Balance Gives Bulldogs 86-68 Win, Iowa Falls Algona's Bulldogs managed to out-shoot Iowa Falls and gained aa 8-poInt leadt at the half, then went on to post an easy 86-68 decision In a North Central Conference game at Iowa Falls Friday night. The Cadets were never in the game after halftlme. Despite the win, Algona's chances for a share of the loop title were erased as Clear Lake posted a lop-sided victory at Humboldt the same night to clinch the crown. Coach Howie Stephenson's club, with an 11-2 mark and a 15-2 season record, will attempt to close out the regular season. with a final conference victory over Hampton here tonight (Tuesday). The game Is a makeup affair for one fogged out here Dec. 10. Iowa Falls couldn't do much about Algeria's 50 percent shooting from the field and 80 shooting from the free throw line, and with Algona's defense limiting Jim Klein, Cadet guard who is fifth in the loop scoring race, to only 11 points, the job was simplified. The Bulldogs trailed, 3- 2 after two minutes of play - and it took a little while to get off the ground. It was 6-5 with four minutes gone, then the race began. The locals held the upper band, 13-9, at the six minute mark and led . 19-12 at the quarter as Craig Espe accounted for six points, Dan Merryman five and Dale Teeter four. / Teeter was heard from during the second stanza, however, as Algona stretched its lead to 24-14. Then the Cadets pulled a little comeback, led by Whitney, Sail and J. Meyers, and despite 13 points by Teeter, eight by Merryman and four by Dave Walker, trailed by only 44-36 at the half. Tom Claude led Algona's third quarter surge as he pumped in eight points. Teeter banged home seven, Walker five and Merryman four as the Bulldogs postedleads of 48-37, 56-41, and 59-43. It was 68-45 when the third period ended. It was mostly a clean-up job during the final eight minutes and the Cadets managed to close the gap to 18 points st the buzzer, but at no time was the outcome in doubt as Teeter snagged another 12 points coming down the stretch. The final wind - up showed good balance, plus a 36-point night by Teeter, the difference. The cadets hardly knew where the points were coming from next - and this has always been one of Stephenson's most popular Ideas - to keep the opposition guessing as to just who will score. Algona's fast break worked well, and on defense, Espe, Claude and Walker accounted for most of Algona's 11 steals. Under the boards, Teeter nabbed 13 rebounds and Walker 11. • Merryman scored 19 points, tops for his career, Walker punched home 15 and Claude added 10. For the losers, Whitney got 18, J. Meyers 16, Sail 14 and Klein 11. BOX SCORE: ALGONA(86) FG FT F Teeter Merryman Walker Espe Claude Kraft 14 7 6 3 3 o 0 0 8-8 5-6 3-4 0-1 4-4 o-o 0-0 0-2 Algeria (la.)
