THE BAYTOWN SUN GOLF Locals set for region By ED CAMPBELL Golf balls will be filling the air at two area courses this week as the boys and girls Region III tournaments get underway. The girls tourney, which will include Ross S. Sterling and Robert E. Lee in its field, will be held at Clear Lake Golf Club on Monday and Tuesday. The boys tournament, which boasts Ross S. Sterling among its entrants, will be held at Chambers County Golf Course on Thursday and Friday. Lee Coach Mary Taylor said her girls already played the Clear Lake course this season. "We played it earlier, but this is the first time we'll have been back in a while. It's got some long par 4's. We've been hitting our own course every day, and we'll continue to practice through Saturday. I'll recommend that the girls take Sunday off to get their minds on something else." The girls are Dee Dee Balcerak, Andrea Taylor, Pam Doolin and Kathy Til ton. Balcerak and. Taylor will be making their fourth regional tourney appearances. "We hope to get two girls in the 90s and the other two in the low teens," said Taylor. "The girls will just have to be ready to concentrate." Sterling Coach Martha Marti will field the foursome of Melissa Hullum, Kara Poling, Kelly McQueen and Tracy Brodine. "Kara and Kelly have both had good rounds recently," said Marti. "Really, all of them have had a good round at one time or another in the past few days. All the girls are really excited. We'll all need to shoot our best for those two days." Marti said she considered Aldine Eisenhower, Houston Lee and West Orange-Stark to be favorites, as Eisenhower and Lee have beaten the Rangers in tournaments earlier this year. "I'll recommend that all the girls play all through the weekend," said Marti. "They need to keep their minds on their game. All four of our scores will count, we won't be dropping off any fifth high scorer. We need good rounds from everyone." The girls will tee off at 8:30 a.m. Monday and at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Sterling boys coach Woody Walker said he was very excited about this year's Ranger golfers. "I think we have a good chance to go to the state tournament," said Walker. "This is really a dedicated bunch. This is the most dedicated team we've had since the 1976 state team. They have good work habits." "They" are Steve Benham, Scott Hale, Bill Zeglin, Chris Johnson and Mike Badgett. Walker said the low-scoring trio of Benham, Hale and Zeglin are all capable of turning in the low Sterling round in the tournament. "They may be the best threesome we've ever had," said Walker. "All three are capable of being our low scorer at any given time. Any of the three of them could have easily won the district tournament." Walker said the probable favorites to win the regional event, along with Sterling, would be Houston Memorial, Port Neches-Groves and Clear Lake. In both the boys and the girls tourneys, the top two teams will advance to the state meet in Austin. Johnson will be the first Ranger off the tee Thursday, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Tee times for Friday will be determined by Thursday's scores. "It'll be exciting," said Walker. "We feel we have a really good shot at winning it." Peete in control at Houston Open THE WOODLANDS (AP) — Calvin Peete is a golf perfectionist like Hall of Famer Ben Hogan, who thought each hole should result in a birdie. Peete was not perfect Friday but he was close enough, shooting a two-under-par 70 lor a 135 total after 36 holes and a two-shot lead in the $500,000 Houston Open. "I'm somewhat of a perfectionist like Hogan," Peete said. "I read where he once said a man should birdie every hole. So I'm always trying to birdie all 18 holes." Peete failed miserably to attain his own standards Friday but he did make 11 consecutive pars, then two birdies and finished with five more pars to keep the rest of the field at bay. Peete, who had a course- record 65 in the first round, was two strokes ahead of Wayne Grady, Nick Faldo and Tom Watson. Mike Sullivan, who shot a 75 in the opening round, was a little closer to Hogan's theory as he bested Peete's course record Friday with a 63 that included a 29 on the front nine, which ties the PGA Tour low for the year. Sullivan and Jay Haas, who fired a 70 Friday, were tied for fifth with 138s. A total of 78 players made the cut at 145, including gallery favorite and Masters champion Jack Nicklaus, who had to sink a 10-foot putt on the final hole to make the cutoff with a second-round 73. Grady shot a 72 and shared second place at 137 with Faldo, who had a 69 Friday, while Watson had a second- round 68. "It's scary on this course when you hit over water on six holes and the wind comes up," Watson said. "You have to make sure of the places you want to hit." Peete, a two-time winner this year, continued to amaze his fellow pros. "Every course is suited to Calvin," Faldo said of the TPC's tight par-72, 7,042-yard course. "When you stay in the fairway and hit greens like Calvin, the course is suited for you." y. April 17, HM Rangers rally, gain edge By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS At this stage of the NHL playoffs, the idea is to avoid mistakes. The New York Rangers finally got around to doing that as they rallied to beat the Washington Capitals. The Rangers, as has been their wont in the Patrick Division finals, fell behind 2-0 early in the first period on Friday night at the Capital Centre. But they tied the fifth game of the series before the period ended and never allowed the Capitals to get untracked the rest of the way. New York won 4-2 to head home with a 3-2 edge in the best-of- seven series. The