Wrestlers, Basketball Teams All Win Bears Rally For Ninth Win In Row After some early anxious moments, . Garrigan's Golden Bears bombed their way to an 82-70 victory over Pacelli at Austin Friday night. The win was the ninth straight for the locals against a lone loss. Coach Steve McCall's club is slated to meet Emmetsburg Catholic there tonight (Tuesday), then enters the Diocesan Tournament this weekend with a meeting with St. Edmond at Ft. Dodge Sunday at 7:30 p. m. The meeting with Catholic is the first of two this season, but the contest with St. Edmond will be the second. The Bears blasted the Gaels here Dec. 16, 88-64. Winner and loser of the game Sunday will travel to Sioux City a week later to meet the winner and loser of the Carroll Kuemper- Sioux City Heelan contest for the class A championship of the diocese. The long trip to Austin may have taken something out of the Bears - at least that was one possibility as the home club got off to a 5-0 lead soon after the opening buzzer - and expanded the bulge to 10-1 before Garrigan's bombsights zeroed in. The early surge — and much of Pacelli's offense during the entire fray - was triggered by the shooting of big Mike Lobb, who seemed to like the area around the free throw line real well. At any rate, Garrigan's balanced offense began to function, and by the end of the quarter the Bears trailed by only 21-20. The locals wound up on top 42-41 at the half, then switched defenses somewhat, using more man-for- man, and put the game away. At the three-quarter mark, Garrigan led, 62-53, and with Bill Reding and Co. in charge, won handily. Reding, always a steady performer, wound up as top man for the locals with 27 points, a career high for him. He got a lot of help from Joe Becker, who canned 21 points, Dick Muller with 14 and Brian LaBarre with 13. Lobb led both teams as he slammed home 21 points in the first half and 10 in the last for a 31-point total for the losers. Jahr got 16 for the Austin entry. Box score: GARRIGAN (82) Becker J.

The victory upped the locals' season m t .rkto 7-2-1, and left two duals on the slate before Sectional action. Coach Champ Martin's grapplers will host Clear Lake in another loop meet here this Friday night. A week later, the locals win wind up their dual season at Osage. Three men, Denny Petersen, Paul Watkins and Bruce Bennett, got their first five-point wins of the campaign, while a pair of tried campaigners, Larry Munger and Clint Young, got the other falls in what turned out to be a simple win over Iowa Falls. Fastest fall was by Munger at 120 Ibs. Larry flipped Stabler in 1:03 after Petersen nailed Yeomans in 2:20 in the 95 Ib. clash; Watkins showed Ahlberg the lights in 4:44 at 103; and Tom Laing got a 5-0 decision over Lettow at 112. The Bulldogs then had an overwhelming 18-0 bulge. The count went to 21-3 when Roger Menneke got a decision and it was 26-6 after Young flopped Dickering. Bennett's fall made it 31-6 and when Max Miller picked up a 6-0 decision at 165 and Phil Bode a 6-2 decision over Winters (a fellow who had flipped him earlier this season), Algona had a 37-6 lead before Brad Farnham lost a toughie in the heavy weight match. Actually, there wasn't a local grappler that didn't have a chance to win— despite the fact the Cadets apparently had quite a few strong boys. Young's win was his 18th without a loss this season, while Miller upped his record to 16-2, Munger to 13-4-1, Bode to 10-4, Bennett 11-6 and Petersen 10-7. Results, with Bulldogs listed first: 95 — Denny Petersen threw Yeomans, 2:20. 103 - Paul Watkins threw Ahlberg, 4:44. 112 — Tom Laing decisioned Lettow, 5-0. 120 — Larry Munger threw Stabler, 1:03. 127 — Steve Claude decisioned by Dave Newton, 4-2. 133 — Roger Menneke de- cisioned Darwin Newton, 4-0. 138 - Randy Riedinger de- cisioned by Modlin, 4-0. 145 - Clint Young threw Dickering, 3:20. 154 - Bruce Bennett threw Kinsinger, 3:00. 165 - Max Miller decisioned Linn, 6-0. 