Sedalia Democrat, Sunday, November 5,1967 Smith-Cotton Drops Underdog Role, 25-7 Mike RobertSOn Leads Sport Scraps | Team With Two TD’s Opponents Junior Soccer Team Rate Two Preparing To Play Sedalians i ^ By D. Kelly Scruton Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm By D. Kelly Scruton Sports Editor It was a cold and dreary night down in Springfield, he snow which fell Friday morning in Springfield pri(jay night—for Springfield Hillcrest—but the Smith- Two members of the Sedalia Junior Kickers Soccer team were honored with all-opponent selections. Evangel College Crusaders of Springfield selected Bobby Paxton, SJ’s center half, while Central put goalie Ron Huhman on it all­ opponent team. Bobby Paxton, age 15, has been playing soccer in the Sedalia Assocaition for three years, giving play previously to the Town & Country Juvenile member of the only froze up the Hillcrest Hornets and the chill air only potton Tigere warmed things up as they went to a 25-7 ^oXmore“" Smith" made the Smith-Cotton Tigers fight that much harder victory. The Tigers played the Hornets like they really Cotton High School. At his to keep warm and as a result they came home late in business and their work paid dividends, the night on not only a full stomach of a big steak but jjjg a^ a 25-7 victory over Hillcrest. Goiiig into the game the Tigers were somewhat classed as the under-dog but they came out the “top-dog.” Two beautiful touchdown runs by Mike Robertson, one fo»* 92 yards and another of 85, were nullified because someb^ was caught clipping. But it didn’t phase the Sedalians. They just üghtened up their belts and went on to prove their point — they could win. There were thirty some-odd football boys who were mighty happy over the victory, but I don’t believe they were anymore happier over the night’s work than the Tiger’s new coach Chuck Shelton. After the game, he praised the boys. “They just went out there tonight determined to win and played a great game. They didn’t take any chances but took advantage of every break that came their way.’’ Shelton was high on the praise of the boys and called attention to the two long runs by Robertson, then switched to the handUng of the team by Larry Thomas, quarterback, and the drive of Don Thompson and the push of Crank, not failing to call attention to the fine blocking the boys dispoayed all night long, their continuous drive, drive and drive. i The coach was doubtful of t clip called on one of the Tige^ during Robertson’s 85-yard touchdown run, which was called back. To me it looked like a fine block. “It happened in front of me,’’ Shelton explained, but that isn't the way the officials saw it, so it was a clip. To the large delegation of Sedaliai^ who drove down to Springfield there was no doubt the team was really UP and playing their very best. In fact looking over the large stadium it appeared as if Üiere were more Sedalia people in the stands in the adults than Springfield people. Some said they kinda figured the bo^ made up their minds to deliver a win down in Sprir^field just to satisfy the hometown fans who drove that miles down to the John F. Kennedy Stadium to see them play. ( _________ Speaking of the football rating, one wonders just how to figure this one out. Those, Springfield and Southwest football teams are a tough bunch and play a hard circuit, but when you start figuring, one wonders about Smith- Cotton. Listening to the Glendale high school of Springfield and the Joplin Bulldogs game while our own game was in progress, Joplin defeated Glendale by a 21-13 score. A Springfield fan remarked “what do you know?’’ then went on to explain Glendale beat Hillcrest 7-6; Hillcrest beat Joplin 10-0; Central beat Hillcrest 7-6 and now comes that team from Sedalia which wasn’t supposed to win and beats Hillcrest 25-7. “It doens’t make sense, but that’s football,’’ he remarked. There is one thing definite. Smith-Cotton has to keep its image up this coming Friday when it is to meet Springtield Partcview on the Jennie Jaynes Stadium grifiron. Parkview up to the past week had a 0-7 record for the season and would like nothing better than to upset the Tigers, just because they turned Hillcrest upside down. Friday night will tell the story. I noted with interest Mr. A. C. Renner of Kansas City is all “hot and bothered” about the tax dollar pari-mutuel betting on horse racing. It isn’t artything new in this column. I can take the readers back, back and back years where suggestions, recommendations and reports for pari-mutuel for Missouri would be a benefit. What makes this interesting that is the suggestion of Mr. Renner was carried on last Wednesday in the Kansas City star along with a picture of the immense crowd at Churchill Downs, Louisville, Ky. A si^gestion, or indication, was in effect it would go great along with the Jackson County sports complex. I heartily agree, it would be great, but let’s not make it a program for the Metropolitan areas only. Like Kansas City and St. Louis. Right here in Sedalia the finest mile dirt track in the country is located; Springfield is also a likely location for *\n outstanding track. Actually we here in Sedalia are just a little jealous over the fact much of the push started in Sedalia for siK?h a law because Missouri is missing millions of dollars for the general revenue. But I still contend monies derived from the prr^ram should be set up percentage­ wise to give assistance to 4-H, FFA, County Fairs, the Empire fair at Springfield, and the Missouri State Fair. What they would