Rich- Streaks Bow, 13-6 Richwoods Wins Illini Tilt By JOE MORRISSEY The Knights of Peoria Richwoods were without shining armor Saturday night at Lombard Field, but they sparkled on their own in a 13-6 triumph over the Galesburg Silver Streaks. The victory in Saturday nights opener was the first step in the right direction for the Knights who are in defense of their Illini Conference grid crown. It was only Hich- woods' second win over Galesburg in the seven year series. However, it was the Knights' second consecutive grid triumph over the Streaks. Coach C C. Van Dyke's charges i that hurt the most. a major factor in the outcome, Mistakes Costly Several fumbles and the inability to hold on to passes in vital situations helped lead to Galesburg's downfall. However, it was probably their inability to capitalize on Richwood's mistakes had an edge in the statistics but were never ahead and trailed after the first five minutes of the second quarter.

Richwoods, which was expected to possess speed and finesse, displayed surprising power and were especially strong on defense. In fact, &eir near spectacular ability to rise to the occasion on defense was In fact, the turning point of the game may have come late in the second quarter when Galesburg recovered a fumble on Richwoods' 10-yard line. The Streaks were trailing by just six points at the time but were unable to push it over and the Knights took charge on their own six. In the third quarter, trailing 13-0, the Steraks missed another scoring opportunity after driving to a first down on the Richwood's seven. They reached the two on the nest play but couldn't get past the one. Galesburg 's lone touchdown came early in the third period when Danny Stewart passed to Mike Davis for 32 yards and the score. This TD drive started on the Richwoods 47, however, the extra point attempt failed. Break Deadlock Richwoods broke the scoring deadlock with 5:45 remaining in the second quarter when Bill Zierke went around right end for two yards and the touchdown, but the try for the extra f>oint was no good. Richwood's initial score was set up when they took over the ball on tuc Galesburg seven after a bad pass from center by the Streaks. However, it took the Knights four plays to reach paydirt through the GHS defense. Another fumble set the stage for Richwoods' second touchdown march early in the third period. After recovering the Galesburg bobble on the Streak 35, the Knights moved the ball goalward with halfback Dennis Zolper going off tackle for the last 11 yards. Randy Conner kicked the extra point and Richwoods held a 13-0 lead at the time. Galesburg will take to the road for the first time this season when they battle Peoria Woodruff Friday night in a non-conference game. Rlchwood* Knickerbocker LE B.

