Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Saturday, August Panasiuk after course record EDMONTON Panasiuk took a two-stroke lead in the Alberta Open golf tournament Friday and immediately set his sights on breaking the course record during today's second round. The confident Windsor, Ont., resident fired a six- under-par 65 on the opening day and thought he tied the course record at the 6.581- yard Derrick Golf and Winter Club course. When told the course record was 64. Panasiuk barely flinched and shot back: I'll just have to shoot 63 Saturday and break the record." Panasiuk, winner of two events on the Canadian tour this year and the leading money-winner, led the assault on par in the opening round of the 54-hole event. With ideal weather conditions and easy pin piacements, 33 of the 124 goiters in the field shattered par on a course that tour officials rated as one of the toughest that touring pros have faced in 1974. After sinking five birdies and one eagle while only taking one bogey, Panasiuk proclaimed: "1 don't have too much trouble with any golf course." Four players carded 67s, three were at 68 and 12 were bunched at 69. Another 13 shot 70s. one under par. Amateur Ken Wasslen of Calgary turned in one of the day's biggest surprises with a 67. mainly on the strength of sharp putting. Veteran Bob Cox of Richmond. B.C., and two young professionals. Don Rioux of Ottawa and Terry Wiens of Vancouver, also had 67s. Rioux, who has not made much money on the tour, said a change in his swing was responsible for his good showing. However, his putting was off." Cox was seven under par after 12 holes, but had bogeys on three of the last four holes. One of the bogeys came when he three-putted from eight feet. Ed Engelhardt of the Lethbridge Country Club was in with a 37-37 74 while Ian Schmidt of the city had an opening round score of 84. WELL, SO MUCH FOR< ARM-LOCK. J I THINK I MUST BUWsiEb MESEIF OUT VEAHS AGO, WEDLOCK ON'IM.' r Former Broncos face stiff fines Torre liked that strange face, blasted game-winning single Ontario gals take junior golf title EDMONTON (CP) The consistency of Stacey West of Thornhill was vital as Ontario captured the team title Friday in the Canadian women's junior golf championships. She turned in an 80, one of the top rounds of the day, as Ontario won over Quebec by one shot in the team com- petition. Miss West was the only On- tario junior whose score counted on both days of the three-member interprovincial junior competition, in which each team totalled its best two scores. Miss West totalled 81 and 80 while Liz Ruttan of Unionville. the individual leader after 18 holes with 160, fired 77 and 83. Miss Ruttan's score did not count on the final day. Quebec had led after :irst- day competition 'A- two shots. Top Quebec scores Friday were 79 by Diane Plante of La Tuque, and 86 by Diane Dolan of Gatineau. The Thursday- leader, Louise Tremblay of L Assomption. who managed a 76. had an 87 for a 163 total. Ruttan's leading 160 topped provincial partner West by- one shot, while the tiny Alberta provincial champ, Jackie Davies, tied with Debby Stewart of Long Beach, Calif., at 162 for third place. has to get said West. "I chipped badly but I putted well and I scored well. It somebody putts well Saturday and chips better than I did. I'm sure the winning score will be inter- esting." Ontario's Pam Johns of Weston. considered the favorite in pre-tournament speculation, shot 82 Friday for a 166 total. "Don't ask me how well I she said. "Ontario won; that's more important." Miss Tremblay's 163 carried her to fifth place in the individual race, with Miss Plante sixth and Miss Dolan tied with Miss Johns for seventh. Carol Andreachuk of Lethbridge cut six strokes off her first-round total, coming in at an 84 for a total of 174 after two rounds. ASSOCIATED PRESS When Joe Torre stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the ninth inning Friday night, he was happy not to see a familiar face. Torre, who had been struck out by John D'Acquisto in each of his previous three times at bat. laced a two-run single off San Francisco reliever Elias Sosa to give St. Louis Cardinals a 2-1 victory over the Giants. "Just getting up and not having to face that other guy (D'Acquisto) felt said Torre, whose single to left kept the first-place Cards IVz games in front of Philadelphia Phillies in the tight National League East. Elsewhere, New York Mets edged Cincinnati Reds 2-1 in 12 innings, Pittsburgh Pirates tripped Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2, Philadelphia defeated Atlanta Braves 6-3, Houston Astros whipped Montreal Expos 8-3 and Chicago Cubs stopped San Diego Padres 4-1.

