STEELERS SURPRISE 5QUDERTQN 14-0 ON SECOND HALF SPURT , Indians Dominate First Half Play. Consolidates Deliver In Final Periods For Convincing Win. Fargo, Hosgood Score Old Probabilities and the Farmer's Almanac predicted clear weather for Saturday afternoon. In spite of this the authorities called off the Souderton-Sell-Perk High School football game and transferred it to the Twin Town field on Monday night. It rained sentimental tears all over the Consolidated bailiwick after the fracas for the Blue and Gray emerged triumphant for the first time this year 14-0. ; Coach Hen Gutekunst's Steelers were like the old oaken bucket in the first half as the Indians ran and pranced to a convincing 9-2 margin in the first down depart ment. But the former Mule Mauler instilled a fighting spirit into his boys at half time and they plugged the leaks with repellant putty that withstood the Indian thrusts and went on to squirt to victory. It was a erreat nicrht for the win thirsty kids, players, fans, and well-wishers for to rise from a sure defeat in one short fifteen minute intermission bespeaks spirit which is capable of any ac-1 extra point on a running play to complishment. With the win goesjmake the final 14-0. the Old brown Jug and lor tne: nell-l'erk souderton fourth consecutive year the prized possession rests in the trophy case at the Two-Town school.

A pass play irom Jim Hosgood to Ed Schoch tallied the extra point to make the count 7-0. In the fourth period Coach Hen sent caustic words in "You were given a touchdown, -now go out and earn one for yourself." Taking him at his word, the Steelers did just that. With the ball on the Kouderton 40 after a kicking duel between Jim Hosgood and Joe Day, the Twin Towners started to move. Hosgood and Fargo alternated carrying the ball with a surprising end around play to Jack Wuerstle netting eighteen yards, making it first and ten on the Red skin 8. Hosgood faded to pass and then decided to run. When he reached the five yard line three Souderton defenders confronted him. Unswervingly, Hosgood leap ed through the ozone and the 'Skins parted as Jim jumped into pay dirt.

MORE ID'S FOR AMBLER Ambler continued to blaze the trail in Bux-Mont Conference play with a 380 victory over Upper Moreland. Again it was the amaz ing legging or tan Mundell, one of the greatest runners to ever tread on a Bux-Mont gridiron, that led the parade. Mundell scored five times from the field, converted one extra point, to set two records. His thirty one points in a game eclipsed"' the former mark held jointly by himself and Dick Al bright of Lansdale. It also shot his season s total to l3o witn no end in sight. The Most Terrible of all the ler- rific Trojans ran for 285 yards on Friday night and in his tenure at the Shingletown school had rolled to 1565 yards. These choice bits of statistical knowledge flows from the fluent pen of Ted Williams, a staunch Trojan admirer. Jn other games . uuaxenown eased out Doylestown 13-12 to im prove an already impressive record. This marks the third time this vear that the Panthers have won via an extra point Porky McNair, their talented toeman, has been the marrin of victory thnce.

LANSDALE HAWKS PICE BIG 6 TO FINAL WEEK While their younger community brethren: were rolling up a first wictory of the 1947. campaign on the Consolidated gridiron, the Sell- ereville-iPerkasie Greenjackets e- leased their latent offensive might to upset the quakertown. Hurricanes 14-13 in a whizbang exhibition at the Flatland manicured pastures on Monday night. Coach lies Zetty derived a dual pleasure from the victory for other than being the first triumph, the win. was registered over his home town cohorts and in sport defeating a friend carries' a satisfying quality. Paradoxically the loss was doubly bitter to Clyde iSmolf and his once supercharged eleven, until they entered the Greenjacket service station for a winterization. (For other than losing to a home town product in Zetty, the loss dropped the Hurricane into a precariously dangerous position in regards to attaining a playoff berth. In the nin and tack tussle the Wave struck first and maintained the advantage. In the second fex-iod after a. scoreless fifteen min utes, the Greenies struck; Stymied i . . i tt .i n on a marcn io irre xiurncwie yard Vine, where a fumble gave the oval to tne vjuaicers, tne ureenies took possession after the kick to the 34. On two running plays the Green had marched to the 24 and a first down. Then in a dazzling display of running and marvelous downfield blocking, Bobby Gehman went the route, ihe Ursinus Uol-lege student scored standing up amid the bawling eruptions from the touchdown hungry IWave adherents. Clarence Parks converted. Quakertown retaliated with pass play that carried 60 yards for a touchdown. Don Shelly tossed to Brother Bert who went for tnirt; yards on too of the 20 yard aeria! John' iSmoli kicked wide and the Jackets enjoyed a 7-6 halftime bulge. ' In the third period the alert and what this writer terma one of the finest forward walls in the Big Six, Conference-rfully realizing the record really tore the : Quaker , Seven Men of Serve asunder and made them just that, a porous defense. Billy Simons started Xhe ., touchdown march. He intercepted an aerial on the Quaker 31. Kour plays ' later Clarence Parks attempted a field 'goal but the ball was partiauy oiocKeo anu mo Quakers took over. On first down John Smoll tried to kick but omnipresent t Jimmy. Shelly barreled through to block the second kick and Clarence .rams piayeu tne part of the opportunist in the dra-ma, first scene. Parks scooped up the ball and ambled 30 yards for a TD. Scene Two in "The Dewinding. nf the Hurricane" saw Clever Clar- : ence ram the ball squarely through the uprights and run the total to 14-. Following the kkkoir in-, the third period the Quakers were not to Be denied ana again uon oneny took to the ozone, this time Johnny Marzec tucking in the pigskin for a touchdown on 29 yard pass play.

But in the Dast week-end, the two front runners had anything but an easy time of the wins.
