A deflected pass from Idaho Falls quarterback Richard uroth landed m the hands of Rolan Cannon in the end zone ,. with just five seconds left in the game as the nevcr-say-dle .ligers won a stirring 22-20 comeback victory over Pocatello High School here in the Idaho State College Spud Bowl Friday. i v The Idaho Falls team fought back brilliantly to erase a 20-6 Pocatello lead at the sta -------of the fourth quarter. And they di it despite the odds in size and ex peiience against them to the wil · exuberation of several bus lose of rooters. The Southern Idaho Conferenc contest rang down a thrilling cur tain on the I960 gridiron season for both schools and a crowd o 800-900 fans, most from Idaho Falls · braved the cold and rain through out the afternoon. Biggest turning point in the gam came when Pocatello quarlebrac Doug Green attempted to pass a his own three-yard line and guar : Duane Forman of Idaho Fall snatched it out of the air and fel into the end zone. This touchdown came with 6:15 left in the game and halfback Gary Orchard then kicked the extra point (o narrow Pocatello's leaf to 20-15. What followed next were two short periods of offensive frustra tion for the Indians in their own territory, Ihen the chance tha Idaho Falls needed when it took "over on downs deep at the 21. "! With 2:00 left on the clock the Tigers started their game-winnim; thrust. Two rushing tries galnec '; only a yard and ate up almost one minute, of time before Groth com;, pleted'a pass to Orchard at the 10 ". for a first and goal situation. After a penalty for backfield in . motion and two more ground gains the Tigers were still only one down (o the nine and that is.when Cannon got into the picture at the right .- moment to grab the pass which first bounced off Karl Fillmore. Tha Tigers didn't need it, but ..Carlson kicked the conversion anyway as Idaho Falls boosters ·curried to the sidelines to celebrate. And to cap the final 12 minutes of frustration for the Indians, Carl- · »6n intercepted Green's pass at the : game-ending blast of the gun, · .marking the second straight year 3 that Pocalello had gone down to · defeat before Idaho Falls in Southern Idaho Conference play. ·''·'The fourth quarter Idaho Falls ""rally indicated that it just was not "in the cards" for Pocatello to · emerge victorious, as up to that point the Indians had supplied all the excitement on the break-away runs by speedster Guy Gertsch. Gertsch put Pocatello into the 1 lead mid-way through the opening period when he took an Idaho Falls Coach Praises Pocatello High Last-Game Try Coach Wally Kelly of Pocatello High School Saturday was wonder- Ing just what it takes to win a football game after his Indians closed [he season here Friday by bowling a 14-point lead and losing to Idaho Falls 22-20. "I still feel we won the game, even though the final score did say differently," Kelly said, "and I told the players that too, after the game." In absorbing the loss Pocatello ended the season with a G-3-1 record, its worst since 1955, and lied vith Idaho Falls for fourth place n the Southern Idaho Conference. "Even though we lost, I would rate this year's team nearly on a part with our 1959 club which posted a 7-3 record," Kelly added. He said Friday's lilt was the best he team had looked all season but minted out that Idaho Falls took idvantage of four big mistakes on he Indians' part In the last quarter of play. The winners' opportunities prov- d to be a fumbled punt by Poca- ello which resulted in a two-point afety; a pass interception near he Pocatello goal line; a gamble n fourth down at the 21-yard line vKich didn't succeed and a deeded pass which was caughl for le winning touchdown with five econds to play. Kelly said losing such top play- rs as fullback Mike Cawley, half- ack Guy Gerisch and linemen ob Hawkins, Steve Martin and -oy Hall will hurt next season.

Harry F. Guggenheim's 5-year- old thus became the first two- time winner of the International and fourth to do it in American racing colors. The victory also supported his bid in the voting for best horse of the year in this country. But Bald Eagle's supremacy was challenged by the trainer fo Harmonizing, E. W. King. Th Russians in turn tried to yell fou against Harmonizing. On top of that, the favorite French starter Puissant Che dumped his rider at the 'start to keep boiling the aftermath talk of the International. While Harmonizing came on to finish second to Bald Eagle, King wasn't satisfied for the horse he claimed for 56,500 in July. Harmonizing was left practical Iy standing al the start of the field of 11 horses from six nations He was still eighth at the end of a mile.
