Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-21,Lethbridge, Alberta — THE LCTHBRlbGE HERALD — Mond«y. JinuTy 21, 1974 Easter in Disneyltnd SHCW Mmlii« Muh inr nUUMl f« iHUiit mi MtnillM miM ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAOE MALL    ^^RHOHE 321-3201 The Herald' Sports Cherye Obertneyer Dianne Pedersen Kim Kovacs John Tinordi High school, closed trundlers keep alleys busy Four bowling titles decided on Sunday Pins, and plenty of them fell Sunday at Lethbridge’s two bowling centres. Capri Bowl hosted the city high school rolloffs while Holiday Bowl laid out the red carpet to men’s and women’s closed event. Four up and coming trundlers led the way in the separate affairs while a host of other bowlers can still leave their mark in provincial play as well. • At Capri young Cherye Obermeyer and Kim Kovacs shared the spotlight by capturing the respective titles. Miss Obermeyer romped to a 171 pin advantage over Nedine Kovacs while Kim Kovacs, Nedine’s brother, was 180 pins better than runner-up Ken Kurtz. Over at Holiday, in a lian-dicappjed rolloff, John Tinordi won a family affair besting his son Bob 1,926-1,911. On the dis-r taff side of play Dianne Pedersen came up with a total pinfall of 1,950 to outdistance Melanie Wilson, who had a l,-898 total. Obermeyer averaged 272 as she rolled games of 215, 358, 274, 289, 298, 367, 208 and 273. Miss Kovacs, averaging 251, had games of 354,215,323,218, 264, 228, 211 and 198. Miller has been brilliant TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ~ Johnny Miller is being fair. He plans to talce some time off and so, for the first time this year, somebody else will win a tournament. Miller, a skinny, blonde 36-year-old, scored a record- breaking third consecutive victory Sunday in the $150,000 Tucson Open golf tournament and reluctantly decided to skip this week’s San Diego Open. “With this cold and sore throat I have, if I don’t take some time off. I’m cruisin’ for a bruisin’. I’m committed for six weeks in a row starting in Hawaii. “If I played another tournament ... I’d do one of two things; I’d get pneumonia or my game would go bad,” ANDY CAPP Henderson forces issue, Baceda needed just a victory By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Enso Baceda and his Lethbridge -rink don't have nine lives, but they do have one more left. Baceda had been cruising right along in the District 2 men’s curling piaydowns and until Sunday night had visions of a trip to Calgary Jan. 24-27 for the Southern Alberta finals. He anft his mates haven’t given up their vision o( a journey north, but they didn’t go home Sunday night and pack. Scott Hendcrsofl’s rink saw to that as he bested Baceda 108 in the first of what is now a two-game ‘'A ’-“B " playoff. BaceiJa, the “A” side champ, needed but one win Sunday night to sideline Henderson and earn a trip to Calgary. ' Now, however, he must come up with all his shots ac-tonight at six o'clock ■ 11 that, then h('.. : his riHK can pack their bags. If not, Henderson and his quartet will be off and running. In the Sunday encounten nothing was decided until Baceda ran out of rocks trying to overcome a two-point Henderson advantage'in the 12 and final end. A surprisingly high-scoring encounter, Baceda scored first with one in the opening end. Henderson, with last rock in the second scored two and then stole one in the third. The fourth end was blanked, Baceda roared back with three in the fifth end to take 4- lead. But Henderson regained the lead with a pair in the sixth. The seventh end maintained the see-saw format to the game as Baceda came up with two and a 6-5 cushion. In what proved to be Henderson s biggest end of the game, the eighth, he scored three times to pull ahead 8-6. But Baceda wasn't about to roll over and play dead. A win for him and it was all over. Hising lo the occasion he scorcd twice rn the ninth and deadlocked the game at 8-8, Henderson scored once in the 10th and stole a single in the nth and simply forced Baceda to run out of rocks. For Henderson it was his third game of the day. In the morning round he bounced Bill Karbashewski and then followed up with a victory over Don Hipfner in the “B" final. Karbashewski. who said Sunday “when you're hot you're hot and when you’re not, you're out'-’, lost to Baceda in the “A" final and then found his luck wasn’t much better in the “B” section. Baceda, enroute to the “A " section title, dropped Garth Pilling and Dave Forry before his win over Karbashewski. Karbashewski, while his hand was hot, bested Lloyd Kanewischcr and Clarke Greene. Playing with Baceda in tonight's showdown will be third Rick Overn, second Paul Stevenson and lead Russ McCunc. At the front of Henderson’s rink will be lead Red Irvine, second Steve Gillies and third Denny Kjeldgaard. He held off Ben Crenshaw’s challenge with a final-round 68,    four under par on the 7,305-yard Tucson National Golf Club course, and won by three strokes with a 16-under-par total of 272. He has broken par in every competitive round he’s played this season. Miller, unbeaten this year, is the only man ever to sweep the first three tournaments of the season and is the first since Arnold Palmer in 1962 to win any three consecutive events. “Four In a row would be nice, ” said Miller, who leaped to recognition with his record victory in the United States last summer. “But, like they say, if you don't have your health you don’t have anything.” Miller won the weather-pla-' gued Bing Crosby tournament, followed that with a triumph at Phoenix and led alt the way in this one. For the third day in a row Miller faltered down the stretch. He had a four-stroke lead after 15 holes of the final round, bogeyed the next two holes and didn’t really clinch it until Crenshaw three-putted for bogey on the last hole. CEENSHAW HAS 69 The 22-year-old Crenshaw had a final-round 69 for 275, J. C. Snead, 70, and Jerry Heard, 69,    followed at 276. “I was lucky," Miller said. “I got off to that great start, making birdies on the first three holes. If I’d gone parpar-par you can bet your bottom dollar I wouldn’t have won. “I felt 1 was fighting an uphill battie. 1 didn’t think I could handle his action.” But he did, pulling dbwn a $30,000 first prize and pushing his winnings to $90.000 in only three weeks. With his victory in the World Cup competition in Spain and his last 1973 start, Miller now has won his last four tournaments. Different Jack Evans The Jack Evans, whose son was killed when struck by a puck in a juvenile hockey game in Clinton, Ont. Thursday, is a different Jack Evans than Southern Alberta hockey fans are familiar with. Jack Evans, who played junior with the Lethbridge Native Sons and senior with the Maple Leafs before playing for New Vork Rangers aiid Chicago Black 'Hawks of the National l,eague, is living in San Diego with his family. Kvans is coaching the Gulls of the Western Hockey League and has a son, II years old. Bod Taylor T aylor dinner guest Rod Taylor, the hard-hitting outfielder-pitcher of the Lethbridge Lakers, has been named as a head table guest at the sixth annual LDS Father and Son Athletic Awards Banquet. Taylor is a consistently good hitter, hovering around the .400 mark this past season with the Lakers. Besides his big bat and fielding skills, he often comes to the aid of the club as a relief and starting pitcher, making him a valuable asset to any club. His abilities earned him a berth on Canada’s national team and trips to Rome and Nicaragua. He continued to shine at the bat even in the tough world competition and was among the leading hitters on the Canadian squad. Taylor is currently working towards his masters degree in teaching at Whitworth College in Washington where he is also the assistant coach of the baseball team. A four-year Letterman in Spokane, Taylor was also nominated for the outstanding college athlete award in 1972 as well as the Gene Waldren baseball scholar-athlete award the same year. The Hillspring athlete joins Olympic swimming star Mike Burton; Montreal Expo Ron Fairly; Calgary Stampeder Frank AndruskI; rodo cowboys Tom, Blake and Greg Butterfield; minor hockey coach Harold Osmond; U of L physical education chairman Dr. Gary Bowie and master of ceremonies Ian Madin at the banquet. Proceedings will get underway at 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 at the Lethbridge Community College. Tickets are available at Dougs. Thiftway Drugs, and Stubbs Pharmacy and are priced at fS apiece.

