GHS, AHS EACH TAKE PAIR WEEKEND GAMES Bulldogs Jump To First In Bears Race To Bancroft And Loop Standings Spencer Wins Algona High School's Bulldogs bolted into first place in the North Central Conference with their fourth straight win of the season without defeat, a not- easy 52-48 conquest of Webster City there Saturday night. So, the Bulldogs now have a 3-0 loop record, with a long trip to Hampton for another conference fray coming up this Friday. And Hampton is right behind the locals in the standings with a 2-0 record. STANDINGS W L ALGONA 3 0 Hampton 2 0 Clarion 1 1 Clear Lake 1 1 Humboldt 1 1 Webster City 1 2 Iowa Falls 0 2 Eagle Grove 0 2 It appeared the charges of Coach Howie Stephenson were tired in the game at Lynxville Saturday night after their best showing of the season against Humboldt. However, after being held to a 2-2 knot by the Lynx in the first four minutes of action, Brocke Laws and Craig Espe started finding the range and Algona leads of 8-4 and 16-9 went on the board before the period ended. Webster City came back, and with Larson and Kelly the top gunners, cut Algona's halftime edge to 27-23. The Lynx then crept up to 27-26 at the start of the third round before Espe and Tom Claude began firing in points from all angles - and Algona carried a 42-33' lead into the fourth period. Shooting accuracy and steals allowed the Bulldogs to nick the Lynx. The locals were out- rebounded, 33-22, thanks mostly to the work ot Shelton, who also had three steals and a blocked shot, but Algona managed 10 steals, with Rog Meyer, Espe and Claude the top thieves with three each, to six for the losers. Laws, for the second straight night, led the club in rebounds with 10 as he continued to show improvement. Espe was the top scorer, getting 19 points, while Claude tossed in 15 and Laws 14. Kelly got 14 and Larson. 11 for the Lynx. Box score: ALGONA (52) Meyer Laws Betts Espe Claude Jones Runaway wins over Spencer and Bancroft St. John's allowed Garrigan's Golden Bears to up their season mark to 2-1 this weekend. Coach Steve McCall's club bounced the Johnnies, 80-49, Friday night here, then belted Spencer 81-53 there in a Coaches Clinic contest Saturday night. The locals host Mason City Newman here Friday and travel to Pocahontas and a meeting with Catholic the following evening. The McCallmen used a tight press on defense and red hot shooting during the second period to break away from Spencer and the home club never threatened after the intermission. Bill Reding topped the locals in scoring for the second time in three outings. He canned 20 points, with six of his seven fielders coming from long range. Brian LaBarre wasn't far behind as he checked in with 16 points. All eight of his two-pointers were from well out on the court. Next in line came Dick Muller with 14 and Don Courtney, reserve guard, 11. Under the boards, Dick Muller was tremendous. He gathered in 13 rebounds - and shared ball stealing activities with LaBarre at four each. Reding captured 11 rebounds, while Jim Youngwirth came up with seven. Box score: GARRIGAN (81) D. Muller Youngwirth J. Muller Reding LaBarre Becker Courtney Nitchals McCarthy O'Brien DUMP JOHNNIES It took the Bears about six minutes to really get rolling against St John's Friday night, but 11 points in the final two minutes of the first period opened a 22-11 lead at the buzzer, - and the locals had little trouble remaining on top the rest of the fray. It was 3-2 after two minutes of action, 7-6 two minutes later and 11-9 before the first big rally. Launched into orbit by the rally, the locals went on to lead, 37-21 at halftime and 63-36 at the three-o^iarter mark. The Johnnies closed the gap during the final eight minutes to 31 points as reserves flooded the court. Dick Muller and Brian LaBarre teamed to lead the scoring with 16 points each, while Bill Reding and Jack Muller each accounted for 14. Steve Vaske led both teams in scoring with 18 points for the Johnnies, while Chuck Farrow added 14. Box score: GARRIGAN (80) Reding D. Muller LaBarre J.

In fact, the Wildcats, who probably have one of the best teams around, seemed to have everything they needed, to belt the locals during the early minutes of action. Except for a free throw by Rog Meyer, which opened the scoring, Algona couldn't find the range through the first four minutes Repeated steals and faulty ball handling by the visitors gave the Bulldogs the opportunity to score —and they responded brilliantly. Betts and Bill Boldridge each canned four buckets and Claude added three on the way to a 38-20 halftime bulge. Humboldt, led by Doug DeSmidt, tried to narrow the gap during the third period, but to no avail. Claude, Espe and Meyer kept bombing and put the locals on top, 65-39, with eight minutes remaining. Stephenson's reserves took over through much of the final round and there was not much of a let-up In the scoring, except there were less field goals and more free tosses coming down the stretch.
