A CLASSIFIED AD WILL GET FAST RESULTS Algona high and Garrigan, both winners of home contests last weekend, remain on friendly soil this Friday and Saturday as they host a pair of always rugged foes - Clarion and St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge. The Bulldogs, 3-0 for the season and 2-0 in the North Central Conference, will pull all stops In an effort'to dump the Cowboys and remain at the top of the loop. They will tangle Friday in a Homecoming game at the new Athletic field. Clarion has split a pair of loop frays, dumping Iowa Falls 12-7 In the opener, then dropping a 7-0 decision to tough Webster City, with the Lynx scoring In the final minute of action to win last Friday's game. The Golden Bears, fresh from their first .win of.tbe,.campalgn, i ,. a 13-0 victory over' Sioux Falls . O'Gorman Saturday 'night, .will' put a 1-1-1 season record on the line against St. Edmond. The win over O'Gorman was fashioned by a rugged defensive crew and the slashing runs of several backs on a night better designed for ice hockey, The Bears held O'Gorman to minus three, yards In the last half of the con-. test, with the visitors getting only 35 yards in the entire game. Dave Martin, senior who plays halfback on offense and tackle on defense for Coach Jim Hershberger, once again led the Bulldogs to victpry in the Clear Lake contest. He repeatedly came up with the big plays, both on offense and defense that spiked the Lions' chances at a win. Algona didn't pull away until the - fourth period - and barely managed to lead at halftlme, with the first TD coming with 57 seconds left before Intermission. The defense - and poor ball handling on a couple of punt situations cost the losers the final two tallies In the last quarter. The Bears, like the Bulldogs, didn't sack their win until the final stanza. They put a TD and extra point on the board in the second period, then harassed the Knights with their defensive play until making it pay off with a final touchdown in the last quarter of action. Dick Bleich, hurt in the season's first fray at Estherville, played full time for the Bears and added plenty of punch to the ground game, which the club was limited to on the frig id night. He picked up 76 yards, more than half the team's total, and Bill Milder, installed as quarterback by Coach Beanie Cooper when Bill Reding broke his thumb, slammed for another 50 during the night. The Bulldogs and Bears will each have to be rarin' to go if they are to improve upon their records this weekend. Sentral, co-champion in the State Line conference last season, will put its 2-1 record with the first loss coming at the hands of Titonka, 13-7, Friday, on the block at home Friday against the unbeaten Armstrong Tigers in a loop fray; Burt will host Titonka's loop leaders in another State Line conference contest; and Swea City, with a 2-0-1 record so far, will go after a State Line win at Thompson in other games in the area this weekend.
