•THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,1987— 1 3 Girls' soccer Ukiahi booters blast Analy NFL strikers to field teams? By GLENN ERICKSON Journal Sport* Editor Emeritus Ukiahi's soccer girls took on stronger competition than they have faced to date in the pre-NBL <excluding Petaluma) season here Friday, and scored a pleasing 3-1 victory over defensively tough •Analy of Sebastopol in a game play- jed on Yokayo field, j The victory raised Ukiah's record to 4-1, with a bye this coming Wednesday and the opening North Bay League game with Finer of Santa Rosa on the Ukiahi field at J4 p.m. this Friday, i ''I'd perhaps rather open with ' omeone else at the start of the NBL it we'll be ready for them, at least it's at home," said coach Sharon othrock, who has a lot of respect "or the pending NBL team by team truggle for the NBL pionship. The Lady Wildcats, playing on lie somewhat shorter, little rougher takayo field because of Friday's botball games, scored first on a pal by Michelle Rhodes, off a pcr- ect feeding pass from Rose Rubal- :aba 18 minutes into the first half. I Tht Analy team, with a deceptive a -4 record but with one of the smallest goals-against marks in the combined NBL-SCL , scored shortly before the half on a hard to stop shot by Blakely Tenderic, a State Cup kaliber soccer player. 1 After the 1-1 intermission, Ukiah's girls responded to Analy's challenge by scoring two unanswered goals, thanks to their own togtherness in asserting constant offensive pressure, and to strong defensive work and some at-times brilliant goal-tending by sophomore Cynthia Conception, playing her first season as goalie. Ukiahi got the ball to Michelle Rhodes again and she scored her seventh goal in two games, then teamed with hard-playing, though hurt, Stacie Imerone on a third insurance goal by Janet Brown. It was a goal of beauty as Imerone, who had twisted her ankle early in the game, sent a surprisingly strong cross-pass from her wing attack position, which Rhodes timed perfectly for a "header" only partially hit by an opponent, and Brown booted in the goal from • in front of the neti In heading the ball, Rhodes reportedly came up with some minor bumps and bruises of her own from a collision with an opponent, added to a bloody nose or minor cuts about the face suffered by Linda Conccpcion, and the assorted aches, pains and strains and pulled muscles of Imerone, Rose Rubalcaba, Brown, Lacey Lopez and others. All will be forgotten, however, in the heat of NBL battles ahead. Other than the one goal for Ana- ly, the Lady Tiger's outstanding State Cup caliber forward was pretty well held in check (almost literally?) by fine shadowing and defensive work by Chris Rogers, Jeni Henrie, Twila Bashford and others. Or frustrated by the courageous Cynthia Conception handling a whistling shot head-on, or desperately but successfully knocking aside two or three more shots inches froim the Ukiah nets. Equally outstanding was Analy's goalie. Another Michael, Michael Cole, playing with determination on Ukiah's defensive left, as the busy Henrie did on the right and Rogers and Bashford in the middle, also drew plaudits from her coach. Coach Rothrock had warned her four freshmen and also inexperienced higher classmen that their playing time Friday might be more limited, and it was. But they could be heard cheering their team from the sidelines, with more-seasoned Brandy Baughn, Lisa Falleri, Lindsay Govc seeing the most relief time. Now comes the fine-tuning of both defense and offense, sharpening reaction time, checking cover- ages and making sure that Lady Wildcats are in position to both cover the ball and to strike in a two or three player follow-up, should shots by frontliners be deflected by enemy goalies. 'Several follow-up scoring opportunities seemed to be missed bdcausc, perhaps unwittingly, teammates were engrossed in watching a wing or center's efforts to break clear and score. NEW YORK (AP) — Stalled negotiations jeopardized a second week of NFL play Saturday as the union revealed that it too may stage makeup games during the strike. Owners continued their own plans to stage strike games with non-union players beginning on Oct. 4, while the union confirmed that a national network had offered to televise games between players who were on strike. The network reportedly was the Fox Broadcasting Co. All this came, amid charges that management was using the issue of free agency to cover up a union-breaking scheme. Three days of negotiations ended Friday in Philadelphia with no further talks scheduled as the strike entered its fifth day Saturday. John Jones, a spokesman for the NFL Management Council, said it didn't appear the two sides could meet again before Thursday. NFLMC executive director Jack Donlan had staff meetings and conference calls with owners scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, "so our agenda is pretty much set" until the end of the week, Jones