SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Mobile Snaps Chicks' Vktory String 30-7 Murphy too Much ..-ri rrinynTirni] For Erratic Tribe Continued from Page 1 < 89 yards and the Chick's only tally in the first half. The third Murphy tally came with 3-.2S showing on the time clock, and Blytheville's six points were tacked on the scoreboard just 2 seconds later. Bdgmon took the high arching boot on hi* own 11, went straight up the middle briefly, found a hole, and cut to the left side-lines, once near the side stripe, he was in command of the situation. Bdgmon turned on the gas and was going away from all his pur- sueri when he crossed into six- point territory. In the first half. Murphy ground out HI yards rushing to the Chicks 1* and gathered in another 54 yards in' the air while BIytheville was zeroed on that count. In first downs, It was Murphy nine to BIytheville s two both of which came in one series of downs by the Chicks. The Panthers clicked on three of six passes in the first two periods while the Chicks were unsuccessful in all three of their overhead attempts. The Chicks lost the pigskin once via the fumble route and were forced to punt on four occas- sions. Murphy was guilty of no bobble* Kid had to resort to the punt- inj route only twice. The third period was scoreless. The Chicks had possession of the plgikin only twice In the period, and the second time was in the dying minutes of the chwkker. Murphy used up most of the time march- Ing from their own 13 to the BIy- theville five with short, crunching ground playi. The drive terminated on an unsuccessful note just before the period's end when Sinclair raced eight yards to the Chicks flv« where he fumbled when hit and the pigskin was.,recovered by Blytheville's plvotman, Jimmy Gee. Gee was downed after returning the bobble nine yards to the maroons' 14. Controlled Fourth Again in the fourth period, Murphy controlled the ball most of the way and exploded for two more slx- poinWs in this final stanza. Tht first of the pair came at the tnd of a drive that began on the Murphy 12 when the Panthers were penalized back to that point after taking In a Fisher 43-yard punt Hubbard hit the line twice for eight yards and Jackson added 10 more and a first down on the blue and gold's 30. A penalty set Murphy back flve yards but after Hubbard got three of it back, the Panthers lipped 71 yards on a neatly-executed pitch-out for the payoff six point*. The play began with Jackson running to his right on the spllt-T's "keep or pitch-out" option. Seemingly tackled by a. horde of red- shirts, Jackson tossed a long pitchout to back Bobby Martin, and the latter sped wide around the end to go all the way across the double atripe. The big clock showed 7:02 •till left in the ball game. A short oil-sides kick after the TO was gobbled up by the Panthers on the ensuing kickoff to set the Murphians in position to speedily score again—then- fifth and final time of the night. J.cknon Again Albert Tully, an end, gathered in the kickoff on the BIytheville 42_. After Sinclair got one, Jackson sped around end for 20, and Hubbard picked up six more. Jackson then crashed over center for 12 yards to the Chicks' five, carrying a pair of red-shirted warriors with him the last three yards. Jackson carried the pigskin for three plays, and crossed the twin-stripe on the third from one yard out on a sneak. That brought the count to 30-7 and that's what it remained after the Chicks were unable to push goalward following the kickoff. The Chicks, demoralized by now, began fumbling and going backwards, ami were trying for a fourth and 16 when they executed a pass play on their own 35. with a half-minute left in the contest. The play was good for nine yards when Fisher heaved to Jones. The Panthers took over on downs and the clock ran out a couple of plays later. BIytheville was unable to pick up a single first down in the second half, added a net of only one yard tc their ground total, but did pid: up 54 with "3 for 3" in the air- lanes. Murphy meanwhile, garnered 105 yards more along the ground paths, but didn't attempt but one overhead, and that was unsuccessful.

(Courier News Photo) El Dorado, NLR Win; Zebras Lose By The TOM DYGARD Associated Tres» El Dorado and North Little Rock football teams toda> have another victory hanging from their belts, and botl games included interesting — if not important — develop ments in the Big Seven. In a non-conference game, El Dorado defeated District 4AA Smackover 19-2 last night. The win ing — if not Important — developments in the Big Seven. In a non-conference game. El Dorado defeatede District 4AA imackover 10-2 last night. The win enables the Wildcats to draw a bead on Little Rock with an undefeated record, six straight victories this year, three of them In the Big Seven. Little Rock, twice the loser to out-of-state teams, got Its third straight Big Seven victory at Texarkana, whipping the Razorbacks 2S-7 Thursday night. Tried for Lead Thus, El Dorado and Little Rock :e even-stcven with 3-0 conference records. Their battle at Ei Dorado next Friday night probably will decide the winner of the Big Seven. North Little Rock mauled inept Hot Springs 53-6 in a rout that surprised no one. That is. It surprised no one who figured Hot Springs was bound by the law of averages to score eventually anyway. A 13-yard scoring run by fullback John Ketchum in the dying minutes of the game gave the Trojans their first touchdown of the year. El Dorado played for the second straight week with a shuffled back- ield lineup. Fullback Lamar Drummond moved to quarterback to spell injured Charles Norton. Sub- titute Harold Ainsworth took over fullback. Nevertheless, the Wildcats ate up yardage with Bobby Bates and James Mooty leading the way. The ralloping all-state halfbacks did all ^e El Dorado scoring. Bates scored two touchdowns and one extra point and Mooty scored one touchdown. North Little Rock, one of El Dorado's earlier victims, thing but shy about scoring on winless Hot Springs. Nobody this year has been timid about pummcling the Trojans, but sophomore Charles Eagle added Insult to injury In the fourth quarter by adding the seventh and eighth touchdowns after the Wildcat bench had been cleared. Hot Springs played most of the game without its fine quarterback John Messer. He suffered a shoui dor injury In the first quarter Doctors fenr his collarbone may b broken. Other Big Seven teams had a hard time. The Fort Smith Griz zlies had to throw up several bar rlcades in the shadow of the goa to stave off persistent District Springdnle. Finally, the Grizzlle won 21-7. Pine Bluff Clabbered Pine Bluff caught both barrel from a Memphis Central team loaded with pony backs and sharp-passing quarterback. Th score was 62-26 after the Zebra finished hopelessly watching th running of C. D. Kilpotrlck an the passing of David Robertson. In District 1AA undefeated Vu Buren nosed Fayetteville 16-14. Th Pointers found the winning margi when a Fayetteville pass fron center bounded out of the end zon for an automatic touchback a two points. A burly Van Buren line did good job of bottling up Donni Stone, Fayettevlile's yardage-pr ducing tailback.

Anderson broke straight down lie middle behind excellent block- \g and outran the Shawnee sec- ndary for the game's lone score. Shawnee threatened several times ut couldn't quite make It. Score Nullified On the lost ploy of the first half, lowever, Terry plunged over Lepano's goal from the two yard line or what would have been the tying ouchdown but the officials ruled hat he crossed the chalk mark aft- r the whistle had blown stoppln ils forward motion and did not al- ow the score. In the second half, the Indians generated what appeared to be couple of touchdown drives but both were stopped by fumbles. Indians Flayed Well But in defeat the Indians looked jood. Terry, Mnhoney, ami Stacks licked up some nice yardage for lie Indians, and the entire line )layed a good defensive game. Also looking good were ends LaForge and Dean who covered punts like a blanket. Good blocking, hard .tackling and ,he running of Klrby Anderson and VIcCrery paced Lepunto to the victory. Slvawnc* Pos.