receive could be used toward imprwing the two youth programs in agriculture, while Uie fair groups could use it for capital improvements. We are now happy that some people in Kansas City have joined the crusade to push for pari-mutuel betting in Missouri — ♦o help M^ouri and Missourians. EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP)—It looked like Michigan State had upset strong Southern California. Spartan players were congratulating end Allen Brennen after he caught a Jimmy Raye fOTward pass for a touchdown. Then an official dropped a red flag and the TD was nullified and Michigan State trailed 21-17. That was the final score. The touchdown which wasn’t allowed climaxed an 84-yard drive against the Trojans. to bother the Tigers. They took advantage of about anything that came along. Midway of the first quarter a 92-yard touchdown run by Mike Robertson was nullified because of a clipping penalty and the ball was set down just one yard back of where he took the punt from Springfield’s halfback Steve Stratton. As a result the Tigers were stymied and had to punt from their 17, it going to the Tiger 49 yard line. But to prove a point the break came. On the first play Larry Thompson, a Hornet halfback was shook up and fumbled and Allen Bone playing on the defense moved in quickly and pulled the ball in — on the Tiger 49. Smith-Cotton’s Don Thompson picked up four yards, only to see it disappear on the next play when off-sides were called. On a pitch-out to Mike Robertson who started down the field, to get eight yards and a clipping penalty was called on the Hornets and from the point of infraction the ball was put down on the Springfield 25. Don Crank picked up two yards, then Larry Thomas picked out to Robertson who went tearing down the turf 23 yards for the first score. Lee Deal kicked the extra point, giving the Tigers the first score. The TD came with one minute and 12 seconds left on the clock. The lead held up until two minutes and 52 seconds were left on the clock in the second quarter. Terry Arnold was forced to punt from his 10 and the ball rolled out on the 33 yard line of Smith-Cotton. A five-yard penalty gave the opponents a first down and it was on the 23. Quarterback Keith Frazier pickàl up three yards, and on the next play he pitched a beautiful pass to Geral Hill, his left end who was in the end zone for the score. Hill then booted the extra point. The first half ended with the teams knotted 7 and 7. Opening the second half another heart breaker came when a Tigerman was accused of clipping. Mike Robertson had received the kickoff from Springfield on the Tiger 15 and went dashing 85 yards to pay territory. It was nullified and the ball called back. The point from the penalty minus the 15 yards put it on the Hornets 36. The fighting mad Tigers wouldn’t be stopped. They picked up two first downs six line plays included which was a fumble by Thomas who pulled in to keep its possession. The second first down came on a 11 yard pass to Arnold and the ball was on the 10-yard stripe. Mike Robertson went charging into the center of the line with PROMISING HEAVYWEIGHT Jerry Quarry, although still in contention for the world elimination tournament championship, will tell you that even winners sometimes get Jolted. Quarry grimaces In this action photo after being tagged with a left hook. determination and went the distance to score. Apparently the Hornets were giving Rusty Johnson a hard time and he centered the ball over Deal’s head. But the score now was 137 for the Tigers It came with seven minutes and 53 seconds left on the clock. The score at the end of the quarter remained 13-7. The fourth quarter saw the Hornets in possession of the ball on the Tiger 40. Larry Thompson picked up a first down and the ball was at the Tiger 29. Geral Hflr on a reverse lost three. An incomplete pass, a pass to Steve Stratton went for a minus three yards. In an endeavor to move the Hornets chose to try the fourth down, and failed the Tigers taking over on their own 34. Don Thompson was called upon and picked up four yards, the next play the Tigers were in motion and lœt five on a penalty. Robertson gained them back and on the next play the Hornets donated a first down on a 15 yard penalty, the ball to the Hornets 45. Three first downs came about with the ball being carried by Robertson for 10 yards on three plays. Crank 2 yards on two plays, Jerry Morris two yards on a pass while Thompson carried seven times for a total of 31 yards, the last two yards through the line for the touchdown with two minutes and 33 seconds left on the clock. Deal’s kick fell to the left of the uprights. The score now 19 to 7. The Hornets took the kick off on their own 29. The Tigers contributed a first down to them on a 15 yard penalty. The ball was at the Hornet 44, but a swarming bunch of Tigers gave Keithe Frazier “a fit” causing him to lose 15 yards. His paæ was incomplete but the Hornets drew a 15 yard penalty and the ball was back on the 14 yard line. Two incomplete passes followed, then Stratton was called upon to punt out of the danger territoiy only to see a wall of Tigers swooping down on him, the punt blocked by Terry Arnold on the 18 yard line and recovered by Ken Drenon. Roberts picked up two yards which was followed by a perfect pass by Larry Thomas to Je^ Morris for the touchdown with 29 seconds on the clock. Again a bad pass from center deprived the Tigers of the extra point but they had a safe lead. After the kickoff two incomplete passes netted nil and the game was over.

