Rick Adams a 6-2, 194-Pound halfback took charge of this part of the show and guided Ragsdale a flying tigers to an impressive 20-0 Victory Over Central highs Bison.

Gains Cage series from Russia by Carol Wilson Enterprise sports writer the frustration Hung about As thick As the late evening fog Over Ledford stadium monday night. The panthers battled invading Trinity to a 14-14 deadlock and neither team went Home particularly Happy with the outcome. For the bulldogs the game represented their first no loss since the 1972 season. But the contest was also Trinity a Best Chance at Victory in recent times As the visitors ran up a 14-0 halftime Edge Only to be completely stymied in the second half. Ledford Felt frustration pains that were perhaps even More acute. The panthers stormed out in the second half scored two Quick touchdowns to tie the score then moved inside the Trinity 25 four More times in the contest Only to come away empty handed on each occasion. A we were Flat in the first half a admitted Ledford coach Ken Browning a in the second half we played Well except for the errors. Part of that is due to the youth of our team. We be got a lot of Young people playing and they be things to Trinity coach Paul Barnes had a different Story to Tell. A we were very pleased with the Way the boys played in the first half a he commented. A we told them at the half though that a 14-0 Lead be enough. They Ledford came out Tough the second half and stopped our offence the bulldogs could do Little wrong in the first half. Utilizing the running ability of quarterback Blaine Smith and halfback Randy Lanier and Craig Mcneil up the Middle Trinity took the opening Kickoff and went 66 Yards in eight plays to the games first score. The big blow was a 33-Yard run by Lanier that carried the Ball Down to the Ledford five. Smith took it in from there for the touchdown but Mcneil a extra Point run failed and the bulldogs led 6-0. Trinity was aided on its next scoring drive by two Ledford penalties. The first an offside Call on a bulldog punt gave Trinity a first Down on the Panther 47. Four plays later a face mask penalty moved the Ball Down to the 13. Smith took it in to the one and Mcneil picked up the touchdown from there. Smith then hit Mcneil for the two Point conversion and a 14-0 Trinity Lead. A we had planned to run up the Middle and we Felt they would give us that a said Barnes. A we had to keep it going up the Middle to make everything else work. In the second half they clogged up the Middle and really stopped us there was Little stopping the panthers in the opening moments of the third Quarter. A fired up Ledford squad marched 74 Yards in 14 plays on its first series. David Smith hit Bobby Eller with a 20-Yard strike to the Trinity one to set up Kelly Clinard a touchdown dive. Smith ran around right end to pick up the two Point conversion and narrow the bulldog Lead to 14-8.

The largest crowd to watch the teams so far More than 10.000, whooped it up in the coliseum As most of their Lavonte . State National championship team formed the winning nucleus for a closely fought 6766 Victory. That gave the . Four wins in five games. The final contest will be played tonight in Landover my.

Quot we wanted to Clinch the series Here to keep them from having a Chance to get a split. A we want to show we Are the Best Amateur basketball team around just As they want to show they Are the but Are the russians amateurs a Well they say they Are and we have to take their word a Stoddard replied. Amateur in the two countries May have different meaning since Many of the russian players have been together for six or seven years and Range in age from 21 to 29. Both the russians and the United states have been playing a lot of basketball in the off season but for state at least this series bother them. A this will help us get in shape for the season a Stoddard said. Quot we will get at it on oct. 15 just like always. Playing the russians ranks with playing anybody in the Atlantic coast conference. They Are Good. They Are much better than the teams we played in the far East. They Are much bigger and this game was the closest of the series so close that it took four pressure free throws in the last minute and a half by a guess who a David Thomson to insure the Triumph. Yurt Pavlov hit a free throw for the russians with 34 seconds left for the final score. In those frantic final moments though there was some scurrying around to keep everybody on the Edge of his seat. Morris Rivers another state player rebounded Pavlov a missed second tree throw for what seemed to be the final Nail on the lid. But the . Threw the Ball out of Bounds playing keep away with five seconds left. The russians called a timeout to set up the winning try. Alexander Kharchenko got the backcourt inbound play and tossed up a Looper from farther out that was necessary and it fell Short. Thompsons free throws tied the game at 65. Shortly after that russians Alexander Belov was charged with a technical foul for throwing the Ball at the ceiling. It was his fifth foul of the game technical count toward the total and he was out. Ivan Yedeszko and Valery Miloser Dov also fouled out. None of the United states players fouled out and the game was considerably less physical than the others even though there were bodies sprawling from time to time. Tempers were kept under control. So was the game when Thompson made his Points. A this Wasny tas rough As the game in Seattle a said state guard Rivers As he fought his Way to the bus. A but the officials Here were different. We should have won All the games. A was i worried about this one not when i saw David go to the it looks like the Start of another Fine season for Thompson who led both teams with 24 Points. Belov had 20 and was the prime Force in pulling the soviets Back from nine Points Down with his layups in the Lane. According to russian coach Vladimir Kondrashin his teams goal has been accomplished even though it has lost the series. The idea he said was to bring in some of the younger players to give them experience for the 1976 olympics. The current crop of state Mcaa champs wont be around for that one but they can say they beat the russians when they got the Chance. Enjoy lose ugly fat skirt toting weight today or Money tee.
