October 21, 1976 Bluefield shocks GSC, 14.1 A blocked extra point attempt ruined Glanvflle State's homecoming last Saturday as Bluefield State dipped by with a 14-t3 win. Leandis Hedges had another superlative running game for the Pioneers as he rolled up 174 yards in 29 carriers. However, the Pioneers offensive attack was dulled by four interceptions. The running and passing of Big Blues quarterback Richard Kimberlin sparked their offense. The large homecoming crowd was thrilled by a 66-yard scoring scamper by Hedges with 6:42 to play in the first quarter. Interceptions by Ed Donatell and Dave Mossor and a fumble recovery by Bob Eaton in the early stages of the first half helped keep the Big Blues bottled up. Biuefield State scored their first touchdown after returning a short punt to tim GSC 36 yard line. Arthur ]ackson scored from three yards out. On the next series of plays Dave Litz intercepted a pass from GSC quarterback Tom Cowan at the 50 yard line and returned it to the Pioneer 38-yard line. On the first play following the interception Kimberlin hit Lawren- ce Hall over the middle for a touchdown. Donatell stopped another Blue- Fmld scoring threat with 28 seconds to play in the first half when he intercepted a pass on the five yard line. The Pioneers opened the second half with bursts of 11 and nine yards by Hedges, but Cowan was sacked for a K)-yard loss and GSC had to punt. The Pioneers mounted their final scoring drive in the fourth quarter after fielding a punt on their own 40 yard line. Cowan bat Mitch Guy on a 15 yard pass and a roughing the passer penalty moved the ball to the Big Blues' 13 yard line.

The Pioneers completed only one of six passes. [Democrat photo] Cowan hit Terry Harvey on a pass to the two yard line for the first down. Hedges scored from one yard out. But the Big Blues refused to yield for what is usually the routine extra point kick and Darrell Mung blocked Kirk Kresowaty's kick. Cowan injured his hand with about four minutes to play. He was replaced by Bob Diehl who threw an interception on his first pass attempt. Bluefield State ran out the clock. The Pioneers travel to West Liberty this Saturday. School and Office Supplies?
