Down 42-28, Bears Rally To Dump Estherville, 69-60 An almost -unbelievable last- half rally allowed Garrlgan's Golden Bears to skip past Estherville, 69-60, here before a large crowd Saturday night, upping the season mark of the locals to 13-3. Victory over the Midgets came the hard way - and the 9-point win caused many area fans to contemplate further the possible outcome of the Garrigan-Algona high game in the first round of the District Tournament at Garrigan Feb. 28 - because the Bulldogs also downed Estherville by nine points, claiming a 52-43 win here Jan. 29. The Midgets are the only common foe to be met by the two locals schools this year. If ever a Garrigan team appeared to be against the wall the Bears did during the first half Saturday. In fact, the contest was one of halves, with the visitors dominating the first half and the Bears the second - and as thing! turned out - the second half is the one to take. Estherville, led by Al Bolty and Joe Myers, a couple of fine guards, hopped to leads of 4-0, 9-4 and 17-10 before taking an 18-14 edge at the end of the first period. The guards combined for 11 points, while Bill Reding was Garrigan 1 s main threat, getting six points and five of his team's eight rebounds. Bolty and Myers .stayed hot and Rog Guge joined them to shoot the Midgets in front 2921, 32-23 and 38-28 during the second stanza. The visitors had what seemed like an insurmountable 42-28 bulge at half time, with a 20-15 rebound edge and!3-2... margin in steals in the bargain. Guge had 12. points and Bolty and Myers 11 each, while Reding upped his total to 10 and Don Potthoff had eight for. the Bears. Garrigan mistakes had glared at times, and recovery seemed impossible - to everyone but Coach Steve McCall and his chargers! Through the first four minutes of the third quarter, the Midgets still seemed to have the guns to walk away with the win then something happened. In fact, three somethings. Reding, Dick Bleich and Jim Youngwirth really went to work - and almost in the wink of an eye, the complexion of the game changed. With Youngwirth taking charge under the boards and Reding and Bleich coming up with steals and baskets, the margin was cut to 52-45 with eight minutes remaining. It was 56-49 with six minutes left when lightning struck, but quick. Potthoff, Bleich, Brian LaBarre and Co. got in gear. The count went to 58-51, then 58-53 before Estherville upped the margin to 60-55. Potthoff, who played the finest quarter he ever has, slammed in a field goal, was fouled and hit the free throw and it was 60-58. Then Reding canned a jumper to tie the count. Then LaBarre took over - and how { He hit one field goal, then another, a third and fourth, then capped the victory by getting bis ninth straight point, a free throw, just before the final buzzer. The 14-straight points by the Bears came so fast none of the fans hardly realized Estherville hadn't scored for more than four minutes at the end of the game. LaBarre wound up in double figures for the first time since Dec. 4 - and his 6,1 scoring average didn't suffer when he poked in 10 points, Leading Algeria, (la.) Upper Des Motnet Tuesday, February 15, 1966 the scoring for Garrigan was Bill Reding with 20 - and his play through all four quarters was very good. Potthoff capped his scoring with 11 points in the final stanza and wound up with 19 - and grabbed 15 rebounds and two steals. Guge and Bolty each got 19 for the losers. The Bears wound up on the short end of a 37-36 rebound struggle, with Guge gett'.ng 16 for the visitors. Garrigan held the upper hand in steals at the end, 9-4, and in blocked hots, 3-1. Estherville's record went to 9-8 with the loss. The Midgets on all six free throw attempts, all on 1-and-l situations, coming down the stretch, and helped cut their own throats.
