Bulldogs Win District Cage Title Move To Sub-State After 69-46 Win Over B-Center Blitzing Buffalo Center in the first and fourth quartets, Algona's Bulldogs captured the District 6 Boys Basketball Tournament with an easy 69-46 over the Bison before a full house at Garrigan Fleldhouse Friday night. The win, sixth straight for the locals, ran their season mark to 19-2 and moved them into the first round of the Sub- state Tournament at Spencer tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at 7:30. IF - and that's a mighty big two-letter-word - the Bulldogs post two more wins in a row, they will find themselves in the State Tournament at DesMoines, just as their predecessors were two season back when the locals copped third in the State. While the Bulldogs again displayed great team balance, with a good blend of offense and defense getting them past the Bison, Dale Teeter canned 28 points, putting him within 12 points of the all-time career scoring record here. He heeds 13 Wednesday night to push him past the mark of 1126 scored by Doug Meyer, who graduated 10 years ago. Algona. shot Buffalo Center off its feet in the first eight minutes of action Friday, breaking from a 6-5 lead with more than two minutes gone to 10-5, 17-6 and 21-7 bulges - and a 23-9 lead, at the buzzer. Teeter pumped in nine points, Dan Merryman, Craig Espe and Tom Claude lour each and Dave Walker two, while three Bison, Pat Orthel, Doug Black and Fete Wessels each got three, walker was a tiger under the boards, grabbing five rebounds, while he, Espe and Claude interrupted the Buffalo Center offense with steals. The count went to 25-9 at the start of the second round before Buffalo Center began to find the range with any sort of regularity. Then, led by Black, Orthel and Wessels, the Bison managed to trade points with the Bulldogs until halftime, which found the locals on top, 38-23. At this point, Teeter had 20 points, Espe six, Merryman, Walker and Claude four each for the Bulldogs, while Black had nine and Orthel and Wessels five each for the Winnebago county entry, which copped the North Iowa Conference championship during the regular season. Buffalo Center hit eight field goals and Algona five during the third round as Algona's lead was chopped, it was 49-39 at the three quarter mark and local fans feared the Bison might be able to turn the trick during the last period. Orthel, Dennis Cushman and Mike Heitland did most of the scoring for Buffalo Center, which out-rebounded the locals, 13-7, during that stretch while Claude accounted for five of Algona's points. A free throw cut the lead to 49-40 at the start of the final stanza, but that was as close as the invaders could get. The Bulldogs called a time out and coach Howie Stephenson put his team into its stall offense - and the Bison couldn't handle it as Merryman canned seven points, including five free tosses, and Teeter six while the Bulldogs put the game away, It was 62-46 with two minutes left and Algona counted the final seven points in the fray to win by 23, Algona was cold only in the third period, and after hitting 72 percent of its shots in the final half against Swea city (and 50 percent for the game) a night earlier, a team can shoot quite well and.still appear cold. Following Teeter in the scoring was Merryman, perhaps the most underrated Bulldog and a lad that always turns in a good performance, with 13 points. Espe got 10, Claude nine, Walker seven and Bill Boldridge got his usual steal and lay-up for the final two points of the night. Orthel led the losers (who were taller than listed on the program) with 13 points, followed by Black with 11, Wessels with eight and Cushman and Heitland, six each. Under the boards, Algona held a 33-28 advantage, with Teeter capturing 11, Walker nine, Espe five and Merryman and Claude four each. The locals got 10 steals, Buffalo Center two, with Teeter, Espe and Walker getting three each, and blocked the only two shots recorded during the contest. Darrell steen, who banged in 18 points for the Bison a night earlier against Ledyard, was blanked by the stingy Algona defense.

Semi Final Algona and Buffalo Center advanced to the finals of the District Tournament with wins over Swea city and Ledyard, respectively, before a huge crowd at Garrigan Fieldhouse Thursday night. The Bulldogs turned a fine last half into a 73-62 victory over the Trojans, while the Bison pulled away after the first quarter and cruised past the Panthers, 67-46. Coach Howie Stephenson'sclub had to come up with a good last half to race past the scrappy Swea City outfit, which had the upper hand, 30-29, at halftime. The score was tied 10 times in the first half and five times in the second before Algona got the job done. •At the intermission, the Bull* dogs had been whistled nine times for fouls and Swea city four, with Dave Walker the only man in trouble with three, Both clubs were hotter than the Fourth of July during the third quarter, with practically everyone getting into the act. Algona was fortunate indeed having Teeter under the boards in this one. The big senior, who also led both'teams in scoring with 24 points (establishing a new singel-season scoring mark at AHS of 487 points), nabbed 20 of his team's 32 rebounds, while Hazelhoff got 15 for the Trojans, who held a 37-32 margin in rebounds for the night. Teeter broke Stg Wood's single season record of 484 set two years ago BISON WIN 67-46 Buffalo Center fought off an early challenge by Ledyard and went on to an easy 67-46 victory in the curtain-raiser Thursday. Ledyard was down, 9-2, after three minutes of action in the first period, then' came back to take a 12-10 lead before the Winnebago county club managed a 15-12 lead at the buzzer. It was 17-17 with two minutes gone in the second stanza when the Bison, getting good scoring balance, began to pull away. LEDYARD (46) FG FT F C. Lloyd 0 3-5 3 R. Johnson 5 2-31 R.
