FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1961 THE OBSERVER PAGE II e e / O ,4 ROBERT A. WILLEMS The six diocesan high school grid teams spl~t evenly in pigskin play last weekend with three vie- tories and three defeats. End re- sult of the gridiron battles was not at all equal, however, for Aquin was definitely eliminated from the Stephenson conference race while Newman Clinched at least a tie for the Illowa chum- pionship. Taking laurels in the seventh round of the season were Marian which dumped Mundelein, 7-6; Marmion, which thumped St. Ed- ward, 27-6; and Newman, which rocketed over Fulton, 27-0. On the debit side of the scoring column, Aquin lost to Galena, 27-20; Boy- fan stumbled at Harlem 14-13; and, as previously noted, St. Ed- ward howed to Marmion. Aim at .500 Mark That brings four of the teams to the last start of the season and win or lose they all deserve a round of applause for their hard work and competitive spirit. Among those gridders closing the season this weekend are the Aquin Bulldogs of Freeport who will face Lena,-Winslow Saturday on the Bulldog field. A win in this contest will not put the Aquinites back in the running for the Stephenson loop title but it will give them a .500 mark for the season. close contest to Harlem Thursday and in so doing suffered their first defeat of the season against a sophomore team. The big factor in this battle was the point af- ter touchdown, which the Titans failed to make after a score by John Ellis in the final minutes of play. The other Boylan score came in the second quarter on a 60-yard run by Rich Vella. The unbeaten Huskies chalked up their markers in the first period on a 55-yard pass and in the last quarter on a two-yard plunge. The Titans of Rockford face their final opponent for the sea- son Saturday at Woodstock whet they go against the Marian sophs at 6:15 p.m. Battling Cadets Also playing in the last game of the season Saturday will be the Marmion Cadets of Aurora who enter the field against Im- maculate Conception of Elmhurst at Elmhurst. And it will be a battling Cadet team that takes the field that day, fresh from a victory over St. Edward of Elgin. In that game, the Marmionites trounced the Green Wave 27-6 starting their attack with lightning speed when Cadet left halfback Mike Close took the kickoff on his own 14 and ripped through it faces Notre Dame of Niles at Niles Friday. In other weekend contests, the Marian Hurricanes and the New- man Comets' posted wins to main- tain their neck and neck race for the top position among the dio- cesan highs, with records of 7-1. Maintain Race Marian held its position" by jumping back on the victory wag- on at the expense of Mundelien in a dose 7-6 contest which saw the Hurricanes score in the last quar- ter. The Newmanites kept their string of wins intact by trouncing Fulton 27-0. The Comet scores came on a pass and a run in the first period, a 70-yard run in the second quarter, and a pass in the final period. In contests this week, Marian takes the field against Campion of Prairie du Chien, Wis at 6 p.m. Saturday at Woodstock, and New- man challenges St. Mary of Clin- ton at Sterling today.
