14-Algono, (to.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, July 11, 1967 Forfeit, 7-1 Win Give Bulldogs Loop BB Title W (IK What was supposed to be a 10- iiining doubleheader with Webster City Friday came out as a 41/2- inning warm-up, with the Algona Bulldogs winning, 7-1, after a Webster City forfeit of the other contest, which gave the locals the North Central Conference championship with an 11-1-1 record. The games were scheduled to start at five o'clock, but the Lynx had tire trouble with one of the small buses hauling players and coaches near Goldfield. The second contest finally did get going at 7:30. It didn't take southpaw Craig Espe long to get hot. Craig whiffed 12 weary Lynx batters in the shortened fray. In fact, the only Lynx batter not to fan from the undefeated Espe was Al Larson, who was also the only one to hit Espe. The Bulldogs scored four runs off three hits in the second inning to take a 4-0 lead. Tom Jones banged out a big triple to score Taylor, and Espe knocked in Don Hagen and Bill Boldridge, who had walked. Jones scored on a passed ball. Algona got another run in the third and two final tallies in the fourth to round out the scoring. Dave Roeber led the attack with two singles while Craig Taylor added a double, and Espe and Meyer managed singles for Algona's six hits. Webster City got a run as the field darkened rapidly in the tip of the fifth inning. The score came after a passed ball and an error by catcher Don Hagen, who overthrew third base when the Lynx's Dave Olson attempted to steal. Olson came home on the play. Espe picked up his tenth win against no losses as he walked only two batters. Lynx pitcher, Oswald, struck out two and walked four. The next bit of action for Coach Christie's hustlers will be in the Sectional Tournament here Wednesday against Mallard.

A Powder Puff Derby, second this season, is on the slate as a special event this Friday night, according to Kossuth Speedway Manager Dwight Cook. Friday's large field of cars wound up smaller than the original force due to a series of near-blockbusting mishaps. Fortunately, none of the drivers involved were even shaken up. Schattschneider's would-be win in the B-feature was weird —to say the least. He piloted his car to the best time trial of the evening, a :19.1! clocking, and had no trouble at all winning the trophy dash, despite a re-start that closed the gap between him and the field for a lap or so. The B-feature got underway with Schattschneider near the rear of a 12-car field. He was battling for first after one lap - when his right front wheel bounced off. Officials black- flagged him (which retires the car from the race) because of the loss of the wheel (although other cars have finished races previously in a similar condition) - but Gene claimed after the run to victory that he didn't see the flag at all. Hardly anyone in the stand saw the flag, either, possibly because everyone was amazed at the drive to the checkered flag by Schattschneider in the injured auto. At any rate, first was awarded to Kabrick in number 22. Del Stokey, popular Ames driver, copped the feature and a heat race, while Roy Peltz and Butch Householder managed to win the other heats, A 3-car sandwich in the straightaway during the first heat turned out all right, but a pair of mishaps in the next run didn't turn out so well. Jim Edgington slammed into the wall on the northwest turn, then Shiney Hilbert flipped hard off the south end of the backstretch straightaway. Both cars were badly damaged. LuVerne 18-0 Victor Friday LuVerne thumped Meservey- Thornton at Thornton Friday evening, 18-0, as Doug Nelson and Denny Barber combined to hurl a near-perfect five-inning contest, which ended with the 10-rim rule in effect. The Lions, under Coach Sherm Arends, are now 6-5 for the season and 5-3 in the North Star Conference. LuVerne needed only nine hits to count its 18 runs, with Barber getting a pair and Hanselman, Hanson, Nelson, Trauger, Will, Dale Schipull and Selby getting one each. The winners counted one run in the first, four in the second, two in the third, eight in the fourth and three in the fifth. Nelson hurled the first three innings, striking out four of the nine men he faced, and Barber was perfect through the fourth, then allowed a trio of walks in the fifth. Nelson hurled the first three innings, striking out four of the nine men he faced, and Barber was perfect through the fourth, then allowed a trio of walks in the fifth. Win Second After dropping their first four contests, Algona High's fresh- sophs came up with their second straight victory, a 12-2 decision over Clear Lake here Thursday. Dave Lowman hurled the win for the locals - his second of the campaign. pj na | p a j r . R ecort j Garrigan's Golden Bears ran their season record to 8-6 (and posted their third straight win) with a resounding 13-2 win over Burt behind the pitching of John Winkel here Friday night. The locals, who dumped Britt, 8-1, two nights earlier behind the no-hit pitching of John Mertz, amassed 11 hits on their way to the Burt victory. Coach Steve McCall's club scored all its runs in the first four innings in the Burt victory. Garrigan is slated to open Sectional Tournament play against West Bend here Wednesday night at 8 p.m., immediately after the Algona-Mallard fray. Possible Shot For Wrestlers, World Tourney Two of three Algona wrestlers, coached by Dave Martin, ex- Algona High great, wound up second in a recent tournament at Waterloo. They were Don Camp, 154, and Phil Bode, 165. Bruce Bennett, 1G5, won half of four matches in the meet. Camp registered three falls, won one match on a default and then posted a decision to wind up second, while Bode also pinned three opponents and got a decision on his way to second. The trio won 11 matches during the June 30-July 1 meet, with seven coming on falls. Wrestlers who qualified will travel to another meet, possibly in Michigan, later, and qualifiers there will train for two weeks at Great Lakes Naval Training Station before going to Bulgaria for the Junior World Championship .Meet. mnmMUUUUUumnnnnfinnnnm PeeWee - Saints 9, Astros 6; Astros 13, Saints 9; American - Yankees 19, Tigers 9; Yankees 10, Orioles 7; National- Cards 13, Phillies 7.

LuVerne Walks Past Algona 4-2 Wednesday Algona's Bulldogs sustained their second straight defeat (following 12 wins) at LuVerne Wednesday night when the Lions registered a 4-2 win. The victory upped LuVerne's season mark to 5-5. Roger Ilansen allowed five hits in going the route for the winners, who collected the same number of blows from the slants of Roeber and Pedersen. Eacli club scored once in the second and LuVerne wrapped it up when throe men walked home in the third. Algona's final counter came in the top of the fifth. Signs Contract Paul Seiler of Algona, recent graduate of Notre Dame and starting offensive tackle for the Fighting Irish last fall, was signed Saturday by the New York Jets of the American Football League. Seiler, who played lu'gh school football at Garrigan here, was the Jets*s number one draft choice. The 255-pound tackle is slated to report to the Jets' training camp in Peekskill, N. Y. .Wednesday before getting ready for the Ail-Star game in Chicago. Hurt In Pool A member of the swimming team representing the Algona pool at Emmetsburg in a meet, Tim Clark, had his wind knocked out and had to be pulled from the pool at Emmetsburg last Wednesday evening.
