Bruce Stapleton Rerryville, Gravette Look Like Class Of 1-A North With 17-10 Win Over Rogers Grizzlies Escape In District 1-A North, two- w,ay races are nothing new ·nd this fall looks like more of.the same, with Berryville a n d Gravette again squaring off for top honors · in their annual showdown Nov. 1. AH - district performers ·bound in the Gravette camp, with no less than six all-stars among 16 letter- meh returning from l a s t year's district runners-tip. Only two players.were lost from that team. E v e n coach Bernard McAbee, now in his 25th year at Gravette, has been forced to concede the Lions are in a good position to end Berry vi lie's 3-year reign in 1-A North. Among the top hands in McAbee's Lion den are quarterback Gil Eaton and Eddie Scantlin, tackle Lester Sau'nders, center Danny Boling, linebacker Hank Kilgore and utility man Bruce Wilbanks. Unfortunately for Gravette, however, the Berryville Bobcats are also improved for 1974. The Bobcats have two outstanding running backs in Bo Gustin /and Bob Harris, and a solid line spearheaded by all-district nominees Tommy Ginn, Dean Lee and Terry Youngblood. Aside from Gravette and Berryville, the other four teams in 1-A North (Marshall moved to another league) all rate about even, and any of the four could conceivably knock off the two front-runners on a good night. LINCOLN ON RISE Lincoln may be in the best position to turn that trick. The Wolves have an excellent inside-outside running combo in fullback Teddy Holcomb and halfback Danny Butler, and an experienced line anchored by center Branon Thiesse, guard Wes Reed, tackle Anthony Canada (all 257 pounds of him) and linebacker-quarterback P r e s t o n Brock. Down the road in Prairie Grove, the Tigers hope to start making their presence felt in their third year of Class A competition: But PG head coach Vol Eads continues to have quarterback problems, which he hopes to solve with, sophomore signal-caller Aaron Smith. The heart of the Prairie Grove offense, however, will be workhorse fullback Jackie Hulet, a pile-driving 185-pounder who'd just as. soon run over people as around them. Hulet and the Tigers will "get a stern test in their first outing against Farmington, which was last defeated 24 games ago by Prairie Grove. Another bank of Tigers, operating out of West Fork, will be getting their first taste of 1-A action this fall, after moving up from the Ozark loop. West Fork boss Alvy Early figures the Ben- gals may have gotten stuck with a bad year to make that kind of move, with nearly everyone in the conference improved over 1973. Early, meanwhile, claims the Tigers are "weaker than we were last year," when they went 8-2 and finished second to state champion Farmington. Before the start of that campaign, you'll remember, Early coined that immortal line, "I'm glad we have our punter back; we'll need him." The Tigers don't have that kicker this year, although Early claims they need him worse than ever, which under the double reverse football hustler rule means that West Fork will be a factor in 1-A this fall. PROMISING BACKS The backfield picture is especially bright for the Tigers, with better than average seniors returning in quarterback Rex Sparkman, a n d halfbacks Duane Dunkle and John Schuster. The line is bolstered by tackle Roland Rollins, an all-district choice last season, and c e n t e r Sani McCorkle. Bringing up the rear in 1-A North is Green Forest, and the Tigers may be hard- pressed to improve on last fall's 5-5 mark -- their best record in years. In Region 1-AA, things are shaping up for a general revival of the league's sla- tus, with prospects for the a $50,000 first prize. Only, the winners best balance in recent memory. The two-team race theory, in fact, could be in serious jeopardy, and not even my 500mm "Hook- afar" crystal ball Is adequate to offer an accurate appraisal at this point. The Harrison Goblins have been a perennial power in 1-AA since Rogers' departure three years ago, a n d although they may be better in 1974, Bentonville, Huntsville, Siloam Springs and Mountain Home .may have out-bettered the Goblins. Bentonville and Mountain Home look especially improved. A big reason for Bentonville's optimism is.fullback Scott Bailey, who may be in line for all-state honors this .season. The Tigers have other top-notch backfield returnees, plus a hefty offensive line to lead the charge. RESURGENCE Mountain Home is in I h e midst of a football resurgence of unprecedented proportions. Not so long ago, the Bombers were in the throes of a losing streak which extended through two seasons and part of another. Last fall, they pulled themselves up to .5-5 arid this time around new head coach Bill Spratt is talking about a conference championship. That may be a