Algona wins season opener 27-7
Algona went down and scored on the opening drive of the game and never looked back in picking up a 27-7 season opening non-district football victory over the Forest City Indians in a non-district contest played at Algona on Friday, Aug. 25.
The home team started fast as Samonte Bawden returned the opening kickoff 28 yards to their 35-yard line. Jacob Durant bulled his way 14 yards on the first play from scrimmage and seven plays later the Bulldogs were in the end zone to complete a 65-yard drive.
The red-and-black’s touchdown came on a 15-yard run by Wyatt Wegener. The conversion run failed as Algona led 6-0 with 8:36 left in the game’s opening 12 minutes.
