SEASON REVIEW By Tom Burditt ABILENE 7- BRECKENRIDGE 56 ln a pre-season tilt the Eagles found the Breckenridge Buckies far too powerful to cope with. i From the first the Warbirds were in deep water, with the Buckies scoring very ofteng l however, late in the fourth quar- ter Smith broke off right tackle and reached the goal un- touched. The point after touch- i down was good. This was the only Eagle score. l l Smith goes around right end ABILENE UfSWEETWATER l9 Operating behind a stalwart line, the Mustangs of Sweetwater swept over the Eagles with a bril- liant running attack. Although the line held for a short time, the experienced boys from Sweetwater finally pushed over a score in the first quarter. Scoring again in the first and third, the Mustangs were riding highg nevertheless, the Eagles scared them in the fourth when they covered a fumble on the op- ponents' 40-yard line. Passes from Dalton to Sellers and Iones gave the Yllfarbirds a first down outside the penetration line. After losing ten yards in three downs, a last-down pass for ten yards came short of a first down. The defensive work of the line and the passing combination of Dalton to Sellers were outstanding. ABILENE O--THOMAS IEFFERSON l3 ln the third nocturnal tilt of the year, the Eagles suffered another defeat at the hands of the San Antonians. Neither of the leff's two touchdowns came from long bruising drives, but were made in short order in the closing minutes of the first half. The occasional offensive power of Sellers and Dalton was all the Warbirds had to rely upon, and only once did the Eagles threaten, going to the Mustangs' 5-yard line before giving the ball up after four unsuccessful attempts for a score. Abilene seemed to play the lefferson Mustangs an even matched game at all times, making twelve first downs to the eight of San Antonio, but never found the glint that would have sent them in search of pay dirt. By this time, however, the boys had learned many tricks they would never learn anywhere but in actual play. Narrell pulls through a tight spot f rf- rf W ' l Yea, Team! Eagles, Fight! Yea, Team!
