July 15, 1992|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Staff Writer

If anyone plans to make a run at Larry Pickett and Jenny Caple -- current leaders in the six-race Twilight Series -- tomorrow may be the night.

The Twilight Series, sponsored by the Westminster Road Runners, resumes at 7 p.m. tomorrow with the Piney Run 10,000-meter run.

After three races, Pickett leads the men's open division, followed by Paul Hannsen in second and Peter Dodd in third.

The women's open division has Caple leading the way with Liuda Galiniatis in second.

Both Pickett and Caple took control of their respective divisions by capturing the Three Mile Hashawha Trail Run July 2 -- the third race in the series.

Dave Lowe and Judi Bullock are leaders in the masters divisions.

In other sports this week:

* The South Carroll Swim Club will play host to the Carroll County Invitational beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday in Winfield.

About 185 swimmers are expected to compete in boys and girls age groups from 6-and-under up to the 15-18 division. Freedom, Westminster Municipal Pool, Westminster Riding Club, Taneytown and Carroll residents of the West Howard Swim Club will have swimmers competing, along with the host-team South Carroll.

* International Foreign Car (3-0) will try to remain undefeated in the Carroll division of the Carroll County Summer Lacrosse League tonight when it takes on Monroe Construction (2-1) at 6:30 at the Carroll County Sports Complex.

Both teams are coming off close wins on Sunday, as International beat previously unbeaten Dr. Deigert's (2-1), 5-4, while Monroe needed overtime to edged Manchester Contractors (0-3), 9-8.

Brady Slater and Dennis Hurl both scored a pair of goals in Sunday's win, as International took over sole possession of first place.

Monroe saw a 7-1 third-quarter lead evaporate before beating Manchester in overtime. Alex Arthur had three goals for the winners, who also got a pair from Jamie Carver. Mark Fesche had four goals for winless Manchester.

In other Carroll division action tonight, Farmers & Merchants Bank (2-1) will go up against Dr. Deigert's at the complex, while A.P. Boone (0-3) will square off against Manchester Contractors at Sandymount park. Both games are slated for 6:30.

The two undefeated teams in the travel division will be in action on Sunday. Shannon's Saloon (3-0), coming off a 19-1 thumping of Monoghan's Pub last weekend, will face Malony's Bar (1-2) at 4 p.m. at Sandymount Park.

Greene Turtle (3-0) could have a tough time against Towson Sports Medicine (2-1). That one starts at the complex at 6 p.m.

Both teams are coming off solid wins as the Turtle knocked off Wiley House (0-3), 14-6, and Towson Sports handed Malony's Bar a 10-6 loss.

* In South Penn League baseball, the Taneytown Cardinals will be looking to extend a three-game lead over Littlestown this week, traveling to New Oxford tomorrow and Cashtown on Sunday.

Tomorrow's game will start at 6:15 p.m., while Sunday's afternoon tilt will begin at 2.

The Cards (20-4) thwarted any Thurmont ideas of first place by winning a pair from the Frederick County team last week.

Thurmont (15-9) was 3 1/2 games back entering Thursday's game against the front-running Cardinals. But Taneytown came away with a 7-6 win on Thursday and then rolled to a 13-4 win on Saturday.

Littlestown (17-7) is the only team within striking distance of the defending-champion Cardinals. After sweeping Mummasburg, 6-5 and 6-3, the Dodgers are three games back.

The Westminster Elks (9-11), which entered the week in sixth place, will travel to Cashtown (13-9) tomorrow.
