6-Aleona (la.) Upper Dei Moinw Thursday, Dftc. 15, 1966 AHS And C-Lake In "Big Game" While every game on the schedule Is an important one - the Algona Bulldogs face what must be termed their first "big game" of the 1966-67 campaign this Friday night. Coach Howie Stephenson will lead his unbeaten club against the big Clear Lake Lions there In an attempt to remain undefeated and alone at the top of the North Central Conference standings. At present, the locals are 5-0 for the season and 4-0 In the loop. Clear Lake is 4-1 for the season and 3-1 in the league. A win by the Lions will knot the teams at the top of the standings, while a victory by Algona will give the locals a 2-game lead with nine conference games left. So, It is truly a big one. Clear Lake Is the defending North Central champion. The teams split a pair of games last season as Algona was the only team to dump the Lions in the league - and the Bulldogs chased Clear Lake across the finish line, one game out of the lead. Ken Grabinski, 6-5 front court man, has been Clear Lake's big gun so far and carried a 22.5 conference scoring average into the Lions' two wins during the weekend, over Clarion, 67-58, and Eagle Grove, 61-48. Stephenson will again attempt to feature balance to get another win. The scoring to date of guards Tom Claude and Craig Espe has been great. Claude has zeroed In 93 points for an 18.6 average, while Espe isn't far behind with 79 points and a 15.8 mark. Next Rog Meyer with 48 points and a 9.6 average (despite the fact he was blanked in one outing) then come Gregg Belts, 44, 8.8, Brocke Laws, 42, 8.4 and Tom Jones, 32, 6.4. Algona has averaged 74.6 per game on offense and the defense has given up 49.4 points an outing. Meanwhile, the board work has been adequate and the pressing defense has set up lots cf field goals through the first five games. The Bulldogs, however, will have their most severe test to date under the boards when they face the Lions Friday night. Accuracy from the field and free throw line will have to be used to offset the height disadvantage. Santa Claus Is Coming Visit with Santa in our store all dav Saturday. Everybody invited! WHOLE OR HALF - NO CENTER SLICES CUT OUT I Grapplers Host Fort Dodge Friday Hot Bears Host f-D St. Edmond Garrigan's Golden Bears will put their 4-1 season mark (with the four wins in a row) on the mark when they host Ft. Dodge St. Edmond here'tonight (Thursday) - and at the rate the locals have been scoring points and playing defense, the visitors had better go Bear hunting with more than a switch. Coach Steve McCall's team would like another meeting with Ft. Dodge High School. The Dodgers downed the Bears, 82-74, in the season opener at Ft. Dodge, and the locals feel they are now capable of evening the score. Observers seem to agree they could. Garrlgan racked up two op. ponents without any trouble during the weekend, running past Mason City Newman, 92-56, he re Friday, then belting Pocahontas Catholic, 84-32, there Saturday night. And we'll bet Catholic had never lost a game by 52 points I* before in history. And, of course, Newman was unbeaten until the trip here the night before. One Newman win was a two-pointer over St. Edmond. St. Edmond has scouted the Bears at least two times - and it's no secret the locals are loaded with talent. The gunning of guards Brian LaBarre, and Bill Reding, plus the enthusiastic work of top reserve Joe Becker, plus a hardworking defense has made the Bears into quite a machine. LaBarre canned 57 points in the two games during the weekend and now tops the team with 104 points and a 20.8 average. Right behind are Reding with 90 points and an 18 point aver age and Dick Muller with 75 points and a 15 point mark. Muller and Reding will both shatter the individual career scoring record before the season ends, barring any misfortune. Becker has hoisted 43 points for an 8.6 mark, Jack Muller, 34, for a 6.8 record and Jim Youngwirth 31 for a 6.2 average so far. The Bears are scoring at the rate of 82.2 points per contest, with a defensive mark of 54.4, for almost a 28-point spread per game. It's going to take quite a team to defeat the Bears from here in.

Dodge here Friday night. Coach Champ Martin's grapplers have already equalled the number of dual meet wins claimed a year ago when four matmen went on to bring the class A State Championship to Bulldog- ville. They are 4-1 in duals to date - plus a first in the Invitational here and third in the Eagle Grove Invitational. So, to date, the Martinmen have done fine. If they are going to dump the Dodgers, however, they cannot rest on their laurels. In taking four of five duals, the Bulldogs have amassed 131 points to 71 for the opposition, for an average score of 26.2 - 14.2 and that's way ahead of the mark at this time a year ago, too. Top man through all activity so far is Clint Young, 14'^ pounder, who has claimed 11 straight victims without a loss. He has posted 10 decisions and one fall so far. Don Camp, 133, leads the team in falls with four - and he's won eight of nine matches. Other top men are Max Miller, 165, 9-2, with one fall; Larry Monger, 120,8-2, two falls; Randy Riedinger, 138, 7-2; Steve Claude, 127, 7-3, two falls; Phil Bode, 180, 5-3; Brad Farnham, heavyweight, 6-4-1, one tall; Bruce Bennett, 154, 6-4-1; Ed Bennett, 103, 4-3, one fall; and Denny Peterson, 95, 5-5-1. A total of 17 men have seen duty so far this season on the varsity, with Young also the top scorer with 35 points, three more than Camp. Algona has won 13 matches by falls and lost 11 in the same manner. Individual champions for the Bulldogs in the Invitational were Munger, Camp, Young and Miller.
