"Don't tell me I'm going to have to write up another high scoring tie game. Irs impossible!" Of course, the worried scribe was referring to West Liberty's 54-54 scoring marathon two weeks ago with Tech. Both teams combined for 1.08~ yards from scrimmage. The score was the highest tie game in college football. Discussing it in print is, needless to say. somewhat of a challenge. And at the end of the first haLL with the score 17-17 as the result of a high-flying offensive show that delighted Pioneer fans, it appeared as ff game laurels would go to the team which could sustain the bombardment. The second half was all defense, however, and a long punt return by Hilltopper Vic Wood which led to the final score spelled the difference as West Liberty nipped Glenville in the f'mal three minutes of play, 24-17. The Hilltopers drew first blood in the opening minutes of play as Terry Edwards-one of the premier running backs in the WVIAC this season-led a 73-yard scoring drive, diving over from the four-yard line for the touchdown. The 5-10 senior from Wheeling displayed great agility and balance as he bounced and caroomed off Pioneer defenders as if they were made of rubber. Glenville raged back. however. and in 90 seconds tied it up. With third down and 17 yards to go from his own 28-yard line, GSC quarterback Chris Anderson lofted a short swing pass to slotback Don Chandler e,~d the little fireplug bulled tc Pioneer 47. Anderson passes another quickie to fullback Leandis Hedges and he roared to the 15. On the third play in the series, Anderson slammed a handoff to running back Don Brady and the speedy junior blasted through the center of the Hilltopper defenders for the tying score. Faced with a fourth down deep in their own territory due to two 15-yard penalties (illegal block, unsportsman- like conduct), the Hilltopper were forced to punt on their next series and Glenville, uncharacteristically, roared back for another quick score. First Anderson hit split end Bob Shaffer for a first down at the Hilltopper 38. Then he found the sure-fingered sophomore in the end zone with a perfectly-led scoring pass and Glenville led, 14-7. GSC defenders tightened up somewhat against the Hil]topper offensive machine, forcing them to kick a field goal. Dave Peluchatte punched 31-yarder at the beginning of the second period to make the !4.10. A clipptn8 plmalty against GSC on a .~ubsequent punt play appeared to inspire West Liberty. The Hilltopper's 6-4 quarterback Joe Pepe faked a handoff into the line and tossed a short swing pass to Edwards and the dangerour runner broke away until GSC's Jerome Fruit iolted him out of bounds on the Glanville 15. And on a fourth down desperation play, Pepe threw to a diving Edwards in the end zone-an indefensible play-and the talented scatback pulled it in to give his teammates a 17-14 lead with 5:02 left in the half. Sophomore linebacker Rick Reid] halped GSC even the score moments later, intercepting a Pepa pass at midfield with 42 seconds left. Anderson threw two successive strikes to Brady and Shaffer and. with only 6 seconds left More intermission, BOb Caste booted a 32-yard field goal, tying the score 17-17. Everybody expected the perilous fight to continue in the second half. GSC defenders were having a difficult time contahdng Edwards, who nan at both ends and inside on quick reverses with abandon. And H]lltopper defen- ders were helpless against the Pioneer air attack.
