Bruce Stapleton nun Key Games Loom As League Races Begin To Take Shape Conference races w i l l begin taking on definite s h a p e s this w e e k , with key games coming up in both Region 1-AA and Triple-A West. In 1-AA, it'll pie - A West, Springdale plays Conway and Rogers meets Southside. Both loops have excellent balance' this s e a s o n against Harrison, while Bentpn- ville lakes on Huntsville. In Tri- and none of these teams can be counted out of the title picture yet. In 1-AA, the Siloam-Harrison clash is becoming tantamount to the conference championship Harrison clash is becoming tan- championship game, and this fall looks like no exception. As Siloam head coach Bo Black · puts it, "For the past two sea'. sons, we've been in a position to · win the conference champion- 1 ship, except for our .losses to Harrison. This year we hope it'll be different. ' ' T h e y ' r e very tough people," Black says of the Goblins, and that comment, was made before he found out Harrison upset Triple-A Jonesboro 13-7 last Friday night. "They're not as large as they've been in previous years, but like everyone else they'll be bigger than us. They've got a great football player in Dean Ramsey, who plays middle linebacker and fullback." Concerning his own team, · . Black seemed to be the/ least surprised person in t h e stadium following Siloam's 26-6 thrashing of. Huntsville last week. Black · even gets a little hacked off at people who call the win a mild upset, despite Hunls- v i l l e ' s strong showing against Prairie Grove and -Mountain Home. At least the margin, if not the outcome, was somewhat unexpected, but Black has been saying all along the '. Panthers are at least as " good as last fall's 5-4 unit which got nosed out 13-10 ', by Harrison in the 1-AA · game of the year. HARD LUCK ; The Panthers had some ' · hard luck in a 14-6 loss to 1-AA rival Bentonville two ; weeks ago. with fumbles killing several scoring bids, and Black's biggest fear was a repeat of that ner- · formance. For awhile last ; Friday it looked like the Panthers might be headed ! down that same road, as | they fumbled away one early scoring opportunity | while a penalty called back ·· another. '.'. "I was disappointed that . we didn't take advantage of · some of our opportunities : tonight," Black said after the win over Hunlsville. "We did the same thing last week with Bentonville. We're just going to have to work on our goal line offense next week for Harrison." Black was proudest of his 'defense last Friday, as they held the Eagles to 141 yards total offense, much of that coming against Siloam reserves in the f i n a l , quarter. Offensively the big guns were quarterback Bobby Leach and tailback Bobby Baer. According to Black, rollout specialist Leach gets better every game at exe- · culing the option, Baer, m e a n w h i l e , reached a career high of 195 yards on 30 carries on three touchdowns. Both Leach and Baer- played mostly on defense last fall, Leach in the secondary and Baer at linebacker, but graduation losses forced some major position changes in preseason drills. In t h e case of Leach and Baer at least, they've paid off well. Black says of Baer, "He has that rare combination of speed and power you don't often find in high school backs. He has the strength to break through tacklers and the speed to outrun them." FOREIGN TURF Siloam's big disadvantage in this year's donnybrook with Harrison is they'll be playing on the Goblins' home turf. But the Panthers have had two years of being second best in 1-AA, and revenge should provide' the motivation for a possible upset. Elsewhere in 1-AA, Ben- lonville will be going after its second conference win against no losses at Huntsville, while the Eagles still cling to slim hopes for their first title bid in years. With only five teams in the loop, two league losses virtually eliminate a team from contention. That's also pretty much the case in Triple-A West, where there are six league members. Rogers already has one league loss to none for Southside. so the outcome of that clash will either leave the Mounties a contender or an also-ran. It figures to be a toss-up, although Rogers has been more impressive in recent games. / Conway is in mUich the same position as Rogers, and the ,Warnpus Cats will also be coming up against a tough foe, Springdale. The Bulldogs are 3-1 overall and 1-0 in conference play, and should keep that league slate clean playing at home, against the Cats. In District 1-A and the Ozark Conference, most of the lilts will'be of the non- league - variety, although at least one crucial match looms in the latter' loop, Gentry and Decatur. Neither team has lived up to its preseason potential, and it's becoming increasingly doubtful if either can mount a serious challenge against Farmington. - JEFFUS SLOWED T h e Pioneers were counting on Chris Ascencio and Paul Jeffus to lead their running attack, but the former moved back to Illinois and the latter has been slowed down by the same injuries that plagued him last season. Surprisingly, the 12-man Elkins Elks could wind up runner-up to Farmington, and Elk mentor William Alvarez is already expressing hopes for an at-large berth in the state tournament. . That may sound ridiculous from a school which has never had a winning grid season, but as stated in last week's column, Alvarez and his partner Ray Hamilton are backing up that optimism with results. Elkins whipped Decatur 23-14 last Friday and according to Alvarez it could have been -worse. By the way, Elkins scatback John Bunch was reported to have had only 96 yards in this paper's game story, and it should've been 196. This week the Elks will be in- .volved in one of two inter- e s t i n g non-conference games, as they lock horns with 1-A West Fork. The other Ozark -- District l-A match-up will be Prairie Grove and Greenland. Finally, Grant Hall tells me that hard-luck Fayetteville is definitely in line for an upset this week when.the B u l l d o g s play Fort Smith Northside. Grant says 14-13 sounds about right. (Sports editor's note: Grant Hall is the same clown who assured you that St. Louis would nose out Pittsburgh.) The rest of the top dozen are Rookafar specials. Last week the average dipped somewhat, with eight right in 12 picks, including two ties counted as misses.

