Eagle Grove High 4th Vicfim Hampton Next Test Friday At Homecoming Algeria's potent Bulldogs put on a fancy aerial circus and steady running game to win an easy 40-0 victory over Eagle Grove in a North Central Conference game before a large crowd at the new Algona High football field Friday night. The win, fourth in a row without a defeat this season for Coach Jim Hrrshberger's team (longest winning streak for years), kept the Bulldogs in a first place tie with Clarion at the top of the loop. It also set the stage for the an, nual Homecoming celebration this Friday. Hampton, owner of an 0-3-1 record after a 45-0 shellacking by a ruffled bunch of Webster Citj Lynx last Friday night, will be oul to prove it is better than the record indicates. Prior to the Webster City defeat, Hampton, which has perhaps the largest team in the league, lied Acklcy, 14-14, then .topped a 12-0 decision to Clear Lake and a 13-6 decision to Iowa Falls. \Vetzcl & Williams Tally It took only six minutes and 21 seconds for the Bulldogs, to prove they had too many guns for Eagle Grove Friday night —' and two bombs, thrown by Tom Waller to Bill Wetzel and Jack Williams racked up the TDs that started the runaway. The first strike came from Algona's 4fi yard line with 4:40 of the first period gone. It was third down and six. Waller faded bad; and at the last moment spotted Wetzel stcaking through the Eagle secondary. He floated the ball downfield, Bill gathered it in or the 25 and scooted into the end zone. Waller's attempted place kick for the extra point went high and short. Two plays later, the Bulldog? got another chance — and they took immediate advantage of it. This time, Larry Hclmers, one of the classiest 127 pound linebackers around, fell on an Eagle Grove fumble on the Eagle 30. One play did it. Waller aimed one at Williams who made a fine grab five yards ahead of the line of scrimmage and zoomed for thr score. This time. Waller's place- kick was good and the score went to 13-0. A punt by the Eagles on thr final play of the first period got Algona going again. Starting from their own 34, the Bulldogs used only one pass and 10 running plays to make it 19-0. Williams got things going when he caught one good for 14 yards. Then Waller and We^el took turns carrying the malf and Waller capped the drive with a two-yard smash good for six. points. His extra point kick failed. (it) Yards In 4 Plays Algona wrapped up the first- Tuesday, October 9, 1962 Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines-5 half scoring with a sensational bit of passing late in the second quarter. It took just four plays to cover the 69 yards needed to score. The first pass went from Waller to Wetzel for 17 yards Waller then connected with Kiel Hutchins for 18 yards, then failed to gain on a smash into the line. Williams capped the march by coming up with another fine catch to score. He captured a well- tossed pass near the Eagle Grove 17 and went in standing up to make it 25-0 as the extra point attempt failed again. The last half was more of the same, except that after the starters had counted a TD on a 78- yard march early in the third period, the reserves took over anc! continued the assault (although it was slowed down) on the Eagles. Wetzel was the star of the TO march. He personally gobbled up 58 yards, including a 13-yard run for the touchdown, and his running was never better. Waller's placekick made it 32-0. Reserves Take Over The reserves moved in after Eagle Grove punted midway through the third period. And they went right to work. With a 29-yard run by Bruce. Suad a 15-yard scaniper by Mike liff getting most of the mileage, the Bulldogs quickly got to Eagle Grove's 15 yard line. Two holding penalties put the ball back to the 45 and apparently halted the march. However, the reserves weren't to be denied. Facing a third and 32 to go situation on the Eagle Grove 37, the first play of thu fourth period set up a score. Willie Steinman flipped short to Jim Abbott, who lateralcd to Wicklil'f who went all the way to the Eagle one before being pushed out of bounds. Steinman slammed over the goal line on the first play to make it 3«-0, then fumbled the pass from center to lose a chance for the extra point. Safety Scores Two The final two points were tacked on by Abbott moments later. Algona was threatening to score and Wickliff launched a long pass to Abbott near the Eagle Grove end zone. An Eagle defender grabbed the loss near the goal line, then was dumped by Abbott CONFERENCE STANDINGS W L T ALGONA 3 0 0 Clarion 3 0 0 Webster City .... 2 1 0 Clear Lake 1 1 1 Iowa Falls 1 1 i Humboldt 1 2 0 Eagle Grove 0 3 0 Hampton 0 3 0 in the end zone for a safety. The rest of the game was a defensive battle. Failure of a thrilling climax similar to the one against Webster City a week earlier dimmed thr Algona-Eagle Grove game a liUle. However, the Bulldogs were plenty sharp many times, especially when they needed to be, both on offense and defense. Just when Eagle Grove appeared to be getting an offensive rolling, the Bulldogs came up wilh the big plays to halt any threats. Coach Hershberger used a lot of squad members in this one — anc' undoubtedly many of the boys got needed experience that could prove valuable in the future. Wetzel led the Algona ground Attack with 81 yards in seven carries and an average of ll.G yards per try. Then came Sundet with 47 yards, Hutchins with 42, Steinman with 37 and Waller with 33. Waller also hit six of eight passes for another 167 yards. Williams caught three passes, good for two touchdowns and 78 yards. Abbott three for 40 yards and Wetzel two for 71 yards. Algona amassed 472 yards on the ground and through the air to 37 total for the losers. Don Miller was Eagle Grove's best bet as a ball carrier, getting 17 yards in nine tries.
