THE BAYTOWIN SUN Wednesday, August 26, 1987 3-B Galena Park drops opener to Ganders from Page i-B the Yellowjackets' Shawn Lockler closed out the game. , Taylor saw something different in her players when they took the court for the third game. "They seemed more determined,"'she said. That helped them jump to a 3-0 lead on scoring serves by Hart, and they moved to a 5-2 lead when a scoring drought hit both squads. They exchanged 16 serves without a point being scored, before a strong serve by•'Hart broke the string and made it 6-2. ; Tammy Moses and Navar turned in some strong net play as Krista Bosse served for four points to run the lead to 11-3. Jennifer McCormick followed with some strong 'serving which: resulted in three more points, before Navar served to end the 75- minute match. i In the first game, Lee opened a 9-1 lead but had to stave off a Galena Park rally which cut the margin to 9-8. With Bosse dominating the net as she did all night, the Ganders were able to reel off six of the next seven points for the opening-game win. On the night. Hart led Lee's scoring with 13 points, while Bosse had eight, McCormick served for seven and N'avar served for six. Volanda Valentine and Lockler shared top- scoring honors for Galena Park with six points. Taylor was pleased by her team's overall performance and commended the play of sophomores McCormick. Kristi Foreman. Michelle Me- Cune and Kelly Mullins. "We made some young mistakes early in the match, but once we settled down 1 was pleased," she said. "All four <sophomores* got to play tonight and they got some tough experience because Galena Park keeps the ball coming back at you." There were areas Taylor saw which she said will need to be improved in coining matches, with the transition game topping the list. "Our transition game from offense to defense needs work," she said. "In scrimmages you're just running time, but this is a much faster-paced game and you need to react quicker to the transition game." Taylor also felt the Ganders were not productive enough when making serve substitutions. "You've got to score on that, and we gave a lot of points away." she saidl ^That's a crucial substitution. The girl you put in there (to serve) has got to be mentally ready when she goes in. That's something that's hard to do in the first ballgame of the year'' On the whole; Taylor graded the opening performance a success. "We did some things well, but there's still a lot of polishing to do," she said. While she hopes her players learned something from their second-game fade, she wasn't surprised to see the match go to a third game. It's happened before. "Lee is famous for playing three-game matches," she said with a laugh, "especially when it comes to playing Galena Park. When we take a road trip we like to get our money's worth. I just hope it doesn't become a habit this year." The varsity's victory gave the Ganders two wins on the night. The junior varsity rallied to defeat Galena Park 6-15 s 15-12.15-9. with Shantel Hart leading the way with 13 service points. In freshman action, Galena Park took a 15-11. ,15-12 decision. Lee was paced by Chandra Green's seven points. The junior varsity will host Santa Fe at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, with the freshman squads meeting at 5:30 p.m. The varsity will.play Friday and Saturday in the La Porte Tournament. Liberty hands RSS defeat in 2 games From Page l-B point, but Porter's shot and Stevenson's serve were disallowed: One of the mental mistakes that plagued Sterling all night cropped up to turn the game around Sterling was not awarded the point and Liberty was given service after the Rangers were called for breaking their service rotation. "We switch positions on defense, and on offense we are supposed to switch back." Bargainer said. "We failed to switch back and were caught not getting into the right service order. After that. Liberty scored one point to go up,15-N. Sterling did have one last opportunity to get back in the game as Liberty Jost its serve, but the Rangers were.unable to convert with Stevenson serving. Liberty then took the serve and scored the game point as Velma James served just inside the out-of-bounds line. Sterling was never in the first game as it managed only five points. In that game, the Rangers were not hitting the ball well, with many shots going awry. "We just made too many errors. Our sets were not very good and we just did not do a good job," Bargainer said. "We expected them to be rusty their first time out but we thought they would settle down and start playing, but we did not do that." Teresa Rollo was the high server for Sterljng in the first game with two points. Sherry Bates and Laura Kind both served one point. Liberty got off to an early 9-1 lead and never looked back, Brenda Wiebelhaus and Sam Haley both served four points. Liberty scored three points with Kendra Blackmon serving, and two each with Carolyn Bankhead and James serving. "It's not something so bad that we are going to give up." Bargainer said of Sterling's performance. "We are just going to have to work harder on some of the areas we did not do well in." Sterling will play at 7 p.m. Thursday at La Porte. In earlier action Tuesday. Sterling's junior varsity won its match against Liberty in sweeping two games 15-9 and 15-6. Kristi Campbell was the top server with 10 points and Grace Anne McKay served eight. Nelda Guidry and Patrica Henderson