10-Algono la.) Upper Dei Moln«t Thursday, June 29, 1967 Becker Hurls GHS Jo 4-3 W-B Win SPORTS Garrigan, 7-0 victor over West Bend a week earlier here, repeated the win, but by a very narrow 4-3 margin there Monday night. The victory tipped the Golden Bears' season mark to 5-4 - and came as a result of a pair of 2-run Innings early in the contest. Coach Steve McCall's club was slated to travel to Mason City for a meeting with the Mohawks Wednesday, then will go to Fort Dodge for a game with St, Edmond Friday and to Cylinder Monday where the Bears will tangle with Emmetsburg. Actually, the Garrigan-West Bend game was well-pitched all the way, with Joe Becker of the Bears besting the Bulldogs, a club he tossed a no-hitter against June 19. Al Blair, loser of the earlier meeting, was also the loser in this one. A walk to John Winkel, errors on balls hit by Becker and John Mertz, a fielder's choice, hit batsman and single by Don Courtney shoved two runs home in the top of the first. A single by McGuire, hit batsman, error arid single by Jack Muller chased in two more in the Bears' liall of the second and it totaled four, enough for victory. West Bend countered with two in the home half of the second and one in the last of the third. The first pair came on a walk, followed by doubles off the bats of Metzger and Bleuer, and the third inning tally was the result of a walk, an error and a single by Bonnstetter. Becker whiffed eight and walked six, while Blair struck out 13 and walked three. The Bears outhlt the losers, 5-4.

The game will not be completed - unless Its outcome has a bearing on the final North Central Conference standings, which Algona tops at the present time with a 7-0-1 record. Coach Keith Christie's club was slated to travel to Eagle Grove Wednesday and to Clear Lake Friday, then will host Hampton here Monday in another trio of loop frays. Length of the contest at Iowa Falls was not the only item that made it an oddity. Perhaps more outstanding was the fact that Craig Espe, who has fired six no-hitters in his last two seasons, did it again for nine Innings and Dale Pedersen didn't allow a hit in the tenth, so the Iowa Falls bats were silenced all the way. The Cadet's lone counter came in the home half of the fourth when Espe hit Bach and walked Dittmer, with the latter scoring on an Infield tap. Algona scored first - getting its run in the first go-around at the plate - then saw nine goose eggs tacked up in a row. Espe walked to start the game and later scored after a bingle by Tom Claude. Rog Meyer sent the run home with a fly to left. Strikeouts came fast in tills one, with Iowa Falls hurling chalking up 21 Bulldogs and Espe getting 18 Cadets in his nine frames. He allowed two walks and Pedersen one. The Bulldogs chalked up a double play in the last of the tenth. Claude and Pedersen got Algona's two hits - both singles.

The loss left LuVerne with a 3-2 loop mark and 3-4 season mark. The Lions out-hit the winners, 10-8, with Denny Hanselman going 4-for-4 at the plate. Barber got a pair of blows and Hansen, Nelson, Trauger and Selby one each. Doug Nelson hurled the first five frames for LuVerne, with Hansen finishing and taking the loss. Weber went all the way on the hill for Sheffield. Sheffield counted two runs in the fourth, two in the sixth, one in the eighth and three in the ninth, while the Lions scored two in the first, one in the sixth, one in the seventh and one in the eighth. A promising LuVerne rally, one which might have won the contest in the bottom of the seventh, ended when Nelson sent a screaming liner to center with the bases loaded, one run in and two out. The catch was made for the final out. Each team committed one error in the field. St. John's Is 10-0 Following Monday Win Bancroft St. John's got out- hit, 3-2, but took advantage of wildness by pitchers and sloppy play in the field to post a 4-3 Those who know MINNEAPOLIS Know ; ~ ' MOTOR HOTEL For Convenience ...

New Pool At West Bend Is Short $1,660 At recent meetings of the town council with the swimming pool committee, arrangements for opening and for the operation of West Bend's swimming pool have been discussed and will be made public as they become definite. Work at the pool site has progressed at a surprising rate in spite of many rainy days. It is believed now that the pool will be ready for use within a month. With a $66,000 appropriation from the town of West Bend for the pool, plus contributions in the amount of $10,346.92 from individuals, organizations and business firms, there is still a balance of $1,600 to be raised before the pool can be opened.
