Carter rules out using force, 6 but vows action' to end crisis
WASHINGTON (AP> — President Carter on Friday ruled out any military action against Iran that would cause harm to the hostages in Tehran, but families of the hostages were told that action to free the captives would be taken soon. "I am not going to take any military action that would cause bloodshed or arouse the unstable captors of our hostages to attack them or punish them," the president said. Speaking to a group of State Department employees, Carter said: "I'm going to be very moderate, very cautious." The president made the comments as he left the State Department after a meeting with about 100 relatives of the hostages, who have been held captive by Iranian militants since Nov. 4. t His remarks appeared to indicate a change in the administration attitude toward the Iranian crisis. Administration spokesman consistently have refused to rule out military action ^against I r a n if n o r m a l diplomatic efforts to free the hostages fail. But Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher, speaking to reporters later, said the president has not ruled out any option. "I think the president has made clear he prefers means peaceful in nature to resolve this problem. But the president has also been equally clear that he has maintained his other options." Christopher told reporters after emerging from a briefing for top Senate leaders. While Carter ruled out military action that he fe!t would endanger the hostages inside the emb?ssy. he did not rule out the use of force if the hostages are harmed by the militants holding them. administration officials have left open the option of military action against Iran if the Americans are put on trial. Previously, Carter has warned of "extremely grave consequences" to Iran if the hostages are harmed, and The Iranians have threatened to try the captives as spies unless the United States turns over the deposed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi for trial. The shah is recuperating at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas after undergoing treatment for cancer and gallstones in New York. Carter's meeting with the relatives of the hostages was private, but the sister of one Marine hostage said the family was promised that the government would take action soon to free the Americans. Mrs. Judy Ehrlenbeck of St. Louis refused to comment on what type of action was discussed. She would not say whether the comment had come from the president or from other high U.S. officials who spent some five hours briefing the family members. But asked if the action would come in the near future, she replied: "definitely." The president's public comments were applauded by State Department officials,-and some relatives of the hostages cried. Carter also took the opportunity to criticize Sen. Edward M. Kennedy for his declaration that the deposed Shah of Iran's regime was oppressive. Although he did not mention Kennedy by name, Carter said: "At this time, I'm not interested in trying to resolve whether or not the shah was a good or a bad leader. "We do not intend to confuse the issue by injecting these extraneous issues or arguments. In my opinion it delays the day when we will see these hostages come home.'' Carter's statements, contrasted with his remarks over the monthlong crisis, appeared conciliatory, possibly in response to remarks from Iranian leaders that seemed to hint at the possibility of a negotiated settlement.

'Kill Khomeini' fund
PLAINS, Ga. CAP) — President Carter's mother said Friday night that she has received only 10 cents since saying she would hire an assassin to kill Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini if she had a million dollars "to spare." The comment on Khomeini came during a men's club meeting in Bow, N.H. And during a campaign stop for the president in Hartselle, Ala., on Thursday, Mrs. Carter said she was "getting more money than you ever saw" since making the remark. But "Miss Lillian" told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Friday that she has actually collected only one thin dime. "Yesterday a lady gave me a dime in Alabama — that's all I've received," the president's 81-yearold mother said.

Officials say Kennedy remarks thwarted shah asylum offer
WASHINGTON' ( A P ) — Carter administration officials insisted Friday that criticism of the deposed Shah of Iran by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy caused Argentina to reverse a decision to grant asylum to the deposed monarch. But Argentine officials said they never considered letting the shah enter their country. The dispute began when a White House official told reporters Wednesday that one country had backed out of an agreement to give asylum to the shah because Kennedy was critical of the ousted ruler. Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi now is in Texas, under guard at Lackland Air Force Base while the government seeks a pernanent asylum for him. The White House official's comments were obviousy aimed at Kennedy, who is challenging President Carter for the democratic presidential nomination. The official refused to be publicly identified and would not say what country was involved. But in a report published Friday, columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak identified the country as ArgenKennedy replies. Page A-8 tina. The columnists said Kennedy's criticism of the shah as having run an oppressive regime in Iran "killed the deal" for the shah to go to Argentina. The columnists did not name the source for their information. But the same administration official who initially leveled the blast at Kennedy said the column was accurate. He offered no details. Later, another White House official, also asking that he not be named, said the source who confirmed the accuracy of the column n a m i n g Argentina "did not lie." He said the source did not con fuse one country with another. But Argentinian officials firmly denied the story. "I flatly deny there have been any secret negotiations" on the subject of a d m i t t i n g the shah to Argentina, said Hernan Massini. press attache to the Argentine ambassador to the United States.

Valley students protest rules
By DAVID ROYBAL The New Mexican Staff ESPANOLA—About 100 Espanola Valley High School students walked off campus and m'arched Friday in protest of school regulations which they claim are too restrictive. Complaints centered around a policy prohibiting students from leaving the El Llano campus during school hours and a new rule that, starting Monday, will keep pupils from congregating at the student parking lot. School Principal Jose Benito Chavez said the parking lot rule is intended to curtail drinking, marijuana smoking and other acts. Chavez referred Friday to reports that students have been making love in the parking lot, saying girls have gotten pregnant right behind school buildings. Chavez revealed plans to restrict use of the parking lot in a memorandum to teachers dated Wednesday. Students, upon learning of the plan, complained and set out on their protest march that was stopped short for lack of a city demonstration permit. Three of the protesters later met with Chavez, Superintendent Pete Garcia and other administrators. It was agreed that students, working through their student council, will write rules to govern use of the parking lot. The rules will be considered later by Chavez and his assistant principals for possible adoption. Until such rules are approved, however, students will not be allowed to spend free time on the parking lot. See PROTEST on Page A-8

Santa Fe gains berth in AAAA finals
By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff The Santa Fe Demons unveiled yet another facet of their well-rounded scoring attack Friday night, using their special teams and a timely field goal by Jimmy Duncan to knock off top-ranked Albuquerque Highland 2921 in the Class AAAA semifinals The victory was the 10th straight for Santa Fe and sends the Demons into next weekend's championship battle against Albuquerque Eldorado, a 21-20 winner over Clovis Friday riight. •The Demons' special teams accounted for two key scores in the contest, which kept fans on the edge of their seats despite the icy temperatures. The Santa Fe kickoff team got things rolling.oh the opening kick, forcing Highland to fumble the football away on their own 27 yard line. Five plays later, Demon running back Marco Lucero found the end zone from 10 yards out and the Demons were on their way to their first spot in the state championships since 1943. A Santa Fe special team struck again in the second quarter, this time when they were on the receiving end of a kickoff.

Chadron State ousts College of SF 74-65
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff The College of Santa Fe Knights sleepwalked through the first half of Friday night's game against Chadron State College. And despite the constant prodding of Coach Jim Johnston in the second half, the Knights never woke up. The result was a 74-fi5 loss to the Eagles from Chadron, Neb in the first round of the City Different Jaycee Invitational at the CSF gym. No, the Knights won't be defending their tournament title tonight. In fact, they may have some trouble with Sul Ross University, which was outlasted 110-104 by a pesky New Mexico Highlands University team in the night's opening game. The Eagles didn't travel all the way from the northwest corner of Nebraska for nothing. They used a tight man-to-man defense to shut down the Knights' high-scoring attack, which was amazingly balanced —' with all five starters getting five field goals and scoring in double figures — but unusually impotent. The Eagles broke open a tight game five minutes into the contest, opened up a 12-point lead late in the first half, and never looked back. "That was a good ballclub we played," said a subdued Johnston. "They shot well and played a very poised game. They really hung together, even with our pressure. And we did put a lot of pressure on them." While Johnston was lavish in his praise of the men from Cornhusker country, he was less than pleased with the men in the black-and-whitestriped shirts — the officials that is. "I think they let the game get away from them," Johnston said. "The major turning point was in the first half with about seven or eight minutes left. It got so physical and it turned into a pushing and shoving match. We came out on the losing end. "It was a physical game the entire way. When the game started getting out of hand, we stopped thinking basketball and starting thinking about throwing elbows and pushing. From that point on, I was not pleased with the'officiating. I think I screamed my voice out." Johnston wasn't the only one who was growling. Chadron State coach Ed Sparling almost had a couple of coronaries during the game. He was off his seat and on the court all through the night, chewing out both his players and the officials. But Sparling had little to complain about. His team went to the free throw line 10 more times than the Knights. And that's where the Eagles won the game. They had only one more field goal than the Knights, but they hit on 22 of 29 free throws. Sparling's ace foul shooter- was Jerry Boyce, who made six of nine in the second half, including four in the last minute of the game, when the Knights were frantically trying to chop away at the Eagles' comfortable lead. "I think we showed a lot of courage," Johnston said. "We never quit the whole time, even when we were down by a lot in the second half." But it wasn't enough. KNIGHT NOTES: CSF (3-3) will meet SulRoss University (1-3) in the consolation game tonight at 6:30. In the championship game at 8:30 Highlands (l-l) will battle Chadron State (3-3).

New Mexico suspends Ellenberger, Goldstein
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Universit^SwlS^^t^i^l?:; sity of New Mexico basketball Coach Norm Ellenberger and his chief recruiting assistant were suspended Friday in the midst of a federal in-: vestigation into possible mail fraud and bribery involving grades of junior college transfers. Ellenberger met with university president Dr. William E. Davis and asked that he be suspended. Davis later told a news conference that he would have suspended Ellenberger even if the coach had not volunteered to step aside. "I think that some action had to be taken, it was obvious," Davis said, "and really before we got to that stage of it he volunteered himself. I was prepared to suspend the coach put I did appreciate the fact Norm thought enough of the institution and the program that he volunteered this action until such time he could get counsel and prepare his own ; fccpcnsc." Also suspended was assistant coach Manny Goldstein ™^ Manny Goldstein. . He said the suspensions will remain in effect until legal matters are resolved. Davis also said the university would continue its own internal investigation and that if circumstances later warrant, more senous action against Ellenberger and Goldstein might be taken. Neither Ellenberger nor Goldstein could be reached for comment. Ellenberger, who is in the final year of a three-year contract, will continue to draw his estimated $38,000 a year salary, Davis said. The university president said coaching duties have been turned over to Charlie Harrison, another assistant. Harrison and the Lobos left Albuquerque Friday for Boulder, Colo., where they will open the season tonight against the University of Colorado. Davis said Ellenberger was "deeply shocked and gravely concerned" during their 45-minute meeting, called by Davis after he read transcripts of a tape recording of a conversation of a a between Ellenberger and Goldstein that was filed in an affidavit early Friday in U.S. District Court. "He's concerned about the total situation, not only about his own personal interests but also the interests of the basketball program and, I think, the university," Davis said. But the university president declined to relate anything Ellenberger told him, calling that "privileged communication.'' Davis said the situation was "very damaging to the reputation of the institution as a whole and also very damaging to the athletic program and very damaging to the basketball program specifically... "We're deeply chagrined that this should happen to us. It has and all I know we can do is to try to put the pieces back together and go on from here." Ellenberger sports one of the top won-loss records among coaches across the country. His overall r^ ., M.,., „__ ._ .. record at New Mexico in seven seasons is 134-62, and his teams won Western Athletic Conference titles in 1974 and 1978. Last season's team finished with a 19-10 overall record and took part in the National Invitational Tournament, losing to Texas A&M in the first round. In seven years at New Mexico, Ellenberger has guided the Lobos to four post-season invitations EUenberger took over from Bob King as head coach in 1972 and instituted a free-wheeling offense that made the Lobos one of the top scoring teams in the country. Goldstein is in his second year as a fulUime assistant, coming to UNM from Southwestern Louisiana University where he was an assistant coach. Police recorded a conversation between Ellenberger and Goldstein about obtaining a junior college degree illegally for a Lobo player according to a sworn affidavit by FBI Agent Jack D.Blair. An affidavit was filed as part of an 17, 1979, pursuant to FBI investigation of alleged mail wire interception, an authorized fraud and bribery in the handling of following exchanges. included the academic records of athletes Goldstein: "I got him a degree an recruited by UNM.

Campus in a flurry as Demons head for state
By PAULA MOYA The Santa Fe High Demon Football 'team is going to State!. This may not be news to the ears of the SFHS population, but it certainly .is music to the ears of students, teachers, administrators and the football team alike. And it's the sort of music that hasn't been heard around Santa Fe High for 36 years. ;The last SFHS football team to journey to the state championship game (and win it) was the team of 1943. The district 1AAAA State Championship game will be played tonight at 7:30. Due to the fact that the Eldorado Eagles won the coin toss last Sunday, the game will be at University Stadium in Albuquerque. All week Santa Fe High has been in a flurry of preparation. John "Bouncer" Sena. Assistant Principal and Activities rnnrrtinntnr at SFHS, was on KVSF urging Santa Feans to go to the game and support the Demons. The Demon Boosters arranged to have special buses traveling down to the game lor the suprisingly low price of S4 per student. The price includes admission. Seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen were challenging the other classes to see which could fill the most buses — at 42 students a bus. Sena said they'd take "as many as we can fill." Students were encouraged to wear blue and gold to the game and take the pom-poms donated to the student body by Santa Fe merchants. They, along with all other Demon supporters, will be inhabiting the east side of University Stadium The ever-supportive Demon band also plans to attend. They will arrive en msssp • >" imifn-rv,. '^ "i-,v tor the game. However, neither Eldorado nor Santa Fe will march for halftime. A short pep assembly tacked on to the more serious Pearl Harbor Day assembly this morning also served to rouse Demon spirit. Despite the fact that Eldorado is the only team the Demons have lost to during regular season play, optimism reigns high. "I really feel that we're going to win it." said Sena, who, by the way, was one of the winners of the championship team of 1943. Physical Education teacher at SFHS, Bobby Ortiz was another. A dance sponsored by Student Council will be held Saturday night in the Activity Center. Again students are encouraged to wear blue and gold. It is. basically, a Spirit Dance, although the Student Council would like to see it become a viciorv dance.

