Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Four Da Event Success ANDY CAPP Frldoy, August 14, 1770 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD 9 Curtain Rings Down On Summer G By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer PINCHER CREEK Everyone was in full agree- ment, il was indeed a history- making event. The town of Pinclier Creek, in the foothills of southern Al- berta some (X) miles west of Lcthbridgc, played host to the first-ever Southern Alberta Summer Games and the end results have left south Alber- lans, young ana old, reeling. They said it couldn't be done, but it was done. The people of Pincher Creek and the Games committee made believers of those who doubted. A summer games in a com- munity in Southern Alberta? It's never been tried anywhere in Canada on such a is it possibly going to be a success? Questions such as these were the rule rather than the ex- ception when it was announced that for four days in the middle of August Pincher Creek would play host to the largest gather- ing of athletes ever brought together in southern Alberta. Those who termed the venture preposterous were not long in changing their minds. Some south Albertans, many who had never been in competition before the trials A HAPPY DIRECTOR Tom Karren, left, is all smiles" that was declared the winner of the regional honors as as he receives congratulations from Southern Alberta the Games wound up Thursday evening.

The hard-throwing Washing- ton Senator's right bander mowed down the Twins on a bunt Tovar's lead- off handing the Western Division leaders then' sixth loss in succession Thursday night, a 1-0 beating. Minnesota's once- comfortable lead stayed a t five games over Oakland Athletr ics as the A's lost 4-3 to Cleve- land Indians. Bosnian, a husky 6-foot-3, issued a walk to opposing pitcher Jim Kaat in the sixth, after retiring 15 straight Twins, then got Tovar on a double play bouncer before retiring Minnesota the rest of the way, facing only 28 batters, one over the minimum. Bosman, 12-8 currently, was 14-5 last year with aa American League 2.15. leading ERA of SINGLE DID IT Bosnian, lowering his 1970 ERA to 3.02, got the only run he needed in the first inning when JACK'S PLUMBfNG SERVES For Estimates Phone JACK FULLER 328-2515 Wayne Comer bunted for a sin- gle and went to third on Har- mon Killebrew's wild throw. Hick Reichart's grounder got the run sending Kaat, who issued only five hits to his ninth loss against 10 triumphs. In other AL games, California Angels nipped Baltimore Orioles 3-2, Milwaukee Brewers edged Texan Takes Halfway Lead OTTAWA (CP) Texan John Mahaffey played it calm and cool Thursday to take the half- way lead at the Canadian ama- teur golf championship. The 22-year-old San Antonio swinger came in with his second straight 69, four under par, for an eight-tinder total of 138 after 36 holes. Allen Miller of Pensacola, Fla., the first-round leader with a 66, sagged to an even-par 73 Thursday but the 139 was good enough to hold Mm in second place. Doug Roxburgh, the Vancou- ver 18-year-old, was 72 Thurs- day after an opening 68 and bunched in a tie for third at 140 with Don Klenk of Medinah, 111., and Hobert Zender of Skokie, 111. Former amateur champs Keith Alexander of Calgary and Gary Cowan of Kitchener were in a five-player group at 141 with S'tu Hamilton of Bramptoii, WINDSHIELDS BROKEN?

