Dolphins Dump Boston's T By DON BOYKIN Staff Writer Red Jenkins. Belle Glade High football coach, was feeling pretty good Friday night after his defensive unit had held Pahokee's Leopold "Leeford" Sterling, the leading ground gainer in the Suncoast Conference Western Division, to only 24 yards after three quarters. Belle Glade, a decisive underdog, only trailed 14-7 at the time and the primary reason was Sterling's far less that usual amount of yards. But then the fourth period started and so did Sterling and suddenly Jenkins did not feel so good. Sterling, a 180-pound junior, broke loose for 132 yards in that final 12 minutes of the game to lead the Blue Devils to a 28-7 victory and the Suncoast West Conference title. He ended the night with 156 yards on 16 carries and scored .hree touchdowns, one on a 72-yard effort lutein the last quarter. For his offensive exploits. Sterling is the Post-Times Offensive Player of the Week. Sterling has been carrying footballs for Pahokee High ever since he was in the ninth grade. And the thoughts of having him oack next year has his Coach Web Pell dreaming about a second straight conference title in '-69. "We're going to lose a lot boys off this team, especially on the line," says Pell, "but it sure is nice to know Leopold is going to be back." The hard-nosed halfback accounted for 825 yards this season and scored 16 touchdowns indicating that Pahokee foes next fall can expect more of the same. "Sterling has learned a lot of football," Pell said, "since he started. He can make a mistake and you can pull him off to the side and talk to him and he really responds. He should have broken one or two other times against Belle Glade." Other outstanding offensive performances were turned in by: JACK RHINE, Riviera Beach - Gained 307 yards in 24 carries and scored four touchdowns as the Hornets thrashed Jupiter 57-0. POP GROVER, Delray Carver - Picked up 186 yards on 14 carries and scored three TD's to lead the Eagles to a resounding 50-0 win over John Carroll. ALBERT MCINTVRE, Martin County - Scored two touchdowns on runs of 75 and 25 yards as the Tigers pounded out a 38-0 Homecoming victory over Okeechobee. FREDDIE ALLEN, Lake Shore - Completed 12 of 18 passes for 216 yards and four touchdowns in the Bobcats 45-0 decision over Dunbar. SAM CLARK, Kennedy - Helped the Vikings to a 39-7 win over Roosevelt with 108 yards in 21 carries and a touchdown. TOMMY TOOMBS, Kennedy - Connected on six passes for 101 vards and two touchdowns in the Vikings verdict over Seminoles 5 Glass Describes Sellers the Boston nine for a touchdown and then directed a surge to set up a 17 -yard field goal by Jim Keyes. Miami went in front to stay late in the half as Anderson intercepted a pass at his 12 and returned to the 27. Griese moved the Dolphins to the Boston 15. and Keyes booted a 22-yard field goal as the gun sounded. Griese. who has set a Miami recoru oy tossing for 18 touchdowns this year, hit Noonan on a short scoring pass in the third period and then on a 44-yard bomb in the finale. Anderson, a rookie from Colorado, ended Boston's last hope with Miami in front 20-10 early in the fourth period. With the ball on the Miami six, Anderson stole Sherman's pass and took off down the right sideline be- Penny Ann Won't Play For Colonels Morrall Leads Colts Victory LEOPOLD STERLING Football Standings American League Eastern Division WIT Pet.

Mastin said her contract had been approved by league Commissioner George Mikan, but Nets owner Arthur Brown said Mikan did not have that authority. "If something unusual comes up," he said, "it's up to the owners-not Mikan. If the league lets her play, there's nc reason for having an ABA. "We've got a lot of money invested and are trying to create 'r hind 10-0 on a 15-yard goal by Gino Cappelletti and a 60-yard pass from Tom Sherman to Aaron Marsh. Then Griese went to work. He capped a 67-yard march by passing to Larry Csonka from ment, perhaps, except for our Ron Sellers. They're supposed to have a better running game. Their offensive backfield is bigger and faster than we are. Several can run the 100 under 9.8. Most people don't understand that the Seminole pro-type offense gets better and better late in the year. It's involved and takes a lot of timing and teamwork. But when it is all honed together like we expect it to be for Houston, it is a powerful thing indeed. We've got to improve some more to beat Houston, but we're 90 percent there already. Our defense is going to have to carry a big load next Friday night. I think they can do it. Our offensive line has also got to give Cappleman the protection he'll need to get those passes off. We did not against Wake Forest. I think we'll do it against Houston. I understand Houston will not try to stop Ron Sellers, but will go to stopping Bill Cappleman with a rush before he gets the ball in the air. If so. that means our offensive line has its work cutout. Houston can be taken. And so can LSU, when we go to the Peach Bowl in Atlanta after Christmas. Like Coach Bill Peterson tells us. we're the best team he has ever coached at FSC.

