Holding c~nly a 14-12 lead, Char les Town insured the victory in the last six seconds of the game on a 55-yard scoring jaunt by Cook. Earlier TD rambles came on a 30 yard scamper by Cook and a 40 yard dash by tally. St. James counted on a 15-yard end sweep by Pitts and a Linhart to Clements pass play covering 40 yards.

St. James scoring: Touchdowns Pitts (15 run); Clements (40 pass run .from Linhart.) Victory Knocked From Page One gainer was a 2-yard sweep by Burns for a first down at CT 49. A quick pass to Spinks ate up 14 more vital yards for a "first-aid- ten" at the K 31. Jackson barrel- ed :for four yards, then Robinson dashed through the Keyser defen se for 12 more and a first down at the Tornadoes' 15. The officials signalled four minutes left in the half as Robinson cracked down to the K 13. Taking to the air, Burns found Spi~nks behind the Keyser defense in the~end zone but Keedy's :des- ,perate~play batted the ball away from the CT receiver. Feeding 5he ball to Robinson, the elusive speed ster shot through the Keyser de- ,fense, carried two of the Torna- does with him for the final three~ yards and hit paydirt on a great run. Tom Doyle's placement was perfect as the score was deadlock ed at 7-all. The Panthers were to threaten again krt the closing seconds after taking over at their own 44 yard line following a Keyser punt. Charles Town dug into its own bag of tricks using a Robinson-to- Burns to Spinks lateral pass play for 30 yards at 0]e Keyser 22. An- other great diving catch of a pass for ;nine yarc~s 'by Dailey moved the ball to the Keyser 13. After failing to gain on two plays, the Panthers tried a field goal from the Keyser 21 but the kick was blocked as the half ended. i In seven plays covering 74 yards after receiving the second-half kickoff the Panthers had bounced ahead, 13-7. It was Jackson for five quick yards, then a 26-yard scamper to the Keyser 33. Robinson dashed for five yards, the~ Jackson was_ back in the act ,for six more and a first down at the Keyser 22. Burn~ could pick up 0nly one yard or~ an attempted sweep but on the next play hit Spinks on a jump pass which carried down to the Keyser seven yard line. Again it was Jackson who refused to go down after bei;ag hit by two Key- ser defenders and battled his way into the end zone. Doyle's attemp- ed placement was blocked. Key~ser, desperately trying to break Keedy loose unveiled a sin- gle wing offense to launch a drive to the CT 20 yard line. But two running plays and a pair of passes could net only five yards and the Panthers took over on downs. Keedy's 14 yard run, plus a 15 yard penalty on the Panthers, set up another Keyser threat at the CT 18 early in the final period. But Leo Kisner knocked down Shaw for no gain, Coulter buried Keedy under .for a three yard loss, and two passes fell incomplete as agai~a the Panthers held on downs. Charles Town promptly stormed down the ~ield for the game de- ciding touchdown. A 31- yard gal lop by Burns, who was finally caught at the Keyser 45 by Keedy ignited the spectacular march. Jackson ran for six and eight yards, then Robinson streaked a- Buy It at your favorite Grocer or :Supermarket round end for 14 more and a first down at the Keyser 17, After two running plays had moved the ball to the Keyser 11, Burns slid a- round right end, When about to be tackled flipped the ball to l%obin- son who zlipped out of Keedy's desperate grab at the five-yard- line to score.
