The Bears under Coach Beanie Cooper will put a 2-0 record on the line at Sioux Falls where they will meet O'Gorman, while Coach Keith Christie's club, now, 1-1, travels to Clarion and a North Central Conference meeting with the Cowboys. Not too much is known locally about O'Gorman (due to the distance of Sioux Falls from this area and lack of common foes with other clubs), but the South Dakota club normally is rugged. Clarion, wlnless in two outings dropped its opener, 21-6, toBel- mond, then lost a toughle, 13-6, to rugged Webster City on the Lynx's home grounds last Friday, so will furnish plenty in the way of opposition for the Bulldogs. Garrlgan unleashed one of the finest offensives In the history of Algona football last weekend, posting a resounding 65-6 victory over LeMars Gehlen, following a 32-13 cruise past Esthervllle here in the season opener a week earlier. Big Jack Midler, who now tips the scales at 210, along with the rest of the Bears, had a big night. Jack, junior fullback carried the mall 31 times and amassed 228 yards rushing. He got 135 yards in 29 tries in the opener, so now has 363 yards in 60 carries, an average of 6 yards per crack, in the two contests. Meanwhile, senior quarterback Bill Reeling engineered the offense and also had another big night. He ran for 103 yards, hit four of eight passes for 74 yards, running his total offense mark to 405 yards and returned the second half kickoff QF yards for one of his three touchdowns. Muller has counted three TDs in each of the first two contests and has scored 36 points, topping the club. Reding has four TDs and five points after for 29 points and Jim Youngwlrth has scored twice and added a pair of extra points (all on passes) for 14 points. The Bears are averaging 47.5 points per game on offense, while allowing an average of 9.5. Over in the Bulldog camp, coaches are pleased with the running of Randy Riedinger, Steve Waller, Gregg Betts, Rog Barr and Bob Farnham - and the 7- for - 10 passing of Barr in the Clear Lake contest, which found the locals posting a 26-7 bulge after an opening game 6-0 loss to Emmetsburg. Coach Christie came up with some changes for the Clear Lake fray - and might have others up his sleeve for Clarion, Against Clear Lake, he took his top yardage producer from the first game, Farnham, and used him very effectively at the blocking back spot. Bob responded by opening the holes that gave Riedinger, who gained 115 yards, and Waller, who ground out 69, room to negotiate gains all night. Barr/s passing (and the receiving of Tom Claude and Chris Conn in particular) added punch to the attack and kept the deal Lakers off balance much of the time. The Bulldog defense was again tops as Clear Lake managed only 26 net yards on the ground. Emmetsburg got 46, so the average against the defense in two outings is 36 per game. Algona's offense was given a chance to operate (which was not the case against Emmetsburg in the opener when 10 long punts bottled the Bulldogs up most of the night) against the Lions - and the result was victory, fashioned much like Ohio State teams have done It In the past - don't give the opposition much while grinding out yardage on the ground, with just enough passes thrown in to keep the other team honest on defense. And it paid off. Bulldog scoring is evenly distributed. Riedinger has seven points and Claude, Betts and Conn six each. The offensive average is 13 points per game, while the defensive mark is 6.5. Other games around the area Friday night will find Titonka traveling to Sentral and Burt to Swea City. Titonka and Burt are winless in two starts, Sentral split a pair and Swea City is 2-0.
