2-B THE BAYTOWN SUN Monday, \ugu.t 24, UNIT Rangers will rely on senior players From Page l-B respectable performance last year, when it had only one senior. So Bargainer is ready for the remainder of the team to come of age this season. However, she has also been pleased with the play of the younger girls in the program. "Our seniors have been doing a real good job in leading the team," she said. "The youngsters are also coming along real well." Seniors returning include Sherry Bates, Rene Dalcour, Shari Don Herrington and Laura Kincl. Bargainer points to experience as one of her team's strengths. The squad is not without a weakness, however. The main problem Bargainer has encountered is lack of power. She hopes that will improve before the District 23-5A season gets under way Sept. 15 with a home match against North Shore. "We are lacking in power, but that will come.'' Bargainer said. "We hope to start hitting the ball a little harder." The scrimmages have served another purpose for Bargainer. By watching the girls play in game situations, she has been able to formulate the best lineup possible. She said she has not decided on a set lineup, but will use the first few: matches of the season to make that determination. "Everyone has been playing well." Bargainer said. "Everyone is still fighting for the positions on the team. It is a good situation to be in." Bargainer hopes her team will BEV BARGAINER be in the thick of the district race. She said the league may be one of the toughest in the state. "There are four real fine teams in the district," Bargainer said. "I like to think that we are one of them." Bargainer said Deer Park. Dobie and Robert E. Lee should be the other top contenders. "Our district is always strong. 7 ' she said. "Deer Park always has a real fine team and Lee will have a good team. It will have a lot of people returning. They always play us tough, being cross-town rivals. Dobie also always has good teams." Bargainer said the leadership on her team will be a plus in the district race. She said if the team manages to improve its power play and keeps working and improving on fundamentals, it should enjoy a good season. "The basic skills, like passing and setting, are important. We've been improving on those areas." Bargainer said. Taylor is expecting tough district race From Page l-B a solid.preseason slate Tuesday, when REL pays a visit for a 7 p.m. varsity match. When the 23-5A race begins Sept. 15 at Pasadena, Taylor looks for a wide-open race. "It should be interesting." she said. "Last year, with the exception of . Deer Park going undefeated, everybody was fighting for second place right down to the w'ire. I think you'll see that again this year. 1 don't know if anybody will go undefeated; I'd be surprised if that happens because our district is getting more competitive." Taylor feels Deer Park. Ross S. Sterling. Pasadena and Pasadena Dobie have shots at the playoffs. MARY TAYLOR No matter who is in contention, however. Taylor hopes her Ganders will make that 50-mile distance of a year ago disappear this season. MICHELIN Wl 0OT 'IM FULLER TIRE CO. Ml. Keep Up With Sports in The Bavtown Sun DEAL &Show Your Wheels!

La. lAP) There was only one conclusion lo be drawn from three sacks, numerous pressures, a total of 25 yards rushing and failure to score on three tries from the 1- yard line: poor blocking. "We didn't block anybody," said New Orleans Saints Coach Jim Mora. "We blocked very poorly for the run. We haven't blocked anybody in two weeks, and I'm talking about when they had their good people in there. "Our line didn't block. Our backs didn't block. Overall, we just blocked poorly." Mora said he might trim the roster some today. "Yeah, I'm anticipating some (cuts.) I haven't decided how many, if any. or who." he said Sunday evening. "Rut there's a chance somebody could be let go." Bobby Hebert played every offensive down in the lti-13 loss to the Houston Oilers Saturday, but Mora said that's no indication that he has moved ahead of Dave Wilson in the race to see who becomes the starting quarterback. Wilson probably will start NFL against Pittsburgh on Saturday. Mora said , Heberi. completed 1(5 of :i'2 passes for 1!10 yards and a touchdown He was sacked three times and chased from the pocket repeatedly by the Houston pass rush. The Saints gained only 25 yards rushing, with Rueben Mayes the leading ball earner with 15 yards on in attempts. "We were an inept offensive football lea m last night." .Mora said. "Like a lot of guys. Bobby did some good things. and he did.some bad things Wilson had a sore back and didn't throw through most of the week leading up to the 'game. Cowboys handle 49rrs SAN FRANCISCO >A|>: The Dallas Cowboys played like a team reborn in their rejuvenating i:t-:t exhibition win over the San Francisco -59ers on Saturday nigh! To be sure, this was a different Dallas than the one that went down iw-O against the San Diego Chargers only a week earlier. "It was an entirely different attitude on the field." said the C o w b o y s' D a n n y W li i t e. "We're improving and that is the important thing." Dallas Head Coach Tom Landry seconded the motion "We've come a long ways," Landry said "We came oil a cycle last year where we lost seven ol eight. We need to reverse that ami this will help us " Against San Diego, the Cowboys' offense totaled 2uK yards After one period Saturday night. Dallas had a 1M-1H yardage advantage and a Hi-il lead over the 4lH-rs. The Cowboys held their lead with the help of ihree ir.lercep- lions, including two by F.ver son Walls, of passes thrown by Steve Young in the second half "I was trying to make something happen to put some points on the board I'm not real happy about tonight's performance." Young said In the first half, the 4iH?r.s' Joe Montana had an u-for 7 passing start and completed onlv five of n; for 4(> vards Wild Bunch i finishes 1st The Wild Bunch placed first in the Kings and Queens Bowling Tournament, which was com* pleted recently at Bay Lanes.
