Page 6 Cheney Free Press Thursday, Sept. 26, 1985 Sports Cheney Blackhawks discover winning wa Cheney High School's fall sports teams turned in strong performances during the past week, led once again by the football team, which defeated the Riverside Rams 27-0 in wet weather Friday, Sept. 20. Both the boys and girls tennis teams had an easy time with Deer Park Thursday, Sept. 19, bringing in 6-1 scores. The boys team also defeated Clarkston 4-3 on Sept. 21, to raise their Frontier League record to 2-1. The girls stand at 2-1 also, following a 0-7 loss to Clarkston. Cheney High's volleyball team com- pleted its pre-season warm-up with two victories against one loss at the Ferris Invitational tourney Sept. 21. The girls defeated Kostash of Canada and Ferris, but lost to North Central. Cheney's cross country teams contin- ued their pre-season competition at the Shadle Park Invitational Sept. 21. Top competitors for the Blackhawks were the sophomore boys, who came in fifth. Ground Attack The Blaekhawks completed only one pass--a !3 yard throw from Jason Kent to Marty Jessett--but didn't need any air support as they amassed 393 yards rushing on 63 carries. Cheney's defense was as stingy as the offense was productive, allowing the Class A Rams only 169 yards, 69 of those through the air. Following a scoreless first quarter, Cheney sprung out to a 13-0 halftime lead on two John Beauvais touchdown runs. Beauvais finished the evening with 104 yards on 19 carries. Key to the Blackhawks' easy running was the offensive line, said coach Tom Oswald. "We had a great effort out of our offensive line of Dan Jarms, Larry Hagel, Lance Jordan, Scott Miller, Chris Banchero, John Hughes, and Steve Emtman," he said. Third quarter scoring was led by Chris Templeton, who added six points on a 21-yard touchdown run. Jason Kent added two points with a three yard conversion run. Templeton finished with 144 yards on 23 carries. Kent, who had sprained his ankle Thursday evening, ran three times for 18 yards. "We weren't sure if he could play, but he responded very well to treatment and played very well under adverse conditions," said Oswald. Kent has been substituting for the injured John Sherman. Completing the scoring was Craig Lynch, who ran two yards for a touchdown in the final quarter. "We have four fine running backs in John Beauvais, Eric Lambeau, Craig Lynch and Chris Templeton, and they all ran tough," said Oswald. Lambeau, who rushed for 58 yards, also returned an interception for 34 yards against Riverside. The Blackhawks face AAA opposition Friday, Sept. 27 at the high school field, when they play Lewis and Clark High School of Spokane. "Lewis and Clark will be far and away the best team we have played to date," said Oswald. "They are well coached and have good size and quickness. We'll have our Cheney High senior halfback Eric Lambeau attempts to elude a tackler during football action Friday, Sept. 20. hands full." Cheney beats Deer Park Both boys and girls tennis teams defeated their opposition easily Sept. 19 in the first home match of the season. For the boys, it was the first victory of the season, while the girls upped their record to 2-0. "Everybody did play really well," said girls coach Craig Austin. The girls team found the opposition stiffer against Clarkston Sept. 21, losing all seven matches in straight sets. The boys team picked up their second victory, however, as they defeated Clarkston 4-3. Cheney High's top three singles play- ers, Bob Austin, Bruce Shreeve and Scott Wahl had victories, as well as the Blackhawks' first doubles team of Scott Barnes and Tom Puskarich. Rounding out the boys team is fourth singles player Jeff Wall, the second doubles team of Mike Grogan and Mike Gildea, and the third doubles team of Nathan Dors and Mark Maakestad. "The big test will be this Thursday," said boys coach Jeff Butler. The tennis teams travel to perennial power Pull- man. "It's always tough to go down there...but everybody's healthy," said Butler. "We have a chance." First home match Cheney High's girls volleyball team opens league play with their first home match of the season Thursday, Sept. 26. Junior varsity action starts at 6 p.m. at the high school gym, with the varsity set to play at 7:30, against Clarkston. In the Ferris Tourney Sept. 21, the Blaekhawks defeated Kostash High School of Canada 15-9, 15-11 and beat Ferris 15-11 and 16-14. Cheney High lost to North Central 2-15, then rallied in the second game, but fell short by a 13-15 score.

