalty against Army for holding set up the first fourth down crisis to which Donnelly a three-touchdown scorer last year responded. Paul Dietzel, the Army coach who was 0-2 versus had 14 points and 10 as-Sists Boston's Willie Naulls. who needed 21 points to reach the coveted 10,000 career mark, fell five short with 18 points. The defeat was the worst suffered by the Royals since this same Boston team took them apart, 149-117, on March 10, 1963, also In Boston Garden. It also marked the second time Boston has humiliated the Royals this season, doing it by 28 points, 122-94, in an earlier meeting. The Jones' boys didn't miss a shot in the early going and Boston was ahead, 25-13, when Royals' coach Jack McMahon began to shake up his club. With Arlen Bockhorn sidelined with a leg injury, Jay Arnette and Olsen saw early action, replacing Adrian Smith and Jack Twy-man. But Havlicek also came off the bench at the same time and the Royals got the worst of the exchange as the former Ohio State star seemingly couldn't miss from outside. By the end of the first period Boston led, 38-19, as the Celts had connected on 16 of 23 shots while the Royals were making good on an ordinarily respectable eight of 19. 11-8 Navy before Saturday, Incorporated some of the Southeastern Conf e r e n c e philosophy he had previously employed at Louisiana State Into the battle plan. After the quick safety, Stichweh came up with quick kicks on third, then second down, the latter for 64 yards. Army's "thin gray line" and thinner secondary the slim 17 worked for field position, played for the Navy error and tried to get the Middies to wear themselves out on the attack. Dietzel also armed his soldiers with a winged-T offense, and a double-winged-T alignment with a slot and splits. It was from this latter setup that Seymour ran first 17, then 32 yards to the Navy five from where Stichweh passed the final five yards to Champl In the rear of the end zone.

A brief hot-shooting spurt by Olsen enabled the Royals to draw within 19 points, 51-32, but that was the Royals' final threat as Havllcek's shooting clinched the verdict by haJ time. mmmmmmmssmmmsm NBA Roundup (NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION) STANDINGS EASTERN DIVISION Club Won Lett Pet.

Tex University of Cincinnati climaxed Its most successful football season in a decade Saturday as the Bearcats, led by halfback Al Nelson's record-shattering performance, smashed Houston, 20-6, to wind up with eight victories In 10 games. The score couid have been i ' " ' aisfe"1 bipser as the Bearcats scored in all but the third quarter, just missed putting over a couple mora touchdowns, and only gave up Houston's lone touchdown In the final 10 seconds on a 58-yard desperation pass against a UC defensive unit of third and fourth stringers. Nelson, a Cincinnati hometown product, climaxed an unbelievable senior year by running for 144 yards on 29 carries, giving him 973 yards for the season, and breaking a longstanding UC one-year record of 959 yards set by the immortal Roger Stephens In 1947. Nelson, who also scored one touchdown in his personal onslaught, moved to third place nationally in both rushing and points scored. It was the sixth time this year the former Taft high sprinter had gained over 100 yards. Nelson jumped from 12th place to third in rushing, to trail only Brian riccolo of Wake Forest and Jim Grabowskl of Illinois who have closed their seasons with 1044 and 1004 yards, respectively. His 82 points for the year vaulted him past Bob Tim-berlake of Michigan, to trail only Piccolo with 111 and Tulsa end Howard Twilley who has 101. While Nelson sparkled like the Texas sunshine and 70-degree temperature Saturday, a slim crowd of only 10,000 in massive Rice Stadium soon learned that this Cincinnati team was not to go down to Its seventh straight loss to the Cougars. The Bearcats swept 81 yards to a touchdown the first time they had the ball, and their defense led by Bob Steinhauser time after time came up with the big play to stop Houston. Only the finishing play of the game kept it from being a massacre. Cincinnati wound up with a net of 350 yards to Houston's 275, and 58 of the Cougars' total came on Its TD play that served as meager solace to the outplayed charges of coach Billy Oeman who finished the season with two victories, six losses and a tie. The opening Cincinnati drive was a thing of beauty as quarterback Brig Owens, in one of his best performances, engineered an 84-yard march In 14 plays, once coming up with a key 12-yard pass to Errol Prisby on a third down and 10 situation. Nelson did most of the ball carrying on this march, although Bill Bailey once smashed 11 yards on a draw play shortly before he injured his ribs, and saw little service the rest of the way. Nelson smashed over center for three yards to score, and Owens kicked the first of two extra points witn 8:48 still left in the opening stanza to give the Bearcats a 7-0 lead they never lost. Houston drove to the UC 17 shortly after, but lost the ball on quarterback Jack Skog's fumble, the first of two for the Cougars, both of which UC recovered to thwart scoring thrusts. Royce Starks' Interception of quarterback Bo Burris' pass on the Houston 47, after the ball had been tipped by Houston end Don Petty, set up UC's next score midway in the second quarter. r- ri i mi m tvw tv . mum vt in ti..JT .

The touchdown came on Owens 10-yard pass over the line to Prlsby who shook out of the grasp of one cougar defender, picked up a couple of blockers, and ran into the end zone at the far corner of the field. That made it 11-0 at the half, and early in the third stanza the 'Cats were knocking at the door again. They smashed from their 33 to the Houston 11 where, on fourth down, Owens' field goal attempt from the 19 was wide to the left. Later In the third quarter the Bearcats sped 85 yards in 13 plays to score on the first play of the fourth period. This drive Included one of Nelson's patented long runs on a pltchout at left end which gained 32 yards, and a nifty "look in" pass from Owens to Jim Hoose for 12 yards to the Cougar 10. mmmmsmmtsM 'Admirable Nelson HOUSTON First dewna ruthlno 7 First downs pasxna 4 First downs on eeneltiee.. 13 Net yards ruthlne 113 Net yards eo"tf 143 Pastes ettemeted II Peuos completed I Fenea had Intercepted . . . 1 Number at punts ........ 3 Puntinp tveroio II I Penalties 7 Yerds penalised 31 Fumtlee 3 Fumbles lost 2 UC 1 1 19 279 71 II 4 I 431 4 24 mmmmmmmmmmiiiiiiimmM Owens himself carried the final Inch for a touchdown on fourth down, but this time his extra point kick was blocked. Houston then moved from its six all the way to the UC eight-yard line in 12 plays with Dick Post doing most of the damage from his left halfback spot. But this effort went down the drain when Thompson fumbled at the line of scrimmage, the ball rolled into the end zone, and Nelson recovered for another of his heroic acts of the day. But four plays later Nelson failed by inches to make a ifrst down on the Houston 18. UC had one last scoring opportunity when Houston turned the ball over on Its 28 trying for three yards on fourth down. Here Houston began throwing the ball in desperation, and finally connected as Skog, far behind the line of scrimmage on the Houston 42, zeroed In Dick Spratt running on the UC 35. Spratt caught the ball and outran the last Bearcat chaser. Said Houston's disappointed yeomen later, "We didn't play well at all. Cincy knocked us around a lot which resulted In a defensive letdown. They have real fine backs and Brig Owens is almost impossible to cover." , CINCINNATI HOUSTON .. .7 7 0 420 . 0 O 0 44 Cincinnati NeUon, 3, run (Owens kick).
