Thursday night, returned and received a real old- fashioned welcome from many Bancroft area residents who formed a caravan and escorted the club home from the junction of highways 169 and 9 late Friday night. Bancroft's second loss in the Region 6 tourney came at the hands of West AIHs, Wise., 8-2, Thursday. It was also the second loss in a row after the surprising outfit from the state's hottest baseball town had won its first three starts in the meet. The Kossuth youngsters dumped Anchorage, Alaska, 6-2, St. Paul, 11-8, and Omaha, 9-8, in their first three outings at Mandan and were the only unbeaten team in the field when they tangled with St. Paul a second time Tuesday night Aug. 21. St. Paul took a 3-0 lead in 1M> innings when rain halted play until the next night. Bancroft came back with a 4-run rally in the bottom of the second to lead, but single runs in the fifth and sixth frames, three runs in the seventh and sixth in the top of the ninth more than offset Bancroft's final two runs in the eighth. With Bancroft, St. Paul and West Allis all sporting 3-1 marks it was necessary to draw lots anc Bancroft then wound up playing West Allis Thursday. Bancroft drew first blood in the bottom of the first inning. Koger Hutchinson reached first on an OVATION FOR JUNIOR NINE with six. West Allis went on to win the Regional title Friday night and entered the National Tournament this week.
