The second quarter was a stalemate with several exchanges of punts and neither team able to move the ball. Tim Black recovered a Humboldt fumble during this period to help contain the Wildcats. A BIG PLAY of the game came in the third quarter when Randy Riedinger, who ran well all evening, broke loose for a 48-yard run over right tackle to move the ball inside the Humboldt 10 yard line. On the next play Mike Betts took it over for the tying points, and Tim Black kicked what proved to be the deciding point of the game. Algona dominated the 4th quarter play, and threatened to score after Roger Barr recovered a Humboldt fumble on the Wildcat 29 yard line, but Humboldt threw up a tough defense and took over on the 13 yard line.
