Coa~l Bill Osbourn's foo~allers struck both on the ground and in the air in their seven-to~mh- doavn parade and for the Cardin- als it was their fourth victory in s;ix gashes. It was also the 16~h vi,ctory in 23 games since Osbour~ became heaxi coach wt the Jeffer- son County school. It was once again the passing of C~rdinal QuaVcevback Dave Lu- cas and ~he running of halfback Charlie H, unter that led the Car- dlnals to rip'tory. Hunter c~ntin~ed his spectac- ular to~chdow~ ,making wi~h ~hree trips to paydirt giving him a total of ten TD's for the cazn~paign.

A pass from Waideck ~o Hunter added the ex- tra point as the Cards led 20-0. Shepherdstown added two more TD's in the final period cn a 11- yard pass from Lucas to Hunter and a 10-yard toss from junior Lynwood Stride to sophomore Jer ry Boyd. Boonsboro clicked for a TD la*te ,in the game ag~nst the Cardinal reserves on a 40 yard run by Wan ger. Defensively, Coach Osbourn praised the performance of his entire forward wall, especially lau ding the efforts of cen~ter guard Harry VantMetre and tackles Jim ~IVIc~arty and Porky May.

Va. at Southern Calif. While three sectional scholastic foot~ball ~te~ms have already wound up their 1959 seasons and Shep- herd College and four other high school teams will follow suit this weekend, there are still a number of very important gridiron battles to be .fought before the season becomes history. And the ,biggest of them all for Jefferson County fans comes up Sa~turday on Vhe Harpers Ferry :gridir(~.'~ bet,ween the Tigers of f~he Ferry and the Panthers of Charles Town. ~hile we took our worst beating in the prognosticating game last weekend we don'`t see how ,this one should be tou~h to pick. So hoping to boost the poor 12-5 mark for 17 selections last week and the sea- son's ~otal/ of 71 rights and 24 wrongs, we can't se a,.ny~hing but an easy win .for Charles Town. Last year ~he Pan,thers mauled the Tigers 40-6, and w.ith the Panthers much stronger this season ~han last and the Tigers not qui.te as strong in any department, we Cmn't see how Charles Town can bring back anyVhing less than a 33-6 victory in spite of the fact he 'game is being played in Har- pers Ferry. With ~Sheoherdstown, ,lY~ussel- man and Hedgesville High Schools having already wrapped up the fo(~tbal,1 gear for another season and Hancock, Boonsboro, Page Jackson and James Wood High Schools and Shepherd College see for their finale either Friday or :Ss~turday, ~here won't be any Fri- day action at all in this section. Yes, with t;he frost now on the pumpkins and the fodder in the shock, the foot~bal,1 season is gct- ~ng colder and colder and within another week or ~two will be com- pletely shot. Now to get ~back to who will do what and where this week, Clarke County's footballers who were knocked $,rom bhe un,beaten ranks last week by Broadway, will ~e going ~ll out to bo]nce,,,- back a- gainst James Wood High of Win- chester.
