Hot, Ball-Hawking Bears Clout Austin Pacelli 81-59 Bleich Tries A Lay-Up A tight defense that forced plenty of errors and "hot hands" during the first half of action led the Garrlgan Golden Bears to a lop-sided 81-59 victory over the rugged Pacelli Shamrocks before a large crowd here Friday night. The win gave Coach Steve McCalTs club a 9-1 season mark and their sixth straight victory. Garrigan will pull all stops in an effort to dump its next opponent, Mason City Newman the only team to get past the locals all season. The Mason City outfit bested the Bears, 82-71, Dec. 10, at Mason City and the return engagement is slated here this Friday night. It should be a lulu. The Bears trailed the Shamrocks early by 1-0 and 3-2 margins - and didn't get the upper hand until they banged in 11 points in two minutes late in the first quarter to lead 21-14. At the buzzer, the locals were on top, 24-17, thanks to the ball-hawking of Bob Smith, Dick Bleich and Bill Reding and the scoring of DickMuller, Don Potthoff, Reding, Brian LaBarre and Smith. Garrigan shot about 70 percent from the field and hit all six free tosses attempted during the first eight minutes. After Pacelli closed to gap 24-18 at the start of the second stanza, the Bears, with Muller and Reding shooting well, pulled out to a 34-19 bulge and the visitors made only one other threat during the rest of the fray. It was 44-29 at halftime and the locals held a 5-4 edge in steals and 19-14 margin in Alflona, (la.) Upper Det Motnet Tuetcfay, January 18, 1966 rebounds. Muller had 15 points, Reding 10 and Potthoff nine when the teams reached the intermission. Pacelli's Tom Ball had 12 and Dan Carroll had 10. Pacelli got two quick baskets to open the second half, but the Bears pressed ahead and added another point to the margin before the buzzer sounded ending the third round. Garrigan led, 58-42, with eight minutes left. Reding canned another six points during the quarter. Only the shooting of Ball kept the Shamrocks in the game during the final stanza. He came up with seven points, finished the night with 27, and led both clubs in scoring. However, it wasn't enough as the Bears showed too much balance for the visitors. McCall's stall-offense added points to the margin during the last quarter as the ball-handling of the locals set up the buckets that ran the lead to 22 points at the end. Garrigan had seven men in the scoring column, including four in double figures. Reding finished with 23, Muller 20, Smith 12 and Potthoff 11. The rebounds were pretty well spread out too, as Muller got 10, Potthoff nine and Reding eight. Thefts were chalked up by Smith, 3, Bleich and LaBarre, 2, and Potthoff, Reding, Muller, and the Joes, Ringsdorf and Becker, 1 each. Top rebounders for the losers were Carroll and Wes Halverson with seven apiece as the teams got 32 off the boards. Garrigan chalked up a dozen steals to five for the visitors and blocked shots were even at two.
