"Anyone who throws 50 passes deserves to have a couple Intercepted," shot back the smiling Cooper. Both coaches were exaggerating. It's doubtful that Pahokee's Blue Devils would have won, even if It had not been for the two "lucky" interceptions, (actually the Seahawks intercepted four.) And the Blue Devils didn't really throw 50 passes (James Hickman threw 22 and completed 10 for 159 yards and two touchdowns. ) The game was a wild offensive battle, providing plenty of action for the 2,800 fans In attendance. Seacrest piled up 360 yards rushing in notching its seventh victory without a loss. The defeat was Pahokee's second against four victories and one tie. While the bigger, stronger Seahawks managed to hold Pahokee to 13 yards rushing, they had trouble with the 5-7, 158 pound Hickman until late In the second half. The Hawks Intercepted a pass on the last play of the third period and picked off three more in the final quarter.

"We also changed from a balanced set to a strong set," the coach explained. "It gives us a little more strength and helps our passing, too, because the defense has to key on the strong side against runs." ai.-, a, wmmmmn mi'i"" mm Staff Photo by Until Seemann FOREST HILL HIGH'S GREG BROWN INTERCEPTS RIVIERA PASS . . . During first half action of game at Kettler Field Friday Roosevelt 14 North Shore 6 By ED PLAISTED You would have thought For-st Hill High football Coach ,'erry Jacobs would have been pleased with his Falcons' 20-12 victory over the Riviera Beach Hornets Friday night but he vasn't. "This was one of our oorer games," moaned Jacobs ninutes after the Suncoast 'onference Eastern Division ;ame at Kettler Field. "We jave them both touchdowns and our defense was verv poor." Jacobs did find something that pleased him. The running of fullback Sandy Cushman, the passing of quarterbak Dick Hopkins and the play of offensive ends Tom Abbott and Jim Anderson. Hopkins completed nine of 15 passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns to Abbott while Cushman made 109 of his team's 122 yards rushing. "Abbott and Anderson were Just great tonight In their blocking," gushed Jacobs over the loud Juke box music blaring from the Forest Hill locker room. It was the third straight victory for the Falcons and gives them a 5-2 won-lost record this autumn. The Hornets are now 4-3. The turning point of the game, played before about 2,800, came with 7:42 left in the contest. The Falcons had a fourth and goal on the RB three yard line and they held a 14-12 lead. Hopkins, 6-foot-1 junior, caught Abbott with ''-1 1 V, Staff Pboto by Until SHnan vo led a first half rout, using practically the entire ration of Hurricane running backs, and as many pass receivers as Miami carried for 35-0 lead at Intermission. On the opening series of the game, Ollvo moved Miami from Its own 30 in ten plays for a score. Vlnce Opalsky carried for the final two yards, and Jim Huff kicked the first of five extra first half extra points. Pittsburgh seriously mounted a scoring attack as they had the ball only three times in the first half. h Lake Worth Cardinal OTTERSON Editor Randy Cooper whey they met at at the Pahokee gridiron, The game was only 2 minutes and 32 seconds old when Sea- crest's Dennis Matthews swept his own left end and streaked 59 yards to pay dirt. Before the night was over, Matthews had picked up 146 yards in nine car ries. Adding to the Seachawk's rushing total were quarterback Steve Hardin (16 carries for 83 yards and three touchdowns) halfback Ronnie Mack (8 carries for 78 yards and one TD) and-fullback Bob Allen (10 carries for 56 yards). Hardin completed only one pass, a short one over the mid die which Mack hauled In and toted 42 yards for the score. Tom (the toe) Pignato connected on five of six extra point attempts. The scrambling Hickman's touchdown passes covered 39 yards to John Osbome and four yards to Leopold Sterling. The other Blue Devil TD came when 125-pound Walter Frank Osborne picked up a Seahawk fumble at midfield and raced 50 yards to score. Robert Mcintosh kicked two extra points. GRID DUST Sterling, the leading rusher in the Western Division of the Suncoast Conference, was held to 14 yards In the 13 carries by the hard hitting Seacrest defense. His longest run a 30-yarder on the Blue Devils' first play from .scrim mage, was nullified by a holding penality. . .Pell disagreed with those who claimed Seacrest as big as it was last year. "They're bigger," he Insisted. "Jijst look at 'em". . .Tackle Norm Seab-rook's and linebacker John Sly-dell were defensive standouts for the Blue Devils.

