'Contrary to their names, fish- ers do not fish. The majority of their diet consists of small ro- dents. There is no doubt that tile fisher is once again a part of West Virginia's rich wildlife heri- tage. In 1989, there were nine fishers legally harvested in West Virginia. There have been 107 fishers harvested since 1975.' West Virginia's fisher trapping regulations are c.onservative. The season limit of one fisher allows a limited .harvest while at the same time, ensures population growth and furnishes wildlife bi- ologists information on the spe- cies necessary for its nlanage- nlent.

East compleled two of four passes but the two accounted for 132 yards and two touchdowns on long slrikes. Meanwhile the defense inter- cepted lonr Cougar passes and returned one of them tor a tou(h down. The Cougars received tile opening kick-olf and showed little re spect 10r East's veteran defense, with seven starters back from last year, as they nlkxed Kenny Carr's running and Sam Carpenter's passinft to travel 60 yards in 11 plays for the first score. Cart carried eight times in the drive, inclu(ling the final eight yards for the touch- down, and Sean Venney caught two passes for first downs, one at the Spartans 27 and the oilier at the East 15. Scott Knoll's kick for tile extra point was good and Jefferson County had an impressive 7- 0 lead with six minutes left in tile first quarter. But immediately Spartan hopes revived when Chuck Baldwin re turned the kJck-off 39 yards to the visitors 35 yard line. Good field position was just what East's inexperienced offense needed, with only three starters back from last year, as Rick Patterson and Steve Wilson alternated carries churning{ tip tile 35 yards in just seven plays. Wilson carried the final three yards for the score. Sam Johnson's kick lbr tile extra point was no good and the score stood 7-6. Neither team could move the ball llllJch oil their next possessions but with four minutes left in the half, tile action picked lip agahl. It started when the Spartans Sam Johnsorl intercepted a Carpenter pass at the Greenbrier 25. Three plays later Junior quarterback Sidney Coles flipped a third down and two pass over the line to Scott Weikle who raced 67 yards for the touchdown. The extra point try was no good but the Spartans had their first lead 12-7. Bootsie Washington returned tile ensuing kick-off to tile Spartan 47, once again giving tile Cougars good field position. With little time remaining in the half, Sam Carpenter went, to the air and colnpleled three passes orl lhe drive, tile final on, to Washington lot 18 yards, a score and what looked like a sure Cougar lead at the half. Scott Knoll added the extra point kick and Jefferson Counly led 14-12. But tile lead was not to hold up. After Greenbrier returned the kick-off to the 35 yard line, there was just time tbr one play left. As lime was rtmning out, Sidney Coles pulled the bah from center, stepped back and tossed a perfect pass over the middle to Sam Johnson who went the distance. Co2es' pass to Scott Weik]e for the two point conversion was good an(1 the Spartans lead 20-14 at tile half. And there was more for the capacity home crowd to cheer about oll a perfect night for football.

The kick for extra point failed but with 2:40 left in tile third quarter, tile visitors trailed only 28-20. Greenbrier then decided to use the clock but in the next three series could not muster a sustained drive and had to punt each time. meanwhile, the Cougars took to tile air playing catch-up and they eouldn't sustain the drives either. When the Cougars regained possession of the ball with 2:19 left in the game the hometown crowd was a little nervous with only a 28-20 lead. The nervousness soon disappeared though as Scott Weikle intercepted a Carpenter pass and returned it 21 yards for a touch down. Coles two point pass 1o Patterson put the game out of reach 36-20.
