Alex Papike didn't need practice to be perfect when the Cal Lutheran football team played Azusa Pacific on Saturday. Papike, a soccer player, had no opportunity to practice with the Kingsmen football team after he joined it Friday night. But the kicker made his only attempt, an extra point, in a 41-13 loss to the Cougars. A sophomore reserve in soccer, Papike has become a crucial member of the football team.

Western Football Conference CS Northridge (6-1, 3-0) vs. Santa Clara (5-3, 1-2) At Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara: 7 p.m. Northridge could clinch at least a share of the WFC championship with a victory. The Matadors, ranked ninth in Division II and winners of a school-record six in a row, are facing an old nemesis in Santa Clara. Last season, the Broncos held on to defeat CSUN, 21-20, when, with 21 seconds remaining, the Matadors failed on a two-point conversion attempt.

The Charger coaching staff is going through its first shakeup under Coach Dan Henning, and at least one move being considered is not his idea. It was announced Wednesday that Larry Pasquale, special teams coach of the New York Jets, will replace Joe Madden in the same position with the Chargers. Madden, whose kicking and kick-return teams were plagued by a series of miscues last season, will be reassigned as an administrative assistant. Henning said he agreed with that decision.

Tom Condon may be of a differing opinion, but it isn't true that the world's problems can be blamed on replacement officials. In fact, aside from the normal assortment of questionable calls that happen on any given Sunday, the backups, despite having their moments, didn't embarrass themselves the way many thought they might. And, to that end, there were plenty of occurrences on the field--negative or otherwise--that simply couldn't be linked to a black-and-white shirt.

Bob Doering, Cal Lutheran's athletic director, had his hands full last week on the Kingsmen's football trip to Sonoma State. When some of Cal Lutheran's luggage--including some uniforms--mysteriously disappeared and did not arrive at San Francisco International Airport with the team at 10 a.m., Doering took the job of investigator. First, Doering waved goodby to the Kingsmen, who filed onto buses that would make the hourlong trip to Sonoma State.
