Hampton downed Iowa Falls, 32 to 13, and Hampton goes to Webster City this coming Friday night in what will probably be the conference championship game. Algona gave an excellent account of itself the first half, which ended with Webster City leading, 7 to 0. It was a loije offensive thrust around the Lynx right end shortly after the kickoff that tallied lor the victors. Webster City kicked off, Algona was forced to punt in return, and on the second play Scott circled the end for a TD from the 30 yard line. Ades kicHed the first of five successful goal attempts and Webster City had the winning margin. Algona came back with a mixture of passes and running plays that penetrated to the Lynx 40, the highlight being a Miller to Percival pass for 20 yards. Near the end of the quarter Algona had a break when Wetzel recovered a WC fumble. Richarcl- son made it a first down around right end, as the quarter ended. Play see-sawed, with each team gaining a little ground, but the Algona line at this sjage was outplaying the Lynx. Then toward the closing minutes of the half, Peer recovered a WC fumble on their 20 and the best scoring chance for the Bulldogs opened up. Webster City finally stopped a Bulldog drive on its own 15, however, bu,t got off a poor punt, and Algona took over on the WC .41. Three unsucess- ful passes and a running play ended the half, however. What happened between halves isn't known. bu| Web- . ster C|ty was a different team. Whereas Algona.tallied four first" downs to WC three in the first half, it "wasn't true in |he second half. After Algona kicked off, a few plays later Reinhardt sprinted to the Algona 35 yard line, and Scott took it the rest of the way. The kick was good. Webster City 14, Algona 0. Algona received, was forced to kick, and a few plays later Reinhardt took off for the third TD. The kick was good. Funk returned the next kickoff to the Algona 30, but WC held. Peer's kick was downed on the Lynx 12, but Webster City started another march from there with two consecutive first downs as the third quarter ended, 21 to 0. Kennedy hit his left end for 30 yards, and Berg tore loose for another TD. The Kick was good, 28 to 0. Streit handled 'the next kickoff, and returned to the 30. An Algona pass was intercepted, and a few pjays later Kennedy a sophomore., again slashed off hi 8 left end for the twa,! TL. Both teams, with plentiful sub* stitutions, battled the remaining few minors pn even terrns. The Welter City team did not outweigh'Algona, but it possessed plenty pf speed and a good supply of backs, Algona's line played a stout game. Tom Qou* ge's kickQffs, were good, hut gona was forced into a defer roll most pf the njsht. The tors wound up wljh H fjrgt downs, while Aliflnj hjg only one |n the second half.

The defeat spoiled Garrigan's Homecoming celebration. The Bears, who now have a 3-2 season record, will travel to Emmetsburg for a meeting with Catholic thii Friday night. Emmetsburg Catholic, one of the top teams in this area a year ago. has come along fast since dropping its first two games this year, and is again a powerful outfit. Garrigan dropped a 32-14 decision, to Catholic a year ago. Mistakes cost Garrigan the Kuemper game. Two fumbles and three intercepted passes let the visitors halt all but one Garrigan march during the fray. An intercepted pass midway in the first period gave Kuemper its first chance to score. Steve Macke grabbed the pass, thrown by Oscar Froehlich, -n the Carrol 39 and he returned it to the Garrigan 42. Jerry Gehling, Kuem per's top back all night, went 18 yards for the TD on the eighth play. A place kick attempt fail ed, so the visitors led, 6-0.

Coach Beanie Cooper's club got another chance moments later when a fourth down Kuempei pass failed to make the necessary the extra point to make it 20-6 at halftime. The Bears wouldn't be denied after getting their hands on the ball at the start of the second half. Starting frpm their own 13, it took them only eight plays to go the distance. Dick Heinen, who proved instrumental, along with the Reed twins, in carrying the ball downfield, smashef for the TD from the two. Bob Reed got the point after touchdown on a slant play to make it 20-7. Garrigan threatened twice more during the contest, but couldn't' cross the final stripe.
