Bears Win Handily, 89-66, With Two Regulars Sick '^^^ Garrigan's Golden Bears took on Pocahontas Catholic here Saturday night minus a pair of starters, Kevin O'Brien and Mike Elbert, who were sick and not suited, and had no trouble at all posting a runaway 83-66 victory. Steve Wlngert, a reserve whohad counted only five points in the Bears' first three games, slammed In 16 to give big Jack Muller much of the help he needed in leading the way to the club's third win In four outings. Coach Steve McCaU's outfit, which opened the season with three straight road trips, met Emmetsburg Catholir here last night In the second straight home appearance before traveling to Ft. Dodge and a meeting with St. Edmond Thursday night. The Pocahontas club had been expected to give the locals more trouble than It did as the Bears were off and running after taking an 8-5 lead In the first four minutes. With Wlngert leading the way, the lead went to 19-12 at the end of the quarter. Catholic lost Its talltst man, and one of its most highly-rated performers when Jim Strathman injured an ankle going for a rebound during the early going. As a result, Garrigan controlled the boards. Garrigan got hot In the second round, scoring 30 points as Jim Fickbohm slapped In five fielders, Muller notched nine points and Wlngert seven, while the visitors could manage only 13 points - so the Bears reached the Intermission with an Insurmountable 49-25 bulge. Muller and Wlngert, who came out of the fray as the leading rebounders, captured 22 between them during the first 16 minutes of action. McCall, who substituted freely all night, used three reserves during the third period as the onslaught continued. When the teams rounded the turn into the final stretch, the Bears held the upper hand, 73-41. It was reserves practically all the way for Garrigan during the final stanza as the foul toll continued to mount. Thirty of the 56 fouls whistled were called on the Bears. One Bear and three Pocahontas players left the battle Via fouls. Muller who Is average 22points per game, lilt well from the baselines and wound up with 21 points to lead the Bears In scoring. Wln- gert flipped In 16 for runner-up honors, while Fickbohm got 12 and Jim Walker 10. Mike Browned canned 23 for Pocahontas, the club's only double-figure scorer. The Bears held the upper hand In rebounds, nabbing 55 to 29 for the visitors, with Muller grabbing 19 and Wlngert 12, while Rhodes topped the visitors with eight. Garrigan led In steals, 10-9, with Wlngert getting three and Muller knocked down a shot. Twenty-two players saw action for the two clubs — and 20 got into the scoring column.

The win was the third in four games for the charges of Coach Dick Walsh.

The meet was dandy all the way, with Larry Taylor getting Algona's only fall, while Bird, Camp, Hunt and Bruce Bennett got decisions and Steve Claude a drav/. A sad note followed the meet as the father of Mike Oberman, Humboldt 145-pounder, died after sustaining a heart attack while leaving the gym. Algona's junior varsity handily won the curtain-raiser, 33-13, as Ferris Fett, Les Simpson, and Al Aldrich got falls, Mike Putney, Tom Laing, Jerry Simpson, Steve Wlllrett, Pat Elbert and Eldon Meyer registering decisions. Four Garrigan High School seniors, all leaders at various times as the Golden Bears chalked up a good 5-4 record during the 1967 football season, were named to the Sioux City All-Diocesan team this week. Two, Jack Muller and Dave McCarthy, were first team choices, while Mike Schiltz and Jerry Plathe were placed on the second team. Sioux City Heelan had six men on the first team and three on the second to dominate the polling. Carroll Keumper placed three on the first team and three more on the second. Muller was a fullback, Schiltz a halfback, McCarthy an end and Plathe a guard for Coach Beanie Cooper during the season. Jack ran for 884 yards In 175 attempts (about 22 carries per game) for a 5.1 average, while Schiltz raced for 594 yards In 120 attempts, an average of 4.9 per try. McCarthy was a slam-bang performer for the Bears, as was Plathe. Both seemed to enjoy knocking down the opposition.

