Iknt Hem CommanOt l.d Sept 27th - 5:30 '1.00 l)bmen '2.50 M-ePhersen picks up four yards for Titans in second quarter. Center of field became muddy morass after one period of play. The Gilmer County Titans battled the Walton Tigers to a standoff on the ground in the opening minutes of their contest last Friday during a relentless drizzle, but the Tigers opened up a devastating aerial game and crushed the locals, 22-0. in a Little ganawha Conference game. Gffmer could manged only 76 yards total offense compared to Waltons' 241 yard passing and rushing. Tiger quarterback Mark Swiger threw-only five times but completed four for an amazing 110 yards. His major target was sophomore left McCroskey. who nabbed two for 91 yards. The Tigers. who suffered to straight setbacks this season, snapped a nine-game losing streak dating back to last year. Their lone victory came at the hands of Gilmer last year. Gffmer is now 1-2 and entertains a strong Doddridge team Friday at 1;15 p.m. After both squads trampled the soggy turf to death in the first period without threatening, the Tigers scored mid-way through the second quarter on a 16-yard pass from Swiger to tight end Tim Nida. Shortly afterwards. Gilmer quart- erback John Fox left the game with an injured arm. The Titans initiated a drive in the third period from their own 35 to Walton's 35 where they failed to pick up a crucial first down. Walton moved against the Titans / once again as Swiger hit McCroskey afor a long gainer to the Gilmer 30 and. with 10 minutes left in the game, scored on a short dive. Walton's final tally was set up when Gilmer coughed up its fifth fumble of the game. With the ball resting on the Tiger 31, Swiger went to the air and found McCroskey open over the middle. The sophomore speedster rambled 65 yards before being caught from behind at the Titan 5. Four plays later. McCroskey bulled over from the two for the touchdown. Walton added two conversion points on a Swiger pass for the final score. With reserve quarterback Keith Morrow at the helm the Titans put together one final drive, aided by several penalties against the Tigers, who managed to lose 140 total yards due to miscues. But Tiger defenders held the Titans at their own 33 and then broke through to sack Morrow twice before the final gun sounded. "We just didn't play good football." Gilmer coach Clyde Stepp said after the loss. "Walton inst put it to us. They played a fine game." Walton coach Ed McCall, thrilled with the victory, praised his under manned squad. "'lust call us the Dirty Dozen plus three," he remarked. "I only have 15 boys left now. but they're all Approximately 300 persons turned out forthe second horse show sponsored by the Gilmer Couny Trailriders at Roberts Riding Stables on Sunday.
