Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - November 2, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin MU '11' Prepares for Dakota State Losing, 18 to 12 Cowboys Win in Final 46 Seconds 5 To Extend Warrior Skein to 11 BY DAVE O'HARA Milwaukee Hapless Marquette looked over mov- ies of another heart-breaking performance today before launching practice for a foot- ball engagement with North Dakota State Saturday in hopes of snapping a ll-game losing streak. The Warriors suffered their seventh consecutive loss of the season and eleventh dating-back to the 1958 cam- paign in losing a tough 18- 12 decision to Oklahoma State Saturday before A homecom- ing day crowd of Marquette, with quarter- back Pete Hall in top form, tied the Cowboys from the Sooner State midway through the final quarter and then was overrun by an 88-yard march in 22 plays, climaxed by a touchdown with 46 sec- onds" left. Couple of Breaks The Warriors appeared des- tined for at least a draw against the 2-touchdown fav- orites from Oklahoma. How- ever, they were unable to con- tain the slashing tactics of the Cowboy machine, also helped by a couple of breaks. Oklahoma State went the distance despite a' 15-yard penalty for an illegal substi- tution, coming on the heels of a 9-yard loss'on an attempt- ed pass maneuver. But it took a tricky bounce of the ball to set up the touch- down for the Cowboys. A pass from quarterback Dick Soergel locked like a sure bet for an interception by Marquette's Jim Webster. However, the senior backfield ace managed only to tip the ball in his all-out effort and Jim Dfllard of OSU was able to haul in the aerial while fall- ing on the Marquette seven. Given that advantage, OSU called upon left halfback Tony Banfield for three straight cracks at the right side of his line. Banfield made paydirt by diving over right tackle from two yards out for the deciding points.

Marquette, however, boune- ed back on the passing of Hall to tie the count in the second period. The touchdown came on a 35-yard pass play between Hall and end George Andrie. OSU's Cowboys moved in New York Dancer, heading month vacation, Sword for a two- today pre- sented an imposing list ol credentials to back his can- didacy for two of racing's most important titles. The little chestnut son of Sunglow from Isabel Dodge Sloane's Brookmeade stable virtually wrapped up "horse of the year" honors Saturday when he defeated Round Table, defending titleholder, by seven lengths in the Jockey club Gold Cup at Aqueduct. He is the leading candidate for the year-old championship. With Arcaro in the saddle for his eighth Gold Cup tri- umph, Sword Dancer was front again in the third period as Banfield, a workhorse in the visitor's backfield, crack- ed right tackle from two yards out. Marquette, stopped one yarc from tiie zone on a long drive, came back with Hal hitting Larry Hubbard at the goal from 11 yards out to tie the score. Then came the drive by the Cowboys, who chalked up their fifth straight triumph af- ter losing their first two games to Cincinnati and Ar- kansas. Marquette, big but slow afoot, managed only 82 yards on the ground while giving up 242 to the speedier Okla- homa backs. However, the Warriors stayed in contention on the efforts of Hall, one of the nation's top passers who clicked on 14 of 26 attempts for 210 yards. clocked in 1-5.

