' n2 ' "nAvl 'Pi.- f 'ts UCorai Beats UMass :in T - i iUason Caught 1 UConn'i Rick Mason (22) picks op six yards before ; being brought down by Ron narris of UMass. (AP). (Continued from Pg. 1C) roil in the upset. Connecticut, which had not scored in the third period in any game this season, made its most memorable points of the year in the first 5:33 of that stanza Saturday. The rugged Thompson hit Bill Coleman with an explosive tackle and Jim Bree recovered the resultant fumble for UConn on the Mass. 24. Three plays later Sinay, who missed five previous tries this season, pumped his field goal just over the bar from 35 yards away and it was 9-3. "I went out there just knowing I could do it," revealed Sinay. "I've been practicing hard for two weeks ... I didn't get into the game last week. I knew it was over when I kicked it." Thompson intercepted a Mark Tripuka pass only two plays after the field goal and gave the UConns the ball again on the Massachusetts 33. Then quarterback-Bernie Palmer, who went all the way, lofted a pass toward Al MacLellan, the Huskies' most respected receiver, in the end zone and MacLellan soared high above defender Les Brown and ' clutched it for the touchdown. Sinay was perfect with the extra point. It was 10-9 and there it stayed. The drama of the ending began when UConn's John Lis got off his only poor punt of the day, giving UMass the ball on the Connecticut 40 with 3:57 to play. Tripuka, keeping the ball himself five times, and handing off to Torrance seven, ate up the time and had picked up three first downs by the time time was called with :05 to go. UMass had tried twice to score from the three through the middle, but had been stacked up both times by a Connecticut defense that was rock-hard. Then the field goal team came on the field with time enough left for one play. UMass coach Dick Mac-Pherson, sitting dejectedly with his shoes off in the locker room, did not'dispute the officials' call in words but obviously found it difficult to.aecept. "I guess they moved but never crossed the line of scrimmage," he said. "1 guess ... well ... they called it against us." Asked if he thought the films of the game would prove the call incorrect, MacPherson snapped, "It doesn't matter what the films say. They won." , Naviaux, who sat calmly accepting congratulations and answering questions, might have had the best answer, for what happened at the end. "Somebodv up there liked us today," he said. Rick Mason and Russ Clarke led the Connecticut rushing attack with 51 yards each and Palmer passed 18 : times and completed seven 5 for 104 yards and a TD.J MacLellan nabbed four for 69 yards. Three Mass. quarterbacks threw 15 times, and con pleted only two. Brian Mc- Nally started for the losers, was injured and Tripuka and Pete Colton did the engineering in the second half. The bruising Torrance was by far the game's top rusher with 149 yards in 27 attempts. UMass is now 4-3 overall, Connecticut 3-3. holler. 10-9 Connecticut Mauadiuscttt SCORING I f 10 -t J - MMt-Tarrance 2 run (M failed) $-F6 Sprout 4 tonn FQ Sinay 3S Conn MacLeMan 27 pass from Palmer (Sinay kick) A-16.900 CONN. 15 47-172 STATISTICS First downs Boshes-vard 104 - Passing Yards J 90 - Return yards 47 7-IM Passes 2-15-2 1- 32.1 Punts M7.d 2- 2 FumBlevkttt 4-3 3- 21 Penalties-yards 2- INDIVIDUAL LEADERS Rushina-Connectlcut.

( umbles Provide Scores Amherst scored first, with 12:30 left in the second period, after Mark Kotfila recovered a fumble by Wes-Jeyan's John Blessis. Driscoll took the Lord Jeffs 43 yards in seven plays, West Hartford's Bob O'Brien cutting over right tackle for the score from five yards out. Gary Strassenburg kicked the point. J Wesleyan tied it up later in the same period after Steve Imbriglia pounced on. a; fumble by Lord Jeff halfback Jeff Hogan at the Amherst 17. No. 2 quarterback Jim Carey, subbing for the injured Brad Vanacore, kept for six and then Dave Campbell carried twice, first to the three and then across J the goal line. Freshman Doug Marsh's wobbly placement was good to tie the score. ! The Cardinals had another opportunity at the end of the half, thanks to the defense, when Mike Celeste covered Stumble by Amherst's Brien at the Jeff 14. However, Joe Burns made a goal line interception to kill this threat. I- ' 'nr "i'ii iii I if ' ' ii The game-breaker came early in the third period after the Jeffs had staked out a first down on Wesleyan's 45. Driscoll started down the line, cut through tackle and then went against the defensive grain for a pretty touchdown run. Again, Strassenburg added the point. Wesleyan never got inside the Amherst 40 after that while Strassenburg added the final three points in the fourth period with a 29-yard field goal. Both defensive units, Amherst and Wesleyan, were the real stars of this 80th meeting on the gridiron. However, the Lord Jeffs bad two hard running backs in O'Brien and Hogan while Blessis was the lone stickout in the Cardinal backfield. Now 4-1 after an opening-game loss to SDringfield. Trinity Wins (Continued frem Pg. 1C) in the third period booted a 42-yard field goal to provide the winning margin. Middlebury had tied the score at 14-14 in the second period with a pair of touchdowns in four minutes. Quarterback Gary Bleakely Siss four yards to fullback en Chase for the first one and then ran 14-yards for the other Panther score. The kick failed on the first score, but Jack Leary ran for two on the second touchdown. Heffernan was the workhorse of the game, taking 190 yards for the Bantams on 29 carries. irtwry t 14 i-M Trm.--Metfernen 2 pas from Rose (maus , BleaWn ''l.iey 11 rvn (feary run) Trm.

