It was a gigantic struggle between the two Mid-American Conference powers, and while it was a disappointment for the record Miami homecoming audience of 16,922, they went home with heads high knowing full well the Redskins gave their all against the unbeaten Falcons. In the final analysis, Bowling Green's powerful land thrusts spearheaded by a bullnecked 235-pound sophomore, Stewart Williamssimply wore down the gritty Redskins. The Falcons now are comfortably seated on top of the MAC with a 4-0 mark and an impressive 7-0 season ledger. The loss killed Miami's hopes for even a co-championship. The Redskins now stand 4-2-1.

Fullback Jim W 1 s s e r, halfback Jay Cunningham and Williams accounted for BG's touchdown maneuvers. The Falcons' game clinching TD promotion was set up by an interception of an Ernie Keller-mann pass.

Williams carried the brunt of BG's attack, plowing on land for 98 yards and Cunningham picked up an additional 48. Miami's Peddie, equally as effective as BG's Williams, rammed through the Falcons for 92 yards. Bowling Green moved 69 yards with the opening klckoff to score, with most of the yardage coming on ground chewing thrusts of Williams and Cunningham. After sailing to the Miami two-yard line, fullback Wls-ser smashed over to hike BG In front 7-0 following quarterback Jerry Ward's extra point kick. Miami Immediately after, duplicated the BG strike by marching 70 yards to deadlock the game at 7-7. Peddle, In a real workhorse demonstration, carried the ball 10 times in the drive, and bulled over from the three to culminate the drive. Trout converted to tie the game at 7-7 with 16 seconds left in the first period. Midway in the second period Miami manufactured a go-ahead push. Unable to move after maneuvering to the BG 14-yard line, Miami set up its field goal kicking crew (See more pictures on Pages 2-E and 6-E). Trout, booting from the 21, kicked perfect to shove the Redskins In front 10-7 with 4:40 left in the first half. Bowling Green took the ensuing klckoff and turned it into a TD, moving 07 yards. Cunningham slammed over for the -score from the three, spiraling the Falcons in front 14-10 with 43 seconds left In the half. Kellermann, who had not had a pass intercepted this year, found his first aerial In the second half picked off by the Falcons' Jerry Jones on the Miami 47-yard line.

With Peddle again supplying the most punch, and Kellermann spicing the Unbeaten Boston Wins 8th Straight Celtics Send Royals Reeling, BY JIM SCHOTTELKOTTE Of The Enquirer Staff BOSTON Boston got all the treats and Cincinnati all the tricks this Halloween night as the Celtics convincingly smashed the Royals, 122-94, in a first meeting of the two National Basketball Association Eastern Division powers Saturday night before 10,341 in Boston Never, not even in last year's Eastern piayoii n-nals, did the Celtics humiliate the Royals as they did In this game, and the Royals can only hope It was an off night and not, an omen of what Is to come. At that, it was Boston's eighth straight victory without defeat and it put the Celtics three games up on the Royals in the early struggle for East honors. The Royals, who return to Cincinnati Sunday night for what they hope will be a much easier game against the Detroit Pistons, made a game of it through the first half, although trailing most of the way, and still were within range midway in the third quarter, trailing by seven points. Then Cincinnati's offense went completely to pot,' and the Celtics broke it open. In a nine minute and 36 second stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters, the Royals, the NBA's most prolific scoring team, failed to make a field goal end were outscored, 28-4. By then, Royals' coach Jack McMahon already had thrown In the towel, and Boston's Red Auerbach was happily inserting his own subs. The bare statistics showed Sam Jones leading the Celtics with 22 points, Tom Helnsohn scoring 20, and the much-improved, hard-driving Larry Siegfried tallying 18. But for the Royals, the defeat mostly again spelled two words Bill RusselL He grabbed 24 rebounds and scored 15 points, but, Title Win drive with some of his old" time passing gyrations, Miami zipped to the Bowling Green seven. Then Kellermann, spying Dwyer in the end zone, fired a perfect aerial strike for the TD. The same combination, a Kellerfnann-to-Dwyer pass, accounted for the extra points, but still left Miami behind, 21-18 the final count. Bowling Green initiated another drive and punched to Miami's seven but there Mike Cohen and Jim Shafer nailed Wallace to squash the march. BOWLING GREEN ... 7 7 7 0-21 MIAMI 7 3 0 8-18 Bowl.

