The Eagles, led by Cupp, began to hit the hoop regularly, and held the upper hand 14-8 at the end of the period. Cupp hit five straight fielders in the second round as the Eagles zoomed away to a 32-19 halftime bulge. Algona managed only two field goals in the half, and without an eight point spree by Jim Cowan during the second period, would have really been out of the battle. Eagles Grove Was ready to run Algona into the street when the third quarter began, but the event failed to take place. Algona chopped the margin to 3426 in the first two minutes of the period, lagged behind by ten points later, but came back to cut Eagle Grove's bulge to 43-42 at the three-quarter mark, due mostly to the scoring of Howie Funk and Duane Kueck, who hit 15 points between them. Most of the scoring load through the final period was carried by the same pair. With only two minutes gone in the last quarter, the count was tied 5050. when Kueck hit a pair of free throws. It was tied again at 52-52, but Funk came through with a jump shot to make it 5452, and Kueck's fielder made it 56-54 after the Eagles had again tied the score. The Eagles had the count tied at 56-56 with a minute of play remaining and had possession of the ball. They stalled until the final seconds when a last shot went astray and the teams went into the overtime. Funk gave Algona th£ lead again with a fielder that made it 58-56, but Eagle Grove tied it and with just seconds remaining, Strain hit the bucket to win the game. It was an erratic game, made so at times by tight defensive play of both teams. The phen- onmenal first-half shooting of the Eagle's Cupp was definitely overshadowed by Funk's last- half performance. Howie drilled home nine field goals in the last 16 minutes and finished as high man for both teams with 21 points. Almost ironically, two attempted free tosses by Funk missed the mark late in the game as he hit only three of nine attempts. The team hit "24 of 34. Kueck turned in his best game to date. Besides getting 13 points, he proved to be very valuable fhfc boardfe. Cewaft 12 points, seeing finished with only very limited action due to his sprained ankles. Cupp was tops for Eagle Grove with 18 points, and only two in the last half. Strain added 12, VanSickle and Collicott 11 each to the Eagle total. Algona's two high scorers for the season, Bob Slobe and Jerry Rupp, got only four points apiece . Algona's B-team fell 51-46, in the opener, despite some fine play and a 17-point performance by Robbie Hutchins, who played a whale of a game. Jerry Manser added 12 and Jerry Cowan ten points to the Algona total. Hansen got 22 points for the little Eagles.
