Algona Hi & Garrigan Are Gridiron Victors Bulldogs Take 18-0 Win From Clear Lake Algona's Bulldogs put a tight clamp on Clear Lake's offense during the final two periods to register a not-easy 18-0 victory over the Lions before a large crowd in a North Central Conference game here Friday night. The locals ran their season record to 3-0 with the victory. Clarion will attempt to roadblock Coach Jim Hershberger's club here this Friday - and the Bulldogs will be out to improve their record with a win the big Homecoming game. Clarion dumped Iowa FaUs 12-7 In their loop opener and dropped a tough 7-0 decision to Webster City in the second conference start Friday night - and the Cowboys always have a rugged club. Algona had the upper hand most of the way against Clear Lake, but the offense sputtered enough at times to allow the visitors to remain within striking distance. The Bulldogs took the opening kick-off and moved quickly 47 yards, with the help of a 15- yard penalty, to Clear Lake's 15 yard line. The Lions stiffened, held for downs and took over on their 21. Roger Ashland, Clear Lake's 220-pound fullback, led a Lion drive that petered out on Algona's 42, but the Bulldogs fumbled the ball away at midfield, giving the Lions an opportunity to go in for six points. Ashland fumbled, however, at the Algona 23 and Max Miller recovered for the locals. Moments later, the Lions posed another threat, but Quarterback Ken Grabinski was snowed under by Dave Martin for a nine-yard loss on a fourth down play and the Bulldogs took over on their own 34. A 66-yard march nearly took too much time, but Algona finally got on the Scoreboard with 57 seconds left in the half to take the upper hand. Martin, Glenn Tschetter and Bob Farnham turned in the slashing runs that moved the ball to the Clear Lake 43. Then Mark Conn hit Dale Teeter, who made a fabulous grab, and the pass put the ball on the Lions' 17. Martin was contained twice, but a screen pass to Tschetter, with an important "block by Bill Boldridge paving the way, found Glenn moving Into the end zone. A smash. for the extra point was halted. A bouncing snap from center on an attempted punt resulted in the locals taking over on Clear Lake's 29-yard line near the end of the third period and Algona was off-and-running. In six plays, with Martin carrying all-but one, Algona scored, with Dave going the final three yards to paydirt. A pass attempt for the extra point failed and it was 12-0. The final break came four plays later. This time, the Lions lost the ball on a high snap from center on a punt situation and Algona took over on the Clear Lake two. A penalty put the ball on the seven, but Randy Riedinger went one and the final six to score. Again, a pass attempt was killed by the invaders - so the extra point wasn't added. Clear Lake, with the help of a 15- yard penalty on the Bulldogs, got to the Algona 28 shortly before the end of the fray, but the locals took over and had control of matters when the final buzzer sounded. Martin's all-around play again sparked the Bulldogs. He was the top ball carrier in the contest, getting 101 yards in 20 carries on offense and numerous tackles on defense. He also managed to set up many tackles for eager teammates during the night. Coach Hershberger also lauded Don Hagen, Bill Boldridge, Max Miller and Bob Bradford for vigorous defensive play. Bob Farnham ran hard into the line for the Bulldogs, winding up with 45 yards as the locals out- gained Clear Lake, 218-100, during the night.

A large crowd was on hand, despite winter-like weather which featured high winds and finger-numbing coldness. Coach Beanie Cooper's club Is at home again this weekend hosting Ft. Dodge St. Edmond Saturing evening. The Garrigan St. Edmond series has furnished plenty of excitement since the schools first met on the gridiron and this fray promises to be no different than the rest. The Bears made a stiff defense pay off, despite some early errors caused for the most by the weather. Garrigan held O'Gorman to minus-three yards in the final half and added a touchdown after taking a 7-0 lead in the second period. Operating with Bill Milder at quarterback in place of injured Bill Reding, the Bears sent Dick Bleich, healthy for the first time this year, Milder and Chuck Geilenfeld on the slashing runs that produced the win. O'Gorman got a chance to score (and its only one all night) right after the opening kick-off when the Bears lost a fumble on their 26 yard line. One play later, the Bears got the ball back on their own 12 following a fumble • by the Knights. There were no other threats in the first period, but the Bears were in O'Gorman territory most of the second round. They got to the Knights' 10, but lost a shot at six points when a pass was intercepted. A great catch by Tom Wagner of a Milder toss ate up 12 yards in the march. Moments later, the Bears had the ball on 0'Gorman's 38 after a punt. The finest running of the night paid off with a touchdown in just five plays. Bleich slashed for 16, then Milder got 14, three and two before Bleich smacked over from the three. Reding booted the extra point, with the ball drifting in a wide STRANGERS!

Upper Des Molnes Tuesday, Sept. 28, 1965 arc through the uprights, to make it 7-0. The Bears threatened early in the third period, but were halted on the Knights' 12 after Bleich, Milder and Geilenfeld had marched the club 37 yards, then got another chance near the end of the quarter when a ground ball punt by O'Gorman wound up on the visitors' three. Three plays lost two yards and a field goal attempt by Reding was blown off course, ending the threat. The Bears had another chance four plays later when an attempted punt on fourth down lost 21 yards and gave Garrigan the ball on O'Gorman's eight. It took four plays, with Milder going the final yard to make it 13-0. Reding's boot was no good. O'Gorman's final series of downs presented something normally not seen in the average contest. Due to a rugged Garrigan rush, resulting in losses, and penalties, the Knights found themselves facing a second down and 56 yards to go, then a fourth and 60 before punting. O'Gorman started on the Garrigan 41 and wound up booting from its own nine. Bleich's return to the lineup aided the Bears no end. He wound up with 76 yards in 30 carries, Milder, who did a good - job at the throttle on offense, netted 50 in 13 carries and Geilenfeld punched out 17 yards at vital times. the losers with 25 yards in 11 trips, while Jerry Burns got 19 in six. The Bears' rugged defense, which allowed only 26 net yards on the ground, was led by Dick and Jack Muller, Don Potthoff and John Schneider.
