VICTORY! BUT EAGLES LOOM FRIDAY Drouth Broken By 14-7 Win Over Em'burg By Don Smith Algona's Bulldogs pulled themselves out of several deep holes fetid grabbed a surprising 14-6 •brin from Emmetsburg in the season opener Friday night before a large and "enthusiastic crowd at the fairgrounds. The win was the first on the gridiron for an Algona team in 17 games after two winless seasons. Eegle Grove, which proved ' impressive with a 26-0 verdict over Manson al Eagle Grove Friday night, is next on the slate for the locals. The contest will be played at Eagle Grove and will open North Central Conference play for both teams. North Central C o n f e r e n ce ^ swept nil opposition aside Friday. Besides Algona and Eagle Grove, here are other results: Clarion 13, Britt 0; Clear Lake 13, Forest City 6; Hampton 19, Ackley ?: Huniboldt 28, 'iwin Rivers 0:' Iow;i Falls 26, Eldora 13: and Webster City 20. Boone 0. The Lynx rhalked up their twentieth win in a row. Early Fumbles Hurl Emmetsburg attempted to wipe up the field with the Bulldogs right from the start, but never completed the job. Algona received the opening kickoff, ran to a first down in two plays, then lost the ball when Jim Moxley fumbled on the 50. There was a light rain falling, early in the game. Emmetsburg's Alan Henrikson lost three yards on the E'- Hawks first attempt, but Jim Murphy zipped all the way to the Algona end zone on the next play with the aid of an offside tackle and nice downfield blocking on the part of the umpire, who kept Dave Richardson of Algona from a possible tackle "That's the preferred stock I bought?'

DIAMOND'S' Algona Touchdown Clincher Jim Cowan, an offensive standout for the Algona Bulldogs la iheif 14-6 opening game win over Emrnetsburg Friday night, is shown here crashing through the E'Hawk line for the game's clinching The locals, who won their first game in two years, held a slim 7-6 lead when Cowan banged across with less than a minute of play remaining to put the game out of reach of the visitors.

ON ABSOLUTELY ALL halfway to the goal line. Algona's line stopped the point after attempt and the E'Hawks led, 6-0, with only .2Vfe minutes of the first period gone. 4 It looked as though Emmetsburg was going to -make quick work of the game. A second Algona fumble 'gave the visitors the ball on Algona's 45 yard line one play after the ensuing kickoff. Murphy again took over. Goal Line Stand He roared from the 30 to Algona's five yard line and gained two yards to put the ball on the three 'before the Bulldogs came to life and put on their first goal line stand .of the night. Henrikson lost five, then two and was held for no gain on his third attempt and the Bulldogs took over on their own ten. Jim Cowan was tossed for a five yard loss and Dieter Gruner gained a yard before Richardson reared back and fired a long strike to Jerry Rupp that gave the locals a first down on their own 35. Cowan gained a pair and Richardson hit Gruner on a 26 yard pass that gave the Bulldogs a first down on the E'Hawk 37 as the first period ended. An incomplete pass was followed by an 18 yard scamper by Cowan to the Emmetsburg 19. The locals gained four yards in the next two plays and Richardson fired again toward Rupp The pass fell harmlessly, but interference put the .ball on thi 1 one and Richardson crashed ovei for Algona's first touchdown in nine garrfes. Robbie Hutchins, who has learned all about kicking extra points during the last couple of weeks, calmly put one through- the uprights and Algona had all it needed, a 7-6 bulge. Emmetsburg was off and running again after receiving the kickoff and marched all the way to the Algona three yard line, but a penalty and the final goal line stand of the night cut the rally short. Algona took over on its own eight just 'before the half ended. Last Half All Algona The visitors held the uppei hand, 140 to 102 yards rushing and .passing, but the Bulldogs completely dominated play during the final two periods, picking up 112 yards to the losers '33 in 24 minutes. Aignpa threatened to score late inthe third round, but lost the ball on downs, on the E'- Hawks 14. Another Algona threat early in the fourth period wound up on the Emmetsburg. 12. Th& third move into Emmetsburg territoraiby the locals paid off with a Tnp. The drive began on the E'- Hawk 30 and found Jim Cowan at the throttle. Jim carried on three of the five plays needed to get the touchdown, including the scoring thrust from the one, and hardly an.y Algona back ever put out more to get a score. Hut- .chins again booted the extra point to give the Bulldogs a 14-6 lead with only 47 seconds of play remaining. 77 Yds For JUchardson The Algona offense was divide ed among five men.
