straight week to defeat Arizona State and remain undefeated Page B3 B SUNDAY OCTOBER 2 2005 THE NEW MEXICAN LEE YOBBI The New Mexican I Heres to golfs i newest j Everyman Jason Gore told a story to I America on Friday and in the process reached out to a and every class of people that inhabit it He told the poor he could identify with i not knowing if his debit card would cover his grocery bill He told the middle class that yes he knew what it was like to grind out a living Then he told i the rich that he would be join ing their ranks soon enough i Put stamps on the country club invitations Gore started innocently 1 enough playing the game of 1 golf for a living Gore said he j struggled and he worried those handinhand circum stances He said things might look good now but there was a time when the picture wasnt r so pretty i Gore scraped his way along j as a professional in the late j 1990s after turning pro in 1997 j The Van Nuys native was not California dreaming then He playing minitours and try ing to graduate from Pepper dine which he did in 2000 UNM FOOTBALL Then we all saw how Gore went from Nationwide Tour dandy to PGA Tour feelgood in 2005 Gore won the 84 Lumber Classic in Farm ington and he was even a leader at the Open tied Tor second in third round until a finalround 84 brought him back to earth j Gore cashed a I check after winning the 84 Lumber and was well on i his way to not having to worry I about paying the clerk at the front of the nearest WalMart He already had three wins on the Nationwide which got him to the PGA Tour It was there that fans fell in love with him A 6footl 230 rpound Joe Schmo he wears his buttoned up to a neck is struggling to be recog lihized as a neck He doesnt like the tall tanned sandy liaired silver spooners on Tour He looks like John Dalys younger brother Daly drinks Diet Coke eats chicken and smokes cigarettes like the worlds on fire but he still has two majors to his credit And he won those when admittedly was an alcoholic j Daly has fans because hes a j regular guy from Arkansas i Gore fits that mold too His current goal is to make j the Big Tour on a more perma nent basis If Gore finishes in the Top 20 on the Nationwide money list he earns a PGA Tour card for 2006 He is cur j rently second with in i earnings in 12 events The 31yearold Gore a i Walker Cup player at Pepper i dine was a disappointment in his previous trips to the PGA I Tour He made in 2001 I and in 03 failing to keep his card both years His total career earnings i on the Nationwide Tour of coming into this sea s son represented about half of what a single PGA Tour vic f tory check is worth and it took him eight years to bank it But finally Gore has turned a comer Hes taken a dream and made it as real as a gimme putt And he took all of us along jfor the ride Turnoverhappy Lobos fall to TCU By Tommy Trujillo The New Mexican FORT WORTH Texas Unfor tunately for The University of New Mexico the football game ended just like it started Gone was the elation of a brilliant comeback Gone was the renewed hope for a win When Drew Coleman stepped in front of another Kole McKamey pass the fourth interception he threw in the game it was over just as thor oughly as it began The Texas Chris tian Horned Frogs scored 28 unan swered points to start and 21 unan swered points to finish on Saturday and maintained their stranglehold on the Mountain West Conference as the league newcomer defeated the Lobos 4928 in front of a crowd of at Amon G Carter Stadium Just like the last three ballgames this team came to TCU head coach Gary Patterson said We werent behind in this ballgame but they came back to tie it up We had to come back make some plays and we The Lobos who suffered their sec ond straight loss couldnt stop mak ing mistakes in the first quarter and couldnt help forcing dieir mistakes in the second half For the game UNM lost six turnovers In between UNM put together an impressive comeback answering four TCU scores with four of its own the last coming on a 41yard pass from McKamey to tailback DonTreil Moore Please see LOBOS Page B3 HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL Kings of the jungle Backup QB Harmon leads Capital charge as Jaguars win first city title since 1997 Photos by Karl New Mexican Santa Fe High School defensive back Ivan Ortega right breaks up a pass in the end zone intended for Capital wide reciever Adrian Vigil near the end of the first half Saturday at Ivan Head Stadium Vigil would beat Ortega to score on the next play above to give the Jaguars a 196 lead at halftime By James Barren The New Mexican This was for all the times Levi Harmon was at the bottom of a pile behind the line of scrim mage the victim of another sack It was for all the times he had to run around for his athletic life eluding wouldbe tacklers while perpetually try ing to make something out of nothing It was for every time he had to dragged his battered body to the locker room after another disappointing Capi tal loss For once Ujie 6foot 175pound senior got the last laugh and it was a hearty one Filling in for injured starter Marc Moulton at quarterback Harmon com pleted two crucial fourthdown passes the last being a 20 yard touchdown to Adrian Vigil then returned a Derek Nunez pass 69 yards for another score with less than a minute left to cap Capi tals 3325 win over Santa Fe High at Ivan Head Stadium The win wrapped up the Jaguars first city football championship since 1997 While there was plenty of reason to celebrate Harmon muted his because of Moultons injury Moulton was hit in the chest by a Santa Fe High defender when his pass to Justin Koeppe was intercepted by line backer Daniel Diaz and returned to the Capital 11yard line The extent of his injury was not known but he was taken from the

for eighth straight division title By Jimmy Golen The Associated Press BOSTON Not their best season Not their smoothest And certainly not the biggest title for a franchise that has 26 World Series championships in its illus Yankees Red Sox trious past Yet some where in the spray of champagne in the visitors clubhouse at Fenway Park on Saturday was the sat isfaction that these Yankees came farther to win this AL East championship than any New York team since Bucky Dent popped one into the net here in 1978 I cant take my glasses off Im crying like a man ager Joe Torre said on the field after New York beat Boston 84 to clinch the division for the eighth consecutive year This was the best of all of he added later The first is always memorable But this has to be the most special because of everything that went on tiiis Randy Johnson 178 won his sixth straight decision allowing three runs five hits and three walks striking out eight in innings The Yan kees scorched Tim Wakefield for three homers from Alex Rodriguez Hideki Matsui and Gary Sheffield to win for the 16th time in 20 games Mariano Rivera finished up gloving Johnny Damons high chopper and throwing to first baseman Tino Martinez to set off a restrained onfield cel ebration Once inside the clubhouse the Yankees sprayed cham pagne that dripped from the brims of the newest AL East Champion hats in their collec tion For stalwarts like Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams it is No 8 for Robinson Cano Aaron Small ChienMing Wang and Shawn Chacon it is a first I have been fortunate to be a part of this three Johnson said of his time with the Mariners and Diamond backs But you could see a lot of new kids in here that havent experienced Through a quirk in baseballs rules the Yankees 9566 won the division because of Clevelands loss to Chicago in the AL Central The loss by the Indians 9368 eliminated the possibility of a threeway tie and an unprecedented two game threeteam tiebreaker and gave New York the East by virtue of their 108 record against Boston Section editor Tommy Trujillo 9863060 [email protected] Design and headlines Marty Grccnstein [email protected] ;
