Last year Garden City won three out of nine. It now has won three out of four, including the giant - killer conquest of Friday night over a Dodge City team which previously had downed Wichita East, Larned, and Liberal. Garden City had an edge in running and passing statistics, and the Garden City defenders just couldn't be moved when Dodge City was near the goal in the first half. Garden City had a 6-0 edge at halftime, on a three yard second quarter line smash by Don Pile, 170 pound junior back and linebacker. The extra point try failed. Dodge City got on the scoreboard in the third period, scoring on a six yard run by Vernon Lloyd. Kline kicked the extra point and Dodge fans, who hadn't seen their team lose since the 1969 season, figured things were back to normal. The Demons led 7-6. But Garden City was going all-out for this one, and a passing attack in the final period, mixed with line charges by Pile and Mike Brungardt, put the Buffs in range and quarterbeck Russ Boone whipped a 13 yard scoring pass to Steve Keller for the game winning touchdown. Both teams now own 3-1 records, following what many consider, the biggest upset in the 1971 prep season. In West Central Kansas league play, Garden City is now 2-0, and Dodge City is 1-1.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS It'll be Moody Blue against Steady Dave in the American League and the well-rested Bucs against the gasping Bay boys in the National League Saturday as four clubs begin the battle for two World Series berths. At Baltimore, the Orioles, who have won the East title in all three season since divisional play began, will start with veteran Dave McNally, 21-5 and a 20-game winner for four succes sive seasons. For the Oakland A's, new comers to championship play, sensational youngster Vida Blue, 24-8, seemingly tense on the eve of the opener, will be on the mound. No 20-Game Winners Neither Pittsburgh nor San Francisco have a 20-game winner on the roster but both will supply a blend of steady pitching and solid hitting in the National playoffs.

Manager Walter Alston, cen- terfielder Willie Davis and others pointed to the maturing youngsters who formed a big part of the Dodgers' array. 'I'm sure the kids improved during the season," said the veteran skipper, "and the race wouldn't have been as close if the kids hadn't improved."

Even the veteran starters of the pitching staff, Bill Singer and Don Sutton are only 27 and 26, respectively. Both scored 2-1 victories over Houston in the final series of the year when San Francisco also took two games from San Diego and won the title by a single game. "I'm disappointed we didn't go all the way but proud of the way the club has worked together as a unit, kids and vet erans alike," commented Alston. Davis observed, "A disappointing finish? Yes, but in a way it wasn't. We'll be up there for years to come." Buckner started at first base in the final Houston series and Valentine was at second for two of the contests. Although there was no official comment, the unofficial conjecture was on what the Dodgers might do with such veteran ball players as Richie Allen and Wes Parker. Allen finished out the season at third while Parker was used at first only in late inning defensive situations. The infielders of the youth brigade must still reckon with 39-year-old shortstop Maury Wills, the sparkplug of the Dodgers' stretch drive. Admitting his own disappointment at not winning, Wills declared shortly after the final game, "I can hardly wait for spring training to start."
