Dave Woodman Steps In Ramay At Home Against Bentonville, Woodland On Road Versus Huntsville By BILL KENISAN 01 The TIMES'Sports; Staif The Ratnay Indians get a chance to bask in the mercury vapor light of Harmon Field f o r . t h e first time in two weeks as they take on spunky Bentonville in a 7:30 contest. The Woodland Cowboys, however, will travel out of town, looking for their first victory of the year, to play Huntsville. It's sort of a reunion week for the TrRie. Head coach Gerald Daily will have the services oi tai|back Curtis Mahone for the first time in a couple of weeks. And Gregg Hall and Billy Smith will return to active duty. The Indians will use Mahone at tailback and will switch Bobby Fills over to -wingback. "Bobby did an excellent job for us with Curtis out," said Daily. "We decided that -if we played Bobby at wingback we could add , several, options to our r u n n i n g . attack. With the both of them in there we can always rest one of them." T h a t puts Darrin Johnson, normally the starting wingback, out of the lineup but not out of mind. "Wo think Darrin is an excellent athlete. What we're really impressed with : is the fact that you can play him just a'bout anywhere. He's been getting a little nervous starting though so we thought we'd-keep h i m - o u t at the first and see if that helps. He'll play quite a bit though," said Daily. Benlonville doesn't have the shiny record but Daily sees a potentially. good team there anyway. "They've had their problems. Seven of their key players just moved away this Texarkana Favored To Keep Record Intact; Wampus Cats Picked Over Fayetleville By HARRY KING LITTLE ROCK CAP) - Texarkana's record against Arkansas teams faces a severe test Friday night. Texarkana has not lost to an Arkansas team since Robert E. "Swede" Lee arrived as head coach last year. The .Razorbacks rolled to a 13-0 record and the state championship in 1973. Texarkana opened the 1974 season with a 14-0 loss to Texas High, but has since won four straight. The Razorbacks, ranked No. 5 this week, . take on Hot Springs No. 10, Friday night at Texarkana. The winner will .earn the fa- . vorile's role in AAA-Central. Texarkana is 2-0 in league play and Hot Springs, winner of three straight league titles until last year, is 1-1 in the conference. Hot Springs has lost two straight--a rarity since Bobby Hannon took over as the Trojans' head coach. The streak · may reach three. T E X A R K A N A 14, HOT SPRINGS 13. West Memphis and Little Rock Central will decide the No. 2 ranking in the state Friday night at West Memphis. West Memphis of AAA is No. 2 Central of AAAA is No. 3 and only eight points separated the two teams in the balloting. Neither has lost this year. West Memphis managed lo tie Jonesboro 10-10 and Centra' was held to a 0-0 tie by Forrest City. Central has scored three narrow victories and this may be the week the string runs out.
