ifj sin Algona wins district 69-46 Teeter hits 28 points; needs 13 for record! Algona high school earned its third straight sub-state berth here Friday night by outclassing North Iowa Conference champion Buffalo Center in the district finals, 69-46 on the Garrigan court. The Bulldogs now move opposite the winner of the Storm Lake—Ida Grove game. Lots of experts figured Algona had beaten tne two best teams they would face in the district earlier in the week. They were right, too. Either Garrigan or Swea City could have handled Buffalo Center, judging from what they showed in district play. ; And the Bulldogs did it with precision, cutting up the Bisons >wy IS THE NEW WINE6ARO j COLOfttftOrtTHE MOST POWERFUL TV • ANTENNA' I THE SECRET IS^> BUILT-IN ELECTRONIC AMPLIFIER TMAT MAGNIFIES TV 5OO% .:,..

Boldridge DALE TEETER moved to thin 12 points of Doug Meyer's all-time career mark of 1126 as he bagged 28 points in the winning effort. Teeter new need* 13 points to become the greatest Algona seortr in history. And it's just about a cinch ho'll got the record at Spencer Wednesday. But records are not what the Bulldogs will be thinking abou as they take the court, that's for sure. They are within two games of their second trip in three years to the state tourna ment. The Bisons never led and the game was tied twice, at 2-2 anc 4-4. Then Teeter sent home a short shot and Algona was of and running. The Bulldogs out scored the Bisons 18-5 afte that Teeter basket and were in control, 23-9 at the quarter. Buffalo Center never was clp ser than ten points. Teeter hi 20 of his 28 points in the firs half and everyone seemed t be throwing them in for th ocals. Algona shot 49% in the opening half, ending the game vith a 47.1% mark on 24 bulls eyes in 51 attempts. THE BISONS meanwhile hit only 18 of 56 for a 32.2% mark. They got five more shots than Algona. The rebounds were even at 29 each. Doug Black led all rebounders with 11 while Teeter got 10 and Dave Walker, who turned in another rugged performance, got seven. Buffalo Center closed to within 10 after three periods, 49-39 and then Algona went into its stall. They killed 1:06 to start the period without the Bisons ever touching the ball.

But the Trojans stormed back as Skaar hit a sweeping hook shot, Hazelhoff canned a free throw and LeRoy Larsen put in a drive shot. With 3:18 left, Skaar converted on a rebound and free throw for a 3-pointed to tie it at 45. An Elliott jump shot put the Trojans into their last lead of straight points, all on field goals for a 31-18 lead and finished the half on top, 31-21. The winners were in front 45 28 after three periods. Ledyard used reserves during much oJ the fourth quarter as the cause became hopeless and the entire squad of 12 men saw action. Top scorer for the winner; was Darrell Steen with 18 points the game. Merryman, Teeter and Espe found the range and Algona went into a 55-50 third period lead. The Bulldogs got three more quick buckets to open the fourth quarter and the breach was 61-50. Swea City never got closer than seven after that. This was a well-played game for both clubs, extremely exciting and featured some great shooting. Algona ended with, a 46.2% while Swea had 38.1% on 24 baskets in 63 shots. SERVICEMEN J Dan Merryman, Walker and Teeter combined for Algona's first 13 points of the final period and a 62-44 lead. Teeter now has 514 points for the season and is far and above any previous one-year record. Merryman ended with 13 points while Craig Espe had 10 This was probably one of Al gona's best balanced efforts of the season. Everyone pitched in en rebounds, all starters got a least seven points and there were some good defensive ef forts by all hands. THE BULLDOGS used a zone defense most of the game and it bottled up Buffalo Center completely. The Bisons had some good outside shots but they made very few. Algona kept the ball from the post most of the night. Buffalo Center closed with a l7-o record while Algona ad- r ances with a mark of .19-2. * * •/;• Coach Howie Stephenson was extremely pleased with the play of his team during the three dis rict tournament games. "We played well, very well," lie said after Friday night's game. "In lact, except for the Hampton game, we've played well ever since losing to Clear Lake." There was considerable plea sure in the Bulldog camp after Friday night's game when it was learned Mason City had edgec Clear Lake, 62-59. There jus weren't many who wanted to play Clear Lake again. Still, the next game is the most important and that is a Spencer Wednesday. Buffalo Center's 2-3 zone gave Algona very little trouble, and Stephenson chuckled about the zone a little after the game. "We had scouted Buttalo three times this year and they used the 2-3 zone every time. We ,;new they used it in most all of their conference games. But they used a man-for-man against both Ledyard and Emmetsburg h early district games." Stephenson figured the Buffa- o Center coach hoped to lead Algona into believing his team would use a man-for-man against Algona also. But Stephenson operated under the assumption the Bisons would zone Algona and they did but not too effectively. The Trojans controlled boards, bringing down 43 Laundry convenience v W I i Electrically! An automatic electric washer and an electric clothes dryer save you time, save you work.

