Locals Run Up 11 Touchdowns Against Hamburg Team BROW N GETS FOUR Coach Hammons Praises Blockers Who 'Paved Way for Victory " By Leonard Kills Coach Foy H. Hammons threw his Bobcat football machine into high gear Friday night and rambled all over the gridiron field here to smother Hamburg High School in the opening game of the season, 71 to 0. It was the worst defeat any Bobcat team has handed an opponent in many years. Led by Pete Brown, the 150-pound signal shoutcr who crossed the goal line four straight times, the Bobcats broke through the Hamburg defense to score twice before the game was. five minutes old. On Hope's second attempt to carry She ball, Brown swept around left end behind perfect interference, broke in- o the open as his mates mowed down would-bc-tacklers and dashed 70 yards to the goal line practically un- ouchcd. Brown's run "was followed a moment aler by another long dash with Payne carrying the ball. Hope received after Brown's touchdown, and on the first play Payne ' cut around left end. So perfect was the blocking, that Payne, like Brown, found himself in an open field and scampered nearly 60 yards to score the second touchdown. Both attempts for extra points failed. The Bobcats added another touchdown before th e quarter ended. Taking the ball, on the 40ryard line when , Hajpbuxs.-piintcd'but'bf bouna.s.'Pete,* Brown threw a pass to Kennedy, netting 30 yards. Japfc Turner and Stroud picked up several yards through the line and then Stroud v/cnt over on an 8-yard plunge for the third marker. Again attempts for an extra point failed. Team Play Is Perfect Although nearly equal in weight, the Bobcats completely outclassed their opponents throughout the game which saw nearly 35 local players in action. Coach Hammons withdrew his regulars near the end of the third quarter and sent them to the showers, the second and third string players finishing the game. At no stage of the game did the visitors threaten, and only twice did they advance beyond the 50-yard line. The Bobcats scored three touchdowns in the opening quarter, two in the second, four in the third and tapered off with a couple of more in the final period with tonchdown runs by Ray Turner, substitute back. Hope made 19 first downs as compared with G for Hamburg. All of the Bobcat touchdowns resulted from long dashes and running plays, except one, a long pass from- Brown to Hamilton, in the second quarter, who gathered in the ball with a clear field ahead of him. Soon iiflenvard Brown heaved another pass to Hamilton who dropped the I ball on the goal line. Hope kicked off to start the second half, but the ball changed hands immediately when Payne intercepted a Hamburg puss on the visitor's 30-yard lino. The Bobcats hit the line twice and found gabbing holes, and on the third attempt Payne curried the ball across. Hope received again, Stroud returning the kickoff to the 50-yard line. On the first try Brown sped around end for the remaining distance, but the play was nullified and called back (Continued on Page Three) Markets Hope Cotton Exchange New York CoUon Open High Low Cle>sc Oe-t 12.77 12 77 12.62 12.62 Dec 12.90 12.90 12.75 12.75 Down H! points from previous close.
