Sunday afternoon. , Bucs Win-Lose In Two Tilts Scoring early in the first quarter was not enough to dis- courage the Albey Cubs but the Bucs ,put up a game fight against terrific weight advan- tage held by the Cu,bs. The: Bucs started 'the scoring on a pass from Gary Thompson to Bob Dokken for a 60 yard run l and .then failed on the extra point when the Bucs line was off-side. The Cubs then hell the Bucs scoreless during the remainder i of the game and went on to score again with on'iy ten sec- onds remaining of the first half. The last ,score of the gam came in the third quarter, when bbey pushed their final touhdovn across, making the score 20 to 6 in favor of the Cubs. :Beach threatened several times during the early part of the game when they got down to the 10 yard line and then car- ried t'he ball to the 18 yard line in the final quarter only to bog down against the heavy Abbey line. Coach Jess en and Patcten both stated tat the Buts play- ed as well against Abbey as they ,did against Warlord City but 20 1,bs. per man started to tell during the tail end of the game. I,t was a diferen story here Tuesday night of this week when the Belfield Bantams came to Beach. The Buts took over after holding the Bantams after the kick-off and i.n three plays' had scored their first tothdown, when Jan Pettrson scred the irst TD on a Cross- buck throug"n the line. Jan scor- ed again in the second period did Irvin Bares, who saw con- siderable action as quarter back. Bob DeTenancour gathered in a pass from Gary Thompson and raced for the goal line. The final score came vthen Gary Thomp- son went back to lvass from the 50 yard line and not being able to find a receiver carried th ball all the way, evading d side-stepping tacklers a ::he weaved down the field. ;;i" elfiel.d  scored their .' (r touchdown in the final quar ,but could not score their extra point. All thirty two Beach Bucs that were sui.ted up saw action and some of the boys proved  be quite promising. Richard Pesha howed up well on defense mak- ing some fine tackles and re- covering a fumble. All in all he boys played head up foot- ,ball and are showing marked improvement every week. The final game of the season will be played his coming Fri- day aternoon at 2:30 p.m. when the Bucs travel to Ki'lldeer to meet the Killdeer Cowboys in a game that is considered a toss- up.
