FF Otters whip East Grand Forks 32-0 RyBRUCEBAKKE Journal Sports Editor A pair of mini-sized halfbacks, a strong passing attack and a stronger defensive unit may have turned the tide for Fergus Falls' 1974 football season. Friday night the Otters won their first game of the season, defeating East Grand Forks 320 in their Northwest Athletic Conference debut. Jan Kolle, who gained 61 yards in eight carries against Alexandria last Friday, logged 100 yards in 14 carries last night. Fergus! other mini-sized halfback Jeff Bogen rammed down the field for IX yards in 10 carries. Kollc is a 5-9, 160- pounder and Bogen is a Wi, 147- pound runner. "It's so much fun (o win I don't know why we don't win every week," said a pleased Otter football coach Don Stueve after Friday's victory. Mark Toso led the Otter attack at the quarterback slot. He carried the ball 14 times for 48 yards. He connected with end Dean Dolan six times for 74 yards and a 10-yard touchdown. The Otters offense controlled the tempo of the game, putting together GG offensive plays covering 369 yards. Fergus' defense put it all together last night holding East Grand Forks for 49 total offensive yards and zero first downs. Defensive halfback Dave Streif came up with two key pass interceptions, one of which was turned into a touchdown by Dean Dolan. Streif carried the other for 22 yards and six points. In the early part of the first quarter last night Fergus looked like they were running its "stumble-fumble-fall offensive". The Otters fumbled away the bull three times in the opening five minutes of the game. With 4:23 remaining in the first quarter, Fergus Falls controlled the ball on its own 25 yard line when Streif intercepted an Fast Grand Forks' pass. Seven plays after the interception, Toso rilled a 10-yard touchdown pass to Dolan. An earlier pass to Dolan set up this touchdown. The touchdown came with 1;17 left in ihc quarter, Toso ran in the conversion giving Fergus a 8-0 lead. After the f.'asl Grand Forks' kickoff Fergus scored again when Kolle ran in for six yards out. Unemen Mark Hanson and Mark Graf o|>cned the hole for Kolle's luudulown. This touchdown drive covered GO yards in 11 plays. With 4:14 left in the third quarter Slreif picked off his second pass of the night, but this time returning it for a 22- yard six pointer. In the fourth quarter Hrad .Johnson capped a 55-yard scoring drive by hitting paydirt from the one. .Next week the Oilers (rave) to Ciookston for its second straight Northwest Athletic Conference game.

(Journal photo by Bruce Bakke) 'Bad boy' Miller leads World Open By BOB GREEN AP Golf Writer PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) Johnny Miller, facing the possibility of $1,000 fine for failure "to play in a professional manner" two weeks ago, has the lead in the richest golf tournament of the year after perhaps Second half scoring keys Herman win Keglers' /Corner By CARL ROSE Since recent weather changes reminds us that summer is nearing an end, it is time to put away the golf clubs, fishing rods, and tennis rackets and to start thinking about the fall and winter ahead. Bowling is one activity that helps shorten the winter, provides helpful exercise, stimulates conservations, and brings people together. As usual, bowlers of all ages, sizes, and shapes will be hoping for and aiming for higher scores, setting new records, or rolling the "Bowler's Dream" — a perfect 300 game. Fergus Falls bowlers are no exception to this stereotype. In fact, they are a determined group of keglers whose past successes and accomplishments increases the probability of old records falling and new ones being established this season at Northern Aire Lanes. In reviewing past records of Fergus Falls bowling, several worthwhile and noteworthy accomplishments come to light. There have been two sanctioned "perfect" 300 games. LeRoy Peterson was the first to accomplish the feat in November, 1967, and Gene Donley duplicated it in May, 1971. Records from the old Fergus Falls Bowling Center show that the late Earl Campbell and H. L. Sandin both have rolled unsanctioned 300 games during open bowling. Several bowlers have been close to the "perfect game". Gary Froehlich rolled a 299 game in March, 1973. Earl Campbell also rolled an unsanctioned 299 in addition to his open 300 game. David Spies bowled a 298 game when he compiled his 774 series during the 196M9 season. Incidentally, this 774 stands as the record high for the local lanes. Jerry Pribbemow's 746 series rolled in 1966 is the second highest. Third high series belongs to Mel "Rollie" Wrahlstad with a 718 rolled in 1943. Rollie's series stood up as the highest on local lanes