Demons capture titles; are all-around winners!
By MARTY ESQUIVEX, With all of the fall sports over at SFHS. excluding the football team who knocks helmets with Elc.orado Eagles for the state championship tonight at University Stadium. I have come to a conclusion c.fter a steady evaluation. Santa Fe Demon sports are the best and have proven themselves to be a state powerhpuse. Those'of you who are not abreast of sports at the high school have a lot to learn. Every team sport in "Demon Country" took a first place in its district or regular season. Football, cross-country, volleyball and soccer all captured district 1AAAA championships. That is something to be prouil of. !n short, you could easily wrap it up by saying. cross-country took state, volleyball spiked throughout the season, even if they didn't "kick A.", and the soccer team scored both on and off the field. Boy's cross-country stands above the crowd, reigning a:> state champions for the fifth time m the past 10 years. For the male harriers it was nothing so out of the blue. It was more like an annual thing. They were unde eated champions at 17-0. in their district and the best in the quad-A ranks. Coach John Alire coached a flu stricken team" to the title with apparently little difficulty. On a individual basis. Peter Graham the went undefeated throughout the season enroute to state championship. The girls, competing as a team for the first year, literally ran away with the title by beating a gutsy Manzano bunch who were favored to retain the state championsip for the second year in a row. The Demonettes finished off the season with 14 wins and two second places. They will only lose one runner to graduation and should come back with another powerful team for next year. For all of you lonely guys out there 1 wish you luck in trying to get a female harrier for a date—they're too fast. On the serious side. I really commend the girls on a job well done— they're a credit to our high school. The girls' volleyball team tried to make it two state championshis in a row, but fell short when they lost to a tough Alamogordo bunch in the first round of the state playoffs. The Demonettes theme of kick A. (the A. meaning Alamogordo) turned out to be just a dream as they lost to the Tigers in two games, 15-10 and 15-5. The female spikers sported a fantastic record of 17-1 throughout the season. Coach Leonard Roybal did a great job. and the girls were superb. The soccer team, occasionally termed as the "Invisible Stars." took first place in regular season play.

Scores above national average
By REBEKAH MARIE MADRID Santa Fe High can boast about high scores once again, only this time the Demons have placed on the academic Scoreboard. On October 20. 42 Santa Fe High students took the ACT Assessment Test at the College of Santa Fe. The results 01 the tests for students have been returned and they show the composite scores for the Santa Fe High students are 4.7 points or 24 percent higher than those of the national average. The composite score is compiled by averaging the separate scores received on each of the four subtests. The subtests cover English, math, social sciences and natural sciences. Santa Fe High students also surpassed the national average on each of the subtests. In English the national average stands at 17.4 points while the Santa Fe High scores average out to 21.7 points. In math Santa Fe High averaged 23.5 points as compared to the national average of 16.8 points. In both sciences Santa Fe High scores were significantly higher with 20.0 as compared to 16.6 in social science and 24.8 as comared to 20.4 in natural sciences. The national average is based on the sores of 2.618.707 college bound students who have taken the ACT Assessment Test from 1975 through to 1978. "These are exceptionally good scores for both the over-all composite and the subtest scores." said Santa Fe High senior counselor Martin Jacobson. "We still have to wait to see how the scores will average for the rest of this year, but the kids who took mis first test were really on the

WHAT ARE BIG BROTHERS FOR? - Roger Mariani, a student teacher at SFHS helps his "kid" brother, Richard

Mariani, a student at SFHS, with a chemistry equation.

Sibling rivalry 'tested in SFHS class
By CHRISTIE EAVES For some, the age old sibling rivalry may cause a few problems but in the case of Richard and Roger Mariani, their relationship helps them. SFHS junior Richard, the younger of the two, was faced with a unique kind of situation this year. At the beginning of the school year he learned his older brother Roger, a graduate of Eastern New Mexico University, was going to be a student teacher for his chemistry class. "At first I was hoping and praying that he wouldn't be in my class, but it's turned out pretty neat I guess," said Richard. He hasn't encountered any real problems with the situation and feels this is due to their relationship. "We get along really well," said Richard. Roger, seven years his senior, helps Richard out quite a bit, not only in chemistry but also in their favorite sport, track. "Roger gives me pointers, like how to run a race and what to think about," said Richard. The only thing Richard doesn't like is that, "Dad knows more about my grades." "I expect more of him. Of course I try not to, but it happens," said Roger, the teacher. Ke trys not to pick on Richard or go to the other extreme and "pet" him. "Richard has to work just like the other students in my classes," says Roger. Roger likes to teach and enjoys the input his little brother can give him. He also likes the idea of seeing more of Richard and feels their relationship is growing. Rating his brother as a teacher on a scale of 1 to 10, Richard gives Roger a 7 and said, "I like him better as a brother than as a teacher."

By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff ALBUQUERQUE - It took the Santa Fe Demons 14 minutes Saturday to regain the form they used to capture the 1978 District 1AAAA football crown. The remaining 34 minutes were pure misery for Albuquerque Cibola. Despite a shaky first quarter, the Demons came to life early in the second and unleashed a potent offense and a relentless defense which shut out the Cougars 30-0. The victory opened the season for the Demons, recently picked by New Mexico soprtswriters as the No. 1 Class AAAA team in the state. It was also the third straight year that Santa Fe opened its season with a win over the Cougars. "Two years ago we beat them 8-6 here in Albuquerque and won 10 games," a noticably pleased Santa Fe coach David Church said after the game. "Then last year we won 12-10 in Santa Fe and got 11 in a row. If.you've got good caliber kids, a 30-0 score should indicate we have a good bunch." After watching the Demons work their magic in the final three quarters Saturday, most prep experts Would have to agree. Once the opening-game jitters subsided and the Demons recovered from a first-quarter fumble, the squad proceeded to dominate virtually every aspect of the game.

Demons rout Cibola 30-0 in opener
Running back Jeff Apodaca, who piled up a game-high 114 yards rushing, put the Demons on the soreboardhalfwaythrough the second quarter. He capped an il-pay series with a six-yard run, then quarterback Terry Tinercorupleted a pass toLouis Briones for the extra two points. But it was the Santa Fe defense that accounted for the Demons' other three touchdowns. After the first quarter, the Demons never let the Cougars past the Santa Fe 41 yard line, forcing four turnovers in the process and limiting Cibola to only 133 total yards to Santa Fe's 304. Three of the four turnover resulted in Santa Fe touchdowns. Demon linebacker Mark Martinez was the first player to cash in on a Cougar mistake, pouncing on a fumble at the Cibola 22. Eight plays later, he returned to his offensive slot at halfback and punched his way into the end zone from one yard out. Quartrback Steve Baca put the Demons ahead 10-0 with a perfect conversiton pass to Randy Bertram. Cibola's next mistake came on the following series when quarterback Ed Tanner hobbled the snap from center, hurried his pass under pressure and sent a perfect spiral into the hands of Tiner, who raced 40 yards into the end zone. Baca, the Demon quarterback who alternates every other series with Tiner and doubles as a defensive linebacker, picked off two Cibola passes. His first came right at the halftime buzzer and his second set up the final Santa Fe score in the fourth quarter. Baca intercepted the pass at midfield, ran it back to the Cibola 40, then took over as quarterback and two plays later launched a 40-yard touchdown aerial to Bertram His twopoint conversion passalso hit its mark, again to Bertram. Final satistics showed Baca with 88 of the Demons'93 yard passing. Other than the slow start in the first quarter, the only other dull spot on the Demons'performance wasa whopping 110 yards in penalties. "Everybody was making mental errors," Church said. "Offsides penalties, jumping the court and even holding are all mental errors." Santa Fe will try to cut down on the penalties this Friday when they host Albuquerque Sandia in another nondistrict contest at Magers Field.

Lob os bury Be a vers
A L B U Q U E R Q U E ( A P ) — N e w Mexico quarterback Brad Wright threw for two touchdowns ' a n d ran for another pair Saturday night to spark the Lobos to a 35-16 intersectional college football victory over Oregon State. Wright hit flanker William Owens on a 31-yard TD pass in the first quarter and connected with Chris Combs on a sevenyard scoring strike in the second quarter to get the Lobes off to a fast start. The 6foot-2, 202poand junior bulled in from the two later in the second quarter to give the Lobos a 21-3 halftime advantage. Wright banged in from the one in the fourth quarter and engineered a drive later in that period • that was climaxed by a one-yard plunge by Jamie Fox to balloon New Mexico's lead to 35-10. The victory was New Mexico's second of the season, marking the first time since 1966 the Lobos have opened a campaign with two straight victories. Oregon State, making its 1979 debut, was never able to challenge the Lobos after falling behind in the first half. The Beavers got on the Scoreboard in the first quarter on a 33-yard field goal by Kieron Wolford. Oregon State got its first touchdown of the season in the third quarter on Mike Smith's three-yard run and added the game's final score with about three minutes to go in the game on a 25-yard pass from Scott Richardson to Steve Coury. The versatile Wright keyed the Lobos offensive attack with more than 100 yards in total offense. He was 11-19-0 for 92 yards in the passing department and rushed for 24 yards. First-game mistakes cost the Beavers dearly as a pass interception and two pass interference calls helped the Lobos to their last three touchdowns. New Mexico tackle Shirley Ray and end Charles Baker blasted through the Oregon State offensive line to force the interception that led to the Lobos' final score of the first half. With the oncoming rush, Beaver quarterback Scott Richardson was forced to get rid of the ball and Lobo cornerback Sharay Fields picked it off at his own 34 and romped 'all the way to the Oregon State 15. A 13-yard swing pass from Wright to fullback Mark Williams moved the Lobos down to the two, then Wright cracked into the end zone for his first touchdown. Oregon State outgained New Mexico 343 yards to 339 in total offense, although the stats were not really indicative of the game. New Mexico, relying on a solid ground attack and the iOpoint passing of Wright, had 247 yards rushing and 92 passing.

Academy deals Espanola Valley 5-0 setback
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff ESPANOLA — Espanola Valley High School football coach Tom Lopez believes in miracles. Even though his Sundevil team trailed Albuquerque Academy 5-0 with just 41 seconds left in Saturday's game at Hunter Field, Lopez wasn't about to count his team out. He had a sneaking suspicion that, a miracle was forthcoming —" and his feelings were confirmed. With Academy in punt formation on fourth down and eight from the Espanola 43, Cedric Hay centered the ball five feet over U«e head of punter Bobby Clark, who pounced on the ball way back on the Academy 24-yard line. Sooner than Lopez could say "unbelievable", the Sundevils had the ball just 24 yards away from a season-opening victory. With no timeouts remaining and just 34 seconds left on the clock, Espanola quarterback Abran Salazar took the snap and — much to the disbelief of the sparse crowd — rolled around left end and was stopped at the 21. The clock wound all the way down to four seconds before a last-gasp pass attempt to Joey Salazar was knocked down at the 2-yard line. As quickly and suddenly as the Sundevils had gained a shot at a victory, they had lost it. "It was a pitch sweep designed to go outside, but we didn't get it there and we never made it out of bounds," Lopez said of the play that backfired and cost the Sundevils almost 30 precious seconds. "We had used all our timeouts before so we were in trouble. "It's too bad because we had never lost the game in our minds. After we got the ball, we were ready to go for it. We just didn't get it in." As devastating and heartbreaking as the loss was, Lopez said it wouldn't scar the Sundevils' belief in themselves. "I think a loss like this is gonna help us," Lopez said. "The kids know now that they can do it. They know they're gonna have to work harder this week in practice to do it." If Espanola is to beat Taos on Friday night, it will have to generate ar offensive attack. The Sundevils never once launched a sustained drive on offense and only once did they come close to a score. That came with less than two minutes remaining in the first half when Abran Salazar threw a screen pass to running back Gerald Martinez, who cut back across the center of the field and down the left sideline for a 38-yard gain down to the Academy 20. But Espanola was stopped cold on four plays and failed to score. For the game, the Sundevils managed to grind out just four first downs — and one of them came on a penalty in the first quarter. Espanola rolled up a meager six yards rushing on 27 attempts and could muster only 84 yards total o f f e n s e . Lopez was clearly disturbed with those figures. "We had problems with our line," he said. "We weren't blowing them out and staying low. I thought we would be able to move on the ground, but our line just didn't come through. We'll be working on our blocking a lot this week." Espanola would have come much closer to hitting paydirt if it could have avoided penalties — that dreaded nemesis that invariably curtails offensive productiveness. The Sundevils were penalized 12 times, for 75 yards — and most of the yardage came from motion penalties which were the result of players jumping the snap.

