Coach Bob King's outfit travels to Enfmetsburg tonight (Tuesday) for an engagement'with the perennially rugged E-Hnwks, who usually take great pleasure-in Healing a defeat to the locals. The E-IIuwks are reported smaller than'they hnve been for several years, but have plenty of hotshots around to give the Bulldogs all they' want in the way of opposition. . The Clarion game was settled early, as Algona raced away to a 21-2 lead in the first eight minutes. The Cowboys employed a pressing defense that might have caused some trouble if the Bulldogs hadn't been fairly sharp for the game. Algona kept Clarion without a field goal until three minutes of the second quarter had gone by. and even that spark failed to chop into the lead held by the Bulldogs. It was 36-11 at half- lime, and Coach King had already done quite a bit of experimenting, due mostly to the fact that Larry Christensen had- picked up his fourth foul midway in the second stanza. Clarion was improved in the second' half, and began hitting from the field, although forced to shoot from pretty well out on the floor. Cowboy accuracy on field goal attempts the second half was a very respectable 33 percent, after hitting less than 20 percent the first half. Algona averaged 44 percent through the entire game, with practically all buckets coming from close range, with the exception of seven fielders by Nidas Dermand. The Bulldogs led, 48-20, at the three-quarter mark, and kept scoring, even with the insertion of every man suited 'fpt the game, through the fourth quarter, to win going away. Algona was much sharper during the first half than during the last 16 minutes, probably clue to the fact that the peak of condition is not at hand, Bulldog players who picked up'loose balls and bad passes all over the place the first half, didn't do It after the intermission, but on the bright side, Algona's passing and ball- handling was about as good as any seen for a long time in a season opener. Very few bad pdsses were made, maybe because of being over-cautious on fnst-bFeak situations, but the over-all picture was good, not enough to predict a conference or state championship, but very enlightening to the horde of Algona fans present at the game. Dermand's dead-eye shooting gave him scoring honors for the night, as he plugged eight field goals and two free throws for 18 points. Christensen got 14 points, even though he played only about half the game, and Doug Meyer fame through with 1., ' Algona's B-squad out-hustled Clarion, 44-34, in the opener, as Coach Tony Gu/ow.ski used everybody. The little Bulldogs led all the way, to win easily. Ron Zittritsch and Bob Slobo lot.k scoring honors with 12 points each. Zittritsch also handled most of the rebounding.
