The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Tuesday, January I, 1974 InkMwttrtlM NHL AND WHA HOCKEY SPECIAL Fir Dttiils Comict ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 321-3201 The Herald Sports LETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD.

"This is shabby the normally quiet spoken coach of the Vikings said. "This is the Super Bowl. It's not just another pickup game. Our facilities look like some- thing the kids would have for a Saturday afternoon game." Grant issued his heated statement after viewing facilities at a high school stadium where his National Conference championship football team has been quart- ered for a week. The American Conference champion Miami Dolphins were assigned the more luxurious quarters of Hous- ton Oilers, within walking distance of the hotel where they are living. Grant indicated planned for his protest to go to the Commissioner Pete Rozelle who still is in New York. Jim Kensil, Rozelle's No. 1 assistant, said the Vikings would be given the choice of moving to Rice Stadium, if they chose, but added: "That would be impractical." Kensil said the policy of the NFL always has been to give the city's pro facilities to the team representing the same conference. Thus, Miami had the preference because it is an AFC team, as are the Oilers. "When the Vikings played in New Orleans in 1970, they had the facilities of the New Orleans Kensil said. "In Los Angeles the Washington Redskins had the facilities of the Rams last year." Grant was bitter in his criti- cism of training facilities. "The field is excellent, but the locker room is terrible. There is no place to hang clothes. It is just one big room with no division for coaches and players. We have seven coaches and they have to use one table. "There are no sleds or dum- mies on the field for our men. This is not true in the case of Miami, which has all of the fa- cilities it needs." The Minnesota coach said the Vikings' schedule had been disrupted by the pre- Super Bowl arrangements and that the team could suffer as a result. Asked what he planned to do about it, Grant replied sharply: "There is nothing I am sup- posed to do about it. This is a National Football League problem. It is Pete Rozelle's problem. They have had a year to get ready for this game and this is what we wind up with." The Vikings, as a whole, were grim and intent while the champion Dolphins appeared loose and confident in their full dress rehearsal Monday, starting the week- long training. "Four years ago we came into the game with a carnival said Gary Lar- sen, 6-foot-6, 255-pound defen- sive tackle in Minnesota's sea- soned front four. "But it's dif- ferent this time. We all have learned to comprehend what this game means." Miami's remarkably relax- ed attitude was explained by Jim Langer, the Dolphins' 253- pound offensive centre. "We're not much of a whoop-and-holler he said. "We have all worked hard to get here. Now we all feel we have just one more job to we can do it." The game, climax of the Na- tional Football League season, will be played before an expected sellout crowd of in Rice Stadium. Kickoff time is p.m. EST. Miami coach Don Shula, sending the Dolphins into the Super Bowl for the third straight time and seeking his second consecutive victory, insisted that there was no chance that his players had grown fat and cocky from con- tinued success. "The fact we are a touchdown-favorite doesn't mean a he said. "I remember taking another team into the Super Bowl as 17-point favorite and we got our behinds whipped." The reference was to 1969 when Baltimore Colts, with Shula coaching, were heavy favorites over New York Jets. The Jets won 16-9. Shula expressed respect for his Minnesota opponents, par- ticularly the Vikings' scram- bling quarterback, Fran Tar- kenton. "Tarkenton poses all sorts of problems for Shula said. Look out! It looks as though Doug Mohns (2) of Atlanta Flames is going to retaliate against Mike Pelyk (4) of the Toronto Maple Leafs during National Hockey League action in Toronto Monday night. In actual fact, Mohns twists in the air after receiving a solid body check by Pelyk in first period play. Tarkenton, Griese reach Super Bowl by own way HOUSTON (AP) Scram- bling Fran Tarkenton of Min- nesota Vikings and poised Bob Griese of Miami Dolphins were born on the same day but they took different roads to get to the same place Sunday; the eighth annual Super Bowl game. Tarkenton, with the reputa- tion as the premier scrambler in the National Football League, has long been an es- tablished pro quarterback but is making his first appearance in the championship. Griese went to the Dolphins during the expansion stages and started a steady climb to prominence that has parallel- ed Miami's rise to three straight Super Bowl berths. Scrambling is what oppos- ing teams think about most when they think about Tarken- ton. Stopping Tarkenton's madcap gyrations Sunday will be a major factor in Miami's title bid.

Jim Toone led the Cougars with a solid 19-point outing while teammate Dave Remington chipped in with 16. Ron Harker and Tim Rollingson notched 10 points apiece in a losing cause. The "A" consolation final went to Catholic Central Cougars of Lethbridge, who slipped past the Raymond Comets 45-44. Bill Dudas hooped 11 points to pace the Cougars while Guy Pomohac added another 10. Jim Ralph and Tom Myndio Knight sits in third SASKATOON (CP) Wendy Martin of the Universi- ty of Alberta Pandas leads the Canada West University Athletic Association Women's Basketball League in points but Liz Silcott of the Universi- ty of British Columbia Thunderettes has the best points average.

