OCTOBER 8. 1!)S5 Chickasaws Slide by Whitehaven 12-0 Tribe Gets Third Victory of Season In Spiritless Tilt WHITEHAVEN, Tcnn. — Blytheville's Chickasaws capitalized on an 85-yard punt return and a bounding fumble to get a lackadaisical 12-0 victory over Whitehaven, Tenn., here last night. Freddy Aber.s ran through a cordon of Chicka^aw blockers in the first period for an 85-yard touchdown run and Fred Hodge picked a loosed Whitehaven fumble on the Tigers' 35 and fan over for a TD in the second for the only score in the game. It was Blytheville's third vie tori' against, one loss for the season fullback counter on a fourth down gamble backfired when Abbott didn't get the onll and Whitehaven took over on the Blyiheville 40. Whitehaven drove to the Blytheville 29 in three plays. Then Davis got one and Pri chard tried the keeper but Hall broke it up, and Abbott broke Prichard in two with a terrific tackle when the smooth Following, is a play by play AC- j quarterback tried to run from after count of the game: Blytheville won the toss and elected to receive but had the ball only momentarily as Privett returned the kickoff nicely from the 20 to the 47 but fumbled and Whiiehaven recovered on the Blytheville 47. The Tigers' speedy halfback Eldred zipped for eight yards, Davis got two and a first and Baker carried five to the 29 before being stopped by Ratliff. Hall broke up a pitchout play for being unable to pass. It was fourth and six for the Tigers on the 25 and another pass failed as Hodge put the pressure on Phchard. Chicks Can't Move Blytheville took over its own '-'5 and moved to the 40 with Akers and Abbott carrying as the quarter ended. The Chicks couldn't get to midfield however and Abbott, had to kick from his own 45. The punt. a five yard loss, a pass failed and j bounced out of bounds on the White- Whitehavcn kicked.

The Tigers couldn't move and Eldred kicked to Coulter on the 30 and the Tribe almost repeated its earlier touchdown return as the Tigel's again were fooled by the crisscross. , Tin's time Coalter handed off to Akers who found his corridor again open down the left side, thanks particularly to a teeth-jarring block by Hall, and scooted 50 yards to the Whitehaven 20. He just, couldni' get by the last man. The Chicks appeared to be ofl rolled dead on the Blytheville two. Out of Tiie Hole Abbott powered 11 yards on the Tribe's first scrimmage play on a reverse. Akers was stopped .but then passed sharply to Privett who picked up a key block from McGuire and got 20 yards to a first down on the 33. The Chicks were out of the hole then, but couldn't move as Akers tried a spinner for one, had a pass to Hodge batted down and was just short of a first down after getting seven on a fake kick. Abbott punted to the Whitehaven 26 and Eldred on the return was smeared on the 29 by three or four Chicks led by Hall. Whitehaven picked up two quick first downs as Davis scooted 10 yards and Priclmrd got 11 on a keeper. They were in Blytheville territory on the 48, but the drive stalled as Ratliff stopped Davis and Hall racked up Prichard and Eldred for losses. TD Scamiior Eldred, kicking from his own 47, punted to Akers on the Blytheville 15. The little scatback crisscrossed with Privet!, faked the ball to him and scampered down i,he left sidelines as Home beautiful blocking formed a neat corridor for him. R was quickly apparent he would go all the way, and he did, lor 85 yards and a touchdown. The kick by Akers was wide and the Chicks had a fi-0 lead with a minute k'ft in the first quarter. Abbott's kickoff was returned to the 30 and the Timers quickly drove into Chick territory on a 20-yard pass play from Eldred to Crag. As the second quarter opened Davis drove to u first down on the Blytheville 38 with a four yard pickup.
