The Eagles stayed mostly on the ground, with Rick Balluch handling the workhorse chores. Balluch amassed an incredible 239 yards on 31 carries and whipped Norton practically single-handedly. He also scored Trego County's second touchdown of the game, a blast from six yards out. Norton had ample opportunity, to put some points on the board, thanks to six Eagle fumbles. But the Bluejays were effectively stifled by the rugged Trego defense. Unable to move the ball on the ground, Norton took to the air. But the Eagles put the clamps on that approach by intercepting four aerials. The other Trego score came on a one-yard run by Greg Hamilton. Neither PAT was successful for the Eagles. * * Stubborn 'Cats Finally Fall To Oklahoma State WaKeeney Norton WaKeeney MANHATTAN, Kan.

In the first full series, in which the senior quarterback played, he threw two straight completions covering 47 yards, to set up Miller's first run and give Oklahoma State the lead it never relinquished. •Weatherbie, who came off the bench against Kansas State a year ago to turn a 3-0 deficit into a 56-3 victory, gave the Cowboys a 17-3 advantage at the half when he threw his touchdown pass to Bain, who had to fight off two defenders to make the reception in the end zone on the third down play.

But my guess is that Giles will end up playing basketball. "I was disappointed he wasn't first team all-league (meaning an end). Not taking anything away from the two that got it, but if there had been three, I know Bill would have got it," said Johnson. Other players coach Johnson mentioned he thought could play small college were Mike Bigge, Jeff Jarrett and Dennis Johnson.

Benedictine College, in only its fourth year of varsity football, will be meeting Washburn University, in the Seventh Annual Boot Hill Bowl at Dodge City, Nov. 20. The two teams are the only small college squads in the state which have not lost to a Kansas opponent. That is, if the Ravens got by Emporia State. After 18 calendar weeks, big Ray Jackson, a 6-11 junior center will be eligible to play with the Marymount Spartans, which means he will miss both games with the Fort Hays State Tigers. The two teams meet on Nov. 27, and Dec. 8. Although the Thomas More Prep Monarchs came through with a 7-2 mark, Lady Luck sure wasn't with them.

King carried 18 times tor 128 yards and Lott gained 126 yards on 24 rushes. Pisarkiewicz, the Tigers' No. 1 quarterback at the start of the season before being injured, came off the bench with less than one minute left in the third quarter and rallied Missouri from a 17-point deficit. After Gant's 33-yard touchdown reception on Pisar- kiewicz' first series, Missouri surged to the Oklahoma five but gained nothing in three downs and Gibbons kicked a 22-yard field goal to draw within seven points of the Sooners. * The Tigers threatened twice more late in the game.

All of the Notre Dame points came in the second period. Alabama scored once in the first half when quarterback jack O'Rear ran one yard for a touchdown, but the Crimson Tide couldn't score again until the third period when Bucky Berrey booted a 38-yard field goal. The game probably eliminated Alabama from any major bowl game consideration but Notre Dame could get an invitation if it can beat Miami (Fla.) next Saturday. The Irish also have Southern California on the schedule but may not have to beat the Trojans to land a bowl berth. It was third time in as many tries that Notre Dame has beaten Alabama. The Irish won a 24-23 victory in the Sugar Bowl in 1973 and also took a 13-11 victory in the Orange Bowl the following year.

The speedy split end caught the ball on the five- yard line, appeared trapped at the 30, then stumbled forward and broke into the open. Nebraska, however, rallied behind the passing of quarterback Vince Ferragamo, who passed 43 yards to Bobby Thomas for Nebraska's first touchdown, directed a 68-yard scoring drive culminated by Monte Anthony's 14-yard run, then hit Thomas again on a 30- yard scoring play with 14:35 left in the game. HHS Cross Country Teams Gratifying For Maska No quote from coach Tom Bowen about his Ellis Basketball team, but he did say with Osborrte, Smith Center and Norton joining the MCL this season, it should be a dandy race. No Sissy A few years ago, no self-respecting NHL player would have been caught dead with a mask. But Keith Magnuson can tell you it's a far sight better than a broken jaw. The Chicago Black Hawk defenseman returned to the ice sporting a mask for the first time since his jaw was shattered last month by Detroit's Brian Watson. (UPI Photo) BYJAYSCHLYER Sports Editor Coach Jim Maska feels desire, putting out a little extra, along with some running on their own during the summer, has been the big reason for the successful cross country program at Hays High.' When the Indians won the state Class 3A title two weeks ago, it was the fifth state championship for coach Maska's crews since he took over eight years ago. The three years the Indians failed to finish first, they still made a respectable showing of placing fourth two and third the other. In the eight years, coach Maska has had 11 all-staters- runners finishing among the top 10 in the state competition. Of the 11, one has placed among the top 10 three times, while five others have placed twice. The runner that made all state three times was Tony May, while the four placing twice were Brad Seibel, Jeff Seibel, Kris Johnson, Uave Stout and Bob Lowen. First place finishers were Lowen in 1970, May in 1972, and Brad Seibel this season. When asked who he thought was best runner ever, coach times, Maska said it would be hard to say, but if it was based on their times on the same courses, it would have to be Brad Seibel. "The runner with most potential in the eight years would have to be Dave Stout," said coach Maska. In state competition, Stout placed 10th his sophomore year, and second as a junior, but had to sit out his senior year because of a leg injury. Other Hays High runners to earn all-state honors have been Greg Brown fourth, Doug Leiker ninth, Steve Lowen 10th, Steve Clark seventh, Dick Turney eighth, and John Hrungardt eighth.
