26-0 Garrigan Win Features Tight Defense Garrigan high school's highflying Bears, who got into the habit ot winning by taking the first' two games un their schedule, continued their winning ways with\ an easy, 26-0, win over Waterloo Columbus before a large crowd at Garrigan Field Sunday afternoon. The game, scheduled for Saturday night, was postponed Saturday morning due to rain. , The Bears will attempt to keep their I960 record unsullied when they host Austin Pacelli at Garrigan Field this "Saturday night. The Minnesota school' always fields a tough. team and downed the Bears 27*6 a year ago In the first meeting oi the two. It took Coach Beanie Cooper's crew less than seven minutes to go in front of Columbus Sunday. The locals couldn't move the ball 1 the first time they had possession of it, but it was a different story the next time. Taking over when Columbus failed . on a fourth down attempt on the Garrigan 41 yard line, the Bears needed only four plays to go all the way. First it was Bob Reed for 14 yards, then Dick Heinen banged his way for 21 yards to the Columbus 24. A penalty on the Invaders placed the ba.ll on -the 11 and Heinen gained'two to the nine. Bill Reed then dashed the final distance into the end zone ~ to pick up the first of his three , TDs during the afternoon. Brother Bob added the extra point to make it 7-0. 82 Yard Dash After the teams battled back and forth in the middle third of the field for more than 12 minutes, the Bears got their second touchdown in sparkling fashion. A Columbus punt put the locals in the: hole on their own 18. Undaunted, a hand-off went to Bill Reed Who slanted through the Columbus line, used the blocks of his mates to advantage while " getting through the' secondary, and went all the way — 82 yards — to make it 1^0. About four minutes remained in the half when a run by Knil.Kinsey fail' ed to 'get the extra point. It took the Bears quite.a while to score again, but when they did, another was added almost before the Scoreboard was brought up-to-d.ate. After spending all of the third period and the rirst eight minutes of the fourth round in Columbus territory, Garrigan came up with the long-gainer again. Bill Reed, a real terror with the ball and one of the imest halfbacks in the area, again took the honors. He slashed through the line, used one biock to advantage, and ran into the end zone after a 40-yard jaunt. Bob Reed attempted to add the extra point but failed so the locals led, 19-0. 4 Bob Takes Over It was Bob's turn a minute and 42 seconds later. This time, the Boars went 58 yards in five plays to score. Bill Reeu got 13 yards, then Bob got throe and Heinen two. Bob then zipped to the foui ynd scored on the , next play John Fandel added the extra point to run the count to 26-0. Garrigan's defense was tlit best by the Bears to date. With End John Murphy, who literally runs over the opposition, lead ing the way, the rest of the line and linebackers took the euu anc responded with tough tackling The terrific rush of the line anc ~ Murphy held Columbus to only 44 yards rushing and 21 yard through the air. The visitor.' managed to complete six of 1 passes, but two went for losses. Fifteen times during the day Columbus backs wound up with minus yardage.

It was. a team victory all the way, and must have been a comforting sight for the Algona coaching staff. The Bullpups, as, against Clarion a week ago, didn't wait long to break into the scoring column. After Clear Lake tried three passed arid then kicked, \ following the start of the game, Hutchins reeled off a 15-yard gain. Then Wetzel dropped back and fired a pass to Shackelford for a tally. Hutchins hit his right side for the extra point to make it 7-0. ' Clear- Lake overcame a penalty and moved to the Algona 37 yard line. But an attempted pass was picked off by Tom Waller who raced down the sidelines for the second Algona tally. Huchins again carried for the extra point. The next two touchdowns were Bill Wetzell's, one around right end and the second on a reverse at left end. The reverse play variations had Clear Lake in trouble all Evening. The half ended with the Bullpups leading, 27 to 0. Opening the second half, Wetzell tossed to Parsons for a 25 yard gain, and Wetzell executed another reverse for a score. A pass, Waller to Williams, made it 34 to 0, and an entire new Algona team came in for a spell. In the final stanza, passes again accounted -for the final two TD's. Wetzell tossed to Williams who was downed on the three, and Waller then flipped another to Williams for the tally. Waller hit the line for the extra point. The" final touchdown was the result of a pass from Ken Egel to Bob Garmes, making it 47 to In first down, Algona tallied eight, Clear Lake six, But it was he long runs and highly success- ul passing that kept the visitors off balance all jhe way. The Bullpups have some migh- ,y fine linemen in Smith, Kelley, and others, and Steinman's o punting was consistently good. The victory is the third' in a for the local frosh-soph row ;eam.

Best bet for Columbus was who carried Swea City Gets By Burt 59-7; Tl • I ft * I 1 Third Straight Swea City's high-flying Trojans raced to their third straight lop-sided win Friday night, a 59-7 verdict over Burt at Burt in a State Line Conference game. The Trojans, who have now chalked up a total of 155 points in three games while holding opposition to 19 points, will host Thompson, 14-13 loser to Kanawha Friday night, in another loop contest this Friday night. Burl is now winless in three outings. The Bears will travel to Titonka for a meeting with the unbeaten Indians this Friday night. Titonka remained perfect for the season with a 21-0 win over Sentral rriday night. Swea City, with five men scoring all the'TDs, got off to a fast start and led Burt, 35-0, at halftime. The onslaught continued throughout the final half until Burt's Terry Cook went one yard for a TD late in the final period Swea City's touchdowns were scored by Jack Henrichsen, Larry Clausen, Roger Conway, Bill Hubbard and Gary Snyder. Henrichsen counted three on runs of 9, 19 and 10 yards. Clausen went 18 and IB yards for a pair, Snyder went one yard and 16 yards for two, Conway caught a 10- yard pass from Clausen for his and Hubbard intercepted a pass and scampered 30 yards for his. Titonka Dumps Sentral 21-0; Still Unbeaten Titonka's unbeaten Indians scored touchdowns in the first, second' and fourth periods on their way to a 21-0 victory over Sentral at Sentral Friday night Sentral's punting 5 game and on- and-off defense kept the Indians from registering an overwhelming win. Titonka 'will host winless ' Burt, which dropped a 59-7 decision to Swea City Friday night, and Sentral .will travel to Armstrong in games this Friday' night. Both will be State Line Conference contests. Sentral spent most of the time on defense in the Titonka game. Time after time, long -punts by Daryl Preston got the Satellites out of a deep hole and made Titonka work for iis yardage. i Dick McGuire, Who has developed into ar fine running and pass-catching back, scampered 28 yards in the first period to put the first six points on the Scoreboard. A pass from Dennis Monson to Maurice Sathoff added the extra point to make It 7-0. Monson pulled a quarterback sneak and Rod Hench punched over the extra point in the second period to give Coach Lyle Opheim's team a 14-0 halftime lead. After a scoreless third stanza, Hench got the final TD on a four yard blast, then added the extra point to make it 21-0 in the fourth quarter. All of the Titonka TDs -came after marches of more than half the length of the field. Sentral, according to Coach Ken Walter, just wouldn't get anything going in'the way Of an offensive threat. Consequently, the losers were on defense most 6f the time. Leadeia along the defensive line for the Satellites were Dennis Stucki, freshman end, and Darrell Angus, tackle.
