Krehbiel, Grist
Lead Parade
Playing in championship form again Friday
night, the Canadian Wildcats smashed to a 27-8
victory over the McLean Tigers in a District 2-A
conference game at VJTildcat Stadium • . . their
last home appearance of the season.
Dell Krehbiel and Johnny
Grist led the scoring parade,
Krehbiel racking up two
touchdowns and Grist going
lor thaee as the Wildcats scor-
ed" in the first, second and
fourth quarters and led the
Tigers all the way.
Recovering quickly from a
successful on-side kick-off by
the Tigers at the opening
whistle which put the McLean
gridders in possession on the
50-yard line, the Wildcats
forced a Tiger fumble on the
second play of the game and
John Wheeler recovered on the
Tiger 44 yard line to touch off
a scoring drive.
With Grist and Krehbiel
carrying the mail* the Wild-
cats lolled quickly downfield
in twelve plays . . . including
a 15-yard penalty sot-back
midway in their drive, and
Krehbiel took a hand-eft from
quarterback Kenny Abraham
to smash through the middle
for the final yard and the TD.
Dennis Hill sliced through the
left side for the extra point
and the Wildcats were out in
front 7 to 0.
Quarterback Kenny Abra-
ham intercepted a McLean
pass on the Canadian 33 yard
line midway in the period and
ran it back to the McLean 46
to halt the Tigers' first big
drive and set the stage for
the second Wildcat touch-
down.
Johnny Grist picked up 6
yards over left tackle, then
Dell Krehbiel broke through
the same gaping hole and
raced 40 yards for the touch-
down. The extra-point try
failed, and the Wildcats led
13-0 at the end of the first
quarter.
A blocked punt midway in
the second ppriod gave the
Tigers 2 points on a safety.
Set back by penalties to their
own 18 after halting a Tiger
drive at the 33 yard line, the
Wildcats attempted to kick
and Johnny Grist's boot was
cleanly blocked, bounding
•back into the end zone where
Grist made the recovery him-
self to give the Tigers a 2-
pointer.

the Wildcat kick-off from the
20 on the Canadian 40-yard
line, Tiger Quarterback
Charles Crockett got off a
booming punt which rolled
dead on the 10 yard line, and
the Wildcats launched a 90-
yard drive which added an-
other touchdown shortly be-
fore the half ended.
The drive, set back again
by a 15-yard penalty, required
just ten plays . . . with Grist
and Krehbiel contributing
most of the yardage . . . and
it was Johnny Grist, crashing
through the middle on a fast-
breaking play who raced the
final 40 yards for the touch-
down. Hill again ran the ex-
tra point, and the Wildcats
led 20 to 2 at the half.
The third quarter was score-
less as the two teams battled
on even terms, but Johnny
Grist broke the ballgame wide
open on the second play of
the final period when he re-
peated his 40-yard touchdown
dash . . . going through the
middle on a fast hand-off
from Kenny Abraham to out-
run the entire Tiger secon-
dary. Garner Schoenhals add-
ed the extra point to put the
Wildcats out in front 27 to 2..
The Tigers took the next
kick-off on the 15 yard line
and launched their only scor-
ing drive of the evening, with
Freddie Smith, Paul Garvin
and Charles Crockett handling
the ball-carrying chores on
the 85-yard march.
They were aided materially
by a 15-yard penalty which
gave the Tigers a first down
on the Wildcat 1-yard line,
and Freddie Smith sliced over

A district championship will
be on the line Friday night
at Stinnett when the Panhan-
dle Panthers and the Stinnett
Rattlers tangle in the final
game of the season.
Both teams are undefeated
in conference play, and the
Rattlers have rolled through
a perfect ^season so far, while
the Panthers have lost only
one game, the season's opener
to Class AA Wellington.
The Rattlers, runners-up for
the state championship last
year, will be favored to repeat
as District 1-A champions, but
a rugged ball game is in pros-
pect.
In District 2-A, with the
conference championship al-
ready wrapped up by the Clar-
endon Broncos, only second
place will be at stake Friday
night when the Canadian
Wildcats and the Memphis
Cyclones meet at Memphis.
The two teams have been de-
feated in conference play only
