EXTRA EDITION COUNTY BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT EDITION Extra Edition ALGOXA, IOWA, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 26,1934 Price 2c ALGONA, LEDYARD WINNERS IN COUNTY CA6E CLASSIC WESLEY UNABLE TO HOLD SHARP SHOOTERSQUAD North End Team Annexes County Class B Title, 35 to 23 LARGE CROWDS FOLLOW QUINTS Wesley, winner of the class B championship In 1933, passed that basketball honor along to Ledyard high's snappy team, Saturday even- Ing. The ft™*! score was 35 to 23. Large crowds o£ supporting fans were on hand for both teams. Each team had worked Its way to the county finals, and this contest was looked forward to by hundreds, as It brought together two of the nicest working class B aggregations In the northern part of the state. dchua&n Heavy Scorer Hie first quarter of play found the two teams playing even ball. Wesley was rushing the ball down the floor, and Its superior height gave the orange Jersies a goodly number of chances at the net; Ledyard, however, played a more deliberate game, working the ball Into scoring territory with a beautiful passing attack, and then trying for the hoop at an opportune moment. Thompson scored first, followed a moment later by Erdmann of Wesley. Erdmann put his team Into the lead with another field goal, but Thompson evened matter with a short shot, and tallied again with a beautiful long shot, which never touched the rim of the basket. Thompson bad bis shooting eye along, and no mistake, and even the persistent kidding of certain sections of the crowd about his red hair failed to disturb him in the least Hauptmann tied the score at 6 an. but Thompson and Brandt swooped In a pair to put Ledyard •gain in the lead, as Wesley took time out Erdmann's sleeper shot ended the period. WeCeyMisflCs Shtfte Warner scored to open the second period, and Thompson put in two more. Thia period found the Ledyard offense beginning to function, and at half time the north end team was leading, 22 to 10. The Ledyard defense was weak at times but inability of Wesley to sink their snots hurt The third period was Ledyard's, as Lamitzen's segregation taHled 10 points to Wesley* 5. Toward the finish of the contest Erdmanp warmed up again, and sank three in a row with some fine shooting, but Wesley was too far behind to catch up. Mention should be made of the (Continued on Btc* Fftfti Three Fires Hit Algona as Cold Wave Descends A wintry wave of weather which swooped down over Kossuth county.

The score was 37 to 23. The victory of Algona will by no means settle the question of which team is the best, as Swea City had defeated Algona on two previous occasions this season. But Saturday night the Bulldogs seemed to hold a slight margin In the pinches, although in the closing minutes of the fray, when Sellstrom and Shackleford. star Algona guards, were both ousted on personal fouls, things looked dark for Algona. The loss of Krunun, star Swe» City center. also weakened the Swea Cityans la the closing seconds of play. Get Early Lead Algona led at the end of the first quarter. 10 to 3. The score at th« half was 17 to 7. and Algona had held a firm margin throughout. But in the second half bhe visitors began to click, with Fults and Krunun both tallying. Bob Post of Algona, however, who has not been a starting regular in all of Algona's game*, had an eagle eye on the hoop, and tallied twice with pretty tosses to even the scoring' for tfie brief spurt of both teams. Cretzmeyer and Krumm both missed free throw* from a double foul, but Smith sank a free throw. Krumm sailed in for a short shot, and Post followed a moment later bv batting In a rebound.
