Coach Sims said with tlle excep tion of Phil Chandler who suffer ed a torn knee cartilage in prac- tice Monday evening, the rest of the boys are in very good shape physically. Chandler will not be able to make the trip to Keyser, nor, .will .he. e .an .moxe: ax t n on the gridiron this s6ason: He is now a patient in the Charles in the line up and so on the stren gth of this we go for Westminis- ter 14-7. Coach Eddie Seibert is report- ed to have good team at Ha~dley High in Winchester, but it won't be much better than Harrison- burg's Blue Streaks. Could be 21- 20 Handley. The undefeated Romney High Pioneers will make it three in a row Friday when they stop the Franklin club 26-0 on the Rom- hey gridiron. The Moorefield-Petersburg en- gagement at Petersburg. will be a nip and tuck Potomac Valley Conference battle with Moore- field getting the nod by a 13-7 score. James Wood is in a re-building program this season so Elkton could take the Colonels by an even larger margin than last sea son. Let's pick it 19-6 Elkton. The big one on Saturday in the county will be on the Harpers Ferry gridiron where the Car- dinals will be opening their 1961 season" against the Tigers. Al- though Shepherdstown has a vet eran team to pit against an en- tirely bunch of rookies which the Tigers present, we still see too much difference in the scoring. The nod will go, however, to Shepherdstown by a 13-6 score. The Shepherd College Rams go into Central West Virginia to open their 1961 season and once again it's the always tough Fair- nmnt State Teachers the Rams will be facing Saturday. Last year it was the Falcons by a 14-13 score and we are picking it the same way and by the same score this year. ClarkeCounty was hard hit by last May's graduation, but not hard enough to lose to Strasburg Higl~ Saturday night The last bounce of the ball could be for Clarke County 13-0. Other games and the possible results: Southern High over West Vir- ginia Deaf 33-0; Howard County at South Hagerstown, with the viistors taking a 21-6 decision; Beall High making it two in a row downing Meyersdale 18.6 and Gaithersburg over Boonsboro by a 36-0 score. ? Kickoff FROM PAGE 1 INJURY JINX STILL AROUND The Panthers are still being haunted by the i jury jinx. Mon- day afternoon another Panther- Phil Chandler, suffered a leg in jury Which will keep him out of action for at least ~eevral weeks and iiossibly the rest of the sea- son. Young Chandler suffered a knee injury and was taken to the Charles Town General Hospital for X-Rays and treatment At noon Wednesday it wasn't defin- ite whether a bone in the knee had ben shattered or broken or chipped, but which ever it is, Chandler will definitely be out of actian for a time. Also in the Charles Town Hospital is Charlie Meier, the promising first string quarterback of the Panthers who suffered a broken leg just a week before the season got underway. Meier underwent surgery on his leg" Saturday morning and this week was reported to be doing fine. Town General Idosp!tak but. is expected be disehdrged within the next d ys. High Pioneers exhibited against Charles Town Saturday, was one of the best to perform on the lo- cal field since the days of Burns, Dailey and Spinks)And with such a combination Romney is sure to keep those opposing lines loose against them all season.....Tommy Specht handled the ball very well m his first time out as a starting quarterback for the Panthers-not a single fumble was made during the entire game by the Panthers.. If Coach Doug Lutman and his Harpers Ferry Tigers would have had some reliable reserves to shove into ,their battle in the see end half with the Boonsboro boys they might have been able to come out of the action with a scoreless tie. As it was the Tigers starters wore down with the heat. * * * * * A RECORD AT STAKE Virginia opens it's season Sat- urday, Sept. 23 against William and Mary at Charlottesville and the game, which would usually create little interest outsde the state, really is of national import ance. Should Virginia lose it's 29th game in succession the Cav- aliers Tiff become the sole own- ers of the major college record for the most consecutive defeats. Not since V~ginia upset Duke 15-12 in the second game of the 1958 season have the Cavaliers been able tO win or even tie a game. The 28 straight losses all under coach Dick Voris equaled the record established by Kansas State in the late 1940's. LIKES ELI~O * Clemson College 1961 football brochure says it like this "ELMO LAM- Junior, 6-0, 170.11.9-40 Elk- ton, Va.--one of the fastest men in the backfield-compiled aver- age of 3.6 on 21 carries last year. played shortstop on baseball team..missed spring practice..AU American in high school...hortic- ulture major." DISTINGUISHED VI ITO ,:S While the crowd of local fans at the Charles Town-Romney game was not unusually large, the Panthers did bring out a host of dist~guished visitors in the field Of athletics. Coaches from just about everywhere In the sec- tion and area were on hand to watch the action. George Hott came down from Moorefield, Jer- ry Calhoun was here from Frost. burg; Tack Clark was on hand from Keyser; Eddie Seibert from Handley; Richard Harmison, Roy Comer. and. John Cole from Mar- tinsburg and possibly others who we. did not,see or talk with. Also covering the action was our fel- low frlend of the Fourth Estate, Russ P0tts, who has been doing a bang-up job of Writing sports for the Northern Virginia Dailey of Strasburg.
