Burt, Algona Meet For Sectional Baseball Title Burt and Algona high school emerged as winners in the second round of the Sectional Baseball Tournament at Garrigan Field Saturday night. The two schools were to play for the sectional crown Monday night at Garrigan. Right-hander Phil McFarland's sharp pitching led the Burt Bears to an 8-1 victory over the Swea City Trojans in the first game of the evening. McFarland, battling a 96 degree temperature, had a no- hitter going until the Trojans managed two singles in the last of the seventh. He whiffed 13 and walked four enroute to the victory. Coach Al Kloppen's Bears got on the Scoreboard early when Bob Lovstad doubled, went to third on a long fly by Doc Cunningham and scored on Bob Ortman's single. Ortman added another run on an error to conclude the two-run inning. Burt scored again in the second when Howard Batt singled, stole second and crossed the plate on a two-base error. The Bears pushed the score to 5-0 in the sixth inning as McFarland singled, Lovstad reached on an error and Cunningham drove them both in with a clutch single. Three Trojan errors in the seventh led to three Bear runs as Patterson, Joe Fries and Doug Black singled. Swea City scored its lone run in the last of the seventh. Pitcher Tom Elliott singled, moved to second on an error, third on a balk, and scored on Van Norlin's single. Elliott took the loss for Swea City, giving up 8 hits, striking out 7 and walking 2.

Sweltering temperatures and heavy fog; 13 Algona hits and mosquitoes estimated at 3 Ibs., provided the entertainment. The game was held up for 20 minutes after the fourth inning when plate umpire Connie Goodman could only count two Britt players on the field (including the catcher) as heavy fog rolled in. Play resumed again at 10:20 when the diamond looked more like Garrigan Field and less like San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Actually the excitement provided by the elements overshadowed a no-hit pitching job by Algona'sCraig Espe and Larry Scobba. Add an inside-the-park run and booming triple by Bulldog Roger Meyer and you still saw a lot of good baseball. Algona catcher Dave Martin led off the game in good fashion with a solid double and promptly stole third. Tom Claude walked, stole second and both runners scored when Meyer's hard-hit ball to right field was bobbled. Meyer raced home on first sacker Bill Farnham's bingo to put the score at 3-0. In the third inning, Meyer started a three-run scoring binge when the Britt center fielder lost his long blast in the lights. Meyer came home standing up for his inside-the-park job. Farnham followed with a single, as did Scobba, and scored on a wild pitch. Scobba was out at the plate on an attempted steal. Dale Teeter walked and stole second. A passed ball moved him to third and he raced home on another wild pitch. The Bulldogs ran the count to 7-0 in the fourth. Claude walked and scored on Meyer's deep triple. After the fog episode, Teeter singled sharply to left, moved to second on Bill Boldridge's sacrifice bunt and came home on Martin's second double of the night. Martin got to third on an error and made the score 9-0 on a single by Claude. After being blanked in the sixth, Coach Keith Christie's fog- fighters concluded their scoring binge with two in the seventh. Espe was credited with the win, running his record to 10-0. The nifty left-hander struck out six in three innings, while walking one. Scobba came in at the bottom of the fourth and kept the no- hitter intact.

Humboldt and the Twins are slated to meet for the tourney championship tonight (Tuesday) at 8 p.m. In games played earlier, St. Joe downed Wesley, 8-5, Humboldt bested the Algona Braves, 9-5, and Twins up-ended Whittemore, 6-1.

Edgington In 2 Wins Here, Stock Races Jim Edgington leaped back into first place in the season point standings at Kossuth Speedway here Friday night with a well- earned victory in the feature before a. warm and appreciative crowd. His win was capped by a victory by Dick Yeoman in a brand new event - a Roll Over Tournament. While Yeoman has rolled stock cars before, this marked the first time he ever won a title for doing it. A drawing for a 1961 Plymouth 4-door, compliments of Percival Motors here, will be a feature of the program at the track this Friday night. Edgington grabbed two wins Friday. His victory in the feature came after a struggle to pass Dick Simpson, which he did late in the trophy dash, which he also would have won, except he had to slow almost to a stop to avoid a crash with the sliding car of Greg White on the next to last lap. White went on to take the trophy. Other heat winners were White and Willie Kluss, while Ronnie Douglas copped the B-feature, an event that had only three entries. One of the most thrilling finishes ever seen here came in the trophy dash. White and Edgington finished less than a foot apart, with Simpson not far behind. There were a total of three re-starts, a result of minor skirmishes between cars. White dropped out of contention in the feature when he lost a wheel in the front straightaway on the fourth lap. Yeoman and Fritz Harris were the Roll Over entrants. Harris couldn't get his big sedan to go over off a ramp, but Yeoman did it on the second try. Results:White, Hilbert, Schattschneider; second heat: Edgington, Peltz, Petersen; third heat: Kluss, Hovinga, Weber; trophy dash: White, Edgington, Simpson; B-feature: Douglas, Anderson, Harris; feature: Edgington, Simpson, Peltz.
