THE OTTAWA HERALD Saturday, November 11, 1961 Cyclones End Grid Season In 13-6 Defeat By A. I. VAN CLEAVE A minute's failure at the dose of the second half was more than the Ottawa High Cyclones could make up for in the other 47 minutes last night, as they dropped their season-ending football game at Bonner Springs, 6-13. The Braves of Bonner decided the outcome by scoring 13 points in less than a minute's time, starting with John Mienke's 11-yard touchdown run with a minute and 29 seconds left in the first half. Regaining the ball on an onside kickoff, the Braves used a pass, Herman McConico to Wayne McDonald, for a 26-yard touchdown play. McDonald plunged for the extra point, -and the Braves had their 13 points with 41 seconds still remaining in the second quarter That was all the Cyclones gave the Braves, except several frightful moments and a look at the power running and the heels of Fullback Mickey Reed, Ottawa's big senior fullback. Reed gave the noisy Bonner crowd something to think about in the third quarter with a 41- yard touchdown run and the spark that produced an 86-yard rushing gain in the 12 minutes. Bonner opened the second haU with its third onside kick try- only the first was successful- giving Ottawa the ball on the 50. A penalty against the Braves and a Reed run moved the bal to Bonner's 40. Ottawa fumblec and recovered on the next play on the Braves 41. From there, Reed pulled into the clear around left end and outran everybody on the field foi Ottawa's 6 points. His extra poin jlunge failed. The Cyclones were knocking on Bonner's door less than two min utes later, after the Braves fum bled the kickoff and Ottawa recovered on the Bonner 31. Drive by Reed put Ottawa to the two but the Braves held. The Cyclones, who bogged down on the Braves 17 in the secont quarter, threatened again in th fourth, moving again to the Bon ner 17 where the Braves took ove on a fumble recovery. Ottawa bested the Braves rushing yardage, 205 to 176, an beat them in first downs, 8-6. The loss left the Cyclones witf a 2-win, 6-loss record. They bea Olathe by forfeit and nailed Emporia, 7-0. No Idea To Move A's Says Finley BOSTON (AP)-Charles Finley, owner of the Kansas City Athletics, says he has no intention of moving his American League baseball club but "might apply for a transfer if they make it tough for me." "They," explained Finley Friday, refers to Missouri interests who "planned a year in advance to sabotage my club." Finley, national chairman of the Christmas seal campaign, was honored at a luncheon in Boston attended by American League President Joe Cronin and Boston Red Sox officials among .others.' 1 ] Finley, who broke with General Manager Frank Lane and Manager Joe Gordon before his freshman year as owner was over, says the A's will be better in 1962. "Last season we played our youngsters to give them much needed experience and I'm sure this step will prove beneficial next summer," Finley said. "I signed all our players for 1962 even before the 1961 season finished, the first time in baseball history that I know this ever was done. "I know we'll do better because of the experience our kids got and the fact we have a very happy ball club. We sacrificed 25 or 30 games letting these kids get their experience but this will pay dividends." Red Sox General Manager Dick O.Connell dropped a note into a silver bowl being presented to Finley. It read: "What do you want for Dick Howser (star shortstop)?" >*f.'.What do you want to give us for Howser?"" Finley asked O'Connell later. "I'm ready for the old answer. 'Let me think it over for few days and I'll call you back.'
