of power football last night when they gained the dubious
honor of being the seventh victim of the season for the
high flying locals.
The taste of victory over
the gridmen out of Holly,
wood, Florida, was sweet for
the Conchs after a defeat
and two frustrating years of
battling to ties with the up.
staters.
This was the game (or which the
Conchs were waiting.
They rose to the occasion. The
three thousand fans who braved
threatening skiea to witness the
clash were prepared for a closer
ballgame, but when the Conchs un
leashed the full fury of their single
wing football machine, there was no
holding them for the likes of the
Browards.
It was a particularly sweet tri
umph for several of the Conch per
formers who tasted the bitter dregs
of defeat three years ago in Holly
wood.
The forward wall was very sharp
last night. Besides showing the way
tor the Conchs determined ground
assault, boys like Frank Hood.
Ralph Garcia, Wayne Brantley and
John Carbonell, completely stymied
the attempts of the Browards to
bunch anything resembling the
offense they have staged in past
years.
Early in the ballgame, It looked
like the Conchs were going to make

a rout of it.
They kicked to the Bulldogs who
drove to an immediate first down
and then were set back by some
fine defensive work by Joe Russo.
Broward’s Chuck Bradshaw then
kicked out of bounds on the Key
West 23.
Mike Cates, who turned in a top
performance, on the first play from
scrimmage for the Conchs drove to
a first down there through center.
Red Stickney carried the ball on
the second play around right end
and the result was a 43 yard gain
all the way down to the Broward
25 yard line. On three successive
plays, Bill Haney, Cates and Stick
ney moved the pigskin down to
the Broward eight yard line for the
third Key West first down.
Three pbys later, the Conchs
were just inches shy of a touch
down, but Browards Ed Shuler, a
thorn in the side of the Conchs
throughout the evening made a
key tackle on fourth down that de
prived the locals of a touchdown
and gave the ball to the Bulldogs.
After the Bulhfogs had punted out
to the 38 and Favors had returned
the ball to the 80, Bill Haney sneak
ed off right tackle down to the 16
and Stickney swept right and to
the 14 yard line as the first quar
ter ended.
The second quarter produced
three Key West scores.
The Conchs required just two
plays to score in 35 seconds of
the second period.
Stuart Yates, fast becoming one
of the most valuable backfield pro
perties the Conchs possess, went
down to the four and Cates bulled
over for the score. Haney ran the
extra point and it was 7-0.
The Conch forward wall buried
any hope the Bulldogs might have
had of moving the ball after
they received the kick and Brad
shaw was again forced to punt. He
spiralled his boot out of bounds on
the Key West 42. Cates picked up
a quick first down on two plays
and then Red Stickney put the
Conchs back into scoring position
with a sweep around left end 28
yards down to the Broward 16.
Cates and Stickney moved the pig
skin down to the four yard line
from where Yates scampered over
on an off tackle smash.
Stickney ran the point.
With two and a half minutes to
go in the half, Stickney pulled off
an offensive gem when he went
all the way from the Broward 44
for a TD.
With just five seconds to go in
the half, the Conchs were again
knocking at the door to a TD
when Stickney's pass to Yates put
the ball on the Broward three yard
line. But the half ended before they
could cash in 00 their scoring
chance.
The third period was scoreless as
the Broward defense tightened up.
They got their dander up and ap
plied a rough touch to the pro
ceedings, a piece of strategy that
cost them two successive costly 15
yard penalties 'and allowed the
Conchs to penetrate to the Bro
ward six yard marker.
Stuart Yates romped over for
Key West’s fourth score on the
first play of the final quarter and
Haney supplied the point to make
the score 28-0.
Pint-sized Everett Atwell went
48 yards to a TD to provide the
next score for the Conchs. It was
the second such jaunt for Atwell
this year on the second time
he had carried the ball on offense.
He went off right tackle, hid be
hind his blockers and before the
stunned Bulldogs could recover he
was standing in the end zone.
But a defensive lapse on the en
suing kickoff took some of the ela
tion out of the Conchs when Chick
Katler went all the way for a score
from his own 17 yard line.
The ballgame ended with the
Conchs running the clock out on
the Bulldog 24 after they had stop
ped a Broward drive on the 11
yard line.
