It looked like Gilmer was headed for their first score of the night early in the second quarter, but the Gators stopped the Titans on their own 20 yard line. But on the ensueing series Gilmer linebacker Randy Miller intercepted a pass at the 22 yard line and ran it in for the touchdown. He also ran for the extra points from his fullback spot. On the first play after the kick-off Titan Eric Williams recovered a Gator fumble on the Harrisville 40 yard line. The Titans penetrated to the 20 yard line before falling short on downs. But the Titan defense provided the offense with another scoring oppor- tunity when Pat Minney intercepted a pass on the Harrisville 30 yard line and returned it to the nine yard line with 2:31 to go in the first half. But the offense was unable to gain more than two yards and Hardsville took over on the seven yard line. Jerry McPherson intercepted a pass on the Gilmer 16 yard line to end a dangerous last second drive by Harrisville in the first half. Pat Minney recovered another Harrisville fumble early in the third quarter, but the Titans had to punt after failing to move the ball.

TOUCHDOWN ! ..Somewhere beneath that pile of bodies lies Glimer quarterback Jerry McPherson, He had Just burrowed his way for the winning touchdown against Harrisvtlle last Friday night, quarterback Jerry McPherson on a one-yard plunge for the winning touchdown. The try for a two-point conversion was no good. Thr fourth quarter turned into a kicking duel as neither offensive squad could mount a drive, until after recovering a Titan fumble the Caters penetrated to the Gilmer 35 yard line. But defensive halfback Don Wilson intercepted a pass on the 23 yard line to end that threat. After quarterback Jerry McPher- son picked up a crucial first down on the 33 yard Line with two minutes to play, the Titans ran out the clock. Gilmer now 3-5 travels to Pennsboro this Friday night.

Hill, the Game Biologist in Parkersburg. The release is part of a continuing trap-and-transplmzt program to re- establish the wild turkey in the western and southern West Virginia counties were suitable habitat occurs. The turkeys released in Ritchie County were live-trapped on Watoga State Park in southern Pochontas County by Adie White and Ralph Sharp, DNR wildlife managers. The wildlife managers record the age and sex of each bird, mark it with both a led band and a wing tag, and transport the birds to the release area. After the birds are released in a suitable area. it becomes important to protect the turkeys from illegal hunting. Poaching can be a major problem preventing the establishment of transplanted turkeys. Public cooperation with county conservation officers is absolutely necessary if the turkeys are to survive. Hunters ore reminded that there" is no fall turkey season in our western counties. Turkey numbers are not yet high enough in the transplanted areas to allow hunting of hens. Hunting of gobblers, however, is allowed during the spring turkey season. The trap-and-transplant program has been successful in many West Virginia counties where turkeys were once found. As second growth tim bar matures, and human activity declines. areas aain become suitable for wild turkeys. The Wildlife Division is making every effort to re-establish this magnificent game in all such areas of West Virginia. SHOE 7 So. Lewis St. Gleaville Free Parking Open Friday evenings Got a Question?
