GARRIGAN Algona Hi Is 74-69 Loser, District Final A near-capacity crowd (limited mostly to persons living in Algona and immediate area due to a blizzard) saw Garrigan's Golden Bears register a 74-69 victory over the Algona Bulldogs in the finals of the district 6 tournament in the Garrigan gym Monday night. And those fortunate enough to make it to the game will not soon forget it. Coach Leon Vann's Garrigan team won the right to advance to first round sub-state tournament action, originally slated ' in the Garrigan gym tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 7:30 p.m. The Bears are to meet the winner of the district 5 tourney at Rolfe. Once-beaten Laurcns is to meet Twin Rivers in that finale Wednesday night. The game was postponed from Monday night and the sub- state game date will be announced later. The Bulldog-Bear tussle was a slam-bang event all the way. A times, it appeared the teams mighl have to go into overtime action to settle the issue, but Garrigan after taking a late 11-point lead, fought off an Algona challenge and hung on to win. Mike Cink was the only Garrigan player to find the range consistently during the first period as the Bulldogs flashed balance to take an early lead. Led by the firing of Lynn Kueck and Sig Wood, the Bulldogs grabbed an 8-3 lead after only two minutes of play and held the upper hand 11-5 halfway through the first stanza. Cink then canned a couple of buckets from far out to close the gap to 13-11, but Kueck and Co. got hot, and featuring a slick passing attack zoomed to a 19-13 lead at the end of eight minutes. Lead Changes Hands It didn't take Garrlgan long to catch up. With big Lyle Loebach finding the range, both from the field and free throw line, Garrigan got the first seven points in the second round and grabbed a short- lived 20-19 edge. The lead then changed hands with each basket or pair of free throws until Algona went into a 27-24 lead on the shooting of Bill Wetzel and Wood with four minutes left in the half. However, Cink and Loebach 6-Alflona (la.) Upper Ctot Moitwt __ _ Ffl KOSSVTft COUNTY 1 [SPORTS] W, 1969 ent-day basketball. Loebach T»j» Scorer Loebach wound up as the game's top scorer as he pumped in 22 points, 11 in each half. His rebounding was vita] in the second half. Waller topped Algona with 18 points, including 14 in the final half. His passing set up many Algona buckets and. he was the hardest working defensive player on the court. Goecke also netted 18. Outstanding young player in the game was Wood, 'all, slim Bulldog sophomore. He grabbed rebounds well and wound up with 16 points. Kueck, getting most of his points from far out, came through with great clutch shooting to notch 15 points and Streit wound up with 11. Cink got 12 points during the first half and had to settle for one free throw during the entire last half — but he kept the Bears in the running during the first 16 minutes.

Algona led, 56-44, with four minutes left and 59-46 with only two minutes remaining. Late points by Payne, Lloyd and Menke narrowed the gap for the never-say-die Panthers. Coach Eldon Fain's team gave a good accounting of itself against the more poised Bulldogs. The Panthers, almost upset Algona's late stall, but couldn't get the ball often enough to overtake the winners. And, despite the fact they had only a couple of big men, the Panthers rebounded as well against the Bulldogs as any team all year.

The teams were tied at 32-32 before a free throw gave the Bulldogs a 33-32 lead at the intermission. The hottest shooting of the night came during a thrilling third period. Tom Waller and John Fandel of the opposing teams carried on a personal scoring duel through the early going as Garrigan crept into a slight lead. Then Bob Goecke and Steve Studer of the Bears took over to give Garrigan a 54-49 bulge shortly before the end of the quarter. Three-Quarter Mark Chuck Streit, who turned in his finest rebounding of the season during the first half, then led a surge that cut the Garrigan edge to 5453 at the three-quarter mark. Only eight minutes remained, but nobody thought of going home. Kueck flipped in a basket at the start of the period to give Algona a short-lived 55-54 lead, but Goecke and Loebach fired a Garrigan spurt that found the Bears holding a 70-59 bulge with about three minutes left. At that point, some fans had written the game off as a loss for the Bulldogs, but most returned to their seats when the high school crew began to peck away at the lead. It seemed impossible — and the way the game turned out, it was but the Bulldogs gave it every thing they had in an attempt to pull the game out of the fire in the last two minutes. Waller, Wood and Kueck took over. Wood ran his free throw record to 10-for-lo in the game as he hit four straight during the rally, Waller canned a pair o rapid-fire buckets and two free throws and Kueck, tossed in couple of sensational shots as the Garrigan lead was cut to 72-69. Enough time remained for one Jast-ditch effort by the losers, bu Fandel and Cink each hit a free throw to give Garrigan a five point — and safe — margin. Every player that made an ap pearance for the two teams did fine job. There were mistakes by both clubs, such as throwing the ball away, traveling, etc., but in a game as frantic as this it seemec there would be more bad errors For the most part, both teams shot well, although at times in streaks — also prevalent in pres- 29 16-26 18 Two Algona high seniors played their final game, and Chuck Streit and Lynn Kueck will be sorely mjssed .when Coach Howie Stephenson begins workouts for the 1962-63 season next November.

