Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, Nov. 9, 1968 13 Gamble Pays Off As Trojans Beat Hornets Wildcats Score But Lose To Lancers 13 Leonard Palm Beach ByEDI'LAlSTKD Executive Sports Editor LAKE WORTH - Palm Beach High Coach Len Brown, with a touch of sarcasm, said he saw some improvement in his Wildcat football team after its 13-7 defeat Friday night by Leonard's Lancers. "Hell, yes ," said the unhappy coach, "we scored tonight. That's quite an accomplishment." Actually the Wildcats scored twice or did hey? Their touchdown that counted was a hotly disputed one and the other TD was nullified by a Lake Worth 20 Riviera Beach 12 By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer RIVIERA BEACH Lake Worth Coach Bill Humphrey's decision to go for a touchdown instead of a field goal late in the first half, paved the way to the Trojans' 2012 victory over Riviera Beach's Hor-neis Friday night in a Suncoast Conference football game before a crowd of 1,000. Lake Worth ahead 7-6 at the time had driven lo the Hornets' five-yard line where it had a fourth down and goal-to-goal situation. With able tieid goal kicker Jack LaBay available, it seemed likely that Humphrey would call for the field goal.

Jerry Brown, Junior quarterback and son of the head coach, plunged into the line from two yards out and fumbled the ball into the end zone. It was ruled a touchdown and brought Burke out on the field like he was trying out for the Olympics as a sprinter. The TD stood, of course, and Terry Rowe's placement made it 7-0. The Lancers, however, aided by a fine punt return by Danny Stahl and a 24-yard pass play from Charlie Close to Ricky Dunn scored with 3:09 left in the first half. Close, a Junior quarterback, plunged over from the one-foot line. Bob Rease blocked Tom Bonner's placeklck attempt. The second half started on a funny note. John Messer missed the ball on his kickoff attempt. The officials hit Leonard with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike con ions with the officials that end-d with Palm Beach coaches irotesting that the clock was 'lermitted to run during several ime out situations in the closing ninutes. With Leonard in con-rol of the ball and 29 seconds teft, the officials called the Lancers for delay of the game. But the clock didn't stop despite cries from the Wildcat bench until 10 seconds remained. Brown, however, would not fault the officials, although his aides were quite vocal about it. "We just lost," said Brown. Bill Burke, the Leonard coach, didn't fault the officials either after the game. Instead he blamed the area press for almost causing an upset. "You guys must hate us," Burke said, "to make us pre-game favorites. Do you honestly think I would run up the score against any team like that 52-0 prediction in The Post?" A homecoming crowd of about Staff Photo Bv Ursula Seemann W ith the score still, 13-6, the Hornets took possession at their own 39 and drove for a touchdown in 10 plays with Khine once again slamming four yards for the score to bring Kiviera Beach within one point, 13-12. Bubha Saunders then missed the conversion try and the score remained the same with 3:52 left in the game. Lake Worth closed out the scoring three minutes later when Mike (Buffalo) slashed his way Into the end zone from eight yards out. LaBay's second PAT made It 20-12.

The game was played Friday night on Riviera's field, with Lake Worth taking a KEY IN DRIVE Chris Ferry, Lake Worth High fullback, slams into the Riviera Beach High line on a short run that was part of a 77-yard Tro- 20-12 nod. Humphrey explained his decision to go for the touchdown instead of the field goal this way: "Believe me we had ideas of going for the field goal. But we had noticed a weakness in the Kiviera Beach defense and we thought we could score on it. And the man was open in the comer of the end Jione just like we hud hoped." The five-yard scoring pass went from quarterback Jim Oat-way to Gary Jacob and although there was a fumble on the extra point try Lake Worth took a 13-6 lead with 1:17 left in the second quarter thai proved to be more than enough. The game billed as a defensive battle started off just the opposite. After Lake Worth was stopped following the opening kickoff, Kiviera Beach marched 57 yards in eight plays with workhorse Jack Khine hulling four yards for the six pointer. Mike Broyles missed the FAT try and the Hornets maintained a 6 0 advantage with 5:32 to go in the first period. But on the ensuing kickoff, Trojan Brian Domigan took the ball on his own four-yard line and dashed 96 yards down the middle of the field for the equalizer. LaBay then put Lake Worth on top, 7-6, with an extra point and the Trojans never trailed the rest of the night. After Lake Worth took a 13-6 halftime lead, both clubs fought to a defensive standoff In the third quarter with neither team ever seriously threatening. But Riviera Beach almost pulled even in the final 12 Carver 22 North Shore 0 By CHUCK OTTERSON Prep Editor DELRAY BEACH Carver's high-flying Eagles soared closer to the coveted District 8-B football championship Friday night with a 22-0 triumph over the stubborn but outclassed North Shore Mustangs.

But the first penalty against a player on either team a holding foul cancelled the effort. Palm Beach missed another good chance when the Wildcats recovered a fumble on the Leonard 23. But on the next play Brown fumbled and Rod Hutchinson recovered. It was an Intercepted pass that set up what proved to be the winning touchdown. Pat Van Wagner grabbed a Brown pass on the Palm Beach 38. Vince Colonna, who lost three fumbles, redeemed himself with a fine gallop to the PB 11. A pass Interference penalty moved the ball to the five and three plays later Close took It up the middle from a yard out. Bonner added the extra point with a kick.
