4-C Saturday, Oct. 5, 1974 Philadelphia Inquirer T 17V J iPo- UTr Tin hit T .innrhln Utrmrn A rtninr ff III A UOl V V KJli JLPLVU1J JLJlil;JVil XJ?JVJriils LJlVMVm Lincoln was a new high school in 1958, a product of both the post-war baby boom and the SO's Northeast building boom. The Railsplitters arrived with a hurry that year, winning the Public League football title and rolling to a City championship. There is a vocal segment of local opinion that holds Lin-m coin capable of matching at least the Public League title this year, a feat the Railsplitters have not accomplished since their infancy. "I think that's more of a compliment to Tim Murphy," aid coach Lou Grandizio, prior to today's game with University City. "People figure that if you have a quarterback returning, that's 90 percent of the team, but you need three other kids who can do something, too. You can't put all your eggs in one basket." Murphy has led the Railsplitters to successive, 5-3, 7-3 seasons and is the main force behind Lincoln's hopes of edging past Frankford in tough Division One. "Tim's outstanding asset is his quickness," Grandizio said. "He's an excellent ball handler and he can run that football. Ke runs to daylight well. He's been doing it for three years and now he's learned to pick defenses apart." Even with the quarterback considered the best college prospect in the Public League, time is running against the Railsplitters. At least, right now. "Our kids haven't progressed as fast as we had hoped," Grandizio admitted. "We have to give them time to adjust to a new situation. Almost none of our backs are tested." Lincoln starts Nate Montgomery at tailback, Ron Haas (a cornerback last year) at halfback, and Joe Bruno at fullback. Two of the players they replaced, Bob Weisner and John Whitely, are in major college programs, Navy and Temple, respectively. "The backs have to learn to read holes better," Grandi- 6 Phila. Colleges Lay Logs on Line DON McKEE High Schools zio explained. "They need to hit the holes better. Whitely and (graduated) Dave Kovacs knew the system. We're trying to get the new kids to just do things instinctively. "They say it a lot, but there's really no school like the school of experience." Murphy is throwing to the backs well and has an outstanding wide receiver in junior Joe Belger. "He started all year last year," Grandizio said. "He's gonna be an excellent football player." All the Railsplitters need is a little more time. Darrell Payton, the Central quarterback who was the Inquirer's Public League player of the week, started in Friday's 28-8 win over Bartram, but things were touch and go for awhile. "I had a scare Monday morning," said coach Bob Cullman. "Darrell came to school with his left wrist in a cast His doctor thought he had broken it in an accident." Cullman hustled his star senior to the office of Dr. Joseph Torg, the famed specialist in athletic injuries. "Torg said he didn't think it was broken," Cullman said. "We had him checked again Wednesday and he got the okay to play with it wrapped." Willie Taylor caught five passes in Franklin's 12-8 win over Olney Thursday, but may find himself in deep water in the future. He's attracting a lot of attention. "We have other ends," said Franklin coach Vince Trom-betta, "but Willie's just a bit better, so we've been going to him. We're gonna have to go to our other people now, though, because they're starting to double and triple team Willie." Quarterback Kerry Smith also works under something of a handicap, since opponents know Franklin is pretty much of a passing offense. "We're just not big enough to take the ball and go right down the field with it," Trombetta said. "When it gets to third and three we have to throw because we .can't run right at anybody. We have to trap or something like