GHS WINS. AHS LOSES IN CLINIC GAMES Bears Smear Hull Record In 73-62 Game Garrigan's Golden Bears put together a good first three quarters on the way to an easy 73-62 victory over previously- unbeaten Hull Western Christian herevThursday night in the windup of'the Coaches Clinic. Coach Steve McCall's crew, while, not as hot from long range as usual, managed to cruise to quafter leads of 21-9, 38-24 and 55-39 on the way to their sixth straight win. The victory ran Garrjgan's season mark to 6-1. The Bears have a return engagement with Pocahontas Catholic riext up on their slate.

Becker hamlnfered in four field goals and|a| free SJss' r ahd the other two^each canned a pair of fielders as ihe lead went to 11-3 and 17-t before the buzzer. The second stanza was about even, with Garrigan adding another two points to its lead before halftime as six men got into? the scoring column. Reding hit three field goals, Muller two and/ Becker, Brian LaBarre and Jlm>!-Youngwirth one each, while Jack Muller added a free throw to the total. Reding and Dick Muller carried the heavy part of the load under the boards. The third period found Dick Muller, who flipped in a couple of hook shots and a total of four goals, and LaBarre, with five points, leading the way, while Youngwirth and Jack Muller helped under the boards. Becker warmed up again and Jack Muller bucketed a pair of fielders as the Bears put the game out of reach, then saw the visitors threaten a couple of times before the end. A look at the shooting percentages showed the locals hit 48 percent of their shots in the contest, while Western Christian got 37.5 percent - not bad on a night when stiff fingers seemed to bother practically everyone. Dick Muller, however, managed 16 points, while Becker led both teams with 19 as he continued to ring the scoring bell real well. Reding added 10 and LaBarre checked in with 13, while Rens topped the visitors with 17, followed by Brouwer with 16 and Van Voorst with 13. Dick Muller came up with eight rebounds and a trio of blocked shots, Reding got seven rebounds and LaBarre led the theft brigade with four. The all-around play of Becker and Dick Muller seemed to furnish the spark for the club in this one. Hull's ttyo tall lads, Brouwer and Rens, while winding up with 33 points between them, got more than they wanted in the way of battle from the Garrigan defense, which featured the exploits of Dick Muller underneath and the quickies out front and to the sides. And only a couple of times did the visiting duo get a chance to play auntie over and make it pay off with points. Most of Hull's baskets came from long range. Box score: .

The Bulldogs, who had swept to seven straight wins, were chilly as they dropped a cozy 60-58 decision to Jefferson in the opener Thursday evening, while Garrigan's Golden Bears ran their winning streak to six straight and season mark to 6-1 with a convincing 73-62 decision over Western Christian in the finale. Photos shown above were snapped during the two frays. At the left, Algona's Craig Espe, who led all teams in scoring, hitting 20 points, (no. 21) is getting one of his shot attempts blocked by Faaborg of Jefferson (44). Other Bulldogs are Gregg Betts (33) and Bill Boldridge (31), while Bucklin (30) of Jefferson is at the right and Kundrat (20) and Beddall (24), also of Jefferson, are nearest the camera. Tom Claude of the locals is getting the same treatment from Faaborg in the second photo, while Brocke Laws, left, Boldridge, fourth from the left, Betts (33) and Espe, far right, of the Bulldogs and Kundrat, second from the left, Durlan (54) and two unidentified Jeffersonltes surround the action. Joe Becker, who led Garrigan with 19 points, is shown banging away at a lay-up in the third photo as a Western Christian defender falls to head him off. Jack Muller ot the Bears, far left, sees the ball swish through the net on a free throw attempt in the fourth photo, while Bill Reding, second from the left, and Dick Muller (50) of the Bears and Brouwer (63), Kuper (25) and Rens (55) of Western Christian wait for a rebound chance that never came. Brian LaBarre (12) of the Bears leads the pack to the bucket for an easy lay-up in the final photo. Reding (42) and Jim Youngwirth (24) of the Bears and Van Seek of Hull are also clearly shown trailing the play. Beanie Cooper, athletic director and football coach at Garrigan, reported 53 coaches attended the Clinic sessions during the day considered a good turnout because of the forced one-day postponement following Wednesday's blizzard.

