Sigma Nu Drops Dents 19-13
In IM Football Title Game
Dents Lead 7-0 At Half; Force Sig Nu Rally
Friday afternoon the Sigma
Nu football team copped the
all-University I.M. champion
ship by edging the Dents 19-13.
Once again Yogi Hergenra
der showed his mastery of the
art of forward passing and
alertness. The Snakes also
showed they have the ability
to come from behind.
Dents Score First
The Dents scored first on a
short pass from tailback Phil
Eyan to Mike Edwards. The
extra point was good on a
pass from Eyen to Ron Noel.
This concluded the scoring
in the first half as the Sigma
Nu Seven couldn't provide a
scoring punch.
The second half opened up
with a fired up Siea Nu ball
club, marching 54 yards in
five plays. The TD.came on
a 15 yard pass from Hergen
rader to Dud Walker. Her
genrader then passed to Bob

Hergenrader Goes 40
Ths Dents took over on their
15 and were forced to p u n t
after three passes went
array. Eyen punted to the Sig
ma Nu 20 where the ball took
a Sigma Nu bounce. The
Dents thinking the t!I dead
stood in amazement as Her
genrader scoooped up the pig
skin and raced 40 yards to
paydirt. The try for extra
point was not good.
The Dent's wasted little
time in making it a new ball
game as they scored on a pass
from Eyen to Noel. Eyen then
completed a pass to Edwards,
but he later was stopped on
the one foot line.
After exchanging the ball
the Snakes found themselves
deep in there own territory
with time running out. On the
first play Hergenrader tossed
a short pass to blocking back

play, a 19-14 decision to Sigma
Phi Epsilon early in October.
They then rolled over most of
their opponents enroute to
the title. Their closest call
was a 6-0 squeek past Beta
Theta Pi.
Betas Runnerups
The near upset of Sigma
Nu boosted the Beta's into
second place on the c h a r t.
They finished undefeated in
a tough 2-A league. Although
they did not score heavily,
their defense was the tightest
in the M setup.
The Dent's could have been
rated higher had they played
a more complete schedule.
They reached the finals by
winning five games including
a couple of forfeits.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon won
3-A league laurels and w.s

til blowing up against Sigma
Nu 26-0.
Defending Champs Drop
In fifth place is the two
time champion Sig Ep's. They
were the only team to beat
Sigma Nu, but they couldn't
quite turn the trick in tour
ney play. They lost 15-13. A
couple of close calls to weak
opposition earlier in the sea
son cost the Sig Ep's a high
Jerry Levy who picked up a
first down. On the next play
Sullivan found Tom Mathews
in the end zone, but Mathews
couldn't find the handle.
Winning Score
Things looked bad for the
Sigma Nu team. Hergenrader
faded back and hit Sullivan
on the five who went into the
end zone. The extra po i n t
failed, but it was all over ex
cept for the shouting.
With the completion of the
last TD pass, Hergenrader
topped off a season with 32
touchdown passes and ran for
four himself.
Special praise should be
given to the fine defensive
team employed by Sigma Nu.
Among the outstanding were,
Wally Wilson, Ace Holsher,
Jin Hergenrader, Cracker
Wagner, Vera Olson, and Ed

Hitchcock, the dorm
champs, Phi Kappa Psi, who
scared the Beta's 0-1, Gus
II, the dorm's second best
team, Sigma Alpha Mu, the
all-fraternity runncrup, and
Beta Sigma Psi, whose only
loss was a one-point decision
to the Sammies round out the
top ten roster.
Notes on Homecoming . . .
All the houses came through
in fine style with their dis
plays despite attacks by van
dals. The decorations were big
and flashy just opposite of
the football team.
It seems to me that bread-and-butter
football is for the
heavy, fast teams, and that
the teams that do not fall into
that category should revert to
a more razzle-dazzle syle of

reporter watching everything

big disappointment and still
made a happy ending for the
1958 Homecoming.
However, some people were
not so happy after the week
end of festivities. Win Smith

when she bashed against the
sidewalk. A couple of her sor
ority sisters suffered blood
poisoning from cuts inflicted
by chicken wire.
