Some, like the upcoming Swea City vs. Buffalo Center disjtricjt game are dependent upon what has happened earlier this season. -In the Trojans vs. Bison example, Swea City wants a crack at Buffalo Center, the only team that has beaten them in 22 games this season. That was a two-point defeat the second game of the seasqii. '(••. >. Other rivalries have years proximity fanning the flames of athletic competition. Neighboring towns put their pride at stake in such a battle, remembering all the while past outcomes, some dating back decades. Two sectional title games and two sectional semifinal games had these elements intensifying the gymnasium atmosphere. '•i •i ; * • : LAKOTA SEMIFINALS The top two semifinal rivalries both took place in the Lakota sectional where Burt and Bancroft squared off in the first Tuesday game and Lakota and Buffalo Center in the second. Bancroft had been improving rapidly late in the season and was expected to give Burt's strong team trouble. However, the Bears pla) ad up to the challenge and wound up winning by 20 points. . i ijv the second contest, Lakota was upset-bound over the favored Bui alo Center team until fouls caught up with two Lakota players. Paifl r'Peterson, a 6-4 center who helped the Eagles immensely ! uricie? the boards, was the first to go in the final quarter. And the 'home' team, still .led when.,, ball-hawk Roger Fiderlick fouled out >'in'|jie closing,. t^wo minute||$lis ball-hahaiihg ability was missed f>£ssitakota waJPunable to hold We ball 1 arid the lead. ; * ' *'• "- 1 J. Torkeison scored for the winners on two clutch free throws ' in|the closing seconds. The only emotional relief in this game came when "a little girl pranced across the court, thinking the sound of a horn signified the end of a quarter of play. J . .-. ' I Swea City prevailed in the Armstrong sectional finals against natural rival Armstrong. Some doubt was cast on the mighty Trojans' dominance after Ringsted stayed within seven points of the champions in a semifinal game the evening before. i Steve Opsal, Galen Reding and Jeff Cronk all fouled out of the title game in a frantic effort to upset the Trojans' game. Cronk led all scorers. Armstrong's shooting cooled off in the second quarter, and Swei City burned the nets in the final quarter. , CORWITH FINALS LuVerne held a comfortable lead over Twin Rivers throughout the game. Twin Rivers, an 84-79 loser at LuVerne last Dec. 8, never threatened the Lions this time. "Our defense was much tougher, our boardwork has improved, . and Dave Hanselman's broken foot has healed," LuVerne coach Sherm Arends said in explaining his club's improvement and performance in the title game. Hanselman is a 6-2 senior forward who missed 1970 action. "We're playing much .better now," Arends concluded, adding that he thinks the Lions have a good shot at a win in the district tournament. ,. LAKOTA FINALS Buffalo Center played better ball against Burt in the Lakota sectional final than they did against Lakota in the semifinal game. . The Bipon out- rebounded the Bears and shot better. Burt finished up with an excellent 15-5 record. /; : <i . ii Semifinals At Lakota BURT ,.; FG FT TP F. Becker 6 4 16 T. Lappp 9 12 30 S. Madsen 8 1 17 M. Behrends 9 i 20 D. Beyers 102 R.

By telephone, Coach Howie Stephenson said he and several fathers went out to test the roads after the game and decided it was best the team stayed over. Four carloads of fans also stayed at Iowa Falls but others, including the pep bus, braved the ele'r ments for the trip home. Several cars never made it to the game - one went into the ditch, others turned back along the way. One carload of parents got back to Algona at 3 a.m. The season's finale didn't generate much excitement at Iowa Falls. Kent Espe led all scorers with 16 points while Bruce Johnson canned a dozen and Randy Roeber added 10 more. Algona had a comfdrtable 3622 halftime lead. "We played good, steady ball," Stephenson said. "Nothing sensational but our defense was tough. ''•""' ,t;..