Late Rally by Dave Lundstrom One-Stroke Shy Bob Dredge wrote a new chapter to an old story Sunday afternoon as he grabbed championship honors in the sixth annual Galesburg All-City Golf Tournament. However, the veteran tournament campaigner had to stave off the charge of young Dave Lundstrom who finished in the runner-up spot, just one stroke off the pace. Dredge, who had trailed Pete Boynton by three strokes at the halfway mark, wound up with a 72-hole total of 291. Boynton, who lost his lead in Saturday's round at the Soange- taha Country Club, was tied for third with Bob Hoopes at 294. Bill Fox and Bob McFarland shared fifth place with 297. It was the second consecutive all-city crown for Dredge who won four times in the tournament's six-year history. He did not compete in 1960 when he was playing in the U. S. Amateur meet. For runner-up Lundstrom, a junior at Galesburg High School, it was a spectacular effort as he kept the pressure on tournament-wise Dredge until the final hole. Comes From Behind Dredge was the first round leader with a sparkling 69 but gave way to former champion Boynton in second round play at the Knox County Country Club last Sunday. He bounced back Saturday at Soangetaha and had a two-stroke lead at the end of 54 holes. In fact, Dredge was five back after the first two holes Saturday but was even with Boynton after the next four. The 16-year-old Lundstrom was never more than three strokes down during yesterday's round and trailed by two strokes most of the way. He missed a four- foot bridie putt on 15 which would have cut the lead to one, but picked up a stroke when Dredge bogied 17. For a brief moment it looked as if Lundstrom might catch Dredge on No. 18 hole in yesterday's final round. Dave hit the green — although some 30 feet from the pin — and Bob was a few feet off the apron. However, Dredge chipped up to within four feet of the cup for Ponies in 6-0 Win At Peoria PEORIA — Galesburg Sophomores started the 1963 season out right here Saturday morning with a 6-0 victory over Peoria Central. Steve Ferguson scored the lone touchdown of the game on a nine yard end run in the second quarter. This climaxed an 80-yard drive for the Ponies. Coach Bob Frank's Ponies had two touchdowns called back and were one foot from a score when time ran out at halftime. The locals were sharp defensively as Central failed to get inside the Galesburg 20. The Ponies are host to Peoria Woodruff Saturday morning at 10 o'clock on Lombard Field. and easy par and Lundstrom two putted. Jack Aldcrson, who finished with a 305 for the tournament, had a 70 for the best score of the day Sunday. Jim Lehman, who had a 299, and Lundstrom each had a 71. However, it was Saturday 's round at Soangetaha that really put Lundstrom back in the run ning after he had trailed by seven strokes at the halfway mark. He fired a 73 and was just three back at the end of 54. Dredge appeared as though he might be in trouble on two con secutive holes Sunday but wound up with pars both times and lost only one stroke in the process On No. 14 his tee shot was to the right of the fairway and into some trees. Using an eight iron on his second shot, Dredge was short but chipped to within two feet of the pin with a wedge to set up an easy pair. Dredge was also in a bit of trouble on No. 15 but went to his wedge again and this time his ball stopped just six inches from the cup. Among the leaders, Hoopes was the most consistent in scoring during four-day tournament with three rounds of 73 and one 75. Permanent trophies were pre sented to the first four places and merchandise prizes to all those who finished the 72-hole meet. In addition, Dredge retained possession of the large traveling trophy. Don Ridings and Phil Hund, as well as runnerup Lundstrom, were unable to accept prizes because of the high school eligibility rules. The tournament was co sponsored by the Galesburg Register- Mail and Radio Station WGIL and is being carried on in the memory of William C. Pritchard, one of the founders of the All-City meet. Birds to Spare The top four golfers were in the last group Sunday and three of them birdled the No. 6 hole. Dredge barely missed as all four had birdie putts of six feet or less.

Bob McFarland Bud Miller Jim Lehman Ray Jess Pico Don Riflings Others — John Shave Erickson son. 305; Kip ALEDO — Sparked by a strong defense and the offensive brilliance of Pat Prina, the Corpus Christi Friars had no first game jitters in a 26-7 victory over Roosevelt Military Academy of Alcdo here Saturday night. Quarterback Pat Prina, who was backed by the power thrusts of fullback Dan Ridings, had a hand in all 26 points scored by the Friars in Saturday night's opener. Pat, who also excells in basketball and baseball to keep busy the year round, ran, passed utul kicked for the winners and stood out on defense. He ran for three touchdowns, passed for another, kicked for one extra point and passed for one. Ridings was the workhorse for the local Irish as he carried the ball 14 times for a total of 82 yards. He picked up crucial yardage with off tackle smashes. The Friars completely domi- ated the game, even more than their 10 first downs to RMA's four would indicate.

Later in the same period, the Friars took over at the midficld stripe and drove for a touchdown with Prina passing to Jim Kennedy for the last 17 yards. The extra point attempt was no good. Ridings was the big ground gainer in this march. A booming kickoff by Mike Hanrahan plus alert defensive play put the Cadets back on their heels again in the third quarter. They were forced to punt and Prina promptly returned the 65- yards for a touchdown. The conversion attempt failed again. Corpus Christi's final score of the game came in the fourth quarter when Prina dashed 28 yards to paydirt. The Friar star put on the finishing touch with a perfect placement.
