Bull Algona and Bancroft in district Monday Craig Espe won his 29th straight game in three years of pitching for Algona high school Wednesday night as he tossed a one-hitter and his mates defeated Twin Rivers 8-1 before a good-sized crowd at the Garrigan diamond in the sectional finals. The win moved tho Bulldogs opposite St. John's of Bancroft in • first round district game here tonight (Monday) at 7 p.m. The winner of that game will move into the district finals at Fonda against either Paton- Churdan or Fort Dodge on Wednesday night. The lone base hit off Espe also scored the Pirates, only run in the fourth. After two Bulldog errors, Fredrick stroked a clean single through the pitcher' box to score Brock from second base. Espe got the next man, pitcher Doug Logue, on a strikeout and gave up only a walk the rest of the way. ESPE WHIFFED 16 men enroute to his win including the side in the fifth and sixth innings. Only other baserunner for Twin Rivers was Hauig on a walk in the second inning. In the fourth, Brock got on base on an error on shortstop Roger Barr and then Rog Meyer babbled a bunt along the third baseline, setting up Frederick's hit. The Bulldogs got good wood on the ball all night, first off Logue and later off two reliefers. They didn't score, though, until the third. Craig Taylor's sharp smash down the third baseline was wasted in the second. Bill Boldridge started the third with a shot off third baseman Brock's glove. Espe walked and after Tom Claude flied to center, Meyer rapped a single to center for Algona's first run. Meyer stole second and then Espe came home on a throw to second.

McGrath was the Thompson pitcher and he struck out only four while walking eight. Algona women 1,2,3,in golf at Bancroft ALGONA high school baseball coach Keith Christie has a problem and it's a big one. How long and for how many games can he continue to pitch his unbeaten southpaw, Craig Espe, who was captured in these dramatic sequence photos last Wednesday night in pitching the Bulldogs to an 8-1 one-hit win over Twin Rivers in the sectional finals at Garrigan's field. St. John's of Bancroft could have a lot to say about the problem when they meet tonight in a first round district game. But the unbeaten Espe, who has now pitched 29 straight wins over a three year career, has had four full days of rest and should be ready for Coach Vihce Meyer s crew. WoHno . Should. Algona win, they'll play at Fonda in the district fmals Wednes- enters . , day against either Paton-Cnurdan or Fort Dodge high school The ^ sub-stete play Friday night. So it's a full week of baseball and more than one man can handle - even an Espe. Incidentally, he has been watched by ^baseball scouts from at least three major universities the past two weeks and has already received a scholarship offer from one of them. . c*m«,«« ^ Exclusive Advance Photos by Mike Stillman. LITTLE LEAGUE GAMES NOVICE LEAGUE (FINAL) W Ir Taylor slapped a slow hopper to first and Fredrick fielded the ball and apparently stepped on the bag (just about everyone in the park thought he touched the base). But the umpire suddenly threw down his hands and called Taylor safe. Barr popped out to end the inning but Meyer's run made it 3-0. THE BULLDOGS added another run in the fourth when Roeber singled and came around on an error, wild pitch and another bad throw. Algona iced it with four in the fifth, Roeber, who had entered the game replacing Bob Faroham, slashed another hit for two runs and Espe's double to deep left scored two more, The win was Algona'* 11th of tho yoar against two losses and they've sjot a crack at the school record of 19-3 sot by last yoara club. Bancroft will enter the game with an 18-1 mark, its only loss to the same Twin Rivers team when Logue threw a no-hitter at them. After losing their first six of seven games, the Pirates won 11 of their next 13 games until losing Monday.
