Kennedy Holds Off Prairie; Jeff Wins, Wash falls, 55-48
Enright’s 27 Pace Cougars
By Jack Ogden
A young Kennedy squad broke out to a 36-24 halftime lead, stayed in command for a third quarter, and then held off a closing rush by Prairie for a 71-62 basketball win in the opener for both squads Friday at Kennedy.
A 3-point play by ailing Randy Myers cut the Cougars’ lead to 54-51 with 8:22 to go, and Terry Feye’s free throw trimmed it to one, 61-00, with just 3:03 left.
But then Craig Enright, who hit 27 for the winners, cashed in on a pair, Randy Reinhold drove for another, young Jeff Ftienne added one and Steve Srhnoebelen added a basket as Kennedy broke away for the win.
“Our inexperience hurt us,” admitted Kennedy Coach Dave Etienne. “We forced some shots early and didn’t handle their press as well as we could have.
“But I’m sure pleased with what our kids did down the stretch. Even when it got close, they weren’t afraid to shoot and everyone came through when we needed it.”
Etienne was particularly pleased with Enright’s play, and also impressed with Mike Dohnaiek, one of three returning Prairie starters, who led the Hawks with 26 Prairie coach Laverne Bruns was disappointed with the outcome, but pleased with his club’s rally.
“I was happy about the way we came back after a poor start,” he explained. “Poor shots and missed free throws hurt us in the first half.
“But, we showed enough to indicate we can have a pretty fair club if we iron out our mistakes.”
Bruns disclosed that Myers, who hit a couple of key baskets in the fourth quarter surge, was handicapped with a sprained ankle. He ended up with ll points while Feye had 16
Schnoebelen, Reinhold and Etienne were all in double figures for the Cougars.

Cosell Defends Slight Dip in His Show’s Ratings
Bv B*b Greene
NEW YORK (AP) - How-, ard Cosell and the brass at ABC say their Monday night football extravaganzas have slipped slightly in popularity this season but the show, considered a big gamble when it was launched five years ago. still is faring very well
Cosell said the number of viewers had dropped about four percent from last year, the network’s best ^season since it started televising the National Football League games
“The reason is very simple," Cosell said in an interview. “We’ve had tremendous, tremendous competition. And there’s a growing apathy in the country for football, as evidenced by the number of empty seats in the stadiums.
“CBS threw both barrels at us. They took a hit show.
‘Maude’, and moved it to Monday. Then they also put Rhoda', a marvelous new show , opposite us ”
Ratings sheets for the season show that “Rhoda” has outdrawn Monday night football nine of IO weeks, but ABC’s football has outdrawn “Maude” half of the nights.
"And we’ve had a terrible schedule,” Cosell said. “How in the hell could you hope to do as well as we did when you’ve got a Kansas City, a team with a 3-6 record, going against a Denver, at 4-4-1?”
Cosell was referring to last Monday’s matchup, which had to compete with NBC’s showing of the second half of “The Godfather”.
“We feel the greatest night Monday night football ever had was against The Godfather’,” (’(well said

NBC claimed that 70 percent of all television sets in use in New York City Monday night were tuned in to the second half of the award-winning movie. The NFL game between the Chiefs and the Broncos was watched by IO percent of the viewers.
* But Irv Brodsky, publicist for ABC-TV Sports, said the football game received a “very respectable 26 percent share of the audience nationally. It was sensational, compared to what was expected ”
Cosell said because of the strong matchups to be shown on Monday night in the next four weeks, ABC believes it will match last year’s record 38 percent share of the audience.
He said it has had a 34 percent share thus far this year — 30 percent is considered successful — and said that means Monday night football is watched by about 13.5 million households. He1 said Sunday’s NKI. games on NBC are watched by fewer than nine million households, slightly more than are tuned in to CBS games the same day
“We charge SKH).OOO for a commercial minute on Monday night football.” he said. “And we’ve had no sponsor defections. We have sponsors waiting to buy time.
“We’re not competing with The Godfather’, nor could we," Cosell said “But for five years we’ve beaten the movies.
“No one said anything when we beat Liz Taylor and ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. No one said anything when we beat Burt Reynolds in ‘Shamus’.
“I Kist Monday night, against the biggest blockbuster of all time, the most costly movie ever shown on television, one that cost $10 million, we got 26-plus share of the audience. That s un incredible showing.
“Monday night football will prevail. We’ve worked a miracle ”

Keyed by an excellent first half of defense, Jefferson high opened its basketball season Friday night with a 76-60 victory over Ottumwa in the Jeff gym.
“I was super pleased with that first half,” Jeff Coach Colin Williams said. “I thought we played a half of the* best defense I’ve seen in three years.”
Jeff’s tenaeity-a dogging man to man defense- and 14 points apiece by Dean Uthoff and Al Seiinger keyed a 38-14 advantage at Intermission.
Time and time again the young Ottumwa team turned the ball over (ll turnovers in the fist quarter), while their accuracy from the field left much to be desired.
While Jeff was connecting on 15 of 40 field goal attempts, Ottumwa manage! only four of 25 in the first 16 minutes
“There was a reason for that,” Williams said of Ottumwa’s poor percentage “It wasn’t just poor shooting--we weren’t letting them get good shots.”
The second half was something else*. Ottumwa perked up to outscore Jeff 46-38 and improved its shooting percentage to a final 28 percent to Jeff’s 39, but the action for the most part was sloppy. Jeff finished with 30 turnovers to Ottumwa’s 29. Both clubs committed 27 fouls.
“KxhaustiBD and carelessness bari as in the second half.” Williams allBwed. “Oar kids were tired after that first half. They worked awfully
hard and that first half effort won the game for as.
“I think their turnovers
hurt them more than ours
hurt us because we could play defense when we had to.”
Uthoff, the 6-10 junior center. led all scorers with 24 points. Seiinger, a 6-5 senior forward, was close behind with 18 and senior guard Scott Bruzek added IO.
