(AP) The United States and Mexico will meet in second- round Davis Cup tennis matches here Jan. 31 and Feb. 1-2 it was announced Monday. The winner will advance against South Africa, current holder of the Davis Cup. Mex- ico beat Canada in a first- round tie played at Quebec Citv. Division with 51 points, two more than second-place Los Angeles Kings. The Kings have two games in hand. A key factor in Montreal's excellent play of recent weeks has been right winger Guy Lafleur, who got off to a slow start and did not get his first goal of the season until Montreal's eighth game. During Montreal's current streak, Lafleur has scored 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points and occupies fourth place in the scoring race with 25 goals and 29 assists for 54 points. Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins leads in scoring with 70 points on 35 goals and 35 assists for a one-point lead over teammate Bobby Orr who has 23 goals and 46 assists. Gilbert Perreault of Buffalo Sabres is third with 56 points on 24 goals and 32 assits and Bobby Clarke of Philadelphia Flyers follows Lafleur with 12 goals and 42 assists. Dave Schultz of the Flyers appears well on the way to breaking his own record of 348 penalty minutes which he amassed last season.' In 36 games this year, Schultz has been assessed 226 penalty minutes. Rogatien Vachon and Gary Edwards of the Kings still lead the goaltending race with a combined average of 1.85. Bernie Parent leads the league with six shutouts Joe Thomas steps down BALTIMORE (AP) Joe Thomas confirmed today that he has decided to step aside as coach of Baltimore Colts. He said he has launched a search for a replacement. Thomas, who is also ex- ecutive vice president and general manager of the National Football League club, said that "a number of factors went into the decision." "But the main thing is that no man can do a good job of handling both full-time jobs head coach and general manager. One or the other has to suffer." Robert Irsay, the Colts' owner, made Thomas coach after firing Howard Schnellenberge following the third game of the season. The Colts were 2-9 under Thomas and finished with a 2- 12 mark, tying New York Giants for the worst record in the NFL. "I gave it a great deal of thought after the season, and I believe if you keep both jobs you have to neglect one or the Thomas said. "I will continue to be general manager." ...91 SATISFIED, UAO, THEWS A LOT TO 3E Grudge match coming?

Connors, one of two non- Aussies who made it to the quarter finals, whipped Kim Warwick 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. Newcombe, seeded No. 2 behind Connors, struggled through five sets and 56 games before wrestling a semi-final berth from Geoff Masters.
