Garrigan Posts 68-57 Win Over Pacelli; 7 Stiraight Garrigan's Golden Bears rolled to an impressive 68-57 victory over Austin Pacelli in the Garrigan gym before a large crowd Sunday afternoon. While Coach Leon Venn's team won by just 11 points, it was apparent the margin might just as well have been 25-30 points. Twelve men saw action for the locals, who have now won seven straight and have a 10-4 season record. The Bears have two games this weekend. They will travel to Mason City for a meeting with Newman high Friday night and attempt to avenge a 46-38 loss earlier in the season, then will hos Emmelsburg Catholic here Satur day night. The Bears hammera Emmetsburg, 71-42, in an earlier meeting. Garrigan wasn't rusty at all af ter a lay-off of a week which followed a successful drive to the Sioux City Diocesan Tournamenl championship. It took the Bears only two or three minutes to really get rolling against Pacelli's Shamrocks and except for one c'oM stretch in the early stages of the second period, the outcome was never in doubt. With Mike Cink canning buckets left and right, Garrigan swept to an 11-3 lead halfway through the first period. Cink had 12 points when the buzzer sounded ending the quarter with Garrigan on top, 6-Algona (la.) Upper De* Molnes Tuesday, February 6, 1962 21-10. Then came the only Garrigan drouth during the entire game. The Bears went almost four minutes without a point at the start of the second round and Pacelli made the most of it, cutting the margin to 21-18. However, Cink, Lyle Loebach and John Fandel then flipped in the points that built the halftime margin to 37-20. In fact, the Bears got the last 14 points scored before the intermission. The third quarter was much the same as the earlier going, except that Loebach took over the scoring chores, almost by himself. He rebounded like a demon and pitched in nine points while the Bears upped the margin to 54-34 at the three-quarter mark. Play in the last period was erratic as Coach Vann inserted reserves from the midway point on. At that time, Garrigan was on top, 58-42, and the scoring of Von- felt, who canned 10 late points, wasn't enough to pull Pacelli within range of the rampaging Bears. Cink got 18 of his game-leading 21 points during the first half. He also grabbed six rebounds and stole, five Patelli passes. Loebach counted 14 last-half points and wound up with 20, also topping >oth teams in rebounds with 16. Bob Gcecke got 11 points and 14 rebounds, including 13 in the first half, arid Fandel flipped in 10 points from his guard slot. Hanson and Vonfelt led the losers with 14 points each and the latter was the top rebounder for the Shamrocks. Sox score: Garrigan (68) FG FT F Goecke- 5 1-2 S.

The girls, finished the league season with a perfect 10-0 record. They beat Ledyard's defending champions 45-40. An overflow crowd witnessed the two rugged, hotly-contested games. Charold Barrett and Jim Rose led the Eagles to a 26-20 first half lead and they held it the rest of the way. Ledyard's final challenge came with five minutes to play as they got within one point, 42-41. The rally fell short when Payne fouled Bulldog Rally Is Just Short Of Win 25 7-18 15 Garrigan's fresh-sophs dropped a 52-49 decision in the curtain- raiser after trailing 23-18 at the half, despite 22 points by Lee Froehlich. Bulldogs Nip Hampton, 52-49 Streit Tallies 23; Charity Tosses Margin It's about 90 miles to Hampton, but stay-at-home Algona fans missed a couple of prime basketball games, and a pair of victories. The Algona varsity nipped Hampton, 52 to 49, and avenged an early- season loss on the Algona floor, while the "B" team also grabbed a last second win, 46-44. Hampton swept into a quick lead with two baskets sank a free throw. before Wooc Then Wetze! tallied and Streit dropped' in twp, to give the invaders a 7-4 edge, and the first quarter ended with Algona ahead, 12-9. From there on it was a see-saw contest, with free throws making the difference in the final outcome. Each team tallied 16 field goals, but Algona's 3-point margin came at the free throw circle as the summary will show. It was Corky Helgeson, a young Hampton man who lived in Algona until he reached the 8th grade, who was the major thorn in Al- gon'a side. He counted eight baskets, all from outside, and while Algona's defense was good inside, Helgeson kept his team in contention by hitting from the corners and outside the foul circle. After the half ended, 23 all, the Algona team roared back to start the second half and took a three- point margin, and worked some nice patterns for successful layups. Wetzel, while held in check on the scoring end, did some excellent work on rebounds. Sig Wood had a new experience, he went out on fouls. The last one was mistakenly handed to Wood, although th<< bench thought it was meant for Streit. Chuck turned in his usual good point total with 2,'i, while Tom Waller dropped in two from outside and two more on steals from Hampton, at the middle of the court. With three minutes to go, and Algona leading 47 to 43, the Bulldogs went into a modified stall. Hampton snagged a basket, however, leaving a one-point gap. Then it became a contest of Hampton's baskets against Algona's free throws. With Algona holding a slim lead, Hampton pressed a little too hard. Waller dropped in two free throws, Kueck netted two more, and the margin was maintained, despite Helgeson's beautiful pair of outside baskets near the climax. Both teams played a fast-breaking game and a rugged one, especially under the boards, but on a sportsmanlike basis. It was one of the few games this season when opposing team members exchanged conversation with each other during the contest — giving the referees the business, no doubt. Algona's win kept Hampton out of second place in the loop, as Iowa Falls lost to Webster City, and kept the Bulldogs still with a shot at the first division in conference final standings.