Jerry Nerem added nine and Bob Blerle eight. Mueller also nabbed nine rebounds. Mike Nichols counted 23 points, Greg Thiel 19 and Dennis Montgomery 10 for the losers. Sentral's girls, under Coach Don Blanchard, opened the even- Ing successfully with a thrilling 83-71 victory which was nip-and- tuck all the way. The victory was the eighth in nine outings. Lincoln-Central got away to a 19-16 lead in the first period and Sentral led, 49-44, at halftime. Sentral was on top, 62-57, at the three-quarter mark. Teresa Voigt led the scoring for Sentral with 34 points, while Betty Wehrspan counted 27 and Cindy Lockwood 22. Susan Holl slammed In 45 for the losers. Taylor Fires Away KEN MARLOW Sentral High School's basketball team shattered the team scoring record and Ken Marlow set a new Individual standard during a 106-66 rampage victory over Lincoln-Central at Gruver Friday night. The game marked the third time In seven straight wins without defeat this season the Satellites have surpassed the 100- polnt mark. Marlow counted 35 points during the second half and wound up with 51 points while leading the club to a comeback win. He hit 21 of 35 shots from the field, 60 percent, and nine of 14 free tosses on the way to the mark and now has a 22-point-per-game average through seven frays. He also led the club in rebounds with 14. Coach Bert Hanson's club didn't take over until the second half, trailing 25-23, at the quarter and 39-38 at the Intermission. From then on, however, the picture changed rapidly and with Marlow flipping in points like mad, the Sentral club was on top, 64-49, at the three-quarter mark before fashioning the 40-point win. And, making up 41 points in 16 minutes is quite a fete. The team hit 45 of 81 shots for a 55 percent mark as Owen Kerber, 19 points, and Howie - o - Sentral box scores: Girls (83) Wehrspan Voigt Lockwood Blanchard Ditsworth Geitzenauer Boys (106) Nerem Mueller Marlow Geitzenauer Kerber Bierle Kennedy Jentz Duncan FG 10 8 9 0 0 0 27 FG 4 6 21 0 9 4 1 0 0 FT 7-10 18-20 4-6 0-0 0-0 0-0 29-36 FT 1-3 2-4 9-14 3-3 1-3 0-1 0-0 0-0 0-0 F 3 4 3 3 2 3 18 F 2 3 3 4 3 2 0 1 1 45 16-28 19 Craig Taylor's rebounding has been a big help to the Algona Bulldogs all season (when a bad leg has not kept him out of action). Friday's fray against Hampton here, which resulted in an easy, 72-51, victory for the locals, proved to be no exception. Taylor and Denny Richter led the team in rebounding with 11 grabs each during the North Central Conference get-together. Craig is shown here about to launch a field goal attempt during the game. Dale Pederson led the locals in scoring with 19 points, while Rich Black (No. 12 in the photo) canned 14 and Mike Betts 10. The victory was the fifth in six starts for Coach Howie Stephenson's club and set up a big contest with unbeaten Clear Lake here Friday night. (Dave Riley Photo) Bulldogs Bop Hampton, 72-51; Clear Lake - Big One Is Next Junior Lethargic at times, Algona's Bulldogs sparkled brilliantly at others as they pounded Hampton's winless club in a North Central Conference contest here Friday night. The 72-51 victory allowed the charges of Coach Howie Stephenson to up their season record to 5-1 and loop mark to 3-1, good for a .second place tie at this juncture in the season. The locals will have to be at their best .this Friday night. That's when the high-flying, undefeated (through Friday action) Clear Lake Lions cruise into town for a very important duel. Clear Lake, led by the Grabinski brothers, Ken and Steve, hammered Clarion, 92-61, Friday and took over the top spot in the loop with a 3-0 record and a &-0 season mark. All early reports indicate they're great - and, of course, the Lions and Algona have battled It out for crowns practically every year recently. It is a must game for the' Bulldogs. Coach Stephenson told this writer, minutes prior to the opening whistle, that he was afraid his club was not up for Hampton. At the start, it appeared his forecast was perfect. However, the locals righted themselves and during the second and third periods (third .especially) completely outclassed the visitors to put the game out of reach. It took almost a minute and a half for the first points to go on the board. Dale Pederson canned one, then Hampton tied it at 2-2 before the Bulldogs began to pull away slowly. With Pete getting six points and Denny Richter and Rog Meyer four each, Algona moved to a 14-8 edge at the quarter. Mike Betts and 'Tom Jones came on the scene at the start of the second round-and joined with Pederson to lead a spurt that was to put the game out of reach by halftime. Betts whipped in six points, Jones five and Pete four as the lead went to 33-18 at the intermission. The work of Craig Taylor under the boards (he came up with six rebounds) was also a big help. Stephenson got some sort of message across to his charges during the rest period, and his 'iclub came out and chewed up ^Hampton the rest of the way — iintil reserves took over and ' •played much of the last eight min• utes. The third stanza and the first minute of the fourth were really ' something! Black and Pederson took care of most of the scoring during that stretch and joined with Taylor to come up with a batch of steals that set up easy buckets. Richter and Jones were ferocious under the boards, and their rebounds set up other scores. During the third period, Black canned five buckets and Pederson added seven points to the total as the score shot to 55-26. When the lead got to 61-26 (35 points) right after the start of the last quarter the reserves took over- and a pair of fielders by Smokey Barr proved to be the most sensational shots of the night. Both were fired in as he zoomed under the basket full blast into a lot of traffic. Hampton closed the gap, but facing the 35-point deficit, had no chance of pulling the game out. Pederson was top scorer for the third straight game, nn*«*-'- Box score: ALGONA (72) Richter Meyer Taylor Black Pederson Betts Jones Barr Rogert Voyles Allen Smith FG 2 2 1 7 9 5 3 2 0 0 1 P FT 0-2 4-4 0-3 0-0 1-2 0-0 1-1 0-0 1-1 0-0 0-0 1-2 F 4 0 1 3 3 2 2 1 1 1 2 2 32 &-15 22 HAMPTON (51) Porter Barkmeier Wlnslow Heilskov Mejia Sogard Lukensmeyer Fowler Aaron Borcherding Van Kleeck FG 9 1 1 2 0 2 0 1 1 1 0 FT 1-5 1-3 0-0 1-1 1-1 4-5 0-3 0-0 3-5 0-1 2-4 F 3 0 2 1 0 2 1 0 2 0 0 19 13-28 11 19 points and upping his season average to 14.2. Black was next with 14 and Betts, in a reserve role, pumped home 10, his best night so far. Tom Porter led the losers with 19 points. One of Hampton's'19 field goals during the night (Algona got 32) was an unintentional tip-in by Richter who was battling for the ball at the time. A 56-34 rebounding bulge was built by the efforts of Richter and Taylor with 11 each, Meyer with nine and Pederson with six. Black got seven of Algona's 17 steals and Richter, who turned in his best game, blocked three Hampton shots, all In the first period. Wlnslow and Porter were Hampton's best rebounders, with nine and eight, respectively. Hampton managed only four steals, but blocked five Algona shots.