There was no repetition of the belting the top golfers in the 167-man field handed the yard Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club course in the opening round. Both pin and tee placements were tougher Thursday and the wind, just about non-existent Wednesday, was blowing into the golfers' faces on just about every long hole. But the calibre of the field gathered for the 66th national amateur, the best ever in the view of Royal Canadian Golf Association officials, showed up as well. It took a 149 score to stay alive as the competition was cut to 66 golfers and such perennials as Nick Weslocfc of Brantford, Ont., a four-time winner, and John Johnston of Vancouver, the 1959 champ, didn't make it. Mahaffey, who just graduated this spring after majoring in psychology but says "it doesn't work on the had his driver and putter both going well. "I don't think I missed a fairway." Brougliton Wins HALIFAX (CP) Gary Broughton of Brantford, Ont., won the Canadian middleweight boxing championship here Thursday night, dethroning Dave Downey of Halifax with a ninth-round knockout. Detroit Tigers 3-2, Milwaukee Brewers edged Detroit Tigers 3-2, Kansas City Royals slugged Boston 31-3 and the New York Yankees topped Chicago White Sox 4-3. Sam McDowell, 17-7, struck out nine and gave up three hits in stopping the A's winning streak at five games. Johnny Bench, Cincinnati Reds catcher and home run leader in the major leagues at present, is closing on Ray Cam- panella's 1953 record of most homers by a catcher in one sea- son. But it's not as simple as that. Bench1, with 40 round-trippers, is only one shy of Campy's mark. But only 33'of Bench's big bells came in games when he worked as a catcher. He nailed four of them as a left fielder, and one each in games when he was playing centre field, right field and first base.v Officials say only the 33 are being counted in his quest for the record held by the former Brooklyn Dodger great. Bench smacked a two-run shot in .the fourth inning Thurs- day night and Lee May and Tony Perez added solo blasts as Cincinnati overwhelmed the New York Mete 6-1 to give Jim Merritt his 17th victoiy of the year. The record apparently is not uppermost in Bench's mind. "Sure I'm thinking about ho- he said after Thursday's game. "But the CampaneUa record is the last tiling on my mind. "I started the season hoping I'd hit 30 and, as things are going now, I'd like to hit 50. But I'm also looking for hits that can help the ball Bench said. EXPOS LOSE In Thursday night's other Na- tional League action, Houston Astros surprised Philadelphia Phillies 4-3, San Diego Padres outlasted SI. Louis Cardinals 9- 7, Atlanta Braves topped Mont- real Expos 4-1, and, in an after- noon contest, tlKi Chicago Cubs beat San Francisco Giants 6-3.

Phont 327-5406 for berths in the games finals >egan, were on hand when the Games torch was lit Monday norning and many were on land when the gold, silver and jronze medals were being jassed out Thursday. From 10 regions including !i u counties of Lcthbridge, Warner and Forty Mile, the Municipal Districts of Willow Creek, C a r d s t o n, Pincher Creek and Taber, the Blood and Peigan Reserves, the City of Lethbridge and (he Crowsnest Pass, they came and when the dust had settled it was the Mu- nicipal District of Cardston who reigned as champions of Jie first ever Summer Games. Regional director for Card- ston, Tom Karren, was beam- ing as the official Southern Al- ierta Summer Games flag was presented to his region. Games committee chairman Fred Lip- ;key presented the flag. Cardston emerged with the spoils after accumulating 96 points from the eight events. Their total was 5.5 points bet- ter than the County of Warner and 12.5 points better than the City of Lethbridge. A point system was used at the Games with 10 points allot- ed for a victory, nine for sec- ond place, eight for third and so on down the line. FIRST FLAG In earning the first cham- pionship flag the Cardston con- tingent gained the maximum 10 points in the male division of track and field, the female section of the slow pitch com- petitions and horseshoes. They picked up nine points in arch- ery and trap shooting while eight points came their way in the female portion of track and field, diving and equestrian. They gained 8.5 points in male section of slow pitch, 7.5 in male swimming, and four in small bore and female swim- ming. Rounding out the way they finished over all after the City of Lethbridge came Municipal District of Willow Creek with Pincher Creek finishing fifth. Taber followed while County of Lethbridge was next. County of Forty Mile was just behind Lethbridge with Crowsnest Pass and Blood and Peigan Re- serves trailing. In Thursday's slow pitch ac- tion the men's finals were run off with Warner winning the gold medal after downing the host Pincher Creek club 10-8 in the final. Pincher earned the silver medal with the bronze going to City of Lethbridge. Southern Alberta's initial Summer Games are gone but not forgotten. The hard-work- ing committee and the people of Pincher Creek have laid the groundworks for bigger and better games in the future. The blueprints for the Games were easy to follow, co-opera- tion, mass participation and entertain ment. At Pincher Creek it was three for three, not a bad average at all. Bids have been received from at least two interested re- gions for next summer's games. Willow Creek and Cardston have indicated they are interested and more bids are expected. It was also thought a Winter Games could be held. The host could very easily be Municipal District of Taber. All is quiet in Pincher Creek today but it will be a long time before the people of this com- munity forget their first Sum- mer Games. DIVINS FINALS Boys 10 and Under 1.