Espanola Valley paired against LA
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff Both Los Alamos and Espanola will be scratching and clawing for some respectability this weekend. There's only one problem — only one is going to get it. Saturday afternoon's game between the two teams isn't being confused with Armageddon. The Hilltoppers, plagued by injuries and an inconsistent offense, have won just one of five games. The Sundevlls, plagued by nearly everything you could think of, have yet to win a game or score a point. Worse yet, .they haven't really come close. The Sundevils lost 71-0 to Gallup last Friday — but it could have been even worse, as shocking as that sounds. Gallup led 63-0 at halftime and both teams agreed that there was Uttle point tn making the afternoon longer than it already was. So the third and four quarters were cut in half — but the result was still one of the most lopsided games in the state this year. "We just had a super poor game — that's all that's to it," Espanola Valley coach Tom Lopez said "I guess disappointed is the best word to describe my feelings. I know we can 1 p!ay better. They're (Gallup) a good ballclub, but us playing as poorly as we did contributed a lot to the 71 points." Lopez has seen enough to know that a winning season isn't in the offing for the Sundevils. With Grants, Santa Fe and Albuquerque High still to come, Lopez would just like to get a victory when his team travels to Los Alamos this weekend. "We're going up there with the attitude that we have to win a ballgame," Lopez said. "I don't think anyone has given up and I don't think they will. It hurts our kids, but it hasn't gotten to the point where they're saying, 'Forget it, we're quitting for the season.' "We will score. We still have that confidence in the kids. One of these days we're gonna unload and score some points." Los Alamos coach Brad Jenkins is hoping the Sundevils don't do it this week. Then again, he's not worrying about it. "Our goal is not to hold them scoreless," Jenkins said. "Our goal is to go out and win. If we're the first team to let them score, then that's the way it goes. "But I don't feel like they're gonna burn us. They've had their problems offensively. They've shown very limited spurts. Their problem is that they make so many gosh darn mistakes. Several times a game, they'll fumble the snap from center. They usually have some missed handoffs. They just can't do anything in stretches." Jenkins hasn't had an easy time preparing the Hilltoppers for the game. How do you guard against overconfidence when you know your opponent has been outscored 182-0 and has lost each successive game by a larger margin? "We're not taking the approach of trying to convince our kids that Espanola can be a great football team," Jenkins sid. "They're not stupid. If you lose by scores like that, you're not great. But we are trying to convince our kids that this is a game we need to win. "We should win the football game. The thing that worries me about playing a team like Espanola is that if you do take them lightly and they score early, they can get hyped up and make it\a tough afternoon. We can't come out lackadaisical and let them do some things." The situation isn't all that rosy in Topperland. Linebacker Jeff Armstrong tore ligaments in his knee against Farmington last weekend, underwent surgery and is lost for the season. The Hilltoppers were thin at linebacker before his loss. Now, they're even thinner. But one of Jenkins' biggest headaches is an inconsistent offense that has moved the ball, but has been able to score just 36 points in five games. "It's been a little disappointing and ". frustrating," Jenkins said. "The most frustrating thing Is that even when we move the ball, we can't get ; points. We were happy that we moved the ball the way we did against". Farmington. But we moved it well • enough that we shouldhave won."

Demons entertain 'Dogs
Br DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff On paper, Albuquerque High School appears to have an offensive formula that could upset the Santa Fe Demons tonight — an explosive air show. The Bulldogs, Santa Fe's top challenger for the District 1AAAA title this season, roll into town with possibly the most polished passing attack in the league. Demon coach David Church, however, says his team is prepared for the attack and is not about to let the Bulldogs spoil the Demons' last homecoming game at Magers Field. Perhaps recalling the last time the Demons went up against a solid passing team (they lost to Albuquerque Eldorado 35-6), Church has been spending much of the past week shoring up his defensive secondary. "They ( A H S ) throw the ball a lot," Church said. "They've got the leading scorer in the city of Albuquerque and their quarterback is second in the city in passing. We'll have to be ready for them." Both teams enter tonight's battle with 2-0 records in 1AAAA competition this season. Albuquerque has polished off Gallup (15-13) and Grants (28-16), while Santa Fe has crushed both Los Alamos (43-G) and Albuquerque West Mesa (61-0). Game time is 7:30 p.m-. "These next two ballgames are the most important of the year for us," said Church, who takes the Demons to Gallup next Friday for another district contest. "We have to be sure we don't lose any in district so we get the home field advantage in the playoffs." If the Demons can get by Albuquerque, their road to the league championship should be a breeze. The only team on the schedule that appears to have a shot at defeating the Demons is Gallup, which lost to the Bulldogs three weeks agoon theirhome field. Although Albuquerque's Bulldogs have yet to develop a threat on the ground, their passing game can be deadly. Quarterback Jeff Wilder is Albuquerque's second-leading passer with 36 completions in 76 attempts. Nine of his passes have gone for touchdowns, and most of those were caught by Greg Miller, the leading scorer in the Duke City with 48 points. Receiver Brad Rockwell, a transfer student from Albuquerque Sandia, has also been a threat in the past two ballgames. Rockwell became eligible two weeks' ago and has since stunned opponents with nine receptions and 100 yards. Santa Fe will counter with its three-man secon-' dary unit consisting of halfbacks Steve Baca and Louis Briones. and Frank Lucero at safety. The Bulldogs' secondary should also have its hands full tonight if the Demons decide to go to the air. Demon quarterback Baca gave fans-a" look at his passing arm last week against Albuquerque West Mesa, passing for three touchdowns and 179 yards. Baca's favorite targets are Mark Martinez, Pierre Gibbons and Alfred Sena. ' - : Martinez also paces a solid Santa Fe rushing attack which has punished opponents with an average of 6.1 yards per rush this season. He'll; be joined in the backfield by Terry Tiner t arid Briones. . ~ The Santa Fe-Albuquerque series includes one of the state's most unusual records.

Santa Fe High School senior Jeff Apodaca will enter the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at Houston, Texas, today for what has' been diagnosed as a malignant tumor of the prostate gland. Jeff's father, former Gov. Jerry Apodaca, said the 17-year-old football player was discovered to have developed the tumor early this week. The tumor was found to be malignant Thursday. "He's going to be okav," Apodaca said. "It's a complication he is going" to beat." Dr. Bob Zone of Santa Fe, who treated Jeff this week, said Thursday that X-rays and a biopsy "discovered a rare malignant tumor of the prostate. Because of its rarity and the need to treat it expeditiously, we are sending the boy to the Anderson Center,'' Zone said. The treatment will involve chemotherapy and may require surgery, he said. "We don't know how long the treatment will take," Zone said. "I am fairly certain he will not be playing football any more this season." Jeff has been an outstanding player on the Demon football team since he was a freshman and was tn have played in tonight's Santa Fe High School homecoming game against Albuquerque High School. Santa Fe coach David Church said Thursday that Jeff "was fine last week but he woke up : Monday morning and couldn't urinate. "All the players and the coaches are confident and optimistic that Jeff will get better," Church said. "Some of the players and coaches have said some things about winning this week's ballgame for Jeff, but I'm not gonna make any reference to dedicating the ball game to him. Jeff means a hell of a lot more to us than any ballgame could ever mean." "There is reason for optimism," Zone said. "In the past few years these once very serious tumors are responding well to chemotherapy, Xray and surgery. "I'm optimistic he is in the very best hands at the Anderson Center," Zone said. Zone said it is indicated the tumor was discovered soon after its development, since there had been no previous symptoms. Apodaca disclosed his son's illness Thursday, saying, "There is no point in hiding it from Jeff or from anyone else."

'The Family' came a long way
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Here's a look back through "The Family" album. In January, President Dan Galbreath of the Pittsburgh Pirates okayed baseball's richest contract for Dave Parker. There were grumblings in steelworker taverns and beauty parlors that Parker was overpaid, but Galbreath was paying the price for big league success. "We had confidence in Pittsburgh as a city, and especially as a baseball city," said Galbreath. who agreed to the reported S5 million pact despite an attendance slump in 1978. In April, Pete. Peterson showed he was a \ general manager of action by dealing erratic shortstop Frank Taveras to the New York Mets for less spectacular but steady Tim Foli. "I never thought Foli would hit.like he did." Peterson said after Foli played solid defense and batted 44 points better than his .244 lifetime average. In May, Manager Chuck Tanner showed he was a man of patience by accenting the positive while last-place Pittsburgh was falling nine games off the pace in the National League East. "We have four months and three weeks left. That's a lot of season," said Tanner. "Our guys will turn it around." In June, Peterson showed he was a burglar as well as'a general manager by acquiring Bill Madfock from San Francisco in a multi-player swap that sent,the Giants pitcher Ed Whitsbn. "I want to make this the Giants' loss and the Pirates' gain," said Madlock, who came to Pittsburgh batting .261 and finished at .298. And in July, August, September and October, Willie Stargell and his Pirate teammates showed they were the comeback, do-it-in the clutch team ofI979. They fought off gutsy Montreal in the tight National League East, they swept Cincinnati in the NL Championship Series and they rallied from a 3-1 deficit to end Baltimore's dream season in the World Series. Then they popped open bottles of champagne and played their clubhouse disco theme song. "We Are Family." over and over. Some cynics suggest there really is no such thing as family togetherness in professional sports and that the Pirates' record .323 Series batting average was a far mightier factor than team unity. "Someone asked me if 'The Family,' was overrated," Stargell said after pounding Baltimore pitching and accepting the Series' MVP Award. "That bothered me because this person didn't live with us and didn't see how we depended on each other . . . We had to scratch, we had to crawl and we did it together because 'We Are .Family.' " The disco tune, by the group Sister Sledge, has one segment that goes. "We've just begun to get our share of this world's delights." What does the future hold for the Pirates'' What about Stargell? Will he be too old next season? Well, he was too old for THIS season at 38 and he carried the team on his back when it counted most. So don't count Willie out.

AP National League All-Stars

Lee, Niekro voted top pitchers
NEW YORK (AP) — Bill Lee. an injuryplagued American Leaguer for the past few seasons, was among those named today to The Associated Press' National League All-Star baseball team for 1979. Lee, selected ar the left-handed pitcher on the AP's NL team, reversed his field this year by winning 16 games for the Montreal Expos and compiling a 3.04 earned run average in 222 innings. The victory total was the most that Lee had compiled since winning 17 games for the Boston Red Sox in 1975. In the three subsequent seasons for Boston, Lee had amassed a total of just 24 triumphs while suffering through an assortment of hurts that included a bad pitching arm. . Lee polled 95 votes from a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters to win the berth over Philadelphia's Steve Carlton, who had 76. Joe Niekro. a 21-game winner with the Houston Astros, was the choice as the right-handed pitcher over teammate J.R. Richard. The voting margin there was 120-83. Bruce Suiter, who posted a league-leading 37 saves for the Chicago Cubs, was the runaway choice as the NL's Ail-Star relief pitcher, collecting 196 votes. San Diego's Dave Win field, with 34 homers, 118 RBI and a .308 batting average, was the leading vote-getter with 216 for one of the outfield berths. The rest of the NL's All-Star outfield included Dave Kingman of the Chicago Cubs with 199 votes and Dave Parker of the Pittsburgh Pirates with 152, both easy winners over their nearest competitor, Cincinnati's George Foster. The remainder of the team included three players from the St. Louis Cardinals — f i r s t ' baseman Keith Hernandez < 176 votes), shortstop Garry Templeton <129> and catcher Ted Simmons (114) — along with second baseman Dave Lopes of the Los Angeles Dodgers (158) and third baseman Mike Schmidt of the Philadelphia Phillies (109). The American League AllStar team, announced earlier, featured four members of the California Angels: Don Baylor as designated hitter, Rod Carew at first base, Bobby Grich at second and Brian Downing behind the plate. -The rest of the team included Boston's Fred Lynn and Jim Rice and Baltimore's Ken 'Singleton in the outfield, Minnesota's Roy Smalley at shortstop,. Kansas City's George Brett at third. Boston's Dennis Eckersley as the right-handed pitcher, Baltimore's M i k e Flanagan as the left-handed pitcher and Texas' Jim Kern as the relief pitcher.

POSITIVE THINKER — Pittsburgh manager Chuck Tanner was credited with turning Pirate fortunes around early in the season, after the club had slumped to last place in the National League East", nine games off the pace in May.

Demon air attack surprises Bulldogs
By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff Santa Fe football fans were expecting an Irnpresslve air show Friday night when Albuquerque High came to town with its pass-oriented offense. They got just what they expected, but from the wrong team. For the second straight week, the third-ranked Demons showed opponents that their passing game can be a threat almost equal to their running attack. Quarterbacks Steve Baca and Terry Tiner threw a combined 22 passes in the Demons' 3&-B homecoming victory. Two of Baca's passes were caught for touchdowns ofi;5 and 5 yards by Alfred Sena. "We threw the ball well tonight," said Church, whose team boosted its record to 6-1 for the year and 3-0 in District 1AAAA. "But we just couldn't catch well. We had receivers open all night." The Albuquerque Bulldogs probably wished they had fared as well with their air attack. The 'Dogs entered Friday's game sporting the No. 2 passer in Albuquerque in quarterback Jeff Wilder, whose favorite target this season has been Greg Miller, who also happened to be the city's leading scorer. Wilder was hit hard by an awesome Santa Fe pass rush and only managed to complete four of 15 attempts and was unable to connect with Miller all night. Miller did manage to put some points on the board for the Bulldogs, however, scoring his team's only touchdown on an 85-yard kickoff return in the second quarter. A trio of running backs contributed to the Demons' scoring attack. Tiner, who spent most of the game at halfback, had his best game of the season with 117 yards in 20 carries including a l-yard touchdown. Frank Lucero stunned Bulldog defenders with a 42-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to boost his total yardage to 70 yards in seven carries. Running back Mark Martinez gave the Demons their only other score, but it occurred while he was alternating as a defensive linebacker. Martinez was the first of two Demons to pick off Bulldog passes, snagging the ball at the 10 yard line and running it in for the score. In the rushing department, he compiled 85 yards in 17 carries. Reyes Aguilar picked off another Wilder pass late in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs had even worse luck when they tried to run the football. Demon defenders held the 'Dogs to only 41 yards on the ground and actually pushed them back five yards in the second half. Wilder suffered the biggest losses as he was sacked six times and finished the ballgame with minus 40 yards. Overall, Santa Fe finished the game with 443 offensive yards, 319 rushing and 124 passing. Albuquerque, which dropped to 4-2 for the year and 2-1 in league play, had 31 yards rushing and 24 passing for 55. They were only able to come up with five y ards inthesecondhaif. The Demon . return to action Friday in Gallup. The Bengals defeated Grants 20-7 Friday night and now stand at 1-1 in league play. Santa Fe and Farmington are now tied for the 1AAAA lead at 3-0.

Weaver top manager
NEW YORK (AP) — Fiery Earl Weaver, who led the American League champion Baltimore Orioles to the best record in baseball this season, is The Associated Press' AL Manager of the Year for the third time in his career. Weaver collected 166 votes from a 'nationwide panel of sports writers .and broadcasters to easily outdistance his nearest competitor, Jim Fregosi of the West-winning California Angels, who had 49 votes.

Demon runners escape with slim victory
ALBUQUERQUE - When Santa Fe High School extended its unbeaten cross country string to II Friday afternoon, it came as no surprise to the rest of the field in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational.

