In the other American league games Sunday, the Texas Rangers clipped the Oak- 49'ers land A's 5-1; the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 8-4 and the Chicago White Sox defeated the California Angels 1-0.

The Panthers downed the Bobcats 17-0. Larry Johnson, a senior running back, was the bright spol of Ihe night as he led the 'Cats in rushing with 54 yards on 14 carries. In the passing department, Jim Byrd and James Robinson combined to hit on 3 of 14 attempts to net 40 yards for Hope. Hutson singled out Leonard Brown, Terry Martin, Willard Wilrnan and Larry Butler as playing good defensive games. On offense, Mike Powell, Jud Martindale, and Butler were praised by the new head coach. Hutson attributed the defeat to the lack of consistency and penalties that hurt the Bobcats.

By HOWARD SMITH AP Sports Writer The San Francisco 49ers lost more than an exhibition game Sunday afternoon when quarterback Steve Spurrier was knocked out of action for about two months. Spurrier, a former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida, was looking forward to starting the National Football League campaign as the 49ers No. 1. quarterback for the first time in his eight pro seasons. But the. Ram defense ended his plans knocking him out of action in the third quarter with a right shoulder separation. , Joe Reed took his place but Lds An|^iB^wbiind up wigi •$; 17-7 vicTory'anyway to close out the preseason with a 5-1 mark. In Sunday night games, the New England Patriots dumped the Philadelphia Eagles 27-17 and the Atlanta Falcons beat the Denver Broncos 20-14. Spurrier was to be operated on today. Reed, a three-year veteran out of Mississippi State who sometimes sings the National Anthem before ballgames, inherited Spurrier's starting spot. Reed's efforts Sunday were highlighted by two pass interceptions and a five-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Los Angeles led 3-0 at the half and wrapped it up in the third period with a pair of touchdowns. Defensive end Fred Dryer sacked Spurrier early in the quarter, the ball popped loose and Jack Youngblood, the other Ram end. grabbed it and raced 54 yards for one score. John Had! tossed a 10-yard pass to Harold Jackson for the other. Jim Plunkett completed 14 of 19 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown for New ,England. John Tarver and Sam Cunningham scored on short runs for the Pats, 4-2. Atlanta cornerback Torn Hayes picked off a Randy Johnson pass on the first play of the fourth quarter and raced 62 yards for a touchdown to put the Falcons, 4-2, on top for good. Bob Lee combined with Louis Neal on a 42-yard pass play for the other Atlanta TD, while Johnson threw a pair of scoring passes in the first half for Denver. In Saturday's action, Earl Morrall tossed a pair of third- quarter touchdown passes to lead the Miami Dolphins past the Chicago Bears 30-7; Bob Berry hit on 13 of 15 passes for 198 yards and three TDs as the Minnesota Vikings crushed the San Diego Chargers 42-0. * Also, the Detroit Lions dumped the Cleveland Browns 21-7 as Jimmie Jones scored one touchdown and set up another with a 63-yard kickoff return; Ken Stader hit on 13 of 20 passes for 169 yards over the first two periods as the Oakland Raiders whipped the New- York Jets 31-6; and Doug Winslow's 17-yard run in the final quarter helped the New Orleans Saints top the Houston Oilers 24-16. ATLANTA (AP) — "We're not the No. 1 team in the country right now," says Ara Parseghian, coach of Notre Dame's defending college football champions. That's Parseghian's honest opinion as the Fighting Irish prepare to open their season tonight in a nationally televised game (ABC-TV, 9 p.m., EOT) against Georgia Tech. And the sports writers and broadcasters who vote in The Associated Press poll agree with him. They have the Irish ranked third behind Oklahoma and Ohio State. There's just one small catch to Parseghian's assessment of his team. ''It's not signifreaHt to.be N.P. 1 atf'tiiis stage of'the season," he says. "It's more of a handicap right now than an advantage. I'm not saying we won't be No. 1 at the end of the season. Our objectives are always the same-we'd like to go undefeated, we'd like to go to a bowl and we'd like to win the national championship. It's just going to be a lot more difficult this year." Parseghian seemed to be sitting pretty following the 24-23 Sugar Bowl triumph over Alabama that nailed down the 1973 national crown. He expected 17 starters back to defend the title, but for one reason or an- other—injuries, accidents, university suspensions — five of them have been lost and three of their backup men also are sidelined. Parseghian doesn't know too much about Georgia Tech. but neither does Pepper Rodgers, Tech's new coach. The Yellow Jackets will use the Wishbone offense, which helped Rodgers mold an awesome rushing attack at UCLA. In Saturday's action, UCLA and Tennessee battled to a 1717 tie. The Bruins, ranked 12th, had a shot at winning in the final 14 seconds but Brett White's 40-yard field goal attempt went wide. Quarterback Condredge Holloway got the 16th ranked Vols on the Scoreboard in the first quarter, connecting with Stanley Morgan on a 74-yard touchdown pass play on the second play of the game. Bruins quarterback John Sciarra ran and passed UCLA into the lead in the final period, but Holloway led Tennessee 80 yards for the tying TD, capping the drive with a 12-yard run. Dave Buckey threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third as No. 18 North Carolina State piled up 30 points over the final two quarters to whip Wake Forest 33-15. The Wolfpack gained 265 yards rushing while holding the Deacons to just 46. Baseball Scores American League East W L Pet.

