Algona's Bulldogs, who seem intent upon capturing the North Central Conference champion" ship, enhanced their chances with big "Wins over Humboldl and Webster City '*' during ; thfe' week. end.

The 1955-56 team of Bob King held, the victory string record' all alone until Saturday night. The locals aren't shoo-ins for the title, however, as three loop games remain on the schedule tefore tournament action begins. Hampton Rough First up is Hampton — a team that can't be considered too lightly by the Bulldogs. Algona downed Hampton, 55-47, at Hampton Dec. 16 in the roughest game of the season (muscle-wise), but had to hang on for dear life to got the job done. In the earlier meeting, the point production of Chuck Streit, Len Funk and Gary Peer ;md the rebounding of Streit, Funk and Bob Percival offset the last-half surge by Hampton and saved the game — which was Algona's fifth in a row. Hampton has several fine players, including Jacobson, Jensen and Evans who scored well in the December mee'.ing. Hampton, who will be here Friday night, has lost several close decisions while posting a 4-7 record in the loop so far. One of the wins was a real big one, however, a 56-55 decision over Iowa Falls Jan. 20 that knocked the' Cadets out of a first place tie with Algona. Saturday night, the Bulldogs travel to Estherville for a meeting with a team that has been hot and cold all season. On certain occasions, the Estherville team has looked very good, according to Harold Shugart, former Algona coach now at Eslher- ville, who scouted the Algona- Webster City fray Saturday night. The Bulldogs then finish the conference' season out of town making trips to Clear Lake Feb JO and to Clarion Feb. 17. The Cnwbovs. who also meet low; Falls before the end of'the sea son, could settle the loop race They are the most improved team in the conference.

The Bulldogs hammered out a 25-16 first period lead, but the Lynx came right bpck to outscore the locals, 26-17, during the second stanza to knot tHe count. Algona fell behind early in the second half, but a combination of good shooting, fine rebounding and good ball handling put the locals ahead to stay at the end of the third round, 57-56. It took the locals only four minutes to build the lead to 67-60 in the final round and free throws kept them in front the rest of the way. Two Top 20 Outstanding features of the contest included the shooting of Ihuck Streit and Bob Percival the Bulldogs and Ades of the Ades hit seven jump shots rom well out on the right side )f the court in the first half, but 'ercival knocked the ball down lis throat most of the time dur- ng the final 16 minutes to almost halt him completely. Streit lipped in 22 points, high for his career, and Percival notched 20, vith most of his buckets coming on shots from the corner. The ball handling was pretty :ood most of the way, and the defensive clay was good. A routine stall, used by Alaona the inal .'Ha minutes, worked to perfection and forced the Lynx into fouls. Webster City outshot Algona from the field, getting 27 field goals to 22 for the locals, but Algona was almost invincible from the free throw line, hitting 32 of 41 tries, top effort in years.
