GHSCYO Bid Halted In Overtime Fourth Period Freeze Is Costly To Bulldogs 40-Foot Gives Victory To Heelan An almost impossible 40-foot shot that swished through the net as the buzzer sounded gave Sioux City Heelan a 56-54 overtime victory over Garrigan's upset-minded Golden Bears-and the class AA Sioux City CYO championship Sunday night. The shot that brought pandemonium to the Sioux City Auditorium was fired by Terry Goertsch, a lad that had scored just four other points in the 35 minutes of frantic action. The shot also gave victory to a club that held leads up to 12 points over the Bears - and over a team that had not held the lead all night until about two minutes of play remained in regulation time. The comeback and near- victory proved the Bears have plenty of gumption. Garrigan's loss cut a string of 10 straight victories and gave Coach Steve McCall's surprising club an 11-2 mark for the season to date. At times, it appeared the Crusaders would run the Bears out the front door. But the Bears, whose top scorer this season, Jack Muller, with a 19.3 average going into this game, was held at bay much of the time, got enough points from other sources to make a real contest of the finale. Heelen held leads of 7-0, 9-3, 9-7 and 13-7 on the way to a big 15-8 bulge after eight minutes and the lead went to 27-17 late in the first half before Garrigan came up with four late points to make it 27-21 at rest time. After the Bears pulled a comeback, led by Muller, Dave McCarthy and John Winkel (whose work as a reserve was great), and cut the lead to 29-28 with about 21/2 minutes gone in the third round, Crusader shotters warmed up and the Scoreboard showed Heelan on top, 46-34, with 19 seconds left. A Garrigan bucket was followed by one from the middle of the court by Winkel-and it was 46-38 with eight minutes left in the fray. It was 47-40 when Winkel hit a fielder and Kevin O'Brien a pair of free throws to make it 47-44. It went to 48-44 but McCarthy canned a two-pointer before another Heelan basket ran the count to 50-46. O'Brien then hit and Jim Walker tossed in two free throws and it was knotted at 50-50. When Muller hit a couple of free throws, the Bears had their first lead, 52-50. Rudendorf then hit for Heelan and sent the fray into overtime. O'Brien put the Bears on top, 54-52, with a basket that turned out to be their final points of the game and a pair of free throws by Heelan set up the game-winning shot by Goertsch. O'Brien and Winkel both got into double figures as Kevin canned 13 points and Winkel, who had never gotten more than eight in a game before, accounted for 12. Muller got nine and McCarthy eight, Joe Craig, who got most of his from long range, got 14 and Rick Moats 12 for the winners, who raised their season mark to 8-3, The Bears held a 22-20 edge in rebounds, with Muller, O'Brien, McCarthy and Winkel coming up with five each, and a 9-8 edge in steals, with Muller getting five.. 12-Algona (la.)

Algona High's chilly Bulldogs went entirely cold during the first six minutes of the fourth quarter and allowed Webster City to post a 63-58 win in a North Central Conference game there Saturday night. For Webster City, it marked the first basketball victory over Algona in six seasons, and while the loss was disheartening for the Bulldogs, they remained in second place behind Clear Lake with a 7-3 record. The defeat also ended a 5-game skein for Coach Howie Stephenson's team and put the season mark at 10-3. STANDINGS W L Clear Lake 9 0 ALGONA 7 3 Iowa Falls 6 3 Webster City 7 4 Humboldt 5 4 Eagle Grove 3 6 Hampton 1 9 Clarion 0 9 Actually, the difference in the teams Saturday night was Tim Shelton of the Lynx. The big guy, held without a point in the third period, counted 16 before the halftime intermission and came back to count eight more in the final stanza to stitch the win for the home club. It was a rough game, although 16 fouls on each club failed to prove the point. Assistant Coach Keith Christie of the Bulldogs hit it on the head right after the final buzzer when he said, "You had to be a man to get out there on that floor tonight." A little closer scrutiny by officials of the rebounding tactics of Shelton during the first half could have very easily given Algona the decision in this one. At least three times he came down on Algona rebounders without a whistle toot, so he lived a charmed life and remained in the fray to haunt the locals. Despite Algona's cool shooting, it was an interesting contest. The Bulldogs led only three times all night, holding a slight edge right at the start, a 15-14 edge in the second stanza and a 21-20 lead midway through the same period. Meanwhile, Webster City led 14-13 at the quarter, 33-29 at the half and was on top, 44- 40 shortly before the end of the third round. Dale Pederson hit a fielder and Rich Black calmly dropped in two free tosses to knot it at 44-44 as the third period ended-and at that moment, Algona apparently had something going. Then came the cold spell during which the Lynx piled in 17 points while Algona got six and it was 61-50 with two minutes left. Baskets by Mike Belts, SmokeyBarr and Steve Voyles and two free throws by Rod Rogert closed the gap, but not enough-and the Lynx had the win. Statistically, except in shooting, the Bulldogs more than held their own against the bigger Lynx. The locals held a 31-26 margin in rebounds, with Rog Meyer (one of the best in the loop at 6 feet) snaring 12 and Craig Taylor and Tom Jones seven apiece, compared to Shelton's 10, while a 10-4 bulge in steals was built by Jones with three and Meyer, Black and Barr with two apiece, also kept the Lynx at bay some of the time. Four or five missed lay-ups by the Bulldogs would have more than made up the final five point difference, Meyer led the scoring with 15 points, while Jones added 10 and Pederson eight. Shelton's 24 led the winners, with Biggs notching 11 and McKinney 10.

Paul Christiansen topped the scoring with 13 points, while Dean Lowman and Greg Allen each got 11, Steve Chrischilles seven, and Dave Lowman and Dale Briggs three apiece.
