Clarion edges Algona in overtime, 61-57 Lose game on free throws; la. Falls Friday Algona outrebounded big and rangy Clarion but couldn't outscore them and went down to their third conference defeat of the campaign, 61-57 in a sizzling overtime session in the Bulldog gym Tuesday night. Bthind almost the entire game, the Bulldog* peeked •way and finally got in front with five minute* to go only to piddle away their chances in the final minutes. The win moved Clarion above Algona in the North Central standings. Algona travels to Iowa Falls Friday night to finish up the first half of the loop campaign and desparately needs a win there to keep their first division chances alive. A title or runnerup position has long since been forgotten. The game was ragged all the way-but it was the best rebounding performance turned in by Algona all season. Big Al Priebe did a fine job under the boards until he was waved to the bench with five fouls midway in the third period. He got ample help from Steve Hardy, Dale Teeter, Dave Walker and Ev Maahs. But Algona made many mistakes — traveling, dribbling and various other violations, particularly in the first half when Clarion took command after an 8-5 Algona lead. Paced by five straight points by leading conference scorer Larry Hull, the Cowboys notched nine in a row to taKe a 14-10 lead and were in good shape from then on until late in tne game. They led 16-10 at the quarter and 28-18 at one point in the second period betore the Bulldogs reeled oil' nine straight points of their own to pull within one. The Cowboys went to the locker room- with a 33-28 bulge and immediately widened it to 37-28 when the third period started.

The bulldogs will travel to Hampton Saturday night in what promises to be a rugged match for the locals — winners of six of seven dual meets this season. Biggest surprise was the defeat of unbeaten Denny Miller in the 138-pound class by Dave Jahnel of Osage, 3-2. Miller had been ill most 01 the day and this probably accounts in part for-his loss.

Two r ieeter tree throws with 37 seconds to play sent the game into a 55-55 overtime but the Bulldogs really didn't make it much ot a contest in the extra three-minute session. Hardy's long jumper was the only Algona points and that was far snort since the Cowboys got a rebound basket and tour tree throws.