(AP) — And then there were two: Evonne Goolagong, in her heyday, and Ken Rosewall, in the twilight of his tennis career, battling to retain Australian supremacy of the U.S. Open for the second straight year. Miss Goolagong toppled America's tennis princess, Chris Evert, for the right to meet the nation's tennis queen, Billie Jean King. Rosewall out- dueled defending champion John Newcombe and set up a rematch of Wimbledon, where Jimmy Connors needed only three sets to take the title — the only major crown to elude Rosewall in his long, illustrious career. Miss Evert, the favorite among the women, came back . from a two-day break caused by bad weather and gave Miss Goolagong a good run. But Evonne, with a 6-0, 4-3 lead when the day started, survived the eager Miss Evert, 6-0, 6-7, 6-3, and increased the chance that Australia would keep the crown won last year by Margaret Court. Connors, Chris's finance protected his No. 1 seeding against a tough Tennesseean, Roscoe Tanner, 7-6, 7-6, 6-4 after Rosewall eliminated Newcombe, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3. It was the first setback for the 19-year-old bride-to-be since Billie Jean beat her in an indoor tournament in New York last March. Since then, she had won 56 straight matches and 10 tournaments, including the Italian, French and Wimbledon championships. Ms. King, the "old lady of tennis," was well rested for today's final. She hadn't played since Friday when she beat Julie Heldman, 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 in a match as dismal as the weather. If honing hard shots is what it takes, Miss Goolagong has the edge. She played 15 games Sunday before finishing off Miss Evert. The finalists in the men's singles were equally worn down — or keyed up — since both played Sunday. But age is the difference in both title bids. Miss Goolagong is 23 and Ms. King 30. Rosewall is 39 and Connors 22. So is experience. Ms. King has won three U.S. Open crowns and Rosewall two. Miss Goolagong was seeking her first, as was Connors. Player, Trevino to play off fie in Series, Nichols takes third, Irwin gets fourth AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Move over, you struggling rabbits of the pro golf tour: Gary : ,Player and Lee Trevino are teeing it up on Monday morning. No, they are not attempting to qualify for this week's tour event — the trauma that faces hundreds of non-exempt players each week. They are going in sudden death for a $50,000 first prize in the World Series of Golf. The loser gets $15,000. Neither wants to be here. "I wish I could call it a tie and get out of here," said Player. "Neither one of us wants to play. We'd both like to call it a tie." "I agree," said Trevino. "We both have things to do. But it wouldn't be fair to the people who paid their money to see a winner and it wouldn't be fair to the sponsors that put up the money. Trevino came from six strokes down with 13 holes to play to force a tie at the end of the regulation 36 holes Sunday and force a sudden death playoff. He and Player each had a 139 total, and one under par on the 7,180-yard Firestone Country Club course. Trevino made up seven strokes in one nine-hole stretch — he actually led at one time — in his last-round 69, while Player had a 72. Mark established, Dodgers take win By ALEX SACHARE AP Sports Writer Mike Marshall, making his recordbreaking • 93rd appearance of the season, came on in the eighth inning to snuff out a Cincinnati rally, then struck out the side in the ninth to preserve the Los Angeles Dodgers' 7-4 victory over the Reds. The victory gave the Dodgers two out of three in their weekend series against the Reds and put them 3M- games ahead of the second-place Reds. Mai-shall pitched in all three games of the series to break his own record of 92 appearances in one season, set with the Montreal Expos last year. He also broke a record for innings pitched in one season by a reliever. He now has 180-2-3 surpassing his former mark of 179. Elsewhere in the National League Sunday, New York beat St. Ixjufs 5-3, Pittsburgh defeated Montreal 8-2, Houston edged San Diego 3-2, Philadelphia outscored Chicago 11-10 and Atlanta beat San Francisco 5-3. The Dodgers chased Cincinnati ace Jack Billingham, 18-9, in the sixth, taking a 4-3 lead on Dave Lopes' bases-loaded grounder. Bill Buckner then greeted reliever Pedro Borbon with a double off the right field wall for a three-run lead. Mets 5, Cards 3 h Despite two stolen bases by the Cards' Lou Brock, who drew within one of equalling Maury Wills' single-season record of 104, St. Louis was beaten by the Mets and fell 2 J /a games behind Pittsburgh in NL East. Wayne Garrett's three-run homer capped a four-run rally in the eighth inning that won the game for the Mets. Pirates 8, Expos 2 Red-hot Pittsburgh posted its 13th victory in its last 15 games, exploding for five runs in the eighth inning, including a grand-slam homer by Dave Parker. Montreal lost its sixth in a row, and starting pitcher Steve Rogers suffered his 20th loss against 12 victories. Astros e, Padres 2 Wilbur Howard's first major league home run, in the seventh inning, lifted Houston to victory and handed Padres starter Randy Jones his 20th loss of the season. Jones, who allowed just four hits, has won seven. Phils 11, Cubs 10 Bob Boone's three-run double capped a seven-run third inning for the Phils, who then held off repeated Cub rallies. Chicago's Jerry Morales accounted for the Cubs' final four runs in the ninth inning with the first grand-slam homer of his major league career. Braves 5, Giants 3 Vic Correll drove in three runs with a double and a single and Ron Reed, 10-8, scattered six hits for the Braves. —Kcimm wood photo witn atar cauieu, SLICK DAVIS (25), a running back for the Hope Bobcat.s, is caught in action in last Friday's night game against Ashdown.
