B E N S O N H I G H N E W S Friday, November !1, Page 4 Warriors, Bunnies Vie Tonight for Metropolitan Rabbits Drop South, Central American, Notional Division Leaders Clash at Rosenblott In 7:30 Metro Ployoff Fray By CkaHes Packard A coveted Metropolitan championship is at stake tonight at 7:30 when Benson and Westside clash at Roecnblatt Stadium. Westide, 8-1 overall and No. 1 in current State ratings, represents the American division of the con- ference. Benmn. the National lea:Ue leader, is 6-3 for the year and No. 7 in the World Herald charts. Both teams are 5-1 in divisional standings. Westside is u quick, light team compared to the Bunny behemoths. The Warriors move well on offense as well as being the conference's top defensive squad. The Warrior backfield boasts lightning-quick Guy Ingles. When this 14!; lb. speedster spots a hole in the line he wastes little time making use of it. Warrkr hckfield Has Power, Strength For sheer power the Warriors strike you with backs Jon Jansen and Bob Williams. Bunny defenders Larry McDermott, Jerry Pleake, Russ Buller. along with the rest of the defensive squad will have to be tough and exceptionally quick to stop tonight's Warrior running attack. Heard enough? Well, Westside isn't hurt by any mear at the quarterback spot. Senior starter A1 Somewhere among oil those Eagles is Benson's Jim Douglas scoring the go-ahead tally. Bach and equally-as-good reserve Dave Turnquist throw well and run dangerously. Bach executes the option play like a pro. When sweeping either end he will keep the ball or pitch out to a tailing back at the moment he's hit. Watch for the play a lot tonight. The Warriors have vastly improved since their 7-0 victory over the Hares in the Sept. 9 grid opener. In their nine outings they have totaled 240 points to their opponents 36. Vikings Hand Warriors bone boss Westside's only loss of the year came from North, 12-9. North was a 25-20 victim of Benson but West- side has also dropped No. 4 Tech and shut out No. 5 Prep, 19-0. The latter being a 32-6 victor over Benson. ImpresSed? With all those credentials the Warriors look as if they can't be beaten tonight. Although they are hungry for their first city championship as well as the State title the Bunnies can hardly be counted out. Benson looks just as impressive. The Bunnies haven't won a conference title since the days of Morrie Bant- her and Bob Fischer. That was four years ago and you can be assured the Hares won't let down for tbie opportunity. Dcmtlles Leeds Hns Senior quarterback Jim Douglas is a well respected pr and runner, tie heads a list of strong backs such as Jim Langenbach, Robbie Chandler, Tom Johnson, and Joe Starlin. The Bunny offensive team ham totaled 212 points to their foe's 112. Both squads boast fine defenses and both offensive units may find the going tough near the goal lines. Both teams have fine placement kickers. A field goal or an extra point could easily be the deciding factor in game which promises to be close. Bonaon'a Doug Rothery has not yet attempted a three pointer but has the ability when called upon. Warrior Art Denny proved his value and important range when he booted a 30 yarder against Burke. Prediction? A toss-up. Desire and hustle will de- termine the winner of the Metro conference because both WeJtside and Benson are equal in ability and strsngth. Harriers Compete for State Title Benson's fast-moving cross coun- try team has its sights set on the NHSAA state cross country title to be decided on Lincoln's two- mile Pioneer Park course Satur- day. The Bunny harriers gained a ticket to the state test by finish- ing second in the Omaha district meet, being outclassed only by North. The Vikings totaled 22 points to the Rabbits' 39. Carrying Benson's colors over the two-mile Boys Town course were Dave Bradley, fifth with a 10:04 time, Greg Carlberg, sixth with a 11:01, and Ralph Bradley, tenth with a 11:21.

"We had six backfield men out at one time," recalled Coach Ed Hanson. Because of this, the squad suffered from "quite a few fum- bles." The season's peak came when the junior hares marred Creighton Prep's perfect record by defeating them, 13-6. Central, another squad with a near-perfect season, was beaten by Benson in a one-sided battle, 27-0. With backfield strength ebbing, the underclassmen lost to South, 25-14 and Boys Town, 20-13. Both games were lost in the final four minutes of play. Abraham Lincoln and Rummel both fell prey to four-touchdown attacks by the J.V. gridders, 27-0 and 26-0 respectively. The season closed with a 21-12 loss to Burke. "They were the on- ly club that had us outmanned," commented Coach Hanson, "and that was because they were all juniors." Since the job of the Junior Var- sity is to build for future varsity teams, Mr. Hanson believes this year's season to be a "successful" one. He feels that the boys have gained experience, improved con- siderably, and that many will go on to help the varsity next year. An opening loss to Boys Town thwarted the Sophomore footballers from a perfect season, but the Sophs came back to finish the sea- son beating their next five oppon- ents. "Their success was due to their being a well-balanced ball club," remarked Coach Dave Lewis. The team scored 180 points to its op- ponent's 32.
