Tucker, Boyd Are Linemen of Week Co-winners of the local Lineman of the Week award were made for a second straight time following the Pirates' 27-12 victory over Connersville Friday night. Bill Tucker, 175-pound junior linebacker, was named for the second consecutive week arid Steve Boyd, a 195-pound sophomore tackle, is the other co-recipient. They will share wearing of the Lineman of the Week belt sponsored by the Grdensburg Jaycees. Besides turning in a stellar performance backing up the line, Tucker, who plays fullback on offense, set up and scored two touchdowfls in the final quarter. Boyd was cited for his interior line play after being pressed into nearly full-time duty after regular tackle Jim Klene missed the bus to Connersville and did not play Friday night. Besides making several vital tackles and opening holes for the ball carrier Boyd recovered a fumble on the local 31 yard line that halted an early Spartan drive.

MAIN Season's First Victory-^ Pirates Explode In to Bury Spartans, 27-12 By DON AUSTIN The local high school football team scored its first victory of the season in highly convincing fashion Friday night at Connersville, exploding. for three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away from the win- le'ss Spartans, 27-12. With Greensburg leading by a scant 7-6. margin going into the last 12 minutes, hard-charging fullback Bill Tucker literally "ran wild" against the hapless hosts, scoring two touchdowns seemingly almost single-handed \vithin the space of four minute's. He carried for 25 yards in three plays for.the.first TD and then came right back with runs of eight and 37 yards for the second one. But actually his feats—inspiring as they were—were far from single-handed as they were made possible, by some fine offensive line play that opened the holes for him arid cleared the way. As Coach BiH Bless said after the game, "All the boys played a real good game," although Tucker was definitely the standout. The well - deserved, morale boosting triumph in the South Central Conference affair snapped-a four-game losing streak that had seen the Pirates edged out in each of then- previous -encounters, three of them league tilts. Connersville now .has only a 6-6 tie with Rushville last Friday to show for five outings, including four SCC matches. A good local crowd of more than 300 was on hand in the cool crisp weather, counting the Greensburg High. School band that performed at the halftone intermission before the Connersville band took the field. First Quarter The -Pirates assumed a 7-0 lead on the last play of the first quarter when speedster Danny Jones returned a Spartan punt 68 yards to the endzone behind excellent downfield blocking. It was a play much like halfback Larry McCamment's 78-yard kickoff_ return , against Shelby- Vflle last week as ;Jones hesitated momentarily after taking the kick at his own 32 and then scooted down the sidelines to pay dirt. He followed his interference nicely arid cut back inside at the Connersville 20 to avoid the last defenders between him and the goal. The versatile Jones also added the extra point with a near-perfect placekick, his 10th successful conversion hi 11 attempts this year. The Buccaneers, displaying a much improved defense for the second straight game, then came up with a fine goal line stand at the end of the first half to protect the lead. The Spartans controlled the ball for all but four plays of the second period and marched from their own 21 .to within one foot of the Greensburg goal before being stopped. This drive saw hard-running halfback Ron Thompson pick up 32 yards after a deceptive handoff and quarterback Jim Goble complete a long pass to halfback Larry Sturgeon that produced a first down on the six. Two running plays moved the ball to the orie, but then Goble was stopped for no gain and Thompson got only to the one- foot . marker on a fourth down plunge. Spartans Score However, the defensive unit fell down and permitted a Connersville score as the second half got underway. The Spartans received the kickoff and after a 20-yard pass play netted a first on the local 40 Thompson scampered around his left end for the touchdown. But Gbble's attempted placekick for the PAT was blocked by three or four charging Buc linemen and Greensburg still led, 7-6. Guard Pat McCarty recovered a fumble for the Blessmen a little later but the offense couldn't get moving and Alan Goddard put the hosts in a hole with a good punt to their 13. As the third round came to an end Jones returned a punt from the 20 to the midfield stripe. A 30-yard Goddard punt and a 15-yard penalty on the Spartans dropped them back to their 10 and Bob Barker partially deflected a punt, Greensburg taking possession on the 25. Tucker took over then, in a big way. Taking advantage of an ap- parerit weak spot in the middle of.the Connersville line, he first charged 13 yards to the 12 and then put the ball over the double stripe with two, successive six- yard carries. Jones added the point and it was 14-6 with 6:47 to play. — Daily News Photo.

PLACEKICK FOR EXTRA POINT — Camera catches ball about to sail over the crossbar for first of three successful conversion attempts by Greensburg's Danny Jones in Pirates 27-12 decision at Connersville Friday night. Following the ensuing kickoff, halfback McCamment picked off a Spartan aerial at midfield and Tucker promptly chalked up another TD, which put the game out of Connersville's reach. After an eight-yard pickup, Tucker took a handoff, spun away at the line of scrimmage 'and shook off a couple more would-be tacklers with a courageous "second effort" that enabled him to race 37 yards to the endzone. Jones' kick was again good, making it 21-6. The Pirates weren't through y,et though. After the Spartans lost the ball on downs at the local 47 on the next series, Tucker made 'eight up the middle and McCamment took the ball after a fake handoff to Tucker and swept "right end for a 45-yard touchdown run. The kick for point was off to the right this time but the Scoreboard read 27-6. The losers did come back with a "face-saving" TD, but the issue had long since been decided. A 51-yard pass from Goble to end John Adams and a 15- yard penalty against Greensburg gave them a first down on the 28. A pass interference penalty moved it to the 14, from where Goble tossed to Adams for the touchdown. The PAT kick was again blocked. The Spartans gained possession again on a fumble at their 30 and Goble continued to pass successfully to 1 Adams, moving the ball to the local 24 before time ran out. Pass Very Little For the second straight game quarterback George Lanning elected not to throw .the hall since, the ground attack was functioning adequately. He passed only three times, com- __ pleting "one for five yards.
