PoStS Meyer, Jones, Pederson *""*'''• •*""• 30 ' I9M Ms °°°' ""•' *»•'••"-'» Two Victories Over Titonka Sentral's basketball teams posted a pair of State Line Conference victories at Titonka Friday night. The girls opened the evening's play with a 66-56 verdict and the boys came up with their llth win in 13 outings, 83-54, in the finale. Ken Marlow, Sentral's record- breaking center, who had been defensed well by recent foes, teamed with Jim Geitzenauerand led a last-half surge that gave the boys' game to Sentral. The winners led at the quarter, 17-10, with the teams winding up in a 35-35 knot at halftime. A strong second half settled the issue as Sentral bombed its way to a 67-50 bulge at the three-quarter mark, then held Titonka to four last-period points to win handily. Marlow topped the scoring with 26 points, followed by Geitzenauer with 20, Bierle 13 and Mueller 11. Mueller was vitally important in the win as he gobbled up 14 rebounds and nine steals. Rod Isebrand got 14 points, Gary Ludwig 13, Harms 12 and Kiley 11 for the losers. LuVerne Posts Pair Of Wins, Cor.-Wesley LuVerne notched a pair of victories over Corwith-Wesley at Corwith Tuesday night, Jan. 23.

LuVerne held the upper hand in the girls' game at the quarter breaks, 17-9, 26-19 and 44-22, winning the struggle with a hot second half. Linda Wilhelm led the scoring with 31 points, followed by Connie Hefty with 16 and Michele Coyle with 15. Nancy Funnemark led the losers with 21. Corwith-Wesley slowed Lu Verne's boys with a ball control offense, but the winners held the upper hand all the way, with leads of 15-11, 25-15, and 37-22 at the quarter buzzers. DonBristowled the scoring with 20 points, while Doug Nelson added 16. Rich Johnson topped Corwith-Wesley with 11.

The victory lifted the locals to 10-2 for the season, 7-2 in the loop and into second in the standings behind Clear Lake all by themselves as the Lions remained unbeaten with a 75-64 victory over Iowa Falls the same night. Coach Howie Stephenson's club had everything going its way through the first four minutes of action - but then Steve Carlson, 6-7 Wildcat giant was sent into the fray, and he made a game of it. Early in the second stanza, the count was knotted at 18-18 and 20-20 (although the locals never trailed in this one), before Tom Jones put on a one-man rally to give Algona a slim 3430 halftime edge. Meyer led an assault early in the third period, canning a couple of real nifties, that upped Algona's lead to 39-32, but Humboldt closed the gap to 39-36 and to 42-41 before the Bulldogs hit six straight points, then hung on to a 50-45 edge going into the final stanza. The count remained close most of the way to the end. Algona held the upper hand, 58-51, with four minutes left, then after the visitors closed the margin to 5855, came back to put the win away. A couple of free throws by Denny Richter and a fielder by the vastly-improved Jones ran the count to 64-55 and Humboldt couldn't come back, despite 14 last-quarter points by Carlson. It was another team victory by Algona. Jones and Dale Pederson, who lofted in lefty shots at the right times, topped the scoring, but Meyer was the top man on the court in this one. He pitched in 17 points and nabbed 18 rebounds to take a lot of sting out of the Wildcat attack. Algona held the upper hand under the boards, 53-24, with Jones getting 13 rebounds and Taylor seven as the latter saw limited duty due to fouls. The board work probably saved the win as Algona was out-shot, percentage-wise, from the field, 4331. The victory was the fifth straight for the locals - and the last four, including the verdict over Humboldt, have been by a total of only 19 points.

Coach Champ Martin's team managed only one individual champion, Steve Claude, at 127, but scared the heck out of powerful Eagle Grove, which annexed the crown, and Humboldt, the teams expected to finish first and second. Steve Claude won three consecutive matches on the way to his title. Brother Rob Claude, 120, went to the finals and wound up second as he fell to Butch Laird of Humboldt. Don Camp, 145, also reached the finals before he lost his third decision of the entire campaign (he's won 17) to Showalter of Hampton.

Lance Rutledge, 133, and Larry Taylor, 138, also added points to the Algona total with third place finishes. The Bulldogs host Osage here in the final home dual meet of the season Feb. 2, then take to the road for the last dual at Clear Lake Feb. 7.
