Bears Hammer Pocahontas 68-49; Seven/A Straight Hot shooting during the third quarter ushered Garrigan's Golden Bears to any easy 68-49 victory over Pocahontas Catholic before a large crowd here Friday night. The Bears, who posted their seventh straight win and ran their season mark to 7-1, were cool, for the most part, the rest of the night. The smaller Eagles gave the charges of Coach Steve McCall some real trouble during the early going-but the bombarding Bears hit 25 points in the third stanza to put the contest out of reach. The locals trailed, 5-1, with two minutes gone in the first round — and were still behind, 8-7, halfway through the quarter. Then, big Dick Muller and Joe Becker began to find the range and it was 18-15 at the buzzer. Muller fired in eight points and Becker six in the eight minutes. Becker continued to shoot well in the second period— and Brian LaBarre and Bill Reding joined in to give the Bears a 37-29 halftime edge. In an earlier meeting of the clubs at Pocahontas, Garrigan was on top, 45-20, at halftime and went on to an 84-32 win. At any rate, Becker had 14 points to lead all scorers at the intermission. McCall used his regulars only eight minutes the last half — as reserves played the entire final quarter. The eight minutes was enough, though, as Dick Muller pumped in 11 points, Becker six and LaBarre four on the way to a 62-38 bulge. The rebounding of Muller, who snared eight, and Reding with four and the steals of the latter actually triggered the drive. Garrigan out-rebounded the visitors 15-8 as the lead mounted. The Bears' reserves went almost six minutes before scoring in the final stanza, but the Eagles weren't doing much better, so only five points were chopped off the 24-point bulge before the final buzzer. Dick Muller, who continues to add to the individual scoring total at Garrigan every time he rings the bell with a free throw or fielder, turned in one of his better jobs of the season as he scored 19 points and hauled in 14 rebounds. Brother Jack Muller was next in rebounding with nine as the locals held the upper hand under the boards, 41-40. Joe Becker topped both clubs in scoring with 20 points as he continued to have a hot hand, while LaBarre, season scoring leader for the Bears, got 12. Bill Brenning topped the losers with 14 points, while Jim Strathman added 13. Reding and LaBarre combined to pick up five steals for the Bears, while Mike Brown, with five, got most of Catholic's. Garrigan's Junior varsity trailed early, then came on with a surge In the second half to win its fifth game in six outings. Coach Duane Kramer's club was led by Mike Elbert with 20 points, while Tom Black notched 15 and John Winkel 11. Wins Stcond Dave Martin, freshman at ISU, state champion wrestler a year ago and son of Mr. and Mrs. Champ Martin, Algona, placed second in a field of 36 men in the 160-lb. class of the Midlands College Tournament at LaGrange, m. Thursday and Friday and was awarded a trophy. His only loss came in the finals to a teammate at ISU, Reg Wicks. Box score : GARRIGAN (68) Becker Youngwirth D. Muller Reding LaBarre J.
