Horizontal Saint Jess Philips of New Orleans Saints flies over the line of scrimmage but is caught by the ankle. Just over in Seattle Fans still scarce at games THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Most of the veteran players were back for the weekend's National Football League exhibition games, but a lot of fans still weren't showing up. There were only fans in Seattle to watch St. Louis Cardinals bomb San Diego Chargers 48-14 while tickets were refunded in San Francisco, where Denver Broncos downed the '49ers 10- 3. In other Sunday games, Buf- falo Bills edged Washington Redskins 16-15 and New Eng- land Patriots beat New Orleans Saints 7-3. In Saturday games, Los Angeles Rams bombed Kansas City Chiefs 58-16.

Cincinnati Bengals trimmed Atlanta Falcons 13-7 in overtime. Green Bay Packers defeated Chicago Bears 20-10 and Dallas Cowboys upended Houston Oilers 19-13. The sparse crowd in Seattle watched as the Cardinals scored four second-quarter touchdowns Sunday, including two by hometown hero Terry Metcalf. Randy Gradishar. Denver's star linebacker, intercepted a pass and ran 83 yards for a touchdown with four minutes remaining to provide the mar- gin of victory for the Broncos. The crowd of was the smallest for the '49ers since their move to Candlestick Park three years ago. Buffalo slipped by Washington on John Leypoldt's 52-yard field goal with five seconds left in the game and second-year full- back Sam Cunningham scored the game's only touchdown in New England's win over New Orleans. Saturday, Kansas City was helpless before the onslaught of Los Angeles veterans led by Jim Bertelsen, Lawrence McCutcheon and new offensive star Cullen Bryant, a former defensive back, who rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown. Rookie running back Doug Kotar ran 69 yards with a screen pass for one Giants' touchdown and 13 yards for another before only 35.431 fans at the Yale Bowl in New- Haven. Roger Staubach scored from the two-yard line during a sudden death period to climax a come-from-behind victory for Dallas. He put the Cowbovs into a tie when he connected on a 23-yard touchdown pass to Ron Howard with 20 seconds left in regulation time. The Bengals also had to go into overtime to capture their third straight victory. Wayne Clark connected with John McDaniel on a 60-yard touch- down pass for the win. Joe Gilliarn brought the Steelers downfield to set up a Roy Gerela field goal which gave Pittsburgh an overtime victory. Marty Domres threw for one score and passed for another and the Colts also took advantage of two interceptions and two fumbles. The Packers came back against Chicago as quarterback Jerry Tagge threw touchdown passes to Eric Torkelson and Brent Longwell. EDMONTON (CP) It was almost a formality Sunday as Bob Panasiuk matched par 71 in the final round to win the Alberta Open golf championship by four shots over his three closest rivals. Sparked by an opening- round 65, Panasiuk carded 206 for 54 holes over the par-71 Derrick Golf and Winter Club course to collect and the Peter Jackson ring. He now has won in seven tournaments and leads his closest rival, Moe Norman of Gilford, Ont., by more than in total earnings. "It was a tough day for ev- said Panasiuk, out- spoken Windsor, Ont., shotmaker who almost constantly talks about the value of positive thinking. "I never enter a tournament I can't he said. "The only time I admit I can't win is when I've left the last green in the last round and my score isn't good enough." He entered the final round with a one-shot lead over his two closest rivals, James Barker of San Antonio, Tex., and John Morgan of Victoria, and stretched the margin eas- ily. At one time, early in the front nine, Morgan led Panasiuk by one shot and Barker was within reach at seven under par. equal to Panasiuk's closing total. But both faded in the gusty wind while John Kindred of Sarasota, Fla., turned in an impeccable closing 68 to tie them for second spot at 210. Each of the second place finishers won Tied in fifth spot, one shot behind, were Bill Tape of Kitchener, Ont.. and Steve Groves, of Lancaster, Ohio, who won each. The wind, which at times reached 25 miles an hour on the 6.581-yard course, claimed several well-regarded victims, including promising Dan Halldorson of Brandon, Man., and Gene Mixon of Pittsburgh, Calif., both of whom finished out of the money. They struggled to shocking 86s on the well-trapped layout. Both had trouble judging the wind and could not recover on the greens. Barker said he understands the difficulty. "I hit seven or eight shots just the way I wanted said the powerful Texan, playing his third Canadian tournament, "but I didn't wind up within 30 yards of where I wanted to be on any of them." Kindred's 68 was matched only by Rick Sprouse of Fal- Ibrook, Calif, as only five players beat par on the final day. Among those to equal par was Bob Bradburn Of Edmonton, leading amateur in the tournament, who ended at 218. the most dis- appointed competitor was Dave Barr of Kelowna, B.C. who finished with one over par 72 for 212 and won He blistered the front nine in 32, four under par, but faded to 40 coming home and was no threat in the final few holes. Despite his problems on the final nine, Barr had a better dav with a series of standouts. including Barker, Morgan, Groves, Gary Bowerman of Toronto, Gar Hamilton of Weston, Ont., and Michel Boyer of Laval, Que. Boyer had a of those who qualified in the 25 for prize said he was pleased to have done that well. "Everything I hit went over the he said. "If I used the right club, the wind blew too much. If I counted on the wind, it went still. I hope I learned something."

