Scores lower at home for junior high golfers

Skip to next story
PECOS, May 13 -- Playing their home course did wonders for the scores of
the Pecos Eagles' junior high golf squads on Saturday, though other area
teams also were able to cut their totals on the Reeves County Golf

The boys knocked 37 strokes off their previous best team score, the
previous weekend in Andrews, shooting a 363 over what was the final 18
holes of play of the season for the seventh and eighth graders.

Meanwhile, Pecos' girls -- playing only nine holes on Saturday --
knocked 40 shots off their previous best total of the season, shooting a
226 on familiar grounds.

"We did better at home," said coach Mary Evans. "We got Cindy (Mauldin)
in 10th place as an individual."

Mauldin shot a 50 on Saturday and has a four-round total of 230. Sarah
Flores shot a 54 and is at 247 overall, while Candace Hilliard and
Tabitha Akins both shot 61s and Cassie Foster had a 67 for the other `A'
team score. Foster has a 279 for 36 holes of play.

The Eagles had three other golfers play Saturday. Brandi Bradley shot a
69, Ashlee Canon had a 71 and Sandy Belles shot a 72.

The Eagles' 226 score was still only sixth best on the day, but was
closer to the leaders than any time since the opening round last month
in Kermit.

Fort Stockton led with a 192 score and are at 840 overall. They were
followed by Andrews at 198-859; Monahans at 213-891; Andrews `B' at
215-943 and Fort Stockton `B' at 224. Pecos' total gave them a 1032
score for 36 holes, while Monahans `B' shot a 278, dropping them behind
Pecos with a 1070 total through 36 holes.

Neither Fort Stockton `B' nor Kermit, which shot a 254 Saturday, had
fielded teams in all four rounds of the tournament.

The boys' 363 total was fifth best on the day and gave them a 1599 score
over 72 holes of play. Andrews leads with a 1215 score, after a round of
320 Saturday, and are followed by both Fort Stockton and Monahans at
1389, after the Panthers shot a 331 and the Loboes at 334.

Andrews `B' is fourth, at 347-1439; Monahans `B' is fifth at 369-1521;
the Eagles' 1599 leaves them in sixth; Fort Stockton `B' is seventh at
375-1637; Kermit `A' is eighth at 403-1665; and the Eagles' `B' team is
ninth, with a 465-2006 total. Kermit ~`B' shot 432 on Saturday, but does
not have a four-round score.

Individually for the Eagles, Cortney Freeman shot an 87 and is at 369
overall; Tye Edwards shot an 89-395; Trent Riley shot a 92; Jae Ewing
shot a 95-416; and Chris Friar shot a 100-436.

For the `B' team, Alex Garcia shot a 101; John Canon shot a 114 and is
at 479 overall; Randall Reynolds shot a 123; Freddie Caballero had a 127
and Jason Baker a 133.

Coach Kim Anderson said that the boys would not play the rain-delayed
final round today, because they would have to miss afternoon classes to
get in all 18 holes. The girls, who play only nine-hole rounds, will
close out their season on the Pecos County Golf Course this afternoon,
Evans said.

Familiar tune by Jazz is Lakers' swan song

Associated Press Writer
SALT LAKE CITY, May 13 -- In overtime, Utah's strategy was as
predictable as it was unstoppable.

Give the ball to Karl Malone and try to stay out of his way.

That was just fine with the Jazz power forward, who responded with a
performance underscoring his bid for league MVP: 32 points, including
six of Utah's nine overtime points, and 20 rebounds in a 98-93 victory
Monday night that eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers from the NBA

The outcome put the Jazz in the Western Conference title for the fourth
time in six years. In the three previous appearances, they have failed
to reach the NBA Finals.

``I knew they were going to run a lot of plays for me in overtime,''
Malone said with a grin after giving the Jazz a 4-1 decision in the
best-of-7 second-round series. ``I never forget my own plays; it gives
you a chance to be the hero, or the goat.''

With the two teams tied 89-89 at the end of regulation, Malone put Utah
ahead to stay, 91-89, by making two free throws 36 seconds into
overtime. He also hit a pair of jumpers as the Jazz outscored the Lakers
9-4 in the extra period.

John Stockton had 24 points and 10 assists for the Jazz, who will play
the winner of the Houston-Seattle series in the Western finals. The
Rockets lead 3-1, with Game 5 tonight.

Knicks 89, Heat 76
Alonzo Mourning's airball from the foul line midway through the
fourth quarter highlighted the Heat's offensive woes in New York, as the
Knicks' defense turned the Heat into a misfiring, mistake-prone shell of
their former selves.

The Knicks took a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 series, thanks in part to
John Starks, who bounced back from poor performances in the first three
games with a team-high 21 points. New York took control with a 21-5 run
in the second quarter, and Miami cut its deficit below double digits
just once the rest of the night.

Starks, the Sixth Man of the Year winner, broke out of his slump with a
9-of-12 shooting night. Patrick Ewing had 20 points and Allan Houston
added 17, including 12 in the second quarter when the Knicks took
control for good.

Larry Johnson added 15 for the Knicks, who shot 50.7 percent from the
field. It was the first time in the series that either team made more
than half of its shots.
