Alton Repels Stubborn Quincy Bid, 14-13 By DON PLARSKI Telegraph Sports Editor If center Vic Schwartz doesn't break his big <right toe this season, Alton High School may make what appears to be a long season a short one. By the barest of margins, the Redbirds edged visiting Quincy Friday night in the season opener .<at West Junior High School, 14-13. Schwartz' two perfect ex- tra point kicks were the difference. Quincy, apparently bent on avenging a humiliating 45-0 bombardment by these same Redbirds last year, dominated the game In every phase except the most Important— the f|nal score.

Coach Clell Wade's blue and while clad invaders ran 63 plays to Alton's 30, yet managed to wile away three glittering opportuni ties through a fumble, failure to win a race against the clock and a fourth down loss on the Alton 12 late in the third quarter. Alton, however, cashed In on Its only two opportunities of the game. Qttlncy took the opening klckoff and moved steadily toward the Redblrd end zone. On the Alton 33. quarterback Steve Gustison rolled out to his Friday 13th Unlucky For Explorers, 19-0 By BILL LHOTKA Telegraph Sports Writer JERSEYVILLE - The Explorers of Marquette know only too well that it was Friday the 13th as they succumbed to the powerful Panthers of Jerseyville, 19-0, on the latter's field. After playing Jerseyville even for one quarter and holding the Panthers' vaunted running game to minus 10 yards, Marquettc handed the ball over to Jerseyville on the third play of the second quarter. A pitchout \\ent awry in the Marquette Imokfldd and guard Mike Simpson of Jerseyville pounced on the ball on the Explorer 26-yard line. Three runs netted minus five yards but on fourth and 12 from the 27, lefty halfback Jim Trask hit right end Dave Raftis on the 13-yard line for the key first down. Four plays later right halfback Maurice Williams barrelled over from the five. After an offside penalty put the ball back on the seven, the Trask-to-Raftis combination again clicked and the Panthers led 7-0. The third quarter was a toss up for 11 minutes and 10 seconds &s neither team mounted a serious drive. Then, svith less than a minute to go, Fullback Craig Whitlock rambled for nine yards, quarterback Ray Smith picked up three and a first down on the Explorer 33, and Whitlock went Pleasant Hill Jumps Bluffs In 27-13 Bow BLUFFS — The Wolves of Pleasant Hill, who hope to be a contender for the Illinois Valley Conference crown, flexed their muscles in a non-conference clash with Bluffs Friday night, winning handily, 27-13.

Pleasant Hill then broke the contest wide open in the second period with 14 points on a 55- yard gallop by Barnes and a seven - yard dash by halfback Dave Jennings. Dave Griffith carried over for one extra point and Jennings scored the other. In the third period Jennings again went seven yards for the Wolves and Griffith smashed over for the extra point as Pleasant Hill built its lead to 27-0.

On second down and seven with 16 seconds left in t h e frame, Smith faded back and fired a strike to Trask along the right sideline and the fleet halfback went 20 yards for the insurance score. On the second play of the final period Marquette quarterback Tom Tueth let a pass get away from him and defensive back Willie Watson intercepted on the Explorer 46. After Whitlock was stopped in the middle, Trask rolled out to the left and galloped 21 yards to the Marquette 24. Williams gained one up the middle, then dashed down the right sideline to the two-yard line from where he went over the left side on the next snap from center. That was all the scoring there was but Marquette couldn't come back. Neither starting quarterback Tueth nor reserve signal caller Guy Nasello was able to move the Explorer eleven. The Panther secondary was tough on pass defense, intercept- Ken Boyer Homers Off 'Cousin' Spahn By JOE REICHLEK Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) — "I've had good luck against Warren Spahn the last few years," said Ken Boy er, the St. Louis Cardinals' third baseman. He is one of the only two men who can make that statement. The other is grandfather Stan Musial. The two Cards were up to their old tricks against the veteran left- hander Friday night, as they sparked a first inning rally off Spahn that led to the 16th victory in the last 17 games for the a .339 pace and hit 10 homers, including the big one Friday night. "I couldn't do anything with Spahn when I first came up," Boyer said. "As a youngster I tried to pull him and I just couldn't. I couldn't figure out why at first because he didn't overpower you, and he did- not have too good a curve. But he had the screwball and the change of speeds and uncanny control to go with it. "It wasn't until I decided to go with his pitch, that is, hit the out- rampaging Cardinals. The scors side P itch to the opposite field that f began to have success with him. Friday night's homer may help silence the jeering of the Cardina fans. For some odd reason, Boyer has been a target all year, although he is having what he considers his most productive season in the ma- was 7-0. St. Louis closed to within 2Vi games of league-leading Los Angeles. Musial started it with a two-out double. Boyer followed with a homer. The barrage may have come as no great surprise to the great veteran Spahn. Over the years, since they first met on June 16, 1946, Musial has hit Spahn for a .314 average and 14 home runs. And Boyer has been even tougher—since 1955, Ken's first year in the majors, he has hit Spahn for J 9 ville Hosts Motorcyclists The Missouri Mules Motorcycle ]lub of St. Louis will sponsor a 3-Star half mile flat track race at the American Legion Park, highway 67A north of Jerseyville, Sunday. There will be professional racers from all over the United States participating in nine thrilling events.

