But after collecting their wits during halftime, they returned to give Coach Russ Mosley's undefeated and un- 'tled "squad a real battle. Kentucky Back Big and Fast In Jim Sanford, a 205-pound wingback and tailback, the Panthers showed the Chicks one of the best, if not the best back they have Been all year. It.was Sanford who carried most of the offensive loa'd in the game. Extremely fast considering his weight, Sanford churn- 'ed his knees through-and'mound the Chicks' line 17 times and he reeled on* a total of 111 yards for a night's average of 10.05 yards each time he carried. Hay brought the crowd to its feet In the early minutes of the game when he tossed three straight touchdown passes, one that carried ' for moire than 60 yards, another 40 and the third for 15. Actually, the Chicks scored the first three times they got the ball and got their first two touchdowns In but four plays. The first one came on their third play from . scrimmage and the second on their £ fourth. ' The Chicks kicked off to Hussell- ville to open the game but the Panthers in three downs gained bu six yards and hnlbnck Howard \Vrenn punted to Hay at the BIythe ville 40 and Hay returned to th Russellville 45. Halfback Charley Lutes tried t get the ground game underway bu managed only four yards. Then h sent fullback-Robert Reid bulldoz ing over the other side but the Pan ther line slapped him back afte a one yard gain. Hay then faded t mid-field, caught end Ted Vane sneaking behind the safety ma and fired one to him at the _fiv yard line. Vance went on to scor untouched. Criner's Aim Gon Guard Leroy Criner, who gaine the nickname of "Automatic" be fore the night was over, kicked th first of six points after touchdow to give the Chicks a 7-0 lead. The Chicks kicked ofl again at the Blytheville 39 and that se them in motion. Wrenn. a 16-year-old. 135-pounc nior, who did everything in th ay of offense for the Panthers ot the range on one of his receiv rs and threw 29 yards to end Jo iardy at the Blytheville 10.

Tlie Chicks elected to run out of ,he hole and Reid bulled his way o the 13 yard line before being stopped, but a fumble on the next >lay put tlie tribe right back in a :iole at tlie six.- Lutes moved out to .he 13 on a pass from Hay and then Hay punted out of bounds al the eid. with two tacklers on his back, -.oved over tackle to the Russell- ille 15 to set up the fifth touch-i own.
