NOW IT CAN BE TOLD. Seacrest High Coach Randy Cooper didn't expect his football squad to beat Vero Beach Friday night. "I honestly didn't think we could do it," admitted Cooper as he CAMBRIDGE, Mass (AP) Undefeated Harvard broke through stubborn Brown on John Emery's 54-yard scoring Jaunt with an intercepted pass late in the first period and rolled to a 31-7 victory Saturday in a tune-up for an Ivy League football showdown with Yale. The surprising Crimson, who started the campaign with only 11 lettermen, fashioned their first 8-0-0 record since 1913 In providing coach John Yovicsln the 100th victory of his career. Brown, which has won only iwo of eight outings, threw up t rugged dtiense in battling Har vard to a standoff in the earlj stages. leaned against a car In the Vero Beach parking lot outside the Seahawk dressing room.

Bill boys going both says. It's now a matter of record that the Seahawks did win, despite Vero's edge in size and depth. If you don't believe It, you should have been there to see Cooper get carried off the field on the shoulders of his players. That doesn't happen to a losing coach. Cooper's pleasant, boyish face was flushed with excitement. Small wonder. You can get pretty excited when a gall games, goes down to the flal minute and a half before your club scores the winning touchdown. "Either team could have won," said Cooper, whose Seahawks now have gone through 21 straight regular season games without a defeat. "I can't see much difference between the two teams." Inside the Vero Beach gym, a rock'n roll band provided sounds for the Inevitable sock hop after the game. But the dance didn't last long. It's not easy to dance and hve a good time when your football team has lost a home game for the first time since early in the 1967 season. Outside the gym, Cooper accepted congratulations, talked to college scouts about some of his players and relived the high points of the game. He gave much of the crcH' for the Seahawks' 20-13 victory to quarterback Steve Hardin, who holds virtually all the Seacrest passing records, hardin 218 "The fact that Hardin had a real good game probably made the difference," said Cooper. "He was great as far as I'm concerned. He made the big plays in the clutch." You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who would disagree. Hardin was as cool as a skin diver in Alaska as he led the Hawks to victory, passing to Ernest Williams for two of the three touchdowns and scoring the other himself on a quarterback sneak. Brow Han a run (MCManon kick) A 16.000. The game the first of the International variety played in the United States was marred with numerous penalties and fumbles with Palm Beach taking advantage of most of their breaks for touchdowns. But for awhile it looked like Palm Beach was In for another frustrating game. It lost 56-0 to Freeport High last Sunday In their first ever contest. Paul Bridgett took the opening klckoff for the Cadets and dashed 81 yards for a touchdown but a clipping penalty brought the ball back to the Freeport 25. Then on the first play from scrimmage, a 25-yard scoring pass was nullified by an Illegal procedure penalty. Palm Beach failed to score on this drive but Rafael Sosa finally ?ave the Cadets their first six-pointer with a four-yard dash nto the end zone standing up with 52 seconds left in the first period. Nineteen second quarter joints gave Palm Beach a comfortable 25-0 bulge and that was ;he game for all practical purposes.

(AP) Hard running Perry Williams, alternating with Leroy Keyes most of the day, smashed over for a five-yard toughdown In the third period as Purdue blanked slippery fingered Michigan State 9-0 Saturday in a BigTen clash.

Alert Randy Cooper, big man for the Bollermarkers' defense all day, set up the lone touchdown of the raln-plagued afternoon as he pounced on a fumble by Tommy Love of Michigan State on the MSU 22 early In the third period. With Keyes carrying on four of the six plays it took to cover the distance, Purdue stuck to the ground as it went for the touchdown. It was the third straight loss for Michigan State, an also ran in the Big Ten race this year. Purdue now 7-2 over-all is 4-2 In conference play. Keyes, plagued with a leg injury In his last couple of starts, found the soggy going of Spartan Stadium to his liking as he banged away for consistent, if not long yardage, to help blank Michigan State for the first time this season.

Moore, one of a quartet of workhorse running backs, scored from the 25 In the closing minutes.

All told, "Super Steve" completed seven of 13 attempts for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Several others were dropped and one completion was nullified by a penalty. The winning touchdown came with 1:29 left in the game. Seacrest had the ball, fourth and 19 at the Vero Beach 30. Williams, who now holds the school records forTD passes caught in a season (seven) and in a career (nine), ran an in-and-out pattern and was wide open near the left sideline when Hardin drilled the ball home. "We called it on the sidelines," revealed Cooper. "We telt it was something we could win on." Cooper gave Hardin credit for making the play work. "I thought Steve did It," he remarked, "the way he looked the other way and gave him time to get open. We couldn't have won without his passing." McDowell's Son Vero Star Among those coming up to congratulate Cooper was Vero Beach Athletic Director Jim McDowell. A year ago McDowell, winding up a 10-year career as head football coach at Vero, watched his Indians drop a 35-0 decision to the Seahawks at Delray Beach. "That's a fine football team you have up here," Cooper told McDowell. "You've got a pretty good one yourself," said the balding cigar-chomping McDowell. Among the many Vero Beach standouts was McDowell's son, Jim, the Indians' offensive left guard. "Your boy played a great game," said Cooper. "He's a tough guard." Young McDowell also saw duty on defense, helping to fill the gap left at defensive guard when 212-pound Tom McCall suffered a broken leg last week. Vero Beach played well enough to win against almost any other team in the state. The Indians, who were ranked No. 6 among Florida's high school football teams prior to the game, picked up 1()2 yards on the ground against the eighth-ranked Seahawks, who had yielded an average of a little more than 30 yards rushing per game In their first elght.starts. "They ran inside a little more than I thought they would," said Cooper. "They were hurting us inside: I guess that's the reason. That big fullback of theirs (Charlie Russ) Is a real horse, isn't he?" Tried To Console Indians Mark Baker, Vero's starting quarterback last season, tried to console some of his ex-teammates as they left the Citrus Bowl gridiron. "Just keep your heads up," he told them. "You guys are great don't forget that." Inside the Seacrest dressing room, tackle Gordon Ready peeled a sweat-soaked uniform from his 220-pound body. Ready, who went all the way both offensively and defensively for the Hawks, agreed with Baker that Vero Beach was great. "They were really tough," said Ready, a Post-Times All-Area selection as a Junior last fall. "They hit with us. I figured we'd go outside more, but they stopped us completely outside."

To say that Ready was a happy young man is like saying Rocky Mareiano had a pretty good record as a professional fighter. "That was the happiest moment of my life when we got that last touchdown," he said. The battle is not yet over for the Seahawks. They must whip arch-rival Lake Worth on Thanksgiving Eve to win a berth in the slate playoffs. Vero Beach, their NO. 1 rival for District 4-AA honors, is practically a sure thing against Dan McCarty in its finale. If the Indians beat McCarty, they will wind up the season with 70 playoff points. If Seacrest beats Lake Worth, the Seahawks will finish with 74 points. If the Hawks lose, they will have only 64 points; even if they should tie the Trojans, they will finish with only 69 points. This Is due to the fact that Vero Beach plays nine Class AA foes and only one Class A, while Seacrest plays seven Class AA, two Class A and one Class B. Eight games (including all losses and ties) count toward playoff points. The Seahawks, who won 10 straight games In 1967 but finished with only 68 playoff points to 70 for once-beaten Satellite, have traveled a long road toward that district championship. Whether their Journey will have a pleasant ending will be decided Thanksgiving Eve at Russ Bullard Field In Lake Worth. 18 MONTH GUARANTEE - JK'-k ", JUST CHARGE IT! NO MONEY DOWN!
