The Sioux City Journal Sunday, Sept. 25, 1988pageD1 Heavily favored Hawkeyes trip Cyclones By Terry Hersom Journal sports editor IOWA CITY - It was a day full of surprises Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. " For the tout sheets offering Iowa as a 24-point favorite, the Hawkeyes' 10-3 escape from arch-rival Iowa State was jolt enough. But for those anticipating how rival coaches Hayden Fry and Jim Walden might respond to the outcome, there ' was more of the unexpected. Fry, whose heavily favored Hawkeyes were outgained 354-343 in total offensive yardage, must have been perturbed with an increasingly ;sluggish offense, right? ; . Wrong. '-, Walden, a realist when it comes to , the painstaking business of building a winner at Iowa State, must have felt felation at coming so close on the heavily favored Hawkeyes' home turf. Wrong again. "Before you ask any questions, I'll answer something so there will be no doubt about how I feel," said Walden, mastermind of numerous upsets in his days at the Washington State grid helm. "Am I happy?" asked the second-year ISU head coach rhetorically. "No. I expected to win today, which may shock the hell out of all of you. "I didn't come to Iowa State to play teams close. Before we came here today, I really felt my football team could beat this (Iowa's) football team." At the other end of the stadium, Fry also was quick to bring misdirection into his post-game interview session. "That's the way Iowa-Iowa State games ought to be played," said Fry, smiling broadly as though he truly meant it. "I was extremely proud of my football team. They did the things they had to do to win." Ultimately, the one thing Iowa needed for its sixth straight win in this series was a game-saving interception by its uniquely named junior defensive back from Corydon, Iowa Tork Hook. Leading 10-3 with just over one minute left to play, Iowa faced four-th-and-two at Iowa State's 14. Spurning a game-icing field goal that would have measured a somewhat routine 31 yards, the Hawks gambled and quarterback Chuck Hartlieb was thrown for a two-yard loss. "I didn't want to take a chance of having a field goal blocked and letting Iowa State run that thing back all the way for a touchdown," said Fry, heading off second guessers be fore the question could be posed. Iowa State took over, needing a near miracle to move 84 yards in 55 seconds with no timeouts at its disposal. And the Cyclones nearly got one. Junior quarterback Bret Oberg, who upstaged the more highly publicized Hartlieb on this day, completed two passes which packed the closing seconds with suspense. First, Oberg threw 15 yards to senior split end Dennis Ross, whose absence during last week's 35-0 loss to Baylor was probably more devastating than many had realized. Ross, absent a week ago while attending the funeral of his grandmother, was on the receiving end on eight of Oberg's 12 completions, racking up 120 yards. The biggest catch, though, came three plays later as ISU flooded the right sideline with three receivers and flanker Eddie Brown came out of a crowd with a 58-yard reception, carrying to the Iowa 1 1-yard line. So close and yet so far, however. Oberg's first attempt to take his team those final 11 yards was a pass play on which he was forced to scramble out of bounds for no gain, stopping the clock with 25 seconds to play. The second-down try by the Cyclones was the end of it as Oberg threw over the middle and Hook stepped into a gap to make the interception. "Thank goodness for Tork Hook," sighed Fry. Hook, Iowa's No. 2 strong safety, was operating at free safety while starter Merton Hanks filled in for injured cornerback Anthony Wright. It was, indeed, a patchwork lineup for Iowa, which continues drifting miles away from its No. 1 national ranking in the pre-season fantasies of Sport Magazine. Iowa State's Walden, for one, knew the Hawkeyes weren't cut from such elegant cloth. Fry, for that matter, admitted serious misgivings about his team. "The thing I told our kids was that I didn't want them to get beat by a tradition," said Walden. "I think people looked more at who we aren't and who Iowa has been. They didn't look at the number of first-year players Hayden has to play this year." "Obviously, my football team has got some problems," said Fry. "I'm not going to get into the different things that detract from our offense. I don't want to make those things public." SEE SPENCER'S continued on page D4 Griffith Joyner mines gold in 100 SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The old order fell at the Summer Games on Sunday. Florence Griffith Joyner ended Evelyn Ashford's reign as the Olympics' fastest woman, and age put an end to gold medal hopes for Edwin Moses and Chris Evert. H Griffith Joyner won the women's 100 meters in 10.54 seconds. That was .05 of a second off her own world mark but under the Olympic mark of 10.62 she set Saturday in qualifying, although it will not count because