Star In 28.13 Victory Saturday f

By DOUG CROCKET, S2c tt;46'
Ending a thrilling, Frank Merriwell finish, in which "
"Wahoo" Mancos and Glenn McConnell took the parts of J: ti '
the storied hero, the Jax-Navy football team and the Corpus! 4'''':'
Christi Comets staged a gridiron tussle Saturday night .. -
iIII' i which will rank as one of the best ever played at Municipal 'S ''t.'
Stadium as 5,500 screaming football fans went wild over the
local squad.
Showing a fighting spirit no one ever knew they possessed -
the Jaxmen overcame a 13-3 lead by dint of sheer
courage and spirit. Scoring four touchdowns in the last 17
minutes of play, the locals came out on the long end of a
28.13 score.
Stars for the Jax team were Glenn McConnell, "Wahoo" f
Mancos, and "Tuffy" Thompson. McConnell scored three
touchdowns in the last seventeen minutes of play, one on a
1 yard off tackle slant, another on a 50 yard jaunt, and the
last on a spectacular 65 yard run in which he was aided :
greatly by a beautiful body block by Ernie Sandlin. Mancos,
in the role of a story book hero, came off the bench after
being held to small gains all night to run 25;) yards through
f, the whole Corpus Christi team and give Jax the deciding
touchdown. Thompson, meanwhile, was playing a game which
I brought back memories of his great games as an All-Am-
', crican at Minnesota and his days as a professional for the j
Green Bay Packers. Coach Kovalcheck said after the game '
that Thompson ran harder in the Comet game than he did
.....; when he was playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the
Ii e g I The closest either team came to a score in the first
period was when Luke Ludiker made a half-hearted at-
tempt at a field goal.
At the beginning of the second period, the locals had
possession on the Corpus Christi 37 and Mancos and Clarke ,
combined for a first down on the 25.:> Tuffy Thompson car- .
lied the ball all the way to the ten. Mancos carried to the
five and then Harry Knickelbine dropped back io the 15 and
r f kicked a field goal through the drizzling rain which fell
Maj during most of the second period. The ball hit one of the
uprights and caromed over the bar for three points, placing
Jax-Navy in the lead. ."
Yw Corpus Christi took the Kickoff and started a drive on
their own 30 which came to its climax when Ernie Strong
took the ball on an end around and went fifteen yards
through a befuddled Jax team for the score. Luke Ludiker ,
split the uprights for the extra point. .
Early in the third period, the Comets scored again when
Baudouin clashed over for a score from the six inch marker. .
Luke Ludiker missed the kick and the score stood at 13-3. On
this play there was a wild mix-up on the field which was
w broken up immediately. Everyone in the Stadium concededthe
game to Corpus Christi then and there. That is, every '.
one but the Jax-Navy eleven which came to life following _
that scuffle in a way never seen before.
Following the kick-off, they started their first driveof I
the game, but the Comet line stopped them on the 50.
The confident Comets tried to pass, but Howard Hansen
& i came out of nowhere, intercepted, and broke down the side
A S : line. He eluded three tacklers and headed for the distant
y,. goal. The Comets finally hauled him down on the 33. A 15 i
yard holding penalty set the locals back to the 50, but "Tuf- j
o fy" Thompson skirted right end, unleashed a tremendous .
K kw burst of speed to regain the lost ground, going all the way
? 1 down to the 30. Again it was Hansen who went wide around j'
) ::4 end until he was tight-roping along the right sideline. The
Comets had diagnosed the play, however, and were all lined
up, waiting for the big led head. In a bit of running that
would do credit to the great Glenn Davis, Hansen somehow .. I
got away from the whole team, and although he was hit an
immeasurable number of times by desperate Comets, he J
staggered all the way to the one. At this point, Glenn Mc- ,
Connell came off the TV-'I' repLvod: ( T'i'! m.vnn. and went
