And Rich Black's 86- yard touchdown sprint in the third quarter is believed to be the longest touchdown run from scrimmage fdr Algona since World War 2. All in all, it was a happy night for a delighted crowd of local fans who came to the game knowing little about this 1967 edition of the Bulldog team but.who,went away convinced it '|s^: a /respectable group of young: men with plenty of'desire.' By far the-brightest light on this night was Rich Black, the. 170-pound senior halfback who had. never played in a varsity game but who was highly touted by coaches after '• a pre-season scrimmage two weeks ago; Black carried the ball 21 tini'es for 206 yards and scor- ed.itwo Algona touchdowns. Although not particularly fast, Rich has great running deception and will give Algona a fine outside threat this fait; ^ MONDAY NIOHT LEAGUE NO. 1 W L Old Style 7 1 Zenders 7 1 la.

The game didn't start like an- Algona rout. In fact, by the end of the first quarter, it looked just the opposite. After some early game sparring, Emmetsburg took off on its^sonly long march of the night after fielding an Algona kick on its 25. A 32-yard pass to Al Orsborn got the E-Hawks in Algona territory and another 17-yard pass plus three running gains brought .the .ball to the Algona 9. This is when the Bulldogs gave indication of their later- promise by holding and actually pushing the visitors back to the 12. Taylor ripped off nine yards as the quarter ended and Emmetsburg never knew what hit it in the second period. Algona reeled off four touchdowns in just 10 minutes. The first came on the third play of the period. TWO FINE Black runs brought the ball to the Algona 38 and then Roger Barr, starting his second year as Bulldog quarterback, bootlegged the ball beautifully to the side and had junior end Mike Beits all alone down the sidelines. Barr hit him and Betts outran the startled E-Hawk secondary for a 62-yard touchdown play with 1:15 gone in the quarter. Tim Black missed the con* ve.rsion try but he made up for it with three straight later in the period. "Lightning struck quickly as Neal Smith fell on the ensuing kickoff on the Emmetsburg 24-yard line, Rich Black ate up eight yards but a motion penalty set Algona back to the 22. Barr then kept on another bootleg and faked a pitchout to get to the three. He squirmed over two plays later on a weird play. One official signaled Algona was twr inchfi shert but when the Bulldogs lin- fd up on the two-yard lint, someone found pyt that OOf of the official! had decjar? iijj t touchdown. §o it .was 194 with 4:06 gone in the period and there was still lots of Algona actipn left. In less than two minutes Algona had another touchdown. Three plays after the kick- off, Tim Black, a younger brother of Rich, diagnosed, a screen pass beautifully zipped in to spear the ball and raced 25 yards untouched for No. 3. He kicked the goal for a 20-0 lead: ' ALGONA put together a three-first down drive of 57 yards to score its fourth touchdown with 34 seconds left in the half. Black, Taylor and Randy Riedinger took turns carrying to the E-Hawk five and on third down, Barr pitched out to Black who scored in a breeze'and it was 27-0 at the half; The ;second half was anticlimactic but fun. Taylor got his first touchdown of the season with 7:30 left in the thjrd. period.,Algona marched 59 yards cm tKis^drive ; and the Bulldogs climaxed itlu Barr tossed a'short pass-to Taylor, who fielded it on the three and scooted into the end zone. Ian Davison, the Australian exchange student attending AHS, missed the point. . Algona recovered the next kickoff, it was Tim Black who got the ball, but failed to move. Early in the fourth quarter; Rich Black electrified the crowd with that 86-yard TD gallop. Somehow, Algona refused a penalty against Emmetsburg on a kick to take the ball on the Bulldog 14. The decision was questionable but fans had little time to contemplate! the judgment as Black took a handoff and went up the' middle. He broke wide open 10 yards past the line of scrimmage and outran one lone E-Hawk defender to go all the way. His pursuer gained steadily but made a' premature lunge that failed near the Emmetsburg 25. Emmetsburg scored with 2:26 "left in the game on a pass to Gerald Wheeler from 14 yards out after a 57-yard drive.

Barr has sea- coned in a year and there are three good running back* available. The Bulldog line was also impressive, Offensive blocking by Phil Bode, Mike Dryer, Jim Utt, Steve Claud* and Don Hagen was outstanding, Some good defensive efforts were turned in by Randy Calhoun anq" Brad Farnham. Utt was probably the top lineman on this night but Farnham's name was mentioned often. By the way, Rich Black plays a lot of defense in the secondary and made some of the night's crispest tackles along with Taylor, Riedinger 'and Tim Plack.

Coach Beanie Cooper told a pep assembly before the game it would be decided in the final minutes. It was. This was a game between two good football teams and advance notices about Estherville's speedster, Dan Hood, were not incorrect. He scored three touchdowns for the home club and caught several key passes. scoring with a 65-yard dash scoring with a 65-pard dash on the third play of the game • after Garrigan kicked off. He started to his left, cut back and left the Bears in their shoes.

I A long Midget pass set * up the second home touchdown late in. the quarter '. and Hood ran it in from ' short range. The quarter ended 13-7 but the Bears went into a 14-13 half time lead after a long second period drive which featured the running of Muller and halfback Mike Schiltx. Muller went over from the seven and ran the point. Garrigan took 10 minutes to score No. 3 after starting from its 20 on the kickoff. John Mertz added some yards in this drive but mainly it was Muller up the middle and he went the final couple of yards to make it 20-13. Garrigan threw only one pass all night, an incomplete screen job. They never really needed to pass and their 'ground game was going well. Estherville started its third touchdown drive late in the third period and Mr. Hood carried in again. But the kick failed and Garrigan clung to a 20-19 advantage. Not for long. The Bears got a first down, kicked and Estherville started again.

GARRIGAN started its final drive after the kickoff and got to the Estherville 35 Where they lost it when Muller was stopped short on a fourth and two situation. There were quite a number of fans who thought Jack got the necessary yardage but the officials were not among them. The big 320-pound senior carried the ball 35 times for 155 yards and gave a preview of what Garrigan foes can expect as the season goes on. Mjke Schilt? lugged the pigskin 13 times for 69 yards Garrigan had one big casualty — Steve Erpelding, defensive halfback, broke his general use of ZIP Code. There will be a ninth card of instructions. All will be folded together like a closed ac- cordian. There will be perforations between each form.

The '-unit cost of entering the code onto each card will be less than the system used in 1986 because no lock-up will be necessary. Every card in the final post office will need the same code, so an inexperienced clerk will be able to simply stamp it on the card and send the form on its return journey.