Krepfle making the most of Eagle opportunity
PHILADELPHIA (GNS) — It is a time for I-told-you-sos. "When I traded Charlie Young, I said then we had a player who would make you forget all about Young," Philadelphia coach Dick Vermeil said. That player was Keith Krepfle. The prophecy, doubted by many at the time three years ago, has come true. Young, once a glamor boy of AllPro teams, is now a forgotten man on the Los Angeles Rams bench. Krepfle has blossomed into a solid, if colorless, performer with the Eagles, now tied for the lead with mighty Dallas in the NFC East. "I'm happy to get a chance to start In this league," he said. Now seasoned with three years worth of Sunday afternoons, he still remembers the uncertain days of his career's beginnings. "It was a goal to be a starter," he said. "It's good to have goals. They give you something to shoot for, keep you motivated. When Charlie was traded, I wasn't sure I could be the starter. I did know I was going to get my chance." Krepfle has made the most of the opportunity. He has been one of the bright spots in a season so far filled with many gleaming moments for the Eagles. He leads in average gain per catch with a gaudy 19.6-yards per reception. . Despite the start, Krepfle hasn't relaxed. This larger clone of preacher Vermeil pounds the Eagle bible of success with the same religious fervor. He speaks of hard work, character and goals again. "I've always wanted to play in the playoffs. That's my next goal. That's what I want now. I could have done it last year, but I got hurt. This season looks like I might get my chance." While wounded egos beat in the breasts of some of the beasts that, make up this professional football team, Krepfle harbors no such muffled screams for recognition. "It really doesn't mean anything, making All-Pro or things like that. I just want to play and win. I'm never going to be confused with a good athlete. I never have." The voice is lower, the smile and shoulders somewhat broader, but this 27-year-old Iowa State graduate can mimic Vermeil perfectly when talking of Philadelphia's sudden rise. "We have good athletes on this team, likely better players than people give us credit for," he said. "But there's no secret about why we're sucessful. It's Vermeil. We go into games better prepared than any team in football. He goes over everything during the week." Krepfle, though, isn't above muttering silent oaths on the longer days of the boot camp. "I'm not crazy. Nobody would like to work that much all the time. Sure, there are days when you've been out there for what seems like three hours and you wonder to yourself, 'why are we going over this again.'" Krepfle has no quarrel with the results. "Even in his first year, Vermeil made us competitive. We lost so many games in the last few minutes. "On Sundays, all the work (now) seems worthwhile.'' Even during the sweaty practice routine, Krepfle is in love with his position. The best at his position run very fast for men so large. The Eagles' choice to fill that spot neither runs as fast as some nor is as large as others. "I think I'm big enough," he said. "I'm not as big as (Dave) Casper or (Russ) Francis, but I don't think my size (225 pounds) hurts me. There are guys faster than me, but I'm quick enough to get it done." And there's the appeal of his place in the formation. j• "I think it's the best position in football. At light end, you're never out of the play. If we're passing; you're out on a pattern and if we gota running play, then my block is impoftant. I get a kick out of blocking and seeing a guy get a good gain. Then it's the same thing as an offensive. . lineman." ;: He credits the pass-catching iijiprovement to quarterback Ron Jaworski. ;~ "Really, I think my getting better is attributed to Jaworski's improve^ ment," he said. "When he first gfct here, he used to zing every pass. It used to hurt to watch 'em. Now, be throws every pass just right" * And the hard-working tight end with character catches them.

By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff GALLUP - What was expected to J>e the Santa Fe Demons' toughest battle of the District iAAAA campaign turned out to be just another league mismatch here Friday night — courtesy of the Gallup Bengals. The Bengals did their best to make sure the third-ranked Demons didn't leave town empty-handed, contributing six turnovers and a sluggish offensive performance that resulted to a 52-6 rout and Santa Fe's fourth straight district win. "I thought Gallup was going to be the toughest of the year for us," a pleased Santa Fe coach David Church said, "We weren't rea'ly expecting this ... now we'll Just have to wait and see." The victory put the Demons in the driver's seat of the 1AAAA race at 4-0 Overall, Santa Fe now stands at 7-1 Gallup, expected to be a challenger in the league this season, fell to 2-2 in district play and 5-2-1 overall. Three fumbles and three pass interceptions did most of the damage to the Bengals Friday night, and the gifts were well received by the opportunistic Demons who converted three of the Gallup turnovers into touchdowns. Running back Mark Martinez led the Santa Fe scoring parade, hitting tne end zone on four occasions He Overturned a 6-0 Gallup lead with three touchdowns in a row in the first quarter on runs of 9,2 and 1, then punched his way in again from the 1 in the third quarter after Demon defenders caught Gallup punter Alex Baca with a bad snap. : . . )xThe Demons' passing game did its •bare of damage with Alfred Sena bringing down two touchdown aerials a 12-yarder from Terry Tiner and a 22yarder from Steve Baca.

SM buries Tigers 66-9
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff TAGS — Mark Duran looked a little bit like Earl Campbell Friday night. And Walter Payton. And Tony Dorse tt. The 160-pound senior running back shredded an outmanned Taos defense for 216 yards and five touchdowns as St. Michael's High School ripped Taos 66-9 in a District 2AAA game here at Anaya Field. "Obviously he's a hell of a running back," St. Mike's coach Richard Aiarid said. "You can key on him, but you can't stop him completely. And if the offensive line blocks, I don't see how anyone can stop him." There's not a running back in the world who can gallop for 216 yards without some help from the offensive linemen. And it was obvious that Duran was aided considerably by the big bulldozers up front. "That line of ours is great," Duran said with a wide grin. "I give all the credit to them every game.

Snorts
By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff Who says it's not a good idea to pass the football w h e n the temperature drops below freezing? Certainly not Santa Fe coach David Church. Church, whose third-ranked Demons disposed of Grants 56-0 Friday night, did not think it unusual that almost half his team's yardage came through the air. In fact, he considered the rout as a good opportunity for the Demons to polish their passing game. And that they did. Cold hands and a frozen f o o t b a l l in 29-degree temperatures didn't even phase Santa Fe's air attack. Quarterbacks Steve Baca and Terry Tiner connected on 10 of 13 attempts for 214 yards and three touchdowns, a season high for the Demons. "We felt like we had to get Tiner and Baca some more passing experience," Church said after the game. "It worked out real well for us. I think we passed the ball more (yards) than we ran it tonight. We were able to do some things that we've been wanting to try for a long time." Baca's arm did most of the damage to a surprised Grants secondary, hitting 8 of 10 attempts for 145 yards. Two of his aerials went for touchdowns and he completed two more for two-point PATs. Louis Briones caught Baca's f i r s t touchdown pass, a 19-yarder. The second went to Randy Bertram from 2 yards out. Bertram, who has been out of the Demon lineup much of the season with an injury, went on to lead the team in receiving with 95 yards, including a 33-yard touchdown pass from Tiner in the fourth quarter. The Santa Fe running game didn't do so bad either. Baca, Briones and Mark Martinez paced the Demons 230-yard effort, bringing the total offensive figure to 444 yards. Martinez added a p a i r of touchdowns to the Demon tally, scoring first on a 5-yard run, then breaking loose on the opening kickoff of the second a half and racing 86 yards into the end zone. Briones' only run of the night went 56 yards for a touchdown halfway

through the second quarter. Tiner added a 10-yard score scoring run to the rout and teammate Marco Lucero hit the end zone from 4 yards out late in the first half. The victory boosted Santa Fe's record to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in District 1AAAA competition. It also clinched the league championship for the D e m o n s as t h e i r only challengers, Farmington and Albuquerque High, lost Friday night. Farmington (3-2) suffered a 29-0 defeat at the hands of Gallup (3-2) and Albuquerque High (3-2) lost to Los Alamos (2-3) 41-16. The Demons will end their league campaign with two more games at Espanola Valley and Farmington. While the Demon offense was busy pounding out yardage Friday night, its defense was pulverizing the Pirates. Grants, which dropped to 2-7 overall and 2-3 in 1AAAA, only managed 103 yards total offense and threatened to score only once. The Pirates pushed their way across the Demon 20 yard line in the third quarter, but fumbled the ball away before they could close in on the goal line. In all, Santa Fe forced Grants to fumble the football four times, turning three of the turnovers into scores. The Demons return to action Saturday against winless Espanola Valley.

LA rises up, pounds 'Dogs into submission
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff LOS ALAMOS — Don't pound that last nail into the Los Alamos Hilltoppers' coffin. They're still alive. In fact, they're about as alive as a football team could be. After an embarrassing 21-7 loss to lowly Albuquerque West Mesa last Saturday, the Hilltoppers were pronounced dead by the coroner at Milne Stadium in Albuquerque. Everybody thought he was right — until last night. Because on a very frigid Friday evening in Los Alamos, the 'Toppers rose up from the dark cellar of District 1AAAA and pounded a tough Albuquerque High team into the frozen turf of Sullivan Field. The score was 41-16. That's right, 41-16. "I feel like celebrating," Los Alamos coach Brad Jenkins said as a wide grin spread across his face. "I thought this feeling was never gonna happen. It makes the parents feel good. It makes the players feel good. It makes me feel real good. In fact, it makes everybody feel good — except Albuquerque." The Hilltoppers went into the game with a record of 2-5 overall and 1-3 in district play. The Bulldogs, who were 5-2 and 3-1, were a three-touchdown favorite and were still hot on the trail of the district title. It didn't figure to be much of a contest. So what got into the 'Toppers? "I'm not sure," Jenkins said. "I didn't give them any pep talks this week. I just told them that we should go out and beat the hell out of somebody and salvage the season. "I think we realized last week that we can't play, that well and not score some points. I always knew we were capable of doing it. I think we could have beaten most of the teams in the district tonight." Jenkins wouldn't get too many arugments about that statement. Oh the 'Toppers had their shaky moments — like early in the third quarter when a 13-point halftime lead melted into a four-point lead — but for the most part, it was a devastating performance by a team that was written off as an also-ran The offense, led by the hardcharging running of Mike Whalen and some nifty option moves by quarterback David Croasdell rolled up 233 yards rushing in 39 attempts. Add 119 yards passing and 18 first down and you have the makings of an impressive offensive display. "We really played with authority out there offensively," Jenkins said "We moved the ball well on the ground and our receivers held onto theball.We wentfor the end zone like we meant business." For the first time this season. Jenkins chose to alternate Bill Sanders and Croasdell at quarterback. It paid off as the 'Toppers got good leadership from Sanders and 84 yards rushing on just four carries from Croasdell. - "We alternated them because I wanted to get Bill in on defense," Jenkins said. "If he plays all the time on offense, he's not fresh enough to do it. And we wanted to get David some experience this year and some confidence for next year. I think he did." It was a confidence-builder for the entire Hilltopper team. And it kept them alive — even if they were never dead.

Flame-throwing Ryan picked twice in Ist-round of draft
NEW YORK (AP) - In the fourth year of the baseball's reentry draft the owners apparently have decided to engage in some selective shopping. Rather than go after the highpriced free agents in a spiraling dollar war, some clubs seemed content to aim a little lower in hopes of turning up a bargain in the annual auction Friday. So flame-throwing Nolan Ryan, the brightest jewel in this year's class of 44 free agents, was chosen just twice in the first round of the draft, while Minnesota's Dave Goltz, a talented right-hander who's not quite in Ryan's class, went the maximum 13 times. The Texas Rangers and Houston Astros were the first teams to draft Ryan, setting up an intra-state bidding battle that should prove fascinating. They were subsequently joined by 10 other clubs — St. Louis, Milwaukee, Atlanta, the New York Yankees, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Diego, Montreal, Cleveland and San Francisco — in the Ryan sweepstakes. For some teams, Ryan appears to be a primary target. Atlanta owner Ted Turner, for example, picked only three players — Goltz, Ryan and pitcher Al Hrabosky and then quickly left the draft. Houston also picked only two other players besides Ryan and they were budget type selections — infielder Rennie Stennett and reliever Skip Lockwood. Other teams, like the Rangers, made Ryan one of a fistful of choices! Texas chose him first and then kept right on picking players, making selections for 22 of the draft's 28 rounds. Ryan has expressed a desire to return to his home state of Texas and that could mean a showdown between the Rangers and Houston. The Astros have been more aggressive lately when it comes to spending money, signing pitcher J.R. Richard and outfielder Jose Cruz to long term, expensive deals. Obviously, teams felt some others in the draft would come a little cheaper. Goltz was a favorite for the bargain hunters and became the first player ever to be closed out with the maximum 13 selections in the first round. He was picked by Atlanta, San Diego, the Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Kansas City, St. Louis, California, Cincinnati, Montreal, Boston, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee. The only other players chosen by the maximum 13 teams were pitcher Bruce Kison, who was closed out in the third round, pitcher John Curtis, who lasted until the fifth round, and infielder Rennie Stennett.

Local teams 'reaping benefits' from
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff What do Steve Baca. Terry Tiner, Mark Duran, Carlos Padilfa, Steve Quintana, Alfred Sena, Bill Layden and Tom Marquez have in common? If you're a football fan, you'll quickly realize that all of them are currently starring for the highly ranked teams at Santa Pe and St Michael's High Schools. But beyond that, all of them and numerous others got their first taste of organized football seven years ago in the Young American Football League (YAFL). They're the prized products of the YAFL's inaugural season in 1972. "I'd be willing to say that Santa Fe and St Mike's are reaping the benefits of the YAFL now," says Gilbert Valdez, first-year president of the YAFL. "Steve Baca and guys like Ferbie Montano (former Demon running back) were among the first YAFL players who made it big in high school. When you see these kids out there, you can see they're good football players. 1 t h i n k it (YAFL) has helped them." Before the YAFL was started, the football basics had to be taught in junior high school. When the YAFL came into existence, young players began to get the chance to dfelop" their skills and learn techniques before they reached the high school level. "1 think the league itself has helped kids in a number of ways." Valdez says. "It's taught them the basics and helped theni iearn to play with each other as they grow up through junio'r high and high school. They learn from each other as far as basic football goes. "You can see the development they make from the first game they play versus the last one. There's definitely remarkable changes in stance, football knowledge and teamwork." Santa Fe coach David Church thinks the YAFL can be very beneficial under the right circumstances. "If it is made an enjoyable experience where the kids want to play the next year, then it's a good thing," Church says. "It's got to be enjoyable. If they don't enjoy it, they can't become good players." Based on what he has seen this year, Valdez thinks the kids enjoyed their experiences. "We had a very successful senson overall." he says. "The kids enjoyed playing and I think that contributed to the success. We had very few injuries and we had very few kids who quit. I think the coaches, commissioners and officers who helped me were excellent." This year's YAFL championship games may spotlight t h e - f u t u r e Steve Bacas and Mark Dnrans.

