Bulldogs Make It 6 Straight A.H.S. To Face Webster City For Loop Title Algona high rolled up 33 points In the first half against Humboldt on the Wildcat field, Friday night, to win its fifth conference game and sixth in a row for the season. The final score was 33-13, The first half was all Algona, with the Bulldogs going into the intermission with a hefty 33-7 lead. But the second half was a different story. In fact it had a pattern that followed the Iowa Falls game a week before, with the Bulldogs grabbing a big, early lead, and the opposition staging valiant but futile comebacks in the second half. Next Friday night is the "Big One." Algona hosts Webster City, perennial producer of "the team to beat" in the North Central Conference. Both Algona and Webster City now have 5-0 records in the loop. Other North Central Conference results Friday: Webster City 34, Iowa Falls 7; Clarion 20, Eagle Grove 0; and Hampton 33, Clear Lake 6.

Tschetter, Fitzpartick and Martin combined yardage on a scoring march after the opening kickoff, Fitzpatrick going over for the opening tally. Martin ran the extra point and it was 7-0 and looked easy. Larry Scobba's kickoff, excellent all evening, was downed on the Humboldt 30, and the Wildcats punted back four plays later to the Algona 37. Again it was Martin, Fitzpatrick and Tschetter, with Fitz breaking through the right side of his line to the Humboldt one on the key play. Tschetter lanced across for the second TD, and a Mark Conn to Bill Boldridge pass added the extra point. It was 14-0, and looked even easier. Humboldt returned to the 34, fumbled, and Fitzpatrick recovered on the next play on the 39. Again the backfield sent a good play variety at the Wildcats, and Bob Farnham, in at fullback, cracked through for the third TD. A pass, Conn to Dale Teeter, added the point and it was 21-0 with only a couple of minutes gone in the second quarter. Humboldt came to life a trifle at this point, making its first first down, before being forced to punt. Algona's attempt at a screen pass was intercepted by Humboldt's Worthington on the Algona 18, and from there the Wildcats took it in, with Worthington scoring and Kuhlman kicking the extra point. The score was 21-7, One of the game's electrifying moments came a minute later when Glen Tschetter took the kickoff on his own 15 and raced down the sidelines for 85 yards and a 27-7 lead for his team. The plunge failed. As the half neared, Dave Martin ! Upper DesMoinesjl SPORTS Friday At contributed a 53-yard run and the final Algona TD, darting through his right side and slanting wide to outrace all Humboldt pursuers. A pass attempt for the extra point failed and the halftime score was 33-7. Starting the second half, Humboldt seemed to have packed away a dose of vitamins. After taking the kickoff, the Wildcats drove to a fast first down on the Algona 22, and Doug Marso scampered for the distance and a TD on the next play. The kick was short. Algona 33, Humboldt 13. Humboldt from this point on was a different team. Dale Teeter intercepted a pass on the Humboldt 45 to stop one threat, but Humboldt began to stop the Bulldog running game. Humboldt was threatening again as the third quarter ended, but Algona held for downs with Teeter slashing through to throw the ball carrier on a key play on the fourth down. A backfield fumble was recovered by Humboldt on its own 38 and the Wildcats reeled off two first downs, Algona holding on its own 30, but forced to kick a few plays later. A Humboldt aerial carried to the Algona 42, but Humboldt's passing generally was ineffective and Algona took over on downs on its own 41. Humboldt didn't budge, and got the ball back on a punt, rolling up two more first downs until a 15-yard penalty halted the drive. Coddington of Humboldt was ejected from the game at this point. Humboldt tossed in a team of reserves, and on the final two plays of the game, Algona lost a total of 35 yards, as two pass attempts were smeared far back of the scrimmage line. Algona ran up a total of 13 first downs, two by penalty, while Humboldt counted 12, one by penalty, with nine in the second half. Coach Hershberger's squad emerged without any serious injuries, although Kent Hoover, regular tackle, saw no action for the Bulldogs. He may be ready for Webster City, Friday night. For the sixth straight game, Martin topped the team on the ground, again gaining more than 100 yards during the night. He has bettered that total each game this fall.
