The locals posted their 12th straight victory and upped their season mark to 12-1 with an impressive 63-50 verdict over Carrol Kuemper's Knights. A large crowd saw the finale in the Sioux City auditorium. The loss gave the Knights a 6-3 season mark. St. John's of Bancroft dropped a 69-55 decision to Gran- vllle Spaulding in the consolation round of the class A division earlier Sunday and placed fourth. Reding and Dick Mulier, largely responsible for the win, fired the club during the early going, with Reding getting nine points as the locals raced to a 16-9 lead at the quarter buzzer. Mulier and brother Jack were in charge under the boards for the taller Bears. Mulier hit three goals, including a hook shot, running his total to 12 points as the halftime lead went to 33-24. Reding had 11 points at intermission time and Jim Youngwirth flipped in four points during the second stanza to help the Bears' cause. Joe Backer, held to two points during the first half, hit three goals and Dick Mulier and Reding added four points each as the locals upped the bulge to 50-34 at the three-quarter mark. Eleven straight points allowed the Bears to steam ahead. Coach Steve McCall employed his stall offense during the final stanza as the win was sealed. Dick added five more paints to his total, winding up with 21, while Reding finished with 17. Yoangwirth in a reserve role, counted eight. Dave Daeges topped the losers with 18 points, while Louie Bil- meier got 12. Brian LaBirre of the Bears got into foul trouble with three in the first period and Dick Mulier had three by halftime. Ten fouls were called on the winners in the first half - and a total of 14 in the game, while the losers committed 19.

Toe locals dumped Newman, 9256, here Dec. 9. Grapplers Dump Osage; Readying For Tourney Victories in the final three matches of the night gave Algona High School's wrestling team a 23-16 victory at Osage Friday night. The win closed the dual season as the locals finished with three straight victories and a fine 9-2-1 mark - one of the best in the school's history. The Bulldogs, who were 9-2 In 1962-63, 11-2 in 1963-64 and 10-3 the following season, posted a 4-7 dual record last year, then grabbed the state class A crown on top-flight performances by four men. They were also second in 1962-63, third the next year and second again in 1985 before winning the title last spring, all under Coach Champ Martin, who has been at the helm for about 19 years. They'll be after another shot at the bullseye when the Sectional Meet opens Friday, Feb. 9, at Clarion. The field there will be tops in the state, probably, as Sectional and District winners from this area practically always do well in the State Tournament. There will be nine teams in the 2-day meet at Clarion, with winners andrun- ners-up in each weight class slated to move on to the District. Algona led four times at Osage - and the final lead stood up for the win, withMoxMiller, 165, taking a decision to give the Bulldogs the upper hand, 17-16, followed by decisions at 180 by Phil Bode and by Brad Farnham, heavyweight, for the final margin. Denny Petersen, 95-pounder (a freshman who has been doing a lot of winning the last two-thirds of the season), gave Algona a 3-0 lead with a decision, but the locals dropped the next pair and trailed, 8-3, before Larry Munger, 120, and Steve Claude, 127, won for a 9-8 margain. Another loss and a draw made it 13-11, with Osage on top. Then Clint Young, 145, chalked up his 20th win without a loss and it was 14-13, but a defeat at 154 set the stage for Miller, Bode and Farnham. Putersen upped his record to 12-7-1; Munger to 15-4-1; Claude, 11-8; Miller, 18-2; Bode, 12-4-1; and Farnham, 10-8-2, with their decisions.
