(UDM • Algona's Bulldogs used a very stingy zoneVoffense to overcome a rough Clear Lake team, 51-37, and grab the undisputed championship of the North Central Conference before a large crowd that included a fine delegation from Algona at Clear Lake Friday night. The win was also the 15th in a row for Coach Howie Stephenson's team, which now has a 15-2 season record. The locals, who to date have an 8-2 home record and a 7-0 mark on the road, will finish the regular season with two frays on foreign courts. The Bulldogs will tangle with a usually-tough Clarion Cowboy brigade at Clarion tomorrow (Friday) night in the final loop game of the season, then hit the road to Emotsburg the following Friday for a return engagement with the E-Hawks. Clarion Tough The Cowboys gave the Bull dogs a real scare, when the teams met here Jan. (i before dropping a 66-60 decision. The shooting ol To-A'ns'end, Fletcher and Doty almost ushered the Cowboys to victory in that outing, but Algona pulled the top comeback ot. the year after trailing by 13 points with 12 minutes of play remaining to win. Clarion will yo all out to disappoint the newly- cro'vned league champions. Th<; Algona-Clear Lake fracas (it was just that) was no bed or roses. Tht- Bulldogs, operating with Denny Waller in the starting lineup in place of Bob Percival, who twisted a knee while ridini! a toboggan three nights earlier, had trouble on the boards for a while but eventually got things ironed out and won handily. Despite the scoring of Gary Peer, Chuck Streit, Len Funk and Denny Waller, Clear Lake, with Steve Moeller stiff-arming his way to six points, wound up with a 15-12 lead at the end o| the first period. Streit, Funk and Percival began sweeping the boards cleaq and Percival and Streit scoreo the points that pushed the Bulldogs ahead of tne home club in the second round. In fact, <~L-ar Lake failed to score 3 pHi i until more than six minute had gone bjr in the period ^.4 Algona was on top, 2,Q-lf ;_, y hylftime, the '' * -i upptd the margin to ?,7 it.:. , Vh> third quarfer was all even as each team managed to score only 10 points. \S -Point B.t»i3e At the midway poml i,.

Clear'Lake tried desperately to get the ball, committing fouls left and right. One player was removed from the game by the officials in the waning moments after a second flagrant foul. Post-game activities at the scorers table included a punch on the right cheek'for one of the of-" ficials by an irate Cl'car Lake fan, father of one of the basketball players, but the short scuffle was quickly stifled and tempers returned to normal.
