Top Sebeka 28-0 In homecoming Battlers notch fifth victory Scoreboard Henning 26, New York Mills 0 Moorhead 14, St. Cloud Apollo ByDONNSIEMS BATTLE LAKE - "It was a tremendous team effort" said Battler's coach Tony Thiel after his team had defeated the Sebeka Trojans here last night in Park Region Conference football action. Battle Lake, rated second in the state poll in Class C, had just posted an impressive 28-0 victory over a strong Sebeka eleven. "The defense was just tremendous," Thiel said. Battle Lake struck early after senior Tom Stewart recovered a Sebeka fumble on the second play of the game. With 9:59 on the clock, quarterback Mark Hustad hit back Dave Freeman on a 13-yard pass for the Battler's first six. The conversion attempt failed. The first quarter ended with the Battlers holding the 6-point lead. In the second period Hustad went to the air, completing six out of ten attempts for 75 yards and another TD. With 2:11 remaining in the period Hustad hit Freeman again on a 31-yard pass, and he high-stepped into the end zone. The conversion again failed. With five seconds remaining in the period, Sebeka was threatening, but the defense held and the halftime score was Battle Lake 12 — Sebeka 0. Battle l^ake started off strong in the third period but with 9:21 on the clock, the Trojans' Kevin Johnson picked off a HusUtd pass. But the Battlers rame Twins defeated 3-2 ANAHEIM (AP) - It could have been a night of infamy for the California Angels. Thanks to Doug Howard, it wasn't. Rookie left-hander Frank Tanana was poised on the threshold of becoming the first 20-game loser in trie 14-year history of the Angels and the club itself was one defeat away from matching its record for defeats in a season—95. But Howard lined a two-run pinch-hit single in the seventh inning, lifting Tanana and the Angels to a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Having opposed a potential 20-game loser, the Twins now face a 21-game winner in Nolan Ryan tonight in the second game of the three-game weekend series. Ryan, 21-16 and the major league strikeout leader with 352—31 shy of his record-shattering total of 383 set last season—will duel Minnesota's Joe Decker, 16-13. Neither Tanana nor his man- Otter gals sixth in golf meet THIEF RIVER FALLS — Fergus Falls High School girts golf team placed sixth in an eight-school golf invitational held at Thief River Falls Thursday afternoon.

Hoffman wins 20-14 in overtime Evansville rips Ashby 34-8 The Evansville Tigers rolled over the Ashby Arrows 34-8 in football action Friday night in Evansville. The win pushed the Tigers' mark to 3-1 while Ashby fell to a 2-3 mark for the season. Evansville scored first as Dave Koplin tallied on a 15-yard run. The PAT failed. Rick Koplin scored in the second quarter on a five-yard run. Ashby's lone touchdown also came in the second quarter on a pass from Steve Quam to Bruce Helseth. Perry Evavold ran in the conversion, and Evansville went into halftime with their lead cut to 12-8. But the Tigers put the game out of reach in the second half. A one-yard plunge by Dave Koplin in the third quarter and the conversion score by Larry Anderson made the score 20-8. Evansville added 14 points in the final quarter, on a five-yard run by Darryl Hanson and a 22- yard scamper by Larry Anderson. Greg Ellingson converted on the final touchdown, making the final score 34-8.

Ashby — Belseth pass from Quam 6 yards, PAT Evavold run. Casper leads Kaiser by two strokes ager, Dick Williams, seemed overly apprehensive about 20 losses. "I'm not concerned at all about the possibility of his losing 20 games," Williams said. "Bad pitchers don't get a chance to lose 20." Tanana, a No.l draft selection three years ago, wasn't worried either. "I'm not thinking about losing 20," he insisted. "All I'm thinking about is winning No. 14." Tanana will be given that opportunity in his last start of the year next Tuesday night at home against the American League's West Division champion Oakland A's. It appeared as if Tanana was destined to drop his 20th when Steve Brye of the Twins lofted a sacrifice fly to right field which snapped a 1-1 tie in the seventh inning. Brye's fly followed singles by Luis Gomez and Glenn Borgmann. But the Angels struck back quickly in Ihe same inning to win. With one out, Denny Doyle and Morris Nettles singled off loser Vic Albury, 8-9, and Nettles promptly stole his second base of the night to station runners at second and third. Then Howard batted for Bob Heise and drilled a two-run single to left-center. California scored a run in the first on a double by Nettles and a single by Bruce Bochte but Minnesota tied it in the second on Harmon Killebrew's double and Gomez's single. Rod Carew, ready to annex his third straight batting title, managed only one hit in five trips but his average fell only one point to .366. Davison scores three times for Elbow Lake right buck, as senior Tun Anderson recovered a fumble IM plays later. With 4:45 remaining Huslad hit B.-ian CHIT with a 20-yard pass to give Battle Uke" six more points. The conversion was also good as Huslad hit Tom Stewart all alone in Ihe i'fid zone. The Battlers' Carr intercepted a Handy I'aurus pass on Die first play after the kickotf, but Battle bike was forced to punt with 2:4:i remaining. The kick was blocked and Sebeka took over. With 1:39 left the Trojans pulled a fake punt and Paurus hit Jim Graba who scampered for 30 yards before the Battlers' Jon Shorter pulled him down. With 23 seconds remaining Sefoeka was again on the verge of scoring but lime expired. The Battlers were now holding a 20-0 lead. On the first play of the final quarter, with only 11 seconds gone-, the Battlers' Stewarl intercepted a Paurus pass to kill the drive. On the next play Battle lake's Freeman broke through for a :t5-yard gain, but the drive was stopped on Sebeka's 25- yard line as the Battlers failed on a fourth and five situation and Ihe Trojans look over with 8:lia remaining. With G-.32 left in the game the Batllers again took over and Brian Carr drove into the end zone on a 6-yard run with 5:51 on thcscoreboard clock. Huslad again hit Stewart alone in the end zone to give the Battlers a '28-0 lead. In the final two minutes of the contest, coach Thiel put his reserves into the game, and again Sebeka knocked on the iloor to score. But on the final play of the game, a pass was dropped in the end 7one and the final score was 28-0.

