Christ Community Center, College Football league seeks groups for a comeback BY STEVE HOFFMAN The Cincinnati Enquirer North Cincinnati Athletic League (NCAL) President Mike High insists the dormant football program is not dead. Only three communities Bevis, Deer Park and Winton Hills remain in the league. A dispute last fall between High and Ken Stanley, former NCAL president, about the residency of players prompted six communities to leave the NCAL to form the Community YoUth Football League. "We needed four communities, at least," High said. "We will reorganize in 1992." Winton Hills joined the Ohio Buckeye Youth Football organization, and players who were on the Bevis and Deer Park teams have been temporarily placed on other teams. High said he is negotiating with five organizations to join the NCAL. "We hope to know something by late November or early December," High said. Teams and organizations interested in affiliating with the NCAL may contact High at 271-5115 or 791-4757. There is one certainty the NCAL name will be dropped. "With all the bad publicity we got last year, I think it best we get a new name for the league," High said. Hill, and Ohio Emergency Food Center, Northside, were the recipients. Football players, cheerleaders and parents were asked to donate two cans of food for admission to the 14 games over two days.said Pat Williams, president of Hilltop Football Association, a six-team affiliate of Buckeye American Youth football. The two days were dedicated to the late Mattie L. Grant, mother of 11-year-old Hilltop Golden Hawk Charlie Grant and wife of the team's coach, Charles "Skip" Grant.

The Community Youth Football League (CYFL) will have its first Riverfront Stadium Bowl this weekend beginning Saturday at 9 a.m. and concluding Sunday. Forty-one CYFL teams and 13 teams from other Southwest Ohio communities will participate. Admission only through Gate 11 is a $1 donation. A year ago, the CYFL was part of the then 10-year-old North Cincinnati Athletic League (NCAL) when a dispute arose over the use of players from outside the teams' communities. Ken Stanley, then NCAL president, 1 insisted all players live in their respective team communities. Mike High, now NCAL president, disagreed and filed suit in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. The suit was dismissed and opposing parties were ordered to negotiate. Split about residency In trying to reach an agreement, High agreed to community eligibility but insisted that current players from outside the community enjoy "grandfather" status and should continue to play with their original teams. Stanley refused and went on to create the CYFL taking along the four NCAL charter communities of Lakota, Loveland, Mason and Sharonville. Meanwhile, the NCAL is dormant this fall because of a lack of participating communities, High said.

Patton drives a Sunbeam Tiger, a small British sports car with a big Ford V-8 engine squeezed into it. Competing against cars like the Porsche 944, Patton qualified seventh. On the first lap of the race, he drove around an accident, moved into fourth, then got knocked off the track by another car. He came back to finish sixth. Dave Hamann, a West Chester driver who also competes in a Formula Ford, suffered a similar fate. Hamann started 11th, and was running 10th with one lap left when he was knocked off the course. He finished 21st. BY STEVE HOFFMAN The Cincinnati Enquirer How about sitting through a three-hour soccer game? How about playing through 12 overtimes? It took 6- and 7-year-old Ma-riemont and Indian Hill girls soccer teams that long Sunday to complete a league playoff game, possibly recording the longest tristate-area game this season. But it was far from the all-time record in the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY), according to Roland Bedard, commissioner and assistant executive director. In the early 1980s, during the state tournament at Corpus Christi Park, New Burlington, Bedard said two senior 16-year-old and over girls teams played 26 overtimes over two days to determine a winner. Jim Gruenwald, SAY executive director, said that game led to a recommendation that games be limited to two to four overtime periods and then be determined by a series of penalty kicks. Local leagues, however, set the maximum overtime periods. Sunday's game between Ma-riemont Monsters No. 4 and Indian Hill No. 5 at Terrace Park was a playoff for second place and the second slot in the SAY tournament. Coach Mary Ann Meyer's unbeaten 10-game Indian Hill No. 4 won the league championship. The game started at 1 p.m. and ended three hours later when Amanda Davis took a deflected shot and booted it into the left corner of the goal for Mariemont. Emerson Knowles, Indian Hill coach, was filled with praised for both teams. "The kids never stopped giving everything for the whole three hours," he said. "The energy was staggering." BY RANDY OPPENHEIMER Enquirer Contributor Five race-car drivers from the Cincinnati area competed at the Sports Car Club of America national championship runoffs earlier this month in Atlanta. Terry Hohnecker, a veteran driver from Western Hills, said this year's runoffs were "not one of my memorable experiences." The motor in Hohnecker's Formula Ford wasn't as strong as he had hoped, the radiator had a hole in it, and transmission problems forced him to hold the car in gear on the 2'2-mile course. He started 30th in his class, and finished 20th. "I've been driving too many years (16) not to do better," he said. "Even my wife said I looked slow out there."
