Calder caught a 98-yard touchdown pass during UNR's 35-21 victory Saturday at Mackay Stadium. UNR takes 35-0 first-half lead By PAUL BAUMAN University of Nevada-Reno head football coach Chris Ault called it "one of the best halves we've played in my nine years here." UNR took a 35-0 halftime lead over Eastern Washington, a Division I-AA independent applying for admission into the Big Sky Conference, and held on to beat the Eagles 35-21 before 8,222 fans at Mackay Stadium Saturday. UNK, 3-2 in tne Big SKy ana s-4 overall, dealt Eastern Washington's I-AA playoff hopes a severe blow. The Eagles, 6-2-1, lost to Boise State 45-17 and tied Montana 14-14 earlier this season. Everything went UNR's way in the first half. Eastern Washington committed four turnovers and the Wolf Pack converted each one into a touchdown. The Wolf Pack outgained Eastern Washington 303 yards to 79, held the ball for 19:52 of the 30 minutes and was not called for a single penalty. UNR's last touchdown came on a 98-yard pass from backup quarterback Joe Pizzo to Bryan Calder with 37 seconds left in the first half. It was the longest pass play in Big Sky Conference history, exceeding the 97-yarder from Charlie Grayson of Weber State to Rich Bojak in 1972. "I was very pleased with our entire game in the first half, Ault said. "Our kicking game was excellent, our offense moved the ball and the defense played well. But that can lead to your demise, too. We didn't come out and play with any intensity in the second half. That's what happens with a young team." Eastern Washington's rash of turnovers was uncharacteristic of the Eagles. EWU entered the game with the fourth-best turnover margin in Division I-AA (plus 11). "We just weren't ready to play when the game started," said Eastern Washington head coach Dick Zornes. When asked why Eastern Washington wasn't ready, Zornes said, "We didn't get in (to the team hotel) 'til midnight." Eastern Washington's charter flight from Spokane, Wash., to Reno was canceled at the last minute due to weather problems. The team arrived about three hours late on another charter. The game was only the third on the road this year for Eastern Washington and its first ever against UNR. "We might have been a little intimidated coming in here," Zornes said. "We were a little in awe when we went out there." J.D. Sollars, who coaches Eastern Washington's running backs, offered another theory for the Eagles' disappointing performance. He said the Eagles may have been complacent after beating Idaho State 41-23 last week and Idaho 32-25 the week before. "Things have gone our way the last two See PACK, page 3B College highlights Page 5B Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie posted 421 yards of total offense Saturday against Penn State to set an NCAA career record.

