Restic had words of praise for several of his key players, among them backup quarter- back John Eckman, defensive halfback John Williams and Tommy Joe Coffcy whose kick- ing earned him a league scoring record. Coffcy started the Ticat march with a first quarter field goal fiora 22 yards to give him a career total of 753 points. .Jackie Parker, now coach of British Columbia Lions, held the previous record of 750 after 13 seasons with Edmonton Eski- mos, Toronto Argonauts and B.C. Coffey pushed the mark to 75! with another field goal from 43 yards in the third quarter and converts on touchdowns by Eck- man and Dave Fleming. The win put Hamilton in a tie ACTION PLENTIFUL Lethbridge Native Sons' net- minder Don Hall had plenty of action, over the weekend in the Alberla Lacrosse League semi-finals.

Meanwhile, the Lethbridge Juvenile Lancers were beaten 8-3 in their too game total, goal playoff series against the Nan- ton Juveniles. Before a good size crowd yes- terday afternoon the Blues started off fast by potting in two quick goals in the 11-8 win. The Sons retaliated whipping in four straight goals and held the two-goal margin until Tom Cairns of the Blues narrowed the gap by one just before the period ended. Edmonton came out strong in the second period and pelted Sons' goalie Don Hall with boonring shots. The Blues dur- i n g this barrage managed seven consecutive goals before the Sons could click for two.

Huliiie Wins Third In Row MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) Dennis Hulme of England, scor- ing his third-straight triumph in the 1970 series, led all the way Sunday to win the Buck- eye Cup Canadian-American road race over the Mid-Oliio course near here. HuLme piloted his Chevrolet powered McLaren MUD to vic- tory in a record time of 95.184 m.p.h. for the 30-lap, 192-mile distance. His 1969 course record here was 94.21 m.p.h. Peter Revson of New York City took second in his Lola T- 220 Chevrolet in 94.163 m.p.h., more than a minute behind Hulme. Lothar Motschenbacker o f Hollywood, Calif., finished third, llotschenbackcr was in a Mc- Laren M-8B, that Hulme drove in 1909 and was one lap behind the leader over the twisting, as- phatted 2.4-mile course. Chuck Parsons of Deerfield, III., was fourth in a Lola T-163 Chevrolet and fifth was Gary Wilson of Towando. Kan., in a Lola T-163 Chevrolet. His car, by a 427 Chevrolet en- gine, was four laps behind Hulme. Sixth was Roger McCaig of Moose Jaw, Sask., in a Me- with Toronto Argonauts, two points behind Montreal Al- ouettcs who lead the Eastern Conference with six points. The Bombers are last in the West without a win in four games. Eckman went into the game in the first quarter after vet- eran Joe Zuger got caught be- tween two "Winnipeg defenders just as he let go a pass. WAS HIT HAKD "I got hit hard in the said Zuger. "I was pretty woozy." Zuger went back in for punt- ing chores in the second quarter. "H c's a different-looking quarterback than he was last Restic said of Eckman, who completed nine of 17 passes for 165 yards. "That's what a little experience does." Eckman got the first touch- down midway through the sec- ond quarter after five plays got the Ticats from' midfield to the Winnipeg five-yard line where the quarterback plunged across for the score. The Bombers got into the game early in the third quarter when they faked a field goal at- tempt from the Hamilton 31. Backup quarterback Ron John- son went in lo hold the ball for kicker Gene Lakusiak, but in- stead rolled out to the right and fired a pass to end Lou Andras in the end zone. Lakusiak failed on the convert attempt. The Hamilton defensive half- backs snuffed out any further Winnipeg comeback attempts, with Williams providing close coverage on Bomber's ace re- ceiver, Ken Nielson. Williams also intercepted one of Wally Gabler's passes. Gar- ney Henley picked off one and Mac Sauls intercepted two. INTERCEPTION COUNTS Fleming got his first touch- down in the fourth quarter by plunging across from the one- yard line and Williams' inter- ception set up the other major score in the final minutes. On the second play after the interception, Eckman fired a 23-yard pass to Fleming at the Winnipeg goal-line and many of the crowd of started to leave Civic Stadium. Fleming's 60 yards on 13 car- ries and Ed Buchanan's 64 in eight helped the Ticats to a total of 204 yards rushing against 129 by Winnipeg. Full- back Bob Houmard was the leading Bomber rusher with 56 yards in 11 carries. Gabler completed 10 of 20 passes for 135 yards while John- son was in on only the one play for the touchdown. The Ticats recorded a total offence of 355 yards lo Winni- peg's 288. The Bombers go back home to meet Toronto Wednesday while the Ticats have more than two weeks to prepare for their meet- ing with Montreal Sept. 7.
