f f • flpr* f . -: ^» • ' vpJM«-^ r 'M.;r^jf*^M*|[jl^ti Lakin Tightens Grip on HPC By BOB GREER LAKIN — Lakin High's Broncos were favored to edge the Elkhart Wildcats here Friday afternoon in the game billed as the High Plains Conferencee 1962 football showdown. Coach Keith O'Connor's Broncs didn't just edge the Wildcats — they whipped the socks off of them. Final score was a surprising 33-6. The win virtually sewed up the crown for the Kearny County club, which now has only Johnson remaining on its' HPC slate. Johnson has just one league victory this fall, that over winless Satanta. Elkhart, coached by Bill O'Hair, is now 3-2 for the season. Only previous defeat had been a 27-6 decision to Syracuse. Friday's victory cinched at least a tie for the title for Lakin. A turnout of some 500-600 fans was on hand. Weather was sultry during the first half. But chill, blustery winds moved in during the final half. Lakin has given up only two touchdowns this fall while rolling up 130 points. Last time for the Broncs in the HPC throne room was in 1955, when Lakin and Elkhart shared the leagu e banner. The host Broncs had a big edge in statistics and the backfield gained steady chunks of yardagee all afternoon. Quarter back Fred Anschutz, fullback Page 14 Garden City Telegram Saturday. October 20, 1962 Jetmore Buries Beavers With Deluge of IDs JETMORE — Coach Garlon Jaroigan's Jetmore Longhorns slugged the Scott City Beavers, by 26-0 here Friday night to stay in contention for the Western Kansas Education Assn. football title. The margin of victory was a surprise, for the game had been rated a near-tossup. Jetmore has won its last four games all in WKEA play. The Longhorns lost their first two this fall, by identical 6-0 scores to Cimarron and Kinslefy. Those were non-league games. Friday's result set the stage for the title showdown between LaCrosse and Jetmore. That will be here next Fridlay night. LaCrosse has won all six of its starts this fall. Jetmore scored one touchdown in every quarter Friday. The Longhorns notched a score the first time they had the ball. Scott received tiie kkkoff and punted, and Jetmore moved back to take the lead on a sustained march. Halfback Mike Hayes got the touchdown on an 18-yard blast through left tackle. The run for conversion was successful. In the second frame, Hayes scored again, galloping 58 yards up the middle. The run foi point missed, and Jetmore took a 13-0 lead into halftime. Quarterback Larry MeKibbdn raced around right end for five yards in the third frame for the third score. That capped a drive of some 40-50 yards. Halfback Bob Glunt took a pitchout and ran for the conversion. F'nal score w a s a 6-yard run by halfback Cleon Carder. The run for point missed. Scott never threatened seriously, although the Beavers did drive to about the Lonttfiorn 20 in the final frame against Jetmore substitutes. Jetmore led by 11-G in first downs and had a huge 332-G1 bulge in net rushing yardage. The Longhorns hit 2 of 3 passes for 11 yards, while Scott completed 4 of 10 for 46 yards. The winners were tagged for 50 yards in penalties, com/pared to 40 for Scott. Jetmore intercepted one pass and lost one fumble. Soott lost no interceptions or fumbles. Jetmore 7 6 7 6 — 26 Scott 0000—0 Dennis Clark, and halfbacks Ernie Ochoa and Bill Urie hammered away steadily. Chuck Rodriquei was a standout for the losers, both on offense and defense. In the first quarter, Lakin ground downfield steadily the first time it had the ball. But the Broncs gave up the ball deep in Wildcat territory on downs. The next time, the Broncs scored — after another grinding drive. Clark ran the fiital two yards, and try for point missed. Lakin got two more touchdowns in the second quarter, both by Ochoa. He ran 9 yards for the first and 19 for the second. Both conversion tries failed, and Lakin led by 38-0 at intermission. Elkhart showed signs of life ior the first time in the second half. The Wildcats came back 62 yards in eight plays with the kickoff to get their only score of the day. Rodriquei sparked that thrust with runs of 26 and 8 yards. Fullback Chuck Wretling got the final four yards on a blast at right guard. Quarterback Morris Gillaspie missed on run f. point. Lakin then roared back for its fourth score, going 70 yards in 12 plays with the next kickoff. All were running plays. Urie galloped 20 yards for that score, taking a pitchout from Anschutz. He outfoxed an Elkhart defender en route, speediing around right end. With 4 minutes left in the third, Anschutz passed to Jim Kisel for the conversion which made it 258. In the fourth, Gillaspie was pushed back three straight plays. Finally, on third down, he was hammered down in the Wildcat end zone for a safety. In on the tackle for Lakin were Bob Green, Don Dahl, Bob Schulz, and Mike Erickson. Lakin then took the free kickoff after the safety and scored again in six plays. Anschutz pitched to Kisel, who caught the ball in the clear at the Elkhart 28 and raced in. Th e play covered 45 yards. Only 10 seconds remained in the game when that score was made. Dennis McVey's kick for conversion was blocked. Coach O'Connor said his whole line played excellent defense, and he singled out linebacker McVey for a standout game. The Broncs had a whopping 16-4 edge in first downs and netted 278 ground yards to just 95 for the losers. Lakin hit 4 of 9 passes for 96 yards, compared to 2 of 6 for 16 by Elkhart. Neither club intercepted a pass. Lakin lost 1 of 3 fumbles, and Elkhart never bobbled. Lakin lost 25 yards on 5 penalties, and Elkhart 30 on 4 calls. The winning Broncs punted just once for 42 yards, and Elkhart averaged 31 yards on each of its four boots. Urie netted 71 yards in 16 carries, and Clark made 97 in 16 tries. Ochoa picked up 82 yards in 17 runs, and Anschutz ran 4 times for 8 yards. He did all of Lakin's passing. Larry Bloyd netted 20 yards in 6 carries. • Telegram Photo THIS PLAY WAS worth a two-point safety for Lakin in the final quarter of the Broncs' big High Plains Conference win over Elkhart. Quarterback Morris Gillaspie of Elkhart (in white helmet) was slammed back into the end zone, almost fumbling on the play (note position of the ball). The play started on the Elkhart 2-yard line.
