Six players from the replacement team that earned the Chargers three straight victories during the NFL strike last season were among 10 free agents signed by the team Monday for the 1988 season.
The six players--Mike Kelley, Joe Goebel, Pat Miller, Duane Pettitt, Stacey Price and Ken Zachary--joined the team for the three replacement games, but were released after the strike ended.
The Chargers also signed placekicker Steve DeLine, defensive backs Ron Foster and Enis Jackson and defensive lineman John Fletcher.
Guard John Weiss came off the bench and made four of five three-pointers in a 14-0 run in the first half as Winthrop College rallied to beat United States International University, 75-58, in a nonconference game in Golden Hall.
After outscoring USIU, 14-0, Winthrop led, 33-21, with 1:14 remaining in the half and never trailed again. Weiss finished with 12 points. Greg Washington and Kenny Smith each scored 17 for Winthrop (14-11), of Rock Hills, S.C.
