CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1987 CHIU.ICOTHIE, MSSOURI-WSOI-PAGE 7 sports Finals on tap tonight CLAA semifinal Softball action brings out best karter's korner by bob carter, c-t sports editor LUDLOW -- The finals are set for the annual Carroll-Livingston Athletic Association softball tournament. A large crowd was treated to possibly the best and most exciting semifinal round in the tournament history at the Ludlow Ball Park Thursday night. The topper was the well-played Bosworth- Southwest girls game which featured excellent pitching, outstanding defense and plenty of excitement. Defending champ Bosworth rode the 1-hit, 16- strikeout performance of Marilyn Jenkins to a 1-0 extra-inning victory over the scrappy Southwest contingent. It was a scheduled five-inning game which finally ended in the bottom of the ninth. " Game Winner Consecutive singles by pinch-hitter Annette Sanders, Kristy Dilley and Kristy Corf loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of ninth for Bosworth and the end seemed a batter away. No problem?'Wrong! The next Bosworth batter, Mona Link, flied out to left. Sanders, tagging at third, darted home only to get gunned down at the plate on a perfect throw by the Southwest leftfielder. Now with two outs, Jenkins-stepped to the plate and helped her own cause with a game-winning RBI single. Shannon Gilliland was the losing pitcher. She recorded seven strikeouts. Gilliland had a bunt single in the fifth. Meet The Hornets ' Finals Tonight In other semifinal games Thursday night, the Southwest boys slipped past Meadville, 8-5, in another extra inning affair; the Wheeling boys shutout Hale, 3-0; and the Meadville girls rolled over Wheeling, 13-2. The two championship games (seven innings) and two third place games (five innings) are scheduled tonight: 5:00, Southwest girls vs. Wheeling (third place); 6:15, Hale boys vs. Meadville (third place); 7:30, Meadville girls vs. Bosworth (championship); and, 8:45, Wheeling boys vs. Southwest (championship). Southwest Boys The Southwest boys scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth on two errors, a walk, a hit batter and three wild pitches to turn back upset- minded Meadville, 8-5. Jason Hudgins chalked up the victory in relief of Shane Wooden. Jack Friesner suffered the setback. Meadville took the early lead with four runs in the first, thanks to three walks and triples by Brian Sutton and Mike Holcer. Southwest scored two runs in the fifth to tie the game at 5-all. Aaron R o u n k l e s tripled for Southwest. Wheeling Boys Dean Tolle fired a three-hitter and ripped a RBI triple in leading top- seeded Wheeling to a 3-0 win over Hale. Tolle recorded six strikeouts. Clint Heussner took the loss. Wheeling scored all three runs in the first on a double by John Hicks and a triple by Tolle. Tim Oden, Rick Boley and Brett Peterson all singled for Hale. Meadville Girls The Meadville girls exploded for six runs in the third inning enroute to a 13-2 victory over Wheeling. Jennie Thome, who went 3-for-4, belted a 3- run homer in the third. Kristy Friesner pocketed the victory. Kristy Meyers was the losing pitcher. Sherri Hicks went 2-for-3 in pacing Wheeling at the plate. Wheeling pushed across a run in both the second and fourth innings.

He also will provide pregame, halftime and postgame reports from TBS Studios in Atlanta during the network's coverage of Southeastern Conference college football which kicked off last Saturday. Sager is married to the former Lisa Gabel of Chillicothe. They have a daughter, 17-month- year old Kacy. Lisa, a 1979 CHS graduate, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gabel of 1412 Forest Drive. Along with The Coors Sports Page co-anchor Charlie Neal, Sager will moderate the half-holir program, which offers viewers expert commentary and live debate among key sports figures on the latest issues and happenings. The Coors Sports Page airs live ea"ch Sunday at 11:00-11:30 p.m. (ET) on SuperStation WTBS. Sager comes to SuperStation from CNN where he served as co-anchor of the network's weekend wrap-up programs, Sports Saturday and Sports Sunday. Sager also anchored TBS Sports' college football scoreboards for four seasons (1982-85) on SuperStation WTBS.

SUPPORT THE HORNETS The Chillicothe Hornets will need all the support they can get when they travel to Marshall for a 7:30 non-conference clash with the arch-rival Owls tonight. Marshall owns a slight 12-10 advantage over Chillicothe in one of the state's most competitive gridiron rivalries. So don those flashy red colors and go support the Hornets at Marshall tonight. tf^lii-frl nrkT»C! * n Northwest Missouri VF UH1UUI 55 hvRodKreen by Rod Green NFL strike?

