The defensive antics of Bcrru nd Sheehy, Newman guards ave Garrigan a bad time from the opening whistle. They patrol ed the outside areas of Garrigan's offensive court and didn't give Mike Cink and John Fandel much of a chance to hit tht long shots.that might have opened up the free throw lane for Lyle Loebach and Ihe forwards Garrigan trailed, 4-2, after two minutes of play and 7-5 midway through the first period. Cink got all of the Bears' early points It was 9-7 with six minutes gone and a flurry of points gave Newman a 16-7 lead at Ihe end of the quarter.