for over 23 years. Other near perfect sanctioned league games include a 297 rolled by Willard Erickson in 1946 and a 296 of Bernon Sutton in 1959. F.arl Michealson has a 299 game recorded during open bowling. The women too, have their moments of excitement, high scores, and enviable records. The high sanctioned league game is held by Gunnie Appelquist with a 268 rolled at the oldFergus Falls Bowling Center during the 1963-64 season. Prior to Gunnie's game, the high single game had been held by Jean Senson Butler with a 258. Maggie Soliah has since recorded the second highest single game for Fergus Falls women with a 281 during the 1973 City Tournament. High three game series for the women was bowled by- Sharon Odegard with a 554 during the 196*69 season. Carol Dowzak previously held the highest series record with her 652 effort in 1966. With these records to "gun at", one can bet that the local bowlers will have their sites aimed high in hopes of making 1974-75 a season full of new records.-These goals are best summed up in the Bowler's Prayer. "Dear Lord I have but one request and I shall not ask for mere That I. before I'm laid to rest might bowl a perfect score." The Herman football team came alive in the second half of their game, scoring two touchdowns in scoring a 13-0 win over Hancock Friday night at Herman. Both Herman's scores came on short-yardage bursts, the first a one-yard run by Mark Amundson, and the game winner on a two-yard scamper by Doug Berg. Hancock scored its lone touchdown late in the game on a one-yard run by Gary Schimgall, with Dan Payne running in the two-point conversion attempt. Herman's Doug Berg was the busiest rusher of the night, gaining 69 yards in 20 carries. Quarterback Brad Oachs, in addition to gaining 54 yards on 9 carries, also completed five passes, good for 63 yards. Hancock 0 C 0 8— 8 Herman 007 6—13 Herman — 1-yd. run by Amundson, PAT Oachs kick; 2 yd. run by Berg, PAT kick failed. Hancock — 1-yd. run by Schimgall, PAT Payne run. the most highly professional performance of the season. The slender blond, the sensation of the pro tour this year, birdied five of the first six holes he played Friday on the way to an eye-popping, eightunder-par 63—just one shot off the record on the famed No. 2 course at the Pinehurst Country Club. "I didn't expect too much when I started," Miller said. "I was just trying to make the cut. Hut I can't anticipate my low rounds. When I get it going, I like to keep it going. That's when I attack." Miller, already the winner of six tournaments and more than $256,000 this season, had a 13C total after two rounds of the $300,000 world open. That was six under par and one in front of veteran Frank Beard, who has t)cen in a deep, two-year slump. Beard had a 70 for 137. U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin and Australian David Graham were another stroke behind at 137. Irwin had another G9 and Graham birdied his last three holes for a 68. Jack Nicklaus survived an erratic putter and a poor start for a 71 and 139. Nicklaus three- putted three times and made double bogey on his first hole, but still was well placed just three shots out of the lead. He was tied at 139 with Bob Murphy, Gene Littler, Mike Hill, Lee Elder and Nate Starks. Hill had a 67, Littler 70, Elder and Starks 71 and Murphy, the first round leader, blew to a 74V,/ r ' ' ' IAIC Trevino dropped back with 74-141 and three newly installed Hall of Fame members dropped out—Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and 62-year-old Sam Snead failed to make the cut for the final two rounds. Palmer had 72-150, Snead 73-147 and Player, the British Open and Masters champion, ended Goal line stand hands Asltby victory Vikings vaM by Barnesville 700 ROUNDS A WEEK GREENPORT, N.Y. (AP) Island's End Golf and Country Club, 80 miles from the New York City line, is enjoying its busiest season in history. Golf pro Frank Zeray reports the Greenport course on Long Island's North Fork has been averaging 700 rounds a week. A number of women have been playing the well- manicured 6,708-yard course, many of them beginners who get a break because their red tees make the layout an enjoyable 5,101 yards. The most picturesque hole is the 16th, a par three that is reminiscent of Pebble Beach. The hole stretches over a gully, with Long Island Sound on the right. Ashby, led by a hero goal-line stand, held on to hand Underwood it's first loss of the season,12 to 8. Ashby's goal-line stand came with less than a minute to go in the game. Four times Underwood tried to penetrate and four times Ashby threw them back. On fourth down, an Ashby interception put the game away. Impressive