Main St. Phone S5B - 857 llant running of fullback Donald Gentry and the sterling defensive play of center Montroe Holland, could find no match for the aerials at Jerry Yielding, Jonesboro's all- state fullback so they bowed out in the last half after matching the Whirlwinds yard for yard in the early stages of the game. Yielding tossed but 11'passes with five of them finding their marks but his aerial attack was good for 51 yards and It set up two of the Whirlwinds' three touchdowns and two more went for an extra point. The Paps, In spite ol their inexperience, looked good and they made mistakes that will aid them in. future contests as much as a week's practice. Their biggest weakness was dffense but there were times during the game when they looked like veterans and on these occasions they stonpcd Jonesboro's tricky split-T cold. Gentry, who is witnessing his second year as a Pap starter, was by far the classiest-running back on jhe field. He knifed throueh the Jonesboro line behind good blocking time after time for long gains for the Paps and he turned In what some spectators called the prettiest run at Jonesboro's Woodland Field in many a day. an 84-yai-d ktckoff return for Blythcville's only touchdown. Gentry Score for Paps That came the first'quarter aftcr Jonesboro had scored it's first six- poinler. Gentry took the kick on his own 16. picked up his Mocking nicely, cut to the sidelines and was away. Montroe Holland and blocking back Johnnie O'Brien gave him key blocks at.the 5fl and from there on he had the field all to him- scli. Jonesboro scored its first touchdown after four minutes to play in the first quarter. Guard Verlon .Homer broke through to block a Gentry punt on the Blytheville 30 and a team mate recovered nn the Pap's 25. TKO plays later halfback Roland Smlth'skirted through a nice hole inside the Paps right end to score'from the 17. ; Jonesboro scored again in the second quarter thanks to a beautiful Yielding pass. Yielding passed to end Vance Cook on the Blytheville !5- and he went to the 10 from where halfback Bobby Rogers scored on a , delayed buck. Yielding passed to quarterback pete Gcis for the extra point and at halftlme Jonesboro led 13-6. Drive Boss Down The Paps got another scoring drive underway in the .third quarter and with the aid of two consecutive penalties moved all the. way to the Jonesboro six before the Whirlwind defense dug In and slopped the drive. Aftcr that the Paps never came back, nicy weren't able to get another sustained drive underway.
