The Cougars, now one and one on the season, will be taking on a club with an identical record. John Marshall won its opener, but was clobbered last Friday night by powerful Brooke County High School. Coach Jim Kessel, looking forward to future games, says his charges must come up with a sustained offense if they hope to post a winning season against stiff opposition. The Cougar defense has performed well, Kessel says. They've allowed the opposition only two touchdowns in as many games; and one of those was more of less of the "gift" variety. At the same time, the offense has looked good in spots, especially on the running of David Diehl from fullback and Quarterback Scott Walker; and an occasional well-thrown pass by Walker. The Cougar offensive tro9Ps lost a stalwart Friday night when Barry Davidson, a tackle who also played outside linebacker, was lost for the season. He had previously suffered a concussion, and a blow to the head against T-J prompted the team physician to recommend he hang up his football togs for good. Kessel said he'll set up his defenses to stop the passing attack expected to develop in John Marshall's slot offense. He pians no offensive changes in coping with the forty and fifty defenses employed by the host club. Elsewhere, Martinsburg High's Bulldogs will be on the road for the third consecutive week. They'll meet their first Tri-State League opponent, North Hagerstown, at School Stadium in Hagerstown Friday evening. Martinsburg, now 1 and 1 on the year, is feeling "high" after the 29 to 26 loss to heavily- favored Allegany High of Cumberland, Md., last Friday evening. And Coach Bob Kamensky is predicting a 9 and 1 season if Martinsburg doesn't suffer any undue injuries. North Hagerstown dropped its first game of the season to Boonsboro (Md.) High, in a non-league game. Musselman High, also 1 and 1 on the season, will host Tucker County in a game Friday evening at 8 o'clock at the Musselman High Stadium in Inwood. The Applemen, whipped by Berkeley Springs in the opener, found the formula for scoring success against Romney School For the Deaf, clobbering the visitors last Friday, 77 to 0. Hard-luck Hedgesville, with one tie and one loss, will be looking for its first victory of the year Friday evening at Hedgesville. But it will be no easy task because the opposition comes from an old and respected foe, Berkeley Springs, a winner in its only outing of the year. On the college scene, the Shepherd College Rams, 14 to 10 victors over Shippensburg State last Saturday, will be on the road, playing Saturday night Glenville, West Virginia, a 14- 12 winner over Richmond, takes on the unenviable task of playing the SonneTs of Oklahoma at Norman, Oklahoma, Saturday afternoon.

TWO NEW TENNIS COURTS ADDED AT IEETOWN PARK Jefferson County's tennis players, especially those residing in the Leetown, Middleway and Kearneysville areas, now have two more brand new regulation tennis courts that they can turn to for playing their game as two macadam courts have now been opened to the public at the Leetown Park. And the above picture shows the courts and the foursome of Mrs. John McCannuel, Debbie and Andy Swain and Judy Edwards playing as a foursome. The courts were built as the latest addition to the Leetown Park by the Jefferson Parks and Recreation Commission. C.F. Reininger, a member of the Parks and Recreation Commission and chairman of the park development phase of the commission, said this now gives the Leetown park two softball diamonds, one little league diamond, a picnic area, rest rooms and water and sewer facilities and the next continuing development of the park will be a paved parking area along with some additional picnicking space and a badminton area, and possibly a space for horseshoe pitching.
