PHONE 434 IOWA FOOTBALL ON TELEVISION with forest Evashevski SUNDAY 10J15 P.W. Channel 3 Sponsored by the Dairy Farmers ol Iowa ALGONA CO-OP CREAMERY CO Webster City Victor Here, But Not Easily Webster City won the ball- game here, last' Friday night, but not without working for it, and not without trouble from a much- improved Algona high football team. The score was 1!) to G. The visitors might bo cedited with »he first and last quarter-when they had the wind advantage, the second quarter could well be termed a draw, and the third quarter was definitely Algona's. Coach Jason Loving's team came back fired up and really rolled, scoring their touchdown in that period. This Friday nighl the Bulldogs Iravel lo Eagle Grove in Iheir second North Cenlral Conference bailie. Eagle Grove also losl last Friday, 7 lo 0, at Humboldt. This game is rated about even on pre-game dope. There is no denying that Webster City fielded a smooth-functioning team, especially in the first quarter. Perhaps it is a. little of that old Webster City "jinx", but the visitors tallied their first touchdown in the first four minutes. Algona received, tried three plays, and punted. Blue opened the fireworks with a 21-yard sprint and only Kern's tackle from behind kept him from scoring. A jaunt around right end for 10 more took It to the two yard Algona line, then Dyvad scored standing up. The attempt at a conversion kick was fumbled. Webster City kicked off over the Algona goal. Successive Algona plays and a penalty found the locals back on their ovyn 10 and Meyer punted out to his 39- yard line. Webster City rolled down to the Algona 15 and seemed headed for a certain second TD but fumbled at this crucial moment, and Algona recovered. Meyer began slashing the Webster City line and ends, but the consistent sequence of gains was lacking, and the quarter ended with the Lynx back on the Algona 28. Blue opened the second quarter with 15-yard slash, and Burnett went over from the one a few plays later. The kick was good and Webster City led, 13 to 0. With the next kickoff, Algona had the wind, which blew briskly all evening, and Meyer returned to the Algona 35. A pass, Meyer to Robert Jensen took the ball to the 43 and the first Algona first down of the game. Jensen also recovered an Algona fumble, and Meyer punted over the Lynx goal. The visitors seemed to have lost a little of their steam, however, and Algona got the ball back on a return punt. Play seesawed, with-Algona gaining on punt exchanges, and Webster City held the ball at the half deep in their own territory. What happened during: the half was something good. After Algona kicked off, Webster City returned the kick after three futile plays, and. then Meyer launched the first of several onslaughts around his own right end and went to the visitor's 25. This throat was stopped when Webster City intercepted a pass. Two plays later the first Lynx pass went astray and Moxley nabbed it and returned to the Webster City 30. Meyer hit right end to the 12, tried the samo place again to the 4, and th"n drove over center for the lone Algona score. The kick failed, and the score was 13 to fi. The balance of the game was pi-etty even, although near the 'inish the visitors were again cracking off good gains. A crucial fumble on the Algona 20 stopped what might have been •mother Webster City score; Kern saved the day with a recovery for Algona. It should have been encouraging to the Bulldogs to find out that Webster City's team was only noi-tal men after all. and while the visitors won it was no walk- away. It' the Bulldogs make the same improvement this wt'ek as they did last week, they are not going to be a doormat for any one in the league the rest of the way. Several of the newer men showed great improvement, and local fans were unanimous In their opinion that it was "a good w.c. 1-t 2 0 1 18 0 299 299 4-4U 2-23.5 28 2 20 Siaiisiics Alg First downs 5 Passes Att. « Passes comp. 1 Passes int. by 1 Yds.
