30 jtoftrprnfrrnl-flmmial. Mon., Oct. 17, 1966 Redwood Rolls Over Marin Catholic For First Win Wilson Sparks Giants To Easy 30-6 Victory rr By RALPH CHATOIAN Redwood, a team picked by many as favorite to win the Marin Athletic League football title, has finally wan its first game of the year, after four straight losses. It. was an easy win for the Giants of Coach Bob Tropp- mann. but Redwood’s foe was Marin Catholic, and we must remind you the Wildcat’s haven't won a league game since 1961. with a 34-yard TD toss with only 37 seconds left in the half. Cooper made a great catch of the ball, jumping between Marin Catholic defenders Mark Stempel and Pat Carney and coming down flat on his back a yard deep in the end zone. He was slightly shaken up on the play, but came back in the game later to catch two more passes to wind up with 101 yards worth Final score of the Saturday of receptions night game was 30-6. piayed be- j Redwood opened the second fore 2.400 bundled fans in Col-1 half by driving 16 plays to the lege of Marin Stadium. The triumph gave Redwood a 1-2 record in MCAL play and left the scratching Wildcats at 0-3. The game wasn’t actually as close as the score sounds, as Redwood failed to punch over touchdowns on four other drives that stalled within the Marin Catholic 10-yard stripe. Even without these scores, Redwood hit the scoreboard in every quarter. with Marin Catholic finally scoring its first touchdown in three weeks very late in the final quarter. Redwood set the tempo of the game, by scoring on its first play from scrimmage, a 43-yard pass from Kevin Wilson to flanker Dave Otteson. It came after Marin Catholic failed to move the ball in three plays and punted, the first of eight punts by the Marin ’Cats. Wilson, wrho got fine pass protection and didn’t have to scramble, later passed for another touchdown and ran one over himself, having his best game of the year. He completed 10 of 18 passes for 209 yards, four yards more than the entire Marin Catholic team could muster. Redwood made it 12-0 early in the second quarter when halfback Ken Johnson returned a pijit 31 yards down the sidelines. By the time the first half was over, it was 18-0, this time Wilson hitting end Joe Cooper TAM-NOVATO STATISTICS SCORING SEQUENCE FIRST QUARTER No- Tam vato 6 0 Adams, 1-yd run. kick failed: 4:00 remaining. 6 6 Dinkel. 49-yd pass from Fain, kick failed. 2:29.

After five pass plays, Marin faked a punt on fourth and four, but Jim Finnegan’s run was short. Redwood took over on its own 44 and six plays later—two big plays being Wilson passes of 12 yards to Craig Scott and 33 yards to Ken Johnson — the Giants were on the two-vard line. From there. Wilson swung wide around right end on a keeper and scored, making it 24-0. Redwood upped it to 30-0 in the final quarter with 205-pound halfback Stan Tobiason crashing through right tackle from three yards out. The play was set up five plays earlier when a Wilson to Cooper pass netted 58 yards. Redwood tried to run for the extra point and it didn’t work. But neither did the other two runs, kick and pass for PAT. Marin Catholic sophomore Dan Fouts, who fumbled snaps from center four times in the first half—but only lost on the fumbles once—started to find his range with passes in the fourth quarter. He completed five passes in the last quarter, the last one setting up Marin’s lone touchdown. It was a 39-yarder to fullback Dan Snead. Halfback Jim Finnegan, a stocky 165-pounder, did the rest. After Fouts’ pass took the ball to the 13, Finnegan got the call and crashed through left tackle for 10 yards and a first down on the Redwood three. On the next play, Finnegan hit at left tackle again, this time bulling in for the touchdown, and the Marin Catholic cheering section finally had something to scream about. SCORING SUMMARY THAT EXTRA YARD— Tamalpais s receiver extraordinaire Alike Biber struggles for some extra yardage after hauling in a pass from quarterback Steve Woodward in the first quarter at Novato Saturday.