it was wind-aided. ; "I feel so good that it's over," Griffith Joyner said. "That's the first for me in the Olympics. I thank God it's over." - FloJo, as she's known, crossed the finish line, raised her arm and then dropped to her knees. Ashford, 1984 gold medalist, won the silver in 10.83, and Heike Drechsler of East Germany took the bronze. Andre Phillips, in his first Olympics, won the 400-meter hurdles in 47.19. Amadou Dia Ba of Senegal won Olympics the silver as Moses faded at the end to third in 47.56. "I knew I was going against the odds from the beginning," said the 33-year-old Moses, who has dominated the 400-meter hurdles for more than a decade. This was only his third loss in the last 11 years. Evert's chance for Olympic gold, in tennis' first medal appearance at the Olympics since 1924, ended in a 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 loss to unheralded Raffaella Reggie of Italy. Nearing the end of a career that includes 18 Grand Slam titles, the 33-year-old Evert was beaten at her own baseline game. The end came in 1 hour, 54 minutes. On Saturday, Ben Johnson led Carl Lewis to the wire in the fastest 100 meters ever run, with four men under 10 seconds. He lowered his world record from 9.83 to 9.79 and declared the 9.75 barrier now within reach. "I'm saving that for next year," Johnson said. Records fell left and right, first at the track, then at the swimming pool, where America had its best day yet in the water on Saturday. Matt Biondi broke a world record in winning his fourth gold medal and sixth of the Games, while Janet Evans won her third gold medal in Olympic record time. It was not a perfect day at the pool, though. The U.S. Olympic Committee said Sunday that it was sending two relay gold medalists back to the States and throwing them off the team for their part in some downtown mischief during the weekend. Lewis finished the 100 in 9.92, three strides behind Johnson in the 100 meters. The shouting was over, the duel was done, and it wasn't even close. "The most important thing is to beat Carl Lewis," said Canada's "Big Ben," who has beaten Lewis in six of their last seven meetings . The bronze medalist was Linford Christie of Great Britain in 9.97. Another American, Calvin Smith, was fourth in 9.99. "He ran a great race, obviously, because it was a great time," Lewis said of Johnson. While Lewis no longer may hunt the same four gold medals he won four years ago in Los Angeles, he still could become the first gold medalist to repeat in any of the sprints. He has the 200 meters coming up Wednesday in addition to the long jump and 400-meter relay. In Saturday's heptathlon which generally confers upon its winner the title of world's greatest woman athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee needed her best time ever in the 800 meters to break her own world mark. Joyner-Kersee, Griffith Joyner's sister-in-law, finished in 2 minutes, 8.51 seconds, .41 of a second better SEE EVANS continued on page D3 H!MWJilAMJM.IJ.1:IJ.t 1 Saturday's Game Next Week 1 .

Morningside's offense did click for three touchdowns as quarterback Monte Riebhoff completed 14 of 27 passes for 191 yards. Senior Todd Smith, moved to flanker this season, was another bright spot for the Maroon Chiefs with nine catches for 152 yards. The nine grabs were a game and career high for the St. Petersburg, Fla. speedster, who now has 27 catches for the season. Two of his receptions Saturday were for touchdowns, giving him four for the season. Beaty opened the scoring with his first three-pointer, a 43-yarder, and by the end of the first quarter UND had also collected a four-yard TD run from Brian Hoffman and a 37-yard Beaty field goal. Beaty notched his third field goal, a 47-yard kick, in the second frame and the Morningside deficit grew to 23-0 on Omar Mickens' eight-yard scoring dash. The Chiefs, who had only three possessions the first half, marched 54 yards in six plays to get on the scoreboard on Monte Riebhoff's five-yard run. North Dakota quarterback Todd Kovash countered that with a 22-yard scoring pass to Rusty Ekness to give the Fighting Sioux a 30-6 halftime bulge. Continuing their assault of a TD LINCOLN (AP) Quarterback Steve Taylor and the Nebraska rushing attack bounced back with a vengeance from its 41-28 loss to UCLA two weeks ago with a 47-16 whipping by the lOth-ranked Cor-nhuskers of Arizona State in non-conference college football Saturday night. "It's been a long two weeks," said Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne, who collected his 150th career victory. "I think some of the weaknesses that showed up at UCLA we corrected today. We tackled better, the turnover thing was better, Steve hung up one pass in the end zone but we ended up plus-three in turnovers and we did win the kicking game, which was critical." "We didn't think of this game so much revenge as redemption," said Nebraska free safety Tim Jackson, who had a pair of interceptions. "We