Bulldogs Slash Eagle Grove/ 32-0 Whole Team Turns In Best Play Of Year Algona High's Bulldogs, operating as a synchronized football team should, snapped back after last week's loss to Webster City and unleashed a balanced ground and aerial attack at Eagle Grove Friday night, controlling the entire game for a 32-0 win. The Bulldogs, evidently all the more fired up after last week, slashed the Eagles for three first half touchdowns, scoring each after sustained drives. The second half was all Algona as well, with reserves seeing a lot of action on a cold, crisp football night. EVERYTHING CLICKS The running game was in the hands of Larry Taylor, Mike Betts and Randy Riedinger with Rich Black returning to the lineup although he has had a jinxed back all year. And Black really did things -he carried the ball six times for 60 yards, averaging 10 yards per carry. The passing attack was more potent that ever. Led by Smokey Barr, receivers Greg Allen, Mike Betts and Larry Taylor found themselves open most of the time. RIEDINGER ROLLS Randy Riedinger got the evening underway nicely with continuous surges into the Eagle defense. He picked up the first two downs of the night and eventually drove to the half-yard line where Barr~ followed_his line into the end zone for thlTiirs six-pointer of the game. Tim Black's extra point boot was a little wide, but it didn't matter. EAGLES STYMIED Eagle Grove was powerless against the Bulldog interior line with nowhere to run outside, either. Credit must be given linemen like Randy Calhoun, Don Hagen, Bruce Bennett and Brad Farnham for nothing less than 100% effort. After the Eagles managed one first-and-ten on their first series of downs, they had to punt when the Bulldogs tightened things up. Algona was on its way again. PINPOINT PASSING This second drive featured the sharp passing of Barr and the fine hands of Greg Allen. Riedinger and Taylor took turns for two and three yard gains. Two perfect tosses to Allen on what seemed exactly the same play and a couple end sweeps by Mike Betts set up the next touchdown. The TD came on an eight-yard pass to halfback Taylor who caught the ball just before going out of bounds in the end zone. Black's PAT was on target this time; Algona led 13-0. SETTS' TD The Bulldogs had to overcome penalties all night. On the next touchdown drive, they were halted temporarily by several questionable referee's decisions, But Riedinger*s smashes and speedy Rich Black's slices into the line moved the ball to the 25-yard line. The Eagles were disorganized at this point, getting the first of three "too many men on the field" penalties, With scrimmage at the 20- 12-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Molnes Tuesday, Oct. 24, 1967 Sentral Wins, 34-7, Takes Firm Hold On Loop Lead yard line marker, linemen Jim Utt, Mike Dreyer and Steve Claude cleared the way for Mike Betts' scamper to pay dirt. The PAT was off the mark. BLACK "OUT OF SIGHT" Although there was no more scoring in the first half, Rich Black made THE run of the night on an intercepted pass late in the second quarter. He grabbed the ball on his own 20-yard line, picked up great downfield blocking, and changed direction at the right times during his 60-yard return before lie was hauled down at the Eagle 20. SECOND HALF SHUTOUT Things were great in the second half, too. After Eagle Grove sputtered out again, the Doggies mounted another attack with Riedinger and Black picking their way behind blocks from more linemen - Tom Jones, Phil Bode and Don Hagen. Larry Taylor scored his second touchdown on a second effort twist-turn run from the two-yard line. Black made it 26-0 with his second PAT splitting the uprights. BOOTLEG PLAY The last score grew out of several short blasts by Betts and Taylor and a perfectly-executed bootleg play with Barr laying out a 28-yard pass to Allen, who hauled it in at the five. Red flags failed to stop the Red and Black again . . . they y delayed the ultimate touchdown. Mr. Betts was called upon tor the task of the TD and he cruised into the end zone for the finale. A holding penalty on the extra point forced the Bulldogs to try the PAT from the 16-yard line. Black's boot was a little short. RESERVE POWER The final fpur minutes of the game were the dominated Algona's reserves. Defensively, Tom Parsons, Steve Voyles and Bennett blitzed well in the closing minutes with the latter recovering a fumble to shut off Eagle Grove's hope. Tim Clark and Randy Bleich filled in well on offense and Tim Black c^me in for Smokey Barr and threw one ten-yard aerial before time ran out. The Bulldogs proved they had a "come back" attitude against Eagle Grove. They'll need to keep this mental attitude the rest of the way to finish with that final 7-1 mark. Hampton, the next foe, opened up a sideshow offense against Webster City and scored 27 points Friday night, but lost to the Lynx 59-27. This indicates a wide open ball game is awaiting Algona this Friday at Hampton.

The victory made Sentral 5-0 in the conference, and they meet Thompson Friday night in Sentral's Homecoming tilt.inagame that definitely will decide the title without question, although Sentral could lose and still win if Thompson got bumped in its remaining game. But Sentral isn't planning on losing, and the Woden - Crystal Lake game seemed to indicate that the Satellites are getting stronger as the season progresses. A seven-yard pass, Jim Geitzenauer to Ken Marlow, with Nerem adding the PAT, gave Sentral an early 7-0 lead. Geitzenauer tossed another to Bob Bierle, a 29-yard pass for a second TD, and Nerem again added the PAT, and the first quarter ended 14-0 in Sentral's favor. Sentral added TD's in the second, third and fourth quarter, also. Owen Kerber went in from nine yards out for the third tally, and this time Geitzenauer added the extra point. Then it was a Geitzenauer to Marlow pass for 19 yards that put the fourth TD on the board, and Nerem added the extra point. Nerem broke loose for 28 yards to score the final touchdown, and this time the extra point attempt failed. With plenty of subs seeing action in the final quarter, Woden-Crystal Lake scored its TD on a 30-yard pass, Larsen to Anderson, and Gerdes added the extra point. Coach Bert Hanson singled out Gary Eimers and Dave Marlow for their outstanding defensive work. The statistics speak for themselves.
