The Buffaloes upset Dodge !ity's state 4-A champions, 12 to here Friday night for their third victory against one loss, 'hat to Liberal. Coach Fayne Henson of Garden City said before the season Buhler Dumps Inmaii BUHLER - The'Buhler Crusaders celebrated homecoming festivities by tripping Inman 19-13 Friday night in a Mid- Kansas League football col- lison. Mike McCoy's eight - yard touchdown run got the Crusaders on the Scoreboard in the first period. Kirk Sewett sprinted 48 yards to paydirt to give Buhler a 15-13 lead at half. Two safties, one by Glen Smith and another by Dee Hodges wrapped up the game for the Crusaders. They are now 3-1 for the year. Inman has a 1-3 record.

Ms team lacked experience in the line, and overall was slow and small, and that "any improvement over last' year's record would take an unbelievable effort." 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 goa in the first half. Garden City had a 6-0 edge a 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 icoring 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 Cen- ;ral Kansas league play, Garden City is now 2-0, and Dodge City is 1-1.