Grapplers Nab Osage Title Winning Individual championships in five of the last seven weight divisions, Algona High School's wrestling team turned In a championship performance at the annual Osage Invitational Friday, Nine of Coach Champ Martin's grapplers placed first or second in the victory, which saw Algona edge defending champion West Waterloo by five points. STANDINGS ALGONA 48 West Waterloo 43 Cedar Falls 25 Osage 21 The locals were slated to host Webster City in a North Central Conference dual meet last night (Wednesday), putting a 4-2 record on the line. The Lynx, according to Martin, have outstanding men in Burnett at 112 and Gateweed, who is undefeated at 165. When Don Damp won the 133- pound title at Osage Friday, pinning Heene of West, the Bulldogs ware on their way to victory, as Randy Riedinger, 138, Clint Young, 145, who remained undefeated, Ma 1 .: Miller, 165, and Phil Bode, 180, also came through with final round victories to lead the Bulldogs to the crown. Martin got seconds from Denny Petersen, 95, Steve Claude, 127, Bruce Bennett, 154, and Brad Farnham, heavyweight, to help amass the winning total. The Algona B-teara annexed the championship with 45 points, also five better than West. Cedar Falls counted 28 also and Osage 23. Roger Menneke, 133, and Lance Rutledge, 138, won championships for the locals.

Bulldogs Cold In Jefferson Fray Thursday A 7-game winning skein which had been threatened seriously only once all season ended during a cold spell here Thursday night as Algeria's Bulldogs dropped a 60-58 decision to Jefferson. Coach Howie Stephenson's club battled right to the wire, but if the minds were willing, the hands weren't. Cold shooting from the field actually cost the locals the game, although the coach said afterwards that the shooting did not alone cause the downfall of his club. The scoring of-Craig Espe was mostly responsible for keeping the locals in the game during the first half as both teams displayed an air of tenseness and tight nerves. When the clubs went to the locker rooms at Intermission time, Espe had led a late surge that put Algona on top by a skinny one-point margin, 24-23. All would be better the second half, that's probably the thought that skimmed through local fans' minds - but until the closing min- -•utes, it wasn't true; Thenahair-' .raising' 1 ' rally narrowly missexl salvaging the victory. i: The defeat was a tough one for Stephenson and his hustling outfit to take - but came at a far better time than during the regular season when a possible North Central Conference crown is on the line practically every time out. And Algona still had a 2- game lead at the holiday break with a big one against Clarion going into the books last night (Jan. 3) in the Algona High gym. From the time Algona trailed, 50-40, in the Jefferson fray, many present had written the game off as a lop-sided loss. How wrong those assumptions were. That's when the real fun began (from a fan's viewpoint). A bucket by Tom Claude (season scoring leader who didn't hit a fielder until the final period) was followed by two pointers by Espe and Brocke Laws - and it was suddenly 50-46. Then Jefferson ran the count to 53-46 and Claude retaliated with a fielder and a free toss to cut the margin to four. The visitors tossed in a couple of easy ones, then Claude, who was on a real scoring binge by now, hit a field goal and two free throws and it was 57-53. After field goals by Bob Farnham and Claude made it 59-57 in favor of Jefferson, a free throw added a point to the visitors' lead. Then, for the climax - and it was a dandy. Gregg Betts was fouled and made the first of.a 1-and-l situation. Time was called and plans laid for Betts to rim the next attempt on the left side so Laws would have a shot at the rebound. Betts rimmed all right, but Laws, second man on the lane, was blocked out, the rebound went to Jefferson and it was all over. Espe managed 20 points before going to the bench with his fifth foul in the fourth quarter, while Claude, who finished with a roar (he got 13 points In the blazing finish), wound up with 17 and Laws added 11. Faaberg, quite a performer for the winners, got 19, Kundrat, a fine all-around athlete, added 14 and Bucklin got 10 for Jefferson. The Bulldogs hit 30.5 percent of their shots in the game, with only a 23.9 mark during the first two periods, while Jefferson hit 40.4 percent for the night.

