Algona loses, Garrigan wins Tall Lions too much for Bulldogs Algona high school knows how David felt when he went up against Goliath. The only trouble was the Bulldogs couldn't handle the rangy Clear Lake Lions for more than the first half and went down to defeat here Friday night, 88-72 in a crazby affair that turned hot (tempers that is) in the final minutes. For the first half ,Algona played the visitors on even terms and with great outshooting, look a 36-34 lead at the half on Dale Teeter's last second layup. And then things changed, and in a hurry. Algona got a free throw from Al Priebe for its last lead at 37-36 and then Morisky and Warren hit eight straight points for the visitors and Algona never recovered from the shock. When the three big Clear Lake men took a breather late in the third period, guard D. Anderson took over for four straight buckets and a 58-47 lead that Algona never threatened. CLEAR LAKE led 63-53 after three quarters and 68-53 at one point early in the fourth period. Steve Hardy and Teeter bagged two buckets each and guards Craig Espeand Tom Claude got it down to 72-65 with a couple of minutes left. From that point on, the game turned into a free throw contest. And Clear Lake got most of the chances. In the end, Algona fouled out three players and Hardy was playing on borrowed time with four. But the Lions, losers only to Eagle Grove in the conference and rated No. 4 in the northeast, didn't win the game at the free throw line — they won it on the boards. BOASTING three men in the 6'5" range, they dominated both baskets and got far more shots than Algona. The Bulldogs kept pace during the first 16 minutes on fine outshooting by Teeter, Hardy and Merryman. But they couldn't stand the pace, particularly when the Lions got oodles of easy buckets on Algona's pressing defense. Morisky alone had 23 first half points and most were simple lay- ups. He ended with 31 points to top all scorers but conference scoring leader Dale Teeter was not far behind with 28 and he earned every one of them. He'd have gotten 50 if he would have had the ball more. Runnerup in the scoring race, Tom Anderson, was held to 10 points and he got his first basket right at the end of the first half. Coach Howie Stephenson got groat mileage from his sophomore guards Claud* and Espo, and in a couple of yoars, somo of these clubs aren't ever going to get the ball past mid- floor on these quick lads. But Friday night they just didn't have the experience or the strength to go up against boys 6 inches taller and then some. Dan Merryman finished as run nerup Bulldog scorer with 17 points while Steve Hardy pitch ed home 14. Granbisnki got 20 for Clear Lake, most coming in the second SPORTS 4—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE MONDAY, FEB. 8, 1965 Four carry Algona district mat hopes four Algona high school wrestlers will carry the Bulldogs' hopes in the district tournament which begins tonight (Monday), at 6:00 p.m. at Osage.

Carroll is rated as No. 14 in the state in current ratings. Granville had just a couple of minutes of glory and then the Bears took over. Spalding led 8-5 at one point in the first quarter before Garrigan reeled off seven straight points to assume a 12-8 lead that was never threatened. The difference was 23-15 by the end of the quarter. The Bears assumed a 37-24 halftime lead and were in complete command. Coach Steve McCall's crew, now 7-8 for the season, were in front 57-37 by the end of three quarters. BALANCED scoring was the key to the Garrigan victory although Chuck Becker played one of his finest games in leading all scorers with 18 points. After that, Bob Smith and Dick Muller had 10 each, Joe Ringsdorf added nine and Don Potthoff, Dick Bleich and Bill Reding each had seven points. In fact, Coach Steve McCall used 10 players and every one dented the scoring column. Garrigan hit 27 of 65 shots for a 41.6% shooting average. Becker helped this mark considerably with seven for 10. The Bear's sophomores were unexpectedly defeated, 48-45 in the preliminary game. It was only their fourth loss of the campaign.
