it's Bears vs. Bulldogs in finals Algona rips Lakota; Bears edge St. John's Garrigan and Algona high schools will renew their basketball fend after a three-year layoff on the Garrlgwi court Monday night and the prize will be a trip to Spencer Saturday night, March 6. (or a first round sub-state game against the winner of thf Storm Lake • Sac City game in district 7 at Odeboll, The winner of this game will return here the following week for a showdown for a state tournament berth at Des Moines. The Rears load in the rivalry, begun in 1960, by n 24 margin. They won the 1060 first round district affair. 67-52. Alsonn high school romped back with a 70-41 first round win in 1901 and the Bears went ahead again in 1962 with a 74-69 victory to win thi-ir only district tournament in history. I the second half and still held on at 45-41 after three periods, But then only a Brian LaBarro 6ARRIGAN 60 ST. JOHN'S 58 That third game jinx in tour- j basket and a'chuck Becker frco nament basketball reared its,throw interrupted a steady ugly head in the midst of a sue-!stream of j 2 straight Bancroft cessful season for St. John's of!points and that is how things Bancroft here Friday night and stood, 53-48, when Messrs. Mul- Garrigan high school was the happy recipient of its appear- pearance. A crazy 60-58 win for the Bears was the result and a chance at Algona high school in the finals. This was a game of crucial moments but all others dwarfed the one that occurred with 3:16 left in the game. Bancroft was holding a comfortable 53-48 lead and apparently had its third straight victory over the Bears, now 10-11, safely tucked away in Coach Vince Meyer's hope chest And then the great Rob Hatten and sophomore Dick Muller were caught exchanging elbows and pushing each other with:-blood in their eyes. Bingo — both were ushered to the sidelines and with Hatten went Bancroft's chances for victory. Of course, Muller was an important cog in the Bear machine but Hatten was THE big'spoke all the way around for the Johnnies. He'd already stuffed in 18 points and seemed to come up with the big play when it was needed. Without him, and Dick Diers incidentally had departed with five fouls with 4:35 left in the game, this was a Bear romp. Get this — Bancroft scored only three'points in the! last 3:16 of the game -—all on free throws. ANYWAY, after the departure of the elbowers, Becker hit from the field with.2;56 left to make it 57-52. Sophomore Bill Reding got two free throws to slice the lead to three points and Becker hit again with 2:15 left. Then it was Dick Bleich's turn for glory with a jumper that put Garrigan in the lead at 58«57 with 1:44 left in the game. But there was still more weird doings left. Bancroft got the ball trailing 58-57 with 37 seconds left but lost it .with 19 to go. With 13 remaining and the score still 58-57, Bradley meshed a free throw to make it 59-57. St. John's called time out illegally and Garrigan was awarded a technical foul shot with 13 seconds still left. Muller made it to ice the contest. BUT — at the time he made the free throw, Garrigan had six men on the floor and continued to have them on the court until one second remained .on the clock. One of the three men with striped shirts suddenly woke up to the fact this wasn't a girls game — teams were only allowed five players. So play was stopped, Bancroft was given a free throw on the technical foul (the fourth of the game — evenly divided). It was made and the Johnnies were awarded the ball at midfloor. They never came close to getting off a shot in that final one second. HAD THE officials detected the obvious six men on the floor (it was doubly obvious because Bancroft was playing a man-for- man defense at the time and one Garrigan guy was all alone), Muller's free throw would have been disallowed, the Johnnies would have got a free throw with 1.3 seconds to play AND THE BALL AFTER THAT. Back to prior happenings. It was a see-saw game. Dick Bleich got the Bears into a momentary lead with a couple of long ones in the early minutes but Mike Carpenter put the Johnnies in front with two free throws at 6-4, The Johnnies got their biggest margin at 17-8 on two free throws by scrappy Don Menke, a little guy that was all over the floor all night long. Don Potthoff hit three points quickly but Gar' rigan still trailed 19-11 at the quarter. The Bears got in front on a Potthoff rebound at 21-20. The half ended 30-30. Garrigan opened up a six- point breach on baskets by Muller, Bleich and Becker to start ler and Hatten were ushered to the sidelines. After that, it was only a matter of when and how the Bears would win. Before closing, it should be noted that Garrigan could easily have had the game iced had it come anywhere near its season- long average of 65% from the charity line. The Bears made just two of 17 chances in the first half and had ONLY 3 OF 25 'TIL 4:35 LEFT IN THE GAME. They made seven of eight in the final crucial moments. So again, had the Bears even made a chilly 50% of their charity line tosses, they'd have been ahead by 10 or 15 by the time the game got hectic.