that." Mastbaum quarterback Wayne Wilson was almost apologetic after passing the Panthers to a comeback, 22-20, win over Washington yesterday. "I really hadn't done anything in the first two games," said the senior, after hitting 18 of 32 passes, "this was my first good game." Wilson, who passed for 204 yards, said he feels a lot stronger than he did a year ago, when Mastbaum finished 8-2 and barely missed the Public League playoffs. "He spends at least IS minutes a day doing nothing but throwing exercises," said coach Ralph Ricapito. We have all our quarterbacks throw flat-footed, sitting and kneeling, to build up their arms." Wilson connected 11 times with Jaime Rivera, including the winning TD with 25 seconds left. Mastbaum's collection of ace receivers includes Rivera, Milton Mangual and Michael Malave, a group Ricapito lovingly calls "the Spanish contingent." COLLEGES, From 1-C peak, and then get that lull after the storm," said Hardin. "On the other hand, I think our kids are mature enough to handle it." As far as Marshall Is concerned, Hardin says the West Virginians pose a problem because "they do so many different things on offense and defense." Hardin agrees that the same kind of hard blocking, tackling and running the Owls showed against BC can solve those problems, and Temple has an outstanding defense and a balanced offense that features the running of Henry Hynoski and Bob Harris, and the passing of Steve Joachim, the nation's total offense leader. Penn coach Harry Gamble calls the meeting with Brown "a real big game because it's important to get off to a good start in the league. Brown has a real good team with good size in the right places and will be all fired up. They figure they're on the way back." The Quakers will have to outscore the Bruins with the running of Adolph Bellizeare, Penn's all-rime ground-gaining leader, the passing of Marty Vaughn and the receiving of Bucky Bucola. Brown features two quarterbacks Pete Beatrice, a dangerous passer, and Dennis Coleman, an outstanding runner from Darby-Colwyn High School. Delaware figures to get its stiffest test. Coach Tubby Raymond said, "McNeese has to be an outstanding football team ... I think McNeese is comparable to Temple, which is enough to get anyone ready to play football." McNeese, which beat Southwestern Louisiana, 38-0, a team Tulane edged, 17-16, is paced by quarterback Johnnie Hhibodeaux and 5-9, 183-pound halfback Marshall Higginbotham. As usual, Delaware will depend on quarterback, Bill Zwaan and a host of f 'wswurfc tp orgs I mt I i v iinrrni-r 'mittesit 1 1 J MastbaumNips Washington With 4th-Quarter Aerials ADOLPH BELLIZEARE . . . Penn's big threat hard runners, led by Nate Beasley and Vern Roberts. Widener coach Bill Man-love says of Western Maryland, "Year in and year out, they give us all we can handle. Surprisingly, this year they're not very big. We're very happy to be 2 and 0 right now." Cheyney coach Billy Joe isn't "sure how strong we are. Our game with Mansfield will be our toughest so far. They're bigger than we are, and we're big. This is our first conference game and we want this one." Delaware Valley's Tom Shriner says his team is better than it has played so far; but it faces a rough assignment today. "Albright has yet to be scored on," he said. . Auburn Defeats Miami, 3-0 From Inquirer Wire Service MIAMI - Gregg Gillis kicked a 24-yard field goal in the third quarter and 11th-ranked Auburn's defense, most successful in the nation, made it. stand up for a 3-0 Friday night football victory over the University of Miami. Gillis' kick, one of three Auburn field-goal attempts, followed a fumble by Miami's Temple Subs Lose First Game Ever Pat Kenny caught two fourth-quarter touchdown to give Army a 26-23 win over Temple's sub-varsity Friday afternoon at Temple Stadium.

