Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Oilers Ambush Redskins 48-3 By John Nelson Associated Preti Sports Writer The turnstile count was 21,560. Not at Washington. Not at Baltimore. At both. Fans stayed away in droves at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium where 6,792 people came to sea tho Detroit Lions beat the Colts 6-3 in a National Football League exhibition game. And only 14,768 people were interested enough to watch the Houston Oilers—tile worst team in the NFL last year—beat George Allen’s Washington Redskins 48-3 at RFR Stadium, If the NFL was worried, it wasn’t saying. Jim Kensil, the executive director of the NFL, declined to say anythig. “Any comment on that would have to come from the owners,” said Kensil, reached by telephone at his home in New York, Terry Bledsoe, a spokesman for the NFL Management Council which represents the owners in negotiations with striking players, said: “When you’re as far apart on money issues as we are, the differences are far greater than one crowd of two. “We’re not happy about the small crowds, but I suspect it’s a problem that will tend to resolve itself as the kids get experience and the vets report to camp,” Bledsoe said. “You don’t want to talk about it when it sounds like we’re making excuses,” he said, “and we don’t want to do that. But Baltimore never did well in the preseason.” Ed Garvey, executive director of the NFL Players Associ ation, said, “It’s a shame for football.” Bill Curry, president of the players union, said the dismal attendance figures were “depressing, and it’s a shame.” But he said people who characterize these things as wins and defeats are wrong, and it only shows the two sides in the 41-day strike must “make an agreement.” Dave Wooley’s four-yard touchdown strike with six minutes left in the game enabled the Lions to offset a Toni Lin-hart field goal of 37 yards for the Colts. Rookie tackle Archie Pear-mon got to Baltimore quarterback Bob Bobrowski twice, forcing the Colts to punt from deep in their own territory and helping to set up tile winning touchdown. Rookie quarterback Jim Foote led the Oilers by completing IO of 16 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns before leaving the game early in the fourth quarter. Foote’s 42-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Billy Johnson, another rookie, gave the Oilers a 7-0 lead late in the first period. The Colts gained 196 yards in the first half under signal caller Tom Pierantozzi. But he was injured, and the Colts couldn’t get moving after intermission. With 1:32 left to play, Baltimore tried another field goal from 44 yards out, but Lin-hart’s boot was wide to the left. Foote also hit Ronnie Coleman, a running back from Ala bama A&M, on a 26-yard scoring pass in the second quarter. Coleman took a handoff from F’oota in tho second half and threw 14 yards to Jerry Broadnax for another score. At Memorial Stadium in Berkeley Saturday, the Oakland Raiders will have 20 veterans ready to face the Atlanta Falcons who also have prepared a score of vets. Veteran QB Ken Stabler likely will see some action for the Raiders, while rookie Kim McQuilken has been throwing for the Falcons. The Raiders don’t expect to attract more than 17,000 fans. Philadelphia Coach Mike McCormack has a rookie-filled squad to face the Cincinnati Bengals, relatively loaded with veterans. McCormack would like Roman Gabriel to put in Player Hypnosis Works for 64 in PGA By Will Grimsley CLEMMONS, N.C. (AP) -“I don’t like to call it self-hypnosis,” Gary Player said. “The name for it is concentration — that’s a word most golfers know. Concentration and hard work.” Thus, the 150-pound shotmak-ing computer from Johannesburg described the mental and physical discipline that carried him to the Masters and British Open championships this year and now has sent him surging into contention for the 56th PCA crown. “I knew I had a lot of shots to make up. I know it looks like I’m unemotional out there. I suppose I am. I just drop my head, look at the ground and keep going.” Player was five shots out of Jhe lead, starting the second round Friday in the late afternoon after John Schlee had forged into the undisputed lead with 68-67—135 and four other players, including Jack Nick-laus and Lee Trevino, had posted sub-par scores for 36 holes. Then came a drenching, 45-minute shower, suspending play for that period, and the situ* —AP Wirephoto Schlee Misses Birdie adon looked even bleaker for the late starters, chief of whom were Player, Sam Snead and Arnold Palmer. Then came Player, marching over the fairways of the 7,050-yard Tanglewood course, spewing out birdies like a relentless machine.

Going into the final 36 holes today and Sunday, Schlee at 135 holds a one-stroke lead over Hubert Green, 68-68—136, followed by Player and his South African fellow countryman, Bobby Cole, 69-68, tied at 137; Jack Nicklaus, 69-69—138, and rallying Lee Trevino, 73-66— 139. For one stretch of holes, at least, the eighth through the 14th, Player looked like the best practitioner of the craft in the world, canning six birdies in the space of seven holes and reeling off five consecutive threes. “Have I ever done better?” the dark-eyed South African repeated a question afterward. “In the Masters, I had six birdies in a row. That’s better, I think.” Player’s 64 tied the PGA record, set by winner Bobby Nichols and Nicklaus in the PGA at Columbus Country Club in 1964. It was the best competitive round ever played over the par 35-85—70 Tanglewood course, a hilly layout with gunbarrel fairways, 111 sand bunkers and rough as tough as steel wool. He throws himself into such deep concentration, he admits, “I wouldn’t recognize my wife if I saw her in the gallery.” “He don’t talk much,” said Gary’s caddie, 40-year-old Clarence Simington, a black oper-ator-inspector for the tobacco company here who has caddied ; only at country clubs. 36-Hole Leaders SDeier ss Kingman lh DvPadcr c BMIIIer 3b Barr p 4 0 I 4 I 2 3 0 I Total SanFranclsco Chicago DP—SanFranclsco 33 3 7 3 Total I. cisco 7, Chicago 6 2B--BMiller, DvRader. **“   ii),    .....

But the thought of Mike Reid, their number one draft choice, Bill Foliar and Royce Berry hitting Gabe, well....” Miami Coach Don Shula says, he won’t be using quarterback Bob Griese just to boost an expected low attendance that could cost the Dolphins $100,000. “That would have been an insult to the fans if I used him for just a few plays. I don’t want to lure fans into the stadium under those conditions,” Shula said. The Dolphins have 34 vets in camp, but only a handful will see action against New Orleans.

First-round action has been re-scheduled for Monday. First-round action Monday will match defending champion Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson, 54-6, against Burlington, 46-8, and 6 p.m., and Dubuque Hempstead, 23-5, against Fort Dodge, 24-9, at 8 p.m. Iowa Region SCCA Sponsors Two Events The Iowa Region of the Sports Car Club of America will sponsor a two-event weekend beginning Saturday at 7 p.m. A rally will be staged at Lindale Plaza at 7 and a gymkhana is also at Lindale Sunday at 12 noon. It didn’t take Jim Northrup long to get himself acclimated to his new surroundings in the National League. Purchased by Montreal from Detroit earlier this week, Northrup at first balked at reporting, then showed up in time for Friday night’s game at Houston. The Astros wish he had waited a little longer. All the veteran outfielder did was stroke a game-tying home run in the seventh inning, and a single touching off the winning rally in the ninth as the Expos nipped Houston 4-3. Elsewhere in the National League, St. Louis opened its East Division lead to \l/i games by defeating Los Angeles 5-3 while second-place Philadelphia was losing 3-2 in ll innings to Atlanta. The Dodgers maintained their 5 game lead in the West when second-place Cincinnati J dropped a 4-1 decision to the New York Mets.

Simmons connected on the first pitch from Geoff Zahn after the Dodger rookie had walked Joe Torre to load the bases. “I was just looking for a strike,” said Simmons, who celebrated his 25th birthday Friday. “I just told myself he was going to have to get the ball over the plate because he couldn’t walk anybody else with the tying run at third.
