Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Clear weather for big one Sunday San Francisco takes run at money SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A high-stakes test of strength between explosive offences and shock-proof d e f e n ce unfolds Sunday with San Francisco 49ers making their first run for the big money against Dallas's often-frustrated Cowboys. The 49era and Cowboys go at each other at 3 p.m. MST for the National Football Conference Crown in a fight to the finish, with a sudden-death overtime if needed. At stake in the game is a winner's share of $8,500 per player and a shot at the $15,000 winner's share in the Super Bowl opposite the victor of the American Football Conference title game between Oakland and Baltimore. The NFC finale pits a potent San Francisco attack, led by venerable quarterback Jo h n Brodie, against the conference's toughest defensive club down the stretch. Rain fell Friday night on old Kezar Stadium, from which the 49ers will move to Candlestick Park next season, but Sunday's weather forecast was for mostly clear skies with temperatures in the 50s. As both teams tapered off Lingering bitterness in Colt-Raider tussle OVER THE TOP-Nebraska back Jef* Kinney travels the high road to score a touchdown the hard way In last night's Orange Bowl in Miami. Nebraska downed ISU 17-12 a� upsets featured the New Year's Day bowl games in the United States. Notre Dame ends Texas winning streak Bowl battles featured by upsets By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nebraska outslugged Louisiana State in the Orange Bowl Friday night to pass the corpses of previously top-ranked Texas and Ohio State, and coach Bob Devaney said: "I don't see how the Pope could vote Notre Dame No. 1." Cornhusker quarterback Jerry Tagge stretched across the LSU goal to give Nebraska a 17-12 victory before a record crowd of 80,699 at Miami in the last of four college football bowl games on New Year's Day. . Nebraska fans yelled, "We're No. 1," knowing top-ranked Texas had fallen to the Irish 24-11 in the Cotton Bowl at Dallas and No. 2 Ohio State was bumped off by Stanford in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, Calif., 27-17. Nebraska had been No. 3 in the national rankings. Losing LSU coach Charlie McClendon agreed that Ne-draska should be handed the national championship. "Nebraska is similar to the Irish," said McClendon, "but the Cornhuskers will wind up No. 1-so they must be better." Elsewhere in New Year's Day bowl action, fourth-ranked Tennessee walloped Air Force 34-13 in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. A new-fangled defence and some old-fashioned opportunism carried Notre Dame to its victory over Texas in the Cotton Bowl, ending the Longhorns' 30-game winning streak., Notre Dame showed Texas a mirror image on defence of the Longhorns' powerful wishbone offence and the innovation paid off with Notre Dame's AU-A-merican quarterback Joe Theis-man passing for one touchdown and running for two others. Texas, which had not lost since the opening game of the 1968 season and had beaten Notre Dame 21-17 in the Cotton Bowl a year ago, fumbled nine times, losing five of them to the fired-up Irish, who went into the game ranked No. 6 in the U.S. Theismann completed nine of 16 passes for 176 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown pitch to Tom Gatewood. His scoring runs came from three and 15 yards out.

Ohio had overcome a 10-0 Stanford lead to overtake the Indians and lead 14-10 at the half. The margin was still 17-13 in the fourth quarter when Plunkett put together an eight-play, 80-yard touchdown march that put Stanford in front. The Buckeyes went to the air and Jack Schultz's interception set up an insurance score for Stanford, making its first Rose Bowl appearance since 1952. In the Orange Bowl, LSU slammed 75 yards to score on the third quarter's final play and take a 12-10 lead over the favored Big Eight champions, as Buddy Lee hit Al Coffee for the touchdown. Tagge ignited Nebraska's go-ahead drive with a 16-yard keeper as the Midwesterners smelted a chance at the top ranking. He fired passes for six yards to Dan Schnedas, nine yards to Johnny Rodgers and 17 to Jeff Kinney. STRETCH DOES IT Kinney's clutch catch put the ball at the LSU five and three plays later Tagge-belted at the o n e -y a r d line-stretched his arms to push the ball into the end zone with 8:50 remaining in the game.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore Colts, spurned by their new American Football Conference colleagues all season, meet Oakland Raiders Sunday in a conference championship game that contains the lingering bitterness of the old AFL-NFL rivalry. Coach Don McCafferty of the Colts, whose team moved from the old NFL to join 10 former AFL teams in the American Conference this season, has quietly tried to squelch thoughts that the clash of former rivals contains the ingredients inherent in previous AFL-NFL combat. But John Madden, the young coach of the Raiders, has proudly waved the AFL banner! and insisted: "This will be just like the American Football League against the National Football League." Centre Bill Curry of the Colts all but agrees: "We came into a new league this season and nobody wanted to see us win the championsiip. And they still don't." McCafferty, meanwhile, has1 tried to tone down that aspect of a game-to be televised by NBC at 12 noon MST-which will send the survivor into the Super Bowl Jan. 17 against the winner of the National Conference title game between Dallas and San Francisco. AFL-NFL, it doesn't mean a thing," McCafferty said. "The only thing we'll be thinking about Sunday is beating another team-nothing else." Neither club is a stranger to post-season competition, both having moved all the way to the Super Bowl previously before losing. The Raiders lost to Green Bay in the