PATRICK LEADS BULLDOGS TO VICTORY OVER LOBOS
KILGORE - Kilgore spotted the Longview Lobos 14 points here Friday night, then stormed back to take a 32-21 victory before 3,000 homecoming fans.

Gayle (Unstoppable) Patrick, hard-charging Bulldog fullback, was the difference for the local eleven as he personally took command of the situation after Longview had scored to quick touchdowns on a long pass and a breakaway run.

This Kilgore triumph evened the record between the schools at seven all dating back to 1939 and kept the home field jinx intact. Every year since 1945, the home team has ben the victory in the Bulldog-Lobo tilt.

Jack Parker, Lobo quarterback, got the scoring parade underway in the early minutes of the game when he connected with Bobby Crawford on a 65-yard pass play. Parker hit Crawford on the Kilgore 40 and the speedy halfback outran the Bulldog secondary to pay dirt. Jerry Barnes kicked the point after.

The next time the Lobos got the ball, they drove to a touchdown in four plays. Gerald Moore broke off right tackle and raced 66 yards to the Kilgore one before being overhauled from behind by Don Holley. Crawford picked up the touchdown in two tries at the line and Barnes added the point.

Things were looking pretty dark for the Bulldogs as the Lobos were making the game look like a runaway, but the Bulldogs just hadn't started rolling yet.

Patrick started a 19-point Kilgore deluge by intercepting a Parker pass on his own 45 and reaming his way 55 yards for a touchdown as he got some able downfield blocking and picked up his blockers as he headed goal-ward. Larry Hickman kicked the point and Kilgore trailed 14-7 at the end of the first quarter.

On the second play of the second quarter, Patrick broke his way through the Bulldog line onto a 38-yard charge over left guard that found the chunky fullback almost stopped on several occasions, but he bulled his way on over the double stripe. Hickman's kick was blocked and the Bulldogs still trailed by a point.

But the outcome seemed inevitable as the Bulldog backfield of Patrick, Eddie Riley and Jimmy Hutchinson began grinding out yardage and quarterback Larry Cummings interspersed the ground attack with some sharp passing of his own

After holding the Lobos for downs and forcing a kick on the next series of plays, the Bulldogs drove 70 yards for a lead that was never overtaken. Cummings passed once for 13 and twice for 18 yards and Patrick picked up 22 yards in one dash to set up most of the yardage.

Patrick climaxed the drive as he made his third score of the game on a one-yard plunge over right guard. Hickman kicked wide on his try for point and the half ended 19-14 in favor of Kilgore.

After an exchange of punts in the early minute of the third period, the Red and White opened another scoring march of 69 yards in five plays with the payoff comping on a 59-yard pass play from Cummings to Jere Nichols. Nichols hauled in the ball on the Lobo 35 and sprinted into the end zone untouched. Hickman added the point for a 26-14 lead.

Each team adde another touchdown in the final period.

Kilgore took a 32-14 lead hone Eddie Riley hit left guard, shook loose from the Longview secondary and romped into the end zone 22 yards away. The score was set up when Jerry Watson intercepted a Parker pass on the Lobo 25 and returned it to the 20. Hickman's try for point was wide.

The games full of thrills for the crowd, but the coaches, Ty Bain of Kilgore and Swede Dees of Longview, must have added a few new gray hairs to their collection as both teams made costly mistakes.

Kilgore fumbled 10 times and lost the ball on five occasions. Longview fumbled five times and lost four. The Bulldogs also cashed in on their alert pass defense as they intercepted four stray Lobo aerials, while none of the Kilgore passes were intercepted.

A charging lineman, Dean Hesse, blocked Cumming's punt in the third quarter and fell on the ball on the Kilgore 16, but a penalty and a lost fumble halted the Lobo thread.
