In Friday; night action, Algona cracked out 10 hits for five runs behind Craig Espe's two- hit pitching. The Bulldogs scored two In the second on singles by Roger Meyer, Dale Teeter and Mark Conn, and added another run In the fifth on singles by Larry Scobba and Meyer. The final two Algona scores came In the sixth when Mark Conn walked, was sacrificed to second by Steve Hardy, and scored on an error. Dave Martin circled the bases on two throwing errors after he hit a dribbler in front of the plate. Twin Rivers scored its run in the seventh on four walks. The Pirates go to the sidelines with an 8-6 record. They won the Twin Lakes Conference with a mark of 6-1. Roger Clark and Rick Andersen got the only Twin Rivers hits. Garrigan found considerable opposition in the night-cap from a young, but spirited Burt club. Denny Long scored the first Garrigan run in the first on two errors and a stolen base. Joe Becker and Bill Milder scored the other Garrigan runs in the second as Long and Chuck Becker singled. Lou Bleich had little trouble handling the Burt batters. He struck out 8, but yielded a single and double to former Algona high wrestler Jim Redemske.
