The Madras White Buffaloes bow
out of state contention after the
Dalles Dragons buried them 52-13
on the Madras home field. The loss
ended one of the most successful
seasons for the Madras White Buffa
loes as there has never been a team
to make it through the first round
in playoff action.
The highly rated Dallas Dragons,
champions of the Capitol Conference
showed no surprises of what was
expected of them. Just last year,
Dallas made a good showing for
themselves in loosing out in the
state AAA playoffs. This, their
first year in the AA ranks, has had
them up in the higher bracket in the
standings all season long. Earlier in
the season they knocked off the
Pendleton Buckaroo team in a non
conference Rated No. 1 all season
long, until they were knocked off in
one game, they are now ranked No.
3 in the state.
The Dragons were on the receiving
end of the opening kickoff and,
from the first play from scrim
mage, fooled the entire defensive
unit, and some of the spectators as
well, as the QB faked a handoil to
one of the runners, then turned and
fired a pass to his receiver who was
all alone. With no one between him
and the goal line, the runner went
all the way in to score on a 63 yard
run. The kick was good giving
them the early lead 7-0, The Buffs,
unable to get anything going, punted
to Dalles. After a series of downs
they had third and long, again they
fooled everyone and went to the
airways to score their second TD
for the day. Dalles, not known for
a passing team, had quite a day in
that department piling up a chunk
of yardage through the air.
Along with a fine day through
the air, the Dragons displayed two
of the finest running backs in the
state who also piled up yardage
carrying the ball. The running of
Byrne and Scrabeck had the Buff
defenders on their toes all the time.
With two fine running backs like
these guys they could easily set the
stage for a good passing game.
After trailing 14-0, the Buffs got
into the scoring column on a 25
yard pass from Todd Beamer to
Tony Stacona, Lytle's kick was
good, giving the Buffs seven points.
But, on the kick-off, Dalles' Bryne
took the kick and ran 85 yards to
score for the Dragons. They were
not about to let the Buffs get too
close. This score and another by
the Dragons put them up 21-7. But
again they went to the air for
another score, this time a six-yard
pass from McBeth to Byrne, now
making it 28-7. Todd McGuire
answered back on the kickoff as he
broke tackle two or three times and
was out in the open and raced 90
yards for the score. A pass try for
two points failed leaving the score -28-13
at the end of the first quarter.
In the second q uarter the Dragons
wasted no time as they scored
three more TDs to give them a
commanding of 49-13 at the half. A
26-yard field goal capped the scoring
for the day, the kick by Garcia was
The Dallas Dragons meet Pleasant .
Hill in their next outing and the
winner of that game will be for the
championship with either North
Valley or Sweet Home. ,

Football games take their toll among players during a hard-played game. Here lies an unidentified Gladstone
gridster who was shaken up a little during the first round action in the state play-offs.
Run aimed at honoring George Wilson
The Madras Sun Runners is a
local running club founded by
George Wilson in 1980. George
was the inspirational leader of the
club until his death on October 25,
To honor George, the Madras
Sun Runner's have decided to rename
the "Madras Turkey Trot" (a run
started by George in 1981), the
"George Wilson Memorial Run."
The first running of this race will be
held Saturday, November 29th, at
The goal of this years run is
threefold: (1) To honor George
Wilson for all he has contributed to
our running club and the community;
(2) To raise money to assist his
family on offsetting some of their
expenses; and (3) To establish a
scholarship in George Wilson's name
to be given to a graduating senior
from Madras. The scholarship award
will be given to the athlete who
competed with the same dedication
and team spirit that George
Putting on a race is an expensive
proposition. Our club wants this
years race to be extra special, and
so we are asking the business com
munity to make a contribution to
the: George Wilson Memorial Run,
co Toni Brown, 1836 NE Hilltop
Lane, Madras, Oregon 97741.
Contributions large or small will
be appreciated. A contribution of
$25.00 or more entitles you to a
George Wilson Memorial Run T
shirt. Please specify the size you
want when you mail in your check.
If you cannot give us your financial
support, we will need numerous
volunteers on the day of the race
and would welcome any help offered.
Just call me at 475-7277 (work) or
We do not expect to make a
request to the business community
for financial assistance again for
this race. The first time a race is run
the expenses are higher. George
Wilson was a valuable member of
our community and I thank you in
advance for any assistance you can
provide for his race.
The Madras White Buffaloes were
host to the Tri-Valley representa
tive, Gladstone, in round-one of
the state AA football playoffs on
Saturday, November 8.
The White Buffaloes jumped out
to a 20-6 halftime lead and held on,
to defeat the Gladiators 26-20 to
advance to the quarterfinal round.
Gladstone got on the scoreboard
first from a four-yard run by Daryl
Fisher, the kick for the PAT went
wind giving the visitors a 6-0 lead.
The Buffaloes strike right back
when quarterback Todd Beamer
connected with Todd McGuire on
a 24-yard touchdown. Lytle's kick
was good, putting the Buffs out in
front, 7-6. The second Buffalo score
came from a Gladstone fumble on
their own 28th giving the Buffs
good field position. Beamer rolled
right, cut back and went in to score
from six yard out. Lytle's kick put
the Buffs out in front 14-6. On a
fourth down situation for the Gla
diators, Butch David broke through
and blocked their punt and picked
the ball up and ran down the side
line into the end zone but an illegal
block nullified that TD run but set
up the Buffs in good field position
on the Gladiators 28 yard line. A
few plays later, Todd McGuire ran
in from nine yards out. Lytle's kick
went wide, putting the Buffs out to
a 20-6 lead as the first half ended.
It was like waking up a giant in
the second half as the Gladiators
took the second half kick and
marched right down field to score
on a 15 yard pass. Fisher ran the
ball in for two points. A big break
for the Buffs came when the center
put the ball over the punters head
and the defensive unit downed him
on the one yard line, giving the
Buffs a first and goal on the one.
On the next play Lytle punched the
ball over for the score. A pass fell
incomplete on the try for two leav
ing the score 26-14. In the final
quarter Gladstone strikes again on
a seven yard pass. A run for two
points failed, but they were still in
striking distance down by only six.
Late in the game the Buffaloes
turned over the ball on the 18 yard
line but the defense rose to the
occasion and held the Gladiators
for four downs. Gladstone had no
more time outs so the Buffs just ran
the clock out giving them the win
ad advance in state playoffs.
