The loss gives Estherville a 4-4 mark in Lakes Conference action and boosts Spencer's record to 8-0 in the conference. Estherville Coach George Hess commented following the game, "Spencer is the best ball club we've played in the conference." The Tigers shot a blistering 70.2 per cent from the field- connecting on 33 of 47 shots. But what really did the damage were two brothers with the last name of Stief. Brian Stief poured in 11 buckets and sank four free throws to lead all scorers for the night with 26 points. Brian, who is just a junior, didn't let Estherville's zone defense bother him as he threw in six of his baskets from 20-25 feet out. Brother Rick Stief was just as good from the floor as he got the hot hand by pumping in eight baskets and one gift shot for 17 points.

Estherville enjoyed its only lead of the long night with five minutes gone in the contest when the Midgets held a 6-2 advantage. But it didn't take long for the Stiefs to go to work as they ignited a seven-point spurt to put Spencer out ahead 9-8 with :54 left in the first quarter. Both teams exchanged baskets before the period ended and it looked like it was going to be a nip-and-tuck battle until the second quarter began. Unseason­ ably warm weather on the outside seemed to create a massive heat wave for the Spencer Tigers in the second quarter. The home team outscored the Midgets 26-16 but what was really amazing was the fact that the Tigers connected on 11 of 12 shots for a blazing 91.7 per cent in the second quarter. The scoring barrage enabled Spencer to relax with a 37-26 lead at halftime. Estherville hit on 12 of 22 attempts at the end of the half for a very good 54.5 per cent. Spencer went into the iocker room shooting 84. C— hitting 22 of 26 attempts from the floor. The Midgets had trouble launching a scoring burst as Spencer kept hittLng from long range to take a 46-33 lead with 3:06 left in the third quarter. Spencer enjoyed a 55-39 lead at the end of the quarter and coasted to its eighth conference win of the season. The Midgets were led by Brian Gugc's field goalE for 3 0 points.

The game was marred by 43 personal fouls and a technical foul called on the Estherville bench late in the contest.

Estherville connected on 11 of 24 attempts from the floor at the end of the half for 45.8 per cent and finished the night with 18 of 41 for 43.9 per cent. Algona went into the locker room at halftime shooting 36 per cent and completed the night hitting 20 of 44 attempts from the field for 45.4 per cent Brian Guge, hitting most of his shots from long range, pumped in eight field goals and sank seven gift shots for 23 points.

The Bulldogs were paced by Jim Kinseth's seven baskets and five charity shots for 19 points. John Pittman, a 6' 5" senior, contributed to the winning cause by pitching in five buckets and throwing in six free throws for 16 points. "I think the key to the game was in their bigness and strength," commented Hess. The Midgets remain at 4-4 in Lakes Conference action and are now 6-6 overall and host Sibley Friday night.
