Loren Nelson hit two field goals in the first minute of action to send the Bulldogs off on the right foot against Humboldt. The pace slackened, and Humboldt tied the count at 6-6 before Algona went into a 10-6 lead it maintained the r^st of'the way. First quarter scoring.-was led by Nelson' and Ron Zittritsch, who also got four points. Algona didn't move away from the Wildcats arid build up a big margin until late in the second stanza. Big Doug Meyer, who had trouble with his glasses early in the fray, put the locals out of reach with a terrific display in the final three minutes of the half.. Six times the Bulldogs brought the ball down the court, and six times Meyer pumped in f jeld "goals from a variety of positions and angles to. give the locals a 31-17 halftime bulge. Humboldt attempted to stay with the Bulldogs'after the intermission, but after chopping the margin a couple of times to ten points, dropped behind, 53-36, at the three-quarter mark as Algona's fast break clicked. Mopping-up exercises followed during the final round, as Bob Harms came through with three field goals and Zittritsch and Nelson aided the cause with four points .apiece.' > •*'Meyer accounted for 21''poSnts> Zittritsch , canned' 15,,-Nelson 14 and "Rod KJcKbush nine for the Bulldogs, while Blomker got 13 for the losers. Algona hit 48 percent of its shots from the field, connecting on 28 of 61 tries, and, Humboldt hit on 16 of 64 for a 25 percent mark.
