Tne outcome of the Algona- Clcar Lake battle was in doubt until the final period. The Bulldogs scored first with 3V4 minutes remaining in the period. Algona took the opening kickoff and began a determined march from the Clear' Lake 48 yard line after a fine return by Jim Moxley. The Bulldogs ground their way to the 20, were set back to the 35 by penalty, then due to a classy 23 yard run by Cowan advanced to the Clear Lake 2 yard line where they had a first down and goal to go opportunity.

A fumble by the Lion quarterback. Jon Lee. gave Algona another chance and it paid off. Dave Richardson slanted to the eight and Cowan buzzed into the end zone to make it 6-0. An nttrrnpted placrkkk by Robbie Hutchins foil to the right, short of the mark. The Lions, determined to make a contest of it, took the following kickoff, and depending mostly on running plays, carried from their own 32 to Algona's 25 in ive plays as the first quarter ended. Algona became stubborn and finally took the ball on downs on its own 21. Cowan fumbled on the first play and the Lions were back in business on the Algona 25. This time it appeared certain the Lions were going to score. Fortunate Fumble Eight smashes at Algona's line put the ball on the Algona two yard line where it was first and goal. Barrel Morehouse headed for the right side of the Algona line and fumbled when hit. Jerry Rupp picked up the ball in the end zone and the threat was halted. An Algona march fizzled on Clear Lake's 42 just before the half and the Lions took over. A fourth down pass by the visitors was intercepted by Rupp as the buzzer ending the second stanza sounded. • A 32 yard dash by Cowan to Clear Lake's 28 gave the Bulldogs a chance to score early in the third round.

Kenneth Walter picked 48 as high game total. Mrs Bradford had 16 games correct, with 70 for high game total. There were quite a few others with 16 games correct.

Lion Ahead T\vo short runs and a 15 yard penalty on Algona put the ball on the Clear Lake 49 yard line. Morehouse took off and zoomed into the Algona end zone to tie the count at G-6 with half the third period remaining. A per- feet placekick by Jim Brown gave the Lions a 7-6 lead that looked pretty big. Gruner and Cowan spearheaded an Algona drive to the Clear Lake 25, but Cowan fumbled and the Lions took over on their own 17. Clear Lake moved on the ground to the 47 where a fumble by Lee was recovered by Howie Funk of the Bulldogs on the final play of the third quarter. It took the Bulldogs just five plays to take the lead, 12-7 Gruner went for eight, Cowan got four, Moxley one and Funk six on an end-around to put the ball on the Clear Lake 28. Cowan then sliced to the right, cut back a couple of times and dashed into the end zone for the marker. A placekick attempt by Hutchins was no good. The final Clear Lake march of the night carried to Algona's 23 following the next kickoff. Morehouse was tossed for a nine yard loss on a fourth down and Algona took over. Clear Lake had the ball again within a couple of minutes following on Algona punt. Quick Score Lee fumbled on the Clear Lake 45 and Cowan grabbed the ball and headed for the Lion end zone. He was caught and downed on the five, but Gruner smashed into the end zone on the next play to make it 18-7 and Hutchins split the uprights to close out the scoring with ten seconds of play remaining, time only for a kickoff. Statistically the locals outgain- ed the Lions, 289-232, and all the Algona yardage came on the ground. Cowan's splendid dashes accounted for 188 yards in 22 attempts, an average of 8.5 per carry. Gruner got 67 yards in 10 tries, a 6.7 average, while Morehouse, who wrapped most of his yardage up with his touchdown dash, got 72 yards in 10 tries to lead the Lions.
