LOBOS SCORE IN FOURTH TO DEFEAT BRUINS
GLADEWATER - Edgar Worsham, the driving tailback for the Longview Lobos, put on a triple-threatening show here this afternoon and paced Pete Shotwell's Lobos to a 13 to 7 victory in the curtain ringer-downer for both clubs. It was a magnificent close to a season that saw the big fellow rise to the heights but twice - but those two times were worth waiting for. The win gave Longview third place in the loop.

It wasn't a one man show by any means because Worsham and some of the slickest pass-catching from Bob Cantrell, Howard McDonald, Billy Richardson and Archie Jones that a passer ever had but his kicking and his running alone would have made him a star today. Too, the Bruins took many a timeout to let a boy rest up a bit from a bone-crushing block or a jolting tackle that the Wolves' line dished out in large doses all afternoon.

Longview took a lead in the second period after an early drive was stopped by Baldwin, who intercepted a Worsham pass on his 14. Late in the opening canto the Wolves took a short kick from Murphy and started from their own 47. Bivins, on a reverse, gained one and Worsham passed 17 yards to McDonald. A pass was incomplete and Jones made a yard at left end. Worsham passed to Richardson for nine more and a first down to the Gladewater 25.

Worshipped passed to Cantrell for nine and, faking another, ran 10 more to the five, where the quarter ended. On the third place of the second quarter, Worsham hit left guard for the tally and kicked the extra point.

The Bruins, scrapping all the way, knotted the count in the same stanza. Sapp fumbled and Hale covered for the home team on the Lobo 49. Murphy passed to Fikes for 18 and a first down and line plays and a five yard penalty put the ball on the Longview 36. A 15-yard penalty for clipping against Longview hurt. Then a pass interference was ruled, giving Gladewater a first down on the 17. Hale hit left guard for eight yards. Jones following with a two yard jag at the same spot for a first down on the seven. Hale made six more at right guard and cracked left guard for the touchdown. Baldwin converted, his seventh extra point without a miss this year, and the count was tied.

There it stayed until late in the fourth quarter. On a short kick, the Wolves took over on the Bruin 45. Worship passed to Richardson for 20 yards as a starter and contacted the same receiver for seven https://lobohistory.com. He cracked right tackle for five and a first on the 5 and hit left guard for five https://lobohistory.com, putting the ball on the 10.

Then he slipped over left guard, cut to his left and ran across the goal line for the winning touchdown. On the 3-yard stripe a defender tried to stop him but Worsham threw his shoulder, head on, into the tackler and literally butted him out of the way. The kick was bad but the win was good.

Worsham passed 32 times, completed 13 of them for a total of 147 yards. He figured prominently in the 120 yards the Wolves running attack netted, and he punted eight times for an average of 42.7 yards from scrimmage. That, lads, is a fair country day's work for anybody.

The Lobos also rolled up 17 first downs to just five for the Bears.

The great play of Baldwin, Bear center, was the standout for the home team. He intercepted three passes and made himself generally obnoxious to the Lobo attack all day.

Playing their last game for Longview, Worsham, Sapp, Nick Carter, Roy White and Billy Huie all looked great. The whole club was in good form and the blocking was away above their season's average.
