PORT NECHES-GROVES. OCTOBER 26. 1964
In a game which probably decided the District 11-AAAA championship,
the Port Arthur Yellow Jackets overpowered the PNG Indians in the first
half and then relied on a staunch defense to quell a second half "Injun"
uprising to prevail 21-8. Both teams were fired up to the hilt. and the game
turned into a ferocious hitting contest. Not only was this game a peak of
Jacket effort, but the TJ student body displayed a spirit that has had no
equal in the past seven years.
The Jacket scores, all in the first half, were quick and long. Walter Sorgee
reversed field for 37 yards: Dwayne Catalina zipped for 45 and 26 yard
scores. The Jacket line outcharged PNG time after time. The Jackets showed
an undeniable desire for victory. The defense. led by the front four of
Buddy Ball, Mike Trahan, Terry Rozzle. and Errol Guidry, played havoc
with the frustrated Indian backs.
WINGBACK RICHARD TAFT explodes like a stick of dynamite as he picks up valuable yard-
age against the Indians. Guard Steve Wells (66) offers his help on the play.
