Win Jefferson High's Cougar football team was soundly beaten; Martinsburg and Musselman both picked up their second victories in three starts; Berkeley Springs stayed un- beaten ; and Hedgesville remained winless as the result of this past week-end's scholastic grid card. John Marshall throttled Jefferson, 33 to 6; Martinsburg toppled North Hagerstown, 20 to 6; Musselman edged Tucker County, 16 to 14; and Berkeley Springs walloped Hedgesville, 28 toO. Jefferson . . . after two con- secutive weeks in which the defense played well, allowing but two touchdowns in a pair of contests.., collapsed before the onslaught of a John Marshall squad and were never in the contest after the second period when the host club tallied a pair and hung on to defeat a tough Tucker County eleven, 16 to 14. The Applemen took the lead early in the game on a 61-yard touchdown spring by Randy Stewart, then added the extra point from placement. Tucker County, after recovering a Musselman fumble on the 25- yard line and, on third and two, scored when Ricky Nestor tossed an aerial to Sam Lip- scarab in the end zone, but missed the point. The next Musselman score came when Tim Buffer threw a 16-yard scoring pass to Kent Keller in the end zone. Tucker County scored again, but it was not enough. Musselman is now 2 and 1 on the season. In the remaining Eastern Panhandle contest, Berkeley Springs won its second in a row, remaining unbeaten; hapless Hedgesville again failed to post Handley High of Winchester, Va. The Hedgesville game, originally scheduled for Sep- tember 27, has now been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 11, at home. Coach .Bob Rizzo's charges didn't fare too badly in their opener two weeks ago against Thomas Johnson, at Frederick, Md., dropping an 8 to 0 decision in a tight defensive contest. But last week, it was an en- tirely different story. The Light Colonels of James Wood High School romped over the Cougars, 26 to 0, in a. game played at the Frederick County, Virginia, school. The host club scored the first two times it got the ball, in the first quarter on a 12-yard pass from Steve Cunningham to Scott Hodgson; then with Eddie Barlow capping a 25-yard drive by plunging over from the two. J Before the half ended, James Wood made it 19 to 0 when Blair Eller intercepted a Jefferson pass and returned it sixty yards for a third touchdown. James Wood's final touchdown came in the third quarter when the Light Colonels took the opening kickoff, then drove for the score with Cunningham of touchdowns, one on a run,the other on an aerial. John Marshall scored again in the third quarter, a five yard jaunt, then added two more tallies in the fourth stanza. Jefferson's only score came in the third quarter when Quar- terback Scott Walker sneaked over from two yards out. That final again, John Marshall 33, Jefferson 6. At school stadium in Hager- stown, Md., Martinsburg High's Bulldogs had little trouble beating North Hagerstown in the first Tri-State League contest of the season. Grog Albright, Bulldog fullback, shredded the center of the Hub line, piling up 170 yards rushing behind great blocking by Marfinsburg's of- fensive line. Overall, Martinsburg ground out 147 yards on the ground, and scored all three of its touchdown by the overland route. The Bulldogs might have scored more had it not been for frequent mistakes.., offensive fumbles and mishandling punts. Musselman High took up where it left off two weeks ago, a victory in three starts. Berkeley Springs, playing in the Eagles nest, nonetheless romped, to an easy 28 to 0 vic- tory. The visiting Indians capitalized on Eagle mistakes and sheer persistence to roll up a 14 to 0 lead, then added two more touchdowns in the second half to ice the victory. ICougar JV's At Home. For Pair Games football team, winless in two away-from home starts this season, will he at home for the next five games, hopeful that familiar faces and friendly turf will help them turn the tables on the opposition. sweeping end for 15 yards and the tally. Coach Rizzo said his charges, after fumbling early, never got back on the track; with fumbles and timely interceptions by James Wood throttling any chance they may have had. There were bright spots, however. Rizzo said that Chris Jenkins came in at quarterback for the injured Brian Jones and performed well. He said both Jones and Jenkins are likely to share the game-calling duties in the future. And he singled out Glen Robinson, Ralph Dingees and Scott Griffith for good defensive work. In a mid-week gme this week, the Little Cougars tackled. Loudoun County. Then, they'll remain idle until Wednesday, October 4, when they host Sports News & Views FROM PAGE 13 junior secondary leader had eight interceptions last year to tie Shepherd's single-season record in that category. 4TH IN NAIA STATISTICAL LEADERS -- Shepherd's freshman punter Ken Booe was listed in a tie for fou021 place among all NAIA punters in last week's initial NAIA statistical report. Booe was averaging 47 yards per punt after the first game. After two games, he is somewhat off his earlier average. Currently, he has punted the ball nine times for 373 yards, or an average of 41.4 yarns per fact(. PHILOSOPHY INCLUDES 'OPPORTUNISM' -- Part of Shepherd's football philosophy calls for opportunism. That is -- the defense should force opponent offensive teams into making mistakes, at which time the Ram offense takes over and capitalizes by scoria_g+ This philosophy was executed to perfection+Saturday night at GlenviUe, when the Rams converted two Pioneer fumbles into points.