Riordan, the City’s only representative in the Catholic Athletic League, wasted no time in living up to its reputation as one of the stronger teams in Northern California en route to its 45-25 triumph. Before the Pirates caught on to what mistakes they were making defensively, the mighty Crusaders had posted 19-points on the scoreboard in the first quarter, and Drake had yet to score. Jim Hudson, a fancy stepping halfback, tallied each of those touchdowns, two on passes of 55 and 43 yards and one on a 51-yard reverse around left end that had the Pirates completely baffled. On the two pass receptions, it was simply a matter of Hudson outspeeding the Drake defense as Riordan quarterback John Maxwell had plenty of time to throw and found it easy to thread t h e needle. Head Pirate Mentor Bob Franceschini noted “We did make mistakes; especially on our pass defense. But I think it was one of our better offensive efforts.” That it was a great offensive effort behind the arm of Don Nation's Top Teams Triumph By Associated Press Here's how the nation's top college football teams fared in Saturday's games: 1 Michigan State (5-0) beat Ohio State 118 2 .

Stone and his favorite receiver, Karl Stein, cannot be d e n i e d. But it is questionable whether the Drake defenders could have contained the speedy Crusader ! backs and hard-charging offensive line, anyway. The Pireates twice scored in the secod period while adjusting enough to hold the Crusaders to a single tally: but to fall that far behind a team of Riordan’s caliber is not a rosy picture. As the end product showed. Stein, who caught 6 passes for 100 yards, scored the first Drake touchdown on a 46-vard pass from Stone. Don Alvarado gathered in a 30-yard Stone pass for the second Drake score. Stein scored the third touch- i down on a 12-vard sweep around I left end to culminate a 10-play drive that started on the Pirates' 40-yard line. Chet Carlisle an end, caught a crucial pass on a fourth and five situation to keep that drive alive on the MCAL FOOTBALL STANDINGS Riordan 36; and an 18-yard strike from Stone to Stein preceded the subsequent score.

The Hornets were on the board liek- ety split with a 49-yard bomb across the middle to end Gary Dinkel from Fain, making it 6 - 6 . No sooner did the pom pons rest than Woodward cocked and found Reiter all alone across the middle on the Tam 35. Reiter outran one defender before being hauled down on the Novato 14 for a 65-yard gain. Four plays later, Adams pounced in from the one for a 12-16 lead. Another pass across the middle from Fain to Perachiotti good for 30 yards set up the Hornets again but it was a Fain pass to Ray Jones that clicked for the score and seven yards to make it 12-12 in the second quarter. But Tam threw in another score, this time Reggie Walker ripping in from six yards on a pitchout just before the half ended to make it 18-12. The Hornets lost their sting in the second half and the Indians pulled off to a cozy 32-12 lead as Woodward really unlimbered. After a string of eight straight passes in the first half, Woodward hit on 10 straight in the second half, firing to Steve Johnson for a 26-yard touchdown, then hitting Biber on a seven-yarder for two big TD's in the third period. Novato gamely came back with Perachiotti clawing in from one-yard out to cut the gap to 32-18 early in the fourth quarter. But Woodward sighted Biber on the sideline on the Novato 35- yard line. Biber tucked in the pass, turned on the speed and raced into the end zone untouched by human hands to put the game out of reach. Reserve quarterback Russ Dillion, a sure-throwing sophomore. got the Hornets’ last string in with an 11-yarder to Dinkel and. although the Indians were driving again, that was it. The kickers had a bad day of it with seven misses in seven tries. If anybody wants to know.

PRO CAGE_OPENER Errors Kill Warriors in Loss To Celtics BOSTON i AP)— They're only one game into the National Basketball Assn. season and already the San Francisco Warriors miss guard Guy Rodgers. The Warriors made 28 ball control errors Saturday night and lost 121-113 to the Boston Celtics ¡n Bill Shaman’s debut as a coach. Meanwhile, the new Chicago entry roared past St. Louis 10497 as Rodgers scored 36 points for game honors. And the Warriors meet Chicago in their next game tomorrow. Rodgers was traded to the Bulls for Jim King and Jeff Mullins before the start of the season. Before the game against the NBA champion Celtics, Sharman’s old Boston number was retired. His former teammate, Bill Russell, also made his debut as a coach, but he still plays. It wasn’t Russell, but Larry Siegfried who led the Celts. The former Ohio State star scored the Celtics' last 14 points, bringing Boston from behind for the victory. Rick Barry l.'J scorers with 41 points and Nate Thurmond got around Russell for 24 points. Sam Jones collected 29 for Boston. “It’s funny,’’ ‘Shaman said afterward. “But 1 wasn't worried about our ball handling at all. I was worried about our defense and rebounding.” Wilson K.