It) was barely enough to offset a great aerial show by Glassboro quarterback Marty McLaughlin. McLaughlin, a six-foot, 185-pound senior, connected on 22 of 36 pass attempts, good for 325 yards and two TDs. McLaughlin also scored on a 10-yard run in the waning moments and was on the passing end of a pair of two-point conversions. "We're not going to play anybody who throws the ball like him." stated a relieved Loika. The Central mentor was also pleased with the defensive effort against the Profs' running back Robbie Reid, a transfer from Morgan State. Reid, who rushed for over 1,300 yards last season, was held to 62 yards on 19 carries and only one touchdown. The leading rusher in the fame was Central halfback lark St. Germain with 112 yards on 15 carries.

(UPI) -Halfback Rich Remondino scored on a 74-yard first period run and quarterback Paul Ryan tallied on a 14 yard sweep around the right side in the second period Saturday to lead Rhode Island to a 13-7 Yankee Conference victory over Boston University. Remondino, who had 140 yards in only 12 carries, bolted through the middle of the Terrier line with only 11:37 gone in the game to give Rhode Island a 6-0 lead. Wally Christensen's kick for the extra point was wide. Ryan's score came with 4:27 gone in the second period to cap a 68-yard, six-play march highlighted by Remondino's 44yard run on the first play of the drive. The Terriers, stopped by the Rhode Island defense after reaching the Ram five-yard line late in the first period, engineered an 80-yard march early in the fourth period for their lone touchdown. Bob Bateman Passes Vermont by Rochester BURLINGTON. Vt (AP) The University of Vermont rode the strong first-half passing arm of quarterback Bob Bateman to a 21-12 win over the University of Rochester Saturday. Bateman completed eight of 19 first half passes to set up all three Vermont touchdowns. His primary receiver was split end Bill Looker, who caught five passes for 142 yards and one touchdown in the first quarter. Looker was injured while punting on the first play of the second quarter. Looker suffered a bad sprain of his left ankle, and will be out of action indefinitely, a team spokesman said. iBnxsi-t.fi ri.tt.iav.ii' I K1 i I SUCn-tOCT-FSOaVCUCI CUX-tCSTBlASO-! 24.711 high school ball at South Catholic, had a pair of touchdowns on short runs. Schermerhorn got the Blue Devils on the board first in their initial-series when Bob Augustyn made a diving catch in the end zone on a 31-yard pass at the 3:58 mark. Glassboro came right back to tie it on a one-yard plunge by Reid and then St Germain got his first score on a 20-yard sweep of right end. Center Mike Walton of Bristol threw a big block on the play. Freshman Rex At-wood of Rockville rushed for the extra points and Central led, 15-7. McLaughlin got the Profs even again by throwing a 27-yard strike to Chuck Tayr lor and hitting Reid on the conversion. Glassboro took the lead after Terry Lasher recovered a fumbled punt on Central's 34. Two plays later Taylor caught a short pass, broke loose from five tacklers and scooted 34 yards for a 22-15 lead 1:36 into the second period. St. Germain ran six yards behind a good block by Campanello for another score but the kick was wide leaving the Blue . Devils trailing, 22-21. Glassboro picked up two more points after a 63-yard punt by Greg Francis put Central on its own two. A pitchout was fumbled out of the end zone for a Glassboro safety making the score 24-21. Central moved 80 yards in only six plays near the end of the first half with O'Brien going over from the two giving the home club a 28-24 lead. Glassboro's Dom An-tonini booted a 33-yard field goal with six seconds left to make it 28-27 at the half. After the Spittel-to-Gia-quinto dazzler at the start of the third period, both teams played a much tougher defense. Antonini connected on a 48-yard field goal with 14 seconds left in the period to make it 34-30. O'Brien made it 41-30 for Central with 10:26 remaining on a one-yard run and then the defense, took over.
