Golden Bears Win Everything But Game At Kuemper, 7-0 'Best Single Game Effort' Says Coach Tuesday, Oct. 24, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moine*-13 Garrigan's Golden Bear football team dropped a frustrating 7-0 decision to highly regarded Kuemper at Carroll Friday night, but the score couldn't have been more deceiving. Except for a costly punt that netted only two yards and two single running plays, Coach Beanie Cooper's fire-up crew completely dominated and overwhelmed the Kuemper Knights, an outfit that has posted victories over East Sioux City, Ft. Dodge High School and North Des Moines. Kuemper must have been a two or three touchdown favorite — especially when you consider that the Bears had two key starters out of action — halfback Mike Schiltz and tackle Luke Kollasch. However, the Bears weren't convinced of an underdog role and played what Coach Cooper described as "the best single game effort by a team in my entire coaching career!" This covers a lot of games, a lot of talent and a lot of effort. The Knights got their game- winning break on the last play of the first quarter. After three incomplete passes, Garrigan lined up to punt from their own 21-yard line on a fourth and 10 situation. The Kuemper line put on a furious charge and the Bear punter got off a head-high kick that traveled only 10 yards and was picked up by a Knight lineman, who returned it eight yards to the Garrigan 23. The Bear defense held for a short yardage on the following three plays, but Kuemper's star fullback, Dennis Bellinghausen picked up enough yardage on his fourth try to a first down on the Bear 13-yard line. Bellinghausen then carried twice more on the two single running plays that decided the score. He went off right tackle for 10 yards to a first down on the Garrigan 3 and smashed over the same hole for the final 3 yards and a touchdown. The PAT was good on a kick by Dan Schaefer and the scorekeepers could have gone to sleep for the evening. This was the only time throughout the game that the Garrigan defense allowed the Knights inside the Bear 35-yard line. In fact, Kuemper was only in Garrigan territory twice during the entire game. DIJEtJ, A 270 POI+JD r IS The final statistics - not the final score - give the true story of the Garrigan domination of play. The Bears captured 13 first downs, rushed for 166 yards, and passed for 84 yards— a total of 250 yards gained. "The Garrigan defense utilized maximum effort from every individual to hold Kuemper to only 81 total yards and five first downs. The Knights were hardly in the stadium in the second half, when they made one first down and only 29 yards — all on the ground. To say that it is hard to single out individuals in the superb defensive effort is trite but so very true. Time and again Kuemper's quarterback, Darrell Stalzer, was slammed down on the same end sweeps that aided the Knight victory at Garrigan a year ago. Garrigan coaches, Cooper and Steve McCall, installed new defensive lineups that checked the Kuemper attack. Co-captains, Dave McCarthy and Jack Muller, were outstanding. McCarthy crashed through the Knight line from his center linebacking position time and again to nail down big losses. Mike Welp, Muller and the Garrigan line contained the attack from every direction. The final score also overshadows a terrific performance by big Jack Muller from his fullback position. Jack put his 220 Ibs. to use on 32 carries repeatedly knocking an oncoming secondary defender backwards with jarring jams. He rushed for a total of 159 yards for a 4.9 average and caught three passes for 29 yards. Sophomore Pat Nugent added 24 tough yards in his varsity debut. Sophomore quarterback Tom Froehlich hit 10 of 21 passes for 84 yards for an indication of things to come in the next few years. Receivers Tom Black, John Winkel and Phil Ricliter gave the Knight secondary a tough time all night. Bears like Joe Detrick, Jim Boudewyns, Jerry Plathe and Kevin O'Brien turned in stellar performances in the futile cause. Garrigan's biggest scoring threats ended on the Kuemper 15 in the first quarter and the Knight's 13-yard line and 17- yard line in the fourth quarter. Once inside the Kuemper 20, the Knights' defense managed to dig in and hold the desperate Bears. Longest gainers for the Bears were three 10 and one 11-yard bursts by Muller and an 18- yard pass from Froehlich to Muller. There were mixed emotions after the game. The Bears had jelled for their best effort of the year, but were l«ateii by a team that was knocked all over the field. Game statistics: First downs Passes Yds. passing Passes int. by Yds. int. ret.
