!fill L4--The Mah~off News, Thursday, Nov. 5, INI Weleome baek exes! Tiger foes remain the same g ennY P'cJec " It was a strange week, to say the least. And it ap- propriately~came to an end on Halloween Eve. Before we sort out what happened to the Tigers in Palestine and look at their very slim chances at sharing the District ISAAA crown, let's take a look hack. It began around midnight on Satur- day before the game with Westwood when a vehicle loaded with three var- sity Tigers, one jayvee player, a majorette and the Tiger mascot failed to negotiate a wicked curve on the Star Harbor highway and crashed into a nearby ditch. When the injuries were totaled, Margaret Costlow suffered a spinal injury and paralysis, hack-up quarterback a .broken jaw, lineman Cary Jackson a dash to the arm, fullback Billy Whiteley severe leg and shoulder discomfort, Lane Speake a broken nose and Shelia Reid a dislocated tooth. But, it did not end there. Shortly after Thursday afternoon's practice, starting safety James Mastin was involved in an auto accident as his vehicle was ram- med from behind by a car traveling at a speed near 60 miles per hour. Mastin, hospitalized for bumps and bruises, was forced to miss the game with Westwood. Shelton also missed the game and is lost for the season. And if all of this was not enough, the rains came. Oh, did the rains come. Shortly after the pep rally concluded and as the Tigers hoarded the bus for the trip to Palestine, the heavens opened and a week filled with beautiful fall weather began to deteriorate. While Friday night's rainfall and Wee,wood's 16-9 victory did not totally wash away the Tigers' title hopes, it did dampen them somewhat. The Tigers now need an outbreak of miracles to gain a share of the crown. What's got to happen? Westwood has to defeat league-leading Crockett tomorrow night and the Tigers must do like-wise to Fairfield. 'Next, Rusk would have to down the Panthers on the season's final Friday, while the Tigers are beating Crockett. If all this happens then you are looking at the possibility of a three or four-way tie for the marbles. If Crockett wins tomorrow night the title is theirs. And as complicated and silly as it sounds, don't laugh. Stranger things have happened. Realistically, though, it's improbable the need scenario will unfold, but as long as there is hope there is reason to play. Please pay at- tention Tigers. First, please keep in mind as low and dejected as you may feel two games remain on the schedule and who knows what will ha ppen in those two weeks. Play your cards against Fairfield as if the title is on the line and perhaps it will be the final week against Crockett. You know that Westwood is cavable of beating Crockett and that Rusk is capable of doing the same to Westwood. In other words, don't turn out the lights, the party is definitely not over. Something the local gridsters have to guard against this week is a human- natured letdown. Hopefully, the possibility of the tie for the crown will serve as motivation If not there's the fear of watching an impressive season that could end at 8-2 turn into a 6-4 reading. Sometimes fear is the best motivation for an athlete. Let's hope so. What the Tigers must also remember as they prepare for Fairfield is that the Eagles, too, cling to the hopes of the needed scenario unfolding. And despite being blanked in their first two 18AAA outings, the Eagles did knock off the same Rusk team last week that defeated the Tigers 26-6 a few weeks back. Need I say more? Kick-off for the 1981 Homecoming battle with Fairfield is set for 7:30 p.m. and hopefully Tiger fans who have set- tied into their typical "fair weather" groove will pack Tiger Stadium with enthusiastic support. The Tigers, more than ever before, need your support. I'll be there. Will you?
