History plagues Cowboys in Japan By ERIC TALMADGE Associated Press Writer TOKYO (AP) — The last time the Dallas Cowboys came to Tokyo for a preseason game, they lost — but ended up going on to win the Super Bowl. Now the Cowboys, back in Tokyo to play the Atlanta Falcons, are hoping history will repeat itself. Or at least the part about going on to the Super Bowl. The American Bowl is the 10th to be played in the Tokyo Dome since the Los Angeles Rams beat the San Francisco 49ers 16-13 in overtime in 1989. The Cowboys lost their first appearance here, three years later, to the Houston Oilers. “No, I didn’t get to go home with the big, beautiful trophy," owner Jerry Jones said in a pre-game news conference. “And yes, I did pout all the way back to Texas.” But Jones added that he got ample compensation later on — the loss was the first preseason game of a season that ended with Dallas winning Super Bowl XXVII. “We always felt that it started here in Tokyo, and it started with our preseason game with the Houston Oilers,” he said. “We hope this year’s trip provides us with the same sendoff for another successful season.” CAMPO Dave Campo, who is making his debut as an NFL head coach this season, said he believes the team, which had practices at Warriors return NB select team wins 2, loses 2 at Triple Grown World Series From staff reports The New Braunfels Warriors, a local 14-and-under select baseball team, recently competed in the Triple Crown World Series in Steamboat Springs, Col., where they came away with two victories in four games.

The Warriors defeated the Denver Yard Black and the Fort Worth Angels, but lost to the Utah Batzz, the eventual winner of the tournament, and the Michigan Wolves, this past year’s champion. Prior to the start of the tournament, three Warriors competed in the base running competition. Bradley Bevil, James Green and Bryan Juarez finished with the second, fourth and eighth best times in a field of more than IOO competitors. In the Warriors’ first game against Denver, they prevailed 10-9. The Warriors scored the go-ahead run in the last inning on a double by Tyler Smith, scoring Bevil. A key hit in the Warriors' first win came from Tanner Henk, who doubled with the bases loaded, knocking in three runs. Green and Smith each had three hits and scored twice. Cory' Struble added two hits. Against Utah in game two, the Warriors struck first with a lead-off triple by Bevil, who later scored.

The Batzz racked up seven runs in the inning after Smiths departure. The Warriors staged a comeback with a five-run third inning but fell short in the end, 11-7. Juarez led the Warriors with two hits and a run scored. The Warriors played their third game against defending series champion, Michigan. Bevil led off the game with home run over the left field fence on the first pitch. In the second inning, Derek Williams drove a double off the center field fence. Juarez then drove him home on a single up the middle. The Warriors were held to six hits in the game and lost 7-2. Green had two hits including a double to lead the Warriors at the plate.

Defending champion Florida State is No. 2. With nine starters back on offense, a solid defense anchored by linebacker Carlos Polk anc} a topnotch kicking game, beating the Huskers will take a Herculean effort. “Going 12-1 was a great season, but we didn’t finish it off the way we’d like to,” Polk said. “In the preseason, it’s very flattering to be No. I or No. 2, but we’re still after postseason No. I.” The schedule will help.
