Academy 17 to 12 despite Vernon Nelson's one man rally In the second half. Nelson, who accounted for ten points, scored all of the local team's field goals. As In previous games, Kelly's charges displayed a tight defense but little scoring punch. Corpus Christl lead 8 to 3 at-the end of the first half and despite Nelson's scor- nlg spree in the second maintained its five point margin. The Academy second team also lost 10 to 4.
