COURIER :N«W§ SATURDAY, lEPTKUBIR M, IMt Chicks Collar Poplar Bluff Mules 26-12; Wilson Romps Over Luxora 49-6 Moslepen Pass" First Real Test Gome Prove* Battle Of Offensive Power; Lute* Lead* Scoring POPLAR BLUFF, Mo., Sept. 23. —••Striking three ;times on the ground and once through the air, Blytheville •High School's hopped - up Chickasaws saddled the Mules of Poplar Bluff High 26-12 b«fore H capacity crowd of an estimated 2,000 at the high school stadium here last night. For the Chicks It was their third win In as many starts this 'season and it was an Important victory • for It was the first real test for Coach Russ Mosley's inso squad. The Chicks built up a two touchdown lead In the first half and then ,hung on during the last two stanzas, protect ing their margin with another counter In the fourth quarter. The Mules scored (heir touchdown in the second and fourth periods.. The game was a battle of offenses with the Chicks winning out. Their pott'er was too much for the •hortietowners and they beat the Mules at their own game, passing. With halfback Mel Hay doing the firing the Chicks rolled up a total 171 yards through passing with one Hay's aerials traveling 85 yards and striking pay dirt. Lutes Leads Scoring Co-Captain Charley (RufO Lutes led the chicks' scoring with a pair of six pointers and the other two were picked up by end'Ted Vance and' Co - Captain .Robert Reid. Guard Leroy." Crilifr kicked the other two points. Vance, who was one of the main cogs In (he Chicks' Offensive machine In the first two games this season, got (he Tribe - off on the right foot In the- first quarter by .racing six yards on an end around play for the first touchdown, The < play climaxed the chicks' first , sustained drive of the night, a 56- yarder that started back on the :Poplar Bluff 44-with the recovery ef : a fumble. .But the Mules countered quickly and got right tack in the game with "their-first touchdown in the early minutes of the second period. , The Mules started their drive to pay, dirt with Montroe Holland's kickofl after touchdown, marching 62 yards unchecked. Coach Dutch r Wyatt loosed a pair of fancy running ball luggers, fullback Jim Dwells in'd halfback: 1 Roy'.'Tibbs, to *park his combined split and winged T machine. ' • Wells Gei» .First Tit W«)ls, a low slung youngster v.'ith 'piston-like ICRS, accounted for the first TD almost single handedly. He led the Mules' opening drive by •hammering'away at (he Chicks line for two and three yards at a whack finally going over from a yard out after quarterback -Larry Wright, s> • up the score at the Blytheville 30 wllh 13-yard aerial to end N. S. Sechrest. That was the first pass completion : of the night and it set off the Chicks' volley. After Sechrest missed his kick, for extra point, to Rive, the Tribe a 7-6 lend Hay and .quarterback Dick Reid limbered their arms at the ends 'and the haltback. •Reid hit Vance with a 10-yard quickie and then Hay flung a 23- yarder which Lutes dived for and came : up with on a beautiful shoc- Btring catch at the Mutes' 17. Lutes and Reid hammered at the line twice for 12 more yards to move to the Poplar Blutf five and Lutes stepped off the remaining five by circling end. The Mules tried the aerial roi^e again after Tibbs shook loose over.31 yards o! broken field to the Blytheville 34. Wright threw one that was short of the mark and then tried another but Lutes intercepted at the 14 to stop the drive. Hay-lo-Lulrs Toss Scores Hay gambled with a pass at his own 14, spotted Lutes in the open at ralrifield and fired. Lutes got he- hind the halfback at the Poplar Bluff 40, grabbed (he pass on I he .dead rim and streaked into the ^ Snd zone untouched as the gun 1 'founded ending the first hall. Att~,Jer two perfect ones, Criner's kick _-for extra point wns low and the "Chicks took their hauthne rest leading 20-6. With the opening of the second half the Chicks began another goalward march but a penalty cut " •—Courier News Photo Aridljij: strength to the Chicks' backlliOd this fall are the Paps' ''touchdown twins" of last year, Johnny O'Brien (left) and Doiiald Gentry. Both.boys are light but speedy and will see a lot of service this year as hnltback relief. Caruthersville Tigers Rally to Blank Hayti Indians 27-0 CARUTHERSVILLE, Sept. 23.—After being outplayed during the first two 'quarters, Caruthersville's Tigers came roaring back In the fina two periods to blank the Ilayll Indians 27-0 at Hayti :last night. + It wiis.'lhe second victory of (lie the line to Blythcvillc's 12.- Wells' then cracked tackle for five and Tibbs picked up five to thg one and Wells plunged over. .. ' Chicks Come RlehJ Buck But the Chicks came right back. With Mel Hay leading the way they moved the kickoff from their own 36 to the Poplar Bluff 30. UiUa circled end (or eight and Hay skirted the other flank for 11.; Hay moved to the one-yard line on n'lO yard sprint around end and fullback Robert Reid cracked over from there. That finished the scoring and the game as only one play was run after the following kickoff. Blytheville held the edge on Hie breaks of the game and took a belter advantage of the breaks they got That was the big difference between victory ami defeat.. However those * breaks came only through hustle and wide awake playing. To pick out a single star of the game would be next to impossible. The Chicks' big line played hard although at times • it was unnble to cope with the Mules off tackle slants and quick opening plays. Montroe Holland played a bang up game as linebacker and the two ends, Vance and Mack Hay played well on both offense and defense.
