POTENT LYNX HERE; GHS HITS ROAD FRIDAY loop Me At Stake In Big Game At AHS Football fans living in the Algona area will have to decide whether they are going to make a short trip or stay at home this weekend - as Garrigan and Algona High both play Friday night. Coach Keith Christie's unbeaten Bulldogs will host Webster City's also unbeaten Lynx in the most important North Central Conference game of the year at 7:45 p.m.-and Coach Beanie Cooper will lead his Golden Bears, now 2-2 for the season, against the Emmetsburg Irish there. The Bulldogs will have to top any effort to date thisseason-IF (and that's a mighty big word) they are going to topple the Lynx and hang on to first place in the loop -and the Bears will also have to come up with a good night to post a win over the tenacious Irish. Both local clubs won during the past weekend, the Bulldogs running their 1967 unbeaten skein to four with a come-from-behind 13-12 verdict over Humboldt Friday, while the Bears broke a 7-7 tie with about two minutes left and snared a 9-7 Homecoming win over Ft. Dodge St. Edmond Saturday night. Both games were real thrillers, but each club has played better games earlier. Algona High's task will be made more difficult by the fact that many times the mere appearance of a Webster City football team at the game site throws fright into the opposition. Not that the Lynx don't have a built-in superiority, due to the size of its high school enrollment compared to other schools in the loop, but the tradition of winning is a bugaboo to the other schools. According to scouting reports, Webster City is primarily a running team, with the pass always a threat whenneeded. However, the club favors the knock-down, drag out method of gaining yardage which is also Algona's favorite type of offense. So, the defenses of both clubs should be the key. If (and there's that word again) Algona can put together an entire 48 minutes of rock-ribbed football, the Bulldogs could tack up win number five. Christie's crusty crew may have some tricks up their sleeves, items from the offensive file that may have been kept under wraps at Humboldt despite the fact the contest was a chiller right down to the wire. One got the feeling the passing attack, which has been very potent at times, without sting at others, was kept under wraps on purpose, giving Webster City a little more to worry about in the impending struggle. Algona fans hope the air arm can be used to give the Lynx fits in Friday's meeting. Meanwhile, the running attack, with Randy Riedlnger, certainly one of the hardest running little men around, Mike Betts, whose tricky slants seem to be gaining momentum each week, and the hard work of Larry Taylor, Smokey Barr and Tim Black, has been quite adequate when the chips are down — and accounted for 246 big yards in the Humboldt fray. A stringent Webster City defense, which hates to give up points, will probably have to be split up somewhat with passes if the locals are to post a win. Algona's defense, led by Tom Jones, Mike Dreyer, Jim Utt, Don Hagen, Neal Smith, Tim Black, Steve Claude, Brad Farnham and the rest of the rugged 'Dogs, is nothing to be sneezed at - and Webster City knows it, due to a brigade of scouts that has seen the club in action every game this season. The game should be topnotch- with the favorite role in the hands of the Lynx on the basis of past performance (for years) and an impressive mark in conference play during 1967. The Bulldogs will have to play errorless ball on offense and defense to get win number five. After absorbing a thumpi .£ at the hands of Sioux Falls (/Gorman a week earlier, the Golden Bears were "flat" part of the time Saturday night and depended on a late defensive play to get past St. Edmond. A high center snap on a punt attempt, with the would-be kicker trapped and banged in the end zone by Pave McCarthy and Jerry Plathe, resulted in the winning safety - third two-pointer of the year for Coach Cooper's club. A defensive lapse (much like one suffered by the Bulldogs a night earlier) nearly cost the Betts TO Sets Up AHS Win i\*?m?tWp" : *• W,vT.'-,;»V>- l , •;«• : :, r '-'i • ' * i*. jr- »*»'*• r-'*'*- .

