12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1978 SPORTS NEWS and VI EWS By DON RENTCH BOB VAUGHN THE WINNER -- Robert (Bob) Vaughn of Martinsburg, one of top golfers in the section and area, has made it to the cham- pionship round of the Seniors Championship of the United States Golf Association. Vaughn bounced back from a triple-bogey 7 on the 8th hole of the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club course Tuesday, Sept. 19 to capture the medal in the Maryland qualifying round for the national seniors play to be staged October 2-7 on the Pine Tree Golf Club course at Delray Beach, Florida. The 56-year-old Vaughn, who plays mostly out of the Opequon Golf and Country Club near Mar- tinsburg, failed to qualify by one stroke in his first attempt in the seniors tournament staged last year on the Woodmount Country Club course. But Tuesday he registered scores of 40-39 for an over-all 79 over the rugged 6,489 yard, par 72 hole Garrison course. With some 30 players shooting for the five open spots in the cham- pionship round of play, Vaughn was joined by Lon Redman of the Columbia Country Club who shot an 80; Don Murphy of the Congressional Club, who shot rounds of 38-42 for an 80 total; Robert Morris of the Argyle Club, with scores of 38 and 42 for an 80; and Arthur Hager, Jr., of Prince George's County, who shot an 81. Playoffs determined the alternates, with Jim Johnson, a former Seniors Champion of the Maryland State Golf Association coming from the Fountain Head Club in Hagerstown, Md., getting the first spot as he parred the first hole and shot a 40 and 42 and for an 82 total. Vaughn had a birdie, a 20-foot putt at the 14th hole, and he also contributed some other fine shots to win. PHOTO FINISH NIGHT -- The Charles Town Races will offer another first as they begin distributing a "Racy" poster of Miss Charles Town to help promote Photo Finish Night on Saturday, September 30. Rather than offering the usual race horse posters as many race tracks have done to promote a special event, The Charles Town Races has chosen a poster of a lady jockey dubbed "Miss Charles Town," to be given to the first 5,000 fans entering the track on Photo Finish Night. In addition to distributing the posters, Charles Town will host a Photo Finish Contest and provide free photos of patrons having a "Good Night At Charles Town." Throughout the evening several young ladies will be wandering the stands taking pictures of Charles Town patrons and offering the snap- shots, free of Charge, as an added momento of Photo Finish Night. KICKING EXTRA POINTS -- Warren Miller, who was a fine punter and place kicker for the Jefferson High Cougar footballers for several seasons, is now doing the place kicking for the Potomac State Catamounts who are now 1-1 in Conference play and 1-2 over-all. Last Saturday night the Catamounts took the opening kickoff from Chowan College and drove 76 yards in 14 plays for a touchdown. Then when Warren Miller place kicked the extra point the Catamounts held a 7-0 lead. But that lead was short lived as Chowan came right and scored touchdowns on it s first two'possessions of the ball and then went on to soundly trounce the Cats by a 49-7 score. SCOTT WALKER'S LEG NOT BROKEN -- Contrary to first thoughts and first reports Scott Walker, star quarterback for the Jefferson High Cougars, did not sustain a broken leg in the Jefferson High, Loudoun County grid battle, played in Leesburg, Va., last Friday night. Coach Jim Kessel said Monday Scott did sustain a sprain which may or may not keep him out of the line-up this Friday night when the Cougars tangle with the James Wood High Colonels of Winchester, Va., coached by Jerry Kelican, former Charles Town High grid star. , FRESHMAN PUNTER EXCELLING FOR RAMS -- Shepherd freshman punter Ken BoDe has proven to be a vital part of the Rams' foot- ball machine. BoDe has punted the ball 18 times for 769 yards -- an average of 42.7 yards per punt which should Place him among NAIA punting leaders this week. Last week against West Liberty, 230 pound BoDe filled in at noseguard for injured starter Larry Jehle. In that game he was in on three tackles and had a quarterback sack. SHEPHERD DEFENSE AMONG STATE LEADERS -- Opponents have found their rushing attacks useless against the Shepherd defense. After three games, the stingy Ram defense is yielding an average of only 82.7 yards rushing per gam e and 1.9 yards per carry. (Turn To Page 13) James Wood -J ,],fferson Will Clash Friday Night IMartinsburg At Home, Third Loss. Charles Town Jr. H G LADIES' GOLF igh Berkeley Springs In IBid For Fourth Win There's nothing like a win and some extra good news to build up the confidence of a football team. At least that's what Jefferson High School's head coach, Jimmy Kessel, hopes. Last week, the Cougars, despite numerous mistakes and i several key injuries, defeated i Loudoun County, 21 to 19, for the second victory of the year against as many losses. During the game there was bad news! when the number one quar- terback, Scott Walker, was removed from the contest at the start of the second half with what appeared to be a