knew we had to play well and we did." Taylor rushed for 116 yards and one touchdown and threw for another touchdown to lead a 441-yard ground assault that also had I-backs Ken Clark and Terry Rodgers over 100 yards on the ground. Clark had 122 yards and Rodgers 113 yards rushing to help Nebraska improve to 3-1. Arizona State suffered its first loss in three games. Nebraska had not had a 100-yard rusher in its first three games but collected three Saturday night. "It feels good to finally get over that hump," Clark said. "Now I hope I can start to build on that." "They had too many big plays. They scored one touchdown on a fourth-and-1, and Taylor made a SEE CHIEFS continued on page D4 Summary Arizona State 13 3 0 0-16 Nebraska 9 21 0 16-47 NEB:FGDrennan40 NEB: Taylor 1 1 run (kick failed) ASU: Garrett 54 pass trom Ford (Zende)as kick) ASU: Perkins 2 run (pass failed) NEB: Clark 31 run (Barrios kick) NEB: Brinson 75 punt return (Barrios kick) ASU:FGZendeas22 NEB: Gregory 9 pass Irom Taylor (Barrios kick) NEB; Safety, Perkins tackled in end zone NEB: Rodgers 3 run (Rodgers run) NEB; Joseph 6 run (Barrios kick) A-76,312 STATISTICS ASU Neb First downs 16 29 Rushes-yards 36-116 74-441 Passing yards ....186 29 Return yards 0 1J Passes. 9-2?-2 3-10-1 Punts -6 2-39 Fumbles-lost 3-1 1-0 Penalties-yards 5-30 4-50 Time of possession .. .25:49 34:11 INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS RUSHING Arizona State, Perkins 6-15.

"He's that kind of player. He can take a play that doesn't look like it will make a lot and make a lot." "I thought we played acceptable football. I think Arizona State played hard, but I don't think they have as good a football team as last year," said Osborne, whose career mark is 150-35-2, second only to Oklahoma's Barry Switzer (150-27-4) as best winning percentage among active NCAA Division I coaches. Nebraska, plagued by slow starts against UCLA and Texas A&M earlier this fall, took the opening kickoff and marched 49 yards to set up Chris Drennan's 40-yard field goal. Taylor quickly added an 11-yard touchdown run following an interception of a Daniel Ford pass by Husker Jackson at the ASU 28. Ford brought the Sun Devils right back with a 54-yard TD pass to Chris Garrett following the NU kickoff and set up a two-yard Bruce Perkins touchdown run with a 46-yard bomb to the 3 to Leland Adams. Clark put Nebraska on top to stay ' with a 31-yard run with 13:04 left in the first half and Dana Brinson added another Husker score on a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown 2:04 later. "The punt return was certainly the big play in the game because we didn't make them work for it," Marmie said. "I think our kids were responding to a sideline return and getting the field covered and we got punched out." Alan Zendejas added a 22-yard field goal for the Devils before Taylor found Morgan Gregory crossing the back of the end zone on a nine-yard scoring pass with 37 seconds left in the first half. After a scoreless third quarter, Nebraska drove to the ASU 1-yard line but failed to score on a fourth-down sweep early in the fourth quarter. But the Huskers picked up two points on a safety when Jon Marco and Mike Murray tackled Sun Devil Perkins in the end zone on the next play. Rodgers, who rushed for 113 yards on 13 carries, added another Nebraska touchdown on a three-yard run and ran for a two-point conversion for a 40-16 lead- Reserve quarterback Mickey Joseph capped the scoring with a six-yard scoring run for Nebraska with5:42 left.

(Staff photo by Gary Anderson) Bulldogs double score on West By Steve Allspach Journal sports writer Even bright sunshine has a way of darkening West's football fortunes this season. Saturday afternoon in sun-drenched Roberts Stadium, Le Mars, which had scored just three touchdowns in three previous games, spoiled West's homecomimg game with a 40-20 triumph. ' The loss was the fourth straight this season for the Class 4A Wolverines and ninth in succession over two seasons. Le Mars, a Class 3A school, evened its record at 2-2.

Le Mars could have labeled the West defense "Nabisco" after shredding the Wolverines for 362 rushing yards. "This is the fourth week in a row we've dug a hole for ourselves early," said Heaton. "Maybe I've got to second guess myself as to whether or not I'm preparing the team properly for these games," continued Heaton. "I'd love to, but I can't go out there myself. They're the ones who have to put on the pads and the helmets and play the game with intensity and emotion." Heaton did find solace in the play of quarterback Todd Henningfeld, receiver Jamie Marksbury and several sophomores who got their varsity baptisms on the defensive side of the football in the second half. Linebacker Chris Alter, tackle Rich Buhrman and sophomore fullback Bob Towns were two of the sophomores pointed out for stellar work by the West staff. Alter is a 170-pounder and Buhrman a lean 210-pounder. Le Mars scored early and often.
