Westmer Loses To Atkinson As Rally Fails JOY — Scoring in every quarter but the last, Atkinson overcame a fourth quarter rally by a determined Westmer team here Thursday night to win 19-13 in a Cornbelt Conference game. A nine-yard run by Dick Van Opdorp followed by a pass from Dennis Van Meenen to Roger Goreth for the extra point started the Atkinson scoring. Three other Atkinson touchdowns were called back in the first quarter. Van Opdorp also scored on a 6-yard run in the second quarter to put Atkinson in front 13 to 0 at the half.

The rally ended here as Atkinson dug in and held on to their lead. in front with a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter and stayed on top the rest of the way. Galesburg, led by hard-running Fritz Menke, made a good showing against the heavily favored Central team and was able to move the ball well on offense. However, errors — both mechanical and mental—proved costly against the Lion eleven. Neumann, who ran 73 yards from scrimmage for the first two touchdowns, picked up 104 yards on five carries and added 37 to the Central total through the air. Menke Sets Pace Menke was the main show as far as Galesburg's running game was concerned and on several occasions showed the wisdom of hard running and that second burst of energy. He made this formula pay off last night with 117 yards in 13 carries. Quarterback Jim Catlin did a good job directing the Streak attack and completed seven out of 10 passes for a total of 64 yards through the air. Central drove 58 yards for a touchdown after receiving the opening kickoff with Jeff Conrad diving over from the two. A running attempt for the extra point failed. Galesburg fumbled on its first play from scrimmage and Central recovered on the Galesburg 38. After three first downs Dirk Wall- brock plunged over from the two for the TD. The conversion attempt again failed but the Streaks trailed 12-0. Galesburg crashed the scoring column midway in the second quarter when Catlin fired to end Mike Davis on a 37-yard touchdown play. The Streak flanker made a circus catch on the seven- yard line and went the rest of the way. The conversion attempt failed when the pass from center was bad. Seconds later, Central fans were treated to one of the spectacular plays of the night when Neuman authored his 73-yard spring to paydirt. This was on the first play from scrimmage after receiving the Galesburg kickoff. Wallbrock kicked the extra point and the Lions were on top 19-6 before the teams left the field at halftime. Neither club scored in the third stanza but the Lions scored early in the fourth quarter when Neuman went eight yards on a roll out around left end. This drive carried 85 yards and started in the third period. The conversion attempt failed. The final score of the evening came when a Catlin to Dan Stewart pass clicked for 10 yards and the TD. This drive started when Galesburg's Bill Copeland recovered a Central fumble on the Streak 35. STATISTICS Galesburg Central Wins in Stretch PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Really Something, driven by Del Cameron, came out of the pack in the home stretch Thursday night and won the $9,375 Penn's Purchase Trot, the Grand Circuit harness racing feature at Liberty Bell Park.

Denied its first Midwest Conference win on a fourth quarter kickoff return and conversion last weekend, Knox meets Coe for another try at victory. Coe, with a 1-2 record in three games, is led by quarterback Rich Tosi. Tosi has thrown for 162 yards to date and directed the Kohawk rushing offense over 346 yards. Knox will retaliate with Duke Botthof, who enters into the contest with a 13 of 28, 47 per cent completion record for 193 yards and one touchdown. He has also caught four passes for 94 yards. Knox may be hard-pressed to make any impression on the Coe defense Saturday. The Iowans were first in the MWC in that respect before getting shelled by Ripon 35-8 their last time out. Missing from the Coe lineup will be Rollie Pardun, a powerful junior halfback sidelined for the season by an injury. He had been the Kohawks' largest individual ground gainer through three games. Sophomore Don Hayes will take over his vacated position. Veteran fullback Bill Johnson, a 182- pound runner, also looks to become more active in the Coe offense since the loss of Pardun. Siwash Leaders Pete Holstrom also reaped a bumper crop of yardage against the Vikings. He has a 3.4 average per carry this season and gained 74 yards last Saturday. Halfback Don Harrington has teamed with Bottof in the Siwash air attack, throwing four com plete passes for a 94 yard total On the other end, he has caught five for 117 yards. A defensive line which limited Lawrence to 74 yards from scrimmage carries Knox hopes into the game. The offensive wall has shown lapses which must be corrected if Coe is to be overcome.

