It was Humboldl 51, Algona 47. The winners had a 48 perceni shooting average, compared with Algona's 35 percent. That told the story. In the first quarter, Bill Wetzel of Algona drew three fast personal fouls and Shackelford replaced him the balance of tne first half. .At the first quarter Algona trailed, 15- to 12, in a contest that was close all the way. It was Humboldt's second period bulge that told the story. Shooting with deadly accuracy from medium hoop distance, the Wildcats worked into a 32-20 halftime lead. Algona went into a full court press halfway through the second quarter in an effort to alter the game's complexion, but Humboldt was not to be denied, and using a fast break effectively at times, and careful, deliberate ball control at others, the home club gave their fans plenty to cheet about. If anything, the Bulldogs helo a slight edge during the second half. They narrowed the score at the third quarter to 40-32, and were making a fair bid to close the gap at the final whistle. Tom Waller was a five-foul casualty with two minutes left. Lynn Kueck, making his first basketball start for Algona, looked good. Lynn was delayed get"- - put -for basketball due to Is 51-47 Over Algona out using another senior veteran who has a chipped ankle bone but will be ready later.
