They tricked Walnut Ridge in the fading minutes 6-0. Luxora elosad its 1966 season with a stirring 33-19 triumph at Shawnee.. Gosnell put out a splendid effort at Lepanto and returned home with a satisfying 13-6 win. Thursday night, Wilson was walloped 25-0 at Marion. After the dramatics at Walnut Ridge, Cissell said: "Whew." He also said: "They . were :6ugh." • • • And: "We were flat." .Osceola had the rushing -advantage throughout the contest :ut couldn't quite deliver the big play, despite some effective running of the workhorse, Ronie (Mule) Bennett. . ... Once in the fourth quarter the Semiiioles completed a pass at the five but were penalized for having an illegal receiver down- field. "Things like that," the Osceola coach said. "Things that never happened to us before. But don't get me wrong. Walnut Ridge is' a tough- team. They have a poor record but thay have a good team." Soy with only two and a half minutes left, Osceola lined up in field goal position, Phil Morrow the kicker, Teddy Pruitt the holder. But it was a fake. .-.--•• * • •* - * Morrow threw the ball to Ronnie Curtwright at the 10 and from there he scored the district-winning touchdown. It was a good job by Curtwright as he had to break a tackle to bull his way into the end zone. Morrow's kick for the extra point went Wide. Incidentally, Morrow is a reliable placement hooter but attempted no field goals this year. Walnut Ridge did not threatened seriously, showing most of its muscle on defense. . "I could tell we were flat right away," the Oosceola coach said. "I could tell it before we got on the bus." . But they still bad enough sharpness to grab the cup on the same gridiron the junior Os- ceolans won their last week. How does it feel to win two championships in a row? Ask the man who knows. Howard Cissell said: "It feels.good." * * * Bob Harris's Luxora Panthers saved tlieir best game until last. Harris had no doubts abdut it: "It was the best game we played all year." Luxora jolted the Indians at Joiner with a three-TD explosion in the first quarter. Bill Welch's Indians didn't walk off, however. Early in the j third-quarter they were very' much in the game again 20-13. But Luxora was up and that meant for the Shawnees. Ronnie Hayes fired the first shot, . skipping 20 yards for a touchdown and adding the extra point by running. Bobby George was hot, too. He powered across for the next two TDs in the opening chapter, from the 15 and two, both scores topping sustained drives. Curt Harrington ran the extra point after th eseeond touchdown. With three minutes left in the half, Shawnee intercepted a pass at the Luxora 35, and just before the break drove the ball in for a 20-6 count at intermission. Shawnee had momentum and made it an interesting game with another TD early in the third quarter, 20-13. Shawnee's spirit was broke shortly after, when still one more drive was halted as Bobby George reached out for an in terception at the Luxora 40. * * » In no time at all then, the Lux- Armorel In Cage Split DYESS-Armorel High's tigers were decisibned in the final minutes here last night in basketball, 48-44 by the Dyess Eagles. The Armorel juniors won the opener in double bvertirjie 4036. Thursday night at home, Armorel won a pair, 62-36 in the senior scuffle, 52-31 in the junior opener. orans were crossing the Shawnee goal line once more, Bobby handling the registration from the 15. Harrington's extra point ran the tally to 27-13. In the f6urth quarter Hayes ended the Luxora scoring fbr the game and year when he traveled around end 13 yards. tough Lepanto Panthers in 1-A. Gosnell threatened to itofe in the first quarter but hid the push stopped at the one. The Bucs battled back, HOwiSver, drove 50 yards in the Second quarter and sent Craig Pierce across for the TD from the six. Lepanto latched on to * 6-6 tie with a 70-yard pass play before halftone. » « » Gosnell produced the wlnnlrig touchdown in the fourth quarter. With about four minutes left, they hustled up a sustaln-ed drive and Chuck Gentry cracked the line from the eight f6r the winning six-pointer. Pierce ran the point. Incidentally, in this drive, Gentry made a big contribution with a fancy 25-yard run. He was the leading rusher for th« winners, showing 97 yards. Fullback Eugene Lee rolled 76 yards and at his linebacker post racked 16 tackles. Tackle Jim Ressner showed 15 tackles as he seconds against Luxora reserves. * + * "We were up," Harris said. "We moved the ball better than we have all year." Luxora's final record in Harris's first year as head coach is 6-3-good for a tie for third in 3-B. "It was a great team effort," the leader said. "These are the best boys I ever worked with." * * * "Happy to win that one." So said J. 0.

And a spectator who only saw Doug Sanders play the 18th hole in the second nmnd — where he took four to get down from the edge like any 20 handicapper — wouldn't believe that Sanders had a Hire-stroke lead. But Sanders produced enough good shots to collect a second round 67 Friday and take the lead at 13 in the $57,000 tournament. Miller Barber, the partly Louisiana veteran whose swing and Ken Still the cheerful Tacoma, Wash., thin man, were sec iOnd with 136 totals. One stroke back at 137 were Al Besselink, who has adopted a new swing that resembles a striking cobra; Gay Brewer, who winds up like Don Drysdale; and .Hawiian Ted Makalena. Brewer is defending champion. 8 Beselink says he adopted his new swing complete with a 'new secret" he has just dis covered because he has to favor- a tenis elbow.. "I've got a new swing and a new philosophy of golf—at the age of 42 " he said. Bill Casper's puler which he chucked in the ocean during a practice round came through for him ad the wu..s. open champion recorder a 6 for a 138 and moved into contention. Asked how it felt to have a three stroke lead, Sanders said, 'I think the last time I was that far in front was at Pensacola, and I got disqualified for sign ing the wrong scorecard.' SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) Flanker Lance Alworth of the San Diego Chargers always has been considered about the best pas receiver- in the American Football League. He may also be the guttiest. Alworth revealed Thursday he played the.first half of the season with two broken hands. During this time, he caught 37 passes for 694 yards and six touchdowns, the highest number of catches in the AFL. * * * He kept secret the fact he had hairline fractures in each and because "the other team might try to hurt you or they might play a defense other than the one we hoped they would." Alworth was injured in the Aug. 20 exhibition game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but at that time the mishap was re- ported as only a sprained wrist, which he also sufered. Before the first game of the regular season, Alworth was unable to shake the hand of a writer at the Charger training camp. He asked sportswriters not to reveal his injuries. 'We'll see what kind of football player I am,' he said. Shawnee belted back with a 70-1 buckled down and showed tough yard pass play in the final 40 f0 ™- End Curt Barnett had 11 - '•'-•- tackles and guard Bob Reynolds, nn action for the first time, had nine. + * * Joe Lynch's wellreoaejied panto Panthers tried desperately to get back in the game after that but could cut no deeper than midfield. Then the Bucs happily squandered the remaining seconds. "Lepanto has a fine ball club," commented the Gosnell coach. "They really hit you. They hit us harder than anyone we played all year." Gosnell is 5-4 now, on the winning side again. Next week they have Walnut Ridge, Gosnell's last game of a bright season. Special!
