LaPorte City used a large variety of defenses in an attempt to stop the defending champions but all was for naught as the Raiders simply ran and passed through the Rams weak spots. This marked the third time in 3 row that Ackley had beaten LaPorte by a 19-O score. Dale Kreimeyer led p the line to its best performance in l the first four games. ACKLEY 32 TEACHERS HIGH 13 The tone was set on the first play as Gordon Ploeger raced 76 yards to the first touchdown. As it turned out, the Raiders scored three touch- downs on their first four offensive plays and everyone on the squad put in a lot of time on the college field The varsity played only about one- third of the game Duane Hosch high lighted the offensive show with some beautiful downfield blocking The line slay of Ryken, Muller, Steding, and Kreimeyer accounted for much of the Raiders dominance over the Little Tutors John Schafer ACKLEY 39 JESUP lb Homecom1ng'!' The Raiders set some kind of a record when they reeled off two touchdowns in less t an two minutes DeBerg ran 50 yards for the first and Fedge passedto Wolf for the second But that wasn't all!

A goal-line stand in the last quarter proved that the Ackley defense was ready. Ploeger did some beautiful power running, accounting for two of the Baider's T D's. Wolf scored the final touchdown on a pass from Fedge. ACKLEY 35 ELDORA 7 The stands were filled, the weather was crisp, and Ackley had its best night on Friday, October 28. when the fireworks had subsided there wasn't any joy in the hearts of the Eldora rooters for the Raiders from Ackley had swept everything the home club was able to offer right off the field. It was figured to be a close game. Both teams were tied for the top of the league with perfect 6-O marks It was the championship game DeBerg scored twice in the first quarter, then Wolf in the second, Ploeger in the third, and DeBerg again in the fourth Fedge converted five times But it wasn't the backfield that broke this one open it was the fury of the line play which constantly forced Eldora into the hole or pro duced a fumble or tore the line to shreds The names of Krelmeyer, Hosch Devries, Muller, Byken, Schafer, Sted ing, Frerichs and Benschoter will long be remembered when fans look back on the Eldora game of 1955 Yes, if Ach ley ever had a finer night, it would be hard to remember when Jack Wessels ACKLEY 0 GREENE O Still gloating over the success of the preceding Friday, the Raiders met an aggressive team from Greene which was primed to get revenge for the bl O pasting received the year before Greene, champion of the Corn Bowl Conference, got to the nine and the Raiders got to the two yard line, but neither team had what it took to put the ball over the line Duane Hosch Dlcx Devrtes Larry Hofmann Lester Muller This page sponsored by B L PBOBASCO, DENTIST 55 O O . . 0 l .
