While the wiu, which enfleti aii 11-game winning; streak lor the locals and gave then: & 1^-2 seasoi, mark (ft-2 in the loop), probably locked up the title lor the Lakers,, there it always the possibility oJ aii upset - BO the Bulldogs still stand 8 • chance. Clear Lake now has an 11-1 loop record. Coach Howie Stephenson's Bulldogs, stil] one oJ the best teams, ever to perform here, hoBi u tough Clarion club in another conference frsy Friday, travel to Iowa Falls to meet the big Cadets, Feb. IB, then meet Hampton in a make-up contest Feb. 22 to close out the regular season. All could be close contests. Clear Lake lias two loop trays remaining. A standing room only crowd jammed every corner of the Clear Lake gym as the Bulldogs and Lions tangled. And both teams were tense during the first two period*.. Algona led midway in the second round, then trailed by five points at the hall before the massacre took place. From the start, it was apparent the Algona defense was upsetting the tall Lions, who range from G-l to C-C, and with Dale Teeter doing a terrific job under the boards, the Bulldogs put on quite a show. The defensive tactics of Craig Espe and Tom Claude resulted in numerous steals, very similar to the first meeting of the Bulldogs and Lions earlier in the season here, but this time, Algona couldn't liit the shots that could have put the home club against the wall. The Lions didn't set any records shooting, either, so the Bulldogs managed to hold slim leads through most of the first two periods. The score was tied twice, at 3-3 and 7-7 during the first eight minutes, then with Teeter and Claude each notching lour points, Algona was on top, 12-11, at the quarter. Algona's cautious style of play kept tilings under control early in the second stanze, with leads of 15-11, 17-13, 20-17 and finally 21-19 resulted. A string of seven straight Clear Lake points put the locals down 26-21 and the count was 28-23 at the hall. Things still didn't look gloomy for Algona fans. Four straight buckets by the Lions early in the third quarter actually wrapped the game up. The lead went to 36-23, then to 44-24, and finally 46-27 at the three-quarter mark as Clear Lake outseored the Bulldogs 20-4 during the eight minutes of the action. Bill Morisky and Ken Grabinski were the biggest problems, getting 12 points between them. At one time in the last period, the lead got to 62-39, thenAlgoua managed to close the gap to 15 points before the final buzzer. Algona won the earlier meeting, 69-56, also salting the win in the third quarter and inflicting the first loss of the season on the Lions, Algona shot 26 percent from the field during the night as Clear Lake held a 24-19 edge infield goals and 18-15 margin in free throws.

Bears In Rough Loss At Carroll Kuemper, 80-78 In a contest marred by too many fouls and questionable decisions, Garrigan's Golden Bears dropped an 60-78 decision to Kuemper at Carroll Saturday night. The loss, second in three games for the locals came after the Bears held slim leads through much of the fray - and after two of the team's ^hree top scorers, Dick Muller and Don Potthoff, went to the sidelines with five fouls. Coach Steve McCall's club, which missed a meeting with GramUle Spaldtng a night earlier as a result of some sort of virus Friday at Garrigan which flattened about 60 students, including several members of the basketball squad, travels to Emmetsburg and a meeting with Catholic Friday night, then hosts Estherville's Midgets, one of the better teams in the area, the following evening. The locals now have a 12-3 season mark. The Bears hit well from the field during the first period, and while they trailed by 4-2, 11-6 and 15-14 counts, managed to edge into a 20-19 lead when the buzzer sounded. Muller poked in five fielders and Potthoff and Bill Reding a pair each as Garrigan held a 10-7 advantage in field goals during the eight minutes. Five-for-five from the free throw line kept the Knights in the game. And while 51 fools were called in the entire contest, only six came in the first period, including four on the Bears. Potthoff, who canned seven points, Dick Bleich, Muller and Reding hit most of the points as the Bears held 24-21, 33-27 and 41-33 bulges in the second stanza before a late Kuemper surge chopped the lead to 42-39 at halftlme. By now, Garrigan's foul total had reached 10, one less than called on the home club. And 12 of 13 free throws took up the slack as the locals managed only five field goals. Two Garrigan regulars, Bob Smith and Reding, picked up their fourth fouls and free throws continued to keep the Bears in the battle during the rugged third period. Potthoff and Brian LaBarre were the offensive leaders as the locals held a very slim 60-59 lead with eight minutes remaining. The game was still up for grabs through the fourth quarter despite the fact Kuemper held a 78-71 lead with very little time remaining. Garrigan rallied, but couldn't snatch the win from the Knights. The Bears, with two men out on fouls and with the other three regulars carrying four each, were at a real disadvantage down the stretch. Muller flipped in 20 points before his exit, Reding got 19, Potthoff 17, Bleich 10, Smith seven and LaBarre five for the Bears, while Golwitzer led the winners with 19. The Knights were second place finishers in the recent CYO Tournament, fall. ing to St. Edmond of Ft. Dodge in the finals, 56-54. Garrigan's B-team ran its season mark to 9-3 with a64-52 victory in the curtain-raiser.
