TEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., ' MONDAY,. OCTOBElt 17. 1955 , Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Take* Upsets Topple Four From Top Ten Bill Hahn is hoping that the decisive 23-7 victory scored by his Port:-IUU High football team over previously unbeaten, untied and un- scored-on Handley Saturday at Winchester will put the Sentinels In a^good frame of mind for the bigi-battle here Friday against Hagerstown. ""A letdown afler our win of Saturday could prove dlsat- tr*i» in (lie Hagerstown Kgfjhe." the F° rl Hill mentor declared this morning. Hahn had nothing but praise for the play of his teani at Winchester The"'Sentinels trailed 7-3 at half time, but came back to crack the garni! wide open with three touch downs in the last two periods. A pleasant surprise was the play of the Fort Hill line. The Sentine forwards were outweighed, Hand ley's" line averaging 201 pounds but'fiianaged to tear holes in the Judges' defense for their backs It would be unfair, Hahn said, to single out anyone for particular pralsj. "This was a team vie lorjf.1' the Red Raider mentor as serial. "We didn't have a singlr plater who turned in a sub-pa: performance." The turning point of the game, as Hahn saw it, came early in the third quarter. Fort Hill kicked off, held the Judges, Ififli shook Cl«rence "Pooch" Lewis loose on a 70-yard punl return for a touchdown. Byron Valentine enabled "Pooch" to go all the way by throwing a key block. That TD marked the first tirm Haifdley's goal line had been cross ed, although earlier in the game Jim Crawford accounted for th first three points against Handley for the '65 season with a field goa from a difficult angle 19 yards out Apparently Fort ' Hill's touch down inspired the Sentinels, boll defensively and offensively, as they bottled up the Judges' attack from then on and scored twice more themselves to turn what had been a close game into a "mild rout." Fort Hill had been well scouted by Handley, and Hunter Maddex head coach of the Judges, told Hahn after the game that the Sen tinels had shown tremendous im provement. Hahn himself, although thoroughly pleased with the outcome', .wouldn't say. It . wif ' Fort Hill's best game'of toe season. "Our second half was excellent, but we. made some mistakes In the first two periods," (he Sentinel mentor declared. Against LaSallc, a game Fort Hill won by a lopsided 43-0 margin, the Sentinels were extremely .«lcrl, Hnhn pointed out. At any rate, it was a great vie lory and could easily serve as a tonic for the Sentinels in Friday's upcoming game. The local sta dium should be filled to capacity for that one. * 'Safely First' From a standpoint of scholastii football teams in the area, thi: past weekend was one of "safety first." There wasn't a single salely recorded in the first five weeks of the campaign, hot this past Friday found no less liian three occurring on as many fronts. The first at the Stadium cam in Keyser's 29-0 conquest o LaSalle. A bad pass from cente sailed over Mickey Bush's hea< and all the way out of the en zone. Bush recovered and kickcc but the punt was blocked. Th safety, however, had taken plac as soon as the ball went out th back of the end zone. At Frostburg. Beall scored two-pointer against Romney in th fourth quarter. Hoy Miner, Beall' 230-pound tackle, hit the Pioneer: Chuck Dusic behind the goal. And in the second period of a Potomac Valley Conference game, Moorcficld safeticd against Franklin when Rue! Martin tackled Richard Eye in the end zone. Bobby Cavanaugh, oldest offici in the area, who worked in tl Keyscr-LaSalle game, said 1 can't recall of that many safctii being scored in the area on on day.

The Big Ten axiom that any am can lick any other in the nfcrence on any given Saturday early caught up with Hie Wolver- es but they managed to sneak st winless Northwestern 14 to 2, nd capture every first-place halt of the International News Scree panel of experts. Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Wis- msin, Texas Christian and Wash' gton were ¥ not so fortunate. All ere defeated, and with the cx- eption of Notre Dame, were drop- ed from the grid ratings.

Northwestern might have stagoc ic upset of the day but for a fatal ase of fumblitis.

Northwestern outplayed Michi- an most of the second half and eld the Wolves to five first downs nd 146 yards rushing all day. The trapped wingback Tonj ranoff in the end zone for a safc- y in the second quarter and al- lost repeated the trick in the lird. . . ; First Irish Setback The big attraction, however, was ichigan State's victory over pre- ously unbeaten, untied and un- ored upon Notre Dame before ,007 ringsidcrs at East Lansing nd a nationwide television audi- nce. The loss was (he first for vored Irish in 12 games, dating ack to Iheir 27-to-14 setback ainst Purdue last October.
