Also coming By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer PAHOKEE - The Bill Young Trophy a handsome piece of sterling silver is awarded each year to the winner of the Belle Glade-Pahokee game. Friday night. Pahokee's Blue Devils made good use of its own Sterling a high stepping tailback by the name of Leopold Sterling to sweep past the rams, 28-7 and capture the Suncoast western division title and the coveted trophy. Sterling, a 180-pound junior, and the leading rusher in the Suncoast West, was held to only 25 yeards the first three quar ters as the Blue Devils maintain a surprising 14-7 bulge, as the audience of 4,000 looked on this briks evening. Then Sterling regained his normal running style for 132 yards in the fourth quarter, 72 yards coming on a dazzling touchdown jaunt which gave Coach Webb Pell's Devils a 28-7 margin. The Ace Pahokee running back, finished the night with 167 yards in 16 carries and scored three touchdowns. The game was of its tradition al nature, a hard-fought battle, even though Belle Glade was a decisive underdog coming into the affair with 3-5 mark. Pahokee finished the season with a 7-2-1 record and a spotless 5-0 slate in conference play. Belle Hade ends its schedule Wednesday night against Leonard. The first half was all Belle Glade, despite 7-7 intermission score. The Golden Rams had 11 first downs to Pahokee's four. And out rushed the Devils 145 -to 40 with fullback Eddie Mc Glam-ory gainingyardsof that total. But the last 30 minutes of the contest was an entire new game. Pahokee's defense held Coach Red Jenkin's club to only two second-half first downs and 39 yards total offense. Sterling and company meanwhile were quick to unleash their much-touted running game and came back for 161 yards rushing and 47 passing in route to 21 points and the game. Pell's answer to what type of adjustments the Devils made during halftime was a simple one. Boca Raton Leonard By ED PLAISTED Executive Sports Editor BOCA RATON Joe Pribil stood in his undershorts dripping wet after his happy Bora Raton him trom his othce to the shower. Ihe dressing room was a bedlam Friday alter the Bobcats closed their season with a 13-12 upset over Leonard's Lancers. "I just can't figure it out," said Pribil who learned his football in Johnson City, N.Y. "Their quarterback (Charles Close) is a fine passer and I can't figure out why he didn't pass more. We were prepared for their passing most of the evening except on "We knew they were going to run", he said. "We just buckled up and stopped them." Friday night's win gives Pahokee a 13-12 advantage in the ancient rivalry between the two Glades cities. Four games have ended in ties. After a scoreless first quarter. Pahokee took an early lead following John Osborne's interception of Belle Glades quarterback Williams' pass that gave the Devils the ball at the Rams' 15, on second play of the second period, four plays later Sterling bucked in for the TD from eight yards out to give Pahokee a 6-0 lead. Robert Mc Intosh then kicked the Devils into a 7-0 advantage with 9:04 left. The lead was shortlived, as Belle Glade came right back, following the ensuing kickoff and marched 72 yards in 13 plays with Ernie Sanchez going in for the six-pointer on a 12-yard scamp. Sonny Crawford's PAT made it 7-7 with 2:51 reaminaing in the first half. It was obvious Pahokee had realigned its defenses during hall'time ceremonies, as it held Belle Glade without a first down following the second-half kick-off. Following Gary Resmondo's punt to the Ram 41, the Devils moved to the go-ahead touch-odwn in three plays with a Jim Hickman-to-WalterOs born pass netting the final 31 yards. Mcintosh then kicked his second of four perfect placements and gave Pahokee a 14-7 advantage. Sterling then did the rest.

"I though our defense turned in a magnificent job especially on the pass rash. I wasn't con cerned so much about Close as a runner. It was his passing that worried me. And the longer he did not go to the air the more we worried." It was a rather unusual football game on this cool, crisp autumn evening and for a while many in the crowd of 2,500 thought Boca Raton might never score after three failures on three separate occasions from inside the Leonard 15. A fumble recovery by the Lancers set ijp the first score of the evening. John Messer grabbed a fumble in the air on the Boca 38 and returned it the 15. Six plays later Close crashed over for the touchdown at 6:49. Tom Bonner's placekick was short. Twice in the second period Boca had drives run out of gas within the shadow of the Lancers goal post. Early in the pe nod the Bobcats were stopped on the one and near the end ot the quarter at the 11. Midway in the third period the Bobcats drove to a first down on the Lancer 4. On a third down plav quarterback George Sparling hit end Mike Gross with a soil pass in the end zone. Gross, all alone, dropped the ball. Boca tied the game with sud denness. Catching Leonard in a seven-man line, haliback Willie Morris scampered 38 yards around the end for a TD with 2:43 left. Chuck MacWilliams-placekick was wide. After the following kickoff, Close tried to go to the air something he didn't do once in the first half. But he was smeared three straight times by the hard-charging Bobcat line. His punt from the end zone was nearly blocked and traveled 0 yards. Boca took over on the Leonard 8 and three plays later Tony Orpesa ran it over for the TD. MacWilliams kick was good for a 13-6 lead. A fumble of a punt by Sparling set the stage for Leonard's second TD. The Lancers drove 55 yards in seven plays to score on Closes pass Ricky Dunn with 6:32 left. Close tried to run over the extra point but he was stopped inches short of the goal ine. Boca use a ground attack to run the clock out and gain its fifth win in 10 games this au tumn. Leonard is now 3-6 with only Belle Glade left on Thanksgiving Eve. Pribil praised the defensive work of ends Terry Albury and Don Caylor and linebackers Tony Orpesa, Steve Alger.

Earl Findley led the Pacers with 14 points and no other Palm Beach player hit in double figures NEW YORK (API - It was at this time last year that the San Diego Chargers started charging to the rear. All the ingredients are present for the same thing to happen this time. The Chargers were 8-1-1 through their first 10 games last season and were battling Oakland for the Western Division title in the American Football League. Then they lost their last four games. This year they're 8-2 and only a half game behind first-place Kansas City. But in their last four contests, they must play New York. Denver. Kansas City and Oakland. That's enough to send anyone into retreat. A retreat certainly isn't in order for the pro prognosticator although chances are it'll come at any moment. - Last week's record was 10-2, giving the prognosticator a three-week mark of 32-5 and a season record of 91-34 for a .728 percentage. That total is made up of 36-12 in the AFL and 55-22 in the National Football League. Here are Sunday's guesses. AFL San Diego 21. New York 20 -Jets' secondary fell down just enough against Oakland last week, and that's all John Hadl and Lance Alworth would need.
