14-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moinet Tuesday, Jan. 9, 1968 Bulldog Grapplers Down Hampton By 35-9 Tally Algona High School's wrestling team lost the first three matches, in a dual meet against Hampton here last Saturday night, but came on fast after that to win handily, 35 to 9. Their season record is now four wins and two losses. It was also Mother's Night, and the victory was particularly fitting. The Junior Varsity grapplers lost to Hampton, in a close match, 23 to 19. Gary Gade gave ToddSheppard a good match in the opening 95 Ib. contest, and Russ Bird lost a close decision in the 103 Ib. class, and Denny Peterson lost the 112 Ib. contest by decision. With Hampton leading, 9-0, it was all Algona after that. Rob Claude turned in a 4-0 win in the 120 Ib. class, and brother Steve Claude followed in the 127 Ib. contest with a pin over his opponent. Lance Rutledge decisioned his foe in the 133 Ib. class, and the second fall of the night came when Larry Taylor took the 138 Ib. contest. Don Camo decisioned his man in the 145 Ib. class for a 2-0 victory. Sophomore Duane Hunt added three points with a decision in one of the most exciting matches of the night, and Les Simpson, freshman, shut out the Hampton opponent, 4-0, in the 165 Ib. class, with a takedown and reversal. Bruce Bennett contributed the third fall of the night with efficiency. Al Aldrich, a junior varsity heavyweight, was brought up for this contest as Steve Fitzpatrick was out for this meet with a bad face cut that required stitches, received in practice last week. Aldrich won by a fall.

Bulldogs Snare 63-56 Loop Victory, Clarion Outstanding jobs by Rog Meyer and Tom Jones, who led the club in scoring and rebounding, led the Algona Bulldogs to a cozy 63-56 North Central Conference victory at Clarion Friday night. The victory, second straight by the locals, upped their season mark to 7-2 and loop record to 4-2 and kept hopes for a shot at the conference crown alive. There's another real big one on tap this Friday night when the Iowa Falls Cadets, a real rugged club that up to this weekend NORTH CENTRAL STANDINGS Clear Lake Iowa Falls ALGONA Humboldt Webster City Eagle Grove Hampton Clarion W 6 4 4 4 4 1 1 0 L 0 1 2 2 3 4 6 6 ranked second to Clear Lake in the standings, come to town. For Coach Howie Stephenson's club, if s another must game. ^The offlCialsTcept the~game at Clarion closer than it should have been — and as a result, it turned out to be the kind of game you can lose, even if your club is noticeably better. IF Algona's usually hot- shooting guards, Rich Black and Dale Pedersen, had been on the mark, the Bulldog lead could easily have been 30-35 points at halftime, instead of five. Rich and Pete kept bombing, but the ball refused to go through the net, another factor that kept the teams close. Despire this coolness, the locals managed to get away to a 9-2 lead in the first four minutes as Jones, Meyer and Craig Taylor did all of the scoring. Clarion managed its first field goal of the night with 1:20 left in the quarter, but with Jones accounting for seven points, Meyer five and Taylor four, Algona led, 16-6, at the buzzer. And the lead was well- earned. Led by Scott Sims (and whistles at the wrong times for Algona), Clarion got back into the midst of the struggle late in the half. The Bulldogs were on top, 25-10, with four minutes remaining before the intermission when Sims caught fire. He poked in 11 points, Clarion scored 10 straight during one stretch -and Algona's lead narrowed to 30-25 at the half. The see-saw struggle continued after the clubs soaked up some rest and Clarion trailed by only three points five times during the third round. Meanwhile, Algona, with Meyer getting seven points, held on and managed five and six-point leads in between Clarion's little spurts. It was 46-40 as the teams rounded the bend into the final eight minutes of action. Meyer, Jones and Rod Rogert were the take-charge guys who hit the buckets, Rogert, Pederson and Meyer handled the rebounding and Taylor the theft department as Algona held leads ranging from five to ten points to the final buzzer. A three-point play by Jones with about two minutes gone in the stanza probably shot Clarion out of the saddle. When Tom came up with his points, the Algona lead was only 50-44. His three made it 53-44 and practically assured a Bulldog victory. Meyer wound up with 23 points, second best output during his career, while Jones, who fouled out late in the fray, canned 15, tying his best previous one-game total. Sims topped Clarion as he matched Meyer's output. Under the boards, Meyer and Jones each captured nine rebounds in tough going, while Taylor came up with seven. Chris Sheldon grabbed nine and Sims seven for the losers as the Bulldogs held a 36-28 edge in that Sentral Wins 2 From Burt; Boys Tie For Top In State Line Conference basketball action, the Sentral girls gained a 7149 victory over Burt with the HURT (Boys) (58) FG FT PF TP Batt 6 1 2 13 Mawdsley 2105 Rubnke 7 2 0 16 Lavrenz 10 1 1 21 Lichter 1143 TOTAL 26 6 7 58 SENTRAL (86) FG FT PF TP Kerber 15 2 2 32 Nerem 1012 Geitzenauer 5 0 2 10 Volgt 0010 Laabs 0010 Gerbart 2014 Mueller 11 3 2 25 Kennedy 1002 Blerle 5 1 2 11 TOTAL 40 6 12 86 SENTRAL 23 37 20 6 86 Sentral boys netting an 8658 victory over Burt.
