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. First Row: Elbert Hendricks, Gene Goltz, Bill Iones, S. G.
