Hammerheads lose

The Hawaii Hammerheads played another game of catch-up with James Brown and the unbeaten Texas Terminators last night at Austin, Texas, and fell short again, this time by a 49-34 margin that dropped their Indoor Professional Football League record to 1-2.

Brown passed for 217 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 38 yards and two more scores as the Terminators (3-0) built a 21-6 early lead and held on.

Last Saturday, Brown also had a hand in four touchdowns in a 36-21 victory at Austin.

The Hammerheads' Brian Ah Yat completed 20 of 30 passes for 185 yards and three touchdowns -- two of them to Eddie Klaneski, who had eight receptions for 103 yards.

The Hammerheads play the Idaho Stallions at 2 p.m. May 9 at Blaisdell Arena.

Seki, Arakawa champs

Punahou's Jim Seki and Bobbie Arakawa won the ILH boys' and girls' individual golf championships in sudden-death playoffs yesterday at Waialae Country Club.

Seki defeated Kamehameha's Justin Kim after both finished the 36-hole tournament at even-par 142. Arakawa beat Punahou teammate Mari Kotake after they tied at 158 in regulation.

Jobe, Chong win titles

Second-seeded Ikaika Jobe defeated top-seeded Jesse Paer, 6-2, 6-3, in an all-Punahou boys' singles final and No. 2 Tracie Chong of Iolani downed No. 1 Jafra DePontes of Kamehameha, 6-1, 6-4, for the girls' title in yesterday's windup of the ILH postseason tennis tournament.

Wahine lose to Cowgirls

Oklahoma State's Sarah Knife Chief got the best of Hawaii ace Kelly Gentle as the Cowgirls defeated the Wahine, 3-1, in a nonconference softball game yesterday at Stillwater, Okla.

Knife Chief scattered eight hits, stranding a dozen UH baserunners. Gentle gave up five hits in five innings but two were two-out run-scoring doubles in the fourth and fifth that decided the outcome.

The Wahine are 27-19 this season, the Cowgirls 20-21.

Isle surfers sparkle

Top-seeded Sunny Garcia led the advance from yesterday's opening round and Fred Patacchia Jr. of Haleiwa had the second-best overall score of the day in the Body Glove Surfbout XII surfing meet at Lower Trestles in San Clemente, Calif.
