HAYS DAILY NEWS PAGE 15 December 19, 1978 Hays High Indians Defeat Manhattan, Go 3-0 In CKL .-. By STEVE CLARK Special to The Daily News .MANHATTAN - It was just a matter of time before Hays High's offensive machine, which has scored 34 points in a single quarter, got warmed up here Friday night. Unfortunately f.or •Manhattan, it took the explosive Indians less than four .minutes to get its act together 'and the resulting 16-2 spurt provided a cushion that Hays rode to a 69-52 CKL victory. > Manhattan grabbed a quick ••>- 'and''it's only — lead of the game, 7-6, when guard Terry Langton completed a three- point play with 4:58 remaining in the opening period. But quicker than the Grinch stole Christmas, the undefeated Indians swiped the .game, wrapped it up and .presented coach Mike Leas with his fourth win of the year. -Hays is 3-0 in the CKL. .. -Handy Brehm, a 6-4 leaper, started the blitz as he drilled in seven straight points to ,n)ake it 13-7. Center Dave •Hays added a bucket and then Bill Giles took charge. Giles, a 6-4 senior who .possesses springs for legs, .connected on three long-range ; shots and added a free throw — all in just 69 seconds. The Indians led at the end of the quarter, 22-11, and Manhattan, ranked no. 8 in 4- A, never recovered. But it wasn't for lack of effort. Manhattan played an extremely agressive man-to- man defense, however, the slick-passing, fast-breaking Indians were too much. That and the absense of Tim Jankovich sent Manhattan to it's second loss in four games and dipped it's CKL mark to 12. Jankovich, one of the better guards in the state, sprained an ankle in Manhattan's second game of the year. The ankle is now in a cast and the 6-1 senior is expected to be out for at least three weeks. "He 'would have helped," Manhattan coach Paul Sexton sighed afterward, "but they just put it to us. There's nothing else you can say.'' Manhattan did creep within six points during the second quarter, but Brehm rolled in a shot at the buzzer to give Hays a 31-23 lead at intermission. .During the third quarter, the Indians' lead again shrank to six, 33-27, but Giles' continued to be on target with his 20-footers. He finished the period with 11 points and Hays was on top, 51-35. Giles took game scoring honors with 25 points (11 of 15 from the field), led all rebounders with 13 grabs and dished out six assists. "Bill had a sensational offensive game," Leas said. "He rebounded ' well, he passed well." And he had plenty of support as the Indians hit a torrid 56 percent from the field and Manhattan sank just 35 per cent. The tribe's largest lead of the night was 18 points, 66-48, and came with just 1:16 remaining in the game. Dave Hays, a 6-5 senior, with exceptional quickness for a center, spent most of the evening defending, himself against the tag-team tactics of 6-5 Mark Dickerson and 6-3 Larry Courtney, who between themselves totaled nine fouls. Despite the pounding, Hays maneuvered for 17 points, including 13 after halftime, and hauled down 10 rebounds. Brehm, who entered the contest averaging 14.7 rebounds, latched onto only five, but he blocked four shots and scored 13 points. At guards, Bob Wiesner scored a season-high nine points, and Kirk Maska, despite a touch of the flu, handed out four assists. For Manhattan, Steve Sexton, the coach's son, tallied 12 points and Langton added 10. In .the junior varsity game, Manhattan unleashed a full court press and riddled Hays, 90-48. Pat Buchanan of Manhattan led all scorers with 29 points. Greg Hobbs topped Hays with 20,18 of which came in the first half. > llnys (69) fg Maska Wiesner Hays Brehm Giles Shade Wilbur Wall Meier Totals Manhattan (52) fg Dickerson Burden Langton Sexton Able Blakely Courtney Favrow Schwab ft 1- 5 .4- 7 fi-m 5-R 11-15 .0- 1 .0- 1 0- 1 0- 0 2748 ft , 3* 8 3- 6 4-lfl B-12 .0- 1 2- fl 3- 7 ()- (1 0- 0 rb 0- 2 1- 2 5- 7 3-4 3- 7 3-4 0- 0 0-0 0- 1 15-27 rb 0- 3 2- 3 2- 3 0- 0 2- 2 2- 3 2- 2 0- 0 0- 0 P< 1 4 10 5 13 2 0 0 1 36 1 Pi B 6 6 6 1 5 3 0 0 4 4 3 2 1 0 12 1 18 4 4 3 4 1 2 5 0 I) IP 2 9 17 13 25 3 0 0 0 69 IP 6 8 10 12 2 6 8 0 0 Totals 21-60 10-16 35 24 52 Hays B (48) Klaus 8, Steffen 2, Moses 6, Hobbs 20, Pfannenstiel 2, Lowman 2, Adam 2, Meier 6.