said. And that posed a clear threat to next weekend's games. When NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle called off this weekend's game, he waited until last Thursday before making the announcement. By that time, it had become clear that it was too late to save the weekend's schedule. "Hopefully we can get something fruitful going next week in the way of negotiations," NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle said Saturday on ABC Radio. Jones indicated the next move was up to the union, while NFL Player's Association executive director Gene Upshaw said he was waiting for a call from Donlan. "The issue of free agency clearly is where we're stuck," Jones said. "I think there needs to be further consideration from the union end." The union has asked for free agency without compensation for players with four years' NFL experience. Management Has made small concessions in the amount of compensation that would be awarded to a team losing a free-agent player. Upshaw said management was purposely stalling negotiations in an attempt to "divide and conquer" the union. "Their strategy is to test the players, to see if the players are willing to take a stand," Upshaw said. "Jack knows my number. But I'm not going to sit by the phone and wait for- the call," Upshaw said. "I'm going out to talk to my players, and we're planning things for those scab games." Upshaw said the AFL-CIO and Teamsters were among other unions "willing to support us." In many NFL cities, picketing appeared to taper off, except in Minnesota. About 20 Vikings picketed outside their training camp and greeted non-union players who were arriving for the first time to practice. There were no reports of violence, however, at any camp where non-strikers were preparing for owners' makeup games. In Atlanta, the combined Sunday editions of the Journal and Constitution reported that Fox Broadcasting Co., the fledgling fourth national network, had talked to the union about staging games among teams made up of striking players. Although i Upshaw would not name the network, he confirmed the union had been approached with such a deal. He said he would give it "serious consideration." Europe expands lead I n Ryder Cup matches . DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — A {devastating performance by Nick JFaldo and fan Woosnam helped Europe expand its lead to five •points over a struggling United iStatcs team Saturday going into the <final round of the Ryder Cup .Matches. ; The Europeans, seeking their •first victory on American soil in the '.biennial matches that began in !1927, took their largest lead ever, 'lOVi-5%. I They now need only four points .from Sunday's 12 singles matches, •each worth one point, to make a suc- fcessful defense of the Cup they won iin 1985, ending*.28-year victory 'drought ; • The Americahs. holding a 21 -4-1 i lead in golfs most important intcr- I national series, won only 114 of a j possible four points in Saturday i morning's foursome competition ! and could do no better than a 2-2 ! split in afternoon fourballs. ! It left captain Jack Nicklaus' I team facing a formidable task. They S now need nine points from the 12 ( singles matches against a team that I has had them on the ropes all the Sway. ! Faldo, the British Open champ| ion from England, and Woosnam, a {Welshman, delivered the biggest [ blow of the day in a lop-sided 5 and 4 trouncing of the Americans' premier pairing, Tom Kite and Curtis Strange, in the afternoon fourballs. Faldo and Woosnam birdicd the first five holes and eight of the first 10 and were 10 under par on their better ball for 14 holes over the Muirfield Village Golf Club course. "We both were clicking. Really, we could have birdied all of the first 11," Faldo said. Faldo and Woos- nam, the leading money-winner on the European tour this year, each made five birdies. Kite and Strange had a better ball of 5-undcr for 14 holes and never had a chance. Andy Bean and Payne Stewart also birdied the first five holes and were not in danger in a 3 and 2 triumph over Eamonn Darcy of Ireland and Gordon Brand Jr. of Scotland. Masters champ Larry Mize and Hal Sutton were 7-under in a 2 and 1 triumph over the Spanish duo of Scve Ballesteros and 21 r year-old Jose-Maria Olazabal. It was the first loss ih foiir matches for the Spaniards. A rally by Larry Nelson and Lanny Wadkins fell just short in the gathering gloom of early evening in a 1-up loss to Sandy Lyle of Scotland and Bemhard Langer of West Germany. Lyle's 20-foot eagle putt on the 15th put the Europeans 3-up with three to play. Wadkins, however, came back with birdies on the next two holes. On the 18th, needing only a half to win the match, Langer's approach stopped just 2 feet from the flag. A half was conceded. In the morning foursomes, in which each member of a two-man team plays alternate shots on the same ball, Kite and Strange scored the Americans' only victory, a 3 and 1 decision