WASHINGTON (P)-Joe Theis-.
mann shocked St. Louis with a
30-yard scoring pass to John
Pergine on a fake field-goal at-
tempt and rookie Mike Thomas
bulled his way for two touch-
downs to lead the Washington
Redskins to a 27-17 victory overj
the Cardinals last night. j
Theismann's touchdown strike
and Thomas' 100 yards rushing
in the nationally televised Na-
tional Football League game
overcame an electrifying 93-yard
scamper by Terry Metcalf with
the second-half kickoff and a
48-yard pass from Jim Hart to
Mel Gray for the Cardinals' two
touchdowns.
Thomas' second touchdown of
the game, coming with 10:58
remaining in the game, snapped
a 17-17 tie and enabled the Red-
skins to raise their record to 3-1
and stay one game back of un-
beaten Dallas in the National
Conference East. St. Louis, the
defending division champion,
fell to 2-2.
The one-yard b u r s t by
Thomas, the Redskins' heir
apparent to heroic but batter-
ed running back Larry Brown,
came after Billy Kilmer had
comvleted passes of 19 yards
to Charley Taylor and 18, 11
and 9 yards to Roy Jefferson,
putting the ball on the Cardi-
nals' doorstep.

the St. Louis 42-yard line and
Brown's 16-yard burst.
The game was a lackluster
affair until the second - half
kickoff, when Metcalf took the
ball on his own seven-yard line,
swept to his left, streaked
through a bevy of Washington
tacklers, then angled to his
right and outraced Larry Jones
to the right corner of the end
zone, tying the game 10-10.
Washington didn't wait long
to get back ontop. Kilmer
passed 13" yards to Jefferson
and Thomas and Brown alter-
nated on rushes to move the
ball to the St. Louis 30.
The drive stalled there -
but only for an instant. On
came Theismann - Washing-
ton's third - string quarter-
back behind Kilmer and Ran-
dy Johnson - to hold for
Moseley's apparent kick. And
on, too, carne Pergine, a
linbacker who blocks on such
kicks.
There was never any question
in Theismann's mind as to
what to do with the ball when
he took the snap. He leaped to
his feet, rolled to his right and
found Pergine all alone on the
Cardinals' 20-yard line. Pergine
rambled down the right sideline
for the touchdown that made it
17-10.

On Michigan's team the responsibilities of leadership fall'
on the members of the defense. They are both the strength and
the maturity of Michigan, football.
They set the example against Michigan State that according
to coach Bo Schembechler, turned the game around. The crucial
point came midway through the third quarter when State's Rich
Baes recovered Dwight Hicks' fumble on an attempted punt
reception.

' The kind of character that the defense provides has been the I

grasp of tacklers immensely bigger; fights, struggles and crawls
for yardage with poewr he simply does not possess.
After the State game Leach said, "Gordon's been a great
leader all year. He's a great inspiration for our offense."
Lytle, meanwhile, playing at fullback where he doesn't even
belong and lacking size and strength, has made holes and power-,
ed for yards that even Ed Shuttlesworth might not have gained.I
Offense maturing
This toughness and determination prompted Coach Schem-
bechler to liken the junior to a certain member of the defensive
unit. "Lytle reminds me offensively of (wolfman Don) Dufek on
defense," remarked Bo. "He has great character and is a great
athlete."
The examples these two men have set this season rubbed
off on the offense Saturday against MSU. The showing was
by no means spectacular, but it evidenced increasing matur-
ity. Often times stopped by fumbles and other failures, the
offense never lost composure and finally put together a
touchdown drive in the fourth quarter.-
The determination shown by Leach on a fourth and one
situation made the difference in that drive. Rolling right Leach
chose to keep the ball instead of lateralling to Bell. Apparently
stopped behind the line he managed to struggle with a second
and third effort for the first down.
Michigan still has a lot of growing to do but by the standards
set against Missouri and Michigan State the team has already
come a long way.
