Pioneers unleash Hodges on hapless Bears Hodges gained 122 yards on 13 carries in the first half. Henderson recovered a Tech fumble on the first play of the second half. Hodges carried the ball four out of the next five plays, including a three yard touchdown run. Midway through the third quarter Cowan hit halfback Tom Harvey on a 30 yard pass play, but Harvey fumbled the ball when he tried to run and Tech recovered. Two plays later Dave Harsh intercepted at Glen- ville's 45 yard line and returned it to Tech's 43 yard line. The Pioneers drove to the six yard line and on fourth down Harvey redeemed himself when he caught a play ac- tion pass from Cowan for the Pioneers' last touchdown. Early into the fourth quarter Kresowaty kicked a 22 yard field goal to cap GSC's scoring. After the field goal Tech's Jones came out and hit wide receiver Sam Monroe on passes of 40 and 38 yards and the Golden Bears had their only touchdown of the day. A completed pass gave them a two point con- version. An interception by Ed Donatell and two more by Henderson helped keep the Golden Bears off the score board for the rest of the day. The Pioneers travel to Salem this Saturday for a game at 7:30 p.m. GANG TACKLING-It took a gang of Golden Bears to bring GSC's Leandis Hodges (44) down Saturday. The Virginia Beach, Vs.

The road-weary Pioneers suffered dismal defeats in both outings. But after a simple jaunt down the hill to Rohrbough Field the once-prouds GSC defense came to life and Coach Whitey Adoifson unveiled an offense called Leandis Hodges. The combination of the two was enough to insure a 23-8 victory over West Virginia Tech. Hodges, a 5'9" 192 lb. junior fullback from Virginia Beach, Va., gained 260 yards on 34 carries to break the GSC single game rushing record. He scored touchdowns on runs of 70 and three yards and kept numerous drives alive by picking up clutch first downs. The defense held Tech for 57 yards rushing, intercepted seven passes. and recovered three fumbles. Tech recovered five of six Pioneer fumbles but were unable to turn any of them into scores against the stingy Pioneer defense. Jim Henderson, a transfer from Potomac State, led the defense with three interceptions and one fumble recovery. Glenville's defense began forcing Tech mistakes late in the first quarter when defensive end Steve Brown recovered a Golden Bear fumble on GSC's 37 yard line. The offense had to punt after that possession, but Joe Crump, senior co-captain from White Sulphur Springs, alertly pounced on a bob- bled option pitch on Tech's first play to give the Pioneers the ball on Tech's 40 yard line. GSC's next of- fensive thrust was stopped when Golden Bear Tom Klncaid in- tercepted quarterback Dave Cowan's pass and returned it to the Tech 49 yard line. The first quarter ended 0-0. The Golden Bears moved in as close as the GSC five yard line before a personal foul penalty put them back on the Pioneer 20 yard line. Tech quarterback Dewayne Jones tried to throw into the end zone on a third down play, but was pressured by Steve Brown and threw instead into the arms of Pioneer defensive back Dave Mosser. After picking up 12 yards on a vital third and nine play, Leandis Hodges came back on the next play and brought the crowd to its feet as he flashed downfield for a 70 yard touchdown. A powerful block by guard Pat Joyce took out three men to open the hole for Hodges. Kirk Kresowaty's kick was wide. It was a freshman's turn to play thief on the next series of plays as linebacker Mike Kibbee of Parkersburg intercepted a Tech pass on Tech's 47 yard line. After exchanging punts, Tech recovered a fumble by Hodges and again began to mount a drive. Henderson thwarted this one as he grabbed his first interception of the game on GlenviUe's 30 yard line and returned it to Tech's 47 yard line. The first half ended 6-0.
