DENNE H FREEMAN AP Sports Writer IRVING AP Dallas Cowboys arent quite ready for prime time The season opener on the road against Pittsburgh is two weeks away Its a good thing The Cowboys showed a lot of promising things in Friday nights 3431 preseason win over the St Louis Rams but running the foot ball and pass defense werent two of them Emmitt Smith hampered last year by injuries that knocked his yards per carry down to three plus saw his first action of the exhibition sea son He gained only 24 yards on 12 carries for a twoyardspercarry average The pass defense allowed the quarterbacking trio of Tony Banks Will Furrer and Jamie Martin to pass for 366 yards and four touch downs All four touchdowns came over rookie free agent cornerback Kevin Mathis of Texas Mathis returned the favor by intercepting a pass and returning it for a touchdown Another downer for Dallas was losing fourth round draft pick Macey Brooks a 6foot5 receiver from James Madison Brooks went dov 1 with a fractured right forearm and will be out for an undetermined amount of time Coach Barry Switzer is concerned about the Cowboys because of the mental errors by the team busting coverages and jumping snap counts Were having too many he said At least we have two weeks to work on it We may have to give the regulars some more play ing time against the Oilers next The Cowboys final tuneup is Friday night in Texas Stadium against the Tennessee Oilers of vagabond owner Bud Adams All 1 know is we cant go to Pittsburgh and play like this in two weeks or well get embar Switzer said The Dallas running game went nowhere fast If you cant run in this league you cant Switzer said Its as simple as Smith said I was a little rusty 1 missed some Dallas was 24th in offense last year and bet ter production is needed until a defense without NFL tackle Leon Lett and with a lot of young line backers can get settled The offense is going to have to carry this fullback Daryl Johnston said The defense carried the team last year Now the offense has to set Smith said the game looked too nuicli like the way Dallas tried to run the bull last year It was a Smith said We didnt play well At times it looked like 1996 ill over again We snapped the ball on the wroth count and made a lot of other mistakes I Quarterback Troy Aikman wasnt pleased Turn to Cowboys Page 48 An Alaskan adventure Chick Mueller shows off the

Junior City Golf Championship The sky was clear the sun was shining a cool breeze was blowing 1 suppose many of the golfers could have done with out the pool breeze but us spectators really enjoyed it We were also treated to some excellent golf especially in the boys 1518 age group Michael Schaefter and Hagan Cohle ended their rounds tied at 75 forcing a suddendeath playoff for the city title Tom Erickson Cohle had a shot to in ilu title outright on his final hole but missed a long put and remained tivd u ith Schaeffer who had finished play several minutes earlier But this wasnt exactly your typi cal allornothing winnertakesall type of matchup Schaeffer and Cohle are good friends and seemed to enjoy the chance to meet headto head for the title Both players teed off from hole No 10 but Schaeffer reached the green right away Cohle made the green in two strokes but bogeyed the hole Meanwhile Schaetlei scored a birdie on the par4 281yard hole for the tournament victory Many sports fans
