Billies set the pace early jumping out to a 114 lead and never looked A minimum of fouls and a very active defense stampeded the Cougars into early shots and missed By the end of the first Fredericksburg was leading Canyon bounced back in the second stanza when Jeff Stuman illustrated an underhanded jump shot for the first score of the quarter and moved the Cougars within eight points

Valley Rangerette girls to a 5753 win Friday night over the Cole Cougars in Rangerette Three other Rangerettes were also in double figures to help boost the team to a win in its opening district Smithson Valley used a stifling press to force numerous Cole tur novers and enough easy baskets to take a 166 firstquarter But the Cougars found the key to a press of their own and closed the score to 1714 midway through the second Outside shooting from Dawn Davis and the free throws of Darlene Garrison helped the Rangerettes pull back and SV led at The girls werent very Rangerette coach Phyllis

to hit from the Bonugli That pulled them out of the tight zone and then we got it Coles spectacular Melanie threw up a prayer at the and when it went Cole was down by But that plus some hustling play

something They found SV scored four points to retake the but Jahn kept the Cougars Two straight Cappel layins one following a steal brought the home crowd to its But there was still time for one last Cole Kathleen Murphy missed four straight free and the Cougars converted them both into scoring On the second Garrison drew her fifth foul fighting Jahn for a loose ball and had to sit down with 54 seconds Jahn hit one of the two free throws to close the score to But Murphy redeemed After being fouled on another she hit the two free throws to make it Cole came right back down the floor and scored but Murphy got an easy bucket with six seconds left to ice the One more Cappel free throw closed out the scoring on a 5753 Rangerette Bonugli thinks the close contest will help the Rangerettes down the Since it was such a close it may build some she Cappel led the Rangerettes with 23 points followed by Garrison Davis Murphy 10 and Lynda Nicholson Jahn led the Cougars with 22 points Teri

37 passes for 281 He was sacked six A crowd of attended the which was blacked out There were tickets meaning there were only 691 no The Coliseum capacity for Raider games is about Scott Haring Oiler solution new not new coaches it wants to hang Ed Following the most popular coach the Houston Oilers ever had and theyve had so many is difficult but following him with a 18 season lets just say Biles has spent a lot of time looking over his shoulder for mobs with buckets of tar and sacks of When Earl Campbell averages a puny yards per carry and finishes ninth in the when the offense and the defense both rank 26th out of 26 somethings And since you cant fire the the reasoning its time to fire the right In the Oilers it is definitely time to fire the Not every one of them just a Jot of Well start with the offensive a group of outquicked and generally out played men who would have trouble even making some other NFL Injuries didnt either 1 pick Mike Munchak broke an ankle the first game back from the and the Oilers were forced by injuries to start four different players in one spot over the Campbell would not blame the line for his I won with these guys he Ill lose with them But the point these arent the guys the Oilers won with in 1979 and Gone is Carl Mauck Bob Young retired and Leon Gray traded to New Orleans but not playing for Gone is Tim whos still with the Oilers but has been con verted to tight The present line cant even open holes for a great back like Earl Camp And Archie Manning and Gifford Nielsen have spent most of the season meeting the defensive linemen of the NFL up close and Then theres the Its not entirely populated with bad players Robert Brazile and Gregg Bingham and Mike Reinfeldt are all excellent football There just arent enpugh of and the weak spots are easily It was hoped that young defensive backs Willie Tullis and Bill Kay would develop and take away jobs from less talented starters that hasnt happened The line is in serious the only anchor being Elvin who was supposed to retire at the end of the season unless the Oiler management can talk him out of But theres The Oiler management and Biles have concluded that the way to build a successful team is through the Theyre And for the first time since the Oilers have draft choices in all of the first five including the 2 pick The Oilers need practically so it will be tough to imagine them not having a good draft unless they cave in to pressure and draft a hotshot quarterback like John Elway or Tony Eason or Dan Marino in the first Despite the glamor and the hoopla surrounding such a bigname the last thing the Oilers need is a Manning and Nielsen both played well this and Oliver Luck of West Virginia is still hanging waiting for his Other than the Oilers could use just about I hope they take offensive and defensive Another One good draft wont do The Oilers are so far theyll be lucky to get to next even with a spec tacular Houston is at least two drafts away from The tarandfeather bunch had better remember The draft is a few months The playoffs are here and I said at the beginning of the season remember our football section in September that the Cowboys would win it and do it over San Im not as rocksolid sure now as I was but those two are still not bad San Diego has to get past Pittsburgh and Dallas is in a bit of a Perhaps the Raiders would be a better choice in the Well
