Friday, Sept, 20, 1963 Galesburg Falls to Woodruff, 26 -14 Everything Goes Wrong For Streaks By JOE MORRISSEY PEORIA — It was Thursday, September 19, but it might as well have been Friday the 13th for Galesburg's Silver Streaks as they dropped a 26 to 14 battle to powerful Peoria Woodruff. A series of misfortunes started late Thursday afternoon when the Streaks learned that first string quarterback Jim Connor had fractured his right hand and would be out of action for at least three weeks. A few hours later the Galesburg bus broke down on the way to Peoria and delayed their arrival by approximately an hour. Woodruff's Warriors then pro- ceded to add the final touch to a frustrating day for Galesburg gridders when they overcame an early Streak lead to race to victory. It was the second straight victory for the Warriors who had turned back Champaign 21-0 last week. The Streaks went down to defeat for the second consecutive week, having lost 13-6 to Richwoods in their opener. " Host Canton Galesburg will host the Can ton Little Giants Saturday night Sept. 28 in an Illini Conference game at Lombard Field. The Streaks, showing definite Improvement over last week performed well against a big and fast Woodruff eleven. How ever, they couldn't cope with the explosive attack of the Warriors, geared for that damaging long play, both on the ground and in the air. Galesburg came up with 11 first downs to Woodruff's eight, but gained a total yardage of 166 to the home team's 250. The Streaks had three fumbles but recovered each time while Woodruff played without a bobble. Danny Stewart paced the Streak attack and was the leading ground gainer of the night with 87 yards in 13 carries. B. B. Brown, speedy Woodruff halfback, sparked the Warriors with 67 yards in 12 attempts. Junior Jim Catlin, in his first varsity assignment, performed well as a replacement for quarterback Conner. Conner injured his hand in a practice session Wednesday, but it was not known of the fracture until after school Thursday. Top Lineman Tackle John Holmes led the charge in Galesburg's forward wall along with center Larry Foster who did a yeoman job for the night. Other linemen who stood out for Galesburg were Bob Durbin, defensive line backer, end Larry Stinson and guards Gene Denisar and Ronnie Tate. Galesburg broke the scoreless deadlock with 4:59 to go in the STATISTICS G W First Downs 1* \ Rushing » % Passing \ f Penalties * * Yards Gained JRo 260 Rushing . 1<W <S Passing iu Passes Attempted 10 *> Passes Completed 6 A Punting 6-37 3-38 Fumbles — •> X Fumbles 1-ost 0 0 first quarter when Danny Stewart passed to Mike Davis for 42 yards and the touchdown. Davis kicked the extra point and the Streaks were on top, 7-0. However, Woodruff bounced back in the first minute of the second quarter when Terry Knapp went over from less than a foot out on a quarterback sneak. Key play in this march was a 25-yard end run by Brown. Galesburg held on to a slim 1 point lead when the extra point attempt was wide to the right. Grabs Lead Woodruff forged out in front with 5:18 remaining in the second period when Knapp hit Jim Ulrich for an 11 -yard touchdown pass. Kirby Hamm split the uprights on his conversion try to put the Warriors on top, 13-7. A 40-yard aerial from Knapp to Dave Frisby sparked this drive. Woodruff's third touchdown came on a five yard end run by Brown with 8:38 remaining in the third period. This time Brown ran for the extra point. Another Knapp to Frisby pass, Newcomer on Tour Leads By 3 Strokes PORTLAND, Ore. (UPI) - An unknown youngster set out today to protect a three-stroke lead over a classy field in the second round of the $30,000 Portland Open golf tournament. Gary Floan, 23-year-old pro from Lewiston, Idaho, came within a stroke of tying the Columbia-Edgewater club course record in the first round Thursday with an eight-under-par 64. He was three strokes ahead of his nearest competitor, Frank Beard, 24, Louisville, Ky. Both Floan and Beard are in their first season as touring pros. Four players were tied at 68, 12 at 69, 16 at 70, and 13 at 71. Behind the top 47 who broke par 72 were the two favorites, defending champion Jack Nicklaus, the Masters and PGA titleholder from Columbus, Ohio, and Billy Casper Jr., three-time Portland winner from Corona, Calif. Both shot even par. In contention with 68's were Jim Ferrier, Dean Refram, Buster Cupit and Al Balding.

Other race winners were John Blickham, Quincy, one, Don Gridley, three, Wayne England, Macomb one, Don Foster, Towan- do, one, and Dick Wignall, Galesburg one. The GIMMAC is a very well organized club, placing firemen in each turn, having a pit steward, a racing director and the wives of drivers and officials operating the concessions. The drivers race for trophys only. It shows what can be done with a small plant when it is patterned after the large organizations around the country. The GIMMAC will race here again next season and hopes for continued support.

Old Custom of Easy Opener in Football Gone By JIM BECKER The grand old custom of opening with a breather has long since been discarded, with the result that a number of college football teams may have their seasons wrecked this weekend before autumn even dawns officially. The first full week of the season has some tough STBDS scheduled, three of them tonight. Then on Saturdav, nine of the 11 teams in The AP's pre-season big ten—there was a tie for the last spot—get under way. There will be some shattered dreams by midnight. And fall doesn't even start officially until Monday UCLA and Pitt are on the slate tonight, with Pitt favored and UCLA upset-minded. The Orange Bowl will have another tough night game, Miami and Florida State. Miami has George Mira and some fancy sophomores, State has its own Dro- type passer in Steve Tensi. State Coach Bill Peterson predicts victory. Tulane, winless last year, and No. 5 Texas, unbeaten in regular play, L.eet in the other major clash tonight. On Saturday, No. 1 Southern California opens defense of its national crown against Colorado and No. 2 Mississippi should romp against Memphis State in a night game. From there on it gets tougher. No. 3 Alabama meets Georgia. No. 4 Oklahoma gets Clemson, no soft touch. No. 6 Northwestern meets Missouri. Northwestern, with Tom Myers throwing, is a touchdown favorite. No. 7 Wisconsin, the Big Ten champion, meets Western Michigan, and No. 8 Arkansas gets Ok'ahoma State, at night. Navy, No. 9 and blessed with a schedule that would make the Green Bay Packers shudder, meets upset-minded West Virginia. Washington, tied with Ohio State for the No. 10 spot, gets a test from Air Force, in the national television game. Ohio State is idle. M »ris Gets Release NEW YORK (UPI) - Roger Maris of the New York Yankees is scheduled to be released from Lenox Hill Hospital today and, will work out prior to tonight's twi-night doubleheader with the Kansas City Athletics. Maris entered the hospital last Tuesday for X-rays to determine the cause of a recurrent back ailment. NEED GUTTERS?
