SPORTS OUTDOOR RECREATION THE KANSAS CITY STAR nirmnni? rftrf ati OUTDOOR RECREATION SECTION KANSAS CITY SUNDAY OCTOBER 8 1967 Huskers Slip By K-State on Late Field Goal Dennis Morrison on the final play before field goal This was an extremely disappointing loss for the Wildcats but their fans can take great pride (the word Coach Vince Gibson has impressed on his players) in the performance of the entire team There was just as much effort in the frantic final minute when the were trying to come back as there had been in the opening minutes By Bill Sims (Assistant Sports Editor of The Star) Manhattan Kas For almost 59 incredible minutes the charged-up Kansas State Wildcats led vaunted Nebraska yesterday but Bill 31-yard field goal with one minute-ll-seconds left finally produced a 16-14 triumph for the seventh-ranked Huskers Drenched by rain early the Kansas State fans in the crowd of 20000 had plenty of time to bask in the glory of two first-quarter touchdowns that threatened to account for the biggest Big Eight conference shocker in years But it just in the books as Nebraska dominated the second half under the expert guidance of Frank Patrick its sophomore quarterback Still there was hope for the Wildcat partisans after the Huskers scored their second touchdown with 1:17 remaining in the third quarter to slice the deficit to 14-13 At this point Bill Kennedy junior defensive end from Topeka broke through to deflect try for the extra point enough that it sailed wide to the left Three times in the fourth quarter valiant defenders stymied the Nebraska attack but on the fourth possession the tired muddy Wildcats just stop the Husker thrust that started on the 15 and drove to the 14 in 16 plays to set up the winning kick With time running out Patrick turned almost exclusively to the air after steering the Huskers to the midfield stripe Three times he fired to Dennis Richnafsky whose 13 catches set a Nebraska school record to fullback Dick Davis once and to end Although the statistics are misleading (Nebraska gained 114 yards rushing and 193 passing) defense was magnificent Time after time the Wildcats rose to the occasion to make the big play They just get enough help from the offense in the second half The Wildcats had control of the ball on only 24 plays after intermission Nebraska meanwhile ran off 44 plays in the final two periods and kept K-State penned up deep in its territory except when a piling-on penalty put the across midfield for the only time in the second half difficult to pinpoint individual standouts in a game such as this hut names that rush to mind are Kennedy Danny Lankas Lon Austin Ken Eck-hardt Mike Goyne" and Mitch Borota on defense (Continued on Page 10S) Kansas State-Nebraska Statistics NU K-Stata Firs downs 21 7 Rushing

Cepeda was aroused from his October hibernation long enough to double home a run in the eighth The Cardinals achieved the victory before a crowd of 54575 in Busch Memorial stadium It is the largest crowd ever to see a sporting event here Gibson Ready Today The victory could well prove to be a pivotal one for the Cardinals who lead two games to one and have their ace Bob Gibson ready to face the Red Sox today The Boston starter will be Jose Santiago who was hit hard in the opening game even though he lost by a score of only 2-1 Although Briles finished the day in controversy no one was arguing about the effectiveness of his pitching He gave up seven scattered hits walked no one and struck out four He yielded a run-scoring single to Dalton Jones in the sixth and a homer to Reggie Smith in the seventh Briles completely disarmed Yastrzemski who grounded out with men on base in each of his three final trips after being hit on the leg with a pitch in the first inning The game itself was somewhat routine but it was enlivened by the charges that flew afterward Yastrzemski and his manager Dick Williams said Briles hit Yastrzemski deliberately Briles and his manager Red Schoen-dienst denied the charge Yastrzemski who drove in four runs with two homers in game came to the plate with two out and no one on in the first Briles hit him with his first pitch Yastrzemski said the ball was thrown behind him and there was no doubt Briles was throwing at him Williams immediately protested to Frank Umont the plate umpire He asked Umont if there was going to be a throwing contest Umont then called Schoendienst nut and informed both managers he would handle the matter They Talk After the game Schoendienst said Briles was not throwing at anyone He said his pitchers sometimes brush a' hitter back but do not throw at them He added that the Cardinals go around talking about throwing at hitters as does Jim Lonborg In the end both sides agreed to go right on disagreeing The first inning proved to be distressing to the Red Sox in more ways than one Brock who went 4-for-4 in the opening game tripled to the wall in left-center to open the half of the first Flood drove him home with a single to center Tim McCarver singled to open the last of the second as Bell continued to struggle Shannon followed with a smash into the left-field seats Javier singled to

after the first half that portion of the game that unfolded in acceptable weather Rain Comes After Half Then just before the second-half kick-off the weatherman received visable proof that his forecast of rain was accurate The stands became a sea of umbrellas they stayed up the rest of the half But performance held most of the 45000 fans in their seats It was a game of careful maneuvering
