Hedges passed the 1,0O0 yard season rushing mark in last Saturday's dismal loss to W.Va State. In doing so he set a school record for most yards gained in a season. [Democrat photo] West Virginia State had a field day against a listless Glenville State Saturday, as they cruised past the Pioneers 53-8. Almost scoring at will. State piled up 307 yards rushing and 73 yards passing. The only bright spot for GSC was the running of tailback Leandis Hedges who broke the 1,000 yard season rushing barrier and set a new school record for yards gained in one season. State got their first score on a 12-yard field goal with 10 minutes to play in the first quarter. On the next series the Pioneers gained 20 yards on a fumble when Hedges fumbled and Gene White recovered after a scramble for the ball. But the Pioneer drive stalled on State's 48 yard line. The Yellowjackets set the tone for the rest of the afternoon on their next possession. On third down and 12 at the GSC 28 yard line State caught the Pioneers on their heels as Brett Madden scored on a draw play. It was 10-0 with 6:14 to play in the first quarter. Hedges fumbled on the first play after the kickoff and State recovered however Pioneer Don Stout recovered a fumble three plays later, 30-30 cartridges being recalled Federal Cartridge is recalling certain 30-30 rifle cartridges and empty unprimed 30-30 cartridge cases which have a structural weakness making them potentially dangerous to shoot. The recall is for 30-30 ammunition or empty 30-30 cases with lot codes ending in -5280 through -8285. Lot codes are stamped on the back of each box. Boxes may have the brand names of Federal, Revelation, Wards, or Hiawatha. Shooters who have this ammuni. tion should call 800-328-7525 or write Customer Service, Federal Cartridge, Anoka. Minnesota 55303 for proper disposition and refund info'm- arian. The case heads of a small number of these cartridges may separate on firing, resulting in a jammed rifle and possible injury from escaping gas.. Although no serious injury has been reported, they should not be used. Only a fraction of one per cent of the several million cartridges and unprimed cases produced are suspect. Pe.nnsboro uses M.,racle to defeat Gtlmer 36-12 postponing the onslaught. The Pioneers penetrated to the 20 yard line with the aid of 15 and 49 yard runs by Hedges, but the drive stalled after Rocky Graves missed a field goal attempt from the 30 yard line. Early in the second quarter Pioneer quarterback Terry Diehl dropped back to pass from his own 22 yard line. he was hit and fumbled and State's Ralph Marshall recovered in the end zone. The official ruled that Diehl's arm was not in motion when he was hit. The Yellowjackets drove 47 yards on their next possession to score on a line plunge by Greg Monroe. GSC was forced to punt on their next possession, but the snap from center bounced in front of punter Bob Finnerty and he was unable to get the kick away and State took over on the GSC 17 yard line., On the next play Eddie Cameron hit pro prospect Warren Anderson in the end zone for the score. Dennis Strubel topped off State's first half scoring by kicking the longest field goal in the school's Mstory-a 49 yarder. They took a 33-0 lead to the dressing room. Hedges gained 117 yards in the first half and Madden picked up 124 for State. Pennsboro came up with a miracle last Friday night against Gilmer County. Cardinal halfback Mark Miracle ran roughshod over the Titans, gaining 121 yards and scoring three times, as Gilmer lost 36-12. Miracle scored his first touch- down in the first quarter on a 37-yard pass from quarterback Dave Hayhurst. The Titans came back to tie the score on lerry McPherson's one yard scoring plunge. Quarterback Hayhurst ran 21 yards for Pennsboro's next score. Miracle scored again in the second quarter on a two-yard run. He scored his last touchdown on a 20-yard pass reception in the third quarter. Mark Hayhurst added a final touchdown for the Cardinals on a four-yard run.

Traction satisfaction or 3,o:,r money back The Titans wrap up their season this Friday night at Lumberport at 7:30. GSC came out with a little renewed spirit for the second half. A 26 yard run by Hodges and a 24 yard pass completion from Diehl to Terry Harvey were the big plays in GSC's only scoring drive of the day. Hodges scored from three yards out and Diehl hit Harvey for the two-point conversion with five minutes to play in the third quarter. A disputed pass interference call on Pioneer Ed Donatell gave the Yellowjackets possession on the GSC five yard line. Madden scored two plays later and State moved to a 39-8 edge. Ralph Marshall scored another State touchdown early in the fourth quarter when he intercepted a screen pass attempt on the GSC seven yard line atd ran in for the score.
