PORTS Wave past Mandeville 14-13 By LINDA FAIRBURN Tim Reporter some ways, the Green Wave of like the Tigers of LSU - under Both teams seem to come on the winning side. night in Mandevtile was a the Greenies as they an upset by defeating MandeviUe, 14-13. teams had their work cut out for the Skippers, trying to contain passing of Carl Disher and down (if that is possible) of and the Greenies stopping number one rusher in 13-AAAA, Curtis. and Brown had an excellent t, despite double coverage on and pass pressure on Dtsher. however was held by the defense to only 35 yards a scoreless first quarter, action up late in the second quarter as Rock, who played his best game consistently found openings line for short yardage gains first downs that edged the Wave closer to the goal line. to keep the defense on their Greenles varied their attack Using Rock on the ground and in the air. However, the Travts Tisdale of Mande- pressure on Disher. a fourth down pass to Brown and the Skippers took over and a sies of four downs. Again, the seemed to be gaining but a Disher fumble gave back to the Skippers. However, Russell Rock (who plays both picked off a Peter Shoenthaler to set up the Green Wave's first Brown and Cooper double Disher spotted his secondary Rock, for a 27 yard pass play Dtsher threw a talke-to Rock, Who was wide open, for the first score of the game. The PAT was blocked and so the score was 6-0 in favor of the Green Wave. Mandevtlle ran out the remaining time and thus the first half came to a close. "Traditionally, when we come over here to play, it is very difficult to bring home a victory," commented Coach Sidney Wilkinson of the Green Wave. With that in mind, the Greenies were taking no chances as Carl Disher went to work at the start of the second half, finding open receivers on the first series of plays. On a hard fought run by Otis Cooper after a Dlsher pass, the Green Wave's opportunt for a second score seemed likely as the ball was placed on the Skipper eight yard line. On fourth down and with 9:28 left to play in the third quarter, Disher found his favorb larget, John "The  Brown, who made a circus catch over his shoulder with two defenders hanging on him, and fell into the end zone for the touchdown. The PAT was no good, but a penalty gave PHS a second chance. This time a two point attempt was successful to Brown and the score was 14-0 in favor of the Green Wave. Wtth the clock running out in the third quarter, it was time for Mandevllle to put their act together and show some offensive tactics. The Green Wave's defense had other ideas, however, and key sacks by Darren Landry, bone crushing tackles by Paul Uter and Eddie LaCroin, and constant pressure applied by Mike Haight, made it hard for the Skippers to gain momentum. A surprise play by Mandeville, a fourth down fake punt and pass completion, caught the Greenles sleeping and set up the Skippers' first touchdown.

A series of mishaps almost caused the game to get a little out of control at the start of the final quarter. John Brown received a very obvious ]ate hit outside the penalty zone on a slippery track which could have resulted in a bad iniurv, vet no flag was thrown. A "very staged" dock toward the end of the game after a penalty had been called added to a few tempers flaring on the sidelines. And, oh yes, we must not forget the lifting of Otis Cooper's shoe from the playing field as he was tackled, taken by an unidentified Skipper player to the opposite side of the field where it took a State Trooper, for sure not the officials, to recover it several plays later. Finally, when play resumed at a normal tempo, the Skippers found a wide open field and QB Peter Schoen- thalter took no time in scampering 45 yards for his second touchdown of the night The PAT was no good due to a penalty (QB In motion) and so the score now was 14-13 in favor of PHS. The Skippers, in a last minute attempt, tried an on-sides kick and with luck on their side, recovered the ball. up with the crucial play that changed the completion of the game. Mandevllle, with a chance to win the contest, completed a fourth down pass, enough for the first down. On the next series, a second down play could have resulted in the winning touchdown. But at the last minute John Brown made a stab for the perfectly thrown pass and batted the ball to the ground. On fourth down, a pass was thrown but again Brown was there to make the stop on the one yard line. The Greenies then took possession and breathed a sigh of relief as the clock ticked the final seconds away. "There were no exciting plays, just a tough ball game for us. Rock was out- standing tonight and Disher had another fine game. Our defense came through for us at critical times," said Coach Wilkinson. "I thought Mark Rtdgel, Paul Uter, along with Eddie LaCroin, Mike Haight and Darren Landry, all contributed to our strong defensive effort. The receptions to Cooper were extremely vital and of course one can never say enough about John Brown." The Greenies thus brought home a slim victory by downing Mandevtlle 14- ended up on the Skippers four from the one yard line to make the Momentum was now with the Skippers, 13. Next week, the Green Wave travels line. score 14-6 The PAT was good by Ryan but the Green Wave once again came to Bogalusa for another district game. 1:07 left in the second quarter, Conference 5th 6th graders lose 14-0 By MA1RGIE ARD Times Reporter Jr. Conferenc 5th and graders playmt tlur first football SaturdaF, Oct. 11 ainst a C =In prc-surgcry conferences.
