Garrigan Bows To Wahlert, 13-0 Stout Dubuque Team Greeted Homecomers Garrigan's Golden Bears ran headlong into a rock-ribbed Dubuque Wahlert defense here Saturday night and came out on the short end of a 13-0 contest before a huge Homecoming crowd which saw Shirley Helmer crowned Queen during halftime ceremonies. Coach Beanie Cooper's club, seeking to up its season mark from 1-3-1, hits the road this weekend after three consecutive home games, traveling to Carroll and a meeting with Kuemper Friday night. Wahlert had to put together two short scoring marches to overcome the Bears Saturday night - with Garrigan's defensive unit again proving to be very rugged. However, the Bears were not able to move consistently on offense, so the visitors were able to post a win. The Eagles put together a long drive, starting from their own 11 early in the first period, but were thwarted after getting to the Garrigan 2 5 when Dick Bleich, who was later crowned Homecoming King, intercepted a pass on the Garrigan 20 and carried it back 11 yards. Early in the second round, Wahlert had the ball at midfield and launched a long pass. The receiver was apparently In the clear near the Garrigan 20 and about to make a catch for a certain TD when Chuck Geilenfeld came through with a defensive gem, barely getting a hand on the ball and knocking it down. The play forced a Wahlert punt - and it was a dandy, rolling to the Bears' two. The Bears picked up a first down, with Bleich and Geilenfeld carrying the ball to the 13, but a loss and two incomplete passes forced a punt and Wahlert, after an 11- yard return, had the ball on Garrigan's 32. Very little time remained in the half, and it took the Eagles just eight plays, mostly into the middle of the line, plus a penalty on the locals, to get on the Scoreboard. John Herkes, who did most of the work, smacked the final two yards for the TD and when Terry Trieweiler booted the extra point, it was 7-0. Only a minute remained in the half, but that was plenty of time for Bleich to furnish a few thrills. First, he grabbed the kick-off on the Garrigan 18 - and zoomed 40 yards to the Wahlert 42. A couple of j times, he nearly got** away, but not quite. Then he took a little flare pass from Bill Milder behind the line and threaded to the 25 before he was knocked down. Two plays • later, he took a similar pass and zig-zagged to the 14 before an incomplete pass ended the half. The Bears were out- gained 81-47 by the visitors during the first half, getting 30 yards passing and 17 on the ground. Both defenses were rugged during the third stanza, and as a result play was near midfield until Don Apel of the Eagles intercepted a Milder toss on his own 25. Apel zipped 43 yards to Garrigan's 32 - actually setting up the final TD of the night. Tuesday, Oct. 12, 1965 Alfiona, (la.) Upper De* Molne* Sentral Grinds Out 14-13 Victory At ILJpperDesMoinesf SPORTS In two plays at the end of the quarter, Mike Gabriel got to the Garrigan 20. Gabriel then went to the 17, but a 15-yard penalty pushed the Invaders back to the Garrigan 32, but Herkes got nine of It back. With a fourth down on the 23, Pat Fury hit Duane Kaiser with a pass down the middle and the big end went In for the score. The pass was the first completed by the Eagles in the game. This time, the kick was no good. Garrigan's offense sputtered until late In the contest, when Bleich once again thrilled the crowd. He got his chance after Jack Muller intercepted a Wahlert pass on the Garrigan 38. The Bears lost seven yards in two plays, but on third down, a shortie from Milder to Bleich paid off - and the little speedster almost went the distance. He was finally dropped on the Wahlert 38 after skipping through would-be tacklers for what seemed like an eternity. An 11-yard flip to Don Potthoff put the ball on the 27 - but three consecutive long losses killed Garrigan's chances for a tally. Garrigan got 47 yards through the air during the final half, but lost 40 on the ground, so netted only seven yards in 24 minutes of action. The Eagles gained 115 yards in the half. Bleich was the only member of the Garrigan backfield to wind up with plus yardage on the ground. He battled his way for 28 yards in 14 tries. Herkes got 67 yards in 14 carries and Gabriel 56 in 13 trips to lead the winners. Garrigan's defense was sound enough, but Wahlert's was just too stiff for the Bear offense to dent - at least for yardage needed for touchdown marches.
