2 D October 11, 1970 Lincoln Sunday Journal and Star Versatile NU Offense Adjusted to Powerful MU Pass Conk From Page ID yards on the ground. So tenacious were the Black Shirts that the Tigers didn't have a first down in the first 25 minutes of play. As expected, Missouri's frenzied pass rush played havoc with the Cornhusker aerial game. Nebraska managed just 71 yards through the air after having averaged over 180 in their first four games. But the Cornhuskers again showed they can do many things well while on the attack. With dual I-backs Jeff Kinney and Joe Orduna leading the thrust they hammered for 217 yards on the ground, 184 of them coming from the prolific pair. They showed an equally potent pair at quarterback with Van Brownson re-emerging as a major contributor to the offense and again displayed the breakaway abilities of Johnny Rodgers. Cornhusker coach Bob Devaney brought Brownson out of the bullpen in the relief of Tagge at the start of the second half. It was a day when no quarterback was going to be sensational, but Brownson had a little more success keeping the attack going than Tagge did after Jerry had directed an impressive opening touchdown drive. That opening march came after a heart-stopping opening series which saw Rogers fumble the opening kickoff at the 23 FOOTBALL City High Schools Southeast 21, Grandlsland6 State High Schools Odell 44, Lewiston 0 David City 43, Albion 7 Palmyra 28, Nehawka 8 Adams 34, Barneston 10 Neb.

It was the fifth victory of the season without a loss for NWU, but it took a blocked punt in the third period by linebacker Tom Kearns to set up the tally.

Hastings Rallies For 21-13 Win Spearfish, S. D. (AP)-Has-ings overcame a 13-6 halftime deficit Saturday night to nudge Black Hills State 21-13 in non-conference football. Bob Kohl scored on runs of 31 and 11 yards and Gary Filipi ran 41 yards for another Bronco score. A 20-yard pass from Mike Murphy to Mike Savoy and a three-yard run by Ralph Meyer built an early lead for the Yellow Jackets, who suffered their second straight setback after winning nine straight games. Phone 432-3388 Bank-Americard and Missouri's Jack Bastable barely miss a 41-yard field goal attempt. Missouri was offside on Nebraska's first play from the 20 and after that the Cornhuskers drove 75 yards in nine plays. Kinney carried it six straight times for the first 33 yards, then Tagge stunned the Tigers by handing off to Jerry List on a tight end reverse. List was almost stopped at the line of scrimmage, the Missouri 42, but the converted halfback showed he still knows something about running as he bounded away and bolted to the Missouri 15. Kinney rammed for three yards, then fielded a Tagge pass in the right flat for the touchdown with 8:32 left. The Cornhuskers were in a hole as the quarter ended because of a clip on Bill Kosch's punt return. Tagge went to the air from the 15 and his pitch into the right flat for Guy Ingles was stolen by Brinkley at the 22. Brin-kley was stopped just short of the goal, then Farmer sneaked across. Bastable converted to make it 7-7 with 14:50 left in the half. Tagge had trouble getting the attack going the rest of the half and a pair of incomplete passes in the last minute allowed Missouri time for another scoring threat. Jeff Hughes' punt from the Nebraska five carried to the Missouri 36, but Mike Fink carried it back to the Cornhusker 20. The Tigers had 24 seconds with which to Colleges has held opposing ground games to a net 54 yards per contest, allowed Huron only 53. The secondary stole four passes, bringing to 15 the number picked off this season. Junior Rick Roffers had three of the thefts. Wesleyan's rushing game was held to 112 yards, 82 of it by Mike Kemling in 22 carries. Middle Linebacker Joe Gleason blocked one punt, recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass.

Bennett, who pushed a power play goal past Omaha goalie Wayne Bell as the Blues took a 1- 0 first period advantage, got his other score midway through .the second period, dirving straight toward Peter McDuffe, the Knights' veteran goaltender, and slipping it in. The goal gave Kansas City a 2- 1 lead and another score, this one by Gordon Brooks, pushed it to 3-1 before Omaha could score again. The Knights, whose first tally came at the start of the second period when Tom Miller slapped a shot past Kansas City goalie Gary Edwards, managed to stay within one, 3-2, retaliating almost immediately. Morris Stefanfw took a feed from veteran Omaha defenseman Ab DeMarco with 19:33 gone in the second period and rammed it in for the Knights' second goal. Seconds later it appeared as if the Omaha club had tied it up when DeMarco slammed a slap shot at the net after the face off at center ice. The pick lodged in the net, appearing to be a score, but instead had stuck on the outside of the mesh. Kansas City upped its lead to 4-2 with an insurance goal late in the third period, but highly touted Omaha rookie Norm Gratton set up and fired from right in front of the Kansas City goal moments later to finish the scoring. The Knights tried to gain at least a tie after that when they pulled McDuffe in favor of a sixth attacker and took a two-man advantage on offense when KC goalie Michel Plasse was slapped with a two-minute penalty for slicing. Omaha, however, failed to score before tfme ran out. "I'm satisfied," said new Omaha coach Fred Shero who is returning to Omaha this season after a three-year absence. "I thought we outplayed them. Both teams played pretty good, but both were hurt by the officiating. They missed some pretty obvious calls." Shero said the shorter ice surface at Pershing which measures only 165 feet rather than the 200 at Ak-Sar-Ben, the Knights' home rink, made little difference in the game. "The ice. made no difference," Shero said, "except that we played by Olympic rules where you can pass way up to the opponents' blue line instead of only to the red line. That bothered them (the players) Just a little, that's all." iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimi How AP's I Top 20 Fared I S a 1. Ohio Stat (3-0) def. Michigan It., 2?-0. J.

