Then Newman counted twice for a 13-0 high school football verdict. Fernando Tonarely scored (he first TI), going over from the eight, and Greg Leate intercepted a puss and lugged the hall 40 yards to paydirt. Dennis Flanagan kicked the point after the initial six-pointer. The first touchdown started with Dan Geary returned a La-Salle punt to the visitors' 40. Cleary and Tim Hulett ground their way down to the eight before Tonarely went into score. Dennis Flanagan kicked the extra point. With LaSalle trying desperately to get even with the Crusaders, one of its passes was snagged by Newman's Leate on the LaSalle 4(1 and he went all the way. Newman threatened once in the first quarter, but Bill Me-grath fumbled on the 17 after the HALT Newman High's Mike Miller (No. 87) and Dan Wickles (No. 72) close in on a LaSalle High runner in game Friday night at Cooley Associated Press The stretch run for the Southeastern Conference football title starts Saturday, with three key games expected to help break open the race. Georgia plays slumping Florida, and Louisiana State battles Alabama and Tennessee tangles with Auburn in a doubleheader at Birmingham. The twin bill is expected to draw about 140,000 fans prob-alv an all-time high and about 70,000 will be on hand in the Gator Bowl at Jacksonville to ' watch the traditional battle between Georgia and Florida. Georgia, Tennessee and Auburn have not lost in SF.C play, although Georgia and the Vols have ties marring their records. Auburn is 3-0 in league play, and Louisiana State is still in the title chase although the Bengals were beaten by Mississippi. Ole Miss takes time out Saturday to entertain unbeaten Chattanooga. Vanderbilt, enjoying its best start in years, plays at Kentucky, and Florida State invades Mississippi State in what should be one of the hottest aerial duels of the year. Outside the league, Miami challenges fourth-ranked Penn State, Navy visits Georgia Tech, Southern Mississippi travels to San Diego State, and Tulsa plays at Tulane. Some of the edge has been taken off Georgia's battle with Florida, because the once-heralded Gators haven't won for a month. Fullback Larry Smith, the league's leading rusher, is expected to play although he may be slowed by injuries which sidelined him in Florida's loss last week to Auburn. The Gators also have several other hobblers, while Georgia's Bulldogs are at near full strength. Georgia hasn't lost this season, although It was tied by Tennessee and Houston. Coach Vlnce Dooley has expressed fear that Florida may be fired up to "salvage what is left of the season by beating us." Trojans, Cal Collision May Decide Bowl Offers 4 Stadium. Coming up to Tim Hulett (No. 37). and left. the poll with a defense-oriented team that has limited its opponents to just 39 points In seven games. The key to opening the defense for USC undoubtedly will be quarterback Steve Sogge and Simpson, the workhorse running back who has gained 1,047 yards on the ground this season but was limited to 67 yards last Saturday by Oregon. The Golden Bears' defense is headed by middle guard Ed White while the offense revolves around Randy Humphries' passes to 6foot-7 receiver Wayne Stewart. Ohio State, meanwhile is an overwhelming favorite to whip Wisconsin, stretch its record to 7-0 and remain In a tie with No. 7 Michigan for the lead In the Big Ten. The Wolverines meet Illinois, also winless. At the same time, No.3 Kansas and No.4 Penn State will be seeking to extend unbeaten records and impress bowl scouts. The Jayhawks, 7-0, meet Oklahoma with an eye on an Orange Roosevelt Seacresl Satellite By DICK WARD DELRAY BEACH Sea-crest's Seahawks closed out their 18 home football season with a 28-0 win over the Satellite Beach Scorpions Friday night. The win left the Hawks with an unblemished 8-0 record and marked their fourth shutout in live home games. On the first series of plays. Comerback Leon Jenkins inter cepted a Satellite pass on his five-vaid line and ran it out to the 47. Halfback Dennis Matthews toted the ball 25 yards to keep the Hawk drive alive, and later drove three yards off right tackle to score the only touchdown of the first half. Seaerest received the second-half kickoff and promptly drove 78 yards in six plays to pay dirt. Matthews raced 27 yards around left end to the Satellite 34 to set up the touchdown. Halfback By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Southern California's standing as the nation's No.l college football team and several possible bowl spots Will be on the line Saturday as the season begins to edge into the phase affecting post-season bids. The Trojans, with O.J.

