The Wildcats are vastly improved from recent years, despite a resounding 55-0 loss to Webster City's potent Lynx last Friday night. Humboldt is tied for fourth in the conference with a 2-2 loop mark and is 3-2 for the season. The Bulldogs scored the first time they got their hands on the ball at Iowa Falls. Starting barely in their own end of the field, a 12 -yard pass ; to Dale Teeter, who was never better, and a 37-yard bolt by Dave Martin put Algona on the Iowa Falls two yard line. Martin then zoomed in for the TD and the score was 6-0. Tom Fitzpatrick was stopped when he attempted to plunge for the extra point. ' •. Algona got another chance moments later when Iowa Falls fumbled on the third play after the kick-off. Tom Jones recovered for the locals on the Iowa Falls 41. Martin gained six, then Mark Conn flipped to Glenn Tschetter who went the remaining 35 yards to score. Martin tried to get the extra point on an end run and was halted, so it was 12-0. Early in the second stanza, Iowa Falls launched a pass from deep in its own territory after an Algona punt. Teeter played the ball perfectly, snared it from the intended receiver and scampered 20 yards to paydirt on the fourth play of the quarter. This time, Martin smashed for the extra point and it was 19-0 Bill Farnham, who was injured late in the first half, recovered an Iowa Falls bobble on the Cadets' 12 yard line and three plays later Fitzpatrick went two yards to score, Martin went six, then four to put It on the two. Martin again bolted for the extra point and it was 26-0 at intermission time. The Bulldogs went 58 yards for their final tally after Tschetter intercepted a pass. Martin went eight, Fitz nine, Conn 11, then Fitz four before Conn flipped short to Teeter who later- aled to Martin, Dave zoomed 32 yards to score and Fitz scrambled for the extra point to make it 33-0 Late in the period, Iowa Falls recovered an Algona fumble on the Algona 26. The Cadets got to Algona's two when the buzzer sounded and scored on the first Six Winners, Pass, Punt & Kick play of the final round when Hornuni skirted end. The extra point kick split the uprights to make it 33-7. Iowa Falls got its last TD after an interception. Teeter dragged the Iowa Falls runner down from behind, delaying the TD, which came on a screen pass on the fifth play after the interception. Again the kick was good, so it was 33-14. Iowa Falls got to Algona's six yard line in the last minute of play, but the ever-present Teeter intercepted a pass on the two and ran it out • to the Algona 17 with 30 seconds left. ''' For the fifth straight contest this season, Martin topped 100 yards rushing. ' This time, he got 119 in 17 tries, an average of seven yards per carry. Fitzpatrick got 41 yards and Tschetter, who carried only twice, added 30 to the offensive total. The Bulldogs notched 11 first downs, Iowa Falls seven, while rushing for 219 yards and passing for 87 on four of five tries'. Iowa Falls completed four of 14 passes for 77 yards and got only 41 on the ground for a 118 total, compared to Algona's 306.
