Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE lETIIBRIDGE HERAID Monday. Aueiuil 10. 1970 Saskatchewan Wins Third Straight Reed Runs Ti-Cats Into Turf REED was almost a one-man show in defence to lead the Roughies to a 23-22 victory in Cana- Hdmilt-on Saturday evening as George Reed (34) of the dian Football League action. Reed, who carried 36 times, Saskatchewan Roughriders ripped holes in the Tiger Cats is shown running over and away from four Ti-Cats. Parker Goes With Same Line-Up Stampeders Make Few Changes CALGARY (CP) Calgary Stampeders, suffering from early season injuries; and Brit- ish Columbia Lions tangle to- night in a bid for second place in the Western Football Confer- ence. B.C. coach Jackie Parker says the liens have "only a couple of minor hurts" and will start the same lineup that beat Winnipeg Blue Bombers 48-21 last week. "You hesitate to make a Beikin Retains Tennis Title TORONTO (CP) Mike Beikin of Montreal Sunday re- tained his Canadian closed ten- nis title when John Sharpc of Toronto was forced to withdraw because of foot blisters. Beikin lost the first set 6-3 but easily captured the second 6-0 as the blisters, which had both- ered Sharpe all week, began to tell. Belfcin stalled the second set with a win after Sb'arpe car- ried him to deuce four times. He then broke Sharpe's service in the second and fourth garnes and pumped two aces by him in each of the third and fifth garnes. After Beikin broke his service again in the sixth, Sharpe came to the net and told him: "I can hardly walk." Beikin, who had trouble with his net game during the first set said Sharpe "had the edge on me and probably would have won if his foot was O.K. "I was getting tired anyway." Sharpe, in trying to conserve his feet for the third set, didn't chase the Beikin volleys which were beginning to nick the baekcourt corners.

Saskatchewan is on top of the league with three wins in three starts. The Oalgary defensive squad will be without end Craig Koin- an, who is expected out for 10 days with a dislocated elbow. Tackle GranvHle Liggins is a doubtful starter because of a groin injury.

