4 The GlenvUle Democrat/Pathfinder September 15, 1977 Pioneers thumped in new sn ,dium by Gardner-Webb, 38-7 Senior fullback Johnny Walker ru,hed for 226 yards in 27 carries to s,,t a new school record in leading the G ,.dner-Webb Bulldogs to a smashing 38-7 victor over the Clenville Pioneers in the inaugural game at the new Pioneer Stadium on Mineral Road, Saturday night. September I0. Walker rushed for three touch- downs, including a 53-yard run with 8:31 retaining in the game that closed out the scoring. hmior kicker Mike Cox was impressive in booting five extra points without a miss and adding a 38-yard field goal. The kicker from Charlotte. North Carolina missed only twice-a 52-yard field goal try in the second quarter was short and a 31-yard attempt with 4:37 remaining in the gme was wide to the right. Before a large crowd on a suddenly chilly Saturday evening, the Pioneers were first on the board as Lee Hedges rammed into the end zone with 6:31 remaining in the first period. The extra point attempt by Benny Long was good and the G-Men were on top, 743. The GSC scoring drive was set up following a pass interception by Ed Donatell, a Junior defensive back from tow, Ohio. Donatell's interception gave the Pioneers the ball on the Gardner-Webb 43-yard-line with 8:25 remaining in the opening frame. It took the Pioneers five plays-and a pass interference, call against Chris Johnson on the Gardner-Webb three-to bring the ball into the end zone. The Bulldogs of Gardner-Webb were unable to move the ball on their next possession and it looked as though the Pioneers might be in for an easy evening. Such was not to be, however. After Gardner-Webb punted to Glenville, defensive back Bill Salyers intercepted a Terry Spongier pass with 4:09 showing on tile clock in the first period and carried the ball to the Glenville 47. Seven plays later, Walker burst up the middle and in for the score from the GSC 16-yard-line. Cox added the extra point and the score was knotted, 7-7, with 52 seconds remaining in the opening frame. Lee Hedges took the ensuing kickoff at the CSC goal line and GLENVILLE QUARTERBACK Terry Spangler warms up prior to the start of Saturday night's game with Gardner-Webb. [l)emocrat Photo] appeared to have a shot at returning the ball for a touchdown before being hauled down from behind by Bulldog defensive back Alvin Lee at the Gardner-Webb 23. Lee runs the hundred in 9.3 seconds, according to Bulldog Sports Information Director Larry Thomas. The Pioneers were penalized five yards for motion following hedges' run. Quarterback Spangler's passes intend- ed for Gene White were incomplete on the next three downs which brought up a fourth and 15 yards to go situation for the Pioneers. Benny Long's 45-yard field goal attempt fell far short as the quarter came to a close. The Pioneer offense, under both Spanglor and Senior quarterback Randy JeffrieS, was unable to generate any serius threats throughout the remainder of the game. In the meantime, Gardner-Webb began to unleash a relentless offensive attack that the Pioneers were unable to subdue. Walker took a pitch to the left and rambled in from ,11 yards out for the Bulldog's second"score with 5:17 to go in the half. Gardner-Webb was cited for a personal foul on the extra point try and was penalized five yards. However, the sure-footed Cox pounded the ball through the uprights from 25 yards out to move the Bulldogs ahead. 14-7. Gardner-Webb quarterback Dennis Stilley carried the ball into the end zone with 33 seconds remaining in the half to move the Bulldogs on top. 20-7. Cox converted on the extra point kick to make the halftime score read: Gardner-Webb 21. Glenville 7. In the third period, Cox hit on his 38-yard field goal to put the Bulldogs ahead 24-7 with 9:41 remaining in the Quarter. Obbie Todd added to the Gardner-Webb scoring with 7:28 remaining in the third period and Cox's extra point made it Gardner-Webb 31, Glenville 7. Walker added his 53-yard TD run to round out the scoring in the game as the Bulldogs romped, 38-7. Besides disappointment with the loss, Pioneer fans were stunned by the ability of Gardner-Webb, whose home campus is in Boiling Spring, North Carolina, to contain Hedges. The second-team NAIA All- American in 1976 gained only 40 yards in 18 carries. However, the entire Pioneer squad was able to muster only 47 yards on 32 carries. Gardner-Webb, on the other hand, gained 354 yards in 65 carries. Quarterback Stilley was seven for 18 in passing for 85 yards. Sophomore quarterback Matt Ballard was zero for one in the air and Walker attempted a pass, which was incomplete, to make Gardner-Webb's aerial attack seven for 20 with 85 yards gained. Total offense was 439 yards for the Bulldogs, with 25 first downs. In additio to the 47 yards gained on the ground, the Pioneers added 34 in the air. Spangler was three for 13 in passing for 30 yards. Jeffries hit on one of four pass attempts for a four-yard gain. Total Glenville offense was 81 yards. The Pioneers managed only four first downs in the game. Oval Jaynes, Gardner-Webb Coach. commented after the game that "Hodges is a good football player. We knew we had to stop him to contain Glenville." PIONEER TOUTIDOWN-PIoneer BOb Eaton [17] raises his arras k as Glenvflle scores to go In front of Gardoer-Webb, 6-0, Saturday night.

"We've got a better ball club than what we showed tonight," concluded Coach Adolfson. "We "lost our poise after Hedges was stopped on the kick-off return and didn't play football after that."
