FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS S PAGE FIVE Chicks Score Three Times In Opening- Quarter Oi[ Game Blytheville's triumphant Chicks hung up their steaming togs for the season Wednesday night with complete satisfaction, a few minutes after they had climaxed their successful 1940' grid-campaign:* witli a convincing 25-0 win over the Forrest City Mustangs. The score was particularly satisfying- because some people in the state had intimated the Chicks didn't have the stuff, although thev clinched the 1940 conference title a weel:*- ago. The Mustangs had not lost a conference game, had tied Jones- bcrp which handed Blytheville their only defeat, and the opinion prevailed that Coach Joe Dildy's Chicks might even suffer the humiliation of another loss. ;nd ran 49 yards to cross the Forrest City -goal line before an official called the play back.

They stampeded, the wild Mustangs with a 'first quarter scoring spree on runs by Monk Mcsley and Sonny Lloyd that put the Chicks well out in front with a . 19-0 lead that they protected zealously through the fourth quarter wen the Chicks marched 5>i yards to sco v re again. on little Elliott Saliba's plunge from the three-yard line. The Chicks did something else noteworthy. They held the Mustangs scoreless for ttfe first time tiiis year. Blythevilla-allowed- the visitors ten first downs, the same number the Chicks rolled . ; up, but they did a jam-up" job of stopping Forrest City's hammering^ • backs when it counted. They, ^denied, plunging Frank Webb and Andy Forrester anything like a chance at a score, although these stars performed well, until they got into Chick territory. They also pretty- well covered the passes of crippled Vem Turk, who was badly handicapped with a leg injury, but who played gamely in spite of it. Standouts in the Forrest City line were Wally Wcody, hefty left guard who turned in a fine performance ... and Al Stewart, .left! Harrts • wingman, who made himself con-' tory then ripped the line for 14 yards for another first down on the ten. Sonny plunged seven yards and then Saliba bucked the ball across for the Chicks final score. Turk opened up with passes, one of which, was intercepted b.y Saliba on the Chick 29. Blytheville moved, back up the field but suffered a clipping penalty of 15 yards, but, even,then-made a first down on the Forrest City 44 where' Andy Forrester recovered a Chick Tumble..

On the next play, .Mosley took the ball, was chased back across the mklfield stripe by the charging Mustang line, but danced., around and shook loose, as he tore out for the east sideline as his blockers went to work. Once under way the speedy little Chick flash showed his heels and went over standing up after his 46-yard run. It was a typical Mosley run and Monk's last touchdown trip for the Chicks. Alertness on the part of Leroy Ross. Chick end. who recovered Turk's blocked punt on the Forrest City three-yard line ~gave the Chicks their next scoring chance a couple of minutes later. Lloyd needed but one play to plunge it over the goal line. The next touchdown came even quicker as Webb returned the kick- cff to his 31 and Turk tried to pass.
