The win, which added luster to iTomecqming festivities, put thti locals in a sixth place tie in the loop. Coach Jim Hcrshberger's outfit, happy over the lopsided victory, got down to the serious business of preparing for an Invasion by a good Hampton team this week. Hampton, despite a 39-0 loss to a potent Webster City team Friday night, will bring a fine 5-1 record to the fairgrounds lhi> week. A win by the locals would move them another notch or two up the loop fodder. At the present time, Hampton is tied for second in the conference. Clear Lake dumped Iowa Falls, 32-0, and Clarion romped past Humboldt, 38-0, in other loop i'rays Friday.

After receiving the opening kiekoff, ,it took' only three plays for the locals to put the first six points on the scoreboard. Wet/.el scampered the final 31 yards after he and Steve Miller had covered 15 yards in one carry apiece. Three consecutive five yard penalties- on Eagle Grove got the drive, started. Miller's run for the point after failed. The next TD came with 10 minutes gone in the first period. This time, the locals scored twice to get six points. Gary Peer went 37 yards, lout a penalty cancelled the counter and Miller finally wound up getting tne touchdown on an eight yard blast. He and V/clzcl again shared ball-carrying duties on the 05 yard march. This time Peer ran for the extra point. Algona threatened again in the second period and dually a piins from Wctzcl to Bob Percival covered 34 yards for six points A penalty erased this one, and the half ended with the Bulldogs on top, 13-0. It was apparent at halflimc that the Bulldogs wanted the win, but fans had no idea the final tolal would hit 47 points, Algona had the ball three times in the third, and scored touchdowns twice, The first time a blocked kick iurnished the opportunity. The ball bounced to the Eagle Grove four yard line and was kicked into the end zone by an Algona lineman. A 15 yard penalty resulted, putting the ball on the Eagle Glove 19. Five plays later, Miller went the final seven yards for the second of his four TDs durir./c the night. Peer ran Ihe extra point to make it 20-0. A pass interception by Denny Waller of the Bulldogs set up the next TD. He almost got away after grabbing the bull on the Eagle Grove 2f), but was dragged down on the 17. It took five plays, with Miller going the last two yards, to score. Wetx.el added the extra point to give the Bulldogs a 27-0 three-quarter lead. Peel started the fourth quarter scoring spree when he went 31 yards on the first iunning play of the period. Miller added Uv- extra point. A partially-blocked punt set up UK/ next one. Peer went 17 yards to the Eagle Grove five and Miller went the distance in two plays for TD number six. Wetze' added the extra point and it was 41-0. Wetzel put the finishing touches on' the I'oul as he zoomed 28 yards on an end sweep with 2'_ minutes of play ifinaining. Besides turning «i a top offensive show, the locals were stingy, as usual, on defense, limiting Eagle Grove to just nine yards on the ground un« 47 on passes, while rolling up 309 yards during the night. The line was especiallj hot blocking kicks, knocking down three of six attempted by the losers. Offensively, Wetzel was top man. He gained 106 yards in 12 tries, an average of 8.9 yards, and completed 1 ond oi two passes for another 21 yards.

The Trojans, chalking up their sixth straight win without 'a defeat, had been tied with Armstrong and Titon- kn at the top oL' the loop. Titonka played a non-conference game with Kanawha Friday. Another top conference game is on tap this Friday night when the Trojans entertain Titonka, also unbeaten through six games this season. The contest should settle the loop championship once and for all. Coach Bob Hahn's 'Trojans. who were supposed to have a tough time with Armstrong, won handily as several backs shared the offensive load. Bill Hubbard counted two TDs. lie. scampered 4!i .yards for one and 10 yards for the other. Jim Elliott shot 26 yards for a TD and Gary Snyder slammed two yards for a six-pointer. Snyde-r tossed parses to Jack Hendricksen foi the other two touchdowns. One covered 40 yards, the other 12. Armstrong's scoring came- early- and late.

A pair of second quarter touchdowns ushered unbeaten Titonka to a 12-6 win over Kanawha a/ Titonka Friday night. The win was the sixth straight for Coach Lyle Opheim's crew.

Titonka didn't have an easy time with Kanawha. The teams played on even terms through vanced to Titonka's 27 yard line and Titonka got to Kanawiia's 40 for the deepest penetrations of enemy sod by eacn team. The Indians marched 43 yards in 11 plays for their first TD in the second stanza. Dennis Monson, quarterback, counted the six points on a sneak to make it 6-0 after Rod Hench set up the touchdown with several important gains. Don Gigler, linebacker, provided Titonka's winning edge when he intercepted a Kanawha pass and zoomed 38 yards to score later in the period. Titonka began another scoring drive in the third period, but fumbled and Kanawha threatened, only to lose the ball on the Titonka 25. A short punt gave Kanawha another chance when the invaders got the ball on the Titonka 28.

Tin- win, following two consecutive- losses, gave Coach l-.canic Conner's hard-running outfit a 4-_ won-lost record for the year. The Bears have got their work cut out lor tnem this week. They will lake a long trip to Marshalltown Friday for a meeting wiln a tougu St. Mary's team. St. Mary s has chalked up a 3-2 record so far, featuring one of the top passing attacks in central Iowa. Garrigan is healthy, however, so the bears should give Marshalltown all . it wants in the way of battle. Neither team could get a lengthy march goin B early in the Garrigan-Emmetsburg Catholic contest. Defensive play of tin- two clubs was orulal at times, and with the exception of Dick Heinen, Garrigan fullback, none of the backs could manage much yardage. In fact, Emmetsburg wound up with minus rushing yardage through the first half. Garrigan threatened a couple of times during the second round that followed scoreless action during the first 12 minutes. The punch necessary to score touchdowns was missing until late in the second periocJ. John Fandel who turned in his best game to date for the Bears, finally put six points on the scoreooard when he dashed 18 yards for a TD. Oscar Froeh'lich added the extra point to make it 7-0 at haiftime. A long Garrigan: march deep into Catholic territory ended with a fumble on the Emmetsburg two yard line early in the third period. Catholic attempted two plays and couldn't move. The third play produced Garrigan's .second TD. Defensive end Phil Kinsey latched on to a lose- ly handled ball in the Emmetsburg backfield and went four yards into the end zone to male? it 13-0.
