(AP) ~ For almost 59 minutes, the most elusive of Super Bowl titles licked off anxious fingertips and slipped through desperate hands before finally settling in the vise-like embrace of Mike Curtis and the relentless Baltimore Colts. Curtis's interception, fifth of six pass thefts in a struggle full of errors, set up a 32-yard field goal by rookie Jim O'Brien with five seconds to play Sunday that gave the Colts a 16-13 comeback victory over Dallas Cowboys. "I grabbed that ball so hard I almost squeezed the air out of it," said the hard-roek middle linebacker, who picked off a deflected pass with 69 seconds remaining. "1 didn't even think about running with it right away," Curtis said. "I felt maybe I should just fall on the ground so I wouldn't fumble it away." Fumbles had given Dallas 10 points and cost the Colts seven more. But Curtis rambled 13 yards to the Dallas 28. After two running plays gained three yards and consumed 60 seconds, Earl Morrall, the Colts' 36-year-old backup quarterback, called time out. Morall, scapegoat of Baltimore's 16-7 Super Bowl loss to New York Jets two years ago but a hero Sunday in relief of battered Johnny Unitas, then spotted the ball for O'Brien. The mop-haired, 22-year-old kicker split the uprights for the winning three points before an Orange Bowl crowd of 80,055. "It was so sweet," Morrall said. The favored Cowboys led 13-6 at the half, and Unitas, flattened by George Andrei as he threw his second interception of the game, went to the sidelines Two victories for Warriors The Lethbridge Juvenile Warriors increased their Southern Alberta Juvenile record to 16-0 as they earned themselves two victories over the weekend.

Shaw halts losing ways Matsoii equals world record LOS ANGELES (AP) - U.S. Olympic champion Randy Mat-son equalled the world indoor shot put record Saturday night with a put of 67 feet 10 inches at the Sunkist Invitational meet. He matched the mark set by Neal Steinhauer of Oregon in 1967. In the women's high jump event, Debbie Brill of Haney, E.C., won with a jump of six feet. Two U.S. contenders, Brcnda S i m ps o n and Sandi Goldsberry tied for second with jumps of 5-4. PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - "You can hear those Arnold I Palmer yells all over the course," said Tom Shaw, whoj overcame the din of Arnie's Army and won the $135,000 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am golf tournament Sunday. Shaw's victory ended a yearlong slump and left Palmer, the game's biggest name, still looking for his first tournament victory since 1969. The 28-year-old blond from Oregon finished with a two-un-der-par 70 on the 6,777-yard, par-72 Pebble Beach course, and a 72-hole total of 278. Palmer shot a 71 for 280. Shaw began the final round with a one-stroke edge on Palmer, and as he stood on the second fairway he heard that he was one stroke behind. Palmer holed a chip shot from 40 feet for an eagle-three at the second green and momentarily took the lead. Shaw took the lead for keeps when Palmer three-putted for a one-over-par on the fifth hole. Third place went to Bob Murphy, who closed with a 69 for a 282 total. Jerry Heard with a 67, Tom Weiskopf, with a 72, and Howie Jolmson, who shot 74, tied for third at 284. George Knudson of Toronto, making his first start this year, picked up $1,219 after he shot a final-round 72 for a 290 total. hi Uie second quarter with cracked ribs. Morrall drove the Colts to a first down at the Dallas two, but failed to get a touchdown across just before intermission. In the second half, Chuck Howley's interception in the end zone and Eddie Hinton's fumble through the end zone blunted two more Baltimore scoring bids. After Cornell Green stripped the ball from Hinton, who had caught a desperation pass from halfback Sam Havrilak, Dallas quarterback Craig Morton tried to hit fullback Walt Garrison with a third-down pass. But Baltimore's Jim Duncan tipped the ball to safety Rick Volk, whe sprinted 30 yards to the Cowboys'' three. Two plays later, Tom Nowatzke, the Colts' prize free agent pickup, bulled into the end zone. O'Brien, whose earlier extra point kick had been blocked after a deflected Unitas pass wound up in John Mackey's arms for a 75-yard touchdown play, then booted the tying conversion. There were 7% minutes to play. But the $15,000-a-man winners' shares appeared certain to be up for grabs in sudden-death overtime when neither team could move the ball on its next series. The Colts had beaten the New York Giants 12 years earlier in the NFL's only other sudden death championship game. And Unitas, architect of that victory, was warming up on the sidelines after having his ribs x-rayed, as the minutes ticked away. "I wasn't looking over my shoulder," Morrall said. Dallas' Dan Reeves was doing just that at the 13:51 mark when Morton's pass bounced off his outstretched hands and Curtis made the biggest interception of his life. "It was right in my hands," Curtis said. Curtis had come up with an earlier saver after Duncan fumbled away the second half kick-off to the Cowboys deep in Baltimore territory. With a first-and-goa! from the two, Curtis jarred the ball away from rookie Duane Thomas, who was held to 37 rushing yards, and Duncan recovered the fumble. "That undoubtedly was the big play of the game," saV Tom Landry, the Cowboys' coach. CURTIS "THE BEST* "The Mad Dog (Curtis) is the best middle linebacker in the league," said Billy Ray Smith, the rugged defensive tackle who played his last game for the Colts Sunday. "And they can say what they want about this ball club, but we didn't give up, This club doesn't have a give-up bone in its body. "We did everything we could to give it to them, but we hung in when the going was tough and in the end result that's what counts." Then Smith spotted O'Brien in the midst of a swarm of report ers. "What are you doing over there with all those guys?" he roared. "You only worked five seconds today-and you missed an extra point."
