The Citadel didn't have much of a weekend in the mountains. What they endured more resembled a head-on confrontation with a runaway truck in a one-way tunnel. And that's how things went one way as Appalachian State took the bite out of the Bulldogs, 33-10, before a sunbaked crowd of 20,800,the second-largest crowd to ever see a game in Conrad Stadium. Offensively, ASU outgained The Citadel by 200 yards, rolling up 307 yards on the ground. John Settle, the Southern Conference's top rusher, totaled 128 yards. Defensively, the Mountaineers held the Bulldogs to 35 yards rushing. Not only was the win ASU's third in four outings this season, it was also the Mounties third straight in the conference. The Citadel, 2-2, fell to 0-1 in the league race. "Apalachian State lived up to their pre-season billing," said Citadel coach Tom Moore of the Mountaineers, ranked 10th nationally and picked to win both the conference and, in some corners, the I-AA national title. "There was no emotion on our football team at all today. We aren't getting after the football and that s the key." The other key came in the first eight minutes of each half. On each ocassion the Mountaineers turned their first possession into a touchdown, then added points fol- Inwino RnlMno turnovers. In all, Settle 24 of ASU's 33 points came during the initial eight minutes of each half. After the Mountaineers took a 17-0 lead early in the second quarter, it appeared the only excitement here would be watching the leaves change hues. The Bulldogs finally got their offense untracked in the second quarter, marching 73 yards for a touchdown and adding a 37-yard Greg Davis field goal as time expired in J , the half. "The game was within our grasp at halftime and we come right out and allow them to drive 81 yards for a touchdown," said Moore. "That really took our momentum, as did our inability to score early in the second half.' By the time the second half was nearly 8 minutes old, ASU led 27-10. The Mountaineers' 81-yard drive was capped by a diving touchdown catch by Troy Douglas on a 21-yard pass from Todd Payton, and two plays later Bulldog quarterback Kip Allen fumbled at the ASU 14-yard-line. Bjorn Nittmo kicked the second of his school-record four field goals and the Mountaineers led by 17. "At the start of the game and the start of the third quarter we didn't do anything to create any excitement on our football team," said Moore. "This (game) would have given us a leg up if we had won, but now we have to go in a different direction." The Mountaineers forced a Citadel team that hadn't fumbled all season 210 offensive plays in three games into four fumbles, three of which ASU recovered.

Western Carolina's big plays came in pairs here Saturday night a pair of touchdown passes by Willie Perkins, a pair of touchdowns by Milton Beck, a pair of field goals by Kirk Roach and a pair of interceptions by safety Charles Harrison. The end result was the first victory of the season for Western, a 34-24 triumph over Newberry College before a crowd of 10,235 at Whitmire Stadium. Perkins completed 14 of 24 passes for 189 yards and kept the Indians, of the South Atlantic Conference, off-balance most of the night. Wide receiver Vince Nowell caught 5 passes for 86 yards and tight end Alonzo Carmichal made 5 receptions for 65 yards. Beck and Otis Washington, who alternated at tailback, both finished with 66 yards rushing. Newberry tailback Pete Bember led all rushers with 144 yards on 21 carries and 2 TDs. It was a flawless offensive performance for the Cats (1-2), who did not committ a single turnover. Newberry's 3 turnovers all came on pass interceptions, two by Harrison and one by Fred Davis. Harrison's first interception and Davis' theft both set up WCU touchdowns. Harrison's sec ond interception came on the final play of the game. Western scored three times in the second quarter -- a pair of touchdowns and Roach's 52-yard field goal as the buzzer sounded - to take a 27-10 halftime lead. Roach's three-pointer was his seventh in a row dating back to last season and came after the Cats were hit with a 5-yard holding penalty on the previous play. The Catamounts grabbed a 10-7 first-quarter lead and then proceeded to dominate virtually the entire second period, scoring twice within less than a three-minute span. CarmichaeFs 7-yard touchdown reception from Perkins capped a 7-play, 42-yard drive. Roach kicked the extra point and the Cats led 17-7 at the 10: 16 mark of the period. Two plays into" Newberry's next possession, disaster struck the Indians. WCU defensive back Davis stepped in front of flanker Darryl Owings and picked off a pass from QB Pat Bellamy to give the Cats possession at the Newberry 18. Three plays later Beck scored on a 2-yard sweep around the right side. Roach kicked the extra point to increase WCU's lead to 24-7 with 7:43 left in the first half. Beck was slow in getting up on the play and had to be helped off the field and into the locker room. He suffered an injury to his left ankle on the play and was taken to the hospital for X-rays. According to a WCU spokesman, the injury appeared to be a serious one. Beck returned to the stadium in the fourth quarter, using crutches and wearing a brace on his ankle. Western goes back on the road next week, traveling to Aubum, Ala., to take on the nationally-ranked Auburn War Eagles in a Homecoming contest. Newberry returns home to meet nationally second-ranked Mars Hill.

