Rack Up 4th Loop Win By M Edge By Don Smith Jr. Algona's Bulldogs, looking mighty sharp most of the time, crushed Hurnboklt, 73-4f3. in the high school gym Tuesday night. The win gave the locals a (i-1 season mark and kept them right on the heels of the Webster Cily Lynx in the North Central Conference race with a 4-1 record. Coach Bob King's improving team travels to Storm Lake tomorrow (Friday) night for a non- conference tangle, the final fray 'intil the locals go to Swea City- Jan. 3. following the holidays. Loren Nelson hit two field goals in the first minute of action to send the Bulldogs off on the right foot against Humboldf. The pace slackened, and Humboldt tied the count at 6-6 before Algona went into a 10-6 lead it maintained the rest of'the way. First quarter scoring wa.s led by Nelson and Ron Zittritsch, who also got four points. Algona didn't move away from the Wildcats and 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 ir. the final three minutes of the half. Six times the Bulldogs brought the ball down the court, and six times Meyer pumped in field 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 w ith three field goals and Zittritsch and Nelson aided the cause with four points apiece. Meyer accounted for 21 points, Zittritsch canned 15, Nelson 14 and Rod Kickbush nine for the Bulldogs, while Blomker got 13 for the losers. Algona hit 46 percent of its shots from the field, connecting on 28 of 61 tries, and Humboldt hit on 16 of 64 for a 25 percent 1 mark. Humboldt's tall team rebounded well, al- though Kickbush was under the boards for Algona. Algona's B-team w a ! 1 o p o <1 Humboldt, 46-26, in the opemT after trailing at halftime, 19-17. The little Bulldogs won the game with a brilliant third perio 1 barrage that saw them otit^cuu 1 Humboldt, 23-3. Jim Cowan and Howie Funk led the scoring with 13 points each.

The Bulldogs were ahead all the way. They were on top. 18-8, at the quarter, 38-19 at the half and 55-31 at th.e three-quarter mark as Coach King sent 15 men into action. Hampton's only defensive weapon seemed to be a three-man wall thrown around Doug Meyer, who was limited to only seven points, but Nelson, Ron Zittritsch and the rest of the Bulldogs potted away at will and hit often enough to make the game a runaway. If Algona had been hot on its shots, the Bulldogs conceivably could have gone over the century mark in scoring during the fray. Zittritsch came in with 11 points, while Kickbush, Sloba and Kern got eight each. The 1 Algona B-team hustled its way to a 56-44 win in the opener as Dick Bahr and Tom Zittritsch each counted 14 points.
