:< 1 The Algona tipper Bes Moines, Algona, Iowa, Aug. 9, 1938 BANCROFT WINS ONE.LOSESTWO IN STATE MEET Is Third in State Junior Legion Baseball Tourney Bancroft's Northwest Iowa Junior Legion champions went dawr. before Ottumwa 9 to 3 In the final game of the state tournament at Rockwell City Friday. Although they lost two out pf three games, the Kossuth courtly 'team waa one of the favorite of the tourney and dangerous until the last out. Against Ottumwa in the finals Bancroft gbt off to a bad start Immediately when Art Loats, ace hurler from Titonka, was off form and •waa blasted for five runs in the first Inning. Ottumwa scored again In the fifth and two runs In the seventh to bring its total to eight before Bancroft could tally. After seven scoreless Innings Bancroft finally got to Bates in the eighth frame. Bancroft's two hits and an Ottumwa error brought in the Kossuth team's first run and Bates gave way to a relief hurler. Jimmy Crisswell. With two on and none out the stage was set for a typical Bancroft big inning but Bancroft hitters were checked, although * pair of walks, an error and a fielder's choice let in two more runs for the Koasuth county boys. Outside of that Inning there was little to cheer Bancroft. Wayne Christiansen made three straight sparkling fielding efforts to retire Ottumwa in the eighth inning, but the damage was already beyond repair. Bancroft Wins Second In the second game of the tournament Bancroft was defeated by Cedar Rapids, last year's cham- plons, 8 to 1. Cedar Rapids scored lt« eight runs on eight hits while Bancroft could make Its five blows food for only one tally. The Kossuth county team's run was scored on a single handed effort by Vern Nelson, Algona boy playing with the Bancroft team. Nelson singled, stole second and took third and home on overthrows. Leon Johnson held Cedar Rapids scoreless In the last four Innings of the contest but the Rapids nine had already massed the offerings of Godfredson and Lloyd for eight runs Riving It enough of a lead to coast along with the pressure on Ban croft. In only the first game of the tournament in which Bancroft shel lacked Irwln 8 to 1 did the Kos •, rath champions show the power which won for them the district and Intrr-distrlct titles. Big Third Inning After getting away to a two run lead in the first inning, the Kossuth sluggers batter around In the third scoring four runs in the process. Ted Langenfeld, who later pitched and lost a no hit game to Cedar Rapids was no mystery to Bancroft which combed his offer- Ings for 11 hits and seven runs In his six Innings of mound duty. Art Loats, husky Titonka boy playing with Bancroft, was the winning hurler. He was also charget with a loss during the series so had a .500 average. In the final standings of the four teams Bancroft ranked third in games won and lost. Ottumwa, the champion, won all three of its encounters, Cedar Rapids, last year's tltir'st won, two and lost one and Ir- All-Star K.Bali Team Defeats Brownies All-Stars, picked from the municipal diamondball league proved that their first Softball victory over the Brownies was no fluke by trouncing the ball team again, Monday night, this time 12 to 6. The Brownies, with an all regular line-up got a run lead in the first inning but it didn't last long enough to worry the All-Stars for they blasted in seven runs in the first half of the second and virtually put the game on ice. During the rest Of the game both teams scored five HIPS apiece, chiseling out a run or a pair at a time, but the Stars' big second inning gave them a nice margin on which to work. Both teams hit the ball hard with the Starry ten walloping Boldridge's offerings especially solidly. Classy Brownie fielding helped keep the score as low as it was. The Brownies in turn were connecting solidly with the All-Star pitching but the D-ball stars' field- Ing suffered little in comparison with the Brownies' nifty work and Siepman working five innings for the Stars, kept safe blows fairly- well scattered granting 4 runs in 5 Innings. The All-Stars line-up was as follows: R. Medin, H. Medln, Ahmsn, Bruns, Sheckler, Poindexter, Rising. Wittcopf, Johnson, Siepman and Stoltenbergy Brownies Prepare For Semi-Pro Meet With a victory over the Kingsbury team to cheer them on their way the Algona Brownies arc ready for the national semi-pro tournament. They will stop for a game with the Storm Lake White Caps first on Wednesday and then seek their fortune at the national meet. Another score was settled by the Brownies when they defeated the Kingsbury team of Des Moines 4 to 3 Sunday night under the lights at the Algona baseball park. The Des Moines team had defeated the Brownies in their first home gamo under the lights and this was also the rubber game of the series. The second largest crowd of the season was on hand to Brownies do their stuff see and the the colored boys came through to win the game In the seventh Inning. Kingsbury scored in the second and the fourth frames to lead 3 to 1, going into the last half of the seventh. In that inning Richard White, leading off for Algona, singled and Huston also singled sending White to third. He scored a minute later when Young grounded out to first. Fagan singled to score Huston. Morgan, the clown, turned pitched, aced, sending Fagan to third from where the winning run was scored a minute later when Warren grounded out. Kingsbury scored another run in the ninth inning to keep the ball game interestlrj; but its rally was cut short. One of the real features of the game was the pitching of Morgan, who scattered seven hits to gain the highly creditable 4 to 3 decision. Has Malaria Fever Armstrong: Mrs. P. C.

Pauline Zender and Bonnie Bonar were to play for the third place bronze medal. Partly because of the small entry list the women's tournament has been played off faster than the other two.
