The passing arm of master faker Nick Perales
sparked the Bucs to an easy 24-l3 conquest of un-
defeated Austin High of Houston in Buc Stadium on
Octoher 2. Perales racked up a total of 9 out of ll
heaves completed, for ll5 yards.
The first guarter saw the Bucs punch theirway
68 yards after the opening kick in i5 plays. Sanchez
cracked for 5 from the 8 and then banged tackle again for the tally. The try for
for point was wide. Austin's first effort at offense was a 28-yard pass.
ln the second guarter five more Austin plays carried to the 23, but a l5-yard
penalty killed the try. The Fiucs had the hall on a good 2X3 of the firsttwo stan-
zas and clicked off 32 plays to Austin's l6.
Early in the third guarter Hydrick cut down a Mustang hall carrier on the
Houston fr on a fourth down try, and Shugart ploughed over. Austin punted and
Miller marched 52 yards for another TD. ln the next touchdown drive Perales
passed 27yards to Meharg. Stevens made it to the 3 and Shugart went over again.
The fourth guarter had just begun when Stevens returned the Mustangs punt
to the 47 and the Bucs scored in 9 plays-Sanchez doing the damage. With four
minutes left Austin scored on a 35-yard pass and 3line plays. On the second
play after the kickoff the Mustangs recovered a Buc fumble and ran 42 yards for
another TD. The try for point was no good. The Bucs were driving for another
score on the 7 when the game ended.

A surprisingly strong North Side team and a run of miscues and penalties
held the Bucs to a lone touchdown and a6-O win over Forth Worth in Pvuc Stadium
on September 26.
The first guarter was a slow one, with the Steers racking up only one first
down, after taking the opening kick, before punting the bull to the Miller 46. The
Bucs proceeded to drive to the North Side l4 aftertwo penalties and two fumbles.
The Steers couldn't do much better, but their punt rolled away to the Miller 20
and half the North Side line pinned it there. The Bucs held the line, however,
and the Steers made only five in four tries.
The second guarter was the one that really counted as Graf gathered in a
Steer pass and raced the ball back to the Miller 43. After a 15 yard penalty, an
I8 yard Perales-to-Meharg pass put the ball on the Forth Worth 46.0n a delayed
handoff Graf. stepped over, around, and away from defenders for the TD.Perales'
kick was a wide.
The third guarter was another slow one-neither side was able to move with-
in the opponents 35 yard line. The Bucs staged a red-hot rally in the dying
second of the third, moving from their 20 to the Steers' l2, but a penalty set
them back and the ball passed to the Steers.
The fourth guarter had the fans really on edge as the Steers uncovered a fine
air attack with only a minute remaining. However, they failed to score.

Cn October 9the Battling Bucs came through with
the State's No. l upset of the season, beating the
Port Arthur Yellow Jackets 7-6 before 16,000 fans in
Buc Stadium who didn't move a muscle till the game
The first guarter featured the great defensive work
of the Fiucs. However, each time they started a drive
fumbles occured and Jackets recovered. Late in the first Bullard recovered a
Jacket fumble on their 20. Perales' passing game didn't click and the Jackets
took over on their l5.
ln the second guarter the Bucs again tai l ed to make the breaks pay off.
Perales connected with Stevens for a first down on the lfi. Graf sneaked through
to the 9 and things went haywire. Two Perales fumbles resulted in port Arthur
finally taking over on the 20. Taylor of Dort Arthur sped 53 yards before Graf
pushed him out on the Buc 27. Miller held and took over on the 20.
Early in the third guarter Graf ran a Jacket try for afield goal back to the
., 20. Then the Jackets recovered a Buc fumble and a pass netted them 17 yards.
Q The fourth guarter was only 47 seconds old when the Jackets finally went
fl 'A over for their TD and missed the extra point. Later Perales heaved along one

gg .i,..1 falling to the ground. The pass was good for 40 yards. Two Sanchez carries
if " moved to the two and Shugart then so perfectly faked the ball he wasn't even
touched as he went over. Dueitt converted to win a gamethat most fans wouldn't
want to live through again!
