12-Algeria (la.) Upper Des Moinei Tuttdoy, May 23, 1967 Bulldog Comeback Is Vital In 6-2 Victory Four Hurt, Friday Crash LuVerne nicked Algona High's ace lefty, Craig Espe, for a pair of first inning runs, but the Bulldogs then settled down and posted a 6-2 win on a very chilly night at LuVerne Friday. The fray was the season opener for the Bulldogs, who have 22 more on the slate, not counting tournament action. The same teams tangle again this Thursday, with game time set at 4:30 on the local high school diamond. Friday's contest was originally slated for afternoon, then postponed to evening, in hopes strong winds would abate. A double by LuVerne hurler Rog Hansen, following a walk to Will, and a single by Doug Nelson, which plated Hanson, gave the Lions their runs in the home half of the first inning. Algona got one run back in the second, thanks to a long triple by Don Hagen, who turned in a good job behind the plate handling Espe's slants. Smokey Barr, who reached on an error, scored the run. Tom Claude opened the third for the Bulldogs when~he reached on an error and was promptly sent home with the tying run when Rog Meyer cracked a double. Bob Farnham and Tom Jones then walked, loading the sacks, with Meyer scoring on a passed ball and Farnham on Barr's long sacrifice fly to make it 4-2. Algona's final pair of counters came in the seventh. Espe walked and Claude, Meyer and Farnham notched singles for the counters. Espe, who was 15-0 last season, allowed five hits Box score: ALGONA (6) Espe, p. Claude, 2b. Meyer, 3b. Farnham, If. Pedersen, rf. Roeber, rf. Barr, ss. Jones, Ib. Hagen, c. Boldridge, cf. J.
