Fans go wild in Leeds United upset LONDON (Reuter) Hundreds of deUrious Colches- ter United soccer fans in- vaded their Layer Road play- ing field after their underdog Fourth-Division team toppled mighty Leeds United Satur- day in the fifth round of Eng- lish Football Association Cup play- Ray Crawford, former Eng- land centre-forward who scored two of Colchester's goals, broke down and cried at the final whistle as he was mobbed by spectators. Colchester's 3-2 victory ranked alongside Walsall's 2-0 defeat of Arsenal in 1933 as the greatest shocks in the 100-year history of the cup competition. Upsets have been common in this fascinating competi- tion, but few can compare with the feat of Colchester, 74 places behind top-dog Leeds in the English League and rated only 500 to 1 for the cup. Crawford, who has scored more than HOfl goals during a 17-year career which brought him an English championship medal with Ipswich Town in 1962, joined Colchester after slipping into the obscurity of non-league football. The burly 34-y e a r -o 1 d centre-forward was confide.it of his ability to score goals against Leeds and boasted earlier (his week: "Leeds United are my rabbits. I can knock in goais against them as easily as a farmer with a shotgun can knock off rabbils in his meadow." Colchester manager Dick Graham had said earlier in the week that it would take a miracle to beat Leeds. After the match he de- clared: "This is Ihc greatest moment in my car- eer. I shall be climbing the castle walls tonight." The Lethbridge Sugar Kings edged one point closer to the league-leading Red Deer Rust- lers as 'they fought to stale- mates in two Alberta Junior Hockey League games on the road over the weekend. Saturday night the Kings played to a 4-4 draw with the Ponoka Stampeders while Sun- day afternoon they picked up a lard-fought 2-2 tie against Red Deer. In Saturday's encounter the applied plenty of pres- ure in the final period but couldn't pot the tie-breaker.' Ponoka led 2-1 after the first period and 4-2 going into the inal 20 minutes before the Kings came alive. The Kings blasted Ponoka Graham Parsons with 38 shots but only Lanny McDonald, George McCrea, Archie McLennan and Joe Hutch were able to find the range. For the Stampeders Dale Booth paced their club with two goals while Ed Lychak and John Simian chipped in with a ;oal apiece. John Davidson in the cage for the Kings turned aside 26 drives during the three per- iods. Ponoka also took 10 of 19 mi- nor penalties called and the teams split the four majors as- sessed. Archie McLennan was the hero Sunday as he scored a power-play goal in'the third per iod to give the Kings the tie The first period ended in a 1-1 draw but the Rustlers took thy his fellow pros as The Man or The King had just won' the Bob Hope Desert Golf Classic, writing an end to the most frus- raling period of his incredible areer. It was1 the 56th tour triumph OT the most popular player the ;ame has ever known, but the "irst in 14 months, the longest drought he has suffered in 16 years. The 41-year-old Palmer won ie tournament in dramatic 'ashion, rolling in an 18-foot }irdie putt on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff with Ray Floyd after squandering a three-stroke lead in the 9tkle- gree temperature. Floyd shot a final-round 67, five under par, to catch him. Palmer managed only a 70 and blew a chance to win it out- right when a poor chip shot killed his opportunity for a birdie four on the 90th hole of the five-day tournament. They went to the first sud- den-death hole tied at 342. Both drove into the left rough. Floyd came out about 15 feet from the pin. Palmer was short, about 18 feet. He stalked the putt knocked it in. "It's all a question of confi- he said. "I just gave it everything I had." Palmer picked up for the victory, putting his all-time money winnings over mil- lion. Floyd collected for second place. Bill Fraser and Al Pollock were the Calgary marksmen. Lealke turned aside 27 shots while Rene Alain, in the Ed- monton nets, kicked out 32. Calgary led 1-0 after the first period but Maple Leafs had taken a 6-4 edge going into final 20 minutes. The Cougars were assessed four of seven minor penalties. Sunday afternoon the Coug- ars had only a small lead in shots but still managed lo dom- inate the game as they de- feated the Leafs 5-2. Bob LeGuilloux scored two goals to pace the Cougars with singles added by Doug Blancy, Al Pollock and John Huber. Dale Bowler scored both Ed- monton goals.
