|| THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, October 7, 19«1 Roses To Wildcats Of Rosedale Cyclone Spark Dims Too Soon For a few minutes last night it looked as though Ottawa High's Cyclones had the spark that wins football games glowing brightly. The first time they got the ball, they swept 57 yards on the ground on Ottawa University's Cook Field to take a 7-0 first-quarter lead over the Rosedale Wildcats. Then the spark went out; the Cyclones' defenses crumbled under a Rosedale aerial-ground attack that was as sweet as the name of the town. The final score was 26-7. Rosedale's favor, as coach Harold Wallace's Cyclones made it nothing-for-three for the season. The first quarter was as sweet for Ottawa as the last three were bitter. The Cyclones kicked off and then forced Rosedale to punt from its 18-yard line. Moving from their own 48, the Cyclones scored in 15 ground plays, Mickey Reed, shifted from halfback to fullback for last night's game, slamming over for the tally from the 1-foot mark. And he wasn't through—he slammed over for the extra point, too. On this march the Cyclones drew their first of several penalties, a 5-yard loss for backfield in motion. By the time the game was over, Ottawa had lost 60 yards on six penalties. Rosedale seemed to have more than just their passing and rushing going for them. Take their first touchdown drive, for in stance: The Wildcats seemed to have bogged down in the sticky defense sparked by Ottawa's tackle Alan Rybolt and linebacker Doug Schultz. On one play, Schultz pulled down G. Murray on the Ottawa 27 for an 8-yard loss. But on the next J. Patti picked up Quarterback B. Larson's fum ble and didn't stop running unti he had crossed the double stripe It wasn't a TD. Not yet, a clipping penalty put Rosedale back on the 20. Then Larson hit R. Binns with t pass and the 150-pound senior raced to the Ottawa 1 before Schultz pulled him down. Larson hit off tackle for the TD, and B Chase moved in with the extra point to knot the score, 7-7. That's the way it stood at halftime. The second half was long anc dreary for Ottawa. Rosedale kicked off to start the nightmare and Ottawa moved from its own 23. Reed and Mike Shepard batteml their way out to the 36 in four plays. A 15-yard illegal hands penalty put the Cyclones back to the 21. A quick kick by Ottawa was hil by a Wildcat, and the ball wobbled through the air out to the 3J where I ~.rson picked it up and lugged it into the end zone. Chase ran over the extra poinl to put Rosedale ahead, 14-7. And that's the way it was after three quarters. Except that the Wildcats had the ball on Ottawa's 8- yard line when it ended. From that point, Murray took a handoff from Larson, peeled ofl to the left and turned and hit D Risker with a pass in the enc zone. A penalty against Ottawa gave both Larson and Chase an opportunity to try their toes for an extra poinl, but neither made it. On the last scoing drive, Rosedale looked as good as Otawa die on the Cyclones' first and onlj paydirt drive. It started on the Wildcats' 27. A run by Geer anc a 19-yard pass, Larson to D Poore, moved the ball to the Ot tawa 49. Murray carried the ball thre times and D. Risker once to move to the Ottawa 22. The Wildcats' were penalized to the 37 for illegal use of hands, but that didn't faze them. Larson passed to Poore on the next play to set Rosedale up on the six. Then Murray threw another TD pass, this one to Binn's. Larson's kick was no good, and he final score was recorded. Ottawa's shortest shortcomings appeared to be a weak passing attack and a weaker pass defense, ["he Cyclones actually gained more yards on the round than Sosedale, 108 yards to 95. But the Wildcats completed 8 of 11 jasses for another 95 yards and wo of their four touchdowns. Ottawa completed only 3 of 9 )asses for 12 yards, and Rosedale intercepted two of the Ot- awa passes. Rosedale outdid Ot- awa in first downs, 10-8. Here's the scoring at a glance: Ottawa 7-0-0-0—7 Rosedale 0-7-7-12—26 For Ottawa: Reed on plunge from 1-foot line; Reed plunge For extra point. For Rosedale: Larson on run from 6; Chase plunge for extra point. Larson on 31-yard run picked up parti f.lly blocked kick; Chase plunge for extra point. Pass, Murray to Risker for 6 yards. Pass, Murray to Binns, 6 yards. * * IT'S OKAY WITH HIM - Cincinnati Manager Fred Hutchinson gestures as he talks to newsmen before third game of World Series today.

