WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23,1987 SPORTS THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Wildcat hooters get past Wolverines LA. nips S.F. again Ukiahi overcomes sloppy play, 4-3 By DAVE CURL Journal Sport* Editor Sloppy play and tempers that got ^,as hot as the weather still didn't keep host Ukiahi from chalking up its fourth consecutive soccer win Tuesday afternoon, as a pair of second-half Shawn Rothrock goals paced the 'Cats to a 4-3 win over Willits. Coach Dennis Lucido didn't pull any punches in saying "we played poorly, we really didn't deserve to win." But win they did, despite what was, in Lucido's words, "a lack of intensity." Indeed, Ukiahi did play tentatively, especially in the first half when it seemed they allowed Willits to control the action..Ukiahi was constantly having to race back on defense to quell numerous Wolverine scoring attempts. Despite the tempers, which eventually led to Willits playing shcrthanded after two players were red-carded (ejected) in the second half, the Wildcats still played at limes like they were waiting to see what Willits was doing with the ball instead of forcing the action to pressure the goalie. Cliff Lucido, who later was forced out with a foot injury, gave Ukiahi an early 1-0 lead, taking advantage of some confusion in front of the Willits goal. Willits tied the game up a short time later off a spectacular front flip throw-in that caught Ukiahi in SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The magic number for the San Francisco Giants remains on hold at six, where it has been since Saturday, but team Manager Roger Craig says he isn't panicking. "So we lost three in a row," Craig said after Fernando Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Dodger dealt the Giants a frustrating 4-3 defeat Tuesday nght. "That's it. It's over. We're not going to lose tomorrow," he said about Wednesday's game.

After a 1-1 halftime tic, Shawn Rothrock took scoring matters into his own hands (or feet), putting two shots past the Wolverine goalie. Troy Madill followed with die eventual game winner. front of the Ukiahi goalkeeper. Fullback Matt Lucido did have praise for some of his players, saying that Rothrock played very well at times, along with Matt Eiffert, freshman Shokie Lopez and Barrett Crook, the latter often finding himself one-on-one with a streaking Wolverine. The jayvee hooters played well, but, except for a beautiful shot by Aaron Bourke, were held scoreless, as Willils took a 2-1 decision. Ukiahi has a week to work out the bugs before traveling to Sebastopol to play Analy. Ukiahi, Potter spikers lose tough matches Ukiahi's varsity spikers are gaining much needed experience the hard way this season, as the rebuilding Lady 'Cats clawed their way from huge deficits three different limes, but finally ran out of gas in the end as Clear Lake held on for a tough five-set 13-15,15-12, 13-15, 15-5, 15-4 win over Ukiahi in Lakcport Tuesday. Coach Ken Franklin is worried that this team is going to add even 'more gray hairs to his head, especially after falling far behind in every game. Ukiahi was down 13-5 in the first game before roaring back, scoring the final 10 points for the wia Except for the outcome, the second set wasn't much different, as the Lady 'Cats were down 9-0 before SCOREBOARD battling back, though losing 15-12. In the third game, Ukiahi again spotted the Cardinals a good lead (8-1) before roaring back for a 15-13 win. Unfortunately, that style of play takes a lot out of a team, as Ukiahi used up its comebacks for the afternoon. Franklin felt the comebacks were very positive for the team, teaching them that "they can come back, even without a starter," as Kelly Kesey was out with a minor illness. Ukiahi's "bright spot," according to Franklin, was the play of Amy Aikman, who passed well all afternoon. He also singled out the play of Celestina Venturi and Tonya Myers, who both also had good efforts on the court. Franklin can't help but be a little excited over the Tonya Sparks' jayvees, who have a good, tall squad this season. Trish Hathaway, Dorjon Jordan, Michele Berezay and a strong supporting cast eased past Clear Lake 15-7, 15-7 Tuesday to raise their record to 3-0. Sparks is very enthused with the play of her squad, who except for an opening game ( loss to El Molino (they won the final two games against the Lions easily) have steamrolled their opponents so far. While depth is a problem on the varsity, the jayvees have interchangeable starters, with Melissa Rose, Susanna Jackson, Carrie Myers, Dawn Whyburn and Vanessa Vagt all getting plenty of Baseball AMERICAN LEAGUE EM!

MENDOCINO POWER COMPANY" 3001 So State St • Ukiah • 468 9663 Monday Saturday 10.00 5.30 The Giants still lead the National League West by 6/2 games with 11 games remaining. If someone had told Craig before Tuesday's game that his team would hammer three homers—two by Bob Melvin and another by Chili Davis — and collect 10 hits, he probably would have predicted a victory over the Dodgers. But Valenzuela stranded 11 runners including nine in scoring positions, to improve his record to 13-14. playing time. Ukiahi finally gets an opportunity to play at home Thursday, as Cloverdale visits at 5 p.m. After a disastrous start, a 15-0 loss to host Lower Lake, Potter Valley's Bearcats, behind the play, of Kelly McCosker and Tracy Knight, produced a gallant comeback before dropping a four-set 0-15, 12-15, 15-4, 13-15 match to the Trojans Tuesday. Bearcat player Beth Dunsing felt the team played well, except for the first game, where "we really weren't doing anything right." Potter Valley, with a 1-2 record, hopes to improve that mark this Friday, traveling to Boonville to attempt to spike the Anderson Valley Panthers in a 6 p.m. contest. The right grid contest picks Due to looking at a wrong calendar or something, our ad department, confused by the sudden loss of pro contests, goofed. We put, as many of you have noticed, games slated for October 24 in the Journal's football contest, which was located on page 9 of Tuesday's paper. This weekend's college games should have been used. While the tie-breaker remains the same (El Molino at Ukiahi), the other games to choose are the following; at 1-Willits at Kelseyville 2-U.S.C. at California 3-San Jose St. at Stanford 4-San Diego St. at Oregon 5-Nebraska at Arizona St. 6-Miami (Fla.) at Arkansas 7-Northern Illinois Northwestern 8-Auburn at Tennessee 9-Ohio St. at L.S.U 10-Notre Dame at Purdue 11-Florida St. at Michigan St. 12-Boston College at Penn St. We apologize for any inconvenience, and good luck. Sports Briefs Important pool league meeting All pool captains and interested people are urged to attend tonight's 7:30 meeting of the Ukiah Valley Eight-Ball League at Club Calpella League spokesperson Kathy Carlson hopes league play can beein around the first of November. Lady Eagles gain experience Mendocino College's volleyball Eagles came home with a vanload of experience after participating in the 12-team Lassen Invitational Tournament at Susanville last weekend. The Lady Eagles' first draw in their "pool" (teams were divided into two divisions, the team with the best record following round-robin play met the other division's champ for the tourney title) was eventual tourney champion Southwestern Oregon, to whom the Lady Eagles bowed by a 15-4, 15-10 score. Their next opponent wasn't much easier, drawing eventual third place finisher Clackamas (Oregon), which polished the locals off, 15-8, 15-9. Coach Sherry Tuttle, back coaching volleyball after a two-year break from the sport, was pleased with the team's effort, despite a lack of experience, an every-year problem for the Lady Eagles. Mendocino did bounce back to hand Siskiyous a 15-6, 15-12 loss before dropping its final two matches of the tourney to Shasta (15-8, 15-4) and Butte (15-5, 15-10). Mendocino hosts College of the Redwoods hi a non-league matchup this Friday at Carl Purdy Hall at 6:30 p.m. Bay Valley Conference action begins Oct. 3-4 with the BVC Crossover tournament at Sierra College.
