The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuwday, January I, 1974 THE LCTHtHIOOE HERALD Simpson, Miami safeties top polls He's on his way Johnny Miller stows his golf bag in his station wagon for a trip to Phoenix, Ariz., Monday after being declared winner of the shortened Bing Crosby National Pro-Am golf tourney at Pebble Beach. The final round was cancelled because of unplayable conditions and Miller was awarded three-fourths of the normal prize. He competes in the Phoenix Open starting Thursday. Blues seek playoff spot MONTREAL (CP) St. Louis Blues haven't missed the National Hockey League playoffs since they joined the league as an expansion team for the 1967-68 season. And today, by blending the ingredients of one established star, a pair of journeymen performers and a fine amateur draft choice, the Blues hope to keep that record intact this year. Centre Garry Unger at 26 is the established star and the spearhead of the St. Louis at- tack. Since moving to the Blues in a four-player trade from Detroit Red Wings three years ago, linger has scored 109 goals and added 105 assists for 214 points in 219 games with St. Louis. He is the current leader among active players in consecutive games played having appeared in 440 without missing an appearance. Unger has never scored fewer than 24 goals in a season since becoming an NHL regular in 1968-69, and netted 42 in 1969-70 with Detroit and 41 last season with St. Louis. Forwards Lou Angotti and Glen Sather fall into the jour- neymen category. Angotti, who will be 36 Jan. 16, has made St. Louis his fifth stop in the NHL and, with 10 goals and 18 assists in -35 games, is well on his way to his best season. His previous high was in 1967-68 when he scored 12 goals and had 37 assists for 49 points with Philadelphia Flyers. Sather, 30, went to the Blues from New York Rangers last October. Since joining the Blues, Sather has collected 27 points with nine goals and 18 assists. He never had more than 26 points in any previous season. Five of Sather's nine goals have been game-winners, while Angotti has three. Kittens beat LCI Queens The Catholic Central Kittens defeated the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Clipper Queens 29-17 in a city girls' basketball playoff game Monday night. This was the initial game of the city girls' round-robin playoff series which also in- cludes the Winston Churchill Griffins. Each team will play four games to determine the city champions. In last night's contest, Kathy Wilson led the Kittens with a 10-point performance while Davlyn Last hooped six in a losing cause. The same two clubs will meet again next Thursday night. The fine draft choice is goaltender John Davidson. He was the Blues first-round choice in the 1973 amateur draft from Calgary Centen- nials. He is one of few goalkeepers who has made the direct jump to the NHL from junior ranks. In 21 games to date, Davidson has allowed 53 goals for a 2.53 goals against average and a record of nine wins, seven losses, and five ties. Southern Methodist sentenced SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The Southwest Conference put Southern Methodist Universi- ty on one year's probation Monday for giving cash bonuses of to to members of the football team's specialty units for making big plays. In taking the action, the con- ference also endorsed the re- cent move by Dr. Paul Har- din, president of SMU, in which he relieved Dave Smith of his duties as director of athletics and reduced his contract as head football coach from four years to one year Dr. Hardin had also said that members of the athletic staff over-paid players for selling football tickets back to the athletic department. The cash incentive bonuses involved paying non- scholarship athletes for key plays such as fumble recoveries and key tackles. The conference said it would continue to monitor SMU's athletic program dur- ing the year's probation. The penalty does not carry any sanctions, meaning SMU will not be barred from post- season competition or tele- vision appearances. The SWC met in conjunction with the National Collegiate Athletic Association. (NCAA) convention, which officially opened Monday. An NCAA spokesman indicated the na- tional organization probably would go along with the SWC's action against Southern Methodist. YALE DIES VANCOUVER (CP) U.S. National ski team member Kent Yale, 20, of Gilford, N.H., died Monday of injuries suffered in a skiing accident on Whistler Mountain Sunday. Officials said he died of head injuries. He was considered one of the top amateur downhill racers in the United States. NEW YORK (AP) Record-shattering 0. J. Simpson of Buffalo Bills was a unanimous choice and Miami's dazzling twin safeties, Dick Anderson and Jake Scott, headed six Dolphins named to the National Football League all- pro team by The Associated Press today. Wide receiver Paul War- field, running back Larry Csonka, guard Larry Little and placekicker Garo Yepre- mian were the other Miami players selected to the 23-man square by a panel of sports writers and broadcasters covering the 26 NFL teams. Simpson, the NFL's offen- sive player of the year who set a rushing record with yards for the season, was named on every ballot cast in the poll. And the Bills' offen- sive line, a key part of Simp- son's success, was represented by O. J.'s room- mate, guard Reggie McKenzie. Joining McKenzie on the offensive line were Little, San Francisco '49ers centre Forest Blue and tackles Ron Vary of Minnesota Vikings and Rayfield Wright of Dallas Cowboys, all repeaters from last year's all-pro team. Warfield caught 11 touchdown passes during the season and Csonka churned out yards rushing. Yepremian produced 113 points for the Dolphins including 25 of 37 attempted field goals. The only rookie selected to the squad was tight end Charles Young of Philadelphia Eagles, who finished with 55 catches in his first pro season. John who led Los Angeles Rams to a 12-2 record, best in the club's history, was named the quar- terback. Minnesota, which will op- pose Miami in Sunday's Super Bowl, had two players besides Vary named to the squad, both on the defensive line. They were tackle Alan Page and defensive end Carl Eller. The other side of the defen- sive line is manned by Atlanta Falcons end Claude Humphrey and tackle Mean Joe Greene of Pittsburgh Steelers. Isiah Robertson of Los Angeles and Washington Redskins' Chris Hanburger are the team's outside linebackers with Willie Lanier of Kansas City Chiefs mann- ing the middle. Completing the team in the defensive secondary with safeties Anderson, who led the league with eight intercep- tions, and Scott, were corner- backs Robert James of Buf- falo and Willie Brown of Oakland Raiders. The NFL's two conferences were just about evenly represented on the all-pro squad with 12 players coming from AFC teams and 11 from the NFC. That was a change from last year when 15 of the 23 players chosen came from the NFC. PLANS RETIREMENT SANTA FE, Argentina (AP) World middleweight boxing champion Carlos Monzor. said Monday he will quit after defending the title Feb. 9 at Paris against welterweight champion Jose Napoles of Mexico. Monzon, 31, won the world crown in 1971 by knock- ing out Italian Nino Benvenuti in 12 rounds in Rome.