Regardless of what happens at St. Olaf Sat- urday, they're guaranteed the first Lawrence season as high as .500 since 1956. Iron-Hand Rule Despite the' length of the odds that will favor the po- tent Oles at Northfield, few who saw the Carleton game Saturday will sell the fourth- place Vikes very short. A win or a tie in the road finale would give Lawrence its best season since _1954> Lawrence ruled Saturday's first half with an iron hand The for their fourth straight win over the Vikes since fortu- nate they weren't trailing by more than 14-0 when they took their between-halves pause. The Vikes wrapped up all their scoring hi a 5-minute, second-quarter bundle. A 20- yard pass-and-run maneuver Jim Schulze to Joe Lamers, culminated a 6-play, 59-yard drive. The other touchdown came on a 13-yard power sweep by Mike Ulwelling play, of a 30-yard the sixth advance. Schulze place-kicked both ex- tra points. Three other times, the Vikes penetrated deeper than Carle- ton hi the first-half. Lawrence reached the Knight 19, the 31 and the 28 hi unsuccessful trusts. The best Carleton could do in the first half was ;o re'ach the Lawrence 38. Lawrence controlled the ball for 45 plays in the first half, to only 23 for Carle- ton, and registered a total yardage edge of 184 to 67. The only pre-intermission first downs for Carleton came via a penalty on the third play of the game and on a pass three plays before the half. Penalties proved the Vikes' biggest bugaboo. They were slapped four with four of them or 30 yards in the first quarter alone and 10 for 80 yards in the game. 43-Yard Pass Lawrence continued to dom- inate the game until the last play of the third quarter yhen a Steve Dickinson-to-Ba- con pass clicked for 43 yards to the Vike 27. That triggered Carleton aerial bombard- ment which produced five more "strikes" in the fourth quarter, set up the Carl touch- down and threatened for a time to tie the game. Dickinson scored from one yard out with left in the game after a 70-yard march. On a 2-point conversion try, Dickinson gassed to John Lundsten but he was cracked out of bounds before he could cross the goal line. Lawrence's deepest second- half advance was to the Carle- ton 32. The win was a marvelous team effort for the Vikes, but there were individual heroes, too. The offensive-defensive ac- colade would have to go to Gary Scovel, who ended his home career with perhaps his finest game. As a workhorse of the Vike running attack, Scovel drove, churned and bulled his way over the still- muddy and slippery turf to 100 yards in 24 carries. It was the best rushing total of his home collegiate career, and it's ex- ceeded only by his 146 yards at Knox in 1958. Defensively the former Winneconne prep flash was just as big a thorn to the Knights. After making a number of vital stops, includ- ing a fourth-down, behind-the- line tackle that stalled a Carleton drive, Scovel saved his best for the last. With less than five minutes to go. Bacon slipped behind the Vike secondary and took Scovel Whitmore Lamers Ulwelling Dickinson pass from the Carleton 21. Bacon had al- ready made a 34-yard profit Scovel grounded him from behind on the Vike 45. If Gary had missed Bacon, it would have been "Katy, bar the door." There were other'defensive titans for the Vikes, who doled out only 98 rushing yards in the 60 minutes. Bill Whitmore made stops all over the place and recovered a fumble that set up' the second touchdown on the Carleton 30. Doug Millard and Charlie Scruggs also made vital fum- jle recoveries. Pete Thomas, 3ob Smith, Lamers and John Dunning all tackled viciously and often. (In fact, the play jecame so rough-and-tumble hat some of the intense feel- ings spilled over into extra- curricular swinging after the Inal whistle.) Runaway Express The other three regular jacks all juniors came :hrough with offensive per- formances that all but match- ed Scovel's. Ulwelling, for ex- ample, resembled a runaway express in his first chance as frequent ball toter. The free-wheeling Appletonian ran around and over tacklers for an approximate 7.5 yard aver- age for each of seven carries. Lawrence's ability to hang onto the ball was one of its (no fumbles to four for Bob Landis ly-executed screen pass, Lan- dis to Scovel, that moved the ball from the Vike 47 to the Knight 9. However, a 15 yard penalty at the tag-end of the play shoved "the Vikes back to the 24. After a 4-yard Scovel gain and an incomplete pass, Schulze (as the quarterback on this series) faded back and pitched a bullet-like strike to Lamers. The Kaukauna whig- man grabbed it in full stride on the 10 and outraced de- fenders into the end zone. Six running play too it in again later after Whit- more had recovered a Tom Beach bobble on the Knight 30. From x the 13, Unwelling sped wide around the Carleton right flank and steamed home. Carleton's aerials kept the issue in doubt to the final minutes. After Scovel's tackle stopped Bacon's bid for a TD on the Vike 45, Lawrence drew a penalty on the next Carleton only 33 yards away from the potential tying touchdown. Two ground plays netted five yards, be- fore the Carls went upstairs again. The Vikes tightened, however, when the had to, knocking down a Dickinson pass and a Tom Kelly both from the 28. The Vikes kept possession for the final chalking up two first downs. Carleton Lawrence 0 14 6 Touchdowns: Lawrence Lamers. Ulwellinc.
