Call For '"" Help Creates Vast Search TRUCK BEING UNLOADED i Last Sunday night a call was picked up on Channel 17 of the CB Radio unit by the Florala police by someone seeking help. The call was also heard by the Opp Police Department and Andalusia's unit. The Florala Police Department promptly swung into action and activated the rescue squad and various volunteer units in an attempt to Cont.

Overpowered cord to define the as their team with men of nd weight, be- by a tower- mch, 255 pound needless to say the kickoff and an offensive first series of to punt the ball Neither the 'Cats could get to rolling, and Some good de- in holding the line. Cot- tonwood's first touchdown started off with a fumble in the backfield of Florala, which the Bears quickly took advan- tage of. The Bear's John Sistrunk took a handoff from the quar- terback and rambled 45 yards to hit paydirt for the first six pointer. The PAT was good and Cottonwood led by a score of %0. On the next series of downs the defensive unit of the Bears caused the 'Cats to fumble once again and this time it was costly. Ricky Jackson quickly took advantage of the fumble and ran the ball in the endzone 45 yards out for the s~cond touchdown for the Bears. The PAT was no good and the lead for Cottonwood was now 13 to 0. Cottonwood mounted yet ano- ther drive which began on their 19 yard line late in the second half and pushed all the way to the 23 yard line. A field goal was tried at this distance, but the kick was wide and the Bears went into the dressing room at half time with a 13 to 0 lead. Starting the second half saw little change in the battle on the field as Cottonwood had posses- sion of the ball most of the time on the clock. On their second possession of the ball, the Bears ground out 3 first downs and a 14 yard pass to take the bail into the endzone. The two point was good and Cottonwood led the Wildcats by 21-0. Again Florala's mistakes cost another touchdown as they fumbled on the first play after kickoff from the Bears, andthe Cottonwood team took over on the 23 of Florala. Five plays later the Bears took the ball over the goal line, scoring the last of their touchdowns for the night. The PAT was good making the score 27-0. The mistakes that have pla- gued the 'Cats all season was the cause of three touchdowns for the Bears, as each time the Cottonwood defensive unity pounced on the ball. Most of the fumbles recovered were deep in Florala's own territory, making the carrying of the ball across the goal line much eas- ier for the 'Cats. Florala plays Red Level Fri- day night in their Homecoming game. Wildcat Ricky Andeno. Tackles Ricky Jackson Of The Cottonwood Bears Chief Arthur Turner Principal Chief East Of The.
