Title bouts, local star top Glendale card

Some of the combatants have changed and following a reshuffling, the card is set for a day of pugilistic bombast Nov. 6 at Glendale Arena. “We will have 10 or 11 bouts,” promoter Scott Maling said. The main event will feature a 12-round rematch between Kostya Tszyu, International Boxing Federation, World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association junior welterweight champion, and challenger Sharmba Mitchell. The pair originally squared off Feb. 3, 2001, which resulted in a controversial seventh-round TKO victory by Tszyu (30-1, 24 KOs).

NASCAR roars back in to PIR

The Valley of the Sun’s salubrious late-fall climate, coupled with allure of NASCAR, is expected to attract more than 250,000 fans to Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Nov. 4-7.

The highlight of the four days of racing will be the Nov. 7 Checker Auto Parts 500, the third race from the end of the NASCAR Nextel Cup season.

Entering last weekend’s Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 at Atlanta Speedway (which was run before press time), Kurt Busch sat atop the points standings. He was 96 points ahead of runner-up Jeff Gordon and Dale Ernhardt Jr. was 125 points in arrears.

Owls slip past Hawks

Win sets up title showdown

Before the Oct. 29 contest between Buckeye and Agua Fria, Owls head coach Kelly Epley predicted another dogfight between the two West Valley Region schools.

That’s exactly what he got.

Leading 22-7 in the fourth quarter, the Owls needed a last-minute interception from defensive back David Baldanado to hold on for a 22-20 win.

“When we were up by that much I was getting nervous because that’s not how this series goes, it never has,” Epley said.

Knights blast Kingman; host Mustangs

Westview (3-5, 1-2) took out the frustrations of an injury-riddled season on Kingman (1-7, 0-3), another team decimated by injuries, steamrolling to a 55-10 road victory Oct. 22.

“The kids played well,” coach Jeff Bowen said. “Defensively, we did a good job. We didn’t give up a touchdown until their final possession of the game.

“The offensive line did a good job of pass protection and the run blocking was outstanding.”

Freshman girls sticking together

The Tolleson girls cross country team may be young and inexperienced, but that isn’t about to stop it from enjoying the season.

Horsing around Oct. 20 at the football bleachers during an afternoon practice in the rain, the freshman girls used the wheelchair access ramps as personal slip ’n’ slides, repeatedly gliding down the slick surface on their feet like ice skaters.

“We don’t care about winning,” freshman Amanda Rimbey said. “It’d be nice, but we just like to have fun.”

Runner breaks through after tragic incident

It’s often said a courageous athlete is one who gets up after being knocked down. Tolleson cross country athlete Joe Lopez experienced that personally, and has conquered the challenge.

In the first race of the season, at Estrella Mountain Regional Park, Lopez collapsed less than 200 feet from the finish line while leading.

Playoff hopes for Tolleson: slim to none

With two games remaining and a 3-5 record, the Wolverines are going to need a near miracle in order to get into the postseason this year.

Tolleson, which is 1-2 in the region, needs two wins and a combination of scenarios to play out in order to have a chance.

Considering one of those scenarios includes a Kingman victory over Peoria, a situation as likely as a snowy summer in Phoenix, the Wolverines will focus their attention on the seniors in the final two games of the year.