bit ambitious, but with the new balance in 1-AA, anything can happen. Both Siloam Springs and Huntsville also figure in the picture, and could be contenders before everything is settled in November. Siloam was hardest hit by graduation, through, and the Panthers may have trouble bettering their 5-4 record and second place 1-AA finish in 1973. Among the standouts in the Panther camp are linebacker Bobby Baer, center Gene Collins, tackle Jess Goodman and halfback Junior By num. Huntsville looks for b i g improvement on Its 4-ti showing in 1973. Under new coach Tom Tice, a former Huntsville star himself several years ago, the Eagles return enough personnel to rank as a strong dark horse candidate for 1974. Top returnees include fullback Ray Bouschard, all-district at linebacker last season, end Kerry McAllister, who broke a hand and missed most of the 1973 campaign, and defensive .standout Kim Tipton. i - In case you lost track of all the coaching changes among area B, A and AA teams, here's a rundown on the new mentors: Farmington -- Charlie Phillips, Gentry -- John Wilkerson, Decatur · Gene King, Elkins -- W i l l i a m Alvarez and R a y H a m i l t o n , Winslow -- Loyd Bradley, Lincoln -- Mryl Dobbs, Green Forest -- Gene Hooks, Mountain Home -Bill Spratt, and Huntsville -- Tom Tice.

Just over a minute remained when Northside lined up to punt on fourth and 10 from ils 23-yard line. Bu{ in making an all-out attempt to block the punt, Rogers roughed the kicker. Given new life at its 38, Northside scored in one play. Tailback Ira Harris, a 9.9 sprinter, for a Rick Eakin pass and turned it into a 62-y»rd touchdown play that meant a 17-10 victory for Northside. What hurt, from Rogers' standpoint, was that Mountie defensive back Dan Hughes had diagnosed the pass to Harris and timed an interception attempt perfectly. But the ball somehow went through his hands and into Harris'. streaked down the left sideline Golf World Series Opens Without Nicklaus AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- For the first time in five years, Jack Nicklaus is missing from the select, four-man group of the world's major Utleholders who make up the field for the World Series of Golf. The two day, 36-hole affair begins Saturday with South African Gary Player, the Masters and British Open champion, U.S. Open king Hale Irwin, PGA champ Lee Trevino and host pro Bobby Nichols chasing of the game's Big Four tournaments-the British and U.S. Opens, the Masters and PGA -- have automatic entry into this event that ranks as the game's most elite. With Player sweeping two ol the qualifying tournaments, hometown hero Nichols -- who combines'his duties as head pro at the host Firestone Country Club with a heavy tour sched- The game figures to be competitive, and it was. Rogers, loaded with size and experience in the line, is a top contender in AAA-West while Northside has been on the wane in AAAA lately. Rogers came back from a 103 halftime deficit to dominate the' Grizzlies in the final two periods. Until Harris' reception, the Mountaineers had allowed Northside just 36 yards in the second half. TWO BIG PLAYS In fact, Harris accounted for 142 of the Grizzlies' 226 total yards in just two plays. On the :irst play from scrimmage in ;he second quarter, he broke for an 80-yard touchdown thai gave his team a 10-0 lead. The rest of the night, Rogers held the 167-pound senior to 54 yards in 20 carries. His 80-yar- der gave him a total of 134 yards rushing, and adjusted his average from 2.7 to 6.4. After Harris, the next leading ground- gainer for Northside was fullback Charles Weindel with 14 yards in five carries. Northside jumped on top in the first quarter after Rogers through a defensive holding penalty, so Cooper tried a 33- yard field goal with 2:08 left in the half. He cleared the crossbar by inches. Rogers tied the game with a 72-yard touchdown drive that had a little of everything. It started late in the third quarter after tackle Greg Comfort recovered a fumble at his 28/ The Mounties hurried to the 50 on a seven-yard run by quarterback Kim Gregory and a piling-on penalty. Then on third and seven, tight end Rusty White made a great catch at the 40 for the yards he needed. The next crisis came on fourth and one at the 31, and it deepened when Rogers jumped offside. But during a timeout with 9:27 left, the Mounties decided to go for the six yards. Split end L.C. Smith juggled Gergory's pass at the 20, but hung on for the first down. Linebacker Eddie Masner then turned ball carrier, bulling to the 13 on second down and into the end zone on third and three. He was preceded into the end zone by a tackier he met and toppled at the three-yard line. With 7:54 left, Cooper kicked the extra point that tied the score 10-10.

