Palm Beach Pogt, Monday, December 6, 1976-D5 Patriots From Dl- Muncie suffered a back injury just before halftime. Muncie was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for x-rays. He returned after the game to the stadium to make the return home with the Saints. -1 1 I ,v .-.

Grogan, who had two pass completions nullified by penalties earlier, was intercepted on third down and New Orleans appeared to have possession at the New England 43. However, the Saints were called for roughing the passer and the interception was wiped out. That gave the Patriots a first down at their 44, and five plays later Grogan passed down the middle to Chandler for the touchdown. Grogan was a recipient of a gift score on his bootleg. He fumbled and the Saints recovered in the end zone, but the officials, without benefit of a television replay showing the Grogan fumble at the 2, ruled a touchdown.

Rolling to their fifth consecutive victory and seventh in the last eight games, the Patriots boosted their record to 10-3, tying the Baltimore Colts for the American Conference East lead with just one game left. A combination of a New England victory at Tampa Bay and a Buffalo upset of Baltimore is needed to give the Patriots a division title. However, the Patriots clinched the conference wild card playoff entry with yesterday's victory. Grogan threw seven duds before breaking a scoreless tie by hitting tight end Al Chandler for a 12-yard touchdown midway through the second period. It was Grogan's 17th scoring pass of the season and New England never trailed. Grogan scored on a 11-yard run late in the half and added his second touchdown on a 10-yard bootleg in the fourth period. He completed the scoring by throwing a six-yard pass to Ike Forte in the fourth period. The Saints, 4-9, could manage just Richie Szaro's two field goals of 50 and 29 yards. Fullback Don Calhoun, substituting once again for ailing Sam Cunningham, gained 113 yards for New England. It marked the fourth consecutive game that Calhoun bettered 100 yards. Dons Beat Indiana For Soccer Title PHILADELPHIA (UPI) - Junior midfielder Andy Atuegbu scored the game's only goal yesterday to give San Francisco a 1-0 victory over Indiana and present the Dons' with their second consecutive NCAA Division I soccer championship. Atuegbu, an All-American from Nigeria, gathered in a loose ball about 50 yards from the goal, dribbled up field, and scored with a 20-yarder into the top left corner of the net at 35:34 of the first half to give the sixth-rated Dons their third NCAA title. They won their first championship in 1966. ACCENT 424 So. Military Trail just south of Southorn Blvd. W.P.B., Fla. Til.

Which might explain why Simpson is into a career as an actor rather than being interested in becoming a coach when he finishes playing. His ambition in football is to play on a team that wins all 17 of its games. And to break Jimmy Brown's all-time career rushing record. Turner Kick Gives Denver 1 -Point Win DENVER (AP) Rookie quarterback Craig Penrose, in his first starting role, fired two touchdown passes and veteran Jim Turner kicked a 20-yard fourth-quarter field goal, lifting the Denver Broncos to a 17-16 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday. The triumph boosted Denver's record to 8-5 and marked the most victories for a Bronco team in one season. It also represented the first time in 17 seasons that Denver had swept its annual two-game series with the Chiefs. Penrose, who had thrown only six passes entering the game, tossed first-half scoring strikes of eight yards to wide receiver Haven Moses and 29 yards to tight end Riley Odoms. In the final period, he hit Moses on a 27-yarder and fullback Jon Key-worth on a 31yarder to help set up Turner's winning three pointer with 8:07 left. Denver needed a quarterback sack and three Kansas City turnovers in the closing minutes to hold off the Chiefs, whose record dropped to 4-9. Kansas City had converted a Denver fumble and a. short punt into touchdowns, and Jan Stenerud had booted a 31-yard field goal to put the Chiefs ahead 16-14 at halftime. But Stenerud's extra point try after the second touchdown was blocked by Denver's Jack Dolbin, ultimately producing the winning margin for the Broncos. "Records are nice," he said, "but the ultimate record is to accomplish what the Dolphins did. That's perfection and you can't top perfection. "Certainly, I'd like to win a Super Bowl, too. But I'd like that to be the final game of a 17-0 year. As Bette Davis said in one of her movies, 'Why shoot for the moon when you can shoot for the stars?' "If I can do that and get Jimmy's record, too, I'd feel that I had accomplished what there was for me to accomplish in football." It sounds a bit weird, unreal, coming from a fellow on a football team with a 2-11 record. "Yes, it looks like we have a long way to go," he said. "But you put (Jim i Braxton and Joe (Ferguson) back in the lineup and there's no better offensive unit in football. The only thing we need is a deep receiver, a home run type of guy like J D. Hill was and we'll be looking for that in the draft or by trades. "Our defense was just about the poorest in the league last year and has moved up a couple notches. We're playing a lot of young guys and they have talent but they need experience." Simpson paused and smiled. "They're getting a lot of hat." Still, it must be frustrating for a player of Simpson's caliber. He has had two straight 200-plus yard games, bringing his NFL-leading total to 1332, but his team has lost by wide margins. It is as if Babe Ruth were playing for the Atlanta Braves. "Sure, it's frustrating," he said. "This game's no fun if you don't win. But you can't let that affect you. All we can do is go out and do what we can. As a unit, the offense played well today. Here we are, a 2-11 team playing a 6-7 team which also is having its problems and we go out there and gave the people a great show. "As the year goes, you must look at the harsh realities. Some of us played well as individuals the last two weeks but we were beaten by better football teams. We didn't quit, we didn't go quietly. We performed to the limit of our abilities." And that, in summary, is Simpson's creed of life and football. One person asked what makes O.J. run. "Maybe it sounds corny and maybe it sounds naive," Simpson said, "but this is how I feel about it. Every time I go on the field I want to utilize to the fullest the talent God gave me. "God gave me the speed and the size and if I don't make the effort to use 100 per cent of it, I'm cheating The Man and cheating myself." "When you leave football," someone said, "how do you want to be remembered?" THIS HOLIDAY BE A"WISE MAN:' SHOP EARLY! The Amana Totichnuilic Ra-darange Microwase Osen re-olulioiwes miiTimaxe cooking.
