Fag/4 Algona Rolls To 76-43 Win Grove; Face 2 This Streit Bangs In 26 While Defense Clicks After a frustrating first quarter in which both Eagle Grove and • Algona high racked up 13 points, the Bulldogs went on to bury the Eagles, 76 to 43, on the Eagle Grove court last Friday night. The victory put- Algona in a fourth-place tie with Webster Cit in the conference. It proved to be a scoring hoi day for the Bulldogs. But befor anyone gets too optimistic i should be noted that the Eagle Grove team, with a revampec lineup from early-season, does no quite match up with the other conference cage teams this year. Only in Mosher, a fast little guard, did the Eagles seem to have any punch. Moffitt, a forward who scored 22 points in the first meeting between the teams, was held to a slim three points this session. Trail Only Once Algona moved out to an early first-quarter lead, but got a bit careless and the Eagles tied i up just before the quarter. For brief period in the second quarte the home club moved into a leac of one point, but the Bulldogs quickly overcame that and moved in front 33 to 23 at the half. It should be noted that during the first half the scoring was 12 field goals for Algona, and 11 for Eagle Grove. The difference was in free throws, Algona hitting '9 out of 11. In fact the winners missed only two free throws the entire game out of 16 trys. And Again; 2 Meets During Week KOSSUTH COUNTY PORTS 8-Algono (la.)

The such rapidity that Eagle Grove's best defense was a time out. The Bulldogs have potential, and showed it in flashes against Eagle Grove. It is possible that they have yet to hit their season's peak, and in the coming weekend they will need everything they have. It's Humboldt here Friday night, and Webster City there on Saturday. The games will determine whether or not the Bulldogs remain in the first division. Sig Wood is making progress, and Stephenson has several choices in his lineup now to offset whatever the opposition may throw his way. The Bulldogs showed bursts of real speed against Eagle Grove and other than a few miscues in passing had a smooth offense coupled with 50 percent shooting in the first half, and 60 percent in the second half from the field and five out of five from the free throw line.

Both teams wanted to win this third meeting of the season. Each had taken a home court victory earlier. The Johnnies were hot from the start. With Don Smith, who put on a great shooting exhibition for the losers, Garry and Rahe splitting the nets, the Bancroft team got off to an 8-2 lead in the first two minutes of action. Garrigan closed the gap a couple of times, but trailed 17-13 at the first quarter buzzer. The rebounding of Lampe gave the Bears fits most of the time. The lead changed hands six or eight times during the second period after Garrigan took a 22-20 edge. One point separated the earns most of the time, but a late mcket by Vaske, who took over he rebounding chores for St. T ohn's, gave the Bancroft entry 32-29 halftime lead. At the two minute mark in the lird period, the teams were tied, 6-36. Garrigan then took a 40-36 ead and appeared to be on the r ay to victory. The Johnnies oomed back, took a momentary 4-42 lead and held the upper and, 50-48, at the three-quarter mark. If possible, the going got rougher during the final quarter. The Bears crept into a 54-53 lead and were on top, 60-56, with four, minutes left in the game. Mike Cink then, stitched, the decision when he flipped in a trio of field goals. Steve Studer's three-point play, a field goal and free throw had given the Bears a three point lead earlier in the period. There were several stafs in the game. Smith's/shooting was tremendous and he led both teams in scoring with 26 points, He also rebounded well and set up several other baskets with his pin-point passing. Vaske and Lampe both rebounded very well for the losers and Vaske managed to flip in 12 big points in a reserve role before lie fouled out. Rahe got 10 points for St. John's. Cink was held to two lone free :ht'ows by .the Johnnies in the irst half, but the senior guard couldn't miss during the final half and topped the Bears in scoring With 17 points. Bob Goecke, who rebounded well at times and managed to steal five St. John's pass- s, got 16, Lyle Loebach, who car led the rebounding load much o he time during the first half, go 4 and John Fandel canned 12, in luding nine in the last. half. Stu er's nine point contribution Was is important as anv. He got them bout a point a minute in a re- erve role.
