It also was the eighth time in a row Algona has beaten Webster City in basketball and not since Jan. 27, 1962, have the Lynx beaten an Algona high school team on the cage courts. Coach Howie Stephenson is 11-1 over the Lynx in his six-year coaching career hare. So Algona is now 8-1 in the North Central Conference and next up is Hampton there Frilay. A prior game with Hampton was postponed because of '.ce until Feb. 22 and thus this is the first meeting of the two teams this year. The Bulldogs will return home Saturday night tomeet Estherville, fourth place team in the Lakes Conference. The Little Midgets will visit Algona a second time Feb. 12 to meet Garrigan on the Bear court. Despite their victory string, he Bulldogs still trail Clear _ake in the North Central con erence by a half-game on the von side. The teams meet Feb. 1 at Clear Lake and the winner most certainly will take a share of the title, if not the whole works. ONLY FOUR Algona boys broke the scoring column Sat- irday at Webster City and 3oach Stephenson only used six. But the Bulldogs took command »arly and turned in ose of their finest defensive games of the season. Guards Craig Espe and Bill Boldridge were superlative on defense, bagering the Lynx into numerous mistakes. And under the boards, 6'2" senior Dave Walker had his finest night as he rebounded as never before. Dale Teeter maintained his 24.3 scoring average with 24 points but he took a back seat to .ome of his mates, particularly Espe. This little guy gets better every game and without a doubt, s one of the finest guards in northern Iowa despite his size and the fact he is still only a lunior. For the second straight game, he batted 100% on free throws and now has 14 straight in two games. He finished with 16 points. Dan Merryman got 11 and Walker a dozen as the Bulldogs cashed in on 19 of 22 free throw tosses. The teams played close throughout the first quarter which ended 14-13 in favor of Algona. Then the Bulldogs began to go. Walker dumped two free throws to start the second quarter and Espe converted a three-point play to make it 1-13. The Lynx never got closer than four points after that. ALGONA had a 34-26 halftone lead. The Lynx threatened briefly to start the second half and were 39-34 down when Simpson hit from the corner. The Bulldogs then reeled off 13 straight points. First Walker got a rebound bucket and Merryman followed with two free throws. Teeter began warming up by splitting the cords on a long one. Espe got three on a drive shot and free throw and Teeter hit twice more to make it 52-34. That was the ballgame. Steph- onson again sent his charges into a half-court offense and Merryman and Teeter both got lay- ups to open the fourth quarter and Algona led 58-39. There was no reserve game because the contest was played as a part of the Junior College doubleheader.
