The Western All-Stars from Calgary were the miracle workers Friday as they scored a come-from-behind upset vic- tory, over Raymond All-Stars to capture the 23rd annual tournament. Western's Jim Watson took a pass deep in the corner with only two seconds remaining on the clock and casually swished it through the hemp to give his team the 66-65 win. The All-Stars from the cow- town had trailed throughout the game, their fifth of the day. but for the second game in a row they came to life with only minutes remaining and moved ahead to win the game. The Western All-Stars suf- fered only one defeat in the two-day tourney, that coming at the hands of Raymond in the opening round on Thur- sday. Raymond was hampered by the absence of two of their main stars. Phil and Tim Tollestrup. Both boys were in Montana participating in another tournament. Not only did Watson win the game with his last minute heroics but he was also the Stars second top score with 12 points in the final game. Peter Ireland led the team with 14 points and Bill Lathrop added 10. High man for Raymond, who were leading 36-28 at half time, was Wally Tollestrup with 18 points. Don Atwood was next in line with 14 and Gary Williams hooped 12. The Allan Tollestrup Memorial Trophy for the tour- nament's most valuable player went to Wally Tollestrup. Wally's father presented the award. It is the third time a Tollestrup has won the trophy, with Phil and Tim Tollestrup both winning it in previous tournaments. The All-Star team consisted of Gary Williams off the Ray- mond squad, brothers Jim and Bill Lathrop from the Western All-Stars, Robert Hansen from Doug's and Clarence Anulung of Hoska Pix's. Recapping the entire tour- nament. Friday.

A special presentation was made after the final game to Dave Leishman, a long-time referee and basketball fan, recognizing his many years of service in the sport. Western All-Stars reached the final via a thrilling 71-65 win over the Pix's. The Stars, who trailed 39-32 at the half, didn't move into the lead until the final 14 minutes, but once there they stayed ahead.

In Raymond's only other game of the day they defeated the Pix's 82-70 in a game that was a lot closer than many felt it would be. The Raymond quintet was nursing a 70-67 lead with only three minutes remaining but John Jasiukiewicz went to work and fed two pin-point passes to Wally Tollestrup and Gary Williams and suddenly Raymond had a seven point cushion. Tollestrup continued his hot hand, leading the winners with 30 points. Williams was next in line with 24. Clarence Anulung was tops for the Pix's with 15. Doug's of Lethbridge was eliminated from play when they dropped a 79-71 decision to the West All-Stars. The Stars led 42-35 at the half and successfully main- tained that edge throughout the remainder of the game. Bill Lathrop was top scorer for the Stars with 18 while Glen Schuler registered 18 for the losers and Dave Preus added 16 more. At 9.30 a.m. the All-Stars dropped Cascades 106-79. led by the 24 point outburst of Jim Watson. The Stars led 56-44 at half time and were never in trouble.

Allred was leading Makoi with 15 points at the time and Bill Lathrop had 12 for the Stars. Three players received honorable mention as All- Stars. They were Hugh Phelan of the Pix's, Marty Allred of Makoi and John Jasiukiewicz of Raymond. REBOUNDS Doug's team holds the record for the most tournament wins with six their last victory was in 1971 Ray Perrott of the Roska squad had a rare injury occur he jumped up for a rebound and hit his head on the boards, sending blood flowing through his blonde hair the fans, over 700 for the final two games, were solidly behind Raymond throughout the final but some switched sides when the All-Stars pulled their stunning recovery It was a toss up who worked harder at the tournament, Doug Clark tour- nament director or his son Cam Cam was the official go-for for the tourney whenever anything was need- ed Cam would go for it... the vast majority of the games were of the highest calibre as the teams entered in the tourney were fairly evenly matched.

Joe Kapp stirred things up in NFL NEW YORK (AP) Drop- ping a live mouse in a roomful of debutantes, and dropping the question of Joe Kapp to National Football League owners accomplishes about the same thing. They scatter in all direc- tions. Only a handful of NFL ex- ecutives are willing to guess the possible ramifications of the United Slates District Court, suit brought in San Francisco by Kapp. a former quarterback who refused to sign a standard player contract. Most say "no refer questions to NFL com- missioner Pete Rozelle for a "no comment." or just aren't available tor comment. The ruling in the Kapp suit struck down the NFL's reserve clause, the so-called Rozelle contained in the standard player parts of the player draft. The reserve clause binds a player to the team with which he has a contract for one year after that contract expires. The Rozelle rule says the team a tree agent joins must pay compensation to the team he left, with Rozelle deciding the compensation if the teams disagree. If there was one thing NFL officials could agree on other than "no it was that the results of the suit will be appealed. That's probably one reason why they're reluc- tant to offer more than a grunting reaction. "Our only position would have to come from the league said Don Klosterman, vice president and general manager of Los Angeles Rams. "We are certain the case will be appealed. The league has the. right to appeal, and we, as a club, would have no comment until it is ul- timately decided." Richard Gordon, a former astronaut who orbited the moon and splashed down as executive vice president of New Orleans Saints, called the ruling "a basic attack on the structure of professional football." "This is really a league matter and not one for the teams lo'deal with in- dividually. I'd hate to have a bunch of Catfish Hunters running really be in trouble." George Allen, vice president, coach and general manager of Washington Redskins, said he "hated to see that decision because it won't help could hurt football." Cincinnati Bengals" coach Paul Brown also drew the allusion to baseball pitcher Jim (Catfish) Hunter who became a free agent last week.

Colo. (AP) President Ford has signed into law a bill formally opening the Little League baseball program to participa- tion by girls. Press secretary Ron Nessen. announcing the action Thursday, said the league's federal charter is changed to refer to "young people" rather than boys. In ad- dition, the law deletes a reference to the promo- tion of "m.inhrmri" among players. The league sought the changes after being con- fronted with a rash of lawsuits seeking to open the program to girls. Esposito. Bos Orr. 60S Perreaull. Bui Lafleur. Mil. Dionne. Det Clarke.
