(Photo by Steve DiGiuUian) The Shepherdstown Junior High football team chalked up their fourth victory in five games last Thursday night, October 6, on the Charles Town Junior High gridiron. They had to come from behind in the waning minutes of the game to defeat a stubborn and fired-up bunch of Charles Town Junior High Panthers by a slim 16-12 margin. The Panthers coached by Harry Hopkins, all but bad an upset victory in the bag over the Cardinals of Shepherdstown, when the Cardinals took off for 16 big points to overcome the 12-0 lead which the Panthers beld. Charles Town jumped into a 6- 0 first period lead and were still in front at halftime. Then in the third period, they pushed over another touchdown to move in front, 12-0. And with the Cardinals making numerous mistakes and the Panthers playing good football, R appeared the Pan- thers had the Cardinals really caged. But with two minutes of play remaining, Bob Lebida, ace runner and scorer for the Car- dinah, who had been out of the Cardinal line-up due to burns on his chest and arms suffered in a fire at his home, broke loose for a 70-yard touchdown run to make the score 12-8. Then seconds later, the Cardinals closed the gap to 12-8, when Chris Jenkins passed to tave Weigle for the two extra points on conversion to make R 12-8. Then on the ensuing kick-off, the Cardinals really got their biggest break of the game when Charles Town fumbled the hall and Jerry Grantham recovered it for Shepherdstown on the Charles Town 40-yard stripe. Four plays later the Cardinals had turned defeat into victory for themselves with a touchdown run of 12 yards by Tom Boyle. On chance at a big payoff", General Manager Robert G.

And in the first half, the Panther offense gave the Cardinal defense some trouble before adjustments were made to stop their running game. Coach Colebank said that while his offensive forward wall played very well, the some half dozen fumbles the Cardinals made, along with other mistakes, helped the Panthers to keep the Cardinals from scoring in the first three periods of play. south Jefferson PTA To Meet Monday at 7 South Jefferson Elementary P,T.A. will meet Monday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. There will be a covered dish dinner for the parents and teachers, followed by a program by Donald Mickey.
