While a pair of sophomores were brought up and used extensively last season Fertile and Wright the Ironwood coach sees Bill Inch 6-2 Sophomore As the Only potential Sophomore promotion at this time. How Ever Inch has been suffering with a leg injury and when he comes Back will probably be assigned to work with the Junior varsity until his presence is needed on the varsity. The Ironwood coach foresees a conference race in which six teams May play out the season looking up at Superior Cathe dral s tall veterans in them a standing. With nine Letterman including four starters and a sixth Man from last year s co runners up the panthers of coach Steve Bachand Are unanimous favourites of Loop men tors. Ashland s champions look somewhat deflated with four starters lost via graduation losses in manpower that were matched by those suffered by the Wakefield cardinals the other second place team last year. Meanwhile last placers Bessemer and Maple each have four starters returning including top scorers and the fourth and fifth place clubs. Hurley and Ironwood each have a full five of experienced Letterman available. Coach Peterson believes the key to the Ironwood season lies in the first four games on the slate with Hurley in the j. E. Murphy gym opener on nov. 22 Wakefield at Home on nov. 26 at Maple on dec. 3 and a time Date with Bessemer on dec. 6. All four of these my first round tilts shape up As even matches and the red Dev ils Are hoping for better than an even break. Peterson and his assistant Bob Vaara who coaches the Junior varsity squad have been working toward a smooth working unit that can score As Well As play defense and hold its own on the boards. A performance somewhat along the Ines of that in the near upset of powerful Iron River in the District finals last Spring would be an Ideal goal they feel. An eruption of hot scoring in the Inal minutes was All that saved the redskins on that occasion it will be remembered. The 16-game Ironwood Cage schedule includes four powerful non conference opponents Han Ock Calumet West Iron coun a and Ishpeming. These foor exhibitions Are considered in the red Devil Camp to be important reparation for the tournament rail next Spring with the main objective being Victory in the 12-game my slate.

Depoyster missed three Field goals and although two were from far out the third was a 25-yarder. Schmidt said some changes would be made. But so far Depoyster is still the Lions no. 1 kicker. Depoyster will do Che kick ing As far As we know right a Lions spokesman said. Cypriot kicker Garo Yeprem Ian who was Detroit s kicker last year is still on the taxi squad and has not been activated. But he has worked out with the team All week and could be called on to do the kicking. Another possibility is linebacker Wayne Walker who has been Detroit s extra Point Field goal and Kickoff Man in years past. Schmidt said he would decide just before the 4 . Kickoff time who would handle the kicking chores. Meanwhile it was announced that Denis Moore will Start at defensive end in place of Joe Rabb who is out for the season with a knee injury.