in the triumph was freshman quarterback Steve Ellingson who completed seven of 13 passes, good for 143 yards plus the winning touchdown. Starring in defeat for Underwood was running back Rick Jacobson, who in addition to scoring his team's lone touchdown, rushed the ball 26 times for 131 yards. Underwood 0080—8 Ashby 660 0-12 Ashby — 5-yd. run by Evavold, PAT failed; 21-yd. pass from Ellingson to Belseth, PAT failed. Underwood — Jacobson 3-yd. run, PAT Jacobson run. Barnesville stung Pelican Rapids twice w ith long runs for touchdowns as they rolled over the Vikings 21-0 Friday night at Pelican Rapids. Barnesville completely dominated Pelican on the field, partly due to a defense which held the Vikings to less than one hundred yards total offense. Barnesville was led offensively by running back Larry Mclvers, who scored two touchdowns, one on a three- yard burst, and one a 55-yard scamper. Quarterback Collin Solum also scored a touchdown on a 55-yard run. Mike Ishaug caught the two- point pass from Solum on the conversion play. Barnesville 608 7—21 Pelican Rapids 0000—0 Barnesville — 3-yd. run by Mclvers, PAT failed; 65-yd. run by Solum, PAT pass Solum to Ishaug; 55-yd. run by Mclvers, Iverson PAT kick. his American season with 77151. Miller's round was another in his series of extremely low scores and came just a short time after he and former British Open champion Tom Weisr kopf had been assessed $1,000 fines by Tournament Players Division (TPD) Commissioner Deane Beman. The disciplinary action came after both Miller and Weiskopf made precipitious withdrawals from major tournaments. Weiskopf pulled out after 16 holes of the second round of the PGA National championship and Miller withdrew after 16 holes of the second round of the new TPD national championship. They were fined under a TPD regulation. Weiskopf withdrew after fiveputting a green, missing a couple of half-hearted backhand swipes at the ball. He has indicated he will pay his fine. Miller wasn't so sure. "I really don't think the fine is justified," he said. He said he would submit a written explanation of his withdrawal to the commissioner. FRL MORN.

Trettevik and Tungseth. both seniors, combined for an awesome 276 yards and four touchdowns in leading the Comets to their highest point total of the season. The game was virtually decided in the second quarter, as Hillcrest exploded for 26 points. After scoring a safety on a bad snap from center that traveled through the Climax cr.rl zone, the Comets went to work. First Mike Trettevik scored on an 18-yard run, also converting the two-point play, to make the score 10-0 in favor of the Comets. Mark Tungscth scored next on a four-yard burst, adding two more points on the con- version attempt. Junior quarterback Randy Tretlevik (.starting his first game of the season) scored on a one-yard run, followed by a pass from Mike Trettevik to end Ken Dalen for the two-point conversion. And Hillcrest went into halftime leading 26-0. The third quarter started out the same as the second, as Climax yielded yet another safety to the Comets. I^ter in the quarter, Comet fullback Herman Rea scored on a one- yard run, the conversion attempt failing, and Mike Trettevik added another touchdown, this one on a ^yard scamper. Again the conversion atlempt failed but the Comets had widened their lead to 40-0. Climax was saved the embarrassment of a shutout as senior running back Irving Rotvold scored on a five-yard run. But the Comets got that score back, as Tungseth added his second touchdown of the game, this one a 59-yard dash. He also kicked the extra point i the first in memory for a Hillcrest team), making the final score 47-6. Hillcrest was dominant in almost every department. On defense, the Comets limited the Vikings to less than 200 yards tot;il offense, giving up just six points. The Comets caused six turnovers, and scored two safeties. Head Coach Reno Strand pointed to strong defensive performances by Tungseth who led in tackles with 12, middle linebacker Pete liuggewhowas in on 11 tackles, anil Luther Stenberg who recovered two fumbles. The offense was equally a's effective. As Tungseth pointed out, "Statistics showed that everyone did a good job." Strand elaborated, saying, "The line opened big holes, and the (iownfield blocking was just terrific. Randy Tretlevik called a terrific offensive game. Herman Rea was outstanding blocking out front." Mike Trettevik added. "The line did a fantastic job." as both he and Tungseth proved, as they averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Next Friday, the Comets. now 1-2 for the season, take on Aurtubon in an afternoon game to be played at Hillcrest.
