Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 28, 1971 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD 7 Chalks up another season Hull right there among top scorers MONTREAL (CP) Bobby Hull of Chicago Black Hawks appears to be blazing his way back into contention for the Na- tional Hockey League's goal- scoring title he lost two seasons ago to centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins. Hull, the powerful left winger who will be 33 next Monday, scored four goals in Chicago's two games last week to increase his total to 13th consecu- tive season he has reached that figure. His current total leaves him with three fewer goals than Es- posito's league-leading mark of 28 and one more than left wingers Vic Hadfield of New York Eangers and Richard Martin, Buffalo Sabres' prize No player previous to Hull won more than five goal-scoring titles, and only the now-retired Gordie Howe of Detroit Red didn't show said San Fran Cisco '49ers coach Dick Nolan Two weeks ago Hull trailed Esposito by six goals. He now has scored at least one goal in seven games in a row and in nine of Chicago's last 10 con- tests. During the seven-game stretch, Hull scored 10 goals and had 13 in the 10-game streak. WON 4 STRAIGHT TITLES Hull led the NHL in goal scor- ing for a record four straight seasons from 1965-66 through 1968-69. He also was the leader In 1963 and 1961-62 and shared the honor with Boston's Bronco Horvath in 1959-60. Wings and the late Charlie Con- acher of Toronto Maple Leafs had won three in a row. Esposito is gunning for a third straight goal-scoring crown, having ended Hull's reign in 1969-70 with 43 goals while the Chicago player counted 38, and May have something new Nolan staying SAN FRANCISCO (AP) returned another 47 yards.

Nolan's team, a 24-20 winner over Washington Redskins in the opening round of the Na- tional Football League playoffs, began practising today for .Sun- day's National Conference title game with the Cowboys. Nolan made one personnel change for the playoff opener by using backup quarterback Steve Spurrier, instead of spe- cialist Jim McCann, to punt. Spurrier will robably be used against Dallas. "It's partly because S'teve has experience. But also be- cause of what we can do with him in there on punt forma- says Nolan, dropping a hint in Dallas' direction.

Beaten only once in the last 15 starts, the Bruins were re- warded with a complete day off Monday after weekend victories over Philadelphia Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs. Now the Bruins face a long stretch on the road, while still trailing New York Rangers by four points in the East. The Bruins will launch the im- portant trip Wednesday night in Chicago, meeting the Black Hawks, who are making a runa- way in the West. Boston will go to Minnesota for a game with the North Stars Thursday night end then invade New York for a showdown with the Rangers Sunday. HAWKS HOT Chicago will be ready for the Bruins. With Bobby Hull scoring 10 goals in his last seven games, the Hawks have won eight in a row, the longest vic- tory string in the NHL this sea- son. _ Boston coach Tom Johnson hardly pulled a surprise Mon- day when he announced that veteran Eddie Westfall will start at right wing on a check- Johnson, however, made one switch, changing his rotation program for veteran goalies Eddie Johnston and Gerry Cheevers. Johnston, who played in a 3-1 victory over Toronto Sunday, will open against lire Black Hawks, with Cheevers getting the next two assign- ments in Minnesota and New York.

"I mean really in love all 40 men. It's quite a feeling." Csonka is called a superstar. So are Dolphin quarterback Bob and wide receiver Paul Warfield. The Zonk, as he's known around Miami, politely refuses the billing. "This is not a team built on he said. "True, we have some gifted athletes, but we think and work as a men striving as one. Our policy is equal rights for all no playing favorites." After their 27-24 victory in double overtime at Kansas City Saturday, the Dolphins ap- proach a new plateau for the six-year-old franchise. On Sun- day, they play the world cham- pion Baltimore Colts for the American Conference title and a berth in the Super Bowl at New Orleans against the Dallas-S'an Francisco victor. Csonka knows he'll have a tight with the Colts. "Baltimore has been in this spot he said. "They've gone all the way and won the Super Bowl. That should make them the favorites. We don't have any Super Bowl illusions. The game against the Colts will be close and rough, but we'll end up one ahead." ;aid linebacker Ed Beard, the captain of the units. "And I iiean in all my seven seasons frith the M9ers." But the '49ers suffered no in- .erceptions or lost fumbles against Washington.

"I'm getting a pretty good spiral with the snowballs, Kapp snid by telephone from his movie sot. "But you throw loo many spirals and you get inter- cepled. Kapp, two years ago voted the outstanding player in the Na- tional Football Ixxigne, is taking time oft from his bar in Vancou- ver lo shoot his first movie. iUonmvhile, his lawyer is wran- r'infi with the NFL over the le- i i of his non-stsndard con- known as a im'inor.indum of with lhc Now England N'KL commKsioiM'i- Ite- ello has ruled that Kapp will remain ineligible until he signs an orthodox contract with foot- ball's modified version of the reserve clause. The ruling Ins kept the 33-year-old quarterback out of action for a season, and unless it is overturned it will sideline him for Rood. SM1ILAR TO FOOTBALL So here is Kapp, playing an Indian returning to his native land to die, shooting scenes near the top of a freezing mountain for the forthcoming television movie Climb an Angry Mountain. The life, he noted, isn't that differ- ent from football. "Instead of getting chased by linebackers I'm bumping into he said. "Today I was cut going through a win- dow. I'm getting my contact that way." A spokesman for Warner Brothers, co-producer of the film with NBC, said Climb an Angry Mountain, with Fess Par- ker and Stella Stevens, was the pilot for a proposed series. Kapp said Ire found the acting a challenge and "an honest day's work." But he added: ''I still consi- der myself a football player, al- though Mr. Rozelle doesn't." Passed up by NFL teams after he led California to the Rose Bowl in 1930, Kapp starred with British Columbia Lions in the Canadian Football League, then moved lo Minnesota where he piloted the Vikings to the NFL championship. Tlwugh critics compared his passes to wounded birds, Kapp was named the league's Most Valua- ble Player. Two years and two contract disputes later, he is on the side- lines.

(AP) Larry Jones, in his first year as head coach of the Florida State Uni- versity football team, would have been happier if Monday's Fiesta Bowl had ended 34 sec- onds sooner. "I don't feel that there's a loser in a game like Jones commented following the post-season inaugural game, which his Seminoles lost 45-38 to Arizona State University Sun Devils. "It's really too bad that the game didn't end in a tie." The score was 38-38 in the closing minutes. But, with 34 seconds left on the clock, sopho- more halfback Woody Green scored his third touchdown of (lie afternoon on a one-yard plunge to lead the Devils to the 45-38 victory. The game was tied four: times, and the lead bounced back and fourth eight times. ASU managed to score six touchdowns against FSU.
