Sayre Trims Southside for 7th Straight, By AL MALLETTE SAYRE When you walk into Sayre's Lockhart St. Bowl you're greeted with a banner which reads "We're No. 1." The message might be right for the Twin Tiers, anyway. Tom McCabe's Redskins Friday night moved a step closer to' that much desired unbeaten, untied football season with a come-from-behind, 15-7, victory over Tom Hurley's battling Southside Green Hornets. Southside was expected to be Sayre's toughest roadblock to that 9-0 campaign. And. Hurley's Hornets went right after the Redskins, scoring the first time they got their hands on the football off a brilliant, 53-yard scamper by Clyde Stroman. Then, as McCabe's clubs have so often done, Sayre shut the door on the Hornets with rugged, alert defensive play which produced five intercepted passes and two recovered fumbles. Still, it took a crucial penalty, an intercepted pass and a poor SHS punt to set up Sayre's three touchdowns. .They came on a 42-yard dash by Mike Schweiger, a 24-yard run by Joe Ciotti and a two-yard keeper by quarterback Mike Dinan. The mark of a winner, though, is being able to capitalize on your opponent's mistakes. Sayre did just that to record its seventh straight victory and 31st in its last 34 football - games under McCabe's tutelage. Southside actually didn't perform like an 1&-7 loser. The Hornets held an edge in most of the yardage statistics but they couldn't overcome their own mistakes and the Redskins simply didn't make too many boo boos. Southside, mixing plays well and running easily to the outside behind good blocking, went 62 yards in five plays the first time it had the football. Quarterback Mike Kelly got a big 16 on a bootleg left and on a third-and-four from the Hornet 47, Kelly shuffled the ball right to Stroman and the swift Hornet back shot inside Sayre's left end, cut to the right sidelines and simply outran a half dozeri trailing Redskins. Mark Frampton's placement added a seventh point and the Hornets seemed in control. The Hornets marched rather freely throughout the rest of the first half, but mistakes cut off scoring opportunities. After the kickoff following the SHS touchdown the Hornets quick-charging defense seemed to have Sayre stymied and on a third-and-four from the Sayre 41, the Hornets buried Dinan for a 14-yard loss. But the Hornets were detected offsides and the five-yard penalty gave Sayre its first first down of the game. ' Two plays later Schweiger hit up the middle, appeared stopped, then broke away and raced 42 yards into the end zone. Schweiger tried to slam over for a two-point conversion but was stopped on the one and SHS still maintained a 7-6 edge. The second quarter Sayre TD was set up by the first of three Mark Hutchinson interceptions. Hutch picked Mike Kelly's pass out of the air on the Sayre 35 and carried back to the SHS 29 before being tackled. Two plays later Ciotti swung right, broke away from a lirte tackle, cut back to the middle of the field and simply ran past the SHS secondary for a 24-yard scoring play. Early in the' fourth quarter the Redskins struck again. The Hornets were bottled on their own 26 (SHS only gained a net five yards rushing inthe second half after rolling to139 in the first half) and Mark Bradt went back to punt. Bradt got off a poor punt that traveled only four yards past the line of scrimmage and the Redskins had possession on the SHS 30. Sayre went the 30 yards in five plays, Dinan scoring on a keeper from the two. The big play, though, was a Dinan to Craig Witmer pass good for 17 yards. It was one of only two completions in seven attempts 18-7 for the usually air-minded Redskins. Trailing lft-7 and time running out, SHS went allout with passes, second string QB Blane Ward completing four-of-five for 32 yards. The game ended on a Sayre interception, Ciotti picking off a pass on his own 29 and carrying back 48 yards to the SHS 22. first Downs Yards Rushing Passes como.

NAPA, Calif. (AP)-Arnold Palmer birdied six of the last seven holes Friday and swept into a two-stroke lead in the second round of the $150,000 Kaiser International Open Golf Tournament. The 43-year-old Palmer, a non-winner for 15 months, had a f ive-under-par 67 on the north course at the Silverado County Club and posted a 36-hole total of 133-11 under par. Canadian George Knudson, tied with Palmer for the lead when play started in the mild, sunny weather, slipped to a 69 and was alone in second at 135. Bud Allin moved into third place with his second con secutive 68. His 136 total was just three-shots off the pace. Defending champion Billy Casper bolted into contention with a 66 and was tied at 137 with Grier Jones, Jim Colbert, Jim Ferriell and Bobby Mitchell. Colbert matched Casper's 66 as the best round of the day, Ferriell had a 68, Mitchell a 69 and Jones a 70. Jack Nicklaus, the U.S. Open and Masters champion, winner of four other titles this season and the pre-tournament favorite to pull down the $30,000 first prize, managed only a 71 for 140.

