Twin Rivers & Woden Victors In Sectional Girls Tourneys Lakofa Faces Twin Rivers In First District Twin Rivers and Woden-Crystn Lake won their sectional cage tourneys last week, and along with the runners-up, Boone Valley (Renwick) and Lakota, will enter the state girls district tournaments this week. They will be the four teams representing this immediate area of the state. And right off the bat, two of (he most immediate teams, Twin Itivcrs and Lakoln, meet each other on the Clear Lake court, Wednesday night, at 7 p.m. Woden-C r y s t a 1 Lake draws Boone Valley in the first round, tonight at 7 p.m. (Tuesday), at Clear Lake. The sectional victors from the tourney at LuVerne won their final round game against Boone Valley of Renwick, Friday, 56 to 53, coming from behind in the second half to overcome a 30-24 deficit. At the end of the third quarter Twin Rivers had edged into a 43-42 lead. This was short lived, Boone Valley again moving ahead, but then Twin Rivers' McGee and Selvig led their team into a last quarter spurt that won them a district tourney berth, aided by a last minute stall. Coach Derald Swisher's .sextette was the surprise team of the tourney, getting away to a 52-44 win over LuVerne in the first round game. This contest was considered the outcome of the winner, but Boone Valley disputed the claims all the way. In the consolation contest, Kanawha downed Corwith-Wesley, 7262. Corwith field a balanced attack in Mary Will with 26, Stephanie Bartik with 19, ond Carla Ezarski with 17, but that wasn't quite enough to get the job done. WODEN-CRYSTAL LAKE DOWNS LAKOTA, 52-30 Lakota, playing without the service of high scoring forward Marilyn Rippentrop, lost to the team just before tourney time as result of an appendectomy, bowed to Woden-Crystal Lake in the finals of the girls sectional at Thompson, last Friday night. Sandra Buffington and Cheryl Limberg led the victors, while Lakota's Pat Tjaden, Diana Becker and Carmen Cook were in double figures in scoring. Becker had been moved into the forward court Jrom guard to replace Rippentrop. 6-Algona (Id.)

Thirty-six of those years were spent in Dyers ville and the other years were in Manchester, Strawberry Point, New Hampton, Charles City and The loop standings, which showed Clarion sporting a perfect 12-0 record, didn't phase Algona at all Friday night as the Bulldogs pulled THE UPSET of the year in conference action and up-ended the Cowboys, 39-35, before a jammed house in the high school gym. Coach Howie Stephenson's charges got the job done despite whistle- tooting that made it seem the game was being played out of town. One game remains on the Bulldog slate — a most important meeting with Iowa Falls Cadets there this Friday night. The Bulldogs, with a win over Iowa Falls, could get at least a slice of third place in the loop. However, the locals will have to do better than they did Jan. 12 when the Cadets chalked up a 67-58 win over the Bulldogs here. Talk about team effort and you've got the story of Algona's win over Clarion. Every one of the seven Bulldogs who saw action gave a good account of himself on Jie court. From the start it was apparent lie game would not be a high scoring affair — but there remained a feeling throughout that one team or the other might blast the game wide open with a hot streak. !t never happened. A pair of free throws gave Algona a 2-0 lead after two minutes >f play, but Clarion canned enough juckets and free throws (it seemed like Doty was at the line all the time) to take 5-3 and 7-3 leads be; fore the Bulldogs came back tor lead 10-9 at the end of the quar- :er. Bill Wetzel's four points led the Algona spurt. Buckets by Wetzel and Tom Waler shot Algona's lead to 16-12 early in the second stanza, but Bowman canned a pair of two- pointers and Wilson one to go with Yee throws by Doty and Basham as Clarion took a 21-20 lead at the half. Algona was in foul trouble at the 16-minute mark. Tom Waller had four and big Sig Wood three and it appeared Clarion would waste little time taking advantage of the problem in the third period. Again — it never happened. Waller left the game with his fifth personal early in the third period after doing a good job on Doty, and Dick Pratt, who had seen limited duty during the second period, took his place. And Dick was ready. He, Chuck Streit and Lynn Kueck, aided tremendously by the rebounding of Wetzul, pushed Algona into a 30-26 lead at the six minute mark — and the score didn't change until the fourth quarter. Streit, Kueck and Pratt got all the points again in the fourth period, and while they hit only nine — it tied Clarion's output and gave Algona the win. Aigona led 34-31 after two minutes, 34-33 after four minutes and 37-33 with two minutes of action remaining. It was 37-35 when the final buzzer sounded, but Kueck made it 39-35 with two free throws after the wild finish. Wood, Wetzel, Streit, Waller, Kueck, Pratt and M. Shackelford — they played and were the stars for Algona. Streit wound up as the Bulldogs' leading scorer with 11 points, followed by Wetzel and Kueck with eight each. Waller with six, Pratt with four and Wood 14 11-19 14 Clarion (35) FG FT F Basham 0 2-3 '2 Dougherty 3 1-3 2 .2 6-9 1 .10-1 4 5 1 Doty Wilson ..

The teams were tied at the half, 2323, and at the three-quarter mark, 29-29, before the torrid finish. Gary Naylor finished with 18 points and Steve Hardy and Bruce Sundet 12 each for the little Bulldogs. Rick Slobe grabbed quite a few rebounds for the locals.

The win gave Coach Leon Vann's team a 12-5 season record. Garrigan will wind up its regular season schedule this Friday night at Ft. Dodge. The Bears will tangle with St. Edmond for the third time this season. So far, each team has won one game and the finale promises to be a lulu. Remsen, according to Coach Vann, missed several good shots in the first period against the Bears or the game might hfive been close all the way. The Bears, on top 18-17 at the end of the period, weren't threatened after that. With Mike Cink, Bob Goecke and Lyle Loebach tossing in clutch baskets, and John Fandel leading 3 fine defense, the Bears pulled away during the second period. At half time the locals held the upper hand, 40-25. Remsen outscored the Bears, 1817, during the third period and cut the margin to 57-43 with eight minutes of action left. Coach Vann cleared the Garrigan bench during the final round and the Bears went on to win by 21 points. Mike Cink flipped in 25 points to lead the Bears in scoring. Goecke wound up with 15 and Loebach added 14 to the winning total. Ahmann of Remsen led both teams in scoring as he dumped in 27. Loebach and Goecke each picked off 17 rebounds and Bob Schneider got eight. The Bears canned 34 of 71 field goal attempts, hitting a nifty 48 percent during the night. Remsen hit 20 of 55 shots.
