The loss was th fourth straight for the Bears an the win gave Columbus a 2-2 marl for the year. The Bears will travel to Em- tnetsburg Saturday night in search of victory number one. Coach Hcnnie Cooper's team will be facing an outfit, Emmetsburg Catholic, that rallied in the last half to post a 1918 victory over previously unbeaten Hoone Valley Saturday night. The Bears downed Catholic here last fall. Fine defensive play marked Sat urday night's game with Colum bus. The Waterloo team employ ed its defense to set up or score all points in the game. Interception Sets Threat Garrigan posed the only serious offensive threat during the first period after Bob Schneider, quarterback who was seeing action for the first time since the season opener at Dowling, intercepted a Columbus pass on the Waterloo 48 and returned it to the 45. A 15-yard penalty moved th ball to the 30 and Bill Hall, sopho more halfback, chalked up eigh yards to the 22. A couple of losses later, Columbus took over on its own 27. Garrigan got to the Col umbus 44 at the end of the firs period and marched to the 40 early in the second quarter before giving up the ball on a short punt. Columbus couldn't gain, but the Sailors recovered a Garrigan fumble on the Garrigan 39 yard line moments later and appeared to be headed for a touchdown. The drive was stalled on the Garrigan 10 yard line when Chuck Tragord fumbled. Columbus Tallies Safety A pair of losses shoved Garrigan back to its own three yard line and the center snap on a punt attempt went over the would- be kicker's head out of the end zone for the first two points of the game. Columbus threatened to score just before halftime, but the Garrigan line halted the march on the Bears' 12 yard line. Columbus got another chance soon after the start of the third period when Garrigan failed to get a punt off and marched from the Garrigan 40 to the seven before Dick Stoulil of the Bears picked up a fumble on the 13. In three plays Garrigan moved the ball out to the 42, but the slippery ball got away again and Columbus went to work from the 50. Two plays moved the ball to the 37 at the end of the third Stanza.

Upper Des Moines Tuesday, October 9, 1962 of the fourth period made it second arid 11 for the visitors on the 38. Jeff Gray, quarterback, flipped a^short jump pass to Tim Johnson, end, and the latter squirted from the grasp of a cot pie of Bears as he went all th way to chalk up six points, run for the extra point was thwar ed and Columbus was on top, 8-( An intercepted pass thtyarted Garrigan march downfield a/te the ensuing kick-off, but Colum bus got another shot at a TD moments later when Schneide was dropped on the Garrigan 32 as he attempted to launch a fourth down pass. A penalty put the ball on the 35 tolumbus then employed a tricky three-man-wide offensive line-up and sent John Jasper the other way for a 35-yard touchdown. This time, a pass for the extra point went astray and Columbus led, 14-0. Garrigan's best offensive display of the night followed the kick-off, but time ran out when HaJl galloped 22 yards to the Columbus 15 on the final play of the game. The drive covered a total of 56 yards in 10 plays. The Bears, who are playing a rugged schedule with an injury- >lagued line-up, did a respectable ob on defense, with Paul Seiler, Jail, Schneider, Studer, Froehlich and Stoulil showing the way. The defensive play of Columbus upset the blocking of the Bears much of the time and Schneider wasn't given much of an opportunity to get started on his option play. Studer Bangs 50 Yards Studer banged away at the middle of the Columbus line 12 times and wound up as Garrigan's top ball carrier with 56 yards. Hall, making his first start in place oi injured Tom Hudspeth, rattled off 37 yards in six attempts and Froehlich managed to get 35 yards in 11 tries. Jasper proved to be Waterloo's leader with 73 yards on the ground. Gray ran for 31 yards and passed for 46 during the night. Rain dampened the proceedings throughout the first half and made the field slick all night.
