Algona Hi Edges Hampton, 13-12 Teeter And Martin Lead Mates To Conference Win Algona high edged Hampton on the latter's field, last Friday night, for a 13-12 football victory in the North Central Con. ference opener for both teams. It 1 came the hard way, for players and spectators alike, but the main thing is that the final Scoreboard count gave the verdict to the Algona gridders. However, it didn't appear likely in the first quarter. Hampton took the opening kickoff, marched to the Algona 14, then fumbled, reserve center Don Hagen recovering. One play later, Hampton had the ball back, on another fumble. A wet, slippery field made ball handling a chore all evening. It then took Hampton just three plays to tally, with Junckergoing over, but a try from placement failed, and Hampton led by 6-0. Play see-sawed between the 30-yard stripes to the end of the quarter. Starting the second half, Algona got its best break. Bob Pattern of Hampton broke through the line and raced 70 yards for a TD that was nullified by penalty, and Hampton then had to finally punt. From its own 35, Algona came to life and moved with a completed pass. Conn to Teeter, and a nice run - one of many - turned in by Dave Martin, to the Hampton 40, but momentum ran out. Conn's punt rolled dead on the Hampton 13, and four plays later Algona had the ball back on a return kick. Martin broke loose around his right end for a 30- yard scamper to the Hampton 20, added eight more, and a pass, Conn to Teeter, took it to the eight. Tom Fitzpatrick, with a bad ankle, was inserted into the lineup and plowed center twice, winding up on the two. He faked into the line a third time and Hampton was ready for him. Only thing is, he didn't have the ball. Conn stepped back, and dropped the pigskin into Dale Teeter's arms for an easy TD. Martin hit the line for the extra point, and the half ended, 7-6 in Algona's favor. Algona wrapped up the game, not knowing it at the time, early in the third quarter. Hampton's kickoff was returned by T schetter to the Algona 40, and Algona rolled to two straight first downs, Martin reeling off the major yardage. Then, on Hampton's 25, Martin came through the right side of his line on a delayed buck and found the way clear to the goal. Fitzpatrick's try for the extra point was stopped short of the goal, but Algona led, 13-6. Algona still held the upper hand the rest of the third quarter, with play across the midfield area. Starting the final period, Algona and Hampton exchanged fumbles again in the area of the Hampton 30, and then Hampton really began to roll, marking off four consecutive first downs, with -Gil Tidman, Hampton speedster, traveling the final five yards for the score. But Algona's line saved the day, They rared back and stopped the plunge for a tying point, and Algona still led, 13-12. An exchange of kicks and several plays later, Hampton was back to the Algotia 35, but at this point Bob Farnham fell on a Hampton fumble on his own 35, and Algona recovered its own fumble a moment later to keep the ball, but was forced to kick, Hampton, which seemed to have very little in the way of an air attack, tossed one from its own 40. which Dale Teeter nabbed in midfield and lugged back to the Hampton 20. Two plays lost three yards, and Conn swung to his left, probably with a pass in mind, found running room open, and dashed to the five where he was .downed, with the game ending a moment later. Coach Jim Hershberger's charges face Clear Lake, a 19-7 loser to Humboldt last Friday, on the Algona field this coming Friday night. Algona's line play was rugged, but spotty. The first and fourth quarters, if you were scoring by rounds, would have to go to Hampton, the second and third to Algona. Dave Martin's drive and speed were a deciding factor in the game, and Mark Conn's kicking toe helped consistently to keep the wolves away from the door. Bill Farnham, Claude, Bradford, Samp and Jones in the line were formidable, but the wide stuff gained ground for Hampton when the middle line gaps closed. Algona had a more diversified attack, however. Statistics: A H .'irst Down 7 n Ifds. Rushing 165 199 Sfds.