"You never really know 'our kids are ready to play, ut we've - had a good, week," laid Davis. "I've been pleased hat our morale has improved each week,-even though we've ost three games. If we can just tay away from mistakes, we'll be in the ball game." Fayetteville opened its season yith a 14-6 win over Benlon- ville, but has since lost 20-0 to jpringfield Kickapoo, and 13-6 o both Russellville and Fort Smith Southside. "You can't ose three times without it lurling you," said Davis. You criow, when you work hard you ike to get paid. We hope to get paid in the form of a win." Fort Smith Northside brings a 2-2 record to town, having beaten Rogers 17-10 and Springdale 13-12 before closing 20-7 to 51 Dorado and 14-6 to Pine Bluff. Like Fayetteville, the Grizzlies are out of their conference race with an 0-2 mark. Coach Tom Crovella is in his :hird year at the Northside helm. His team, posted a 6-5-1 record in 1972 and a 6-4-1 mark last year. As in past years, the "irizzlies run from a wing-T on Mark Miller will start at quarterback for the fourth straight game when Arkansas opens its conference season against TCU Saturday night. Coach Broyles announced Thursday that the only change in the Razorback's lineup would find Chuck McKinncy at l e f t (ackle in place of the injured Brison Manor. Broyles said Floyd Hogan and Jon Rhiddlehooyer wo u 1 d serve as defensive captains, along with offensive captains Marsh White and Lee King. White's home town of Ravenna is only 10 miles from Fort Worth. "As far as we're concerned, it's a new season," said Broyles. "We have a reason to be ready. This is what we've been looking forward to since the spring." Broyles adde, "We'll be Beaver Level iienninnniiiiiiiniinniinninnniiniiniinniiniiiiniiniiii Beaver I/ake level stood lo, d « y at 1118.54 feet above s e a ' level. counting on 10,000 to 12,000 Razorback fans there to help us out." The Razorbacks went through light drills Thursday in a pad- less praclice session. West Fork Clouts Elkins WEST FORK--The West Fork junior high Tigers claimed a 12-2 football victory form the non-league for Elkins here Thursday evening. The victory came as a result of two first half touchdowns by frosh tailback Tracy Risley Risley vaulted 32 yards in Ihe first period and 58 yards in the second to secure both West Fork touchdowns before Ihe halftime buzzer. Neilher extra point conversion was successful Elkins drove to the West Fork three in the Ihird period but were held on downs. West Fork took possession but Risley was then nailed in the endzone by the Elks' Norman Guage for a Iwo point safety. West Fork now stands 2-i and will lest Prairie Grove nex week. Elkins is now 1-2. Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Ot. 4, 1974 9 9 For Battle With Bulldogs Northside In Town By GRANT HALL, TIMES Sports Editor 23 years beat Fort since Smith have incentive, has played us lots offense and employ a five-four- two defensive scheme. "You can tell from the films that Fayetleville has improved each week," said Crovella. "I'm impressed with the running of t h e i r fullback (Brian Ricks) and the speed of Rick Taylor. Both of our teams are coming off losses, so each of us ' should Fayetteville of close games in the past." The Grizzlies' primary threat is tailback Ira Harris, a 9.9 sprinter. He made the difference in the Rogers game by scoring twice from long range, including a pass reception ofr the winning touchdown in the last minute of play. But Harris has a b l e assistance in the backfield, with quarterback Ricky Eakin, fullback Charles Weindel and wingbacks Bobby. Westphal and Bobby Durbin. Westphal is a cousin of Razorback Bennie Westphal, who also played for Northside. Davis' Morrilton team held Jerry Eckwood in check in the state playoffs last year, but he said the situation with Harris is different: "Eckwood was The Show for Brinkley. Northside's offense is better balanced and better organized. You have to respect Weindel and the wingbacks." hrough our line of scrimmage, nit haven't scored," said Davis. 