Eleven Bear seniors close out grid careers here this Saturday night /*• ^^^•M^^^^^^M^^^^^HIMH^^^^BB^^^W«V^^^^^^^^^B«*^^^^^^B^^^^^^^^^^^B^^MH^^B^^—^^^~««« — i i ,... , ( Left to right, Jim Lalller, Mike Welp, Jack'Mullet, Kevin O'Brien, .ferry Plathe, Dave McCarthy, Mike Schiltz, Mike Elbert, John Mertz, Bill Richter and Dave Zeimet. Fourteen play last game for Algona high school here Friday night Left to right, Jeff Gilmore, Ian Davison, Tim Clark, Mike Dreyer, Don Hagen, Neal Smith, Jim Utt, Tom Jones, Steve Claude, Roger Barr, Rich Black, Randy Riedinger, Tom Parsons, and Steve Voyles. Bears win, 33-0; close with Newman; Algona vs Clear Lake Garrigan high school rolled up a huge 33-0 halftime lead and then reserves played out the second half on offense as the Bears won by just that score over LeMars Gehlen here Saturday night. 'The win gives Coach Beanie Cooper's team a 4-3 record going into the final game against Newman of Mason City here Saturday at 8 p.m. And the game, which figured to be a mismatch early in the season, now could be an exciting one. Newman pummeled Hoover of Des Moines 49-26 at Mason City Friday night and now have a 4-3 season's record. This is their first official year of football although they played several games last year. , Among their four wins is a 39-0 trouncing of North- wood-Kinsett. They lost by a 19-18 count to St. Edmond's of Fort Dodge, a team Garrigan barely edged 9-7. So this shapes up as,"an interesting ;: game, especially if the weatherman is kind to the locals, which h.e was not last week. "NEWMAN has probably the finest quarterback I've seen play this year," Coach Cooper reported Monday. His name is Rich Wolf and judging from some of his feats against Hoover last week, Cooper is not overestimating his ability. He scored three touchdowns himself on runs of 44, 61 and 80 yards and threw for another., For the night, Wolf picked up 219 yards in 10 carries and passed for 114 more. That's not bad in any league. The Gehlen game was a breeze especially in the first half when the weather was decent. It began raining with just a couple of minutes left in the first half and the second half was played in constant rain. THURSDAY, NOV. 2, 1967 Algona (Iowa) Advance—5 Gehlen got its best first half drive going to the Bear 27 before it was halted and then Garrigan covered 72 yards in seven plays to end the night's scoring. Big plays were dashes of 31 yards by Schiltz and 28 by Muller with Muller going the final four and Schiltz picking up the point. THE RAINS were coming full force by this time and fans began leaving by the dozens. At thr 'inish, only a hardy handful were left. Garrigan stopped Gehlen on its (five yard line in the third period and they got to the 19 again later but a Richter tackle on fourth down kept the goose-r-.'-- in back of Gehlen's name this night. Although he used the first string on offense in the second half, Cooper used reserves on offense the entire last 24 minutes and lots of dads got to see their sons play some football (it was Dad's Night) although the playing condltlolhTt were" ; not of the best. Schiltz and Muller gained almost 1^' , .,rds for the night, entirely in the first half. Garrigan threw only five passes and didn't complete a one but their ground game was working well, so it didn't really matter. Cooper was high on praise for Jerry Plathe for great work as blocker from his guard post. "He has done a great job for us in the last three games since moving him into the guard post from blocking back," Cooper exclaimed. He also had special words of praise for his two fine r.jnners, Muller and Schiltz, and quarterback Froehlich. Eleven seniors, all pictured on today's sport page, will close out their Garrigan careers Saturday. THE BEARS scored all five touchdowns in a span of just 18 minutes but it took them awhile to get going. After an exchange of fumbles, big Jack Muller bulled through the line and broke away from three tacklers to ramble 55 yards for Garrigan's first touchdown. After that they came often, Muller ran the point to •make it 7-0. The Bears got the ball four downs later after a low snap from center on a fourth down Gehlen kicking situation was recovered by Bill Richter. Mike Schiltz, who ran well again as he has all season, burst through for six, Muller bulled for nine and Schiltz got five more before Muller rammed it over from the two and Schiltz ran the point to make it 14-0 with two minutes left in the first quarter. The Bears took over on their 35 late in the quarter and in nine plays had TD No. 3. Schiltz and Muller gained most of the ground with quay* terback Tom Froehlich, the sophomore who has taken over the starting signal calling job, helping out. Schiltz went