Saturday afternoon West Scranton at Bethlehem, Dun-more at Central, Old Forge at Hazleton, Technical at Clarks Summit-Abington, Duryea at Taylor, Tunkhannock at West Pittston, Avoca at Lackawanna Trail and St. Michaels at Pittston St. Johns. Several Surprises Virtually every game last Saturday produced a surprise. Topping these was Kingston Catholics 12-8 victory over West Scranton. Virtually every one locally had expected West to win and many of the Wyoming Valley experts also had favored the Invaders. But the Queens-men of Coach Bernie Popson remained unbeaten by coming up with a top-notch defensive effort in the second half. KC is 7-0-1 and West is 6-2. Lackawanna Trail shocked Clarks Summit-Abington, 14-6, scoring both of its touchdowns in the first quarter and holding the Comets scoreless until the fourth. It was the biggest prestige-booster yet for the new Factoryville school, which boasts a season record of 34. Summit is 3-5. Carbondale put the slug on Archbald, 13-6, another result which occasioned mild surprise. It was the final game of the season for the Pioneers, who lost their first seven games, but their last two. Archbald (1-7-1) tried to match Carbon-dales ground, attack but was outgained by a ratio of almost 4 to 1. . Olyphant made Moosic scram-JJe or, f victory. Although the Red Wings (6-1) held a wide .edge in first downs and yards gamed rushing, Olyphant (3-5) managed to contain every Moosic drive except the 40-y.ard push In the first quarter which bagged the touchdown., Bears Come from Behind Dunmore raced to an 18-0 lead in the first, quarter against Blakely, then ran out of gas and watched the stubborn Bears hack away until a 56-yard push In the fourth quarter produced a touchdown and a 20-18 win. The Bucks (4-2-1) made a dramatic, last-minute bid to pull it out by working to Blakelys even late in the game, only to be stopped inches short of a first down. Blakely (8-1) earned a statistical standoff. Hard-running Joe Cawley Iievdh5,ee. .touchdowns to lead South Catholic to a 24-13 victory over West Pittston. It was Souths fourth win against four eat and gave West Pittston a 2-6 record. Souths running game was unusually sharp and its defensive line also performed well. Exeter earned a 0-0 tie with Wyoming; Larksfille beat Ply-mouth, frO; Lake-Lehman routed Edwardsville, 33-7, as Joe Lo-pasky scored five touchdowns and, an extra point; Jenkins Township fell before Nescopeck, 264), and Wilkes-Barre Meyers remained undefeated as it romped over Luzerne, 46-0. I a game yesterday at The Eastern Conference Northern and Southern Divisions have new leaders today but Kingston Catholic and Blakely continue to lead the Lackawanna and Suburban Conferences, respectively. West Scranton, which has led the ECND since late September, fell to second place in spite of its victory over Coal Township last week. The fact that Coal has a poor record and that several teams that West has beaten will not play until tonight combined to send Wests rating plummeting .062 points to .438. This enabled Central (.542) to slip ahead of the Invaders, although the Golden Eagles stay there is expected to be brief. In the ECSD, Mount Carmel regained first place as Miners-ville slipped to second. But the Miners, like West, could regain the lead tonight if they defeat Ashland. Kingston Catholic, while retaining the LC lead, could look over its shoulder today and see a new pursuer. Blakely bounded from fifth last week to second by beating Dunmore and is only .Q15 behind the Queens-men. Tunkhannock is second and Moosic is third in the SC, which has been dominated by Blaknly for most of the season. eastern conference Northern Division Two Unbeaten Central West Scranton Old Forge Blakely Dunmore Lackawanna Trail Jessup Tunkhannock Olyphant Tech Duryea Archbald C.

Juniata racked Drexel, 47-0, Saturday to boost its string to 27 games without a defeat. Only a tie last year mars the recent record of the Little Indians who next week close out their season against Albright. Carnegie Tech made jt seven in a row with the help of two blocked kicks in a 20-16 victory over Washington and Lee. The Engineers try to windup un-scatched next Saturday against always tough Westminster. West Chester and Penn State were tumbled from the ranks of the perfect record teams over tlie weekend. West Chester was shocked by underdog Bloomsburg's two socond half touchdowns, 13-10, thus parting with a 15 game winning streak. Ironically, Bloomsburg was th last teachers college team to defeat West Chester before the winning streak started. West Chester's bowl end Tech-"'art College Conference championship hopes were virtually shattared in the defeat. Penn State lost little prestige in a 20-18 loss to undefeated, untied Syracuse, the Easts No. 1 team and perhaps tops in the nation. If State can get by Holy Cross next week and then Pitt, a bowl bid seems certain for the Nittany Lions. Penn Pacing Ivy Penn took undisputed possession of the Ivy League lead coming from 0-12 to beat Yale, 28-12. The victory assured the Quakers of their first winning season in seven years under Steve Sebo. Pitt upended Boston College, 22-14, with the help of a 16 point performance by Fred Cox, ft sophomore. Villanova surprised by holding Army to only two TDs in a 14-0 defeat. Elsewhere, Waynesburg earned its first victory of the season, 27-0 over Definance. Lincoln also left the ranks of the victory less with a 167 triumph, over St Pauls. W. A J. absorbed the worst defeat of the year for a state team, 90-0 at the hands of Marietta. Temple went on its winless way, bowing, 62-0, to unbeaten, untied Delaware. Clarion whipped Cheyney, 40-6, with Bill, Jackson scoring 4 touchdowns; Grove City took Bethany, 23-6, on three TDs by Tom LaMotta; John DArrigo scored a pair of TDs and set a new California Teachers season scoring record of 55 points as Cal beat Edmboro, 41-0.

(JF) Football coaches dont like them so close like Syracuses squeak over Penn State but Ben Schwartzwalder think the 20-18 victory at University Park, Pa., Saturday might have been a godsend for his undefeated Orangemen. A big victory over previously unbeaten Penn State could possibly have spelled trouble for Syracuse in the three regular-season games left. Coach Schwartzwalder said after the triumph. This might have been a godsend," he explained. The boys might have been getting to the point where it was hard to tell them that things might go wrong. Syracuses next foe is Colgate, which broke i 12-game losing streak by downing Bucknell, 1613. The traditional game will be played Saturday in Syracuse. On the eve of the Syracuse-Penn State game, Schwartzwalder said hed be happy to settle for a 1-point victory. His forecast of the outcome was close.

The victory, coupled with Princetons 14-0 loss to Harvard disintegrated a triple tie for first place. The Quakers have two games left, against Columbia on Saturday in New York, and on Thanksgiving Day against traditional foe Cornell in Philadelphias Franklin Field. Cornell is the one they fear for the traditional struggle is not one that is easily tabbed by a form chart Dartmouth is Penns nearest rival. The Indians, after their 22-0 victory over Columbia in the rain and mud of Baker Field in New York, have a 4-1-1 Ivy mark compared to Penns 61. The Indians take on Cornell this Saturday, then wind up with Princeton at the latters Palmer Stadium the following week. This still gives Penn the -19 Game Sfalisiics MAZZUCCAE End O. Seweek, JUta.
