OHIO STATE SCORES 34-7 VICTORY T7XCUSES for a ball team are wasted effort and we don't J_!/ think the Coshocton Redskins need any for their games to date but we can't help but think things would have been different if breaks had gone the other way. We don't know where the fault lies but anyone who saw the Redskins lose their first three games can recall times when gains were nullified by penalties against the Coshocton boys. Friday night was no exception. The Redskins seemed on their way to an upset and had the confident Gales badly shaken when a couple of penalties changed the picture entirely. Coshocton had scored and had stopped the Gales. The Lancaster boys were failing to show their usual confident game. Coshocton fans howled with glee when big Don Green recovered a Gale fumble on the Coshocton 33. But moans went up when it was discovered that on the same play a Redskin was slugging or kicking a Gale. The Redskins got to keep the ball but instead of being on their 33-yard line they were penalized back to their 18. Two plays later they had a first down on a pass interference ruling but the play was nullified because a Brave was using his hands illegally and another 15-yarder was handed out. Then came disaster. Forced back to their goal line, the Redskins had to punt. Jim L. Jones, standing deep in the end zone, kicked the ball out hurriedly. The ball hit the ground and the Gales apparently were going to let it roll when Rich Bradford saw that the Redskins were not there to cover the ball and took off for a touchdown. After he kicked the extra point one could see the confidence returning to the Gales an dinstead of being demoralized they were out to thump these winless upstarts who had dared sully their spotless record. ".|- .}. J- -L .1. A CTUALLY, the Lancaster victory was just a question of too much speed and manpower. Coshocton has a group of boys who give everything they have but there is not a speedster on the squad. And there just are not enough boys to supply replacements for the starters. Coach Larry Peterson could send in nine backs, all of whom were of starting caliber. In fact a couple of the subs are faster than the starters. On the line he also has several boys who can take over and do as well as their predecessors. The Coshocton replacements go all out but most of them are inexperienced and fall victims to the tactics of boys who "have been around." The Lancaster team looked very good and we can readily see why the Gales have bee n rated the best in the league. 4. 4. 4. 4. 4, For many years the Cambridge Bobcats have been ranked as weak in the COL but this year Coach Paul Kelt- net seems to have a strong team despite the fact the Cats have not won yet. Sports Editor Art Milner of the Cambridge Jeffersonian has this to say about the Bobcats: "So-called eggsperts" from schools represented in the Central Ohio league have rated the 1956 Cambridge Bobcat grid edition no better than the seventh place slot it finished in at the conclusion of last year's COL campaign. "Some have even gone so far as to predict the 'Cats' won't win a single game. They apparently base their opinion on Cambridge's past record against COL foes and the fact that the CHS contingent was defeated in its first two encounters this season. "Hogwash, maybe. From our humble observings, only Lancaster and , Marietta appear as definite powerhouses while the remaining six teams are about evenly matched and right now look to be no stronger than the Cambridge team. "True the CHS crew showed little punch against Columbus Aquinas when it dropped an opening 13-7 verdict. But the team showed as much improvement as any team ever made in one week by holding offense-minded and powerful Columbus North to a 19-13 squeaker. We'll go on record here, and we don't think we'll have to eat these words at the end of the season, that if the Bobcats display the same caliber of ball they showed against North they"will plaster more than one league foe this year." -I- -|- _|_ -i- -!Cleveland fans have been expecting Al Lopez to be fired as manager of the Indians so they rather doubt the sincerity of some of the words uttered by Hank Greenberg when he announced that the Tribe field manager had quit. It seems that Greenberg praised Lopez at the noon press conference at wihch the pilot's resignation was announced. "His record has been outstanding by any standards," the general manager said:. "Regarding his ability as a manager, I feel as I always have felt since bringing him here six years ago." Greenberg previously said several times that Lopez was the best manager in the major leagues. Greenberg said Lopez' decision was " a great disappointment to me." In announcing his resignation. Lopez said he failed to do what he had hoped to do with the Indians. "I've gone through six tough seasons," he said. "I have felt a certain amount of tension and somehow had the feeling that I didn't achieve the results I wanted." Greenberg cited Lopez' cooperation as outstanding. "Al's cooperation with the men has been ideal," he said. "Sometimes, somehow, maybe a situation will develop under which we can become associated again " Greenberg denied the delay in sitting down with Lopez had any effect on the manager's decision. Greenberg had maintained he would not discuss 1957 plans with Lopez until after or near the close of the 1956 season. Just two games, both with Detroit, remain on the Cleveland schedule. Lopez, in emphasizing he was not retiring from baseball, said he was "open to offers." Largest Opening Crowd in History Sees Bucks Run Over Nebraska Gridders PAGE 14 COSHOCTON. OHIO, SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 30, 1956 PA£E 14 Dodgers Take N. L. Lead By MILTON RICHMAN United Press Sports Writer S 1 i c ks t e r Sal Maglie and sinker-bailer Clem Labine pitched Brooklyn into sole possession of first place today by beating Pittsburgh twice, 6-2 and 3-1, in a tension-packed doubleheader which nearly resulted in the nightcap being forfeited to the Pirates. No matter what the Braves did against the Cardinals at St. Louis in a night game the D o d g e r s were guaranteed of being in first place when they play their final jame Sunday. Milwaukee and St. Louis were tied 1-1 in the llth inning'at St. Louis at press time last night. Labine recorded his 10th victory of the season and hurled his first complete game of the campaign in checking the Pirates on seven hits in the rhubarb-marked nightcap. The forfeiture threat came about in the fifth inning with Brooklyn leading, 1-0. Roy Campanella opened the frame by catching the Pirate infield napping and beating out a bunt down the third base line. Labine, attempting to sacrifice, forced Campanella at second. Umpire Vic Delmore's decision, rendered while shortstop Dick Groat was high in the air for catcher Hank Foiles' toss, so enraged the partisan crowd of 26,340 that it set up a tremendous clamor and demonstration of handker- chief-waving. The noise continued 'or nearly 10 minutes and reached such a pitch in the sixth inning .hat the umpires warned Dodger Alanager Walt Alston they "might forfeit the game" to the Pirates. The warning was relayed to the crowd over the public address sys- ;em and was greeted with boos jut it produced the desired effect. Maglie defied the "jinx" which traditionally follows a no-hit, no- run performance as he posted his 13th victory in the opener.
