Alabama All-Star Game




         
1973

      The North All-Stars won a hard fought victory over the favored South Stars by a score of 22-15. The South Stars opened the scoring when Neal of Banks blocked a punt which the South recovered on the North 12 and with the aid of a 5-yard penalty, Alabama bound Woody Buchanan plunged for 5-yards and Calvin Culliver of W. S. Neal, also headed for Alabama, rammed over for the score. Finleyson's extra point was good and the South had a 7-point lead with only one minute twelve off the clock.

      The North retaliated as Box gathered in a South punt on his 35 yard line, appeared to be stopped but spun away and raced for 65 yards and a touchdown - the two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving the South with 7-6 lead at the end of the 1st quarter.

      Poor ball handling by the South and pin point passing by Auburn bound Gargis led to the North touchdown and put them in the lead early in the 2nd quarter 14-7. But shortly thereafter the South took advantage of a fumbled punt by the North on its 28 yard line and Culliver scored again and with a two-point conversion the South led at the half 15-14.

      The second half was largely defense with the North mounting the only scoring drive from their 35 yard line on the strong passing of Gargis which gave the North a 22-15 advantage with 11:14 left in the game. Although the South threatened at the end, the North was able to hold them off for a well deserved victory.
