THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24,1987 SPORTS THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL Wildcats tackle El Molino Friday By DAVE CURL Jdumtl Sport* Editor Football fans searching for a little nostalgia should make their way to Ukiahi Stadium Friday night Fans will get a chance to see a true antique at work, as El Molino's Lions will again jar memories with their "offense of the 30's," the virtually all-running single wing, as Ihey meet Ukiahi in the 'Cats' home opener. The jayvees take the field first, in a 5:45 p.m. contest, followed by the varsity action at 7:45. Varsity coach Jim Larson and staff got a pleasant surprise during their opening 17-13 win at Eureka two weeks ago in the running of fullback Archie Dunsing. The coaching staff knew they had a dependable, hard-working back in Dunsing, but after his impressive effort in Eureka (60 yards in nine carries), where tacklers were literally flying off him, they didn't realize what a threat they had. Not only is he a power runner, he's able to find the holes, and Dunsing has more than enough speed to break off a long gainer. Mark Rogers, who placed well at defensive end in Eureka, suffered a cracked bone in his thumb and will miss 2-3 games. Everybody else seems to be healthy. The Lions, who didn't open their season until last week after having Richmond cancel out on their scheduled opener, had a rough time against one of Ukiahi's league rivals. Opening against Cardinal Newman (which already had one game under its belt) last weekend, (he Lions looked like a team a week behind, as the Cardinals returned the opening kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown en route to a 35-0 romp. El Molino's effort was a typical first game, filled with missed blocks, procedure penalties and forgotten assignments. The Lions, even in their lean years, carry a reputation as always being fierce hitters, a tag Ukiahi also wears. Last season's contest between the two teams, a come-from-behind 20-13 victory for the 'Cats, was a typical game between these two teams. The Lions' defense forced six turnovers in that game, living up to their "hitter" image, while their single wing attack had Ukiahi confused throughout the first half. Using a myriad of misdirection "spinners" along with throwing an occasional pass, the 'Cats were not sure what was coming at them at first a year ago, before making adjustments that stopped the Lions cold in the secomnd half. El Molino, 2-8 last season, may have to scramble to match that record this season, as just eight varsity players return. Not only are they inexperienced, but last season's jayvees were winless, leaving Coach Castleberry with a bit of a void, talent-wise. Among the Lions' returnees are running backs Darien Daviero and Ralph Svara, who combined for 400 yards rushing a year ago. They'll have help up front, as returning linemen Jim Heinze and Casey Furlong head up an offensive line that should open some holes. Depth could be a problem for the Lions, as only 26 players are on this season's roster. KUKI (1400 am) will broadcast the action live, with Frank Segale and Sid Bishop doing the play-byplay, beginning with the pre-game show at 7:30. The 'Cat jayvees are going to have their hands full against the 2-0 Lions, who crushed Upper Lake 35-0 in their opener, then edged Cardinal Newman 7-6 last week, despite blowing several scoring opportunities. Ukiahi, which allowed a minus four yards in total offense in its season opening 17-0 win against Eureka, will be hard pressed to match that number against the Lions, who have moved the ball well in their first two games. Offenses in high gear in men's flag football Visiting Ukiahi harriers defeat Healdsburg By GLENN ERICKSON JMWIM! Sperti Editor Emorrtu* Ukiahi's varsity girls and boys found Healdsburg's fiat three-mile south Alexander Valley Field Stone Winery course to their liking Wednesday, except Matt McKell. With some 100 yards to go, McKell steamed into third place, seconds behind runncnip teammate Joe Stribling, after passing a Greyhound, only to miss a last direction arrow, go off course, and wind up sixth instead of third. Fortunately, it only cost Ukiahi a few points but not the meet, Ukiahi winning the overall race with a collective low of 24 points to 36 by Healdsburg, whose Dan Wilson won in 17 minutes, three seconds. Ukiahi's Joe Stribling turned in perhaps his best race of the season, or his three-race career, as the youngster began to grasp the feel and need to pace, yet set a strong pace, in placing second in 18 minutes, 13 seconds. Ukiahi boys did not have the services of Rand Peaslce, nursing a case of tendinitis. In cross-country the team with the lowest aggregate five-runner score wins, with seven runners eligible for counting. Ukiahi's girls couldn't cope with the pace of Healdsburg's Nicole SCOREBOARD Baseball AMERICAN Eaet 1 Toronto Detroit Milwaukee New York Boiton Baltimore Cleveland Weal Mlnneiota Oakland Kaneat City Tevaa CaHlornla LEAGUE Mvtelon W L 93 59 92 59 84 68 83 69 73 78 63 89 56 95 Dlvlalon W L 82 70 77 75 76 77 73 78 72 81 70 82 66 84 Pet.

