For the hosting South Houston Trojans, who fell to the Shippers 34-16 last year, their overall rating is how 4-1 and 1-1 in conference action. The 12-AAAA brawl was unfolded at the Pasadena High School Stadium before some 3,000 fans. While the Exporter offense continued to act like a Model T, sputter and stall, the "Big Hed" defense was as fired up as a bright new 1960 Thunderbird. •'•*•*••• The Shipper forward' wall ilayed the Trojans off their eet, allowing only tour first downs to the SH crew and Only 31 yards gained on the ground. v The deepest the Trojans got on the Ship defense all night, with the exception of their two touchdown : efforts, plus one, was the 3J. Both Trojan TD's were scored on passes, one good for. 44 yards in "the first half, while a 11 yard TD strike was notched in the third period. For Harden Cooper's Exporters, who got break after break, they moved-to the 18 12, 25 and 16 only to see drives bog down. • The Exporters lone score came on a nifty bit of running on a klckoff return on South Park's second TD. Halfback Cooper Ford took the ball on his 24, raced up the middle, cut to the left around the 50 and dashed all the way in a dazzling 76 yard touchdown scamper. Even In defeat the Exporters turned in a fiery display of grim determination, 5 at least on defense. ' Headed by Jack Pybus, Pat Patterson, Larry Masters, Bud Jackson, B u b b a Willenberg, Noel McAnulty, Forest Clark, Kenneth Bear, Sandy Rhodes, Don Hynds, Bob Tate, Windell Stinson and others the Ships gave up only one first down i . the first half arid that was due to a penalty. _ Tha Exporter . defense was brought out' In the number of punts SH had. They punted 10 times for a 3.1 average, while the Exporters punted fl ve times. .. :. The -game was a far cry. for an offensive struggle and it took close to two hours and 30 minutes to play. : .' i In a penalty roundup. South Houston drew the red flae 13 times for 111' yards, while Bra- zosport got ,six for 80 yards. Three players were escorted off the field, two from South Houston arid one from Brazos- port. • . • ; Time and time again fights almost broke out between the two 12-AAAA clubs. Brazospprt's real downfall came in the three passes -they had intercepted and the nine fumbles, they had. Of that nine fumbles, the Ships only, lost wo, but each time they fumbled they "either lost yardage or saw: It kill drives. ^ ^ itn 'toe quarterbacks and halfbacks throwing, and with nosuccess. tie Shippers went to the air 20 times and saw Only five hit their nSfc'S three get picked off.
