The home club took the opening kickoff and went 80 yards in eight plays to take a 6-0 lead. The TD came on a 32-yard pass from Bob Young to Bob Burns who outdistanced the Algona secondary. Bob Campbell's place- kick attempt for the extra point was wide. That was the only threat in the first period until Algona started a march from its own 21 just before the gun. With Dieter Gruner and Jim Cowan taking turns toting the leather, the Bulldogs went to the Iowa Falls 12 as the period ended. Longest gain was a zig-zag 39-yard dash by ^ Cowan. The Cadets held and took 'over on the 12 on the second play o the second period. Fumble Costs Touchdown A fumble set up the seconi Cadet touchdown. Algona los the ball on the 33 and the CadeU scored in five plays despite a 15 • yard penalty. A pass from Young to Tom Hansen coverec the final 26 yards. Campbell' placekick attempt was again faulty, but Iowa Falls had a 12-0 lead with 3:20 left in the half. Algona closed the gap with a long march in the third round The locals got underway as Cowan returned the kickoff 22 yards to the Algona 40. He ac counted for 20 yards in two carries and the Bulldogs moved to the Iowa Falls 34, then a long Dave Richardson pitch was hauled in by Jerry Rupp and the locals were on the lowd Falls three. The Bulldogs lost the ball on downs on the Iowa Falls eight four plays and a penalty later, but got the ball right back on a fumble recovery on the 15. Cowan skirted right end to the three, went to the one and Richardson crashed for the TD. Robbie Hutchins, Algona's extra point specialist, came in to attempt the try for the seventh point and when the snap from center went high, grabbed the ball, slanted to the left and crashed into the end zone to make it 12-7. A seven play, 70-yard march by the Cadets ran the count to 18-7. Campbell missed the extra point. Fake Puni Fails Algona battled to stay with the Cadets, but gave the home club a chance to .score again minutes later when a fourth-down fake .punt failed and the Iowa Falls club took over on the Algona '35- yard line. Five plays later it was 24-7. Bob Burns scored the TD from the 10-yard line and again Campbell's placekick attempt was no good. The Bulldogs promptly chopped the margin to 24-14. After receiving the kickoff, the locals went 56 yards in three plays to score. The first play was an incomplete pass, then Gruner slammed ahead for 26 yards and Cowan shot to the right and dashed into the end zone at the end of a 30-yard run. Hutchins split the uprights with his place- kick. Iowa Falls went 62 yards after the ensuing kickoff to sew the game up. Prins scored from the one to cap a nine-play march and Campbell added the extra point to make jt 31-14. Ball carrying honors for the Bulldogs went to Jim Cowan, who gained 123 yards in 15 carries for an 8-2 average. Gruner was next with 47 yards in nine attempts and Richardson h'it six of 21 passes to account for 107 yards through the air.
