THE ALABAMA JOURNAL, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19. 1984 Hrudey's goal-tending saves tie for Islanders United Pwss International Although Pat LaFontaine made the goal that sent the Islanders and Flyers into overtime. New York's Kelly Hrudey was the hero because of one that wasn't scored. The two young Islanders were largely responsible for the 3-3 overtime tie Sunday night between the Patrick Division rivals at the Spectrum in Philadaphia. Hrudey's heroics came with the Flyers leading 3-2 midway through the final period. While on a breakaway, Ron Sutter was brought down by Islander Paul Boutilier. Sutter was awarded a penalty shot but Hrudey, moving away from the net, blocked the attempt. "I came out from the goal and maybe Sutter was just a little bit off center, and he had his head down and was trying to make the shot to the corner of the net, but he didn't succeed and I blocked the shot," said Hrudey. With less than three minutes left in the third period, LaFontaine sent the game into the overtime period when he slanted a 25-foot shot from the left circle through the legs of defenseman Brad Marsh and past goalie Pelle Lindbergh, evening the game at 3-3. For his efforts, Hrudey not only earned praise, but also a new title from Coach Al Arbour. SuperSonics prove gracious hosts for Nets By United Press International The Nets were in need of some hospitality and the SuperSonics were glad to oblige. New Jersey, in the midst of a seven-game road trip, was coming off a tough victory at Golden State and was ripe for the taking Sunday night. But according to Seattle guard Ricky Sobers, the Nets encountered a gentle team in the Sonics. "When a team has been playing this long on the road, this place (The Kingdome) should be a lion's den." Sobers said after the Nets won 102-97, "and Top-rated Tennessee State finds 14 players ineligible NASHVILLE, Tenn. Tennessee State, top ranked in Division I-AA with an 11-0 record, has declared 14 players ineligible and the NCAA Sunday decided not to allow the team to participate in post-season play. Ilerry Miles of the NCAA in Mission, Kan., confirmed the school had declared the players ineligible Saturday night and the Division I-AA Selection Committee voted unanimously Sunday not to allow Tennessee State to appear in the playoffs. Miles said the decision by Tennessee State to declare the players ineligible took "moral courage." The players were not identified although three were starters. The reason for the ineligibility of the players was not disclosed. lockridge to box Bou Ali RIVA DEL GARDA, Italy Italian-based Tunisian Kamel Bou Ali will have little time to rest before getting back into the gym for a January World Boxing Association super featherweight bout against world champion Rocky Lockridge of the United States. . Ali, the top rated challenger, gained what promises to be the top fight of his career after his Panamanian opponent, Alfredo Layne, was disqualified for head-butting in their Saturday 'night fight. ', Layne's disqualification was 'greeted by jeers from the crowd at the Congress Hall in this town on northern Lake Garda. "We were unlucky in a sense," said Ali's manager Umberto Branchini, CRUISE CONTROL SALE PRICED $149.95 installed (tlSOODCTIA MANUAL padary Crab Cwrtrab hr AU Oi, FORD, CNRTHBt. imrvm j "He's our designated roadie goal-tender," said Arbour. "Kelly Hrudey has been playing very well for us on the road." The Flyers are unbeaten in their last five games, which included back-to-back contests against Boston and the Islanders. New York is unbeaten in its last three games and trails Philadelphia by four points. "We've had a helluva week three wins and a tie against top teams in the league. We just had tough games back-to-back against Boston (a 5-3 victory) and the Islanders, and it was a real test for our kids," said Flyers Coach Mike Keenan. Devils S, Rangers 0 At New York, Ron Low stopped 35 shots and recorded his first NHL shutout since 1978 and Rich Preston scored three goals as New Jersey Devils snapped a nine-game winless streak. New York lost its fourth straight. The Rangers' most