Page 10 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, October 23, 1984 Dickerson Leads Rams' Win ATLANTA (UPI) — Containing Los Angeles Rams running back Eric Dickerson is easier said than done. The Atlanta Falcons knew that was what they had to do if they were to have a shot at beating the Rams twice in the same season for the first time — but they couldn't do it. Dickerson, the No. 2 rusher in the NFL, battered the Falcons for 142 yards on 25 carries Monday night — including a 10- yard touchdown jaunt — while leading the Rams to a 24-10 victory that avenged a 30-28 loss in Los" Angeles barely two weeks ago. In the process, Dickerson, a second-year man out of Southern Methodist who gained 164 yards last week, increased his season total to 911 yards, just 36 behind Chicago's Walter Payton in their battle' for !he league rushing ti;ie. He had 108 of those yards in ihr rirst half while the Rams plained that the Falcons were hitting him late. "I guess they teach them to take cheap shots," he said. "I won't say they are a dirty football team, but I don't call the way they hit so late as being good football. No. 27 (Atlanta defensive back Tom Pridemore) did a headstand on my back when I was down and getting up. "But, we are not intimidated by late hits," said Dickerson. "It is not going to change the way we play. We especially wanted this one after losing to them (on a last-second field goal) two weeks ere Lui v ~ t quart of tne ••Th :ding a 21-3 lead with second-quarter ns.

THE FALCONS, who have lost three of their last four games, dropped to 3-5, four games behind the 49ers at the midpoint of the season. The Rams' only points outside the second quarter was an 18- yard field goal by Mike Lansford with 7:33 left in the game after Los Angeles had marched from its own 14 all the way to a 4th-and-goal at the Atlanta 1. "I was disappointed we didn't put the game out of reach in the second half," said Rams coach John Robinson. "Dickerson helped us control the game with his running and Ellard and the special teams were also posi- ^tv • "»*.,. , .* jfL.^A''* United Press International Eric Dickerson looks for yardage against Rams lives. This was a good win for us to have going into the 49er game this weekend." The Falcons, who have scored 10 or less points in three of their last four games, had a 39-yard Mick Luckhurt field goal in.the second quarter and got their lone touchdown with 1:08 left to play on an 18-yard pass from Steve Bartkowski to Stacey Bailey. "We like to play the Rams, but we never got into the game," said Bartkowski, who completed 20-of-31 passes, but for only 144 yards. "Our offense never got going enough to take them out of their defensive game. Mental errors and trying so hard caused us to make our own mistakes."

Cass enters the game with everything to gain. They'll be well-prepared. It will be a whole lot easier game if we've got the ball."; Arnold: "Physically they're bigger up front and that could create a problem for us. They lost their tobest quarterback three weeks agoa and that has hampered their passing. The passing scares me to death. If we can keep them on the ground I think we'll have a much better chance. Teams that do both, passing and running, give us a lot of trouble. Last week (35-6 loss to Twin Lakes) we made some mistakes. We gave them the ball in good field position and that put us in a 21-0 hole. As long as we don't give them the ball in good field position we'll be o.k." •LEADING PLAYERS: Northwestern: Dave Willey rushed for 143 yards and two touchdowns in Northwestern's 24-14 win over Maeonaquan Friday, Maher rushed for over 100 yardsand a touchdown; Cass: Fields hit 10 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown last Friday against Twin Lakes. •WORTH NOTING: The Tigers rushed for 308 yards against Maconaquah Friday.

(UPI) - Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, his team firmly in first place in the NFC Central, said Monday he is wary of the Detroit Lions in the second half of the season. The Bears improved their record to 5-3 with a 44-9 drubbing at Tampa Bay Sunday. Chicago holds a two-game lead in its division at the halfway point. The lead is technically three over the Bucs, as a tie between the two would give the Bears the advantage because Chicago beat Tampa Bay twice during the season. But Chicago, 3-0 in its division with a date at home against Minnesota Sunday, has not played Detroit in 1984. The Lions beat Chicago twice last year and are 3-5 this season. "They are a very good football team. They started 1-4 one year ago and won the division," Sports Shorts Basketball Rules Clinic Tonight The IHSAA Basketball Rules Clinic will be conducted by the North Central Officials Association at 7:30 tonight at Peru High School. Coaches, referees, players and spectators are invited to attend. Basketball Coaches Mini-Clinic The Indiana High School Basketball Coaches Association will host a mini clinic for all area coaches Thursday from 8:45-11:50 a.m. at the Wabash High School gym. The program is open to coaches at all levels. Coaches will be admitted with their IBCA card. Membership will be available at the doors, which will open at 8:45 a.m. Ditka said. "What were they, 1-5 this year? And now they are 3-5. They have a great runner in Billy Sims and have good people on defense." Ditka noted the Lions have played in the last two weeks like the club they were when they won the division one year ago. Chicago plays Detroit at home Nov. 18 and at the Silverdome Dec. 16. Ditka also isn't overlooking Minnesota, which lost to the Lions Sunday. But the Vikings may face Chicago without starting quarterback Tommy Kramer. "They are a different team without him, and they may not be as effective," Ditka conceded. "But Archie Manning can run the ball and is a threat." Ditka didn't say the club has the division title locked up. But quarterback Jim McMahon, who threw three TDS against the Bucs, said the club will win the division. Myers Wins Forecasts Bruce Myers of 810 N. Pearl St. was the only one of 52 entries to go 10-0 in this week's forecasts. Eight others tied for second with 9-1 marks. Myers will recieve a pair of free tickets to a Chicago Cubs or White Sox game next summer. Greg McClure led the panel with a 9-1 record to go to 64-16 on the year. Because all but one area team plays Wednesday night forecasts will take a short break and return next week. W L T Pel.
