New Castle News (Newspaper) - September 16, 1967, New Castle, Pennsylvania Castle pa., news saturday september 16, 1967�?�?�?--------impressive new Castle swamps Ambridge 48-0 by Bob Vosburg sports editor Ambridge a new Castle High s football team is Good. But How Good. That a the question. Quot we still Don t know do we a head coach Lindy Lauro pondered As he sat relaxing on the Steps outside his teams locker room Here last night. He had just watched his charges crush an in believably inept Ambridge High team 48-0, and it could have been much worse. But there lies the problem. Is Ambridge that bad or is new Castle really that Good undoubtedly its a Case of both. From the exhibition it staged last night its hard to believe Ambridge belongs to the midwestern conference. Scouts had called the Bridgers a confused team and they were being kind. New Castle on the other hand looked tremendous. Coach Lauro sent his Fleet of talented backs through Over and around the Bridgers befuddled defences. And it did no to matter who was carrying the Ball. Ambridge Stop anybody. When the game ended. New Castle had accumulated 426 total Yards a a record for modern times scored seven touchdowns had another called Back and missed still another by a matter of feet. The margin of Victory is the greatest by any new Castle team since the 1954 aggregation shocked Pittsburg Fifita Avenue 59-6, and its been Many Many years since a Opial opponent has received such rough treatment from the red Hurricane. New Castle notched three first Downs on its first three plays and that was a hint of things to come. No matter what Lauro tried worked and he was Given an Opportunity to Experiment such As Seldom comes in a game. He had juniors and sophomores in action much of the time. End Bill Howley played safety Middle guard Ken Aven played fullback and Center Phillip Tony even ran across an extra Point a but that Wasny to planned. Lou Santangelo alone piled up 120 Yards in the first half. Then there was poor Ambridge. If everything new Castle did went right everything Ambridge tried went wrong. Take the first half for example. Ambridge was minus 22 Yards lost the Ball twice on fumbles and once on an interception and was in new Castle territory Only once to the 46. The Bridgers had just two first Downs in the first two periods and one of them was strictly Luck when a pass got by three Newcastle defenders and fell into the arms of Tom Doyle who was Flat on his Back on the ground. There was a Down that went unnoticed when Ambridge had 12 men on the filed and there was a quaint statue of Liberty play on which a new Castle lineman almost took the Handoff. As it was. The play lost 10 Yards and the Ball was fumbled away with new Castle s Rich Stull recovering. And that show it went for the Bridgers of new head coach Lou Mihajlovich throughout a hapless four quarters. Meanwhile Santangelo Lenny Payne and Ron keyed were romping to two touchdowns apiece while Ron Hunt tallied one. Payne had a third scoring run nullified by a penalty and the Hurricane reserves ran out of Downs at the two foot line just seconds before the game ended. Tony booted five conversions missed one and ran for another when the pass from Center was High and he swept left end like a halfback. Well More like a Center. Here s How the scoring went a Payne pushed the nose of the Ball across from one Yard away with 7 30 left in the first period to Cap a 74-Yard drive from the opening Kickoff. Santangelo and Sophomore Sammy Flora Pound the left Side of the Ambridge defense on practically every play. A Ambridge fumbled on its first scrimmage play with Ken Aven claiming it for the a canes on the Bridger seven. It took Santangelo two carries to cover the distance and he again hit the Ambridge sore spot from a Yard out with six minutes left in the period. A Santangelo burst off the right Side Cut behind a Block by Payne and went 19 Yards for his second score after a weak Ambridge punt put new Castle in Possession on the Hurricane 43. A Payne intercepted Ambridge a first pass attempt Santangelo added a 37-Yard Jaunt and Keyes went three Yards untouched to make it 27-0 at the half. A a Fine punt return by Payne put new Castle in business on the Ambridge 42. Seven play later on fourth Down Hunt went wide left on a reverie pulled free of a Tacker and skipped into dirt. A passes