Dodge to a 54-48 victory over Garrigan's Golden Bears before a large crowd in the season opener at the Garrigan gym Saturday night. The Bears will host Pocahontas Calholic here Friday night, then' will travel to Bancroft for a meeting with St. John's Ihe following evening. The Garrigan-St. Edmond game started slowly, with the teams unable to hit the basket with regularity. St. Edmond held a 4-2 lead at the end of four minutes. After a time out at- which lime Bob Goecke was inserted into the Garrigan lineup, t^ie Bears really started to roll. They canned eight points in the 'n'exv' two .minutes and held a 10-7 lead. By the end of the quarter, with Goecke and Mike Cink punching home most of the points, the Bears were in front 16-12 and looking good. Garrigan maintained its lead until late in the second period. The scoring pace cooled and the teams were tied at 24-24 at halftime. Besides the shooting of Goecke and Cink, outstanding factor in favor of the Bears was the ability of Lyle Loebach, Cink, Steve Smith and Leroy Heinen to out-rebound Dan Hansard, 69 St. Edmond center, who failed to get off the floor during the first 16 minutes of play. Cink got hot in the third period, and after leading the Bears to a 30-26 edge in the first two minutes, managed to keep the locals in front 38-36 at the three- quarter mark. The teams were tied at 40-40, and 48-48 in the final round before St. Edmond, with Hansard and Tracy leading the way, got the last three buckets ' of the night'to take the win. Free throtying did not enter into the final outcome. Both teams were cold from the charity line, with Garrigan hitting only four, of 14 and St. Edmond'man- aging to count only six of 21. Shooting from the floor, both teams hit well at times, then experienced cold streaks. -The ball handling and defensive play was good, and the rebounding of both clubs proved to be adequate. Cink and Goecke of the Bears and Tracy of the Gaels led the scorers in the game with 14 points each. Goecke played only part time and had to sit out part of the game when he re-injured a knee. Hansard got 12 points/ including eight in the final period, and Lawler got 10 points for the visitors, while Loebach got nine and John Fandel seven for the Bears. .
