SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 13. 1954 yANARD PRESS-COURIER--PHONE HU 3-1101 MGE FlVt \ Yellowjackets Rout Fillmore, 43-0 Houck Runs for 3 Touchowns By Hal Tottcn Off to a mild start, Oxnar High's Yellowjackets suddenly went touchdown-berserk anc routed visiting Fillmore, 43-0 before a homecoming crowd o 2.500 fans at Houser Field las night. It was a terrific team triumph for the Yellowpackets, but the biggest hero of them all wa; tailback Jim Houck who per sonally scored three touch down s on runs of 25, 10 and 31 yards and accounted for nearb half of Oxnard's yardage on ground. Despite the victory, Oxnard's championship ambitions were further clouded when unbeater Ventura tripped Antelope Valley 19-14 to clinch at least a tie for the title. The Flashes acted as though they intended to give Oxnard trouble in the first quarter last night. Speedy Don Yount returned the opening kickoff 60 yards to the Oxnard 28 yard line, but the sturdy Oxnard line held the visitors to a net two yards in four tries. Another Fillmore Chance Fillmore got another good chance just a minute later when Lester Jones recovered an Oxnard fumble on the Yellowjacket's 30-yard stripe. But once again the Flashes were repelled short of a first down and Oxnard took over on their own 21 That man Darryl Mortensen who turned a tight game with Antelope Valley into a lopsided affair with his 94-yard runback of a fumble, again broke the ice last night when he intercepted a flat pass by Fillmore's Hilton Suttle and raced 70 yards for a teedee. Richard Herrera's kick wa? wide, leaving the count, 6-0. Just before the half ended. George Ragsdale circled right end on a reverse from four yards out. climaxing an 85-yard drive. Houck and Bill Eaton, playing fullback, alternated in lugging the leather during the long march. Herrera booted the only extra point of the night to make it 13-0. Houck Docs If Houck. playing perhaps his finest game of the season, racked up the first of his three touchdowns in the third period when he faked a pass and then cut inside left end for 25 yards. Eaton had set it up by returning an intercepted pass 11 yards. The speedy Mr. Houck returned a Fillmore punt 36 yards to the Flashes' 19-yard line a short while later. Eaton picked up nine yards in two carries and Houck again sliced between tackle and end for a tally, carrying two Fillmore tacklers with him for the last five yards. Oxnard Guard Jessie Jones recovered a Fillmore fumble on the Flashes' 30-yard line on the last play of the third period. Houck was spilled for a three- yard loss as the fourth quarter opened, but more than made up for it on the next play when he ran all the way into Fillmore's private property for another six points. A beautiful block by guard Ernie Morgan on the 20 helped pave the way. Beckham Scores Oxnard's Don Beckham intercepted a pass on the Fillmore 20 yard line to set up the next touchdown. He also did the scoring on a three-yard dash around right end from the tailback spot. He was forced to do It twice as previously a seven- ,, ___._, yard jaunt into the end \v.i«; nul- hey don't. 1 don't ""even*" turn in lificd by backfield in motion |a report on them.'' penalty. .Tones, one of the Oxnard line standouts, recovered hi= second Killmore fumble and this time ran it back 40 yards for the last OXXARD'S JIM HOUCK lowers his head and drives into Fillmore player with a tremendous impact in fourth quarter of game last night.

The Chattanooga Moccasins are favored by 10 points. It is Xavier's ball, fourth down and two feet to go on its own 39-yard line. Xavier is running from the split-T (linemen separated a yard apart) and has gained surprisingly well but fumbles and an intercepted pass have kept them from scoring. Xavier has the wind to its back.
