PERFECT FOR CHRISTMAS GIVING The Glenville State College Pioneers revealed a strong defense in their opening game with Madison College of Virginia last Saturday at Rohrbou~h Field. but failed to capitalize on a first and goal situation late in the game, winding up the afternoon in a frustrating 0-0 deadlock. With 4:47 left in the contest and possession on the Madison 40, third-string quarterback Rusty Smith hit slotback Steve Chandler and the rugged sophomore battled to the Madison 21 yardline. A holding penalty against the Dukes on Pioneer receiver Bob Shaffer moved the ball to the 14. A quick burst up the middle by Don Brady brought the Pioneers to the 8 with 1:15 left to play. On a play called from the bench. Smith uncorked an aerial to Shaffer directly over center but the slender receiver was covered like a blanket and Madison intercepted to kill the drive. Safety Jerome Fruit, an AII- WVIAC selection last year, nabbed his first interception of the young season moments later to squash a desperate Madison aerial attack. He lept high in the air at the GSC 23 to snare for a long pass from Dukes quarterback Los Branich meant for tall tight end Ron Borders, and the game ended. The Pioneers began with a strong passing attack early in the game with former AII-WVIAC quarterback Chris Anderson consistently hitting on third down situations with passes to Chandler and Shaffer. The Pioneers ground game was stymied by the Dukes. who defensive secondary stopped GSC on this drive at the Madison 34. The Pioneer defense, led by rugged tackle Dan Clevenger. also on All WVIAC selection a year ago. completely shackled the vaunted Dukes offense which averaged 354.8 yards a year ago. Dukes tailback Bernie Slayton. a College Division All-American last season with 883 yards rushing was also held in check. Overall, the Dukes just managed 147 total yards. Branich. who picked up 1.133 yards through the air last year, was limited to only 7 of 15 completions for 88 yards. Glenville came beck in the second period after their defense smothered a Madison aerial attack, with good rollout running by reserve quarter- back Tom Cowan and a 16-yard toss from Anderson to Red Watson. Three successive running plays from the Madison 32 were smothered' and Bobby Casto's field goal attempt from the 38 failed. The half ended after GSC linebacker Dave Harsh and defensive end Willie Marshall sacked Branich deep in the Dukes territory. The Pioneers fumbled early in the third period, giving the Dukes possession on their own 36, but GSC's Art Ausbury came right back with a fumble recovery of his own and Anderson followed with a pass to Chandler at miclrmld. Anderson hit Shaffer moments later at the Madison 30 and found Chandler on a slant-in at the 22 but the slotback was hit just as he reached for the ball and officials ruled that he fumbled, spoiling another GSC drive. On an ensuing fourth down punt from the Madison 38, a fight broke out in front of the GSC bench after a Madison defender scored a late hit out of bounds. Players from both sides quickly emptied the benches but coaches and officials broke up the melee. Madison drove to their deepest penetration of the day early in the fourth period but the Pioneer defenders stiffened at their own 20, forcing a field goal attempt which failed. Defense prevailed during the remainder of the game except for Glenville's late scoring opportunity which was nullified by an interception. Anderson enjoyed a good passing day, hiring on 9 of 13 attempts for 128 yards and one interception. Don Brady led Pioner running backs with 56 yards on 20 carries. GSC picked up 102 yards rushing and 193 passing. Smith completed two of four passes in his f'mst game for the GSC varsity for 57 yards. Cowan connected on one of two aerials for seven yards but picked up 35 yards on only three carries, each rush for a first down. Bob Shaffer snared five receptions for 73 yards and Chandler netted 59 yards on four receptions. Bobby Cuto'e five punts fell well short of his 40-yard average last year, p~marlly because most of his kicks were strategically attempted from near midfield deep into Madison territory. GSC coach Earl "Whitey" Adolfson in his debut as Pioneer head mentor, praised his club. "The players are young this year but we will improve as the season progresses," he noted. "If injuries do'nt catch up with us, we'll develop into a real good club." Glonvme will travel to Mont- gomery Saturday night to tangle with West Virginia Tech in a WV[~C southern division contest. Last Saturday's game was not extended into overtime because Madison is a non-confederence opponent, it was learned. o/oct offkors The Gilmer County Coonhunters Association met last Sept.