Montreal Canadiens also took a 3-2 lead in their Adams Division series with the Hartford NHL playoffs Whalers with a 5-3 triumph. The sixth games of those series are Sunday night in New York and Hartford, respectively- Rangers 4, Capitals 2 The Rangers made a few mistakes early, taking a pair of penalties to allow the Capitals a 5-on-3 skating edge. Washington capitalized with goals by Dave Christian and Scott Stevens to lead 2-0 after only 3:34. Canadiens 5, Whalers 3 Guy Carbonneau scored twice and Mike Lalor got his first playoff goal for Montreal, which grabbed a 3-0 lead by 12:09 on two power-play goals and a short-handed tally. SHAWN SCHIMMING of Ross S. Sterling delivers a pitch during Friday's District 23-5A game with North Shore at Winnie Brown Field. The Rangers dropped a 10-2 decision to their visitors. (Sun staff photo by Angle Bracey) North Shore batters Rangers From Page 1-C third. He scored seconds later when Gene Simpson rapped a single to right. Brian Bohanon grounded out to end the inning, but the Mustangs had more then enough of a bulge at 5-2. Bohanon, in a late-season surge, is making a strong run at district player of the year. The two first-inning Mustang runs were the result of a towering home run by the North Shore pitcher. Bohanon took Schimming's first pitch and put it directly over the center field Scoreboard and over the goal post of the adjacent practice football field. Simpson crossed the plate ahead of Bohanon on the homer, Bohanon's sixth in league play. Sterling Coach Al Hawthorne said the blast was the first one ever to clear the center field Scoreboard. Bohanon was also masterful on the mound, giving up only five Sterling hits and none of the extra-base variety. The Rangers got three of those hits in the second inning when they scored their runs. Schimming led off with a single to left and moved to second on a fielder's choice. Brian Gore followed with a sharp single to left that sent Schimming home from second. Gore was able to move to second on the throw to the plate. Carlos Lozada fanned for the second out, but Higginbotham came through with a clutch single to left that sent Gore home with the tying run. At least, the score was tied until the fifth. If the Mustangs broke the game open then, they shattered it in the seventh. Nine North Shore batters stepped to the plate and five of them scored. Consecutive doubles by Greg Campbell and Robert Saenz did some of the damage, while outfield errors by Schimming and Bobby Taylor didn't help either. The lone bright spot for the Rangers, now 6-6 in the league, was that some of them were beaded for the prom immediately after the game. "We held them down for a while," said Hawthorne. "But then it was just hits on top of hits. We played good infield defense again, but now the outfield defense is slipping. We played and got beaten by a better baseball team." Sterling will close out its season with a pair of road games. The Rangers will visit Pasadena on Tuesday and Pasadena Dobieon Friday. Both games are slated for 7:30 p.m. starts.

The ultimate defeat came from Sexton, though. After his homer in the third, the Texan came back on a 2-and-2 pitch in the fifth for another round- tripper. This one was good for two runs. Charlie Busby worked the mound for Lee, pitching a six- hitter, walking one and striking out three. Rayburn's Carlos Lerma gave up seven hits, four walks and struck out six. The Ganders won't have things any easier in the final week of play. Tuesday brings a 7 p.m. game at Memorial Field with district-leading Deer Park. Pasadena will help close the campaign at 7 p.m. Friday at Memorial.

For Joe Johnson, it was something special. Gooden, the National League Cy Young Award winner last year, pitched a five-hitter to lead the New York Mets over St. Louis 9-0. Johnson, a 24-year-old right- hander, struck out a career-high nine batters and tossed a four- hitter as the Atlanta Braves stopped the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1. Major Leagues Padres 9, Giants 8 Reliever Craig Lefferts hit the first home run of his major- league career in the bottom of the 12th inning to give San Diego its victory over San Francisco. Expos 4, Cubs 2 Hubie Brooks' home run in the llth inning powered Montreal over Chicago. Prior to his game- winning shot, Brooks had struck out three times in the game, including in the eighth inning with one out and a runner on third, and made an error in the ninth that gave the Cubs an opportunity to win the game. Phillies 6, Pirates 3 Luis Aguayo and Mike Schmidt drove in two runs each to lead Philadelphia over Pittsburgh. The Pirates have now lost four straight games after winning five in a row. Royals 6, Red Sox 0 George Brett and Darryl Motley hit two-run homers, and Charlie Leibrandt pitched a five- hitter, to lead Kansas City over Boston. Yankees 10, Indians 3 Bobby Meacham stroked an RBI single in the fourth inning, and then lined a two-run single in the sixth that gave New York a 4:i lead and sent the Yankees to their sixth straight victory. A's 11, Mariners 2 Moose Haas became .the first four-game winner in the major leagues this season, giving up one run in five innings before leaving with stiffness in his back. White Sox 9, Tigers? Harold Baines hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking, two-run shot in the eighth inning that lifted Chicago over Detroit. Twins 7, Angels 4 Roy Smalley hit a two-run homer and an RBI double, pacing Minnesota past visiting California. Brewers 11, Rangers 1 Teddy Higuera pitched a five- hitter, and Paul Molitor keyed Milwaukee's 18-hit attack with three doubles and a single that drove home four runs in Texas.