In the fourth period, with the game still scoreless, the Crusaders reached the 12 with a first down. A 15-yard penalty set them back, and then they were able to only get to the six before losing the ball on downs. LaSalle did a lot of passing and was quite successful in the first half, getting 80 of their total 107 yards during that portion of the game. Starring on defense for Newman wore tackle Ed McGann, end John Milling, and linebackers Pat Cooney and Rich Pepin. Newman passed only three times and completed none. Hulett gained 76 of his team's l.'il yards in 19 carries, and Cleary made 38 in 1.1 tries. First Downs Itushim: Y.iidaui-P.issinu Yatd.u;e ur?

Seas four feet. Inland waters choppy. Kennedy, Tonight with a good running game," the Kennedy head coach said. Ely's running is done mainly by halfbacks Dennis Holloway and Alton Evans. Both backs are breakaway threats from any spot on the field. Fullback Bill McFadden can be counted on to pick up needed short yardage on third down situations. Quarterback Isaiah Spicy likes to put the ball in the air when he doesn't give it to one of his backs. "We look for them to throw quite a bit," McCoy confirmed. Can Kennedy be expected to counter with an aerial attack of its own? "We plan to mix It up quite a bit," came the answer. "Once we find a weakness we'll gear our offense to it." Finding the weakness may be a bit of a problem for the Vikings. Ely has given up only 25 points in their seven games. The Vikings concluded a rough week of practice Friday, with McCoy's charges scrimmaging twice. Pass protection has come in for more than its share of practice time.

'mark into the game, with their hopes for the SEC title almost eliminated because of their 2-1-1 conference mark. Auburn, heading Into what . ranks as probably the toughest ' finishing schedule in the country, is counting on the passing ' of Loran Carter to clip Tonnes- see. The Vols, fresh from a 42 18 whipping of UCLA, have a dandy passer of their own in Bubba' Wyche, and their defense has been more impressive than Auburn's. Coach Ralph "Snug" Jordan" of Auburn expects "one of the best games we've had in a long, long time." The Auburn-Tennessee duel in Legion Field will be at night, after the Louisiana State-Alabama battle. The afternoon scrap is expected to be a defensive browl, with the Crimson Tide ranking as the ' league's stingiest outfit. Linebacker Mike Hall and guard Sam Gellerstedt head up the defense, which has been one of the new bright spots for Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant this fall. Alabama has been beaten by Ole Miss and Tennessee and probably is out of the conference race, but the Tide still ranks as a slim favorite over Louisiana State. The Bengals' hopes for their first conquest of Alabama since 1958 were dimmed when senior quarterback Freddie Havr was sidelined with an injury during the Ole Miss game. Southpaw Mike Hill will direct the Bengals for Coach Charley McClendon, who played for Bryant at Kentucky. Scott Hunter will quarterback Alabama which probably could nail down a post season bowl berth by winning. Bowl scouts will be at Birmingham and Jacksonville, with Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama and Louisiana Slate all prime candidates for a holiday trip. However, invitations cannot be issued until Nov. IX. only the second TD Vero Beach has yielded in eight games. Fine blocking by the Indians helped Dennis Downs score twice on runs of one and nine yards, and he also scored on an lH-yurd pass from halfback Charles Russ, after he took the pitchout from quarterback Tim Testerman.

I , - STUART - Vero Beach ground out a 27-6 win over stubborn Martin County High here Friday night for the Indians' eighth straight triumph. Three of the touchdowns came after sustained drives and were scored by rushing, and one of only two passes completed by the invaders accounted for the other. Martin County's Tigers scored in the closing minutes after an Hi-yard drive appeared to hog down at the II. On fourth down and seven to go, the Tigers sent in kicker Bo Walton, apparently hoping to settle fur three points on the scoreboard instead of a shutout. But Walton faked the kick, passed to Wallage Rogers, who failed to hold the ball, which bounced into the arms of John Thomas In the end zone. It was Clewiston I' i L'SC has won three squeakers in a row 27-24 over Stanford, 14-7 over Washington and 20-13 over Oregon and had Its poll lead over second-ranked Ohio State trimmed to a margin that could be wiped out by another lackluster performance. At the same time, the Buckeyes could move up with an impressive performance against winless Wisconsin no matter what the Trojans do. Southern California likely will be pressed by California, which has built a 5-1-1 record and moved into the No. 11 spot in with 5-2-1 record and placed the Eagles at 3-4-1.

