II &nn s Bet: Tigers 14- Mabank 6 ................................ - ~ The Malakoff News, Thursday, Sept. 15, 1983-'9A a By BENNY ROGERS Charity continued in Brownsbero Friday night. Leading Brownsboro, 6-0, and completely dominating after three quarters, the Malakoff Tigers gave away another game. This time it was a pair of botched-up snaps-from-center on punting situations in the fourth quarter that led to a 13-6 defeat in the renewal of Henderson County's oldest rivalry.. On hack-to-back punting situations deep in their own end of the field, the Tigers were unable to get the center back to punter Michael Riddle, times Riddle was swarmed by a host of Bear tacklers, giving the hosts excellent field position. Brownsbero scored both times. As a result of the Tiger miscues, Brownsboro traveled five and 18 yards for touchdowns. The kicking game errors over- shadowed anothe strong showing by the MHS defense. The Tigers held the Bears to just 46 total yards and two first downs in the first half. The Tiger defensive unit, John Tanner, Randy Lee and Jason Riddle in particular, camped out in the Brownsboro backfield. Donnie Williams, Bart Ray, Todd Locke, Marry Wilson and Danny Wilson were equally as effective. While the defense was all-but shutting down the Bears, the offense was in one of those "move between the 30-yard line grooves." Marty Wilson and Locke assaulted the Bears for gains of five and six yards a whack as the Tigers consumed the clock. The Tigers helped the Bears in stopping themselves, though. Brownsboro's defender came up with the big plays to stymie several Tiger drives, but it was once again the tur- nover that delivered the crucial blows. Four drives ended in fumbles and two others on interceptions. Brownsbero's bleak-looking future turned around on the first play of the final quarter. With the Tigers facing fourth and seven on their own 25, Riddle dropped back in punting formation. The Tiger punter was forced to try a Houdini-like escape after the snap-from center bounced between his legs. BHS' Gene Nitson led a charge of Bears tacklers, swarming Riddle on the Tiger five-yard marker. After Lee Warren gained one-yard off-tackle, Paul Montgomery span-off four Tiger tacklers at the three and trotted to paydirt. Scott Williams' PAT was true, putting the Bears on top, 7-6, with 11:11 remaining. Malakoff's troubles with the snap- from-center surfaced again four minutes later. With Lee, who normally handles the centering chores on punting situations still out with an elbow injury suffered in the first half, still out, Riddle was once again forced to run down a snap on a fourth-and-eight on the Tiger 38. Kevin January and Kenneth Smith hauled clown the retrieving Riddle on the Malakoff 1B-yard line to give the Bears first and 10 with 7:41 to go. Four plays later, fullback Stacey Johnson crashed in from-the-one for the score. Johnson set up the one-yard scoring run with a big 15-yard gain off left tackle on second down. Williams' PAT was blocked, but the Bears had all they needed for the win, 13-6, with 5:47 left. The Tigers managed only one mild threat the rest of the way. After Brant Stenovitch returned a Williams punt from his own 25 to the Malakoff 41, the Tigers quickly moved into Brownsboro territory on a personal foul ponaRy against the Bears. Tiger quarterback Danny Wilson attempted to find Scott Clendening near the Tiger sideline, but the pass sailed wide of the target. Clendenlng, however, was the victim of a late hit and the Tigers moved to the Brown- sboro 35 on the 15-yard step-off. Gene Nitson trapped Wilson for a loss of six yards on first down, forcing the Tigers into a must-pass situation. Wilson filled the friendly skies three more times, but was unable to find an open receiver and the Bears took over on downs with 37 seconds left. The Tigers moved in for their touchdown after Tanner forced a Williams fumble on the Brownsboro 40- yard line and Ray recovered. The Tigers proceeded to mount their best drive of the game, covering the distance in I0 plays. Utilizing the running of Marty Wilson and Locke the Tigers ripped off yar- dage at four and five yards a tote. Wilson galloped for an ll-yard pick-up on the drive's fourth play to move the Tigers to the 13-yard line. After surviving a fourth and inches situation on the BHS four, Locke gave the Tigers a 6-0 lead at the 2:46 mark of the second quarter, bursting up-the- middle from three yards out. Dennis Flowers' PAT was blocked by Smith. The scoreboard remained unbethered until Brownsboro's fourth quarter touchdowns. The Bears found the Malakoff defense undeniable, while the Tigers found BHS dentable, but not breakable. Both teams had drives stopped as a result of turnovers and stalled due to penalties. Marty Wilson was the game's top rusher, stepping off 69 yards on 13 carries. Locke finished with 65 on 16 assignments. Johnson was the top Bear rusher with 31 yards on nine trips. Williams was eight of 15 in the passing department for 91 yards.
