PACE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWI FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1954 Paps Whip Maiden Juniors by 27-6 Count Win Comes Without Single First Down By CHARLES PENN JR. Courier Newi Special Writer Blytheville's Papooses proved one old football axiom but disproved another last night as they hung up their third win of the season with a 27-6 victory over Maiden, Mo., at Haley Field. The axiom they proved was that score of 14-0. The Paps ran from scrimmage touchdowns, not first downs, win ball games. The Paps went entirely through the ball game, scoring three touchdowns, without picking up i single first down. And the one they disproved was that the team that controls the ball, usually wins the game. but nine plays throughout the entire ball game. They scored all their touchdowns on long runs and long pass plays. 71-Yarder On the opening play Maiden's Dick Campbell kicked to Jirnmie Pulley who took on the 20 and advanced to the 29. Moore took the hand-oft and went through the middle all the way for a 71 yard run and a TD. On a quarterback sneak. Coalter went over for the extra point. Nelson kicked to Maiden's 30 and when they returned to their 35, the Paps refused an offside penalty. Maiden began advancing on the ground to chalk up a flrst down. Alter a ground gain of seven Maiden suffered a five-yard offside penalty offset by a play ver center. An incomplete pass followed by amis' tackling Patterson for, a 15- yard loss forced the boys from Missouri to punt to Coalter who ran the pigskin back to the 6. Blytheville fumbled on the 4 and Maiden began another drive on the ground for another first down. A second Incomplete Maiden pass forced them to kick. Collier Moves Coalter took on the 48 and with excellent blocking was downed on the 20. Coleman's elbows were a little too long and Blytheville suf- lered its first unnecessary roughness penalty of 15 yards. On the next play Coalter took the ball for a spectacular 74 yard Blithe-way run, and on a quarterback sneak added the extra point for a Caruthersville To Play Dexter Tigers Shift Lineup For Tonight's Tilt With Bearcats By SONNY SANDERS CARUTHERSVILLE — The Tigers are slated to play host to Dexter's Bearcats tonight at the local high school field. Klckoff time will be 7:30 p.m. John McGulre, Caruthersville's head coach, has indicated that several players be in different positions at tonight's game. Among those are Dick McGill and York Hughes. McGill, who has been playing fullback this season, will be at left guard. Hughes will take over the fullback position. He hasn't se much action this year due to thigh that was injured in the season's opener with Portageville. Sadlin's ground kick was taken on the Maiden 38 and advanced for another first down for the boys from Missouri. After successive gains by the visitors the Paps held tor downs on the 22. The Coaltcr-Moore team took over for a pass that sent Moore all the way, and another quarterback sneak by Coalter stood the score at 21 to 0 In favor of the home team. Fumble Hurts On another ground kick, Blytheville recovared on the Maiden 49 only to fumble on their own 4B where Maiden took over. Maiden began another ground attack and steadily gained lor two first downs when the half ended with Maiden on the Blytheville 38. S(»re at half-time, 21-0. II football were only played halves, the second half could, be called a "tie game." The Paps scored 6, and Maiden got 6. Nelson kicked to the Maiden 30 and GlUis on a perlect tackle downed the ball carrier on Maiden's 30. McMillan on a spinner went for eight yards, and it looked like Maiden had the second half well in hand when Nelson threw Patterson for a 5 yard loss. Kenneth Crawford from Missouri countered for a first down on his own 48, followed by three plays sparked by McMillan and Campbell to give Maiden another flrst. Still on the ground, the Maiden boys went over guard, over tackle, and on an end run had another first down, which was proceeded i>y a Blytheville unnecessary roughness penalty that resulted in a first down. Four first downs for Maiden in the third quarter and Blytheville had not had possession of the ball made it look bad for the home team. Visitors Score Crawford went through the line for thr« and on the next play a fake pus took the visitors over for their first score, The extra point was no good. Harris' kiclc to the Paps' 30 was returned to the 40 followed by a five yard gain over center. Coalter took Oillls as hU. partner. GUlis accepted the pass the hard way and racked up a Blytheville touchdown 60 yards from line of scrimmage, The Paps were unable to make the extra point. ; Sandlin made another ground, kick to the 49 and Maiden started! gaining on the ground again—over tackle and through the line for a first down on which Dickie Campbell was hurt but he snapped back quickly int othe game, never leav- ng the field during the time out., Crawford on a fake pass picked | up 9 for the visitors and the nextj play was over for another Missouri | first down. The Blytheville defense tightened up and Maiden lost the ball on downs on the Paps' 22. After a loss of one yard on a quarterback sneak and a gain over center for five. Coach Fisher sent in his second team, A fumble was recovered and Bly- thevUle chose to punt. Patterson rrmde a ground gain of seven yards on the last play of the game. Unusual Prom a. statistical standpoint It was an unusual game. The Paps without a single first down defeated a team by a score of 27 to 6, and Blytheville ran only nine plays from scrimmage. Maiden was much better on plain hard ground-play football — they seemed to be able to puncture the Pap line at any point and at their will for gains that were just not great enough, but could do nothing in the air. It took the Paps' flrst string until the lust few minutes of play to hold the victory at 27 to 6, with every Blytheville touchdown gained on long runs or passes.

Maryland vs. UCLA Tonight Starts Heavy College Action But Notre Dame-Purdue Clash Tomorrow Is the Top Contest »y ED WILKS Associated Freu SporU Writer Maryland ind UCLA, both ranked among the nation's top ten, open a full weekend of intersectional tests tonight in Los Angeles, but the game that really excites the imagination of college football fans is scheduled in the shadow of the golden dome at South Bend, Ind., tomorrow. Tint's where Notre Dime, itill in the process of proving the ability of young Terry Brennan as head coach, lines up against Purdue, team seldom mentioned among the nation's best, but always "up" for the Irish. It was on a bright October afternoon just four years ago that the Boilermakers crushed Notre Dame's proud 39-game unbeaten string—a performance that marks them for special attention by Brennan, who made an impressive entrance to big time coaching with a 21-0 victory over Texas last week. That opening success made Notre Dame the No. 1 choice in this week's Associated Press poll, supporting their pre-season selection as the nation's finest. While the clash between Notre Dame and Purdue, a winner to a breeze against Missouri last week, waits for the klckoff, the weekend action gets under way in a big way with tonight's game between fourth-ranked UCLA and sixth- ranked Maryland. Terps Drop Two Notches The Terps, dropped two notches in this week's rating after an idle weekend, were easy winners over Kentucky in their .opener. The Uclans, defending champs of the Pacific Coast Conference, have scored 99 points in two starts, defeating San Diego Naval Training Center and Kansas. That's the only game matching teams listed in the top ten, but except for Oklahoma, rated No. 2, all of the other leaders are scheduled. Two other top games tonight moved Baylor to Miami (Fla.) university and Wichita to Drake. On tomorrow's schedule, Iowa, ranked No. 4 on the basis of its 14-10 victory over Michigan State last Saturday, slips away from Big 10 conference action to play what should be a breather against Momana, but Michigan State continues its tough opening schedule against Wisconsin, the No team, at East Lansing In "must" game for both Big 10 hopefuls. Surprising Duke, rated seventh after shutting out Penn and scoring 52 points. Is at home to Tennessee, and Mississippi, No. 8, >lays at Villvanoa. Southern California, No. 9, mixed it up with Northwestern at Evanston, 111., in another Intersectional match, while Penn State, an unexpected top ten member by virtue of its upset victory over Illinois, relaxes at Syracuse.
