Bulldogs Bop Iowa Falls And Spencer In 2 Days Algeria's Bulldogs put on a fine display of a pattern and control- type offense In the afternoon at the Northwest Iowa Coaches' Clinic at Spencer Saturday, then put to good use in fashioning a 69-51 win over Spencer before the same group and area fans that night. The victory was the sixth straight and upped the season mark to 8-1. Coach Howie Stephenson'sclub now begins the second go-around in the North Central .Conference race - and the next game will furnish plenty In the way of challenge. Eagle Grove's Eagles, in last place in the loop race, are the only club this season to down the Bulldogs (they did it 65-64 here Nov. 27), and to say the locals will be out to avenge that loss is putting it mildly. The win over Spencer was accomplished without the services of regular starting forward Dan Merryman, senior, who stayed home with the flu, but Stephenson's bench, gaining strength every time out, came through in fine style to help fashion the win. Dale Teeter, who in the next game or two should become the new all-time career scoring leader here, slammed home 14 first-quarter points, CraigEspe, one of the finest little guards in the state, got four and Steve Waller, who played much of the time in place of Merryman, added two, as the locals out-scored the home club, 20-16, in the first quarter. Things got a little rugged for the Bulldogs in the second period when Teeter and Espe had three and four fouls, respectively, with three minutes of action remaining before halftime. They sat out the rest of the half and the stall offense preserved a 35-24 halftime bulge for Algona. Control offense was employed by the Bulldogs much of the time during the final half - and with Teeter and Dave Walker doing a good job under the boards the locals fought off every challenge by Spencer. Teeter, Walker and Espe got all the points for the Bulldogs during the third quarter as the home team nibbled the lead to 52-42 at the buzzer. Fine balance, with five men scoring, allowed the Bulldogs to up the final bulge to 18 points as the machine-like Stephenson- men added eight points to the third quarter margin to win going away. Teeter's game-leading 28 points upped his total for the year to 208, an average of 23.1 per contest, and gives him a Keep Cage Victory String Going Box score: ALGONA (69) Teeter Walker Espe Boldridge Laws Waller FG FT F 9 11-10 3 4 5-3 8-7 0-0 3-2 7-5 5 2 0 1 2 4 3 3 0 21 34-27 15 SPENCER (51) FG FT F Schumann 5 j_i 5 PuUen 6 2-14 Wolthuis 55-35 Shields P 5-3 1 Mills 0 3-3 4 Freeberg 0 0-0 1 Schwarok 4 2*0 1 « Snyder p 0-0 1' 20 J8-1J 22 career total of 807, just 23 shy of the all-time mark set by Sig Wood two years ago. He has a minimum of nine more games this season, barring unforeseen injury or illness, so might shatter the 1,000 point barrier before he checks in his equipment for the last time. Espe canned 17 points to push his average to 11.3 and Walker, who battled hard all night for rebounds and steals, added 11. Waller got seven. Pullen and Wolthuis each got 13 and Schur- mann 11 for the losers. Algona's defense was alert all night, holding the running home club without a fast break field goal. Several times, when Spencer tried to send a sleeper down for an easy bucket, Teeter faded with him and either intercepted the ball or knocked it away, halting the threat. Bill Boldridge led the Bulldogs in steals, notching four as he continued to do a fine job as a regular in place of Tom Claude, out following an appendectomy. Algona's Bulldogs cooled the fast-breaking Spencer team, 69-51 in one of three games at the Northwest Iowa Coaches Clinic Saurday night at Spencer. The win upped Algona's record to 8-1 and gave the club six straight wins.

Algona played without the services of Dan Merryman, regular forward, who was ill with the flu. However, reserves Steve Waller and Brocke Laws filled in and turned in fine jobs Teeter slammed in 28 points and turned in another good job under the boards as he climbed to within 23 points of the all-time career scoring record here. (UDM Photo by Ray McCarty) Top Effort, Bulldogs Belt Iowa Falls 80-51 Displaying their best all- around offense and defense of the season, Algona's Bulldogs raced to their seventh win in eight starts before a huge crowd here Friday night, dumping a highly-regarded Iowa Falls elub, 80-51, in a North Central Conference game. The win kept Coach Howie Stephenson's team right on the heels of the loop-leading Clear Lake Lions, who downed Hampton the same night, Clear Lake has a 6-1 conference mark and Algona is 5-1. Except for one spurt by the losers midway in the first quarter, which closed Algona's lead to 15-11, there was never any doubt in the outcome. The Bulldogs got off to a 5-0 lead and were never headed. By the end of the first period, with Dale Teeter getting 10 points, Craig Espe eight and Dave Walker five, Algona's lead was 25-11, with the locals scoring the final 10 points in the first eight minutes of action. The onslaught continued through the second stanza, despite the fact the Cadets held the upper hand under the boards. Algona led, 35-17, then cooled slightly before taking a 41-25 lead into the locker room with them at halftime. By this time, three men, Teeter with 12 and Espe and Dan Merryman with 10 each, were in double figures for the hot locals. Many fans, surprised by the 16-point Algona halftime bulge, got further proof of the Bulldogs' supremacy in the third stanza as the lead went to 6236 with everyone getting into the scoring act. And Teeter's rebounding and steals by Espe and Bill Boldridge set up many of the points. So, the game was put away with eight minutes left. Coach Stephenson got a chance to use all of his bench through much of the final round - and the reserves didn't give the visitors any chance to close the gap, garnering three field goals and seven of nine free tosses to ice the cake. Algona held a decided edge in every department of the game, with a 33-30 edge in rebounds, 13-4 bulge in steals, a 2-2 standoff in blocked shots, a 30-21 margin in field goals, a 20-9 bulge in free throws and 11 fouls to 18 for the visitors. Teeter led the scoring with 20 points, followed by Espe and Merryman with 16 each and Walker with 11, while Jim Klein notched 13 and Don Sail 10 for the losers.
