Australian teenager Joel Parkinson outclassed the worlds best surfers to take first place in the Billabong/Mitchell Surfing Foundation Pro at Jeffrey's Bay, South Africa -- the seventh stop on the 1999 G-SHOCK ASP. World Championship Tour.

The 18-year-old surfed to a convincing win over Hawaii's Ross Williams, 21.5-17.45. It was Williams' first final since 1996.

Williams' runner up finish moves him from 27th to 14th on the WCT ratings.

Hammerheads keep pace

The second-place Hawaii Hammerheads remained a game off the pace of the Texas Terminators with a 36-13 Indoor Professional Football League thrashing of the Louisiana Bayou Beast (4-8) Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

The win, the Hammerheads' seventh in their last eight games, clinched an IPFL playoff berth and improved their record to 9-4.

Eddie Klaneski and Niko Vitale each had two interceptions for Hawaii. Klaneski returned one of his picks for a 49-yard touchdown.

Texas defeated the Mississippi Firedogs, 44-41, Saturday night and is 10-3 with three games left in the regular season.

Kimura lifts Movers

Danny Kimura had three hits and drove in four runs as the Hawaii Island Movers beat the Kauai All-Stars, 16-2, in an exhibition baseball game at Rainbow Stadium yesterday.

Team Legend 2 wins

Team Legend 2, which caught a 974-pound marlin, won the Skins Marlin Derby, which finished yesterday off Kailua-Kona.

Mike Vidal, owner of Legend 2, caught the big marlin.
