10-Algona, (la.) Upp*r DM Mointft Tuwday, S«pt. 19, 1967 Algona Hi Rolls Up 39-7 Win Over Emmetsburg In Opener Rich Black Is Good For 206 Yards, 21 Tries The Algona High School football team surprised nearly everyone Friday night at the local field by unleashing a versatile and potent offense in a resounding 39-7 victory over Emmetsburg. Greatly outweighed, Coach Keith Christie's Bulldogs used crisp blocking, smooth ball- handling, smart running and a rugged defense to overwhelm the E'Hawks in the season opener for both clubs. Two big keys to the effectiveness of the Algona offense were the tremendous running of Rich Black and errorless ballhandling by Roger "Smokey" Barr. Black, a senior halfback who missed his sophomore and junior years of competition due to broken bones, raced for 206 yards in 21 carries with a fine display of speed and agility. Barr, a senior who quarterbacked the Bulldogs last year, executed roll-out' options and bootlegs smoothly to repeatedly stun the E'Hawks with big- yardage sweeps. His fakes kept the visitors guessing and his passing showed promise. Senior fullback Randy Riedinger and junior halfback Larry Taylor rounded out the starting backfield with important power dives through the Emmetsburg line and crisp blocking to give the offense versatility. Taylor banged out 50 yards in 9 tough carries. DEFENSE OUTSTANDING The Algona defense must be credited with a superb effort in stopping the bigger E'Hawks everytime they mounted a scoring threat. Exceptional play by linemen Jim Utt, Steve Voyles, Randy Calhoun, Bruce Bennett and Brad Farnham forced the Visitors to fumble four times. In the secondary, Mike Betts, Kich Black, Tim Black and Riedinger turned in good games. After a scoreless first quarter dominated by the E'Hawks, the Bulldog offense opened up. In the first six minutes of the second quarter, the locals had blasted out three touchdowns for a 20-0 lead. With only a minute gone in the second quarter, Barr bootlegged the ball to his right on a second down and two-yards-to-go situation and hit end Mike Betts with a perfect running pass. Betts outran two defenders for a nice 62-yard TD. The PAT attempt by Tim Black was wide and the Bulldogs led 6-0. The stunned E'Hawks added to their woes when they fumbled the following kickoff by Voyles and end Neal Smith recovered on the Emmetsburg 24. After a Barr pass was dropped in the end zone, Rich Black went for eight yards to the visitor's 16. A motion penalty moved Algona back to the 21. Barr then made up the difference with a bootleg keeper and got to the 3-yard line for a first down. On the next play, Barr nudged over the goal on a quarterback sneak. Tim Black's kick was perfect and the Bulldogs led 13-0. Voyles kicked off for Algona and Emmetsburg took over on its own 34. After a one-yard gain, Calhoun knifed through and threw the Emmetsburg quarterback for a 5-yard loss. The E'Hawks took to the air on the next play, but junior Tim Black timed the pass right and intercepted racing 25 yards untouched for the third touchdown. His kick was good and Algona was in command 20-0. In the next series of plays, Emmetsburg appeared to be moving. A long pass by the E'- Hawks nearly put them on the score board, but Taylor knocked the ball carrier out of bounds on the Algona 49. Two plays later, a jarring tackle by Utt knocked the ball loose and 215 Ib. Brad Farnham recovered on the Algona 33. Barr moved the Bulldogs to the Emmetsburg 5-yard line in nine plays, with the big gainers coming on pitchouts to Black and plunges by Taylor. With 44 seconds left in the half, Ban's lateral to Black scored again from the five. Tim Black's kick was good and Algona led at the half 27-0. The spirited Bulldogs were in command again and rang up the score board with seven minutes gone in the third quarter. After marching to the visitor's 10- yard line in ten plays, Barr*s running bullet pass to Taylor was perfect and the halfback slanted across the goal. Ian Davison, Algona's foreign exchange student, missed the kick- after and the locals led 33-0. Emmetsburg fumbled the next kickoff and Tim Black fell on the ball, then the E'Hawk defense stiffened. Coach Christie began substituting and neither team scored as the quarter ended. 86-YARD JAUNT Just after the final period started, Emmetsburg punted to the Algona 14. On the first play from scrimmage, Rich Black proved he is even dangerous when tired and turned ii the top play of the game with an 86-yard touchdown jaunt. The PAT attempt was blocked and Algona led 39-0. The E'Hawks took advantage of Algona's only fumble of the night to post their seven points. Emmetsburg end Gerald Wheeler took a 14-yard TD pass to make the final count 39-7. The season opener was certainly a pleasant surprise for Bulldog fans. Algona's productive offense and destructive defense combined for a fine team effort and victory a game that is usually rough and awkward. It is difficult to single out individuals in the Bulldog interior offensive line, but the final score indicates that linemen such as Phil Bode, Mike Dreyer, Don Hagen, Steve Claude, Jim Utt and a host of others were doing their jobs effectively. Algona's opponent for the homecoming game next Friday is Clarion, a 7-6 loser to powerful Belmond last Friday. The fray will open the North Central Conference play at 7:45 at the local field.

