Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 13, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Mean Joe Greene and Franco lead way NEW ORLEANS (AP) Mean Joe Greene, leader of Pittsburgh Stcclcrs1 feroc'ious front four, finally made an old man's dream eomc true. Not that Franco Harris didn't have something to do with it. After all, a Super Bowl rushing record is not to be overlooked. But in the long run, it was Pittsburgh's front four that ultimately gave the Steclers and their 73-year-old owner, Art Rooney, their first National Football League championship after 42 years of frustration. The Steelers dropped the Vikings 16-6 as Greene, Dwight White, Ernie Holmes and L.C. Greenwood held Minnesota to just 21 yards rushing, making the Vikings the first club to lose three Super Bowl games. If there was any deceptive- ness, it was only in the final score. The six points the Vik- ings got weren't really of their own making. They were the result of a blocked punt. So, in effect, the Steelers defence came up with a shutout. Volleyball The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns' travelled to Calgary over the weekend for the Calgary Men's Open Volleyball Tour- nament, and came home with the Runner Up Trophy. The locals took six of eight games in the preliminary competitions, and then won a semi final match before los- ing out in the final. An Alberta All Star team which will represent the province in the Canada Winter Games took the cham- pionship, beating the Pronghorns 15 3 and 15 8 in the final. The match up was ironic in that Pronghorns' Hugh Harding was playing for .the All Stars. "They've never played a better defensive game, coach Chuck Noll said. "Our defence has been fantastic all season and I think it's appropriate that they should finish things off like they did." They finished off the Vikings not only by shutting off their running game but by turning quarterback Fran Tarkenton back into a scrambler. He'd sort of lost that image in the last season or two. But in chilly, overcast, windswept Tulane Stadium, he nearly lost a few limbs. Tarkenton spent virtually the entire afternoon trying to avoid Greene and his line- mates. Rarely did he have a chance to set up and scout around for a receiver. And when he did throw the ball, the Steelers were usually there to spike it back down his throat, tip it away or intercept, it. Of his 27 passes, only 11 wound up in a team-mate's hands, the end result being 102 of the Vikings' total 123 yards. Tarkenton had praise for the Steelers' front four: "They are a devastating group. They were aggressive and had great penetration." Unlike Tarkenton, Pitts- burgh's Terry Bradshaw usu- ally threw the ball not because he had to but because he wanted to. He completed nine of 14 attempts for 96 yards, four of them coming on a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to tight end Larry Brown that sealed the Vikings' doom. Harris pounded out 158 yards on 34 carries, breaking the Super Bowl records of 33 carries and 145 yards by Miami's Larry Csonka. He also scored the Steelers' first touchdown on a nine-yard sweep in the third quarter. The Steelers were sur- prisingly subdued after the game. "We knew what we could do and we went out on the field and did said Harris. "We're not jumping up and down but we may be, later, when it all sinks in." Andy Russell, who shone at. linebacker before he was side- lined with a pulled hamstring, in the second half, was similarly subdued. "When you expect to do something and you do he said, "there's no shock, just a deep sense of personal accomplishment." Like Harris and the rest of the Steelers, Greene was still riding a euphoric wave' of calm after the victory. "I knew we were going to he said, "But it's still hard to believe, it's going to take a couple of days to sink in. We are undisputed, you know. We are undisputed heroes. That's what we arc." The Steelers first points came on a safety in the second quarter when Tarkenton mis- handled a pitchout and had to recover the fumble in the end zone where he was im- Brandon coach sparks brawl that injures two policemen By THE CANADIAN PRESS Not all the action was on the ice Sunday as New West- minster Bruins battered Brandon Wheat Kings 8-2 in the Western Canada Hockey League. Brandon coach Norm Johnson went into the stands at of the third period after Brandon player Gary Soetaert had been handed a game misconduct for his third fight of the game. Two policemen were in- jured in the fracus that en- sued, involving Soetaert, Johnson, other Brandon players and some fans. Back on the ice, a total of 191 minutes in penalties was handed out including 12 ma- jors and two game miscon- ducts for Brandon, and 11 ma- jors and a game misconduct for New Westminster. In other games Sunday, Saskatoon Blades edged Regina Pats 3-2 and Winnipeg Clubs took a'7-5 come from behind victory over Calgary Centennials. Saturday, Medicine Hat Tigers overwhelmed Flin Flon Bombers 13-1, Edmonton Aquadettes top swimming The Edmonton Aquadettes squeezed past the Calgary Aquabelles B team Saturday to win the right to represent Alberta in swimming in the Canada Winter Games. The best of each province, except for some members of the national team, will swim off during the Games in Lethbridge Feb. 12 14. Carol Stuart of Calgary edg- ed Leslie Ringrose of Ed- monton to win the solo event while the duets winners were Karen Heath and Ringrose, both of the Aquadettes.

