<f Wildcats on fhe rebound Friday with LaPorte ANGLETON — Itolwiindinu from aseason- openlnR 12-7 defeat, the Angleton Wildcats are now preparing for homo gamu of the season, taking aim at tho'orto BiilldoKs and tholr sncond rum-district game. The Wildcat's first homo apiHJaranco of thfi 1908 grid campaign will get undurwaywlllia 7;30 p.m. kick-off at AMIfloton High School Stadium. Friday night's gamn has also be-on designated "Parent's Night," an annual event sponsored by Urn AnitlRton Quarterback Club, Mothers and Inthur.i of AiiRleton football players will bo hunornd during simclnl pre-game ceremonies. Both Angleton and LaPortewlll be looking for their first victories of the season In Friday night's game. LaPorte took It on the chin from Class 4-A Clear Creek, 30-8, last week In their season-opener. Tho Bulldogs were prc-season picks for a third place rol« In District 12-AAA moving In behind Alvin and Dickinson. Along with the Uulldogs Friday night, coming to wildcat Stadium will be another In tho long list ol rivalries Angleton renews each year. Although the Bulldogs and Wildcats did not test strength In their 1907 campaigns, clashes between the tv.-o teams date back for many years. The Bulldogs have always been a tough opponent for the wildcats, and this year they will field a team bolstered by five offensive and six defensive holdovers from last season's 3-7 squad. Coach Johnson jiolnled rather emphatically to the sl/e advantage that LaPorte would enjoy over the Wildcats, stating "We really got manhandled by Dickinson. Our Boys were llterelly picked up and thrown around. We'ra going to be up against SOIDP more 200-pounders this week. "It looks like that will be the story all year long, so we may as well gel used to it." Running back Gary Garret, end Ell Carmack (195), tackle Randy Ellis (195) and middle guard Scott Malone are key performers for the Bulldogs. Garfett ripped tho field (or -I." yards and a six-pointer and added the two point convr-rsion to account for all of LaPorte's scoring against Clear Creok last week. In summing up last week's efforts, Coach Johnson cited costly mistakes on both the oilense atvl defense as a prime reason lor Angleton's loss to the Gators* LAST WEEK'S RESULTS Dickinson 12.
