(UPI)— Mike Pratt, a seldom-used substitute of the Kentucky Colonels, paced the Eastern Division season champions to a 109-93 victory over the New York Nets and reduced the losers' lead to 3-2 in the American Basketball Associa- ' tion playoff series.

There will be only one tryout session for the league and any boys in Cass County who are 13, 14 or 15-years-old are eligible. The tryout session will be followed by a meeting of league managers at which time the draft of players will be conducted. The league will open play on June 5 at Steinman Field with doubleheaders each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday through July. Any boys participating in spring sports who are freshmen or above may not actively try out because of IHSAA rules. Boys participating in spring sports should contact Ren- newanz and they will be placed on the eligible list for the draft. Boys in grades below freshman may tryout even though they are participating spring sports because IHSAA rules do not involve them. There are several openings in all age groups, Rennewanz says. seven points at 97-90. Kentucky Coach Joe Mullaney, in search of a guard who would put movement in the Colonels' attack, called Pratt off the bench in the first quarter and the former University of Kentucky star responded with 22 points for the game. The Nets, despite the return of ailing Rick Barry to the lineup, trailed throughout the game except for one point in the opening period when Barry hit a layup to put them ahead 13-12. Pratt and another former reserve, Les Hunter, gave the Colonds an outside shooting threat that helped ease the pressure on 7-2 Artis Gilmore at his low post. Gilmore collected 20 points and 19 rebounds, giving the Colonels domination of the backboards. The game was televised nationally. Kentucky's leading scorer, Dan Issel, had 24 points although he sat out nine minutes in the last half after drawing his fifth foul. Rookie John Roche topped the Nets attacks with 26 points and Barry, who missed Friday night's game because of a 100- degree fever, left his sick bed to score 23 points. Hunter, a one-time Net, opened at forward in place of regular Cincy Powell and tallied 20 points. The series returns to Nassau Coliseum in New York Monday Trio Cut ANAHEIM, Calif.

Derby County Still Leading Soccer Race LONDON (UPI) - Derby County blitzed hapless Sheffield United 4-0 away from home Saturday to end a two-game slump and retain leadership of the English Soccer Championship race. But despite their crushing victory, the pacemakers were still unable to gain any advantage over Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester City, for all three won. With only a handful of games left, Derby holds a slender one point lead" over Leeds and the other pair are only another point off the pace. With little margin for error now, the big four all showed their determination to win the division title. Leeds capitalized on the injuries currently plaguing Stokes with a 3-0 victory, Liverpool turned back Coventry, 3-1, and Manchester City beat West Ham, 3-1. The Leeds win was not without cost, however. In the closing minutes of a rugged match, fullback Terry Cooper was carried off on a stretcher with a leg injury. Nick Jones and Peter Lorimer scored for Leeds. Derby's goals were scored by Archie Gemmill, Alan Durban, Kevin Hector and John O'Hara. indy Officials To Use New Signal System INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (UPI) —A signal light system will be tried at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to help drivers maintain their relative positions when track conditions make it necessary for them to run at reduced speed during this year's 500-mile race. It includes eight electrically controlled yellow light panel boards dividing the 3 1-2 mile oval into eight segments of 1,650 feet each. By using a control board at the start-finish line, it will be possible to set the lights for any desired speed whenever hazardous conditions develops. At the start of a yellow-light period, each driver will see a specific number, ranging from one to eight, on the panel he is approaching. As he reaches the same relative position in the next segment of the track, if he has adjusted his speed properly, the number on the panel will change to the same number as the previous one. If he sees a different number ahead of him, it will be necessary for him to adjust his pace to conform with the adjusted speed control.

Evonne Goolagong Wins Title JOHANNESBURG. (UP1)- Evonne Goolagong of Australia rallied Saturday for a 4-6, 6-3, 60 revenge victory over Britain's Virginia Wade to capture the women's singles title in the South Africa Open Tennis Championships. The victory was the second straight by Miss Goolagong after the British ace beat her for the Australian crown earlier this year. The Aussie trounced Miss Wade in the Federation Cup competition two weeks ago. Miss Goolagong drew the cheers of the 6,000 capacity crowd for her consistent strokes and icy composure. She lost only four points in the last four games of the final set, which she wrapped up in 24 minutes, to collect $2,660 winner's purse. The opening set levelled at 3-3 after Miss Wade won the first three games and her opponent the next three. The Briton then took three of the next four games for the set. Miss Goolagong broke Miss Wade's service in the fourth game of the second set and again in the opening game of the third set enroute to the title. Miss Goolagong said after the match "It doesn't worry me when I lose a set. It only makes me play harder." South Africans Bob Hewitt and Frew McMillan, one-time Wimbledon champions, beat Ray Moore of South Africa and Frenchman Georges Goven, 6-3 6-2 6-4, to take the mens doubles title. The state motto of Texas is "Friendship." Foster KO's Ronyon in 2nd Round MIAMI BEACH (UPI)—If the World Boxing Association still has any doubts about whether Bob Foster is the light- heavyweight champion, it can ask Venezuela's Vincente Rondon. The skillful and composed Foster scored a devastating second-round knockout Friday night over the 28-year-old Venezuelan hero who had won his last 21 fights and never lost to a light-heavyweight. From Albuquerque, N.M., Foster, now 47-5 lifetime, came to fight for keeps and with a vengeance against the man who won a WBA elimination tournament a year ago to gain the crown stripped from Foster in December, 1S70 for lack of activity. After he had sprawled Rondon into a face-down stupor for his 40th career knockout, Foster remarked: "I didn't get a chance to beat him the way I wanted to beat him." From the. opening cell, tne agressive look on Foster's face and the aggressive lefts into Rondon's face made it a one- man show. The hundreds of Venezuelan fans who flew to Miami Beach, armed with their national flag and plenty of cheers before the fight, fell silent. In round one there was little action but Foster's jabs and combinations had him 5-4 over Rondon on the UPI card. But in the second round the stalking 6-foot 3-inch Foster unloaded a right to the head and a quick left which sent Rondon to the canvas for an eight count. Although the former soldier from the Caracas suburb of San Jose de Rio Chico bounced up quickly after the count he fell victim to a new barrage. The Knockout Foster caught him with a brutal right to the chin. Then, after a classic follow-through which looked more like a home run swing than a punch, Foster easily shifted his weight for a left cross to Ronoon's face, followed by a quick left hook as Rondon was falling, eyes closed, at 2:55 of the second round. With Foster declared the winner and champion by Referee Cy Gottfried, the deposed champ was listless for more than three minutes. Rondon's loss is his sixth against 37 wins and one draw. Both fighters earned 550,000 guaranteed from the bout which drew a crowd of 6,131. Both said after the bout they plan to fight in the heavyweight ranks where neither has had success.
