Woods has never played Poppy Hills particularly well, so it was no surprise when he let out a heavy sigh and said, It feels like Groundhog Day. It was, in more ways than one Friday. Back in the picture at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am was Matt Gogel, the victim of Woods spectacular comeback last year. He tied the course record at Poppy Ilills with a career-best 62 that gave him a three-stroke lead over Vijay Singh. Singh was part of the drama last year, too. He was one stroke back going into the final round and finished in a tie for second with Gogel Woods wasted another soft, still and sunny day on the Monterey Peninsula writh a l-over 73 on a course that has five par 5s.

Williams looked at Baldwin like he was crazy, but guard Justin Bell and big man Cliris Nelson worked the play to perfection for the winning basket as Escondido edged Valley Center, 54-53, in overtime in a key Valley League game. Escondido improves to 15-7 overall and 4-2 in league play while Valley Center falls to 13-10,3-3. I just wanted to make a good pass up around the rim, said Bell, who finished with 13 points. It felt good when I let it go and, the way Chris jumps, I knew if it didnt hit the rim hed catch it and put it in.

Keith was consistent, said Ron Mix, his teammate on the Chargers 1963 championship team. But he had a good knack for having breakout games in big games. Lincolns big night comes Wednesday when he is formally inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame. For many, its a honor which is Mat tling only by its timing.

The Chargers embarrassed the Boston Patriots, 51-10, before 30,127 at Balboa Stadium. We had too many weapons for them, Lincoln said. Added Mix, a Hall of Fame tackle: It was one of the most after loss Wednesday. By whining Mt. Carmel (16-8, 5-1) stayed one game behind Torrey Pines, which beat the Sundevils 44-37 on Tuesday. That's what made this game so much more important. It was a lough loss Wednesday because it was for first place, said Traaen, the senior forward. We talked a little hit about the loss and then spent die next 48 horn's talking about RB.

The Chargers spit out 610 net yards, a postseason record. Lincolns rushing total was second in playoff history before being bumped down a notch in the 2000 postseason, and his per-carry average (15.85 yards) is No. 2. What made the outing by Lincoln and the Chargers so astounding was that during the regular season San Diego defeated the Patriots twice by a total of only five points. We had a lot of respect for Boston, particularly their defense, Lincoln said. Then came the title game, in which the Chargers dominated from the start. On the second play, Lincoln peeled off a 56-yard run which set up Tobin Rotes 2-yard scoring rush. Bostons offense baked a three-and-out, and it was Lincolns Paopao excited by his XFL gig STEVE SCHOLFIELD Si h Wkiiik Joe Paopao admits lies a little nervous. After all, it has been 24 years since hes coached a football team in the United States and that was as a volunteer assistant at MiraCosta Community College. Paopao, an Ocean-side High grad, developed his football skills as a player and coach in the Canadian Football League. But on Sunday, he'll return to the American version of football. Hes the offensive coordinator for the San Francisco Demons, one of the teams in the new XFL. The Demons play host to the Los Angeles Xtreme at 1 p.m. Sunday. The game will be shown nationally on UPN. Its great to be in California, said Paopao, an Oceanside Palomar women stay in tie atop PCC DAVID HAMMEL SI Milk SAN MARCOS Lika Black stood near the foul line and yelled encouragement to her teammates on the Palomar College womens basketball team. Lets keep up the intensity, the Comets point guard pleaded with her team holding a 15-point lead. Lets go. I vts keep it up. The instructions seemed unwarranted at the time, but later, Palomar needed every bit of Blacks emotion. The Comets nearly surrendered a 21-point advantage in edging visiting South NEWS WIRE Stacey Dragila, the Olympic champion in the women's pole vault, smashed her world indoor record, clearing 15 feet, 21 1 inches in the Millrose Games on Friday night In her secono try at the record height, Dragila smashed the mark of 15-1 i that she set in the USA Championships in Atlanta last March 3 BEST BETS GOLF AT&T Pebble Beach National ProAm, third round, noon.

This time he rumbled 67 yards for a touchdown and the Chargers led 14-0 before Boston could get the opponents license plate. Lincoln had a great game, Lowe said. We didnt have enough footballs for everyone that day. Lincoln, an All-AFL selection in 1963-64, was used1 mostly as a fullback in the L&L back-field which included the speedy Lowe, the Chargers all-time leading rusher. And with Alworth abusing cornerbacks down the field, it's clear to see why Lincoln could be overlooked. We had some weapons, thats for sure, said Lina ln, 61, now the executive director for alumni relations at Washington State. Id carry the ball a dozen or so times a game, that was my mode. LINCOLN, C-4 resident who spent most oi the time in Vancouver with the British Columbia Lions. The mnde-for-television league owned by Vince McMahon of the World Wrestling 1 ed-eration offers plenty of coaches a chance to prove they can succeed at the pro level in the United States. That was not my original intention, said Paopao. This moves me closer to home, which is Oceanside and my lamily.Thut was No. 1. With this leagues formal, you are going to get a lot of exposure. Hence the trepidation. Three days after helping the B.C. Lions win the Grey Cup championship in November, Paopao was back to work in San Francisco. B.C. coach Greg Mohnx, director of player personnel for the Demons, had a big hand in bringing Paopao back from Canada. He dropped my name to (head coach) Jim Skipper and we went from there, said Paopao. Skipper, the former offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, has known of the PAOPAO, C 3 western, 66-61, in an important Pacific Coast Conference contest Friday. Shes a key force on our team r iglit now, Palomar coach Sherry Titus said of Black, who transferred from the University of Denver'. She keeps them together, keeps them focused on what we'ne trying to do. Black scored 17 points and contributed nine assists as the Comets (13-9 overall, 5-1 in the Pacific Coast Conference) remained tied with San Diego Mesa for first place in the six-team conference.
