Four Kerrvllle Mountain Sun, Kerrvllle, Texas, October 18, 1958 "A Jtarvm* /MHt«Mm For iton Than ft Tarrf There's No Joy in Kingsville! Antlers Topple Brahmas, 50-6 Great Tivy Teamwork Mauls Touted Brahmas Co-Captains of Winning Antlers A crowd of Kinpfsville football fans who had conn 1 up foi the fUu-r (.romping; snt in popeyed hori'or Friday ni^ht in Antler Stadium and told themselves over and over again, "This can't happen to us," :is a fired-up Antler eleven rnii roughshod over the KinRsville Eralimas, rolling up a final score of 50 to fi. It. just wasn't supposed t" happen, for the Brahmas who were undefeated—up to Friday night, that is—had been rateci by various statisticians from second to fourth in the State ,1-A League, and they were, pickc-1 to defeat Tivy by two or three touchdowns. The Antlers, apparently weren't aware of this situation, for they took charge of the game early in the first quarter, »nd they never let it get out of control. Tommy Dan- ncls and Alton Rhoden covered the most ground, but every Antler in the lineup had a part in the victory. To name a hero for the game would be to call the Antler roll, for Tivy demonstrated one of the greatest team efforts seen in Antler Stadium. They tore the touted Kingsville line to shreds, mobbed hot-footed Preacher Pilot until he was happy to hand off the ball to someone else, and then ran, passed and drove through th': Brahmas throughout the four quarters. Tivy scored twice ea^h in the first, third and fourth quarters and once in the second for seven touchdowns, making good four two-point conversions. The Brahmas' only score came at the beginning of the fourth quarter after a long drive from their own 35-yard line. The Brahmas played the game without several key men, including their first-string quarterback, Doug Harvey, one of their principal ground gainers through the middle of the line. Also out of action was Bass, H first-string end. First Quarter Preacher Pilot kicked off for the Brahmas to Craig LeMeil- letir on the Antler two-yard line and Craig raced to the 21. Alton Rhoden tried a pass that went long, and LeMeilleur and Tommy Daniels made short gains, but Chalk punted on fourth down to Alvarez, who fumbled but recovered on his own 30. Fourth down found the Brah- mas needing 12 yards, and Johnson kicked to Rhoden on the 30, Sweetpea racing back to his 45 before running afoul of Preacher Pilot. Homer Stevens picked up 3, and then Tommy Daniels broke loose around the Brahma end nnd raced 22 yards to the Kingsville 30 before he was hit hard and fumbled, but the fast Tivy halfback managed to cover his own fumble for a first down. Stevens and LeMeilleur made two short gains and Rhoden fumbled on a keeper, but Gilbert Rowe pounced on the ball on the Brahma 16. Stevens then raced through to the four, Le- Meilleur picked up another yar and Stevens drove over for thn first Antler score. Rhoden heaved a perfect pass to Daniels in the end zone for the two extra points, to put the Antlers in business with an 8-0 lead. Walter Poppe kicked over the goal line, and the Brahmas started from their 20. Pilot gained a yard, and then ran into Francis Butler to lose another. Hill tried right end, but Rhoden said "No," after he gained two yards, and Pilot kicked on fourth down to Rhoden who Look the ball on his 45 and handed off to Daniels who came back to the Brahma 37 before he was stopped. A holding penalty set Tivy back to their own lf>, and Rhoden heaved a long pass that was too high for Lu- Meilleur. Stevens tore through guard for six, and Rhoden tossed a short pass to Daniels that was good to the Brahma 34, and two more short gains made it a first down, on the Brahma 2(5. Rhoden then uncorked a pass to Tommy Daniels that went to the 3-yard line before Alvarez made the tackle.
