Nugent ran real well according to Coach Walsh and Rich Eischen did a fine job in the line. Garrigan led at the half, 140. This was the first game of the season for the spohomores and the JV's and sophomores are now 3-1 for the season. GRIP GUESSERS CONTEST ; / Merrill Welker led the peck lest week in the Advance Football Contest es he was the only one of hundreds of entrants to miss just two games and if that wasn't enough, he picked Notre Dame's 56 points right on the button. So he ended up in first place and won the $7.00 cash first priie. Second place went to Alta Lowman of Grand Prairie, Texas with three misses and a 52-point guess. And third prize was shared by Jean Goff of Louisville, Ky. and Al Slobe of Algona — each getting e check for $1.50. They missed three games and guessed 46 to be the high points. Also missing three games but ending just out of the money was Dave Everds of Allison. Missing four games were Tony Muehe, Wesley; Bob Slobe, Knoxville; and Mrs. Merrill Walker, Dave Hanselman and Jim Bradford, all of Algona. A large number of confer* ants wore in the five, six and seven miss classes. On the Mourner's Bench with 13 misses of the 22 games was Mrs. C. Haase, Algona. Another weekly contest appeared in Monday's Advance. Algona high school gets its third crack alt the North Central Conference title in the past six football campaigns here Friday night when the Bulldogs take qn perennial champion .Webster City in a showdown battle of unbeaten teams. Providing the weather warms up somewhat, the season's biggest crowd is expected to see the two clubs battle for the confer* ence lead and quite probably the loop title. The winner will emerge with a 4-0 slate and have a full-game jump on the rest of the pack. The teams have met with the title at stake two previous times with local fans preferring to recall the more distant of the two meetings. That was back in 1962 when a gallant band of Bulldogs played what quite probably was the finest night of football in modern history at Webster City to w,in the title, 19-14. BOTH CLUBS had 6-game unbeaten strings two years ago when they met here but the results were far different. The Lynx rolled up a 40-6 victory and there was little doubt Algona was outclassed that night. No one thinks that is true this year although the Bulldogs will go into the game from one to two touchdown underdogs. Both teams routed Iowa Falls by 33 points but Algona barely nosed out Humboldt last week 13-12 while the Lynx took a 4-touchdown win, 27-0 just a week before. Still, there are a lot of folks down at Humboldt that think Algona has a chance in this one. We hope they are right. The rugged Bulldog defense held Humboldt to just two first downs during the night and only 53 yards on the ground after a 60-yard run on the second play of the game gave Humboldt its first touchdown! MEANWHILE, Algona rushed for 246 yards but quarterback Roger Barr couldn't complete a one of five passes. Linebacker Geoff Michaelson of Humboldt was all that was expected of him. He made 24 tackles and handled his 215 pounds well. Still, Algona got fine blocking from Mike Dreyer on the big guy. Other line standouts were Steve Claude, Jim Utt and Phil Bode, who played his first full game on defense. Randy Calhoun, the junior who has been doing most of the defensive work ahead of Bode, has been hampered by a knee injury. Randy Riedinger ran well for the Bulldogs, picking up 130 yards in 20 tries. He just keeps getting better and better. Atgona scouts Don Camenisch- and Lynn Kueck reported Webster City has a fine football team but said Algona has a good chance if they play up to their capabilities. "We know that this is a good Webster team butNve also know they are not unbeatable," Coach Christie said Sunday. They play ball control but they don't use the quick huddle anymore. They've got.speed in Tim Me- kinney and Andy Lake and Osboe is a tough fullback." THE LYNX showed nothing more * than basics in demolishing Ipwa Falls last week, 33-0. They led 14-0 at the quarter and coasted. Iowa Falls moved the ball some, which would be encouraging to Algona fans. Webster City will pass infrequently but their.passer is not bad and they throw mostly to a big wingback. Rich Black, injured in the Clarion game three weeks ago, has shown little improvement with a back injury and is not expected to play any this week unless his back shows big improvement. Besides Black, the Bulldogs will be in top physical condition for the game. There is something about the desire and determination of this team that indicates an Algona victory Frf day would not be far-fetched. It's sure they'll give 100% effort in going after it. #. # # QUOTABLE QUOTE: Coach Wayne Bergstrom of Clarion had these words to say about the North Central Conference race the other day: "Algona's a good club. In the second half when we played them, they took us apart like the old Webster City teams did when they had Frank Reinhart at fullback," he said. "I think Algona's got a good shot at the conference title."