Time trials start at 1 p.m. Races start at 2 o'clock. The booing began the first home game, when Boyer made one ol his rare boots. Boyer is at a loss to account for the fan reaction. "Certainly I hear it," he said "But I can't afford to let it affect my playing. In fact, I think I bear down that much harder.' The winning pitcher was Curt Simmons, who limited the Braves to five hits. In today's game, Bob Gibson (17-8) was to face Milwaukee's Bob Sadowski (5-5). MILWAUKEE (0) ST.

Girard scored all its points in the first half. The winners scored twice in the first quarter. The first score came when Brad Ford passed a yard to Mark Whitler. The second six - pointer came on a 14-yard scamper off tackle by Greg Sanson. Both extra points were missed and it was 12-0 heading into the second period. Girard added its other two TDs in the second quarter. Sanson ran 17 yards up the middle for the first one and Ford ran for the extra point for a 19-0 margin.

Greenfield hosts Northwestern of Palmyra next Friday night. the face mask, a 15 yard penalty was tacked on and Alton had the ball on the Devil 26. Five plays later L e r o y Johnson look another pitch- nut from Gwlllim for a touchdown from five yards out. Schwartz' second kick made it M-fi. Quincy began another drive on HIP ensuing kickoff. The Devils reached the Alton 12 where it was fourth and two for a first down. Wyatt was called on, but Alton's Tom Sims knifed through the middle and brought the Quincy speedster down for a five- yard loss. Sims' ankle tackle was the key play of the game. It took the life out of the Quincy attack and gave Alton a respite from the continuous onslaught by the Devil backs. Quincy was not to be denied its second touchdown, in the fourth quarter. Scott recovered his second fumble for the Devils, this time on the Alton 19. It took Quincy seven plays to score. The payoff was a seven-yard toss from Gustison to end L e r o y Roberts in the left corner. This time Jenkins' kick was perfect and it was 14-13 with 2:52 left to play. Alton managed to hang onto the ball the rest of the way. The two Johnsons had a good night for the Redbirds. They combined to gain 127 of Alton's 136 yards on the ground. Andrew gained 54 yards in eight carries for 6.8 average and Leroy totaled 73 for 6.6 each try. Until' Daffener was injured he was outstanding. He lugged the ball seven times and had 46 yards for 6.4. Wyatt was a workhorse. He was called on 23 times and got 57 yards net for 2.5 per assignment. There were a few bright spots in Alton's defensive showing. Middle linebacker Otis Hall was a thorn in Quincy's side. The interior defensive linemen for Alton, on some occasions, gave a show of what could be in store for some opponents this season. Whether Quincy's veteran-studded club has improved as much as the score might indicate or whether Alton has a long way to go will be brought out next weekend by scrappy crosstown rival Marquette and certainly the following weekend when the Redbirds travel to East St. Louis for a Southwestern Conference tilt with the Flyers. Alton's conquest of the Blue Devils evens its series with the western Illinois eleven at four games apiece and gives the home- towners three straight victories over them.
