6—Algeria (la.) Uppftr DM Moln*i Tuesday, March 9, 1965 AHS 49, GHS 40 IN BIG STRUGGLE! Teeter's Free Throws Settle It, Last Half Dale Teetpf, who as a sophomore a year ago burst into stardom In District and Sub-Stato Tournampnt play, leading Alpona high to a State Tournampnt berth, proved equal (and then some) to thp pressure Saturday night as lie led the Bulldogr- to n thrilling 49-40 victory overGar- rigan's Golden Bears - giving Coach Howie Strphenson's charges the District title and pushing the locals oner again into Sub- State action. Saturday's win before a sellout crowd atGarriganFleldhouse set up a meeting of the Bulldogs and Storm Lake's fine team In the first round of Sub-State play at Spencer tonight (Tuesday). Storm Lake up-ended Sac City 70-63 Saturday night at Odebolt to advance. The Bulldogs and Bears had a heck of a time hitting field goals, due to the finest defensive play seen here all year and nervousness on the part of all players. Coach Steve McCall's Bears canned 13 field goals and the Bulldogs hit just 11 as last-half free-throwing, especially by Teeter, gave the verdict to the public high school. Down the stretch, it was Teeter, one of two tourney vets in the contest (teammate Steve Hardy was the other), who salted the win with a 11-for-ll performance from the free throw line in the final 16 minutes. Joe Rlngsdorf, Garrigan junior, held Dale to just three points In the first half - finest defensive effort against Teeter this season - but when fouls got Joe in trouble during the third stanza, the Bulldog scoring ace came back to get a very vital 15 points (with only two fielders included) to pace the win. From the start It was apparent the game would be cozy. Cheerleaders from the two itfMools had students worked into a fine They Carried The Colors in 1932 *T i f ^ i a £ «/ * <Jf I" pitch for 40 minutes before the postponed game's opening tip- off - and the pace was torrid (even If the shooting from the field wasn't) for all 32 minutes. When Jerry Bradley of the Bears hit the first field goal of the contest, he gave Garrigan a lead that went down the drain when Craig Espe of AHS hit a fielder and fre» throw,to put the Bulldogs on top 4-3. Chuck Becker hit a fielder and Don Potthoff a free throw, putting Garrigan on top 6-4 with four minutes gone, but Dan Merryman Teeter and Hardy got the points that gave Algona a 9 -1 lead moments later. It was 9-9 at the quarter buzzer - and each team had three field goals and three free tosses. When Algona's Al Prlebe picked up his thrid foul early in the secondperiod, Dave Walker came in and led a surge that saw the Bulldogs hold the upper hand by four points three times. Walker and Hardy split Algona's four field goals and Dave teamed with Teeter to control the boards. The Bears knotted the count at Here's another look into the past, via an old photo which recently showed up during a clean-up campaign in the back shop of the UDM. Last week's band photo resulted in all kinds of comment - and this picture of the 1932 Algona high school basketball team is sure to do the same. Shown, left to right, are Coach Aubrey Bonham, Howard Nordstrom, John Hargreaves, Chuck Cretzmeyer, Bob Williams, John Shilts, Dick Post, Paul Black, Nanny Bruns, Carl Medin, Bob Spencer, Bob Sellstrom and Russ Medin. Seated is Bill Spencer, manager. Nordstrom is an uncle of Algona's current scoring ace, Dale Teeter, Hargreaves has a sister, Mrs. Ralph Elbert, living here, Williams owns the Hub Clothiers, Post operates a trucking firm and Russ Medin is manager of Consolidated Coop Creameries at Whittemore. At least two of the squad members are deceased. Sellstrom died while serving as a U. S. Navy pilot during World War II and Bruns succumbed to a heart attack several years ago. Remaining members make their homes in scattered sections of the United States. One thing noticed right off the bat was the fact the team's won-lost record is not painted on the basketball held by the manager. It might be interesting to know how the team fared that winter. upped the count to 31-22, only the efforts of Dick Muller and Bill Reding, GHS sophs, Becker and Dick Bleich, kept the game from becoming a run-away. This quarter led to a surge that cut the Algona lead to 35-31 with eight minutes remaining. A quickbasketpushedGarrigan within two points, 33-33 - and the Bulldogs led by 37-35 and 39-37 with eight minutes remaining. A quickbasketpushedGarrigan within two points, 35-33 - and the Bulldogs led by 37-35 before using the free throw line to fashion a lead that was to stand to the end. When the count got to 43-38, Ringsdorf and Bleich were on the sidelines with five fouls each when Coach Stephenson had his club go Into a stall offense. There were four minutes left - and when the Bears were forced to foul in an attempt to get the ball, too often the offended player was Teeter, who calmly stepped to the line to hit six straight to preserve the win. Walker got the final four points with a pair of all-alone lay-ups - and nearly dunked the final one just seconds before the end. The Bulldogs, percentage- wise, out-shot the Bears from the field canning 11 of only 36 shots for 31 percent, while Garrigan hit 13 of 63 for 21 percent and tough defense, featuring plenty of flailing hands and arms, had to be the reason for the low output, because the clubs were both hot from the free throw line, AHS hitting 27 of 36 for 75 percent and GHS getting 14 or 20 for 70 percent in the game. Prlebe blocked three shots, Teeter two and Potthoff one in the franctlc play under the boards. A 33-22 rebounding bulge was held by the Bulldogs, with Teeter glommlng 12, Merryman six and Priebe five, while Potthoff and Becker got four each and Muller and Jim Youngwirth three each for the Bears. Both clubs lost the ball numerous times on a variation of violations as Algona evened play be- between the two schools, 2-2 Espe and Tom Claude, Algona's little guards, each came up with vital rebounds down the stretch. Garrigan finished the season with a 10-12 mark, while the Bulldogs moved on with a 129 mark, Including the last four in a row. 13-13 and 15-15 and trailed 2219 at halftlme despite fielders by Bradley and Ringsdorf and three free throws by Chuck Becker, Bear senior who turned In another fine all-around Job. Every died-ln-the-wool fan in the place knew the teams had to loosen up and hit shots during the second naif - out there was little change, in fact the teams combined for only 11 last half field goals, after hitting 13 in the first 16 minutes. Early fouls by the Bears in the third quarter gave the Bull"' dogs a chance to, build a 26^9 lead - and after the Bulldogs Globetrotters Here Saturday Box score: Algona (49) Merryman Teeter Prlebe Espe Hardy Claude Walker Garrigan (40) Becker Ringsdorf Potthoff Bleich Reding Muller Bradley Smith Youngwirth FG 1 3 0 1 2 0 4 FT 5-6 12-13 2-3 3-5 3-6 2-3 0-0 F 3 1 5 3 3 3 0 11 27-36 18 FG 2 1 2 1 2 2 3 0 0 13 FT 3-5 0-0 4-4 1-2 2-2 4-5 0-0 0-1 0-1 F 3 5 4 5 1 1 1 2 2 14-20 24 Skilled artisans of several professions will present their wares for the edification and delight of 'the assembled onlookers at Garrigan High School Gym, Algona, Iowa on Saturday, March 13th, when the great Harlem Globetrotters of basketball headline a huge program starting at 8:00 P.M.
