Then on the ensuing kick-off, Jefferson came roaring back to get on the scoreboard with a touchdown of their own. Scott Walker, junior quar- terback, who was forced to throw more passes in this game than ever before, and hitting on 12-of-22, found Warren Miller open down the middle and hit him for 16 yards and a first down. Then he hit Charles McDonald in about the same middle spot for another six ayrds and then passed to Curtis Jones for a first down on the Valley 30-yard stripe. The Cougars picked up another 21 yards on the ground and with the aid of a penalty, moved to the five-yard stripe. Then Walker fied a pass to Miller, who went ovr the goal-line Jragging several Vikings with him Warren Miller placed kicked the extra point and itw as 14-7 Loudoun Valley But when a Cougar mistake gave "the Vikings their third touchdown with only 4:48 of the second period to play. Walker had tossed a pass to Curtis Jones, and as the ball was belted from his arms, Mark Clark of the Vikings happened to catch the ball in mid-air and raced 42 yards for the score, to make it 20-7 at the half-way mark. In the third period, the Vikings really broke the game open with two touchdowns which resulted from interceptions of Jefferson passes. Jefferson did manage to register another touchdown in the waning minutes of the game when Jones sprinted nine yards into the end zone. YACC To Have c00l00ae The injury riddled Jefferson High Cougars went to Pur- cellville, Va., Friday night minus five of their starters, and during the contest lost two more to injuries, and as a result were hardly a good match for the Loudoun County Vikings who rolled to a 32-14 victory. It was the fifth victory in six outings for the always powerful Vikings, while for the Cougars it was their third defeat in six games. This was also the first time this season the Cougars have dropped below the .500 mark since their opening game which they lost to the James Wood High Colonels of Win- chester, Va. The last victory the Cougars have recorded was on Sept. 16, when they defeated the Loudoun County High Raiders of Lnesburg, Va. But in that vic- tory, the Cougars were playing at pretty much full strength and had not been hit by so many injuries. Missing from the Cougar starting line-up at the outset Friday night were starters Dave Diehl, who had been heading the Cougar running game, and linemen Barry Davidson, Keith Carley, Lionel Fields and Bueky Penweli. Joining the list Friday night were two stalwart linemen in Kevin Mason and Vic Cart. Both sustained knee injuries. In addition to the loss of so many players by injuries, the Cougar rester is now depleted to the point it is almost impossible to do any scrimmage work[ during their weekly drills. Only l 19 players remain on the Cougar squad. And with a lot of new faces in their line-up, the Cougars naturally came up with a host of bad breaks which went" against them Despite the adversities, the Cougars remained in the thick of the battle for nearly two full periods, slowing down Loudoun Valley's vaunted running attack until the third period. The Vikings scored once in the first period when Dave Shocldey, Valley quarterback, raced 60 yards to score. Then early in the second period, Shockley scored his second TD of the game on a six- yard run and Shockley also hit Bermusdaffer witgh a pass for the two extra lints to make it The Natiohal Park Service will establish a Young Adult Con- servation Corps camp along the C&O Canal, according to a press release sent out by Sen. Jennings Randolph last week. The camp, at a location yet to he determined, will enroll 50 campers for conservation work in the Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia areas adjoining the canal. Offensive Une Plays. Key Role In Rams' Bug Win Over W. Va. Tech When the Shepherd College Ram football machine got rolling early in September on its 1977 drive the offensive line was one of the questionables about the squad since it was young and experienced. Saturday af- ternoun in the rain and some mud, it was the offensive line which played a key role in the hard-fought 24-20 victory which the Rams chalked up over a strong West Virginia In- tercollegiate Conference foe. It was Homecoming Day at Shepherd and the gridmen made sure that this day would be replete by shaking off the very bad news they had received earlier in the week with respect to the ineligibility of one of their numbers, and giving the student body and the hundreds of grads a victory. The Rams demonstrated early in the battle that they came to play to win. And this weekend, the Rams will travel into the Northern Panhandle to tangle with the West Liberty Hilltop- pers in another Conference battle. While Shepherd's record, as a result of the ineligibility of a player, shows only a 2-4 record on the season, only two of the losses were in Conference play and only one in the Northern Division of the Conference. And it was a forfeit, one of three which the Rams had to suffer as a result of the disqualification of the player. Shepherd can still win their division of conference play, with victories over West Liberty, Fairmont and Salem. In their first three possessions of the football Saturday, the Rams marched for touchdowns to move out to a 21-0 lead. The first score was the culmination of a 75-yard drive. Then the second time the Rams gained possession of the ball, they marched 55 yards. Their third possession resulted in a 54-yard touchdown drive. And three of the TD drives came without the Rams having to take to the air even once which is a real tribute to the offensive line and the bard-running of the Ram backs. With Gary Sullivan, Larry Jehie, George Snowden, Charles Pierce, Dan Ownings, Jim McFarlane and Larry Leith turning in some great blocking exhibitions, the Rams, ex- pecially in the first half of play, just ran through, over and around the Tech linemen for the big lead which eventually proved to he the difference in the ball game. Greg Warfield, one of the backfield workhorses of the Ram ground attack, carried the ball 41 times, rolled up 143 yards on scrimmage and scored all three Ram touchdowns in the first half of play. The Techmen did manage to get into the scoring act late in the second period by virtue of a screen to pass Tim Johnson which was good for 56-yards and then a 20-yard run by Johnson for the score. Early in the third period, Gary Sherman upped Shepherd's score to 24 with a field goal, but then the Techmen scooped up two Shepherd turnovers and converted them into touchdowns to get right back into the ball game. Former Musselman High grid star Ray Washington, scored two of the Tech TD's, on runs of 22 and 7 yards. enjoying the festivities were mothers, Mrs. Rajean Stuckey, Mrs. Brenda Eisenhart, Mrs. Betty Hall, Mrs. Beverly Basore, Mrs. Shirley Welsh, Mrs. Edith Thomas and Mrs. Becky Cook.

Jeffemn High Girls' Cagers Continue To After being knocked from the undefeated ranks by Loudoun Valley in Purcellville, Va., on Sept. 27, the Jefferson High girls' basketballers have come back strong to post three con- secutive victories, one of them a sweet revenge win over the same Loudoun Valley team. First the Cougars, coached by Mike Cook, got back onto the winning track by defeating arch- rival Clarke County, Va., High of Berryville, Va., for the second time this season, this time by a decisive 70-35 score, on the Jefferson High hardwoods. Although the point total which the Cougar girls rolled up was the highest of the season, Coach Cook said he was not really impressed by what he saw. Cook said, "While we show better against Clarke County than at any time this season, Clarke County is not a strong team, so it is hard to tell just how well my girls actually were doing". The Cougar girls hit on 32 shots of a total of 60 and by far his was their best shooting night of the season. Senior Denise Jones hit six of ten shots to lead the pack. The Cougars jumped out to a 20-9 first period lead and out- scored the Eagles in every period. On October 4, the Cougars faced what they felt would he one of their top battles of the season in the Hedgesville gym, but the Cougars breezed to a 51- 33 victory for their fourth win in LEETOWN HOMEMAKERS TO MEET The Leetown Extension Homemakers Club will meet at the home of Mrs. Ernest Hen- dricks on Wednesday, Oct 19, at 1:30 p.m. Dues will be collected.
