Algona and Garrigan post victories ^^^^^^^^^^^ • ' ••'"'.. - — _ ' ' f i i " ~ ^^ ^ **ii_l Wjij. Oli-JLt <! Bulldogs roar past Humboldt with 82-50 win Armstrong's canter hits 50 in opener •It Algona high school swept previously unbeaten Humboldt off the court once the Bulldogs got in gear Friday night to post a 82-50 North Central Conference victory to remain unbeaten in three starts, two in loop action. The locals played at Webster Ctty in a non-conference game Saturday night and then will travel to Hampton this Friday. Coach Howie Stephenson's men won this one with a tenacious defense and some great team play. Except for some long shooting by guards Craig Espe and Tom Claude, almost everything the Bulldogs stuffed in the hoop was from close in, many on smoothly executed drive-ins off set patterns. i HUMBOLDT got away to an 8-3 lead before Algona got its offense moving. But the Bulldogs held the Wildcats scoreless for a six-minute period to take a 10-8 first quarter lead and a 14-8, margin before Doug Marso broke the scoring ice with two free throws. Claude banged in a long one and Bill Boldridge scored three straight field goals from close , in to put Algona in command 20-10. Gregg Betts then took over to hit four layups sandwiched arourtd • long Claude fielder to make it 32-18. Roger Meyer, Esp* and Boldridg* all connected to build the cushion to 38-18 as Algona reeled off 14 straight points, the half ended 38-20. Humboldt ,was never in it after that. Meyer and Claude scored Algona's first 13 second half points to make it 51-28 and from then on it was just a matter of how high the score would go in the Bulldog "snake pit". THE COUNT was 59-33 after three periods as Stephenson began sprinkling the line-up with reserves to save his regulars for the Lynx game the following night. Certainly, the Bulldogs had some happy surprises, not the least of which was the play of Meyer, who got his first starting berth and responded with 12 points and a fine floor game. Brocke Laws did an excellent job on -the boards and Claude finished as top scorer with 16 points. Although he bagged just eight markers, Espe was posi lively brilliant in making the Bulldog offense go and some of his passes were classics in the true sense of the word. The balanced scoring put the first seven players in the game with eight points or more. Fenton — Big John Luscombe, Armstrong's 6'8" center, canned 50 of his team's 25 points last Tuesday night as the Tigers edged Sentral, 75-64 here. Matched against Sentral's tallest player, 6'1" Ken Marlow, Luscombe hit 22 field goals and six free throws for his 50-point blast. Armstrong led all the way after assuming a 16-9 first period lead and a halftime advantage that had swelled to 39-26. Sentral got four men in double figures but their total was just five points past Luscombe's. The Sentral. girls won the opener by an 86-63 count. Betty Wehrspan popped in 36 points and Teresa Voigt added 28 for the winners. Sentral led 42-35 ^ewlin __ Pingel __ TOTAL 1 . 1 11 0 1 12 at the half.

The Johnnies led 17-3 over the Trojans after one period. ' The count had mushroomed to 35-11 at the half.

The Bears met Spencer Saturday night in a Coaches Clinic game at Spencer and this week will entertain Newman of Mason City, surprise 63-61 winner over St. Edmond's here on Friday and then travel to Pocahontas to meet Catholic high there Saturday. The locals got away to an arly 22-11 first quarter lead anrj were never headed as they juilt a 37-21 halftime cushion With a front line including two 6'4" and one 6'5" man. Garrigan controlled the Doards and ended up with 85 shots compared to only 46 for Bancroft. THE BEARS converted 30 of 85 while St. John's had 19 of 46. The Bears also led in most other departments. Their half-court press caused Bancroft to lose the ball numerous times on bad passes and Coach Steve McCall's crew pilfered the ball 19 times, with reserve Dave McCarthy grabbing four in less than a quarter of play. Garrigan still didn't shoot too well but simply got many more shots than the visitors. Four boys paced the balanced scoring attack/Dick Muller and Brian LaBarre. , fired in 16 points while Bill Redinf and Jack Muller had 14 each.* 2-ALOONA (Iowa) ADVANCI MONDAY, DEC, 5, 1966 Diers __-.. 3 Meyer __ 0 Nemmers , 0 Schneider Stork .,__,.