"This week we turned our practice over to our seniors and they did a great job!" What Mike? about the play of son ' "He played a good ball game," Humphrey understated. What's next for the Trojans? "The big one against Riviera Beach," Humphrey answered. GRID DUST Newman's Cooney and Lake Worth's Benefiel are cousins andmet each other for the first time at Friday's game. Cooney was a defensive standout in a losing cause and set up Newman's only TD with an Intercepted pass. Benefiel scored all of Lake Worth's fourth quarter points . . .

"After the penalty," Sutton recalled. "My boys really got fired up. That was the play that gave us the game."

Coach Bill Hobson's North Shore team came out with Intentions of throwing the ball as quarterback Mark Zammitt passed his first two chances and the results were 21 and 30-yard pickups.

GRID DUST - North Shore running back Kevin Smith, out of action since the third game of the year, may soon be back, he said Friday night. "I hope to be playing In two weeks," Smith said. "The treatments on my leg has been coming along good." Smith is sidelined with calcium By TODD OWERS Staff Writer-Lake Worth's talented trio of Mike Humphrey, Chris Perry and MlkeBeneflel hammered Cardinal Newman's line into submission by a 25-6 count Friday night In a high school football game played at Cooley Stadium. By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer Roosevelt's streaking Maroon Devils sat back for three and one-half quarters and waited for North Shore's game Mustangs to run out of gas and then roared to a 14-6 victory in a non-confer ence high school football game at the winners Field. North Shore was in control for three quarters, clinging to a slim 6-2 advantage before a crowd of 1,500. But then the adrenelln ran dry as quick-stepping Charlie Brown raced 61 yards for the winning touchdown with 7:11 left in thi game. Roosevelt Coach Alfonso Sut-on's after-game comment were not surprising. "They (North Shore) outplay ed us for three quarters," Suttor said. "But we really got fired ur in the last quarter and pulled the game out." The win was the Maroon Dev ils' fourth straight after dropping their first three of the season. North Shore which played Friday night with only 23 players is now 4-3. Roosevelt's patented sweep, which has been so effective in the Devils' four consecutive de cisions, was held in check for most of the game but It was the play that finally put Coach Sut ton's charges on top to stay. With North Shore still holding a 6-2 lead, Mustang punter Ron Geek boomed a 34-yard kick from his own eight to 46. But a clipping penalty against Roosevelt pushed the ball back to the Devil 39. Roosevelt was visibly upset by the penalty call and when it came to the line of scrimmage, it was obvious the Devils were fired-up. Brown a 168-pound senior took a pitch-out from quarter BUT BROWN IS BROUGHT DOWN HARD BY JACK EVANS . . . It was Brown's second of two interceptions Hurricanes Crush Pittsburgh, 48-0 Before 600 spectators, the Trojans wore down the young Crusader front wall with 14-point barrages In the second and fourth quarters to gain their fourth victory of the year. Humphrey, a 5-foot-8, 150-pound halfback and son of Trojan Coach Bill Humphrey, was the big ground gainer for Lake Worth. He picked up 195 yards rushing and scored two first half touchdowns. Fullback Mike Benefiel was the Trojans' second-half workhorse and scored both fourth quarter touchdowns. Benefiel set up the game's final score by bulling the ball down the Crusader one yard line on three successive carries and then crashed into the end zone for the tally. Perry raced for 87 first half yards, mostly around Newman's left end and scored the first touchdown on a 10-yard end sweep. Jack LeBay added the point and Lake Worth had a 7-0 lead. With Lake Worth leading 21-0 minutes before the half, Newman showed signs of mounting a drive. Halfback Dan Cleary, a 5-foot-150 -pound senior returned the Lake Worth kickoff 18 yards, to the 45 yard line and on the next play raced 20 yards around end. , After the intermission, Newman linebacker Jim Cooney picked off a Jeff Bankston pass and raced 18 yards, to the Lake Worth one yard line.
