The win gives Algona a 3-1 edge in the city series in recent years. And it advanced them into the second round of the sectional tournament against Britt Saturday night. The winner of this game meets the Burt-Swea City winner at 8 p.m. Monday night in the semifinals. Espe was magnificent as he struck out 11 batters. He retir?.: the side in order in five of the seven innings and in the last four. FIRST ROUND Algona 2 Garrigan 0 Burt 9 Sentral 3 Swea City 9, titonka 4 Burt, bye SECOND ROUND Saturday Burt vs. Swea City Algona vs. Britt SEMI-FINALS Monday Night, I p.m. Happy Bui I dogs! THE GAME wasn't an exciting one. There were few close plays and in fact, the last 26 men were retired in order for both teams. Garrigan's lone hit was an opposite field fly ball off the bat of Bear shortstop Lickteig that fell in front of Algona rightfielder Garry Barr and just past first baseman Tom Jone's glove. Jones was a surprise starter, replacing the Bulldogs' leading hitter, Bill Farnham. The latter was held out of the game for disciplinary reasons by Coach Keith Christie. Lickteig's hit came with two out and lie died on first when • sophomore Jack Muller became one 01 Eipe's 11 strikeout victims. Only other Garrigan base runner was opposing pitcher Bill Milder, who got to first when Espe couldn't field his squibber between first and the pitcher's mound. DENNY LONG sacrificed -Milder to second but Joe Becker struck out and alter that, Espe retired the next 12 men in order. He got fine help on his final two outs as Bulldog shortstop Dale Teeter made two great plays, going to his left, to throw out Dick Muller and Dick Salz in the seventh to end the game. Algona solved Milder's throws early and got all five of its base hits in the first two and two- thirds innings. The Bulldogs loaded the bases out to end the threat. Algona scored its first run in the second without benefit of a hit. Lickteig hobbled Teeter's grounder to open the frame and Dale stole second. Gary Barr, attempting to bunt Teeter to third, was out on a third-strike foul bunt attempt. But Teeter came home shortly after when Chuck Geilenfeld, Garrigan third baseman, threw wild to first on Bill Boldridge's slow grounder. Boldridge got to third but died there when Jones itruck out and Martin grounded out to third. ALGONA RAPPED out three hits in the third to score its last run and also brought on left- fielder Bill Reding to relieve Milder. With one out, Tom Claude singled off second baseman Long's glove. Meyer flied out but Scob- ba delivered a sharp blast through the pitcher's box and Teeter brought Claude home with another single over second. This brought on Reding and he did a magnificent job of pitching. He struck out Barr to end the threat and then retired the next dozen Bulldogs in order. In the process, he fanned seven men and allowed only one ball to be hit to the outfield. Reding was superb in every way but he was two runs behind at the start and that's the way ft ended. But with pitching predominat/ ing, this didn't have the drama that some of the other Bear-Bulldog meetings have had. It lasted just one hour and 25 minutes. For Espe, it was his 10th victory of the season and he's stil unbeaten. It will take a gooc ballclub to beat him. He has fine curve, good speed and keeps the ball low almost all the time He nicks:ithe,rcorner§ijand-Ssel dom puts anything good over the plate, hip high. The game was unusual in one respect. THERE WASN'T A WALK ISSUED BY ANY OF THE THREE PITCHERS IN THE GAME.

Eleven Bears went down on strikes but it took two fine fielding plays by shortstop Dale Teeter for the last two outs to preserve Espe's one-hitter.
