Sports Briefs : Lawn Bowling Along

August 13, 1987

A trio of lawn bowlers, including Long Beach resident Doreen Collins, extended their opponents to an extra end before finishing second last weekend in the annual Joslyn Mixed Triples Tournament in Santa Barbara. Collins, a world-class bowler, competed with Neil McInnes and Barry Pickup, both of Pasadena. They were favored to win the title, but received a strong challenge from Joe and Thelma Duran, and Winston Wilson, all of Santa Barbara.

Gaynor to Start Saturday

The solid performance of backup quarterback Doug Gaynor, a second-year player from Cal-State Long Beach, has been impressing Cincinnati Bengals Coach Sam Wyche.

Wyche has scheduled Gaynor to start Saturday's first preseason game against the Bucs at Tampa Bay.

"Doug's been throwing the ball well the last 10 days," Wyche said. "He got off to kind of a slow start in training camp. He's not a pretty practice player, but he gets the job done in a game."
