It took an unbelievable fourth quarter
passing play to do it, but the Blue team
came up with what was necessary and
won yesterday's annual Blue-White
spring football game, 15-14.
Trailing 14-9 with just 10 minutes left
in the game the Blues had the ball on
the Whites' 46 yard line. On 1st and 10,
sophomore quarterback Brian Dickey
pitched out to tailback Stanley Edwar-
ds'who looked downfield and threw it up
for grabs just as he was tackled. Inten-
ded receiver Rodney Feaster looped
back, picking the ball off a defender's
ftigertips at the twenty.
Veaster sprinted towards the end
zone but coughed up the ball when he
was hit on the five. The ball squirted in-
to the end zone where tight end Mark
Schmerge recovered for the score. The
conversion attempt failed.

TD highlights grid clash

The small cluster of fans who filed in-
"to the massive stadium yesterday af-
ternoon were treated to a spirited if
somewhat sloppy performance by the
Wolverine gridders. A blocked punt,
three interceptions, and three fumbles
kept things interesting between the big
gainers and sparkling defensive plays
that punctuated the afternoon. Quar-
terbacks on both sides were repeatedly
sacked by the charged-up defensive
units, while Harlan Huckleby and
Russell Davis both scored long touch-
downs - 20'and 24 yards, respectively.
The Blue team opened the game's
scoring with 4:38 left in the first quar-
ter. When Brian Dickey's offensive unit
stalled at the White 33 yard line, senior
Greg Willner came and popped through
a 43-yard field goal, giving the Blues a
3-0 lead.
Early in the second quarter the White
offense, led by junior quarterback John

Wangler, loosened up and began to
move on the Blue defense. The Whites
were inside the Blue 40 when a Wangler
pass over the middle was picked off by
standout linebacker Ron Simpkins.
But the Whites were not to be denied.
After getting the ball back, they were
stacked up with a 3rd and 2 at their 39
when Huckleby exploded up the middle
for 15 yards to the Blue 45. There they
stalled again, running up against a 4th
and 2. The call was a delay to Huckleby,
and the tailback burst through the line
for 10 yards.
After three more gives to Huckleby,
the Whites had 3rd and goal to go at the
7. This time Wangler rolled out and lof-
ted a pass to fullback Larry Reid who
bulled over. Placekicker Bryan Virgil
converted and the Whites were up 7-3
with 4:30 remaining in the half.
At the start of the second half, the
Whites were anxious to get back to
business. On their first possession they
moved right down into Blue territory,
the main damage done on Wangler's 19-
yard strike to tight end Gene Johnson.
Unfortunately, some of the damage was
done to Wangler, as he was knocked out
of the game on the play. I
Sophomore Jim Breaugh came over
from the Blue team and let Reid plunge
the ball down to the 20. On first and 10,
Breaugh pitched to Huckleby, and the
tailback showed the explosive speed
that earned him the nickname "H-
Bomb". He took the ball in full stride
and blew past everyone into the end
zone untouched. Another extra point by
Virgil gave the Whites a 14-3 lead.
At this point, the Blue squad decided
to get back into the game and did it in a

big way. The Blue defense smothered
the White offense and blocked their
punt attempt, recovering the loose ball
on the White 43.
Dickey u.sed his tailback Edwards to
move them closer to a score, grinding it
out to the 24. Then, with a fourth and 2,
Davis ran a quick hitter off tackle and
directly into the end zone in his finest
style. Dickey tried the two-point con-
version but overthrew Edwards in the
end zone. With 3:50 left in the third
quarter, the Blue trailed by a 14-9
On the ensuing kick-off the Whites
were called for clipping which bottled
them up deep in their own end. The
Blues took over following a punt on the
White 44, but they were unable to
capitalize on their good field position as
a Dickey aerial was picked-off by Tom
Seaborn. The Whites again failed to
move and were forced to punt.
The Blue team rapidly moved the ball
on the ground against the Whites. With
little more than 10:00 left in the game,
Edwards burst into White territory with
a five yard gain into the 49. Davis
followed with an eight-yard gallop to
the 41, where the bizarre touchdown oc-
curred to win the game.
Huckleby led the pack in the rushing
department, gaining 95 yards on 23 at-
tempts. Davis picked up 74 yards in 13
tries, and Reid managed 56 yards in 15
In passing, Wangler completed seven
of his 13 passes for 69 yards with one in-
terception. Dickey was two for nine for
12 yards with an interception. Jim
Breaugh was 0 for 4 with an intercep-

Five Yanks fined
NEW YORK-Five New York Yankee players were fined an undisclosed
amount by the team yesterday for missing a "Welcome Home" luncheon
honoring the world champions the day before.
Although Yankee President Al Rosen refused to confirm the fines, it was
apparent that the players-Thurman Munson, Graig Nettles, Sparky Lyle,
Roy White and Mickey Rivers-all had been hit with disciplinary measures.
"I'm not a punitive guy," said Rosen, who was watching yesterday's
game against the Chicago White Sox with Yankee owner George Stenbren
"We don't make that many demands on the players. We felt this was a
proper type thing for the team to be involved with. It was a charitable affair,
a 'Welcome Home' luncheon. We owe something to the people of this are who
supported our team," added Rosen.
"It's funny," he said, "everybody's waiting for an explosion on this club.
I'd just like us to get a good winning streak going."
