Rick Taylor gave Fayetlevilie a 6-0 lead with an 86-yard punt return, but he became ill at halftime and missed all but the final few plays- of the second half. "I think Rick .might have caught a couple', of. long passes for'usjn the secpnd'half-," said Fayetteville C o a c h Doyne Davis. "But he had a touch of the flu and his legs were wobbly, so we held him out until the. end." Taylor's re- m e n t , Michael Buchanan, dropped three passes in the game. But to give credit where it is due, Russellville gouged out a relentless 14-play, 65-yard drive for the go-ahead touchdown on its'first possession of , the .second half., Halfback Jim :'Knight gained-.:36/ of. the yards, including- the requisite amount on fourth and four at the Bulldog six. : "He's a 200-pounder," said Davis.- "We had him stopped, but he fell forward."

The Prairie Grove defense forced and recovered six ' fum- iles and picked off three interceptions. Bill McClure, Rick Pershall, Mitchell Jones and Jackie Hulet were the ringleaders of that Tiger assault. Lincoln put the first points on the Scoreboard when a Prairie Grove punt misfired and put the Wolves in business on the Tiger Six. Four plays later Teddy Holcomb erupted over the goal line from one yard out. The extra point try failed,' leaving the Wolves .in front 6-0. / Prairie Grove roared right back, however, on a 60-yard Gentry Falls 7-0 To Fair/land FAIRLAND, Okla. -- Fair-land 150 rushing, but couldn't land, Okla. scored late in the develop an effective scoring first quarter after recovering a! punch against the Sooners.

Ryan McDonald did the scoring honors from 18 yards out a n ( Steve Moore added the two point conversion for an 8-6 lead REAL CLINCHER The real clincher came in thi latter stages of the third period arid_ early, in the fourth. A mis han'dled punt attempt again put Prairie Grove on defense and dangerously close to their own goal line. The Tiger defense however, rose to the occasion and kept Lincoln ponitless in four tries .from inside the Prairie Grove 10. From there the Tigers put recovered. That's when Russell- 'illo began its five-minute, five- first down scoring drive. "Hussellville ran the ball inside better than we thought :hey would," said Davis. Knight finished with 91 yards on 21 carries and halfback . Steve Womack added 53 on 13. For Fayetteville, the leaders were fullback B r i a n Ricks with 36 y a r d s on nine carries and McClelland with 30 on nine. Tailback Michael Jacfe son was held tq 13 yards on seven carries* -"-·''·"· · ··"'":* The Cyclones took the game's opening kickoff and marched from their 27 to the Fayetlevilie 21. McClelland, who played both ways for much of the way, stopped the drive by recovering f u l l b a c k Bryan McBryde's fumble. Fayetlevilie clawed back to the Russellville 39, where Ricks fumbled to Jones at the end of an 11-yard gain. When the Cyclones missed a first down by a yard,; Gibson piirited 38 yards to Taylor at the 14. " WENT WRONG WAY The wall was set up to the left, but Taylor set sail to his right and scored anyway. "He was afraid to come over to me after he scored," said Davis. 'He figured I'd bawl him out 'or going the wrong way. But Jiat's a good athlete for you. He makes things happen." Cornerback Tony Sutlerfield slocked McClelland's extra-point try, so Fayetlevilie led 6-0 with 3:28 left in Ihe first quarter. The Bulldogs threatened once more in the half, but McClelland fumbled at the end of an 11-yard gain to the Cyclone 19 and'"linebacker David Whitlow recovered. Russellville's two second- quarter possessions each ended in interceptions. Halfback Lawson Osburn got the first at the Bulldog 47, and tipped the second to Scott Mundy at the Cyclone 42. After being flagged twice for pass interference in the first three quarters, Jones grabbed interceptions at the Fayetteville 40/43 and 15 in the final period. The. Cyclones stopped Fayetteville twice on downs. Once, McClelland gained enough -for a first down at the Russellville 31, but a clip nullified the play. The other series ended when Arthur Budd failed o hold a low pass on fourlS and 13 near midfield. PUNT BLOCKED Weaver lost a fumble to linebacker Larry Atha in the fourtrj q u a r t e r , b u t Russellville ·egained its field position wheri end Bill Barton blocked and recovered a McClelland punt. Russellville's scoring drive was the only sustained march of the night, and it almost ended on the first play. Knight 'umbled after gaining 12 yards, but split end Mike Baker caught the ball in mid-air for four additional yards. Davis said linebacker John McCulcheon "reinjured his shoulder a little,", hut that otherwise the Bulldogs came out of the game intact. "Our program just isn't on its feet yet," he said. "We need a win. The kids are hurt tonight, because they know they played a good game." Fayetteville is now 1-2 for the year and 0-1 in AAA-West. Russellville is 3-0 and 1-0. If the Bulldogs win in the next tw5 weeks, it will have to be by. upset. Fayetteville is at home against Fort Smith Southside next Friday and against Northside on October 4.
