By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Nacogdoches Coach Steve McCarty knew there was a special chemistry In the paas-catch abilities of quarterback Chuck Winfree and receiver Kenneth Smith.
But it took them until last weekend to explode.
Smith, a junior with 4.5 speed, caught six passes for 310 yards including four touchdowns of IO, 65,45 and 55 yards in the 35-23 victory over Marshall to establish a state receiving yardage record.
Winfree did the throwing, hitting IO of 21 passes for 360 yards for the top passing yardage effort in the state this season.
The pair, along with running backs Othalee Green of Refugio and Waco Robinson’s Erie Tucker, head the list of The Associated Press Schoolboy Honor RoU.
New Braunfels Unicorns’ running back David DeLemos also made the AP list for the second time this season thanks to his effort Friday against the Georgetown Eagles.
DeLemos ran for 190 yards on 16 carries, and scored touchdowns on runs of 78, eight and 61 yards as the Unicorns drubbed the Eagles, 494.
The 145-pound junior has roUed up 603 yards in four games and ha* surpassed 160 yards in three of them. He also made the schoolboy honor roll after the Unicorns’ 30-20 win over Seguin two weeks ago.
Of his passing and receiving combination, McCarty said, ’’We’ve had visions of them doing something Uke this. They had some pretty good

Junior varsity games last year. But that’s Thursday night and this is the first time they’ve done it on the varsity.”
Smith, 5-9, 157, has a knack for adjusting his routes, McCarty said. “He’U turn a quick out into a touchdown,” McCarty said.
McCarty described Winfree as a hard worker. ”He’s not a high-roUer or showboat, he just works real hard for what he gets,” McCarty said.
Green and Tucker also had noticeable statistics last week but their production came on the ground.
Green, a junior rushed 318 yards on 15 carries and scored on three consecutive carries to break open a 7-7 deadlock and lead the defending Class 3A state champs to a 42-12 victory over previously unbeaten Rockport-Fulton of Class 4A.
Green’s TD runs of 17, 28 and 59 yards on consecutive carries ballooned Refugio’s lead to 28-7 and Green scored again on the first play of the third quarter on a 92-yard sprint.
Green has 501 yards on 21 carries in his last two games for a 23.5 yards per carry average.
Tucker was the workhorse in Waco Robinson’s 42-0 shutout of China Springs. He gained 328 yards on 29 carries and had touchdown runs of 84, 87 and one yard.
Senior defensive end David Bryan is a major reason that Corpus Christi Ray is unscored on in four games this season, the only Class 5A team in the state with such a distinction.
In last week's 20-0 victory ovdr Corpus Christi Moody, Bryan contributed to 12 tackles and had five quarterback sacks, heading a defensive unit that held previously unbeaten Moody to 77 total yards.
Memphis tailback Chris Sims scored touchdowns on runs of 17 and three yards, a 77-yard punt return and a 90-yard interception return in a 50-14 rout of Kress.
Sims rushed 106 yards on 15 carries and added nine tackles and another interception as a free safety.
In other outstanding performances:
-Pampa’s Anthony Scott had 210 yards on 22 cares and touchdown runs of 71 and IO yards in his first career start in a 26-9 victory over Perryton.
--Robstown pounded Falfurrias 39-8 led by James Brown’s touchdown runs of 12,42,44 and four yards.
-Celeste's Duece Hemphill rushed 215 yards on 16 carries and scored on runs of one, 76,54 and 75 yards.
National League roundup
Rain delays Dodger party
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
A rare rain shower in Southern California kept Los Angeles from securing its West Division title Wednesday night.
The Dodgers blew a 3-0 lead and a 4-3 edge in the 10th inning and then saw the rains force a halt to their game in San Diego with the score tied 4-4 in the top of the 14th inning. The teams will play a doubleheader today.
Leading by 4H games, the Dodgers need only one victory in five remaining games or an Atlanta loss to claim the title.
After Atlanta split with Houston, winning 3-1 and falling 5-1, the Dodgers’ magic number dropped to one. But the elements stopped the Dodgers from getting that one Wednesday night.
Elsewhere, it was New York 4, Pittsburgh 2; Montreal 4, St. Louis 0, and Cincinnati 5, San Francisco 4.
The Dodgers built a 3-0 lead through four innings. Then San Diego pecked away to tie it and loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the ninth inning. But Dodgers starter Jerry Reuss got pinch-hitter Joe Lansford to pop out, and Bobby Brown and Alan Wiggins to ground into force plays to end the threat. Derrel Thomas homered in the top of the 10th, but