Goecke wound up as the top icorer in the tournament. He got 65 points in three outings, an average of 21.7 per game. Cink got 57 points, Waller 50, Streit 44, Loebach 42, Wood 36, Wetzel 32, Kueck 32 and Fandel 30, all in three games. Their averages ranged from Cink's 19 to Fandel's 10, as all five AHS regulars topped that average and four of Garrigan's five starters bested 10. Garrigan's Golden Bears and Algona high's Bulldogs used fine 'irst half attacks to post wins in semi-final games before a full house Wednesday night, Mar. 7, to move into the finals of the district meet. Garrigan upped its season mark to 14-6 with a 74-65 verdict over St. John's of Bancroft after the Bulldogs ran their record to 12-8 with a 62-56 win over Ledyard in the opener. Coach Howie Stephenson's team got the job done against Ledyard despite a flock of early fouls. In fact, the first six fouls called in the game were on the Bulldogs. However, Algona hit five of its first six shots from the field, including 3-for-3 for Tom Waller from far out, and the Bulldogs managed to take 6-2, 10-7 and 16-11 leads in the first period. The free throwing of Steve Johnson, who hit six straight, allowed Ledyard to close the gap and Algona led, 1815, after eight minutes of action. Ledyard came on like an express train and took a 19-18 lead at the start of the second round. The Bulldogs tied it at 19-19, then a field goal gave Ledyard its last lead at 21-19. With two minutes gone in the quarter, the score was knotted, 21-21, and the task of scoring points went to young Sig Wood of the Bulldogs. The tall sophomore canned a pair of field goals and two free throws as the locals grabbed a 36-25 halftime bulge. By halftime, Johnson had 11 points for Ledyard, and Chuck Streit had 12 and Waller and Wood 10 each for the Bulldogs. With big Jerry Payne finding the range and Billy Menke giving a helping hand, Ledyard began to gnaw into the Algona margin in the third stanza. At the four minute mark, the Panthers trailed by only 42-38 and the margin was 4540 at the three-quarter mark. 20 16-27 19 The Garrigan-St. John's game was cozy during the first period. Fouls, which were predominate in both games, played an important part in the first eight minutes. There were eight fouls called on Garrigan and six on the Johnnies during the period as Garrigan held a slight lead throughout. The Bears held the upper hand 9-7, 15-11 and 20-17 before taking a slim 23-21 edge at the. buzzer. Mike Cink, John Fandel and Lyle Loebach got most of the Garrigan points and John Nemmers got eight for St. John's. Garrigan ran away from the Johnnies during the second period due to the fact the Bears managed to hit shots and St. John's didn't. Nemmers continued to hammer in points for the Bancroft club and Cink, Fandel, Loebach and Bob Goecke took turns scoring for the Bears. Garrigan held a 40-31 lead with four minutes left in the half and it was 47-36 at the intermission. A total of 24 fouls had been called when the teams went to the locker rooms. At the midway point in the third stanza, Garrigan had a commanding 55-39 bulge and it became apparent the Bears could coast home with the win. St. John's got the next five points, however, and Garrigan had a 60-48 lead at the three-quarter mark. Garrigan maintained a 12-point lead until the final two minutes of action when Nemmers and company closed the gap to nine. The passing of Fandel, who pinpointed the ball to mates under the hoop time after time, was very instrumental in the Garrigan win. He also had one of the best scoring nights of his career, winding up with 15 points. Goecke was the bread-and-butter scorer for Garrigan, however. He punched in 27 points and shared rebounding chores with Loebach, who got 14 points. Cink added 15 points to the Garrigan total. Nemmers wound up with 25 points for the Johnnies. He was aided by Don Smith, who got 13 and George Garry with 11. Tom Lampe, Roger Vaske and Smith battled for rebounds all night, but wound up on the short end against the bigger Bears' rebounders. There was certainly no lack of hustle or spirit — and the Johnnies didn't give up — they were out- shot. 'OR RENT - All modern farm house, on blacktop road 4 miles east, J /6 north of Algona.
