It's a steal, 17-7
LBCC thumps Pasadena By PAUL McLEOD Staff Writer Patience paid off f o r Long Beach City College defensive back Bob Jones and his Viking teammates Friday afternoon. For nearly 60 minutes Jones waded through 20 pass attempts by Pasadena quarterback Kim Taylor. Jones signed his name in the LBCC record book with 17 seconds remaining on pass No. 21—his seventh steal of the year. The grab was the third interception by the Vikings (3-5, 3-2 conference) during'a 17-7 win over the Lancers at Veterans Stadium before an afternoon crowd of 831. The interception was more than just a persona! accomplishment for Jones. U not only tied him with Mike Battle (1965) and Rich Keller (1967). but established a new mark of 25 interceptions in one season by a Viking team. Earlier Shaun Ward's second steal of the day tied the M standard of ,24 set in 1967. M

The run put some fun in Lakewood High's football program Friday night. The Lancers, whose inability to move on the ground had become a dubious trademark of the 1975 team, combined two Tom Tereschuk touchdown passes to Paul Hamill, an opportune defense and 132 yards rushing to defeat Millikan, 28-7, at Veterans Stadium. The 132 ground yards may be an average night's work for someone like Artie Hargrove, but it's more than Lakewood had totaled in its last four games. It was a big win over a big rival before a big crowd of more than 10,000. The victory places Lakewood 2-2 in league, the same as Millikan, and a game behind secondplace Wilson (3-1), whom the Lancers close out against next week. The winner of t h a t game will be assured a place in the playoffs. Millikan helped Lakewood's cause considerably, turning the football over five times on fumbles and twice on interceptions. Three of Lakewood's four touchdowns were set up by turnovers. A fourth resulted when Mike Albarran recovered a blocked punt in the end zone. That play from the Ram 22, only 2:19 before halftime, broke a 7-7 tie. Millikan punter Mark Lampson just did flag down a high snap, hobbled the ball and then was swarmed over by four Lancers as he tried to get his kick off. Lakewood had drawn even with Millikan at 7-7 on the first play of the second quarter en the first of Tereschuk's TD passes to Hamill. Each covered 17 yards. Hamill took the ball away from Ram defender Rich Boatright at the two with a remarkable leaping catch. A fumble recovery by Andy Verdone of Lakewood at the Millikan 39 led to the TO.