On fourth and three with nine seconds remaining Bastable attempted a 31-yard field goal and this one went slightly wide to the right The Cornhuskers had to battle a stiff south wind in the third quarter .and managed to keep the Tigers at bay by recovering three fumbles. The last one was a big one which got Nebraska out of a deep hole. Hughes was forced to punt into the wind from his own six on fourth and 13 with a little over a minute left in the period. Fink had to move up to field the kick and mis-bandied it among a sea of red jerseys. Jeff Kinney, pounced on the fumble at the Nebraska 34. Nebraska, which had disastrous quarter-opening plays in the first and second periods, finally struck back with a big play of its own as the final period opened. , Orduna came in in relief of Kinney and the Cornhusker hammer turned into a sword as Joe plunged over left guard, cut back to the right and streaked 41 yards to the Missouri 15. Kinney returned to blast for three, three, six and two yards on consecutive carries and Brownson sneaked for the touchdown with 12:54 left. Rogers made it 14-7, but the defense had to deliver again to sew up the victory. Mauser took Rogers' topped kickoff at the 20 and bolted back to the Nebraska 49.

Rut ttia minor middle guard Ed Periard and linebacker Jerry Murtaugh at the 42. Moments later Murtaugh turned the ball over to the offense at the Missouri 26 with an interception of new quarterback Chuck Roper's first pass. : The Cornhuskers went to their power game and had a first and goal at the three, but Kinney fumbled as he crashed over the left side and Missouri recovered. . Three plays later the Tigers had their backs against the wall at their own one and Farmer was forced to hurry a kick. . t Up until then the Tigers had kept Rodgers in chock, but it's tough to hold him for a whole game. He proved it when he took the kick at the 46, took a couple of steps back to size up the blocking wall and zipped 48 yards for the back-breaking touchdown. It kept alive his string of scoring in every game and gave him his sixth touchdown of the season. The win over Missouri gave the Cornhuskers their first conference-opening victory in three years. Two years ago they lost to Kansas and last year they opened with a loss at Missouri. Since that time, however, they've remained unbeaten in 11 games. While Missouri suffered several severe injuries in the game, Nebraska came through with no one seriously hurt. the first quarter on an unsuccessful sustained march of 72 yards with the opening kickoff which was halted at the Grand Island one yard line. But at the outset of the second stanza coach Frank Solich's forces came up with the ball on a pass interception by Doug Deeer on their own 38, and scored four plays later. A five-yard penalty against Southeast was sandwiched between two incomplete passes. Then quarterback Don Osvog experts in preseason picks, raised their American Conference Eastern Division record to 3-1. The Jets, on the other hand, favored to win the division for the third straight year, dropped to 1-3. . Griese took Miami 82 yards the first tfme he got his hands on the ball with the help of a penalty that nullified an in-. terception. The big plays were a 40-yard toss to Warfield that put the ball on the Jets' 11, and then the scoring pass. In the final session, leading 10-6, Griese and Warfield teamed on a 29-yard pass play to the Jets' 27, then he hit Twilley on a key first down pass and finally for the score.

Thompson scampered down the sidelines, cut to the middle of the field, breaking two tackles enroute, as he went the 67 yards to paydirt. Momerts later Southeast tallied again. The ensuing kickoff was deep into Grand Island territory and three plays later the Islanders were forced to punt from their own 14. A rushed kick traveled only 13 yards out to the 27. Deeter ripped off six and seven yard runs. Thompson followed with a nine-yarder to the five from where Deeter plowed over for the'TD. Southeast pushed its advantage to 21-0 as a direct result of another Grand Island punt from exactly the same spot. Late in the third period a 20-yard effort got out to the Islanders 34-yard line where Mark Michel fielded the boot under a full head of steam and flashed through the GI eleven for the score. Grand Island, behind the strong running of George Kyros and Ron Loewenstein, who combined to give the Islanders an edge in the ground-gaining statistics, staged several futile drives before one finally paid off in the final frame. Loewenstein got the Islanders on the scoreboard, after one apparent TD was called back on a holding penalty, with a three-yard burst up the middle.