Jets Can Clinch AFL Division Biscayne Greyhounds FORT PIERCE - West Palm Beach's Forest Hill High and Dan McCarty battled to a 7-7 standoff Friday night in a Sun-coast Conference gridiron collision. The game, an Eastern Division feature, turned into a defensive battle with each team able to muster only one other threat besides their scoring efforts. The Eagles drew blood first with a 43-yard drive, that used only nine formations. Dave Gil-lotte with 2:11 remaining in the second period slipped in from the one-yard stripe for the touchdown and Robin Blanton booted the placement. Jackie Robinson was the featured runner in the march, hitting the line five times for 20 yards. It took Forest Hill until 5:15 of the third period to get on the scoreboard with Sandy Cushman crunching over from two yards out. William Wilson added the tying point. Cushman and Burt Hathaway shared the 11-play penetration. The deadlock left Forest Hill Penn St. Drills In Rain UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) Penn Slate drilled in the rain last Wednesday, and coach Joe Paterno said he wouldn't mind more of the same if it would stop Miami of Florida's passing attack here Saturday. Paterno may have been kidding about the rain, but there's no Joke about Miami's Dave Oil-vo, Arnold, Pa. The senior quarterback has led Miami to five triumphs In seven games, with 98 completions of 176 attempts and eight touchdowns. The fourth-ranked Nitlany Lions, 6-0, will have to contain Olivo better than they did Army's Steve Llndcll. Although Penn State topped the Cadets 28-24 last week, Lindell completed 18 of 29 tosses for 258 yards and two scores. "Last week was more of a question of Army being good than our pass defense breaking down," Paterno said. "If Olivo throws as well as Lindell, they're going to complete passes against us." Bob Phillips, Lion assistant coach who scouted Miami, said the Hurricanes throw 35-40 times a game. "Olivo will send out four or five receivers on all passing plays, and likes to flood one side with receivers," Phillips said. They have a pro-type offense with wide receivers and split backs. Olivo has a great flanker back to throw to in Ray Bellamy and a great split end In Dave Kalina." Bellamy has caught 29 passes for 347 yards and one touchdown while Kalina has hauled in 31 throws for 453 yards and four scores. Some observers are saying the Hurricanes are the last major obstacle to a major bowl bid for Penn State. IZN.( II.M.AN Staff Writer BELLE GLADE Boca Raton's battling Bobcats withstood a second half aerial bombardment here Friday to eke out a 7-6 win over the Belle Glade Gold en Rams before 2.000 alumni Appreciation Night fans. George Sparling, visiting quarterback, sped around his own left end in the opening minutes of the second quarter for the only touchdown for the victors and a spinning extra point kick by Chuck McWilliams, that barely crossed the bar, proved to be the margin of victory. Sparling's run was good for 24 yards. Just prior to the score, the slippcrty quarter-hack hit W illie Morris with a it-yard pass for a first down on the 24-yard line, after an interference call had given the Unheals a first down on the II). Tommy Altman took command of thcRams offense as the closing minutes of the half near-ed to pace the host eleven to 74- vard touchdown march that was conxluded when the elusive quarterback clashed five yards for the score with 1:10 left to play before the half.

Kickoff time is 8 p.m. Both teams come into the eon-test with unblemished records. I'ompano's Ely has won seven games, while the Kennedy Vikings are 6-0. Adding to the explosive nature of tonight's battle Is Kennedy's post-season playoff aspirations. A victory would likely assure Kennedy of district 7-A representation in the playoffs, to be held early in December. "The way I look at it," Viking coach Ben McCoy said "we would have 52 points if we beat Ely and no other team could catch us." State playoff berths are determined through a system whereby schools are awarded points for victories gained, with more points going for a win over a Class AA school. Kennedy is In class A status while Ely is AA. McCoy is not about to underestimate the Tigers. He has scouted them four times this season, and on each occasion has come away impressed. "They're a very gtod ball club NEW YORK (AP) If the New York Jets have as good a day this Sunday as the pro prog nosticator had last Sunday, they can consider the American Football League's Eastern Division title theirs. A victory over Houston would virtually clinch the crown for the Jets, who then would have four fewer losses than Houston while the Oilers would have only four games to play. The'situation is not so clear in the Western Division where Kansas City leads Oakland and San Diego by a half game. All three play weaker teams Sunday and are expected to continue the close race. Not expected to continue, however, is the sudden success that came out of last Sunday's picks. The record was 11 right and two wrong, the best of the season, with only the Chicago victory' over Green Bay and the Cleveland triumph over San Francisco spoiling the day. That meant a 5-0 mark In the AFL and 6-2 In the NFL for season totals of 27-11 and 43-20, or 70-31 over all for a .693 percentage. Here are this week's selections with all games Sunday. AFL New York 24, Houston 14 So maybe Joe Namath won't throw another touchdown pass the rest of the season, but the Jets have proved they can win without his scoring tosses.
