r v. Bulldogs Edge Swea In Real Thriller, 55-54 Algona's Bulldogs, who hadn't beeri top successful from the free throw line in three prior outings, made 11 of 14 to notch a thrilling 55-54 victory over Swea City's hustling Trojans in the high school gym before a screaming crowd Saturday night. The loss was the second in two nights by one point for Coach Marlyn Johnson's team (Ringsied dropped the Trojans, 48-47. Friday) and the win gave Coach Howie Sle- phenson's club a 2-2 mark for the season. It was also the second win in two nights for the locals, who got past Eagle Grove. 50-40, Friday night in a North Central Conference game at Eagle Grove. The Bulldogs have their work cut out for them this week. They host Humboldt, which hit 52 percent of its shots on the way to a 73-57 win over Clarion Friday, here Friday night, then travel to Webster City for a meeting with the league-leading Lynx Saturday night. Webster City completely overwhelmed Clear Lake, 4826, Friday night. Swea City, with Roger Conway hitting from the corners and Jim Elliott, Gary Larson and Gary Snyder hitting the hoop from other angles, took the lead after four minutes of play, 12-8, and appeared to be on the way to an upset of the Bulldogs. Algona rallied, as Gary Peer tossed in a total of 11 points in eight minutes to cut the Trojans' lead to 17-15 at the end of the quarter. Algona's offense clicked as well as at any time during the young season during the second quarter as the Bulldogs moved out in front, 35-28, at halftime. Tom Waller notched eight points, Len Funk five and Bob Percival four during the rally. The Algona lead went to 11 points during the third period, but Swea City chopped it to seven despite five more points by Waller, and trailed, 47-40, with eight minutes of action left. And it proved to be real action. With Conway and Larson hitting well and the Algona offense halted, with the exception of six points by Percival and two by Peer, the Bulldogs had to hang on for dear life to come out with their one point verdict. Time ran out, saving the game for the locals. There were several stars in the game. Peer's early hot streak allowed him to top the Bulldog's in scoring with 18 points. Very important cogs in the win were Percival and Waller. Bob grabbed 22 rebounds of 42 captured by the winners and flipped in 13 points and Waller set up several baskets with his accurate 'passes, besides canning 13 points., for himself. Peer and Waller each turned in three or four interceptions that thwarted the Swea City passing ;game at times. For the -Trojans, Conway put on one of the finest shooting displays seen this season with his 22 points. He got three field goals each in the first, third and fourth periods and two in the second, all from the corners. Larson battled for rebounds under both boards and added 13 points and Elliott wound up with 10 points. Conway. spearheaded the attack that alloved the Trojans to outscore, 20-20, in the final half.
