est gome u "They'll be the best team we've played sti far," says Garrigan Coach Beanie Cooper about O'Gorman high school of Sioux Falls, S. D. as he prepared his unbeaten Garrigan Bears for their third straight road game this Friday night. : there is no doubt that Beanie is living on Cloud 9. He's had some frustrating years at Garrigan with injuries and some downright unlucky breaks along the path of his eight-year coaching career at the school. But things have suddenly changed. Garrigan is ranked among the better clubs in the state right now. They've got the best football team in school history and the best here since Algona's high school's 1962 group, They may be even better but that is not important. AFTER TWO GAMES, Garri gan has gained a total of 9 yards passing and running or an average of nearly 500 yards per game. This in itself is fantastic. Their quarterback, Bill Reding, a 6'4" tower of strength, was given the Des Moines Register's "Prep of the Week" bjlling two weeks ago. This, is a distinct honor and well-deserved. Reding has (carried his , 188 pounds for 179 yards in 26 carries in the first two games for a 6.9-yard average. He's passed for an additional 214 yards with 19 completions in 28 throws. He's run for four touchdowns and passed for three more. Oh yes, in his spare time he has kicked three extra points and r^n and passed for four more. . Garrigan's other big running back, 200-pound Jack Muller, a junior fullback, has rushed fori 363 yards in 60 carries for a 6.5- yard average. :•• "There is no doubt though that Dick Muller (230 pounds) and Bob Schmitt (195,pounds) have opened , some , fine holes for these boys," Beanie added. SO THIS WEEK the Bears will meet a good team that has lost both of its games and is hungry GRID GUSSERS CONTEST The football season opened last week and the Grid Guessers contest in the Kossuth County Advance started with a bang as a host of entries poured in for the first of 11 fall contests. Winner of the first content was Mrs. Charles Hoffmann of Algona, the only one of the contestants to miss Just three games. She failed on the Washington State California game, the Illinois - SMU contest and the Indiana • Miami (O) battle. But first place of $7 belongs to her. Second was won by Algona's Dick Thoreson with four misses and a 44-point total guess — closest to the 57 points which was tops. Third place was won by Louie Lenz of Council Bluffs with a 42-point guess. Also missing four games but ending just out of the money were Robert Lovstad, Burt; Jane Fraser, Algona; Richard Eischen, also of Algona. Dead last on the Mourner's Bench was Mrs. Don Gant of Madison, Wis., with 12 misses. But this is another week and the ball bounces crazily in football. Cash prizes of $15 are awaiting lucky guessers who turn in their entries from Monday's paper.

Randy was a real work' horse, carrying the ball 25 times and picking up 109 yards for better than a 4- yard per carry average. He scored Algona's second touchdown on a two-yard plunge.

They are not too big but they pass well and although they haven't got their offense going too well as»yet, we expect a tough assignment Friday." GARRIGAN came through the LeMars game without an injury and continues to operate at full strength. Cooper was not completely happy with his club's tackling and planned to stress this phase of the game in practices this week as well as pass defense, , "We won't try anything new this week," he reported. The "green" team, Garrigan reserves, traveled to Royal Friday night and were trounced 39-0 by a good Clay- Central team. Garrigan took 22 boys' to the game and most saw action. Royal is unbeaten in 14 games over the past several seasons. The Bear reserves will probably meet the St. Edmond's reserves this week.

Jim Hershberger compiled one of the best football coaching records in Algona history during his tenure here and when his team lost to Emmetsburg in the opener 6-0, Keith might have began wpnderoing how long it would be before the Monday morning quarterbacks would tart "second-guessing." But Friday night his Bulldogs showed lots of punch plus a stout defense in crushing Clear Lake 26-7 and Keith is now breathing easier. He's won his first gams and the Bulldogs showed they of desire and good had plenty coaching. "I CAN'T single out any one man on defense,".he said Sunday. "They are all playing well." That's an understatement after l\e had-to. He also lauded Randy Riedinger, who carried the ball 25 times during the night. The surprise was that Bob Farnham did not lug the ball more after practically dominating the offense in the Emmetsburg opener. "Tiiere was a good reason," Christie said, referring to Farnham's lack of offense ball-carrying action. He carried only two times all night. "We needed more blocking for our outside runs and that means double-teaming the end. Bob did a fine job in helping us get some good gains on the outside. After the Emmetsburg game when we ran almost every play up the middle, we knew Clear Lake would jam us." ALGONA used 21 players- in the game and the return of Max Miller, Don Hagen and Steve ths defense held Clear Lake to Waller'from the injured list'gave than 100 yards overall. It the second straight week .third period to tie the game. Mike Betts and Larry Taylor, a couple of sophomores, carried for big yardage on the march with Taylor going over from the one-yard line and he also added the extra point on a run. But Clear Lake started on its own 18-yard line with four minutes to play and three long passes ate up most of the yardage. The locals meet Clarion here next Monday night. They are!was now M for the season. less was they've accomplished this feat. "But we've got lots of work to do this week," he added. "Scouts tell us that Clarion is a top outfit. They pushed Webster City all around be. fore losing 13-7." Actually, the Lynx scored both of their touchdowns on passes, one of which was a 79-yarder Clarion had trouble against BeV mond in the opener but played Webster City "off its feet" Christie said. "They are a good hitting team and noi afraid of contact," h$ reported. So there is little doubt that Algona will meet its toughr est foBiFriday night at Clarion. They'll then come home for four of their last five games. : CERTAINLY there is little doubt that Clear Lake was probably the weakest team Algona will play this season. Although the Lions had 14 lettermen back, they are not a hard-hitting dub nor did they show much offensive punch except for a late first half drive for their only touchdown. Christie was pleased with the improvement of jiuiior quarterback Roger Barr, whose passing the Bulldogs much more depth than in the opener. AH three played exceptionally well. Best of all, the Bulldogs came out of the game with no injuries and should be at full strength for the Cowboys much better than ia the who ran vyell whoa LARK?
