The period ended with both clubs drawing Blanks. Means rips but those braves under the reins of quarterback Dave Larson and the knife like dashes of Sophomore tailback Paul Means kept plugging away at the Spencer defences. Terry Alberts slowed the last couple Yards of that ill fated Campaign Down to the Spencer 5. And Cherokee had fourth and one with 9 15 to go in the half. Coach Leo Hupke sent in a play but there was a mix up in the Backfield and Means got Only to the line of scrimmage where the tigers called a halt. The situation was ironic for less than six minutes later in the same episode Spencer deep in its own land got that big Chance on Vogts trajectory pattern to Greer and pulled Roff. If you Laid All the Quot could have been Quot situations end to end Cherokee would have won going away. Deserved better but it turned into a sober finish for dads night fans and honoured guests. Just the same those hard hitting braves deserved a better Fate you kept telling yourself As you wiped away second half raindrops. Want to hear More about ironies could have beens and Al mosts. You might As Well. A it s been a season of Quot almost Quot a few Points Here a few Breaks there and Cherokee would be High in the standings today. Spencer could go nowhere after the braves marched to the 5. And Means hauled the ensuing punt Back to the Tiger 33. From there it was just about All Means Paul charged ahead for 136 Yards in 41 carries and a 3.3 average Down to the 20. Caught dropped then Larson unwound a Sharp shot Down the Middle. Straddling the goal was Slomback Jim Homan. Jim Hung onto the Slippery pigskin for an exasperating moment then it slipped away to the spongy turf. Spencer a veritable band of defensive bal Hawks came up with an interception on the next play. J Unior Walt Thomas leaped High to Spear the football at his 13 and nullify Cherokee s threat. Defensive Ace j in of ado Cates latched onto Steve Koch at the 15 for a solid Stop. Cates had 21 tackles this night probably his Best performance Ever. The whole game went up in smoke on the next play when Vogt ared Long to Greer for that touchdown. Cherokee was on the move again As time began to dwindle just before the half. Larson linked up with Mark Perrin on pass for 32 Yards Down to the Spencer to. Larson passed out of Bounds purposely with 7 seconds to go then Spencer was hit with a five Yard penalty for illegal procedure to the 5. Cedar Field goal the Ball was at an Angle but the braves went for the Field goal with Jim Cedar kicking from the 15 and Larson holding. Cedar s Boot from that difficult Angle was a Beauty splitting the uprights and ending All scoring. Cedar s Effort just beat the clock there was one second left Only time left to kick off. Cherokee took the second half Kickoff and began to March on the ground behind Reserve quarterback Randy Hill a Junior. Means and Albert dug out Yards and the braves put together several first Downs. Then Hill lost the handle on fourth and one at Spencer s 28 and the tigers regained ownership at their 36. Spencer tried to put a March in motion in the fourth and did get to the 18. But defensive Back Dot Johnson picked off an errant Vogt toss and sailed out to his 22. Cherokee failed to get going and was forced to kick. As precious time began ebbing for the braves there came a belated Chance. Cherokee s defences All were Tough forced Spencer into a fourth and 25 situation. Larson and Means pulled a deceptive switch Handoff on the return with Dave carrying out the fake and Means running for Daylight Down the near sidelines. Means nearly Breaks Paul nearly broke it All the Way running Back some 30 Yards to the Cherokee 49 before a desperate Tiger shoved the Brave out of Bounds. Hill Back in the game passed Over Jim Leinbaugh s head. But on third and to Randy fired to Leinbaugh and the football trickled off his fingers. Cherokee once More regained Possession with a minute left. Hill s Aerial Effort on first Down was pilfered by nimble Steve roti who ably leaped in front of the Cherokee receiver at the braves 34. And Spencer ran out the clock. Cherokee led everywhere Quot but on the scoreboard Quot in the words of Hupke. The braves picked up 22 first Downs to 14 and piled up 146 Yards Rushing to a Mere 75 for the visitors. Cates shines Quot Cates played one of his usual Fine defensive games Quot said Hupke afterwards. Then he added Quot All our boys looked Good on defense. We were Tough. And we did a very Good Job of adjusting defensively to their pro sets. Quot it was just a Case of a pass completion that was really fortunate for Spencer. Quot on offence the picture was that they gave us opportunities but you Don t get a second Chance. We had people open and we had people drop the football. We had chances but did not . The turning Point. Here s the Way Hupke Felt Quot no reflection on anyone but we had our Chance in the third period. We called pass play and Randy Hill fumbled and they recovered at mid Field. Of we had stayed on the ground we would have been Able to put them in the Hole with a punt. A Good Chance to keep them deep. Quot but we fumbled and gave them Good Field position.
