Waterloo Columbus, 33-0 loser to East Waterloo, top team in the ttate, Friday night, will visit C-afrigan Field for a meeting with the Bears this Saturday night. Columbus racked up a 33-19 verdict over the Bears at Waterloo a year ago. The Garrigan-St. Edmond fray proved to be an offensive struggle from opening whistle to final gun. The Bears marched 63 yards in 11 plays after receiving the opening kick-off and went into the lead for guud when Dick Hcinen -rammed his way into the end zone with half the first period gone. Bill Reed ran for the extra point, and Garrigan had a 7-0 lead, •St. Edmond had a chance to tie the score less than five minutes later. The .visitors marched 59 yards in 10 plays to make it 7-6. Jim Rcis, one of the top ball-toters all night, went the final six yards for the.TD, but an attempted place kick by Quarterback Denny Lawler went astray, so the Bears remained In front. March, Marc!», March The pattern remained " the same following th? ensuing kickoff. Garrigan took over on its own 20, went to the 25 before the first quarter ended, then continued an 80 yard march to pay- dirt. This time it took 12 plays to get six points. Bill Reed slashed the final four yards after taking turns with Phil Kinsey, Oscar Froehlich, Dick Heinen and Bob Reed while moving to the score. Bob Reed ran the extra point to Win 35-26; A.H.S. 'Flagged' Dow make it The rest of the 'first half was played near midfield and was scoreless. End John Murphy of the Bears tossed ^awler for two consecutive losses totalling 26 yards to provide plenty of excit- ment on the final plays of the half. Garrigan got its next chance to score minutes after the second half got underway. The Bears came up with a St. Edmond fumble and went right to work from the visitors' 40 yard line. Bob Reed went all the way on the first play, but a clipping 'penalty cancelled the score and put the ball on the St. Edmond 36. Bill Reed and Heinen carried to the 23 and Bill then took off and dashed into the end zone. Brother Bob's extra point ran the score to 21-6. .Visitors Close Gap . A long pass put St. Edmond in position to close the gap after the next kickoff. It took only eight plays for the Fort Dodge- outfit to go 63 yards. Tom Lciss went the final 10 to make it 2112. St. Edmond fumbled and Bill Higgins of the Bears cuddled the ball on the St. Edmond 24 early in the fourth period! Bob Reed went to the six in two carries and Froehlich counted on a keeper. Bill Reed added the extra point, making it 28-12. St. Edmond, sensing that each team was supposed to score every time it got its hands on the ball, went 79 yards in five plays to further complicate the score keeping job. A pass from Lawler to Jim Risctter, who got behind the Garrigan secondary in good shape, ate up the final 60 yards. This time, Lawler ran the extra point to make the score 28-19. Score Clincher Garrigan got tne ball on thi. 50 when the Kickoff went out of bounds and proceeded to put the game out of reach. On the ninth play, after ground plays moveu the ball to St. Edmond's eight, Froehlich found Lyle Loebach all alone in the corner of the end zone and hit him with a soft pass ipr the final Garrigan TD. This time, Froehlich ran for the extra point. Five plays later, St. Edmonri had put the final points on tin- board. The visitors went 53 yards, including 15 on a penalty and Leiss went to the final eight yards for the TD.
