Bulldogs Drop Finale, Finish 72-d Regular Season Mark Tuesday, Feb. 27, 1968 Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moines—5 Feb. 20, in the Palo Alto County Hospital following an illness of several months. Funeral services were held Thursday at 11:30 in St. Thomas Catholic Church with Monsignor Gerald Kelly of Ft. Dodge, a cousin, as celebrant. Algona's hustling Bulldogs took the long trail to Iowa Falls Friday night in search of the victory that would sew up second place in the North Central Conference standings - and instead got slapped with a 73-58 defeat that tumbled them into third place. And that's where they'll finish (and a darn good one, with a 9-5 record) — unless Clarion's hap- les Cowboys can up-end Iowa Falls tonight at Iowa Falls. There seems little chance for an upset. STANDINGS W L Clear Lake 13 0 Iowa Falls 9 4 ALGONA • 9 5 Webster City 8 6 Humboldt 7 7 Eagle Grove 6 7 Clarion 1 12 Hampton 1 13 Only two games remain in the loop. The Clarion-Iowa Falls fray tonight and a March 1 meeting of the undefeated (in loop play) Clear Lake Lions and Eagle Grove on the latter court. With Eagle Grove on the horizon, Clear Lake has not cinched a perfect loop season. The Eagles could get the job done. Clear Lake jolted Humboldt, 71-47, and Eagle Grove slipped past Clarion, 58-55, in other loop frays Friday. Marshalltown's vaunted club managed only a 5753 victory over Webster City the same night — so maybe the North Central Conference is stronger than some suspect. Coach Howie Stephenson blamed his club's defense and the ability of the taller Cadets to out- rebound his club for the defeat, which gave the locals a 12-6 regular season record and set up the big March 4 meeting in the first round of the District Tournament here with Garrigan. The Cadets used a very warm spell during the second stanza to put the game away. Algonaled early by a point or two, but Iowa Falls came on to take a 16-11 lead after eight minutes. Bill McCoy, the second best scorer in the loop, canned 15 points as the Cadets bombed the Bulldogs and took a 37-21 lead into the locker room. McCoy, who carried a 22-point average, and banged in 25 points as the Bulldogs came back to take a 7776 victory from the Cadets here Jan. 12, wound up with 28 big ones in this meeting. Mike Betts, number six man for the locals, led a rally during the third round that surely must have threateded to frighten the home club, but the big Cadets, who saw their lead chopped to 53-42 at the three-quarter mark, hung on and won with ease. Dale Pederson, top point producer for the Bulldogs this season with a 15-point average, led the scoring for the Bulldogs with 21 points, while Betts counted 15. Behind McCoy, Ingebritsongotl6 and Peglow 13 for the winners. The Cadets managed only two more fielders than the Bulldogs, but hit 76 percent of 27 free tosses, while the locals managed only 10 of 22 - a real chilly night from the line for Stephenson.

Steve Chrischilles led the scoring with 18 points, followed by Paul Christiansen with 12, Dave Lowman 11 and Tim Black nine.
