Wesleyan. but then succumbed to a sparkling running attack, led by the Bobcats' Steve Vannoy, a 2aS-pound fireplug halfback who later scored two decisive touchdowns and finished with lO8 yards rushing. GSC led 15-8 with 5:12 left in the game when Wesleyan mounted a superb drive at their own 25 and, six plays later, scored when Vannoy broke over right tackle from the two-yard line to tie the game, 15-15. In the ensuing first overtime. GSC's Bobby Casto failed to connect on a 39-yard field goal, giving the ball up to the red-hot Bobcats. From a spread formation on a muddy battlefield, Wesleyan powered quickly to the Pioneer 3-yard line where quarterback . John Luchs, a fine outside runner, sprinted over for the game-winning score. 21-15 For GlenviUe. the upset loss left them 1-3-1. knocking them out of a tie for the lead in the WVIAC Southern Division. It was the young Bobcats' second straight win and gave them a 2-4 record. A cheery Homecoming crowd was given a pleasant surprise*when, five minutes into the contest. Pioneer quarterback Tom Cowan found end Bob Shaffer all alone in front of the Bobcat goal line with a 33-yard scoring strike. It was the initial first-hag score Straight Answers From Your Power Company QUESTION: Why do you charge a penalty when I pay my electric bill a few days late? ANSWER: It is unfortunate that some of our customers have this misunderstanding. We do not charge a penalty for late payment. We do offer a worthwhile discount for early payment of electric bills, The practice of allowing "prompt payment discounts" or "cash discounts" goes far back in the history of American business. It is a means of encouraging early settlement of all accounts--and early settlement of accounts saves a lot of expense which otherwise would have to be reflected in prices. A very large majority of Monongahela cus- tomers pay their electric bills in time to earn the prompt payment discount. This gives us the cash early enough that we can pay ouw bills in time to earnthe discounts offered by our suppfiers. And those discounts we earn by prompt payment of our bills represent thousands of dollars that would otherwise have to be added to electric rates. The cost of electricity is higher today and, if our costs continue to increase, the rates must increase accordingly. One way you can help hold increases to a minimum is by prompt payment of your electric bill. But we also ask your help in conserving energy in every way possible--to conserve the diminishing energy resources of the country and to save money for yourself.

Then the Bobcats-suffering a triple dose of misplays, penalties, and a p,~nishing GSC defensive rush-were Glenvilla opened the second half still in command, led by safety Jerome Fruit's diving deflection of a fourth down 1,uchs pass near the GSC goal Line. Both teams battled in the Rohrbough mud for the remainder of the third period, neither able to generate a scoring drive. But at the outset of the fourth period, Wesleyan caught fire. Beginning at the Glenville 42, Vannoy Powered on six consecutive downs, punishing Pioneer defenders with his helmet-cracking charges and scoring on his final burst over left guard. Luchs then hit Rich Thomaselli coming out of the backfield for a two-point conversion to tie the score, 8-8. Wesleyan threatened to score on GSC's next series, recovering a Rick Lemley fumble at the Pioneer 16-yard line. But the GSC defense, led as always by tackle Dan Clevenger and Fruit, stiffened to force Wesleyan to try a 19-yard field goal which failed. Taking possession on their own 20. Glenville blockers sprung running back Leandis Hedges on a 54-yard power sweep to the Wesleyan 23. Don Brady, Hedges and Lemlay took turns slashing closer to the goal line and, with first down and inches, Brady dove over his right tackle for what appeared to be the go-ahead~score, 15-8 with 5:12 left in the game. But, Luchs led the Bobcats on a shocking 75-yard scoring drive, covering nearly 50 yards himself on two short passes and a desperate rollout scamper, Then, from the GSC 28, Vannoy shot off right tackle and to humiliated moments later when Luchs was dumped successively by Art Ausberry and Randy Smith. the latter for a stunning safety. It appeared, on this sunny, balmy afternoon, that the Bobcats were in for a drubbing one week after Fairmont stung GSC with a lopsided 48-7 defeat. Instead. Glenville's game de- teriorated, resembling Wesleyan's first half struggle. The Pioneers suffered two turnovers, costly penal- ties, and the crunching power of Vannoy. the crowd's dismay, streaked along the sideline until he was cracked out of bounds at the one-yard line by Fruit. Vannoy came right back, how- ever, hitting again over right tackle two plays later for the tying score. Then, continuing their come-from- behind surge, the Bobcats struck again in overtime to win. Glenville rushed 49 times for an impressive 184 yards with Brady picking up 76 yards on 24 carries and Hedges rushing nine times for 66 yards. The Vannoy-led Bobcats rushed 45 times for 147 yards.
