Coai'h .Jason Lovinji'-s foam came bark fired up and really rolled, scoring their touchdown in that period. This Friday night the Bulldogs travel to Eagle Grove in their second North Central Conference battle. Eagle Grove also lost last Friday, 7 to 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 i< ,.v 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 2!-yard sprint and only Kern'* tackle from behind kept him from scoring. A jaunt around rijjht 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 Alii* ma plays and a penalty found the locals back on their own 10 and Meyer punted out to hi< ^it- 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, uncl the quarter ended with the Lynx back on the Algona 28. Blue opened the second quarter with 15-yard •dash, and Burnett went over from the one a few plays later. The kick was good and Webster City led. l.'i to 0. With the next kirkoff, Algona had the wind, which blew briskly all evening, and Meyer returned to the Algona 35. A pass. Meyer to Robert Jon.-en took the ball to the 43 and the first Algona first down of the game. Jensen also recovered ,.m Algona fumble, and Meyer punted over the Lynx goal. Th" visitors sn-mecl to have !•>.- a little of their steam, however, and Algona gut 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 oil, Webster City returned the kick after three futile plays, and then Meyer launched the first uf several onslaughts around his own right end and went to the vision's 25. This threat was stopped when Webster C'i'v intercepted a pj-,s. Two plays later the first Lynx: pass went astray and Moxli-y nabbed it and returned to ihr» Wi-bsu-r City 30. Meyer hit right end to the 12, tried the samo place again to the -4. and th-'ii drove over center tor the lont* Algona score. The kick tailed, and the .-core was 13 to G. The balance of the game was pretty even, although near the finish the visitors were again cracking off good gains. A crucial fumble on the Algona 2i) ^topped what might have bi-i-n another Webster City so-Te; Kern saved the clay with a ;•••(•<.very for Algona. It should have been en,-oiir:ig- ing to the Bulldogs to find out that Webster City's team was only mortal men after all. and while the visitors won it was no walk- away. If the Bulldogs make tlui same improvement tin.- week as they did last week, they are tMt going to be a doormat for any one in the league the rest, of the way. Several of ti.e newer men showed great improvement, an 1 local fans veie unanimous fn tht'ir opinion that it v.\is "a game."
