Or a least it was not their shining hour as the:/ had hoped it would be when they invaded ' Hamp~Jlire County to open their 1966 season by providing the op- position for the Hampshire County High Trojans, who were ~flso opening their season. The Panthers wont, and they saw, but they didn't conquer, instead they suffered a 254) defeat at the hands of the Trojan horses. But for more than a half of the battle they gave Coach Roger Parker's Trojans a lot of worries. But then Parker had his boys switch their attack from land to the air, and that was When the Trojans actu~ly caged the Panthers, Coach Doug Lutman's debut as the new Charles Town High head mentor was not the rousing suc- cess he had hoped it would be, but nether did his Panthers make R a dismal disappointmen~ him, nor their large crowd ft~ardent followers who made trek over the mountains to Remind, Haml~hire County drew first scoring blo0d-in the battle, hitt- ing for a touchdown midway the first period on an eight:yarn rt~ on a bootleg play by Trojan quarterback Steve Davis. The try for the extra point was, missed. The Panthers didn t loose hear# by this turn of events, however, and they came on strong, so strong in the a~ond quarter they completely outplayed the Trojans and for most of the time had them backing up into their own territory. But early in the third period, the Panthers, saw a missed block and a bad pass from center net only stop a goalward drive they had initiated in the second-half kick-off, b~ cost them the hall on their own two-yard-line. Two plays later a second Hampshire County touchdown, with Jack Wright, a big sophonmre reserve q~e~back, sc~ing from the two-yard line.

But on the very next play Mike Timbrook intercepted a Panther aerial and the offensive spark was snuffed OttO. After this turn of events, Wright again started filling the air with passes and he completed five, one going to little Gary Fuller for the fourth and final Trojan tot~chdown. Then with both the Hampshire County and Charles Town line-ups sprinkled heavily with reserves, Charles Town kicked up another His Varsity Debut Was Auspidous One GLENN HINTON Undoubtedly one of the most outstanding rookies in either the Charles Town or Hampshire Cou- brief offezisive punch, moving for ~ line-ups for last Friday two first downs, but again a night's gr~d battle, was Glenn Panther fumble stopped the, the 155-pound 5-10 soph- drive, more halfback, whose Varsity de- While it was a frustrating even- but for the Panthers was an auspi ing for the Panthers in that they cious one. Glenn was not only lost the bail five times on ~umb- les, and pass interceptions, and but he they made numerous other mis- and p~..atching takes, it was also an encouraging offense. one in many respects. It brought to light several potential new stars on the Panther Club in Leeds Corbin, Glenn Hinton, Donnie Spech~ ,and Alex: Dole- man. Corbin, a rookie quarter- back, turned in an outstanding job, both in passing and directing the team; Hinon proved to be one of the scrappiest and most explosive ball players on the field; Specht showed that even though a rookie in the Panther defensive line, he is going to be hard to handle this season; and Alex Doleman, showed on at least two differerrt occasions, that if he can get by that line of scrim- ma~, he is going to be hard to stOp. The action favored Hampshire Coum'y in three quarters, with Charles Town dominating the play tn the second period. While Hampshire Cou~y had a wide edge in the net amoun of yard- age gained, 198 to 126, the Troj- ans picked up 134 yards in the air by completing eight of 14 passes, while Charles Town, who lacks experienced pass receivers, hit for only five of 20 passes good for 49 yards. Physically the Panthers came through the b~ttle in very good shape and al'l the boys should be ready for the next battle Friday nigttt, barring unforseon injuries in 'the practi~e drill~ this week. The vRal statistics on the game favored Haxnpshire County, but no~ by much, at least not as much as the score might indicate.

