AHS Senior, Junior Mat Teams Conquer Humboldt Algona's Bulldogs won all but four matches Friday night to post a 28-11 victory over an improved Humboldt grappling squad. A fair-sized crowd braved the biting cold and the threat of a snowstorm to see the Junior Varsity win handily, 36-10, and the Varsity equal last year's total number of wins with their fourth victory in five meets. The A-team, wrestling with only three seniors, was pushed hard in all individual matches. The 127 Ib. match saw Steve Claude get a 4-0 lead over Larry Fevold and in the last period manage a pin combination to obtain the only fall of the Varsity matches. The three lightest weight classes were filled witli freshmen, again, and Algona's Denny Peterson, Ed Bennett, and Jerry Simpson all gave a good account of themselves. Simpson wrestled in his first varsity meet and stayed with his senior opponent very well until the last period when the Humboldt man got four points and won 4 toO. Perhaps the greatest crowd- pleaser of the night was Phil Bode, a powerful Algona sophomore, who beat a heavier, more muscular Geoff Mickelson, 4-3. This was the 180 Ib. event and Bulldogs Remain Undefeated 73-50 A furious final three-quarter onslaught, featuring the scoring of Tom Claude, Craig Espe and Rog Meyer, allowed Algona's Bulldogs to post their fifth straight win of the current campaign, 73-50, at Hampton Friday night in a North Central Conference game. The win also upped Coach Howie Stephenson's outfit to 4-0 in the loop. Webster City clobbered Iowa Falls, 75-47, Eagle Grove got past HumlxJdt 48-43, and Algona's next foe, Clear Lake, got past Clarion, 67-58, in other loop frays Friday. The Lions also defeated Eagle Grove 6148 Saturday night. So the Bulldog-Lion meeting Friday will have a lot to do with the final standings.

The home club wiped the boards and got off to a 14-8 lead before Algona got in gear and shot into an 18-18 tie at the buzzer. The aforementioned trio, plus the rest of the nine-man squad, then proceeded to guarantee another victory.

The final eight minutes consisted of mop-up work as the win was sewed up. Claude, Espe and Meyer, one- two-three in season scoring, wound up just that way in this one, with 22, 16 and U points, respectively, while Gregg Betts added eight and Brocke Laws and Tom Jones six each. was followed by another exciting match in which another sophomore, Brad Farnham lost to a fifty-pound-heavier opponent, 5 to 4..
