The final count was 59-49. Not since Jan. 27, 1962, has a Webster City team beaten Algona in basketball. Only once since Stephenson took over the head coaching job has Webster City beaten Algona. That's a 9- year span so you can see the Lynx might be getting an inferiority complex one of these days. Some new heroes emerged from Algona's second win in three conference starts here Saturday night and hot the least was senior guard DSle Pedcrsen. Me almost single- handedly kept Algona in the game in the early minutes and finished with 24. Most of the points came from long range too. The other lad who came in for more than his share of laurels was Tom Jones, who didn't start for the first time this season and who sat on the bench for three quarters of the game. BUT WHEN HE was called upon in the final eight minutes after Denny Richter went out on fouls, he turned in his best performance of the year. Jones got only two points but he hauled down a half dozen key rebounds in those crucial moments and blocked a coii- ple of shots along the way. The Bulldogs needed all hands in the final quarter when Webster City put on a closing rush and threatened to steal a game Algona dominated from the opening moments. The Lynx led only once when Tom Osboe opened the game with a drive shot. It was tied at 4-4 and 10-10 before Richter put Algona in front for good with a side shot. Up until his bucket, Pedersen had canned eight ot the first ten Algona points. Rog Meyer, Richter and Black helped with the scoring load in the second period as Algona broke away from a 1412 lead to a 27-13 spread midway in the second period.

THEY CLAMPED a pressing defense of their own on the Bulldogs and for a time it had Stephenson's troops completely rattled. The Lynx got seven straight points and then Pedersen took over again. . First he hit three times from the tide with hit itft* handed push the! and after Meyer counted a free throw, he got a steal for a 42-31 Algona lead. Webster City scored six straight points to end the third period and Richter went out with 15 seconds left. Jones' appearance got the 'Bulldogs going again after the Lynx had cut the spread to 42-38 on reserve Ted Williams' drive shot. Rich Black hit three big baskets in the final quarter and Algona gradually eased back into an 8 and 10-point lead for the win. Meyer ended with 11 points including seven more free throws and Black fired home 10 points from the field. Webster City got 13 points from Tim Shelton (No. 35) and Tim McKinney (15) and a dozen from Williams. ^ 'Hampton is the next Algona foe here this 'Friday night. THE JUNIOR varsity got back on the victory track also with their fourth win in five starts, a 59-55 conquest of the Lynx yearlings in a frantic first game. Algona led 37-24 at the half before the visitors put on the press to start the second half. Steve Chrischilles led Algona scoring with 15 but Paul Christensen and Max Laird, the latter turning in a fine performance, had 13 each. Dave Lowman bagged 10, Greg Allen five and Tim Black 3 to round out the scoring for 'Coach Keith Christie's club. ft pf 7-8 2 2-2 3 0-2 0-1 (M) 00 CM) ALGONA (59) fg Meyer 2 Taylor 0 .Richter 3 Pedersen _____ 12 Jones 1 iBarr 0 Betts 2 TOTALS 25 9-13 18 WEBSTER CITY (49) fg Biggs : 2.