Betts (82) is shown at the right center in the above photo as he crossed the goal line into the end zone, near camera. At least four Wildcats, including Mike Oberman (30) and Lynn Westfall (16), are trying to keep the elusive Betts from six points. When Tim Black kicked the extra point after this play, Algona took a 13-12 lead that gave the locals their fourth straight victory without a defeat this year. Next up on the slate is always-tough Webster City, also 4-0 for the season and 3-0 in the loop. Winner of the contest here Friday night will probably take the North Central Conference title. (Humboldt Newspapers Photo) Bears a win. They let Joe Cahill of the Gaels get away for a 92- yard jaunt and when the same lad added the extra point, early in the second quarter, it took care of the scoring until the final safety. The Bears, if they can break from the starting blocks early in the game, will rank as favorites against Catholic. Garrigan has a tougher schedule in its favor - and a 2-2 mark at this juncture is a good one. Cooper sprung some surprises at St. Edmond offensively when Mike Schiltz, who has been running outside and catching short flare passes practically all season, was sent up the middle-and the little Water Bug responded by leading the club in rushing. It will probably be Schiltz and big Jack Muller, who leads the team in rushing this season with 392 yards, slamming up the middle and Tom Black trying the ends on keepers against the Irish. Schiltz will carry a 4.4 average and Muller a 4.1 mark into the fray. Schiltz also leads in pass receiving with eight catches for 85 yards. Up front, defensive leaders for the Bears have been McCarthy, Muller, Plathe, Jim Boudewyns, Kevin McCarthy and Co. Depth is lacking - but the Bears, as usual, bear the Cooper trademark, hustle - so will cop more wins before the 1967 season comes to an end. They'll hustle after number three Friday night. Other games of interest in this area Friday include Woden- Crystal Lake at Titonka for a Homecoming game; West Bend at Sioux Valley; and Sentral at Swea City. The unbeaten Satellites will go after their fifth straight in the latter State Line loop contest. Garrigan High Sophs Hammer _ E'Burg, 42-0 The Garrigan sophomores slammed Emmetsburg 42-0 Monday behind the two-touchdown production of Tom Froehlich, Pat Nugent and Phil Richter. The Little Bears will tangle with Ft. Dodge here at 7 p. m. next Monday. While each of the three sophomores scored two touchdowns, Nugent and Richter shared extra point duties, getting three apiece. Coaches selected Rich Eischen for his blocking and Nugent for his running as the outstanding performers for the locals. Kick, Punt & Pass The local "Kick, Punt and Pass" contest will be held this Thursday, Oct. 12, at 7 p. m. at the old Athletic Field at the corner of State and Phillips.

Upper Dei Motnii Thursday, 6d. 12, 1*67 Algona Junior Varsity Beats Humboldt, 19-0 A fired up Algona high junior varsity team downed its previously undefeated foe, Humboldt, on the Algona field last Monday evening 19 to 0. The size of the victory margin came as somewhat of a surprise in view of the fact that the visitors had downed Webster City and had beaten Twin Rivers by a wider margin than had the Bullpups. The next Algona J-V foe will be Webster City, there, next Monday night. Both teams conducted a probing first quarter which went scoreless, but the first break came in the second quarter when a Jack Waller to Steve Fitzpatrick pass took the Bullpups to a first down on the Humboldt 15. A few plays later Randy Bleich went in for the TD and Steve Willrett carried for the extra point. Starting the second half the visitors began to show more power, but a beautiful pass interception by Mark Olson gave the Bullpups a fine break, and they moved in for a second score with Duane Hunt rolling over for the TD. A fumble marred the extra point try. In the final stanza Willrett picked up a Humboldt fumble and went in for the final touchdown. The point try failed. Humboldt opened up with a flurry of passes toward the end of the contest, but seemed unable, in the bitingly bitter wind and cold, to put together a successful play series. Kenny Marshall intercepted a blocked pass near the end of the game to crush HumboldPs final hope for a score. The J-V looked the best it has all season, with a fine defense functioning, led by Robbie Claude, Steve Mueller, Tom Lalng, Ron Matz and Darrell Miller, to name only a few. Fitzpatrick, Bleich, Hunt and Willrett gave the offense a battering ram power that even a big, heavy Humboldt outfit could not stop. It was the third win for the Bullpups, who have one tie and ho losses.