The Hilltoppers have been successful with their running game and Jenkins plans to stick with a good thing. "We'll come out and try to establish the run and at least try to get something out of it," he said. "We've run the ball well since the Farmington game. We're gonna try to ground out some yards on them. But we're not big enough to do that against Gallup the whole game, so we

Las Vegas Robertson at Raton Robertson coach Mike Marr is quite pleased that his lOth-ranked Cardinals are still in the running for a District 2AAA playoff berth, but he'd rather be able to determine his own fate. The Cardinals' 27-27 tie with St. Michael's last Saturday kept them alive — barely. Robertson has to beat Raton tonight up in Raton, then sit back and hope West Las Vegas beats St. Michael's in their showdown in Las Vegas. That would give West Las Vegas the district title and the Cardinals the runnerup spot. "It's another must win for us,"

Marr said. "We've got to beat Raton in order to even have a chance. We've got to go get Raton and do what we have to do. Whatever else happens, we can't let that be our fault." Marr admits he has an uneasy feeling. "It's tough when you know you have to depend on someone else," he said. "When you have to do it yourself, you have nobody to blame but yourself if you*lose. St. Mike's can go out and determine its own fate. It's harder on us that way.!' In the only other game of local interest tonight, Taos (1-8, 0-4) travels to Socorro.

Santa Fe chases 1AAAA clincher
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff Imagine the Dallas Cowboys playing the University of New Mexico Lobos, the Pittsburgh Pirates taking on Santa Fe American Legion Post 101, the Seattle SuperSonics squaring off against the College of Santa Fe. .That's what Saturday's Santa FeEspanola Valley game shapes up to be. It's David and Goliath all over again. No matter how you look at it, there's something strange about the matchup. The third-ranked Demons, winners of all five district games and eight of nine overall, have outgained their opponents by a staggering 2,282 yards and outscored them by 282 points. The unranked Sundevils, winless in eight games, still haven't scored — and really haven't come close. You don't have to be Albert Einstein to figure out that the Demons are heavily favored. In fact, rumors were circulating that Demon coach David Church would put his thirdstring squad out on the field for the 1:30 p.m. kickoff at Hunter Field. Church says no. "We're gonna start our first team," Church said brusquely. "I talked to the players and they believe that it would be a slam to our opponents and a slam to us if we didn't put our best out there. We're gonna play it just like a game against Gallup, Farmington or Albuquerque. "It's hard to play a game like this. I don't want to say they're weak. It could snow and be six foot deep. We take everybody seriously, we hope. If we don't, we could wind up getting somebody hurt." By human nature, the Demon players might be inclined to go at less than full throttle. Church doesn't want to see that. And he doesn't honestly expect it. "A true champion goes out and plays its best all the time," he said. "I don't want our players to go out and fool around and not give 100 percent. We're gonna go 100 percent on offense and 100 percent on defense. We're gonna go up there and do the best we possibly can without fooling around. "This group doesn't know how to play easy. Our players know that ii they want to earn statewide respect, they have to play a good ballgame. There will probably be some scouts in the stands. I don't want them to think, 'If Santa Fe plays someone easy, they let up.' I want them to realize we whup everyone's butts." For the Sundevils, it's a classic case of "everything to gain and nothing to lose." Sundevil coach Tom Lopez, who handed in his letter of resignation effective at the end of the season, realizes that. "The kids know who they are going against," Lopez said. "They (the Demons) are third in the state. They've shown they're gonna be up there. They're always tough. "Espanola has always been predicted to lose. The kids know that. If we show well, it's gonna help the team and the community. If we can play decent football this weekend, it can only help." It won't oe easy. Santa Fe is peaking right now. After a painful 35-6 loss to Albuquerque Eldorado in the third week of the season, the Demons have reeled off six straight wins by a.'Combined margin of 295-26. And the Demons have a 20-game winning t ' streak in district games — the longest in the state. "This group never surprises me anymore," Church said. "They continue to do things well. For the past three weeks, we've done nothing but improve. And we have to continue to improve. That's the thing that's gonna carry us in the playoffs." But how will Church be able to tell if the Demons' improve against the Sundevils, a team that provides nearly all of its opponents with seasonhigh totals? "The big thing is if we see a great attitude wijh execution and timing," he said- "Then we'll be able to tell whether or not we're improving." Actually, the Demons do have * some incentive to improve. With last week's 56-0 romp over Grants, the Demons clinched a playoff spot and at least a share of the district crown. One more win gives them the title outright and assures them of the home field advantage in their firstround playoff game against the District 4 runnerup. "It's mathematically possible to finish in a tie with Gallup, Farmington and Albuquerque, but we're not looking at that," Church said. "We don't plan on losing any district games. I like to say we're district champs, but people say, 'No, you aren't yet.' We have definitely clinched a tie. If we beat Espanola, we're district champs." * Only six feet of snow could stop the Demons.

iDemon runners seek I seventh 1AAAA title
i «

„ With 14 straight victories against ;some of the strongest teams in the «state behind them, there doesn't ap^pear to be much that could stop the 'Santa Fe Demons in their bid for ^another District 1AAAA cross country championship. ^ Then why is coach John Alire "somewhat nervous going into Saturday's 1AAAA meet in Espanola? '„ "We have two kids out with strep -throat and it looks like we'll have to Ibring up two junior varsity people for ^district," said Alire, whose team will "chase its seventh consecutive league ;title Saturday in Espanola. "But .we'll be ready for them even if we Crun our JV. The difference might be -one point or two, but we can win it." I Even without fifth man Darrel •Fong and sixth man Tommy Gomez, I Alire still has reason to be optimistic. I Mainly because of the strength in the

top three Demon runners. No. 1 runner Peter Graham enters Saturday's meet carrying a string of 14 triumphs this year, and teammates Everette Gonzales, Larry Romero and Greg Hoover are never far behind. "Peter has already probably set a record for a runner in the state with 14 in a row, and he's under a lot of pressure," Alire said. "But Peter can take care of himself. "But while most people think it's an individual thing, we look at it as a team sport with all six men playing a role and playing it right," Alire said. "If the other kids don't come around, it could mean the district or state championship." Overall team health could be even more important next week when the Demon runners assault their fifth Class AAAA crown in six years. The

Demons breezed to the title last season with a perfect record of 18 straight wis. That means another victory Saturday would increase the Demons' overall streak to 33, which would be no small feat according to Alire. "For the past seven years our. district has been the toughest district in the state," Alire said. "Every year we usually place one-two-three ... or four." Although AI ire believes his team can win again Saturday despite its illnesses, he said the battle for second could be a toss-up. "Los Alamos looks real good and of course there's (Albuquerque) West Mesa and Grants," Alire said. "It's just a matter of their personnel wanting to run." That's something Alire won't have to worry about Saturday.

I College football round-up

LSU tests Alabama
I* K fti * By The Associated Press I Alabama, Uie nation's No. 1 college * football team, faces perhaps the stif-. lest test of its season Saturday night ! at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, »La., minus some important players. \ The Crimson Tide, unbeaten and ; untied in eight games, plays "Southeastern Conference opponent * Louisiana State, with a conference ti-tle and a possible Sugar Bowl ap1 pearance on the line. « Alabama and Georgia share the »SEC lead with 4-0 records. Georgia * can clinch a Sugar Bowl berth with * victories over Florida this week and v 16th-ranked Auburn next week, since Alabama appeared in the bowl more recently than Georgia. Alabama Coach Bear Bryant must make do in the contest against onceranked LSU without the services of backup quarterback Don Jacobs, Alabama's second-leading rusher. Also, the Tide probably will be without halfback Major Ogilvie, who is recovering from a strained ligament in his pelvic area. "The doctor and trainer will make the decision on Ogilvie playing Saturday," Bryant said. "Then. I may or may not use him." Bryant, who is trying to become the first college coach ever to win 100 games in one decade, also realizes there is a hidden opponent in the game — Tiger Stadium. "It's a great place to play," Bryant said. "If you haven't been there before, though, it can beat you. The crowd noise makes it difficult to hear the signals. I think we know what to expect." Alabama's top receiver, Keith Pugh, also is expected to miss the game with a shoulder separation, and freshman quarterback Michael Landrum has a bruised shoulder that will keep him sidelined. Other doubtful starters are defensive tackle Joe Beasley, offensive guard Bill Searcy, fullback Charley Williams and running back Joe Jones. "We're badly crippled," Bryant said. "We have had more injuries than we have ever had." A sellout crowd of 76,050 is expected at Tiger Stadium. The rest of Saturday's schedule finds five games in which ranked teams are matched, topped by a crucial Southwest Conference matchup of eighthranked Texas at No. 5 Houston. That game, and a game matching No. 19 South Carolina and seventh-ranked Florida State, will be at night. Fourth-ranked Southern Cal meets No. 15 Washington in Seattle in a daytime contest of Pacific 10 Conference contenders.

The Santa Fe vanity boys and girls teams earned berths to the state meet In Albuquerque next Saturday with easy wins, while the Demons junior varsity clubs also claimed impressive victories. "This is something of a first," seventh-year Santa Fe coach John A lire said following the sweep Saturday. "Four district champs ... you can see the power of the program. We have the toughest district in, state

and, since I've been coaching,- the teams that place 1-2-3 usually place l2-3 at state. I think this spe"!"- w«wy of our program and district "
The Demon -boys varsity, led by Peter Graham's iBth consecutive win this season, romped to their seventh consecutive district crown. It was their 15th win of the season and 34th in succession dating back to last season. Sanca Fe placed five runners in the top 10 en route to compiling 21 points. Far behind in second was Gallup with 95 points. Rounding out the field were Los Alamos with 96 points; Albuquerque West Mesa 102; Grants 109; Farmington 122; Espanola Valley '137;

"The girls have their work cut out for them (at state). They started a little late — hrSeptember — and have never been to a state meet before (this is the first season that Santa Fe has officially fielded a girls team). If they run at state like they ran today we may very well be next state champs." In junior varsity competition, the Santa Fe boys scored 23 points to finish on top.

INJURED SUNDEVIL — Espanola Valley coaches Bill Kovacevich, Tom Lopez and Morris Lopez (left to right) kneel over injured Sundevil player Ron Red Star late in

By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff ESPANOLA — Early in the ballgame, even the Espanola fans were cracking jokes about their team's fruitless efforts against Santa Fe High School. But there was nothing funny about the outcome of Saturday's District 1AAAA contest. The 80-0 rout was downright pathetic. Even Santa Fe coach David Church, whose Demons had just won their fourth straight league championship and a shot at the state playoffs, was not his usual self after the important win. "I really feel sorry for their (Espanola) kids," Church said as he prepared to board the team bus. "But what could we do? We played our second, third and fourth team people since the first quarter . . . and you just can't tell a group of young men not to score. - "When we took a big lead in the first quarter and knew we were going to win, we just wanted to get it over with," Church said. By halftime, so did the Sundevils. Team captains from both sides agreed at the half to let the clock run through the last two quarters, stoppThe New Mexican/Barbaraellen Koch ing only for timeouts and the fourth quarter of the Sundevils' 80-0 loss touchdowns. to Santa Fe Saturday. Red Star was taken to With the Demons holding a comthe hospital, where X-rays revealed a neck manding 53-0 lead at halftime. Church said his game plan was to let sprain. Red Star was treated and released.

Ten Demons score in title clincher
as many of his players score as he could. Had it not been for a couple of Sundevil errors, that plan would have worked to perfection. The Demons used 14 running backs in the mismatch and 10 scored touchdowns.Quarterback SteveBaca and running back Marco Lucero both scored twice, Baca on a 31-yard run and a 65 punt return, Lucero on a 9yard run in the first quarter then again in the fourth when he scooped up a Sundevil fumble and ran it in from the 5. Starting running backs Mark Martinez, Terry Tiner and Louis Briones contributed to the rout with touchdown runs of 25, 21 and 1 yards, respectively. The remaining Demon touchdowns came from reserve backs. Paul Ortiz punched his way in from the 1, Donald Trujillo from the 23 and Mark Lopez from the 1 for secondquarter touchdowns. Reserve quarterback Frank Lucero found the endzone on a 1-yard run in the third quarter and Martin Esquivel scored from the 20 in the fourth quarter after he picked up a teammate's fumble. Even the Demon reserves had no problems getting through the Espanola defense. Santa Fe's longest scoring drive of the afternoon amounted to only six plays and the Demons scored on all but two possessions. The Sundevils were not as fortunate when they got the football. They fumbled the ball nine times and the Demons recovered five. Even when they did keep a hold on the football, the Sundevils were usually stuck for a loss. In all, Espanola runners were sacked behind the line of scrimmage 13 times, with quarterback Abran Salazar hit for minus 43 yards. The total Espanola offensive effort came to minus 44 yards and their deepest penetration into Demon territory was stopped at the 45-yard line. Despite the lopsided score, the Demons only managed 185 yards in offense. That was mostly due to the fact that they usually got good field position on the kickoffs and punts. All but one of Santa Fe's drives started in Espanola territory. The Demons, who have now won or shared the District 1AAAA title since 1976, have one more game on their schedule before they host District 4AAAA runner-up Roswell High School in the first round of the state playoffs. Santa Fe closes out the season Friday in Farmington. Espanola Valley, winless and scoreless in nine games, wraps up its campaign Saturday in Albuquerque against Albuquerque High.

