Armstrong, Sentral, Titonka Win Armstrong, Sentral and Titonka all won their State Line conference football games last Friday night with comparative ease, leaving Armstrong still in the driver's seat with a 5-0 loop record. Burt, in a non-conference game against Woden-Crystal Lake at Burt, lost by a 14-0 score. Sentral turned in the big score of the evening, taking its contest against Thompson at Sentral's Homecoming by a 54-12 score. The win leaves Sentral 5-2 for the season and in third place in the conference. Six of Sentral's TD's were scored by air. Mark Geitzenauer threw for four and Mike Lee threw for a pair. Lee scored the other TD on a 30 yard run. Thompson's two tallies came in the second half as Sentral used a plentiful supply of reserves. Titonka's Indians turned in a 40-13 conquest of Swea City, a margin that was not expected, on the Indian's home field. Ted Isebrand ran for three TD's, and Russ Sleper, Roger Akkerman and Dale Bartelt each tallied one. Tom Elliott, Swea City's backfield speedster, scored both of his team tallies with 51 and 76 yard runs, raising his total TD's for the season to 20. Titonka remains one notch behind Armstrong in the conference. Armstrong's Jim Rooney scored all three touchdowns for his team, two on passes from Al Lindell and a third on a 36-yard scamper. Armstrong remains undefeated for the season and in the loop. Woden-Crystal Lake won its first game of the season at Burt, 14-0, despite valiant efforts on the part of Burt's thin squad of players. Bill Cink ran for one TD and passed to Phil Olson for the other. STATE LINE CONFERENCE Sentral 54, Thompson 12 Titonka 40, Swea City 13 Armstrong 19, L-Central 0 Woden-C.

Upper Des Main**- Tuesday, October 26, 1965 Rugged defensive line play that allowed Rolfe minus 21 yards in the first half and hard running by Jim Collins and Roger Clark were the combining forces that paced Twin Rivers to a 13-2 romp on a rain-soaked field at Rolfe Wednesday night in a Twin Lakes Conference game. The victory gives Coach Bob Algoe's Pirates a 3-2-1 Twin Lakes Conference mark. Rolfe now-stands at 1-4-1 in the conference. Playing conditions couldn't have been worse as driving rain and cold winds forced both teams to stay on the ground, Rolfe did not pick up a first down in the first half, The Pirates' offense provided the defense with all the margin they needed on the first play of the game. Collins received the opening kickoff at the Twin Rivers' 35-yard line and sloshed 65 yards into the watery end zone. It seemed as if the Rams had found a leak in the Twin Rivers defense at the start of the second half when Don Van Gorkom nearly broke loose before he was brought down after a 19-yard jaunt. Halfback Roger Bennett then raced 24 yards on a counter to Twin Rivers' 32-yard line where the Rams had their second first down of the night. However, the Pirates began to stiffen and regained the ball after a 10-yard punt to the Twin Rivers' 29, Big end Steve DeGroote caught two passes for 31 yards in key plays as Twin Rivers drove to Rolfe's 19-yard line, Then Doug Logue powered for 11 yards to the eight-yard line where the Pirates had first and goal. Four plays later, Logue cracked over from the one, carrying two Rams with him into the end zone. Rolfe counted its only points on the final play of the game when Clark was tackled in his own end zone.
