The lop-sided victory gave Algona its first outright, championship in years, and put the Bulldogs on the top rung for the first time since the 1948 - 49 season, when they shared the prize with Webster City. Coach Bob King's crew will meet the winner of the Britt-Wesl Bend game, being played tonight (Thursday),- in the finals of the sectional tournament Saturday night. A win by the Bulldogs would move them into district competition'. They wind up the regular sea• son next Friday, Feb. 18, with their final conference game at Iowa Falls against the secctnd place Cadets, who were knocked out of the race by Clear Lake, 52-49, at Clear Lake Friday night. Cook Sets Pace The Bulldogs were nervous at the start of the Hampton game, undoubtedly due to the fact they knew a win would give them the crown. Several easy shots were missed a mile during early action. Don Cook, top defensive man who seems to score at the right time, and Jim Galbraith, pulled the locals out of their doldrums with a series of bullseyes, and Algona was off to the races. Cook really got things going with three straight left-handed pokes midway in the period, and Hampton wasn't a threat from that point on. The Bulldogs had a 21-12 lead after eight minutes, and Cook and Galbraith each had 8 points. The second quarter was all Algona as everyone got into the act. All five of the regulars. Cook, Galbraith, Larry Christensen, Doug Meyer and Nidas Dermand, hammered away, and left the floor with a huge, 45-24, halftime bulge. And the margin was KOSSUTtt COUNTY built despite the fact 60 percent of the fouls were on Algona. It was more of the same in the third period, as Algona continued to show complete supremacy over the visitors, and when firing started in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs held a 61-32 lead. Battle of Substitutes Substitutes flooded the floor from both benches early in ,the fourth period, and the final eight minutes of action probably took more time, to play than any in history. Hampton sent in men wearing a variety of colors, and Coach Bob King retaliated by suiting up Warren' Branson, tiny B-squadder. The 65 pound Branson got into the scoring column, as did nine other Bulldogs. In all, Hampton used 15 men, Algona 12, and 29 fouls were called on Algona, 25 on Hampton. Thirteen of the Hampton fouls were called in the final period, to cut down the big lead Algona had taken in that department of the ame. Galbraith topped the scoring with 16 points, followed by Meyer 5, Cook 14, ClmslGiiaUi 9, and Dermand 8; The all-around defensive play, rebounding and ball- landling was good, and for the third straight game, Algona outscored its opponent in every quarter played. ,The Algona B-team was sur- arised, 46-43, in the opener, as Jim Cowan got 11 points and Ted Tinley 10 for the locals.
