ALGONA ELEVEN U2TOO, AT CLEAR LAKE Bulldogs Show G-reat Improvement; teams battle Evenly During Most of The Contest, Friday A greatly Improved Algona Bulldog eleven was still short of balanced strength Friday and BO lost to Clear Lake's big aggregation 12 to 0 but before the evening was over the local squad showed plenty of promise of developing Into ft power In the North Central conference. But for three bad plays the Bulldogs might actually have won the game and as It was the affair was fought on almost even terms right up to the final gun or rather Whistle since the Lakers seemed to have forgotten to buy shells for their artillery. Spencer Team Next The local team may even rank as slight favorites In their first game at Algona, against Spencer, Friday night, if it continues to show Improvement and no injuries crop up to decimate Flndley's small squad. Those three unfortunate plays deserve mention. The first was actually a question of judgment and might have turned Into an advantage for Algona. On third down Clear Lake ran a play Into the line which gained about four yards but the Lakers were offside and Algona had the choice of accepting the gain and leaving Clear Lake on Algona's 45-yard line with a fourth down and five yards to go for a first or taking the penalty and leaving them in their own territory with 15 to go and (falrd down. Algona took the pen- ally and Hyle Lowman. Laker full- iHtek promptly spun off his own left tackle for 16 yards and a first down. Ostrander ran on the next play to Algona's ten yard line, and on the third play of the series Hyle Lowrnun went off left tackle again for a touchdown. In the second half. Clear Lake's big center, Paul Anderson blocked one of Roger Michel's punts and Enablt recovered for the Lakers on the Bulldogs' 35-yard line. The winners couldn't Rain an Inch over the right side of Algona's line where big Wesley Schultz was the best man In the forward wall of either team, but Ostrander ran to the right to put the ball Into position for Hyle Lowman to drive over his own left tackle where the gigantic Gordon Coyier was opening holes through his smaller and more Inexperienced Bulldog opponents. Lowman finally Scored In this manner. Clear Lake missed the extra points after both touchdowns. Pas* Narrowly Misted The third bad break came In the first half when an Algona offensive seemed on its way. The Bulldogs had a yard and a half to (to for first down on their own 35-yard line when the Algona quarterback called for a pass Instead of trying for the His strategy was sound W$t Algona '"STOmCAL DEFT.

Outside of the two touchdown plays and Algona's scoring chance there wns little other actual threats at scoring. Both teams played for the most pnrt straight conservative football with the local team looking much better In Its fundamentals than In the season's opener although there was still room for a good deal of improvement. Ball carrying honors of the game went to Clear Lake's Hyle Lowmnn with its halfback. Ora Anderson, doing some flashy running also. For Algona, LeRoy Lee turned In a fine game being the chief ground gainer for the locals and backing up the weak side of the line viciously at times. Roger Michel clearly out- punted the Laker kicker and the ends. Miller and Long, covered his boots perfectly, completely bottling up Lowman. gchult* Real Star Top honors In the line went to Srhultz, who looked the part of an all-conference tcakle and the line play on the whole was greatly Improved. The weaknesses at the ends seem to be solved and if Ehrhardt and Halpln can improve enough to take care of the rieht tackle post prospects seem bright for a nrst victory of the season in the opener this week.
