10The Daily Tar Heel Tuesday, October 11, 1988 Sports Football Next came UNC's first and only big offensive mistake. On second-and-8 from his own 24, Hall tried to hit tight end Damon Hueston over the middle. "1 saw the linebacker, he was there the whole time," Hall said. "I just thought 1 could get it in between him." That proved to be wishful thinking, as Wake's Ralph Godic picked off the pass and set up Elkins and Co. with a first down at the UNC 22. It took just five plays for Elkins to connect on his second TD pass of the game, a 7-yard strike to Proehl on a crossing pattern in front of UNC safety Victor Bullock. Hoyle's conversion gave Wake a 21-3 lead with 1:28 remaining in the quarter. On the evening Elkins, whore brother, Rod, played quarterback at UNC from 1980-82, completed 18 of Field Hockey rush brought back memories of Kenny "The Jet" Smith, as she dribbled by, around and through six Cavalier defenders before poking the ball by a perplexed Nolley. Action continued to be fast and furious, and at the 23:01 mark, Hershey closed out the scoring barrage by scorching a slapshot by a stunned Nolley. North Carolina clearly dominated all the key statistical areas of the game, ripping 42 shots on goal, w hile Virginia managed just 13. North 'ARSITY ! COMING EAST FRANKLIN BARBARA if i j jj iijjj ?

"Starting up at Michigan (a 19-9 Wake loss), weVe been going with a five-step drop passing game," Elkins said. "I can get the ball off and don't have to worry about protection. They can blitz, but they still can't get to me. It's really brought us to the point where we feel we can move the ball against anybody." Not to burst Elkins' bubble, but as Brown correctly noted, MWe seem to be bringing out the best in the opposing team's quarterbacks." Having proven they could strike quickly, the Deacons next decided to show UNC just how balanced they were. Wake ground out an 89-yard, 15-play drive that consumed nearly six minutes of the second quarter. The key play was Elkins' 18-yard toss to ' Proehl on third-and-7 from the UNC 25. from page 9 Carolina also received a 19-6 edge in penalty corners. "WeVe been playing pretty well defensively," she said. "WeVe lost only one game (4-0 to Old Domin ion), and that's the only game weVe given up any goals in. 1 think our players worked very hard, and we played with a lot of enthusiasm and intensity." The Tar Heels' next game is tonight at 7 against Duke at AstroTurf field, with the ACC regular-season cham pionship at stake.

North Carolina-responded with a nine-play, 70-yard scoring drive of its own. The big plays were Hall's 18 yard scramble on third-and-8 from the UNC 32 and Kennard Martin's 25-yard dash to the Wake 6. Soon thereafter, Hall rolled right and threw a pass that glanced off the hands of Wake cornerback A.J. Greene and into the waiting arms of Randy Marriott. The 5-foot-10 Greene achieved a measure of revenge on the point-after attempt, leaping high to block Hamp Greene's try. That left Wake up 28-9 with 2:33 left in the half. Ahead, but not satisfied. With 38 seconds left, Elkins hit Proehl down the left sideline with a 37-yard bomb to the UNC 8.. The same combination then hooked up on a looping timing pass that beat Tar Heel corner Larry Whiteside for the TD. Hoyle's PAT made it 35-9, Wake. In the second half, the Tar Heels gave only mild signals of a possible comeback. Michael Benefield's 1 yard TD dive capped a 75-yard drive, but Greene's conversion attempt was again blocked, leaving the score 35 15, Wake, with 5:22 to go in the quarter. Greene hit a 34-yard field goal early in the final period to make it a 17 point game, but Young scored from the 3 a few minutes later to make it 42-1 8. That was it until Hall hooked up with wide receiver Reggie Clark for a 6-yard scoring pass with 2:04 to go. Hall's two-point attempt was intercepted. V ELLIOT ROAD at E.