Injury, state marks mar Sundevil loss
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff ESPANOLA— Saturday afternoon's Santa FeEspanola Valley football game was cut short in the second half. But it still lasted too long for one Sundevil player — about four m inutes too long. With 4:10 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Demons' 80-0 rout, Santa Fe wingback John Gunter swept right and was met by defensive end Ron Red Star and linebacker Steve Madrid. All three players sprawled on the ground as the ball went loose, Martin Esquivel picked it up and rambled 20 yards for the Demons' final score. Gunter got up. Madrid got up. But Red Star lay nearly motionless on the hardened turf of Hunter Field. He didn't get up Sundevil coach Tom Lopez rushed out to aid Red Star. Soon he was joined by the officials and his assistant coaches. After 10 minutes, Red Star was still flat on his back. It was apparent that he hadn't simply had his bell rung. An ambulance arrived and Red Star was gingerly placed on a stretcher and taken to Espanola Hospital. X-rays revealed no broken bones and the injury was diagnosed as a severe sprain of the neck. Red Star was released from the hospital shortly after 6 p.m. — much to the relief of Demon coach David Church. "We were concerned because anytime there's an injury to the neck or the back, it can be serious," Church said. "We felt better when our manager said he was moving his hands and legs and had some feeling in his body. Those are good signs. "I felt he was in good hands. The.y took a lot of care with him and used good on-fie]d precautions." Church felt bad about the injury — particularly because it happened long after the game's outcome had been decided — and apologized to Tom Lopez after the game. "I'm sorry the kid got hurt," Church said."I feel bad about any kid getting hurt in a game. I know no one tried to do it. We had no intention to hurt anybody." Ironically, the officials and team captains had met at halftime and decided to keep the clock running in the second half, stopping it only for timeouts and touchdowns. They were concerned about preventing any injuries from occuring. "That was the whoie intent." one official said. "We shortened the half because we thought somebody might slack off and get hurt. It's a shame it happened. We were even thinking of stopping it completely, but the kids wanted to play." Red Star's injury was bad enough, but the Sundevils' afternoon was made even worse by their record-setting performances. For starters, the 80-0 loss was the Sundeviis' ninth consecutive scoreless game, breaking the modern state season record of eight set by Truth or Consequences in 1970. T or C went scoreless for the first eight games, then scored a touchdown in its seasonending 80-8 loss. No team in New Mexico's modern prep history (since 1950) has gone scoreless for an entire season. ' The Sundevils are nearing the national record of 15 consecutive scoreless games set by Big Bay De Noc High School in Michigan. Big Bay went scoreless in all eight games in 1978 and its first seven games of the 1979 season. Espanola Valley also tied the modern state record for consecutive scoreless games over any period of time. T or C failed to score in its last game of the 1969 season, then went eight games in 1970 without scoring. The Sundevils are also nearing T or C's record of 457 straight points given up. The Sundevils gave up seven points after scoring for the last time in'the 1978 season finale against Aibuquerque High and have given up 437 straight points this season for a grand total of 444. The 437 points-against total also broke the Espanola Valley season record of 392, set in the 1970 season, when the Sundevils went 0-9-1. The 80-point loss was the largest margin of defeat in school history, tying the margin set earlier in the season against Los Alamos. The previous record was set in 1970 in the Sundevils' 81-6 defeat at the hands of — ironically enough — Santa Fe.

Demonette spikers claim league championship
LOS ALAMOS — Santa Fe High School overcame a sluggish start and a Los Alamos home court advantage to claim its second straight District 1AAAA championship at Griffith Gym here Saturday. The Demonettes, perhaps a bit rusty following a nine-day layoff, needed three sets before disposing of the Hilltoppers 16-14,11-15, 5-3. It was the second Santa Fe conquest over LA in three matches this season. Santa Fe, 15-1 overall and 9-0 in district play, and Los Alamos advance to the state tournament at Albuquerque Del Norte next Friday and Saturday. >The Hilltoppers are matched against the District 3AAAA champion Friday at 10 a.m. The Demonettes will play the 3AAAA runner-ui> at 1:30 p. m. "I thougnt the girls played real well," Santa Fe coach Lenny Roybal said. "We started out slow.

Also named to the squad were Laurie Russell, .Lisa Cash and Valerie Andreatta from Los Alamos; Espanola Valley's Michelle Madrid; West Mesa's Liz Griego and Theresa Trujillo; Robin Hawthorne from Albuquerque High; Farmington's Leslie Lloyd and Carrie Martin; and Grants' Lisa Torres. Santa Fe will be shooting for its second traight state championship when it journeys to the Duke City next weekend, a feat Roybal is confident of accomplishing. "We've got to have a good week of practice and work on our defensive coverage," Roybal pointed out. "Then we've got to have that confidence that we know we're there and we're the team to beat. "I think we can win, but it's going to take a lot of work and intensity." Royba! indicated that past Demonette practices have been interrupted • by nagging problems in Toby Roybal Gym. He said that the team has had to practice around the baskets on the court and an unsafe., floor. "There's nails sticking out of the floor and the baskets are in the way," Roybal explained. "We've got to get those things fixed. We'd like to run a practice where the girls can spike a ball and not have to worry about the baskets, or take a dive and not have to worry about nails." "If they help us, than there will be a total involvement and committment to the program."

By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff FARMINGTON - The Santa Fe Demons have known from the beginning of the season that they had a potent offensive weapon in the arm of quarterback Steve Baca. They just never had the opportunity to really use it. The third-ranked Demons got that chance here Friday night when Baca capitalized on a weak Farmington secondary and passed for five touchdowns and a two-point conversion to lead his team to a 35-0 rout. Overall, Baca punished the Scorpions by hitting 18 of 31 attempts. His 58 percent passing effort accounted for 283 of the Demons' 468 yards total offense. "I guess I was throwing pretty well tonight," the modest senior said as he and his teammates celebrated the climax of a 10-1 regular season. "I was off on a couple of routes, but overall I was glad we were able to throw alot." Church saia he had not planned on passing the football so much against the Scorpions but was not about to turn down opportunities to score. He credited a change in the Farmington defense for'his decision to go to the air. "They (Farmington) have been playing an Okie (defense) all season and I guess they changed their whole theory," Church said. "We'll throw the ball anytime its open, and it was open tonight." Demon end Randy Bertram found himself in the clear throughout the game and Baca was usually quick to deliver. Bertram brought down three of Baca's touchdown passes from 47, 20 and 35 yards out. He finished the game with seven receptions and 153 yards. Louis Briones and Alfred Sena snagged the other two Demon touchdown passes. Briones put Santa Fe on the Scoreboard first with a 17yard reception and Sena caught a 15yarder in the second quarter. Terry Tiner added three additional points to the Santa Fe tally with a 27yard field goal in the first quarter. The Demon defense also played its part in handing the Scorpions their fifth defeat in 11 outings, holding Farmington to 175 yards total offense and recording its sixth shutout of the season. Santa Fe defenders James Duran, Reyes Aguilar and Bill Laden each had eight unassisted tackles and contributed to the Demons' 12 sacks. Farmlngton's only serious scoring threat came early in the second quarter when It made it all the way to the Santa Fe 3-yard line only to be

Clayton stops McCurdy in Class A A playoffs
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff ESPANOLA — McCurdy Mission coach Bob Wood preferred to speak positively after his team's 30-14 loss to third-ranked Clayton Friday in the quarterfinals of the Class AA state playoffs. And he had every right to. Even though the Bobcats were battered and outmuscled by a much bigger Clayton team, even though they were playing a much more experienced team that had won the state title in 1977 and placed second in 1978, they never gave up. That made Wood hapline, then drove 97 yards for a touchdown. "I'm very proud that we just don't quit. In our first game of the year against Moriarty, we scored 14 points in the last quarter and almost won. We tried to do the same thing today. We did everything we could." It was apparent early in the game that McCurdy's best effort probably wouldn't be enough. After stopping the Bobcats cold on the opening series of the game, Clayton drove 60 yards in 12 plays for a touchdown and went up 6-0. The next time the Yellowjackets got the ball, they chewed nearly six minutes off the clock and charged 75 yards for their second score, a 4-yard run by Larry Fry. On their third possession, they added a 25-yard field goal by Joey Sandoval to go up 17-0. The halftime statistics told a very grim story. The Yellowjackets held the edge in every category: in first downs, 13-2; in rushing yardage, 12823; in passing yardage, 54-35; in total yardage, 182-58; and in plays, 32-22. "We didn't play well at all in the first half," Wood said. "We didn't make the right adjustments to what they were doing. We just couldn't block. "We made some adjustments at halftime, got together and looked a little better. We had some success passing in the second half because we did a better job of blocking." The Bobcats tried to run the bail, but they met with little success. So they alternated senior Greg Tyra and junior Tim Burgett at quarterback and went to the air. The results were good. Burgett completed four of six passes for 71 yards and Tyra chipped in with two completions in five attempts for 51 yards. Both quarterbacks were instrumental in the touchdown drives, which culminated in plunges of 3 and 1 yards by running back Kevin Wood. But it wasn't enough. Clayton had built up a sizable lead and was content to roll up chunks of yardage on the ground. All the Yellowjackets did was hand off to Larry Fry, their powerful running back. Fry scored three touchdowns and ran the ball 25 times for 123 yards. He was clearly the dominant force in the game. "We had scouted Clayton a couple of times and we knew about him," Wood said. "But there wasn't much we could do to stop him. He's a horse. He's a man playing among boys." The Yellowjackets are now 8-3 and their state title train is right on track. They will tske on the winner of today's Eunice-Hatch game next weekend in the semifinals of the state tournament. McCurdy, which was ranked eighth in Class AA going into the game, finished the season with a 5-5 record and the District 1AA title. Nobody at McCurdy is complaining about that.

"Frankly, we were physically outjnuscled," Wood said. "They beat us up physically out there. They really had us outmanned in the line. We had to play a kid, Adam Martinez, at offensive guard for the first time. He only weighs 110 pounds and there's no way he could handle their 180-pound guys. "That's a good team we played. They're real tough. They're just big, strong, well-conditioned and welicoached. We were pleased just to be in the game. This kind of stuff is new to our kids. We were real jittery and it showed. But the kids gave it everything they had. They never quit.". The Bobcats could have easily given up at almost any point in the game, especially late in the fourth quarter, when Clayton drove down near the Bobcats' goal line and was threatening to add to its 30-6 lead. But McCurdy stopped the Yellowjackets on a fourth down and goal from the 3-yard-

Free agent Tony Perez signs 3-year contract with Boston
BOSTON (AP) — Veteran slugger Tony Perez got his wish to move to the American League Friday, agreeing to terms for a guaranteed three-year contract with the Boston Red Sox. "I'm very happy, t think they can uae me," Perez said In a telephone Interview from his home In Puerto Rico. Perez, whose 1975 World Series homer still haunts Boston, said be was not surprised when he was picked by tbe Red Sox in the free agent re-entry draft two weeks ago. "When they lost Bob Watson, I knew they needed a righthanded hitting first baseman," he said. "I've watched the Red Sox a lot on television and hoped to be able to Join them. "I know I'm 37, but I feel I have a lot of baseball left, at least three more years. I feel the same today" as I felt five years ago."" Perez discounted a mediocre 1979 season while with the Montreal Expos. He was unhappy at frequent rest periods in which Rusty Staub played first for Montreal. "I like to play every day as much as possible, and I think I'll get 600 at bats and do a lot better with the Red Sox," he said. "Tony Perez can still hit. You can bet on that" Perez, a former Cincinnati Reds' star, played three years for Montreal. Now he's viewed as a replacement for" Watson, a right-handed slugger who signed as a free agent with the New York Yankees. Perez played 12 seasons with the Reds and helped Cincinnati to a seven-game victory over Boston in the 1975 World Series. In the final game, he sparked a comeback by blasting Bill Lee's sixth inning blooper pitch far into the night. Perez was not immediately available for comment on the new Boston pact, nor was his Cincinnati lawyer, Reuven Katz. Red Sox General Manager Haywood Sullivan made the announcement and then promptly left for New York to meet with free agent right-handed relief pitcher Skip Lockwood and his agent, Dick Moss. Lockwood, a native of Norwood, Mass., pitched for the New York Mets In recent seasons but arm trouble idled him the second half of the season.

ALBUQUERQUE - Santa Fe High School's quest for a second consecutive state volleyball championship was cut short Friday, when an upstart Alamogordo stunned the Demonettes 1511, 15-5 in the opening round of the Class AAAA tournament at Albuquerque Del Norte. Santa Fe, the District 1AAAA champion, suffered only its second setback in 17 matches and finished the campaign at 15-2. District 3AAAA runner-up Alamogordo advanced its season mark to 19-2. In other opening round games Friday, Roswell Goddard knocked off Albuquerque Valley 15-10, 14-16, 15-10, Las Cruces Mayfield bounced Los Alamos 13-15, 15-8, 15-13, and Albuquerque Eldorado defeated Carlsbad 15-6,15-6. A consistent Alamogordo offensive attack had the Demonetles playing catch-up throughout. The Tigers jumped out to a quick lead in the opening game and then quashed a late Santa Fe rally and then eased to the match clincher. "Alamogordo showed consistency all around," Santa Fe assistant coach Nancy Mike said. "In the first game we started hitting, but it was too late. We missed more serves than we've missed all season." Comprising the Demonette lineup were Leslie Roybal. Renee M artinez, Theresa Gomez, Deanna Duran, Nettie Romero and LeAnn Loutensock. Today's semifinal action pits Alamogordo against Goddard and Mayfield versus Eldorado in 1:30 p.m. matches. The tourney championship is scheduled for 8:30 tonight. The third-place matchup is set for 5 p.m.

