BULLDOGS BEARS LOSE IN OPENERS AHS Blocking Good; Waller Sets New Mark By Don Smith, Jr. A fine exhibition of blocking, which allowed spinback 'Tom Waller to set a new single game offensive standard, plus a very tight last-half defensive display, allowed the Algona Bulldogs to bounce Emmetsburg's E-Hawks, 27- , at Emmetsburg Friday night in the season opener for both schools. It was a non-conference contest. Coach Jim Hershberger's single wing outfit will host Humboldt's Wildcats in the first North Central Conference game of the season at the new high school football field in the southeast part of town here Friday night. The Wildcats, who hare a big team as usual, brushed Twin Rivers aside. 19-0. in their season opener Friday night and appear to have a fine team. Emmetsburg's quick - moving team jolted the Bulldogs with a lightning-like thrust on the first play freCT scrimmage, but from tnat tizae cc. the locals were in charge. Putting ;be ball in play on the E-Hawi; 33 fclkttrmg the opening kidE-««. a» booe club left little doub* as to ::s potential. Bill Rauhauser. halfback and track star, sprinted behind the Algona sec ondary. grabbed a short pass from Bob Drew, quarterback, on the 50 yard line and dashed into the Algona end zone to put his team on top, 6-0. Drew fumbled the ball on the extra point attempt and the Bulldogs closed the door on him. Spurred into comeback action, Waller and Co. went to work. Firing from a well-protected area, he found halfback Bill Wetzel downfield on the first play following the kick-off and hit him with a 34-yard pass that put the ball on Ihe Emmelsburg 27. Rich Hutchins and Waller then took turns whacking out short yardage to the 10. A one yard pass fa Jack Williams was followed by three more sorties by Hutchuis and Waller, and the latter slammed over the goal line from the one to tie the count. His place kick, with Mike \Vickliff holding, was good and Algona took a 7-6 lead. Algona halted an Emmetsburg march on the Bulldog 25 shortly before the end of the first period and the locals got underway and headed for their second TD. Hershberger's men had to fight for this one. They were penalized a total of 35 yards along the way. but each time managed to come up with the long gainer that kept the drive moving. Two passes from Waller to Williams, whc seems to be as glue-fingered as any Algona end in many a moon ate up 17 and 18 yards, respective ly, and from the E-Hawk 31, the same pair connected on a touch down pass. Williams snagged the ball on the eight and rambled to six points. Waller again split the uprights to make it 14-6. That ended the first half scor ing, although Emmetsburg threat cned twice before intermission time. The best demonstration of block ing by an Algona team in man; years moved the Bulldogs to ; quick TD in the third period. The) received the kick-off, and with the line knocking huge chunks out o the E-Hawk forward wall and Waller and Hutchins carrying tlv mail, moved to the Emmetsburg 25 from the Algona 14 in eigh 4-Alflona (Id.) Upper Dot Moine*Tuesday, September 18, 1962 plays. A Waller-to-Wetzel lateral, used to advantage several times found Wetzel getting to the four and Waller then crashed home for the six points. His third straight extra point boot made it 21-6 with seven minutes left in the third stanza. After holding Emmetsburg to no gain near midfield, the Bulldogs put together another march that petered out when a Waller pas? was intercepted by an alert E Hawk in the end zone. Getting underway from their own 29 following a penalty on the first play in the fourth quarter Algona got to Emmetsburg's 25 with Waller and Wetzel biting off big chunks of ground, before another 15-yard penalty forced p punt from the 37. The E-Hawks obliged by fumbling the punt and Algona used f six-yard penalty and three short runs by Waller, the last for two yards, to run the count to 27-6. This time, the extra point attempt failed after the Bulldogs were penalized for delay of game. Drew led Emmetsburg on a final des- paration march, but the Bulldogs smothered the drive on the Algona 12 and took over just before the final gun. There were plenty of Algona stars in this one — and the contest marked the first for a long time when it was impossible to spot anyone loafing. Waller was the stick of dynamite that seemed to ignite the rest of- the bomb. He praised his blockers in the locker room after setting a new single game recort 1 for yardage gained. He contributed 2-12 yards rushing in 31 attempts and passed for 104 more hitting six of eight, to amass 346 yards during the night. Hutchin? and Wetzel got 51 yards between them. The play of Denny Helmke Dick Pratt, Paul Smith, Mike Kain, Gary Kelley, who came ou' of the game with a beautiful shiner, Williams, Maynard Shackelford and Bill Specht in the line and Wetzel, Hutchins and Doug Barr in the backfield. was backed up by the rest of the 24 men who suited for the game. Others who gave a good account of themselves were Bob Garms, Bob Pratt, Mike Wickliff, Jim Abbott, Larry flel- mers, Tom Teeter, Willie Steinman, Bruce Sundet, Tom Burtis Bruce McCullough, Denny Miller and Dave Skogstrom. There was no lack of hustle anywhere. Statistics: A E First downs 15 8 Passes attempted .. 8 6 Passes completed . 6. 3 Yds. passing . 104 96 Passes int. by . 1 1 KO — Ave 5-3H.2 2-38.

