Bears Rally For Win Here Saturday; Record Now 4-1 Garrigan's Golden Bears, wh suffered their first defeat of the season a night earlier, had a tough time the first 12 minutes, but came back in the last 2 1/2 quarters with a spirited rally that allowed them to post a 62-54 win over a good Pocahontas Catholic team here Saturday night. The comeback had to be good, because the locals trailed by 29-16 when they got in gear. Coach Steve McCall's club, now 4-1 for the season, meet St. Edmond at Ft. Dodge Friday night, then host Gilbertville Don Bosco here Sunday before hitting Ihe holiday break. Bill Reding and Bob Smith engineered Garrigan's first real show of strength in the second period after the Eagles had roared to that 29-1G bulge. The visitors ran and shot from the hip (or anyplace else) to take an early lead that went to 18-10 at the end of the first period. Don Potthoff got most of Garrigan's rebounds during the early battling, but too many times the locals allowed butterfingers to interfere and the ball squirted out of bounds. The Eagles' onslaught continued through the first four minutes of the second quarter, and with Hudek, Groff and Amick hitting the points, had no trouble keeping a comfortable lead. Suddenly, and without advance notice, Smith and Reding began coming up with interceptions. Four straight times, they got the ball from Catholic guards - and eight points went up for the locals in about 40 seconds. That made it 29-24 and by halftime it was 36-31 In favor of the Eagles. Dick Muller, who had trouble under the boards in the first half, came to life with a bang at the start of the second and began hogging the rebounds, with the net result that Garrigan kept moving. He didn't get any third quarter points, Don Potthoff, Reding, Smith, Brian LaBarre and Dick Bleich took care of that as the Bears gradually caught up and finally went ahead at 47-46 on a lay-up by Smith just before the buzzer. The Bears were ahead to stay as Potthoff, Muller, Smith and LaBarre got hot and ran the count to 56-47 with about four minutes left. The teams played about even from then on as the locals stitched up the win. The Bears, colder than a.well digger's shovel the first half, hit well the second - and the Eagles, hotter than a tin roof in August the first half, were very cold the final 16 minutes. Garrigan held a 39-36 edge in rebounds, an 8-6 margin in steals and each team blocked one shot during the fray. Potthoff got 14 rebounds and Muller 10 for the Bears, while Amiok got 11 and Rhodes 10 for the losers. Smith and Reding each got three steals for the locals, while Amick and Hudek each got a pair for Catholic. Muller wound up with 15 points to lead the Bears, while Reding got 13, Potthoff 11 and Smith 1,0. Groff got 20, Amick 17 and Hudek 14 (all in the first half) for the Eagles.
