Description

The Braves from Peoria, Illinois,
scored first on a 22-yard pass from
Don Stamp to Gordon Busse after a
minute and a half had elapsed in the
game.
But the Saints showed no concern
for their opponents' early score as they
started eating up the ground to victory.
Mitch Ware scampered 75 yards to
knot the score.
The next time the hosts got their
hands on the ball, Jack Brookhart went
off tackle on a buck lateral play for
15 yards to give the underdog Bees a
12-6 margain. The Braves began to
move for a score, but the pint-sized
Brookhart snatched one of Stamp's
aerials and electrified the crowd with
a 77-yard broken-field touchdown
jaunt. Ware's kick split the uprights
to give the victors their 19 point total.

Abbott (60) wasn't affected much by the would-be Bradley tackler as he
continues his gain during this spirited game.