severe ankle injury. Early this week, the good news, it was just a sprain. So, with these two plusses, Jefferson is hack home this Friday evening at 8 o'clock, hosting Jerry Kelican's James Wood Colonels out of Win- chester, Virginia. On this you can depend, James Wood, despite a 1 and 3 record, will be no pushover. Like Jef- ferson, the Colonels like to exercise power in their offensive attack; and are always recognized for fine defensive performances. Coach Kessel says that at this point in time he's going to start his sophomore quarterback, Chester Ott, who came into the Loudoun County game last week and performed in most "ac- ceptable fashion. This despite the fact that Walker may be able to play, and may want to. But Kessel would prefer to protect his number one signal caller as much as possible, saving him for some future contests. And, as for the game plan, it's going to remain the same, stay on the ground, control the football, try to get ahead and stay ahead, says Kessel. Elsewhere, Musselman High's Applemen will return to action after a one-week layoff. They'll trek to Southern for an eight o'clock game on Friday evening. The Applemen, after losing their initial game of the year to Berkeley Springs, have scored consecutive victories over West Virginia Deaf School and Tucker .County, and hope to make it three out of four this week. Coach Denny Price believe., they will. He's confident that the improvement which has been apparent each week will be even more evident Friday evening. Martinsburg High's Bulldogs, new 2 and 2 on the year as a result of razor-thin losses to Allegany and Fort Hill of Cumberland, Md., 1Mus victories over Keyser and North Hagerstown, will be at home again this Friday evening, hosting  the South Carroll Cavaliers in a Tri-State League contest. Martinsburg saw victory elude them in overtime last week when the coaching staff chose what may have been the second best play to call and the resulting fumble, recovered by Fort Hill, gave the Marylanders a 14 to 7 victory. This week, work has centered on hanging onto the football. Berkeley Springs, so far the class of the Double A Division in this area, will face its sternest test of the year, hosting Bi-State Conference foe Smithsburg Friday night at 8 o'clock. It will be a clash of the un- .beatens. Berkeley has won three In a row, over Musselman, Hedgesville and West Preston. Smithsburg is 3 and 0 on the year and bidding to repeat as the Bi- State champion. The remaining Eastern Panhandle team, Hedgesville, welcomes a week off as Coach John McCullough seeks to regroup his initial game 0.0 tie with Broad Run, have now dropped three games in a row. Loudoun County Cougar Victim; Martinsburg A Loser; Berkeley Wins. Jefferson "High's Cougar football team evened its season record; Berkeley Springs remained undefeated; and Martinsburg was ambushed in overtime in week-end scholastic football action. At Leesburg, Virginia, last Friday evening, Coach Jim Kessel's Jefferson High Cougars outlasted an improved Loudoun County eleven, 21 to 19. Staying with the ground of- fense that has been  Jefferson's best weapon to date, the Cougars gave up two Loudoun County touchdowns before rallying to take a 14 to 13 lead into the dressing room at halftime. In the second quarter John Lowery romped in from ten yards out for the first Cougar touchdown; then David Diehl, back in action after sustaining slight injuries the week before, scored from the one yard marker. Joey Kessel added beth extra points. Jefferson took the second halt kick off and marched 45 yards for a third touchdown, a tally that provided the winning margin. The drive was climaxed when Diehl went over from the one on fourth down, and Kessel added the extra point. Loudoun County retaliated when Marvin Trammell went over from ten yards out on a quick burst to make the score Jefferson 21, Loudoun County 19, as points after touchdown spelled the difference. For Jefferson, Quarterback Scott Walker was injured on the second half kickoff, and Sophomore Chester Ott called the rest of the game for the Cougars at quarterback. Walker's injury has been -diagnosed as a Severe ankle sprain. Jefferson's record is now 2 and 2; Loudoun County's mark dropped to 1 and 3. In Morgan County, Berkeley Springs continued unbeaten defeating a tough West Preston eleven, 14 to 3. It was the third straight victory for Coach Clyde Wilson's Indians, who had previously topped Musselman and Hedgesville. The West Preston Panthers threw a scare into the host In- dians by kicking a field goal from nine yards out in the first quarter and assuming a 3 to 0 lead. But late in the second quarter, a 24-yard pass from Craig Potter to Randy Householder put the Indians out in front to stay. The final touchdown came in the fourth quarter, another aerial, this time from Potter to Wayne Morrison: Potter added two extra points on a run. In the remaining school en- counter in the Eastern Panhandle Friday night, Martinsburg High, playing before one of .the bigger hometown crowds in the school's history, lost an overtime heartbreaker to Fort Hill o( (Turn To Page 13) WINCHESTER TOYOTA, INC.

