14 - The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wed., Sept. 27, 1972 BLOCK AMPT -- Sldney's Lee Vaale, 80, with hands up attempts to block a Glendive punt during an Eastern A tilt between the two teams Friday. Glendive won 26 - 6. Dexter Thiel, 83, was also in on the play. The Eagles racked up 350 yards against Glendive but only scored once. -- Don Mrachek Photo Glendive Tops Sidney 26-6 Sidney rolled up 350 yards against Glendive but scored only once as the Red Devils came out on top 26 - 6 in an Eastern A football clash at Glendive Friday. Quarterback Steve Baisch passed for 223 yards as the Eagles moved the ball with ease in mid-field. Sidney, however, couldn't score on three threats when they were inside the Glendive 15 - yard line. Sidney's only score came in the third quarter when Baisch carried the ball over from the Glendive 3-yard line on a quarterback sneak. The pass for the conversion failed. A pass from Baiseh to end Steve Merrill gave the Eagles a 50 yard gain and put the ball inside the Glendive 10 but the Eagles failed to'score on their longest play of the game. A 45 - yard run by halfback Don Weber set up Sidney's only scoring drive as the Eagles marched 70 yards in 6 plays for their touchdown. The-Eagles also grinded out 127 yards rushing. Baisch went 11 - 23 in the passing depart- ment. Don Weber led the Eagles rushing attack with 4 carries for 81 yards and a 20.2 average. Baisch carried the ball 8 times for 22 yards and Bill Zadow marched 20 yards in 9 carries. Ends Dexter Thiel and Steve Merrill led the Eagles in pass receiving. Thiel hauled in the ball 5 times for 92 yards and Merrill caught the ball 3 times for 93 yards. Ran Fritz collected one pass for 15 yards, Bill Zadow caught one pass for 14 yards and Don Weber hauled in a Baisch pass for a 5 yard gain. Iading the Eagles defen- sively were Ran Fritz, Ie Vaale, Roger Peterson and Kim Getchell. Sidney meets Glasgow Saturday at 7:30 p.m. to highlight their Homecoming. Glasgow was smashed by Wolf Point 53 - 6 last weekend. "We'll plan on using our psing game again," head E:gles football coach Mike Gear said. "Glasgow is quick off the line but we're both about the same size," the coach Continued. "They use only a few plays but execute them all well," Gear said, commenting on The Eagles began outside Tuesday after s drenched the Sidney area kept the team to an practice Monday night , Sports .i: :.::,: i:!: Z': iiil :::; in Season By DON MRACHEK Well I hit it again with two correct predictions and of course two wrong. Not bad when I should have had all four right. Sidney played fairly good football again but Glendive played better. At least thats the way the score showed it. The Eagles moved the ball very well in mid-field but when they got deep into Glendive territory, things fell apart. Glendive got a couple of lucky breaks and of course took advantage of them in front of their hometown crowd. The Eagles meet Glasgow this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Since it's Homecoming for the Eagles they will win. It will be their first win of the an and they rleed it for Homeconfing and morale. Fairview got literally beat up at Baker Friday'. l,oosing one of their starting backs, Doug Buxbaum(for the season the Warriors also lost the services of their quarterback Wes Erick_son for the second half of the Baker contest. He might be out for Fairview's game against Scobey this weekend at Scobey. Buxbaum suffered a broken nose in the Baker game. Something to do with an elbow although the refs didn't catch it. Even though Fairview lost to Baker in more ways than one, their young quarterback got a little experience. With that experience Fairview will beat Scobey. Scobey's starting quarterback is also out with an injury and they lost to Plen- tywood 46 - 0 last Friday. Alexander did it again. They blanked Grenora and still hold a perfect record. It's 4-0 now and they have racked up 60 points. Their opponents have not scored yet. The Comets meet Ray this Friday in their Homecoming. They survived Grenora, one of the  top- rated teams in their conference, so now they will go all the way. It will be Alex all the way against Ray. Richey lost their Homecoming game Friday but not without a great fight. The Royals pressured Brockton but not enough to stop them. Richey will have a long season this year but at least they let their opponents know they've played a football game. Richey meets Westby this weekend at Westby. I don't like the prediction but Westby will win. There have been rumors of a plan for new /4randstands at Swanson Field, The rumors aren't exactly wrong and then again they aren't exactly right. There is some research going on as to the feasability of obtaining portable bleachers, The idea is to use the portables at Moose Park, where the lights are much better than at Swanson Field. Moose Park would then 1 used for games only and Swanson Field for practice. The bleachers could also be used for baseball gam and there is hope that they could be purchased jointly by the City Park Department and the school. It's an interesting idea and conunents will be appreciated. There is no doubt that new bleachers are needed for football fans. Good luck duck hunters. Season opens Oct. 1.