Miami's last offensive threat was dosed when Tiger linebacker Johnny Sumner intercepted a pass by Miami Kary Baker with 52 seconds remaining, The Hurricanes had moved from their own 23 to Auburn's 36 before Sumner's steal. Gillis provided his game-winning boot after 11 rushing plays took Auburn to Miami's seven, where the Tigers faced a fourth down and needed three yards for a first. Miami, held to five first downs in the first two quarters, could not penetrate the Tigers' 20-yard line before intermission.

Mastbaum High, trailing 20-7 in the fourth quarter, uncorked a swift passing game to pin a 22-20 defeat on guest Washington in a Public League Friday afternoon clash. After Steve Wattenmaker scooted 45 yards for his second score and a 13-point Eagle lead, Wayne Wilson flipped one yard to Mike Malave. and followed with a PAT aerial to Jamie Rivers. The decisive touchdown was notched when Wilson and Rivera teamed up for a one-yard toss on fourth-and-goal with 21 seconds left.

Germantown registered its third straight shutout by nailing Bok, 25-0. Gibson Price hurled a pair of TD strikes 19 yards to Chris Barnett and 21 to Walter Price. Overbrook also stayed unbeaten (2-0) as QB William Clifton threw a tallying pass of 18 yards to Tony Watson and ran for two points during Gratz' 14-6 setback. George Coleman, playing his first varsity game at quarterback, guided West Philadelphia (2-1; 1-1) to a 20-6 trimming of guest Rox-borough. In the Penn-Jersey Conference Spencer Prescott raced for 194 yards on 28 tries, sparking host Mitchell School's 23-14 conquest of Academy of the New Church. Jay Lindquist scored twice for Friends Central and teammate Kevin Fields gained 104 yards on seven attempts as Perkiomen School bowed, 16-0. John Powell of George School, whose TD run combined with an Ed Gibbs pass for two points to knot the count in the last quarter, had a successful 42-yard field goal nullified with two minutes left in the game due to a penalty, and host German-town Friends held on to get an 8-8 tie. Phil Brown, a 5-9, 180-lb. senior fullback, carried 25 times for 141 yards and scored on runs of four, eight and two yards to power host Pottstown High (4-1 overall, 2-1 league) to a 26-0 Ches-Mont League blanking of previously unbeaten Phoenix-ville (4-1; 3-1). Powerful Central Bucks West High (4-0 overall; 2-0 league) scored in every period in a 42-12 Bux-Mont League thrashing of visiting Upper Perkiomen (2-2; 1-1). Lee Richardson, Bob Ven-tresca, Bill Walker, Gary Schillo and Steve Walker all ran for CBW six-pointers with Bill Borresen tossing a 16-yard pass to Mike Mill for the other Buck TD. Neshaminy High (2-2; 0-2) dropped a 13-7 Big Eight Conference decision to visiting William Allen High of Al-lentown as Allen's Pat Miller recovered a blocked punt in the end zone with 1:45 remaining in the game. In a Suburban One league contest, Art Root tallied on runs of two and 24 yards to lead visiting Springfield (Montco) High to a come-from-behind 21-13 win over Norristown. In non-league action, host Penn Charter School tallied the game's first five touchdowns enroute to a 42-31 triumph over Southern High.

It has been tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, November 30th. Lower Merion will host Bishop Egan High in a non-league game today at 1:30 P.M.

Nagging things like that, but they kept me out. That upset Joe, because he likes people to practice every day." But ironically, it is injuries to Petchel in practice, to starter Walt Addie in the Navy game that have uiuugui Buyie inio focus this year. They are the reason Rusty Boyle is expected to see extensive action today at 2 P.M. at Michie Stadium when the 28Vj-point favorite Nittany Lions visit Army. Last week, Boyle found out he would start for his first time ever against Iowa at breakfast the day of the game. Petchel's pulled hamstring and Addie's sprained knee had forced Pa-terno to go to his third-unit tailback. And Boyle responded with an eye-opening performance: 76 yards on 15 carries. He supplied half the yardage on the first touchdown drive that started ffie Lions on their way to a 27-0 win. Along with Dave Stmts, who had been completely off the depth chart disguised as a fourth-string right end, Boyle gave State some much-needed depth at tailback. Boyle feels the first scoring drive was the key to the Iowa wipeout. "Everyone felt we needed to score quick, like we did against Stanford," Boyle recalls. "That way, we could get some confidence in our offense and we wouldn't be afraid of losing the ball on fumbles when we were moving like against Navy." Navy is the stigma that will dog this Penn State team, a nightmare of rain and fumbles, of the football hissing and writhing from their grasp like an angry snake. But Boyle feels the 7-6 loss then merely stirred tip the Lions for the rest of the season. "I felt were going to just go out and dominate Iowa," he saj's. "Everyone had really worked the week before the game. That was the only way to make up for Navy. The only way to take care of it. I know it's one of the few times this year the captains have gotten up and given a pep talk. "I wasn't that shaken by starting because running back was one of the few positions where we had depth," he added. "We had three guys who'd gotten experience last year. We didn't have a superstar like Cappy, but we had everyone who could do the job." That, as much as anything, strilrpc tri i.roTkn7?.n1ikc chord for this State team. It is an unemotional team. Game days are another day at the office. It is partly a reflection of Paterno's personality. "I've heard the criticism that we were complacent or too unemotional," says Boyle. "But Joe's not an emotional type guy either. He feels that if you do the job for four quarters, you'll beat 'em. And we hadn't been doing that badly, really. We had moved the ball against Navy all day and kept fumbling. On defense, we'd only let 'em have the one drive when they scored. It's a matter of keeping it in perspective." And in the revised perspective on Penn State, Rusty Boyle may be a prominent part of the picture. PENNSYLVANIA PUBLIC LEAGUE University City vs. Lincoln at Rowland and Ryan aves., 10:30 A. M.
