Sentral will host Hurt, which , won its first game of the season, 26-7, from Hake Friday night in the season finale tomorrow (Friday) night. A win by Sentral would give the Fenton-Lone Rock-Seneca team a 3-3 loop record, while a win by Burt would give each team a 2-4 mark for the season. Thompson got off to a 7-0 leat? over Sentral in the first perloct Friday night. Sentral came back scored two TDs and an extra point and took a 13-7 halftimr lead.

The Bears will be gunning for win over Sentral at Sentra 1 tomorrow (Friday) night. Sentral picked up its second straight win of the year Friday, a 32-7 conquest of Thompson. Burt now ' Friday night. The locals, who now have a 5-2 season mark, a 4-2 record in the North Central Conference and the most wins in a single season' by any Bulldog squad since 1953, will meet Clarion's Cowboys in the season finale here tomorrow (Friday) night. A win by the Bulldogs would probably assure them of a tie for second place in ihe loop. The reason — Clear Lake, presently alone in second, must meet Webster City powerful Lynx in a season wind-up at Clear Lake Friday — and only a miracle could allow ihe Lions io win. Clarion, until Friday night when Webster City pounded out a 54-7 victory, had been on the comeback trail after a rather slow start this year. The Cowboys downed Belmond, 19-0, in the opener, tied Hampton, 0-0, and lost to Eagle Grove and Clea Lake before dumping Humbold and Iowa Falls to climb up in the standings. Webster Cit> halted the climb. Against six common loop foes, Algona holds about a 10-point per game edge over the showing by Clarion — howeVer, the Cowboys have always been tough for the Bulldogs and undoubtedly will be again. ' Assistant Coach Champ Martin will be at the reins of the Bulldogs in the finale, due to the fact Coach Hershberger left Sunday to report for a year'? Humboldt ...0 3* 4' 4 6 has a 1-6 season Sentral is 2-5. The Bears scored 'mark, while in every quarter to dump Rake.

Friday's Homecoming fray, with Queen Sue Schultz and her court reigning over the festivities, was played in a gale from the southwest. Lakers Gain Quickly Clear Lake threatened soon after the opening kick-off after holding Algona and putting the ball in play after a punt to the Lion 40 yard line. Todd Wilkens split the middle of the Algona line and dashed 49 yards to the Algona 11 on the first play and a hush fell over the Algony crowd. However, the Bulldogs stiffened, batted down a pass and twice threw ball carriers for & loss to take over on the 11. The Lions threatened again after the ensuing punt, this time getting to the Algona six yard line before Tom Waller picked off a jump pass and ran it out to the Algona 14. The interception took a lot of starch out oj the favored visitors. Algona went 80 yards to pay- dirt in just' seven plays, being interrupted only by the buzze: at the end of the first period. Short runs by Bill Wetzel, Rich Hutchins, Waller and Gary Rusk moved the ball to the 34 by the Clear Lake Tallies ' .'*," However, Clear Lake, showing | good form, put Wilkens anc Quarterback Denny Lowman' to work and went 60. yards in. seven plays to make it 18-6. Wilkens got the long gainer when he went 27 yards to the Algona three. Lowman got the TD from 1 the two. Wilkens ran the extra poirit to make it 18-7. . ' , v The- teams then battled '•?<&> even terms to the final buzieE The whole doggone Bulldog squad can claim credit for .trie win. In team effort, there h'asnjt been a game like it all "year. From sparkplug Waller, 'halfbacks Wetzel, Hutchins, ' Rusk and Kueck and blocking back Jerry Parsons, right through the line, everyone rated A for effort (and don't forget hustle). Sophomore tackle Paul Smith was especially tough on Clear Lake ball carriers. He repeatedly knocked them down, for losses of varying lengths. But he .had lots of company in Dennis Helnr- ke, Bill Specht, Mike Kain, Randy Harmes, Gary Kelley and the rest. And Maynard Shackelford buzzed. around like a hornet a|] -"»*••""« 4*J1V- U .liUi IJCt tlfi night. He recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass, among other things.

Several Garrigan players suffered bashed-in-faces, especially early in the fray, and three or four were knocked out during the rugged action. Bill Reed suffered a head injury during the first series of plays and did nor get back into action. As a result, Bob Schneider, reserve quarterback, took the controls and regular quarterback Jerry Krieps was moved to a halfback slot. It didn't take the Bears long to get started on the,way to victory. .-The teams traded, the ball back and forth on a fumble anr' pass interception to set up Garrigan's first TD.

However, Ft. .Dodge failed to threat en and the Bears couldn't get another drive going, either. Garrigan moved toward another score early in the third stanza, but St. Edmond stiffened and took over. A punt by Lawler, helped by a wind, rolled in- , performances gaining Terry Hud stfeth and Paul Seller top plaudits for their play. They werr rugged.