Four-time Olympian heads Reno Run field By RAY HAGAR Today the old master runner of the Reno-Tahoe area could be overtaken by a young lion. Domingo Tibaduiza, the 34-year-old four-time Colombian Olympian who lives in Reno, will lead the field in today's men's half-marathon of the Circus Circus Reno Run Marathon and Half Marathon. Yet by the end of the 13.1 mile race through the streets of Reno, some upstart might be leading him. Two runners Derrick May and Danny Grimes are poised to knock off the ol' man. Others such as Joaquin Leano, Rudy Munoz and George Hernandez have outside shots. Colts, 9-1 , are sitting pretty after 'ugly' win By MITCH HUERTA Wooster High School proved the Northern AAA is a two-team football league. Unfortunately, the Colts shouldn't receive any style points for their Northern AAA Zone playoff victory Saturday. Simply, Wooster's 16-8 victory over South Tahoe was ugly. Just ask the 1,000 people who watched the teams commit four turnovers and be whistled for more penalty yards than offensive yards. Appropriately, the Colts scored the winning points on a safety, a blocked punt through the end zone. It was that type of game. Nevertheless, the Colts showed enough character to overcome two first-quarter mistakes, an 8-7 South Tahoe lead and 11 penalties for 91 yards to post their ninth win in 10 games. With their sixth straight victory, coach Joe Sellers' Colts will play Reno for the Northern AAA Zone championship Friday at Reed High School. Game time is 7 P Tlie winner will advance to the Nevada AAA State Championship, marking the 16th time in 18 years that Wooster or Reno has represented the Northern AAA in the StcltG firiells South Tahoe finished its best year qualifying for the playoffs with a 6-3 record in the worst way. The Vikings failed to capitalize on good field position in the first quarter, committed three turnovers and were flagged 12 times for 135 yards. The game featured two of the top three rushers in the state but junior quarterback Donnie Walker was the leading rusher this Saturday. Wait-or nishpH ir times for a eame-hich 50 yards and two touchdowns. He guided the Colts on scoring drives of 53 and 22 yards without completing a forward pass. Walker accounted for nearly half his team's offense (43 carries, 118 yards) and keyed the Colts' first scoring drive with a 22- yard bootleg run. That and a South Tahoe clipping penalty on a punt gave Wooster the early momentum. But South Tahoe, which played well in a 23- 14 loss to Wooster three weeks ago, came back through the air in the final Tibaduiza's recent results add to the drama. Since failing to finish the Olympic Marathon in Los Angeles because of heat exhaustion, Tibaduiza has not run up to par. His competitors whisper- that his overcrowded road racing schedule has sapped his strength. Still, Domingo says he's ready to go. The races, starting at 9 a.m., begin and end on Sierra Street next to the Circus Circus. "Now, we can get together and see who is the area's best long distance runner," Tibaduiza said. "If it comes down to a showdown, well, I'm all for it." Grimes, a U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier in the 10,000 meters, beat May and Tibaduiza in last week's Modesto (Calif.) 10- kilometer race with a course record of 28. minutes and 55 seconds. May finished at 29:31 while Tibaduiza lagged behind at 30:20. "I'm more worried about Danny Grimes (than Tibaduiza) to tell the truth," May said. "I think he is running the best of all of us at the moment." Said Grimes: "I don't consider myself the favorite. Domingo is the kind of guy that can run badly one week, then run great the next. Because of his experience and just because of who he is, I'd consider Domingo the favorite." Tibaduiza doesn't put much worth into his Modesto time. "I only went to Modesto because I got good appearance money." Mnnpv will he a factor todav. The race has a $10,000 purse. The winners of the men's and women's marathon will receive $2,000. The men's and women's half-marathon winners receive $700 and the men's and women's winners in the roller-ski division get $100. "Of course it (money) is a big factor," May said. "Anybody who says money isn't a factor wouldn't be running. Don't make it sound like everybody is running for the money, but it is a big factor." The Tibaduiza name could be scattered over other winner's checks. Domingo's younger brother, Miguel, is a favorite in See RUN, page 4B V ,o V - 1 -'J. : i A.

The Vikings drove 75 yards in 12 plays to take an 8-7 lead on quarterback Shawn Vitto's 9-yard touchdown pass to Paulo Muntean and conversion pass to Chris Morgan with 10 seconds left before half-time. South Tahoe's drive was aided, of course, by a roughing the passer penalty that took away an interception by Wooster's Tim McAllister. McAllister, a junior running back, picked off a Vitto pass early in the fourth quarter to set up a 22-yard drive that was capped by Walker's 1-yard touchdown run from the single-wing formation. South Tahoe's Mike de Rubertis, who entered the game with 1,356 yards rushing, was held to 38 yards in 17 carries. Wooster's Rodney Fields, who had rushed for 1,219 yards, was held to 46 yards in 18 carries. Fields, who leads the state in scoring, did not score for only the second game mis season. The other time Fields did not score was in a 17-7 loss to top-ranked Reno in the third week of the season. Asked if he was looking toward the Reno game, Sellers said, "I have no comment. South Tahoe coach Mike Alcott was livid after the game. Alcott was more See WOOSTER, page 4B Mountaineers slide downhill against Virginia MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -Don Majkowski threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to tight end Geno Zimmerlink in the first quarter Saturday and Virginia's rugged defense smothered I2th-ranked West Virginia to upset the Mountaineers 27-7. The Cavaliers, 6-1-1, dominated the 7-2 Mountaineers from the outset, mounting a 351-85 rushing advantage and controlling both lines of scrimmage. The game was watched by scouts from five football bowls and a crowd of 56,453. Majkowski's pass to Zimmerlink with 23 seconds left in the first period capped a 58-yard play drive. West Virginia drove to the Cavaliers' 6-yard line on the next series, but Virginia safety Bob Sweeney intercepted a third-down pass in the end zone when Mountaineers' quarterback Kevin White underthrew to split end Wayne Brown. Kenny Stadlin kicked a 40-yard field goal with 5:53 left in the half, giving the Cavaliers a 10-0 lead.

West Virginia averted a shutout with 3:44 to go when reserve quarterback Tony Reda connected with Gary Mullen on a 44-yard touchdown pass. West Virginia's Paul Woodside missed Field goal attempts of 58 and 37 yards in the first half, and the Cavaliers' defense then held West Virginia without a first down until only four minutes remained in the game.
