Bucs., Cardinals tiedforNL East By KEN RAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer A loss to the New York Mets might shake up the National League East, but it doesn't shake Pittsburgh Pirate Manager Danny Murtaugh. "I don't think there's any reason for a wake," noted Murtaugh after a 7-2 loss to the Mets Sunday.

Star Sports Pat§ knock off Ram§ Hope falls, 13-7 The Camddn Fairview Cardinals handed the Hope Bobcals their second consecutive loss and third loss of ihe year last Friday night 13-7. The game was played on a field that was made slippery by an excessive amount of moisture. During the first quarter of the ballgame, neither team could mount an offensive threat. In the second quarter, Terry Alexander, who carried the ball 45 limes earlier against Ashdown, carried the ball in from the two for the Cardinals. The kick was good and the score was 7-0. But the Bobcats came back when Curley Davis, part of a twin-brother act for Hope, broke open a 53-yard run to bring Hope within one. Jud Martindale, the durable Bobcat fullback, kicked the extra point to knot the score at 7-all. The first half ended in a tie. In the third quarter, Rodney Franklin capped a 64-yard drive with a three-yard plunge lo paydirt. The kick failed and the score, 13-7, proved the final margin. Fairview had one punt return for a touchdown mullified in the fourth quarter by a peanlty. Coach Lawrence Hutson said after the game that the whole defense had a good game for Hope. "Mike Butler, Jim Rhodes, Jud Martindale, Tim Boyd, Johnny Campbell, Terry Martin, James Robinson and Reddies, Tech open AIC action By The Associated Press Henderson State College, ranked seventh in the NAIA football poll, marked up its second shutout of the season Saturday — primarily due to good defense, A 31-yard field goal by Bo Adkisson and a 5-yard touchdown run by quarterback Terry Blaylock gave the Reddies a 100 victory against Arkansas Tech in the opening Arkansas Intercollegiate Conference game. In other AIC action, State College of Arkansas rolled over Baptist Christian, 62-0; Southern State crushed Central- Methoidst, 26-0; and Mississippi College sneaked by the University of Arkansas—Monticello, 30. Tom Short's high, unretur- nable punts and the mobile Tech defense gave the Wonder Boys possession of the ball three times on Henderson's end of the field. But the closest they got to scoring was the 24 where Short's 41-yard field goal attempt was blocked. The Wonder Boys didn't budge against Henderson in the second half- and the good field position they had in the first half lessened. On four of Ihe Reddies' first five posssesions of the second half, they had an average of 42 yards to go for a touchdown. Tailback Joe Smith led all Henderson rushers with 96 yards on 21 carries. The leading ground gainer for Tech was James McDaniel with 46 yards on 20 carries. "They played the fool out of that defense," Henderson Coach Ralph Carpenter said. "We came in here with one goal in mind. That was to win ihis ballgame, and I think we not total effort. I can't single out anybody. Ricky Orr all played good defense. We had no complaints about our defense at all." Hope's season record now stands at 1-3 with a conference mark of 0-3.
