Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 4, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE Ht-RALD 13 JOEY SHACKLEFORD (40) PUTS UP A SCREEN AGAINST VIKING CFL may get a new look Sweeping rule changes proposed HAMILTON (CP) A report advocating sweeping changes in Canadian Football League rules will be aired by the league's rules committee during a meeting Tuesday at the American Football Coaches Association annual gathering in Washington, D.C. CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur said Friday the league has been inclined in the past to be conservative in its thinking regarding rule changes but that there is no guarantee the committee will adopt the recommendations per se. Some of the changes to be considered are: Eleven man lineups instead of 12; One or two point op- tional conversions, replacing the single point convert after touch downs; Runbacks of successful field goals that would nullify the three points scored; Blocking on punts and field goals; Rosters increased to 33 LCI girls win, Magrath loses REGINA (CP) Sixteen teams representing high schools in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta started play Friday in the 5th Annual Sodbuster Basketball Tournament. Four games were played in each of the girls and boys events with the winners mov- ing to the championship finals today and the losers com- peting in the consolation event. In the girls' games, Moose Jaw's Vanier High School trounced the team from Neelin High School at Brandon 53-12, Regina's Sheldon Williams Collegiate edged Winnipeg's Westwood High School 32-29, Centra! Collegiate of Regina dumped Saskatoon's Nutana Collegiate 47-34 and Lethbridge Collegiate over- powered Martin Collegiate of Regina 40-25. In the boys' event Win- nipeg's Dakota High School swamped Central Collegiate 51-29, Martin defeated Nutana 62-54, Westwood outscored Regina's O'Neill High School 75-36, and Neelin beat Alber- ta's Magrath High School 45- 34. players from 32, adding another Canadian. 36 Proposals Gaudaur conceded the above rule changes were among 36 the rules committee will discuss in Washington .during the league's annual safari to the AFCA meetings, held in conjunction with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) meetings. However, he refused to elaborate further, adding that "by the time these recommendations get to the committee they have been laundered through all levels of local clubs." He said all nine CFL clubs will be "totally involved" in the Jan. 7 meetings, "so it is premature for me to comment on the proposed rule changes at this time." Gaudaur is chairman of the eight man rules committee. The rule changes, even if accepted by the rules com- mittee, will not become law until they get approval at the GFL's annual meeting in February. The annual meeting in Toronto will vote on the rules committee report and either accept or rejct the recommendations but may not debate changes.. The 11-man team, similar to United States football, would entail dropping one player from each of the offensive and defensive teams. Previous deliberations on the subject have proposed eliminating the slotback from the offence, but following commissioner Gaudaur's ef- forts to provide entertaining football the committee this time around is considering dropping one of the interior linemen. This would leave the teams with one less man on the field but the number of potential pass receivers would remain at six, sparking efforts to open up offensive play. Under existing rules, the team scoring a touchdown scrimmages on its opponent's 10 yard line with the inten- tion of placekicking, passing or running the ball into the end zone for the one point conversion. Blocking on both punt and field goal returns would be allowed from the waist up in the proposed rule changes with the current five yard restraining area still intact.

Juvenile League -HOCKIY TONIGHT, SAT., JAN. p.m. HENDERSON ICE CENTRE HIGH RIVER JUVENILES VS LETHBRIDGE MIDGET ELKS SUNDAY, JAN. 5th P.M. HENDERSON ICE CENTRE TABER LETHBRIDGE JUVENILES WARRIORS Adults Students 30C Children 23C Fry furious despite comeback which almost won 57-56 game By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A last-minute comeback which almost pulled the game out of the fire was not enough to satisfy University of Lethbridge Pronghorns' coach Robin Fry on Friday night. Down 57-50 with just 40 seconds remaining, the locals came back for three quick baskets and almost stole the ball to get a shot at the game- winner before losing 57-56 to University of Victoria Vikings. But the late spurt did not impress coach Fry. "I'm really disappointed. The guys didn't even make an effort until the last minute." "They didn't press well, they wouldn't some of them may as well not have been on the said Fry after giving his charges a tongue lashing in the dress- ing room. It was without a doubt the Pronghorns' worst effort of the season, as passes went right through their hands on several occasions, and Vikings picked up many loose balls without being challenged. "We were just lucky Vic- toria wasn't playing well, or they would have blown us off the court." The loss drops the U of L record to 2-5 in Canada West Basketball League play, while the Vikings are now alone in first with a 5-2 log. Four of the locals' losses have come by a total of 11 points, but coming close doesn't show up in the stan- dings. They are now faced with merely playing the role of spoilers unless they can win tonight and again twice next weekend at home against University of Alberta Golden Bears. In all fairness, the Pronghorns were playing their first league contest without the services of forward Curt Wolsey, who was forced to leave the team after the first semester due to personal reasons. And the other two Pronghorn leaders both pick- ed up ankle injuries during the game. Richard Fogge, the league's leading scorer, sprained his ankle early in the game, and was limping noticeably whenever he was on the floor after that. And Phil Letham missed most ot the last two minutes after injuring his ankle. Still, it was Fogge who sparked the late rally which .almost pulled it out. The youngster swished a 15-foot jump shot with 36 seconds left, and then stole the ball on the in-bounds pass and fed Roger Baldry for another two points. The Pronghorns got a tur- nover on an offensive foul with 25 seconds to go, and it was Foggo with another jumper who made the score 57-56 with 15 seconds showing. In a last-ditch attempt, the Pronghorns knocked the ball loose from a Viking guard seconds later, but the visitors recovered the loose ball and held on until the final buzzer. Both clubs showed the effects of a one-month Christ- mas break throughout the con- test, which Victoria led 23-20 at the half. The visitors extended their lead to 31-22 early in the se- cond half, and maintained a six or seven-point lead for most of the final 15 minutes. Expo films on Monday Baseball in January? Reed Spencer of Lethbridge cannot see anything wrong with it. Spencer, long one of the finest young minor baseball coaches in the city, has been con- ducting baseball clinics every Monday evening since early fail. This Monday night at at Assumption School he will show a series of films on baseball. Spencer received the films courtesy of the Montreal Expos and says that they are ex- cellent. He didn't say that anyone interested was welcome. However, Spencer has never been one to turn anyone away from learning more about his favorite sport. Jim Duddridge paced the winners with 23 points while Lome Dakin hooped 14. Foggo, whose injury kept him off the scoresheet in the first half, came back with 12 points in the second to tie for the team leadership with Lauren Edlund. Letham add- ed 10 points and Baldry had eight for the Pronghorns. The locals shot a miserable 29% from the floor, as even normally-deadly Letham hit on only four of his 21 shots. Victoria hit on 44% of their tries. The taller Vikings out- rebounded the Pronghorns 43- 32, but were forced into 36 tur- novers compared with only 24 errors by Fry's club. Edlund had 12 boards in a losing cause while Dave Mulcahy picked off 11 to lead Victoria. The University of Victoria Vikettes made it a clean sweep for the coast clubs when they knocked off the female Pronghorns 63-45. The taller Vikettes out- rebounded the locals 54-36 as they built up a 31-20 halftime lead and pulled the last ten minutes for the win. The Pronghorns had narrowed the margin to eight points early in the second half, but Victoria began mov- ing the ball well against the U of L zone defence and pulled away. Edna Ritchie led the Vikettes with 22 big points WINNIPEG (CP) Five players were unanimous choices for the Western Canada All-Star teams an- nounced Friday and based on a poll of coaches in their divisions.