The National Broadcasting Co., which vowed it would carry all American Football League games to their conclusion after last week's Heidi incident, showed a commercial during the last six seconds of Oakland's 34-0 conquest of Cincinnati Sunday. Oakland was in possession of the ball on the one-yard line at the time, but didn't score after the network broke away. "We took a station break with six seconds left," an NBC spokesman in New York admitted. "But the score was 34-0 at the time." . A week earlier, the network drew fire from thousands of irate football fans after it broke away from the New York Jets-Oakland game with 42 seconds left to show Heidi. 'flr. or . ' Behind Bears. COMMACK, N.Y. (AP) - Petite Penn Ann Early, thwarted in her efforts to become a jockey at Churchill Downs, said Sunday she has "no intention of plaving professional basketball." Miss Early, signed to a contract by the Kentucky Colonels of the American Basketball Association, was with the team for its game against the New York Nets Sunday. She was not in uniform, however. She wore a black knit dress and sat with Colonels' team manager Charlie Mastin. "I was signed by Kentucky strictly out of sympathy be-caase I couldn't become a jockey," she said, but added that she would appear at the Colonels' next home game, Wednesday. "I'll be in uniform," she said, "and will go on the court before the game make a couple of tore angling at the 50 and racing untouched for the touchdown.

The Colts remained on top of their Coastal Division while Minnesota held on to first place in the Central with a 6-5 record. Baltimore seemed well on the way to a rout behind the passing of Earl Morrall in the first two quarters. He threw touchdown passes to Willie Richardson and Tom Mitchell and two of his long-range tosses set up another.

By CHIP GLASS FSU Tight End TALLAHASSEE (AFNi - Ron Sellers, the nation's all-time collegiate gainer in pass receptions, has been casting a big shadow at Florida State for the past three years that I have played on the same team with him. He's such a gentleman and a team player, that I haven't minded it at all. There is no jealousv of him by many members of the team, simply because he is such a great athlete. We're all just glad to know him. There's no doubt that Ron Sel lers was the difference in Saturday's defeat of Wake Forest. 42-24. Those five big touchdown passes represented an amazing achievement and I should know for I am in the pass catching business too. Surprisingly, Wake Forest didn't double-guard him all the time. They switched coverage on him. He was quarterback Bill Cappleman's primary target on most of the 14 passes he caught, although on some Cappleman had a choice of receivers. 1 don't blame him for throwing to Sellers most of the time. I'd pick Sellers as my receiver too. By CHUCK VOORHIS Golf Editor DELRAY BEACH - Kathy Whitworth, top money winner of the LPGA tour, appeared to be coasting into her 10th tournament win of the tour in the final round of the Louise Suggs Invitational event at the Pine Tree Sunday. But before she won it with a 210 total her closest rival , Carol Mann, gave her one big and awesome scare. Trailing by nine shots at the end of 36 holes, the 6-foot, 4-inch Buffalo shotmaker, took the Pine Tree course apart with an amazing 65, seven urJc par, that pulled her to vithi i two shots of the win. Miss Whitworth picked up $1,875 for her victory and Miss Mann accepted a $1,475 check for second place. Kathy said she hoped for at least a closing round of 72. And that is what she scored, and needed almost all of it to sur-ve the Mann charge. Kathy was out in 37 to 34 for Miss Mann, losing three shots at the turn. She was playing in a threesome immediately behind the Mann threesome, and word drifted back that the lanky stylist was knocking the pants off par. But coming to the 18th with a one-shot lead, Kathy rammed home a 4-wood to within four feet of the pin and sank the putt for a birdie that clinched it. She had two pars, four birdies and three birds going out but settled down in on the inward nineforaone-under35. Miss Mann's round of 65 matched an earlier, low for her of 65 at Col umbus in J uly . The comeback by Carol has been matched a couple of times during the LPGA events. Mick an image. We're not operating at a publicity man s whims.

There was a time when a win over the Gators was the really big thing we were alter all year. I guess Coach Ray Graves just doesn't want to meet us late in the year when we've got our complicated offense down pat. Houston is going to be a lot worse.

Miss Whitworth, trailing by eight, shot bl in a closing round at St Louis to tie for first place and won the tournament in a playoff. MLss Whitworth has now won $57,872 for her year on the tour, and with one tournament to go, is easily the top money winner of the year. Miss Mann has collected $53,780. Both figures are for official tour wins and also unofficial prize money. Miss Wright is the all-time leader with 80 victories and $250,000. Miss Whitworth has had 46 tour triumphs and has won $217,000 in her 10 years on the tour. Another season, such as this, will put her winnings ahead of Miss Wright, who now plays the tour infrequently. Kathy said she knew Carol was the gal to watch. "This course was made for her," she said. "I always worry a bit about ber scoring, and today, I'm glad I had that 8-shot cushion going into the final round." And Carol's comment, at the presentation ceremony was an enthusiastic, "She's just too much" referring to Kathy. Top amateur in the event was Tish Preuss of Pompano, now fully recovered from a mysterious malady that sidelined her for two months and kept her out of the World Cup matches in Australia.
