"It was a gamble on their part, giving us the pass, but they did step our running game. They have such a super- quick defensive front, with an ex- ceptional nose guard (Donald Jones) and a fine linebacker (Ran Jones). "Thank goodness for an arm," Norris concluded. While the Tiger offense was sput- tering on the ground and thriving through the friendly skies, the Malakoff was back on the top of their game, holding the Lions to two yards rushing and 35 passing. Tarver's passing yardage combined with back up Todd Shelton's enabled the Tigers to a 192-37 total yards advantage. The Tigers also won the first down battle, seven-five. The Tigers and Lions settled into their "a punt for a punt and a fumble for a fumble" routine in the opening minutes. Before the first quarter became history, a slim Lion Stadium crowd bad "seen six punts and two fumbles. The abrupt number of possession changes was a result of tenacious defense play by both units. Kyle Kilman, Tom Byers, Ran Speed, Elmer Reed, Billy Whiteley and Ran Denis led Malakoff's defensive charge, while the Jones duo, Hubert Busby, Derek Lancaster and Albert Randal were Teague's top defensive bands in the early going. non-, -- Bobcat Louis a handoff on his own 2 runs for a 98 yard as Bobcat defenders clear .-ame lay alas, by a referee, a Bobcat corn- foul. and woe-begotten sighs from the Bobcat Cross Roads' fans reacted likewise. In contrast, Iola's bleachers thun- dered with cheering Bulldog sup- porters. This disappointing setback in the first quarter set the tone for the rest of the game as the Bulldogs chewed up the Bobcats, 33-0. Floyd did manage to lead the Bobcats in 69 yards worth of rushes that weren't called back. His teammate Fred Winston was a close second with 59 yards, according to statistician Jerry Logan. ;ive Lineman i : : :( msive Lineman see any problem and leading a wild wrong with plan by the light of a Harry Neale, the coach of the Van- couver Canucks, explained his limitations by saying: "Last season we couldn't win at home, and this year we couldn't win on the road. 110 E. Mitcham, Malakoff 24 HOUR WRECKER SERVICE TIRES & TUBES MONDAY-FRIDAY ALL DAY SATURDAY Speed set up the Tigers' first score with 7:23 left in the half when he recovered a Lion fumble on the Teague 14. Three plays later Tarver lofted a skyscraping aerial from the nine to big John McCain. The 6-foot-4 tight end hauled in the Tarver pass nine yards deep in the end zone to put the Tigers on top with 5:57 to go in the half. Gary Cockerman blocked the PAT to leave the Tigers in front 6-0. The Tigers were recpients of another Teague fumble on the ensuing kick-off when Joe Davis pounced on a Lloyd Knight bobble in the Teague 37. Following two short rushing attempts by Scott Clendenning and Whiteley, Clint Clements made a beautiful diving catch of a Tarver pass on the Lions' nine-yard stripe. Three unsuccessful running plays forced the Tigers into a fourth and goal situation from the seven. Tarver baf- fled the Teague defense, throwing across the field to Clendenning in the corner of the end zone. Clements was true with the PAT to give the Tigers a 13-0 lead at the half. The Lions provided the second half's only serious scoring threat midway through the third period. Following a short 17-yard Vic Kirkland punt from the Tiger 14, the Lions began on the visitors' 31. Quarterback Glenn Price tossed a 17-yard strike to Donald Jones to move the Lions to the 14. Ran Jones Floyd also highlighted Bobcat defensive action with a total of 10 tackles and assists. Jimmy Stripling pulled down eight, and Jeff Tunnell, seven, according to co-statistician Robert Stripling. The loss drops Cross Roads' record to I-7. Iola first scored with 7:41 left in the first quarter on a 30-yard run by Marc Brown. A two-point conversion attempt was good for an 8-0 initial lead. Next, with 1:39 left, Dewayne Pavelock tossed a screen pass to Scotty McKinney for another touchdown play, followed by a good PAT which brought the score to 17-0. Second quarter action was limited to an lola field goal which tossed in three points for good measure to expand the lead to 20-0. Iola kept the pace going in the third quarter with a touchdown pass received by Mark Thornton with 4:03 left. AN EASY CATCII--Tiger John McCain made them both Friday night on Russell Tarver passes to the endzone. The Tiger won the game against Teague 13-0.

Jones tried the right end sweep on second down only lose possession into the waiting arms of Whiteley. The Tigers took over with 3:49 left in the third period. Remaining action was nothing more than punt-punt, fumble-fumble as both units' defenses dominated. The Tigers sprinkled in a few medium range passes to keep the chilled, but dozing, crowd from slipping into total sleep. The Tigers continue their hunt for 18AAA supremacy this week as they journey to Palestine to take on the Westwood Panthers.

Next, Bobcat Vewaine Cain took the ETSU Lady Lions ball for a run until he fumbled, a Bulldog picked it up, ran and fumbled, termed "Smartest" East Texas State University basket- ball coach Susie Knause describes her 1981-82 Lady Lions as "the smartest" group she has coached in a period of time. "Before, I had to spend most of the season trying to get the team to learn the plays," Knause said. "At the present time, we are playing and executing well." Knause is relying on returnees Charlita Smith (5-9, Sr., Alvarado) and Rachael Tucker (5-10, Soph., College Station-A&M Consolidated) to lead the team. Three transfers from Kilgore Junior College are expected to take up slack left by the vacancy of seven lettermen. and then Floyd got his turn until a Bulldog's hand apparently became imbedded in his face mask and the drag resistance wore down his running ability. Fourth quarter action started with Steve Cowan squashing Pavelock into the ground, thwarting a running play. Naught did that do, as the Bulldog came back to life to prance to a touchdown with 9:32 left. A good PAT brought the score to 33-0. Cain attempted two unsuccessful passes to Myron Green as the game wound down. Both times the ball seemed to soar through the air with the greatest of ease. Tougher, however, were the landings.
