(UDM Newsfoto) Football Fare: AHS And GHS Both At Home This Weekend Clarion And Clay-Central Come To Town Both local high school football teams will be at home this weekend — and with the Algona Bulldogs hosting Clarion Friday night and Garrigan High at home to Clay-Central of Royal the following evening, area fans will be treated to a twin bill. The public school opened its 1967 season successfully last Friday with a resounding 39-7 victory over Emmetsburg here, while the Golden Bears dropped a cozy 25-20 contest to a good Estherville club there the same night. Each of the teams showed plenty of promise in the openers. And with the season still young, much more in the way of surprises can be expected from the clubs of Coach Keith Christie and Coach Beanie Cooper. The Bulldogs will tangle with Clarion during the annual Homecoming Friday, with game time set for 7:45 p. m. Kick-off at Garrigan Field the next night will be at 8 p. m. Clarion lost to Belmond, 7-6, in its season-opener last Friday night - but everyone loses to Belmond, so the one-point defeat should indicate the Cowboys are not too bad. There are 13 lettermen on the Clarion roster, including Mark Ketchum, Jeff Judson, Jerry Lockwood, Larry Lewellyn, Stan Mack, Ray McCormick, David McCullough, Duane Odland, Norman Thomas and Loren Simpson, linemen; and Ronnie Martin, Ken Bernhardt and Joe Fletcher, backs. All are seniors, except Simpson, Bernhardt and Fletcher. Others who should see action include Mark Spellmeyer, end, and John Flack, Mike Roberts and Dave Clark, backs. • The Cowboys were 3-2-3 overall and 3-1-3 in the loop last fall. ''Against this formidable opponent, Christie will unleash what he'hopes will be as well-rounded offensive and defensive displays burg outing. , The running attack racked up 278 yards, with senior Rich Black, halfback, rolling up 206 in 21 tries, while the passing accounted for a pair of TDs. And the defense was stringent, also, when it had to be. ^Preceding the game, Connie Darby shire, last year's Homecoming Queen, will crown Donna Fisher, Debbie Kelley, Marne Parrott or Niki Wegner-as the 1067 Queen. Not too much is known about the Clay-Central club-however, Coach Cooper has been working his club all week on departments where he felt improvement is needed. One such department is NOT the running of big Jack Muller, who proved in the Estherville fray that (barring injury) he will be one of the top crunchers in the entire state. Muller, who broke in as a fullback a year ago by picking up something more than 1,100 yards in eight games, got off to a real gixxi start Friday, grinding out 148 in 33 carries against the Mid- ge.ts - and he scored all of the Garrigan points, too. He was GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OL' MAN MOSE Welcome, Grid Guessers, to the 1967 season I 01' Man Mose admits that some of our games the first week were really puzzlers, and the over-all guessing wasn't exactly earth shaking, yet we did have a few entries that did real well, considering .... First place went to Dave Shumway of Algona, with 15 right out of the 22, and a high game total pick of 71 points. The actual high total was 74, the NO. Dakota State (41), Omaha (33) contest. Second place went to Eugene Dahlhauser, West Bend, with 15 right and a high game total score of 60; third place went to Phil Meyer of Fenton, with 15 right and a high game of 57. .-.-• This week's Honorable Mention, with 14 right, included the following entries, not necessarily in order of standings: Mary flla Kisch, Mrs. Charles Hoffman, Dave Hanselman, Brett Bartlett, Wayne Christiansen, all of Algona; Ronald Besch, Whittemore; Dave Everds, Allison, la.; Barbara Baumann, Lakota; John Hamilton, Sioux City; Monte Pearson, Clarence, la.; and Barb Seller, Storm Lake. The crying towel to W. W. Gillespie of Algona, who picked only six right out of 22, and sits alone on our Mourner's Bench, but if we know him from years past, he will not be there permanently. There was another list of 22 games in Tuesday's paper, and the teams you probably know a lot better. Good luck. P.S. Be sure and fill in the high game total you select; if you fail to fill in this total, you are disqualified. just great- and got good support from little Mike Schiltz, termed the "waterbug" by Coach Cooper. The Bears' passing game will have to improve, as the only attempt Friday failed. And the team showed great promise on defense - giving indication of the typically-Garrigan hard-nosed variety that everyone has become used to. Lincoln-Central will be at Sentral and Titonka at Thompson in other area games Friday. Yessir, there will be plenty in the way of football activity in the area this weekend. Lakofa And Ringsted To .. Lakota edged Rake 5-4 and Ringsted downed Ledyard 5-3 Monday to advance to the finals of the sectional baseball tournament. The championship game was slated for 3:30 p. m. Wednesday. Lakota outhit Rake 3-2 and both teams committed three errors. All hits in the game were singles. Terry Krominga struck out 13 and walked seven in picking up the win for Lakota. Paul Johnson was tagged with the loss, striking out 11 and walking seven. Ringsted scored five runs on six hits and made two errors while Ledyard was limited to three runs and four hits. Ledyard was limited to three runs and four hits and had only one error. Dave Johnson was the winning pitcher for Ringsted, fanning five and walking six. Bill Johnson took the loss, striking out seven and walking five. Catcher Jim Hansen led the Ringsted hitting attack with a double. Bill Johnson collected a triple and catcher Ray Govern 'got a double for Ledyard. Bullpups Win 18-0 Tilt At Emmetsburg Algona's junior varsity football team, with nearly all freshmen and sophomores in the lineup, opened its season at Emmetsburg, Monday night, with an 18-0 win over Emraetsburg's J-V. Steve Willrett took a pass for the first score in the first quarter, and Steve Fitzpatrick plunged over from the five in the second quarter to put the Bullpups ahead 12-0 at the half. It was Willrett through the line again, in the third quarter, for a 15-yard gain and the third TD. Fmmetsburg's reserves threatened just once, but were held for aowns at the 20-yard line. Among the numerous squad members seeing action, some of the standout linemen were Darrell Miller, Steve Mueller, Tom Laing, Robbie Claude, Bruce Bennett and Rick Post to mention but a few. Jack Waller piloted the team from quarterback, fullbacks Steve Fitzpatrick and Duane Hunt did an excellent job of battering the Emmetsburg forward wall, and Mark Olson did good work on offense and defense. Nearly all squad members saw action, their first taste of 1967 competition. The next game is at Clarion, next Monday night.

It was the first start of the season for the locals. Tom Froehlich fired four touchdown passes to Denny Potthoff and Pat Nugent, who ran hard at fullback throughout the session, also scored twice. The youngsters passed twice for extra points and added the other two on smashes into the line. Singled out as the outstanding lineman for the locals was Jeff Schuller, a guard. Jim Edgington Wins Fairmont Stock Title Jim Edgington, Algona, capped a most successful season at Fairmont Speedway with a victory in the Speedways Championship feature race there Sunday night. His win in the finale came after a quick repair job on his car which sustained damage to the front axle when the vehicle struck the east wall during a heat race.
