6—Ukiah Dally Journal, Uklah, Caillf. Thursday, January 12, 1978 Viking tourney Saturday UHS matmen give Santa Rosa double lesson Rolling up a lead of 40 to zip before losing a team [Mint or a match, Ukiahi's Varsity wrestlers went on to give Santa Rosa high school's , young matmen a wrestling lesson to the tuiie of 61 to 11 before a supportive audience Wednesday evening in Chessall Gymnasium. Capitalizing on three six- point forfeits by the Panthers, the Jay vee matmen of Ukiah, under coach Pat Wilson, opened the evening with an ultimate 60 to 12 win over the Santa Rosa Jayvees. Saturday the Ukiahi mat- men, wrestling Varsity only, travel to Montgomery high school for the Viking Invitational — there to meet, for the first time, matmen from unbeaten ElMolino and some other top mftt teams. From Gerardo Lopez' opening 135 pound first-round pin until Robert Kuintzle, 12 bouts and 13 weight divisions later, wrapped things, as well as his opponent, up in a nice neat wrestling package, Ukiah's seasoned matmen dominated the Santa' Rosa Varsity bouts, as they had the Jayvees, only more so. In the first seVen bouts wrestled the Big Cats gave up just four individual points — on a penalty point, one reversal, an escape and another penalty point, and nary a team point in building a 40 to 0 team lead, while scoring four pins wins in even bouts. The first six Ukiah men who actually wrestled scored 45 individual points enroute to those first four pins, and two decision wins of 14-1 and 15-4, in addition to a forfeit as Santa Rosa had no man to face Ukiah's Cliff Yaple. Gerardo Lopez, 135, led 7-zip before pinning his man in the first period. Chuck Navin, 140, won, 14 to 1; Carl Johnson, 147, led, 6^ when he pinned his man in the second period; Richard Paz put together two takedowns, two three-point near-falls and two two-point reversals enroute to his 15-4 win at 156. Bill Eilliott won on a first round pin at 167, leading by an aggressive 2-0; Cliff Yaple won by forfeit, and Steve Knedler, though wrestling loosely and at times in trouble, dame from behind to.roll over onto his opponent for a pin win in the final 42 seconds of the third period, after trailing, 7 to 4, at 193 pounds. De'nnis Dickenson's near win at 193 appeared to give Santa Rosa's younger grapplers a shot of confidence. Tony Contreras, , at heavyweight, scored the first Santa Rosa win in the seventh wreS |tled bout of the night, as he scored a takedown and then pinned Doug Johns of Ukiah. Ukiah got that pin back in spades as Hugo Lopez, leading 4-1, pinned his 97-pound foe in 1:39 of the first period. Bob Meyers of Ukiah found himself up against a superior, more experienced Santa Rosa opponent at 105 pounds, fought off four three- poin^ near-falls and survived a 22 to 3 loss, still fighting for his two reversal points in the third period. Richard Navin, 114 pounds, led 14 to 2 in the third period before he could flatten his man long enough for a pin win. Brad Fox, at 122 pounds, scored an initial takedown and second period two-point reversals and. near-falls, to win, 6-0; and Robert Kuintzle, 129, finished the mateh^s as Gerardo had started them, with a pin in the last 36 seconds of the first period while leading, 4-zip. Final: Ukiahi Varsity, 61, Santa Rosa 11. Matches lasted a bit longer in the Jayvee bouts. Scott Pardee, Brendon Cabral and Justin of ,the Jayvees won by forfeits. Some of the others had to work a ,bit harder! Henry Kuintzle, down 4-0 on early mistakes, rallied to tie the score, then win on a third period pin. Kenny Johnson used an initial takedown and a third period escape to counter a last period reversal to win, 32. Rahdy Goodipan made a costly mistake and got pinned, as he, like several matmen, got too high and Bingo! Nash of Ukiah got the initial' takedown, then also got into trouble and got pinned. Gary Scott smoothly dominated his short match with a takedown, two-point near-fall and a first period pin. Greg Gallegos worked over his opponent three periods enroute to a 5 to 0 victory. And Richard Dale turned his man every way but almost loose in building a 13 to 3 win, then pinned his opponent. Art Hunter rolled up a 7 to 2 win, but never quite got, that wanted pin wiri. Danny Bray led 7-1 the first period before putting away his man, and Mathews of Ukiah pinned his man in the final heavyweight match in the first period to make the final Jayvee score, Ukiah 60, Santa Rosa 12. Some Jayvees may challenge or otherwise get to wrestle at Montgomery, if .they get the chance Saturday. But it is a Varsity tourney so they may have to wait until the next dual niatch, meanwhile working toward perfection in practice. 'Don't want her onboysteam' QUICK ADJUSTMENT! — While Varsity wrestling Coach Jerry Aikman, in background with youngest daughter Anna, watches, and some fans check score of close Jayvee match, Ukiah's Bill Elliott adjusts headgear before returning to mats to beat an opponent. Elliott also won pin victory over Santa Rosa Wednesday night. (See story, left.) Ukiah hosts Masonite- tJkiah Invitational Tournament on Jan. 21 — Journal photo by Erickson. South Ukiah elects board By RICK VAN SANT CINCINNATI (UPI) — "I , have a datlghter," said Gerry Faust, one of the nation's p-emier high school football coaches, ."and X Sure don't want her playing football." Faust, co^ch of Ohio state £ champioft/Cincinnati Moeller High School, was part of a storm of opposition , to a federal judge's order that high school girls must be permitted to play alongside boys in such contact sports as football and basketball. "I think everyone has equal rights, but some kind of a line has to be drawn," said Faust, regarded as one of the best prep mentors in the country. "I think there are plenty of sports my daughter is suited for besides football." Asked if he thought girls who wanted to play football alongside boys should be allowed to, Faust said: "I really don't, know. I don't general manager Mike Brown. "If the Jaw says that, then the law is a little bit siUy." "It's a bad thing," moaned Tom Thacker, who coaches a women's college basketball team. "A few women would b^ able io compete alongside men, but the great majority couldn't." ' , "Tackle football is no place for girls," said high school football coach Frank Howe. "There is a difference between girls and boys, thank God." The strong reaction was prompted by U.S. District Court Judge Carl Rubin's decision in Dayton this week that current bans on coeducational high school teams in contact sports are unconstitutional. Rubin said such bans may even be keeping some girl somewhere from beconiing the greatest quarterback in Friday, Saturday, Purdy court Eagles battle Feather River, COS confers E*or the first time in more tinued co-leadership, or than a month, anjj for tbe first perhaps outright leadership, time this year and this season of the conference, and be that know things like if the fem&le, pro football history. South Ukiah Little League held its first board of directors meeting of the year Tuesday night at Nokomis School to elect new officers.

