O'Gornwn to be toughest j, foe-- early to win, 44-7 Bu w '•• •• ' , - > * '~> - - ^ • "- Garrigan high school bombed Clay Central of Royal Saturday, night 44-7 before in overflow crowd at the Bear field to post their opening victory of the season. Clay Central wain't •• bad as most fans had thought they would b«, but they weren't nearly as good as Garrigan on this night. The Bears took the heart out of the visitors by scoring twice in the first V/t minutes of the game. Nothing that easy can be expected this Saturday night ,vhen mighty Sioux Falls 0'- Gorman rolls into town. The South Dakota crew is 2-1 for the season, dropping a tough decision to Sioux Falls Washington in their opener and then beating another Sioux Falls school 19-0 and Aberdeen, S. D. 27-6 last week. Coach Beanie Cooper leaves no doubt about one thing — "This will be the toughest team we'll play all season." Considering the Bears have Carroll Kuemper awaiting them later on, this is a big statement. COOPER was pleased with the overall Bear effort. "The officials told us after the game there was a lot of 'popping' out there Saturday," Beanie said. That "popping" he refers to is the sound of pads meeting pads. Clay Central hit hard but got hit hardest right from the start when Tom Black returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. John Winkel, playing twin safety with Black, fielded the kickoff and handed off as the two criss-crossed. Black got a couple of key blocks up the sidelines, one of them by Dave McCarthy who was knocked out on the play, and sailed with,. out being touched. £ Muller ran for the point and so with '16 seconds gone, it was 7-0. Things got worse for Clay Central a minute or two later. Tom. Froehlich speared a third down pass and returned to the Clay Central 3'. Muller boomed for 25 yards on the second play and Mike Schiltz zipped in from the four. Muller's point run made it 14-0 and really, you just didn't figure Clay Central was in the game after that. Matter of fact, they weren't. Tilonka. 204 TOM BLACK STEVE YOUNOWIRTH LUKE KOLLASCH MARTIN'S MEMORY FADING Lampright's dash the longest! THEY PEELED off three first downs to get into Garrigan territory late in the quarter but with 4:15 gone in the second quarter, the Bears climaxed a 67-yard drive with Schiltz again going over from the nine and Muller running the 21st point. John Mertz and Muller had a hand in this drive as did Black with a six- yard scamper. And then Garrigan capped the first half scoring by picking up two safeties within three minutes of each'other. One in a game is an oddity— two in one quarter is almost unbelievable, Garrigan kicked off after TD No. 3 and CC took over on its 29. A motion penalty cost the visitors five yards and then a huge loss put them back to the three-yard line. The ball-carrier was overwhelmed at the goalline for the first safety. A SHORT time later, Gar- 'rigan fumbled on the Clay four-yard line but on the next play, the Bear line swarmed in to nail the runner for a second safety. The Bears scored three more times in the second half. Black kept the ball to go 29 yards after a Jack Muller interception for the first second half score in the third period. .The locals marched 58 yards shortly after with Schiltz going in from the eight for his third touchdown of the night. Jim Boudewyns blocked a CC kick midway in the final per iod and Mertz carried in for the final marker. Clay Central had one fine player in quarterback Tim O 1 Clair. fie was about the only real backfield threat the visitors had and he put CC on the Scoreboard for fee night with a nifty 73-yard dash on a fake kick with just IQ seconds left in the game. COOPER fead praise for Me- "Champ" Martin has been around longer in coaching circles than any other local mentor and thus when he said Rick Black's -86-yard scrimmage run in the Emmetsburg game was the longest since World War 2, it was taken as fact. There were some others who couldn't remember a longer run either. Martin came to Algona right after World War 2 and was line coach for most of the ensuing 20 years until he called it quits a year ago. Ex-Algona high school athlete Bob Lampright spotted the story in the Advance at Baltimore, Md. where he is stationed in the Air Force and immediately called his mother, Mrs. Harold Lampright in Algona. "Mom," he said over the phone, "they've made an error. Brother Bill ran 99 yards for a touchdown one time. I remember it 'cause I was the proudest guy in town." So Mrs. Lampright dug in her files and sure enough, on the night of Sept. 28, 1951, Eagle Grove defeated Algona 20-14 but one of the Algona touchdowns was a 99-yard run from scrimmage by Bill Lampright. .. .„. v t«pry<« • '. The run .came with just four minutes of the game left and the ball on the Algona one-yard line. Lampright broke through a hole in the line, cut to the sidelines and had all opposition beat at the 50-yard line. At that time, it was called the longest scrimmage run In Algona history although there probably havo been some kickoff returns that have been longer. Tony Guzowski was the coach that year. Bill is now an Algona trucker. 2-Algon. (Iowa) Advance THURSDAY, SEPT. 28,1967 MONDAY NIGHT LEAGUE NO. 1 W L Algona Flour & Grain --__ 10 2 Sears 10 2 Old Style -- 9 3 Hamm's 8 4 la.

