EAST MOLINE - Damy Jacobs tost a shutout in the f**i, but it mattered little as the Silver Streaks nailed down regional tournament honors vitii a M victory over the PrtnetviBe Princes here Thur»> day sftietiwon. The victory in the title game earned the Silver Streaks a berth in the sectional tournament at Canton next week. Coach Bob Bcal's charges will take an impressive 18-2 season record into sectional action, playing their first game against Canton Wednesday afternoon. Gaksfcurg now has won 16 straight games. Seal pointed out that the longest streak by one of his teams is 17 and that the longest en record is it the year before he took ever in Jacobs, who hid : a- letter for five innings and a shutout for six, Doostea nis season recoro to W. Jacobs fanned 11 and walked only one while allowing four hits. His control was near per* feet as he threw a minimum of pitches. In the first inning all of Jacob's pitches were strikes except one, as he retired ths side in order. His only trodMe-came in the sixth inning when the Princes scored two runs on a. single, double, fielder's choice and foul fly. It was raining hard at the time and Coach Beat went to the mound to settle down the Streak righthander. "I told him to throw strikes but not to get in a hurry," Beal said. ''You don't hurry things with a 5-0 lead. If the game has to be called the score reverts back to the last full inning." Louie Vitali swung the big bat for the Silver Streaks yesterday, pounding out a double and triple in two official appearances. The Galesburg 4 Gd!t;tf^:R^ lit... , :.ffj<toy*.Moy^^ # ;1SiyjFl> rightfielder drove in three runs ana scoreu one. Catcher Mark Thiel had just One hit in four trips to the plate but it was a double. He ma credited with three runs batted in for the day. Leadoff man Kevin Jackson, third baseman, had two hits in four official trips and one RBI. The first hit off Jacobs was of the scratch infield variety and involved a controversial decision by the official scorer. However, the Princes added a hit in the sixth and a pair in the 2-run seventh. Galesburg jumped out with a pair of runs in the top of the first and alter two scoreless innings picked up single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth. The weather was threatening the entire game and it really started to rain in the seventh, especially the bottom half of the inning. OalMbutf .

Streak tennis coach Bob Gruba looks for Hinsdale Central to repeat as state tennis champion but says Galesburg could easily be in contention if the Streak representatives are champions in their divisions. Dave Parker appears to be a definite possibility, for state singles champ. Although he was eliminated in the semifinals in last year's meet, Parker has not lost a single match so far this season. "I would say the odds are for it," states Gruba on Parker's chances for the state title. "He has either defeated the top players in the state or defeated the players who have defeated the top players," says Gruba. Other top singles players at the tourney are Jon Powell of Highland Park, Bill James of f ierling, Dick Hainline of Rock Island and Starret of Hinsdale Central. Parker has beaten James and Hainline three times each this year and Starret once but has not met Powell. Gruba also thinks Mark Parker and Halpern have a shot at the doubles crown. "I think we have a good doubles team," he says, "and we have a good chance of finishing in the top 10." During the season Parker and Halpern won 11 matches while falling to defeat in only two. They will face stiff competition in their bid for the doubles championship. Cubs Victorious In Little League The Cubs defeated the Dodgers 7-6 in the only little League game played at 0. N. Custer Park Thursday evening. The Cubs now lead the National League with a 3-0 record. Mike Holt was the winning pitcher for the Cubs. Denis Boylson took the loss. Jeff Galloway went three for three at the plate for the Dodgers, and Tracy Sibley got two hits in three times at bat for the Cubs.

Only the first game of a scheduled doubleheader was played because of rain. The doubleheader had originally been postponed from Wednes day, also because of rain. The victory upped the Charg ers' over-all record to 13 wins against seven defeats for the season. Sandburg tied for second in the Arrowhead Conference with a 7-3 mark. Coach Jim Isaacson's charges had to come from behind to wrap up the win in their last game of the year. Spoon River brought in one run in the top of the first inning to take the early lead. However, Spoon River was then held scoreless for the remainder of the game J Sandburg was unable to score until the fourth frame. The Chargers brought two runs across home plate to take the lead for good. Adding one run in the fifth inning and four runs in the sixth, the Chargers came out on top 7-1. Righhander Gary Woodson picked up the win for the Chargers, while Gilson of Spoon River was credited with the loss.

MOOSE TALES by MOOSI JOHNSON After spring has finally sprung, fishing reports are getting better. A couple of weeks ago we failed to mention the catch made by Jim Churn, a local construction worker. Jim, unable to work because of weather conditions, tried the art of fishing at Lake Storey. His venture proved successful as he made a catch of nine beautiful crappies, averaging close to a pound apiece. Barry Stein from Leo Stein's reported that Sue and Gary Seehawer hit 34 nice bluegills and 10 bass from Oak Run. Gary is project engineer for Oak Run. They made their catch using Mepps Spinners. Oak Run, to our estimation, has the possibilities of being just short of tremendous from now on. Talking with Lauren Fisher, we learned that he and son John have already been hitting the catfish from Henderson Creek. Using minnows, chubs, and cut chubs they've been nailing 4 and 5 pounders. We heard via the grapevine that Harry Davis, Junior High teacher, has been hitting some sizeable bluegills from the Victoria Stripmine area. Gale Ward contest leaders for May are Auggie Gatt leading the bass category with a 6 pound, 14 ouncer. Auggie made his catch from a farm pond using a black worm. Ray Fritsch is the leader for bluegill with one weighing 15 ounces. Young Dick Ryden Jr., grandson of Ernie Ryden, retired Register-Mail printer, tops the crappie division with one weighing 11 ounces. Ryden Jr., made his catch from a farm pond. Just before Ryden's catch was recorded, another young man, John Totten registered one weighing 10 ounces. John fished at Lake Bracken. Lyman In man heads the catfish catches with a 7 pound, 14 ouncer caught on a Rapala from a farm pond. Harold L. Bryan reported a bass weigh­ ing 5 pounds, 2 ounces caught from a farm pond on a Mepps Spinner. Joe June scored with a 6 pound, 7 ounce bass, also caught in a farm pond using the old reliable, Mepps and a bass strip. Auggie Gatt toads the bass division at Dom's Sport Center with a 7 pounder. Ray Fritsch registered a 14-ounce bluegill to top this category. Other catches reported at Dom's were a 5 pouftd,* 8 ounce bass by Pete Reynolds from an Alexis area farm pond using a Rapala. Pete Unger caught a 6 pound, 4 ounce channel cat from an area creek. We might mention that fish show a difference in weights at various places of registrations. This is due to shrinkage. We would advise that when a fish of a braggin* size is caught that it be either frozen as soon as possible or wrapped in a wet towel, rug or rag. Fishermen from the Abingdon area can report r ,their catches at Winkler's Family Sports Center. After a visit with them they have agreed to pass on to us reported catches from this area. t Wants More Money LOS ANGELES (UPlV Johnny Rodgers, the flashy flanker from Nebraska ' and winner of the 1972 Heisman Trophy, has decided to play professional football in Canada for more money. The 21-year-old Rodgers^ who was a No. 1 draft pick of the San Diego Chargers, said he will sign a contract today with the Montreal Alouettes !o'f the Canadian Football League. He did not reveal the terms but there was speculation he would get in the neighborhood of $100,000 a season plus fringe benefits. A spokesman said the offer accepted by Rodgers was "80 to 100 per cent larger" than' the last offer made by J the Chargers.
