Unbeaten Bears crush St. Edmonds, 46-6 Ewmetsburg is Homecoming foe here Saturday Garrigan high school dazzled a good St. Edmond's football team with brilliant passing and running Saturday night to crush the Gaels 46-6 before the largest crowd ever to watch a St. Ed. game in Dodger Stadium. With • crowd of 500 or 600 Algona fans rooting thorn on, the Boars struck oarly and than rushed ovar fivo first half touchdowns for an unbe- liavablo 32-0 halftima margin. The stretched it to 46-0 by the end of the third quarter when •Beanie Cooper began to sprinkle the field with reserves' (nol too many since his traveling squad .was one less than two teams). > IT WAS AN eleven-man team victory for the,J8ears with stars aplenty but nrftie shone quite as brightly as senior quarterback Bill Reding. If there is a batter quarterback playing' football in Iowa, it's darn sure he isn't on the high school level. Reding refrained from using his favorite bootleg "run or pass" play but during the three quarters and a little more he was in there, he tossed four touchdown passes, three more extra point passes, and completed 18 or 26 tosses for a fantastic 259 yards. That, dear readers, is quite an evening. To date, in four victorious games, he has thrown seven touchdown passes, run for five more, has converted 11 extra points, completed 42 of 62 passes for a 68 par cent average and has a total of 690 passing and running yards. Small wonder Iowa freshman coach Ted Lawrence is taking a long, long look at Reding as a possible thrower for the Hawk eyes in a couple of years. He is undoubtedly the finest quarter back to ever play football in Al Bancroft finishes season, 11-1 SPORTS THURSDAY, OCT. 6,1966 — ALOONA, IOWA — and then passed twice to Mike Belts for 31 and 58 yard touchdown plays. The Bullpups recovered a fumble in the end zone for another score and Bruce Bennett caught a four-yard touchdown pass from Tim Black for the fifth first half marker. Steve Chrischillcs caught a 10- yard touchdown pass from Ro- gcrt for still another marker and Rogcrt ran four yards to make it 47-6. Coach Howie Stcphenson cleared the bench in the late moments of the game arid'the 2nd team marched 55 yards for a score with Jack Waller carrying over from the two-yard line. Twin Rivers scored late in the first half and again on a 58-yard run midway in the final period.

That includes lots of good wllplayers but ifs doubtful if any could do all the things Mr. leding can do and so well, too. He can pass from the pocket or on the run, .he's downright ;errific running back kicks, and lis defensive game is above average. , HE HAD PLENTY of help in the Gael win. Dave McCarthy and Jack Dahlhauser did some Pine blocking, Jim Youngwirth and Tom Black were snagging his passes and even John Mertz, moved up from tha "green" team just this week, was more than adequate as he filled in for the injured Jack Muller and scored two second half touchdowns on runs of 21 and 36 yards. The Bears were thwarted the first two times they had the ball, the second on a fumble but starting from the Gael 34 after a brilliant 51-yard punt return by Reding, it was "Katy Bar the Swea City and Armstrong remain unbeaten in State Line conference GENE LICKTEIG 'Five kickoff tackles" ORIGINAL SSALE STARTS THURSDAY OCTOBER 13 AMERICA'S GREAHST DRUG STORE HUNDREDS OF ITEMS AT 2 FOR THE; PRICE OF i PLUS A PENNY! to just six for piling up 280 Thompson's 81. •>?

It's possible he'll see no action this week but for sure he'll be ready for Carroll Kuemper here Oct. 15. The,Bears struck again as Reding unlimbered his arm for the 'first of four straight touchdown passes early in the second quarter.

"We have no complaint on our kids. They have been putting out, but a couple of mistakes and crucial penalties have hurt us right along.

The Irish have met nowhere near the tough opposition that Garrigan has but the fact they are unbeaten in four games will make this a big one for the lo- :als. And if they expect to keep ilimbing in the state polls, a lackluster performance here Saturday would damage Garrigan's chances considerably.

The locals travel to Humboldt next Monday night for another conference tilt. They are 1-1 a- lainst conference opposition. Algona led 33-6 at the half. Rogert scored the first .ouchdown from 10 yards out Rog He said Humboldt has two big boys, 250 and 240 pounds, in the line and have the fastest player Algona has faced thus far in left halfback Ouane Mar so. They also have the conference's leading pass receiver in Desmidt. Algona's, Tom Claude is right near the top in number of receptions — he caught five, last week — but most have been for short yardage. The Bulldogs came out of the Iowa Falls game with one major injury, a shoulder separation to starting tackle Dave Camp. He'll be out for at least a week and maybe more. Reserve Mike Dreyer will take his place in the starting lineup this week. "THE FILMS showed us one thing — our execution was good against Iowa Falls. But we were caught a couple of tunes on costly infractions and we blew our signals a couple of times," Christie pointed out. "Because we don't have a lot of speed, those defensive errors cost us two touchdowns." There is still a possibility that Bill Boldridge, who has been out with a broken foot bone since early season practices, will be back soon but not this week. He has been running and strengthening his ankle, which was in a cast for four weeks, but is still not ready to rejoin the team. Game time is set for 7:45 p.m. at the Bulldog field. Christie cited end Chris Conn for outstanding play last week and the weeks before. "Chris has been doing a good job of blocking and we noted on the films, has been getting the job done on every play.
