SPORTS Carroll Seniors Capture the State Crown MUSCATINE - Eric Siemer and Todd Pettitt came through again and Carroll captured its first State Senior Little League baseball championship here Friday afternoon with a tension-packed 3-0 victory over Beaverdale American of Des Moines. The Carroll All-Stars are playing Twin City, the Missouri state champion, at 5:00 p.m. today in first round play of the divisional tournament at Carrollton, Mo. The other first round game pitted Ellsworth Air Force Base of South Dakota against either the Wisconsin or Minnesota state champion. Siemer blasted a two-out, three-run homer to right field in the sixth inning off of Charlie Mikesell to give the Carroll All-Stars the victory. Mikesell, who retired the first 14 batters he faced before Tim Schoeppner'singled with two out in the fifth, got into trouble in the sixth. Ken Nurse led the inning off for Carroll with a single. The next batter, Tom Reiman, drilled what appeared to be another single to center, but Nurse was forced out at second base. ' Then Brad Edwards reached on an error before Siemer's blast that cleared the 275-foot mark by at least 100 feet. Pettitt was strong on the mound, scattering four hits, while striking out four to pick up his second tournament shutout win in three days. Beaverdale's only serious threat came in the second as Pettitt gave up a one-out single to Roger Goodrich and ••!••!•tltiltII Times Herald, Carroll, la.

Friday Carroll had an offense that produced 16 hits, while Ken Knight's pitching > and the Carroll defense limited Jefferson to four safeties. It was a complete turn-around Saturday, as the home squad could manage just one hit off Chris Wunder. That solitary hit came off the bat of Kevin Austrian in the first inning. Wunder performed three one-two-three innings for his Storm Lake visitors. A fielder's choice allowed run No. 1 to score in the second inning for Storm Lake. The second run came across in the fourth, as the visitors got three hits. ' The final two runs scored in the fifth 'on two hits and an error. All the starters picked up hits Friday for Carroll, with Bob Roetker leading the way with three singles. Knight helped his own cause, as the pitcher slugged a three-run home run in the second — part of the eight-run inning: Already leading 12-2, Carroll smashed out 10 runs in the. sixth, (they were, ruled to . be the visiting-team) to open upthe2&>runlead. •> * •« •- Coach Dale Hanson's defending district champs did little wrong in Friday's semi-final game. Knight started o.ut with a three up, three down inning in the first. He allowed 15 runners to reach base in the game, but 10 were stranded on the paths. Lonnie Brincks and Brian Loneman each managed three runs batted in and a pair of hits for Carroll. Loneman slugged a triple and Brincks and John Gradoville hit doubles. Kevin Schmidt managed the only Jefferson extra-base hit, a double. After putting two runners on base in the first inning Saturday, Carroll couldn't manage that again until the sixth. Brincks drew a walk with one out in the sixth and Ausman reached on an error, but the side was retired with Brincks on third and Ausman on first. Brincks was the only Carroll runner to go past firs^ base, as the centerfielder reached second in the first frame. Storm Lake, who beat Sac City, Breda and Sioux City Northside to reach the district finals, will represent District No. 1 in the state Little League meet in Fairfield Tuesday.
