While Ohio State's offense has opened up some this season, the wide and that gave Simpson more opportunity to run inside but it was not strategy that won the game. It was won bv preparing the Trojans to meet out most of the time," McKay said. "We played them wide ourselves." Enyart is second only to Simpson as a running back in the West and he had averaged 144 yards a game from his fullback position prior to Saturday. "I decided our best chance ot stopping Enyart was to use our biggest linebackers, Jim Snow and Bob Jensen, with the hope they could contain him." McKay continued. "They did the job by holding Enyart to 68 yards. And it was a fine job. I hold Enyart in the highest respect as a back." McKay's team, however, ran into troubles in the first half when penalties, quick Beaver moves and a few Trojan miscues kept USC from getting an offensive thrust started. "You've got to give the credit to our defensive platoon for stopping Oregon State in the first half when it had field position," McKay said. "Actually, the defense won the game, as it turned out, by keeping Oregon State from scoring in the first half." At half time McKay made a few adjustments in his offense the way our kids played."

Elliot continued. " Right now. I can't feel what kind of game it will be. The team that makes fewer mistakes will be ir. a great position to get something going.

Others looked lor a hard-hitting defensive scrap. Each school of thought was partially correct. Kennedy's Vikings displayed plenty of offensive fireworks, racking up two touchdowns and a field goal for 17 points. But the key to Kennedy's victory was the outstanding effort turned in by its defensive unit. Except for a touchdown drive engineered by Carver's Anthony Penn in the fading seconds of the first half, the Vikings stopped the Eagles cold. The final score was 17-6. Spearheading the Kennedy defense, as he has in practically every game this season, was middle linebacker Everett Mitchell. "He made 10 tackles and had two assists." said Coach Ben McCoy. "And lie Knocked down two passes and intercepted one.'' Mitchell, who earned Post-Times Defensive Player of the Week honors for his exploits, returned the interception 12 yards to halt a Carver drive. "lie s done the job lor us all season." said McCoy, "lie s quick and he's aggressive." Lake Worth High Coach Bill Humphrey was proud of the defensive etlort turned in by his linebacker-deiensive halfback combination ol David Hildebrunt and Butch Hall against Leonard. "HiUlehrant put a lot ol pressure on the passer," pointed out Humphrey . "and Hall did a good job covering the receivers. They held i Leonaru quarterback Charles i Close down pretty good."
