SM;;^^^^ 'A good team beat us' • Beanie "We were beaten by a good football team." With these words, Garrigan coach Beanie Cooper filed the 25-20 loss to Esthervillc in the record books Monday and began preparing his crew for the first of three straight home games here Saturday night against Clay Central of Royal. Game time is 8 p.m. Rugged Sioux City O'Gorman and then St. Edmond't follow on successive Saturday nights. "I'd say that Garrigan and Esthervillc were of about equal ability," Cooper said after the game. "This was their night to win." COOPER turned his atterj- tion to this week's game with Clay Central .The club defeated the Garrigan reserves last year 39-0 in their first meeting. They lost their opener to Primghar last Friday, 18-7. "Our scouts reported Clay Central has a big, big line," Cooper said. "They have a middle guard at 285 and their tackles are 265 and 245." He neglected to mention their speed but said Clay Central has several quick backs. Garrigan's pass defense is going to get a good going over this week. The Bears gave up 178 yards in the air to Estherville, which completed six of eight passes for a 75% average. Garrigan threw only once and that was incomplete but they'll probably begin passing more as the season goes on. "Every time they (Estherville) were in trouble, they passed," Cooper said. "We ran 11 more plays (55 to 44)." BIGGEST LOSS to the Bears was that of defensive halfback Steve Erpelding, who broke his arm on the fourth play from the end of the game. He made a bruising tackle on the play. He'll be lost for the season and Mike Schiltz will probably go both ways at halfback to fill the vacancy. Muller also sustained a minor shoulder injury but it is not considered serious. Cooper praised the work of Kevin O'Brien at center and Muller, and also had nice words to say about his junior quarterback Tom Black. Schiltz picked up 7% yards per carry in 12 tries. In all, Cooper used about 18 or 19 men in the game. Garrigan had great student backing with a crowd of nearly 500 fans traveling to the game. All four school buses transported 176 students. STEVEl ERPELDING Sentral posts 12-6 victory Fenton — The Sentral high school football team posted its opening game victory Friday night as they swept past Kanawha 12-6 in a non-conference game. Sentral starts loop action at home this Friday against Lincoln-Central of Gruver. v Jerry Nerem scored one Sentral touchdown on a six- yard run and the other was tallied by Ken Marlow on a 50-yard pass play. The game was played at Kanawha. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST The Advance Football Guesting Contest opened last week and the $15 in cash prize* disappeared quickly — outside of the area by chance. All three winners were out of the Kossuth area. First place was won by ex-Algonan Dave Everds of Allison. He was one of only two contestants to miss just four of the games and considering there was a tie in the 22 games, this was a fine record. Second place was won by Jean Goff, Louisville, Ky. Everds had the closest to the top number of team points (46 by Louisville). Third was won by Ted Stang of Adair AFB in Oregon and a son-in-law of Brail Wright of Algona. He missed five games and hit the 46 points right oo the nose. f On the honor roll with five misses were Bill Dudding, Bancroft; Jane Fraser and Dave McCarthy, both of Algona. Mining six games were Jerry Puffer, Mrs. Charles Hoffmann, Wayne Christiansen, Jane Fraser, Brett Bartlett, Mary Kisch, Gladys Shumway, all of Algona; Jesse Shore, Titusville, Fie.; Marlyn Sachs, Des Moines. Mrs. George Baumann, Lakota; M. C. Pearson, Clarence. Another big contest appeared in Monday's paper. v Punt, Past and Kick event to be held Oct. 12 The 7th annual Punt, Pass and Kick competition will be staged in Algona at the old athletic field on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m., it was announced this week.

Twin Rivers edges Humboldt , 18-7 Muller bulls for gam ' Bode — Twin Rivers high school posted its second straight victory over Humboldt last Friday night, 18-7. The Pirates were the only team to defeat North Central Conference champion Humboldt a year ago. Over 1200 fans watched the game and saw Humboldt take a 7-6 lead at the half and then Twin Rivers took over for two second half touchdowns. Duane Marcellus, Twin Rivers coach, is an ex-Humboldt athletic great. Twin Rivers will meet Manson this Friday. The Pirates have their entire backfield from last year back and returnees Roger Clark and Mike Christiansen scored the three TD's. Quarterback Steve Bergum completed 9 of 15 passes for 139 yards.