Defense is the Lumberjacks' forte this season, and it has Eastern Washington University head coach Dick Zornes a bit concern- ed. Zornes' unbeaten Eagles (3-0) host NAU (2-1) this Saturday at Albi Sta- dium in Spokane on "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Night." The famous cheerleaders will appear at halftime of EWU sports bits IMPRESSIVE AT BYU EWU won two of six matches last weekend in the BYU Invitational in Provo, Utah. Both wins were against Mountain West Conference foes Boise State and Idaho State, giving the Eagles a promising outlook entering conference play in October. "We had a couple of very good wins," EWU coach Pare Parks said. "A lot of people took notice that we're re-establishing our- selves as a contender in the conference. People won't look at us as a doormat anymore." MEN PLACE HIGH AT WHITMAN EWU's men finished fourth in the 13-team Whitman Invitational cross country meet in Walla Walla last Saturday. Junior Stan Holman (Spo- kane) was the men's top finisher by placing fifth overall, with freshman Alan Hjort (Marysville) placing eighth. WSU won the team title with 33 points followed by Pacific Lutheran, Idaho and EWU. Eastern's "B" squad finished 12th. WOMEN MAKE DEBUT EWU's women also split their squad and finished sixth and seventh at Whitman to open their season, electing not to participate in the University of Montana Invitational as earlier scheduled. Freshmen Nancy Selby (Sprague) and Mindy Ball (Clarkston) led EWU, finishing 22nd and 28th, respectively. This week both the men and women are at the Spokane Com- munity College Invitational. FIRST PRACTICES, GAMES THIS WEEK EWU's baseball team begins its fall schedule this week at the Gonzaga University Tournament Friday through Sunday at Pecarovich Field.

The Eagles' potent offense ver- sus NAU's stingy defense is the main event. Zornes' concern stems from the Lumberjacks' 27-3 loss to Idaho last Saturday in which NAU held the Vandals to 360 yards in total offense. nearly 200 below their per-game aver- age. Idaho quarterback Scott Linehan, who led the nation last week in passing yardage with an average of 386.5 per game, was held to an uncharacteristic 157 yards through the air. Although the Vandals scored 27 points, one touch- down came on a punt return and NAU's own sputtering offense made the game a rout. "I've never seen anybody play that well defensively against Idaho," Zornes said Sunday after viewing the Idaho- NAU game film. "Anytime you can hold Idaho under 200 yards passing you're playing pretty well. They have as good a defense as we'll see this season." EWU quarterback Rick Worman en- ters the game with impressive passing statistics much like Linehan did, ha,/,- ing thrown for 1,064 yards and nine touchdowns in three games. By com- parison, Zornes won,t be surprised if EWU's offense is slowed down a bit from its current pace of 485.7 yards per game. The Lumberjacks are currently giving up an average of just 295.7 yards per game, 138.3 rushing and 157.3 passing. "I certainly wouldn't rate our offense ahead of Idaho's, and NAU shut them down pretty well," Zornes said. "They have some good defensive concepts that could make it tough for us to move the ball. They're a difficult team to read defensively because they have alot of different looks. And they have some good athletes so they'll be able to match up man-to-man with us pretty well." Middle linebacker Randy Cook leads the defense with 47 total tackles this season. Tackle Greg Roskopf has 20 tackles, two forced fumbles and two sacks, and strong safety Tony Cullen has 37 tackles. Cornerback George Duarte has three interceptions, all in NAU's first two games. NAU's offensive attack isn't quite as scary, as the Lumberjacks average 324 yards per game, 137.3 on the ground and 186.7 through the air. A 49-yard field goal by kicker Goran Lingmerth were the only points NAU could muster against Idaho, and it wasn't until the third quarter that the Lumberjacks were able to reach the Vandal 30-yard line for the first time. Quarterback Craig Austin has com- pleted 46 of 73 passes for 561 yards and two touchdowns in three games. Start- ing tailback Jonas Eldridge leads the team in rushing with 275 yards on 68 carries, and Jerry Davis is the top receiver with 12 catches for 219 yards. Punter John Earl is averaging 44.0 yards per boot after punting for a 47.6 average against Idaho. "If they can generate some offense, they'll be tough," Zornes added. "It should be a fine football game." (conoco00 Presents Cheney High School . Athletes of the Week.
