They say baseball Is a game of inches but you could say, the same about football too after witnessing Aloona't valiant bid for a big upset. The Bulldogs came so closo so many times to key touchdowns but got only one, late in the third quarter. Meanwhile, the Lynx steamroller, not as powerful as in some years but mighty good on this night, rolled up 452 yards on the ground with a 'balanced attack of brawn and speed. The Lynx deserved to win this one but the Bulldogs deserved a better fate. They didn't have the Friday the 13th hex on them, maybe, but it seemed as if this wasn't their night to get the key breaks. THIS WAS a rugged football game and despite the tremendous line play on both sides, neither team lost the ball on fumbles or intercepted passes. In fact, there was only one fumble in the game and that was recovered by the Lynx ball carrier at the time, Tim Shelton. w*t • side \ Thi* young man thorn in thf 'Bu 4all night ^p*ny in 1 Ouro and halfback Tim Me- Kinn*y. If there was one single factor that won the game for the visitors it was their speed. They had so much and Algona/ had so little. Algona was never overmatched in determination and they showed that by scoring their lone TD after Mr. McKinney split the middle of the Algona line and raced 82 yards for the second Lynx marker to make it 13-0. One Algona drive was stopped on the Lynx 18 but the Bulldogs came back quickly after taking over on a punt on the Lynx 40. First quarterback Roger Barr tossed a beautiful pass to Greg Allen who fielded it and fell out of bounds on the WC seven. Then Dandy Randy Riedinger burst through center and stumbled into the end ion*. This we* th* first touchdown scored against Webster City in conference K 'iy this Mason. Tim ack's kick for the point was wide but Algena was back in it 134 with fust SS seconds left in the third quarter. Sixty-six seconds later and the Bulldogs were finished. A 15-yard personal foul against Algona followed the kickoff and the Lynx had the ball on the Algona 48, ON THI first play of the final quarter, Duro circled end on a quarterback keeper and steamed over the goal, It was 20-6 with 11 seconds gone in the 4th period. That should ; have been the final score and would have been except for a questionable (?) touchdown call midway in the final peri* od, Webster City moved from its own 48 to the Algona five where a personal foul penalty pushed the Lynx back to the Algona 21, Duro kept the ball twice for seven yards each and then threw a pass to Shelton in the end zone. .

WIBSTIR CITY took th< opening kickoff and it wai shades of the old days as the; powered off Algona's left tac We for 3, 6, 17 and 10 yard; to the Bulldog's 23. But then they found what this 1M7 Algona toam was made of. Two plays gain* od |ust a couple of yards and Riodlngor knifed In to throw Duro for a three-yard loss. A fourth down pass gained Just two and Algona took over. Now starts some of these heartbreaking "inch" situa tions. Algona got nine yards in two plays and then Larry Taylor squirted off on a 26- yard jaunt that almost went the distance. This "closeness" was bad enough but when Barr's heave to Mike Betts carried all the way to the Lynx 15, only to be nullified by an offside penalty, Algona fans' hearts certainly must have missed a beat or two. Algona finally had to kick and what a Job Tim Black did on his boots. This one went to the Webster City 10 but later he kicked out of bounds on the two-yard line, another was grounded on the WC three and still another pushed the Lynx back to their five. THIS TIME, Webster City ate up four first downs and got to the Algona 38 before a fourth and one plunge fell short. Riedinger shot up the middle for 22 yards and Algona was on the Lynx 37. Riedinger gained a couple and then another close one. Barr tossed to Betts on the WC five-yard line. A couple of inches farther and it would have been a TD. The pass was deflected and if it had been just a couple of inches closer tor Betts, 'he'd have still grabbed the wobby ball but his .F* vt- ..i? v* "?» •• •_ *»d desperation lunge fell short. Black kicked to the WC 4£ and now the Lynx got going. Big ground-gainer was Me- Kinney's 32 yard burst but the most devastating was Duro's 39-yard touchdown jaunt on a keeper. There was 9:20 left in the first half when he went in and Shelton kicked his first of three points. Here comes still another close one. Barr hit Betts on a screen pass and the latter cut across the field and almost went all the way. But Shelton wouldn't take a sideline hip fake and he made the tackle. Although the play gained 35 yards, the drive never got past Webster's 33.

