gallant Tivy Antlers were startled
twice by one Michael Patrick Sween-

his stringbean form around the
kicking foot of Chambliss, Tivy back,
as the Kerrville youngster attempt-
ed to punt.
Once Sweeney picked up the ball
and trotted 5 yards to score the
first Sandy iouchdown. The next
time, Pat Toombs, Amarillo cen-

The fighting, gallant “ironmen”
from the South Texas hill country
outplayed the team that beat them
for the championship.
Kerrville marked up 1G first downs
to Amarillo’s seven, gained one yard
less than Amarillo's rushing total
of 159 yards and outclassed the
Sandies in the air, 121 to 23 yards.
Twice the Tivy Antlers were
within striking distance, the ball
going over to the Sandies on the
three-inch line and once on the
Blocked Kicks, The Difference
The two blocked kicks by Mike
Pat "Irish” Sweeney was the dif-
ference between victory and defeat
for the defending champions of
Coach Blair Cherry.

The Box Score
Financially, the 193G gridiron sea-
son at Newman High was the best
since 1932. official figures released
Saturday by Superintendent Ross
S. Covey reveal. At home and
abroad the Sweetwater Mustangs
played to 15,033. This total includes
many who were admitted on tick-
ets which were paid for out of the
athletic fund, such as visiting high
school and junior high school
teams, sports writers and others
during the season.

We can argue lor months per-
haps on why the season was the
test financially in four years and
perhaps never reach a conclusion.
But to those of us who yelled for
a lighted stadium, we just naturally
are going to claim that the lights
did the trick. Some will argue that
ttie Ponies had the best team since
1932 — but when you look at the re-
cord you find that only team they
defeated this year that they didn't
last was Roscoe.

And when you say dial if all the
games had been played in the af-
ternoon rather than at night that
attendance would have been just as
good — we who were for the lights
will point out that two afternoon
games in which the Ponies took
part failed to draw as many as did
one night game.
