Algona Holds Off Hampton, 13-7 Lead13-0,then Hampton nearly pulls it out To direct freshman team STATISTICS Algona Hampton First downs 22 Total yards 326 by rushing 326 by passing 0 Passes attempted 3 Passes complete 0 Passes Inter, by 2 Fumbles lost - 3 13 207 67 140 41 22 1 1 Penalties 1-5 Algona high school ground out two first half touchdowns to dominate Hampton and then watched the home team come storming back to almost pull out a stunning upset Friday night. The Bulldogs ended with a well-earned 13-7 victory, for their sixth win in seven starts. Coach Keith Christie's club will close their season this Friday night at home against win less Clear Lake and a victory will give the Bulldogs undisputed possession of second place in the North Central Conference. This was a wild and exciting game which saw Algona roll up 17 first downs in the first half enroute to 235 yards and a 13-0 lead. The Bulldogs dominated just about every phase of those first 24 minutes and looked on their way to an easy win. HAMPTON'S "Shotgun" offense, in which they send both ends and a couple of backs far out to the sides, didn't shoot anything but becbees during those early minutes but the home club loaded their guns in the second half. At the finish, Hampton's quarterback was throwing the ball for the winning touchdown every time he cocked his arm but happily, the play was mostly in Hampton territory. Statistics are usually cold facts but in this game they tell the story. Algona rolled up 326 yards — ALL ON THE GROUND. Roger Barr threw just three passes, two fell harmlessly and the other was intercepted. On the other side of the ledger, Hampton ran only a handful of plays but passed 41 times for 22 completions. They gained only 140 yards in all those tries and actually, Algona did a good job in stifling the spread offense. The Bulldogs, tipped off from the preceding week when Hampton passed 56 times against Webster City, drilled all week in stopping the "shotgun." They were marvelously successful in the first half and moderately in the second. Christie rushed with four men and used the other seven to defense against the throws. ALGONA took the opening kickoff and with Mike Belts, Rich Black, Randy Riedinger and Larry Taylor eating up huge chunks of real estate, marched from the Algona 30 to the Hampton six when a bad handoff caused a fumble on the Hampton 6. The Bulldogs were right back there again shortly, starting from their 34. Rich Black ran for 17 big yards and Riedinger bulled for 15 more in the drive. Larry Taylor popped for seven to the one and Barr sneaked over for the touchdown with 2:15 left in the first quarter. Tim Black's kick was perfect and at this point, Algona had run 24 plays to just four by Hampton. The home club got a flurry of passes working for them to the Algona 16 with big end Tom Porter, who played his first year of football this season, catching several. Hampton's only fumble of the night killed the drive on the Algona 10-yard line and a tough tackle by Larry Taylor jarred the ball loose. Midway in the second period, the Bulldogs got things going again starting from the Algona 29. The only penalty of the night against Algona (Hampton also had just one but it came at a crucial time liter on) put the Bulldogs back to the 24 and they mar- phe<J the 76 yards in 11 running plays. Thompson in win over Sentral Friday STATISTICS Sentral Thompson Ames, Iowa — Former Algona Garrigan football star Bill Heeling is alternating with Obert Tisdale, Waterloo, for the starting quarterback job on the Iowa State freshman team, which has a 1-0 record. The 6-3 190-pounder, shown above with frosh coach Arch Steel performed well in the 40-7 win Oct. 20 over Missouri's frosh in Ames, as did Tisdale also. Although Tisdale started that game, Bill, the son of Frank Reding of LuVerne, scored two touchdowns, netted 11 yards rushing, and hit two of five passes for 20 yards. Heading into the next game, a Nov. 3 encounter at Nebraska, it's anybody's guess who will start of the two. Bill, a football, basketball ,and track letterman in high school, was a second-team all- state selection by the Iowa Daily Press Association in 1966 and fifth-team all-state by the DCS Momes Register the same year. The former football and basketball prep captain is majoring in journalism at ISU. BRUCE BENNETT 'Playing good football" BRAD FARNHAM "Tough Lineman" and two Riedinger punches picked up 15 more to the Hampton 17. Betts almost got in on a sweep but was run out on the one and Riedinger punched it over on first down with 1:13 left in the half. Algona started right out in the second half as if it was going to make a rout of it but Hampton quickly dug in and took over when Barr fumbled :>n the Algona 44. A first down pass gained 25 to the Algona 19 and then a five-yard offside penalty nullified a near touchdown. That was a mighty big break. BETTS FINALLY killed the threat with an interception on the 25 but Riedinger fumbled ( after picking up 13 yards and' Hampton was starting again on the Algona 37. This time, Taylor intercepted on the Algona 10. Barr's heave to Greg Allen shortly after was stolen by a Hampton defender and it took the home club just five plays to cover the 37 yards for the TD with 1:10 left in the third period. Don Tidman circled end on one of the few straight "T" formations .from the four on third down. The kick split the uprights and it was 13-7. There was lots more excitement to come. Algona gained just seven yards after the kickoff and then Tim Black boomed a magnificent punt from his 20-yard line to the Hampton eight. Algona fans breathed easier but not for long. HAMPTON reeled off three first downs but had to kick to the Algona 20. They got the ball back again on the Hampton 42 but Algona stiffened again and a fourth down fake kick with .a yard to go fooled no one. So Algona took over but still there was more excitement left. Hampton got the ball again with two minutes remaining end moved to its 45 before time ran out - in another flurry of passes. Despite the closeness of the score, this was a good Bulldog effort. The line did a great job of opening some big, big holes and Bulldog runners gave that extra effort time and again for extra two and three yards. There were some great pass- defense plays made by the Bulldog secondary during the evening, and mention should be made of four Algona interior linemen, all juniors, Phil Bode, Randy Calhoun, Brad FarnHam and Bruce Berinett, who helped put pressure on the Hampton quarterback, forcing some hurried throws. The night was not a complete failure for Hampton school followers. Midway in the third period, it was announced that voters had ap> proved by 67 per cent a $1.5 million school bond issue for a new high school. There was celebrating aplenty at Hampton this night but it was riot on their gridiron feats.

However, a loss by Thompson next week will still give Sentral the title. In the first quarter Mike .Hamlin took an 11-yard pass from Arlo Sime to go over for the first score. Anderson converted the extra point. Sentral came back strong in the second quarter with Ken Marlow on the receiving end of a 60 yard pass from Jim Geitzenauer for the first TD of the game for Sentral, and Owen Kerber tied the score. Before the half ended a 14-yard pass from Jim • Geitzenauer was picked off by Owen Kerber for the second touchdown, putting Sentral out in front, 13-7. The third quarter was a big one for Thompson. Arlo Sime intercepted a pass and ran 30 yards for a touchdown, tying the score, but not for long, as his conversion put Thompson out in front 14-13. A five yard run by Mike Hamlin made it 20-13 when the extra point failed. The final touchdown for either team came still in the third quarter when Arlo Sime connected on a two yard pass to Doug Peterson, and Hamlin made the extra point. Owen Kerber of Sentral was cited for outstanding play, making 21 tackles. Anderson of Thompson also did an outstanding job] -AlfMta (f*wi) Advene* MONDAY. OCT. 30,1 W STATf LINt CONFIRINCI ,-.
