<lo.) Upp«r DM Moirw Tuttdoy, Jun* 14, 1966 Bulldogs Dipped 5-1; First Loss Of Season The first defensive collapse of the current campaign, plus timely hitting by Hampton, led to the first loss of the season for Algona's Bulldogs here Friday night. The visitors posted a 5-1 victory, ending Algona's four-game'victory skein. The win kept Hampton unbeaten in four outings and also allowed the winners to remain on top in the North Central Conference race with a 3-0 mark. Algona is now 2-1 in the loop. Coach Keith Christie's team will attempt to get back in the win column this evening (Tuesday) with a trip to Clear Lake. Friday, the locals hit the road again, going to Clarion, then host Marshalltown in the first half of a split doubleheader here at 4 p. m. Saturday. Garrigan will meet Marshalltown at8p.m. the same day. Four errors in the first three innings, plus a pair of Hampton blows, kept starting pitcher Larry Scobba of the Bulldogs in hot water. The visitors used two of the miscues in the top of the first for a run as Tidman reached second on one error, then scored with two out on another bobble. Algona's third error in the second didn't hurt Scobba, but the fourth error in the top of the third gave the visitors a chance to score. With one out, an error and two base hits loaded the bases. A throw from right field by Gary Barr kept Hampton from scoring on the second hit and Dale Teeter fired a strike to. catcher' Dave Martin to halt another bid. Scobba then got a strikeout for out number three. A walk to Rog Barr, who went to second on a ground out and third on a steal, gave the Bulldogs a chance in the home half of the third, but a strikeout ended it. Craig Espe took over for Scobba in the top of the fourth. He hit the first batter and walked the second. A strikeout preceded a hit by Tidman and another fine throw by Barr halted a run. However, a walk forced in a counter and hits by McDowell and Patton sent in three more. Scobba returned to the hill in the fifth and set down the final nine Hampton batters in succession. A walk to Scobba and base knock by Gary Barr with one out gave Algona life in the last of the fifth, but two strikeouts thwarted the bid. The locals shattered the shutout in the final frame on a walk to Teeter, single by Scobba and a fielder's choice. Espe turned in a fielding gem in the seventh when he went down over the hill in left and captured a long fly off the batt of Juncker.

Dodge A five-run rally in the top of the third inning went to waste as Garrigan's Golden Bears allowed Ft. Dodge high school to score in four frames in dropping a 9-6 decision to the Dodgers there Friday evening. The loss was the fifth for Coach Duane Kramer's outfit. The Bears have won four. Barring weather complications (and there have been plenty), the locals had three games on tap this week. The Bears were slated to travel to Mason City for a meeting with the Mohawks Monday, then host St. Edmond here Tuesday (tonight) at 8 p. m. and Marshalltown here Saturday at 8. The Dodgers started fast Friday, jumping off to a 4-0 lead on a barrage against starter BUI Milder of the Bears. Don Potthoff relieved Milder during the frame and hurled the balance of the contest. Garrigan got back in the contest and went ahead, 5-4, in the third as Potthoff walked, Milder reached on a fielder's choice, Denny Long singled, Joe Becker walked, Tom Wagner singled, Mike Lickteig and Chuck Geilenfeld walked and Eischen slammed a one-baser. Ft. Dodge came right back, getting a pair in the bottom of the third to lead 6-5, but the final Garrigan run in the fourth knotted the count before the Dodgers got a single counter in the fourth and two in the sixth. . Long was the leading sticker for -the Bears with three hits in four tries.

Big Night At Stock Races The weatherman didn't cooperate, sending chilly temperatures and cool winds into the area, but the drivers were real hot as the smallest crowd of the season watched a fine program of stock car races here Friday night, Fans who stayed away missed a bushel basket full of thrills as Don Hilbert captured the feature to climax the program. They'll go at it again this Friday, with warm»ups slated at 8 and the first race at 8; 30 p.m. And at least six races will be on the schedule, plus a powder pull derby (featuring women drivers), which is sure to be fun. Some of the fans weren't even in their seats Friday when the excitement began. Bud Petersen, who has been driving here since the track opened in 1960, was making his first appearance driving the Mary Gangstead <?ar from Bancroft. He hit a slick spot during warm-ups and rattled the guard rail in front of the grandstand. The car was repaired and he returned to the B-feature later. Gene SchattSchneider, point leader so far, managed to outlast a late challenge by Hilbert to take the first heat, with Willie Kluss edging Orie Shipler and Freddie Funk to take the second. The third heat win went to Don Doocy, with Greg White second and Darreld Bunkofske third. The trophy dash went to Hilbert for the second time in three weeks, with Schattschneider second and Funk third in a good drive, then Hilbert passed Funk late In the 2 (Map wind-up to win, with Kluss third. Gary Hill of Clarion was pretty well shaken up on the third lap of the second heat when his car rolled sideways several times in the north turn. The car was smashed, but Hill apparently was not injured." In the next heat race, Rich Yeoman, Algona, plowed into the guard rail in front of the grandstand and carried two large pieces of it with him to the number one turn before stalling out. There were only two re-starts despite the numerous mishaps and spin- outs.
