Both clubs face important contests tonight and both find themselves minus more than one key player. The Woodland Cowboys get the homcfield advantage for :he first time this season. Right now, though, Coach Dick Harris is more worried about the injury and fullback situations. Starter Mike Hudspeth broke his arm in practice early this week, forcing some sudden patchup jobs.

LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have completed their home National -League season with attendance of 1,838,413, third high in the club's · history. A crowd of 41,345 pushed attendance to that figure Wednesday night, leaving the Cards third behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds In major league figures this year. Only in 1967, when attendance was a record 2,090,145, and in 1968, when the gate figure was 2,011,177, have crowds, at Busch Stadium exceeded the 1974 Cards total. from tailback to fullback and Greg Mohtbz back to tailback," said Harris. That shouldn't be as difficult as it sounds, though Montez is already gauged as an effective tailback and Wes has proved himself durable in the backfield. Problem is thai West has never played fullback 'We'll have to teach Joe al the fullback plays in just a day. "He plays well, but It's going to be difficult for him to adjust so quickly." While on the subject of inju ries Harris sourly pointed ou that quarterback Brett Parke was hurting from a broken nose, and first-line reserve E" Powell is limping on an injure! foot. "Boy, Tuesday was somi lousy day," recalled Harris. The biggest probem has t be Springdale Central. They'" bring one of the area's larges teams to Harmon Field tonighi "We know they run the wis bone and with their kind of siz they must have a very powerfu running game," said Harris "Our problem Is to put point on the board and stop then- n defense." Woodland has scored just two oints in two games so far, a me safety. - The problem oesnt seem to be moving the all, but crossing the goal line. We have moved the ball well n our first two/games," analy- ed Harris, "but we just keep making key mistakes when we et close to the goal line. We're oing to have to eliminate those nistakes in order toscore." IAMAY VS. SItOAM SPRINGS -Al -Ramay, coach . Gerald )ailey was singing the blues ust a'bout in harmony with the Woodland mentor. "We've got hree and maybe four starters ut' for this . week's game," noaned Daily. "Curtis Mahone s out for two weeks with a muscle bruise, Billy. Smith has ;he flu and Bobby Martin won't ilay, either." The fourth is Parting center Greg Hall, who it this point is questionable. "We've worked several people n Ihesc places before," said Daily, "so it's not oto difficult to make the changes. But, even so, it still hurts to lose thai many firsl line players." Bobby Fills will work at tailback this week in place of Maone while Jackie Eiland slips nto the fullback harness. Fills and Eiland both have power and should change Ihe Ramay offensive oullook some. The injured Mahone has good speed to the outside, but wilh Fills in the saddle its likely to be run over-people football. "Bobby is real strong," noted Daily. "Instead of speed he'll probably be trying to break tackles." The changes put plenty of pressure on quarterback Todd Darter "We'll try to use Todd more this week," said Daily. "We haven't run the option yet this year so we hope that we INTRODUCES can If the conditions are right. That will let use use wingback Darin Johnson more as a ball carrier." Siloam is a big, tough team, undefeated so far this year. "They have excellent personnel. Their players are big and strong and they beat a good Bentonville team 6-0 last week, this is going to be a real test for us," concluded Daily. In fact, its a rather important week for both Woodland and Ramay. The Cowboys have had two disappointing losses and Ramay slipped to Rogers last week. A win for the 'Pokes could turn the whole season around and a victory for the Indians could put the Trioe back in contention . for the loop crown.
