Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 14, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Four Day Event Termed. Outstanding Success Curtain Rings Down On Summer By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer PINCHER CREEK Everyone was in full agree- ment, it was indeed a history- making event. The town of Pincher Creek, in the foothills of southern Al- berta some CO miles west of Lcthbridge. played host to the first-ever Southern Alberta Summer Games and the end results have left soulli Alber- tans, 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 Ihe Games wound up Thursday evening.

The hard-throwing Washing- ton Senator's right bander mowed down the Twins on a bunt Tqvar's lead- off handing the Western Division leaders their sixth loss in succession Thursday night, a 1-0 beating. Minnesota's once- comfortable lead stayed a t five games over Oakland Athlet> ics as the A's lost 4-3 to Cleve- land Indians. Bosnian, a husky 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, issued a walk to opposing pitcher Jim Kaat in the sixth, after retiring 16 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. Bosnian, 12-8 currently, was 14-5 last year with an American League leading ERA of 2.15. SINGLE DID IT Bosnian, lowering Ms 1970 ERA to 3.02, got the only run he needed in the first inning when Wayne Comer bunted for a sin- gle and went to third on Har- mon Killebrew's wild throw. Hick Heichart's grounder got the run in, sending Kaat, who JACK'S PLUMBSNG SERVES LETHBRIDGE For Estimates Phone JACK FULLER 328-2515 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-under 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 him 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 Robert 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 Stu Hamilton of Brampton, 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 Wednesday, about non-existent 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 tire view of Eoyal 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 Weslock 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 11-3 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 ganies. Johnny Bench, Cincinnati Reds catcher and home run leader in the major leagues at present, is closing on Hay 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 belts cante in games when he worked as a catcher. He nailed four of them as a lefi fielder, and one each in games when he was playing centre field, right field and first base., 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 an mind. "I started the season hoping I'd hit 30 and, as things are going now, I'd like to hit 50. Bu I'm also looking for hits tha can help the ball Bencl said. EXPOS LOSE In Thursday night's other Na tional League action, Houston Astros surprised Philadelphia Phillies 4-3, San Diego Padres outlasted St. Louis Cardinals 9 7, Atlanta Braves topped Mom real Expos 4-1, and, in an after noon contest, the Chicago Cubs beat San Francisco Giants 6-3.

From 10 regions including he counties of Lethbridge, Varner and Forty Mile, the lunicipiil Districts of Willow G a r d s t o n, Pincher )reek and Taber, Uie Blood and 'eigan Reserves, the City of Lethbridge and the Crowsnesl 'ass, they came and when the lust had settled it was the Mu- nicipal District of Cardston vho reigned as champions of he first ever S'ummer Games. Regional director for Card- iton, Tom Karren, was bearn- ng as the official Southern Al- jerta Summer Games flag was resented to his region. Games committee chairman Fred Lip- ikey presented the flag. Cardslon emerged with the spoils after accumulating 06 loints from the eight events. Their total was 5.5 points bet- er than the County of Warner and 12.5 points better than the City of Lethbridge. A point system was used at lie Games with 10 points allot- ed for a victory, nine for sec- ond place, eight for third and so on down the lure. FIRST FLAG fn earning the first cham- jionship flag the Cardston con- ingent gained the maximum 0 points in (he male division of track and field, the female section of the slow pitcli com- petitions and horseshoes. They licked up nine points in arch- ery and trap shooting while eight points came their way in :he female portion of track and Md, 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 'inished over all after the City of Lethbridge came Municipal District of Willow Creek with Pincher Creek finishing fifth, i'aber followed while County of "jethbridge was next. County of ?orty Mile was just behind >thbridge with Crowsnest Pass and Blood and Peigan He- serves trailing. In Thursday's slow pitch ac- iion the men's finals were run off with Warner winning the [old medal after downing the liost Pincher Creek club 10-8 in the final. Pinehcr 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 entertainment. 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. DIV1NS FINALS Boys 10 and Under 1. Ron Trenc.
