Nakonechny failed to touch second base and was called out on an appeal play. Calgary's first run came In the second inning as catcher John Edwards led off with a single. He advanced on a walk and then scored on another sin- gle off the bat of Stu Herron In the third inning Al Twa singled just before Papworth added a single. A wild pitch moved the runners up a notch and then Twa scored on an er ror. in a turnabout Is fair scored their lone run in the third on singles by desig nated hitter Rod Taylor and Bob Brown and an error. The locals had a good chance to tie the game in the fifth in ning as they had runners on first and second with none out but failed to score. Nachonechny paced the Gi ants' 12-hit attack with a triple and a single while Papworth and Moffatt each chipped in with two singles. Brown and Taylor each had two singles to go with Hegge- dal's double and single. despite their loss in he Alberta League will play host to Leduc Oilers next -eekend in the Alberta senior inal.
