Garrigan marched 74 yards to paydirt, using up 14 plays ea- route. Jack Midler slammed for three, three aad lour yards to get it started, then vent seven before the locals were penalized five. Tbe big guy then crashed four twice before Tom Black picked up seven on a pitch. Black got another pair before Reding scooted around right end OQ an option, going 34 yards to tbe Kaemper seven yard line. A penalty on tbe visitors moved it to the three and it took four plays to get tbe score. Rpriing booted the eztra point to make it 7-0. Pirotte got tbe Knights back into the game right after the second half kick-off, sparking a 14-play, 61-yard drive that found him diving in for the TD from the two yard line. When Bob Schreck missed tbe eztra point kick, the Bears will still in control at 7-6. However, tbe lead was short- lived. The Bears tried three plays, lost a yard, and were forced to punt. Pirotte and Co. were off again from the Garrigan 41 - and six plays later had the lead for good, 12-7, when Pirotte went three yards up the middle. This drive was spearheaded by Stalker's 21-yard skip around left end. Again the boot was no good. Garrigan got to Kuemper's 28 yard line at the end of the third round, but a four yard loss and two incomplete passes killed the drive early in the fourth stanza— and the Bears never got another chance to threaten. Kuemper rounded out the scoring, marching 69 yards, with Pirotte slanting the final 15 for the TD, in 14 plays, then going 38 yards in eight plays, with Pirotte (who else ?) scoring from tbe one. Tbe extra point boots were no good, but it didn't make any difference in tbe final outcome. Tbe Knights played ball-control football, launching only three passes all afternoon, with one complete for a minus two yards. However they ran 65 plays on the ground, with Pirotte carrying the amazing total of 45 times for 188 yards, an average of 4-2 per try. Stalnr got 70 is 11 carries for a 6,4 mart.

Upp-r D« TUESDAY, OCT. 18, 1966 A typically smooth operating band of Webster City Lvnx hammered oat a 32-0 victory over the Algona Bulldogs at Webster City Friday night in a North Central Conference fray that was punctuated by a heavy rain storm and jighfriing display. The Bulldogs now have two home games remaining on their 1966 slate. The will host Eagle Grore next Friday and Hampton in tbe finale Oct. 28. Both are loop frays. The Eagles are half a step ahead of the locals in the standings at present after dropping a 33-0 decision to league- leading Humboldt Friday and have a 1-4-1 season mark compared to Algona's 1-5 record. To say the elements were against top-flight play Friday night would be an under statement Tbe first half was not bothered too much by tbe weather, but just before the third quarter kick-off, a downpour made conditions almost impossible. The Webster City win was methodical - as naiai - The Lynx, possessing more qualified talent than anyone in the loop, hung up a pair of TDs in the first period and another in the second to lead, 20-0, at halftime. The opening score came on the fifth play of the game. A 40- yard blast by Chuck Gate wood into the end zone climaxed the 67- yard drive that took just 2:08. Gatewood got 54 yards in three carries. The extra point boot went astray and it was 6-0. Six minutes later, the home club ran the count to 13-0 when Gatewood, who got most of tbe mileage during a 46-yard scoring drive, crashed into the end zone from the seven. This time, Tim Shelton's place kick was good. Algona moved well following the next kick-off, with Steve Waller and Bob Pamham smashing for good gains that carried to the Lynx's 34 yard line before a pass interception halted the threat. Algona got the ball right back when Waller recovered a Webster City fumble on the Lynx's 48, but the Bulldogs were forced to punt after they reached the 35. Webster City then drove 80 yards, with 15 coming on a roughness penalty against the Bulldogs, to make it 20-0. Actually, the Lynx scored twice before the points went on the board. Tim McKinney went 20 to paydirt, but the Lynx were penalized, so on fourth down, Al Larson hit skittery Andy Luke with aflat pass and the latter tip-toed down STANDINGS W L T Humboldt 500 Webster City 410 Clarion 3 1 1 Hampton 230 Iowa Falls 230 Eagle Grove 131 Algona 140 Clear Lake 140 KOSSUTH COUNTY PORTS *Sentral Only County Team, State Line Loop, To Win • Exploding for 35 points in the first half Sentral rolled to a 41-0 victory over Woden-Crystal Lake in State Line action at Sentral Friday night. Sentral holds a 3-2 league record with Woden- Crystal Lake having a 0-4 mark. Sentral gained a 12-0 first quarter lead on touchdowns from Jerry Nerem who scored on a two-yard run 'and Mike Lee who added a 10-yard run. In the second quarter Sentral tallied 23 points.

Owen Kerber scored on a 24-yard pass from Lee to close out the first half scoring. The final touchdown was scored on a 75-yard run by Russ Johnson. the sidelines to score. Shelton's kick made it 20-0. Gatewood got his third touchdown with 3:50 gone in the third period, going seven yards, and McKinney chalked up the last TD when he rambled 79 yards after gathering in an Algona punt with 1:19 left in the same quarter to wrap up the scoring. The Bulldogs didn't give up and hustled all the way, but were outmanned. In fact, the final quarter was practically all Algona, but the locals couldn't put together a sustained drive to the goal. The smashing runs of Waller, Randy Riedinger and Farnham the passes of Rog Barr and catches of Tom Claude and Chris Conn moved the locals at times, but the home club always managed to call a halt before the threat became serious. Except for a couple of lapses, the defense was again adequate. The winners, however, did manage quite a margin in rushing and passing during the fray. Webster City gained 196 yards rushing and passing the first half to Algona's 65 yards on the ground - but last half statistics were washed out by the rain. On offense, Waller, Farnham and Riedinger all managed to chop out nice chunks of yardage for the Bulldogs, while Gatewood who had 120 yards gained by halftime, was the Lynx main threat all night. Lake, despite his lack of size, proved to be a formidable foe and very tough to bring down. In other loop frays, Hampton dumped Iowa Falls, 13-7, and Clarion edged Clear Lake, 6-0. Nerem and Dacken were offensive standouts for Sentral. Randy Briele and Less Luedtke stood out on defense. Most of the game was played in a driving rain. Sentral out- gained the visitors in all departments, tallying 10 first downs to W-CL five. Yards rushing gave Sentral 273, while the visitors totaled 145. Net yardage was 311 for Sentral and 145 for the visitors who attempted two passes but completed none. It was also Sentral's Homecoming, and Mike Lee was named King and Holly Krause, Queen, for the event by popular school selection. - o- THREE-WAY TIE IN LOOP STILL REMAINS Friday night*s State Line results found Armstrong, Lincoln- Central and Thompson still locked in a three-way tie. Armstrong took a 40-0 win from Swea City with Jim Rooney and Dave Love each scoring twice for the victors in the game at Armstrong. The loss put Swea City in a tie for fourth place with Sentral in the standings. Thompson hafl an easy time at Burt, winning 35 to 0, at Burt's Homecoming. Burt, undermanned, put up a game fight and to their credit held tbe score within reasonable bounds. Lincoln-Central, playing at Titonka, was a 19-0 victor, in the closest game of the night. At halftime L-C led by only 7-0, but the Indians were gradually worn down between superior power for the visitors and bad weather.
