10-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Molnet Thursday, Jan. 26, 1967 Lakota Girls, Ledyard Boys S-Line Champions Lakota grabbed the girls' title, avenging an earlier loss to Sentral with a thrilling 68-67 victory that came In the final six seconds, and Ledyard shot past Ringsted, 64-58, to take the boys' crown in the finals of the State Line Conference Tournament at Armstrong Monday night. The games climaxed a week of activity that featured many well-played contests at several different sites. To say the girls' finals went down to the wire Is putting it mildly. Right after Lakota took its one point lead with six seconds left, Sentral got off a shot at the final buzzer. The ball rolled around the hoop, but failed to drop through, so Lakota nailed the win. Lakota led at the quarter, 1713, at the half, 31-30, and at the three-quarter mark, 47-46, and the game was that close all the way as the lead changed hands 20 times and the score was tied no less than seven times during the fray. A bucket by Teresa Voigt climaxed a Sentral rally in the last 1:02 - and gave the Satellites a 67-66 lead with 16 seconds left. JoAnne Junkermeier of Lakota then fired one with six seconds showing on the clock and the ball squirmed around considerably before falling through for the winning margin. The one-point edge stood up Then the final shot by Yield Elmers of the Satellites wiiirled around and dropped off the rim. Glenda Hertzke topped Lakota in scoring with 36 points, followed by JoAnne Junkermeier •with 18 and Leonard with 14. Miss Elmers paced the defending - champion Sentral club with 31 tallies, while Wehrspan notched 2-4 and Voigt 12. Sentral counted three more field goals than the winners, but a 20-13 edge in free throws brought victory. The boys' game also pretty cozy as Ledyard held the upper hand at the quarter, 18-15, half, 32-31, anl three-quarter mark, 47-43. The title was the first for the Ledyard boys in the meet since 1962. Balance led Ledyard to the victory. While Monte Fischer canned 31 points and Monte Miller 15 for Ringsted, Ledyard hid four lads in double figures. Roger Mayne slammed in 19, followed by Rich Lloyd and Ray Govern with 14 each and Wayne Logemann with 13. While the game was close, Ledyard held the upper hand much of the way, especially in the final half. The teams were even from '.he field and Ledyard held an 18-12 margin from the free throw line.
