San Diego won the toss and super quarterback Dennis Shaw w l i i p p . e d his troops 67 yards in seven plays for a touchdown, the score coming on Shaw's 14- yard pass to Tim Delaney. A mixup on the ensuing kickoff caused 49er Bobby Green to fumble and the Aztecs set up shop on the 40er 20. Another Long Beach City alum, John Kafka gained five yards before Shaw wliipped a 15-yard pass to the leaping Delaney and when Al Limahelu " added his second conversion the Aztecs were breezing, 14-0. From that point, however, until halftime, the 49ers were in complete charge, offsetting Shaw's one-yard scoring nui with four scores by tailback Leon Burns and one by split end Billy Parks. That left it .12-21, 49ers, at halftime and Cal'State should have started for home. Guessing that Long Beach would play conservative football in the'final hah", as the 49ers have shown a preference for doing all season, San Diego's defense overwhelmed Cal State in (be second half. San Diego offered a classic example of its poise while working toward the win. Cal State did an effective job of taking away the pass and Shaw showed his class by having his club get the yardage on the ground. The Aztecs cut the edge - to 32-27 early in the fourth period w h e n fullback George Brown culminated a 14-play, 97-yard drive with a nine-yard run. San Diego cut the deficit even more with 8:17 remaining when Lon Woocl- ard caught 49er quarterback Shawn McKinney in the end zone for a safety and then San Diego went 5G yards in 12 plays for the winning touchdown after Cal State's free kick. Shaw threw only once on the final drive, for 12 yards to Delaney. Although it had a bad time of it in those two four- minute periods, Cal State scared the daylights out of the Aztecs the rest of the game. The first lime they got the ball, the 49ers went 79 yards in 12 plays and when Burns scored from the two it was 14-6. Jeff Severson, who intercepted two Shaw passes to run his season total to an A'CAA record-tying 15, set up Cal State's second score with liis first steal. The 49ers went 48 yards in six plays with Burns getting his 25th TD of the year from the seven. San Diego ran only three plays and had to punt and State zipped 57 yards in six plays to go ahead, 18-14, on a fantastic catch of a 25- yard McKinney pass by all- America Billy Parks, play- nig in his first game since early October. Burns set things up with a 25-yard run. The 49ers ran it to 25-14 minutes later when Pete Taculog forced Pifer to fumble and Rich Pelligrin recovered on the Aztec 19. Burns roared around left end behind blocks from Scott Childress and Jeff Riggen for the touchdown on Cal State's first play.

"But their coach called me and told me he couldn't visit me because they had lo confine their interests to the larger towns. "But probably the biggest thing was that Army brought me up for a visit and Navy didn't." Moore, whose '10 carries set an Army record, said he was "higher than I've ever been before for a game. I didn't do anything special to get ready. Navy was enough to get me high." Army steam-rollered its way for 449 yards on the ground, mostly from a power-I formation, with Moore scoring twice. In scoring its most decisive victory over Navy since the 38-0 route of 1949, A r m y completed its season with a 4-5-1 record. Navy finished with one win in 10 games, its worst season since the 1948 team failed lo win in nine games. Despite the poor records of the two teams, the usual 102.000 fans packed massive John F.

"They really threw us off the first half with llieir three-man rush: we didn't know what to do. "But coach Coryell got us together at halftime and told us our mistakes and it was a different ball game. "Who handles their defense?" asked Kafka, who Pifer calls the best clutch player we have."
