fr-Algono (la.1 Upper Pea Motnd» Thursday," March 8> t9SS Algona Beats Humboldt In March To Sub - State Algona High's Bulldogs advanced to sub-state competition with a hard'fought 50^.45 win over a stubborn Humboldt team in the linal round of the district basketball tournlment at Humboldt Friday night. The win was the tenth straight for Coach Bob King's crew, and ran the season mark to 17-5, one of the finest for the local school in history. Accuracy at ihe free threw line ushered the Bulldogs past the Wildcats. Algona hit 16 of 20 gift shots, while the losers missed 12 of 21 tries, and this difference provided ihe edge at the final buzzer. The Bulldogs battled to a 17-15 lead at the end of the first period, and the capacity crowd sensed plenty of scoring to come in the .third meeting between two North Central Conference foes. Humboldt slipped past Algona, 61-60, at Humboldt, and the locals edged the Wildcats, 45-43 in the return engagement here. Second round action dampened Algona spirits. Bulldog scorers managed to count 'just FOUR POINTS during the eight minutes, and while Humboldt didn't ex- 'actly burn up the nets, the eight Wildcat Jallies gave the home team a 23-21 halftone lead. To Algona rooters, the edge was far more impressive than the' two points on the Scoreboard. Bulldog fans got to loosen up their vocal cords near the end of the third period. Meyer, .Dermand and Co. got in gear, and when center Keith Naeve of the Wildcats picked up his'fourth foul and was benched, Algona came up with four quick buckets to put the eventual winners ahead* 36-32, :a't the'three-quarter mark. < . The bulge was widened early in the final period, and with five minutes of play remaining, Coach King's ,fi.Ve led, 42-34. Algona Clung to the lead, afld was not seriously threatened, diespite numerous fouls near the end. Failure of" Wildcat free .throwers at the line kept the losers from moving' in for a possible kill. Doug Meyer topped the local scorers with 17 , points, while Nidas Dermand got, 14. Algona shooters weren't on .the mark as much as usual, but the Bulldogs hit well enough to come through. The all-around play of Dermand was tops during the night. Meyer turned in a good job, as did Don Cook and Jim Galbraith, and the rebounding of Larry Christensen during list-half action aided tremendously. Team effort paid off with the win over a rugged opponent.

SWARTZ ALGONA HARDWARE Algona Vs Li/Veme In Sub Sfafe Fans from this area will travel to Rolfe in droves Monday night, to see Algona's Bulldogs tangle with LuVerne's slick class B team in the sub-state opener at 7:30 p.m. Pairings announced by the Iowa High School Athletic Association Tuesday, pit St. Bernard's of Breda against Dowling of Des Moines at Ames, Monday at 7; Carroll vs. .Ames, Monday at Ames at 8:30 p.m.; and Bradgate vs. Rippey at Harcourt, Monday at 7:30 in games that will round out action in the three-site sub- state meet involving Algona and LuVerne. Should Breda beat Dowling Monday night, it is probable the Algona - LuVerne Winner will tangle with Breda at Rolfe Wednesday night, while if Dowling comes through, Ames, site of the finale Friday night, will probably be the meeting place for LuVerne or Algona, and Dowling. LuVerne swept into the sub- state with a 51-41 win over Bode at Rolfe in the finals of the district meet, the fourth time this season Bode lost to the winners. Coach Bryce Wickett's high- scoring machine has now racked- up 21 straight wins, and has a 26-2 season record, one of the best in the state. •• Algona, under the tutelage of Coach Bob King, has won its last ten games in a row and owns a 17-5 season mark. , One thing concerning the outcome of the LuVerne-Algona game is certain, Kossuth COUH- ty will have only one team left in tourney action, and one long winning streak or the other wiU come to an abrupt halt. Under the new state tournament setup which allows eight teams to compete for the title, instead of 18 as in the past, a team must win three games in sub-state competition to get to Des Moines.
