Bulldogs Notch Clear Lake Win, 26-7 Edge A grind 'em out running game, plus an accurate short passing game and rugged ground defense pushed Algeria's Bulldogs to an easy 26-7 victory at Clear Lake in the first North Central Conference game of the season before a large crowd of local fans Friday night. The victory leveled Algona's season mark at 1-1 and set up a meeting with Clarion's Cowboys there this Friday night. The Cowboys must be rugged, because Webster City's ninth rated team had to go all out to post a cozy 13-6 victory over them Friday night. So it's apparent the Algona-Clarion meeting will feature a pair of good defensive ball clubs that use the running game a majority of the time. Humboldt dumped Hampton 197 and Iowa Falls rolled past Eagle Grove 20-6 in other loop frays Friday, so the four winners lead the league after one night'sjeague play. Algona, thwarted all night in a shutout loss at Emmetsburg a week earlier, needed only 5:12 to get on the Scoreboard after receiving the opening kickoff at Clear Lake. The Bulldogs' Steve Waller, Randy Riedinger and Roger Barr used 10 plays while moving the ball 38 yards to the Clear Lake 29 and Barr then fired the first pass of the game, a soft one over the center which was fielded for the score by sure- handed Tom Claude. Claude got the ball near the 20, zig-zagged past the lone defender and went in standing up. Riedinger added the extra point with a blast up the middle to make it 7-0. The teams later exchanged punts and Clear Lake, after completing a pass to the Algona 33, lost the ball when Al Ashland fumbled and Clint Young of the Bulldogs recovered on the 40. A one yard loss preceded a five yard pass from Barr to Bob Farnham as the quarter ended. Eleven plays into the second stanza, the Bulldogs added another TD to their edge. This drive featured the smashes of Waller, Riedinger and Bob Farnham, with Riedinger getting the TD on a three yard slam. Barr added the extra point on an option and it was 14-0. Waller and Riedinger had the long runs with a pair of 13-yarders. When Mike Callanan of the Lions fumbled an Algona punt about 3 1/2 minutes later, the Bulldogs got another shot at the goal line when Chris Conn plopped on the pigskin on the Clear Lake 15. Gregg Betts slammed into the end zone on the first play to make it 20-0. The snap was fumbled on the point after attempt so there was no chance to add to the total. Then it was up to Clear Lake, a club that wound up with only 26 net yards rushing all night, to put together its lone offensive march. The Lions took the kickoff on their own 38 and in 10 plays, including four passes, moved 62 yards to paydirt. A pass from Ken Grabinski to Ashland scored from the 12. Earlier passes by Grabinski ate up most of the yardage on the way to the TD. Pat Cookman booted the extra point and it was 20-7 athalftlme. There wasn't a penalty called during the first 24 minutes, but the second half was only a couple of minutes old when it appeared a "homering" job had gotten underway. An "Algona march was halted on the Clear Lake 22 early in the third quarter, with a 15- yard penalty partially responsible, and right after that a questionable pass interference call allowed Clear Lake to get out of a hole. *******ftA*************************! | Upper Des Moinesi SPORTS However, the flag-waving seemed to halt right there and the rest of the game was all Algona. The Bulldogs drove to Clear Lake's three yard line early in the fourth period, but were halted, then came roaring back after a punt, marching 41 yards for the final TD. Again, it was Riedinger and Waller on the ground, with the payoff coming on a Barr to Conn pass for 11 yards. Conn was all alone when he made the catch. Waller was stopped short on a pitchout as the point after failed. Algona's defense was real stubborn for the second straight week, giving up only 26 yards on the ground (for a 2-game total of 72), with everyone on that unit singled out for praise by Coach Keith Christie and his assistants. They included Conn, Tom Claude, Brocke Laws, Dave Camp, Young, Larry Munger, Bob Farnham, Betts, Tom Jones, Don Hagen, Riedinger, Phil Bode and Rod Rogert. Riedinger topped the club on offense, getting 115 yards in 25 trips for a 4.6 average. Waller ground out 69 in 17 tries for second honors. Barr added 20 yards on the ground to 68 through the air on seven of 10 passes as he quarterbacked the club to victory. Grabinski accounted for all of Clear Lake's passing yardage and Bob Hankenson was the best bet on the ground with 22 yards in eight tries. Bob Farnham, who led the locals in yardage at Emmetsburg, was switched to wingback and his blocking chores helped Waller and Riedinger chop out chunks of real estate during the fray.

Coach Wayne Baker's club will travel to Burt for a State Line Conference meeting with the Bears this Friday. All the scoring Friday night occured before the half. Larry Johnson darted 18 yards for Swea City's first TD in the opening period, then Mike Johnson dashed 72 yards for one and 12 for another in the second stanza. Woden - Crystal Lake threatened early in the second period, but couldn't dent the Swea goal line after reaching the five. Mike Johnson wound up the top yard-getter for the winners with 120 yards rushing. The defensive play of the Trojans was above par all the way around.
