J Offense Sputtered j But the game's first 30 minutes; held little pleasure and much agony • for the Paps as their offense spm- | i ereci and their defense collapsed i ,it crucial moments. In dropping their third game in j four starts this year, the Paps gave up a touchdown in the game's first >eries of runnning plays as Jackson i inarched 58 yards in five plays for ' a score. The P«,ps, were in trouble after l the fourth play of ihe contest when j Mike Armstrong of Jackson slanted off tackle and rambled 44 yards; beJure being hauled down from be- ! hind on the Paps' one-yard line. Sam Matthew? sneaked into pay i din on the next play, j Biytheville had the ball for just i three running plays before Charles ! Wat son fumbled and Jackson re- !

Puliey then punted to keep the Paps out of further trouble. Two consecutive penalties cost liie Cubs 20 yards and they had jnst returned the ball to midfield when the half ended. Jay Williams recovered a Blytheville' fumble, giving Jackson a rtrsi down on the Pups' 20 as the lasi Quarter opened.
