Seven players scored touchdowns as Webster City belted Iowa Falls, 52-6, Friday night. The Lynx were on top, 32-0. at halftime. Algona's defensive line, one of the best in this area in years, will really get a test. Two regulars weren't even suited for the Humboldt game. They were Gary Angle, guard, and Gary Rich, tackle. It is not known if they will be available for duty against Webster City. If open wounds caused by wet lime during the Iowa Falls game Sept. 23 are sufficiently healed, it is possible both will play. However, Denny Waller, regular spinback, was put out of action possibly for the rest of the season early in the second quarter of the Humboldt -game when he fractured a bone in his hand. Hershberger stated after the gamejhat he had ''lost a spark- i.ii "• Plug". The Bulldogs made the only serious threat to score during the first period when they marched to the Humboldt 36 yard line, thanks to two 19 yard runs by Steve Miller. A pass interception cut the drive short and Humboldt took over on its own 14. Algona threatened two times during the second stanza, going to the Humboldt 25, then to the 12, but couldn't find the punch to put six points on the Scoreboard. Humboldt got its chance near the end of the quarter when a fumble by the locals* was kicked upfield and recovered by the Wildcats on the Algona 47.' A pass and three running plays moved the ball to Algona's 31 where it was third and seven for the invaders. John Barsness, reserve back, faded and threw a wobbly pass to Phil Hendrickson who cut through Algona's secondary to take the throw and trot into the end zone. An attempted run for the extra point was stopped, but the visitors had all the points they needed to take the win. The second half was much like the first. Algona got to Humboldt's 31 in the third period and to the 25 in the fourth. Humboldt's deepest penetration was to the Algona 24 early in the fourth round. Statistically, the teams were about even, with the. Wildcats holding an 18 yard edge, rushing and passing. Jim Richardson was Algona's top ball carrier. He got 48 yards in 10 tries, while Dick Hoops got 32 in 11 carries for the winners.

Coach Bob Plahn's team has now scored 220 points, while holding opponents to 19 points. That's a 55-point per game average so far. The Trojans will furnish Homecoming opposition for Sentral at Sentral this Friday night in another loop contest. The Satellites dropped their fourth straight, 33-0. to a strong Armstrong team Friday. Swea City scored at least two touchdowns in each quarter on the way to its win over Thompson. Bill Hubbard, junior tailback, averaging 14 yards per carry this year, went 18 yards for the first TD in the opening minutes and the extra point made it 7-0. Jack Henrichsen slanted'12 yards off tackle for the second touchdown of the first period to make ii 13-0.

The second team plnyod quite a bit for the Trojans. Outstanding defensive men fpr the winners were Al Mather, end, Gary Larson, linebacker, and Tom Diaz, guard. Fast Backs PL( Pacelli Past Bears, A couple of the niftiest half- barks seen by area fans for several years ushered Austin Pacelli to a 31-14 decision over previously unbeaten GarriRan high school at Garrigan Field Satin-day night before a large crowd. The Bears didn't give up, however, and scored their two touchdowns after the visitors, who had been unscorod upon, had piled up a 31-0 lead. Coach Beanie Cooper's outfit will hosl a good Carroll Kuemper team during Garrigan's Hbmecoming even! at Garrigan Field this Saturday night. Kuemper edged the Bears, 12-0, in the first meeting of the two teams a year ago. Pacelli's Brian Callahan tried to break the game wide open on the first scrimmage play Saturday night. Going wide to his left, Callahan went all the way, covering 62 yards, but the play was called back due to the fact he stepped out of bounds after gaining only four yards. Neither team could do anything during the next seven minutes, but Callahan probably as swivel- hipped as any halfback around, got another chance when Garrigan punted to the Pacelli 37 yard line. He fielded the boot, skipped around and through tacklers until he had running room and went the distance, 63 yards, into the Garrigan end zone for the first six-pointer of ( the night. Mike Seery, the other half of Pacelli's vaunted running attack, got into the act midway in the second period after Garrigan had marched 54 yards to the Pacelli 29 and lost the ball. Seery scampered 55 yards to the Garrigan 16 on the first play, then after a play gained nothing, went the final 16 to make it 12-0. Gar'rigan* marchedi~ again, but lost the ball on downs on the Garrigan 45 with time remaining for two plays in the half. Seery went seven to the 38 and Bill Walker, quarterback, lofted a pass that was fielded by Callahan. and the., fancy halfback scooted the final 33 yards to make it 18-0 at halftime. Pacelli put the game on ice the first two times it got the ball in the third stanza. An intercepted pass gave the visitors the ball on Garrigan's 28 and seven plays later Callahan scored from the three. Moments later, Pacelli recovered a Garrigan fumble on the Garrigan 36 and scored in seven plays. A pass from Bill Gobursch to Maurice Joel ate up the final 11 yards. A pass from Oscar Froehlich to Lyle Loebach, who lateraled to Bill Reed, which covered 53 exciting yards, on the last play of the third period set up the Bears' first score. They ultimately lost the ball, but Pacelli fumbled, the Bears recovered on the .Pacelli eight and scored in three plays. Froehlich passed to End Bill Rahm for the final six yards. Froehlich added the extra point on an end sweep. The final TD came with about two minutes of play remaining. Another Pacelli fumble gave the Bears a chance. The loose ball was recovered on the Pacelli 40 and Garrigan scored in nine plays. Froehlich, who covered much of the distance with two keeper plays, got the TD from the one and passed to Rahm for the extra point.