Stokka got Rothsay its first six points on a one-yard plunge in the opening quarter.

Macheledt was the leading ground gainer \vilh 63 yards and Carr took the honors with defensive points. The Battlers are now 5-0 on the season with the defense giving up only H total points.

Then, Hob Gibson of the Cardinals plunked Pete UCock leading off the Chicago fourth. "II was a half-speed slider," advised St. 1/ouis Manager Red Schocndienst, indicating an accident. Then, Dettore clipped l>ou Brock leading off the Cards' fifth, After that, the Cardinals did most of the hitting with their bats. Joe Torre's two-run homer and Ted -Simmons' two- run single gave them a an 8-1 lead in the fifth and they cruised to a 10-1 victory. Hie triumph enabled the Cards to keep pace with Pittsburgh, 2-1 winners over the New York Mets, in the National I-eague East race. St. l/>uis and Pittsburgh remain tied at &4-73 records with five games to play. Elsewhere, San Diego edged las Angeles 3-2, Cincinnati shaded San Francisco 4-3 and Montreal blanked Philadelphia 2-0. The Cardinals, who engaged in a free-for-all with the Cubs last week in St. I/mis, won the game but came out of it with five injured players. Gibson, who drove in four runs on a double and a sacrifice fly, left after six innings with a stiff shoulder. Relievers Rich Kolkers, who injured his back, and Mike Carman, who took a line drive off his left shin, also left the game. So did McBride, with an injured right arm after being hit by a pilch, and Reggie Smith, who strained his back. for San Diego and Bill Buckner hit one for l/os Angeles. lic'iis 4, Giants 3 Dave Concepcion scored all the way from first base with the winning run on a throwing error by San Krancisco pitcher Gary Ixivelle.

(AP) — Coach Ben Martin's contract was to have expired at the end of this year. But it has been "torn up." Martin recently signed a new contract to coach the Cadets football team through 1978. Martin is in his 17Ui season as coach of the Falcon eleven. By BOB GREEN AP Golf Writer NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Billy Casper, with 50 pro golf tour titles behind him, had just been asked what one more victory would mean. "Everyone needs to win once in a while, if it's just to keep up your confidence," said the portly, 43-year-old veteran after a moment's consideration. He paused, then laughed. "And, if you've got nine kids, you'd better win more than just once in a while, With nine kids, it can become very important to win." Casper, in a slump for the last year, expanded his lead to two strokes Friday with a solid, two-under-par 70 in the second round of the $150,000 Kaiser International Open. His 135 total is nine under par. Bobby Walzel, a 25-year-old rookie from the University of Houston, was alone in second after taking a 70 for 137 halfway through this chase for the $30,000 first prize. Johnny Miller, the outstanding player in this country this season with seven victories, was well-placed at 138 after another 69. He was tied for third with Don Bies and John Mahaffey. Mahaffey had a 68 and Bies a 67 in the mild weather that flavors the Northern Calfiornia wine country. PGA champion Lee Trevino • dropped back with a 73 and was eight shots away from the lead at 143. Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin are not competing. "I'm not in bad shape, but I should be at least one or two strokes better," said Miller, who needs only an eighth-place finish to break Nicklaus' single- season money-winning record of $320,542. Casper hasn't made a bogey in the tournament, had a good putting round and picked up two birdies in his round over the tough, 6,916-yard North Course at the Silverado Country Club, Miller and Walzel played the easier south course, which yielded a 65 to Casper in Thursday's opening round. Only the north course will be used for the final two rounds today and tomorrow. Vikings blanked by Glyndon The Buffaloes of Glyndon- Felton shut out Pelican Rapids 20-0 in football action' Friday night in Pelican Rapids. The Buffaloes' first score came on a four-yard run by quarterback Doug Jones. Jones then found Steve Lynde in the end zone with the conversion pass and the Buffaloes were out in front 8-0. Jones had set up his own touchdown on a 45-yard bomb to Jeff Johnson, putting the ball deep in Viking territory. The second Buffalo touchdown came on a pass from Jones to Dennis Jones. The PAT failed but the Buffaloes went to half time in front 14-0. Glyndon-Felton added one more touchdown in the second half on a two-yard run by Randy Meyers.
