6-AI§»na (la.) Uppftr Des Maine* tueiday, Jan. 23, 1958 Bears Edge Kuemper, 43-36, To Gain CYO Finale Sunday Fails cadets Grapplers Paste Iowa Garrigan's Golden Bears posted a cozy 43-36 victory over Carroll Kuemper here Sunday night in a hotly contested fray that opened theCYOTournament. The victory in the rugged defensive struggle was the tenth straight for the locals, who now have an 11-1 season mark. They have also won 15 straight on their home floor during the past two seasons. The win also gave the locals a shot at a second straight class AA title in the tourney, however it will not come easy as Coach Steve McCall's club has to meet a fine Sioux City Heelan tearr. there next Sunday in the finale. Heelan moved into the finals opposite Garrigan with an easy 80-44 victory over Ft. Dodge St. Edmond in another first round game at Sioux City Sunday evening. The Garrigan-Heelan game is slated for 7:30 p. m. It took the Bears 26 minutes to sack Sunday's victory over a club that refused to quit as two men, Jack Muller of the locals and Ron Friedman of the visitors did most of the scoring. A fine second half by Muller actually turned the tide - and the ability of the Bears to rebound with the visitors in the last 16 minutes after losing the board struggle in the first half was also very important. The Bears got off to a 7-2 edge in the first four minutes of the fray, then 'ell behind 8-7 as Friedman began hitting. Friedman canned eight straight points as Kuemper took a 12-9 lead at the quarter. And Muller hadn't scored. Dave McCarthy had three of the Bears' points. Muller found the range in the second round, but after four minutes, the locals still trailed, 1613. Miller and Jim Walker then leu a surge that gave the Bears a 19-17 edge at the intermission. At the break, Garrigan was in rebounds, 20-12 - and Mulier had half the total. The teams remained chilly, ••vith grasping defensive hands mostly responsible, through the second half - with the exception of Muller and Friedman. Muller and Steve Wingert each got four points as Garrigan outscored Kuemper, 11-9, during the third stanza and carried a 30-26 edge into the final eight minutes. McCarthy and Muller did all the Garrigan scoring to put the win out of range of the visitors during the last quarter. It was apparent the challenge by Kuemper had been put down with four minutes remaining and the Bears on top, 36-28. The board work of Muller, John \Vinkel and McCarthy allowed the locals to get 15 rebounds, same as Kuemper, during the final half, so the final deficit was 3527. Jim Walker and Jim Fickbohm led the theft corps that had a 6-3 edge at the final buzzer. Muller wound up as the game's tup scorer with 21 big points, while Friedman was the only other player in the contest in double figures with 17. Friedman topped all rebounders with 12, while Muller captured 10.

He's the guy who took charge and led the Bulldogs to their second straight come — from — behind North Central Conference victory — a thrilling 64-60 verdict over a rugged Eagle Grove club there Friday night. Jones scored seven more points than he had ever counted in a game in his career, 22, and nabbed a batch of rebounds as he proved to be the real difference in the two clubs. The victory was the fourth straight for Coach Howie Stephenson's hustlers, upped the season mark to 9-2 and loop record to 6-2, good for second place in the standings.

