Poway and Valhalla high schools played for two halves and four overtime periods to decide the San Diego Section boys' 3-A soccer championship--and left it undecided. The teams played to a 2-2 tie and were declared co-champions under a section rule enacted after the end of last season that prohibits the use of shoot-outs to decide championship matches. Poway (18-1-6) took the lead on the first half on a goal by John Ashworth.

Brian Boggess hasn't had much competition in San Diego County this year. The thrower from El Capitan High School has the top mark in the discus (183-9) by more than 23 feet. Thursday, he increased his lead in the shotput. For the third week in a row, Boggess bettered his own San Diego County best in the shotput. He became the first California prep athlete to throw farther than 60 feet this season, throwing 60-1 1/2. El Capitan Coach Dick Wilkins said Boggess could go even farther.

Lincoln High School's most unrecognizable point producer this season is constantly overflowing with enthusiasm. He's an excitable sort. But you'll never see him in the end zone doing a fancy dance. Check the sidelines. Yes, that's him, the kid following Coach Vic Player around like Player owes him money or something. Meet Eric Griffin, the Hornets' placekicker. On Lincoln's high-flying football team, that's like being Morgan Fairchild's make-up artist.

San Diego's top three football recruits didn't sign letters of intent Wednesday, the first day high school athletes were able to do so, but they still received plenty of attention. Vista running back Tommy Booker, Oceanside wide receiver-linebacker Junior Seau and Lincoln wide receiver Patrick Rowe still haven't picked a college. "Patrick is still sorting things out," said Ed Rowe, his father. "So nothing's new with him."

In pro football, this is the age of specialization. Twenty-two players for 22 positions. In high school football, at least in San Diego County, this new age has yet to arrive. Many top players seem to excel at a lot of positions and, in some cases, different sports. This year's Times' All-County football team contains many examples. For instance: --Fallbrook's Bill Dunckel, the county's leading receiver this season, who last year was an All-County kicker.