Most haunted was Wayne Embry, who could score only four points, and Oscar Robertson who got but 24. Only Jerry Lucas' strong defensive rebounding (he grabbed 20 rebounds) kept the Royals in the game early, but Luke's offense, too, was thrown off by the omnipresent Russell as Jerry tallied only 13 points. Boston's biggest lead of the game was 31 points, 97-66, achieved by Celtic reserves, including Ron Bon-ham, and for the first time this year all the Royals' squad got into action, including George Wilson. Bonham had eight points and Wilson half that many. The only sour note for the Celtics was the inability of John Havlicek to play for a second straight game. The former Buckeye has water on the left knee, the same knee from which he had cartilege removed In an operation this summer. But Boston didn't need him this night. Early, the Royals chose not to challenge Russell, and that worked fine as long as their outside shooting was accurate, which it was in the first two minutes when the Royals built a 9-2 lead. But Cincinnati started missing, Heinsohn began firing hooks and Jumps and it turned into a see-saw first quarter which ended in a 26-26 deadlock. BY DICK FORBES Of The Enquirer Staff A visiting band played a ballet number "Slaughter On 10th Avenue" in a post-game performance at Nlppert Stadium Saturday, but for what had been a merry homecoming crowd five minutes before, the song might as well have been 'Death On Clifton Avenue.' " Because one crucial error in an otherwise wonderful Unlverslty cf Cincinnati" football game ruined what victory, and in turn re-could have been a 15-14 suited in a 17-15 triumph j"1 j KSStodS i nlfSSa . i., i.i i irwii.-wiwHIl' BecGee Attack Shifts Into Bowling Green quarterback Jerry Ward fakes to fullback Steward Williams, then pitches out to halfback Jay Cunningham What the quarter amounted to was Russell simply conning the Royals out of baskets on one side and Lucas making sure the Celtics never got a second shot with his strong defensive rebounding. The Royals' final first-half lead was at 31-30. Then Russell and Heinsohn, who had 25 of the Celtics' first half points, led a short spurt that put Boston up by seven, 40-33, and the Celtic lead was eight, 45-37, with 3:20 remaining In the first half. Oscar and Adrian Smith began firing again over Boston's defense and brought the Royals within four, 5248, at the end of a first half in which Cincinnati's shooting, thanks to Russell's' demoralizing Influence, was a mediocre 17 of 48. The Celts, not so hot themselves, shot 20 of 57. The Jones boys, Sam and MAJOR COLLEGES LOCAL George Washington 17, Cincinnati 15. Villanova 31, Xavier ll Bowling Green 21, Miami 18.

