Using power plays as their main offensive threat the Bulldogs scored in all but the second period, com- Jj|letery outclassing the visitors. The C^ulldogs scored one of their touchdowns on a pass and the other four on ground plays. -*The Bulldogs got things going last, scoring their Initial touchdown in the early minutes of the nrst quarter. They started their opening drive In their own territory and halfback Tommy Boyles climaxed it by gathering in a Howard Woodyard pass from the eight- yard line In the end zone. The try for extra point failed. Late in the quarter the Bulldogs scored again with Boyles plunging over from the eight yard spot after setting up the score by taking in another Woodyard pass from the 30. Gene Woodyard's kick for the extra Point was good and Wilson led 13-0. In the second quarter the visitors offered their only major threat • of the night, a sustained -drive that started deej> in their own territory but bogged down on the Wilson 18. After that drive the Wildcats were never able to get another drive underway. Score In Third Period The Bulldogs scored again In the third period with reserve back Muney plunging over from the Trumann thre % e to climax Wilson's third long drive. Again Gene Woodyard's kick was good and the score read 20-0. A blocked punt at the opening of the fourth quarter set up Wil- .son's fourth touchdown. The kick was blocked on the Trumann 42 and the Bulldogs got possession of •Khe ball there. After several good •'•^forward pass gains Howard Woodyard plowed over from the nine but One Woodyard missed his extra Point try.

Chicks Add 14 Afore The third quarter was scarcely two minutes old before the Chicks had another 14 points added to their score. They kicked to 'Jonesboro on the Hurricane 25 to open the second half and Scott, after being thrown for a nine-yard loss by guard Leroy Crlner tried the air again and Lutes intercepted on the 30 'and returned to the Hurricane 14. Reid went over tackle to the four but the play was nullified by an off-side penalty. Reid tried tackle'again and this time moved to the goal line but again Blytheville was ruled offside and the play was called back. On his third attempt Reid tried the same tackle hole and stepped off the 14 yards to the end zona and this time the play stood. Gee came in to kick the extra point but the ball was centered over Luin's head and was downed. Lloyd kicked again to the Jonesboro 15 with Lawrence returning to the 15. On the first Scott, who was beginning to show signs of gun shyness after having been pasted several times by the hard charging i Blytheville forwards, lateralled | wildly to fullback Lawrence on a pltchout and end John Hutcherson fell on the ball on the Hurricane 25. Five plays later it was another touchdown for the Chicks. Reid tried tackle but was stopped for no gain. Lutes cut Inside tackle for five and Hutcherson on an end around went to' the Jonesboro five but a clipping penalty at the 11 put the ball back on the 2-s.

Reid was slowed down a bit by a leg Injury received in the Pine Bluff game but he ripped off nice yardage with plenty of power. And Lum was his same diminutive self, a pint-sized headache on both offense and defense. Chick Power Pays Off For two quarters lhe Hurricane looked groat against the larger opposition but the Chicks' superior weight and power told off In the late quarters and after their brilliant first half showing Coach Dob Malcom's crew couldn't do much more lhan figiit back. Many observers thought Malcom had his squad I Keyed up loo high. They made mis- | takes, damaging mistakes and the breaks, for the most part went against them. Outstanding for the Hurricane was the running of Jack Troxell, a spindle-legged speedster who oper- eled at halfback. Troxell and his limning male, fullback Gerald Lawrence were the major part of the Hurricane's offense. Between them they accounted for nearly all of Jonesboro's yardage on the ground. Defensively, halfback Vance Brown who backed the line, looked good and Jack Caldwcll, a 180-pound sophomore tackle, showed good promises. Starting lineups: Blytheville Tos.

Surprises struck at the lop of the big six, the state's highest prep l-lgskin classification. Little Rock's Tigers, defending champions and favorites by some 40 points, had to come from behind twice to edge a winless Fort Smith eleven, 14-13. And El Dorado, rated as one of Little Rock's chief challengers, was 1 upended, 31-26, by Smackover, state runner-up last year in Class AA. Subiaco Academy loomed as a mighty big threat in the state Double-A fuss after its 20-13 conquest if powerful van Buren. Subiaco already has earned the right to rcp- icsent District Four in the playoffs, while Van Buren is the front-runner In District One. Pine Bluff's ,Zebras, now standing with Little' Rock as the only un-bealen Big sixers, had a : close call at Camclcn. Trailing 0-7 after the first, quarter, the Zebras came, back to carve out a 19-14 decision over the Class AA Panthers.