He stands 5’3”, weighing 108 , making him the smallest man on the 15-18- year-olds team. He makes up for his statue with the big foot. Ron Huhman, age 16, is in his third year of soccer and a Junior at Sacred Heart High. Huhman early this season was playing on the offensive line for the S^alia Kickers, but an injury to the previous goalie led to Ron’s taking over the nets, where he’s been ever since. In the Central College Game he held the bigger and stronger college scoreless for 71 minutes before relinquishing. The 6’1” athlete has scored four goals with the offenseive line. Coach Koerner of the Sedalia Juniors said upon hearing of the selection; “I’m very happy for both of these young men. These two embody all that is good in our Sedalia youth and serve as worthwhile examples of what can result from the good of a community and amateur athletic programs.” Named to second team selection were Rich Parker and Scotty Dick. Both are newcomers to the Junior team and have been key men in the Sedalia’s man to man defense. Parker, 5” 10, age 14, is a Freshman at Smith- Cotton, while Dick, 5’8’, age 17, is a Junior at Sacred Heart.

(AP) - Oklahoma turned two pass interceptions and a fumble into touchdowns and stymied Colorado’s offeree as the Sooners beat the ninth-ranked Buffaloes 23-0 to take command of the Big Elight Conference race Saturday. The Sooners won their third straight league game without a loss as Colorado suffered its second defeat in a row. Sophomore tailback Steve Owens punched in for the first two touchdowns from short yardage and Eddie Hinton went three yards for the other as the pass interceptions and the fumble set Oklahoma up at Colorado’s 44, 34 and 29-yard lines. Both interceptions, one by halfback Bob Stephenson and the other by linebacker Rick Goodwin came off Colorado quarterback Bob Anderson, who had surrendered only one pass all year. Tailback William Harris lost the fumble after he was cracked by the hard charging Granville Liggins. The Sooners first three points came on a 21-yard field goal by Mike V^hon, his first after seven misses this season. The field goal was set up by a partially blocked punt which went only 13 yards to the Colorado 23. The Sooner defease, spearheaded by middleguard Liggins, allowed Colorado past midfield only once in the second half, that late in the fourth quarter.

