VARSITY FOOTBALL The MUS Varsity team this year traveled to Horseshoe Lake in August for a week of training camp. There they prepared mentally and physically for one of the hardest sea- sons in MUS history. Coaches Rudolph and Thorn instituted a new offense centered around the successful " I " formation. At the beginning of the season it looked like the Owls were going to have a fine season due to the great spirit of the boys. The Owl ' s opener against the Tigers of Whitehaven proved to be the toughest game of the season. Whitehaven, state-ranked in the top ten, outweighed AA.U.S. consider- ably, but the determined Owls wanted the game badly. However, our chances were spoiled by four key injuries and White- haven ' s capitalizing on early mistakes. Trow Gillespie, Rick Ferguson, Pete Whittington, and Tim Treadwell were all sidelined with injuries in the first half. White- haven recovered a fumbled punt attempt early in the game and went on to score. After a long run both for touchdowns, the Tigers setted back with a comfortable 20-0 lead at halftime. After a third-quarter Tiger score, a stub- born AA.U.S. eleven scored on an inspired drive. Tommy Thompson filling in for in- jured Gillespie, passed to sustain the drive. Frank Tenent plunged over from the two yard line for the touchdown and then kicked the extra point. Whitehaven added another touchdown to make the final score 34-7. Still suffering from the previous game ' s injuries, the Owls rode to Westwood in hopes of a vidory. However, the game was strictly a defensive contest, ending in 0-0 draw. The Owls received the opening kickoff. On the first play from scrimmage, quarterback Tommy Thompson suffered a serious wrist injury that put him out of action for the rest of the season. Fullback Frank Tenent took over the controls but wasn ' t able to lead the Owls over the goal line. In the second quarter we moved the ball down near the Westerners ' end zone but were unable to score. Later, a great run by Tenent was called back by a clipping penalty. Steve Minkin and AAacKee were defensive standouts as always during the season. The Owls finally entered the win column at the first home game against the Harding Academy Lions. An outstanding offense, along with the return of Rick Ferguson and Trow Gillespie, was the deciding factor in the ball game. The Owls drew first blood as they took the opening kickoff and scored four downs later on a 25 yard run by Tim Treadwell. AA.U.S. showed no mercy through- out the rest of the game, adding 21 points in the second quarter and 17 points in the second half. Trow Gillespie, Kent Wunder- lich, Frank Tenent, and Tim Treadwell each got touchdowns. Outstanding efforts were made by Kent Wunderlich, who made a sen- sational 67 yard interception and run for a TD, and Steve AAinkin, who lead the defense in shutting out the Lions. Frank " the Foot " Tenent showed his great kicking ability with five extra points and a twenty yard field goal. The final score was 44-0. The Kingsbury game showed that AA.U.S. could hold its own against the stronger city teams, but a few untimely mishaps destroyed our chances for a well-deserved victory. The Owls had a great deal of trouble containing the great running of AII-AAemphis Falcon Terry Padgett. Early in the game our 120