SCt WINNIPEG (CP) -TheSo- viet Union scored four unan- swered goals in the third period here Friday night to defeat Sweden 6-2, setting the stage for a title-deciding game Sunday in the world junior hockey tournament. Canada and the Soviets, who meet at noon MST Sunday, are both undefeated in four games and Soviet coach Yuri Morozov said he expects their meeting to feature heavy physical contact. "I expect the game will be very interesting and play will be very exciting. Canada is strong but Canadian players will find it Morozov said. Sweden holds third place in the tournament with two wins and two losses, followed by Czechoslovakia with one win and a tie, Finland with a tie and the winless United States. Czechoslovakia's first win of the six-team round-robin tournament came Friday night, a 5-0 victory over winless United States at Bloomington, Minn. Zinetula Bilyaletdinov led the Soviet scoring attack with two goals, and the other goals were by Boris Chuchin, Sergei Abramov, Victor Vakrushev and Sergei Babinov. SWEDES START STRONG Kent Nilsson and Dag Bred- burg scored for the .Swedes, who dominated play until a rash of penalties midway through the third period allowed the Soviets to pump four goals past Swedish net- minder Jake Andersson.

Steve extends his thanks to ell who helped make this achieve- ment possible. Sttvt Daku while Les Lilja had 12 for the Pronghorns and sister Lori chipped in with eight. Two other Canada West men's clubs went down to defeat Friday night as well, but they were both in exhibi- tion games as the rest of the league schedule doesn't get going until next Friday. University of Calgary Dinosaurs had a 29-28 lead at halftime, but wound up on the short end of a 56-55 score to Brandon Bobcats in Calgary. Lyle Leslie led Calgary with 16 points while Tom Bishop added 14 and Ted Hellard hooped 10. University of Saskatchewan Huskies sagged in the second half after trailing only 40-39 at the midway mark, and dropped an 84-73 decision to University of North Dakota Tetons in Saskatoon. Meanwhile, Steve Pettifer notched 27 points to lead UBC Thunderbirds to a 98-62 exhibi- tion win over U. of Regina Cougars at Vancouver. HOOP SHOTS it has been a heart-breaking season so far for Fry, who did a great job in turning a group with only one player over 6'3" into a club which cannot be taken lightly the four close losses came by margins of three, two, five, and one point. newcomers Max Zaugg and Ross Blackmer were dressed and on the bench but Fry did not use them he had threaten- ed to dress them in only warm-ups with no uniforms underneath in order to resist the temptation to stick them in with only one workout un- der their belts. SPORT FANS Here's an amazing fact... did you know tha the Montreal Canadian have missed making the playoffs in the Nationa Hockey League only five times in the last 50 years The only times the Canadiens failed to make the playoffs since 192' have been 1926, '36, '40 '48 and 70. Here's a football oddf ty many of the mos successful pro footbal coaches over the years like Vince Lombard! George Allen, Pau Brown, Hank Stram Chuck Knox never in their lives played one game of pro footbal themselves. Here's an oddity there were once two Cotton Bowl, footbal games played the same year and the same day.. on January 1, 1947, one Cotton Bowl was played in Dallas, Tex., between Arkansas and LSU, and on the same day, a game also called the Cotton Bowl was played in Greensboro, N.C., between Richmond and Norfolk oddly enough, both games ended in a tie. I bet you didn't know that for value and perfor- mance you'can't beat our 17.95 snow plow retreads. They carry the same guarantee as brand new ires.