After Harris' long run, the Grizzlies recovered a Joe Smith fumble at the Rogers. 43 and threatened a runaway. But the worm turned on third and one at the Rogers 11. There, for some reason, Northside decided to pass. Eakin was thrown for a nine- yard loss, putting Sawyer back far enough that his 36-yard field goal try veered wide to the right. came within a whisker of drawing a roughing-the-kicker p e n a l t y against Northside. Cooper was leveled after he kicked, but the Grizzlies deflected the ball and thus avoided an assessment. After Harris scored with 47 seconds left, Rogers worked on flea-flicker play to the Northside 41. But on the game's last play, Danny Beam cut in front of Gregory to intercept at the since we were 14." The two big-serving American left-handers will meet Saturday in the semifinals of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships, a crown neither has won. Newcombe, 30, and Rosewall, 39, meet in the other. They first met in 1968 after each already had taken the first of two U.S. titles. In the women's semifinals today, Connors' fiancee, Chris Evert, the Wimbledon winner and top' seed, tries her luck against Evonne Goolagong, the 1971 Wimbledon champion Chris has yet to beat on grass. And Billie Jean King, the No. 2 seed, was g i v e n another chance against Julie Heldman. Mrs. King defaulted to her American foe last year in the third set. With three Americans and an Australian left in the women's bracket, an all-American final was a possibility. But the men's final was assured of bein duel between the two - t e n n i s duel betwen the two lenni powers: the United States and Australia.

Johnson toured the construction site beside Riverfront Stadium with officials of the Cincinnati Hockey Club Corp. Tuesday. The firm, whose Cincinnati Stingers will play in the World Hockey Association in 1975, is financing construction of the arena. When completed in June, 1975, the arena will seat 16,804. More seats will be available with bleachers, Johnson said. The Stingers are assigning their players to other WHL clubs or minor league teams until the arena is ready. The Stiirgers said Thursday they have signed two college ;oalteanders and assigned them to the Vancouver Blazers training camp. They are John Kiely, from the University of Vermont, and Ned Yetten, from Boston College.

LR Parkview McClellan G. deflected off Beam on the final play of the first half. Rogers had 11 first downs to Northside's eight, but trailed 226 to 197 in total offense. The Grizzlies led 145-120 in rushing and 81-77 in passing. Kirn Bland averaged 42.7 yards on three punts for Northside, 10 yards more than Cooper averaged on six punts. Ten Northside points were traceable to kicking-game errors by Rogers. That upset Mountie Coach Gary Bond, but he emphasized, "Our kids played their hearts out. They played the best they could play. I was really proud of the way we came back in the second half." Asked if he had had misgivings about gambling twice on fourth down, B o n d said, "Yes I did, but you .saw at the end why I did it. Northside is. so explosive with Harris that they can score from anywhere. I thought they were more likely to score that way than by driving the ball on us. We just didn't want to give up the ball.."