Less than four minutes later, at 70:02, sophomore forward Derek Missimo was pulled down in the penalty area, a definite no-no. Donald Cogsville took the ensuing penalty kick and deposited the freebie in the net for a 2-1 advantage. Missimo then fed Jose Coirolo in front of the goal for his first collegiate goal and some insurance for the Tar Heels. UNC played the entire second half with only ten men after back Marc Buffin was ejected in the first half. Sunday, Cogsville, showing no signs of the concussion that had held him out of two games two weeks before, again scored the game- winner, this one 6:50 into overtime, as the Tar Heels beat Florida Inter national 2-1. Cogsville also had a hand in the first Tar Heel goal, as he assisted a score by freshman Adam Tinkham. With the wins, UNC is 7-6-1 on the year, the first time they have been over the .500 mark this season. Cogsville also kept alive another streak in Sunday's match, but this one A's sweep LA. -goes From staff and wire reports The Oakland Athletics clinched the American League spot in this year's World Series Sunday after sweeping the Boston Red Sox, while the Los Angeles Dodgers found new life by beating the New York Mets twice in 12 hours to take a 3-2 lead in the National League Championship Series as it moves back to Los Angeles Tuesday. At Oakland on Saturday, the Athletics erased a 5-0 Red Sox lead thanks to home runs by Mark McGwire, Ron Hassey and Dave Henderson en route to a 10-6 victory. Sunday, the A.L. West champs clung to a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning before Jose Canseco singled, stole second and came home on McGwire's single to center. McGwire later scored on Don Baylor's sacrifice fly. Dennis Eckersley came on to shut down the Red Sox in the ninth, thereby record ing his fourth save of the series, a new record. The Athletics are the first team to sweep a best-of-seven championship series. In New York, rookie Tim Belcher won his second game of the playoffs and Kirk Gibson hit his second straight game-winning homer as Los Angeles beat the New York Mets 7 4 in Game 5 on Monday to move within one game of their first National League pennant since 1981. The teams now fly to Los Angeles, where the Dodgers can wrap up the best-of-seven series Tuesday when former Met Tim Leary opposes David Cone, the losing pitcher in Game 2. During the regular season, the Mets won 10 of 11 games from the Dodgers and won 56 games at home, including their last 11 at Shea Stadium. But the Dodgers came into New York to win two of three and take a 3-2 lead. The Dodgers won Game 4 in 12 innings on Gibson's homer shortly before 1 a.m. EDT.

The Mets and Dwight Gooden were three outs away from taking a ': J'; - A ' " t , 9 ' " shot in this weekend's volleybalil 4 was of dubious nature. For the second game in a row, the Tar Heels had a man thrown out of a game, and this time it was the Trenton, N.J., senior's turn. John Cocking began the play with a free kick from 30 yards out. Cogsville picked up the rebound and sent it home for the game-winner. But just seven seconds later, he found himself on the bench, ejected apparently for a head butt. The Tar Heels continued their see saw goalkeeper play this weekend, as senior Darren Royer netted four saves Sunday. Saturday, redshirt freshman Herb Sherry had three.

The Tar Heels were right on the Gamecocks heels but just couldnt catch them, finishing with at earns -Series berth; home - ' with- 3-1 lead in the series when Mike Sciosia tied the- score with a two-run homer. Gibson, who ended a 1 -for-16 slump with his game-winning homer in Game 4, hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning for his second homer in a little over 12 hours. With two outs in the ninth, Gibson beat out an infield hit, then appeared to reinjure his left hamstring stealing second and left the game. Jose Gonzalez ran for Gibson and scored the Dodgers' seventh run when Mike Marshall tripled to right-center. In all five games, the Dodgers have scored first, this time breaking through for three runs off loser Sid Fernandez in the fourth inning on 39-year-old Rick Dempsey's two-run double and an RBI double by Alfredo Griffin.

He missed the last half of 1987 after suffering a broken thumb in a collision at home plate with Kansas City's Bo Jackson. As a catcher for Baltimore in 1983, Dempsey was the World Series MVP and is 20-for-61 in postseason games. Griffin, a .167 batter hitting right handed, followed Dempsey's hit with a double to left-center field.
