Friars Notch First Win; Galesburg Loses Corpus Christi Defeats Rough Riders, 20-0 The Corpus Christ! Friars chalked up their first victory of the 1953 grid campaign last night at Aledo as they dumped the Roosevelt Military Academy, 20 to 0, scoring all their points in the second half. In falling to the local Irish it marked the third .straight time the Rough Riders have been on the losing end of a 20 to 0 score. With the Friars winning it also marked the first time this season that a Galesburg Varsity team has come out on top. Coach Bob Drolel's charges had a hard time getting started in the first half and most of the play was around the mid-field stripe. The one exception, however, was when they drove from their own 39 to the R.M.A.'s 11 in the second quarter but the Cadets stiffened their defense. The Friars scored their first touchdown in the third period when Jack Hennenfent scored from the R.M.A. 20 after a sustained drive. Corpus Christi counted again in the third stanza and this time a pass interception by Tony Rodich paved the way. Hennenfent scored again, this time from the visitors' 24 yard marker. The locals drove all the way to the R.M.A. four in the final peri od but lost the ball on downs. However, a blocked punt set things up as Rodich hit pay dirt from the R.M.A. seven. The Irish were driving toward another TD and had penetrated deep into the home team's territory when the gun sounded ending the ball game. Corpus Christi showed considerable defensive improvement last night, not only holding the Cadets scoreless but also limiting them to only one first down. The Friars picked up eight themselves. Bob Drolet's crew will hit the road again next week when they tangle with the Gladstone-Oquaw ka Blackhawks.

The two teams had battled for three scoreless quarters before the host school finally got rolling in the opening Little Six contest for both teams. A pass interception set up the first Roseville touchdowns. The Panthers gained control of the ball on their own 25, marching to the Aledo 28. Ervin Sprout finished the job for the winners, dashing 28 yards for the score. The Panthers then added another touchdown for safety. They took control of the ball on the Aledo 40 and marched to the touchdown. Sprout got this one also, crashing over from the four yard line. Phil Hill booted the extra point to end the evening's scoring. Roseville also had the statistical edge, getting 17 first downs to Aledo's 8. With all of the Little Six teams opening their league play last night, Roseville, Abingdon and OPENING PLAY—John McConnell returns the opening kickoff tor seven yards in last night's ROVA-AIexis game.

The game was the Little Six opener for both schools. Kadi team scored a quick first quarter touchdown, and ROVA pushed over the winning one in the second period. The second half was a punting duel much of the time with a penalty and a fumble halting two of the Tigers attempts at. the Alexis goal. ! .Jim Scott and Swanson paced the JiOVA Tigers' attack, Scott scoring the first touchdown on a six yard drive. A 180 pound half- bark, he showed a lot of power and on his last trip with the ball, late in the fourth quarter, five Alexis lacklers were-hanging onto him liefore he was downed. .John Elder did most of the ball carrying for Alexis, and also intercepted ;i ROVA pass to stop momentarily a second quarter Tiger toy hdov. n. The Tigers needed just four pl.v.s from scrimmage to get their firs* seore. They took over on then ov. n 35 after an Alexis punt very early in the game. On the first play Scott went 18 yards to the Alexis 47. Swanson grabbed the hall on the next play, driving off right tackle and cutting to the outride. He reached the 11 yard line before being hauled down. A penalty moved the ball to the six, and Scott plowed between guard and tackle for the score. Swanson ran the extra point. Laffcrty, Axcell and Elder led an Alexis march following the kickoff which carried from their own 34 to the ROVA 21. Larry Anderson circled wide around left end on a statue-of-liberty type play to score the touchdown, most of the KOVA team and spectators being faked out by the play. Axcell carried the extra point across to tie the game, 7-7. ROVA recovered a fumble to start things rolling for the game winning touchdown. Swanson and Scott did the work in bringing the ball to the Cardinals' 14 yard line.

It was the third defeat in as many outings for Galesburg and the first win of the season in three tries for the Panthers. Next Friday the Streaks are host to East Peoria in an Illini loop affair. East Moline picked up 18 first downs in the game to 10 for the Silver and Gold. In rushing the Panthers ground out 247 yards, while Galesburg had a minus 4!) for the night. The Streaks, however, used a passing attack to greater advantage by picking up 149 yards via the air lanes. Galesburg completed 12 out of 16 passes attempted. Carroll Fay was razor sharp on his passes as he found his target with almost uncanny accuracy. Larry Stewart and Gary Harwood were on the receiving end of the throws in most cases. Stewart turned in a terrific ball game on both offense and defense. The big highlight of the evening as far as Galesburg was concerned was a 91-yard punt return in first quarter for a touchdown by Carroll Fay. Earl Wilson threw the key block to send the last East Moline defender sprawling and let Fay cross into paydirt unmolested. The other Galesburg TD's were tallied by Gary Harwood on a fourth period pass from Fay. Larry Stewart took a 20-yard toss in the first quarter for the touchdown that sent Galesburg into the lead, 6-0. Frank Dunlop, who was a center on the East Moline football team last year before Coach Wrenn moved him into the backfield, was the individual star of the night as he scored four of the five Panther touchdowns. The first quarter was full of action as a total of four touchdowns were scored — two by each team.

When Carl Erskine struck out 14 Yankees in achieving his brilliant 3-2 victory Friday he broke a record which had stood for 24 years and set a new standard which might well exist much long er than that. The four-time world champions hit the youthful Brook lyn ace for six singles. Roy Campartella, whose right hand still throbbed painfully from the blow it received in the opening game from an Allie Reynolds fast ball, wrapped the contest up neatly when he leaned into Vic Raschi's first pitch in the eighth inning and propelled it far up into the left field seats. It was a great comeback for both of them.

Carroll Fay then took the kickoff and behind some really fine blocking raced 91 yards to score and send Galesburg out in front, 12-6. However, the lead didn't last long as the Panthers, with Dunlop leading the way, came back to tie it up and then take a 13-12 lead on a conversion. East Moline picked up another TD in the second frame to lead, 20-12 at halftime. Neither team could score in the third frame, but in the fourth quarter East Moline picked up 12 markers and Galesburg 6. The Panthers were in front, 32-12 in the dying moments of the game when Carroll Fay heaved an eight-yard pass to Gary Harwood for a TD.

ERSKINE GETS A LIFT—Dodgers pitcher Carl Erskine waves his hat in the dressing room as he's lifted off his feet by Roy Campanella (left) and Manager Chuck Dressen. Carl set a World Series strikeout record in striking out 14 Yankees in the Dodgers 3 to 2 win (Oct. 2). Roy's home run won the game for the Brooks. death on lefthanders in their own park all season. Still, Loes lacks considerable of being an Erskine, as who doesn't, ing on his every pitch, pulling for him to achieve his goal. Grim Vic Raschi didn't lack a whole lot of matching Erskine, except in the matter of strikeouts. The veteran righthander was rough all the way, and except for Jackie Robinson the Dodgers were kept ^ well in line until Campanula's big! Boock clout. There was much grumbling among the Brooklyn supporters, the tenor of their remarks being that the Yankees were plain lucky stiffs and that it didn't seem to be much use - trying to beat them. They didn't feel any better when Hodges grounded out with the score tied, 2-2, to start the eighth and Campanella came waddling out. After all, the wounded catcher hadn't knocked a ball out of the : infield in almost two full games. Then it happened, and you just should have watched. Erskine pitch that last inning out of appreciation. When the last batter, Collins, rolled a ball toward the mound, the handsome kid grabbed it and didn't want to let go even Devils took over after that and went on to win, 25 to 7. C.
