"There's no pain, but it's still sore," said Walsh, who was confident two days earlier that Montana, injured in a win over the Rams last Sunday, would be practicing by Thursday.

Matt Cavanaugh was born with cerebral palsy and doesn't need to be reminded twice about how to overcome challenges. His life has been full of them. He sought another challenge last spring when he applied for the vacant basketball coach's job at Western High.

The jinx, along with a two-game losing streak, is over for the Detroit Lions. After suffering through two straight last-second defeats to the San Francisco 49ers in the last two years, the Lions stunned the defending Super Bowl champions, 23-21, Sunday behind a 116-yard rushing performance by fullback James Jones, who had 30 carries and scored on a two-yard run. "Forget about my individual statistics," Jones said of the victory which left the Lions at 4-3.

Western (8-1) outscored the Indians, 16-3, in the first quarter to record its eighth consecutive victory. "We have to depend on our defense because we are not a scoring machine," said first-year Western Coach Matt Cavanaugh. "Don't expect us to score many games in the 70s."