ptod-uctive left winger, Don Maloney, fractured his left leg in a first period collision and will miss at least three months. Nordiques 5, Black Hawks 3 At Chicago, Peter and Anton Stastny each had a goal and two assists to lead Quebec, Chicago had a five-game unbeaten streak snapped, but remain in first place in the Norris Division with a 9-7-2 record. there were no lions here tonight." Micheal Ray Richardson scored 23 points and Darwin Cook added 19 for the Nets, who have won two straight games and three of the last five during the road swing. "For us to come out here and win on the West Coast, especially without having (injured center) Darryl Dawkins, is really amazing," said New Jersey Coach Stan Albeck. "Fifty-four of our 82 games this year are back-to-back. The team has to learn to live with it." Richardson scored 13 in the third quarter when the Nets took the lead for good. The developments mean that TSU not only would miss the playoffs, but that the team would also be left out of the rankings to be released Monday, Miles said. Miles said the attorney for the student athletes contacted the NCAA Saturday and said they were waiving their rights and were allowing Tennessee State to rule them ineligible for post-season play with the understanding they would pursue future eligiblity with the NCAA. "I tried to contact TSU to obtain information on the 14 players ruled ineligible. They confirmed that the school had ruled them ineligible," Miles said. He said the school must rule the athletes ineligible not the NCAA. tVi Co ? feTo ft d X XVi n Tea KvCu Fr! l!0"i Gur.ico MUDDERSGSOUND hawgs SIZE PRICE PER TIRE G78-14LT $65.96 N78-15LT 85.57 I P7fM5LT VTW Q78-15LT liZ Q78-16LT 119.53 H78-15LT $84.98 L7M5LT 66.46 I N7fM5LT I V0.4I Rangers' Nick Fotiu GET YOUR RAIN OR ALL WEATHER COAT CLEANED AND WE'LL WATER REPEL IT FREE WITH THIS COUPON EXPIRES NOVEMBER 30TH, 1984 COUPON MUST BE PRESENTED WHEN COAT IS BR0UGKT IN NOW THERE ARE 12 LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU! 419CIoverdaleRd. 104 Coliseum Blvd. 3901 Norman Bridge 3626 Backboard Dr. 3128 Atlanta Hwy. 5310 Atlanta Hwy. 5352 Atlanta Hwy. 2909 Carter Hill Rd. 2L Includes Sc!:3 Tax, Cclcneo 6 Kcms 07 COTTOM UISTIS RICES 0 checks Bob Lorimer The Sonics were led by Al Wood's season-high 25 points, including 9 in the fourth quarter.

Calif. For young Kim Labonte, the end of the 1984 NASCAR Grand National season confirmed all of her best suspicions about her husband. "As far as I'm concerned, Terry has always been a champion," she said of her racing hubby. "This just made it official." Labonte, 28. finished third in Sunday's NASCAR 500 at Riverside International Raceway, but only needed to finish eighth in the final event of the season to become the youngest driver since Richard Petty in 1964 to become the national champion. Geoff Bodine won the race when the Chevrolet of front-runner Bobby Allison blew a tire les3 than four laps from the finish. The race was delayed nearly three hours by rain and was completed in almost total darkness. Labonte won his first major NASCAR championship by 65 points over Harry Gant, who finished eighth in the race. Bill Elliott, the only other driver beside Gant with a chance to overhaul Labonte, finished fourth. "Bobby was awful strong all the way around the racetrack," said Bodine, "and I really didn't know where or when I'd be able to pass him. But he blew the tire, and heck, that's part of racing. "I'm real glad I didn't have to pull off a pass on that guy. That would have been a real good trick." Labonte, who earned $291,000 for the season title, took the safe course to the championship, opting not to go after the leaders on the closing laps. "We ran the kind of race we wanted to run, very conservative," Labonte said. "At one point near the end I felt I had the chance to take the lead, but when I got right there I couldn't get by KOIIZV DSAB.S Brewbaker Anto Rental & Leasing Inc Low rates Free Pickup No mileage charge Special Weekend rates Special rates to Government Employees 1984 & 85's Hoicks Low mflease. quality rental cars Ail Loaded Convenient downtown Lot.