He parred the next six in routine fashion, saved par with a good pitch after missing the green on the 10th then began his charge on the 12th hole. The aging charger, probably the most popular player the game has ever known, wedged to 10 feet and made the putt for his first birdie of the day. He rolled in a 20 foot putt on the next hole, made a routine par on the 14th then started a string of four consecutive birdiesa string that was halted only because he ran out of holes. Palmer stroked a three iron to within eight feet of the hole for a deuce on the 15th, wedged to 10 feet on the 15th and to within about eight feet on the 17th, then closed it out with an 18 foot putt on the final hole.

Scott Apthorp turned in the shutout, Southside's second victory of the season over the Blue Raiders. A ROUGH RIDER OTTAWA (AP) - The Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League have signed Art Laster, By ED WEAVER Ramich. That's a name that brings back fond memories' in Notre Dame football. While the names of Jim and Joel Ramich (two of ND's best running backs ever) were being reminisced about in the ND stands during Friday night's Homecoming game, Mike Ramich was leading a Crusader ground attack that ripped through the Horseheads defense and paced the rejuvenated Crusaders to a 28-0 waltz past the injury-riddled Blue Raiders. Ramich capped a 29-yard ND march following a fumble recovery with a five-yard touchdown slant off right tackle that with Jack Dunlavey's extra point pick gave the Crusaders a 7-0 lead late in the first period. Then, with 9:11 remaining in the first half, Ramich took a handoff from quarterback Mark Margeson on ND's draw play, darted through a huge hole, quickly cut to the outside and outraced a Horseheads defender for a 66-yard TD gallop. "it was the biggest hole I've ever seen," Ramich said later. "Just great blocking on the line." Except for three consecutive seven-yard bursts (one for a TD) late in last week's Hornell game, Ramich hadn't carried the ball since early in the year. "No, I haven't," said the modest senior, "but I don't care that much about carrying. I'll help the team anyway I can," the three-year defensive standout said. "Anyway, we have five good backs and , nobody's cocky we try to let everybody get their carries." Jim Pizzo and Mike D'Aloisio also got their carries for ND Friday night. Leading 14-0 at intermission, the Crusader defense quickly forced Horseheads to punt and the ND rushers went back to work. Pizzo bolted for eight yards, D'Alosio for six, and Pizzo again for nine and a first down. Then Ramich carried five straight times for 17 yards to the HHS three, where Pizzo culminated the 54-yard drive with a three-yard TD run and Dunlavey's kick made it 21-0. The fourth period, D'Aloisio raced 26 yards on a draw play while HHS linemen were still chasing the sharp-faking Margeson. Five plays later, Pizzo plunged two yards for a score and frosh Mike Kraft, the heir apparent to Dunlavey's place-kicking job, added the 28th point. Pizzo, ND's most consistent runner all season, hadn't scored prior to Friday but his 101 yards rushing raised his seasonal total to 476. Ramich accumulated 86 yards and D'Aloisio 65. " The Crusader defense, meanwhile superlative all year was in top form again, not allowing the Blue Raiders a sustained drive until late in the game. However, the Horseheads offense, repeatedly bitten by the injury bug, could offer only limited challenges. Kevin Smith and Peter Van Etten did return, but were obviously not at par, although Smith starred defensively. Smith had 28 yards, but didn't carfy at all in the second half and 46 of Van Etten's 57 yards were on one play. Brad Clark, the Blue Raiders' freshmen whiz at tackle, also did an inspring job for the HHS defenders, plugging holes and making ' numerous tackles. Notre Dame stiffened after the Blue Raiders began their only serious scoring bid in the fourth period. Offensively for ND, it was their top game in over two years, as the Crusaders amassed 252 yards in total offense. "I knew we'd be tough after the first win," said Ramich, a three-year co-captain. The Crusaders are now 3-3 and have vaulted into fourth place in the Sullivan Trail Con- Star-Gazette port S ELMIRA, N.Y.