The winner of the playoff will advance to the Alberta Intermediate finals August 2, 4 and 25. The provincials will be held at the home arena of the Southern champ. D'Acquisto, 9-11, handcuffed the Cards on just two hits over the first eight innings, but pinch-hitter Jim Dwyer walked to open the ninth and Lou Brock singled him to third, bringing on Sosa. Brock promptly stole second for his 81st theft of the season. After Ted Sizemore flied out, Reggie Smith was intentionally walked, before Torre's single. Rusty Staub singled home Bud Harrelson in the top of the 12th to put the Mets in front 2-1. It was then up to New York relief ace Tug McGraw to keep things that way. The first man up in the bot- tom of the 12th was Johnny laced a McGraw curve to the wall in left field, the ball hitting just below the yellow home-run line. Bench wound up on second with a double. Darrel Chaney tried to bunt Bench along, but McGraw fielded the ball, spun and fired to third in time for the out. That proved to be the key play, as McGraw got Dave Bahnsen redeemed self in White Sox nightcap ASSOCIATED PRESS Chicago White Sox split a doubleheader with New York Yankees Friday night in rather remarkable fashion in American League Baseball action. Chicago lost the first game 9-8 when Thurman Munson hit a two-out, two-run homer in the last of the 13th inning. Then pitcher Stan Bahnsen, knocked out in the second in- ning of the opener, carne back to win the nightcap with 4 2-3 innings of solid relief as Chi- cago gained the split, 4-2. Elsewhere, Boston Red Sox edged Minnesota Twins 3-2. Texas Rangers rapped Cleve- land Indians 7-3, Baltimore Orioles shut out Kansas City Royals 1-0, California Angels trimmed Milwaukee Brewers 7-3 and Detroit Tigers defeated Oakland A's 5-3. Bahnsen 's ex-Yankee team- mates teed off on Bahnsen for seven hits and five runs in 1 1- 3 innings of the opener, shelling him out of the game. But Chicago came back and in the 13th, Dick Allen, who missed the start of the game because of an upset stomach, was in the lineup for Chicago and hit his 32nd home run. Reliever Terry Forster re- tired the first two Yankees in the bottom of the 13th. But then Bobby Murcer singled and Munson hit his game- turning homer. In the nightcap. Chicago scored all of its runs in the fourth inning with Bill Melton and Bill Sharp hitting con- secutive home runs. When the Yankees threatened in the fifth, who should appear out of the bullpen but Bahnsen. This time, the veteran right- hander limited New York to two hits and gained the victory. Boston pushed across the ninth-inning run on Juan Ben- iquez' bases-loaded single to shade Minnesota. Rick Bur- leson's double sandwiched around walks to Doug Griffin and Rick Miller preceded Ben- iquez' winning hit. Veteran Juan Marichal started for Boston and limited Minnesota to one run until the seventh inning. Concepcion to pop out for the second out of the inning. Then, after walking George Foster, he retired Cesar Geronimo on a grounder to the mound for the final but.

Relief pitcher Tom Dettore belted a two-run double in the sixth inning and hurled in 6 1-3 innings of three-hit relief to lead the Cubs past San Diego. REGINA (CP) Former Lethbridge Broncos players David Williams and Terry Ruskowski may face stiff penalties if City Magistrate's Court heeds the advice of Crown Prosecutor Fred Luberti. The former juniors pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of common assault stemming from a 30-minute brawl that interrupted a Western Canada Hockey League semi-final playoff game between the Broncos and Regina Pats April 19. Mr. Luberti said that in view of the players' youth and absence of criminal records, he would not ask for a jail sentence but that both were able to pay and deserved fines of at least each. "We cannot say our hockey ice is an island removed from the criminal Mr. Luberti said. "Hockey is a part of our national life. Why should spectators be subject to Williams. 20, of Weyburn. Sask.. and Ruskowski. 19, of Prince Albert played their last of three years with the Broncos in the 1973-74 season. Williams now has signed with Toronto Maple Leafs and Ruskowski with Houston Aeros. The original charges laid against Williams were common assault., causing a disturbance and assaulting a peace officer. The second of these was later withdrawn by the Crown and the charge of assaulting a peace officer was changed to common assault. A similar charge laid against Ruskowski also was changed to common assault. Mr. Luberti told the court that fans had been heckling Williams with remarks such as "Is itybur referring to No. 27 on his sweater. Williams, who was serving a holding penalty, jumped into the stands and began striking a fan with his hockey stick while a guard tried to restrain him. When a second guard attempted to stop Ruskowski from entering the stands, Ruskowski hit him on the head with his hockey stick, Mr. Luberti said. The Crown Prosecutor said the assault charges were serious because the consequences could have been serious injury and because hockey players such as Williams and Ruskowski are men in the public eye. "Such a person committing an offence while he is in the limelight creates a greater danger to society than the violence Mr. Luberti said. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 22. STOP NBA INCURSION INDIANAPOLIS (AP) In- diana Pacers of the American Basketball Association were granted a temporary injunction Friday to keep New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association from signing superstar George McGinnis. The Pacers filed a lawsuit as the most recent development in the situation which has seen the veteran 6- foot-8 forward negotiating with the three-time ABA champions and with the 76ers. while expressing hopes for a trade of his NBA rights from the 76ers to the Knicks.
