The Patriots dominated play with a ball control offense and a tough defense. The Patri- ots did not punt once in the game as they rolled up 283 total yards offensively. And the de- fense limited the Spartans to just 136 yards on the ground and 12 passing. The Spartans were ranked fourth in the state going into the game based on a 9-1 record. Wheeling Park was ranked #5 with an 8-2 mark. But Quarter- back Kevin Heller, who scored four touchdowns, and Running Back Dale "Bookie" Johnson, who rushed for 150 yards, kept the Spartan defense off balance throughout the game. In fact, it looked llke the Patriots had sto- len East's game plan of ball con- trol and big plays. The Patriots put together drives of 66, 77, 48, 57 and 42 yards for their five touchdowns. East scored after drives of 79 and 23 yards. Spartans got the ball first but couldn't move It and Aaron Ambler punted to the Patriots 34. Heller's l l-yard pass to Shane Saunders and a 33 yarder to Richie Beckett, coupled with the running of Dale Johnstm, were too much for the Spartan defense as Heifer sneaked in from the one-yard line for his first score of the afternoon. He would score three more times on runs of 4, 7 and i yards. John Apprey kicked the extra point and the visitors went up 7-0. After Rick Cline returned the kick-off to the Patriot 21-yard line, the Spartans looked like they were, ready to take charge as they did so many times this season. And once again it was blue-chip back Steve Wilson who took charge. The 180-pound senior tailback piled up 84 yards on the drive, overcoming two East penalties, and raced 44 yards on the eighth play of the series for the touchdown. Wilson would gain only seven more yards the rest of the game. Rich- ard Banton's pass to Scott Weikle for the two-point conver- sion gave the Spartans their only lead of the afternoon, 8-7. The lead did not hold up long though as Heller mixed up his plays extremely well. Johnson and Joe Jerome dld the bulk of the work but Brian Dickman chipped In with a 14-yard re- verse on a 77-yard, 12-play drive. Heller carried the final four yards for his second score and a 13 to 8 lead. The pass for the two-point conversion was In- complete but the Patriots had a lead they would not surrender. It was on the next series that the Spartans took a fatal gamble. With fourth down and one yard to go at their own 48- yard llne, the Spartans' Mike Patterson was stopped by Butch Broadhurst and the Patriots had great field-position. Seven plays later, with 1:40 left In the half, Helier scored his third touch- down on a seven yard run. John Apprey's extra point klck upped the score to 20-8 at the half. To open the second half it was Johnson, Johnson and Johnson again. The punishing runner picked up 56 yards on the first four plays taking the ball to the Spartan one-yard line where Heller carried in for his fourth score. Apprey's extra point kick put the game out of reach 27-8. East could not move the ball Bruce Eagle against the Patriot defense but got a break when Aaron Ambler's punt was fumbled and Leonard JOEL L.

Patterson scored from one yard out seven plays later. Sidney Coles' pass to Wilson for the two-point conver- sion made the score 27-16. But that's all the Spartans could muster. Dale Johnson returned the Spartan kick off 43 yards to the Greenbrier 42 to start the next drive. Jerome and Johnson picked up yardage with ease but a 19-yard dash by Dickman for the touchdown was the final score. The extra point-kick failed and the third quarter ended 33- 16. And the game ended that way. In the final period Jack Mor- gan, Sam Johnson and Scott Weilde each intercepted a pass to give the Spartans possession but no score resulted. The Patriots gained 208 yards on the ground and 75 in the air. East gained 136 yards rushing and 12 passing. Johnson led all rushers with 150 yards on 19 carries and Jerome added 36 yards on ten carries for the vic- tors. Wilson led East with 91 yards on 19 carries, Cline added 36 yards on five attempts and Pat- terson had 19 for seven tries. For the season, Wilson gained 1356 yards and scored 14 touchdowns Patterson ac- counted for 684 yards and 11 touchdowns. SUMMARY: Spartarm 8, O, 8, 0 --16. Patriots 7, 13, 13, 0 -- 33.
