The Algeria Upper Pes Moines, Algona, Iowa, March 8,1938 Algona Hi Misses State Meet by 2-Point Margin Trim Britt, Hampton Lose to Webster City . In Final With two regulars out of the line up, the Algona high school Bull dogs whipped two opponents in thi district basketball tournament a Mason City, last week end, but dropped the final overtime game to Webster City, 30 to 28, Saturday night. It was a story of "forgotten men —this unexpected spurt of the Bulldogs, which almost carried them Into the state meet this week. It was a story of fine teamwork, a fighting spirit, and good coach- Ing. Beat Brltt, Hampton Algona opened the tournament by defeating Britt, then advanced a notch by taking in Hampton, 29 to 24, while Webster City was upsetting Mason City. In the final game, It was anybody's contest. At IIMS** Cutset, Webster City took a small lead, and held it most of the first quarter, but Algona edged out in front In the second period, and led at the half, 17 to 14. The Bulldogs kept that lead most of the time, until the final minute of the regular game, when Webster City tied it up just before the gun. In the over time, Webster City tallied first, but Algona tied It up. Then another Webster City basket proved the winning margin. Mnokey, Michel Star During the regular playing sen- son, it has been Lynk and McNeil! who have done most of the scoring. They played the finest games of their career in the tournament, but they were under a handicap in tha tourney: visiting teams played for them, and put their closest guards on the Algona scorers. At that point, Muckey and Michel stepped into the picture, and with some beautiful shots, kept their team in the race all the way. Junior Long, substitute guard, turned in a fine performance. He not only was a defensive power but handled his assignments on the offense wtih snap and accuracy. Even In the final game, It is safe to say without detractnig from Webster City that the Algona team did much the best ball handling. Don Wlllasson was forced out of tournament play with the mumps and Bruce Miller had a chipped lone in his arm that kept him from :he lineup. Despite the loss of two •egulars. the Bulldogs were every bit the surprise team of the meet, and drew hearty praise from all sides. To SOP State Meet The Junior Chamber of Commerce vill make the boys a gift of a trip o the state meet, this coming Sat- irday. as a reward for their splendid showing. Making the trip will be Kenneth •ynk, Bob Muckey.
