Garrigan And Garrigan's Golden Bears ran their season record to 8-1 and their current win skein to five with a pair of basketball wins during the weekend, downing Bancroft St. John's, 65-50, before a huge crowd here Saturday after besting Pocahontas Catholic there Friday, 68-58. Both wins were repeats for the Bears, who earlier this season downed the Johnnies by one point and the Eagles by eight, This Friday night, Coach Steve McCall's club will host always- tough Austin Pacelli, then the Bears hit the road to Gilberg- ville and a second meeting this season with Don Bosco the following night. Garrigan bopped Bosco, 57-42, here Dec. 19. Victory over the Johnnies Saturday came as a result of supremacy under the boards and in the important steal and interception category. The Bears also out-shot the visitors from the field and free throw line. Under the boards, Don Potthoff and Bill Reding, who proved to be the most important cog in this win, controlled things pretty well, while Dick Bleich, Potthoff, Dick Muller and Brian LaBarre came up with gobs of St. John's passes. Garrigan trailed 3-0 early in the fray as both teams missed several lay-ups due to cases of nerves. They led, 4-3, then trailed, 5-4, but it was the last time they were behind as Garrigan leads of 10-6 and 18-12 went on the Scoreboard before the Johnnies closed the gap to 18-17 at the quarter. Reding's six points and Bob Smith's four led the Bears, while, Dick Diers and Tom Murray each'got five for the visitors. Potthoff's rebounding and scoring, the steals of Bleich and the scoring of Reding and LaBarre allowed Garrigan to zip to a 35-27 halftime edge, with nine straight points soon after the start of the round giving the Bears the big push they needed. Meanwhile Diers flipped in six points to keep St. John's in the battle. Another string of nine straight points by the Bears early in the third stanza actually put the game out of reach as the lead went to 44-29. However, the Johnnies came up with six straight later, cutting the margin to 46-37, but with Potthoff and Reding hitting 15 points between them, the Bears hauled a 54-41 bulge into the final eight minutes. The teams were all even during the final quarter, with Coach McCall getting a chance to use all of his reserves.
