'-"!••'* 11 8"Atfl6fla (la.) Upper Des Moines Thursday, Feb. is, Drop 54-46 Game; Readying For Bulldogs Garrigan's Golden Bears ra into a hustling group of St. Ed Ihond Gaels at Fort Dodge Frida night and came out on the shor end of a 54-46 decision before large crowd. The loss wound u their regular season for Coac Leon Venn's crew and gave th Bears a 14-5 won-lost mark. The season is far from finished however. The Bears began pre paring this week for their bi meeting Feb. 28 with Altfon high school's Bulldogs who drop ped a 59-52 verdict to Clarion Friday night after posting 1 straight wins. Plan For A.H.S. Coach Venn's strategy for th Algona game won't be known definitely until game time. As many fans see it, the Bears have the edge offensively and the Bulldogs have a defensive edge, based on the season's play. The Bears have topped 80 points three times during the season, while the Bulldogs have gotten past the 70 mark three times. Garrigan has scored a total of 1288 points for a 67.8 offensive average while all opponents have combined to score a total 1088 points, a 57.3 defensive average (or the Bears. On the other hand, the public school crew has scored 1044 points, a 58 point average, while limiting opponents to 894 points, a 49.7 defensive mark. Based on offensive and defen sive marks alone, the Bears hole a 2.2 point edge right now. Froehlich Doubiful The Bears have three big scor ing guns, Lyle Loebach, Bob Goecke and Dick Heinen to throw at the Bulldogs. Loebach also the team's top rebounder has meshed 272 points for a 14.S average, Goecke has hit 245 points for a 12.8 average and Heinen has 200 points and a 10.5 average for the season. They will probably be without the services of their terrific outshooter, Oscar Froehlich, who has seen no action since suffering a badly sprained ankle and bone chip in the Garrigan-Holy Family game at Mason City Feb. 4. Froehlich had counted 205 points and posted a 12.8 average before his injury. , The Bulldogs, who have featured five-man balance in scoring to date, will have to contain the efforts of Loebach, Goecke and Heinen to win. Gaels Hijslle ; The Bears were not sharp against St. Edmond, however the home club wanted the win badly and the hepped-up, play of the Gaels may have dimmed the play of.the Bears, somewhat. Garrigan was never out of the game until the final buzzer sounded. The teams didn't hit well during the first eight minutes, but a couple of buckets by Mike Cink gave the Bears a 7-6 lead, by the end of the first period. The shooting of Reis and Haverkamp of the Gaels offset the efforts of Goecke, Loebach and Cink of the Bears during the second stanza and St. Edmond wound up with a 26-22 halftime edge. St. Edmond shot the margin to 10 points midway in the third period, but the Bears came back to chop the edge to 45-38 with eight minutes of play remaining Comeback Thwarted The Bears comeback attempt was climaxed early in the final quarter when a couple of buc- cets by Loebach cut the St. Edmond advantage to 47-44, How ever, the home club, using the coring of Kemp and Haverkamp grabed a 54-46 lead with two minutes left and stalled out the emaining time. Loebach, who accounted for 1] oints in the last half, wound up s Garrigan's top point producer with 15. Cink who has been starting since Froehlich got injured, tossed in 13 and Goecke got 10. Top man for the winners was Reis with 14. Lawler got 12 and Tracy 10 for the Gaels. Goecke, Heinen and Loebach shared rebounding efforts for the Bears. The Bears were kept in trouble Garrigan's Fresh-Soph quinte dropped a 70-34 decision to the St. Edmond crew in the curtain raiser. Hansard led the winner With 28 points, including 25 in the first half, which found the homo club on top 34-14. LeRoy Heinen led Garrigan with 11 points.