'With Harris' speed, we can't Iford to give him any daylight." FIVE RETIWIVED Northside had five returning ilarters this year, but two are inavailable because of injuries. The other three are defensive ackle Chris Caver, Defensive end Stephen Shaw and tight end lalph Ohm. Caver is 6-1 and 220. Ohm, 6-0 and 130, is a avorite target of Eakin. Crovella complimented the ·lay of Caver and nose guard Razorbacks, TCU Choose Weapons For SWC Opener lave stood out this year. Davis said the Bulldogs would make no lineup changes this veek, except that Taylor would play mostly at split end and Michael Jackson rri o s 11 y at ailback. Both players have vorked at both positions. Arhur Budd will start at wingback, with Michael Buchanan n reserve. Junior Steve Baird suffered a wrist injury against Southside and will not play. "Steve does a good job on our specialty earns, and we'll miss him," said Davis. "Keith Striegler is still out, too. He tore some leg muscles, and it just takes a long time for them to re-heal and re-slrenglhen." Kickoff time for the game at farmon Field is 8 p.m. LITTLE ROCK (AP) -Choose your weapons for the Arkansas-TCU duel: --The dropback passing and power sweeps of the pros. --The triple option offense so popular in college football. The former is TCU style; the latter, Arkansas. The two meet Saturday night at Fort Worth in the Southwest Johference opener for each. The Hazorbaeks, No. 20 in the nation, are two-touchdown favorites. TCU Coach Jim Shofner doesn't believe you can have h precision passing and op- Ions plays. He says the quarterback simply does not have to perfect both. Shofner, in his first year as head coach at TCU, teaches what he knows best, offensively and defensively. He played pro football for six years and then was an assistant coach in the wos for seven years before returning to his alma mater: COOK DOING WELL Shofner said his quarterback, Jee Cook, had adjusted well to :he dropback passing, but that he transition had been difficult for his offensive linemen. "They were used to a four- point. stance with all their .veight forward . . . a fire-out type running attack," Shofner said. "Now they have to pull to Fishing News rap, pull to lead the sweep and protect the passer." "Cook is the type passer I'm sure Coach Shofner wants him o be," said Arkansas Coach J'rank Broyles. "He goes back and sets up in the pocket. If he can't find a receiver, he'll ei- :her get out of bounds or throw the ball away. He doesn't try to scramble." The pro-type attack is the fourth offense the Razorbacks have had to prepare for in four games. Earlier, Southern Cal Coach John McKay had said that players make the difference, not formations. Broyles asked if he agreed. 95% CORRECT "He's 95 per cent correct," Broyles said. "If they know what to do, they look like good jeople. If good people don't ;now what to do they look like Dad people." Broyles said that in looking at the game film, it was obvious to him that TCU players jelieve in Shofner and what he teaches. TCU opened with a 12-3 victory over Texas-Arlington and then lost to Arizona State 37-7 and Minnesota 9-7. Shofner gradualed from TCU in 1957. The Horned Frogs have lot beaten Arkansas since 1958, but Shofner dismissed the idea of a jinx. "I'll tell has beaten TCU the /ears . .. because they're ler," Shofner said. He called the Razorbacks' tense the best he has seen this LOWER BULL Shoals Boat Dock says that smallmouth, largemouth, and Kentucky bass are hitting early on lop water.

