Larry Scobba started and threw,, five scoreless innings before Roger Meyer finished up in the final two. Scobba improved his record to 5-0 as he held West Bend to one hit, a single to Barber in the second.

Singles by Scobba and Meyer helped get a single run in the third. Scobba led off the fifth with a home run, and the rest of the Bulldogs moved two more across before the side was out on two walks, a sacrifice, and a single by Martin.

Bullpups Win Finale Over Clear Lake 5- Algona's freshman-sophomore baseball team ended its season on a high note by defeating Clear Lake here Thursday night, 5-3. The win allowed Coach Jim Anderson's Bullpups to finish with a winning season of 5 wins, 4 losses and a tie. Clear Lake had beaten Algona 11-7 at Clear Lake last month, but this time the Bullpups got the job done. The Lions scored one in the first on a single and a triple, but Algona followed the Laker run with a three-run outburst of its own. All nine starters came to the plate; three walking, three scoring, and three left on base when the rally subsided. Don Hagen's single was the only hit of the inning. The 3-1 Algona lead vanished momentarily in the fifth when the Lions scored two runs on two hits and an error. But the 3-3 tie didn't last through the inning as Algona bounced right back with the last two markers of the game. Hagen's second single started things off, and a sacrifice, a walk and an error did the rest of the damage. Craig Taylor picked up another win as he went the full r seven innings. Roeber was the only Bullpup besides Hagen to get a hit. Season statistics show Hagen with the top batting average at .400.

Office Supply Dept, Upper Des Moines Pub. Co. One Hit Not Enough, Bulldogs Bow To Forest City Indians In Final SPORTS Algona (la.) Upper Das Molner Tuesday, July 20, 1965 He Did It Again! There were several smash-ups during the weekly program of hobby and modified stock car races at the fairgrounds here Friday night - with the mishap shown above taking the cake as the most serious. Rich Yeoman, Algona, who has now had three serious mishaps on area tracks during the current season, is shown climbing out of number 11 after it rolled and was smashed on the first turn after the start of the hobby feature. He was not hurt. Dick Lallier, one of the track stewards, is about to give Yeo- a hand, while at the left, Don Patton, who was ready with extinguisher in case a blaze occurred, set the exting- man a fire uisher into action when the bulb from the UDM camera lighted up the area for the picture.

S. 18 in Emmetsburg, Adams street to Superior street, Earlier the Commission awarded a contract for a new bridge over the Des Moines river and work on the bridge is beginning at once, Schattzie Wins Most Marbles Here Friday Gene Schattschneider, Algona, who is as lead-footed as anyone when his orange 56 modified is percolating properly, fought off a late challenge by Jim Edgington, Algona, and grabbed the feature, capping a perfect night for him before a large crowd at the weekly stock car race Jim Johnson of Gilmore City won the door prize Friday, a 1957 Ford 4-door, which was donated by Ken's Auto Service, during a free drawing. Schattschneider couldn't be beaten Friday, despite the fact Edgington was running hotter in his number 14. Schattzie copped the first heat and Edgington grabbed the second, with the fast-moving 56 winning the opener by a half-lap. Edgington then finished second in a special event for the four top point winners this season before this pair, plus Les Wildin, also of Algona, put on a real fast run in the trophy dash, with 56 winning. Then came the feature, which was also a fast drive. H was Schattschneider, Edgington and Wildin again for the first eight laps when a spin-out back in the pack forced a single file re-start. Wildin's car was scratched and Leo Christiansen, West Bend, took over third from then on, There were several re-starts, mostly caused by slight mishaps or spin-outs during the evening, A car driven by Rich Yeoman, Algona, was demolished when it Forest City's Jack Olsen gave Algona fans little to cheer about as he hurled his club to a 2-0 victory over the Bulldogs in the Sectional Tournament final at Garrigan Wednesday. The 5'2" righthander gave up a single to Tom Claude in the fifth for the lone Bulldog hit and allowed only four base runners all night. He struck out 12, while walking one. Algona bowed out of the tournament rather meekly as the Bulldogs could move no man farther than second base. • In fact, Claude's hit to right field was the only Algona ball hit out of the infield. Garrigan had better luck with Forest City earlier this summer, downing the Indians twice, 13-6 and 3-2. Craig Espe did a fine job on the hill for Algona, giving up just three hits, two to Olsen. Espe struck out 8. ForestCity's first run came in the third when with two out Olsen singled and scored on Terry Bransted's long double to right-center. The other Indian run crossed the plate in the fifth. Tom Anderson walked, moved to second on a balk and to third on Olsen's second single. Espe then issued his second walk of the inning to Bransted. As Bransted attempted to steal second catcher Dan Gilmore threw to second baseman Claude who caught Anderson off third base. Claude chased Anderson toward home but his toss to Gilmore was too late to get the diving Anderson. Algona leaves the tournament with a 14-6 record, but has games remaining with Humboldt July 20 and Burt July 23 and 30. They will be the final high school games for three seniors, Dan Gilmore, Steve Hardy and Skip Perkins. Coach Christie's club has already recorded another creditable campaign and a win in any of these remaining contests would be frosting on the victory cake. The Bulldogs have a 6-3 North Central Conference mark.