Coach Beanie Cooper's hustling club will be out to square its season record this Saturday night when Clay-Central of Royal comes to town. The meeting will be the first for the two schools. Friday's opener featured plenty of lightning (Estherville) and thunder (Garrigan) - with the home club, christening a new football layout with a win, preferring the quick strike for scores and Garrigan getting its counters mostly through the efforts of the pounding thrusts of fullback Jack Muller. Muller counted all of the Bears' points. Estherville needed just 50 seconds to get on the Scoreboard. The Midgets had a second and 10 facing them on their own 32 right after the opening kickoff when Dan Hood, quick and shifty 150-lb. junior halfback, took a hand-off, found a hole and scooted all the way for six'points. Bob Torrence booted the extra point to make it 7-0. Garrigan tried to tie it right after the ensuing kickoff, and with Muller and Mike Schiltz eating up the yards moved from Us own 35 to the Estherville 31 before being forced to punt. The Midgets, putting the ball in play on the 10, fumbled on the second play and Jim Boudewyns of the Bears alertly fell on it on the 10. In three plays the score was knotted, 7-7. Muller went three, John Mertz four and Muller the final three for the score. Muller bounced off at least seven tacklers as he smashed for the extra point. Estherville needed only five plays to cover 80 yards to take the lead again. A long pass was good for 30, a couple of short runs ate up six and another run got 12 before Torrence hit Hood with a scoring pass from the Garrigan 32. This time, the kick by Torrence was far off the mark, so it was 13-7. The Bears waited until soon after the start of the second stanza to go ahead. Starting on their own 20, Garrigan marched entirely on the ground in 13 plays to a score. Muller got 12, Mertz four, Muller five, three, then two, Schiltz 12, Muller six, Schiltz eight, Muller 12 and nine, Schiltz three and then Jack bolted for two twice to tie the count. He also smacked home for the extra point to make it 14-13. Estherville threatened once before the half and had a TD called back, but the Bears clung to the lead at the intermission. Garrigan's 69-yard drive to a TD right at the start of the third period stunned the Midgets as Muller and Schiltz gained all of the yardage, with Jack scoring from the three. Schiltz was stopped as he attempted to add the point after, so it was 20-13. In five minutes, the lead was cut to one point. The ultimate winners scooted 66 yards in 12 plays, with Hood going the last five for the points. Again, the extra point boot was far off the mark. Estherville was in possession of the ball on its own 31 when the third period ended - but moved the needed 69 yards in 12 plays to snare the win. The pay-off play was a fourth down toss from quarterback Greg Olson to end Gary Eide, who fielded the ball just inside the end zone end line for the TD. The point after went astray again, but it had nothing to do with the outcome. Garrigan's final threat of the night, set up by a nifty punt return, good for- 26 yards, by John Winkel, died on the Estherville 36 shortly before the final siren. Garrigan senior end Steve Erpelding sustained a fracture of the right arm in the last few moments of action and is not expected to see duty any«more this year. Besides the backs, who practically always gain recognition for their efforts, perhaps the top performer for the Bears was center and linebacker Kevin O'Brien. Statistically, the winners held the upper hand 364-199 running and passing, with all of Garrigan's yardage on the ground. Alert Bears picked off three Estherville fumbles, all in the first half. Muller slammed his way forward for 148 yards in 33 tries, winding up with a 4.5 average, while Schiltz got 71 in 13 carries for a 5.5 average. Hood topped Estherville with 80 yards Official statistics : G E First downs 12 13 Passes 1-0 8-6 Yds. passing 0 147 KO 4-47.6 5-47.8 Punts 6-34.8 2-40 Yds. kicks ret. 77 71 Fumbles lost 0 3 Yds. penalized 38 24 Yds. rushing 199 217 Tot. yds. gained 199 364 Twin Rivers Races Past Humboldt 18-7 Twin Rivers, which administered Humboldt's only defeat a year ago in the season opener, ripped through and over the vaunted Wildcat defense, picking up 401 yards on the way to an 18-7 v-ictory at Bode Friday night to repeat the 1966 victory. The Pirates took the lead when Doue Logue blasted up the middle and went 20 yards to paydirt. The extra point was missed and Humboldt took the lead at halftime on a one yard smash by Mike Oberman and when Geoff Mickelson booted the extra point, Humboldt took a 7-6 halftime lead. Steve Bergum, who hit 9 of 15 passes for the winners, good for 139 yards, passed five yards to Mike Christensen, who caught seven during the fray, for the six-pointer that put the Pirates on top to stay in the third stanza. Roger Clark added the final TD for the winners in the 'fourth quarter. Twin Rivers ran for 262 yards and passed for 139, with Clark getting 113 yards in only seven tries, while Logue added 112 in 19 trips. Humboldt managed 108 yards on the ground, with Oberman getting 73 in 21 attempts, and 63 through the air. Sentral Posts 12-6 Victory In Opener Sentral High's Satellites galloped toa!2-6victoryatKanawha Friday night in the season opener for both schools. The Sentral club is slated to host Lincoln Central of Gruver this Friday night. Jerry Nerem's 6-yard touchdown run sparked the Sentral victory at Kanawha as the winners put a pair of long scoring thrusts together for victory. The other Sentral score came on a 50-yard pass to Ken Marlow. The losers counted their TD late in the fray on a 4-yard run by Norman Baker. It was a non-conference fray. West Bend Is 39-6 Victim Of Graettinger Dick Clipperton scored three touchdowns in leading Graettinger to a 39-6 victory at West Bend Friday night.

For West Bend, Joe Runchey caught a 25-yard pass from Joe Mikes for the only points in the fourth quarter.
