Garrigan posts 77-69 victory 51 fouls in rough game at Ft. Dodge » Garrigan's surprising Bears, certainly the "surprise team" of the year in this area, won another one last Wednesday night as the Bears handed. St. Edmond's a 77-69 defeat in the Gael gym in a foul- plagued game. Coach Steve McCall't team will meet Forest City here Wednesday night of thit week in the first half of a doubleheader in the Bear gym and will then be idle until journeying to Pocahontas Friday night, Jan. 5. A total of 51 fouls were whistled in the game but only one Bear, "Peanuts" Elbert, fouled out for Garrigan. St. Edmond's lost four players, three of them starters. Surprisingly, Dave McCarthy, who picks up fouls as fast as kids eat Christmas cookies, had only one. Both clubs used half-court presses and many of the fouls came about on the "two-man traps" that both employed. There were 76 free throws tossed at the hoop with Garrigan hitting 23 of 40 and the Gaels 25 of 36. Garrigan led most of the game, although it had a slim 36-35 halftime margin. The Bears appeared to have the game iced with three minutes left and a 70-57 lead. But the Gaels rattled off 10 straight points to make it 70-67 but four straight free throws by Elbert and Kevin OTJrien in the closing stretch clinched the win. The Bear press was devastating at times, particularly early in the fourth period when repeated turnovers gave them a 66-53 lead. St. Edmond's had one of its rare leads shortly before the half until a three-point play put the Bears in front 36-35 at the halfway point. MCCARTHY'S three-pointer gave Garrigan a 44-40 lead midway in the third period and the Bears were off and running. They never trailed after that. St. Ed's enjoyed a 9-4 lead in the early moments before big Jack Muller and Jim Walker combined to put the Bears in front 16-11 at the quarter mark. Pacing the Bear attack was Muller with 20 points including nine of 15 from the field. McCarthy finished with his best scoring night of his career with 16 while Walker bagged 13. The Bear Sophs also turned in their fifth win in six starts as they edged the Gaels in the opener, 56-54. Gary Cooper, son of Coach Beanie Cooper, was the game hero as he tossed home the winning basket in the final seconds of the game. Denny Potthoff led all Garrigan scorers with 19 points. Others: Cooper 14, Besch 10, Black 5, Froehlich 4, Kenyon 3 and Kajewski 2. ST. CDMOND — un Bird Birrttt ...
