AWKS AIR BOMB INDIANS BY CHUCK OTTEKSON Prep Kditor VERO BEACH - Sieve Har din and Ernest Williams, perhaps the finest aerial combination in .Seacrest High football history, teamed up for the big play of the season Friday night to give the unbeaten Seahawks a ! fantastic 20-13 triumph over pre-j viously-undefeated Vero Beach before a standing-room-only ! crowd of 10.IXX) screaming fans 1 13 all. Hardin then engineered ithe 76-yard drive that enabled the Seahawks to clinch a tie for the Suncoast East Championship and move a notch closer to the coveted district 4-AA crown, j On the first play of the drive jHardin hit speedy halfback Den-inis Matthews for a 39-yard gain to the Vero Beach 37, where Vero safetyman Steve Bartoluc-ci made a touchdown-saving tackle. Seconds later, with a fourth and nine situation staring him in the face, Hardin connected with Williams for a 12 yard gain. Vero Beach was charged with pass interference on the play and the Hawks elected to take the penalty, moving the ball to the Indian 21. On third and six with the seconds ticking away, Hardin once again faded back to throw, but this time big Gary Parris Vero Beach's S-foot-four, 192- pound all-state end wrestled him to the ground (or a 13-yard loss. So, with 1:37 left in the game, Seacrest had the ball fourth down and 19 yards to go, on the Vero Beach 30 yard line. A tie would .virtually assure the host Indians of a state playoff berth and leave the Seahaw ks as undefeated also-rans for the second straight season. But the cool Hardin was having no part of a tie. Once again he calmly faded back, ignored the fierce rush being put on by Parris, Bernie Blanton, Junior Knowles and company, gave Williams time to get open on an in-and-out pattern and hit him with a bullseye inside the five. Williams bolted into the end zone with 1:29 showing on the clock and Seacrest fans went wild. It was his seventh touchdown pass reception of the season and ninth of his career. Both are school records. Tom Pigna-to's conversion made it 20-13. Vcro's final hopes were ex at the Citrus Bowl.

The game was everything the overflow crowd could have asked for. Twice Seacrest shot out in front, only to have Vero Beach come back to tie it up. Then came the dramatic winning rally. The Seahawks scored the second time they had possession of the football, following an errant Vero Beach pitchout and a short 22-yard punt which gave the visitors the ball at the Indian 36 midway through the opening period. The drive consumed seven plays, with Hardin connecting with Williams on a 15-yarder for the score on a fourth and three dituation with 5:04 remaining in the first quarter. GRID DL'ST Seacrest 's rushing defense, which had given up slightly more than ,'!U yards a game prior to Friday night, yielded 162 to the hard-running Indians. Russ accounted for 87 yards in 20 carries and Downs, who piled up 63 yards in four tries in the first half, wound up with 67 in six attempts. Allen was Seacrest's leading rusher with fi.'l yards in 14 carries. Mix-on was a standout at linebacker for the Indians. The game was hard fought but cleanly played.

He likes the forward pass. Trouble is Humphrey doesn't have a quarterback who can pass and this has frustrated his Lake Worth Trojans most of this football season. Friday night at Runs Bullard Field the Trojans threw only two passes while Leonard's Lancers tossed 28. But one of Lake Worth's passes an eight-yarder from halfback Jack LaBay to end Howard DuIanyH was good for a first period toucHdown. And that was really all the Trojans needed to make their homecoming game a success. football game.

Miami Military 0 Special to The Post Times MIAMI A bid to a bowl game could easily as not go to the winner of the University of Miami-University of Alabama football game tonight in I hi-Orange Bowl. Both teams are still in the running for the eight established bowls. When the kickoff comes Saturday at 8:.'il) p.m., there will be bowl scouts in the Orange Bowl press box. Miami and Alabama will be meeting for the eighth time. The series between the schools opened in IA41, and since that inauguration of relations, the Crimson Tide has emerged victorious five out of seven meetings. Miami's two wins came in 19.11 and 1935, when the Hurricanes won 23 7 and 34 12. Bear Bryant's 'Bama clubs of I9ti and 1963 won over Miami 36 3 and 17 12. The teams have not met since Charlie Tate took over as head coach of the Hurric anes in 19M. UM will go into Saturday's Homecoming tussle in somewhat of a crippled condition. Tony (Tine, defensive end, suffered an injury against Penn State last week and may have to sit out the game. Others banged up were defensive bach Tony Sta warz, defensive tackle Robert Trocolor, and center Allan Folkins. It's expected that the latter quartet will be able to play. Two other injuries in practice this week robbed the Hurricanes of alternate offensive tack le Robert Carlin, and reserve fullback Dennis Hacked. Miami scouts who have been following the Alabama team this year call the Tide quick and fast. "When they bear down, there're awfully tough," said scout Roy Bickford. "Alabama's passing game is comparable to the best passing teams Miami has faced, and they hurt you with the air game at the critical time," he said. "Their execution and quickness is what gets them yards." Miami's starting offensive lineup against the Tide will he almost the same one that opened against Penn State last week. The only exception may be at center where first stringer Don Brandy is expected to return to action. Allan Folkins, alternate center who started at the post against the Nittany Lioas, suffered a leg injury in that contest and Ls not expected to he in top form. Other starters will be David Olivo at quarterback, Vincent Opalsky at running back. John Acuff at full. Ray Bellamy at flanker, David Kalina and Ray Heinly at ends, James Schneider and (ieorge Hopgood at tackles, and Chuck Full-erton and James Chaltas at guards. The Miami defense as usual will be led by the fabulous two-time All-American Ted Hendricks, who appears a cinch to become a three-time All-American at the end of the 1H season. While many teams avoid sending a greater part of their plays toward Hendricks, many times he catches players going away from him. Ted goes into the Alabama game with a career total of 328 tackles. Cleary scored twice for the Crusaders, one on a 47-yard run.