The safety, the first in Super Bowl history, was the only scoring in the first half. For the Steelers' fans in the crowd of there was unrestrained by them, restrained by the cherubic Rooney, who had paid for his team decades ago and now saw each of his players pocket five times that amount for their triumph. Vikings coach Bud Grant, who four times coached Winnipeg Blue Bombers to the Canadian Football League Grey Cup championship, now is the only coach to lose three Super Bowls.

Friday night, the Edmonton club had breezed to a 100 66 triumph over the locals. But Saturday, with Roger Baldry and Lauren Edlund coming up with what coach Robin Fry called "their best performances the Pronghorns were leading Alberta 58 56 with just five minutes to go. However, Steve Panteluk converted a three point play and Baldry left the game on fouls at that point, and the Bears pulled away in the late going. Panteluk finished the game with 16 points and was the se- cond leading scorer for the visitors, who were led in that department by Doug Baker with 18. Former Pronghorn Dan Court chipped in with 13 points. Phil Letham led a balanced Pronghorn attack with 14 points. Behind him were Max Zaugg and Joey Shackleford, both of whom shot over 55% from the floor, with 13 apiece. Baldry added 10 points, but his major contribution was on" defence and on the backboards. Edlund did not hit the scoresheet, but was simply outstanding in the rebounding department. He snatched 14 caroms, tops in the game, against the much taller Golden Bear forwards. The Pronghorns came out fired up early in the game in an attempt to vindicate themsejves after Friday's humiliation. A rugged man to man defence gave the Bears trouble, and within eight minutes, the locals found themselves up 19 14. Richard Foggo made his presence felt despite an in- jured ankle, as he continually broke Alberta's full court press with his fine ball handling. However, the young rookie, who was leading the league in scoring before his injury, re sprained the ankle late in the half, and could manage only nine points for the game. The Bears fought back to take a 35 31 lead into the dressing room at halftime, and set the stage for a see saw battle throughout most of the second half. The Pronghorn women did just the opposite of the men. Moser dies WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) Mike Moser, a member of the Canadian National Basketball Team during the last three years, died Sunday in St. Petersburg, Fla., after he had entered hospital for treatment of what was believed to be the flu. The 22 year old student of Kinesiology the science of movement was a Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union All-Star the last two years. He has been'on several tours with the Canadian National Basket- bail team, including a 1972 tour of China and the 1974 World Championships at Puerto Rico. After giving Alberta's Pan- das a real run for their money before losing 44 36 Friday, the locals took a 52 33 drubb- ing Saturday. Amanda Hollaway paced the Pandas with 16 points while Sandra Knight was tops for the Pronghorns with 10. Lori Lilja chipped in with six for Lethbridge. Elsewhere in Canada West play Saturday, the University of Victoria Vikings maintain- ed their first place margin over the Bears with an 87 80 win over Saskatchewan Huskies in Saskatoon. The Vikings now sport an 8 2 record while the Bears are two games back at 6 2, but the Edmonton club has a pair of games in hand. And the Bears have another factor in their favor in that former Raymond star Wally Tollestrup has decided to re- join the club beginning next week after sitting out the first semester. Edmonton coach Barry Mitchelson revealed Saturday that Tollestrup was reluctant to play this season while going into his second year of I medicine, but reconsidered over the Christmas holidays. In .Saskatoon, Jim Dudderidge collected 27 points and Dave Mulcahy add- ed 24 in the Vikings' win. Roger Ganes paced the Huskies with 27 points while Dean Faris hooped 21. The University of Calgary Dinosaurs switched to a man to man defence from their usual zone Saturday and managed a 72 67 triumph over UBC Thtinderbirds. Pat Lee led the Dinos with 22 points while Tom Bishop chipped in with 18. Steve Pet- tifer was the game's high scorer for the Birds with 27 points while Blake Iverson added 12. In