The Bulldogs will make their third straight road trip Friday to Clarion before coming home for four home games'in their final five starts. Clarion, loser to Webster City's ninth- ranked Lynx by only a 13-7 count, will be a formidable foe for sure. But Coach Keith Christie's club showed Friday they have an'offense to go with their stingy defense, which held its op-, ponent to less than 100 total yards for the second straight game. The Lions bagged only 98 yards and 59 of those were on the ground. They picked up only 39 yards by rushing and in the last half Were held to just four rushing yards and 15 by passes. MEANWHILE the locals were grinding out 16 first downs and j87 total yards. Quarterback Rojer Barr, who was greatly inv Droved over his initial starting assignment at Emmetsburg, hi' •vi six of nine passes, mostly short ones, and gained good yardage on keeper plays. But he had great backfield help in Randy Riedinger, Steve Waller, Bob Farnham and Greg Betts, who plowed through big holes in the Clear Lake line for gain* of five and six yards most of the night. A.leom showad a huge contingent of local fans (my how those Bulldogs followers support their team) by taking the opening kickoff and marching 68 yards in 11 plays for a touchdown. Only pass in the drive was the last play, a shot to end Tom Claude who grabbed Barr's toss on the Clear Lake 20 and cut to the east sidelines to get in standing up. Before that, Waller and Riedinger bulled for four, five and six yards in the three-first down drive. Riedinger fan the extra poin to make it 7-0 with just 5:1 gone in the game. The locals started anothe drive late in the first quarte when Clint Young gobbled up loose ball on the Algona 40. This time it took 13 plays and four first downs with Riedinger doing ening some dandy holes. It seldom a Bulldog runnef molested much,until he got ft couple of yards by the serin* mage tone. . . Defensively, the Bulldogs were superb. There were no apparent serious injuries to mat 1 the victory celebration. But it'll be hard work this week because Clarion will be by far the best club Algona has faced this sea son.

He carried seven times for 26 of the yards and the final three for the TD with 4:20 gone in the second psriod. Waller bagged 24 yards in four carries. Barr took the point in on an option play to make it 14-0. AN EIGHT-YARD punt set up Algona's third first half touch- clown. 'Algona couldn't move in three downs but the fourth down kick was fumbled on the Clear Lake 14 and Claude snatched it. Then Greg Betts got the honors as he wheeled off his laft tackle and went the 14 yards to pay dirt, knocking down two pkyors in the process. The try for point by kick failed. Clear Lake mounted its only sustained drive of the night in the final four minutes of the half after the kickoff and went 61 yards in 10 plays with a second down touchdown pass from Ken Grabinski to Al As'hland delivering the points from the 12-yard line. 9 Algona mounted a good drive at the start of the fourth quarter, starting from midfield but it died on a fourth down on the Lion three-yard line, BUT CLEAR LAKE couldn't move the ball and Algona took over on the Lion 41 and this time they went all the way. Reserve end Chris Conn snared a Barr pass from the 12- yard line and he was just plain lonesome when he got it. There wasn't a Lion within 15 yards of him. There was 2:02 left in the game and that's how this happy night ended. Of course, the backs got lots of credit in the win but just as at the Emmets burg game, the front line was op DIAMOND'S MOONLIGHT MADNESS SPECIALS 150 Sweat Shirt* — Henleys — Surfers — Short Sleeve, and all colors — Values to $2.49 — Some I.
