Late Surge Wins The Bulldogs came to life during the final round and won going away. Streit, Tom' Waller and Lynn Kueck furnished the scoring, while Streit and Wetzel snagged the rebounds that sunk the Lions. Streit wound up with 20 points and 12 rebounds, including seven in the last period. Wetzel, however, was the top performer all the way around. He hustled, as usual, canned 15 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and was a demon on defense. Waller, Wetzel and Streit also managed to pick off seven Clear Lake passes that slowed tha Lions' offense at times. Lakofa Girls Win Title In Tifonka Fray Lakota brought home one conference title from Titonka and clinched a tie for another Tuesday night of last week in State Line conference play, but it took two big efforts to repel Titonka.

Titonka led the opener at the end of the first and third periods before the new champions pulled it out. Elaine Folkerts had 25 points for Titonka. Robert Sunde, a Lakota reserve, had the clutch shot for the Eagles in the finale. His last second desperation shot gave the Eagles a 63-62 win and at least a tie for the title. Titonka jumped to a 22-14 first period lead before Lakota rallied. The Indians held a 33-32 halftime margin and then fell behind at the end of three. Titonka then rallied and got the lead with four seconds left on a field goal at 62-61 before Sunde hit his game winner. Charold and Clare Barrett led Lakota 'with 23 and 17 points respectively.
