Iowa Falls edged Algona's Bulldogs, 54-51, in a rugged, tight, nervously played basketball game in the high school gym Friday night before a very noisy crowd. The game marked the end of the regular season for Coach Bob King's crew, gave them a season mark of 10-9, North Central Conference record of 7-7, good for fourth place, and prepared them for their meeting with St. John's of Bancroft in the sectional tournament at Titonka, Thursday night at 7 p.m. Cold shooting by both teams marred what might have been one of the best games of all time. The Cadets came through with a scoring burst in the last four minutes to snatch the win from the Bulldogs, who put themselves in the hole by missing half of 26 free tosses attempted during the fray. Iowa Falls hit 12 of 22 and got two more field goals than Algona. Algona didn't score for almost three minutes, and Iowa Falls didn't burn up the net either, although the Cadets held a 3-0 lead. Doug Meyer, Loren Nelson and Bob Slobe hit the points that cut the Iowa Falls margin to 11-9, and Rod Kickbush came up with a beautiful tip-in at the buzzer to tie the count, 11-11, at the end of the first period.

House Warming Pol Luck and Nelson and Slobe and Meyer. rebounding ot Slobe at times battled the entire big Cadet team for control of the ball off the defensive board. Each team missed numerous scoring opportunities during ' the first 16 minutes due to bobbles and bad passes. Algona got in the driver's seat early in the third round for the first time. The locals shot into a 32-29 lead and outplayed the visitors badly in the process They retained the lead, and were ahead, 40-37, at the three-quarter mark as Meyer, Slobe and Ron Zittritsch scored most of the points. Prosperity was short-lived. The Cadets shot away • and took a 41-40 lead in the first minute of the final period. King's team was stunned, but with Meyer, Kickbush and Zittritsch finding the range moved into a 45-41 lead. Sielaff and Anderson slipped through the Algona defense a couple of times each to giye the visitors a 49-48 lead that was upped to three points at the final buzzer. The loss was a bitter pill for the Bulldogs, who had shown marked improvement during past weeks, and discounted Slobe's finest game of the entire campaign. He was a titan on rebounds all night, taking some of the pressure off Meyer and Kickbush who have been carrying the rebounding load most of the year. Meyer hit his average exactly 19 points, to lead both team's in scoring. Zittritsch came up with ten tallies, Nelson eight, all in the first half, Kickbush seven and Slobe six. Anderson got 18, Siulaff 15 and Bremner ton for Iowa Falls. Algona out-hustled Iowa Falls throughout the night, but couldn't bang through the slate during the week at all sites.