Both teams experienced foul difficulties but Al Pricbe got in trouble the earliest. It took the 6'3" senior just 2 minutes and 23 seconds to pick Up three fouls and he rode the bench the rest of the first half. Al played the entire second half without getting his fourth. Danny Merryman fouled out and he was the only one despite 42 flag- downs. So now the Bulldogs are 11-9 for the season and come what may, arc assured of another winning season under the tutelage of Coach Howie Stcphcnson. Oh yes, they arc just three games from a return to the state meet — but wow, what big games they'll be. ALGONA (77) fg Merryman 5 Hardy 4 Claude —_ 4 Espe 7 quarters. Coach Steve McCall did the best he could in holding down the score. He used all twelve Bears that suited up and all but two broke into the scoring column.

Bill Reding hit 14 and Don Potthoff was close behind with 13. Dick Muller added a dozen and Chuck Becker got 11 more.

In fact, the Eagles had their biggest lead of the game, 19-15 at the close of the first quarter when Tom Claude fired one home as the buzzer sounded. And then Merryman took over with two jumpers, a couple of free throws, an easy steal layup and another jump, er. Algona had a 27-23 lead at that point and Lakota never cut the margin to less than four points after that, Sophomore Craig Espe, the lad with the quick hands, and Dale Teeter, the junior with the long arms, added valuable points in this 27-point period but Merryman finished with 13 in the quarter and that was all but six of his final total. Teeter ended with 23, a notch or two above his average, while Espe fired home seven tries for 14 points. Algona led at the half 44-31 despite some heroics by junior Roger Becker, a potential all- state candidate next year along with AJgpna's Teeter. Becker ended with 19 points and he could have had 30 had he not passed off time and again, for easy shots by his teammates. He's one fine basketball player and he's got another year left. WAYNE CQ*Pi$ added 13 more to the Eagles' total and Rich Thomsen put home 10. But the Eagles just couldn't hack it after their second quarter debacle. Even after Merryman threw home his 10 straight points, the Bulldogs held only a 31-27 lead midway in the period. Algona then got 11 straight points for a 4>27 bulge and La- i came kola was facing its second loss j score FIRST ROUND ST. JOHN'S 84 SENTRAL 48 St. John's of Bancroft had little trouble subduing Sentral of Fenton here Wednesday night in a first round district boy's game, 84-48. Sentral was never in it as the Johnnies scored almost at will. Coach Vince Meyer's club, now 13-3 for the season, moved in front 24-14 after one quarter and 41-25 at the half. Meyer used substitutes freely in the game and nine of the ten.vSt. John's men broke into'the SCOT* ing column." St. John's scored 43 points in the final half and used a fast break effectively in getting easy buckets. Only blight on the Bancroft record was a mediocre 50 per cent at the free throw liny. Mike Carpenter canned 24 points to top the parade while Dick Diers was close behind with 22. High scorer Bob Hatten hit 18 but missed seven of nine free throw chances. Best scorer for Sentral was Tom Geitzenauer, Perry Elmers and Allen Marlow with a , dozen points each. SENTRAL (48) L. Geitzenauer Marlow _ __ 2 3 0 0 0 DeSart ._ Collins - Uthof _ _.

Graettinger didn't get its first field goal until only 4:56 was left in the first half when Bill Kathman hit from the side. By that time, Garrigan had a huge 24-6 bulge and the lead was 34-10 at the half- In addition to hitting just one field goal in the first half, Gra* ettinger missed 16 of 24 free throws and it was almost inconceivable that this was a team that rolled up a 15-5 season's record and finished in second place in the Corn Belt Conference. By the time Randy Henderson hit the second Pirate field goal with 1:27 left in the third quarter, the Graettinger plight be- almost a novelty.
