The Linn-Mar coach had just watched his young Lions demolish Western Dubuque Friday night 53-0 and the first-year boss was heaping praise everywhere. “I really don’t know where to start,” smiled McCoy, whose team ripped off 451 yards on the ground and added another 142 along the airways. “The kids rebounded from our disappointing loss to LaSalle very well. They just came to play, but our defense was su|>erb and we limited them to under 50 yards in total offense.” The exact number was 44 coach. The same amount that the Bobcats mustered in the first half. Now 1-7, the Jim Killbreath-coached Western Dubuque club, in its second year of varsity play, didn’t complete a pass and garnered a meager yield of four first downs (two of those came via penalty). The tempo of the contest was established early when Linn-Mar sailed 54 yards in four quick bursts for a TD on the opening series of downs. AII four plays netted first downs (the Lions wound up with 32 for the game) and Steve Van Slyke capped the drive with the first of his three touchdowns on a 13-yard scamper.

McCoy added: “Von used the audible at the line of scrimmage for the first time this year and really made some big play calls. “That, and the fact that Western gave us the short side of field were the two key factors in our offensive effort. I don’t think we ran to our split end side ail night." The Lions arr 7-1 and also got big rushing efforts from juniors Brian Barnes and Mark Lamb.