CMSC Mules Defeat Maryville WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP)Quarterback Ken Brumley accounted for half of Warrensburg State’s points as the Mules defeated Maryville State 24-14 in an MIAA football game Saturday. Brumley ran for a touchdown, kicked three extra points and kicked a 28-yard field goal. In addition, he completed 9 of 14 passes for 147 yards. Maryville’s touchdowns came on a 2-yard plunge by fullback Tom Owen and a 30-yard pass from quarterback Don Orlew- ski to Barry Montigan. Four of the next five days will be spent by the Sedalia Junior Kicker to prepare for this coming week-end’s Sedalia Cup. Today the Juniors will match speed with Club Kansas City at K.C. and Wed. will battle CMSC, a team that has handled the SJ’s twice this season, 4-3 and 2-0. Sandwiched beteeen will be hard practices on adding scoring punch to the Sedalia front line. Coach Koerner has added two new shooters to the forward wall in the persons of Bobby Paxton and Bill Balance, both had previously worked defensive assignments. Another possible change in the line-up is the placing Ron Huhman in the right fullback spot. Koerner stated, “Our boys know what they have to do to SW Baptists Prepare To Open Season A young team with potential, the Southwest Baptist College Bearcats enter their fourth week of preparation for the 196768 cage season. To get in the best physical condition possible, this year’s squad has been running approximately 2.7 miles each day before practice. Coach Jim Dudley is also drilling the team extensively in fundamentals, especially screening for rebounds and defense, the key to any good basketball team. Considerable time has also been devoted to mastering the Bearcat offense and building team organization as the boys prepare for the Homeconing opener against Northeastern Oklahoma on November 18. Coach Dudley is “well pleased with the progress made to date. However, these three weeks have just shown us how far we have to go before we become a good competitive team.” In its third season in senior college competition.

South team, who are a young team made up of experienced players from The Bi-State High ^hool League. They are a team which has won big and lost big, which is similar to the new look SJ’s as the locals have had a totally new item brought to local soccer the man-to-man play and are in their first full season as a team. The local Cup committee has applied for sanctioning by the U.S. Soccer Football Association. If lliis achieved it will make it one of only seven in the United States, putting it in class with the National Junior Cup, U.S. Open Cup, and the U.A. Amatuer Cup which in the last ten years has been dominated by St. Louis and Chicago Teams. This past week Khoury League officials have been visiting civic club meetings and have met with support in this project to bring top calibre soccer to the Sedalia area and to expand the present program upwards of the already 550 participants and 30 teams.

John Edward Wray, longtime sports editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a columnist for 47 years, is 1967’s posthumous nominee for the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. Along with two living honorées — Ernie Mehl, ex­ sports editor of the Kansas City Star, and harness racer Frank Ervin of Sedalia — Mr. Wray becomes the 29th sports personality to formally join the state’s shrien at a banquet in Columbia on Nov. 18. The induction banquet, set for 5:30 p.m. in the Daniel Boone hotel following the MU-Nebraska football game, is open to the public — and tickets are $5.00 each. Known nationally for his integrity and high standard of literacy in an era when topflight writing and high ideals were not always found in his field, the late Mr. Wray wrote for the Post-Dispatch from September, 1900 until August, 1955 — except for a four-year period (1904-08) as sports editor of the Globe-Democrat. Born in Alton, 111., July 6, 1873, Mr. Wray graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and turned to the newspaper field after deciding engineering was not his field — and an unsuccessful career in the haberdashery business. As sports editor of the Post- Dispatch for 38 years until diminishing eyesight forced him to give up in 1955, Mr. Wray estimated that he wrote more than 16,000 columns and nearly 20,000,000 words. Although extremely versatile, Mr. Wray was especially devoted to horse racing, boxing and football. He was named to the Helms Foundation’s Sports Journalists’ Hall of Fame at a tœtimonial dinner in his eightieth birthday. He died in November, 1961, after throat surgery at the age of 88.

Huskers Defeat I-State LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska used Its vaunted defense to shackle Iowa Slate Saturday and untrack its own sputtering offense long enough to score a 12-6 win in a Big Eight football struggle before 65,078. A first quarter field goal and a third quarter touchdown and safety gave Nebraska its margin. The victory boosted Nebraska’s defending loop champions to a 2-2 mark in the Big Eight, 5-2 over-all, and kept alive a fragile Cornhusker hope for a title tie. Iowa State stands 2-6 for the season, 1-4 in the conference. A Nebraska defense led by All-American middle guard Wayne Meylan held the Cyclones to 10 yards total offense in the first half, and Iowa State did not register a first down until the final play of the third quarter. Nebraska moved the ball well in spurts, managing 174 yards in the first half alone, but scarcely threatened until given a pair of third quarter opportunities by the defensive unit. The opening counter came in the game’s early minutes when a short Iowa State punt into the wind gave Nebraska possession on Iowa State’s 21 and set up a 23-yard field goal by Bill Bomberger. A 3-0 Nebraska lead stood up until the third quarter when Adrian F'iala intercepted a John Warder pass in Iowa State territory. Quarterback Frank Patrick made the 41-yard drive good on a one-yard keeper.
