BULLD06S OUTPOINT HAMPTON 42-39 Hutch Hits New High With 19; Humboldt Next By Roger Benson .ffe^. pa & rf e lasse ? made the between victory and Fri- , u and used the first time against Hampton with telling effect. He set a new scoring record for the Innl*" £ jumping in eight field total of 19 tosses for a Four In A Row f^u ou . 1 l n ', t miss for a while in the first half when he dropped m four straight field goals on his tricky pivot shot. This kind of i? otll ?5 kept A1 B°na in the game when the rest of the team cooled Jerry Anderson hit for four •withers and five -charity losses to get 13 to protect his seasons average of 12.33 per game. Algona "B" squaders lost a neartbreaker to Hampton, 23-22 after maintaining a lead most of the way. It must be admitted that Algona had a little help from the opposition in that a Hampton man drove in to make a field goal shortly after the second half started ... but made it ir Algona s basket. Bryant was high for the "B' with eight, followed by Devine with five. Anderson Opens . Anderson started the ball rolling in the "A" game by dropping one from the end of the free throw key. This was followed in rapid succession by two free throws by Ross and Anderson. In a tooth and nail first quarter, each team was able to hit for seven points in a hurry and it finally ended 10-9 for Algona. Algona used a man-lo-man defense in the early stages of the game, but after the first halt switched to a zone which was much more effective in tiiffling the Hampton offense. After Hutchison warmed up with his four field goals, Algona held a 23-20 lead at half-time. Hampton Rolls Hampton came bock in the third quarter to hammer In 11 points while Algona was held to nine. It was rather a listless third quarter, with ragged ball handling and spotty defensive work. Although Algona was on top, 32-31, things looked bad. Anderson developed his full head of steam in the fourth quarter, hitting from his favorite spot at the end of the key. With five minutes to play, the score stood at 40-39. Through three minutes of play, neither team could score and as the clock moved on its relentless way. the game grew tense. Algona broke the ice with a free throw to insure at least a tie and followed this with another gift shoot to put the game away. Free throws played a big part in this game, with Algona sinking 14 and missing 13. Hampton had a better percentage with 11 made and six missed. Three points on the free throw line turned the- tide.

Bancroft's Mulligan and St. Joe's McGuire each hit for 19 points to neutralize each other. St. Joe jumped off to a 10-8 lead in the first quarter but Bancroft snatched it away at halftime, 20-17. It was nip and tuck during the final quarter, with the lead changing hands. St. Joe was at a disadvantage after losing its 6'5" McGuire at center on fouls.

Dodge, 35-25 Algona Tops Conference Algona holds undisputed first place in North Central conference basketball circles with a perfect conference record of four wins and no defeats. Webster City had a non-conference with Sioux City (East) Friday night and came out with a 42-21 win. They remain in second spot with 3-0. W Algona 4 Webster City 3 Humboldt 3 Iowa Falls 2 Clear Lake 1 Clarion 1 Eagle Grove 0 Hampton 0 A good defensive player is often the deciding factor in this fire wagon brand of basketball as was shown Friday night when St. Cecelia Acad'- emy of Algona put the squeeze on Sacred Heart of Ft. Dodge, 35 to 2f5, to win here. Art Winkel was assigned the seemingly impossible job of guarding Mortillary, the fastest man to see action at the Academy this year. Art stuck like glue and when the evening was over, Mortillary had only three points, the lowest total of his cage career. Sacred Heart came in with the reputation of being the best team in the eastern end of the Diocese. They went away a wiser and quieter team. Eldon Winkel Hits 17 While Art Winkel was putting a crimp in Sacred Heart's offenes, his brother, Eldon Winkel went Whittemore Gals Trip Seneca 36-33; Boys Lose There was reason for celebration by the Whittemore fern bas- keteers Jan. 2 when they succeeded in downing that tough Seneca team 36 to 33. It was a fine way to start the new year, but the boys' team felt a little different. Seneca whipped through a flashy 54-36 victory over Whittemore to even the count for the night. In female competition, the scoring was limited to three girls on each team. For Seneca, E. Oftedahl led with 12, D. Oftedahl got 11 and L. Foley hit for 10. Thompson, Peterson and Olson were blanked. For Whittemore, Eileen Maahs Jet 12, Elaine Maahs got 8 but E. Mogler was topper for the night with 16. Zumach, Broots and Maahs couldn't hit that night. It was a different story when the boys took over. Seneca decided they wanted this one and really went to work. They held a 16-8 lead after one quarter of play and made it 20-15 at Jialf- time. . ... .. .,„. .. . ./,.. . ... -.:.• The Scoreboard showed a 44-31 lead in the third quarter for Seneca.

Sacred Heart uses a strategy of putting in the reserves to start while the regulars have a chance to see what their opposition has to offer. This plan gave St. Cecelia a chance to build up a 156 lead in the first quarter, providing a cushion throughout the game. By half-time, things had developed to a point where the Blue Knights led 19-12. Each team picked up eight points in the third canto. Sacred Heart rallied in the fourth quarter with 15 while the Academy was held for eight. When the visitors saw that their man-to-man wasn't going to work, they switched to a pressing defense but to no avail. Bob Loss and E. Winkel continued to pour in points while Mortillary was handcuffed. Evens The Count This victory for the Academy avenges a loss they suffered earlier in the season when Ft. Dodge won by seven points.
