Garrigan Drops Decision To Rugged O'Gorman 31-0 Tuesday, Oct. 3, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper D«« Moines—11 Strong S.D. Club Led At The Half 13-0 Garrigan Field has had a number of fine football teams tear up its turf since the high school nearby first opened its doors — but none has ever more completely subdued the Golden Bears than the O'Gorman Knights of Sioux Falls did Saturday night. The Bears managed only 43 yards rushing and passing while going down to a 31-0 defeat which left their season record at 1-2. Coach Beanie Cooper's club hustled— and no one could detect any sign of giving up - but the odds, which included good average size, speed and agility, were too great, and after a scoreless first quarter, the visitors won going away. Midway through the first stanza, the Knights had a march going, but Dave McCarthy, who was busy all night for the locals, pounced on a fumble to halt the threat. A few minutes later, McCarthy intercepted a pass to chop the quick visitors off at the Garrigan 17. Three plays later, however, Pat Baker of O'Gorman intercepted a Tom Black pass and the Knights were back in business on the Garrigan 23. This time, the Knights wouldn't be denied- and scored on the second play of the second quarter as Dean Thill went the final two yards. The point after was a failure. A 21-yard return of a good punt by John Mertz set up O*Gorman's next tally midway through the second round. It took nine plays to go 39 yards, with Duane Nelson banging home from the two. This time, Neil Stamp kicked the extra point, so it was 13-0 at the half. The count went to 19-0 when O'Gorman marched 63 yards after receiving the second half kickoff. Blasts of three to 10 yards were included in the journey to the end zone, with Thill going in from the three. ©•Gorman's advance to the Garrigan nine moments later was thwarted by the Bears' defense, so the next march to points didn't get underway until the final play of the third quarter. A 15-yard penalty got it started and the Knights covered 51 yards in nine plays to make it 25-0, with Mike Pritchard gunning the final 12. The last points went on the board midway through the final stanza on a 23-yard pass from Tim Barnett to Steve Willis, who made a shoestring nab and shot into the end zone. The ferocious O'Gorman defense held the locals to 27 yards net on the ground and 16 yards through the air. Big Jack Muller, who slammed for 279 yards in Garrigan's first two contests, wound up with 32 - and Tom Black's two completions in 12 attempts, both to Mike Schiltz, accounted for the passing yardage. Coach Cooper said several days preceding the contest — "This could be the finest team we'll face this season," He was so right. Every fan in the stands was impressed with the rugged play of the Knights, who featured four to six man pursuit on wide plays which resulted in hardly any yardage there all night. The winners used no less than nine running backs, with Max Sinclair leading the way with 109 yards on the ground. Thill hit four of seven passes for 64 yards as the Knights used the pass only when absolutely necessary, then with great success. Garrigan's Homecoming is this Saturday night and the Bears will host Ft. Dodge St. Edmond, 1913 winner over Mason City New- man in a thriller Friday night.
