McPherson snuck over on his second carry and the extra point attempt failed, giving Gilmer a 6-0 lead with 4:28 left in the first period. Gilmer began what appeared to be a second scoring drive from their own 34, again with Randy Miller leading the way. The Titans fumbled, however, at the Pennsboro 26 and the Cardinals surged downfield, helped by a long pass from Hayhurst to reserve flanker Steve Hilkey. Titan defenders arose to the occassion, holding the Cardinals on downs from inside the two-yard line. A fourth down pass from Hayhurst was broken up by McPherson. Fox and Wilson. Gilmer punted and Pennsboro roared right back. Hayhurst's pass to flanker Mark Robinson might have meant a score but for Robinson catching the ball one short step out of the end zone.

Trr whips 6ruins, 37-0 to clinch championship The Troy Trojans combined an awesome ground attack with a crisp passing game last Thursday. clob- bering Burnsville, 37-0 and clinching their second consecutive W. Va. Central Jr. H.S. Conference champion- ship. Running back Mike King led Trojan scoring with three touchdowns and a kicked extra point. His running mate, Buddy Peggs. scored twice on power sweeps, and sure-handed Scott Carney contributed to the scoring column when he hauled in a 30-yard touchdown pass from King. The Bill Jones-coached Trojans clearly outclassed their Braxton County rivals. In the first half, the Bruins could manage only two first downs. Tray's defense simply swarmed all over the Burnsville offense, completely smothering their ground game. Tray's rush against the pass was also effective. Peggs returned the opening kickoff to near midfield and on an ensuing run from scrimmage, exploded through the Bruins to the lO-yard line. On the next play. quarterback Ricky Moore handed off to King for no gain. With the Brnins keying on King. Moore faked to his big groundgainer on the next play and With just 53 seconds left in a frantic second quarter, Cardinal defenders poured into the Titan backfield and scored a safety, making the score, 6-2. The Titans and Cardinals ex- changed punts at the beginning of the second period, neither side able to generate a drive. But on their second possession, Brian Hayhurst took the snap from center on his own 44-yard line and raced 56 yards untouched for a score. Brother Mark took a pitchout from Brian and ran for two extra points, making it 1045 at 5:13 in the third quarter. It was at this point that the Titans collapsed. They were forced to punt with fourth and 19 and the Cardinals scored again. Eating up the clock with hard running from their own 43-yard line, the Cardinals battered through Gilmer defenders at will. with quarterback Hayhurst scoring on a one-yard sneak over center at 11:07 in the fourth quarter, to make it 16-6. And misfortune struck again. Gilmer fumbled on the first play in their next series and Pennsboro recovered at the Titan 35. Again the Cardinals drove on ground to the five-yard line where, on third down. Hayhurst passed to Robertson for a touchdown. The extra point failed and the score stood 22-6 with 7:03 remaining to pla~'. A spark of life returned to the Titans on the ensuing offensive series when. from his own 44-yard line, McPherson faked a fourth down punt and tossed to flanker Mike Minney, who gathered it in at the Pennsboro 40 and carried down to the 26-yard line. McPherson came right back, rifling a long. lofting pass to fleet Don Wilson. who made a stretching over-the-shoulder grab deep in the end zone. That made the score 22-12 with 5:08 remaining. Gilmer tried, unsuccessfully, an onsides kick. and, moments later, the Cardinals burned Gilmer with their own play. With a fourth down from the Titan 37, Brian Hayhurst faked a punt and scooted for a first down to the 20-yard line. On a subsequent fourth down from the 19, Hayhurst found Robertson alone near the end zone and the flanker easily scored with 1:16 left in the game.
