.October*. 1177 Tbel 1.HA-1T Trojans, Rain Join Forces To Dampen Homecoming By DAVE LONG Sports Editor Logansporl ballled New Castle and Ihc elements here Friday night and lost out In both efforts. The Berries dropped a surprising 18-14 game to the Mark Surface coached Trojans In a kew North Central Conference affair. The game was played under simply miserable weather conditions which literally took Logansport's game away from It. Another major factor in the loss were 12 penalties which cost the Berries 150 yards for •the largest total assessed against the Berries in a number of years. One of those penalties, late in the fourth period, stopped what appeared to be a determined Logan effort at the victory. The call, which was-for too many players on the field, stopped a Berry drive as New Castle was punting the ball away. The punt wag to the Logan 45, but Jeff Flowers had made a good runback of it with plenty of time. The 15-yard penalty gave the ball back to the Trojans and they took it deeply into Logan territory before giving It up with minutes ten in the game, The final Berry drive started on the Logan 47-yard-llne but ended when Eric Sweet was sacked for a 13-yard loss on a fourth down situation. New Castle let the clock run out. It wasn't a fit night for anything let alone a homecoming celebration. The weather evened up New Castle's ground game and Logan's passing attack. "New Castle was ready mentally and physically for the game," head coach Don Baldinl said after the contest. "We were ready physically but not mentilly. We were thinking too much about beating Surface and not enough,about beating his team." Logansport got it going early and it appeared on its way to a rout before the penalties started evening things out. Jeff Flowers took a punt'on the Logan 25 and raced 75 yard* to paydirt with 7:35 left In the quarter New Castle's ground game, however, dominated the play in the period. The Berries were up 7-0 after Steve Harris' kick, but Logan ended the period with only two yards from scrimmage in two plays. It had one pass for two yards also. New Castle scored on the first play in the second quarter when quarterback Kevin Stephens, who wasn't even listed on the New Castle roster, passed to end John Boyd for a 49 yard paly which featured a straight up shot from scrimmage. Surface's .two-point conversion style carried over and they did not score a conversion in three two-point attempts.

The Trojans intercepted an Eric Sweet pass a little later In the period and three plays later scored on a six yard run by sophomore Jay Ogle. There was 8:56 left on the clock and the Trojans went up 12-7. The final New Castle touchdown of the game came In the third period on another Stephen* to Boyd pan* from five yards away. There was 4:09 left in the period. Logansport's offense pepped up in the fourth period and was headed for what appeared to be one of its patented come from behind In the last few minutes victory. The 15-yard penalty at the punt, however, took what little wind was left and buried it. New Castle's defense was devastating. Logansport was caught nine times behind the line of scrimmage In 21 plays on the ground. The Berries ended with only 78 yards on the ground and SB In Colorado Spills Cowboys BOULDER, Colo. (UPI) .

Wayne Williams scored first on a 1- yard run, and the Bulldogs recovered an onslde kick to set up the second marker, in which Williams scored from the five. Drake rallied to within 23-20 when Craig Pershall crashed over from the one. But Indiana State's defense stiffened and the Bulldogs could not penetrate into Sycamore territory again.

There were 17 lead changes among four drivers but Waltrip, who started on the pole, led four times for 64 laps before moving out front for good. As Waltrip passed the start- finish line late In the race, he put his hand out the window and. punched It toward the sky, Indicating tie thought the race should be halted because of rain, Allison was on his bumper and almost took the lead on the final lap, but Waltrip held on. Allison said he saw Waltrip pointing to the flagman 15 laps before the race was stopped. "I tried to get around him one time, but he cut me off," Allison said. "The track was getting slick outside the grove and we had a bunch of laps left for me to be taking a chance like that, If It had been on the last lap, well, I would have taken the chance, gambled or whatever." Cowboys to 157 yards, opened the scoring with less than five minutes gone on Knapple's oneyard rollout. The score, which climaxed a 90-yard drive in 10 plays, was set up by a 45- yard breakaway run by fallback Howard Ballage.

VIRGINIA WATER, England (UPI) - Australian Graham Marsh crushed American Ray Floyd 5 and 3 Saturday in a relentless march to his first-ever World Match play golf title and .the $52,500 first prize.

Not even rain-lashed fairways and waterlogged greens could break the magic as Marsh carded eight birdies over the 33 holes he needed for victory and the biggest pay check of his career. "I am delighted," said Marsh, who was losing finalist in 1973 when he went down at the 40th hold against Gary Player. "After that defeat by Gary It has been one of my great ambitions to go back and have another crack at the title here. Next to the Open It Is probably the most important tournament over here. "I didn't think it would be sensational- golf today. When • the weather turns sour this course is no pushover," said Marsh, who Is 19th on the U.S. money list with $107,765. Floyd fought to discover the touch which pushed him to a 2 and 1 victory over Spain's Seve Ballesteros Friday, but was never ahead, .dropping one . behind at the fourth when Marsh eagled. and falling two adrift at the fifth in the morning when he three-putted from 45 feet. "He was very persistent., When he needed a putt, he made tt. I wasn't playing well at all and I couldn't^jnuster up a putt," said Floyd, who said he was never upset by the police escort which followed him .round the course after an anonymous telephone threat Friday. Marsh was in devastating form with his putter and it was only rare mistakes on the homeward nine, where he bogeyed the 13th and drove into the trees at the 16th which kept hit halfway lead to three holes. Ballesteros defeated Irwln 3 and 2 In the match for third place. Ballesteros earned $20,400 for his win and Irwln received $15,300.
