Hot Half Gives Garrigan High 33-0 Win Gehlen Falls To First Half Point Blast Garrigan's Golden Bears showed their dads and a group of hardy fans they are good mudders on the way to an easy 33-0 victory over LeMars Gehlen on a windy, rain-swept gridiron here Saturday night. The victory came during the annual Dad's Night game. Coach Beanie Cooper's club assured itself of at least a .500 season, gaining its fourth win against three losses this year. One game remains — a Saturday night fray here with Mason City Newman, a team that has surprised most critics with a better than average record in its first season of play. It took the Bears slightly more than six minutes to get on the Scoreboard Saturday night, but from then on until the halftime intermission points came rapidly. In less than 18 minutes the Bears scored all their points, then Coach Cooper flooded the already-wet field with reserves during the final two quarters. The locals had a good drive going soon after recovering a fumble (with Mike Welp coming up with the pigskin) early in the first period, only to lose the ball the same way on the Gehlen 27. The defense gave up only two yards in three plays, so the visitors punted, with the ball rolling dead on the Garrigan 36. Jack MuJler belted the center for four yards, then Mike Schiltz netted five before Muller broke three tackles, got into the clear and raced 55 yards for TD number one. He slammed for the extra point to make it 7-0. 12-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Molnes Tuesday, Oct. 31, 1967 First downs Passes Yds. passing KO-Ave. Punts-Ave. Yds. kicks ret.

With the half about over, the locals managed to cover 73 yards in seven plays to make it 33-0. Schiltz skittered 30, then Muller 27 on the first two plays, then Schiltz lost a yard and a pass fell incomplete. The momentum was regained, however, as Muller slammed five, Schiltz eight and Muller the final four to the end zone. This time Schiltz added the extra point. fourth down, which was recovered by Bill Richter of the Bears on Gehlen's 27 set up the next six-pointer. Schiltz scooted six, then the LeMars club was penalized five to the 16. Muller bucked for nine, then Schiltz for five before Jack smashed in from the two. Schiltz ran the extra point and it was 14-0 with almost two minutes left in the quarter. That was long enough for Gehlen to receive a kickoff and punt on fourth down, with the locals getting the ball on their own 35. Schiltz skipped for six on the final play of the stanza. The eighth play of the second round brought TD number three, with Schiltz going in from the nine. He, Muller and Tom Froehlich gained the ground to that point. This time, Gehlen stopped Muller, so the extra point was " not good, but it was 20-0. A punt by Gehlen a couple of minutes later set the Bears off again. Tom Black nearly escaped everyone with the punt return, but was hauled down on the Gehlen 40. Schiltz went three, Muller 13, then five before Schiltz went the last 19 to paydirt. Muller's smash for the point after again fell short and it was 26-0. Gehlen marched to the Gar- Gehlen got its best chance to score early in the third round when a low snap on fourth down gave the visitors the ball on Garrigan's 23. The Jays got to the five, but wound up relinquishing the ball to the Bears on the six. The final serious scoring threat of the wet night came midway through the last period when the visitors got to Garrigan's 19, but thanks to a tackle by Bill Richter, who flipped a Gehlen ball carrier for a six- yard loss on fourth down, the shut-out was preserved. Welp, Dave McCarthy, Richter, Muller, Kevin O'Brien & Co. turned in a good defensive job, and the blocking of Jerry Plathe gave Muller and Schiltz a lot of help on offense. Muller and Schiltz didn't play on offense during the last half, but managed to pick up 157 and 130 yards, respectively, during the first half onslaught, averaging about nine yards per carry between them. The Bears didn't complete any passes, but they didn't need them, and only launched five all night. John Britton was Gehlen's top rusher with 110 yards in 23 carries quite a feat, because the visitors netted only 82 yards on the ground in the fray. Reding Bid Strong, I.S.U. Frosh Q.B. AMES, IOWA — Former Algona Garrigan football star Bill Reding is alternating with Obert Tisdale of Waterloo for the starting quarterback job on the Iowa State freshman team, which has a 1-0 record. The 6-3, 190-pounder, shown above with frosh coach, Arch Steel, performed well in the 40-7 win Oct. 20 over Missouri's frosh in Ames, as did Tisdale also. Although Tisdale started that game, Bill, the son of Frank Reding of LuVerne, scored two touchdowns, netted 11 yards rushing, and hit two of five passes for 20 yards. Heading into the next game, a Nov. 3 encounter at Nebraska, it's anybody's guess who will start of the two. Bill a football, basketball and track letterman in high school, was a second team all-state selection by the Iowa Daily Press Association in 1966 and fifth team all-state by the Des Moines Register the same year. The former football and basketball prep captain is majoring in journalism at ISU.
