Gary Gade, who won a 4-2 decision in the opening match (95 Ib.) of the meet, is shown in the top picture as he tried to muscle his way out of the clutches of his opponent, while Steve Claude, who picked up a decision at 133 (and a 1967 state championship), is shown trying to tongue his way out of a problem with his opponent below. The locals travel to the Eagle Grove Invitational this Saturday. (Dave Riley Photos) Bulldogs Take 63-49 Win In Rugged Opener A reserve 6-foot senior forward, Craig Taylor, who arrived on the scene midway through the first period, exploded under the boards, grabbing all kinds of rebounds, and pitched in 14 points as he provided the impetus for a thrilling 63-49 victory by Algona's Bulldogs at Emmetsburg Tuesday night. To say the game was a typical opener is putting it mildly! It was loosely-played, rough and loaded with errors-but in the end the Bulldogs were able to gaine- nough poise to win going away. In fact, they outscored the home club, 17-2, in the last four minutes to sack the verdict.

The Bulldogs will be hosted by Swea City, a team that battled all the way before dropping a 65-49 decision at Bancroft St. John's last Tuesday night. Algona-Swea City games are practically always nip-and- tuck, although the locals have managed to hold the upper hand in recent years. That fact doesn't put tonight's win in the sack—and the Stephenson-men know it. Algona's first real anxious moments came in the second stanza. The locals managed only three field goals and a pair of free tosses, despite eight rebounds by Taylor, while Bob Sweeney, who canned four buckets, led a surge that chopped the half-time edge to 23-21, with Algona still on top. At this juncture, Pederson had eight points and Meyer five for the locals. Third period action really got rough - and a total of 16 fouls were assessed against participants from the two teams. A definite margin was established by Algona, however, as Meyer canned five more free tosses and Taylor and Rod Rogert each pitched in four points. Rounding the turn into the final quarter, Algona was on top, 43-33, and hardly anyone in the packed gym figured the home club had a chance. By the time Emmetsburg chopped the bulge to a mere five points, 46-41, with six minutes left, Algona brows were furrowed. And, a minute or so later when Or shorn steam-rollered three Bulldogs on the way to a lay- up that gave Emmetsburg its first lead at 47-46, it appeared the locals had fallen apart. It wasn't so, however. A time out was followed by a good finish, at least from an Algona viewpoint. Taylor, Pederson and Co. really went to work. First, Black hit a free throw to knot the count, then Taylor managed a pair and Pederson left-handed a fielder and it was 51-47. Jon Cody cut the Algona string for a moment with a field goal, but then Black and Pederson hit to make it 55-49, followed by a Meyer free throw and fielder and two Taylor field goals to wrap it up. Algona's stall offense was used efficiently as the final eight points went on the board. Taylor's rebounding efforts topped a good night under the boards by Tom Jones, who nabbed 11, three less than Craig. Meyer got six and Denny Richter five as Algona held a team advantage of 42-35, with Orsborn grabbing 13 for the losers. Erratic passing set up a load of steals, with Black getting four and Pederson three of Algona's 16, while Sweeny managed four, Orsborn and Cody three each for Emmetsburg. Richter blocked a pair of shots and Meyer, Jones and Pederson one each. Barr 0 0-0 0 21 21-36 16 Algona's Junior Varsity overcame cool first-half shooting with warm last-half scoring and a good defense to post an easy 61-38 victory in the curtain- raiser. Steve Chrischilles led the scoring with 18 points. The play of Christiansen, the Lowman twins and the rest of the Bull- pups was outstanding.
