And for th« second straight time, accuracy at the free throw line proved a most valuable asset for the locals. Coach Bob King's hardworking crew travels to Clear Lake tomorrow (Friday) night for its first shot at defending the North Central C o n f e r e nee championship won last winter. Clarion comes to town next Tuesday, Dec. 6, for the second conference game of the young season. The Algona-Emmetsburg engagement is one the fans will long remember as one of Algona's choicest wins in years. It proved to be simply a case of a team coming through despite obvious overwhelming odds. The visitors romped to a couple of big leads -in the opening minutes, displaying a very workmanlike offense and putstand- ing shooting. especially by Thompson, Sampson and Johnson. Algona whittled away, with Doug Meyer and Loren Nelson carrying most of the scoring load, closed the gap to 17-12, setting the stage for the first varsity basketball appearance of Frank Kern. 17-14 Al Quarter Kern moved on to the court, and with three seconds remaining, pumped in a long one- hander to make it 17-14 at the quarter. Everyone in the stand:; felt the locals were lucky to be only three points clown at this point. The second stanza was almost a repeat of the first. Emmetsburg legged to good leads, then the Bulldogs' crept back into contention time after time. Kern was the offensive leader as he pumped in four more shots from the side, and when the halftime buzzer sounded, AJgona was only down, 36-32. Algona's defense came into its own in the final half, but Emmetsburg continued to bang in points. Near the three-quartet mark, the visitors had a comfortable 48-38 margin that apparently would be more than enough. At the buzzer the E- Hawks led. 52-44. Fourth Quarter Blitz There wasn't a fan in the place prepared for the fourth quarter blitz. Ted Finley, junior guard, was inserted for defensive purposes by King, and he really cutne through, along with the rest of the outfit. Meyer and Bob Slobe grabbed rebounds all over the plate and Finley, Harms and Nelson picked off passes like a group of infielders. Algona's superiority was shown by the fact that the Bulldogs SCORED 15 POINTS AND HELD EMMETSBURG TO EXACTLY ZERO DURING THE FIRST SEVEN MINUTES OF THE FINAL STANZA, a fete seldom, if ever accomplished by an Algona team against top-flight opposition. And the rally settled the issue, but good. Algona had seven stars, Em-, metsburg three in the game, and the ability of all the Bulldogs to carry their • share of the load turned the tide. Meyer got 14 points for top scoring honors for Algona. Kern accounted for 12, Nelson 11, and Finley • drpped in seven during the final period. The other three, Slobe, Kickbush and Harms, each totaled six for the night. Johnson, a very clever center, led the E-Hawks with 18 tallies. Thompson and Sampson chucked in 15 each. The Emmetsburg B-team came from behind to take a 32-31 win in the opener, despite Jim Cowan's 17 point blast for Algona.
