Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Shero questions how he can criticize hockey McMurtry not competent enough? Friday, August 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Jenkins getting closer to seventh 20-win year THE CANADIAN PRESS -Players die like flies in football, why is everybody up in arms over violence in That was the question posed Thursday at the Hockey Hall of Fame inductions by Fred Shero, coach of Philadelphia Flyers, the National Hockey League Stanley Cup cham- pions. Shero said William McMurtry, author of a report into violence in Ontario amateur hockey, is not com- petent to criticize the sport. Shero did not elaborate on the point. The report, tabled in the On- tario legislature Wednesday, blames the NHL for setting a poor example for amateurs. It says the NHL brand of hockey encourages violence. "Why is everybody up in arms over violence in Shero asked, men- tioning the rate of football deaths. "There's over 20 deaths a year in that sport. I don't think there's ever been one death resulting from hockey." The Flyers' Coach delivered TCH.' ROTTEN LUCK. LAO CHIT'S TUST ONE OF THOSE THIN6S, ANVONE CAN 'AVE WHO THIN' ABOUT' Baker thought game was great VANCOUVER (CP) BUI Baker, a defensive end for British Columbia Lions who's been named All-Canadian twice, figured he was involved in one heck of a football game Thursday night. Trouble is, fans who watched the Lions' Canadian Football League 9-4 loss to Ot- tawa Rough Riders here prob- ably won't agree with him. The game, a defensive struggle from the opening whistle until the final play, was hardly the most exciting thing in the world to watch, with Ottawa's defence proving a little more stingy than the Lions. The two clubs' offences spent a frustrating evening managing just 11 first downs apiece. The one big play of the night, a 52-yard scoring strike from Ottawa's starting quarterback Rick Cassata to Jim Foley midway through the second quarter would have provided enough points for Ot- tawa to win. "I've never seen three better quarters of defensive Baker said of the last 45 minutes of the interlocking contest. Ottawa gained a mere 90 yards on the ground with Art Green their leading ball carrier totalling 45 yards on 12 carries. His backfield partner Jim Evenson, a former Lion, got the ball 13 times and ad- vanced just 38 yards. Lions ran for 120 yards with Munroe Eley's 92 yards on 11 carries the bulk of that total. Take away one 43-yard draw play by Eley and there's little left. Things weren't much better in the air. Cassata completed five of 14 passes, including the game's only touchdown pass, for 92 yards. Jerry Keeling, who replaced Cassata in the third quarter, was good on four of six attempts for 42 yards. B.C. starter Don Moorhead completed four of 21 attempts for 59 yards while Karl Douglas was good on two of the six aerials he tried while replacing Moorhead in the se- cond quarter.

Bull W For the first time a Canadian shooter has scored a perfect 100 straight in the difficult Doubles trap competition, in which two birds are "released simultaneously. Shooting in the first half of the International shoot at Great Falls, Shayne Wynott of Calgary got them all. Unfortunately this remarkable achievement does not constitute a Canadian Record, as it was not fired in Canada, but Shayne joins the ranks of a select elite that have fired this score in the U.S. At Camp Perry the fabled Wimbledon 1000 yard, any rifle, any sight match was won this year with a score of 100-19V. The first three relays fired under -ideal weather conditions with a slightly overcast sky and zero wind. It was expected that a number of perfect scores would be recorded, and over 40 competitors came close to 100-19V scores. Lethbridge's lone competitor. Bob Hobbs, fired the 5th relay in an 8 to 15 mile an hour variable wind and heavy mirage, scoring 97-11V. The Remington 7 m.m. Magnum and 7 m.m. Magnums based on the Weatherby .300 case completely dominated this competition, breaking a dominance of the .30 calibre that has prevailed since the Wimbledon was first fired in 1904. In Calgary the British High Power Rifle team shot against 20 native Albertans at Sarcee Ranges. The Brits established an early lead at the short ranges of 200 to 600 yards, which appeared insurmountable. Later in the day at the long 800. 900. and 1000 yard ranges the native Albertans evened the score, as they were more familiar with Sarcee's shifting winds. Art Bourne of Lethbridge shot with the Alberta team, finishing strongly with a 46 x 50 at 1000 yards. This competition was restricted to iron sights and military 7.62 ammunition. With identical scores the winners, the British team, had 2 more central than the Albertans. The "V" is a smaller circle inside of the 5 ring used to decide ties. The Alberta Summer Games competitions are scheduled for Sarcee Ranges this coming week-end, and we wish the Lethbridge contingent consisting of Bill Karbashewski. Dennis Carrier, Kerwm Kntkas. Bob Hobbs. Jr. and Art Bourne good luck. Lethbridge's first Registered Bench Rest shoot was held in rain, which did not seem to adversely effect the small groups. Winners were Terry McCracken of Calgary in Light Varmint Class Bob Hobbs Junior of Lethbridge, Class Charlie Womack, Kamloops, B.C., Heavy Varmint, with Steve Zibresky copping the Three Gun Aggregate with a .5248 average. Best roup at 100 yards was a .191 fired by Steve Zibresky, while Womack grouped .427 as the best 200 yard group.