Victoria's Edna Ritchie wai the top rebonnder, pulling down an average of 1) a fame. chalked up 14 points apiece in the loss. Meanwhile the Raymond Mustangs came up with a slim 39-37 victory over the Cardston Wildcats to earn themselves the "B" boys' crown.

The "B" consolation final went to the Magrath Eagles, who defeated the CCHS Flyers of Lethbridge.

At the conclusion of the two- day event, Ralph West of Cardston, Koskoski of CCHS, Rollingson of Magrath and Ray Romeril of Raymond were selected to the "B" all- star team while Rick Bracka was named the most valuable player.

Ballard seeks NBA franchise TORONTO (CP) Harold Ballard, president of Maple Leaf Gardens, says he has applied for a National Basket- ball Association franchise. Ballard said he expects some reaction to his bid before NBA meetings in Seat- tle Jan. IS. "If there is any chance of our getting a franchise for next season, I'll go to Seattle and make a said Ballard. "I'll know this week where we stand." The Gardens has staged five home fames of the NBA Buf- falo Braves with four more scheduled in an attempt to test fan reaction, crowds have averaged less than but Ballard said: Attendance would increase if we had our own team, a club where the people couM get to know the players. ranked National Conference quarterback during the regular season, finally is lay- ing to rest a long standing rumor: You can't win with a scrambler. "It was the greatest lie ever perpetrated on the pro foot- ball Tarkenton said. "I don't want to be known as a scrambler. I don't want to be known as a loser. I just want to be known as a winner." Tarkenton completed 61 per cent of his passes for IS touch- downs and threw only seven interceptions during the 1973 regular season. He'll have his work cut out for him Sunday; Miami led the American Con- ference in pass defence. Opposing Miami Coach Don Shula recognizes the danger: "The biggest fear about Tarkenton is that he'll take a busted play and make a big gainer out of it. We'll do a lot of work this week on covering the rushing lanes with the idea of containment." Tarkenton presents a special problem to any defence. With most quarter- backs, the idea is to force him out of the pocket. With Tarkenton, the Dolphins want to keep him in it. Tarkenton will throw the bomb to John Gilliam as he did for three touchdowns in the divisional playoff against Washington. The Vikings, who led the NFC in pass- completions average and fewest interceptions thrown, also use flare passes to rookie running back Chuck Foreman. Griese also enters the game as the second-ranked quarter- back in his division. "He's a Shula said. "He's one of the most unselfish men I've ever known. "He doesn't care how he moves the ball, just so it moves. The one thing he has on his mind constantly is to put seven on the board." Far more than merely the man who hands off to Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris, Griese's ace is a strong, if sel- dom-used, passing attack. He completed 53 per cent of his passes in the regular season for 17 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. Griese goes into each game well prepared. "He attacks a defence as if he has the oppo- nents' game plan taped on his a scout said of Griese. But Tarkenton will be the marked man in Sunday's game. The Dolphin defenders have seen the horror films of Tarkenton in action. Miami linebacker Doug Swift, recall- ing a pre-season loss to the Vikings, said: "They didn't play him until the second half and that's when they beat us." Chances are Tarkenton will play a full fame Sunday. CENTS BUY KNIGHT CALGARY (CP) Randy Knight, a centre and left winger from the Winnipeg Clubs has been acquired by the Calfarv Centennials Mavericks capture first win of season The Lethbridge Correc- tional Institute Mavericks earned their first victory of the 1973-74 City Broomball League by edging the Knight Clubbers 4-3 Sunday night. V. Across The Mountain led the Mavericks to their first win of the season with a three- goal performance while team- mate D. Mills chipped in with a single. Warren Vaile notched two goals and John Jardine one for the Clubbers, who trailed 4-1 at one point of the game. Meanwhile league-leading Welterlich remained unbeaten in league play as they chalked up their 12th consecutive vic- tory in another contest. 'Welterlich had their hands full though as they slipped past Herman's Upholstery 1-0 in the hard-fought battle. John Vaselenak notched the only marker scored in the game while Joe Snopek registered the shutout. Two goals by Willy Brees propelled the Jaycees to an easy 4-0 win over Local 740. Bob Rutten and Keane Aldous chipped in with singles while Don Bilosir was credited with the shutout. The Red Devils earned a slim 1-0 decision over the Fire Department with the aid of Willy Krampl's single marker. Frank Kocsinko picked up his sixth shutout of the season with the win. Fred Anderson tallied with oniy seconds remaining in the game to give Ace Building a 2- 2 stalemate with Southern Signs. Roger Rombough scored the other marker for Ace while Bert Girad and Tex Wiebe replied for the Signs. In the final encounter of the evening, Lethbridge Hotel and Sunburst Ceramics fought to a scoreless tie.