The year has been good to us, and we should be thankful for the fun and fellowship we've enjoyed together. I, personally, am very happy for those players who have really "blossomed" this year, namely Pat Meehan, Pat Dopson, Susan Skinner, Audrey Buckles, Marge Fargo, and Betty Hodgson. Their game has improved quite a bit and I know they have to feel good about that.

I'hird Win Of Season Fresh from their second veteran quarterback Chuck consecutive victory of the season, the Shepherd College Rams go on the road again this coming Saturday . . . meeting West Liberty in a 1:30 p.m. contest at West Liberty. Up to this point, it has been grinding, slashing football for the most part for Coach Walter Barr's Rams. But this week, they'll he faced with defending against the West Virginia Conference's best passer, Kisner-Barb Psillas, 8-3; Marge Fargo-Eleanor Manzuk over Barb Ramey-Elaine Begeman, 9-8; Mary Elinor Peters-Peggy McCullen over Susan Skinner- Judy McGeehee, 8-4; Pearl Perkins-Audrey Buckles over Carrie Shower-June Huyett forfeit; Lynn Umscheid-Gail Smallwood over Peg Buffer- Jean Romine, 8-2: Pearl Perkins-Audred Buckles over Lynn Umscheid-Gail Smallwood 8-5; Snowden Kisner-Barb Psillas over Pat Dopson-Margie Barker, 9-7; Marge Fargo- Eleanor Manzuk over Pat Dopson-Margie Barker, 8-1; Snowden Kisner-Barb Psillas over Susan Skinner-Judy McGeehee, 8-3; Pat Meehan- Jane Clendening over Peg Butler-Jean Romine, 8-4; Barb Ramey-Eiaine Begeman over Lynn Umscheid-Gail Smallwood 8-5; Mary Elinor Peters-Jerry Orser over Pearl Perkins- Audrey Buckles, 8-6. Lobs: Scratch Margie Barker from the C singles schedule. Margie has a very sore arm and we're sorry to lose her. See you next spring, Margie! Take Carrie Showen from the B singles schedule and put Twila Carra in Carrie's place, as she will he playing as No. 10 in that group. Please check your rules and keep your rules and tie- breaker sheets with you when playing. Remember, doubles cannot be rescheduled-read your rules on that. When some has a substitute in doubles, please put her name on the board so I will know and can give her credit for playing. Hoose. West Liberty has lost two in a row, dropping a 28 to 0 decision to Clarion State two weeks ago; then being edged by West Virginia Tech last week, 35 to 29. Getting back to Hoose, who played a big part in the four touchdowns scored by the Hilltoppers last week-end, he had a great season in 1977 when he threw for 1133 yards and seven touchdowns. Just an in- dication of what the Shepherd secondary will be up against in trying to defend against the bomb. Looking back at last Saturday. Shepherd overcame a com- bination of fog, fumbles and frustration in pushing its record to 2-0, defeating Glenville State College 16-0 at Glenville. An inch of rain prior to game time, fog so dense that visibility was less than 30 feet, and numerous fumbles on the part of both teams led to a low-scoring and frustrating encounter. Shepherd was its usual op- portunistic self, converting two of three Glenville fumbles into points. Led by sophomore fullback Jim Pope, who was filling in for injured All- American Gregg Warfield, the Rams scored nine points in the second quarter and seven more in the fourth period. A fumble recovery on the Pioneer 12 set up a 25 yard field goal by Shepherd's Gary Sherman for the Ram's first score. Later in the second quarter, Mike Ford returned a short Glenville punt 13 yards, giving the Rams possession on the Pioneer 27. In five plays, Ken Russell went in from 13 yards out, giving Shepherd a 9-0 halftime lead. In the fourth period, Pope, who led all rushers with 122 yards in 28 carries, scored on a five yard run after the Rams had recovered a fumble on the Glenville 11. Shepherd again utilized its fullback-oriented rushing at- tack, accumulating 215 yards on the ground, compared to 130 for It he Pioneers. The Rams, who also had difficulty holding on to the football, fumbled it away five times, on three occasions inside the Glenville 10. The Pioneers were led in rushing by halfback Van Vaughn, who had 91 yards on 20 carries. Behind Pope for Shepherd, halfback Wayne Wilson carried 13 times for 53 yards. "We played an excellent game defensively," commented Shepherd head coach Walter Bart. "We were very poor on offense," he added. "A football team of our caliber should U have made some of the we committed," Barr referring to the fumbles.