Questa welcomes new coach, five lettermen
One of a series By WALTER K. LOPEZ The New Mexican Staff "Skywalker," "Bigfoot," "Bad News" and "Steady" are a few of the Individuals who will attempt to ex- • tend Questa High School's fortunes on the hardcourt this season. The characters are not the creation of the school's drama class, but members of the basketball squad who have taken to nicknames this aeason in an attempt to make the sport "a more fun thing," according to first year coach Jerry Villareal. "It breaks the monotony of pactice and makes basketball fun likes it's i to be," Villareal, who takes at Questa after an eight-year stint at" Mesa Vista, said. "They '(nicknames) describe the boy. Like "Skywalker" (Lawence Vigil), he can really jump. " The preoccupation with nicknames has also drawn the Wildcats closer together and made them a tighter unit," according Villareal, one of the main reasons the veteran coach accepted the Questa job. "I wasn't going to coach this year at Mesa Vista," Villareal related. "I just think the enthusiasm wasn't there (in Ojo C alien te) anymore. A lot of the community and the school weren't receptive to what I wanted to do. "I wanted to continue the fine program they (Questa) had started. They thought I was tne person to improve or keep up the fine work that has been done." Viilareal replaces Jack McCloud, who had been the Wildcats- coach since the 1976-77 campaign. In eight years at Mesa Vista Villareal compiled an impressive 166-55 record and took the Trojans to the state tournament on four occasions while winning five regular season District 3AA titles. With only five re tuning lettennen off of 17-8 ballclub, Villareal will have his work cut out for him at the Questa helm this season.

Oneof aserlei By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff With no starters and only two lettermen returning from lust year's basketball team, the chance of Tuos High School repeating as the District 2AAA champ appears almost Impossible.

So far this season, the Coyotes' running attack has been built around tailback Gary Mills, who hit 1,061 yards last weekend against Roswell Goddard. But Erhman reported this week that Mills suffered a bruised thigh muscle in the Goddard game and may not be up to full strength tonight. "He'll play," Erhman said. "But we're not sure whether he'll be 100 percenter not." Roswell's only other serious offensive weapon appears to be the passing arm of quarterback Randy Knoche, who has hit 47 of 112 aerials this season for 301 yards. His favorite receiver is James Lilly, who has caught 20 passes for 301 yards. The Coyotes' most serious threat, APLaserphoin however, is in its awesome front line.

Demons get new playoff test tonight
By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff If, as the old saying goes, "The third time around is the charm," then Santa Fe coach David Church and his Demon football team are in big trouble. Their third straight trip to the state playoffs ended in another first-round loss last season. But that hasn't stopped the Demons from coming back for more, and the fourth time around, Church says his team is ready to break that string of losses. . The third-ranked Santa Fe squad will get its chance tonight at Magers •Field when it takes on the Roswell High School Coyotes in a Class AAAA quarter-final battle. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. "It means a lot for us to win this one," Church said. "We need to show people we're better than just good enough to get here. We owe it to our league and want to represent the district well in the playoffs." Just how well the District" 1 AAAA champion Demons fare in the playoffs will depend upon what the Coyotes have to offer tonight. Roswell earned its berth in postseaon play by finishing its regular season as the District 4AAAA runnerup. And the Coyotes have a string of their own that they would like to see broken. Tonight will mark the first time Roswell has made the state playoffs since 1955, one of two years the Coyotes won the state title. They also won state in 1953. "We really have to win it," Roswell coach Paul Erhman said of tonight's battle with the Demons. "It's a do-ordie situation for us. I'm just hoping our kids are not too tight.'' The winner of tonight's DemonsCoyotes battle will advance to the state semifinals against the survivor of the Albuquerque HighlandAlbuquerque Cibola contest, also scheduled tonight. On paper, the Demons appear to hold enough edge to loosen up the Coyotes. In establishing itself as the state's highest scoring and stingiest team, Santa Fe has piled up 458 points to opponents' 61. The Coyotes scored 178 points this season and gave up 141. Comparative offensive figures arc even more lopsided. In its 10-1 season, Santa Fe compiled 4,445 yards, 3,092 rushing and 1,353 passing. Roswell, which finished its regular season wih a 7-4 record, managed to gain 2,920 yards and 2,196 of that was on the ground. Those figures have led Church to believe the key to a win against the Coyotes will be in stopping their running game. "We've seen six films of them this season and the whole staff saw them

PONTIAC, Mich. ( A P ) - Memo to CBS-TV: If you're looking for a . prime-time show about a struggling • young professional football team '. with a patient, understanding coach, Monte Clark and the Detroit Lions would like to volunteer. ; It would be a real grabber.

' Clark said game balls were given to quarterback Jeff Komlo and defensive end Al "Bubba" Baker. Komlo. a 6-foot-2, 205-pounder out of Delaware, hit on 16 of 30 pass attempts for 244 yards and one touchdown, despite throwing three interceptions.

Defensive end Elvin Bethea said, "The biggest thing that happened was them h a v i n g 12 men on the field. Our defense sputtered some the last three quarters, but we proved again, .though 1 hate to keep saying it, we're a pressure team." The loss meant the Cowboys must win their last three games to claim the NFC East title. "If we play this good the rest of the way. we'll do all right." said Landry. "We played very well offensively, and we had a chance to win at the last." Pastorini said of the Oiler ettort, "I won't j u m p for joy because we beat Dallas.

Hagerman Bobcats edge Texico 9-7 for Class A title
HAGERMAN (AP ) — Halfback Tony Becerra scored a touchdown and teammate Oscar Medrano added a 34-yard field goal late Thursday to spark Hagerman to a 9-7 New Mexico prep football triumph over Texico for the Class A championship. This is the third consecutive conference crown for Hagerman and its second straight championship victory over Texico. Hagerman trounced Texico last year35-19. , Becerra's touchdown capped a 60-yard drive in the first quarter. Hagerman had to settle for Medrano's field goal in the second quarter when its offense bogged down. Texico's lone score came in the fourth quarter as Bret Crooks snagged a 15-yard pass from Keith Hadley. However, Texico threatened to score twice in the. final minutes of action. "We stopped them on two very key situations in the fourth quarter," said Hagerman coach Jim Newton.

Knights ready for home debut tonight with Texas Lutheran
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff A f u n n y thing happened to the College of Santa Fe basketball team after its fifth-place finish in the Marymount invitational last Saturday — it placed three players on the All-Tournament team. Pikeville (Ky.^College, which finished second, couldn't match that. Marymount College, which won the tournament championship, couldn't even come close. That made coach Jim Johnston a happy man. Happy for the three players — Mike Williams. Dwayne Rogers and Harold Goodson — and happy about the respect CSF earned in the tournament, even though it never made it to the championship game. "1 think it's a pretty good indication of how we did and the impression we left onthe coaches, who voted for the team," Johnston said. "Even the championship team had only one player named and Pikeviile had only two. I don't think there's any doubt in our minds that we were the best team in the tournament. "It's really neat for us.

"We stopped them on the four with fourth and two and they attempted a 31-yard field goal in the last minute of play that we blocked," he said. Greg Barbe blocked the attempt and returned the ball to Texico's 45-yard line and Hagerman ran out the clock.
"It was a super defensive effort," said Newton, who is in his second year at the helm of the Hagerman football team. "It's a lot happier Thanksgiving now."

He said he knew from the beginning that last year's romp over Texico in the championship game would not be duplicated.

Demons

RHS
By DAN WILLIAMS The New Mexican Staff The Santa Fe Demons provided the punch in Friday night's 41-3 state quarterfinal victory over Roswell High School, but it was Mother Nature who gave the Coyotes the worst sting of all. "We're not used to the cold, you know that," a visibly upset Roswell coach Paul Erhman said after the game. "We've never played in this kind of cold. We never even had to play in the rain." The temperature at Magers Field dipped into the teens Friday night, a factor all observers could see was taking its toll on the big southern New Mexico team. And it cost the Coyotes their first shot at the state title since 1955. The story on the other side of the field was altogether different. The Demons, chasing theirmnth straight victory and their first playoff win in, four tries, were seemingly unaffected by the cold. Coach David Church was perhaps the hottest of all. He wore only a windbreaker the entire game. Despite the icy temperatures, Santa Fe did most of its damage through the air. Quarterback Steve Baca hit 6 of 12 attempts for 95 yards and connected with end Randy Bertram twice for touchdowns. Bertram's first touchdown came on a 9-yard pass and gave Santa Fe a lead they would never relinquish. Baca hit him again from 46 yards out in the Demons' 26-point second-quarter. "Our passing game was excellent tonight," Church said after congratulating his team at midfield. "Baca did a fine job. And w« moved, the bail well on the ground too.

Coach Erhman said Mills did not play in the second half because of a bruise to his hip suffered in an earlier ballgame. "But that didn't make any difference," Erhman said; "We were out of the ballgame at half time."

Horsemen host Tucumcari
By WALTER K. LOPEZ The New Mexican Staff St. Michael's High School fans are not likely to forget the early seventies. During the first four years of the decade, Horsemen teams appeared in the playoffs four times, winning the state title on one occasion. -'; But it's been five long ,years since the Horsemen received a post-sea'son berth — much too long as far as Horsemen coach Richard Alarid is concerned. '• ' . .-'' The long wait comes to an end this afternoon when the Horsemen, who earned a post-season playoff berth with a thrilling 14-7 victory over West Las Vegas in the District 2AAA title game two weeks ago, host the No. 1-ranked Tucumcari Rattlers in a quarterfinal matchup at Brother Abdon Field beginning at 2. "It's a big challenge," A'.arid, making his first trip to the playoffs in four years as Horsemen coach, said. "It's a point where St. Mike's football has reached statewide respectability. I anticipate a very large crowd and I'll be very disappointed if its a small crowd." The Horsemen's last trip to the playoffs came in 1974, when the Micks got an early ticket home following a loss to Aztec in the opening round. In 1970, the Micks lasted through the quarterfinals before getting knocked out by Lovington in the semis and, in 1971, they failed to gain a postseason berth. • The 1972 and 1973 campaigns are the seasons Horsemen fans and alumni like to remember. ; In 1972, the Horsemen were devastating, marching through opponents with ease en route to the state title. They outlasted Lovington that year in the finale. The 1973 club nearly produced a repeat. Again the Micks stormed into the state title game, this time losing to rugged Albuquerque St. Pius in the championship. Going into today's clash with the powerful Rattlers, Alarid is confident and, after scouting the No. 1 Rattlers a few times through the course of the season, very much looking forward to the meeting. "What's nice about playing Tucumcari is that they run a lot of the same things we do," Alarid noted. "They run out of the 1, run a sprint-out opGame today at 2 p.m., Brother Abdon Field tion and throw the ball off the double set. They also run one of the two defenses we use — the 5-2. "We might show them a couple of different plays. They're-going to have to stop (Mark) Duran and our passing attack with Andy Ramos. It'll be the best they faced all year." With Ramos and Duran forming the nucleus, the Horsemen offense rolled up 293 points in 10 games for a 29.3 average. It also holds a 14.2 scoring margin over opponents. By comparison, Tucumcari, behind the leadership of senior quarterback Stan David, has tallied 279 points for a 25.3 average and has outscored its foes by a 16.8 average. It is interesting to note that the clubs have faced two common opponents — Las Vegas Robertson and Albuquerque Academy — with contrasting results. St. Mike's rolled past the Chargers in Albuquerque 25-12 early in the season and then battled Robertson to a 27-27 deadlock at Brother Abdon Field. The Rattlers outlasted the Cardinals 21-6 in Tucumcari in an early season matchup and, last weekend, eliminated Academy from the playoffs with a 39-8.thumping. The comparative statistics seemingly points to a high-scoring match today, weather permitting, butTucumcari coach Dan Ward was mum on the subject "Lord, I don't have any idea," Ward responded when asked which route the Scoreboard will take today. "I'd like for it to be a low scoring game." "I think it will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 21-14," Alarid prognosticated. "The big key will be for us to stop them on the ground. We just have to be able to control the line of scrimmage." Tucumcari is in its first post-season playoff since the 1966 campaign, when the Rattlers bowed to Gadsden in the first round. The Rattlers' only other playoff appearance in the 60s came in 1962, when they again were a first round victim, this time losing to Raton. Tucumcari's favorite season, and one it would like to duplicate this year, is 1959. That year, the: Rattlers rolled to the Class A (then the top classin state) crown, ripping Aztec 13-7 in the finale. - 1 With David, a 6-3, 215-pounder, calling the: signals, the remainder of the Rattlers' backfieldis relatively small.

Whatever the secret, Ward's Rattlers pulled off 10 regular season victories, including im^: pressive shutouts of Portales (31-0) and peren nial power Artesia (29-0).

CSF Knights win battle of scoring machines
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff It's a good thing the Scoreboard at the College of Santa Fe gym wasn't working.Friday right. Because if it were operative, it would have shortcircuited. CSF and Texas Lutheran College were so hot they would have made it look like the point counter on a pinball machine. Both teams scored nearly enough to win a National Basketball Association game — and they did it in 40 minutes, not 48. And when the wild scoring affair finally reached its climax, the Knights had notched their third win in four decisions with a 92-91 heartstopper over the Bulldogs from Seguin, Texas. It was a terrifying experience for the scorekeepers, but it was even more terrifying for CSF coach Jim Johnston. He looked like he had just gone through a triple-overtime battle for the national championship. "This was a coach's nightmare,", Johnston said, wiping sweat from his forehead. "I guess you have to go through a few like it. I'm real happy to win a game like this. That's a good we played. They're big, strong and physical. They're gonna beat a lot of people this year." The Bulldogs (1-1) almost beat J o h n s t o n ' s s q u a d , w h i c h is desperately thin in depth but is rich as a Hershey candy bar in talent. Texas Lutheran led through most of the nip-and-tuck first half and was out in front 43-42 at halftime. The Bulldogs had little trouble with CSF's halfcourt zone trap and they worked their way under the basket for more than a few easy layups. "We didn't do a real good job of adjusting to what they were doing offensively," Johnston said. "Our defense is funny. It's almost impossible to play it right without a great effort. We had some problems with it in the first half." The Knights had more severe problems with their defense early in the second half. Texas Lutheran, led by the strong inside play of center Ron Glover and power forward Danny Randall, reeled off nine 'straight points after the Knights had tied the game at 48. Less than six minutes into the second half, CSF found itself trailing 57-48. Midway through the half, the Knighis were down 71-61 — and losing momentum. "But momentum is a funny thing," Johnston said. "It's hard to tell when things are swinging your way. It looked like things were Against us, but I think they got a little careless and got fat on their lead. They stopped executing." And the Knights started executing. And stealing the ball. And scoring. And stealing it again. And scoring. In the space of seven minutes, the Knights outscored their Texas buddies 25-6 and took a 86-77 lead with just two minutes left. But as quickly as the knights had gotten the lead, they lost it The Bulldogs turned into, animals and scratched and clawed to within seven points, then five, then three and finally one with just a few ticks left on the cock.

