Saturday, he found his place' in the sun by leading the West to a 17-13 triumph over the East in the annual .Shrine Game. j West Coach Eddie Crowder called Pastorini "one of the most remarkable players I've ever seen." The pro scouts among the 54,000 fans agreed. Pastorinii whose college campus is located .near. Stanford,- jwas voted the game's Most valuable Player. I Sandwiched in between cbl-j lege bowl games and pro championship contests, the East-West game could have Deen lost in the flurry of weekend football. Fans Get Money's Worth But an explosive opening kickoff runback ' and a . hair- raising finish gave the fans their money's worth. More importantly, the 46th annual charity game gave some needed funds to the Shrine Hospital for Crippled Children. : The West returned the opening kickoff on a 99-yafd reverse for the first score. Norman Thompson of Utah* took the kickoff on the one, ran 12 yards, then handed it off to Missouri's Mel Gray, who streaked down the sidelines the rest of the way. The East came roaring back with the tying touchdown, going 75 ' yards in 13 plays. Mike Adamale of Northwestern carried it over the final one yard for the score. The West regained the lead early in the second period when Pastorini booted a record- breaking 42-yard placement goal. _ • /" Pastorini Adds TD Pastorini added what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in the third period with a 45-yard scoring bomb to Gray. The Santa Clara product figured in all the West scoring, as he also booted two extra points. ; . J ' | . ; Even with Pastorim's heroics, the East wasn't finished late in the final period.

Pet each Baltimore player, puts them into the Super Bowl Jan. 17 against the Dallas'Cowboys at Miami. It's something the Colts didn't expect to happen, j Unitas completed only 11 of 29 passes for 245 yards, including the touchdown, compared to Blanda's 17 of 31 for 271 yards -and two touchdowns but Blanda was intercepted three'times and he .knew who won the battle. *'We lost to a better team," Blanda said. "You can't say enough about Johnny Unitas. He's still the best He was great, absolutely great.", Blanda,-43, who came off the bench to rescue five games in a row for the Raiders during the regular season, played all the way after quarterback Daryle Lamonica,' ; the . AFC passing leader; went out in the second quarter with a pulled muscle. Colts Shoot Ahead The Colts shot ahead, 10^0, on a 16-yard field goal by Jim O'Brien and Bulaich's 2-yaroV run before Blanda went to work. He kicked a,48-yard field goal jn the secpnd quarter, then tied the game early in • the third with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Fred Biletnikoff when defender Charlie Stiikes fell down. ' Unitas brought the Colts right back for O'Brien's second field goal, a 23-yarder, and Bulaich's second touchdown run, an 11- yarder, within five minutes to give them a 20-10 lead. It was then, with the Colts seriously .challenged for the first-.' time in. the game, that Unitas' passes were consistently on target.. . • He completed a 30-yarder and a 17-yarder to. Eddie Hihtdn on the drive leading to the field, goal, then hit Hintbn for 13 and Roy Jefferson for .11 and 13 yards before Bulaich's TD.. J Perkins Wraps it Up Blanda hit Warren Wells with a 15-ya'rd touchdown pass early in the final quarter but three plays later Unitas. dropped the bomb to Perkins to wrap it up. Unitas directed ah error-free offense. The Colts didn't turn the ball over, .and. the Raiders did, including.interceptions by Rick Volk and Ray May inside the Colts'' 10-yard line in the final seven minutes when Blanda was trying to catch up. Baltimore took a adyantage of a 23-yard punt by Mike Eischeid to score one field goal and a touchdown came after Geprge Atkinson fumbled away a punt and Sam Hayrilak recovered. Coach Don McCafferty gave the Colts two days off before they return to the practice field Wednesday. ' j By JOE SARGIS UPISports Writer SAN i FRANCISCO. (UPI)Some time today it will begin to . sink in. The| Dallas Cowboys really [have won a' championship and now are headed for the • Super 'Bowl. j . . . "It'sj-all so fantastic, so unbelievable,'"' said Cowboys' quarterback Craig 'Morton Sunday after he | had helped pilot Dallasjt6 a 17-10 victory over the San Francisco ' Forty Ninersj a victory j which capped .an: amazing comeback and put the Cowboys jintoj the Jan. 17 Super. Bowl opposite' the Baltimore Colts. j . It } Famed oddsmaker Jimmy "The - :| Greek" -Snyder has tabbed j the . j Baltimore-Dallas Super Bowl matchup as a^'pick 'em" affair, but from the way the Cowboys are playing of late (won seven in a- row), they should favored by. a. wide margin! :'|- , -They' played their "usual" .game against Sah Francisco Sunday^ run,-; run, run on offense, and shut the other guys off on defense.' j -Gain 214 Yards Running Rookie Tunning'j back Duane Thomas , and I his running ' companion-, , W a 11 Garrison; drove . the San Francisco defense .crazy with their alternate rushes' through liie line and sweeps around the right side.' V ' . Between .them they gained 214 yards running, Thomas picking up 143 in 27 carries and Garrison 71 in 17. That enabled the Cowboys to 1 play their balj- controi game'and they made it pay off, but it took interceptions by Lee .Roy Jordan and Mel Renfro to give them the breaks they needed. Thomas galloped 13 yards for Dallas' first touchdown after Jqrdan's . interception,. going through- and around the' San Francisco defense and breaking four tackles eny route. Renfro intercepted Brodie at the Dallas 19 on a "bomb"' attempt - to Gene Washington and rah it to the 38. Morton, bothered by a sore pitching elbow since mid-season, then' took the Cowboys 62 yards in eight plays, flipping five yards, to Garrison all alone in the end zone to cap the drive. That score stoodp,up, as"the margin of victory. .Finally Gives Up TD Dallas' famed "doomsday defense,", which held -San Francisco to 61 yards rushing, finally gave up a touchdown. Brodie got it by. throwing 26 yards to Dick Witcher late in the- third quarter after the Cowboys had taken a 17-3 lead. A 16-yard field goal by Bruce Gpssett and a 21-yarder by Mike Clark, both coming in the first half, accounted . for the game's ottfer points. , Brodie, the NFC's Player of the Yer, completed 19 of 40 passes for 246 yards, but the Dallas defenseshut him off whenever the Forty Niners got close. \ • ( "I don't think anyone is going to shut. Brodie off,"- said Landry. "Our plan was to keep him from burning us. We did it by keeping -him under pressure all the time. Morton hit on only seven of 22 passes for 101 yards but he said "the figure don't mean a thing."