of 16 Yards from Allan Joseph to Anthony Aven and of 19 Yards to Gigantic Jim Stoner set up the next Acore at the Ambridge 23. Payne burst up the Middle on a draw and carried two Ambridge defenders with him the final three Yards to make the count 41-0 after three periods. A Keyes finished off the Point production Early in the fourth stanza after Bill Howley fell on a Bridger Fumble. On first Down from the 24, Keyes broke off the right Side was hit but spun into the Clear and was away to the races. It was a night such at no new Castle team coach or fan has experienced in a Long time but the question remains to be answered next week at Beaver Falla. Good yes but How Good Hurricane breezes a new cattle was ranked seventh in the High school top 10 a published in fridays edition of Pittsburgh weekly sports. Sharon was sixth so the canes figure to jump up at least a notch. Ambridge entered new Castle territory for the first time with five my notes left in the half. Ken Aven who stands just 5-6, batted Down an Ambridge pass. Tony injured his knee slightly and was limited to extra Point duty in the second half. Ambridge a initial first Down on the ground came late in the third Quarter. The Bridgers have a Tough fullback in Rich Porfido. But apparently Little else As they finished with just one Yard Rushing.

The wildcats sparked by quarterback Mike Maricone and halfback Dave Myers were unstoppable As they rolled to their Sec id win. Myers gave the standing room Only crowd something to yell about when he returned the second half Kickoff 100 Yards for a touchdown that took All the tight out of the warriors. Myers also scored on a 44 melt Vard i pass from Maricone while Maricone tallied twice and halfback Merle Cunningham polished off the attack with a touchdown and four out of five extra Points. The offensive team Wasny to the whole show. The Wildcat defensive unit was just what its nicknames implies a a Wildcat. All county tackle Eric sch lager at 6-4. 240 pounds made shreds of mohawks offensive line while linebacker Frank Feola was in the Mohawk Back Field More often then some of the Warrior backs. Coach Frank Bongivengo could t Praise his Grinders enough. A your line was just Unbe live Able. They just Tore them to bits. We had a Little letdown in the second period but we came Back Strong in the third Quarter. This team is so unpredictable. Its hard to Tell if they re going to be up or not. I was a Little worried before the game that they might not be to pick out individual stars would be like Reading off the Wildcat roster. Everyone who went into the game could do no wrong. The defensive held Mohawk to minus 25 Yards total offence in the first half and one first Down that coming on a penalty. Overall Mohawk was held to a minus eight Yards on the ground and 39 Yards total offence. Thirty of those Yards came on the final play of the game a Long pass. It did no to take the wildcats Long to take command. After taking a Warrior punt on their own 44 they scored in five plays. Myers made a couple of Beautiful moves and got behind the Wildcat secondary and Maricone Laid the Ball into his arms for the 44-Yard to play. Cunningham split the uprights. Mohawk was deep in its own territory minutes later and forced to punt but Joe Micco s kick Only got out to the nine Yard line. Three plays later Maricone rolled to his right on a option and carried Over from the four. Again Cunningham was perfect on the kick. Mohawk had the Ball for one play after the kick fumbled and Frank Valenti jumped on the pigskin. Again it was Maricone who scored on a Bootleg play. He was hit twice once at the 10 and again at the goal line but still managed to score. Cunningham added his third and it was 21-0 with a minute still left in the first period. The wildcats eased up a Little in the second period although Mohawk perked up and looked More like an a1 b o g g i a a coached team. Myers broke the warriors Back As he fielded Micco a kick off right on the final Chalk Stripe and came up the Middle. He was hit and almost lost his balance at Midfield but straightened up and outraged three Mohawk defenders to the goal. Cunningham made it four in a Row on the conversion. Dave Pezzuolo gave the warriors fans a thrill on the ensuing Kickoff As he found Daylight and raced 55 Yards before Cunningham caught him from behind on the 20.