180 - Phil Bode decisioned Winters, 6-2. Hwt. - Brad Farnham de- cisioned by Ites, 6-5. Algona's Junior Varsity kicked-off the evening with an easy 30-13 victory in the curtain-raiser, Russ Bird, Jerry Simpson and Duane Hunt got falls and Rob Claude, Darrell Miller, Steve Schultz, Lance Rutledge and Larry Taylor picked up decisions along the way. Hot Early, Bulldogs Dump Eagle Grove CONFERENCE STANDINGS Tuesday, Jan. 17, 1967 Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines-9 ALGONA Clarion Clear Lake Hampton Webster City Eagle Grove Humboldt Iowa Falls W 8 5 5 5 4 3 3 0 L 0 3 3 4 5 5 5 8 A quick getaway pushed Algona's Bulldogs to an easy 7354 verdict over Eagle Grove here Friday night before a standing room only crowd (with overflow treated to closed circuit TV in the auditorium) as the locals upped their North Central Conference mark to 8-0 and season record to 10-1. The win was also the third straight. Two loop frays are on tap this weekend as the charges of Coach Howie Stephenson travel to Humboldt Friday night, then host Webster City the following evening. In earlier meetings, Algona downed Humboldt, 82-50, and Webster City, 52-48. After the first couple of minutes Friday, the Algona- Eagle Grove game was not close. At that time, the visitors aeld a 3-2 lead — and it was the only one all night as the Bulldogs began finding the mark, breaking from a 4-4 tie to race to a 144 lead with little more than two minutes left in the period. Gregg Betts, taking advantage of sharp inside passing by Craig Espe and Bill Boldridge, canned eight points, Tom Claude and Brocke Laws four each as the Bulldogs held the upper hand, 20-5, after eight minutes. Claude and Espe also came up with a couple of thefts each to set up quick buckets during the 10-point blast. Halfway through the second stanza, Algona held the upper hand, 28-13, and there was little doubt as to the outcome. A pair of beautiful tip-ins by Boldridge early in the period, plus two buckets each by betts and Claude allowed the locals to hold a 41-24 bulge at halftime. Laws and Espe fired in 15 points between them as the barrage continued in the third quarter - but the loss of Boldridge, who injured the ankle he splintered in football drills early last fall about halfway through the period - hurt the Algona attack, and from then on, the visitors managed to close the gap. Algona led, 60-39, at the three- quarter mark-and with reserves playing much of the last stanza, the Eagles slimmed the lead to 19 points at the final buzzer. As usual, all of Stephenson's starters (and the reserves) had a hand in the win, with Betts topping the scoring with 17 points, while Espe and Laws added 14 Box score : ALGONA (73) Boldridge Laws Betts Espe Claude Meyer Jones Taylor Farnham Wildin FG 3 5 6 4 6 1 0 0 1 0 26 FT 2-5 4-4 5-8 6-7 0-1 2-2 2-2 0-0 0-0 0-0 21-29 F 3 4 0 3 4 1 0 2 1 0 18 apiece and Claude getting 12. Boldridge got eight before his injury, and at the rate he was going would have easily gotten into double figures for the third straight night. He wound up with eight. Claude was also stunned with 1:48 remaining in the fourth quarter when Bill Smith of the Eagles collidedhsad-on with him. Tom, flattened for a few seconds, remained in the game and appeared none the worse for wear. Smith led the Eagles in scoring with 16 points, while Mark Hogenson added 14. Algona held a 36-29 margin under the boards, with Betts enjoying perhaps his best night as he nabbed 16. Boldridge got seven and Laws six. In the larceny department, Espe led the wiy with six, with Betts coming up with four steals and Claude, Meyer and Bob Farnliam jetting two each. Algona's Junior Varsity clobbered Eagle Grove, 62-24, in the curtain-raiser to remain unbeaten through 11 games - and also on top of the loop's standings. The victory by Coach Keith Christie's club was led by Rich Black with 20 points and Dale Pedersen with 10. The locals led, 46-14, at halftimo. CHARGE IT! ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY NEW LOW PRICE!
