Norm Gray coasted after first nine Gray triumphs Norm Gray of Calgary won the 1974 Country Club invitational tournament over the weekend. Kruzers host jeep rally By PAT SULLIVAN HtraM Sptrts EdiUr "Always a bridesmaid, never a Look out 1975. Gene Outhouse must be wondering what he has to do to win a Country Club In- vitational golf tournament. For the second -time in as many years Outhouse, of High River, has had to settle for se- cond best. Last year he had to take se- cond bows to Joe Tombs of Great Falls.This time around it was to Norm Gray of Calgary. .Jt's oiie of those things when you play Gray, or any player of his capability, you just don't give him "an edge. Gray had things his own way in the championship flight final as he turned the corner after nine holes, four shots up on Outhouse." As Gray put it, ''I felt very good, shots were just working for me." They worked just, too often for Outhouse who fell 3 and 1 to the new Country Club In- vitational champ. Both Gray and Outhouse had their hands full advancing to the championship flight. Gray bested Randy Andreachuk of Lethbridge in one semi-final while Outhouse had to send veteran Bill Town- send to the sidelines on the last hole of their match. In earlier games Gray downed Don MacKenzie and Durant James while Outhouse chalked up wins over ferry Kimrhel and Dave Gowland: in reaching the primary final, won out over Bob Myroniuk and Bill Kar- bashewski. Andreachuk, on the other bested Ron MacKenzie and Mike Bower. All was not lost for Bower, who seems to make a habit of taking home silverware from the Country Club. Bower won the cham- pionship consolation title after going an extra hole with Kar- bashewski. Bower was one-up RESULTS Second Mark MacKenzie over Tom Boutton. Consolation Tom Hunt.

It took Bower just one extra hole to settle things however. Bob McDonald of the city won the first flight in a chipoff with Otto Riedlhuber of Henderson Lake. McDon'ald had earlier sidelined Ken MacKenzie of Waterton Lakes while Riedlhuber 'ousted Ron MacKenzie. In the consolation final of the first flight Myroniuk was AWPY CAPP the victor in a nine-hole match with Doug Howes. Myroniuk got past Gowland in one semi-final .encounter while Howes upended Durant James in another. One of the more popular vic- tories of the final afternoon of the three-day tourney had to be James' triumph in the horse race. Facing a field of nine of the top golfers entered in the tourney James, of Magrath, survived a struggle with' Kimmell that went two extra holes. given very little chance at the start of proceedings, failed to wilt un- jder the pressure of KimmeU's smooth game and downed the Calgary shotmaker with a bir- die on ine second extra hole. James said later it was his first look at pressure. "I play in the Magrath he said. "But it just isn't the same thing." Richard Andreachuk finished third in the horse race. CHIP SHOTS Durant James wasn't kidding when be referred to pressure he hadn't felt before In a chipoff oh the second last hole he edged Richard Andreachuk by a "mere three inches Logan Tait. speaking of chip shots. canned his chip shot on the --ninth hole to force an extra hole against Bill Broadfoot... Tail's chip-in was for an eight -and he went on to win No one can figure out why Bill Henderson was upset at Tail's victory Henderson, who says he's an 11-handicap, shot a sweet 8! in two matches Monday It will be another year before pro Ed Englehardt and club manager Don Lymburner get a chance to take a bow. for an excellent tournament, so gentlemen take a big bow now. THE A GOOD TIMES FOR V: WHAT AM I WHAT A TIME THAT HEW.'...AN TKEN BEFORE I MET 'IM.'V Stamps' rookie quarterback saw a lot of green and gold EDMONTON (CPKRookie quarterback Joe Pisarcik of Calgary Stampeders got a rough welcome into the Western Football Conference Monday, night as the Stampeders were defeated 20- 6 by Edmonton Eskimos." Pisarcik, a 6-4 import from New. Mexico State, not only had to contend with a rugged Edmonton defence, but he also had to put up with a severe lightning and- rain storm that drenched the spectators at Clarke Stadium and made handling the ball difficult. The rangy rookie was press-, ed info service late in first_ .quarter when starting7 quarterback Pete "Liske suf- fered a hip injury when he was "sacked after completing a pass. Pisarcik had trouble getting the Calgary offence moving until the fourth quarter, and when he finally did, he ran into an Edmonton pass rush that wrecked two Calgary offensive drives in.Edmonton territory. "It's tough to keep saying that we are not'doing badly when we're not Cal- gary coach Jim Wood said after the game, Calgary's third loss in three outings this season. "But we're not doing that badly, especially with three rookie defensive backs and a rookie quarterback who played nine-tenths of the game.'' The Eskimos, now 2-0, never trailed as the defensive squad gave the club an early lift. Calgary running baric Rick Galbos fumbled on the first series 'of plays and Ed- monton defensive back Dick Dupuis scooped up the loose ball and ran 65 yards "for a touchdown with less than two minutes gone in the game. Edmonton quarterback Tom Wilkinson ran for an eight- yard touchdown in the second quarter for the other Ed- monton major. Dave, Cutler made one of- two convert attempts and kicked fourth- quarter field goals from the 49 and 37, while punter Garry- Lefebvre added a 51-yard single. Calgary Vscoring was pro- vided by Larry-Robinson on of. 11'and 42 yards. connected on 17 of pass attempts for 217 yards, but most, of the yardage was picked Calgary territory and in Edmonton territory- near the midfieUMine: .The. strong-armed rookie was wild when he first replac- ed LisXe. but regained his composure by the fourth quarter. But at that point the Edmonton defence toughened up. Pisarcik and Wilkinson each threw one interception and the Edmonton defence sacked Liske and Pisarcik for 35 yards in losses. Wilkinson completed nine of 16 for 107 yards. Edmonton's Roy Bell was the leading rusher in the game with 112 yards in 23 carries. Calgary officials said.they hoped Liske would be ready for the teamjs next game in nine days. The lightning knocked out the lights at Clarke Stadium for 10 minutes during half- time, causing a slight delay in the beginning of the second haif.