Garrigan had three of its first five touchdowns taken away on a variety of penalties. But six pass- interceptions and a fumbl* gave Garrigan excellent field position in th* g«m*, particularly in th* second half. SPORTS Dave McCarthy krtifed through the line killed this flurry. JACK MULLeR didn't oar- ry the ball -once in the first quarter as Coach Beanie Cooper attempted to set up an outside running threat. He was only partially successful. Garrigan got its best first half drive going midway in the second period, after Tom Black intercepted a Irish pass at midfield. Mike Schiltz raced away 2ft yards and then on third down from the 17-yard line, Jack Muller caught an apparent touchdown pass but it was nullified on an illegal motion penalty. The Bears gave up the ball this time but Jerry Plathe jumped on an Irish fumble on the Emmetsburg 30-yard line and Garrigan had a, nother chance. Muller and Schiltz got a first down on the 16 and then Tom Froehlich tossed a touchdown pass to Phil Richtcr with 90 seconds left in the half. It would have been a touchdown, that is, but a 15-yard penalty put Garrigan back to the 31 and they co tldn't get past the 15 after three passes fell to the ground. Dave McCarthy speared two Irish passes while Jack Muller, Kevin O'Brien, John Winkel and Tom Black got one each. Garrigan held Emmetsburg to just 75 yards gained and only five first downs. The Irish, got only two first downs after the opening quarter. Still this was a hard-fought game which ended 0-0 at the half. Then the Bears exploded in the second half. Pen- nalties hurt Garrigan the entire night with 95 yards walked off in seven penalties and all but one was for 15 yards. It seemed you couldn't tell a friend from a foe if you didn't look at his shirt. THE FIRST quarter was a kicking dual. After three exchanges, Garrigan got its first 15-yard penalty for holding and even a Tom Froeh- lioh to Jack Muller pass of 21 yards couldn't make up the difference. Garrigan lost the ball on the Emmetsburg 42 and the Irish put together two first downs for their only scoring threat of the night Another 15-yarder helped them along but the drive died on the Garrigan 20. Emmetsburg intercepted its ctily pass of the night late in the first quarter when Jim Kliegl speared a Tom Froehlich aerial but a 14-yard loss by quarterback Brennan when ItliniHIMIHIinMIIIMIIIHIMHHIHIl MHMMHMIMIIIMMMHIMHi Punt, pass and winners THIS TIME, Black kicked out on the Webster City two- yard line. It must be said that Algona had fine field position all night and Black's kicking kept WC in hot water much of the time. Algona started a flurry of excitement after the next punt, starting on the Lynx 47. Barr, Betts and Riedinger got a first down on the WC 37 and Taylor and Betts teamed for another on the WC 26. Greg Allen speared a 14- yard pass on the WC 26 with time running out but a fourth down pass on, a "shotgun" lineup fell harmlessly to the ground and the half ended 7-0. Those Lynx knew they were in a ballgame by now. Algona moved for two firat downs after taking the second half kickoff but a 13-yard loss killed the rally and Black kicked to Webster City, Now comes probably the most crucial play of the game. Shofton fioldod th* ball an his five and ran back into his and sent attempting to find claar sailing, Algona's Stove CUudo dov« for the tackle that would havt give* Akjana a witty (two poin»») and mined by inch*. Thort's that wvn | ,. gain. As it was Shelton got out to only his five but had Algona got the safety, Webster City would have kicked from its 20 and certainly the Bulldogs would have hid the balQ at midfield and closer. A touchdown it that point would have put them ahead. Ai it was, Duro ran for 13 and then McKinney shot through the Bulldog line and outraced Bete to the goalline for in g*-y*r4 touchdown m ?r. That m»d^ it H-O with BEANIE COOPER had h : s charged fired up to start the second half and Garrigan went 57 yards after the kickoff to break the ice. Jack Muller's raturn to the 43 started it off and then Muller and Schiltz carried to the Irish 30. Froehlich passed to Muller for 16 yards and on (second down with 8:29, Froehlich passed to John Winkel. Winkol took th* ball on th* on* and stepped over— and look Ma, no flags. Schiltz ran the point to make it 7-0. Garrigan got another TD in just 31 seconds. On th* first play after th* kickoff, Winkel intercepted a Bronnan pass and went 40 yards for a touchdown. Muller kicked th* point and th* Bears were horn* safe. Kevin O'Brien intercepted another' Irish 'pass and M\U1- er didvriheHsajne with '.5:45 left in the game. Starting from the Irish 35, Garrigan had a third touchdown called back when Muller waited in the end zone for a touchdown pass that was nullified by a holding penalty. McCarthy speared another wayward Irish pass with 3:18 left in the game and this time it set up a marker. Schiltz went four yards to the Irish 30 and Winkel caught a touchdown pass with 2:24 left. Schiltz ran the point for a 20-0 lead. MCCARTHY made his second interception ort the second play after the kickoff and returned to the Ernmets* burg 25. A 17-yard pass and a pass interference penalty put the ball on the two-yard line and Schiltz carried it in for the touchdown with less than a minute on the clock. Froohlich passed to Black for the point to make at 27-0. Next up for Garrigan is powerful Carroll Kuemper next Friday night at Carroll, and then the Bears come home for two Saturday night games against Gahlen of Lc- Mars and Newman of Mason City.

LISSER YOUNG men would have called it quits but not this Algona team. They got that TD back with 55 seconds left in the 3rd quarter but the Lynx scored again and it was all over but that tainted TD in the final period. This was no rout by any means. It might have beet except for young warriors (ike Tom Jones, Jim Utt, Don Hagen, Phil Bode and some others up in the line. They gave everything they had. So did Betts, Riedinger, Barr and Taylor along with Tim Black in the secondary. Like the Red Sox in baseball, they were overmatched, they went down fighting for. every inch of, ground. Oh no, not that word — it brings up bad memories- SO NOW the Bulldogs must bring themselves up from the floor for the next three games. This will be a big job for the coaching staff because the Bulldogs were keyed for this game like no other. Eagle Grove is next Friday at Eagle Grove. Webster City still has a tough Clarion team left and Algona has 9 fine shot at see* ond and passiWy a title tie. Sentral high school remained unbeaten and moved still closer to the State Line Conference title Friday night as they scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to post a 20-7 win over Swe«t City here. The Satellites meet Woden- Crystal -Lake this Friday and then come home for their final home game against Thompson—a contest that will decide the conference' title. Sentral scored first in the opening quarter as Jim Geitzenauer passed three yards to Ken Marlow and Jerry Nerem ran for the PAT.

In the fourth quarter, Ner- emi plunged from two yards out for one touchdown and •went over from the one a short time liter to ice the 'game. Gietzenauer passed to Owen Kerber for the point. Nerem scored two touchdowns and also was outstanding on defense, making 14 tackles and intercepting a Swea City pass. Randy Bierle also played a fine defensive game for the winners. Sentral is now 5-0 for the year while Swea City is 2-2-J.
