The Bulldogs, now possessors of a 3-2 season mark and 2-2 North Central Conference record, travel to Iowa Falls for a shot at the Cadets tomorrow (Friday) night. Humboidl's undefeated steamroller crushed Iowa Falls Friday night giving the Cadets a 2-2 conference mark for the year. Eagle Grove thumped Hampton, 34-14, and Webster City walloped Clear Lake, 41-6, in other conference frays Friday night. Algona waited less than a minute to take the lead in the Clarion contest. Clarion received the kickoff and lost the ball to the Bulldogs on the second play when fullback Vince Hansen fumbled. Jim Cowan recovered for the locals on the 50 yard line. Score On First Play The first Algona play was a "Lulu all the way around. Dave Richardson faded to pass as Cowan raced down the middle of the field through the Clarion secondary. Richardson fired high, wide and handsome but short of the mark, Cowan retreated through the Clarion halfbacks, snared the ball and scurried into the end zone for six points. Robbie Hutchins boomed a placekick through the uprights and the locals led, 7-0. Clarion received again and proceeded to march all the way to the Algona 20 yard line, a 60 yard drive, only to lose the ball on downs. The Bulldogs couldn't move, so sent Jerry Rupp bach to punt, which he did, right into the ribs of fullback Hansen of the Cowboys. The ball took the correct hops and barely reached the Algona end zone where Hansen recovered for a quick six points for Clarion. Duane Skiye attempted to slant into the end zone for the extra point, failed and Algona led, 7-6. Algona moved the ball well on the next series of plays, rolling from its own 29 to the Clarion 17 yard line early in the second period. A hand-off was misfired on a fourth down and one yard to go situation and the Cowboys recovered on the 13. Clarion Takes Lead A five yard penalty and a 13- yard blast by Hansen made it second and two on the 26. Jerry Weyker grabbed a hand-off and zoomed down the middle on a 74 yard touchdown jaunt to put the visitors ahead, 12-7. This time Skiye's run for the point after paid off to make it 13-7. An exchange of punts followed shortly and set up Clarion's third score. Cowan fumbled a Cowboy kick on the Algona 35 and the Clarion club was off and running again. This time it was Skiye's turn. After two plays gained only a yard, Skiye slashed for 34 yards and six points. Weyker plunged for the point after to run the count to 20-7. 85 Yard Cowan TD Another spine-tingler followed CLARION 20 Junior High Has Peppy Grid Squad . . ° — ••" • i ii ^"•^"•"•"""•••••••••^•^••i M«!L fo 3 tb ? 11 ^H^'^^'io 0 ^* 11 '!, 6 ^," 8 S r8t five s ames this * eason ' are sho «™ »» *n« *feove ft •?* m ° owne d Humboldt, 13-0, and fell to Emmetsburg, 14-6, and Britt, 19-0, while the seventh •priii, ^-u.

(UDM Newsfoto-Engraving) on the ensuing kickoff when, Cowan took the ball on a reverse from Dieter Gruner on the Algona. 15, ran to the right around the left flank of Clarion's pursuers and shot 85 yards into the Cowboy end zone. It was 20-13 then and Hutchins' toe made it 20-14 at halftime. The second half was see-saw all the way, except for three plays, which came at the end of the third round and start of the fourth. The Cowboys were forced to attempt a punt on the last play of the third quarter. The snap was high, causing the punter all kinds of trouble and allowing Dennis Jergenson of the Bulldogs to crash through and block the kick. He chased the bounding ball down and recovered it on the Clarion 13. Cowan was' dropped with a thud for a three yard loss on the first play of the final period, then zjpped 16 yards on a delayed hand-off into the Clarion end zp/ie on the next to tie the count, 20-20. Hutchins (called' Alex the Tpe by happy teammates after the game) trotted in for the point \after attempt and booted it home to win the game. The kick cleared the crossbar by less than three feet, but it was more than enough. Clarion went into a spread offense from then on, but Algona's defense wasn't fooled and the Bulldogs hung on to take the win. Defensive Standouts On defense, Algona had several stars. Howie Funk, offensive end and defensive linebacker, came up with three or four tackles that halted Clarion drives, Jergenson got the all-important punt in the chest and recovery and Cowan and Richardson were lively on pass defense and -got plenty of tackles. Joel Harris, Francis Bjustrom and Jerry Rupp also were in on lots of action. Offensively, Cowan was again top gun. He ran for 72 yards from scrimmage, returned two kicks for a total of 105 yards and took the only completed Algona pass for a 50 yard gain. Weyker of Clarion, who was injured late in the first half and failed to return to action, gained 96 yards in nine tries to lead the visitors.