(AP) Australia's Tony Koche spoiled countryman Rod Laver's 32nd birthday by ending the world tennis king's reign as United States professional champion Sunday with a stunning 3-6, 1-0, 6-2, 6-2 victory at Longwood. Laver appeared on route to his fifth straight U.S. pro title and sixth in seven years after three sets, but Roche came back strongly after a 15-minute rest and made a shambles of Laver's service with a tremen- dous performance. The 25-year-old Roche became only the second player to gain a lifetime edge over Laver. It was WRESTLING TONIGHT! P.M. EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM N.A. CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Abdullah The ButchQr vs Dnve Ruhl plus 5 Big Bouts Roche's seventh victory in 13 meetings between the two. Is- mail El Shafei of lire United Arab Republic has won two of three matches with Laver. Roche shocked Laver and a packed crowd of with his fantastic comeback which won the first prize in the week-long tournament. Laver and Aussie Hoy Emer- son won the doubles with a 6-1, 7-6 victory over El Shafei and Torben Ulrich of Denmark. Uon after missing much of the last two games with tram knee ligaments. The Lions, who have dropped their last 12 games with Calgary, "have come a long way from last Par- ker said, "but we have to get better to win consistently." Quarterback Paul Brothers has improved and gave the team some good performances, despite a few jeers from the fans. GETS GLORY. BOOS "The quarterback is the man who makes it Parker said, but he is also the player who re- ceives boos when others miss their assignments. After the win Winnipeg, Brothers said: "We needed a big victory like that to give us confidence. This is a good team ajid we'll prove it." Tile Lions have received good performances from rookies John a defensive tackle, and middle linebacker George Jugum, Parker said'. Jugum, at 225 pounds, is a lit- tle smaller than most middle linebackers but he is mobile against ground attacks and puts good pressure on passing quart- erbacks, Parker said. Calgary coach Jim Duncan plans to shuffle his offensive line to improve the blocking, which he partially blames for the team's ineffectual running attack. "You can't run if you don't get good blocking and we're not getting good blacking." Stampeders also have a new running back, Billy Main who was recently cut by Pittsburgh Steclers of the National Football League. He is on a five-day trial but is not expected to see action tonight. WIN'S MEDAL SOUTH MARCH, Ont. (CP) A 40-year-old sergeant of the Royal 22nd Regiment, Valcar- tier, Que., Sunday continued the pace set Saturday by his unit tnd walked away with the Queen's Medal at the 88th an- nual Dominion of Canada Rifle Association matches at Con- naught Ranges. HAMILTON (CP) George Reed desmided on Hamilton Saturday night and Saskatche- wan Roughriders burst the Ti- ger-Cat bubble, scraping a 23-22 win in the season's first Cana- dian Football League interlock- ing game played before fans. The victory was Saskatche- wan's first in Hamilton's Civic Stadium since the interlocking schedule stalled in 1962, and the 'Riders hadn't defeated the Ti- cals anywhere since 1967. Reed, deceptively strong at 205 pounds, crashed through Hie usually brutal Hamilton defen- sive line with such ease that Ticat coacvi Joe Restic admitted after the game the Westerners had found a weak spot in what many considered one of the toughest defensive units in the country. Restic said the Ticals were using small middle linebackers and after the fust quarter the Western Football Conference visitors simply outran roeuvml them, shooting two big tight ends to help clear the way for! Reed. OUTPLAYED O.U1! j The 'Rider fullback, who in! 19GSI became the first WFC rusher to clear yards a season for six successive years, handled the ball 36 than the entire Hamilton club did in the 34 rushes for 199 yards. He also scored the Roughriders' first touchdown. But despite Reed's efforts and Saskatchewan's domination of play, it took a 91-yard pass- and-nm play from quaitcrback Ron Lancaster to speedster Silas McKinney to decide Uie issue. McKinney, used sparingly in Ills usually effective running role, duped his way into the clear past Hamilton's Carney Henley midway through the final quarter before taking Lan- caster's pass in full flight and leaving his pursuers behind. Lancaster scored the other Saskatchewan touchdown from one-yard out while Jack Abend- schan booted a 24-yard field goal and two converts. Ed Buchanan was Hamilton's most effective weapon when the Ticats could get hold of the ball (they used only 34 offensive plays in the He rolled up 105 yards on eight carries, including a 77-yard touchdown romp, and took four Joe Zuger passes for 50 yards. The man who was expected to set a CFL career scoring mark, Tommy Joe Coffey, missed by two.points. He entered the game with 745 points, five behind Jackie Parker, current coach of the WFC's British Columbia Lions who ended his career with 750. But Coffey was held ,to just points, converting touch- downs by B u c h a n a n, John Mancl and Bill Stair and kick- ing a single on a 47-yard field goal attempt that'went wide. Despite their lack of offence, the Ticats built a 15-0 lead hi the first quarter on Coffey's sin- gle, B u c h a n a n's run from scrimmage, and a weird play that gave Manel his first profes- sional touchdown. The third-string Hamilton quarterback, behind Zuger and John Eckman, was leading Hamilton tacklers following a Zuger punt when Saskatche- wan's Steve Molnar misplayed tha ball. It bounced off his foot into the Hamilton player's hands. Mancl took the ball in stride and ran 21 yards for his six points. Despite bruising play by both team s, only Saskatchewan's Bobby Thompson was injured seriously enough to put him on the sideline. Coach Eagle Keys said the injury minor, but likely would keep Thompson out of the Roughriders' next game, Tuesday night in Ottawa against the Rough Riders. Although the score was close, Saskatchewan dominated statis- tics with 24 first downs to Ihc Ticats' nine, 226 yards rushing to Hamilton's 168, and 204 yards passing to 101. Saskatchewan's defensive unit broke into Hamilton's offensive backfield to throw Zugci' for 41 yards in losses, compared to the six yards lost by Lancaster, giv- ing the 'Riders a total offence of yards to Hamilton's 223. Lancaster, despite earlier re- ports of an ailing arm, com- pleted 16 of 24 passes while Zuger was successful or. 10 of 14. The victory was Saskatche- wan's third in a row, following wins over B.C. and Edmonton Eskimos. The Ticats, in their second outing of the season, won their opener over Ottawa. T'ivo-8 Irokc Margin Beard Takes Classic AKRON, Ohio (AP) Frank Beard took a look ahead to this week's Professional Golfers' As- sociation national championship after picking off Uie first prize Suiiday in the American Golf Classic. the soft spoken techni- cian said, "I've never won two consecutive tournaments. "I've come close, but I've never won two in a row." Beard, who almost didn't come to Akron for the event, fired a conservative 71. one-over par, on the demanding Firestone layout the final round. He had 27G strokes, two fewer than Jack N i c k 1 a u s, Bruce Crampton and Tommy Aaron who earned each. Toronto's George K h u d s o n fired a 67 Sunday, lowest score of the day and wound up at 282. He earned the players who had a chance to challenge Beard, only Niclclaus could break par. He had a 69. Crampton took a 71 and Aaron finished at 72. George Archer, leader through the first two rounds, had a 73 and was alone at 279. Tom Shaw, tied with Beard for the No. 1 position going into the final round, was two over par on his flrst three holes and wound up at 75 for 280. Defend- ing champion Ray Floyd had a 75. The victory was the 10th of his career and second of the season for Beard, who didn't ar- rive until Wednesday night, just hours before the tournament's start, because he and his wife became Uie parents of their fourth child a day earlier. "I really didn't decide to come until the baby was born and I knew everything was all right at home. Actually, it was my mother who urged me to come." Lombardi's Condition Listed Fair WASHINGTON (AP) A spokesman at Georgetown Uni- versity Hospital said Sunday night the condition of. Vince 58, Washington Red- skins football coach, was listed as fair. The spokesman also said Lombardi's condition was un- changed. A team spokesman, mean- while, said Lombard! was rest- ing comfortably. Lombard! underwent surgery in late June and it was reported that doctors removed a tumor from his intestinal tract. Doc- tors described it as a noh-malig- nant-growth. Lombard! re-entered the hos- pital a month later for a second operation. Neither the Redskins nor the hospital will disclose the reasons for the second sur- gery.

He is the first Briton to make the double channel swim. Murphy's time for the swim to France was ]5 hours 35 min- utes.
