4 The (;lenville Democrat/Pathfinder Cnntnrd wins. 24.14 I November 13. 1975 e Glenville State battled defending WVIAC Southern Division champion Concord to ta 14-14 standoff during the first half last week at Rohrbough Field, primarily on Tom Cowan's passing and a sky-high defense which limited the Mountain Lions to less than 100 total yards. But Concord capitalized on a blocked punt and a fumble recovery to score 10 points in the second half to defeat the Pioneers and capture their second consecutive title, 24-14. Actually, the Pioneers handed the game to Concord as the Mountain Lions scored all of their points on GSC miscues, Concord scored immediately after recovering three Pioneer fumbles and once again on a blocked Bobby Casto punt. One highlight for the Pioneers was flanker Bob Shaffer's record-shatter- ing performance. His six receptions for 125 vards gave him a season total of 34 for 587 ',.ird~. better,ng the single season record jointly held by Gary Blake and Steve Buffington {each with 31 catches). Glenville's offensive unit failed to capitalize on a turnover deep in Concord territory in the opening minutes of the game. On the very first series, linebacker Donnie Stout raced in to block a fourth down Concord punt and Ed Donatell recovered the ball at the Mountain Lion 15-yard line. But on an ensuing running play, fullback Leandis Hodges fumbled and Concord recovered. That offensive error was a harbinger of things to come. The first Pioneer score occurred with only 1:24 left in the first quarter as quarterback Tom Cowan, from his own 43-yard line, tossed a short sideline pass to slotback Don Chandler, who spun off several tackles, cut back across the field and raced into the end zone unscathed, and Glenville led 7-0.

IM~ Me~ The division battlers traded fumbles early in the second period, but Concord turned theirs into a score to tie the Pioneers. The Mountain Lion's 6-5 defensive end Garret; Flakes batted away a Cowan pitchout to running back Don Brady at the GSC 44.yard line seconds after Glenville gained possession on a Concord turnover. On the first play from scrimmage. Concord qb Jeff Boyles hit wide receiver David Cameron twice in succession to move the ball to the GSC 3-yard line. Boyles scored seconds later on a keeper up the middle. Concord turned another Pioneer fumble into a touchdown as defensive back Barry Rhea scooped up a Don Brady bobble at the Glenville 40-yard line and sprinted for the go-ahead points at 9:44 in the second period to make it 14-7. Tom Cowan sparked the Pioneers 77-yard return scoring drive im- mediately following the kickoff, however. The sophomore field general lofted a long strike to Shaffer along the right sideline from deep in his own territory and Shaffer raced to the Concord 5-yard line where he was caught from behind. Cowan then scored on a keeper over the middle and Casto converted a second time to knot the score at 14.14. GSC's defense, rugged all season, was especially effective at throttling Concord's running game during the first half and Jo Jo Crump and Jerome Fruit broke up two key passes which might have resulted in Mountain Lion scores. Cowan, who completed 7 of 12 first half passes for 174 yards {Shaffer snared four for 100 years, Chandler three for 74 yards) sat out the third period and was replaced by freshman Rusty Smith. "We simply wanted to see what Rusty could do." said GSC coach Whitey Adolfson. "We wanted to see if Rusty could get some momentum going." But on a fourth down from the Pioneer 22-yard line, Concord's Mike Bradley crashed through and blocked Bobby Casto's punt and the Mountain Lions settled for a 27-yard field goal. The three-pointer put Concord back on top. 17-14. Pioneer defenders were especially effective in forcing the field goal on this series. A late hit on a signaled fair catch put Concord in good field position at midfleld but the rugged Pioneers allowed only a single yard in three rushes. GSC defenders also displayed a fierce rush moments later as Tim McCotrtney, Dave Harsh and Art Ausberry teamed to batter Concord running backs four plays in a row within 10 yards of the end zone.

Smith was decked by hard charging Mountain Lion Defen- ders and he lost the ball at the GSC lO-yard line. Concord's John Allen sco~'ed on a six-yard sweep seconds later, one of the few times the Mountain Lions tested Glenville's flanks all afternoon, for the Final touchdown of the game. Cowan returned to the contest with 7:41 left and completed two more passes to Shaffer. but the Mountain Lions held on to preserve their victory. In the fined analysis, Glenville's four lost fumbles out of six miscues spelled the difference. In all, Glenville passed for 199 yards. Neither team moved the ball consistently on the ground, similar to past contests. The game ended Glenville's season at 2-6-1. Both of their wins came in Southern Division contests, nipping Tech 3-0 and Bluefield, 17-7. Concord won the division with a 4-0 record; they are 6-4 overall and face undefeated Salem in Parkersburg this weekend for the WVIAC champion- ship.
