Evasive Net Spells Doom As Algoita Loses, Webster City Bulldogs Lose 44-35 Friday; 3 Games Left It was a bad night, last Friday at Webster City, for the Algona Bulldogs. Between illness, fouls, and inability to hit the basket in the early stages of the contest between the two North Central Conference teams, Algona took the short end of a 44 to 35 contest. Webster City got away to a big lead early, sinking nine out of 21 shots in the first half, while Algona could bag only two out of 20. And that told the story. At the half, Webster City was ahead, 25 to 13. Ten Enter 200 Bracket, Barry Alley Leagues J. Schimr.iel with a 592 (237-189-166) and H.

Whittemore sank 15 free throws, while Fenton was successful on six tries out of 14. Plenty Of Fouls Despite a strong comeback in the second half, during which Algona had an edge in general play, vhe lead was too big to overcome. Hutchison and Sparks both went out on fouls early in the second half, but Vaughn and Samp played a whale of a game as substitutes. Ross also did a nice job. Blue was the big gun for Webster City. He led his team's scoring with five baskets and six free throws. Anderson only played about a third of the game for Algona,* due to illness. The second team also was defeated by Webster City, 40 to 34. Three Games Left Coach King had no apologies for the defeat, and cited the percentage summary from the first half as the whol'e story. The defeat pretty well puts Algona out of the running for the conference title. The Bulldogs have three games left in conference play, one against Clear Lake here tonight (Tuesday), then a second meeting) with Humboldt, there, next Fri-\ day, and a week from Friday the! Bulldogs will get another chance; at Webster City on the local floor. \ At the moment the Webster I City Lynx have first place pretty well sewed up, but Humboldt I should not be counted out of the' !,-Th<» Humbolctt cagers have j Algona to deteat to be sitting pretty if someone knocks off Webster City, and the Lynx have both Hampton and Algona to play. Following that, state sectionals , and district meets will get under- total j way.
