BULLDOGS NIP EAGLES 65-57 Hang On To Post Second Straight In Hot shooting by Tom Claude, Craig Espe and Gregg Betts in the first half allowed Algona's Bulldogs to withstand a last quarter rally on their way to a 65-57 North Central Conference victory at Eagle Grove Saturday night. The win was the second without a loss for the locals. Coach Howie Stephenson'sclub has a busy weekend ahead, facing Humboldt here Friday night, then traveling to Webster City the following evening. Both teams have been impressive in early outings, and the Lynx posted a win over favored Clear Lake in their opener. It took the Bulldogs, who counted 101 points, a new school record, in their opener, a while to roll against the Eagles. The home club got off to a 4-0 edge before Claude's first bucket broke the ice. After four minutes of action, Algona held a slim 8-7 lead and it went to 14-10 before the locals managed an 18-13 margin at the buzzer. Claude and Espe each had six of the 18 points. Betts canned four and picked up six of Algona's seven rebounds during the eight minutes. Claude and Betts each canned six points and Espe four during : the hot second period, which saw Algona up its lead to 10 points and maintain it. Espe managed a trio oi' steals and Tom Jones blocked a pair of shots to thwart Eagle Grove's offense. So, the Bulldogs went to the locker room at the half with a 37-25 bulge that at the moment seemed safe enough. And through the third period, the lead again ranged from 10 to 15 points, so victory seemed secure. Brocke Laws fired the locals during that eight minutes, canning five points and grabbing four rebounds. As it turned out, his spark was needed. Espe picked up his fourth foul early in the third-quarter, and sat out quite a bit of the contest from then on. Rog Meyer helped take up some of the slack with play that at times was again * * » Box score: ALGONA (65) FG FT F Boldridge 0 0-12 Laws 3 1-11 Betts C 0-0 2 Espe 82-24 Claude 8 2-62 Meyer 4 0-12 Jones 0 2-3 1 Farnham 0 0-10 29 7-15 14 EAGLE GROVE (57) FG FT F Smith 1 1-1 2 Hoath 3 3-61 Brauman 7 5-61 Hogenson 7 3-3 1 Blackman 2 0-14 Christensen 10-00 Salmon 1 0-10 Asche 0 0-0 2 Bernard 0 1-11 22 13-19 12 Coach Keith Christie's junior varsity also won its second without a loss, 71-40, in the curtain- raiser, with Dale Peterson getting 19 points, Craig Taylor 15 and Bruce Olson 13. The locals led, 38-20, at halftime. smooth. Coming down the stretch, the locals couldn't make a stall work very effectively and the Eagles, taking advantage of Algona mistakes and the shooting of Mark Hogenson and Bill Brauman, came dangerously close to salvaging the game. The Bulldogs, however, had enough poise left to win. Stephenson got a good chance to study his team's good and bad habits in this one - and will work the squad hard this week in an attempt to get ready for the big ones this weekend. Claude and Espe share scoring honors with 18 points each, followed by Betts with 12. Brauman topped the losers with 19, while Hogenson notched 17. Betts grabbed 14 rebounds to double the Eagles' best, Steve Hoath and Mark Blackman. Algona held a 30-24 rebounding edge and a 10-8 margin in steals, with Espe and Claude each coming np with four.

Eddie Bennett, a freshman, turned in a win with a fall in the 103 Ib. event, his third pin in a row in his first varsity year. Wayne Taylor, another freshman, subbing forTomLaing who was out with an injury, lost his match but gave a good account of himself.
