TWENTY-SIX EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1955 Dial PA-2-4606 for « WANT AD ,Ttk«fr Sets Down Football 'ReBeallion'AtFrostburg Locals Play Ball To Cop 13-6 Holiday Win By DALE SWECKER •.''.' Times Sports Writer .."A spirited LaSalle High School grid gang successfully touched ofi a "rebellion" yesterday in Frostburg and the outcome literally left the Mountaineers of Beall High : seeing '"Green." Keyed to the brink and eager for their first Turkey Day victory since 1949. the 'favored Mounties arid the'partisan crowd on hand had their aspirations sadly shattered by a Green Wave of undalating proportions from Cumberland that slapped and battered the shores of the Mountain City Bowl for a hard-fought 13-6 conquest. The Explorers of Coach Norm Geatz, conceding a decided \yeight advantage and assuming the underdog role, couldn't be convinced oi these hindering factors and went out early to proclaim their worth which until one week ago had been somewhat doubtful. LaSalle Storms To Score The Mountaineers took the opening kickoff from their own 20 and moved for a first down, but no further. After an exchange of punts, the Mounties again had pos session but could move the ball ho more than five yards and quarterback "Pete" Wilson was forced to boot on fourth down. Punting froni his own 10, the junior signal-caller ': got off. a beautiful 50-yard kick that rolled' dead on the LaSalle 40. An : Explorer. • clipping: penalty moved the 'skin back to the 35 from where the Fighting .Irish stormed, to its- first score. After; Mickey Bush picked up -five only , to.••; find Jim : : Struntz smeared for a five-yard loss on the the next play by "Squab" Martirano,,- quarterback -.Bill Buzzard rifled a nine-yard "pass, to end "Doc" Dougherty and Buzzard sneaked for the first down on next play. After another first down to the Beall 44, "Chazz" Passarell plowed the middle for four yards. Struntz Gets Point At .this stage anyone would have had ^a hard time Convincing Ex plorer fans that "one in the hand is worth two in the Bush" for their Mickey took a7;handoff from reserve quarterback Joe Cioni and scooted 40 yards around right end for the score without a Mountie even getting close enough to breathe hard on him. On the first try for the extra point, Beall was offside which moved the ball to the of the' cheers reverberated from the LaSalle FROSTBURG CROWD SCENE—There wasn't much ' joy on Beall High's side of the field. The stands were filled for Frostburg's tenth Thanksgiving Day, but HAPPY EXPLORER ROOTERSr-It isn't hard to tell the team for which these girls were rooting. LaSalle's ' football team had just picked up appreciable yardage when the cameraman snapped the above photo.

' On the ensuing-kickoff, the fired- up Mountaineers,ignited as quickly as touchwood and proceeded to burn down. field for their answer to Bush's. dart. Steady ground- caters, sparked by a 23-yard jaunt .by fullback Bob Wolford put the Frostburgers on the Explorer 20 wit first down. On third down, a passing interference .penalty against the-Irishi near the goal- line gave the spunky Mounties a first and goal. "Handy Andy" Felker squirted through the middle for six points but. on the'all-important . t;; for point after touchdown, 'Tele" - Wilson couldn't control a poor snap from center.and he was slammed to the 'terrain just shod of the double stripe, : Strtmtz and.

The being hauled down, by Wilson, the impact of the Mountaineers' wicked single-wing attack can be re fleeted in their losing no rushing yardage. Two intercepted passes by LaSalle also helped to break the •backs of the Mountain City boys •who didn't have one completion in seven tosses. The Irish clicked for four 'of' seven "aerials for 27 yards. Beall pounced on three of four LaSalle.fumbles but couldn't capitalize. Struntz was the game's biggest .ground gainer with 81 yards on 13 -carries for a 6.2 average. Bush was close behind with 74 yards in 11 tries and his 6.7 tab was the best of .the day. For. Beall, Felker was the workhorse with 15 totes for 42 yards for a 2.8 per. carry mark. Wolfq'rd carried 10 times for 55 yards ami a 5.5 average. The Explorers' "reBcallious 1 ' attitude carried them to their fourth straight win over their Turkey Day rivals and marked the eighth time in the 10-game scries that they have rung the "Beall." The Mountaineers have won .only once in the set and show a lie for the other game. Coach Ray Hull is still look; ing for his first win over the Explorers. LaSallc's final lab read peeling ofr near the left side markers and streaking 49 yards before 3-G-l while..Beall finished with a •• 3-7 mark., '...--. . - •' .-Pro-game. evidence gave every indication that the game would be a battle of "mud daubers" on a .clagiron but sunny skies, a brisk breeze and typical Frostburg Thanksgiving weather made playing conditions almost ideal. A good turnout of, near 3500 braved the nippy weather for~the game. Not to be outsifhg the Explorers , struck back with insurance for a rather precarious 7-6 lead. On the second play from scrimmage of ; the following set, Jim Strimtz, a .Froslburgcr, strutted his stuff by last down, enemy by last Beall defender, on the Mountie 21. A 12-yard burst by Tom Smith on third down gave the Explorers a first and goal from the three. Two cracks at the line by Struntz and an end ruii''by Smith netted the Irish nil -and, on Cioni crossed up the latcralling to Bush who threw a running pass to Struntz who was alone in the end zone. The attempted conversion for the EP was snowed under after the Explorers were penalized. Bcnll Misses Chance What could easily have been the turning point of the game occurred in the third period when Beall had possession on 'the 'LaSalle 47. In three plays, the Mountaineers gained' nine yards and on an attempted fourth-down thrust by Andy Felker for the one yard, the LaSalle forward wall piled him up for no gain and the Explorers took«.ovcr. In the same quarter, Mickv Bush had one of his punts partially blocked by Fred Jenkins 1 and (he boot went fora minussixyards.net. Both teams battled on near even terms in the scoreless second half with the deepest penetration being by Beall with less than four mi.n-j utcs left on the LaSalle 27. Three futile passes, went to the wind and the Explorers ran out the clock. Bill Buzzard of LaSalle and Jim Martirano of Beall were given the thumb by referee John Shelton in the first quarter for an exchange of blows. When Cioni, Buzzard's replacement, was forced from the tjame in the second, period on a jarring lackle by Kolkcy, Van Par-! sons, a sophomore halfback, came; in to direct the Irish's T-a(tack for! the remainder of the game.
