Clackamas used the two-hit
pitching of Dave Coghill and
the one-hit pitching of Mike
Colka to pin down the wins. In
the first game Coghill |iad a no-

in the second contest.
Clackamas knocked off the
host team in game one 6-4 but

received a valiant effort from
number-two man Dave Long.
Qualls defeated Ted Lindquist,
who is the highest returning
finisher from the region. Qualls
