J' • Bears Belt Emmetsburg Catholic For 3 In Row Garrigan's Golden Bears completely dominated play as they raced to an easy 79-40 win ovu'i Emmetsburg' Cutnolic al Em- mclsburg Wednesday night, Dec. 21. Ry racking up their third straight victory, Coach Leon Vann's club ran its season mark to 4-2. The Bears, who are holding intermittent practice sessions and scrimmages during the holiday break, will have lo have iheir shooting arms well oiled and Iheir re- bounders really jumping when Ihey get back into regular season play after the first of the year. First competition for the locals will come when St. Edmond of Fort Dodge, one of ihe iop teams in Ihe area, moves into ihe Gairigan gym for a fray Saturday night, Jan. 7. On a comparative score basis, ihe edge would go lo St. Edmond when Carroll Kuompor is used as a common foe, while Garrigan must be the choice when Holy Farvnly of Mason City is considered. Kuemper downed both ball clubs early in the season, beating Garrigan 56-50 and St. Edmond by two points. Holy Family downed St. Edmond, while the Bears beat the Mason City entry by 14 points. So it looks like a toss-up. Everything went right for the Bears m thc first penod of tne game at Emmetsburg. The Vann- Jiien ran patterns like they moanl il, hit shots from several distances regularly and rebounded efficiently to run up a 21-7 lead in the first eight minutes. Reserves, who got to see plenty of action during tne second and fourth periods of the game, moved into prominence as the locals built a 34-16 halftime cushion. Vann used 10 men during the first half and 12 in the final 10 minutes. With thc first unit back at ihe ftarl of the final half, the Bears rolled well again, pushing the lead to 54-31 at the three-quarter mark. The onslaught dicln' let up much during the final round as the Bears managed to oulscore the home club, 25-9, (o win go- ing'away. All three of. (lie ,big men were '.instrumental in the win. Bob Goecke led the rebounding with 18 grabs under the boards. He also tossed in 12 points. .Lyle Loebach got 13 rebounds and tied for high score honors with Oscar Froohlich at J6. Dick Heinen got nine rebounds and the same number of points. All in all, nine Bears got into the scoring column. Top .shooter for Emmetsburg Catholic' was 1 Moliy with 12 points, while Foy came up with 10. The Bears were extremely hot, hilling 33 of 73 field goal attempts fpr a nifty 42.3 percent, while Catholic hit 14 of 56 for 25 "percent. Thc Bears grabbed. 65 rebounds while the home team got only 21. Neither team was very effective, .from the free throw ]inc, Kilting a combined total of 23 out of 56 tries.