But led by Gwen Riddell, second in 22:46, the Lady Wildcats won without further competition, finishing with 20 points, the Lady Greyhounds having only its winning runner in the race. Coach Bill Kubran was pleased with the running of his teams and the way even freshmen and first- year runners are accepting the challenge of keeping up a varsity pace and fighting for points, while knowing full well there will be no frosh- soph or jayvee North Bay League races this season. Non-varsity runners will fight it out in an open division for girls and for boys, come November championship time. Following are the winners and Ukiahi platings and times for the 16 boys and eight girls running. Ukiahi Boys Winner, Dan Wilson (H), 17 minutes, 3 seconds.

Rhodes leads Lady 'Cats Held to one goal the first half and tied at the intermission with Casa Grande at Petaluma's Old Adobe school field Wednesday, Ukiahi's soccer girls unloaded for four goals in the second half to win, 5-1, in a non-North Bay League match. For the second game in succession a Ukiahi girl found the enemy nets for five goals, this time left wing Michelle Rhodes. Last game it was center forward Janet Brown, in a 13-1 victory over Healdsburg. The Lady Wildcats arrived for Wednesday's game barely before the forfeit deadline because of traffic delays. "We had about 10 minutes to warm up, and that's not enough after a 70 or 100-mile bus trip," Coach Sharon Rothrpck said. "We gave visiting El Molino 20 minutes or more warmup when they were an hour late, because we had lights. Our teams traveling south are going Ding-a-lings ««~. Triple Threat. Rock * Bowl Trio..

Stacie Imerone recorded two assists. Casa got a sterling effort from strong Kristi DeVert, who scored the only Lady Gaucho goal. But once the Lady Wildcats got warmed up in the second 40-minute half, it was all over. Cynthia Conception continued to improve in goal for Ukiahi, and got solid help from a defense led by Chris Rogers, Twila Bashford and newcomer Ilia Webb. Ukiah had some 15 shots on goal after a 38-shot effort against Healdsburg. Friday at 4 p.m. the Ukiahi girls, now 3-1, host 1-3 but defensively tough Analy at the Yokayo School (old Pomolita) field.

By DAVE CURL Journal Sports Editor Offenses (and defenses) are getting a little more in tune as Ukiah's adult flag football league is now entering their third week of play. A little more scoring was the norm in week two, with Mill Creek Nursery's 64 point explosion over the O-fers taking both offensive and defensive honors last week. Mill Creek scored five offensive and four defensive touchdowns in their 64-6 rout, with Kelvin Chapman and Flip Fitch taking top honors, scoring 4 and 3 touchdowns respectively. Chapman had a busy night, returning three errant O-fcr passes for interception touchdowns, scoring yet another on a flea-flicker from Fitch, and passing for four more scores, two to Fitch and one each to Matt Howard and Fred Tur-_ ri. He added five 2-point conversions, throwing to Fitch, Turri, Bill Norbury, Keith Gordon and John Smith. The O-fers' only score came on a Doug Willey to Chris Milder pass. Masonite earned their first win of the season, a 18-12 decision over the Pub, as Paul Moore's passing and defense accounted for all three scores for the winners. Moore started off the scoring by returning a Mike Lopez pass for a touchdown, then, on offense, finding Joe Turnbow and Tim King open for six points. The Pub, still searching for their first win of the season, got on the board as Kevin Jennings and Fred Nickle each scored on passes from Mike Lopez. On Sunday, Mill Creek came back for their third win of the season, outlasting Kinney's 26-15. Kelvin Chapman got the scoring started after intercepting a Jamie Alexander pass for yet another defensive touchdown. Chapman later got to experience the feeling he's been giving out the the league's quarterbacks, as Kinney's Sterling Long picked off one of his few errant throws and raced 58 yards for a touchdown. Chapman got back on track, hitting Matt Howard and John Smith for touchdowns, then, on a flea- flicker, Chapman hit John Behnke, who then got the ball to Keith Gor- don for a touchdown on the final play of the evening. Offensively for Kinney's, Alexander found Sterling Long for their only offensive touchdown, adding a one and two-point conversion pass to Brent Kinncy. In Sunday's late game, two Brian Barrett-tp-Estal Cole touchdowns, along with a scoring toss to Chris Milder was enough as the O-fers downed the Pub 18-15 in a light battle. Mike Lopez found Fred Nickle for one touchdown, then, on a trick play, was on the receiving end of a Mark Davie pass for the final score. Kevin Jennings (1 pt.) and Mark Silva (2 pt.) added the conversions.
