AHS, GHS Both On Road Friday, E-Grove And Kuemper Are Foes New Pass Combo And Thefts Are Vital In Win One local high school will attempt to extend its winning streak to three and the other will try to start another winning skein in action Friday night. Garrigan's Golden Bears, winners over Ft. Dodge St. Edmond and Emmetsburg Catholic in their last two outings, will travel to Carroll and a meeting with always-tough Kuemper, and Algona High's Bulldogs will go to Eagle Grove for a North Central Conference gamt Friday night. So all area fans will have to travel to see their favorites in action this week. Coach Keith Christie's team went unbeaten through its first four games, but dropped a 27-6 decision to Webster City's rapid Lynx last Friday night to fall into a second place tie in the loop standings. Meanwhile, Coach Beanie Cooper's club, which dropped two of its first three contests, has now won a pair in a row and has a 3-2 season mark. The Bears put together an impressive second half to break a scoreless deadlock at halftime and roared to a 27-0 victory at Emmetsburg. Included in the vital statistics leading to the win were six pass interceptions, with a pair by Dave McCarthy leading to the final pair of scores in the fourth period. The locals also pounced on the only fumble of the game, held the losers to 51 yards on Uie ground and 22 yards passing as the defense actually turned Die tide in this one. Offensively, Mike Schiltz, Cooper's Water Bug, zipped for 120 yards and sophomore Tom Froehlich hit 12 of the 19 passes he attempted as the Bears totaled 278 yards. It appears that Froehlich could be the key to the remainder of the season. He's young —and very slightly built — in fact skinny, but he does ("quite wonderful things when he fires the pigskin. And another secret weapon, not turned loose before, was big Jack Muller, who for the past season and a half has been a ramrod fullback. Against Catholic, Jack was a pass receiver, coming up with seven catches and 100 yards. John Winkel caught a pair, good for only 20 yards, but both were touchdowns — and he got another TD when he intercepted a pass and skipped 40 yards to the end zone. And the win Friday night was accomplished despite real odds against it — coming in the form of red flags and penalties. Garrigan had three touchdowns called back as infractions were whistled all over the place. This newfound balance between running and passing could make the Bears real tough from here on out. Meanwhile, Algona's dreams *-: * SPORTS 4-Algona, (la.) Upper Dei Moirm Thursday, Oct. 19, 1967 AHS Junior Varsity In 6-0 Win, Webster City When you beat Webster City, anywhere, with any team, it's a pleasant feeling. Algona High's junior varsity team did it Monday night, in a football game between J-V teams played at Webster City. And they did it with only freshmen and sophomores playing. The score was 6 to 0. For the Algona J-V's it makes of a possible unbeaten season (or at least a victory over Webster City) went down the drain when the racehorse Lynx came up with some spectacular running and pass catching to break the game wide open during the last half. The visitors led only 7-0 at the intermission - and with the Lynx on top, 13-6, in the third quarter, Algona was still in the thick of the battle. A 31- yard run and a fine catch of a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter upped the final margin to 21 points. Christie's band of hustlers gave it all they had - as they have all season— and must continue to do so if more wins are to be tacked on the current 4-1 mark. It's possible, if the club can come back, for the locals to finish 7-1, but even with that mark, only a defeat of the Lynx by one of its remaining loop foes can give the 'Dogs a share of the crown. Eagle Grove-Algona battles are always rugged — and play is often heated.^ It will be up to the defense to keep up its good work, generally, and the offense, featuring pretty fair balance, with Randy Riedinger, Mike Betts and Larry Taylor carrying the mail and Smokey Barr tossing the passes, to keep racking up yards if the locals are to come home with a win. The punting of Tim Black was instrumental several times in the Webster City fray as his kicks went deep into Lynx territory, making the visitors go a long way for scores. Other games of interest in this area Friday include Titonka at Lincoln-Central; Marathon at West Bend; and Sentral at Woden- Crystal Lake. The unbeaten Satellites will attempt to remain that way in the latter game. They are currently leading the State Line Conference by a half-game margin with a 4-0 loop mark and 5-0 season record. