ABILENE 28-BIG SPRING 7
Abilene revealed a potent running attack in defeating Big Spring 28-7,
after having tied them in their previous encounter. The second time they
gained possession of the ball the Eagles, led by Charles lones, crashed
through the Steer line for short gains until they had advanced the seventy
yards necessary to tally. When the ball changed hands after the kickoff,
Abilene reeled off three consecutive first downs to reach the Big Spring 16-
yard line. Erom there McClure, with Charles lones leading interference, skirt-
ed his own right end to score. A few plays later Gilliam Stovall attempted a
lateral to McClure, which was intercepted by Bethel of Big Spring, who
dashed unhampered forty-five yards to tally. The Eagles took the offensive
after the kickoff and once more scored without losing possession of the ball.
The last thirty yards was covered in one stroke by Sewell on a quick-opening
play through left guard. Neither team threatened in the third period, but
when Abilene gained possession of the ball on the Big Spring 45-yard line in
the fourth quarter, they made enough short but consistent gains to score.
Sewell added the extra point after all four touchdowns.
ABILENE 7-SAN ANGELO 15
ln the second Angelo game, the Eagles stood with their backs to the wall
during the entire first half because of the Bobcats' superb kicking, from which
Angelo gained enough advantage to score in the second quarter. Abilene
came out after the half and marched to a touchdown without losing posses-
sion of the ball, Bennett pulling a pass from the Angelo safety man's hands
for the tally. Sewell's successful point conversion put them in the lead 7-6.
A few plays later McClure's punt was blocked in the end zone to be recov-
ered by an Eagle for a touchback, thereby placing Angelo ahead 8-7. On
their second touchdown drive of the fourth chapter, the Bobcats tallied to com-
plete the final record l5-7.
