But the chicks lead was short- lived for the Terriers bounced right back to knot up the score. Taking the after-touchdown kicker on their 30. the Terriers tried another Maley to Edwards pass but It was long arjd then Maley cut through a hole inside his own left tackle, angled nicely for the sidelines and scampered 62 yards to the BIy- theville eight. There. Edwords swapped places with reserve Walter Burke, a 130- nonnd tackle, and Burke In three cracks . at the. line crossed into Pay dirt.

' -' ' , ' . However, the tilt was a non-conference one'for the Indians as Por- tagevllle will not begin official conference play in the Little Eight until next year. The Indians ground eating passing attack never got started. An aggressive Portageville line was largely responsible for stopping the visitors' aerial game. Haytl's passer's Just didn't have time to get the ball off and the Indian offense never .penetrated Portageville territory with any serious scoring threats. FortaBeville picked up its first score in the first quarter when Hayti's Notgrass dropped back to punt. The Porlageville line sifted through and the kick was smothered end recovered on the Hayti seven. Three plays were needed, for the yards each for a total of 55 yards. penalty against the Chicks moved the bail to the 10. Jensen went over, tackle to the two and an offside penalty against the Chicks put the ball on the one from where A5aley plowed inside tackle to score. Jensen on the extra point try fumbled the pass from center, picked the ball up on the 15 and ran through the entire left side of the BIytheville line to give the Terriers a 14-7 lead. A Terrier punt blocked by one of their own players set up the Chicks' second touchdown. The Chicks had punted to the Canines on their own 25 and the ball went Into play there. Maley tried one running play but tile Chicks' big forwards rose up to stop him for a one-yard loss and he elected to gamble with a quick kick on second down. Maley stepped back from the regular single wing formation but he didn't step back quite far enough and kicked the ball squarely Into the back of Jensen who was protecting him, and a BIy- theville muddy shirt covered the ball at the 20. Chicks Score Again Lutes fumbled but Lum recovered for a four- yard loss on the first play and on the second Mel Hay passed a beauty to end John Hutcherson in the end zone for the touchdown. The Chicks fumbled on the extra point try and the score stood at 14-13 Catholic. Blytheville's defense stiffened nfter that touchdown and forced the Terriers to punt from their own 15- yard line. The punt was almost blocked but Maley got it away with the ball going out on the Catholc 45. Hay came back in to statt another aerial attack and threw to Hutcherson again but the ball sailed over his head. A 15-yard roughness penalty gave the Chicks a fust down on the Terriers' 30 and on the next play, Hay found Lum in the end zone and spotted him perfectly witli a 30-yard heave for the Chicks' third touchdown. Reid sloshed his way over ta'ckle into the end zone foV the,extra point. At halftimc the score read 20-14 BIytheville. That wns al! of the scoring for the night. The last two quarters was a battle of defenses and punts. Both teams threatened in the latter quarters, however, and In the fourth period the Terriers on a well executed pass play scored the tying touchdown but it was called back to the BIytheville 30 and the Terriers penalized 15 yards for clip- png. Tlie pass went from Malcy to halfback Dan Bruch in the flat at the Catholic 15 with Bruch going 83 yards to pay dirt but the officials rilled clipping at the 30 and the score was nullified. Terriers Forced lo Punt The Chicks held, forcing the Terriers lo punt after the touchdown ivas called back and for the remainder of the quarter the Chicks controlled the ball except for two plnys when the two teams traded fumbles at the BIytheville 20. The game ended at the Blylhe- ville 20 with a first class rhubarb Lhat could easily have developed Into a free-for-all had it not been for the quick action of the coaches •n getting their players off the field. In spite of the roughness and numerous visible fouls In the game penalties were relatively few. The Chicks were assessed two 15-yard penalties and five more for five tackle . up a first i Tlie 'Terriers' were assessed three 15- a roughivss | yarders ana two, more for five yards each for a total of 55 yards. As far as the roughness was concerned It would be hard to single out any one player or either team, as .a matter of fact, as the direct cause. It was the general opinion of the tans and players alike that it was as much one's fault as It was the other. la any event, there were plenty of fouls visible to the fans and both teams were criticized severely. Play ot both teams Improved considerably In tlie second half, how ever, and this can be laid to the coaches who evidently gave the players a little extra special in th« way of a between halves pep talk. To single out offensive and defensive stars of either team would be the next thing to the impossible. Everybody played hard but the unusual amount ot roughness in the first half overshadowed any spectacular performance by any one or group of players. , For the Chicks it WHS their third win of the season against two defeats, boosting their average past the .500 mark. And for the Terriers it was their fifth consecutlv. loss of the season. Starting lineups: Catholic High I>os. Blyiheville Hill L.E GurlC' Under L.T Lloyt McDonald .... L.O Phillips Stewart G. ...

Through the line, Lange's offense was slopped cold but their sweeping end runs sparked by Donald "Duck" Webb. "Lefty" Hurt and Geno Penn were the deciding factor. Jodie Hall was the one-man show for the Tide both oil offense and defense. Central received the opening kick-off and kept the boll unti the last play of the period, racking up three consecutive first downs and moving the ball almost the length of the'field before losing it on downs on the Lange 15. Lange's first play from scrimmage was an omen of things to come »s Webb skirted right end for 20 yards. On the first play of the second quarter Webb again carried and reached the five before being downed. David Holt then went over on a reverse for the TD. Webb made the extra point on a short end run.
