THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,1987 SPORTS 11 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Ukiahi harriers show promise By DAVE CURL Journal Sped* Editor Ukiahi's harriers started off the 1987 season on a promising note yesterday at Lake Mendocino, finishing second in a three team meet that included Casa Grande and Fort Bragg. Ukiahi finished with a respectable 30 points, just four points behind the winning effort of Casa Grande's Gauchos. While Ukiahi and Casa Grande battled for first place, Fort Bragg's Dan Tell took top individual honors, covering the scenic 2.9 mile course on the west side of Lake Mendocino in a course record 14:37. Second place was taken by Casa's Dan Amaya in a good early season time of 15:08. Third place went to Ukiahi's surprising Joe Stribling, running his first season of Cross Country. The lanky Stribling finished with an outstanding time of 15:15, a strong effort for the newcomer, especially after just a week of practice in a new (to him) sport. Finishing in fourth place, 50 seconds behind Stribling, was Casa's Steve Mayer, with Ukiah- i's Matt McKell on his heels for fifth place in a time of 16:10, yet another surprise for coach Bill Kubran, who saw another of his first-time cross-country runner finish in strong fash- ioa"McKell's effort really surprised me" admitted Kubran, who obviously didn't expect as good a result from the cross-country newcomer. Others finishing in the top 10 for the Wildcats included Greg Howard in 8th place (16:25), and Charley Smyth in 10th (16:30). Others finishing for Ukiahi's varsity runners include Jason Epstein (llth), Jeff Scott (12th), Shawn Titen (17th), and Pat Fitzgerald (20th). No scuff, no stuff as Scott gets longballed SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — had last week," added Will Clark, Houston Astros' ace Mike Scott who belted a pair of two-run home- didn't have a chance against the San rs, one each off Scott and Dave Francisco Giants and several spec- Meads, to conclude the scoring in tators who came to Candlestick the Giants fifth straight victory.

UDS lead to 7 1 / 2 games over Cincy Dive I Ukiahi's Dan Chia (middle) jumps out to an early lead among the open (frosh-soph) runners In yesterday's cross country opener at Lake Mendocino. Ukiahi placed five runners among the top seven In the open division for an easy win, while both varsity and girl runners came In second place In the three team meet. Rand Peaslee finished in 19th place, despite suffering a hamstring injury midway through the course. Without Peaslee's injury, Kubran felt the junior, yet another first timer on the squad, could have finished high enough to change the meet's outcome. Ukiahi's girls found the going rougher against an experienced Fort Bragg squad, placing just three runners in the top 10, Ted by Karla Naumann's 20:07 run over the 2.9 mile course, good for fourth place. Other top 10 finishers included first time runner Gwen Riddell (7th, 21:00) and May Chia (8th). Other performers for Ukiahi this season include Brita Panttaja, Lene Case, Jill Teller, Jenny Riddell, Shawnee Shattuck and Mary Enemark. In the open division (taking the place of the frosh-soph division) the Cats placed five runners in the top seven, with Andrew Kramer and Wayne McClintock finishing 1-2 for Ukiahi, Kramer finishing in 16:43. Other Ukiahi finishers include Dan Chia in fourth place, Mark McKell grabbing sixth place and Hayward Alto nabbing seventh. Kubran was pleased with the team's overall performance, saying "I'm not disappointed. They're right on schedule, especially with so little practice time". Ukiahi hits the road for the first time Saturday, travelling to Fort Bragg to take place in the 14 team Floyd Cooney Invitational. Scott was involved in a scuff-ball controversy last week at the Astrodome while retiring the final 26 Giants in a 4-2 victory. Scott, 15-12, lasted only five- plus innings in San Francisco's 7-1 win on Wednesday. He was immediately reminded of the scuff-ball incident when some of the 25,762 fans waved pieces of sandpaper and, shouted "Cheater!" during the game. Eddie Milner's leadoff homer in the first inning quickly snapped Scott's string and left-hander Dave Dravecky's four-hitter smothered the Astros in a rout that gave the Giants a 7'/i -game lead over idle Cincinnati. Houston dropped 8'/i back. "That wasn't the same Scott who retired 26 in a row last week — maybe the fans got to him," said Mile Aldrete, whose two-run homer in the third inning made it 3-0. "He didn't have the velocity he Girls soccer this season. Plus we're rolling. The momentum is going our way. I've been in a groove lately and I'm very comfortable at the plate." Scott played down the jeering fans and a death threat he learned about when he arrived at The Giants' Magic The San Francisco Giants' "magic number", as listed on the front page of today's paper has dwindled down to just 10 games. What the "magic number" means is any combination of the number of Giant wins or Cincinnati losses equaling 10 would give San Francisco the N.L. West pennant. Humm baby. Ukiahi gets their 'kicks' 20th win eludes Stewart as A's fall ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Oakland Athletics continue to be dogged by a mystery they can't solve — the knuckleball of Texas Rangers pitcher Charlie Hough. Veteran knucklcballcr Hough hit it (the knuckler) and another team can," Hough said after besting Oakland ace Dave Stewart, who failed for the second straight outing to become the major leagues' first 20-game winner. won his fourth game of the season Stewart, 19-11, allowed only five without a loss against the Athletics when he pitched a three-hit, 4-1 victory Wednesday night. Hough, 17-11, is 6-0 in his last seven starts against the Athletics and has an 8-2 record against them at Arlington Stadium.

