COMEBACK WINS FOR AHS Pederson Shot stateline Cage Tourney Downs Cadets Underway This Week Here Friday Tuesday, Jan. 16, 1968 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Maine*—9 A soft, left-hand (what else?) shot from the left side by Dandy Dale Pederson with 11 seconds of play remaining gave Algona's Bulldogs a 77-76 victory over Iowa Falls here Friday night in a fray that has to go into the records as one of the greatest of all times. The dictionary is full of adjectives that could be used to describe the important North Central Conference victory by the locals, who most of the way appeared to have little chance of downing the tall visitors. Pandemonium broke loose when the final buzzer sounded (just as the same Mr. Pederson blocked a last-ditch shot attempt by the invaders) - and Coach Howie Stephenson and his jubilant lads were surrounded by a throng of well-wishers. Another loop fray is next up for the Bulldogs, who are now 8-2 for the season and 5-2 in the conference (with a 3-game win skein going). They travel to Eagle Grove for their second meeting with the Eagles, a club that lost here, 71-62, in a spine-tingler Dec. 1. The Eagles bopped Clarion, 59-48, and feature one of the finest defensive clubs in the league. It should be another real peachy game. ' After a fine first quarter display, which saw the teams trading points most of the way, it became apparent to everyone in the place (except for Stephenson and his team) that the visiting Cadets had too much for the locals to put up with. All five Algona regulars got into the scoring act during the first eight minutes to offset a 10-point spurt by Bill McCoy of the visitors and after the score had been tied three times (and Iowa Falls had led six times and Algona three), a late bucket gave the locals a 19-18 edge at the buzzer. It was tied, then Iowa Falls led, 20-19, and Algona, 21-20, right after the start of the second round before the Cadets really got hot. They banged in eight straight points, Led by Pederson and Rovin' Rog Meyer, the Bulldogs staged a comeback threat during the third stanza, chopping the Iowa Falls lead to 40-35, 42-37,44-39 and 46-41 before the tallies got going again. It was Nellie Bar The Door when the visitors rolled into the fourth quarter with a 57-47 bulge. Now, the real fun began (for Algona) as the Bulldogs, for some reason, began picking themselves up off the floor. Meyer, Pederson, Rich Black, Tom Jones and Craig Taylor, who went most of the way without relief in this one, all "turned it on" and Iowa Falls began getting the treatment instead of the treat. The guards, Pederson and Black, led the surge, canning 10 points each during the eight minutes, but a sensational tip-in by Jones, a bucket by Taylor, who was going like mad under the boards, rebounds, steals and a blocked shot by Meyer were all jusi as important as points. The lead was narrowed to 63-59 with six minutes remaining, but Iowa Falls was on top, 67-61, nearly half-way through the round and the job still appeared too Stateline Conference tournament play began Monday night for both boys and girls teams, with the pairings and game locations as follows: MONDAY, JAN. 15 BOYS - Ledyard vs. Lincoln-Central at Lakota; Ringsted vs. Armstrong at Crystal Lake; Swea City vs. Burt at Swea City; Thompson vs. Sentral at Swea City.

It was 68-63 when Black tossed in a long bomb. Then he worked his way through the pack for ado or die lay-up and it was 68-67. Dave Dittmer then hit for the Cadets before Meyer calmly dropped in a pair of free tosses. Ingebritson then canned his only second half bucket to make it 7269. Pederson then hit with alongie and it was 72-71 with two minutes left. When Paul Peglow hit a goal and Greg Brass a free throw for the visitors, the Iowa Falls lead went to 75-71. Black cork-screwed his way to another lay-up and Pederson, with ice in his veins, hit two free throws to knot itat 75-75. Brass put the Cadets back on top, hitting the first of a 1-and-l free throw situation, and when Jones nabbed the rebound after he missed the second, Algona's winning points were set up. Black dribbled the ball into the front court, Pederson took a pass, dribbled near the base line on the left - and bingo, it was 77-76. Pederson added frosting to the bucket when he blocked the last Iowa Falls shot attempt at the buzzer.
