Council Bluffs (Jefferson) 'was the school that tied with Algona for the number three slot. Coach TLeoli (Champ) Martin has been bringing his boys along well this year, giving them time to devel9p and getting some good experience in meets with conference schools. Apparently the time was just right, judging from the results at the state tournament. Martin has lifted wrestling out of the grunt and groan status and made it a highly enjoyable spectator sport as well as a good body building activity here.

The boys took their frame 45-43 after two blazing overtime periods. The girls coasted through their game, 70 to 32, with the help of a wild second half. . , As a fitting climax to their season, the boys from Seneca came through in a pinch to win their encounter. Things looked good for Seneca for the first three quarters. They led 22-17 at halftime and 31-22 after three quarters of play. In that last quarter, Ledyard caught fire and scored 21 points while Seneca was good for 12. This threw ^the game into overtime and it took two overtime sessions to decide the issue.

The varsity was gradually woftn down after an early game lead to lose 55-44. Bees had the same trouble when they came apart at the seams in the fourth quarter to lose 39-37. Tempers flared and fights threatened during the closing minute* of play. After the game, a couple players had a liitle bodily coniaci but the situation was soon quieted acid no'serious disturbance arose. Algona's varsity started fast, taking a 12-9 lead in the first quarter and seemed to be a fairly good match for Web City even though the Bulldog lineup had been changed considerably. Anderson Out Starting for Algona were Ross. Clegg, Sparks, Hutchison and Samp. Top-scoring Jerry Anderson is out due to a condition reported as pleurisy. Webster City started their relentless march late in the second quarter and by half-time, Blue had tied the score at 22-22. From that point on. Webster City led, although the Bulldogs were . constantly threatening to overcome their deficit. At the end of three quarters of play. Web City was on the long end of a 34-30 tally. That final quarter was one of the rougher sessions witnessed all season. There seemed to no reason .for it ether than taunting of one player. In an attempt to recover tne ball to regain the offensive, Al gona fouled considerable and the last three minutes amounted to a free-throw session. 11-7 Record This 55-44 loss gave Algona a season's record of nine victories and six defeats in regular games. With two wins in the Conference tournament, the record would be 11-7 for the "A" squad. From now on, it is the sectional tournament which is on now and its outcome will determine which teams put their suits in mothballs and which will continue. The Bees hit their second half slump again Friday night after piling up a 27*18 lead in the first half. Jerry Beamish and Hutchinson found the range In the first portion of the game, rifling in longs with ease. Hutchinson hit three in a row. As his share for the evening, Jerry Beamish banged through 17 points. Cool During Intermission The half-time intermission had a cooling effect on the boys and during the remainder of the game, Webstec City closed the gap with some fast basketball. Third quarter scoring put Algona in a 34-25 lead but with Webster City closing fast. It was tied at 35-35 with four minutes remaining and again at 37-37 with two minutes to play. A last minute bucket by Web City sealed the game but not without a good try by Algona. BOX SCORE (44) Flaws .— 2 Brewer 0 16 7 17 fg ft pf Algona . .
