Eagles face OHS, Alpine in rematches

PECOS, Aug. 31, 1999 -- The Pecos Eagles, Alpine Bucks and Odessa High Bronchos will get a chance to see how far they've gone forwards or backwards in comparison to each other tonight, when the teams play their second dual meet in three weeks in Alpine.

The Eagles will face Odessa High first, at 5:30 p.m. after the Bronchos and Bucks play each other at 4:30 p.m. Pecos and Alpine will finish things off, starting at 7:45 p.m.

Playing in Odessa on Aug. 16, the Eagles opened the season by losing to Alpine, 15-5, 15-7, then beat Odessa High, 15-12, 17-15. Since then the Eagles have split their eight matches on the season and are 5-5 after placing fifth over the weekend in the Cantaloupe Classic Tournament.

Pecos played without starters Philonicus Fobbs and Amy Chabarria against Fort Stockton due to disciplinary reasons and lost to the Prowlers, 4-15, 15-12, 15-4, then came back to beat Marfa, 15-6, 15-4 and Monahans, 15-0, 15-9. Alpine finished one spot higher than Pecos in the tournament, but won one less game. The Bucks beat Monahans, 15-4, 15-8, then lost to tournament champion Greenwood, 15-10, 15-8, and to Fort Stockton in the third place game, 15-9, 8-15, 15-13.

Pecos' Ashley Salcido earned all-tournament honors for the Eagles due to her kills and serves, while the Bucks' Oleta McWilliams was named the tournament's outstanding hitter.

While Pecos did come back and play well after getting Fobbs and Chabarria back, coach Becky Granado was hoping her back line defense would improve after struggling at times in the second game against Monahans, when the Loboes scored several points due to late reaction by the Eagles.

"We can't afford to give up plays like that. We're just not reacting quickly enough to the ball," Granado said.

Odessa High struggled through the first week of the season, but improved this past weekend at the San Angelo Invitational. The defeated last year's Cantaloupe Classic champion, El Paso Bowie, in pool round play and reached the championship round, where, they ended up finishing fifth overall in the tournament.

The Bronchos lost to Midland Lee, 15-9, 15-4, then beat El Paso Montwood, 15-7, 12-15, 17-15, and Canyon, 15-8, 10-15, 15-3.

This will be the first of two matchups in four days for the Eagles and Bronchos. They'll meet at 5:30 p.m. Friday in pool round play at the Seminole Invitational. San Angelo Lake View, which won both the Ector County ISD Tournament and the San Angelo Invitational the past two weeks, and Lubbock Coronado are the other teams in the Eagles' pool.

Starting time moved up for  season opener

PECOS, Aug. 31, 1999 -- The starting time for the Pecos Eagles' season opening football game against the Denver City Mustangs has been moved up an hour, from 8 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Thursday at Odessa's Ratliff Stadium.

"They moved it up at the request of the (Odessa) Chamber of Commerce," said Eagles' head coach Gary Grubbs.

It's the second year in a row the Eagles have started the season with a game in Odessa against Denver City. The Mustangs won last year's opener by a 20-14 final score.

Denver City will be the designated home team for Thursday's game, although the game comes off the Eagles' 1999 home football schedule. Pecos will have four home games instead of five this season, beginning with their Sept. 24 game against Crane.
