Bulldogs Drop 13-7 Game To Eagles; Second In Loop "When we had to have the big play, whether on offense or defense, we didn't get it," in the words of Coach Jim Hershberger pretty well tells the story of the season finale at Eagle Grove Friday night. The Algona Bulldogs, trying for their seventh win against a loss, plus a solid second finish in the North Central Conference, fell 13-7 to the hepped up Eagles, who with the victory tied the locals for second. Despite losses in their final two outings, the Bulldogs had one H of a good year! Their 6-2 mark (5-2 in the loop) has only been topped once in 12 years and that by Hershberger's 7-0-1 team in 1962.

They won two or three that probably weren't expected and showed plenty of intestinal fortitude practically every game. Eagle Grove, which has had many fine defensive teams down through the years, and normally plenty of offensive strength, had just enough of each to up-end the Bulldogs Friday. The home club marched 63 yards right after the opening kick-off - and scored on a fluke ,play - due to the alertness of an unidentified Eagle end. Bruce Pauls, one of the Eagles' better players bolted from the Algona nine, was hit and fumbled at the three, but the ball took a forward hop in the end zone where it was recovered for a TD. So it was 6-0 right off the bat. It remained 6-0 until the end of the period - then until the half when a long Algona march died on the Eagle Grove eight in the second quarter. Bill Boldridge got the Bulldogs the chance when he intercepted an Eagle pass and got to the Algona 34. The Bulldogs used 14 plays in the drive, which ended with a pair of incomplete passes. The Hershbergermen got lively during the third period, traveling 70 yards in five plays to get the points that put them ahead 7-6. Mark Conn flipped a shorty to Dale Teeter who lateraled to Dave Martin, with the play netting 36 yards. After Conn got three to the Eagle 31, Glen Tschetter cut to the left and zoomed all the way for the TD. Teeter caught a Conn pass for the extra point that gave Algona the lead. However, the Eagles stormed back, this time going 67 yards in nine plays, including a 29-' yard jaunt by John Yoder, who later counted the winning touchdown on a one-yard slam. This time, Keith Sandvig got the extra point and it was 13-7. The Bulldogs drove 56 yards to the Eagle Grove 25 during a fourth quarter outburst, with Martin running like a bull, but couldn't come up with the tying and possibly winning TD. A 20- yard scamper by Rich Black of the Bulldogs was canceled by a motion penalty, another blow to Bulldog chances. Algona 10-5-1 through the past two seasons as Hershberger continues to be one of only three winning coaches here since 1930, was led all year by hard-running Martin, certainly one of the best backs in Algona's history. And he was also a top defensive player, being one of the real good tacklers in the loop. Dave, who needed 162 yards rushing Friday to. top the modern single season record, carved out 83 yards in 18 carries against the Eagles - and as a result totaled 826 yards this season. The total trails Jim Scanlan's 904 yards in 1952 - but puts him in second, ahead of a long list of outstanding ball carriers here. Martin, a state champion grappler, certainly deserves a place with great high school football players in the state this year! He also wound up with a career total of 1,410 yards also one of the top marks here.