second Super Bowl and the Colts bowed to New York Jets in the third Super Bowl. Both teams will be out for a chance at redemption, as well as the $8,500 that goes to each member of the winning team here and a shot at the Super Bowl prize of $15,000. The loser here gets $5,500. The Raiders arrived In snow-covered Baltimore Friday night. A 200-man work crew, aided by 50 trucks, had cleared the field by toiling on New Year's Day to remove the six" inches of snow thai had fallen in an all-night snowstorm. Brodie a winner says Washington A' HOCKEY LETHBRIDGE ARENA SATURDAY, JAN. 2nd - 8:30 p.m. LETHBRIDGE SUGAR KINGS v� EDMONTON MAPLE LEAFS SUNDAY, JAN. 3rd - 2:00 p.m. LETHBRIDGE SUGAR KINGS v� EDMONTON MOVERS ADMISSION PRICES ADULTS S1.2S - STUDENTS .75* with cards ir CHILDREN 28* Advance tickets on tale al Simpsons-Sears Saturday 1-4 p.i SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - There are closer ties between John Brodie and Gene Washington than the chain of touchdown passes which have linked them together during the San Francisco 49ers' drive for their first National Football League championship. The 35-year-old passer snd 23-year-old receiver, who pack an explosive San Francisco attack that will test the Dallas Cowboys' doomsday defense Sunday in the National Confer* ence title game, are former Stanford quarterbacks who room together on the road. "I've known John since I came to Stanford," said Washington who made the shift from thrower to catcher midway through college to make room for a fellow named Plunkett. "I've learned a lot about him -and I've learned plenty from him since then." "Brodie is a winner. He wants to win for the team and he wants to win for himself. He wants to be the best quarterback in football and he wants to be on the best team in football." Brodie won his first passing title in 14 pro seasons as the 49ers stormed to the NFC's Western Division championship. Now, he has a chance to put them on top of the heap for the first time in their 25-year history. The Brodie-Washlngton combination clicked for 12 touchdowns during the regular season. Brodie threw 24 scoring strikes in all and completed per cent of his passes to lead the 49ers' gold rush. Orioles will tour Japan BALTIMORE (AP) - The Baltimore Orioles have ac cepted an invitation to make month-long exhibition tour of Japan next fall. Plans call for the 1970 world series champions to play games against Japanese teams of the Central and Pacific leagues, starting in Tokyo Oct. 23 against the Tokyo Giants, winner." of the Japanese baseball title for the past six seasons. The Giants are owned by the Yomiuri Shimbun, the largest newspaper in Japan, whose president Mitsuo Mutai issued the invitation to the Orioles. Sixty members of the Orioles' organization, i n c 1 u d i n g the wives of players and front office executives, will make the trip. All expenses will be defrayed by the Yomiuri Shimbun. today after a week of intense preparations, t h e 49ers remained slight belling favorites to win the title that has eluded them for 25 years and repulse Dallas' fifth championship bid in as many seasons. Green Bay nipped the Cowboys for the National Football League title in 1966 and 1967 and Cleveland handed them demoralizing setbacks in the 1968 and 1969 divisional playoffs. DEFENCE SOLID This year, the Cowboys haven't had a touchdown scored against them for 21 consecutive quarters. The 49ers will count- on the 35-year-old Brodie, top passer in the NFC, to surmount the Cowboys' defensive might. Brodie, San Francisco's signal caller for 14 seasons, completed 59 per cent of his passes in regular season play for almost 3,000 yards. Half of his 24 touchdown strikes went to Gene Washington, a slim, longball threat who snared 53 passes in ell, averaging 20.8 yards per catch. Dallas quarterback Craig Morton can't match Brodie's figures and his passing has been hampered in recent weeks by a painfully bruised right elbow. But the Dallas running game, paced by rookie Duane Thomas, Is the best in the NFL. San Francisco was No. I In total offence with a per-game average of 321.6 rushing-passing yards. Dallas was third at 317.8. The Dallas defence, anchored by perennial all-pro tackle Bob Lilly, was the conference's fourth best statistically, four pegs above the 49ers. Cents dump Tigers Kogler stars By THE CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oil Kings and Es-tevan Bruins will have to be sharp this weekend if they wish to remain undisputed leaders of the Western Canada Hockey League's two divisions. The Bruins, who meet Saskatoon Blades tonight in BLs-mark, N.D., and again Sunday in Estevan, lead the Eastern division with 41 points. But Flin Flon Bombers, last year's league champions, have been menacing recently and have moved to within one point of the Bruins. The Flin Flon squad will be looking for Estevan to drop at least one game as they try to defeat Regina Pats in Flin Flon tonight and Sunday. Oil Kings, who play Medicine Hat Tigers in Edmonton Sunday, now have only four points over the Calgary Centennials in the Western division. The Cen tenoials stay home tto meet Swift Current Broncos today and Sunday and a double win combined with an Edmonton loss would put them in a tie for first place. Centennials dumped the Tigers 7-1 in Medicine Hat Friday while the other New Year's day game, the Broncos edged the Blades S  4 in Saskatoon. In Medicine Hat, Centennials' goaltender Ed Dyck tost his shutout bid at 5:30 of the third period when Brian Carlin sent a drive sailing into the mesh It was a lacklustre affair for 3,700 fans as Calgary took period leads of 1-0 and 4-0. Allan Rycroft and Alex Kog ler each scored twice while Ron Homenuke, John Sinkpiel and Jim McMasters added single markers. | SPORTS FANS1 I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW by GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD.
