The win pushes Algeria's season mark to 6-1 and its conference record to 4-1, The Bulldogs entertain Iowa Falls • here Friday night and then travel to Spencer for a Clinic game Saturday night against Spencer at 8 p.m. With the Tuesday victory, the Bulldogs just about assured a two-team race in the NCC. Still trailing Clear Lake by a game in the win column, Algona artd the Lions are. now the only two teams besides Humboldt with less than three losses. ALTHOUGH the margin of victory was eight points, it was lots closer than that. In fact, Algona led by eight only one other time, late in the first quarter after a flurry of rebound buckets by Dale Teeter, Dave Walker and Bill Boldridge had put the Bulldogs in front 13-5 after they trailed at one point. 5-4. Clarion had the lead pared to 13-8 at the quarter and the second period was a standoff as the clubs ended the half at 2924. Mike Kalkbrenner, the second leading scorer in the conference, personally accounted for 14 of his team's 24 poin f /i and ended the night with 24 points — exactly half of his club's counters. f«*fef ended with 16 but pulled down 16 rebounds, bio- ek*d feuf shots and again did a fine job. Only some fine guarding by Bob Ras«mussen kept him from the 20's. Tee- t*f missfed 10 long shots and didrVf hit A bucket from past the 10-foot mark. The Bulldogs' lead was only 38-36 after three periods and Kalkbrenner's bullseye to open the fourth quarter knotted the game, It was tied again at 40-40 and then Steve Waller put in a rebound and Algona was irt front the rest of the way. THE. LOCALS led 42-40 with 5:32 left and after Espe's free tlv'ovv, still were ahead by only a 49-46 margin with 2:55 to go. A fine semi-stall added fr^ throws near the end to pad the margin. Dan Merryman pitched in 15 important points including a 7- for-7 night, at the free throw line. Waller got six of his eight points in the crucial last quarter and two rebounds at the start of the period were probably the most important points scored all night Algona fouled frequently in the first two quarters and the half ended with ll fouls for the Bulldogs and just five for Cl!», rion. It wasn't the officiating either. THE LOCALS won the game on rebounds. They got eight rebound baskets compared to just two for Clarion, and that was the difference and then some. Free throws also played a big part in the win. Both teams made 16 but Algona got theirs in 21 Chances while the Cowboys flubbed on 11 of their 27 chances.