had kills, with Kristi Campbell leading the team with three aces. The freshman ; team also won its match by sweeping Liberty 15-6, 15-11. Tammy Ward served seven points and Cassy Banks served six. The freshman and junior varsity teams will play at La Porte Thursday, with the freshmen starting at 5 p.m and the J.V set for 6 p.m. Taiwan opens LL Series with 7-0 win WILL1AMSPORT, Pa <AP)~ • Taiwan Coach Yu Jung-Hsing -said his players were nervous in ' the opening game of the Little League World Series. The 'scoreboard certainly didn't refleclH. " Wang Pei-Ching threw a two- hitter arid hit a home run as the ' juggernaut from Hua Lian, •Taiwan, act down a mostly American team from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, 7-0 in an opening- round game Tuesday. In the other quarterfinal game Tuesday, brad Ash threw a three-hitter and Rich Hudleslon homered to give Chesterfield, Ind., champions of the U.S. Central region, a 4-1 victory over Morristown, Tcnn., the Southern champs. A&M's Stuttip won't pressure himself COLLEGE STATION (AP) — Craig Stump has discovered that looking over his shoulder is not conducive to playing quarterback for Texas A&M. Stump, in his fifth season with the two-time Southwest Conference champion Aggies, is the starting quarterback going into fall drills and he won't worry about the challenge for his job from red-shirt freshman Lance Pavlas. The Bryan Daily Eagle conducted a poll of SWC touring writers Tuesday asking who would be the starting quarterback by season's end. Stump received seven votes and Pavlas got six. Stump will rely on Coach Jackie Sherrill's vote. "I've been told that it's my job, to relax and play and not worry about looking over my shoulder." Stump said. "So all I have to do is not put pressure on myself, relax and play the game. "1 don't know of any quarterback who could play well under those conditions if he's worried about his job.'' ; Stump has spent the past two seasons playing behind Kevin Murray, who finishedihis career as the No. 2 all-time SWC passer in yards with 6,506 and set a league record with 48 career touchdown passes. ; Murray was slowed his , final year by an ankle injury, which limited his mobility and required more emphasis on his strong passing arm. "We won't be able to get into any shootouts without Kevin," A&M Coach Jackie Sherrill said. "We have to avoid those third I and eight and third and 12 situations," The Aggies may not have the big play capabilities that carrie with Murray's arm but Stump thinks the Aggie offense will be more versatile. "Kevin Murray did a lot of great things here but I can't be a Kevin Murray. If.I;try that, we won't be successful," Stump said. "I don't think it's a secret with Kevin's ankle, we couldn't roll out much. ; "Last year, if we lined up in a 1-back set, we were either going to give it to (Roger) Vick between the tackles or threw it. In the 2-back, we were usually in the I-formation and we'd run. "This year, I don't think it'll be as easy for the defense to pick out what we're going to do. We'll be more effective because we'll keep the defenses honest." Pavlas led Tomball to the state Class 4A finals two straight years, throwing for 3,410, yards and 46 touchdowns in those two seasons. He's generally considered the Aggie's future starter but he doesn't want to speculate when he'll take over. Fenley expects good showing from team From Page l-B It wasn't technique I was concerned with as much as the mental aspect." To combat that problem. Fenley feels the offensive players must learn more about defenses. "If you play offensive football now, you have to know defenses." he said. While he saw areas which heeded work following the West Brook scrimmage, Fenley expects the team to turn in a good showing this week. Workouts since then have been encouraging- "The kids are working hard." he said. "We had a good Monday workout, and in Saturday's workout we spent time correcting some of the mistakes we had made in the scrimmage." Additional time in pads should be helpful this week. The Rangers had been in pads for only five workouts before heading to Beaumont. "I think that will have an effect, and a lot of these kids were playing varsity football for the first time the other night," Fenley said. "The more you do, the more accustomed you get to it." Sterling has also be spending more time preparing for the La Porte scrimmage than it did for the West Brook outing. "We'll plan a little more for it," Fenley said. "This one is a week away from our opening . game, so we need to treat it more like a game. We want to give the kids a better chance to show what they can do." The : underclassmen are scheduled to scrimmage starting at 5 p.m. There will be no admission charged. McGaughey returns to REL practice From Page l-B "a lot of mental work." Another workout is planned for Saturday, which leads to the start of game week No. Ion Monday. Gander notes: Junior'running back Chris McGaughey returned to practice this week after being out of town on personal business. Although he has missed all'of the team's contact work, he should see some action against Alvin . . i. The freshman and ;junior varsity players will begin scrimmaging at 5 p.m. Thursday . . . Because of teachers' in-service meetings this week, ^REL is holding only one workout per day at 4:45 p.m. Purchase Required for Rebate BONUS 1 REBATE CERTJRCATi I • twioS * ' ' : • iv*»K**, ™» nTM?' .*"»•"-i«" r; "T.'^''; .