DIETER'S SKI SPORT CLEARANCE Continues Till Saturday, Aug. 24 _____Closing Time Steelers win title PROVOST, Alta. (CP) British Columbia's Burnaby Steelers became the Western Canada Junior Baseball champions Sunday winning two games against Edmonton Willows, the team that beat Steelers Saturday. Bert Haas, named the tournament's most valuable player, stroked a three-run homerun to lead Burnaby to a 15-10 win in the final game. Edmonton's Lawrence Niven, named runner-up as the most valuable player, hit three, two-run homeruns and Ernie Hee added one two-run homer for the Alberta team. Al Hill, the winning pitcher, was relieved by Dave Schwab in the seventh and Ed Wagner went all the way for Edmonton on the mound in a losing cause. Earlier, in the A-B final, Burnaby trounced Edmonton 15-4 in eight innings. There was only one homerun in the game, Dale Larson for Edmonton in the first inning with no one on. SASKATOON (CP) Stanley Cup champion Philadelphia Flyers bounced back from a 2-0 deficit to edge a select team of Saskatchewan professionals 3- 2 in a benefit hockey game Sunday before fans. Bobby Clarke, Bill Clement and Bob Kelly scored for the Flyers, who trailed 2-1 after the first period and scored two unanswered goals in the second period. Gerry Finder and Bill Orban scored for the Saskatchewan team, made up of National Hockey League, World Hockey Association and minor league players. Included in the Philadelphia lineup were Bill Flett, traded to Toronto Maple Leafs this spring, and Doug Favell of the Maple Leafs, a former member of the Flyers. Favell and Bobby Taylor shared goaltending for the Flyers combining for 26 saves. Jack Norris and Ed Humphreys blocked 29 drives for the Saskatchewan team. There were three penalties in the cleanly-played contest, two to Philadelphia. Proceeds from the game were turned over to the Saskatchewan Council for Crippled Children. EDMONTON (CP) Mo- ments after striking for a birdie on the first extra hole to capture the Canadian women's junior golf championship, Stacey West of Thornhill, Ont., buried her face in her hands. "I didn't know whether I was laughing or crying." she said. "I still don't know." Miss West, a poised, pretty 15-year-old preparing to enter Grade 12, defeated Debby Stewart, also 15, of Long Beach, Calif., when Miss Stewart's putt that would have extended the sudden-death match wound up four inches short of the hole. They wound up tied at 241 after Miss Stewart bogeyed the final hole of the 54-hole competition. In a brief interview after her victory, the blonde youngster admitted she was surprised to finish on top. "I would almost rather Pammie Johns or someone else in her final year of junior had won she said. "I've got three years left." She won by outdriving Miss Stewart from the tee by at least 20 yards. She whacked a live-iron onto the green and lagged a putt within inches. Miss Stewart's second shot on the 435-yard, par-five hole at Highlands Country Club was short of the green. She chipped inadequately and missed a tough 12-footer to tie. Although she bogeyed the fi- nal regulation hole, Miss Stewart's final-round 79 was matched by Kathy Powers of Lunenbergi N.S., for best of the day. Miss Stewart had 82 Thursday and 80 Friday while Miss West had 81 Thursday and 80 on each of the final two days. Liz Ruttan of Unionville, Ont., and Miss Johns, a long- hitting youngster from Weston, helped Miss West win the provincial team title for Ontario. Miss Ruttan finished alone in third place at 245, four shots behind the leaders. Two shots further back were Louise Tremblay of L'Assomption, Que., and Jackie Davies of Edmonton, while Judy Ellis of Kitchener, Ont., finished at 249. Completing the top 10 were Miss Johns and Diane Plante of La Tuque, Que.. at 250, and Paula Phillips of Vancouver and Diane Dolan of Gatineau, Que.. at 252. In a four-way tie at 253 were Miss Powers, Jill Badger of North Vancouver, B.C., Susan Gwyn-Timothy of Halifax and Heather Williams of Oakville, Ont. In at 254 was Mary Clegg of Weston, who tied Carolyn Cox of Charlottetov for low net honors. Miss West said she will not remain here for the Canadian women's amateur this week. Among the top junior stars staying are Debby Stewart, her sister, Marty, and the talented Miss Powers. Carol Andreachuk of Lethbridge had a final round 88 for a tournament total of 262. That put her in a four way tie for 20th place nationally. Eskies look for revenge EDMONTON (CP) Edmonton Eskimos will be looking for revenge in their first regular season CFL game with Ottawa Rough Riders since the 1973 Grey Cup clash. But. from all indications, the play will be cautious and literally down-to-earth. "'To beat Ottawa, we're going to have to keep control of the ball, and keep from making says Edmonton quarterback Tom Wilkinson. And Tom Dimitroff, Rider assistant coach, said Ottawa would concentrate less on the long passes that contributed to a 27-14 win over Montreal Alouettes last Tuesday. "If we keep throwing that thing out West against some of the defensive back they guys like Larry Highbaugh, speed won't do said Dimitroff. Instead. Ottawa will empha- size its powerful running-back team of Jimmy-Lee Evenson and Art Green. The pair is considered one of the best One- two combinations in the Eastern Football Conference, with Kvenson a middle runner and Green an outside speedster. "If you can establish a solid running game, you're in good said Rider coach George Brancato. Observers and players called Ottawa's last match with Montreal one of the most physical games in recent CFL history, and Eskimos are preparing for a similar bout. "They seem to win by big plays offensively and great over-all efforts said Edmonton coach Ray Jauch. "They always try to in- timidate us. ''From a physical standpoint, we have to be more ready to play this one than any other. We have a few people who have memories of that Grey Cup game." "I think most of us look at Ottawa as tougher than any iother) eastern added Wilkinson. The Eskimos have won two of three games far this season while the Riders, who started with consecutive losses, have battled back into a second- place EFC tie with Toronto Argonauts. The game will be televised on the full CBC network. Short sport SNEAD TRIUMPHS STOCKHOLM (AP) Sam Snead defeated Sweden's Sven Tumba in a one-sided exhibition golf match Sunday.
