'y The win also kept the Bulldogs unbeaten in three games as they drill for a twin weekend battle with Humboldt there Friday and Webster City here Saturday . night. The Lynx wore ranked No..2 !n,pro-season predictions in the loop. (Meyer's 25 points highlighted this win but fine guard play by Rich Black, who notched 19 counters, wasn't to be overlooked. Several other boys distinguished themselves nice- lyin this Win. But the officials ended with the most of everything — a cool 10Q fouls in the JV and Varsity games. They whistled 49 in ithe opener and then oaime back with 51 in the varsity contest. Five boys fouled out and/two others were ushered to the sidelines in a brief flurry under the boards. THE TEAMS were never farther than two points apart until late in the first half .The game was tied nine times, the finfatl square-off at 21-21 after two Black free throws with , 4:44 left in the first half. Then Meyer tossed in two free throws and Dale Pedersen got a layup oh a sisal for a four-point bulge. The game was closer later on but Eagle Grove,never had the luxury of a tie at any point after that. /The half ended 32-27 ancl th'en Meyer really went , to work. He got two quick buckets to open the second half and two free throws a short time lalter to make it 39-35. Mike Belts and Black both hit to put the spread at eight, 43- 35i But brilliant foul-shooting* by; Bill Smith of EagHe ~ v " flhe ended with 14 of 18), ughit the count to 48-47.

Baigle Grove cut the lead to 54-52 on a layup by 'Mark Hogenson but Rogert hit from the side to even things up. Algona still led by a slim 58-56 count with 3:26 left before two Meyer teyups took the pressure off. :Black followed with a layup with 1:43 to go and that iced it. The Bulldogs ended wiltli seven free throws as the Eagles desperately tried for steals. Rogert and Betts, the only two juniors on the varsity, did well in relief roles. Betts hit four field goals before leaving on fouls and Rogert hit two key buckets. Although he got only one field goal, Tom Jones did a good job on the boards. .Hogenson followed Smith's 24 with 16 and after that no Eagle had more than eight points. THE ALGONA Junior Varsity turned,in their third straight win with ease as they took the opener, 58-37. They 'had a narrow 29-20 halftime lead before pulling far m front in the third period.
