(la.) Upptr tu««d«y, D»c. mb «r 2t, 1965 Bears Post Two More Wins As Season Mark Hits Garrigan's Golden Bears picked up wins over St. Edmond at Ft. Dodge Friday night, 5651, and Gilbertville Don Bosco, 57-42, here Saturday night to run their season mark to 6-1 and current winning streak to three with a pair of pretty fair defensive jobs. The Bears' next outing is Jan. 7 when they travel to Pocahontas for a second meeting with a good Catholic team, which the locals downed62-54hereDec. 11. Bosco's mixed-up type of play disturbed the Bears' game plans somewhat Saturday night - but extensive use of seven reserves, with most of the regulars sitting out quite a bit of the contest, also served to keep the score down for the locals. Dick Muller, who has led the Bears in scoring the last three times out - and also the top scorer for the season through seven games - slammed in five field goals and a pair of free tosses to get the home club off to a big lead in the first period. Garrigan led, 5-0, 6-3 and 14-3 before chalking up an 18-5 bulge at the buzzer. Reserves entered the fray in the second stanza, but Don Potthoff and Dick Bleich, regulars, counted most of the points as the lead went first to 26-11, then to 29-17 at halftime. Play was erratic by both clubs, with pressing defenses responsible for numerous wild passes and interceptions of other wayward ones. Bill Reding got hot during the third round, and as a result, Garrigan upped the count to 4021 just four minutes after the intermission. It was 44-25 with eight minutes left. Thome, most efficient shooter for Bosco, led a late rally that trimmed the margin to 52-39 shortly before the end. Muller, who played about half the game, tossed in 15 points, Bleich 13, Reding 11 andPotthoff nine for the Bears, while Thome got 14, Staebell nine and Magee eight for the losers. Rebounds were 28-23 in favor of the Bears, who also held the upper hand in steals, 9-3, while Muller of the Bears and Phillips of the visitors each blocked a pair of shots. Potthoff had seven rebounds and Muller six for the Bears and Phillips nine for Bosco, while Bleich got four steals and Bob Smith three for the locals.

St. Edmond led 2-0 and 4-2 before Garrigan really moved as Muller got control of the boards. The big guy, who wound up leading both clubs in rebounds with 16, got nine in the first eight minutes. The scoring of Bob Smith, who hit three fielders, and Muller ushered the locals into a 14-8 first quarter edge and the maring, with Muller getting six points and Potthoff and LaBarre four each, was 3223 at the half. Muller and LaBarre each got four points and Muller snared five rebounds as Garrigan carried a 44-34 lead into the final stanza. It was 50-38, with Bleich and Potthoff hitting five points apiece, when the Gaels closed in with a futile late rally that chopped the margin to five points. Muller topped Garrigan with 14 points, followed by Potthoff with 11 and Bleich with nine, while Perkins tossed in 20 and Hassett 10 for the losers. Garrigan's B-team posted a 54-47 victory in the curtain- raiser as Mark Prieskorn got 22 points, Muller 14 and O'Brien 11.
