Also tied for the loop top are Lincoln-Central and Thompson. 1 ARMSTRONG FALLS BY 59-13 COUNT Thompson — By far the, big gest upset of the night was Tho mpson's easy win here.

Mike Johnson raced over for a first period Trojan marker on a 35-yard run but the point try was wide. That was all of the Tro| jan scoring. The Satellites went into the lead when Mike Lee went over and ran the extra point, Ron Dacken got the second Sentral touchdown late in the second period and Jerry Nerem ran the extra point. Lee came back for a 3rd period touchdown on a three-yard run and Nerem got the final one on a 10-yard dash with Lee running the point. * * * BURT SHATTERED BY L-C, 61-0 Gruver—Lincoln-Central mov ;d into a tie for first with 4: irsthalf points enroute to a 6W iomecoming victory over Burt icre Friday.

The Bullpups tied it in the bird period when Steve Willrett capped a long march by dashing 5 yards on a pitohout from Jack Waller. Early in the fourth quar- ,er, John Chrischilles scored Algona's other touchdown on a 50- yard run. Out of the frying pan, into the fire! That'll be the position of Algona's Bulldogs this week as they tackle the No. 2 team in the North Central Conference — Webster City — after almost toppling the No. 1 club, Humboldt, last Friday night before losing here, 14-7. , H It's unusual to be calling IWebster City No. 2 and quite possibly this is a misstatcmtnt. Humboldt did baat the Lynx 7-6 a couple of weeks ago to take over the top. position in the conference with a current 4-0 record. Webster City is right in back with a 3-1 mark. Actually, after they posted .a 27-0 win over Iowa Falls, Who conquered Algona 13-0 the previous week, they are probably still the best all-round club in the conference. GAME TIME will be 7:45 p.m. at Webster City. This will be Algona's final road game.
