First, the Black Cats proved they are every bit as good as the experts say. You can look :for them to be one of the top powers in the 3-A position this fall |fired-up charges played th« Second they proved that the Black Cats down to the wir« ' can be *' before hopelessly losing any hahce of a comeback midway n the final period. The score was still only 14-7 oing into the final, six mliv Angleton Wildcats tourh team ; > season — certainly a lot better ball club than last night's score indicates. For it Is unlikely that Angleton will face another team this year that will match up to the powerful 3-A Bay City entry, ranked number four in the state.

Freeport will try to get on the winning trail by traveling ! to Texas City for a 6:30 p.m. : contest, while Angleton goes ' tfter victory number two in a 'i road date to Deer Park. This ,' ... game starts at 7:30. '• Three games were unfolded .'''• in the Junior High circles last I Thursday with Lake Jackson }' roiling over Palacios, 34-14, ; Angleton beating Clear Creek, 18-8, and Freeoort losing to Galveston, 16-14.

Other league openers on Sept. 24 will find Lake J-"*son going over to Sweenv r—1 Angle- ten playing host to ^'vin. In Lake Jason's victory over Pp'sclns. F'--ets McCain and Mike Tracv. a oair of speedy halfbacks, both accounted for two touchdpwns. McCain went 3R yards for one score and then took a oass from quarterback Royce Woods for 25 yards and another six points. Usihfi the "bin" olay, Tracy skinned 30 yards for a TD on a dive play and then used P reverse to scoot 40 yards and score. Woods triggered his second TD pass of the night to end Bo Burris. The pass and run covered some 40 yards. Freeport's scoring was done by Scotty Smith, who went 18 yards to climax a 60-yard-drive n the 2nd quarter. Kenneth Bargainer wrapped up n«otheir drive with a 12-yard 3ash. A tumble on the extra point attempt after the second score probably cost Freeport a tie.

The big difference was in passing, where Bay City com- rteted three of six attempts for 14 yards, while Angleton connected on three of nine tries 'or jast' 19 yards. Angleton was again plagued by - fumbles, losing the ball three .times. One of the fumbles came on the Bay City one- foot Hne, and halted a scorine drive that might have proved the spark the Wildcats needed Both teams lost a lot of yardage on penalties, but Bay City didn't fumble a single time.
