The final score was 6 to 6. Algona, almost without exception, played its heart out to win. When Lyle Anderson, little 140 Ib. center, was forced to leave the field with a broken ankle in the closing minutes of play with the ball in Al- ;onn's possession, he wept and Beaded with Coach Paul Berger :o let him go back in. Such was the spirit of the team. Anderson will be lost for the Humblodt game next week. As It was, it Is well to •emember that whereas Algona held a slight edge In line crashing, the Eagle Grove team constantly filled the air with passes, any one of which might have taken the ball game from Its tie outcome.
