Ironically, the nine-point victory was exactly the same as their district foe, Algona high school, turned in over the Little Midgets the night of Jan. 29. That game ended 52-43. But although r the nine point spread was the same, the games were different. The Bulldogs dominated Estherville in the first, half, 31-20 and then had to stave off the visitors in the final two quarters. SATURDAY NIGHT,' Garrigan did the opposite. It played horribly in the first 16 minutes — rebounded poorly, shot ineffectively and generally, conducted itself as anything but a 13-3 club. The Bears trailed 18-14 at the quarter and only three straight baskets by junior Bill Reding at the end of the quarter kept the a drive shot and free 'throw. < GAUIIIGAN HELD ESTHERVILLE SCORELESS IN THE FINAL 4:31 MINUTES OF PLAY. The visitors "choked" under the relentless pressure of the Garrigan press. They missed four one-and-one situations near the end and couldn't buy a basket when they needed one so badly. - A out considerably.

Iris Michaelson led the winners with 43 points while Jane Hanselman had 24 for the losers. Lu Verne ended with a 6-9 record while Titonka was after the gauie. Don Potthoff and Reding scored all but four of Garrigan's 14 second quarter points and with Estherville's fine forward Roger Guge sparking his team, the visitors led 42-28 at the half. COACH STEVE McCALL sent his team into a half-court zone press in the second half, This is the devastating defense that has won games for him the past two years and it was the key to the win Saturday. With guards Dick Bleich and Bob Smith hawking the ball and Brian LaBarre, Reding and Potthoff applying further pressure downcourt, Garrigan took off midway in the third quarter with Estherville leading 49-35. After Dick. Muller's free throw, Bleich scored six straight points on two layups and a pair of free throws. LaBarre canned a free throw and Clint Youngwirth added a jump shot. In the three- minute span, Garrigan outscored Estherville 10-0 and was back in the game. The visitors stretched their margin to 52-45 at the finish of the period but Garrigan stayed close. Potthoff hit three straight "cripples" when his mates found him alone under the basket. He notched a fourth basket with a short shot and it was 58-53 in favor of Estherville. REDING sandwiched a Potthoff three-pointer with two baskets and the game was tied at 60-all with 3:15 left. Then junior LaBarre took over. He scored the final nine Garrigan points, first on two jumpers, then on a s wither from thf sidt tnd finally on McCall, undoubtedly rather have saved his half- court zone defense, although it will be no surprise to Coach Stephenson and his Bulldogs, until the big district clash here Feb. 28. But he needed a lift for his team and it worked fantastically well. • Certainly, Reding and Potthoff were among the top heroes in this win but you can't forget LaBarre and Bleich either. The lat-~ ter two provided some crucial baskets when needed in the second half. LaBarre scored nine of his ten points in the final 3:28 of play. And Bleieh's six straight points in the third quarter ignited, the flurry that brought the win. Reding finished with 20 am Potthoff was close behind with 19. The big scoring Dick Muller was held to just six points and played less than half the game. Guge and Al Bolte paced the Midgets with 19 each. The Estherville junior varsity won the opener 65-55. Kevin O'Brien hit 15 points while Jim Walker tapped in 12 and Tom Black 10. The Bear yearlings are now 9-4 for the season.