Greenland, Cards Deadlock 6-6 G R E E N L A N D -- The Greenland junior high Pirates and the Farmington Cardinals battled to a 6-6 football tie here Thursday evening. Greg Leach scored the only Pirate touchdown in the Ihlrc period to tie the Cardinals who had put six; points of their own on the board in the seconc period. Leach finished Ihe contesi with 159 yards on 19 carries Defensively Leach managed 12 tackles while Andy Wynn added three tackles and [our assists while Timmy Thomas managec five tackles and two assists. you why Arkansas past bet- de- "They're very wise," he said. "They make you do what you don't want to do. They make you fhrow on a running down and run on a throwing down." Shofner said TCU would have to execute to crack Arkansas defense, which has given up only one touchdown in three games. Broyles was asked if TCU would ever beal Arkansas. "That's a loaded question/ 1 lie said. · Professional Baseball All Scries Bcsl-of-5 AMERICAN LEAGUE Safurday's Game Baltimore at Oakland Sunday's Game Baltimore at Oakland Monday's Game No game scheduled Tuesday, Oct. 8 Oakland at Ballimore Wednesday, Oct. 9 Oakland at Ballimore, if necessary Thursday, Oct. 10 Oakland at Ballimore, if nee essary NATIONAL LEAGUE Saturday's Game Los Angeles at Pitlsburgh Sunday's Game Los Angeles at Pittsburgh Jlonrtay's Game No game scheduled Tuesday, Oct. 8 Pittsburgh at Los Angeles Wednesday, Oct. 9 Pitlsburgh at Los Angeles, I necessary fhursftay, Oc(. 10 Pittsburgh at Ix)s Angeles, necessary But that's not to say Harris sn't the Bulldog's number one r orry. cams' "Some backs of the other have broken he Haaser, but said none of oilier Northside defenders He Helped Beat Hogs Shofner Remembers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS At least Texas Christian will lave someone on the Floor of Amon Curler Stadium Saturday nighl who can remember play- ng in a winning game against the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Unfortunately f o r d e e p Purple fans, TCU hasn't defeated the Razorbacks in 15 years. "I've been reminded of that," sa.ys Shofner, who fielded a telephone call the other day slightly out of breath from a round of jogging. "That jogging is good for your nerves .. . helps relieve the tension , . . makes you relax ... I'm going to need it." Arkansas is a H-point pick over TCU Saturday night in the only SWC game on a heav yin- lerseclional slate. While Shofner has been reminded of TCU's previous plight, he hasn't said a thing to his players about Arkansas' past plundering. "That's the way I am." Shofner said. "Our teams have played emotionally and with inspiration in every game. There's no reason for me to try to psyche them up. I know we'll get after Arkansas we'll give 'em a good game . . .

They play good defense, move the ball well on offense but have still to win a football game. The latest loss came Thursday evening at Harmon Field lo Northwest Arkansas ' junior high conference leader Rogers Oakdale 7-0. Once again it was a determined if not at limes fanatical Woodland defense that kept the game under control. Except for a third quarter touchdown drive the Pokes kept things, under control. The offense fared j M a r t y Oakdale 35 and used West on first down to p i c k up four yards.

Dodgers Have Edge-On Paper -Over Pirates PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Pirate slugger Bob Robertson had a prediction about the National League championship playoffs between his team well too, but those mysterious mistakes again kept the Woodland unit out of the end- me. Woodland took advantage of winning coin toss and ac- epted the opening, kickoff. Joe and the Los At least he about predictions: "The sports writers are going lo look at las Angeles' record and our record and don't have a chance." That record shows the Dodgers with 102 wins and 60 losses -- the best in baseball this year -- compiled in Angeles Dodgers, had a prediction say we West Division. the tough' NL The Pirates were 88-74 -- the lowest total of victories by any first-place club -- in the NL East where only one other team finished above ,5000. Those numbers didn't phase Robertson, though. "We beat Ihem here and we seat them out there during the year. In a five-game series it's a dog-eat'-dog situation and anything can happen." In Ihe regular season, Ihe Pirates . were 8-4 against the Dodgers; sweeping all six games in Pittsburgh and going 2-4 in Los Angeles. Against all clubs in the Western Division, Pittsburgh was 44-28, encoun- lering much rougher sledding in the East wilh a 44 46 mark. But there are -- some other numbers floating around that lend to favor the Dodgers. Take 19-9 and 20-6.
