Bulldog Thefts Set Up 88-64 Win Over Iowa Falls Friday Algona's Bulldogs used thievery-extensively on the way to an easy 88-64 victory over Iowa Falls here in a North Central Conference fray that marked the end of the regular season and allowed the locals to finish two games ahead of the pack in the title chase.

Craig Espe, Algona's other senior guard, finished third in the race with 268 points in the league. Dale Teeter, Algona, led the race a year ago. It took the locals 2 1/2 minutes to get going against the Cadets, but from then on, except for a couple of brief flurries, Coach Howie Stephenson's club was in command and won number 16 in 18 starts without too much pressure. The defense must be credited with the victory, because Algona's shooting was off. By halftime, the losers were hitting 50 percent from the field to 24 percent for the locals, who led 47-28. Gregg Betts, who turned in another good job, and Espe got Algona rolling after a slow start. They flipped in 16 of 18 first quarter points, Betts got most of the rebounds and Espe came up with three steals to allow the locals to lead by three after eight minutes. Rog Meyer, Bill Boldridge and Claude joined Betts and Espe in the fun during the second stanza. No less than seven times the Bulldogs came up with thefts that resulted in baskets, and with Boldridge, Betts, Meyer and Bob Farnham working hard under the boards, the visitors had little chance to get anything done. The big surge came right after the start of the quarter. Iowa Falls had cut the lead to 20-17 when an Algona explosion resulted in 21 straight points audit was 41-17 with three minutes left in the half. By halftlme, Algona held the upper hand, 47-28.
