Bulldog cagers, matmen win iidtte otieee 00 4 0 0010 late bunt gives 63-49 victory The .transition from foot' boll to basketball is a difficult one and it was never more nottcaible than Tuesday night when Algona and Emmetsburg opened their basketball seasons in the Catholic gym at Emmetsburg. Whtn thty wtrt finished, the Bulldogs owned a 6349 MMon opening victory but th«y should havo givon awards for btst blocking ' and tackling and not total points. That would have toft guard Dal* Padarson out in tht cold bacausa ha lad all Bulldog scorers with 15 points. Coach Howie Stephenson is faced with a big rebuilding task this fall and winter. He lost aill five of his starters 'from last year's club and it wiill take a few weeks for sarnie of the newcomers to find their places. One thing you can say for these new Bulldogs • they didn't fold Up under pressure. And despite the 14-point difference in 1 'the final scores, the &Hawks put on the pressure. ALGONA LED the entire first three quarters after two Rag Meyer free throws, he <hit 90% on 10 tries for the night, put Algona into a 2-0 lead. Rich Black and Pedersen fired home long ones and .Algona zipped to a 6-0 lead, Emmetsburg didn't score until over 3 minutes was gone in the game. Pedersen and Mayor dominated scoring in th.o first period as Algona lad 15-10. Bob Sweeney (No 12), who fouled out in the third quarter, fired an E-Hawk second quarter rally to pull within two, 23-21 at the half. Neither team got a second •half fieW goal until, 3 minutes , 12 ifeeMn%''''^re^tijpn^r in thfe *Wrtfj)erioa 'when Jon Cody notched a bucket. Algona kept ahead on free throws until Craig Taylor's three-pointer with 4:18 gone in the period built a 32-27 lead. Coady matched 'that production 12 seconds later on a rebound situation but Algonia began to pull away. Junior Hod Rogert, who looks to be a good one, hit three 'buckets in a spree that carried Algona to a 46-35 marg in with 7 minutes left in the game. EMMETSBURG suddenly caught fire and hit 12 straight points to take their only lead of the night, 47-46, with 4:58 left in the game. A pressing defense threw Algona into panic for a time during those hectic minutes. Black then tied it with a free throw with 4:06 left and Craig Taylor's two free throws gave Algona a 49-47 lead with 3:35 remaining. Pedersen and Cody toadied baskets with less than three minutes left and Algona led 51-49. Then Algona rolled homo a dozen straight points to finish the game and make it look lopsided, which it wasn't most of the way. This was a typical opening game effort for both teams wily a bit rougher and wilder than most. Bmmetsburg's Gerald Gjerde even played some moments without one shoe until time was called so he could fit it back on. Algona has some promise, Besides Pedersen's 15 points, which included seven field goals Craig Taylor came on in a reserve role to pop home 14. Meyer had 13 including those nine free throws and Rogert had six, all on field goals. You don't have to reserve any state tournament seats this year but this team is a team that will probably show great improvement m the season goes on and could be near the .500 mark or a little above at the finish. THf JUNIOR varsity had a much easier time, of it winning 'the opener, 61-38.
