By DEAN SINGLETON You might say the Clarendon Bronchos did their "patriotic" duty in keeping the score down Friday night in their game against the Valley High Patriots. That's probably the best way to describe the game, in which the Broncs used every man on the roster and kept the first string out of the game most of the time to beat the Patriots, 33-7. As the game drew to a close, the announcer in the Turkey stadium said very graciously, "We certainly appreciate the sportsmanship displayed by the Clarendon coach in keeping the core low and making the game interesting to us Valley High fans." And interesting it may have been to the Patriot fans, who have yet to see their kids win a football game since the school was formed two years ago. They saw their kids play ball and even make a touchdown there at the end. "We know we can't beat anybody," said one Valley High parent, leaving the stadium after the game. "But we sure are happy to see a coach and team like Clarendon that tries not to embarrass us in front of our own people." And that's the way it was. Clarendon Coach Clyde Noonkester shifted his first stringers back and forth, put in his younger players, and shifted his team around to avoid a big rout of the hapless Patriots, who will go back to Class B next year. The most exciting part of the game was a fuss between the football game announcer and a disc jockey sportscaster from Memphis' KBGH Radio. From the start, the KBGH man raised his voice to high levels with degrading remarks about the Patriots. The remarks, made for a re-broadcast of the game, were so loud that they carried over the PA system, and Valley High fans got quite irritated. Before the feud calmed, the KBGH man had shouted a shady word, several Valley High fans were at his throat threatening to take him out back, and school authorities were called to calm the situation. Having been asked to leave, the broadcaster finally agreed to quit rubbing it in on the Patriot fans, and the broadcast continued. Anywa.v, lmck to the ballgame. The Bronchos didn't score on their first possession, failing to ggt a first down. /But on the first play from scrimmage on the second /possession, Kenneth King broke loose with a 52-yard scamper to [put the Bronchos on the board. The kick made it 7-0 with 5:20 ,owing in the first period. The Patriots couldn't move on the next possesion, and were forced to punt. The punt sailed right into the stands, but gained only 10 yards. Seven plays later, the Bronchos climaxed their drive when Kenneth Reese ran 9 yards for a touchdown. The kick was good, and it was 14-0 as the first quarter ended. The Clarendon bunch took over on their own 47 after Valley High couldn't move the ball. Gary Shields ran for 7, then scampered 10 yards down to the 36. Randy Croslin ran for 10, then gained 13 on a personal foul penalty. Jerry Holland ran 10 yards, and Shields went in for the touchdown from 3 yards out. There was a bad snap on the point after try, and the score was 20-0 with 8:51 showing in the first half. The Broncho defense held the Patriots to little yardage on the next series, and another one of those grand stand punts gave Clarendon the ball on the Broncho 45. Johnny Gerner ran for 13 yards, Shields for 9, then Shields ran again for 13 yards. Holland hit for 5, quarterback Kenneth Reese kept the ball for 4, and Gerner went in for the touchdown from the 11. The kick was no good, and it was 26-0 with the half nearly over. Valley High got on the scoreboard early in the second half after Clarendon fumbled on the 9. On fourth down, Patriot Brian Wheeler went over for the score. Steve Eudy's kick was good, and it was 26-7. Reese took the kickoff and ran it to the 50. From there, Croslin ran for 5 yards, Shields 4, and Croslin again for 4. A screen pass to Reese gained 36 yards and a touchdown, and it was 33-7 after Lynn Floyd's kck. It won't be fun and games next week, as the Bronchos take on the Memphis Cyclones in the game that will probably decide the district championship. But, the Broncho starting lineup should be rested for that game, anyway. THESE CANDIDATES for Hedley Cotton Festival Queen stand by the bale of cotton that was given away Saturday.