over from the nine but the point try failed. THE COUNT soared to 27-0 shortly after, set up by a fine punt return by Tom Black who got to the Gehlen 40. Schiltz went over from the 19 on a fancy run after he and Muller punched holes in the Gehlen line to get there. For the second time, Muller was stopped on the point try. * * * BULLDOGS CLOSE WITH CLEAR LAKE Algona's Bulldogs will close out what they hope to be their most successful season in five years and the second best in 20 years Friday night by entertaining Clear Lake high school. The Lions are at the bot- tarn of the North Central Conference with an 0-6 mark, They beat Forest City 27-7 to open their season and since then have lost six straight and have scored single touchdowns against Webster City, Hampton and Iowa Falls, A good effort for Algona should make victory a certainty but Coach Keith Christie has been keeping the pressure on all week for just such an effort. "A let-down now would spoil an outstanding record," he said Monday- A win will give Algona undisputed possession of second place and a 7-1 season. Recalling the 13-7 win over Hampton, Christie said that his club planned to give up the short passes but was still surprised that Hampton completed 22 passes. "They had some fine catches, I might add," he said. I'm only happy that w« i week to prepare for their 'sh«tgun' offenff," h» reported, "That thing would send you out of your mind if they sprfng it if i surprised The game will be the finale for 14 seniors, Garrigan Sophs win at Spencer Monday, 33-13 Garrigan high school closed out its sophomore football season with a 33-13 victory over Spencer's sophs Monday at Spencer. They met the freshmen team in an inter-squad game Wednesday. The Soph-JV team finished with four wins, three losses and one tie. They led 13-0 over Spencer at the half Monday. Denny Potthoff scored two touchdowns, one on a 45-yard runback of an intercepted pass and the other on a 30- yard pass play from Tom Froehlich. Pat Nugent plung- ,ed four yards for another .^touchdown and3 Phil^Richter^ added a fourth with an 11- yard run. Keith Frideres got the other Garrigan touchdown on a 40-yard punt return and also turned in a fine game as blocking back and linebacker on defense, according to Dick Walsh, who coached the Bear yearlings this season. Swea City edges Titonka Friday, 13-0 Swea City high school edged Titonka's winless Indians last Friday night, 13-0 in a State Line Conference game to solidify their position of third place in the loop with a 3-1 mark. Titonka is 0-5 in the loop. The Tojans led at the half on a touchdown by Mike Johnson and added the clincher in the second half when Thor Thoreson went over.

Algona Junior Varsity ends unbeaten 27-0 way patrol and sheriff's office last week. Heaviest damage was done to a truck owned by the Dix Bottling Co. of Estherville and driven by salesman Richard Holm, Estherville. He told Patrolman Charles Bird he was passing a farm tractor about 8 a.m. last Thursday at the south edge of Ledyard when he looked in the rear view mirror and noted his load had shifted. His wheel slipped off the road and the machine went into the ditch. The second accident occurred two miles west of Irvington about 12:45 p.m. last Thursday as Ronald Miller, driving a Colt Equipment truck of Morocro, Ind. was stopping at a stop sign onto highway 169. His rear wheels locked and the machine jackknifed into the ditch but there was only $95 damage to the truck. Luckily, neither of the drivers was injured. A third one-truck accident was reported to the sheriff's office this week. A truck driven by Wayne J. Rock, Swea City, struck loose gravel and went into the ditch and onto its top eight miles north and two miles west of Swea City on the State Line road. The accident occurred Saturday at about 3 p.m. Mr. Rock was not injured. The Algona fresh-soph football team finished its season unbeaten Monday night by trouncing Clear Lake 27-0 at Clear Lake. The club, coached by Don Camenisch and Lynn Kueck, finished with six wins and one tie.

The locals led 6-0 at the half Monday with a five-yard run by freshman Steve Fitzpatrick accounting for the only first half points. Algona took the second half kickoff and controlled the ball for eight minutes in marching to their second TD with Duans Hunt going over on a lllflMIIHHIMHHMMH short run. Steve Willrett ran the point and shortly after, ran 15 yards for the third marker. Don Armstrong made his first of two extra points, the second coming after Fitzpatrick jarred the ball loose on a tackle and scooped it up, running 30 yards for the final tally. Armstrong is also only a freshman. Robbie Claude and Barrel Miller did an outstanding job on defense for the Bullpups.
