GARRIGAN IN LOP-SIDED WIN Bears Pummel Clay-Central Here, 44-7 Garrigan's Golden Bears, dumped in their season opener by a late touchdown, scored early and often on the way to an easy 44-7 victory over Clay-Central of Royal before a large crowd here Saturday night. Balance, lacking in the first outing, resulted in the lopsided contest, with the inside running of Jack Muller and John Mertz, the outside slants and pass receiving of Mike Schiltz and running and passing of Tom Black making the task a simple one. The game was 15 seconds old when the first points went on the board. John Winkel grabbed the opening kickoff on the Garrigan 10, handed off to Black and carried out a fine fake that completely fooled the visitors as Black skittered down the opposite sideline to score. Muller Wasted for the extra point. A little more than two minutes later, the Bears got TD number two. This one was set up by a pass interception by Tom Froehlich, who nabbed the ball on the C-C 33 yard line. Muller belted for five, then slammed for 24 more before Schiltz went the last four. Muller again added the extra point, knocking down everyone in his way, making it 14-0. Clay-Central opened a threat near the end of the quarter as Tim CCClair passed for 13, then ran twice for 28 and the Co- manches had the ball on Garrigan's 31 when the buzzer sounded. At this point, surprisingly the Bears were down in first downs 5-2 and total yardage 77-49, but had a 14-0 lead. The C-C threat petered out at the start of the second stanza— and the Bears moved quickly to paydirt, going 69 yards in 13 plays. Muller, Black, Schiltz and Mertz all had a hand in the drive, with Schiltz scoring from the eight. Muller again smashed for the extra point to make it 21-0. Garrigan's final points in the first half came as the result of a pair of safeties. Five burly Bears nabbed CCClair in the end zone for the first one and Muller smeared Rick Klinker for the second, so it was 25-0 at the intermission. An" interception by Muller (he was everywhere), which gave the locals the ball on the C-C 38 yard line set up another score right after the third quarter got underway. Five plays later, the Bears were on the 29. Black ran a keeper to perfection and went all the way to a TD. This time, a placekick attempt by Mertz failed, so it was 31-0. A 6-play 58 yard march made it 38-0 early in the final period. Muller, Mertz and Schiltz took turns, with the latter going the last eight. He also added the extra point on a sweep. Jim Boudewyns blocked a C-C punt about midway through the quarter and Garrigan quickly went 29 yards for its final TD. Mertz, who carried the ball most of the way, scored from the one, then missed the extra point, so it was 44-0, Soon after Mertz tried and missed a field goal late in the S-City Trojans Post 19-7 Victory The Swea City Trojans posted their first win of the campaign against one loss, a 19-7 decision over Woden-Crystal Lake Friday night.
