Bears' 14-Game Skein Ends 73-69, Estherville Garrigan's Golden Bears saw their 15-game winning streak halted by a hot-shooting Estherville team there Saturday night, 73-69. For three quarters, it looked as though Coach Steve McCall's bruisers would make it number 16 , but an inspired comeback by the Lakes Conference champions gave the Bears their second taste of defeat this year. With Brian LaBarre hitting his first five field goal attempts, Garrigan raced to a 14-2 lead and had the hometown fans sulking. Then Estherville caught fire on goals by Guge and Lee and brought the count to 1610. A Jumper by Dick "Moose" Muller gave the Bears an 1810 lead at the end of the first quarter. At the start of the second period, Garrigan again found the range on fielders by Bill Reding and Dick Muller as the score went to 26-18. Then Guge, Estherville's All-State football fullback, began cutting loose from deep in either corner and the Midgets came roaring back. Everything the stocky Estherville center put in the air went through and the battle was on. Esthervllle's Lee also found the range and the Midgets took their first lead of the game as the half ended 34-33. As the third quarter got under way, Garrigan immediately took the lead again on the scoring of Reding and Dick Muller. The Bears maintained a four- point lead until mid-way in the period when Guge once again found the range. The Midget center was Mr. Everything as he put on a one man show - rebounding, stealing passes, driving in for quick layups, and hitting his long counters from the corner. Tight coverage on LaBarre made it impossible for him to get loose for his jump shots from out front, but the Garrigan guard drew five free throw opportunities and made them all. Estherville tied the count at 46- all with two minutes left in the third quarter, but the Bears maintained a slight control on the shooting of Reding, smooth hook- shots by Dick Muller, and a drive-in by hard-working Joe Becker. The period ended with Garrigan on top 52-51. ^ The Bears were still leading halfway through the final quarter until the Muller boys, Jack and Dick, were whistled out on five personal fouls each. With a large portion of their rebounding strength on the bench, Garrigan saw Estherville grab the lead and hang on for a 73-69 upset victory. Guge topped all scorers with 27 points, including 12 of 19 field goal attempts, as the winners shot a sizzling 52 percent from the field. Reding took scoring honors for Garrigan with 21, while Dick Muller and LaBarre added 19 and * * * Box score: Garrigan (69) Reding D. Muller J.
