Chairman U7 Bulldogs Again Retted No. 1 N.W. lowti Team For dyed-irt-the-wool basketball, one will have to go a I6ng Way to surpass the heated battle of last Friday night h«re between Algpna and Iowa Falls high. While the Bulldogs won by the slim margin of 42 to 39 ( the victors had one of their tolighest games of the year and met a foe which in general local opinion, was the best they have faced this" season. In fact it was a battle that found the visitors outscot'ing Algona in the second halfj arid the Bulldogs resorting to a stalling game the final three Minutes to win, protecting their slim lead. Crapser Gbes To Town Charlie Crapser had his biggest night of the season. After Skogstrom opened the contest with two rapid free throws, Iowa Falls with their quartet of six footers, and one other lad only an inch shorter 1 . began to click. 'Scofe at the end of the first quarter was 8 to 6 for Iowa Falls. Douglas replaced Waldron at the quarter for Algona. Then Crapser began io roll. He lied the score with a goal, flipped in another lo give Algona Ihe lead, sank a free lhrt$w, got another basket io put Ihe Bulldogs ahead, 12 io 8, a lead which ihey never lost although ihey had it narrowed. It must be said at this point that Iowa Falls played a beautiful game, worked the ball in nicely, but seemed unable to connect during the quarter. Crapsep counted another free throw, and another basket, and Sigler rolled in a basket before Iowa Falls even counted in the second quarter. Just before the half Crapser tallied two more field goals, and Algona led, zi to 13. Sigler Finds His Spot But it' the second quarter was Crapser's, the third went to Algona's lean and lanky Sigler. He found a spot in the "side pocket" of the court and dropped in three before the visitors quit concentrating on Crapser and gave him closer attention. In the meantime Laurltzen tallied a free throw and Roy Surls of Iowa Falls went out on fouls. But Bob Surls netted a couple from -well out on the cpurt, and as yie third, quarter ended, Crap- •serccaine; thrpugjf jpgaijti wite), a bucket. Score: Algona 32, Iowa Falls, 25. .., . Why Coaciies GroW Old Then came that heart-failure last quarter, better entitled "why coaches get gray." Iowa Falls sank a long one, then a free throw. Sigler retaliated with a long one of his own, then a free throw. But Iowa Falls hooped a gift shot, and then a field goal, and the score stood 36-34 for Algona. ' At this point, Crapser drove in and sank^a closeup bucket, but Iowa Falls kept pace. Then Crapser counted a technical foul gift shot and a field goal. Douglas went back in for Waldron, who had started "the second half. lovva Falls, with tirfte running out, tried everything ni the book, and pulled within a hair, of Algona via free throws. But Sigler got a free throw then the stalling began. 6«i§«l Atafrte i^«»?*« " ir SiS^t^R* WAtfMcfflfflft^' t&WiOteWjH! =''* S&M^y'« Bob Oelgel, .fftihfettlfy Wrestling teSW frrembg!*, 6th'6i« fhateh sfsiftst Nd rt at Ey&ndfttnY Saturda Competing in the' IflLlb.-itettf Three minutes is a lortg time to stall, and it seemed like an hour, as Algona's lead shrank to one point.
