2 Algona, Ledyard,St. Johns In District Cage Semi-Finals Ledyard, Algona High Tangle On Wednesday Friday's first round games found Ledyard and Algona advancing to the semi-finals with wins. Ledyard, after a slow start, belted Lincoln- Central of Gruver, 58-48, and Algona withstood a late challenge to dump Buffalo Center, 62-54, in a thriller that wasn't decided until the final two minutes. Neither Ledyard or Gruver could find the range during the early going. Ledyard managed to take a 5-4 lead after six minutes of play, then Gruver tied the count at 7-7 at the end of the first period. Ledyard's Panthers began rolling through the early stages of the second stanza, and with Steve Johnson and Jerry Payne, the only seniors on the squad, getting most of the points, took a 20-16 halftime edge. Billy Menke of the Panthers took over and guided Ledyard to victory during the second half. Menke, who had hit one point the first half, got hotter than a tin roof in August and canned 11 points as Ledyard bounced into a 39-27 lead at the three-quarter mark. Sherwin Brandt got three buckets during the surge for Ledyard. Jerry Payne joined Menke in the scoring column during the final stanza as Ledyard upped the margin to 56-40 with only two minutes of play remaining. Gruver then closed the gap before the final buzzer. Menke topped both teams in scoring with 18 points and was a valuable floor man for the winners. Brandt got 12 points and Jerry Payne and Johnson 11 each for Ledyard, while Bill Hunt got 16 and Jim Jessen 10 for the losers. Brandt, Menke and Jerry Payne handled most of the rebounding chores for Ledyard.

Late points by Tom Waller and Chuck Streit iced the game after the losers had cut the margin to three points with two minutes of play left. The Bulldogs, who took their fourth straight win and ran their record to 11-8 for the season, started off with a bang, using a fast break offense that resulted in plenty of mistakes and points. After four minutes of action, the locals led, 10-6, and the lead went to 19-13 at the end of the quarter. Waller and Bill Wetzel each got seven points and Streit five during the eight minutes. Buffalo Center, featuring the twisting lay-ups of Lonnie Gray who was almost scientific at it. and the scoring of big Dave Friesenborg, 6-7 center, roared into contention during the second round as the Bulldogs failed to find the range regularly. Algona did manage to hang on and held a 29-27 halftime lead. The Bison tied the count at 2929 at the start of the third period, but Algona caught fire again and with everyone getting into the scoring act raced to a 50-40 lead at the three-quarter mark. Friesenborg got the most thrilling bucket of the entire game midway in the period when he tipped in a field goal while jumping' with Lynn Kueck of the Bulldogs at the Buffalo Center free throw line. It was probably the first time anyone in the huge crowd had seen it done in a game. Buffalo Center wasn't out of it by any means. With Gray leading the way, the Bison chopped the Algona lead to 56-53 with slightly less than two minutes remaining. Waller was fouled, hit a free throw, then added a field goal seconds later to up the edge to six points and the losers couldn't get back in the game before the final buzzer. Friesenborg, who was held scoreless during the first period, wound up as the game's top scorer with 19 points. Right behind him were Gray of the Bison and Waller of the Bulldogs with 18 each. Wetzel canned 16 points and Streit 14 for the winners. Wetzel and Streit each got nine rebounds, Wood seven and Waller and Kueck six each for the Bulldogs. Interceptions by Wetzel and Streit also paved the way for many of the early points. The gassing-attack of the Bulldogs was sharp much of the time and set up several lay-ups.

Garrigan bumped Graettinger, 77-60, after the Johnnies had trounced Sentral, 92-50. Algona and tedyard, who won openers Friday night, will meet in the semi-finals at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) and Garrigan will, tangle with St. John'p in the other semifinal game at 8:15. Semi-final winners will tangle for the district championship and the right to move into sub-state play next Monday at 7:30 p.m. Actually, Garrigan and St. John's had to wait two days to try to get into the finals. The games played here Monday were originally slated Saturday night, but postponed due to the latest blizzard. Sentral pushed St. John's for one quarter, then could not match the Johnnies over the rest of the route. St. John's, with George Garry and high-scoring Don Smith each canning six points, held the upper hand, 20-12, at the end of the first period after taking a 1510 edge midway in the quarter. Gary Berkland flipped in six joints for the Satellites during the Irst eight minutes. Despite the seven point scoring of Berkland and Lynn Bierstedt of Sentral, the Johnnies moved to a big lead during the second round. Garry and Jdhn Nemmers each flipped in 10 points and Smith got five as St. John's raced ;o a 47-28 bulge. Smith really got hot during the ;hird stanza as he tossed in five auckets to lead the Johnnies to a 79-34 bulge at the three-quarter mark, and the winners hung on to win handily. Smith wound up with 21 points in three quarters to lead both teams in scoring. Garry and Nemmers each tossed in 20 for the winners, while Bierstedt got 15 and Berkland 14 for Sentral's young team. Coach Tony Winter doesn't have a senior on the squad.

Balance knocked Graettittger out of contention as the Bears waltzed to their thirteenth win in 19 starts. Mike Cink, Bob Goecke and Lyle Loebach each canned six points during the first period and the Bears held a 21-12 lead after eight minutes. Goecke and Cink each got another six points and Steve Sttidef came off the bench to flip in seven as the Bears upped their margin to 46-27 at halftime. Only the shooting of Larry Westfall, who tossed in 10 points in eight minutes for Graettinger kept the Pi« rates in the game at all. Graettinger proved during the third period that the game wasn't over by any means. The Bears, except for Cink and Goecke, nit a cool streak and the Pirates cut the margin to 14 points before falling behind, 58-42, at the three- quarter mark. Cink put the damper on any hopes Graettinger might have had by canning 13 points in the final period to put the game away. He finished with 29, high for 'both teams. Goecke got 20 points for the Bears and Westfall and Gary Park each got 15 and Laverne Schnell and Keith Norris 12 each for the Pirates. Box score: Garrigan (77) FG FT F Goecke 9 2-4 4 S.
