Wildcats 7 ?st half gains winners circle, 20-8 By BOB WHITE ANGLETON (Wildcat Stadium) -- Playing before a near capacity crowd here Friday night, the Angleton Wildcats Woke the ribbon on home play, bringing their season record to .800 with an easy 20-8 win over La Forte's Bulldogs. Easy wasn't quite the word >r it. In fact, If the Wildcats had not "slacked" up the second half of the gtme, La Forte's battered eleven wouldn't have brightened the Scoreboard at all. The Wildcats played a beautiful first half - scoring 20 points and holding the Bulldogs outside the 20 for 24 fast minutes. , Then came the long, penalty- plagued second half. This may be the appropriate time to try ( «nd t repeat try) to explain one penalty some Angleton fans may have a question about. About halfway into the fourth quarter, La Forte's Lee Byars Intercepted a pass thrown by Angleton's David White on the Wildcat 30-yard line, and skipped the distance for the Bulldog's only score of the night. Just after Byars crossed the magic line for a score one of his teammates, a little overzealous, clipped an Angleton player. After a moments huddle, a referee threw up his hands, proclaiming the score was to be counted. After qunrterback Thomas Gordon added two points for La Porte's final score of the night, the team \vi\s penalized 15 yards before kicking off to the Wildcats. The best this writer can figure Is that since the clipping didn't occur until after the touchdown had been made, the rules call for honoring the score. Regardless, that's how La Porte put their score on the board - a good Interception almost fouled up by a pointless clipping. The Wildcats put their first score on the board Just five plays Into the game. Leroy Macldox started things off right for Angleton return- Ing the opening klckoff seven yards from the 27 to tho 3'1. From there, quarterback Billy Adams pulled off a double reverse with the aid of Nenl Jasper and Ricky Crowoll, with Crowell tripping around left end for 31 yards to the La 1'ortc 35, and the first of three first downs In five plays. The second first down was picked up by Jasper on nsweer around right end tolhe 10 van line.

Greg Fox's PAT kick was wide to the right which left the score at 6-0 Sweeny's favor, which It was at the half.
