The team faced the Skyline Grizzlies in Idaho Falls yester- day. The results were not avail- able at press time. Last Friday, in Bronco stadium, the Lions collected their first victory of the season by de- feating a tough Pocatello team, 10-7. The Lions were ranked two in the state and Pocatello three. Senior Phil Keene booted a 20 yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, providing the winning margin for the Lions. The score was set up when seniors Malcom McKibben and Scan Cafferty combined to jar the ball loose from a Pocatello run- ner. Cafferty munched the runner and McKibben fell on the ball. The game was highlighted by the play of the defense. They con- tinually forced the Indians into mistakes, recovering numerous fumbles and intercepting three passes. The first touchdown of the sea- son came for the Lions early in the second quarter when senior fullback Steve Saleen bulled over from the five yard line. This staked the Lions to an early 7-0 lead after the conversion by Keene. The Green and Gold was not so The Senator-00-00-00 fortunate in thenr opener against the Gonzaga Bulldogs of Spokane. The non-conference opponent stunned the Lions 6-5, handing then] their first non- conference season opener defeat ever. The Gonzaga defense was out Ior blood as they dealt serious blows to the Lion offense sending senior tailback Cedric Minter and senior quarterback John Barrett to the locker room with injuries. Minter's injury may have ended his high school football career. Even though these injuries hurt the Lions it was the fumbles that spelled the difference in the game. They lost four fumbles, all in very costly situations. As in the game against Pocatello the defensd provided the key for the Lions. They held the visitors scoreless in the first half and scored a safety. They led at hall" time 5-0. Coach Dec Pankratz was happy will) his defi:nsc.

The Senators were defeated in the semifinal game by Minico of Rupert, 6-0. The loss, coupled with an earlier loss to the same Minico team, eliminated them from the tournament and gave them their third place finish. THE EARLIER loss came after the Senator team soundly defeated Pocatello I1-1, behind the pitching of Senior Roy Hall and the consistent hitting of the entire line-up. The Senators went into the top of the eighth inning with a 6-3 lead only to see it turn into a 8-6 deficit. The Sage used timely hits and three Senator walks to score five runs and then held on for the victory. fending state champion, Lewis- Clark Twins. The Twins were considered heavy pre-tournament favorites but were dropped into the losers bracket by the Nampa Chiefs, eventual tournament champions. Before a crowd of 4,000 partial Lewis-Clark fans the Senators dropped the Twins 10-5, giving them their worst finish in the tournament in 26 years. THE SENATORS clearly out-played the Twins in all phases of the game, forcing them into out 12 hits. The highlight of the game was the performance of pitcher Roy Hall. After being pounded by the same Twin team earlier in the year, he pitched himself out of numerous jams by mixing up his pitches and leaving the Twin hitters shaking their heads as they strolled back to the dugout. The Senators had to go through a grueling district tournament to gain a place in the state tourna- numerous errors, while pounding ment. .... - .....