(AP) Pitcher Kao Sun-teh of Tai- wan threw a one-hitter against Tallmadge, Ohio, for an 11-0 victory Thursday to advance to the finals of the Little League World Series. First baseman Lin Wen- hsiung, who hit a home run and won the opening game Tuesday as a pitcher, hit two more homers and drove in four runs to lead the Taiwan batters. Centre-fielder Kuo Yao-tsong added two singles and a triple. The team from Kao Hsiung is seeking Taiwan's fourth consecutive victory in the weeklong tournament. the game much was B.C. assistant coach Dick touchdown pass to Foley the subject of his ire. "The referee (Sid Bercov) made the worst call in the his- tory of football by not calling clipping on Hugh Oldham on that play." Zornes said. He claimed the Ottawa receiver had clipped defensive back Barry Ardern. 111 don't care what Zornes continued, "I'll pay a fine if I have to. "It was so blatant it was un- believable. The referee was staring right at the play and never called it." One thing the officials defi- nitely didn't miss were three wide field goal attempts by Lions' placekicker Ivan Mac- Millan. All three were left of their target and resulted in three conceded points. Lions' other point came on a 62-yard single from a Slade Willis punt. Gerry Organ accounted for the Riders' other three points with a field goal in the first quarter. Ottawa was ahead 3-2 after the first quarter, led 9-3 at the half and 9-4 after three quar- ters. The Ottawa victory was in keeping with the pattern of play between the two clubs. In 14 league meetings, Ottawa has come away with wins 11 times and tied two others. The win boosts the Rough Riders into a first-place tie in the eastern conference with Montreal Alouettes. Riders' record now is three wins and three losses. It was the second straight defeat for the Lions, losers last week to Calgary, and brings their record to three wins against two defeats. Lions remain two points behind Saskatchewan Roughriders, leaders in the western conference.

Shero said Tarasov, who coached the Russians to four consecutive world cham- pionships, was "a great man who brought hockey out of the wilderness in Russia to top calibre." He said Tarasov played a significant part in helping Philadelphia win the Stanley Cup. "In 1967 I read his book Road to Olympus, and I've read it 100 times since. It's the greatest book on hockey ever written."

NHL president Clarence Campbell said Wednesday it is unlikely there will be any action taken by the NHL to check violence in the s.iort. "There never has been any violence in the said Campbell, after attending a meeting of the NHL board of governors. NOT DISCUSSED He said the governors did not even bother to discuss the report presented by the Toronto lawyer. Campbell Said he agreed with most of the recommen- dations in the report, except the one that game miscon- duct penalties should be man- datory for players involved in "I do not believe fighting has to be cut out of the game." said Campbell. At the governor's meeting, it was decided to experiment with a new type of goal-net structure. THE CANADIAN PRESS Ferguson Jenkins, trying to become a 20-game winner for the seventh time in eight sea- sons, won his 18th Thursday night as Texas Rangers de- feated Baltimore Orioles 6-2 in American League baseball action. In the only other major league game, also in the American League, Kansas City Royals defeated Cleveland Indians 3-1. Toby Harrah's three-run homer in a five-run fourth in- ning knocked Jim Palmer from the game and sparked the Rangers. Jpnkins. a Chatham, Ont., allowed six hits in the seven innings he pitched and ran his 1974 record to 18-11. Now 30 the right-hander, in his first season in the American league, gave up two runs in the seventh on singles by Bobby Grich and Don Baylor, and Brooks Robin- son's two-run double. The Rangers nicked Palmer for a run in the second on Mike Hargrove's double and a single by Joe Lovitto. In the fourth, Hargrove opened with a single and. one out later, Lenny Randle walk- ed in front of Harrah's homer. Palmer, 4-9, departed after Jim Sundberg's double and a single by Dave Nelson ac- counted for the fourth run of the inning. Then Jeff Burroughs singled off reliever Doyle Alexander for his 103rd run batted in of the season. The game was delayed 52 minutes because of rain. Amis Otis and Hal McRae hit home runs to support Paul Splittorff's eight-hit pitching in Kansas city's victory. Otis hit his 12th homer of the season in the Royals' fourth after Vada Pinson led off with a single to right. McRae. leadoff hitter in the ninth, socked his 14th home run of the season. The Indians had two men on base in the fifth and seventh innings, but couldn't score. Splittorff, who held the In- dians hitless for three innings, moved to 13-12 and Indians' loser Jim Perry dropped to 13- 9. Texas, in third place, is b'1? games off the pace of Oakland A's in the West Division. Baltimore is seven games behind in the East. Kansas City moved to within 4'z games of Oakland, while the Indians remained 6'z games behind Boston Red Sox in the East Division.