Coupled with the 6-6 tie between Thompson and Swea City, the Satellites emerged from the weekend activity as the only unbeaten team in the league although Thompson and the Trojans have each been tied but not beaten in league play. Sentral could eliminate • Swea City this week from title consideration with a win at Swea City but a Trojan win would throw the race into a Win in final two minutes on safety Garrigan's Bears got back on the winning track Saturday night as they used the seldom-scored safety to delight a Homecoming crowd with a 9-7 win over St. Edmond's of Fort Dodge. The win was a far-cry from the lopsided victory posted by the Bears a year ago at Fort Dodge but it was a welcome priie to a chilled and soggy group of fans that turned out to watch the game. The game was tied at 7-7 when Garrigan got its two- pointer with 2:10 left on the clock. .The Gaels were punting from their own 19 when the snap from center sailed over the head of Tom Magennis. The Gael kicker chased the ball back into the end zone, picked it up and started to run it out but was tackled by the alert Dave McCarthy for the two points. GARRIGAN dominated the game, rolling up more than twice as many first downs and led in the statistics. But the visitors had a good club as represented by their 2-1 record coming into the game and were far from patsies. The Bears scored first midway in che first period as Jack Muller and Mike Schiltz marched the ball down the field. Garrigan advanced the ball to the Gael 20-yard line on their first drive which died. The second march went 46 yards in 10 plays with Muller going the final two yards and adding the point with a line plunge. So with four minutes left in the first period, Garrigan had. a 7-0 margin and when Jerry Piathe blocked a Gael punt shortly after on the St. Ed 19, it looked like smooth- sailing. This jvjst wasn't to be true on this night. THE »EAR$ got as far as the two yard line but ended on the eight. And then the visitors struck quickly. JOE DETRICK "Made lots of tackles" Joe Cahill took a handoff from the seven-yard line and slid off several tackier* and outran the Bear secondary for a spectacular 93-yard touchdown dash. That run alone kept < Bear fans on the edge of their seats the rest of the night The conversion was good as Cahill plunged and it remained 7-7 after that second period TD with 9:29 left in the first half. St. Ed's marched twice into Garrigan territory in the final quarter. They were stopped on the 20 on downs and later went to the 28 before losing the ball on their fourth fumble of the night. Garrigan threatened again in the second quarter after recovering a fumble on the Gael 15 and moved to the seven before the drive fizzled. In all, there were seven MIKE SCHILTZ "His best running night" fumbles on this cold and wet evening and three of them were by Garrigan. There were very few passes thrown. St. Edmond's didn't complete a pass in five attempts while Garrigan was three-for-seven but only for 15 yards. A sidelight on the game was the death of the mother of varsity assistant coach Bill Roethler of Fort Dodge just a few hours before the game in a crash north of Fort Dodge. THE BEARS now lead the series six wins to three. Garrigan rushed for 218 yards on this night and that was more than St. Edmond's first three •opponents could muster together. So next up for Garrigan is Emmetsburg Catholic and it appears Garrigan has its best chance yet of advancing past the .500 mark. Emmetsburg has won three of its first four games but its foes are of a poorer calibre than Garrigan's. Garrigan got some fine efforts in the win. Kevin O'Brien did an excellent job on defense as he has all season and Mike Schiltz did some of his best running of the season. He picked up 82 yards in 17 carries for a 4.8 average while Muller was bagging 81 yards in 29 tries. Schiltz, incidentally, was crowned "King" of the Homecoming festivities after a student vote so he had quite an evening indeed. Also turning in notable performances were Steve Youv ngwirth and Joe Detrick. Only casualty of the night was quarterback Tom Black, who wrenched a knee in the third quarter when he was tackled but played the rest of the game, Coach Beanie Coo- per said Black's knee was badly swollen Saturday and he might miss a few practices •early in the week but was expected to be ready for the game Friday. "THIS WAS the best game we've seen St. Edmond's play all season so we are quite proud to post the win," Cooper said after the game. . He didn't indicate this was his team's best performance however. The game this week will be at Emmetsburg at 8 p.m. Friday. The Irish won their third game in four starts by smashing Mallard 46-20 last Satur day. Three Irish players scored two touchdowns each.

They got a 6-yard touchdown run by Owen Korber and then Bob Bicrle caught touchdown passes of 19 and 25 yards thrown by Jim Geitzenaucr. The fourth Sentral marker was on a 17-yard run by Jerry Nerem. The latter also scored on three extra point runs while Geitzenaucr ran for the fourth point. Coach Hanson cited Terry Brekke and Jim Bollig for fine defensive play with 15 tackles each and also lauded the work of Joel Priebe with 13 tackles. For the season, Nerem has now amassed 483 yards on 68 rushes for a fancy 7.1 yard per carry average.

The Bullpups, coached by Lynn Kueck and Don Camon- isch, -dominated the first half and Humboldt ran only six plays until 2 ! /fe minutes were left in the first half. They marched deep into Algona territory before being stopped at the first half gun. Meanwhile Algona led 7-0 at the intermission after a lengthy march. Rany Bleich put the ball in the end zone from the two-yard line and Steve Willrett did the same on the point try. Algona scored again in the third period when Duane Hunt plunged two yards to score and Willrett picked up an Algona fumble and ran eight yards for the final TD. Humboldt didn't threaten in the second half. The locals have won three games and tied the fourth, 0-0 with Clarion. They'll travel to Webster City next Monday night for their fifth game.