Lack of experience may hurt Bobcats
One of a series By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff Warren Finch is going to feel mighty alone when the McCurdy Mission basketball team takes the floor this season. The 6-0 senior is the only returning starter off last year's Bobcat team. Not only that, he's the only returning player. McCurdy coach Robert Moore is still shaking his head in disbelief over the loss of eight players from a team that won the District 2AA title and finished 15-13. And those eight— Eric Martinez, Cliff Roller, John Lucero, Mike Humphrey, Doug Livermore, Mark Ledoux, Marty Martinez and Greg Tyra — were instrumental in the successful 1978-79 campaign. Tyra would have been the second returnee, but he decided to take a break this winter. That leaves Finch as the only familiar face. "To say we're rebuilding is an understatement," Moore said. "We're starting from -scratch. Everybody playing this year, except for Warren, is coming off our'B'team, "Eric and Cliff both averaged in double figures. But it won't just be the loss of those two — it will be a combination of all seven. They all played well together and were a good group to work with. I'm just gonna miss that kind of attitude. I'm looking for it this year, but I'm just not sure if we're gonna have it." Moore isn't afraid of the task he's faced with. He relishes the opportunity to turn a group of inexperience players into a cohesive unit. "I don't feel uneasy," he said. "I feel it's a challenge. You've got to take what you've got and work with it. "The lack of experience is gonna hurt. It will probably show in a lack of confidence early in the season and a lack of poise in any close games we might be in. The kids really haven't played a lot. But we fee! the nucleus of kids we have coming in here are good athletes. They're good quality kids and they want to put a good team together. We're . excited about the season." Moore estimates that half of his team will be composed of players from McCurdy's District 1AA champion football team, which completed its season last Friday with a loss in the state playoffs. Most of those players are just joining the basketball team now, so the Bobcats are a little behind schedule. Bobcats' schedule

Defense main ingredient in SF victory
By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff ALBUQUERQUE—At 6-0 and 179 pounds, Bill Layden is no hulk. But he turned out to be a real giant Friday night. WhiteSteve Baca and Marco Lucero were grabbing the attention with their offensive wizardry, Layden quietly brought the state football championship to Santa Fe High School. It was early in the third quarter and Albuquerque Eldorado was slashing its way through the Demon defense. The Eagles were leading 15-12 and were all the way down to the Demons' 2-yard line. Another touchdown and they would be in the driver's seat. And it looked like nothing would stop them. After Eldorado was pushed back to line on an illegal motion penalty, quarterback Jim Everett rolled out to the left and—without any hesitation—fired over the middle. But Layden was there. He picked off the ball at the 2. And the throng of about 4,000 Demon fans breathed a collective sigh of relief. "I dropped back and saw the end cut across the middle," Layden said in between hugs from tearful Santa Fe fans. "I just froze a bit, then I stepped in front of him. He (Everett) threw it right to me. "1 knew I had to get it to prevent them from getting another TD. I knew if I could do that, we could win. All ;/ear long, I've been waiting for an interception." And he couldn't have picked a better time for it. "If it hadn't been for that, they probably would have scored and it would have been .tough for us," said Steve Baca, who ran for 78 yards on 14 carries. "But after that, we knew we could doit." year was worth it. We came out number one. It feels wonderful. I'll never forget it." L a y d e n said the Demons remembered their early season loss to the Eagles and the frustration that accompanied it. "That day, we svent into the game as the number one team, and we were cocky," Layden said. "We weren't ready. They taught us a lesson." And while the revenge factor was present this time around, Layden isn't quite sure that was totally responsible for Santa Fe's drastic turnaround. . "It was kind of like revenge," Layden said. "We were happy they beat Clovis to get there. And we really wanted to beat them. But I think we were looking for the title more than revenge. The thing we wanted was the state title." "It was kind of like revenge." Layden said. "We were happy they beat Clovis to get there. And we really wanted to beat them. But I think we were looking for the title more than revenge. The thing we wanted was the state title." The Demons got it—but it wasn't easy. "We were kind of down at times, but we just came out and kept sticking them," Baca said. "It seemed like the momentum was just standing there. No one had it for a long period of time. I think the pass to (Alfred) Sena on third and 10 (early in the fourth quarter) changed the momentum and gave it to us." The Demons had their backs to the wall more than once. But they came up with the big play—which didn't surprise Coach David Church.

"It didn't tell me anything I didn't already know," Church said. "We had our backs against the wall last week against a great Highland club. "This game could have gone either way, but our players weren't going to let that happen. We played with 'he idea that we wantedit.We believed in ourselves and we worked for it. And the Demons did.

Harrison, NM Lobos ' determined to beat Ags
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico, rocked by a probe that left most of its basketball team ineligible, will suit up four remaining team members, two football players and perhaps a trainer for Saturday night's game against New Mexico State. But Coach Charlie Harrison, an assistant who took over the head job last week when Norm Ellenberger was suspended, says his makeshift squad is out to beat the university's arch-rival. "We're going down to win, not just play a game," Harrison said. "We'll try to stay as close as we can through the game and hope we have a chance to come on and win it at the end." Athletic Director John Bridgers said Thursday night that five players, including three starters, were ineligible and that another had been suspended temporarily while officials try to determine whether he is eligible to play. A sixth player, Craig Gilbert, was declared ineligible last week. That leaves Harrison with Jim Williams, Kenny Page, Everette Jefferson and Michael Johnson as the only players available who started the season with the Lobos. He picked up two football players to augment the roster. 5-foot-ll freshman Keith Magee and 6-3 Derwin Williams. "And we perhaps have another kid, who has been an athletic trainer," Harrison said. "I can't recall his name, but he's about 6-4 and has been around for two years. He knows what's going on. "He came in and said that if we needed a body he'd be glad to fill in for awhile." Bridgers said a check of records revealed that Larry Belin, a 6-8 center who was the team's top returning scorer, and four others — Paul Roby, Andre Logan, Larry Hubbard and Larry Tarrance — had been given credit for a course they were never enrolled in. Without the credits, they are ineligible. The tallest player remaining on the roster is Jim Williams, a cocaptain along with Logan, who is 6-7. Harrison said Jefferson has played forward in the past. Page and Johnson are guards. "We've contacted several people who will walk on later," Harrison said. "I'd rather go with what we've got — people who have been associated with us for a while. We'll try to fill some holes Monday so we'll have enough people to practice." Harrison said the situation may be improving for the four players who were not dropped from the team. "I think they're okay. They have to be hurting inside because their friends are not with them," Harrison said. "They have to be confused. We lived for quite a while with uncertainty. At least now they know what is going on. "You just have to go with what you've got. You're faced with problems a lot of times in life — and this is one of those times." Harrison said the Aggies, 2-0, have a good basketball team, as do most of UNM's opponents for the rest of the season. "But I think we can compete with the four kids we have left and Magee_, who is a very good basketball player who just has to learn what he's doing." he said. "We can compete if we play hard 3"d play with intelligence." Harrison said he will make some adjustments in New Me'xico's runand-gun style, but won't go to-a real slowdown against the Aggies. "You have to keep some offensive pressure on them," he said. "You can't just walk it up the floor." Harrison, who has spent eight years as a college assistant and as director of player personnel for the Buffalo Braves of the National Basketball Association, said he didn't feel any extra pressure. "That would be a cop out," he said. "I was hired to do a job. Nobody told me these circumstances would come up but I'm going to continue to do'a job." The Lobos take an 0-2 re'cord into today's game.

By RICK WEBER The New Mexican Staff .'If the best offense is a good defense, as the old adage goes, then both Espanola Valley and Taos are theoretically headed for respectable football seasons. Theoretically is the k£y word. ' No matter how spectacularly the defense performs, the offense has to put some points on the scoreboard. Aid neither the Sundevils nor the TJigers showed any signs of offensive wizardry in their season-opening games last weekend.

Based on what I saw last week, I think we can hold them down to enough points that we can beat them. We want to get on the winning track as soon as possible." Espanola Valley would like to do the same thing. The Sundevils, who won just two of 10 games last year, were somewhat demoralized when they failed to get the winning score after recovering a bad snap on the Academy 24-yard line with 34 seconds left in the game. But the disappointment lasted only briefly. "We've gotten over it and we've had some good practices this week," Lopez said. "The kids saw the game films. They know their mistakes and

what they have to do this weekend. There's a lot of enthusiasm — more than before." Albuquerque Eldorado at Los Alamos The Hilltoppers' schedule continues to show no mercy. Last week, the 'Toppers faced Clovis, the defending state AAAA champs, and lost 28-3. And there's no relief in sight this week. The opponent tonight at 7:30 at Hunter Field will be Albuquerque Eldorado, last year's state AAAA runner-up. Eldorado was whipped 20-6 by Albuquerque Highland last week, and the word around the state is that Eldorado is not nearly the team it used to be. "That's what I've heard, but we're not approaching the game from that standpoint," Los Alamos coach Brad

"From what we've seen, they like to run the football, but they sure will throw it," Jenkins said. "Looking at them on film, they're not as big as last year, but they're very strong.

Micks test Academy next
By WALTER K.LOPEZ The New Mexican Staff After having had a chance to analyze the game film of St. Michael's High School's seasonopening loss to Albuquerque St. Pius last Saturday, Horsemen coach Richard Alarid admits that there is plenty of room for improvement on his squad. The Micks turned in a sterling defensive effort, holding St. Pius at bay for three quarters before a pair of fourth-period touchdowns lifted the Sartans to a 13-0 victory at the Albuquerque Sports Stadium. But it was a different story on offense. St. Mike's and premier running back Mark Duran, the state's leading scorer last season, were nearly shutdown completely by the Sartan defense. The Micks managed only 95 yard in total offense, 45 of those on the ground. Duran, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season, was held to 38 on 18 carries. "I think it's important that we need to improve on our offensive line play," Alarid noted as St. Mike's prepares for its second contest of the season against Albuquerque Academy Saturday. "It's a young, but good line. "Our passing attack (3-16-50) didn't do as well as it could have, but it's going to get better, and our defensive pass coverage broke down (in fourth quarter)." Alarid credited the St. Pius defense for halting the usually-explosive Duran. "He looked a little sluggish," the fourth-year mentor related. "There was a couple of times that all he needed was one more step to break open a big play." The Chargers will be looking to

The Lobos have taken on the Red Raiders 24 times in the history of the grid rivalry between the two schools that Tech has all but owned in compiling a gaudy 20-2-2 advantage. Hopes are running high in the Lobo camp this year, however. The Wolfpack has knocked off two straight opponents, marking the first time since 1966 UNM has opened the year with back-to-back victories. If the Lobos can overcome the curse of the Techsans and emerge with a victory Saturday night, they also will become the first UNM club since 1962 to win its first three games of the season. But Lobo coach Bill Mondt warns his team is going to have to play better than it did in either of the first two contests to beat Tech, which lost its season-opener to No. 1 ranked Southern California by a 21-7 count last week. And Mondt said his Lobos are going to have to stop the Raiders' rugged fullback J a m e s Hadnot if they are going to stop Tech. "We can't afford to let him run loose like he did last year," said Mondt. "Our linebackers are going to have to play well." Hadnot, a converted tight end who was making his first appearance as a running back, merely rolled over the Lobos for a Tech school record 268 yards on 26 carries to to lead Tech to a 36-23 victory. UNM quarterback Brad Wright kept the Wolfpack in the game by hitting on 28 of 49 passes for a Lobo school mark of 452 yards. Wright, a junior who halls from Midland, Texas, is back at the controls for New Mexico again this year, and he and Hadnot both are playing well so the fans in Lubbock may get to see the same kind of fireworks the two treated the partisan New Mexico crowd to last year in Albuquerque. Hadnot had 94 yards on 24 carries against the top-ranked Trojans, while Wright has thrown for 263 yards and three touchdowns and run for 74 yards and three scores in two games. "Hadnot is such a fine runner you hate not to give him the ball," said Tech Coach Rex Dockery in leaving little to the imagination on what he has in mind for the Lobos. And, likewise, he indicated he expects New Mexico will be counting heavily on Wright.

Tech's Dockery: 'Wright a m o r e experienced player
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Brad Wright admits it will be "nice to go home." But that's about all the versatile New Mexico quarterback is saying about Saturday night's matchup in Lubbock with Texas Tech. Undoubtedly, Wright has some special feelings about the contest since he's from nearby Midland, Texas, and he will have family, friends and fans from around West Texas in the stands. But the 6-foot-2, 202-pound junior also must be keenly aware that Tech's Red Raiders will be fired-up to stop him after he Dicked them apart with his pinpoint passing a year ago. And, apparently he doesn't want to say anything that would give Tech's coaches more ammunition to use to pump up their players for him. "It will be nice to go home," said Wright this week. "That's my hometown, almost. It's about 100 miles from Midland. "But I'd rather not comment on anything else. I just want to play the game. I'd kinda like to sit back and wait until after the game to say anything," he added. If Wright has the type of game he had a year ago, though, he won't have to say much because his stats will do the talking for him. Although New Mexico lost 36-23, Wright was spectacular as he hit on 28 of 49 passes for a school record 452 yards. " W r i g h t is a m u c h m o r e experienced player," said secondyear Texas Tech coach Rex Dockery. "He scares us to death." It could have worked out that Wright would have been playing for the Red'Raiders Saturday night since he says Texas Tech "recruited me a little bit." But he said he decided to go to New Mexico because that's where he got the "best offer."
