Just prior to this scoring jaunt by Cook the Commandos had been knocking on pay-dirt door but Aledo, with the help of a five- yard penalty, held and took over on their own seven. It was at this point that Cook did his fancy work and the Commandos were relegated to the back seat until midway in the final period. The second Aledo TD was almost as explosive as the first when Jack Bonynge flipped a 59-yard aerial, early in the second stanza, to Jack Fisher. Leroy Gustafson, who was responsible for the first conversion point, again made the kick good and the Dragons went out in front, 14 to 0. An Abingdon fumble set up the third score when Aledo recovered on the Commandos 35. Jack Bonynge went off tackle from the one yard marker to climax the drive.

Nitea MONMOUTH —Monmouth High School had a successful Homecoming Friday as the Zipper football team downed Canton 25 to 0 last night. The Little Giants put up a game battle but were completely outclassed by a hard running Monmouth club with the Zipper line playing suberb ball of the game. However, the Zippers running game was clicking and there was little need to do. much passing. Canton kicked off and Monmouth marched straight down the lield. Marvin Olson and Dick jWood took turns lugging the bail In chalking up . their fifUi| and thev reached the one yard line when Wood fumbled with Reeve of Canton recovering. However the Little Giants got nowhere with the ball and were forced to kick While the Zippers failed to get any place, Bob McKee put Canton back in the hole with a good boot straight win of the season against no losses, Coach Stavie Stavenhagen's olub stayed on the ground most of the evening, attempting only eight passes. Only three were completed but two of them were responsible for the first score Chance Sanders Blackledge Melvin Hanley Driskali that went out on the Canton eight| Bro,heiton yard line. LaHarpe held a 14-12 lead going into the final quarter, due to Bricker's successful conversions after 20 and 90 yard touchdown runs by McKee and Reed LaHarpe threatened strongly in the final minutes, and Reed did crash over, but the TD was nulli fied by a penalty.

After picking up seven yards, Canton was thrown for a loss' back to their own 8 yard line by McKee who played an excellent defensive game. The Little Giants were forced to kick again and it was in the next series of plays that the Zippers made their first touchdown. Quarterback Jerry McBride completed two of his three passes of the evening, the first to McKee for 30 yards and a few plays later with the ball on the Canton 22 yard line, he tossed one to halfback Ivan Haase who went over for the first score of the game. McKee's kick was no good and the score was 6 to 0. Monmouth scored twice in the second quarter. The first was the result of a hard driving game with the entire Zipper backfield taking turns carrying the ball and Wood going over from the 2 yard line. Kick again was no good.
