But it has not been easy. "I'll never make it through the season like this." declared Coach Jake Gotta after his Americans pulled out a 28-22 victory over Detroit Wheels Wednesday night. "Unless you were here and saw it, you wouldn't believe it." Gotta's Americans fell behind 22-20 with just one minute to play when Detroit's Bubba Wye he hit Jon Henderson with an 18-yard touchdown pass. But Bir- mingham quarterback Matt Reed, a strong-arrned rookie out of Grambling. immediate- ly went to work. He connected on passes of 14 and 19 yards to Dennis Roman, ran nine yards himself and then, with just 26 seconds left, hit Al Jenkins in the end zone with a 17-yarder. "I don't see how we can go on like this." said Gotta. The Americans have won all five games they've played by a combined margin of just 41 points. Elsewhere in the WFL, Windsor faces Thunder Bav THUNDER BAY Windsor South Canadians scored a 3-2 win in 12 innings over Calgary Centennials Wednesday to move into a final in the Canadian Little League baseball senior division against Thunder Bay Nationals. Meanwhile in Brandon, Moose Jaw defeated Ed- monton 3-1 Wednesday to win the right to play Lethbridge in the final of the Little League baseball Prairie Division championship. The Moose Jaw squad will have to defeat Lethbridge twice, however, if it wants to advance to the national final which opens Monday in Toron- to. Lethbridge is undefeated in the double-knockout event. Philadelphia Bell whipped Memphis Southmen 46-15: Florida Blazers doused Chicago Fire 46-21; New York Stars edged Southern California Sun 11-8; and Port- land Storm struggled to a 15-15 tie with Houston Texans. The Hawaiians are at Jack- sonville tonight. Birmingham, in addition to keeping its unbeaten record intact, also took attendance honors. The Americans an- nounced a paid crowd of 40.367. Reed, a 6-foot-4, 225- pounder. accounted for the other two Americans TDs, running two yards for one and hitting Jenkins with a pass from 39 yards out for the other. Detroit Coach Dan Boisture, whose club now is 0-5, was philosophical. 'We had some short- he admitted. "Our offence was not too sharp. We played good at times but it wasn't good enough to win." Games officially opened Mrs. Claudette Halladay of Fort Macleod officially opened the 1974 Southern Alberta Summer Games by lighting the Games' flame at Fort Macleod Tuesday morning. Some athletes Southern Alberta Games gets into full swing are scheduled to participate in the 5th annual event which con- cludes Saturday. Deep concentration Scott MacLean of Fort Macleod is only concentrating on hitting the on-coming tennis ball back over the net.

By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer After a slow start, the Fifth Annual Southern Alberta Summer Games got into full swing Wednesday, and things are not expected to slow down in Fort Macleod until the last event is completed and the Games' flame doused sometime Saturday evening. The parade and opening ceremonies were held up yesterday morning when a heavy fog delayed the arrival of the County of Warner delegation. But things soon picked up, as a large crowd was on hand to witness the official opening ceremonies, and then com- petition in five of the twelve Games' sports got underway. The trapshooting event was run off in its entirety Wednesday, with action in track and field, competitive swimming, tennis and slow- pitch also starting off. Track and field and com- petitive swimming will be completed today, with tennis and slow pitch running right through until Saturday. The golfers will take to the fairways today in the first of three days of shotmaking, while two-day competitions in archery and equestrian begin on Friday. Cyclists will see action on Friday as well, while horseshoes, synchronized swimming and small bore events will take place on Saturday. The Honorable Horst Schmid, provincial Minister of Culture, Youth, and Recreation, almost stole Wednesday's spotlight away from the athletes themselves when he took the stand to of- ficially open the 1974 Games immediately following the morning parade. He presented Vera Ferguson, Vice-President of the 1975 Jeux Canada Games, with a cheque for from the provincial government. Schmid was promptly rewarded with a kiss" and explained that the donation was the culmination of support to the Winter Games from the provincial government. He went on to briefly trace the history of the Southern Alberta Summer Games, emphasizing the mass par- ticipation which has made the Games the major sporting event in Southern Alberta. At the first Games in Pincher Creek, 1200 athletes took part, but Schmid noted that there will be over 2500 competitors in Fort Macleod this year. He said that the Games are a fitting memorial to the pioneers who opened up the town 100 years ago. This is Fort Macleod's Centennial year, and the Summer Games is one of the major events that the town has scheduled to celebrate its 100th birthday. Schmid went on to stress the participative, as opposed to the competitive, aspect of the Broncos sign Darcy Regier Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League today announced the signing of Darcy Regier of Herbert, Sask. Regier, a strapping six foot. 180 pounder, is 18 years of age and has two years of eligibility left. According to Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield Regier was being sought after by the University of North Dakota. However, the chance to play hockey in the WCHL and attend the University of Lethbridge swayed Regier's decision, much to the delight of Bronco officials. Ingarfield says that Regier is loaded with potential. He was an all star defenceman in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League last year while performing for the Prince Alberta Raiders. Taber takes Beaver title The Taber Chiefs racked up four straight victories over the weekend to take the Beaver A Alberta Baseball championship and advance to the 4-West Provinces playoffs August 15-17 at Kennedy Delta, B.C. The Chiefs beat Peace River twice, 10-0 and 15-8, and downed Amisk 13-1 and Indus 13-8 to take the five-team modified double-knockout tournament. Should the Chiefs, who have now gone 32 games without a loss, win the 4-West cham- pionship, they will travel to Sydney, Nova Scotia for the Canadian Beaver cham- pionships on the Labor Day weekend. Games, and suggested that they have become a modei for all of Alberta, as is evidenced by the upcoming First Annual Games in Calgary. To conclude his address, he declared the Games officially open, and called upon Mrs. Claudette Halladay to light the Games' flame. After the dignitaries had their say, however, the rest of the day belonged to the athletes. Defending champion County of Warner took top honors in the trapshooting event, the only event to be completed in the opening day of com- petition. County of Warner also broke out to an early lead in track and field events, racking up 219 points at the half-way mark of the two-day com- petition. County of Forty Mile was second with 198 points at day's end while the Municipal District of Willow Creek had 146 points. Willow Creek could claim a sizeable lead in the swimming events as that contingent amassed 170 points, putting them 41 points ahead of the County of Warner and the M.D. of Cardston, who were deadlocked in second place with 129 points each. Other first day action saw the County of Forty Mile take the gold medal in junior women's slow pitch. The County of Lethbridge went home with the silver while Warner picked up the bronze. The tennis events run Wednesday were to be com- pleted today. Listings of in- dividual winners in all events will run in Friday's Herald.
