Conference Standings W L T Humboldt -... 400 Iowa Falls 400 Webster City 3 0 1 Eagle Grove 121 Clarion 130 Hampton 130 Clear Lake 1 3 0 Algona + 040 Algona was down 12-0 at the end of the first period despite the fact Clear Lake didn't register a first down while the Bulldogs got two. The Bulldogs moved for 33 yards on a pass from Dave' Richardson to Jerry Rupp on the third play from scrimmage and found themselves on the Clear Lake 47 yard line. The Lions intercepted Richardson's next toss on their own 46 and had a touchdown two plays later. Darrell Morehouse zoomed 47 yards for the six-pointer. The attempted extra point failed and the Lions led, 6-0. Algona racked up another first down after the next kick-off, but were penalized for holding and a pass, thrown by Richardson was grabbed by Jim Friest on the Algona 30. He went all the way, zig-zagging past tacklers into the end zone. The extra point was missed again. Touchdown Nullified That completed the scoring in the first period, although Clear Lake's Bill Stoyles grabbed an Algona punt and roared 80 yards into the Algona end zone. One of his mates clipped Algona's Ted Finley and the ball was returned to the Lion 47. The Lions put together a six play 50 yard march for a TD right after the start of the second period, with lanky Tom Fankel spearheading the attack and cjiv,. cling left end for the score from the 12 yard line. As usual, the Clear Lake attempt for the extra point was no good. The score remained 18-0 until the halftime intermission. Clear Lake wrapped up the scoring in the third round. Joe Skilling of Algona attempted to punt from his 43 yard line midway through the period. An on- chnrging group of Lion linemen blocked the boot and right end Arlo Lien of the Lions grabbed the pigs-kin on the Algona 37 and scampered into the Algona end zone to make it 24-0. The final tally came on the third play after the following kick-off. Jerry Cowan, freshman Bulldog halfback, gained four yards, was belted and the ball floated into the air. It was pulled in by Morehouse who went 32 yards for the score. Gary Low- inan kicked the extra point to run the count to 31-0. The rest of the contest settled down into a punting duel. Main feature of this duel was a pair of kicks by Algona's Barrel Davis that averaged 55 yards. Ont: traveled 63, the other 47 yards.

Upper Des Moincs-S elrated to the Lion 20 yard line late in the game, but the drive died. It was Algona's deepest move into, enemy territory. The winners held a 196-67 edge in total offense. Algona's top rusher was Cowan who got nine yards in three carries, while Dave Richardson ran for six yards and passed for 38 to account for 44 yards. Possibly the top Algona man was Ted Finley, who battled all the way on offense and defense before being ejected from the game for roughness. He made half the Algona tackles despite a broken finger on each hand.