It makes it a bit hard to play one's best when, on the green, one's ball has to roll over holes and mounds of sand and clods of dirt. However, all of those han- dicaps did not bother Margie Brown. We had our Senior., Tournament on September 21st and 22nd and Margie ShoWed us hew to play this game of golf under adverse conditions. On Thursday, the first day of the two day tournament, Margie took just 24 putts, including a chip-in on No. 18 for a par. This gave her 96-25-71 to lead the field by seven strokes. Ann Groves was holding down second place with a net 78. On the second day the 'grungies' on the greens made most scores skyrocket - but not Margies. She played better from tee to green but her putting suffered, due to conditions, and She had 33 putts. Margie's second round was 95-25-70, giving her a two day total of 141. This made Margie Brown the 1978 Senior Champion by 15 strokes over runner-up Nancy Roth. Congrats Margie and well done. Our Ladies Days will come to a close with a two day Scotch Foursome on September, 28th and 29th. This will be a wo lady team event with handicap. t Season Laid [Cougar JV's Weakened by the promotion of sev'eral players to the varsity, and by injuries to a couple of other regular performers, the Jefferson High School Jayvees suffered their third consecutive loss of the season last Wed- nesday evening, bowing to the Loudoun County Jayvees, 20 to 0. The Little Cougars played well up front, both defensively and offensively, but three big scoring plays led the Virginians to what looked on paper like an easy vic tory. Midway in the first period, Loudoun scored on a 44-yard end sweep, but missed the try for extra point. A 45-yard pass in the second quarter produced the second touchdown, and the point after was kicked to make it 13 to 0. Things tightened up in the third period. Jefferson threatened to move into touch- down territory twice, but each time the drives bogged down at crucial points. In the fourth and final stanza, the Cougars fumbled and Leudoun recovered on the five- yard line, then went over for the third touchdown of the game. The Virginians also kicked the extra point. Coach Bob Rizzo had special praise for the work, both of fensively and defensively, of Scott Griffitb and Glenn Robinson, both of whom played both ways; for Ricky Snyder, defensive end; and Mark Brannon, tackle and linebacker. Lost in the game because of injuries were Back Gary Carley and Quarterback Brian Jones. Johnny Causer, regular center, was already out with injuries and this weakened the Little Cougars offensively. There's no game this week, but that doesn't mean things are going to get any easier. Another foe with extra manpower and larger performers, Hand!ey High of Winchester, Virginia, will provide the opposition at the Jefferson High Stadium at Shenandoah Junction Wed- nesday evening, October 4, at 7:30. Shepherd Rams To Seek Fourth Win In rCivitan Bowl The undefea'ted Shepherd College Rams, on the road for the past two weeks, will clash with Bluefield State in the fourteenth annual Civitan Bowl at Martinsburg High School's Cobourne Field Saturday night at 8 o'clock. The Rams, 10 and 3 in the past thirteen annual Civitan Bowls, lost to undefeated Concord College last year. Bluefield comes in with a deceptive 0-3 record, losing to Guilford, Fairmont State and West Virginia Tech. But Shepherd Coach Walter Barr warns the Big Blues should not be taken lightly. They feature 32 returning lettermen off last year's squad, led by quar- terback Von Jaymes who threw for 433 yards in 1977. Shepherd will continue to rely on its ground control, ground- oriented philosophy which has brought three victories thus far. They'll utilize fullback Gregg Warfield to the fullest on offense. Defensively, the Rams emerge as one of the top teams in the state against the rush, allowing opponents an average of only 82.7 yards per game, and 1.9 yards per carry. Tickets to the Civitan Bowl are on sale at the athletic director's office at Shepherd College... $3 for adults, $2 for students. In the meantime, speaking of that Shepherd defense, it's beginning to make believers out of many people. Last Saturday, the Ram ball hawks sacked West Liberty's quarterback seven times, allowed the Hilltoppors only 22 J (Turn To Page 13) FL Show your good taste and sense of style.