Although head cavch Harry Barker lost some good boys as ,a result of last June's graduation, there is not to~ much grid gloom a~ound the West Congress street school these days, because when the eali was sounded last week for candidates for the 1966 squad, among the crop of some 58 boys w~ho reported were 11 experienced lettermen from the fine 1965 team. Head Coach Barker and his assistant Norman Howell, must feel some real relief in knowing tl~t they have 11 boys to use as a firm and experienced nucleus for the Junior High Varsity. Coach Barker said tiTis week that he had cue the squad to 34 boys so as to hove more time to get his team ready for the opening game set for Wednesday night, Sept. 14, at 7:30 on the Charles Town High field. The little Panthers will play an eigh~ game schedule this season, meeting such other schools as Musselman, Harpers Ferry, North High of Martinsburg, Berkeley Springs and Handley. The line will be heavier and more experienced this season than last since seven of the letter men back are linemen, weight figures released by Coach Barker strew. Coach Barker said it now ap- pears that he will, however, have to use a new an inexperienced boy at quarterback, with Walter Lloyd a 157-pound 7th grader now having the inside track for this post. He is one of the fifteen 7th graders who will be on the.Junior ~igh Varsity. And he is the only seventh grader who to date, has been able to make the starting line-up. WILL BE SEEING ACTION Other backs who wiR he seeing a lot of action are Dewey Whit- more, MarShall Williams, Lawson McIvor and George Fletcher, all veterans, all 8th graders.

Alvin Brown, a~c 233 pounds and Ronnie Marcus a.t 160 ,at the tackles slots; Steve Bennett, and Donald Pierson, b~th ~t 140 at the guards. The center will be of course be the veteran Dean Viands, who tips the scales at 197 pounds. Other veterans hack from last year's team are: Clayton Anders, James Barr, Wayne Barren, who is expected to see a lot af service at tackle; Allan Brady, Gary Gray who is also expected to see some line action; Peter Hills, Bruce M~ler, Calvin Stokes, all 8th grad- er$. 04~hers on the squad, all 7th graders are: Doug Allara, Steve Clendening, David Dorsey, David G~assford, Dennis Magaha, John M~conoughey, Grey Mills, Mac Nichols, Jerry Rhodes, Frederick Russell, Bruce $inghas, James Walker, Wayne Walker and Jam- es Wiltshire.

The fine defensive play of the~ Harpers Ferry line, made i~c poss~ ible for their new head Coach Howard Jacl~son to make his coaching debt~t at least a partially successful one, since R was an all veteran team which he sent his Tigers out to face. Both teams showed such de- fensive strength that the game proved to be strickly a defensive battle. As a matter of fact the two teams were so evenly match- ed that only once did either team seriously threaten to score.

In this drive the Tigers moved 30 yards before their offensive push bogged down It was a 25-yard pass play from Quarterback Lee BaUenger to end Kenny Fauble, that proved the key play in this drive. While the Tigers failed to cross the Strasburg goal line, they did come back to Jefferson County with the best in the statistics which showed Coach Jackson's boys had chalked up a total of 67 yeards rusing as compared to 40 for Strasbtwg. The Tigers also had 41 yards passing to 18 for Strasburg despRe the fact Lee Bal,lenger completed only three of nine pa~ses. Lorne Pope ,the big veteran tackle on the Tiger defensive team, was far the defensive star of the game, while ends Charlie Fox and Chip Taulton, also turn- ed in fine defensive efforts.

WRENTCHING OUT THE WINNERS .... By .... Don Rentch The schoolboy football pot has once again been brewing all week and so once again we approached the three wRChes to get them to tell us what they could see among st the boiling and smoking brew in the gridiron ket-tle. And after grumbling a bit because their predictions of last week were not more accurate than a 1-1-1 ave- rage, they ventured forth with these predictions of things to come on the football battle fields this week-end. WRCh No. 3, who missed on her predictions on the Charles Town ~igh-Hampshire County games last Friday, said she thought she could do better this week, but that wCnat she hod to say would not be to the taste of the Oharles Town High Panthers, and their loyal followers. Well, what is it you have to say thane they won't like we asked. Well all I can see for the Panthers she said, is another defeat and it could be by a 20-6 score. Now what's cookin for Mussel- man and Hancock Friday after- noon we asked? Well she replied let me run down Wh~t I see in the botlin~g cauldron for the rest of Friday's action.
