Football Finale Time - Both Clubs Home 19(7 Season Wind-Dps Set This Weekend This is the weekend each year that all died-in-the-wool area high school football fans hate it's finale time. Both local high schools, Garrigan and Algona Public, wind up their seasons on consecutive nights — and each is already assured of a fine record during 1967. Coach Keith Christie's Algona Bulldogs, 6-1 so far and 5-1 in the North Central Conference, will be seeking their seventh win, which will give the club the finest mark public high has had since a 7-0-1 record in 1962. They will host Clear Lake in a loop fray - and the Lions will toss caution to. the wind Friday for they wijl be after their first conference' victory after six losses. ;' Meanwhile, Coach Beanie Cooper's Golden Bears will host Mason City Newman the following night- and the locals will be putting a 4-3 .record on the line against a team that has surprised a few schools this fall. Newman is nearing the end of its first season of football and has displayed plenty of ruggedness in games to date. The Bulldogs slipped past Hampton, 13-7, and Garrigan belted L'e^'ars Gehlen in outings last weeKend! A total of 14 Bulldogs will be making their last appearance, not only on home sod but also in Algona High uniforms, Friday night. They are seniors Roger Barr, Tim Clark, Rich Black, Jeff Gilmore, Randy Riedinger, Ian Davison, Tom Jones, Mike Dreyer, Steve Claude, Steve Voyles, Jim Utt, Don Hagen, Tom Parsons and Neal Smith - and when next season rolls around, each will be sorely missed. The cross-town Bears have 12 seniors who will take the fteid for the final time Saturday night. They are John Mertz, Bill Richter, Mike Schiltz, Dave McCarthy, Jerry Plathe, Kevin O'Brien, Dave Zeimet, Jim Lallier, Mike Elbert, Mike Welp, Jack Muller and Steve Erpelding, who has not seen action since sustaining a broken arm in the season opener at Estherville. Each of these lads will be tough to replace next year, also. Christie's team has a 155-60 bulge in points over seven opponents this season, with the 27 points scored by Webster City in the only loss accounting for almost half of the total given up. He's got a pair of lads, Riedinger and Mike Betts, who are leading the club .u scoring with six Apiece. Not far behind are''Larry Taylor with four TDs and Barr with three. Tim Black, the team's kicker, has a touchdown and 11 points after this, ! season, while Greg Alleif and Rich Black have each scored a pair of six-pointers. Riedinger is the team's leading rusher, but he gets good help from Betts, Taylor and Rich Black (who was out four games with a back injury). That quartet teamed to carve 308 yards out of Hampton Friday Cooper's Bears hold the upper hand, 133-77, over seven opponents in scoring this season - and Muller, who is the greatest fullback Garrigan has ever had, leads the scoring with seven TDs and eight points after for 50 points. Mike Schiltz, the Water Bug, has counted six touchdowns and four points after for 40 points. John Winkel has added three TDs, Tom Black a pair of TDs and a point after and Mertz one touohdown to the total, which also includes a trio of safeties racked up by the defense. Muller has ripped for 729 yards in 153 carries for a 4.8 average so far. Schiltz has 478 yards in 95 tries for a five yard average On the other end of the passing, Schiltz has captured 12 for 108 yards, Muller 10 for 129 yards and Winkel seven for 66 yards this season. Both local clubs have featured hard-nosed football this season- and their large followings of fans have delighted at their play. The defenses feature not only rugged tackling, but also alertness that has resulted in a number of pass inte reflations that have chopped the opposition down many times. So if you like good high school football, you'll have a chance to watch .both local squads in action this (the final) week - Clear Lake at AHS Friday at 7:45 and Newman at GHS Saturday at 8 p. m. GRID GUESSERS CONTEST BY OL' MAN MOSE A young lady, Janet Erpelding of R.R. #2, Algona, took first place honors in last Saturday's