PAGE TEN THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15 Burt Wins Narrow Victory in County Mat Tournament LEADS LUVERNE BY TWO POINTS IN CLOSE MEET Grant, Gilmore City Also Take Part in Tournament. Burt, Fell. 13—Buvt high school wrestlers won four individua 1 championships, one second place land two consolation matches to score 26 points and nose out Lu Verne, which scored 24, in a hotly contested third annual county tournament before a capacity house at iLu Verne Saturday afternoon ano evening. Lu Verne, pre-tournament favorite with five undefeated men, won two individual championships, four seconds, and two consolation matches. sLichty was the only Lu Verne boy to keep his slate clean for the year. Grant, with only five men en- iterecl, won two individual championships and three seconds, scoring 20 points. Coach Richard Skarshaug, of Grant, with only eight men on his wrestling squad, made a creditable showing and scored most of the upsets. Gilmore City, new team in the annual tourney, entered five boys ibut because of inexperience they scored only one point in a consolation bout. These boys will be a strong team next year, with added experience. They showed plenty of fight and good sportsmanship. Burt Has Two Champions. Coach M. C. Bowie, Burt, with only two regulars from last year's county championship team, captured the trophy for the second time in two years . Burt has lost only two meets in ten, having scored 238 points to 122 for opponents. •Ralph Bristow, Burt, completed an undefeated year, winning his tenth victory Saturday night and the 135-lb. title. Eddie Stewart, outstanding Burt athlee who last year won first in county and district and placed fourth in the state in wrestling, has completed his second undefeated season in wrestl ing. He won his second county title in the 105-Hb. class Saturday. First outstanding match in the tourney was Smith, Lu Verne, and Reed, of Grant, the latter winning. Smith had previously defeated the Grant hoy twice, but iReed was not to be denied Saturday night. Matches Close and Exciting. Eddie Stewart gave a clever exhibition of wrestling toy defeating Barger, of Grant. A preliminary go between Barger and Cohvell, Lu Verne, in the 105-lb. class was a thriller, Barger winning by a fall in an overtime period. In the 115-lb. class Boever, of Grant, defeated Wille, Lu Verne, former 105-lib. title holder to whom Boever had lost in a dual meet. The final match in the 115-lb. class was a thriller, M. 'Bahling, Burt, winning by a close decision in an overtime battle from Boever, former title holder in that weight. •Outstanding match in the 125-lb. division was a preliminary go between 1 M. Bristow, Burt, and Mattoon, Lu Verne. At the end of the regular match Bristow held a time advantage of 1:08, but the referee threw the match into overtime. Neither man secured an advantage in the first period, but Mattoon gained an advantage in the second overtime. Two Undefeated Men Meet. The 135-lb. match saw two undefeated men vying for the county title, but M. Bristow, Burt, kept his slate clean, this being his tenth win this season. The 145-lb. clash was probably the feature of the tourney, for on it depended the outcome of the meet. Carter, Burt, veteran, met G. iFarrell, Lu Verne, winner in the ed a fall in the second overtime to put his team in the running. 126-lb.—Mattoon (<L) WRESTLER . E DDIE STEWART, Burt high school athlete, has completed second undefeated dual meet season, winning 12 consecutive matches. He has been high point man on Coach Bowie's teams three years and has won 36 matches in 41 starts in three years of competition. Eddie has won the county 105-lb. title two years, the northwest Iowa district championship in that veight last year, and .placed fourth n the state meet. Eddie -has also -been a regular nfielder on the baseball team, and le was awarded shortstop berth on -he 1933 "All State" prep team. He s a member of the senior class, takes an active part in dramatics, intl is an excellent student.