Although they had been outplayed by the District of Columbians for most of the" afternoon, the Bearcats were clinging to a one-point margin, and were in the happy position of hav- ing to punt the ball on fourth down on the UC 41 with Just two minutes to play. Suddenly the tide turned on a play that made center Dennis Woodruff the most dejected young man in Ohio and perhaps the entire Midwest. Woodruff, who had just replaced Jerry Momper as the Bearcats substituted their defensive unit, centered the ball far over the head of Brig Owens, who had been back to kick. Owens chased the ball, finally grabbed it, and tried to kick with GW tacklers on top of him. It was no use, and the ball skidded clear back to the 20-yard line. The Colonials then could gain only three yards on three plays against UC'a frantic defense, so on fourth down Mark Gross kicked a 36-yard field goal with 26 seconds to play that meant victory. Although Cincinnati seemingly had the game won, the Colonials who -Enquirer (Bob Free) Sequence) Photos Iliffh Gear who turns the corner and scampers nine yards for a first down in the first quarter touchdown drive against Miami. 122-94 and the Celtics again extended their lead in a stretch when Arlen Brockhorn was called for a technical after bitterly disputing a call by officials Willie Smith. Brockhorn's replacement, Jay Arnette, gave the Royals some inspiration, helping them trim a 63-52 deficit to 69-62, but the Celtics went on another breakout, Heinsohn, the Jones and Naulls sharing the points and Oscar getting a technical, again from Smith, for a vocal outburst. That explosion made It 78-62. Moments later, Siegfried drove on Tom Thacker, the fourth guard used by Cincinnati coach opposite Robertson, for a three-pointer, Sanders hit a basket and Siegfried scored from out for an 85-63 Boston third-quarter lead.

One was a brilliant sophomore quarterback named Garry Lyle, who carried the ball 22 times for 119 yards. The other was a Colonial defense that did what no other team has done before put the clamps on one-two Sunday punch of Owens and Al Nelson, limiting Owens to only 34 yards and Nelson to 87. It remained for Errol Prisby to give GW its only serious headaches. He carried 55 yards on five carries, 11 per try. The GW defense showed ' It meant business early by stopping a 46-yard UC drive on the 24, forcing Owens to . attempt a field goal which was both short and wide.- Early in the second period, however, Cincinnati put on Its only real sustained drive by going 97 yards In 17 plays to a touchdown, even , though the thrust was momentarily stalled by a 15-yard penalty for unsports- . manlike conduct. Fullback Ted Coppola climaxed the drive by smashing one yard for a touchdown, and Owens kicked the extra point. v But George Washington . got this back almost at once. traveling 70 yards on a TD . march of its own to bring : about a 7-7 half time tie. The Colonials had a little : luck on the third-down touchdown play, however. Lyle, overwhelmed by UC defenders, was falling down when he threw wobbly pass Into the end zone. The ball was tipped in the air by two UC. defenders, but it fell Into the arms of Jon Rae- ' more who was on his knees in the end zone. Gross, kicked the extra point for the tie. (See picture on Page 2-E., Starting on Its 13 early-in the third period, GW using tricky reverses and sometimes running from a "shotgun" formation-traveled the length of the field on 11 plays to score. .The TD came on LyleV pass to end Paul Flowers, who licked Prisby in the-end zone and caught the; ball unmolested. Again Gross kicked the point-after ' for a 14-7 lead. Cincinnati suddenly caught fire in the fourth quarter after GW had made , the Bearcats look futile for an entire period. ;; Taking over on the UC 38, the Bearcats went the dls- tance in seven plays, aided . by a 15-yard penalty for; piling. The 'Cats found gap-" ing holes in the middle of ; the line where Nelson and ' Owens took turns sprinting t h r o u g h, and Nelson ran 10 yards for a touch--down after shaking off . four Colonial tacklers. " : ; Going for the two go-, ahead points, Nelson ran the left side to make them, ' and UC had a 15-14 lead with 10:45 to play. The ' Bearcats did a great job of ' halting every GW thrust after that until the game's only critical errorWoodruff's bad center snap. Owens, who had a bad day no matter how you look at It, could complete only four of 10 passes for 53 yards while Lyle was connecting on six of 12 for 68 yards two of them for Touchdowns. Cincinnati, ninth In the nation rushing with 216,8 yards per game before the contest, was held to only 143 on the ground against GW's 186. It was only the second loss In six starts for the , 'Cats but may have hurt -their post-season bowl chances. Both the Blue- bonnet and Sun Bowls were " looking at them. The oddsmakers who es- . tablished UC a three-touchdown favorite better revise their systems because George Washington, swerving its record at 3-3, was a vastly underestimated team. GEO.
