Smaller Schools Prove Big When It Comes To Football Eleven-man football, once classified as a sport exclusively designed for big schools, has been installed and become very popular in several so-called small schools in this area in the past few years. Titonka, Swea City and West Bend have all proven the old theory to be a false one, and the inception of the eleven-man game has produced very good i teams during recent seasons Swea City o;igmally started with six-man football, but changed to the other game within a couple of years. Shortage of manpower seemed to be the cause of six-man football, but the shortage still exists and winning teams continue to represent the three .-chools. Bode and Livermoie, which have also had outstanding team.-; in the past, are other hot-.-pots where football has become a regular activity for sports fans every fall.

Larry Berninghaus and Chuck Miller and juniors Gary Anlikcr and Don Peril. Besch was nn all-Cornbelt Conference selection in 1954 and is certain to repeat this year. He is a 6' 1" 200 pound halfback that hits like a Mack truck and has been an outstanding ball carrier since his first year. Besch is a passer of note, catches passes thrown his way, a good blockcr. who on defense specializes! in intercepting passes, making tackles and generally messing up nil opposition attempts at offensive maneuvers. Berninghaus. a second-team all conference end selection last fall, is t>' 1" and weighs 185. Defensively, lie is probably the top West Bend man. as many opposing backs could testify to the fcrrociousness of his deadly tackling. Larry is also the favorite target of most of the West Bend passing attack. His catches have rca j resulted in many touchdowns for Gary Anliker Anliker holds down the cm. opposite Berninghaus. He is 5'11" and weighs in at 180. His all-around play, including defensive and offensive tactics, put him not too far behind the famous Bcsch-Berninghaus duo. Pert! is a 5'10" 170 pounder, who plays guard on offense ana end on defense. He is the top man in the middle of the line when the Bulldogs go for the long gainer. Coach Ferguson's three-year record at West Bend is 15-7-2. He is a graduate of Nebraska State Teachers and a family man. His ability to produce two winning teams after a dismal first year marks him as a highly regarded and respected football strategist. Coach Lylc Opheim, Titonka Indian mentor, has produced Don Peril winning football there since he took the reigns. His greatest club was probably the 1953 Indians, who won six and lost one, but fans in that area have been pleased by the present team's 5-3 record. This year, the Indians have outscored opponents, 112-105, and gave West Bend a real go before falling, 25-12. If was Opheim's 1053 team that pasted Ihe last defeat on West Bend before Ruthvcn turned the trick two weeks ago. Bill Lylc, Swea City's new coach, faced a tough schedule with an under-manned squad and has won three and lost four. The Trojans, after losing four of first five games, came back to shut out Thompson, 19-0, and Armstrong. 25-0. They met Titonka in the season finale for both teams at Titonka Friday night. Swea City scored 82 points while giving up 106 this season. Several former players from these schools have gone on to play college ball, and if this year's crop doesn't supply two or three, we'll miss our guess. Chuck Miller Mallard Bows To West Bend, 33-0, At Homecoming West Bend's Bulldogs .rounded out a successful season with a convincing 33-0 verdict over Mallard during homecoming festivities at West Bend Friday night. The Bulldogs finished with a 7-1 won-lost mark. West Bend rolled 78 yards for its first touchdown, with Dale Jergens getting the counter on a 20 yard dash. Ted Besch slammed over with the extra point to make it 7-0. Mallard maneuvered its way down field following the next kick-off to the West Bend 10 yard line, but was stopped by the aggressive Bulldogs as the first period came to an end. The teams battled back and forth until the middle of the second stanza when Jergens intercepted a Mallard pass and zoomed 65 yards for the second TD. Besch again added the extra point. Thursday, November 3, 1955 Algona (la.) Upper Dei Mflinei—7 down in the third period. He skipped 25 yards on a reverse and Besch made the extra point, running the count to 21-0. The fourth West Bend tally was scored by Bob Burns as he went 30 yards in six plays. The extra point attempt failed. Chuck Miller passed for 20 yards to Larry Berninghaus for the final TD to make it 33-0. Mallard was thwarted by West Bend's defense during the entire second half. The win gave West Bend second place in the Cornbelt Conference as Terril grabbed the crown. The lone West Bend defeat was at the hands of Rulhven, 18-13. Gaylc Berninghaus was crowned queen and Ted Besch king during homecoming ceremonies. Tyke 13, Swea City 7, Winds Grid Seasons Titonka capped a winning football season with a 13-7 win over Swea City in a Cornbelt Conference game at Titonka Friday night. The Indians chalked up their first win over a Swea City team and ran their season mark to 5-3 with a touchdown in the last two minutes. The Indians opened the Fcorini.' in the first perirxl as Gary Smidt tallied from the 5 yard line. .He set the score up on the previous play when he bolted through and blocked a Swea City punt. The Trojans came up with their touchdown minutes later on a double reverse to set up the terrific finish. Titonka marched downfield in the fourth period after a scoreless third quarter. The Indians scored, but the play was called back, finally losing the ball on downs. Swea City was pinned deep in its own territory, and finally at, tempted to punt out of danger. Jergens got his third touch- The scrimmage line was the five, the kick wont up and up and when the wind Rot done with ii the ball wont out of bounds on the Sw.'a City four, ONE YARD BEHIND THE LINK OF SCRIMMAGE. Krommga scored on the third play, and Titonka had the win. Sirl Buffimilon was the big ground gainer for the winners during frav, which found Swea City finishing with a 3-5 season mark.
