SPORTS THURSDAY, JAN. 13, 1966 ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE-5 Algona belts Spencer in Clinic game, 69-51 Algona's Bulldogs enhanced their Northwest Iowa prestige (they are currently ranked No. 6 in this section of the state) by defeating Spencer high school in a Northwest Iowa Coaches Clinic game at Spencer Saturday night. The game was a battle of the runnerups in the Lakes and North Central Conferences. And the Bulldogs had far the best of it, despite playing ' without No. 2 scorer Danny Merryman, who came down with the flu during the night Friday. The Bulldogs, now 8-1 for the season and with a winning skein of six games, move back into conference action Friday night at Eagle Grove against the onlv team that has beaten them all season. The Eagles escaped witn a 65-64 win earlier this year and certainly this must be ranked as one of the big upsets of the season, considering the fact it is their only NCC victory thus far. DALE TEETER neared the all-time Algona high school scoring record with 28 points in one of his finest efforts. He has now scored 808 points in his career and is just 22 short of Sig Wood's all-time record of 830. Teeter is currently splitting the cords at a 23.3 average and Rebound scrap lias a phenomenal 85 per cent record from the charity line. Algona led 20-16 at the quar ter and then moved ahead at the half 35-24. Teeter and Espe both sat out the last three minutes of the first half with three and four fouls respectively bul Algona played control ball anc still managed to up their leac by four points. THE BULLDOGS were ahead 54-42 after three periods as they slowed Spencer's fast-break to a walk and picked off numer ous interceptions in the process Behind Teeter in scoring were Espe with 17 points and Dave Walker with 11.