A forfeit in the 95 Ib. class ;ave the visitors five points and Jill Baker dropped a decision at 03. After Don Hutchison and Terry Brandow posted impressive decisions. to make it 8-6, Tim Vipond dropped a close decision to make t 11-6. Bob Patton then came from be- lind to gain a draw and Mike Kain, black eye and all, came through at 138 Ibs. to make it 13-11 in favor of the visitors. The win allowed Kain to remain unbeaten for the season. As far as match victories were concerned, that was it for the locals. Osage took the final four to walk away with the verdict, despite the fact the duel was hard fought all the way.

Hwt. — Bill Specht (A) thrown by John Dietericks, 2:54. Kain, Patton, Vipond, Brandow and Hutchison were most impressive for the Bulldogs against a team that was as good as any to appear here for years. Brandow was never better, and Kain's win came after he received a bump on the head during the first period that made it very difficult for him to outpoint his opponent. The B-team went down battling too. A fall by Larry Stratton and decisions by Denny Miller, Pau Smith and Bob Martin, which made it 19-19 going into the heavyweight match, set up a thrilling climax to the meet. Tom Burlis went all out to defeat an opponeni that must have outweighed him by 40-50 pounds, and had a 1-1 draw until the final two seconds of action when a take down gave Osage the match and meet.

The opener was a tight defensive battle as both guard courts stood put. Lakota survived a two point second quarter when Ledyard's defense was at its best. Their only points came on free throws. A cold-shooting Panther- ette team could do little better with five pouits and Lakota led 16-12 at the half. Marilyn Rippentrop led Lakota with 25 points with Pat Tjaden adding 13. Tjaden hit four key points late in the game to ward off the final Ledyar.d challenge. Nancy Herzog scored 17 points before fouling, out with Gail Baumah adding 11.

The win was the fourteenth straight for the Midgets, while Coach Howie Stephen' son's team now has a 7-8 season mark. The Bulldogs will attempt to even their season and conference records here Friday night .when they will host Clear Lake, owner of a 3-7 loop mark. The Lions dropped a 63-45 decision to Clarion's high-flying league leaders Friday night. Algona posted a 47-44 vie tory over Clear Lake at Clear Lake in an earlier meeting this season. Estherville blasted Algona right off the court during the early firing Saturday night. The Midgets, utilizing a fine passing attack and pin-point shooting, built a 7-2 lead midway in the period to 15-4 at the end of the first eight minutes. And Algona was in bad shape in the foul column. The two big men, Chuck Streit and Sig Wood, had four and two, respectively. So things looked mighty black.. Streit sat out the second period while Lynn Kueck and Maynard Shackelford took over. Kueck flipped in six points, his entire output for the game, Bill Wetzel arid Tom Waller four each and Wood three as the Bulldogs rallied from a 23-6 deficit after two minutes of play to trail by 33-23 at halftime. Algona's chances of victory still looked slim. Estherville's Geerdes kept banging away, along with Fatka and Timmins, and the Midgets added to their margin during the third quarter. They led, 54-38 shortly before the buzzer and took a 54-40 lead into the final stanza. Waller, Streit and Wetzel counted most of Algona'a points during the eight minutes. Nobody in the gym knew it (with the possible exception of the Bulldogs), but the final eight minutes proved to be as exciting as any played all year. Estherville got the first basket in the fourth period to lead 56-40, get five more points In the last 7% minutes. Meanwhile, Sig Wood, Algona's only sophomore starter, began hitting the points that moved Algona closer to a possible victory. He grabbed rebounds with authority, although given plenty of help by Streit, Wetzel and Wai ler, hit three field goals and four free throws as the locals cut the margin to 61-50 with four minutes to play and 61-52 with two minutes left. Algona scored the final six points of the night to chop the margin to three points at the buzzer. The wind-up stunned everyone in. the crowd. Wood topped Algona's scoring with 16 points, followed by 14 by Waller, who got the game's most exciting bucket on a driving lay- up, and Wetzel, who again worked his head off, with 11. Geerde's topped Estherville with 25 and his ability to move into the open for clear shots. proved to be the difference in the teams. Selmonson got 13 for the winners. Wetzel grabbed 10 rebounds, Wood and Streit nine each and Waller seven and Waller and Wetzel managed to steal the ball six times during the game. Geerdes, Selmonson and Moritz were Estherville's top rebounders.
