The BlythevlHe team, crippled by Injuries, did not figure to be the take-charge team In pr«-game TRalph Suyder, 120-pound halfback playing in the absence of injured Tommy Mcslcy, must have appeared as a giant to Jackson. Snyder, brilliant on both offense and defense, ripped off nice gains and had 70 yards net for the night. But H was the defensive effort of. the maroon line which refused to yield a needed foot to, Jackson in the final tv:o minutes of plaj which spelled the difference. The Chicks dreiv a 15-yard penalty in tho?e final minutes and Jackson recovered a fumble on the Blvtheville 20. Three tries into the line movec the ball within one foot of a firs down. The Bears called on their 200 I pound fullback, Bobby Joe Mlntev I but the middle of the Dlythevill • line threw him back for no gain |and the Chicks regained possession Runs Clock Out Blytheville held its one-point lea" I at that time and Bob Childress ra: I the clock out by running a long I count quarterback sneak fire times Blytheville hejd a 7-6 halftiin • lead, but the margin soon fade •when BlytheviUe's short second • half kickoff went out I Chick 41.

Sipes' attempted I conversion was wide and the Bears I looked like they were off and run| rung. But Blytheville was yet to un| leash its fanciest offensive show | of the season. The Chicks got back in the ball 1 game with one minute gone in the I first quarter. 1 Bennie Hays, who looked good al! night, cut off tackle and carried ] to the Jackson 21.

On a sneak, Childress went all the way to the two and Hays, go| ing wide behind beautiful blocking, j cut back into the end zone. Fisher's kick was good and I Blytheville took a 7-6 lead. The Chicks missed a cha nee to f ore after Snyder picked up the isuing short kick off on the - oHCkson 35. 1 Fisher hit Holland on a fourth down Statue of Liberty pass for first down on the Jackson 15. But Jackson took over on downs after Holland's pass on an enrf- nronnd was too far for Gentry who was wide open in the end zone. Hodge recovered another Jr.ckson fumble on the Jackson 30 after the Chick ends crashed through. But halftlrne came just as Snyder threw a cere en pass to Child re ss who got to the Jackson 20, toked good. Donald Gentry and enny Hays both ran hard and ell, turning in their lop perform- ces of the young season. Childress was a bull on the quar- erback sneaks. Hft ran n of them 48 y*uds, but was more Im- ressive than the statistics .show ecause he always managed to get ne yardage" when It was needed. His snenk for the Chicks' last uchclusvn was made in spite of he fact that Jackson sought to ilug the middle of the line with in extra man.