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST By OL' MAN MOSE Well all of our Grid Guessers are entitled to crying towels after last Saturday's football results. Upsets, upsets, upsets. . . .and some of our best guessers did well to have 10 to 14 correct out of the 22. However, there were a few lucky ones-we say lucky ones because you had to have a little luck to come up with even 16 correct, which is what five of our entries did. First place went to John Hood of Algona, with 16 right and a high game total score of 59. The high game total was 60, Cornell 47 Princeton 13. Naturally, John missed the Notre Dame game] Running a close second was Dave Everds of Allison, Iowa, 16 right and a high game pick of 62 points. In third place was Merrill Walker of Algona with 16 right and a high game total pick of 56. Extra special Honorable Mention goes to Mrs. Charles Hoffmann of Algona with 16 right and a high game of 65, and Billy McAllister of Manly, Iowa, 16 right and a high game of 49. There were quite a few with 15 correct, including John Chris- chilles, Frances Moe, Mrs. John Hanselman, Ken Johnson, Mrs. Merrill Walker, and Dave Shumway, all of Algona; Michael Fraser, Burt; Mrs. George Baumann, Lakota; Louis Reimers, South Milwaukee, Wise. The vast majority of guessers were in the 12,13 and 14 right grouping, and one entry from Titonka sent in the games from the previous week, Oct. 7, just a trifle late. But shed a tear for Dale Fraser of Burt, who out of 22 games came up with four correct, and wins the Mourner's Bench spot for the week. It wasn't hard to do, last Saturday, Dale. This week's games were in the Tuesday paper, and they'll prove just as hard as last week. the season record 4-0-1. They were tied at Clarion in a scoreless contest. Only six points have been tallied against them this fall. They host the Eagle Grove J-V next Monday night in Algona. It was pretty much a power contest at Webster City Monday evening. Neither team resorted much to the air. While Algona held an edge during the first half, moving once to within the Webster City 10, there was no scoring. An offside penalty against Algona stopped what might have been a Bullpup touchdown. But the second half saw the tide turn for Algona. With hard running by the Algona backfleld, Steve Fitzpatrick, Duane Hunt, Steve Willrett, the battering finally moved to the Lynx goal line where Fitzpatrick went over in a tremendous drive. Hunt also went over for the extra point, but another penalty nullified it, and then a kick went wide. As a matter of fact, most of the referee calls were aginst Algona. Webster City received only two during the game. With the score 6-0 in favor of Algona, Webster City made its most serious attack of the game. A series of first downs took the ball into Algona territory, but a pass interception by Jack Waller stopped that drive, and \ the excellent punting of Steve ''. Willrett kept the Lynx in a hole after that. Too much cannot be said about the oustanding line play of the Bullpups. Robbie Claude, Tom Elbert, Mark Olson, Steve Mueller, Ron Matz, Tom Laing and Steve Armstrong did excellent defensive work all night, with some good line-backing as well from others. In the final minutes, Webster City was pushed back toward its own goal in futile passing efforts, and a poor Lynx punt gave the ball to Algona on the Webster City 25. The clock ran out shortly afterward. Algona Gridder Scores TD For College Victory victory of the season. He is a senior at Buena Vista and is majoring in business administration. Little Bears Play 14-14 Tie Here Monday Garrigan High School's sophomores posted a come-from-behind 14-14 tie with Ft. Dodge High's sophomores here Monday. The Little Bears trailed the visitors, 14-7, at halftime. Tom Froehlich went a yard and Pat Nugent slammed six yards for Garrigan's TDs, while Phil Richter added one point after on a sweep and Denny Potthoff the other on a pass. Garrigan's junior varsity is slated to travel to Thompson for a game today (Thursday). pniiiiiiiiiniiiiniiiHiiinniiiiiiiiiiiiuniiiiitiiinuiiiiitiiii 'PORTLAND By Mrs. Victor Fitch BRIAN ATHERTON Brian Atherton, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.