Its quarterback dilemma apparently resolved, Wofford College turned in its steadiest performance of the season Saturday in beating Liberty College, 17-3. Quarterback Chuck Fraser, hampered by tendinitis in his feet for several weeks, played the whole game for the Terriers. Fraser, a 5-foot-8 junior from Anderson, guided two scoring drives in the first half and the Wofford defense covered six turnovers, limiting Liberty to a fourth-quarter touchdown. "Our win was a great team victory," said coach Rick Gilstrap, whose team has won half its four games. "We showed a lot of unity and had some good leadership on the field today." Fraser, who has fought off bids by Bryan Becknell and Steve Kah-ler, completed 11 of 23isses for 141 yards and a nine-yard touch down to flanker Freddie Logan in the second quarter. In addition, sophomore tailback Andrew Warner rushed for 87 yards on 26 carries, including the game's first touchdown. His five-yard run and Brett Schulman's kick effectively gave the Terriers defense led by senior safety Anthony Johnson and sophomore linebacker Bret Masters the margin it needed. A "We received a number of significant and impressive contributions from the special teams, defense and offense," said Gilstrap. "On offense, Warner and (Tim) Forman ran hard and we had some big plays with Fraser, Logan and Steve Mabrey." Wofford intercepted three passes and recovered three Liberty fumbles and turned back several thrusts in the second half before quarterback Paul Johnson hit Ike Logan for a 25-yard touchdown in the final quarter. , "Defense played very well in the clutch in the fourth quarter," said Gilstrap. "Offense played well for three quarters. The' fourth quarter offensively will give them plenty to work on this week. Wofford next faces Presbyterian, ranked 17th in the most recent NAIA poll.

The Citadel also suffered a blow that could haunt them down the road when defensive back Albert Pressley went out with a possible broken ankle in the third quarter.

PC uses infantry to win By Willie T. Smith HI The Greenville News CLINTON Presbyterian opened its 1986 South Atlantic Conference season in impressive fashion with a 24-0 win over Lenoir-Rhyne at Bailey Memorial Stadium Saturday night. The Blue Hose performance could best be described as workmanlike. PC was not spectacular, but it was also never in danger from the Bears. Presbyterian's defense was solid. Although it allowed Lenoir-Rhyne to pick up valuable yards at times, it managed to stop the Bears when it had to. The offense appears to be steadily improving behind senior quarterback Scotty Mozingo. ) "This is the best looking Presbyterian offense I've seen in a long time," Lenoir-Rhyne head coach John Perry said. "Their quarterback is a heck of a player and their backs are so hard to tackle. I felt we played well tonight, we just couldn't stop them. PC looks awfully good." The Blue Hose picked up 396 yards, with tailbacks Jimmy Lind-sey and Stevie Riggins combining for 208 of the 272 yards on the ground. Riggins picked up 118 yards on 13 carries, including a 65-yard fourth quater touchdown run. And Lindsey added 90 yards on 10 carries and scored on a 47-yard pass play in the first quarter. "We really didn't do anything different this week than we have in our first two games this season," Lindsey said. "We just wanted to continue to run as hard as we could." At times, though, the Blue Hose looked ragged. They were hampered by penalties several times. "Right now we're a ragged football team," PC head coach Elliott Poss said. "We've got work harder at eliminated those penalties, but I'm confident we'll be able to work it out." Lindsey started the scoring for the Presbyterian with 3:34 to play in the first quarter when he took a Mozingo at the Lenoir-Rhyne 47 and raced down the right sideline for a touchdown. Chris Wingo's extra point gave the Blue Hose a 7-0 lead. As the PC defense continued to play strong in the second half, things also began to click for the offense. Wingo began things in the second with a 32-yard field goal with 10:02 to play in the third period. Riggins then added On his touchdown run, Riggins managed to dance through the entire L-R defense for the score. Freshman fullback Derrick Smalls completed the scoring on a 2-yard run with 2:29 to play. The Blue Hose again got the ball late, but elected to sit on the ball and run the clock out. "I think our running game is much better this year," Lindsey said. "Last year it appeared that Stevie and I had to shoulder most of the load, but this year Telford Holmes, Evander Gerald and Derrick Smalls are running well. Scotty Mozingo is really looking good, too. Presbyterian, who came into the game tied for 18th nationally in the NAIA polls, has a 2-1 record. Lenoir-Rhyne is 22 and 0-1 respectively. '