High Game " Women: Jean Reynolds 191 Men: Dick Reynolds __ 257 for 3rd straight ! ' ^^ ; at Iowa Falls RICH BLACK Sustains .back injury : Coach explains RANDY RIEDINGER "Hit finest night" GREG ALLEN "Catches TO pass" Two down and six to go. This is how the Algona Bulldogs and their coach Keith Christie view the season as they prepare for their second conference game against Iowa Falls this week. It will be the first road game of the season (7:45 starting time) and will be another key game. The Cadets .haven't seer-' ed a point in losing two straight but Algona scouts reported they looked much improved in bowing to the Humboldt team Friday 14, 0. Iowa Falls lost its season opener to Elder* 33-0. "They .pass a lot and our not play the rest of the season and this would be a crippling blow. Still, his teammates took up the slack Friday night. First Mike j Betts moved into the important left half slot .and made> a crucial 34-yard gain to help set up Algona's first half! touchdown. The drive consumed less than 30 seconds in three plays. GREG JALLEN, who took Betts' place, at end, made a beautiful i catch of Roger Barr's pass for the first touchdown. He'll be a starter Friday as Betts moves into the backfield. "Clarion was a better team than Emmetsburg," Christie said. "They hit harder and were more mobile although I don't think there was: much difference offensively." Christie was still bubbling over Randy Riedinger's 21- yard TD run for Algona's second and last touchdown in the third quarter. ; "Wasn't that a nice run?" pass defense is probably the $he asked; Riedinger eluded or -weakest part of our game,' Coach Christie reported Sunday. That's why the Bulldogs •got plenty of work on passes this week; v'v : : .BIGGEST BLOW to Algona's hopes came with the loss of Rich Black, the, talented senior halfback who performed so brilliantly in the opening game win with : Emmetsburg. Black injured his back early last week in practice , but kept the injury to himself, hoping it would improve. It didn't and it got worse as the gam* progressed Friday. He was limping noticeably late in the first quarter and he. cam* out shortly after and could hardly walk by the end of th* game. "His back improved greatly over the weekend," Christie said, "but we won't know anything until he sees a doctor at Mason City Thursday. Black will probably not play Friday."

The call is a technical one it makes one wonder why the officials tho week before didn't call the same thing. If there was any heartbreaking moment in the night it was during one of these offside penalties. Betts had brought the crowd to its feet with a sensational 80-yard touchdown run after fielding a Barr pass. "It was a tough one to lose but mark my words, Betts is going to take a punt or kickoff back all the way before the year is out," Christie predicted. ran c overt three or four would- be tacklers before breaking into the clear. There's no doubt [what he lacks in size (he's A small 155 pounds), he makes up for in guts. There just aren't many 155-pound fullbacks around anymore. COACHES also praised the work; of Tim Black, Brad Farnham, Jim Utt and defensive ends Don Hagen and Neal Smith. "This Utt has improved so much we can't believe it," Christie reported. The! fans must realize it too sincjs he was in on tackle after ! tackle during the first 'two 1 games. Why all those offside penalties?