Rams look for new coqch again LOS ANGELES (UPI) — For the second time during his six-year ownership of the Los Angeles Rams, Carroll Rosenbloom is looking for a new head doach but this time his search may take him only 400 miles away. Chuck Knox and Rosenbloom, unhappy with each other for the past two seasons, parted company Wednesday — one day after the Rams talked to St. Louis' Don Coryell about the job. Knox, 45, went to the Buffalo Bills for a better deal and Rosenbloom launched an intensive hunt for a succjessor. in GVC competition, basketball fans will get an opportunity to see the soaring Mendocino College basketball Eagles in competition on their beautiful new Carl Purdy Court Friday and Saturday nights.

Because they now are beginning to believe in themselves and are willing to work together, to play defense as well as offense; to battle on the boards and to go whatever, distance is necessary to get, the job done. Opponents can't rely on them tiring or folding in the late going as they have on occasion in the past, from sheer exhaustion.

CARD ROOM Wine Glass Tavern at the Forks GAMES Start at7:00 p.m. First four players 25 for 10 Bargain PHONE 462-424 246 By FRED LIEF UPI Sports Writer When Phil Johnson was axed as coach this past week and Larry Staverman — a Kansas City Kings' front office man — was named his replacement, it meant good things for the center Sam Lacey, who has been spending a lot of time on the bench. Wednesday night Lacey scored a season-high 20 points as the Kings beat the Los Angeles lakers, 102-94, snapping a nine-game losing streak. More importantly, Lacey played 35 minutes — which didn't happen under Johnson. "Sam felt he should be more of an assist, man," said Staverman, who picked up his first NBA coaching victory. "When he got the ball, he was always looking to pass it off. We told him to shoot jnore, to take his jumper from the-top of the key. He's a good shooter." Ron Boone, who finished with 18 points, helped Kansas City — last in the Midwest Division — pull from a 47-39 deficit to a 69-69 tie, and Boone added eight foul shots in the final five minutes to insure the Lakers their fifth straight Warm Winter 1 Coats, Boots, ^ Socks insulated Vests: i Gloves IUKAMIUUIII loss.
