I aban's Tackle Kent Game Saver B 1U AMOn beacon Journal Sunday, October 15, 1972 By RICH ZITR . Bco Jeurnel Staff Writer BOWLING GREEN - Nick "aban didn't make the most . glamorous play 'of the day, but it was probably the most important. Kent State was leading Bowling Green 14-10 here Saturday afternoon in a game Kent eventually won by that score. Wingback Bill Pittman, a man of many moves, appeared headed for the end zone with 9:32 left in the game. Saban was the last In Flashes Trip BG, Top MAC Race Continued From Page B-l . .should have scored on one or ;two others." S GABY PCVKEL, Junior fright end from Kenmore, was another hero, giving Kent its pother score in the second period on a 37-yard play. Kent was trailing 3-0 when lvJ u n i o r quarterback Daryl .H all, starring for injured .Greg Kokal, hit a look-in pass !.jtd Pinkel, a play Kent has ?used time and again this sea-:. on. Pinkel broke a number of tackles and scored 11:35 :-tefor the end of the first "half. Kevin Flaherty made both conversion kicks and also kicked off in the second - half. Tommie Poole, the regu-, lar kickoff man, bruised a - knee in the first half. "The play on which Pinkel scored worried Nehlen before Jhe game. In his Thursday 'press conference, Nehlen sjaid, "The quick pass to their "fight, end worries me the .host. They run it better than ' "tny team I've ever seen." 42 -James also had words for jhe play. "We scored that touchdown by making their defense concentrate on Tinker ZaUxA (Eddie) Woodard. They Jet Pinkel wide open. .PINKEL gave the credit to -Hall. "Daryl put the ball ...fight in there," Pinkel said. That's the same play I .. r o p p e d two passes on .gainst Ohio University. J,"But that punt return by4 ; linker I was in awe patching him. r just stood " .there for a second. I couldn't 3plieve it. It was amazing." . If anything was being -called amazing, though, it "as Kent's defense. "Our de- fense is so great it's unbeliev-, 'TtAle," Pinkel said. "They , came up with the big plays. ' Now we have five games left, ' and we'll take them all." r : The Falcons got as far as Kent's 15 the first time they ;had the ball, but Jim Mac-)jUlister recovered tailback ;Paul Miles' fumble on the 14. rOn the next series, BG fresh-inan Don Taylor of . Canton Oakwood missed a 42-yard field goal. But two minutes into the second period Taylor made up for it. He kicked a 26-yard field goal after MacAllister saved a touchdown by breaking up a pass. Kent took the kickoff on its 26 and the sun came out Kent came out on the series half s first play from scrimmage. Quarterback Joe Babies of Canton McKinley, replacing starter Reid Lamport, handed off to fullback Phil Polak, who went 74 yards for the touchdown. The extra point by Taylor made it 10-7-Bowling Green 15 seconds into the third period. Then, with 2:25 left in the with a trick play called the , third period, Tinker made his "lonesome polecat," among big play, giving Kent a 14-10 other things.

Bowling Green scored its touchdown on the second win. BUT it was far from over. The game's top defensive play came with 9:32 left. Bowling Green wingback Bill Pittman, running from the Kent 48, appeared to be headed for a touchdown. Kent safety Nick Saban was the last man between Pittman and the end zone. He hit Pittman, the ball came loose and Saban recovered on the Kent 30. Another big play came with 5:19 left when Larry Poole was punting from his 41. He was roughed, giving Kent a first down on the Bowling Green 46. Renard Harmon got Kent a first down at the 37 6n a fourth and one and the Flashes didn't give up the ball until about two minutes' remained and a fourth down pass from the Bowling Green 28 was caught out of the end zone by Pinkel. . Lamport came back for BG with 2:26 to play, but pn the first play he overthrew Roger Wallace and Kent's Alonzo Curry intercepted, returning the ball 17 yards to the Bowling Green 29. , The Falcons later got the ball back, but freshman defensive end Larry . Faulk tipped a pass and Rector intercepted with 1:01 left, taking the ball 16 yards to the Kent 29. Kent, which plays its homecoming game against Xavier Saturday, is 2-3-1 overall while Bowling Green is 3-1-1.

He not only stopped Pittman, but caused a fumble and recovered it on the Kent 30-yard line. "HE WAS breaking out, somebody hit him and. he was bobbling the ball," said Saban from Worthington, W. Va. "I hit him and he dropped the ball. "This was just a great team effort. Everybody's together. We have some great athletes and great guys who work day in and day out to improve. Most teams would have given up after last week (a 13-12 loss to Western Michigan). But we got mad and came back to win. Last week was one of my lower spots, today was one of my brighter ones." ; . That's exactly how Daryl Hall felt. The junior quarterback from R i 1 1 m a n, who started in place of injured freshman Greg Kokal was beside himself. "It's unbelieva ble," he said. "It's just great. Our defense did it. "Was I nervous? Not as much as in the Akron game." That's when Hall replaced Larry Hayes, who broke his arm early in the 13-13 tie Sept. 9 at the Rubber Bowl. KOKAL, who has badly bruised legs, didn't make the trip. "He started responding to treatment Thursday and Friday," Don James said. "We're hopeful he'll be ready next week." James was understandably quite elated after the game, which he termed a bigger thrill than beating Ohio University 37-14 Sept. 23. "Our guys gave just a super effort" he said. '-'There are always players who can't wait until the season is over, but we think our guys are committed to playing football. This shows what not giving up does. Now we have a shot in-the Mid-American Conference race." Losing coach Don Nehlen, whose team was at home for the first time this season, was not smiling. "I wish they would have beaten us instead of us beating ourselves," he said. "I'd feel a lot better. We had four fumbles and lost all four. You can't win in the Mid American Conference as balanced as it is right now if you're going to lose fumbles." KENT'S fumble recoveries were m.ade by .Jim MacAllister, Dan Rector, Bernard Harmon and the most crucial one by Saban. "We tried to win and the kids played hard," Nehlen said. "I thought our defense was exceptional. We just made a lot of mistakes, both mentally and physically." As usual, middle linebacker Jack Lambert led Kent with 15 tackles. Saban had 12, while defensive back Mike Perlin, defensive end Larry Faulk and MacAllister each had eight.
