Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE December 27.1973 National Football League semi-finals set ANDY CAPP Miami Vikings-Cowboys By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A big reason for Manny Fer- nandez's success as a defen- sive tackle for Miami Dolphins is his mobility. But Fernandez hasn't been mobile since tearing a ham- string muscle three weeks ago against Baltimore. He hopes to get off the bench by proving in workouts today that he is fit for Sunday's American Football Conference title game against Oakland Raiders. felt good last said the six-year veteran. ''Last Friday and I felt I was moving as good as I ever moved. But Coach Don Shula decided to hold me against Cincinnati. Aeros blitzed By THE CANADIAN PRESS New England Whalers had to come from but when the final buzzer sounded Wednesday night they emerg- ed with a 3-2 decision over Houston Aeros in a battle between the giants of the World Hockey Association that ended in overtime. Brad Selwood scored a goal at the mark that broke Aeros' streak of nine games at home without a loss. It also cost Aeros a chance to take first place in the West Division. A crowd of 7.877 watched as the now leaders in the East by six took a 2-1 series lead over the Aeros. Selwood's goal came from the left point after a faulty clearing but he confess- ed he didn't know exactly where the shot was going. didn't care how it went he said. saw the puck hit somebody and I almost died of relief when it went into the Aeros' goalie Don McLeod said the shot deflected past him off defenceman Paul Popiel. The Whalers earlier in the day had called up defenceman Ric Jordan from Jacksonville Barons- of the American Hockey League as a replace- ment for the injured Rickey Ley. Ley strained ligaments in his right knee in New England's game against Van- couver Monday. In other games Vancouver Blazers beat Cleveland Crusaders 5-3 and Winnipeg Jets tamed Chicago Cougars 4-2. Edmonton Oilers and Houston lead the pack with 38 while Minnesota Fighting Saints are third with 37. Winnipeg has 36. The are not doing so well at the gate.

Dallas Coach Tom Landry believes both his Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings have changed since the last time they met. The Vikings are more potent offensively and Dallas is tougher defensively. Dallas defeated Minnesota 20-12 in 1971 in a National Football Conference divisional playoff and the teams haven't played since. Tarkenton at quar- terback has made the Vikings a much better offensive Landry said as the two teams prepared for Sunday's NFC title showdown in Texas Stadium. Landry added that the Cow- boy which has been superb in the stretch run to the playing with more intensity than any defen- sive team we've The Cowboys will go into the game without runner Calvin who dis- located an elbow in a 27-16 vic- tory over Los Angeles in last Sunday's NFC semifinal playoff game. Robert who has played only one game at half- back this steps into the slot. Defensive tackle Bob Lilly is also doubtful because of a pulled hamstring muscle. Third-year pro Bill Gregory is primed for Lilly's slot. If Lilly does miss the it will break a string of 183 consecutive National Football League appearances. Winter rains are hampering the Raiders in preparing for the championship battle. They sloshed through prac- tice Wednesday with rain pouring down on the chilled coaches and players as Coach John Madden emphasized defence. Madden had his charges concentrate on stopping Miami's triple running threat of Jim Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris.

It will be a very difficult job preparing our defense for The Vikings started that preparation Wednesday with a two-hour workout in light snow on the artificially sur- faced University of Minnesota stadium. A major portion of the workout included reserves running the Dallas offence. 'The fact that Calvin Hill is not going to be playing is go- ing to be an important ingredient in that they will be missing their leading said Grant. they have other good backs.
