For a change, the Wildcats capitalized on the mistakes of their opponents, rather than have the other team capitalize on their fumbles. Red Level fumbled 4 times and Flo- rala recovered all four of the fumbles, one on the Red Level II yard Line and 27 yard Line. The first fumble of the Ti- gers resulted in 6 points on the scoreboard for the alert Wildcat defense. The offen- sive unit took over the ball on the II. yard line of Red Level, suffered one penalty, before putting the bail in the air on 4th down and 3 to score the touchdown. The PAT was no good and Florala led the Tigers 6 to 0 early in the first quar- ter. The next TD came after Red Level was unable to mount any offensive punch and had to punt the ball to the 'Cats. The ball was placed down on Florala's own 34 yard line, where the Wildcats began to march up the field to paydirt. Back Tim Caw- then made two fine runs, one for 25 yards and one for 16 yards, to set up a 1 yard plunge by Gregory Burke for the TD. The PAT again was no good and Flu- rain had a 12 to 0 lead in the E The lovely contestants forthe 1974-75 Nationad Peanut Festi- val Queen will arrive in Dothan Tuesday, October 22nd, to start their evenings of competition for the title "Miss National Peanut Festival Queen".
