;;"•»' WOW!

The J game also marked the debut of ', Algona's new coach, Jim Hcrsh- ' berger, who with the team « gave the fans what he promised | — "hard-nose football." | Despite the fine showing of i Ihe locals in the opener, « ' which brought about a rush | A by fans and students on to . * the gridiron at the final gun • and a big shouting demonstration by a large crowd at the high school when the bus load of players returned to town after the game, the | Bulldogs will have their ', hands full when they travel • Io Clarion for a North Cent' ral Conference game this , Friday night. • Clarion dropped a 13-6 decision | 'io Belmond Friaay night as the . -Broncos scored the winning TD | ;on a pass when the final buzzer , 'sounded.

J ; The Algona-Emmetsburg tuss- • le was a dandy that found most J fans with their heart's in their i mouths most of the night. Basically a defensive struggle, '"two offensive plays proved to be v the deciding factors. One set up ;'* Algona's first touchdown and the .." other was a 48-yard pass play >•. that ultimately settled the issue, "once and for all.. -.- If anything, Algona was out•^ manned in the game. The E- .T Hawks threw every trick in the •• book at the Bulldogs, and at ^ times, with great success. But s-. the locals usually had the ability ^"•to buckle down and halt the ^numerous threats. '' "''" '-' The first half was scoreless, ,. and, except for one Emmetsburg «move to Algona's 17-yard line, ,; featured no serious threats. I- The picture was changed dras- I'tically within 4:08 of the third ^period's start. v That was the first time Al;; gona got its hands on the ball . after the intermission. The Bull'^dogs had the ball on their own '^.41 after receiving an Emmets- t burg punt. Steve Miller, fullback, '.[crashed into the line for five «-yards to set the stage for top . .offensive play number one. Gary •.-Peer, tailback, took a handoff ^rom Miller, swung wide to the -. left and zipped downfield 44 ^yards before being dragged down '"Jon the E-Hawks 10.

The locals kicked off and were ^ into position for top offensive- play number two a little more than four» minutes later. ;jThey _iad the, ball on the E,-Hawk 48 after a short punt. Den- ^ny Waller, in as a replacement '-for Miller, faded back, saw Peer •as a "moving target 20 yards '^downfield, and let fire with a jstrike.

Sentral Drops 19-0 Decision In Home Opener Sentral's offense couldn't get rolling against Kanwaha Friday night and the visitors walked away with a 19-0 win in the first Satellite home game in history. Pla'y was not dominated entirely by Kanawha, however, as Sentral failed to capitalize on at least two scoring opportunities during the night. The Satellites will travel to Lake Park this Friday night for a meeting with Lake Park in another non-loop tussle. Lake Park dropped a 25-7 decision to Garrigan of Algona in its opener Friday night. Roger Rutter proved to be the deciding factor in the Kanawha- Sentral contest. He accounted for all points scored during the night. ye, w/mt 75 yards for a touchdown on the third play of the game, and while nobody knew it at the time, decided the issue then and there. The score remained 6-0 at haiftime.. Rutter took over again in the :hird period. He took a pass from Baker and scooted 62 yards before he was dragged down short of the Sentral end zone, then smashed for three yards to make it 12-0. He got the last TD on a three-yard pass from Baker and ran for the extra point to run the count to 19-0 in the fourth period. Sentral recovered a Kanawha fumble on the winners' 20 yard line in the second stanza and moved the ball to the five, but lost the ball on downs. A pas? from Dale Hainzinger to Daryl Preston gave Sentral another chance, but the home club just couldn't budge the good defensive Kanawha club near the goal line. Sentral's dcicnse was also good in the fray.

Froehlich rolled out and hit Bill Rahm in the end zone with an 18-yard pitch tor six points in the third period to make it 19-7.

According to Cooper and Assistant Coach Leon Vann, the blocking and tackling of both teams was improved over the opener between the schools a year ago. Cooper named Bill Higgins, guard, and Kinsey and Murphy as his best defensive players, while Bob Reed proved to be the best running back on the field.

Renwick Friday night in the season opener for the teams. The Indians, who hadn't measured Boone Valley for three years, will get their first taste of State Line Conference activity this Friday night when they host Thompson on the new football field at Titonka. Thompson dropped a 33-0 decision to Buffalo Center Friday mgnt in a game, which, according to fans, was much closer than the score indicated.

In the second period, Boone Valley moved to Titonka's seven, but George Cunningham intercepted a pass to halt the threat. Statistically, the first half belonged to Boone Valley, just as the second half belonged to Titonka. Titonka marched to the Renwick club's 17 yard line in the third stanza, but a penalty halted the drive. Moments later, Titonka had the ball on its own 43 and in 12 plays put the first six points of the game on the sc&ftta, ^^ pass from Qu^RrtiB !rinnr'Monsort-to Dyerg Krantz ate up 11 important yards 'during thi? drive. .-'' Monson passed to Maurice Satr lioff for the score. The try for point after touchdown was no good. A Boone Valley march to Titonka's 32 yard line misfired when the home ciub fumbled in the fourth period. Rod Hensch, fullback, went up the middle and into the clear for 68 yards and the second Titonka TD on the first play. Phil Seaberg plunged for the extra point thai ran the count to 13-0.

State Bulldogs Hit 'Em Again Tha Photo above shows two of the major rea.ont, blocking and determination, Algona's Bull. dogs were able to snap a 26-games losing string at Emmetsburg in the season opener for both clubs Friday night. Almost half of the large crowd at the game went to Emmetsburg from Algona to support the locals and get a first loon at new Coach Jim Hershberger. And they liked what they saw. The unidentified Bulldog on the ground, left, got a partial block on the E-Hawk making a grab for Gary Peer, right, while the latter lowers his head and blasts into the two waiting tuck- lers, getting an'extra two or three yards for his effort. The play occurred during the first half of the game, which ended with the Bulldogs on top, 12-7. ' E-Hawks, in light jerseys, shown, include End Dick Gecrtsema, left, End John Allbaugh (58), background, and Ron Mullen, halfback (26). Hustle, determination and pretty fair blocking and tackling ushered the Bulldogs to the win. (AHS Camera Club Photo — UDM Engraving). Trojans proved to be too much for Terril to handle. After Hubbard zipped 48 yards for a touchdown on the first running play of the game, the winners had little trouble belting out the verdict. He later added another TD on a 20 yard scamper. Snyder, one of tnc top ground gainers and total offense leaders in the entire state a year ago, went .10, one and 30 yards for touchdowns, and like Hubbard, added an extra point. All in all, Snyder ran for 130 yards and hit five of nine passes' attempted Tor 64 yards — a total of 194 yards for the night's work.