Besides the regulars, reserves Rog Barr, Steve Voyles, Rod Rogert and Dave Lowman all played a big part in the victory. Algona's Junior Varsity was not challenged until the final period and came through with a 57-51 victory in the curtain-raiser ina foul-infested fray. A total of 51 fouls were whistled (and there were a few good ones left for the varsity contest), making an even 100 in two meetings of the Algona- Eagle Grove JV's this year. Dean Lowman led Coach Keith Christie's club to its eighth win in 10 outings with 19 points, while Steve Chrischilles got 10, Dale Briggs nine, Greg Allen seven, Tim Black five, Meyer four, Max Laird two and Mueller one. Algona High School's wrestlers dropped only two matches on the way to an easier than expected 30-12 victory over Iowa Falls in a North Central Conference meet there Saturday night. The victory ran the dual meet record for the season to 6-3 and set up a frip to the Conference Tournament next Saturday at Clear Lake. Humboldt and Eagle Grove are favored to fight it out for the crown. The Bulldogs got only one fall in the Iowa Falls get-together, that by Phil Bode at 154. Denny Peter sen, Steve Claude and Bruce Bennett posted easy decisions, while Gary Gade, Lance Rutledge, Don Camp and Duane Hunt also came through on points and Russ Bird and Tom Laing battled to draws. Results: 95 - Gary Gade (A) decisioned Terry Smith, 3-2. 103-Russ Bird (A) and Steve Hamilton drew, 0-0. 112-Denny Petersen (A) de- cisioned Lynn Lettow, 8-2. 120-Tom Laing (A) and Dan Stabler drew, 0-0. 127-Steve Claude (A) de- cisioned Glen Bahr, 11-0. 133-Lance Rutledge (A) de- cisioned Wyatt Pickering, 3-2. 138- Larry Taylor (A) lost to Gary Maudlin, 8-4. 145-Don Camp (A)decisioned Marvin Raisch, 4-0. 154- Phil Bode (A) threw Nelson, 5:16. 165-Duane Hunt (A) de- cisioned Pete Allen, 4-3. 180-Bruce Bennett (A) de- cisioned Eldon Winters, 8-0.

Falls were registered by Pat Elbert, Ed Bennett, Darrell Miller and Steve Willrett, while Les and Jerry Simpson, Steve Fitzpatrick, Ferris Fett and Mike Putney got decisions. Paul Seller Enters Army Paul Seller, 21-year-old offensive tackle for the New York Jets football team, has entered the Army, the American Football League club said Friday. Seller, who played at Garrigan of Algona and Notre Dame, was the Jets' No. 1 draft choice last year. He missed half of the team's games this season because of a knee injury. ALGONA Iowa Falls Humboldt Webster City Eagle Grove Hampton Clarion Woden-Crystal Lake And Thompson Take State Line Crowns Saturday To say the battle was uphill at Eagle Grove is putting it mildly. Except for the first period, when both clubs were cold, Algona was never in it until the teams rounded the turn into the final stretch. A field goal and free toss by Rog Meyer gave Algona a 3-0 edge in the first two minutes. The lead went to 4-1 before Mark Hogenson of the Eagles led a rally that put the home club on top 11-9 at the quarter. The Eagles didn't go to the locker room at the intermission, a move that had brought them some luck earlier this season. The plan didn't work Friday, although it appeared it would. Each of the Bulldogs got into the scoring column and by the time the buzzer sounded ending the third period, Eagle Grove's lead dwindled to 43-37. Victory, however, still seemed out of reach of the locals. The Bulldogs, who had been chilly from the field most of the time, suddenly warmed to the task, came on like mad, and when Jones hit a fielder and Dale Pederson another, found themselves holding a 47-44 edge with six minutes left. Smith of the Eagles then hit a frae throw, but Craig Taylor countered with a bucket and it was 49-45. Another Smith free toss was followed by a Pederson basket and a pair of free tosses by Meyer. Now Algona was on top, 53-46, and apparently had the game in the sack. Not true! What happened in the next few moments hushed the Algona victory chant. Hogenson hit three field goals and Smith four free tosses and Eagle Grove was suddenly back in front 60-59. Only 33 seconds remained. Jones, who never had a better aiglit, snared a rebound and stuck it in, was fouled and also canned Die f rae throw to give his club a 62-60 edge and Meyer managed a steal, fired a pass to Rich Black