The'Bulldogs entered the final contest of the year at Humboldt last night (Wednesday). Algona made the only serious bid for a touchdown by either team in the opening period thfe first time it got the ball. The Bulldogs kicked off, Iowa Falls gained six yards and punted to the locals who put the ball in play on their own 28 yard line. Frank Kern, Doug Meyer, Jim Cowan and Bill Moxley took turns and Kern hit Meyer with a beautiful 22 yard pass as the Bulldogs moved to the Iowa Falls 27., A fourth-down pass from Meyer to Kern gained six yards to the 21, but wasn't enough, so the-Cadets took over. Wind A Big Factor The home team marched to mid-field by the end of the quarter, bxit a penalty on the second play of the. second stanza cut the drive short, and the Cadetg were forced to punt. A strong wind that proved to be .a big factor for both clubs all : night gave Iowa Falls a chdnce to score four plays later. Algona' gained seven yards to its own 23 after taking the Cadet punt and Kern dropped back to boot. The kick went only nine .yards, and as both teams watched, it roll dead, Gary Blair came by, scooped the pigskin up on the run and raced to Algona's 20 with It. A few moments later *IoWa • Smaller Schools Prove Big When It Comes To Football . The Second -T,»D'"> three plays with a minute left to go before the half gave the Cadets their second tally. The Cadets had the ball on Algona's 46i;yard line following a punt. Ralph Neubauer passed to Blair for. twelve, hit him again for eight, and then Blair took off through the left side of the Bulldog line and went all the way to the end zone. The kick for extra point was blocked. The main feature of the third period was a pair of Iowa Falls kicks into the wind. The first one started out like any punt, the wind caught the ball and curved it out of bounds 'on the Iowa Falls 32 yard line—JUST FOUR YARDS AHEAD OF THE PREVIOUS SCRIMMAGE LINE. The Bulldogs couldn't gain, punted'to the Cadets who punted right back. This time the kick went 11 yards to the Iowa Falls 39. Algona took advantage of this second chance. Meyer and Kern took turns carrying to the 23, and after Kern lost two yards, Meyer flipped to Rod Kickbush on the 13. Meyer went to the five on the last play of the third period. Iowa Falls stiffened, stopped Kern at the line of scrimmage, gave Meyer a yard to the four on third down, then slammed him back to the six and took over on fourth down. The Cadets then marched to midfield, but fumbled and Terry. Cook recovered on the Algonb 42. The Bulldogs went to the Cadet 43 with Moxley and Meyer carrying the mail, but Iowa Falls took over when a fourth down pass fell incomplete. ' Cadet Line Strong Iowa Falls marched to the Algona 23, but Meyer chopped the string when he intercepted a pass on the five and carried it out to the 11. Algona finally had to punt out, and after three incomplete passes, BJair carried for 15 yards to Algona's 22 as the game ended. * The Cadet line handled Algona's offense very well most of the time. Algonu gained only 60 yards rushing and 40 yards passing during the entire game. Meyer and Moxley were the only merv with plus yardage rushing, as Doug got 5§ yaids in 17 tries and Bill carried for 23 yards in seven attempts. Kern and Cowan lost |8 yards between them in 14 carries. Reed ran for 60 yards and passed for 30 and Blair scampered for 74 yards in ten carries to top the low.} Falls offense.

Swea City originally started with six-man football, but changed to the other game within a couple of years. Shortage of manpower seemed io be-the cause of'six-man football, but the shortage still exists and winning, teams continue to represent the three schools. Bode and Livermore, which have also had outstanding teams in the past, are other hot-spots where football has become a regular activity for sports fans every fall. grabbing a flat pass thrown from the West Bend two yard line g6od for a TD in the Marathon game. -•.•-. Ted Besch Hottest team in the entire area for the past two years has been the West Bend Bulldogs. Under Coach J. Dee Ferguson, West Bend has won 13, lost one, tied two during the past two years. And during ,the current season, the Bulldogs have amassed 190 points to eight opponent's 42 while winning seven and losing one. Top men for the Bulldogs have , . Larr,y Berninghaus been seniors Ted Besch, Larry Berninghaus and Chuck Miller and juniors Gary Anliker and Don. Peril. .Besch .was an all-Cornbelt Conference selection in 1954 and Js certain to-repeat this year. He s a 6' 1" 200 pound halfback that ills like a Mack truck and has been an outstanding ball carrier since his "first year. Besch is a Dasser of note, catches passes thrown his way, a good blocker, who on'defense specializes in intercepting passes, making tackles and generally messing up all opposition -attempts at offensive maneuvers. Berninghaus, a second-team all conference end selection last fall, is 6' 1" and weighs 185. Defensively, he is probably the top West Bend man, as many opposing backs could testify to the ferrbciousness of his deadly tackling. Larry, is also 'the favorite target of most of the West Bend passing attack. His catches have resulted in,many touchdowns for the Bulldogs, This is Miller's first year as regular quarterback, although he played quite a bit a year ago. Chuck ds' not hampered too much .although he plays with only one leg. His main weapon is his passing arm and he has thrown Several scoring tosses this season. His latest was a 98-yard play, which found Berninghaus Gary Anliker Anliker holds down -the enc« opposite Berninghaus, He is 5'11" and weighs in at 180. His all-around 'play, including defensive and offensive tactics, put him not too far behind the famous Besch-Bernirighaus duo. Pert! is a 5'10" 170 pounder, who plays guard on offense ana end on defense. He is the top man in the middle of the line when the Bulldogs go for the long gainer. Coach Ferguson's three-year record at West Bend is 15-7-2. He is a graduate of Nebraska State Teachers and a family man. His ability to produce .two winning teams after a dismal'first 'year marks him as a highly regarded and respected football strategist. Coach Lyle Opheim, Titonka Indian mentor, has produced Chuck Miller winning football there since h took the reigns. His greate; dub was probably the 1953 Ifle tans, who Won six and lost one but fans in that area have bee] pleaped by the present team' 5-3 record. This year, the Indians haV oUtscored opponents, 112-105, am gave West Bend a real go be fore falling, 25-12. It wa Opheim's 1953 team that pasted the last defeat on West Bend before Ruthven turned the trick two weeks ago. Bill Lyle, Swea City's new coach, faced a tough schedule with an under-manned squac and has won three and lost four The Trojans, after losing four of their first five games, came back to shut out Thompson, 19-0, and Armstrong, 25-0. They met Ti- tortka in the season finale for both teams at Titonka Friday night. Swea City scored 82 points while giving up 106 this season. Several former players from these schools have gone on to play college ball, and if this year's crop doesn't supply two or three, we'll miss our guess. Mallard Bows To West Bend, 33-0, At Homecoming • West Bend's Bulldoga^rounded out a successful season with a convincing 33-0 verdict over Mallard during homecoming festivities at West Bend Friday night. The,-Bulldogs finished with a 7-t won-lost mark. West Bend rolled 78 yards for its first touchdown, with Dale Jergens getting the counter on a .20 yard dash. Ted Besch slammed over with the extra point to make it 7-0. Mallard maneuvered its way down field following the next kick-off to the West Bend 10 yard line, but was stopped by the aggressive Bulldogs a's the first period came to an end. The teams battled back and ' forth until the middle of the second stanza when Jergens intercepted a Mallard pass and zoomed 65 yards for the second TD. Besch again added the extra point. Jergens got his third touch- Thuftday, November 3, 1955 Algona (la.) Upper Des Molrt«-7 down in the third period.

The extra point attempt failed. Chuck Miller passed for 20 yards to Larry Berninghaus for the final TD to make It 33-0. Mallard was thwarted by West Bend's defense during the entire second half.