Steeler Doubters Silenced BY JOE CARNICELLI UPI Executive Sports Editor BALTIMORE (UPI) — There were those who predicted in October that the Pittsburgh Steelers would never get the chance to defend their National Football League title. They were wrong. It took a near miraculous effort but Pittsburgh is in the playoffs again and looking to become the first team ever to win three consecutive Super Bowls. It could be the most difficult road they've had to cover to the title. The Steelers lost four of their first five games and then roared back to win their last nine and the American Conference Central Division playoff berth. Over that nine-game span, the Steelers established themselves as the premier defensive team in pro football, allowing just 28 points, including just two touchdowns, in overtaking Cincinnati. Sunday Pittsburgh turns to the other end of the spectrum, the Baltimore Colts, the AFC Eastern champion at 113 and the leading offensive club in the NFL. They meet at Memorial Stadium at 2 p.m. EST, with the winner to play for the AFC title and a Super Bowl berth next Sunday. "We're ready as we'll ever be," said Steeler Coach Chuck Noll. "We know what we have to do to win—just play the same kind of football we have for the last nine weeks." The clubs met last year at Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs in almost reverse roles. It was Pittsburgh which took an early lead in the AFC Central race and cruised into the playoffs. And it was Baltimore which had to struggle throughout the season and defeat Miami for the AFC East title after a 2-12 finish the year before. Pittsburgh knocked out Colt quarterback Bert Jones with a bruised arm on the first series and then went on to win 21-10. The Steelers then defeated Oakland for the AFC title and Dallas in the Super Bowl. "We'll have to play our best football of the year to beat them," said Baltimore Coach Ted Marchibrotia. "Pittsburgh is simply a strong team. I wish I knew their weakness. They win with their defense and you can go down their defensb man-for-mut) and practically pick every player for the All Pro team. "Having the home field helps. At home you have the fans going for you. Youlre also more familiar with everything, more acclimated. My own involvement in the playoffs in the past has been nine games. The only two we won were at home." Despite Pittsburgh's impressive finish, Marchibroda isn't running down . his own club. "You have to have great strength to win nine straight weeks in the National Football League," he explained. "The Steelers were a much stronger club last year going into the playoff game with us than we were. And they are better now than they were last year ... they had to be. "But we're a pretty good team ourselves. It'll take a helluva effort but the Steelers can be had. We'll be ready for them ... I can assure you of that," Rams Hope For Re-Write Of Last Year's Playoff Script IRVING, Tex. (UPI) - Los Angeles and Dallas conduct one of their periodic postseason meetings Sunday and the Rams are looking for something a little different this time around. The first-round NFL playoff game will be a rematch of last season's NFC championship game, a contest the Cowboys ran away with, 37-7. "I'm not concerned about last year," said Los Angeles coach Chuck Knox. "But I would say we are due. Los Angeles has not won in Dallas since 1967. And one of the losses since then was a first-round playoff setback to the Cowboys three years ago. "You should not look back unless you want to go back," said Knox. Both teams enter the Super Bowl chase on less than solid ground. Dallas has been installed a three-point favorite. The Rams, who have changed quarterbacks often this year because of injury, have spent the past week not knowing for certain who will start at that position. But Knox said Saturday that he had decided on Pat Haden as his playoff starter. "This will be the fourth different starting quarterback we've had in four consecutive years of being in the playoffs," said Knox. "I think that is unprecedented in the NFL." Haden, a rookie, was picked over James Harris, a veteran, despite a knee sprain Haden suffered last week against Detroit. "Pat actually missed only a very small portion of the work this week he would normally have had," said Knox. Dallas, meanwhile, has had major offensive problems the last part of the season, culminated by a poor showing last weekend against Washington. Roger Staubach completed only five of 22 passes in the Redskins loss. "I would not say we could not win if Roger played poorly," said Dallas coach Tom Landry. "But it would become very hard to win."
