Corwi ma net Twin Rivers here Wednesday Corwith-Wesley high school got the "Espe treatment" here Monday night as Algona's Bulldogs advanced into the sectional finals opposite Twin Rivers with a 5-0 win on the Garrigan diamond. Craig Espe twirled hi* second straight tournament no-hitter »nd scored two of Algona's four runs. He contributed a triple and double, the only extra base blows for the locals, in the Bulldogs' 16th win against only two losses this season. The sectional finals were played here Wednesday night on the Garrigan field. A win would put Algona into the district meet against the Bancroft St. John's - Thompson winner. EPSE struck out 14 men and allowed just two baserun- ners in his masterpiece. He whiffed three of the first four Corwith-Wesley batters every time and had trouble if you could call it that, only with the last three men in the order, who didn't strike out once. C-W got one of its base- runners on in the third when Jim Maw walked to leadoff the inning. He advanced to second on Rich Johnson's sacrifice but died there as Espe got Al DeWaard on a ground' er to first and finned Mark Ofay. In the fifth, Jim Maw walked with two out but John* son's grounder to shortstop Roger Barr retired the side. Thus only one C-W man got as far as second base. ALGONA got all the runs it needed in the first inning when Espe tripled to the wall to lead off the game and came home on a poor throw back to the pitcher by catcher Dick Fox. Espe's line double to left was wasted in the third but Algona got another run in the fourth when Craig Taylor lined a hit to left and went to second when the ball got through the fielder. Barr then grounded to short but the throw to first was wild and Taylor came home for the second run. THE GAME remained 2-0 till the top of the seventh and then three C-W errors gave Algona three runs without a hit. Bill BolaVirfge walked to start the frame. Etpe laid down a perfect bunt but the throw to first went into rightfield and BoldrMge came all the way around to score and Espe landed en third. Jeff Allen ran for Espe and scored on a wild throw to first on Meyer's grounder to third. Meyer then stole third ftnd home to end the run parade.
