The two big teams were as even as the score indicates. Garrigan will attempt to get win number six this Saturday night, Oct. 28, when the Bears travel to Fort Dodge for a meeting meeting with St. Edmond at 8 p.m. St. Edmond, edged by the Bears in an offensive struggle here a year ago, arc improved and feature feature a fine quarterback, Denny Lawler. It was apparent from the opening whistle Saturday night thai ihe Garrigan-Pacelli Garrigan-Pacelli game was going to be an offensive show—ihen as ihe baiile progressed, early indications indications of offensive sparks practically disappeared. Garrigan received the opening kick-oft' and Bill Reed ran it back 15 yiirds to the Bears' 33 yard line. Brother Bob Reed got a yard and Bill picked up eight before Jerry Krieps went for three and a first clown on the 45. Schneider Bootleg Fools Slim Bob Schneider replaced Krieps at the quarterback slot, faded and found Lyle Loebach slanting into the open on the left side. Schneider's pitch was perfect perfect and Lyle grabbed it near the Pacelli 40. He boomed into the end zone and the Bears held an astonishing 6-0 lead. John Fandel Fandel was hauled down short of the goal line on the point after attempt, and the Bears had the upper hand with less than two minutes of play gone. A fumble late in the first period period gave Pacelli its chance to score. Starting from the Garrigan 42, Pacelli got to the 26 when the quarter* ended. Two play? later, the visitors had a fourth down and 19 to go situation, so Bill Goblirsch tossed a short, flat pass to Brian Callahan, highly- touted Pacelli fullback. Callahan flipped his hips and zig-zagged in and out of the arms of several several Garrigan tacklers as he squirmed 32 yards to score. A placekick by Dennis Maschka split the uprights and Pacelli had a 7-6 lead with only 1:08 gone in the second period. That's all she wrote as far as scoring was concerned. However, there were many thrilling plays during the rest of the game and practically all of them were of the defensive variety. Late Chance Misses End Dick Stoulil gave the Bears a chance to score late in the second second period when he nailed Cal- j lahan for a 15-yard loss on the Pacelli 17-yard line on a fourth- down punt attempt. The Bears lost yardage on two consecutive plays, then Schneider launched a pass that floated toward Bill Reed near the left line of the end zone. Reed battled with two defenders and came down with the ball for an apparent six points, but a backfield-in-motion penalty nullified the play and the Bears lost the ball on downs one play later. Deepest penetration into enemy enemy territory by either team during during the final half came in the final quarter when a Garrigan punt took a bad bounce and Pa- eelli got the ball on the Bears' 27 yard line. The visitors were forced to punt and the ball went out of bounds on the Garrigan two. Bob Reed gained a yard and Krieps brought the crowd to its feet when he dashed 38 yards —and almost got away, on the next play. Garrigan got another chance a few moments later when Goblirsch of Pacelli was forced to throw a pass after a high snap from center on a punt attempt. The ball fell harmlessly and Garrigan took over on the Pacelli 26 yard line. The Bears couldn't gain, Pacelli took over and the clock ran out a couple of minutes later. Callahan Held In Check In a defensive game there are defensive standouts. For Garrigan, Garrigan, Steve Studer, Stoulil, Paul Seller, Krieps, the Reeds and several others were outstanding, while the Pacelli line 'was tremendous. tremendous.