TOTALS 4-3 1.1 r>3 33-72 C ' 0-0 14-20 6 11 J 1 0 it A blistering offensive that saw the team hit 61 percent of its shots In the first half, plus a ball-hawking defense that caused all kinds of mistakes, allowed Algona's Bulldogs to post an easy 99-67 victory over second place Clarion in a North Central Conference game before a full house here Tuesday night. The win was the eighth in nine starts for Coach Howie Stephenson's club and ran the loop record to 6-0, giving the locals a three- game lead on the rest of the field. Next up is a trip to Iowa Falls. The Bulldogs will nit the road for a mooting with the Cadets, who at present are in last place without a win, tomorrow (Friday) night. Most Algona-Iowa Falls meetings are rugged, so the locals don't expect an easy win after the long ride. Algona was explosive in the first and third quarters against the Cowboys. The Bulldogs, led by Tom Claude, Greg Betts and Bill Boldridge, mrjiaged to hit 11 of 14 shots in the first quarter on the way to a 30-12 bulge. Claude canned 11 and the other two eight each as the Algona club broke, fast from a 1,2-8 lead to the 18-point margin at the buzzer. And five steals along the way helped considerably. The shooting .cooled a little during the second stanza, giving the Cowboys a chance to get back In the thick of things as Mike Kalkbrenner, the loop's leading scorer, warmod up and fired a would-be comeback. By halftimo, the margin had been whittled to 52-37, thanks to 17 points by Kalkbrenner. A third quarter sortie by the Bulldogs, however, with Espe and Betts doing most of the scoring and Brocke Laws and Senfral Girls Win And Lose At Invitational Sentral high school's girls team, one of four playing In an invitational tourney at Pocahontas, last week, won its first round game over Pocahontas, 62 to 58, but lost in the final round to Allison - Bristow, one of the state's rated clubs. Allison - Bristow, incidentally, defeated Everly in the first round, 74 to 85. The Sentral game was close all the way, with a 34-all tie at the half. Pocahontas built a 6-point lead early in the second half but the Sentral girls rallied and with the help of fouls which sent two Pocahontas guards to the sidelines, and Betty Wehrspan who poured In 25 points, edged ahead toward the finish and held a slim lead to the final whistle.

After Claude, Espe urJ Boldridge found the range for a 9363 lead, reserves completed the mopplng-up and barely missed reaching 100, despite the firing of Bob Farnham and Rog Meyer. The latter got the four points that ran the total to 99. Clarion wasn't credited with a steal all night, while the Bulldogs, with Espe getting six and Boldridge four, wound up with 15. Each team blocked a pair of shots and the locals held the upper hand in rebounds, 35-18, with Betts grabbing 11 and Laws 10. The contest possibly marked the first time in history an Algona team has had three men over the 21-polnt total inscorinj. Claude, the season leader by a bare margin, canned 26, Espe finished with 23 and Betts got 21. Boldridge notched 12. The totals by Betts and Boldridge were career highs, while the hot-shooting guards, Claude and Espe, each kept their averages for the season near 20 points. Kalkbrenner, the backbone of the Cowboys, displayed an assortment of jump shots that allowed him to finish as the high scorer in the gamp witli 27 points. He got good help from Jack Smith with 19. Box score: Algona's Junior Varsity pulverized Clarion, 74-25, in the curtain-raiser to remiin unbeaten through nine games — and also on top of the loop. Rich Black punched home 16 points and Bruce Olson canned 12 to lead the scoring as the Bullpups led 39-9 at the half.
