12A-DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Sunday. April 25, 1971 Comet and Crew Qualify for State N-H sports Wildcats Drop 16-lnning Gem Whiz Kids Set In Three Events CORPUS CHRISTI—Dennis Rowland, the Queen City Comet, came off of a late start and experienced his first first-place loss in two years in the 100-yard dash here Saturday night. The Comet made up ground in his dash to the wire but lacked two inches of lapping front-running Louis Brown of Sinton. Brown was clocked in 9.6 and Rowland was given 9.7 as both qualified for the coveted century field at state. Gerald Land, Rowland's teammate on the Wildcat century soloists, placed third. The Comet, off to a fine start in the 220-yard dash, breezed home in 22 seconds flat. 5/10ths seconds ahead of Sinton's Joe Tijerina and 6/10ths of a second in front of Land. Del Rio's sprint relay team of Rowland, Land, Albert Garcia and Tommy Ratliff, combined for a breezy win in 42.4. The Cuero Gobblers were second, seven or eight yards Scoreboard College Baseball Hardln-Simmons 8-3, Pan American 6-13 Baylor 6, Texas Tech 5 (11 innings) LamarTech4-3,UT-Arlington 3-2 Texas 12, Rice 4 Texas Christian 8, Texas A&M 7 (10 innings) Houston 9-9, Air Force 1-6 College Tennis Trinity 8, Corpus Christ! 1 Saturday's Pro Hockey By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NHL Playffs Montreal 6, Minnesota 3; Montreal leads best-of-7 semifinal 2-1. Sunday's Games Montreal at Minnesota Chicago at New York, afternoon, national TV. New York leads best-of-7 series, 2-1. behind in 43.1. Sinton took third in 43.2. For the whizzing Wildcats Ratliff ran the lead leg and Garcia followed with both Del Rio dashmen holding their own. Land, running the No. 3 spot gave the Queen City crew a little night light and Rowland, as anchorman, rolled to the wire adding • a little breathing room over the Cuero threat. John Spears, Del Rio's lone field event at the Regional IV meet, took seventh with a long jump of 20'4". The Queen City mini-squad of five contestants piled up 50 points to rate the runnerup team spot behind strong and deep Sinton with 85. Belton, also with a host of qualified personnel was third with 40, nipping Taylor by a lone point. Rowland's defeat in the century set up a return match with his Sinton rival Brown for next weekend at the same stadium. One of the four "Little State" meets will be held in Buccaneer Stadium next Saturday where the competition includes state qualified trackmen from all four Classes. Similar pre-State meets will be held next weekend at Houston, Lubbock and Dallas. Del Rio's veteran track coach Walter Levermann told the News-Herald late Saturday night that "We qualified in the three events we expected to and although Rowland was extremely disappointed in not winning the 100-yard dash he has two more chances. It was just one of those unfortunate things. Dennis got a rather slow start and ran out of running room at the tape. Over-all I think the boys did real well." Rowland's two "other chances" will come next weekend in the "Little State" and a week later in the real State Meet. The Wildcats spent • the night in Corpus and will arrive back in Del sometime today: UVALDE—Fans who braved the late night hours and remained on the scene,-albeit edgy, to view -the District 14-AAA West Zone baseball contest at Uvalde between the host Coyotes and the visiting 'Del Rio Wildcats are still talking about the conversation piece that went 16 innings. The topics of conversation were two bits of extraordinary conservation turned in by relief pitchers Mike Dishman for Uvalde and Ceasar Sotelo for Del Rio. The Coyotes won the 4 hour and 45 minute high school diamond gem 6-5 in the. bottom of the 16th inning on a daring delayed dash by leadoff man Oscar Mireles. The Uvalde catcher opened the 16th stanza with a three-base hit and came home on Jay Harpole's sacrifice on a unique bit of base running. Harpole's grounder was fielded deanly by Del Rio second baseman Jorge Mas who faked the runner at third before wheeling to make a throw to first. As Mas made his pivot Mireles broke for the plate and slid in under Mas' change-of-direction throw. Sotelo, coming on in relief of starter Jerry Lee pitched 12 scoreless innings before his ill-fated 13th. The burly right-hander faced 43 batters before Mireles manipulated his delayed steal and gave up only four hits and the lone run. Dishman came on in relief of starter Gary Ferguson in the fifth frame and went 12 scoreless Innings to pick up the victory on six scattered hits to earn for the Coyotes a share of the Western zone lead with Kerrville who was idle Friday. Del Rio coach Bob Denlson started Jerry Lee, the Wildcats other veteran pitcher. Lee had a slight problem with his control but.allowed only two earned runs in his stint. He moved out to first base when Sotelo came in and was given a base on balls four times with teammates on the paths. Lee and the Del Rio defense sparked by Jorge Mas and Turi Ramirez at second and short and Mario Hernandez, the catcher, kept the Cats in the ball game right up until early Saturday morning. Brilliant defensive tactics by the Coyotes also kept the game going when Del Rio left runners stranded time after time in the extra innings. The Wildcats made up a 5-0 deficit in the top of the seventh inning to send the contest into overtimeA In that, final frame Mike McDonald worked Dishman for a walk and Mario Hernandez singled. Lee walked and Sotelo .was safe on a force out. With twb outs, Ramirez got his precious single and promptly stole second and third. Ramirez tied up the game at 5-alI when he darted home safely on a passed ball but Rob Henderson was out at third base on attempted theft after successfully stealing second TOd third. The followed nine innings and Uvalde's game winning run by Mirelez in the 16th. Bob Foster Scores Unanimous Decison SATURDAY NIGHT LEADER-This 29-lb. yellow catfish was the late Saturday night leader in its division of the Open Fish with'Minnows contest being held by a co-op of local bait stands. John Bates and N.D. Mclntyre of Midland, visiting Amistad Lake on a bass fishing trip set out a bank line Saturday baited with a Del Rio minnow. Less than an hour later the Midland fishermen ran the line and harvested the fine catfish. The contest will close at 6 p.m. today and awards prizes for catfish, white and black bass and crappie.

By HUBERT MEELL Associated Press Sports Writer TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Aging Bob Foster stalked galloping Ran Anderson for 15 rounds Saturday night and scored an unanimous 15-round decision to retain one version of World lightheavyweight boxing championship. Heavyweight champion Joe Frazier shouted advice to the 26-year-old challenger, mostly "hook, Ray, please hook," but it didnt work. Foster was the aggressor in going the full 15 rounds for the first time in his career. Judge Floyd Golden scored it 145-138onthe lO-point must system, judge Bill Diaz called It 145-140 and judge Sam Kline made it a Foster sweep with a 148-139 card. Referee Lee Sala did not score the fight. Foster, who weighted 170% , improved his record to 43-5-0, but failed to score a 37th knockout. Anderson, 172Vz ,is now 336-1. Anderson, a 3-1 underdog, fired a left hook at Foster to open the first round and then became a one-man merry-go- round. Foster chased, the crowd booed and few exchanges developed until both men began to tire in the sixth round. With Anderson avoiding a conflict, the judges piled up points for the champion. The cocky Anderson shouted insults at Foster at the end of Insist ORIGIHAL EQUIPMENT VINYL ROOF To conceal Hail Damage to your Car.

Foster managed jack-hammer left hooks to Anderson's head when he occasionally caught his younger opponent, but the 32-year-old veteran couldn't take his man down in the nationally televised fight. Foster, of Washington, D.C., took the title from Dick Tiger in 1968 and Anderson of Akron, Ohio, is only the second contender to take him past the fourth round la six defenses.
