Telegram Photo INTO HIS ARMS came the football a second after this picture was taken and Copeland's Jim Tyler went int.o the end zone for his team's first touchdown of th* game late in the second period. Vikings Top Ingalls, 33-7 By BILL BROWN COPELAND — It wa s a great night for the Copeland High School Vikings. They treated a big homecoming crowd to a 33-7 win over the Ingalls Bulldogs here Friday and kept an undefeated record in Santa Fe Trail League play. The defending champions have only two contests between them and a repeat win of the league title. The Bulldogs, who had dropped only one game prior to arriving here last night, came to play football. And play they did, but the superior speed of the Vikings came through in the second half to score the decisive victory. Coach Eddie Cramer's Cope- landers had trouble getting started in a slow-moving first half which took more than an hour to play. After taking the opening kick-off they drove to the Ingalls 20 only to lose the ball on a fumble which was recovered b*y the Bulldogs' Bob Mills. Then the yisitors found they were in for a tough evening against the stiff Viking defense, and were forced to kick on a fourth down situation. This time Copeland found the Bulldog wall impenetrable and the Vikings also had to kick out of danger. InflaMs moved into Vikins? territory with a 20-yard pass to Junior Loewen. Then a delay of game penalty stalled the Bulldog offensive after it had, reached the Coipeland 16 yard line, and tfie Vikings held to take over on downs. Bringing the Copeland fans to their feet for the first time in the game was a nass from Mark Martinez to Jim Tyler — a combination which proved deadly for the visitors throughout the game — and Tyler ran about 60 yards -to cross the goal stripe. But the 'yells were nipiped in the bud by a referee's hat which was thrown down back at the Copeland 28 yard line where Tyler's foot «teprced ' on the out-of-bounds marker. Inealls again held and Copeland wa s forced to kick. The nuarter ended in a scoreless deadlock. The Bulldogs found it just as tough to move at the orceninu of the second neriori ?»nd kicked on a fourth down. T-aidng the punt was Jim Tyler who faked a reverse and ran wide to his right for a 35-yard return to the Ingalls 25. Then a clipping penalty against the Vikings stopped the scoring threat and Ingall s took over on their own 30. Four plays later the Bulldogs again had to punt out of danger and this time got one of their few breaks in the game when the Copeland safety man fumbled the ball as he tried to make a running catch and Ingalls recovered on the Copeland 30. But the visitors' glory was short-lived. On the next play the Vikings jarred the ball loose and pounced on it to regain possession. Then a M'artinez to Tyler pass moved the ball to the Ingalls 31, but the got tough again to stop the Vikes who missed a fourth down try for a first-in- ten by only a yard. Ingalls drove back Into Cope land territory but stalled on the 39 where the Vikings took over for the game's first scoring drive. It was set up by a pass from Martinez. to big end Phil Smith who was dropped only. 7 yards from pay dirt. The touchdown came on the next play by a pass from M' tinez to Tyler. Tyler also ran over the extra point t/) give the Vikings a 7-0 lead with only seconds left In the first half. The Bulldogs took Hie Idckoff but didn't have time to get started.
