'•'. The victory was dimmed by injury to aco running back Rich Black, who sustained a back injury that took him from the action lato in th* first half and kept him on the .bench the rest of the game. Black; who has never played more than a game or two because of previous injuries, could bo lost for the season. But on this night, his absence wasn't missed a great deal as his teammates took up the slack with bruising defensive line play and sparkling offensive maneuvers. Outplayed the first half, Algona struck suddenly with 34 seconds left on the clock after Randy Riedinger's fumble recovery^on- the: Algona~25 blunted a Clarion touchdown effort. ; FIRST Riedinger burst thru the line for 15 yards to the 40 to eat up 13 of those valuable seconds. Next Mike Betts, inserted in the left half slot for the injured Black, zigzagged upfield for 34 yards on a brilliant run which carried to the Clarion 26 with 11 seconds left. Then quarterback Roger Barr faded and ,got fine pro; toction as ho found Gregg Allen goallirio bound along the north sideline*. He tossed beautifully into the end sono. The Clarion defender lost his balance in the final second and fell as Allen gathered in the precious cargo with just six seconds left in the first half. Betts tried to run the point but was belted down short of the goal. Clarion had dominated the first half to such an extent that Algona had never reached Cowboy territory after the opening minutes and didn't make a first down until six minutes were left in the half. The Bulldogs got good field position right from the start when Rich Black returned a Clarion punt to the Cowboy 35. But nothing seemed to work in those early minutes and a clipping penalty on another kick return pushed,Algona back into its own territory. OFFSIDE penalties plagued Algona all night with at least 10 called on the Bulldogs. One was a bitter pill, too, midway in the quarter when Barr threw to Betts for an 80-yard touchdown pass which was called back. < Clarion drove to the Algona 10-yard line early in the second quarter but never returned to that favored land again this night. The Cowboys got as far as the 25 when Riedinger recovered that fumble and Algona was on Us way. Clarion got the first four first downs of the night and then Algona reeled off ten straight to dominate the third and'fourth quarters. The Bulldogs took the second half kickoff, punted and then got the ball again when Don Hagen fell on a Clarion fumble.

But a short Clarion kick put Algona back on the Cowboy 33 and this time the Bulldogs went for real. Barr and Betts ran for a first down to the 21 and then Riedinger took off on a 21 yard scoring run that was the sweetest of all this night. . HE WAS JARRED and knocked 'off balance twice before regaining his stride and going over with :12 left in the third quarter. The point kick was .wide by Tim Black but there wasn't any more scoring. Algona got to the Calrion nine yard line midway in the fourth period and was back on the eight-yard line when Tim Black intercepted a Clarion lateral on the Clarion 40- yard line and was finally brought down from behind on the three. THE BULLDOGS never scored though. Riedinger was never better as he ran for 113 yards on 16 carries, all but one of those runs in the second half. But the big plays seemed to be turned in up front where the Bulldog line did another fine job of containing the ground efforts of its opponent. Jim Utt was the name most frequently mentioned during the night, This 185-pounder has turned into one of the best tackles Algona has had in years, And then there were Don Hagen, Tom Jones, Mike Dreyer, Randy Calhoun, Brad Farnham, Phil Bode and others, who contributed greatly to this one, Betts was valuable in the backfield after Black's departure and will probably be switched to the backfield permanently if Black is out for any length of time..
