In Upset Victory
Suffering a 3-0 defeat by
Batesburg-Leesville in Lexington
County's first Sportsarama, the
Wildcats embarked on their regular
season which yielded a record of
Wildcat Hollow provided the
scene for the Wildcat's blast against
Cardinal Newman 70-62 Halfback
Jimmy Bax and halfback Pat Davis
led the offense with three touch-
downs each,' Tommy Mathias keyed
the defense with two interceptions.
ln the first game away from
home, Lexington dumped
Traveler's Rest 34-0 Due to the
effective defensive plays, the
opposing offense was held to six
first downs and 66 yards rushing.
Odie Hawl was the highlight offen-
sively,' he completed 11 out of 13
pass attempts for 186 yards.
Returning home for the third
game, the Cats handed Andrew
Jackson a 22-6 loss. However, four
Wildcat turnovers failed to change
the gameis outcome.
Third-ranked lrmo rolled into
town with three victories against
4-AAAA Conference schools
tucked under their helmets. Pre-
pared mentally and physically to
meet them, Uwe VWldcat defense
allowed only one touchdown in
the first half, which was scored
with only 51 seconds remaining Dur-
ing the last minute of the third
quarter, Lexington's Jimmy Bass
plunged into the end zone,' Mackie
Bedenbaugh added the PA T, mak-
ing the score 7-Z ln the fourth
period Bedenbaugh missed an
attempted field goal,' but Darrell
Sharpe recovered an lrmo fumble,
thus allowing Lexington another
field goal attempt. This time the
ball split the uprights and Lexing-
ton hung on for a 10-7 upset

receive a pass in spite of the close defen-
sive coverage by Cardinal-Newman.
Searching for the open hole, Gil Hendrix
returns an lrmo kickoff while "Gazelle"
Burnett makes a key block.
Hoping the Wildcats would be
careless after their admirable win
over lrmo, VWnnsboro arrived at the
Hollow. Two touchdowns put Lex-
ington ahead 14-0, but Winnsboro
retaliated with two quick touch-
downs, making the score 14-12.
However, their efforts to attain a
lead were ineffectual as the final
score was 44-12.
Traveling to Langley-Bath-
Clearwater for the sixth game, the
Wildcats found the going tougher
than expected Mackie Bedenbaugh
kicked a 25 yard field goal early in
the first quarter,' Lexington
received its only touchdown from
Jimmy Bass late in the fourth
quarter, and the game ended with
Lexington on top 9-0.
ln the second of three tough
road games, the Lexington Wildcats
found Batesburg-Leesville too much
to handle. After trailing 7-0 at
halftime, the Wildcat offense
quickly put six points on the board
in the third quarter. A penalty
against Lexington nullified the
extra point,' a second attempt from
the 37 yardline fell short of the
goal posts and the Wildcats suffered
a 7-6 loss.
At Saluda the Wildcats again
failed to put the necessary ingre-
dients together for a victory. The
13-12 defeat eliminated the Cats
from the Conference 3-AAA race
for the championship. By employ-
ing a ground attack, Lexington
broke its two game losing streak
with a 31-24 win over the Bulldogs
of Newberry. A wet Held and
slippery ball ended any chance of
aerial attack, so the Wildcat offense
ground out 130 yards rushing and
nine first downs.
ln the Hnal game of the season
Lexington yielded a narrow victory
to Thurmond Despite the efforts
of Jimmy Bass and Danny Ezelle,
the Wildcats' attempts to gain the
lead were futile.