"I made two bad pitches all night," Stewart said, "and this is the kind of team you can't make mis- takes against. It's the sign of a good team." And while Stewart said he feels confident he'll get his 20th victory before the season's end, Hough said he has a shot at it but won t look beyond his next start. "I've got three or lour more scuts," Stewart said, "and if I do my job, No. 20 will come sooner or later." Hough, too, will get at least three and maybe four more starts, and "I've got a shot at it if the team plays behind me the way it did tonight."

Carter, who also has a career- high 31 homers, singled off Mike Campbell and stole second with Jerry Narron batting for the milestone. California catcher Bob Boone set a major league record when he appeared as a catcher in his 1,919th game. Boone broke the record set by Al Lopez when he appeared behind the plate in the bottom of the first inning in a game against the Kansas City Royals. The record came near the end of Boone's 15th major league season. In a more dubious milestone, Texas Rangers catcher Geno Pet- ralli set a major-league record for passed balls in a season when he dropped a third strike in a game against the Oakland Athletics. it was Petralli's 34th passed ball of the season, breaking the mark of 33 set by J.C. Martin of the Chicago White Sox in 1965. By GLENN ERICKSON Journal Sports Editor Emeritus; Ukiahi's soccer girls today prepared to host always-dangerous El Molino of Forestville at 4 p.m. Friday in Ukiahi Stadium, after returning Wednesday with a 10-1 victory at Healdsburg. The victory leveled the Lady Wildcat's early record to 1-1, after falling 1 -0 to Sonoma County Athletic League soccer power Petaluma last Friday. Ukiahi might have scored still more goals, five in each half as it was, but Coach Sharon Rothrock used second-stringers much of the game, and the Lady Wildcats had opportunities to sharpen their cross-field and lead-passing as well over Healdsburg, just beginning high school soccer. Center-halfback Lacey Lopez showed that some goal-shooting practice paid off at least a little bit, scoring three goals. She played a bit longer than other regulars and joined with steadying forward Linda Conception in stabilizing an opening shakey offense. Once the girls got in the groove, it was all over, though Healdsburg scored on a penalty shot in the first half and trailed 5-1. Cross-firing or "heading" at will, Ukiah's girls fired away at the Greyhounds' goal, as the front-line of Michelle Rhodes, Janet Brown and Stacie Imerone banged home two goals each, with Lisa Bashford adding a corner crossing goal. Bashford also had an assist on a Janet Brown goal, and Michelle Rhodes got an assist on a headed goal by Stacie Imerone. Friday afternoon the Ukiahi girls host El Molino at 4 p.m., and a half-hour after the girls end their game, around 6 p.m., the 1-0 Ukiahi boys, 4-1 winners at Fort Bragg Tuesday, host the first ol two games with Marin Academy. The Ukiahi varsity boys and Marin Academy also play at Ukiahi at 10 a.m. Saturday. Boosters fund-raiser tonight Just a reminder that the Ukiahi Athletic Boosters' Association will hold its 1987 fund-raising dinner and auction tonight at the Broiler Steak House in Redwood Valley. There will be an auction preview and no-host social hour starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, with dinner at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner and auction are $20 each and are available from Ukiahi coaches, boosters or at the door. Each dinner ticket includes a $10 annual membership in the Ukiahi Boosters. Through the sale of dinner-memberships and from sales of scores of auction items, the Boosters hope again to raise upwards of $10,000 toward support of the Ukiahi athletic program for both girls and boys.
