IN OVERTIME BA1TLE Swea City's basketball team handed Algona high school quint a surprise, Friday night of last week, in the Algona gym, by knocking off the favorites, 27 to 26, in an overtime game. The visitors were worthy successors to some of the Swca City teams of the past. Although they were not too rangy, and their past record included two defeats, they were never out of the ball game, and Algona's possible overcohfi- dence, coupled with some poor shooting, spelled . disaster to the Bulldogs. ' Algona Shooting Poor. Had Algona had belter results in the first half the locals would have had a sizeable -lead at half time. As It was, the Bulldogs had trouble finding the hoop, although not much trouble getting in for shots. They led at the half by a 17-14 tally. • Swca City bounced onto the floor in the second half and gave the Reel and Black all it could handle. The visitors took the lead and kept it most of the way. Butts of Algona had to leave the game on personals, taking away some advantage in height held by the home team. Tw'ceten of Swca City also went out on personals. At the end of the regular game excitement ran so'high that neither team heard the bell, and in the general confusion each team scored a basket after the bell. The officials, however, had not lost their heads, and the all-tied-up total at the finish'brough" on the overtime period. ; Overtime' Period. In the extra three minutes, with the score 25 all, Algona dropped in one free throw to go ahead by one pointi and missed'several other free trys.
