FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1970, PAGE 12 SPORTS PAGE Concord/ a, Principia Battle to 7 -7 Tie Playing before a large Principia Indian homecoming crowd, the Cougars of Concordla Teachers College, River Forest, and the Indians fought to a 7-7 tie. After a rather dismal first half, the Cougars came out in the second half to drive 77 yards in 14 plays to supply their only score of the game. Senior quarterback Dennis Meunler, from Brookfield, Wisconsin, completed 7 or 8 passes of the drive and hit 5 different receivers. The final pass was a 5 yd. to halfback Cliff Walton. For the game Meunier completed 11 of 21 passes for 117 yards. Split end Jim Conrad caught 3 for 27 yards, tight end Craig Mueller 3 for 43, and halfback Cliff Walton 3 for 29 yards. Fullback Tom Fahl led the Cats in rushing with 43 yards in 12 carries. Concordla's defense was challenged time and time again as Principia ran off 44 offensive plays to CTC's 14 In the first half. The defense continually rose to the occasion to hold the Indians to 7 points. Defensive ends Al Schmook and Craig Mueller, tackier Steve Koerner and Steve Bronner, and inside Linebackers Bill Young and Dave Berdls all played good games. Defensive halfbacks Dave Reinklng and Jon Witte and safety Bill Scheiwe kept their excellent defensive record going by allowing only 5 completions in 12 attempts for 15 yards and grabbed 2 Interceptions. Scheiwe picked off his third of the year In the final seconds to preserve the tie. After Walton scored the TD and Reinking kicked the tying point, neither team was able to mount a scoring drive. The Cougars got as close as the 37 once and the 26 another time but that was It. Principia drove to CTC's 29 but Scheiwe picked off a pass to end the game. Concordla lsiow2-2-l. Retain . W.

Walther's Cross Country Team The Walther Cross Country Team placed two runne.-s into the top five Saturday in their Private School League Conference Meet as they took third place honors behind first place Timothy Christian and second place Chicago Christian. The spectacular showing for the Broncos came when Bob Mensik of Walther staged a tremendous upset over Ray VanDenend of Timothy Christian. Dave Platt of Luther South, and Kurt Shallenberger of Luther North, all favorites who had beaten him in dual meets earlier in the season by taking 1st place in 14:18 for the 2.6 mile course. Close behind was Bob Landrebe in 14:25 taking 4th place. Ken Urban (14:56) finished 12th, Bob Cleaver (15:08) 17th, and Barry Fleming (15;47) 26th for the Broncos top five. This was enough- to give Walther 60 points in the meet, 7 points behind Timothy Christian's 53 and 5 points behind Chicago Christian's 55. The first victory came at home against nilana Christian on a rain and mud day. Bob Landrebe, Bob Manslk, Ken Urban, and Bob Cleaver took 1-2-3-4 to lead the Broncos to their biggest victory margin in history 16-41. Illiana's Dan Kallemeyn beat out Bronco Barry Fleming for 5th place to avert a shutout for Walther. Next it was the Luther North meet, run at their course. Perhaps the fiercest rivalry in the league, North sent out all their runners fast in hopes of decoying the Walther runners to use up their energy but the best that North could wind up with was 4th place. Landrebe, Mensik, and Urban took 1-2-3 again; Cleaver got a 5th and Fleming 8th, as Walther shut down the big school 19-37. The last meet against Luther South was the closest and toughest of the three. Winless against South since 1965, -the Broncos were hard-pressed to win this one 23-33. Neck and neck all the way, South's Dave Platt edged out Minsik at the finish for 1st place. Landrebe and Urban got 3rd and 4th. Bob Cleaver had to run the best race in his life to pass up three South runners in the last 880 yards, to finish in 5th place and to lock tills one up for the Broncos, closing out their finest season ever. Gordon Slips by Fenwick, 7-0 By John Griffin The Fenwick Friars took their third loss In a row by losing to the Gordon Tech Rams 7-0 Sunday at Lane Stadium. The game was scoreless until mid-way In the fourth quarter when Gordon's quarterback Mike Bralt passed to End Russ Udelhofen from Fenwick's 10 for the touchdown.

A pass interference call on Gordon brought the ball to the 5. On the next three plays, the ball was given to halfback Tom Feeheley who was unable to penetrate Gordon's defensive line from the 1/2 yard line. On fourth down, John Cahlll of Fenwick also failed to score. The Friars had another opportunity to score In the fourth quarter. Trailing 7-0, they had the ball deep In the Ram's territory.
