The Tigers came back and made a desperate effort to again turn the tide of battle in their favor when they took to the air~ and clicked on a long pass from quarterback Butch Hall to the speedy halfback Mickey Jack~n. I The play went to Shepherds- town's 24 yard line. And had it not been for one Cardinal defend er it would have gone all the way for a score. After this play the Cardinal defense which had prey ed tough for the Tigers all after. noon, stiffened and held the Tig ers for downs. Scored Early Shepherdstown, playing their opening game of the 1961 season hit paydirt first early in the first frame when Terry Sarra ripped off a 26 yard run and Jerry Boyd broke loose for 40 yards. The Car dinals moved 73 yards in five plays for the tscore, with Boyd scoring from the one yard line. His attempt for the extra point via placekick was blocked by Nap per. In the second period Mickey Jackson, who is proving to be one of the best defensive players and hardest running ball carriers in the area, put Harpers Ferry back into the ball game when he pick. ed off Dave Derr's toss 'out into the flat, and scampered 36 yards to score. Larry Osbourn blocked Sonny Longerbeam's place kick attempt and~the score stood at 6-6 until midway of the third period. A clipping penalty put the Shepherdstown boys deep in their own territory in the third period. Then when the Cardinals attempted to punt on the fourth down a bad pass from center went sailing over Boyd's head and into the end zone. The ball eluded Boyd's desperate attempts to retain it and roiled out of bounds for a safety to put Har- perry in front 8-6. Although Shepherdstown held a wide edge in the game statis- tics, chalking up 184 yards rush- ing to 63 for Harpers Ferry, it was a hard fought and close game all the way. The entire Shepherdstown line played well on defense with Os- bourne and Paxton Marshall lead ing the way. Boyd and Sarra also played fine defensive games in backing up the Cardinal line and both boys along with Jenkins looked good offensively. For Harpers Ferry it was fine play of Lanham, Petrueci and Longerbeam which led the Tigers on the defense. Mickey Jackson proved to be the workhorse for the Tigers offensively.

High footballers, last week, the Boonsboro High gridmen lost temporarily the services of their outstanding quarterback, Tommy Sullivan who suffered a painful, though not serious groin injury. Coach Dwight Scott, said Sullivan will have to be off of his feet for a f0w days and out of practice for a week. But Coach Scott said fortunately "we have an open date this weekend and that will give Sullivan and some of the other boys who came out of the game with bruises and bumps, a chance to recuperate. Coach Scott said this will give him time to get his boys retdy and up for the Charles Town Panthers, their next opponent. 40 O*VT, * * ONE ON INJURED LIST James Wood High School in Winchester has we guess been about as fortunate this season football wise as any scholastic squad in the area. They had 40 boys to report for football at the opening of the preseason prac- tice and this week they still have 40 boys working out daily with not a single boy on the injured list. Their training season has been a remarkably fortunate one because it's seldom that any team on any level can reach this stage of the football season without some player injuries. And a former Charles Town High and Shepherd College foot ball star, George Willie Waiters now assistant football coach at James Wood High is being given some of the credit for this remar kable achievement. Coach Wai- ters and head Coach Manuel have according to reports, worked the boys into shape gradually trying to keep a pace which will permit the younger and less experienced boys to bear up under the heat The heavily favorite Keyser Itigh footballers soundly troun- ced the smaller and less expericn ced Charles Town High Panthers Friday afternoon by a 34-0 score on the Ptomac State College grid iron in Keyser. But it took some Panther fumbles and bad passes for the Mineral countians to win by such a wide margin. The Tornadoes cut a wide swath through and over the Pan ther line in the first and second quarter, and then after being slowed down in the third period picked up steam and rolled again in the final phases of the game. Coach Kenny Sims' Panthers, did, however, turn in a better per formance defensively than in their opening encounter and with a few of the breaks going with them instead of against them, would have given the Tornadoes a real battle of it. With only two experienced players in their offensive line-up Tom Doyle and Steve Willingham the Panthers could not muster any offensive punch at any, time during the game. As a matter of fact only once in the entire ball game did Charles Town roll to a and pressure. * * * * * WVU, SHEPHERD STARS .

The Keyser team started off like a bulldozer, pushing the Charles Town line backward with power drives and scoring in ten plays. It. was Cox who slanted off tackle for the first score of the ball game and when Mel Evans' place kick for the extra point hit the goal posts it was 6.0 for Key- set. Then in the early stages of the second period after the Panthers had stopped another Keyser touchdown drive they fumbled on their own 16 and this set the stage for the second Keyser score with fullback Chuck Bradfield carrying the ball three consecut- ive times and going in for the score from the two yard line. A- gain the try for the extra point failed. i About midway of the second period Charles Town was pushed deep into their own territory by a Keyser punt. After three suc- cessive losses Steve Willinghamc was hit in the end zone by big Ed Hawkins, Keyser end for a safety to make the score read 14-0 for Keyser. Just before the half ended Cox intercepted a short wobbly pass which Panther quarterback Tom- my Specht attempted to throw, and he wound upon the 15 yard line with the ball. Condon then passed to Biser on the nine yard line and Condon passed to Payne on the four for a first down. On the next play, a Taylor to Biser pass was good for the score. This time Mel Evans hit on the try for placement and it was 21-0 for Keyser.