LEDYARD-L, R, BOYS TO PLAY TIE OFF HERE Battle Here Tonight Settles Title in Conference. Lone Rock, Feb. 12—In games on the North Kossuth Conference schedule the (Lone Rock teams jumped into a tie for both boys' and girls' :honors by winning fast games at Ledyard Friday evening. With most ot the Lone Rock population 'transplanted to the Ledyard gym Friday evening, play •started in fine style for the visi- T HE LKDTAIU) high .school basketball squad practiced in the high school gymnasium here Monday evening' preparatory to the game tonight with Lone Bock to decide the championship of the North Kossuth Conference. Bode was expected yesterday afternoon for practice preparatory ito the sectional tournament; tors. The Lone Rock girls got away to an early lead, and it looked like clear sailing. The first quarter ended 10-6 in Lone Rock's favor. Second Quarter Hard-Fought The second quarter did not look was 11-4, 17-14, 23-23, 34*29. Spencer High Point Man. Spencer was high-point man for Algona, sinking four baskets and three free throws before he was put out on personal fouls. Cretzmeyer was second with three baskets and a free throw. Other points were well divided. Nelson, of Eagle Grove, was ligh, with four baskets and a free throw. B. Post and Bruns were Algona substitutes. On the home floor last week Wednesday Algona defeated Humboldt, 22-18. The score by quarters was 9-4, 15-10, and 20-16. Cretzmeyer was high-.pointer, with three baskets and three free throws, but was put out on personal fouls. Other points were well divided. B. Post, Shilts, and D. Post were substitutes. Freak Scoring Friday. A game against Clarion Friday ended in Clarion's favor, 23-22. The score by quarters was 8-7, 17-8, and 21-13, Clarion leading in the first quarter, Algona in the second and third. Clarion didn't score in the second quarter, and Algona failed to score in the final quarter. These were freaks of the sport. A more than double lead for Algona at the half was squelched in the final four minutes of the last quarter, when Clarion brought the score to a tie, 21-21. In the first overtime period neither team scored, but in the second Clarion Bank a basket, while Algona sank only a free throw. Cretzmeyer was high-pointer, with three baskets, but missed four free throws, the last one ten seconds (before the gun was fired for the last overtime period, which, if sunk, would have caused a third overtime period. Sellstrom sank five out of six the throws. Only first string Algona men were used. Against Webster City Saturday evening Algona again trailed most of the game, the quarters ending 6-4, 12-8, 20-14, Algona leading only in the first quarter, and the final score was 23-24 in Webster City's favor. Sellstrom was high for Algona, with five baskets and a free throw. Shackelford was put out 'On personal fouls. B. Post and D. Post were substituted.

'In this period the Ledyard girls did their best work, scoring five points while Lone Rock was gathering hree. Lone Rock was leading 13-11 at the half. In the third quarter, however, the Lone Rock girls steadied and outscored Ledyard, 6-2, to go into the last quarter with a 19-13 lead. The last quarter was played on even terms, each team scoring six points, and the final score was Lone Rock 24, Ledyard 18, which tied Lone Rock with the Seneca girls for the North Kossuth Conference championship. Ledyard Hopes Dashed. Ledyard rooters were revived when the Ledyard boys started off the second game of the evening with a dazzling passing attack which netted them four points before Lone Rock scored. At this stage, however, the Lone Rockers pulled themselves together and with accurate shooting managed to tie the score at 4-all a few seconds before the quarter ended. The second quarter looked entirely different. The Lone -Rock boys continued their snapshooting and _piled up eight ipoints, while holding Ledyard to two points. This left Lone Rock in the lead 12-6 at the half. Ledyarders in Spurt. After the intermission 'Ledyard came back determined to win, and it soon began-to look like the Led- yarders would settle the championship then and there. At the end of the third quarter Lone Rock was leading by the narrow margin of 14-13. Ledyard hopes soared again when a free throw tied the count at 14-all Just after the last quarter started. Then, with both teams playing desperately, the lead shifted first to one team, then to the other, but finally, with only a minute to go Lone Rock scored a field goal to break a 19-19 tie. Lone Rock then held the 21-19 lead till the game ended. Ledyard-Lone Bock Tied. This leaves Ledyard and Lone Rock tied for the championship of the _North Kossuth Conference, each having eight victories and two defeats in Conference games. To decide the championship the two teams will play at Algona this week Thursday evening at 7:30.