Algona Municipal Utilities ALGONA 73 SWEA CITY 62 Algona high school shot a fantastic 69% in the second half to turn back Swea City's deter mined bid in the semifinals o the district tournament at Gar rigan Thursday night, 73-62. Trailing 30-29 at the half, the Bulldogs stormed back in the third quarter with 26 points and finished the second half with a 69.2% shooting average. The Bulldogs hit on 18 of 26 shots. Dale Teeter, again the top Bulldog pbihkproducer and re- bounder, hit on all five shots he fired in the final half. He ended with 24 points on eight of 16 from the field and eight of nine from the free throw line. Teeter also hauled down 16 rebounds, over half of Algona's 31 for the game. After a 10-10 stalemate mid way in the first quarter, Algona moved away to an 18-12 first quarter lead on baskets by Teeter, Tom Claude and Dan Mer ryman. BUT SWEA CITY got it tied at 21-21 as Tom Elliott drilled in five straight points and Om- murtd Skarr slapped in a re bound. A jumper by Mike Hazelhoff sent the Trojans to the locker room on top 30-29. Algona hit only 12 of 39 shots in the first half for a 23.8%. The third quarter was a tor rid one. Merryman put Algona back into the lead with just five seconds gone on a long jumi shot from the side. The coun was tied at 33 and 35 before Al the re- >ounds to 31 for Algona, Hazel- loff alone accounted for 19 rebounds and he finished with 13 points. But the scoring leader was Le Roy Larsen, a quick guard, who slammed in 19 points, far above his season's average of eight points per game. He got his eight field goals on 17 shots. Swea City also got top performances from Elliott and Skaar, who bagged 15 and 14 points respectively. On the Bulldog side of the ledger, Dan Merryman hit nine field goals and ended with 18 points while Craig Espe notched 16 points and played still another brilliant floor game. With his entire front line graduating, the return of Espe will be a high pot in the Bulldog plans next winter. BUFFALO CENTER 67 LEDYARD 46^ •,•)•.// W.K-U • i-fi"- Ledyard stayed with Buffalo lentsr for about 10 minutes Thursday night then the North Iowa Conference champions raced away with 14 straight points and finished up with a 67-46 victory over the co-champions of the State Line loop. Twice Ledyard came from five points back to go into the lead in the early stages but it couldn't match the Bison height or shooting accuracy. The Panthers were down 10-4 when Craig. Lloyd, Ron Johnson and Eugene Dontje sparked an eight-point rally that carried Ledyard into a 12-10 lead with 1:39 left of the first quarter. Buffalo Center promptly reeled off seven straight points to take a 17-12 lead and then the Panthers bounced back again but it was their final leap. Lloyd, Johnson and Dontje each contributed two points to an 18-17 lead with 6:04 left in the first half. After that, the Bisons outscored Ledyard 50-28 for the game. Buffalo Center hit 14 while Doug Black had 16 and Dennis Heiman notched 13. For Ledyard, Dontje meshed seven field goals for 14 points and Ron Johnson had a dozen. The Panthers finished one of their finest seasons with a portion of the State Line title and a fancy 16-6 season's mark. BUFFALO CENTER (67) Steen Heiman Orthel Black Wessels Cushman.
