Pokes ambush Miners September 20, 1977/The Prospector/Page 5 Most people envision cowboys as big, tough characters, but the 'Pokes from Wyoming relied on the small and swift to turn back, the UT El Paso Miners, 27-17 last Saturday in Laramie. A 64-yard sprint by Wyoming's -fleet halfback Myron Hardeman broke the Miners' hopes of victory in the high country. UT El Paso had closed the 'Pokes' lead to two points late in the final quarter when Hardeman broke away from the Wyoming 36-yard line. Wyoming turned a Miner fumble' irito the first score of the game; a 22-yard field goal by Dan Christopulos. A shanked punt by the Miners' Jerry Walker led to Wyoming's first touchdown; a five-yard scamper by quarterback Don Clayton with 2:01 left in the first quarter. The Cowboys went into the locker room with an 11-0 first half lead. The Miners drove 72 yards in one play for their first score of the con test; an aerial from freshman quarterback Mike McCall to wide receiver Bubba Garcia. A 43-yard sprint by halfback Latrail Jones and a safety resulting from a mishandled kick return resulted in Wyoming taking a 19-7 third quarter lead. A Miguel Alvarez 30-yard field goal and an 11-yard scoring strike from McCall to Garcia brought the Miners back to life in the fourth quarter. Coach's point of view: "The. most,positive thing I saw was some young people played and played well. John Lopez, Terrence Prevost, Keith Young, Mike McCall and Leon Jones were outstanding. Jimmy Ybanez did a super job on the specialty team. Garcia played a good game despite double coverage on him. Off en sively we accomplished more this week in the field position part of the game. The defense played a fine football game. The goal line stand was the high point of their game. Keith.,Black and Elroy Stoglin did some good things for us.
