6— Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif. Wednesday, January 25, 1978 Cat fives down host Rancho next Troy, Having taken two out of three games on an enemy court at Petaluma Tuesday, Ukiahi's Varsity, Jayvee and Frosh basketball teams, in reverse order, try to make it three for three Friday in friendly Chessall Gymnasium against tough Rancho Cotate, wanted to win, like it believed in team play as well as individual effort. Craig Ullrich scored 14 points, six on the foul line, but got a key steal from Petaluma's. Casey Gilroy to bring Ukiah from behind. The Cats then stayed on top, John Gulyas capturing a key starting at 5:30 p.m. with the rebound and then getting fouled, He made five of his six points in that final eight minutes. Doug Daut had 12 points for Ukiah; Tim Walkley and Gulyas, six-each; Marty Murphy, and Joe Hurlbut, who had seven rebounds, each scored four needed points and Pat Prine added two. Ukiah's Varsity had 20 field goals and 22 of 30 from the line to 21 Petaluma field goals but 17 of 24 from the line. Four Trojans Frosh encounter. Ukiah's Frosh lost their first game of the season to a smoother, more experienced Petaluma Frosh quintet Tuesday, 55 to 48. The Ukiah Jayvees came back strongly on defense and offense in the final five minutes to overcome Petaluma's Jayvees, 58-54, as Petaluma lost its big man and Ukiah kept its poise and struck for 17 points after regaining board control and were in double figures — pressing the JV Trojans into Ferrick, 17; Gary, 15; Weidig, 13 and Gilroy, 10— but in those final eight minutes when it counted to most it was Ukiah which rose to the offensive- defensive challenge. Flip Fitch and Pat Fetzer led the balanced Ukiah Jayvee scoring attack with 17 and 16 points, but it was the loss of 63, board controlling Rex Council sets criteria for hosting Games LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The City Council Tuesday approved a 149-page plan that set down guidelines to ensure that Los Angeles, and not the International Olympic committee, controls revenues from the Olympics if the city teamed Kareem Abdul- •* « *' VII I. 111.. .1.

The document stresses the use of existing facilities for the games and said control of Olympic revenues should lie with the city, not the IOC. "Arrangements are to be spartan," the first paragraph error after error to wipe out a nine point deficit and win by four. The Ukiahi Varsity played one of its finest games— except for a lapse in the third period, but had it when it needed it the most, down the final stretch, to pull out a big, 62 to 59, victory over the Trojans as three men were in double figures and many were tough on the boards. Which brings the Cats, after practice today and Thursday, to the next task at hand — beating stubborn Rancho Cotate of Rohnert Park on the Ukiahi Chessall Gymnasium floor Friday night. Casa's Varsity barely lost to Montgomery, 53-47, Tuesday in a bitter struggle; while Santa Rosa cooled off Cardinal Newman quickly, 46 to 35 in other Varsity NBL encounters. Ukiah jumped out in front at Petaluma in the Varsity game, 19 to 13; led at the half, 35-32; got outscored by eight in the third period, 18 to 10, to trail, then shut down Petaluma the fourth period on tight defense, tough rebounding, smart ball control and 17 point scoring to win, 62 to 59. Mark Levy, strong on the boards, sharp on offense, and heady enough on defense to cut out a Trojan dogie from the herd and keep him tied up in the Petaluma backcourt for 30 seconds to force a key late turnover with Ukiah still trailing, had a great night. He scored six field goals, 14 points, ' grabbed seven rebounds, hit two for two from the line and turned in some strong defensive pla/.

No math to retire PHOENIX, Ariz. (UPI) — Joe Namath, the glamour figure of pro football for the last decade, will announce his retirement this afternoon when he arrives for a sports celebrity golf tournament. Namath told the New York Times late Tuesday night that his 13-year pro career is over. "I'm not going to play next year," said Namath, the York Jets. "I knew this was points and keep the Cats on their toes.

Al Sandell services SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Funeral services were planned today for Alfred Samuel Sandell, a top figure in amateur boxing for a half- century. Sandell died two days ago at the age of 87.

Letourneau free shots to counter Petaluma's seven points by Kim Succetti and build a much-needed, 16-9 first period lead. With some girls bothered by toothache, or touches of the flu ect., the Wildcats at times appeared listless. Some tremendous board work by Lisa Letourneau, who came on to score eight of her nine points the last three periods and snare 18 rebounds in the game, helped tremendously. So did the steady feeding, rebounding and defensive work of Sue Ward and the rebounding and occasional pivot shots of Cindy Peterson before she got into foul of their class Tuesday night as they hosted Cloverdale. Cloverdale's Sean Daly scored 23 points and Bret Domenichelli added 20 as the third-ranked Cloverdale team won, 66 to 57 from the scrappy Bearcats. Steve Shepherd had 18 points, Jim Brown, 11 and Don Brown, 10; while Craig Carson added eight, Keith Lyly and Steve Dean, four-each; and Nate Lewis two for Potter's Varsity. Cloverdale simply had too much fire power, winning, 5632, while Kevin Hunter with 12 and Kenny Brown with nine led Potter Valley. Ray Lunny Sr. and Jr., Grant Butcher, Luis Molina and Babe Figueroa. Sandell was a seaman and a tailor as a young man. Jodie Knight came in to spell the ailing Karen Chapman, Jackie Kimpton helped maintain board control replacing foul-plagued Cindy Peterson* Candy Cannon when Petaluma was about to draw even, and wound up with 15 points but did not have one of her smoothest or sharpest shooting nights. Thank goodness Cindy Peterson, with 11 points; Lisa Letourneau with nine, four the last desperate quarter; Sue Ward, with six very timely points; and Karen Chapman, with a first-period field goal and five assists before retiring, took up the slack, kept their defensive poise and responded to pressure enough to win. Friday at Rancho Cotate the Ukiahi girls face an even tougher double challenge, starting at 3:30 p.m. With Katie Weaver, Dino Champion, Dana Flint and Tami Walkley supplying the outlet of downcourt passing and inside rebounding, and Shannon Ward and Paul Nichols the up-front fast- break speed, scoring and steals, the Ukiahi Jayvees took "it to Petaluma's outgunned girls from the very start in a 53-26 opening game win Tuesday in Chessall Gymnasium. A sparse but appreciative mini-gathering of fans — the girls deserve a much larger audience — saw Shannon Ward sink three first period baskets, add two free shots, then add four final baskets the last period to score 18 points in all on steals or fast-breaks set. up by her teammates. Sometimes clearing out the zone, as they say in pro football; sometimes stealing, sometimes taking a short pass from a teammate, or a long one, Paula Nichols also scored 18 points on nine field goals and helped Shannon and others get clear for their buckets. Dana Flint scored seven points; Brenda Hanson four; Lyndie Cook, Dino Champion, and Gina Bartolomei two points each, in addition to grabbing a host of rebounds, and contributing some alert defense, quick-handed steals and feeding passes between them. JonAnn Hamilton, Mary Christenson, and others who didn't score contributed to assists, rebounds, or team defense. Rincon Valley Junior High.