TYPEWMTEK Yepremian wins Turnover Bowl KANSAS CITY (AP) -Garo Yepremian, a native of Cyprus who didn’t go to college, may have the most educated foot in the National Football League. For four years the little guy helped Miami Dolphins, National Football League champions, to victory after victory. 'Vepremian’s foot did it again Sunday, except this time it was for the American Conference. His five field goals, the winning one a 42-yarder with 21 seconds remaining, set a Pro Bowl record and gave the AFC a 15-13 triumjrtj over the National Conference in a game that had 12 first-half turnovers. There were 15 fumbles, eight recovered, and four intercepted passes. Prior to his game-decider, Vepremian booted field goals of 16. 37, 27 and 41 yards. He broke the record of four kicked in 1972 by Kansas City’s Jan Stenenid. MONEY MEANT UTTLE With his left foot plunged into ice, Yepremian said afterward; “I had to come through for the rest of the guys. Thfe nioney djd not mean anything. Most of the extra $500 the winners get goes for taxes anyway.” Yepremian, helped from the field after a nullified 22-yard field goal in the third quarter when he was hit by Mel Renfro of Dallas Cowboys, was voted the game’s most valuable player. After an offside penalty erased that kick. Yepremian returned and made good on the 27-yarder. I?ounding out the gals team who will play in the zone final Feb. 24 in Lethbridge were defending champion Brenda Pedersen 1,888; Kalie Pedrini 1,699; Brenda Christiel, 563; Cindy Pedrini 1,548 and Jennifer Maybin 1,299. For Kim Kovacs, whose average was 248, he enjoyed games of 195,302,273,339,231, 206, 280 and 256. Kurtz hit for games of 207, 242, 193, 198, 309, 153, 276 and 238.

Bob gave it his all as he used his 192 handicap to good advantage with games of 218, 208, 296, 177, 239, 210, 187 and 184. Teams of seven men and six women will now travel to Medicine Hat for the south zone final Feb. 10.

Mrs. Pedersen enjoyed games of 254,271,204,165,211, 219, 187 and 286. But with her 153 handicap she easily outlasted Wilson. For Wilson, her 256 handicap aided her as she rolled 213, 173, 175, 162 , 240 , 221, 232 and 226. A trip to Medicine Hat was also earned by Janet Hogg 1,887; Erma McGuire 1,838; Helen Rossetti, 1,7BI; Brenda Duce 1,761 and alternate Doreen Wilson 1,760.