Navy Sinks Foes And Referee, Too By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer A shoeless quarterback, a major upset, a disabled referee, and an odd injury served to introduce the season's third big college football weekend Friday night. Navy's hard-charging Middies not only ripped Miami's offensive patterns at key moments en route to a 17-6 upset but also piled up a referee so badly he had to leave the game. Penn State quarterback Pete Liske, who inherited the No. 1 job only this week, ably directed the Nittany Lions to a first-half lead and capped his effort by literally running out of a shoe on a 33-yard touchdown that capped State's 32-0 conquest of hapless Boston University. Florida used Ihe old sleeper play and a second-string quarterback to engineer a second-half comeback and a 14-3 victory over winless Tulane. Fired-up Navy gave halfback Jim Stewart beautiful downfield blocking as he swept 83 yards on a swing-pass play that accounted for a 7-0 second-quarter lead over hvo - louchdown favorite Miami. Navy defenders made the lead stand up, charging so hard they not only rocked the Miami runners but also put Referee John Lynch out of the game after he had got in the way of a Navy back.

Chargers To Boston By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS San Diego makes its second straight trip into the East Saturday to get the American Football shortened schedule on the way. The Charges, only unbeaten club in the league, will be after their fifth victory, with Boston the proposed victim. There are only three games on the schedule this weekend, with New York, secure on top of the Eastern Division, and Oakland, in a tie for last in the Western Division, taking a rest. Dallas journeys to Denver, and Buffalo invades Houston for Sunday afternoon games. San Diego wnet into the East last week and ran into a hornet's nest at Buffalo. The Chargers, slowed to a walk by Buffalo's tenacious defense, had to rely on defense and kicking to win 19-11. Boston may offer about the same problem. The Patriots haven't been winning much more than Buffalo, but they have been giving the opposition plenty of trouble. New York edged Boston 21-20 and 37-30, and the Patriots crushed Denver 45-17 and nosed out Buffalo 23-21. * * * 37-0 Score May Not Have Won It By YOGI BERRA Written for The Associated Press CINCINNATI (AP) -A guy can get hurt playing left field here where we play today's third World Series game.

The decision will be made today when the Kansas -State Fligh School Activities Association meets in Topeka to discuss, among other things, Olathe's use of an ineligible player in non-league games with Otlawa and Paola, The player, Dennis Duncan, a sophomore member of the third unit, was found to be ineligible after a records check showed he had attended a Florida high school and had not been at Olathe the required 18 weeks before playing. The boy's older brother had graduated from Olathe two years ago, according to Gerald Anderson, Olathe principal, so it was presumed that Duncan had been there last year. W. P. Shepard, Ottawa High School principal, said today that he had received a telephone call and letter from Anderson explaining the situation. "We'll just wait and see what they do in Topeka," Shepard said "You're not proud to win a ball game in this fashion, especially when you get beat 37-0."

The latest injured Cardinels are offensive end Hugh Mrlnnis and a flashy punt return specialist, rookie Pat Fischer. Mclnnis injured his left knee, and Fischer suffered a shoulder separation in last weekend's 30-27 upset of the world champion Philadelpha Eagles. Two other Cardinals, fullback Frank Mestnik and defensive end Joe Robb, may see only limited action. Mestnik has a sprained arch and Robt a sore foot. The Cardinals and the Giants both have 2-1 records along with the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles and the Cleveland Browns. Philadelphia is host to the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3), who likely will play without old-timer Bobby Layne. Cleveland is at home against the Washington Redskins (0-3). Dallas steps over into the Western Conference to meet the Vikings at Minnesota (1-2). Two other clubs deadlocked for first in the Western Conference face each other, the Baltimore Colts visiting the Green Bay Packers in the top tilt in that division. The Los Angeles Rams (1-2) travel to San Francisco to battle the "shotgun" attack of ihe 49ers and may have to do so without their No. 1 quarterback, Zeke Bratkowski. The Detroit Lions, stunned by last Sunday's 49-0 licking by the 49ers, are back home against the Chicago Bears (1-2) The Packers, 49ers. Tolls and Lions all have 2-1 records. telling Joe Garagiola that left field here reminded me of tht dump near the St. Louis clay mines where we played 20-23 years ago. It had no fence in left but there was a rise and the deeper you went back the higher you'd go. I played in Cincinnati twice before. Once was many years ago in an exhibition game. Then I was here for the 1953 All-Star game. But I never paid any attention to left field. I was a catcher then. The rise in left is bad enough but you must also worry about the sun. It shines right in your eyes. I had a lot of trouble Friday working out for 90 minutes under game-time conditions. I got out the darkest pair of sun glasses we brought. But even with the dark glasses you can lose the ball. The sun is that strong. Left field, where we play the next three games, rises about six feel above third base but there's a sharp three-foot rise starting from about 20 feet in front of the green concrete wall. The wall is 12 feet high. The foul line goes close to the fence and our bullpen men are goinq to have trouble seeing anything but right field. So they can't help me much. Running two feet above the ground along the wall are some pipes. If a ball hits this pipe it may drop dead I may throw some old balls against it just before the game fo see the carom. I also noticed left field in back of third base has some dips, or holes, if you wish. It's nothing lik« a pulling green, that's for sure. Can Cassius Take It? LOUISVILLE, Ky.