Rodgers broke up the midfield battle when he found Gary Way on a 43-yard pass play in the third period for what appeared to be the first TD of the evening.

Knoxville Hands Alexis 1st Setback in 18-7 Loop Tilt ALEXIS - Knoxville, held in check throughout the first half, came alive to hand previously unbeaten Alexis an 18-7 setback here Thursday night in an important Little Six Conference match. The Blue Bullets thus retained their unbeaten status in the conference while Alexis dropped its first decision in three games. Aledo also kept a spotless Little Six record to keep pace with Knoxville, pre-season favorites to finish atop the conference. Knoxville failed to break into the scoring column in the opening two periods, as did Alexis, but sent John Rosene in from 3 yards out for a 6-0 lead in the third quarter. Coach Rich McKillip's charges broke it open in the final period as Rod Dennis went 18 yards to the end zone and Dean Albright returned a pass interception 20 yards for the touchdown. Bob McCreight plunged over from the one foot line for the lone Cardinal TD. Curtis Moore kicked for the point after touchdown and Alexis jumped ahead in its bid for win number five this season without a loss. Fullback Jim Farm set the stage for McCreight with a run of 15 yards moments earlier. Dennis, running from his halfback position, swept around left end to counter the Alexis touchdown and put Knoxville on top to stay shortly afterward. Knoxville le It lg Lui "Spin" Spinillo brought down a short pass in the secondary and raced 45 yards to cap an offensive which began on the ROVA five yard line. The tiny (5'4", 135 pounds) freshman back personally ran up four first downs to keep the drive moving. ROVA came alive after halftime and tied the score on an overhead thrust carrying 58 yards. Dick Young threw to Dick Edwards for the TD after Scott had moved the ball 33 yards in three plays. A pass for the extra point was broken up in the Tiger backfield. Only Spillino enjoyed much success on the ground. He got the first Friar touchdown march underway with a series of short gains early in the second quarter. A tough Tiger defense, headed by junior linebacker Steve Blender, contained the Friar running attack for much of the evening. This was instrumental in Prina taking to the air after Corpus went without a first down in the opening period. It proved to be a change for the better where the Irish were concerned. Prina unlimbered 25 passes and completed 13 for a total of 97 yards. He also booted an important placement after the final touchdown. While Scott accounted for the larger share of ROVA yardage, Edwards hit junior Lowell German in several key situations to keep coach Bill Adams' Tigers moving forward. Halfback Les Ehler spelled Scott in the ground attack, churning out 35 yards on one run. Corpus Christi had a number of defensive standouts. Prina, Kennedy, Mike Hanrahan and Steve Mills all contributed with jarring tackles and watchdog pass defense, ROVA ABINGDON - Aledo stunned Abingdon 33-19 here Tuesday night with an offense likened to a gambler's shell game. Five different Green Dragon performers perpetrated a hoax that kept Abingdon guessing — and scored touchdowns while doing so. Aledo, now 3-0 in Little Six play, led by a 19-7 halftime score. Abingdon, still without a win after three conference engagements, spotted the powerful Dragons 13 points in the opening period and could never get back in contention. Jim Hastings opened the scoring with a touchdown run of 35 yards. Center Dave Griswold then recovered an Abingdon fumble, carrying the ball the final 93 yards for the six-pointer. Quarterback Bill Butler provided Abingdon fans with something to cheer about, passing for two touchdowns and going over from a yard out on another occasion. The Commandos scored on the first play of the second quarter as Butler found Mike Weathers on a play covering 16 yards. The 158-pound senior hit Brent Stanley in the end zone from 13 yards out in the closing quarter. Gary Dellitt, Jim Hilligoss and Rick Murphy came up with the remaining Aledo TD's. Murphy, Jim Luttrell and Hilligoss added extra points three times. Butler kicked a placement for Abingdon after the second period touchdown.
