Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHBR1DGE HERAID Saturday, 1, 1970 Interceptions Led To Edmonton Downfall Riders Have Their Problems With Eskimos REGINA (CP) Jack Abend- schan, the 27-year-old offensive guard who makes a speciality of field-goal kicking, booted him- self into the record books in leading Saskatchewan Koughri- ders to a 23-11 win Friday night over Edmonton Eskimos. His five field goals in a single game tied a Canadian football league record set in 1959 by Jackie Parker of Edmonton Es- kimos and equalled twice by Ted Gcrela of British Columbia Lions, who performed the feat in 1967 and 1968. Abendschan, a graduate oE the University of New Mexico who has been a Hoiiglirider stalwart for the last six seasons, also scored a single on a wide field goal try and converted the only touchdown of the game, a George Heed effort. For Edmonton, who held an 8-7 lead after the opening of the second half, the outcome was a disappointment that became, in- evitable only in the dying min- utes of the game when Saskat- chewan made a sixth pass inter- ception to snuff out a scoring Jireat.

Phone 357-1566 Raymond, who took over as coach of the club in suburban Los Angeles five years ago, says his swimmers, with two exceptions, "ar.e not yet mature enough" to beat the top-ranking international competitors en- tered in the five-day champion- ships. Raymond has 12 swimmer's competing here.including Cana- dians Eric Fish of Medicine Hat, Alta., and Ralph Stanislaw of Toronto. Fish won the bronze medal in the 100-metre back- stroke in the recent Common- wealth Games in Edinburgh. Raymond says Fish, who has the second fastest qualifying time in the backstroke, is his club's top medal hope. "Our swimmers probably aren't going to take any gold, silver or bronze Ray- mond said, "but we'll be in the top eighth." Shaun Roney, a IS-year'-old freestyler attempting to qualify for the U.S. Nationals, has rec- orded times second only to those of Angela Coughlin of Bur- lington, Ont., in the 400-metre, but "she's not yet mature enough to beat your Canadian champion." Miss Honey needs a time of to qualify for the U.S. event, and last week reached 4.54. "If she makes the Raymond predicted, "she'll be giving Angela quite a race." Raymond was pleased with the fourth-place finish of 16- year-old Craig Taylor in the slow heats of the men's 1500- metre freestyle Friday night. Taylor finished to his fastest time ever for the dist ance. Boss Nelson of Jasper, Alta., won the heat in with team-mate Mike Manning 2.6 seconds behind.

Winners of the slow heats will not compete in the finals, but their times will be included in the final platings. The two win- ners' times were well off the qualifying pace set by Miss Coughlan and Steve Roxborough of Vancouver. MEN... Look years younger with a Reid Meredith Inc.

(AP) A stock car sped cut of control at Spencer Speedway late Fri- day night, hurtled into the top row of a crowded grandstand and killed four persons and in- jured IB, several seriously. Three persons lost their lives at the track near this commun- ity, about 3 miles east of Roch- ester. The fourth died today in hospital at nearby Sodus. The cause of the accident was not determined, but the Wayne County sheriff's office said it three field goals and two sin- gles, one on a kickoff that Silas McKinnie was unable to run out of the end zone at the second half's start, when he collided with three hard-rushing Eskimo defenders. Tile Edmonton defence, tough- est in the CFL last year, held Ron Lancaster's passing game to eight completions in 15 tries for 103 yards gained, but couldn't prevent the likes of Reed, McKinnie and Bobby Thompson from gaining 275 yards on the ground. MADE 13 PASSES Eskimos, newcomers Rusty Clark and Don Trull shar- ing the signal-calling duties, went all the way through the air, with a total 13 pass comple- tions in 38 attempts for 173 yards gained, and a miserable seven yards credit on the ground. The win, Saskatchewan's sec- ond in as many regular season games, was partial revenge for a 25-21 loss that Roughriders suffered in an exhibition game last week in Edmonton. The game, played before fans, was the season opener for the Eskimos. "It was a hard-hitting coach Eagle Keys said later. The Saskatchewan backfield played well, he said, with Reed travelling 125 yards on 25 car- ries for the big punch. Tight end Nolan Bailey led the Saskatche- wan pass catchers with two for 35 yards. But it was the interceptions that made for the biggest ex- citement, with Al Ford and Bob Kosid spearing two each while Ted Dushinski and Wayne Shaw each grabbed one for Saskatche- wan.

Witnesses of crash, at Speedway in this Wayne County village, said the car hit the rear of the vehicle in front of it, struck a restrain- ing wall and plunged into the stands. "It just climbed up over the fence and just kept said William a specta- tor. "I could have touched it." The car hurtled the first three rows in the grandstand and smashed into the top five rows. Shaver, who said he sat in the second row, said the car flew over his head. Track officials said they be- lieve the accident was caused by a stuck gas pedal. The driver, Gary Cornelius of the nearby village of Ontario, was pulled unconscious from the car. i The accident occurred in the i final race of the night, a 21-lap event on the half-mile track. Cornelius's car sped out of con- trol as it rounded a curve dur- ing the seventh lap. team just couldn't win with a seven-yard rushing attack, all ol which was pounded out by Leroy Sledge. Abendschan pulled a muscle in his right shoulder during the second half and turned his line- playing duties over to Gary Brandt, returning to action only for place-kicking assignments. Later he said the shoulder was not serious. ANDY CAPP CWR LIKE ME NEW WIG, PAM? I THINK I'LL GETONE F1 MESEUK IT'SAPITYTHcV CAN'S" MANUFACTURE AN ARTIFICIAL BRAIN; COR SLIMEV, IT MAKES VER J. WONbEE. DOESN'T CFL Chief Not Worried TORONTO (CP) Jake Gau- daur, Canadian Football League commissioner, said today he is not worried by predictions from some United States football offi-. dais that a player strike could I cancel the 1970 National Foot- ball League schedule. Asked for comment on the possibility of such a prolonged strike affecting CFL operations, Gaudaur said "it's totally un- realistic" to assume that the strike will continue through the season. "Both sides badly need each other and I think this is the basis for their, getting together again to resolve this dispute." The NFL Players Association voted Wednesday night to go on strike to support demands for improved pension benefits. Most veteran players are refusing to feport to training camps. Gaudaur said there was little likelihood of a flood of U.S. players looking for jobs in the CFL should the strike continue because most are under con- tract or their U.S. clubs have options on them that would pre- vent their playing here.
