ALGONA HI TO SECTIONAL FINAL 1,200 See Garrigan Bow In Pitcher's Battle Here Algona won the right to meet Forest City in the Sectional Tournament final by slipping past Garrigan, 2-1, in a thriller Monday night. Algona and Forest City were to meet at Garrigan Wednesday evening at 8:00. This year's roof-raiser even topped last year's game, which Algona won 3-1. About 1,200 enthusiastic fans - an SRO crowd filled the bleachers and lined the first and third baselines to witness a sixth-inning Garrigan score that sent the contest into an extra Inning, and an eighth Inning RulJdog run that settled it. STEVE HARDY BILL MILDER Skip Perkins put Algona on the Scoreboard in the first by singling, moving to second when Roger Meyer was hit by a pitch, and scampering home on an attempted pick-off play at second. Garrigan hurler Bill Milder caught Perkins too far off base and threw to second baseman Denny Long. But Perkins elected to head for third. Long's throw to Chuck Geilenfeld at third got past him and Perkins streaked home. Geilenfeld tied it in the sixth after he walked, was sacrificed to second and scored on Joe Becker's solid single to rleht, with a throw by Gary Barr narrowly missing the hustling Geilenfeld. With excitement mounting in the seventh, Milder retired Mark Conn, Tom Claude and Steve Hardy. Then, in the bottom half of the seventh, Long took a half swing at Steve Hardy's 3 ball, two strike offering and foul-tipped it back to the screen. Plate umpire Leonard DeCamp ruled It ball four, failing to detect the foul. With two out, Dick Salz singled sharply to right, and Long, who had moved to second on a wild pitch, headed homeward with what might have been the winning Bear run had it not been for rightfielder Barr's perfect rifle throw to catcher Dan Gilmore. Gilmore nailed Long at the plate, sending the game into an extra Inning. Gilmore stepped Into the batter's box and blasted Milder's first pitch to the left field wall for a double. He stole third and Skip Perkins' sacrifice fly to center field allowed Gilmore to tag up and score the deciding run. Hardy faced trouble in the bottom of the eighth when Bill Reding and Dick Muller reached base on a walk and an error, but two of several fine plays by third baseman Roger Meyer forced Reding and Chuck Geilenfeld at second, and left fielder Larry Scobba hauled In Joe Becker's belt to end the game. Both Hardy and Milder threw well enough to deserve the win, but It was Hardy's mark which stayed untarnished at 5-0. He struck out 10 Bears and walked 8, Including four to Long. Joe Becker and Dick Salz got the only hits ,off Hardy. Milder's control was even better. He struck out 10 and walked-only two, giving up two singles to Perkins and the double to Gilmore. Coach Pat Daugherty finished his final season at Garrigan with a 14-3 record, the best ever by a Garrigan team. He will coach at Centerville Junior College next fall. Algona is now 14-5, Coach Keith Christie named left-hander Craig Espe to start Wednesday's Sectional title game. Box score: ALGONA D. Gilmore, c L. Scobba, If S. Perkins, cf R. Meyer, 3b D.
