Last year the rangers rolled Over Galveston Ball then ranked no. 4 in the state 21-10, and used that Victory As a springboard to the District 24-aaaa championship. The other came Friday night at Staliworth stadium. The score Sterling 13, port Neches the indians had been ranked no. 2 in the state. But Al Dennis rangers sent them checking their Hole card and put themselves Back in the spotlight not Only in Baytown but in the stale As Well. The Victory As big As it was belonged to Ever Blue shirt who trudged onto the stadium turf. On defense and that was easily the key the rangers received tremendous efforts from the likes of Gary Bender George Rippel. Glenn Huey Steve Grace Scottie Mills Chris Kime Howard Sampson Mike Hilzley Dwight Chan Dler Ricky Moody Steve Mclendon Jim Muckleroy James Mcknight Johnny Brown Billy Herrin Terry Al Fred and Nathan Bracy. Sterling s pass Gate de sense put the clamps on port Neches Jeff Bergeron Al though the Jet did manage 122 Yards on 13 carries. That figure is 43 Yards below his average of 165 Yards per game. Bergeron s one touchdown is below his average of 3.5 per game. Nobody else can say they did the Job that Wras done on Ber Geron but the rangers. The offence which still needs a Little polish Here and there was nonetheless at its Best. Sterling pounded out 142 Yards Rushing which is a sea son High. Key people in that move ment included Fallback Dane Listi who might have came into his own by gaining 48 hard earned Yards on 14 carries and quarterback Martin Lemond the Man who came in during the second Quarter to give big Al s rangers the lift they needed and wound up with 51 Yards on the ground in just eight trips. But the real heroes were in the liner especially on the right Side where guard John Wallace and tackle Lindy Fourrier were doing hard nosed work. Other linemen like Pat Todd Saba Bou Chebul Joe Kelley Russell Hargrove Mike Pil Low Steve Hughes and Gil Edwards made their presence known throughout the night. Backs Scottie Goodman Nelson Antwine and Emmett Lewis also joined in the fun and games and enjoyed every glorious moment of it. The beginning of the end for port Neches came in the Sec Ond Quarter. And defense Sweet defense was the reason. Sampson stepped in front of a Rodney Taylor screen pass on the port Neches 40 and re turned the Ball to the 24, where the indians were penalized half the distance to the goal for piling on to set the wheels in motion. From the 12, Lemond gained six on a quarterback sneak Singleton went for two and one and Lemond got two More which got the rangers their initial first Down with left in the half. Listi scored the touchdown on the next play and single ton s extra Point made it 7-0. It should be pointed out that the bulk of the yardage came Over the spots occupied by Wallace and Fourrier on the right Side of the line. The rangers drove 56 Yards in 12 plays to secure the Victory in the fourth period. The drive actually began in the third Quarter after Steve Fry punted dead on the Ster Ling 44. From that Point the rangers moved methodically to the port Neches 35 where they faced a fourth and one Situa Tion. But Sterling kept its Cool and Lemond got the first on a two Yard sneak and for All practical purposes it was All Over but the shouting. The big play after the first Down was a 19-Yard run by Lemond which put the Ball on the Indian 12. Singleton carried it Over two plays later from five see rangers Page 3 it s taking shape its beginning to look a lot like a new building on North main where the Baytown police station is taking shape in Concrete and steel.
