Swea City & Sentral win loop games; Thompson unbeaten SPORTS Thompson, an also-ran in football since the, State Line Conference was organized and given scant consideration this season, turned in its second straight loop victory to placa itself squarely in the title picture as the league begins its third week of action. For the second straight week, Thompson dumped a pra-saason- favorite as it ripped Lincoln- N Central 28-12 .witti* thrdta" ftrst period touchdowns'. L-C came within a 21-12 halftime margin Mino for fine defensive tackle TEXACO'S PREP OF THE WEEK but no closer. This week, the title picture should clarify considerably when Thompson- travels to Swea City to help celebrate the Trojan's Homecoming game. The winner of this game, along with Armstrong, should emerge the fav- ontas for the title. # * -x- SENTRAL POSTS; , ; \ftfN OVER TffdtiKA Fenton—Sentral high school, .ed by senior quarterback Mike L.9B, drubbed Titonka 27-7 here Friday night.

Thompson at Swea City. Sentral at Armstrong. Woden-CL at Lincoln-C, CALVES — Triplet calves were born to a Brown Swiss cow named Perfect Angel on Sept 11. The family, Which belongs to the Lelund Steens, Elkader is doing fine. Algona's Bulldogs finially come home after three straight road trips, and Iowa Falls comes to 'town Friday night for the annual Homecoming Game. Coach Keith Christie's men have lost two of three games but except for a couple of pass defense lapses,'the Bulldogs could ba unbeaten with a win and two ties at this stage. Certainly Friday night's 13-6 oss t'o Clarion could have been averted by a couple of breaks. Take for instance Algona's first drive which carried the ball to he Clarion 27-yard line. It was fourth and two when rarnham burst through for what was certainly a first down. L'.t ?oach Keith Christie tell the est. . ... "Actually,, it was net the officials fault," he said Sunday. "They marked the 1 ball with plenty of room for a first down and then when they turned to the sidelines to see how it lined up with the first down marker, a Clarion kid kicked the ball back a yard." AND . SO WHEN the . final measurement came, Algona lost its first down by inches and quite possible a touchdown which would have changed the complexion of the game coiir siderably. And then with 58. seconds to go, a Clarion pass play ended on Algona's four-yard line. The Clarion receiver got double coverage from Rod Rogert and Greg Betts., But just as the pass neared its mark, Rogert (not Baits) fell down in front of the man. "Even then, if the pass had wasn't out for football !•§* yMr but who hat don* i<IW§ job in th* dtfanslvo MMNMMMry with v«ry liMlt t*p«rl»nc*. *'l think Brock play«d as elOM t* his potential it any <*MM|,*» th. fl.ld at ClaHort," Kotth said Sunday. GREGG BETTS "Has big night" been a good one, I think Betts would have been able to reach over and knock it down," Christie recalled. "But it was low and with Rogert out of the play, the receiver had a chance to reach down and grab it." So Clarion was on the four and two quarterback punches took it over with 9 seconds to play: The second lunge appeared to have finished a half-yard Hie Bulldogs came out of tftc game with no serious injurife*. Tom Claude sustained a badly bruised back. A trip to the doctor Saturday indicated it is nothing serious. t SO NEXT it is Iowa Falls, ' loser to Humboldt 14-6, and 1-1 like the Bulldogs in the conference, "They'll be a batter team ' than Clarion, I'm sure," Christie t said, "They pushed Humboldt all over the field before losing Friday and they'll be the biggest team we've faced this year." The Cadets are a running team, operating off an unbalanced "T" which will give the Bulldog coaches some defensive problems this week. They are not too' fast but their physical size 'worries the coaching, staff. 1 "I just hope they don't wear oiir kids down," Christie : said. '' Algona's big problem, .with the loss of their only speedster Rich Black before the season got started, is to run outside. The short but the Cowboys still had another time out left and prob-* ably would have made it on the final play of the game. CHRISTIE was not unhappy with the play of his team although he felt'the interior line could have done a better job on defense. Larry Hunger did a fine line- backing job and was in on 21 tackles. Bob Farnham ran well and Betts certainly had a fine night with an interception, a beautiful defensive save on a sure touchdown pass plus a couple of good runs. And Christie had praise too for Brock Laws, a kid who Bulldogs haven't been able to do it and thus opponents are jam* ming the middle. ^ Christie hopes to get some outside speed and punch' this week with an offensive change or two.

The Trojans are now 2-0 in the conference while Burt is win- ess in three games and 0-2 in ,he loop. Mike Johnson raced to two iouchdowns on runs of 13 and 32 yards and passed to Randy Newlin for a 45-yard touchdown play for Swea City's first touch- dpwn. Larry Johnson dashed 72 yards for the second Swea City marker. The Trojans led 20-0 after one quarter and 20-6 at the half. Burt got its first marker on a 12-yard pass play from Wayne Lavrenz to Howard Batt. The Trojans added touchdowns in both the third and fourth quarters, the last one on a 20-yard return of an intercepted pass by Bill Mino. The Bears scored late in the fourth quarter on a pass from Lavrenz to Bat for 10 yards. Jim Ruhnke ran the point.

Second place was won by Richard Moe of Algona with three misses and a 40-point guess. Third place was won by Arnold Andreasen of Minneapolis with a 47-point guess and three misses. On the honor roll with four, misses were Bill Smith, Ronnie Reefer, Ronald Eischen, Jane Fraser, John Fraser, Jim Hoffmann, all of Algona; Michael Jackson, Lone Rock; Dale Oberhelman, Corwith; and Bob Morgan, Denison. Nearly 50 contestants missed just five games and the rest were strung out all the way to 13, which placed Paulette Daniels on the Mourner's Bench.