over Brand and Jose Rivero of Spain. USC buries California BERKELEY (AP) — Quarterback Rodney Peete passed for one touchdown and ran for another to lead Southern California to a convincing 31-14 victory over California Saturday in the Pac-10 conference opener for both teams. Peete completed 15 of 22 passes for 235 yards to power Southern California's balanced attack that also featured running back Steve Webster, who gained 109 yards on 25 carries and one touchedown. ; Southern California, 1-0 in conference play and 2-1 overall, beat California, 0-1 in conference play and 1-3 overall, in the 75th meeting ,pf the cross-state rivals. The Trojans lead the series 47-24-4. I California quarterback Troy Taylor was picked off three times, including one interception on the USC 6-yard line by Cleveland Colter, who returned the pass 94 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown. Taylor had two touchdown passes, but one was in the waning minutes. He finished the game having completed 18 of 33 passes for 166 yards, having been sacked three times by the Trojan defense. Southern California dominated the game, totalling 461 yards on offense to California's 228 yards. The Trojans rushed for 226 yards, while the Golden Bears could muster only 62 yards on the Santiago eclipses rookie hitting mark LOS ANGELES (AP)—Benito Santiago of the San Diego Padres extended his hitting streak to 28 games with a fifth-inning single Saturday, giving liim the longest streak ever by a major-league rookie. The 22-year-old catcher hit an 0-2 pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Bob Welch to left-center field, extending the National League's longest streak this.season and breaking the mark previously held by James Williams of the 1899 Pittsburgh Pirates. Milwaukee's Paul Molitor put together the majors' longest streak this season, hitting in 39 straight games. Santiago would finish the year with a 36-game streak if he gets a hit in each of the Padres' eight remaining games. ground. Wine Harvest booters busy Soccer skills are on the upswing and mere and more evident in the play of Ukiah's age-group "international football" teams. All three of Ukiah's 12-Under Boys' 'A' team; 14-Under Boys' 'B* team and 14-Under Girls squads demonstrated this on the opening day of the Saturday- Sunday Ukiah Wine Harvest Youth Soccer Tournament played on six Ukiah fields. The,12-under boys won their first game, 5-2, defeating Rohnert Park; the 14-Under boys, some of whom are barely 11, won, 3-0 over defensively tough but offensively frustrated Willits; and the 14-under girls played some excellent soccer but lost to always soccer-strong Chico, 3-1, in first- round games. With as many as six to 12 Saturday, and six Sunday games per 12-under, or 14-under division, the 34-team, 56-game tourney ends late this Sunday afternoon on two Pomolita and four Ukiahi fields. A wrap-up of the tourney's highlights will be carried by the Journal at a later date. As many as 17 or more players per team from 31 visiting teams are taking part in the tourney, each backed by supportive parents who are admiring the hospitality of Ukiah and the superb I Ukiahi facilities. Edwards handles wind for Southwest golf lead ABILENE, Texas (AP) — David Edwards tamed the gusty, tricky Texas winds with a 7-under-par 65 Saturday to take the third-round lead in the $400,000 Southwest Golf Classic. The former Oklahoma State star came from five shots off the pace to take a 1-stroke edge with a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole. "What a game!" he exclaimed after his 65 gave him a 54-hole total of 202,14 under par for three trips around the windswept Fairway Oaks Golf & Racquet Club. "Last week I couldn't hit the side of a wall." Edwards, 31, seeking his first PGA Tour victory since the 1984 Los Angeles Open, was a shot ahead of Hale Irwin, who also shot a 65, and Bob Eastwood, the first- round leader who fashioned a relatively unspectacular 69. Dan Halldorson, who started the day at 12-under and nursing a 2-shot lead, fired an even-par 72 and dropped two strokes off the pace. MarkO'Meara, with a 67, was alone at 205, 'three behind the leader. Steve Pate carved out a 68 and was next at 206, while four other players remained within striking distance at 9-under-par 207, five shots off the lead. That quartet included Lon Hinkle, 68; Ronnie Black, 69; Vance Heafner, 70; and Gil Morg-an,,71. ',, , ,,-.,-.. , Edwards and Irwin provided most of the highlights of a wild afternoon that included two holes in one, one by Hubert Green and the other by O'Meara. Irwin, playing a group ahead of Edwards, recorded eight birdies, including one with a 40-foot putt, but took a bogey at the par-5 third hole when he knocked his second shot in the water. Irwin, with nearly 20 years on the Tour, said he is trying to regain the intensity that marked his most successful years in which he rang up 17 titles, including U.S. Open crowns in 1974 and 1979.