women's action, the University of Victoria Vikettes increased their record to 8 2 and ended a seven game Saskatchewan Huskiette winning streak by taking a 58 44 decision in Saskatoon. UBC Thunderettes got 37 points from Carol Turney as they clobbered Calgary Din- nies 96 28 in the other game Saturday. HOOP SHOTS The Pronghorns, after an im- pressive start, are now cast into the role of the spoiler with a 2 8 record... one con- solation is that four of the losses were extremely close ball games the other is that, as it now stands, they will have virtually everyone back next season the next two weekends will be tough, as they travel first to Victoria and- then to UBC one just couldn't say enough about the play of Baldry Saturday and. Edlund did a fine job in holding Dave Holland to nine points Holland fired in 34 in, the romp Friday. DUKESNIDER Duke says weather could be lot better By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer There have been many major league baseball players who have visited Lethbridge over the years but few have had the class and poise exhibited by former Dodger home run hitter Duke Snider. Snider, who was in Lethbridge for the LDS Father and Son Banquet Saturday night, impressed everyone he came in con- tact with. He displayed a beaming smile and a willingness to answer any question put to him with the blunt honesty that has become his trademark. Duke liked the people in Lethbridge, and was impressed with some of the new buildings in the city, but the weather was something else. "I have never been anywhere that has been below zero before. It's hard to believe that anyone can live in this the San Diego native said. When questioned about the Montreal Expos' coach Gene Mauch and their recent trades, Duke stated, "The Expos could have it all if all their deals jell, but that remains to be seen. "Singleton was good in his first year with the Expos but he tailed off last year. He is weak on defence and now that the pitchers know him he can be pitched around. As for Torres, well his record flatters him. He was shaky early in the year and many of his wins came from big scoring efforts by the Expos. He did start to pitch pretty well at the end of the year though." One of Duke's duties with the Expos, besides acting as the color commentator on the CBC Wednesday night games, is that of hitting instructor. "A batting instructor is like a doctor. The players come to you when something is not right and look to you to correct it." The greying "Silver Fox" is less than enthused about Little League baseball. "Little League is a good way to keep the parents off the he said. "They teach the wrong philosophy to the young hitters, turning them into defensive hitters. I would like to see them operate their games from a hitting tee the first few years so that the youngsters could learn to hit the ball, to field it and to run the bases well. "The emphasis is too much on win, win, win. And the youngster who is large for his age is allowed to stay in his age group, thus intimidating the smaller boys. A big boy who is a pitcher can literally scare a boy right out of baseball." Duke feels the designated hitter is a real boon to the game. "Few pitchers can hit. In fact when a pitcher comes to the plate, that's the best time to go to the refridgerator. I like the designated hitter and I'd even like to see a designated runner who could run the bases for the slower men three or four times a game." Gene Mauch, the Expo coach, has a lot of plusses says Duke, but he also has some minuses. "Gene isn't perfect, no one is. His main problem seems to be his intimidation of the younger players. A young pitcher will be concentrating on throwing to impress Gene instead of the batter. But Gene is a knowledgeable man when it comes to the rules and when to make certain moves." LCC team triumphant The Lethbridge Community College badminton team travelled to Edmonton over the weekend and captured the team competition at the NAIT badminton tournament. Sharon Davies of the LCC was the only Lethbridge stu- dent to win a championship as she finished on top in the women's singles. LCC individuals or teams placed second in every other category men's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. NAIT placed second in the team competition in the six team tourney. Bill Persley is the coach of the LCC team.