for a lay-up and the count went to 64-60 at the Haul buzzer. Both State Line Conference Basketball Tournament titles escaped Kossuth county teams as Thompson and Woden-Crystal Lake won championship games in the boys' and girls' divisions, respectively, Saturday night at Lincoln-Central, Gruver. As a result, both defending champions, Ledyard's boys and Lakota's girls, lost and failed to make it two in a row. Woden-Crystal Lake posted an 80-70 verdict over the Lakota girls in the curtain-raiser and Thompson, a team that has improved rapidly during recent weeks, edged Ledyard, 73-65, in the finale. Woden-Crystal Lake got to the finals with earlier wins over Ringsted, 79-40; Armstrong, 4827; and Sentral, 89-88 in overtime ; while Lakota advanced with a 67-38 victory over Ledyard; a 59-4G verdict over Burt; and a 64-47 decision over Lincoln- Central. Thompson gained the finale on wins over Sentral, 83-63; Titonka, 92-53; and Lakota, 7255; while Ledyard advanced on an 88-58 victory over Lincoln- Central; a 90-48 victory over Woden-Crystal Lake; and a 6561 win over Ringsted. The meet was played at six sites, Monday through Saturday, and attracted large crowds. Both State Line Conference Basketball Tournament defending champions, the Ledyard boys and Lakota girls, advanced to the finals of the meet with victories Thursday and Friday nights. W-CL, SENTRAL FRAY THRILLER Woden-Crystal Lake, fifth rated in the state, had quite a time getting past 16th rated Sentral in Thursday's other game. It took a fourth quarter rally to get the job done — plus a one- point edge in the overtime. Sentral led at the quarter, 22-16, and the score was knotted at half time, 43-43, with the Kossuth club back on top, 65-61, at the three-quarter mark. Shirley Steffen, who led the winners with 35 points, then counted the points in the fourth stanza that allowed an 82-82 tie at the end of regulation time. Cindy Lockwood, Sentral, then valiantly attempted to get the win for her club in the overtime. Kirschbaum counted 30 points and Hanna 24 for the winners, while Betty Wehrspan led both teams with 40 points and Lockwood got 27 and Voigt 21 for Sentral. Box score: SENTRAL (88) Lockwood Voigt Wehrspan Ditsworth Blanchard Geitzenauer Johnson LEDYARD BOYS BOP W-CL 90-48 Ledyard reserves got lots of chance to play as the high- powered Panthers easily raced past Woden-Crystal Lake Wednesday night. Ledyard raced to a 41-8 lead in the first period and held 63-22 and 79-38 leads at the other quarter stops as the reserves took over through much FG 11 7 17 0 0 0 0 35 FT 5 7 6 0 0 0 0 18 F 3 3 1 2 6 2 2 19 of the last three periods. George Walker, Doug Kollasch and Dale Farrow counted 12 points each and Wayne Logemann and Allen Dontje counted 10 each for the winners, while Jeff Peck counted 11 for the losers. THOMPSON 92, TITONKA 53 High-flying Thompson had little trouble dumping Titonka, 92-53, Thursday night as John Harlson dumped in 24 points, Doug Peterson 23 and Lynn Anderson 19. High scorer for Titonka was Rod Isebrand with 21, while John Kiley got 15. Thompson led 23-11, 50-27 and 71-42 at the quarter buzzers. LAKOTA 69, SWEA CITY 65 Lakota and Swea City were knotted, 18-18, at the end of the first period and Swea City held the upper hand, 34-32, at halftime, but Lakota came back to post a 69-65 verdict Thursday night. Terry Krominga counted 27 points for Lakota and Bruce Hertzke added 17. All five Swea City starters were in double figures, with Jeff Newlin leading the way with 15, while Thoreson notched 14, R. Newlin and Johnson 12 each and Berg 11. Grapplers Lose 20-18 In Meet At Eagle Grove Algona High School's wrestling team sustained its third defeat in eight dual meets at Eagle Grove last Wednesday night, a rugged 30-18 North Central Conference defeat. The Junior Varsity came through in the curtain-raiser with a 24-20 victory. Six local varsity grapplers registered decisions for Coach Champ Martin. They were Denny Petersen, 112, Steve Claude, 127, Lance Rutledge, 133, Don Camp, 145, Phil Bode, 154, and Steve Fitzpatrick, heavyweight. Junior Varsity points were registered by Ed Bennett, Ferris Fett and Les Simpson with falls, and Tom Laing, Steve Willrett and Al Aldrich with decisions. »5 — Mike V.cGonegle iEG) dec.
