JIMUTT TOM JONES Algona prepares I for Homecoming Clarion game A year ago, the Keith Chris\ tie household was a somewhat dreary place on Sunday. He had just completed his first • head football coaching job with the Algona high school Bulldogs and his charges had lost 6-0. Last Sunday it was so different — and so much gayer. Dad's Bulldogs had dismantled Emmetsburg in the season opener 39-7 on the home field to start off the 1967 season on a far happier note. i A And the Bulldogs looked ( good in doing it. Christie summed it up best by saying: , .."This was a team effort in -every sense of the word. Our • kids played hard and were in 'much better condition than Emmetsburg," he added. E- Hawk coach Clint Stille_echo-.., led \Christie's commen't^oni • ? both : -counts. '" ; ' " w - -•TV*-*, ITj-t ? NJOW TrtE-JOB will be to prepare the Bulldogs for their «conference opener with Clarion which also happens to be • Homecoming here .Friday eve- ^ning at^Sipim. • • "Thisj;is a crucial game for ;us," Christie reported this week. "A win could start us on a .line; season — a ; loss would-make' the. Emmetsburg win not nearly as impressive." Clarion will be no patsy -' report scouts Don Camenisch and Lynn Kueck, who • watched the Cowboys be- v come Belmond's 33rd straight football victim, 7-4 last Friday. : They reported Clarion has eight starters back from last year's defensive team. The Cowboys edged Algona 13-6 in .the last nine seconds a year ago but this is nothing new. Some weird things have happened in the Algona-CIarion series the past few campaigns and they always seem to break wrong for the locals. ! But back to last week's big win. "WE WERE well pleased offensively," Christie said. "Our execution was good and we eliminated, lots of offensive mistakes that had showed up in two earlier scrimmages." Christie added that the defense, which gave up 15 first downs to the E-Hawks, will gets its Share of work this week He praised the offensive backfield and said that the Bulldogs have a "full" backfield this fall. "Last year, all we could do was run up the middle, We tried the wide stuff but we just couldn't make it work. Black (Rich) has made a big difference and Riedinger and Taylor will help us a great >deal. Randy didn't run too much Friday but he did some fine blocking." Probably one of the happiest surprises Friday was the work of quarterback Roger Barr, starting his second year as head of the Bulldog corps. He was something less than spectacular last year. "Roger did a fine job for us last week and has shown iKfatg iftprAyeiitient,"? Christie addecL, He threw two touchdown passes and ran for another. There was no doubt the goalline stand in the latter stages of the first quarter when Algona held the visitors on the 9-yard line was a great ; morale booster "That was the turning 'point, I guess," Christie said. 'VETERAN Algona coach Champ/ Martin claimed that Rich Black's 86-yard fourth quarter touchdown run was the longest scrimmage scoring play he recalls in 20 years of coaching here. It was strictly a dive play but the Bulldogs caught the Emmetsburg line stunting and a couple of rlownfield blocks sprung him loose quickly. The race to the goalline was almost a comical one as the Emmetsburg defender used up about 20 yards clutching vainly at the back of Black's jersey before finally breaking stride and falling behind. Christie had praise for his entire team, but 'cited Tom Jones and Jim Utt for their offensive blocking and Tim ALGONA LANES PRO SHOP FOIAUVOUI BOWLING NEEDS BALLS IA'GS" SHQiS~ BOWJNG INSTRUCTIONS STOP IMiT ACQUAINTED iff IINORiAIIV AFTERNOONS QR EVENINQS '•• ' ' AT C ' ALGONA LANES NORTH MAIN STREET-ALQQNA The strike has struck us... but we'll be showing you the NEW 1968 Fords, Mercurys and Lincolns on FRIDAY, Sept. 22 There's a strike on as if you didn't know and it has hit us where it hurts, when it hurts the most — at new car show time.