In the first act, th£ ! ; 'fce&rV 1 avenged "an : eairiler "se'Ssdff'iti'jsis by posting a v '61-53 decision over Emmetsburg. ' In the second act, Steve Me Call's eager s. played basketball (off and on) until 6 a.m. after being snowed in at the Emmetsburg gym. The victory over Emmetsburg was almost an exact opposite of a January"30 contest in Algona in which the E-Hawks notched a 61-56 win over the Bears. In that first game, Emmetsburg jumped to a 10 point lead in the first quarter, stretched it in the second period and then the Bears played catch-up ball »- only to lose. Reverse the roles and you have the story of Friday night's game, which gave Garrigan a 13-6 record for the year. Coach McCall, who spent the majority of Saturday morning in bed after the Bears returned to Algona at 8 a.m., said his boys "played a tremendous firsthalf- the best of the year". Garrigan held an 11 point first quarter lead and jumped to a 19 point advantage in the second period. Emmetsburg took advantage of a poor Bear third quarter to come within 10 and then moved to within 4 points in the final stanza before Garrigan calmed down and kept control of the game. McCall had special praise for the work of senior guard John Heinen. Heinen scored 16 points, grabbed 12 rebounds to lead his team and had some magnificent passing and assists in addition to steady defensive work. Phil McCarthy took scoring honors with 19 points and Chuck Cassel was also in double figures with 13. They'll get a real test defensively when they take onhigh- • scoring Humboldt in the first Vound of the sectional tourney next Wednesday (March 3) at 7:30 in the Algona High gym. Humboldt's Wildcats stomped the Bears early in the year and it is still a tender topic for the defensively-proud Golden Bears. Garrigan fans will be looking for another reversal of roles in that one. < The Garrigan junior varsity lost'a 55-43 preliminary game to' Emmetsburg as coach Mike Stence played a sophomore line-up. Don Kenyon led the young Bears with 24 points. The JV squad finished the year 14-4 Heinen R. M.

Clarence Hunt of Algona are pleased with the location and the timing of the Iowa High School Class AA Wrestling Tournament and the National junior College Wrestling Tournament. The Hunts didn't have to make a choice of which of their wrestling sons to watch, Duane or Gene. DUANE WILL wrestle for North Iowa Community College in the national JC meet at Worthington, Minn., March 4-6, just a week after Gene's Iowa state meet matches in Ames. Both are about 100 miles from here, allowing relatives and friends to attend, -o- THREE OF DUANE'S teammates on the 1969 Algona state championship team have winning records for Louisiana State University. Larry Taylor was 4-4 at 150 pounds, Phil Bode 5-2 at 167, and Bruce Bennett 7-3 at 177 going into a Feb. 20 triangular meet. Taylor was injured and doubtful for the meet, -o- SWEA CITY'S basketball machine is gaining momentum, it seems, with continuous high- scoring. The Trojans averaged 76.6 points per game while allowing about 49 per game going into its sectional semifinal game against Ringsted last Wednesday, -o- OUR AREA HAD two outstanding freshman performances this season in girls basketball. Patty Grubb of Burt averaged more than 40 points per game, and Nancy Hamilton of Corwith- Wesley won first place in Britt sectional tournament free throw competition after a good year at forward. Bonnie Giesking of Titonka was second in the Kossuth County Advance — 5 Monday, March 1, 1971 Britt free throwing and competed along with Nancy in the district shooting at Hampton. -o- HOW DOES A school come up with a good girls basketball team? In Lakota's case, it started by getting about half of the girls in school to go out for the sport. There are 78 students in Lakota high (grades 9-12). Eighteen girls went out for basketball. - flip YOU HAVE spring fever as barl as I have, you're probably thinking about some summer travel. If you're planning on taking in some national parks, you may want to consider purchasing an annual Golden Eagle Passport which would permit entrance for your car and its occupants into all federal areas operated by the U. S. Forest Service. THE PASSPORT costs $10 and applies to the calendar year. Write the Iowa Conservation Commission, 300-4th St., Des Moines, 50319. -o- CONGRATULATIONS to the Algona High wrestling squad. The obvious disappointments within the season should not be allowed to obscure tlie fact that it was a successful year. The competition in this area was keen and competent, as evidenced by the fact that 18 wrestlers from North Central Conference schools placed in the state meet. Algona more than held its own.