contest. Her mistakes were only Colorado, Cornell and Houston. And her high game total selection was 69. The high game total was 63- Iowa vs. Purdue. Close behind, in second place, also with 19 correct, was Robert McAllister of Algona. But he had a high game total of 54. Third place went to Frances Moe, Algona, with 18 correct and a high game total of 60, which won her the place. Dave Shumway also had 18 correct, but had a high game total of 58. Honorable Mention with 17 correct went to the following entries, not necessarily in the order named, however: Louis W. Reimers, So. Milwaukee, Wise.; Arnold Gray, Bill Prochaska, Buffalo Center; John Hood, Ken.Johnson, W. W. Gillespie, Roger Long and Dave Hanselman, allot Algona; Larry Sorensen, Fenton; Dean Willrett, No. Mankato, Minn.; Paul Vickerman, Canton, S. D.; and Judy Everds, Allison, la. We would like to caution, again, that entries must be postmarked by noon, Saturday, to be eligible. Thus far we have no winners coming in with a late postmark, but it could happen and we don't want anyone disappointed because of this one rule. Mourner's Bench for the week will be shared by Sara Chrischilles and Pat Chrischilles, each with 10 picks correct out of 22. And in the UDM contest for our staff only, Don Smith won a three-way tie with his exact 63 for high game total. Algona J-V's End Season, 27-0; Remain Undefeated An explosive third quarter, and two timely fumbles by the opposition, powered the Algona High Junior Varsity to a 27-0 victory- over Clear Lake, there, Monday night. Only the Algona freshman-sophomores participated. It left the local J-V's with a record of 6 wins, no losses, and one tie. On returning to Algona, it also meant shower baths for Coaches Don Camenisch and Lynn Kueck. Camenisch was overhauled after a two-block run by members of his team and given the shower treatment. And, after a 6-0-1 season, a little water never hurt anybody. Algona's superiority over the Young Lions was evident in the first half, but the Bullpups did not jell, and left the field with a 6-0 lead, a result of Steve Fitzpatrick's barrelling over for the single tally. Fitzpatrick lost no momentum in the second half, but the rest of the team also got into the act. Algona took the kickoff and marched right down the field, mostly on power football with Quartertack Jack Waller directing traffic. Duane Hunt went over and Steve Willrett added the extra point to make it 13-0. A few plays after the next kickoff, Simpson recovered a Clear Lake fumble on the Lion 40, and again Algona rolled goal- ward with Willrett going over for this TD, and Steve Armstrong adding the extra point, to make it 20-0. Early in the fourth quarter, it was Steve Fitzpatrick who, ripping through the Lion's line, picked up a loose ball in the backfield and out-distanced several Clear Lake backs to ramble in for another TD. He also added the extra point, making it 27-0. Fitz doesn't look like a sprinter, but nobody caught him. Maylxj they knew Itetter. Thursday, Nov. 2, 1967 Algona (la.) Upptf D«t MeinM-S Clear Lake made two late drives, but each bogged down at the Algona 25. In fact, that was as close as the losers came all evening. With a record of 118 points scored and only 13 tallied by their opponents, it is obvious that there has been very good defensive work from the squad, and mention should be made of a few, led by defensive leader Robbie Claude, who has been a stand-out all year. Other defensive stand-outs have been Fitzpatrick, Steve Mueller, a most capable center, Darrell Miller, Ron Matz, Les and Dave Simpson, Tom Elliert, Duane Hunt and Mark Olson, to mention only a few, and all sophomores. And a number of soph backs did good work all season. The victories have l*en team victories, a good way to have it. The freshmen unit also shows good potential, and finished the carue aijainst Clear Lake Monday night. The season's record: AHS J-V 18, Emmetsburg 0. AHS J-V 0, Clarion 0. AHS J-V 14, Twin Rivers 6. AHS J-V 19, Humboldt 0. AHS J-V 6, Webster City 0. AHS J-V 34, Eagle Grove 0. AHS J-V 27, Clear Lake 0.