St. John's Is Diocese Champ In Baseball St. .John's of Bancroft and Hemsen scored all their runs in the final inning as the Johnnies grabbed a 5-4 win that gave them the Diocesan championship at Pocahontas Wednesday. Prior to the seventh, the contest was a pitchers' duel between Chuck Hattcn of St. John's and Ahrnarin of Kemsen. Neither had allowed a run until Kemsen came up with what appeared to be the game-winning rally, a 4-run out burst in the top of the seventh. The Kemsen rally seemed to ignite the Johnnies who managed to score five limes in the last of Ihc seventh lo grub the crown. Hatten and Ahmann each allowed five hits and the Keinsen hurl- tr had a lu-H edge in strikeouts. The only error in the contest was by hemsen. The Mo- City, 7-7, in their opener last Friday. The Mohawks will have one regular, Ken Kalahar, guard, sitting it out for three weeks. He fractured a bone in his hand in the opener. Coach Beanie Cooper's Bears chewed Dowling up into little pieces during the early going Pri- ' day. Starting from their own 28 yard line following the opening kickoff, the Bears needed only 10 plays and three minutes of playing time to take a 7-0 lead. Jim Nitchals, Steve Studer and Schneider took turns carrying the mail and moved to the Dowling 45. Schneider then scooted 44 yards on a quarterback bootlep and Nitchals slammed over from the one on the next play. Brian Atherton booted the extra point to make it 7-0. ' After holding Dowling, t h e Bears started another offensive march. This one began from the Garrigan 20. Studer, Nitchals and Schneider, took turrts and within a few plays had the ball on the Garrigan • 45. Schneider running hl§ faVorite bootleg again, went 35 yards to the Dowling.20, but suffered the injury that will keep him out at least three weeks when he was tackled, and went to the sidelines. The Bears couldn't score without him. Dowling's Mike Triplett, a real speedster all night, scored for the home club just before the end of the first period to make it 7-6. Bob Randall counted a TD for Dowling three minutes before the end of the half to make it 13-7 and V* winners never trailed again. Triplett got away on an end sweep to run the count to 20-7 in the third stanza, but the Bears came back and got their final TD in the fourth quarter. Studer went eight yards for the score after Lee Froehllch had scampered 30 yaids With a screen pass from John Goecke, who was filling in for Schneider. Cooper stated after the game that he felt Schneider's injury definitely cost the Bears a victory. He gave young Goecke, a junior with no varsity experience, a lot of credit for the way he stepped into the gap and ran the team. The club moved better with the more experienced Schneider al the throttle during the early going. Some of the work in drills this week will be concentrated on the quarterback post. Cooper said he had three outstanding offensive players in the game, Schneider, Nitchals and Dean Grandgenett, guard. He also gave Froehlich, a halfback and Louie Heinen, tackle, a pat on the back fense. for their work on de- Burt Opens Its Season With 33-6 Defeat Terry Cook scored a touchdown in the final period to avert a shutout as Burt dropped a 33-6 decision to Ventura at Burt Friday night in the season opener for both schools.

Ventura counted single touchdowns in the first, second and third quarters and capped its scoring with a pair of TDs in the final v stanza. David Graham counted three times for the winners and Alan Monson and Dwight Aitchison scored one TD apiece. Monson added a pair o( extra points and Graham one. CARSON'S ! !
