The locals zoomed to a 25-17 first quarter lead, built the bulge to 41-29 at halftime and 5£-41 at the three-quarter mark to win easily. The rebounding and scoring the first half of Rod Kickbush. Bob Slobe and Doug Meyer actually put the game on ice. This trio was aided no end by the strict defensive play of Bob Harms, whose floor game was tops, and Loren Nelson, who was tough on defense and 'finished with 18 points. It was the ball- handling of Harms and Nelson that set up many of Algeria's buckets during the fray. Meyer ran his two-game scoring total to 61 points by leading the locals with 27 tallies during the finale. Kickbush followed Meyer and Nelson with 14 counters. He and Slobe were hampered by early fouls and each missed more than a quarter of action on that account. Doug Meyer was suffering from a touch of the flu, but his performance gave him a 31-point average through the last four games. St. John's Tough Algona had a plenty rocky time getting into the finals. The St. John's Johnnies of Bancroft gave Coach Bob King's crew all it wanted in the semi-final game Thursday night. ' A 34-point scoring blast by Meyer pulled the locals through to the win. Algona led, 24-16, at the quarter and 38-30 at the half, then trailed, 49-46 at the three-quarter mark. The Bulldogs were still behind with three minutes left in the games, 55-54, but then came out of the cocoon, which was woven by fouls and grabbed the verdict. Nelson was second in scoring for the winners with 14 points while Menke got 20, Garry 16. Viiske 12 and Williamson ten for St. John's. The Bulldogs almost lost at the free throw line, but C'Hine up with the fieldgoals at the right time. Hurt's one-sided win over Lu- Vei-ne in the B finals was a definite upset on the basis of the score — 82-55. Burt Mark 22-2 The Bears had racked up 21 straight wins and had a 22-2 mark when the opening whistle sounded, but chances of a vic- .tbry over LuVerne were certainly no more than even. Each team had won two games in the sectional, and the stage was sel for a whing-ding affair. Burt moved in front at the quarter, 16-11, with a deliberate offensive attack. The LuVerne team came back, and the teams left the floor at halftime with the count tied, 29-29. ' LuVerne forged a three point edge in the middle of the third stanza, but Burt came whizzing along and held the upper hand. 45-41, at the three-quarter buzzer. Both teams ran in the final round and Burt ran up the count with a fast-break that LuVerne couldn't handle. John Smiflt, Burl's 6-6 sophomore center, a boy who never attempted basketball until this season, led the scoring parade with 29 points. Right behind him was Jerry Garman with 21. Larry Manus had 13. Mike Ball ten and Gary Giddings nine for Burt, while- Ken Stripling notched 24 and Joe Henderson 20 for Lu- Verne. Burt battled back in the closing half, after trailing by 20 points, to down St. Cecelia's of Algona, 81-73, in an'overtime affair Friday night. Smidt got 29 points in that win, while Cecil Schilmoeller counted 26 and Tom Kinsey 25 for St. Cecelia's. Box scores - finals.
