COURIER NEWS Papooses Rally To Down Luxora, 12 to 7 THURSDAY, NOVKMBUK 10, 1'Jll Score Twice In Fourth Quarter ; Greenwell Accounts "For Winning Points; .McFarland Also Stars The Blytlieville Junior High Papooses got up off (he floor lo stage a great fins; quarter rally and defeat 'a stubborn band of Luxora High school - Panthers, 12-7, here last night for (heir third win of tor ended. Ihe' season. For three full periods "Pop" Mosley's kids found themselves looking down a 7-0 score against Uicm. They fought des|>crately to overcome the deficit, even moving once to the oiie-\ard line only to lose the ball on downs. But the tenacious visitors held to their slim margin that grew bigger ns the game progressed. Finally, their stout hearted efforts to score paid off. They crashed over two touchdowns in rapid-fire succession during the fourth quarter and were well on Ihelr way to another when the concluding whistle stopped them just 10 yards away from pay" dlri in one of their most devastating assaults of the year. Papooses Show Superiority Sheer statistics reveal the wide superiority of the victorious Papooses They racked up H first downs to only six for the Pr<iUhcrs, ary one of the .visitors came on a penalty. Four Luxora first • downs came via passing, their only consistent offensive wen'pon,' Billy Wayne McFnrland, plunging fullback, was the biggest ground gainer for the Mosleymcn. He lugged the leather 18 times for n net 155;yards,' far more Own the entire Luxora backfield which showed only a net 42 oirthe ground. Dickie Greenneli scored both Blytlieville touchdowns and was 'riinnerup to his backfield mate In gaining with a net 88 jards. But his two biggest gains were the payoffs ns he actually fought his way 'over the goal line ' j • Ed Peimenter, Luxora speedster, was the biggest llireat by rushing. His_ chart showed 37 yards In four mes Alien had 28 In eight attempts Slanfleld rnii the ball eight times, was thrown" for 25 yards while gaining only seven, but his throwing ability offset his Inabll- get away. • Line is Slrong A lion's share of the glory belongs to the hard charging Papoose forwards They slopped the Lnxora backs and virtually thwarted every passing attempt in the second half as they SB armed all over the passer Luxora's first 1 down in the last two periods was on a roughing pe'j- alty. The two-ends, Don Htie.y and Harvey Eaton were especially nffec- tlve^ also Don Bcsharse and John Hoover, sterling tackles; Billy Bra- eey; B B Elliott, R. B. Hodge", J.

Permenter circled end for the extra point to give the Panthers a 7-0 lead, t Combining a running attack •with an aerial assault the Papooses roared back but the drive bogged down on the one-yard line. Papooses nig In They showed their fighting hearts a few minutes later when a long pass was batted into the arms of Bennett'who fell on the Blytlieville 1. Four plays later Ihey look over on the 'five-yard Hue. Successive Penalties put them back on the 14 yard line, but McFarland pulled (hem out of (lie hole with a spec- iacnlar 38-yard run. The Papooses threatened continually In the third quaiicr hut a 'pass interception by Permenter on the goal line slopped .them. Three Panther plays netted only seven yards and Stanfleld punted lo the Blylhevllle 39, as the third quar- Finiilly Generalc Drive Then the young tribe went to work In dead earnest. Greenwell and McFarland moved the ball to the Luxora 23 In four plays. Jack Elliott hurled beautifully to Traylor on the eight. J. Elliott sneaked for four and tried again but was ruled in motion, the Papooses being penalized back to She G. But Greenwell circled around right end on seme nifty blocking to score, running the count to 7-0. Mose Simon was rushed Into the game for the conversion but failed and Luxora maintained the one-point margin. Looking for a break and a cliance to score the Pajwoscs didn't have to'-wait long. McFiuland's kickoff hit a defending linesman and Traylor recovered for the Pnps on the Luxora 49. McFarlnnd and Greenwell negotiated n first down on ,the St. Jack Elliott overshot'Huey'on a long heave then hit Traylor with one down the middle to the 23. McF«rlaii ( | got three at right tackle, (hen picked up five nt (he other side. Greenwell ran Into a stone wall at a middle try, but dug and fought his way 17 yards over the goal line for the needed touchdown. Simon again misfired for the extra point after 1 J. Elliott fumbled handling the bull. But the Papooses didn't need It. Tlie lineups and summary: Humes Counts On Jerry Croo/c To Spark Scoring Here Friday Mason progresses, They are Just' about due for a powerful stand and may single out this one to begin 1 over again.

Plan County Airports BOSTON (UP) — When alrpor development now planned for Mass achusetts is completed, less than one per cent of the state's population will live more than 10 miles from an, airport. Each county will have an 'airport. Ihe series. Make First Start But It will be something of a novelty for Ihe Marooners tomorrow night when they take on Coach Jimmy PallcrsWs fast stepping Humes Tigers. The Bengals make fllieir '.first appearance on Haley, Field, certainly the Initial lime in modern history of the two rival teams. For a starter the Tigers appear Ip be loaded for Clilckasmv meal. ~ "" with a quartet of fine backs and a small but ugged, well , balanced line, Coach 'altcrson's fine outfit .should make he, hnploss Chicks step lively. If heir records of the current sca- oii Is any indication. The Tigers are resting comfortably ' n third place, right behind the Ycllawjackcts and Christian Bro- licrs College, In the fast Memphis 3lty League. They have racked up •Ix victories, all In a row, Snd dropped two verdicts, the last pair of starts, Offensively they rale the No. 4 ;pol, by virtue of their 102 points scored find 61 counted against them. The Jackets are out in front with 11B tallies. CBC had 130 and Cen- Irnl, which held the touted Little Rock Tigers lo n 7-0 score, trails in (him plncc with 122. ' ' Individual Duel Prospective The game ivjay develop into as offensive duel between Jerry Crook, Tiger tailback, and Ihe Chicks' owr Sinn Hood, one of the bright siwU of n disappointing campaign from n winning .standpoint. This bos Crook rates as one of the best in xninds, Just a few under his local rival. It was Hood who brought, ihc i'rentcii ray of hope (o local faith- fuls this season. Making lite first start at Ihe halfback slot, the former blocking back has done very well. Ho was particularly outstanding In (lie tivo tribal wins. He set the pace against big Batcsvillc to aid in the B-0 triumph, then a week later reached his peak with 177 yards and get the .spotlight In the 10-0 victory over Colllervllle, Tenn. Stan pulled a muscle during that great offensive demonstration and hasn't been at his best since. But Coach Arvil Green'reports he Is fit now and ready lo lead his mates against the invading Tigers. May Get Help Young -Hood should get. some valuable help from Prank Nicholson and Harvey (Cotton) Pogiie, who have shown occasional flashes of power. Esireclally Is that true or (lie 123-pound Nicholson. The fleet nimble legged sophomore appears just a step away from stardom and may choose this contest to close in Ihe gap and break out with n scoring rush which would Ihrlll the victory-hungry fnns no little. The Maroon front wall Is certain to be in for some lough competition, not to mention a definite weight superiority. Coach Patterson, former Fordycc ncgbug mentor, has built his front line defense around a pair of big 190-pound lackles, Billy D.ivl.s nnd Don Kauerz, 16-year old veterans, rind Red Williams, guard. Billy Oswald, 17-year o!<: star tackle, is the regular running male of Kaureic, who Is said to be headed for all-Memphis honors, btii is due to ride the bench with Injuries, Boast Great Guard The olhcr outstanding key in the Tiger defense, Louis Williams, 156- rjounclcr, was accorded all-city rat- Ing last year nnd .Is. even beltei (Ills season.
