Algona's Bulldogs easily won the battle of statistics, but were thwarted by numerous red flag? and official oversights as they dropped a 12-6 decision to Hampton in a North Central Conference game at Hampton Friday night. It was Hampton's Homecoming and the officials wenl along with the program anc guaranteed its success. Coach Jim Hershberger's learn, still clinging to third place in ihe loop, will go all out in an allempt .io upset Clear Lake's unbeaten Lions in •a big Homecoming fray here Friday (tomorrow) night. The Lions, one of the surprises in ihe loop ihis season, have taken six straight and are lied with Webster City for ihe league lead with a 5-0 mark.

The Flags Were Flying • ' From the seventh play of, the game on, it was apparent Algona wasn't going to have an easy time against Hampton. That's when the flags began to hurt the Bulldogs. They marched from their own 26 yard line to the Hampton 16 in six plays and scored an apparent touchdown on the next play as Rich Hutchins tossed a pass to Bob Ellefson. However, the . play was called back and the Bulldogs penalized 15 yards. They got back to the five and another red flag resulted jn a 17-yard step-off that halted the threat for good. Algona threatened once more Gam'gan Edged, 7-6, In Big Battle With Austin Pacelli Garrigan's Golden Bears, unbeaten in five outings, dropped a 7-6 decision to Austin Pacelli, top Catholic team in Minnesota, in a thrilling defensive struggle at Garrigan Field Saturday night before a huge crowd of Home- comers. The two big teams were as even as the score indicates. Garrigan will attempt to get win number six this Saturday night, Oct. 28, when the Bears travel to Fort Dodge for a meeting with St. Edmond at 8 p.m. St. Edmond, edged by the Bears in an offensive struggle here a year ago, arc improved and feature a fine quarterback, Denny Lawler. It was apparent from the opening whistle Saturday night thai ihe Garrigan-Pacelli game was going to be an offensive show—ihen as ihe baiile progressed, early indications of offensive sparks practically disappeared. Garrigan received the opening kick-oft' and Bill Reed ran it back 15 yiirds to the Bears' 33 yard line. Brother Bob Reed got a yard and Bill picked up eight before Jerry Krieps went for three and a first clown on the 45. Schneider Bootleg Fools Slim Bob Schneider replaced Krieps at the quarterback slot, faded and found Lyle Loebach slanting into the open on the left side. Schneider's pitch was perfect and Lyle grabbed it near the Pacelli 40. He boomed into the end zone and the Bears held an astonishing 6-0 lead. John Fandel was hauled down short of the goal line on the point after attempt, and the Bears had the upper hand with less than two minutes of play gone. A fumble late in the first period gave Pacelli its chance to score. Starting from the Garrigan 42, Pacelli got to the 26 when the quarter* ended. Two play? later, the visitors had a fourth down and 19 to go situation, so Bill Goblirsch tossed a short, flat pass to Brian Callahan, highly- touted Pacelli fullback. Callahan flipped his hips and zig-zagged in and out of the arms of several Garrigan tacklers as he squirmed 32 yards to score. A placekick by Dennis Maschka split the uprights and Pacelli had a 7-6 lead with only 1:08 gone in the second period. That's all she wrote as far as scoring was concerned. However, there were many thrilling plays during the rest of the game and practically all of them were of the defensive variety. Late Chance Misses End Dick Stoulil gave the Bears a chance to score late in the second period when he nailed Cal- j lahan for a 15-yard loss on the Pacelli 17-yard line on a fourth- down punt attempt. The Bears lost yardage on two consecutive plays, then Schneider launched a pass that floated toward Bill Reed near the left line of the end zone. Reed battled with two defenders and came down with the ball for an apparent six points, but a backfield-in-motion penalty nullified the play and the Bears lost the ball on downs one play later. Deepest penetration into enemy territory by either team during the final half came in the final quarter when a Garrigan punt took a bad bounce and Pa- eelli got the ball on the Bears' 27 yard line. The visitors were forced to punt and the ball went out of bounds on the Garrigan two. Bob Reed gained a yard and Krieps brought the crowd to its feet when he dashed 38 yards —and almost got away, on the next play. Garrigan got another chance a few moments later when Goblirsch of Pacelli was forced to throw a pass after a high snap from center on a punt attempt. The ball fell harmlessly and Garrigan took over on the Pacelli 26 yard line. The Bears couldn't gain, Pacelli took over and the clock ran out a couple of minutes later. Callahan Held In Check In a defensive game there are defensive standouts. For Garrigan, Steve Studer, Stoulil, Paul Seller, Krieps, the Reeds and several others were outstanding, while the Pacelli line 'was tremendous. Callahan, who ran Garrigan ragged a year ago, was contained (and then some) by Garrigan's line. He carried the ball 13 times and wound up with a minus five yard output. Only twice, the pass that scored the TD and a kick-off return, did he give Garrigan any real trouble. Chief tormentor was Ed Hanson who got 97 yards in 19 tries. Garrigan was led by Krieps, who ran for 31 yards and passed for six for a total of 37 yards. Schneider completed two of six passes for 59 yards.

Hampton punted out of trouble and the Bulldogs roared back for their only TD. Starting on their own' f 43, they tobk only seven plays to tally, A long pass from Tom Waller to Bill Wetzel chewed up-35 yards and after'another 15-yard .penalty, a screen pass from Waller,to'Lynn Kueck was good for 18 more yards. Waller crashed to the one-inch line and Algona was penalized five yards but'Waller scored on the next 1 play to make it 6-0. That time a 15-yard penalty might have stopped the march at the goal line but the referee made an error in, calculations and stepped off only five. A pass for the point after touchdown fell hafffllessly, in the end zone arid thg 6^0 score re mained at halftime.. Hampfon Crunches To Tally Hampton took 21 > plays to march 65 yards for the tying TI at the start of the third quarter During the drive, three fumbles two recovered by the Bulldogs but disallowed due to quick whistles, failed to halt the home club. Lloyd Jorgenson, a workhorse for the winners all night, got the Tb on a two-yard plunge An attempted placekick missed the uprights. Algona' began another long march right after the ensuing kick-foff. Starting on their own 37, a Waller to Wetzel pass, a sleeper play good for-35 yards, was called back because .the officials had never, seen such £P"fpr- mation, so Waller hit Hutchins for 34 yards on the next ,playi The march went to the Hamp^ ton 22; where Waller' was two nche's short of a first down when the official placed the ball about a yard behind where the little spinback had been dropped. Hampton punted out—and the Bulldogs got to the 17 before the drive was stopped. The home club hen marched to the : winning TD. t took 10 plays to cover the 7Q yards, with JorgenSon struggling the final 42 yards into the end zone, after it appeared he had stepped out of bounds on the 42.

Algona received the kick-off and had 20 seconds to get from its own 21 yard line to tht Hampton end zone — AND THE BULLDOGS JUST ABOUT GOT THE JOB DONE.