Mats 4, Pirates 2
Two youngsters the Mets plan to build around, Darryl Strawberry and Ron Darling, were heroes against Pittsburgh. Strawberry slammed his 26th homer and Darling earned his first major league win, going all the way with a seven-hitter.
“Our kids gave us a great effort,” said Mets Manager Frannk Howard. “I don’t know what to say about the guy (Strawberry) that hasn’t already been said. He has all the qualifications. The sky’s the limit for him. If he misses, we’d all better find a new line of work.”
Pittsburgh’s Dale Berra set a major league record when he reached first base on catcher’s interference for the seventh time this season.
Reds 5, Giants 4
Mario Soto won his 17th game with a league-leading 18th complete game. He survived a four-run Giants’ eighth inning.

same story,” a frustrated Soto said. “This is getting tomes little bit.”
“You’ve got a five-run lead with two innings to go and him pitching, you figure you shouldn’t have to sweat out the last out,” Reds Manager Russ Nixon said. ’’But that’s the way it happens sometimes.”

Joe Niekro fired a five-hitter in the second game at Houston.
’’My whole career I’ve gone in situations like that, and I like it,” said a dejected Forster. “I feel like I could cry. I never give in to a hitter, and today I did. Today is one of the poorest efforts of my career.”Schmidt-Owens clash pushes Phils to title
CHICAGO (AP) - Mike Schmidt refused to call it symbolic, but be had to have a big hand in Philadelphia’s clinching of the National League East title Wednesday, despite the fact Bo Dias went 54or-5 and Joe Morgan 4-for-4.
Schmidt contributed his major-league leading 40th homer and a triple to the Phillies’ 19-hit attack in a 13-6 triumph over the Chicago Cubs.
But all of that was secondary as far as Schmidt was concerned. With champagne dripping down his forehead, the two-time National League Most Valuable Player had a bigger role in what turned the Phillies around.
"Yes, FII take some credit,” said Schmidt, who had a bitter exchange with interim manager Paul Owens early in the month before the Phillies started their title drive.
Amidst a lot of grumbling within the ranks, Schmidt at the time said the team didn’t know who the manager was and that “the lineup was decided by committee (Owens and the coaches).”
Owens, who had stepped in for Pat Corrales in July, told Schmidt not to worry about the managing and to concentrate on playing to his potential.
“We went 19-3 after that,” said Schmidt, “I think that’s what turned us around. If we had gone 3-19, I could have hung up my spikes. They would have said I was the reason the team had failed and that I had caused the dissension.
“But a lot of the guys agreed and told me so,” said Schmidt. “It’s going to have to change, we decided, and it did. I’m a Christian and believe that maybe it was something that was supposed to happen.
“I stood behind what I said, we had a set lineup and got to where we had to get,” said Schmidt. “I’ve never seen a team turn on the switch and keep it on until now, as this team
“There's not a guy in this clubhouse that didn’t do something. Every guy is drinking champagne and deserves it”
Schmidt said he wasn’t sure if the drive would carry over to the playoffs and he wouldn’t compare this team to the 1980 team which won it all, including the World Series.
“In '80, we had to go to Montreal to win two of three. We were world champs. This team still has a lot to prove, but we have the potential to be as good as the ’80 team.”
What was symbolic of the clincher was that Schmidt led off the fourth inning with a homer to break a 3-3 tie and put the Phillies ahead to stay with his 12th game-winning run batted in.
The homer was his 39th in Wrigley Field and his 59th against the Cubs, but the crux of the victory that brought the Phillies their fifth divisional title in eight years was the hitting of Diaz and Morgan.
Diax homered in his first two trips, giving him 15 for the season, and finished with three straight singles. Morgan, the 40-year-old marvel who was 0-for-35 at one time but has been going strong during September, had a double, three singles and walked twice.
“I’m just trying to win and very happy with the job I did,” said Diaz, who was enjoying the greatest game of his career.
“I had two home runs and two doubles in a game last year, but we lost,” said Diaz. “I don’t go for average or home runs, I just want to win. We stayed together and we won.”
Morgan was asked if he’d like to be 23 again.
“No,” said Morgan, who played on two championship teams at Cincinnati. “I’ve seen a lot of guys who are 23 who never make it. I know when I’m healthy I can do the job.”
