Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December It, 197! THB LETHBRIDGE HEKAID 11 DaliTs charges only unbeaten squad in south loop Cougars claw Magrath Zeniths 70- By LLOYD VAMAGISIII 'Herald Sports Writer "Cougars slraw their teeth." The Catholic Central Cougars opened their Jaws and clamped onto a 70-42 victory over the visiting Magralh Zeniths in Southern Alberta "A" Boy's Basketball League action Fri- day night. The lop sided win pushed the Cougars into a solid first place lead as they remain un- beaten after three starts. The Zeniths suffered their first loss of the season and sport a 1-1 record. It was sweet revenge for the Cougars last night as they re- bounded from a 61-50 loss to the Zeniths in the Magrath In- COUGARS IN CONTROL An unidentified Catholic Central Cougar picks off a re- bound Friday evening at Catholic Central. Action came against Magralh Zeniths as the Cougars belted the Zeniths 70-42. Cougars are the only unbeaten team in the South- ern Alberta High School Basketball League. Rams still in fight for last berth By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Everything's all but settled in the National Football League except for California, where San Francisco '49crs and Los Ange- les Rams go down to the wire in the playoff berth battle. With the exception of the Na- tional Conference West, which will send only one representi- tive into post-season play, all winners and runners-up have been decided. And going into Sunday's 14th and final weekend of regular- season action, '49ers, with on 8-5 record, hold a half-game margin over their arch-rivals, the Rams. San Francisco can repeat as NFC West winner with a victory over visiting Detroit can bad. into the title as well, if the Rams tie or lose in their game several hours earlier in the day against the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Sunday's other games have New England Patriots at Balti- more Colts, Green Bay Packers at Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns at Washington Red- skins, Minnesota Vikings at Chi- cago Bears, Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Fal- cons at New Orleans Saints, San Diego Chargers at Houston Oil- ers, Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants and Cincinnati Ben- gals at New York Jets. In today's game, St. Louis Cardinals visit Dallas Cowboys. A victory would clinch the NFC East crown for the Cowboys, who went into the contest with a half-game lead over Washing- ton. Baltimore's defending Super Bowl champions, likewise can win their division, the AFC East, by turning back the Pa- triots. Miami trails Uie Colts by one-half game. But regardless of whether the Cowboys, Redskins, Colts or Dolphins win their divisions, all four clubs will be in Uie play- offs, along with Cleveland, Kan- sas City, Minnesota and either San Francisco or Los Angeles. If the AFC and NFC East standings remain as is with Bal- timore and Dallas winning, Miami and Washington will have the "wild card" slots as the runners-up with the best records in each conference. And if the Dolphins and Red- skins vault into the top spots, the Colts and Cowboys will be the runners-up and the "wild card" squads. 49ers NO. 2 The '49ers, with John Brodie throwing to Ted Kwal'ck and Gene Washington while Vic Washington and Ken Willard do the running, are No. 2 in NFC offence. The Lions are third, led by quarterback Greg Landry and running back Steve Owens. The Rams, fourth in NFC of- fence, are paced by second-best ground gainer Willie Ellison. But tiie Steelers will counter with Terry Bradshaw tossing to Ron Shanklin and Dave Sm'th. The Colts, with by far the best defence in the league both against the run and pass, will be out to repeat their 23-3 si- lencing of Uie Patriots 11 weeks ago. HENDERSON LAKE GOLF CLUB P.O.

Ed Ferenz, truly a local boy who has made good, was home for a visit the other day. With the excep- tion of a Philadelphia drawl, he hasn't changed much. He even told me he was still a Frank Sinatra Ed is the travelling secretary for the Philadel- phia Phillies of baseball's National League. His job is indeed big league. It has been the best part of 18 years since 1 first met Ed. He was playing with the Medicine Hat Tigers in the old Western Canada Junior League. He played with the Gas City because he couldn't make the Lethbridge Native Sons. But, then again, neither' could Doug Barkley and Ed Babiuk. Ed, I remember, stayed with a family called Donaldson and I remember so well, not because of Ed but his roommate, a rambunctious cowboy from Stavely. Johnny MacKenzie. In those days Ferenz was the last person in a conversation. It'was MacKenzie who called most of the shots. Reminiscing with Ed made me remember MacKenzie still owes me a couple of good footballs. Ed was the quiet guy in the Ferenz MacKenzie twosome. Ed would play catch with the young guys while MacKenzie used to show us how far he could kick a football. I can tell you one thing the ball goes a long way up when you give it a solid boot with a cowboy boot. Most times, however, it comes down flat. I lived across the street from the Donaldsons and spent most of my free time pestering Ferenz and MacKenzie. They were only five or six years older than I was but, to me, they were my Bobby Orr and Gordie Howe. I can remember standing outside the old rink, the Medicine Hat Gardens, waiting for one of the players to come along with a free ticket, if I hadn't gotten one from Ed or Johnny. But all the time I hoped no one would have one because it was more fun to sneak in. -A- It has been quite some time since Ed has played any hockey. He has, however, made a solid dent in the world of. baseball. "There's quite a hit of difference in being the travelling secretary of a baseball club than in be- ing its public address said Ferenz. Now instead of telling the people who is at bat or who's playing left field, Ferenz tells the announcer. Ferenz is a little biased, but he honestly feels the Phillies are an up and coming club. He'll be quick to tell you that the ball club is young and needs time, but maybe not as much time as most people think. If Ferenz had a favorite topic while visiting It had to be Larry Bowa. "This kid, at 25 years of age, is the best short- stop in baseball Ferenz made clear. "He should have been a shoe-in for golden glove honors." The golden glove award was a sore spot with Ferenz. "How could the writers give it to anybody but he added. The award went to Don Kes- singer of the Cubs despite the fact that Bowa estab- lished fielding records for the fewest errors, 11, in any major league season, as well as the highest-ever average for a shortstop, .987. Ferenz is back into the thick of things that are major league baseball. I just hope that at this special time of the year each and everyone of you renews acquaintances with someone you consider a friend, and haven't seen for some time. It's a good feeling. Minor hockey Basketball TourM-i ncnt championship final ear- ier in the season. 'Hie Cougars were rot to be .cnicd of a victory last night is they had a prolific offence md a stone walled defence. Bill Pei-sley, coach of the 'auxhall Vikings in the SouUi- vest Conference and Wes Rice, well known basketball play- and coach in southern Al- >erta, were more than impress- ed witli the Cougars' play. "They're a strong and tough jail commented Persley. "And they've got a beautiful patterned added Rice uses the same type of of- ence as a coach.

Bobby Jones ATLANTA, Bobby Jones, Ga. (AP) the great who won golf's only Grand Slam in 1930, died today at his home. Jones's career, entirely as an amateur, culmina'ted in the Grand Slam in 1930 when he was 23. He won the U.S. Ama- teur and British Open and Brit- ish Amaieur, a feat which has in recent years prompted the game's greats to start searching for substitute "slams" in an ef- fort to challenge Jones's achievement. A debilitating disease struck Jones shortly after he arbitrar- ily ended his own career and he deteriorated steadily from the 1940s on. His last round of golf was ta 1948. "In the passing of Bob Jones, Hie world of golf has suffered i great said Arnold Palmer. "What he established, with the Grand Slam and the Mas- ters, will live on forever in the minds of golfers and sports fans everywhere."