AP) -- The National Football League Players Association says it will strike on Sept. 22. Team owners say they will play games with whatever players they can find. Having established those positions, they'll now get down to the business of trying to prevent that from happening. the owners' plan was a "dumb idea." Allen said fans wouldn't accept it and that veterans wouldn't cross picket lines. Some players have said they probably would play even if their teammates struck -- among them San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana and New York Jets running Donlan "said"talks resume' Saturday at a site yet to be determined. Management Council officials say it is likely to be outside New York and Washington and unlikely to be disclosed to the media or public. "We're going to work back Freeman McNeil, around the clock to "trjrfo get an agreement," Jack, Donlan, the chief management negotiator, said Thursday after owners voted to play with free agents and those players wno choose not to walk out. A war of rhetoric has replaced bargaining since the players' contract expired Aug. 31. After 17 sessions that accomplished little between April 20 and Aug. 14, the two sides have met only once, The 4 J /2-hour meet- I ing on Sept. 2 broke off I over the issue of security for player representatives. Telephone calls to the players' union Thursday night after a staff meeting were not answered. However, Doug Allen, the assistant executive di- Irector of the union, told |the Washington Post thaf Flocks of doves are becoming more visible around the northwest Missouri countryside and they dust along gravel roads or rest on adjacent power lines. Local wing- shooters recognize and welcome this progression of natural events as the avant-garde of fall gamebird hunting season yet to come. Beginning on the first day of September, Show- Me State scattergunners start unlimbering the shooting shoulder and honing hand-eye coordination as they take to the field in pursuit of the elusive feathered bomb- tion of the average number of sporting shots taken per dove in the bag. Prospects for the 1987 Missouri dove season are good almost everywhere in the state. According to the Conservation Department's cooperator dove surveys that are taken along 112 routes of 20 miles each throughout the state, all but one of the state's eight regions show substantial increases in the number of doves reported. The overall average of the surveys is 1.93 doves per mile, compared to 1.51 last year, a 27 percent increase statewide. shell, thejmorniiig dove. - Unfortunately, according to sight statistics, the Dedicated dove hunters v -"·"'-- -·--· --*··-- Jayvee opens Monday The Chillicothe junior varsity football team opens the season at Savannah Monday night.

Connoisseurs of the little gamebird reload mountains of light-load 7V2 or 8 shot shells or purchase an equal amount of tailor-mades. No target is so elusive as pass-shooting the erratically flying "little pigeon" as it zig-zags, darting in and out of tree tops and even open skies to avoid a shot pattern. Expert wingshooters are very careful to make no men- northwest prairie is the only region where sightings are down over last year, some 17 percent. The mourning dove, as the only native dove or pigeon, is the number one f amebird in the United tates today. With a population of about 500 million each fall, only some 1 0 percent will be taken nationwide by hunters. Like most gamebirds, doves have a high mortality rate. Studies have shown that regardless of hunting, about 70 percent of the dove population would be lost annually. Most are lost to disease and winterkill, but the high reproductive capacity of those individuals around come spring renew dove numbers. While a few states consider the dove a songbird STEVE STILWELL , a 6-2, 160-pound junior, starts at offensive end for the Hornets. He has good speed and good hands.

Diddiwon 178452 AM and thus without legal hunting season, its behavior and ability to sustain consistently high surplus populations place it in the gamebird category. Found nesting in all 48 continu- uous states, southern Alaska, Canada, and Mexico, pairs may raise as high as a dozen young per year in northern climes. And they may reproduce year-round in the Sun Belt down south. Usually for today's wildlife in dwindling habitat, man's changes in the landscape may" actually benefit the mourning dove. The incredibly productive dove factories are just as often found in suburban yards as in natural fields -- or in pine-clad cemeteries and urban village greens as in wide- open rural expanses. The forests, cleared to grain- fields, provides the versatile birds large amounts of seed foods. While the dove is considered a migratroy bird, the harvested crop fields with waste grain and annual seeds draw some doves to stay and endure the Missouri winters as permanent residents. The liberal Missouri bag limits of 10 daily and 20 in possession allow dove hunters an upper limit not always recognized -- not because of the availability of the game but because of the shooting skill required. Even though the 1987 season extends through Nov. 9, a cold front with its chilling rain sometimes toward the end of September usually drives the locally staging birds into "premature" migration. If the weather stays nice, the cutting of late- season ensilage, pasture stubble fields to clean the scattered seed and grain. Once recognized, dove hunters should position themselves along the flyway field edges in concealment cover for the best pass shooting. Around any field there are landmarks that for some reason seems to attract flying doves to pass over and by. A large tree in the edge border always seems to form a natural affinity fo their flight plans. If it is a dead snag or has defoliated limbs, they usually land to survey the area and even take feeding rests. A large tree located in the field also provides a resting attractant and is often a spot to await pass shooting. A source of water, especially near a feeding area, with a sloping bare bank also provides an attractant for dove flight as well as a watering hole for thirsty birds. Since doves are creatures of habit, using the same flight pathways until the feeding areas are fed out or exessively shot over, hunters can often predict local feeding flyways. By observing bird movement, hunters can change positions accordingly. The diversity of nesting site selection and habitat preference, the high reproductive capacity, and the sporting qualities make the mourning dove a wing- shooter's delight...Outdoors in Northwest Missouri.
