Dodge St. Edmond could do no wrong in the first half, piled up a 22-polnt lead, then had to hang on for dear life before taking a 77-64 decision from Garrigan's Golden Bears before a large crowd here Friday night. The win gave the Gaels a 13-3 season mark and left the Bears with a 15-4 record as the Ft. Dodge club won the rubber game of three played by the two teams this season. After Bill Reding fired in a field goal to knot tbe count at 2-2 early in the fray, the Gaels were off running. They got 12 straight points, thanks to the shooting of John Perkins and Jim Klinger, to lead 14-2 before a Garrigan free throw hit the net with 3:35 remaining. It was 16-3 then 24-4 before the buzzer sounded, ending toe period with the Gaels on top, 28-6. Perkins canned 12 points and Klinger nine in the eight minutes. The visitors also held a 14-2 rebounding edge. The Bears, behind Don Potthoff, Dick Muller and Dick Bleich, began to creep up during the second stanza, and at one time were down 38-22. Then it was 42-26 before the visitors hammered in six points for a 48-26 halftime cushion. Amid shouts from the St. Edmond reserves of "run mem off tbe floor" and others not so nice, the second half got underway - and Garrigan made its first real move of the night. Bill Reding got hotter than a $2 diamond ring, fired in seven of eight field goal attempts, all from long range, and led a rally that pannicked the Gaels. He got some help along the way from the other starters, but time after time, it was his longies that picked up the tempo of the Garrigan attack. The Bears were battling under the boards, and getting their share of ; rebounds, and the guards were making steals all over the place as St. Edmond's lead was chopped to 52-36, 52-38, 53-42 and 57-44. Five points by the Bears closed out the third ojuarter - and St. Edmood was clinging to a 57-49 edge, with Perkins getting all nine of his team's points in that eight minute stretch. Garrigan couldn't get closer than eightpointsdown the stretch, with tbe teams trading points much of the way. The Gaels held leads of 59-51, 64-55 and 73-64 before icing the win. Tbe rally by Coach Steve McCall's chargers was very similar to the one thrown at Estberville a week earlier - but that ooe paid off with a win. Perkins proved to be tbe determining factor as be pumped home 31 points and nabbed 16 rebounds, while Klinger got 19 points and nine rebounds. Hanson added 13, while Reding got 19 points, Potmotf 17 and Muller 15 for the Bears. Potthoff got 10 rebounds, Muller seven and Jim Youngwirth six for the locals, who trailed in rebound totals, 40-33 .
