All won the fight with a unanimous decision leaving the two at a victory each setting up a possible rubber match. Dionne hottest scorer after starting out slowly MONTREAL (CP) It is hard to believe that a player who went 20 games without a goal during October and No- vember is the hottest scorer in the National Hockey League today. Marcel Dionne, the dimin- utive centre of the Red Wings, has scored 13 goals and 26 as- sists in his last 15 games, a better production than Boston Bruins' superstars Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr, Wayne Carlton remains on top SANTA ANA, Calif. (CP) Toronto's Wayne Carleton continued to pace the World Hockey Association scoring race Monday, but old No. 9 is on his shoulder. Whalers erupted in third BOSTON (AP) Anytime a hockey team scores five goals in the final period it deserves to that's what New England Whalers did Monday night. "This is a great win and a great New England coach Ron Ryan said after the Whalers rallied for a 6-4 World Hockey Association victory over Vancouver Blazers It was the only WHA game played The Whalers spotted Van- couver first-period goals by Colin Campbell, John McKenzie and Rob Walton before rebounding to boost their lead in East Division to six points over Toronto Toros. New England began its comeback with a second- period goal by Tom Webster. Then the Whalers tied the score on goals by Brad Selwood and Tom Earl. Mike Byers put the Whalers ahead for the first time mid- way through the final period, but John Migneault tied it for Vancouver 30 seconds later The Whalers kept skating and regained the lead on John French's 17th goal at Two minutes later Rick Ley added an insurance goal. Carleton, the Toros' outstanding centre, has 28 goals and 72 points in 51 games. But Gordie Howe, Houston Aeros' 45-year-old winger- making a comeback after two years in retirement, is fast closing on the leader and has five games in hand. Howe, after a slow start, includes 16 goals among his 64 points and shares the runner- up spot with Centre Jim Harrison of Edmonton Oilers. Danny Lawson of Vancouver Blazers maintains the goal-scoring leadership with 34, two ahead of Winnipeg Jets' Bobby Hull. The leaders: THl LIADIRt: Carleton, T Harrison E G Howe.

Cl French, NE Semes, T Kirk, T EXPOS INK TWO MONTREAL (CP) Outfielder Ron Woods and right-handed pitcher Ernie McAnally have signed contracts with Montreal Expos for the 1974 National League baseball season, the Expos announced Monday. After 31 games, Dionne had only two goals and 24 assists. Now, he shares sixth place in the NHL scoring race with 15 goals and 37 assists for 52 points. Dionne scored four goals and three assists in three games last week, pacing Detroit to a five-point gain on Buffalo Sabres and the Wings now trail fifth-place Buffalo by only four points and are eight points behind fourth- place Toronto Maple Leafs. Since joining Detroit from St. Catharines Black Hawks of the Ontario Major Junior A Hockey series in 1971-72, Dionne has counted more points than any player in NHL history scored in his first 2V4 seasons in the league. Dionne has 219 points in 201 games, 13 points more than Rick Martin of Buffalo Sabres. Esposito still leads in the NHL scoring race with 88 points and although he has dipped below his goal-a-game pace, he still leads with 43 goals in 46 games. Orr, who injured his left leg Sunday in the Bruins' 5-3 win over Philadelphia Flyers, is second with 79 points on 23 goals and a league-leading 56 assists Ken Hodge of Boston is third with 65 points followed by the Sabres' Martin who has 59. Goaltender Bemie Parent of Philadelphia recorded his 10th shutout of the season Friday night in Oakland and now is only five short of equalling Tony Esposito's modern-era record of 15 shutouts registered in 1969-70. Parent and Bobby Taylor continue to lead the Vezina Trophy race with a combined goals-against-average of 2.02 in 44 games. The Chicago duo of Esposito and Mike Veisor have a 2.24 average.

Ali! The yells of the crowd in Madison Square Garden were music to Muhammad Ali who won a unanimous decision Monday night over Joe Frazier to avenge an earlier defeat at the hands of the one- time world heavyweight boxing champion. The verdict in the 12-round slugfest brought the crowd of to its feet and made Mu- hammad the No. 1 threat to the title held by big George Foreman. "George Foreman....fights like a Ali said. "Joe Frazier is a good fighter. I think we should fight again." Foreman, who knocked Fra- zier to the canvas six times and won the heavyweight crown in a second round knockout a year ago in Jamaica, will meet Ken Norton, who broke All's jaw and split two decisions with Muhammad, in a title defence at Caracas, Venezuela, March 26. Bob Arum, Ali's lawyer and head of the agency that handled the world-wide television rights to Monday night's fight, would like to match Ali and the Foreman- Norton winner in the spring. FRAZIER GRACIOUS "I want him bet- ter believe Frazier said after the fight. "I think I won, but it could have gone either way. I hurt him more than he hurt me. He was wrestling and holding on." "I'm not gonna duck Ali said. "I'm not gonna be like Foreman. I thought Joe was finished. He surprised me. He was much better than in the first fight." It was another great battle of contrasting styles slugger against the master but it had a different ending. In the first fight, March when the two were unbeaten champions, Frazier was the unanimous 15-round winner. The two judges gave Ali a wide edge Monday night; Tony Castellano 7-4-1 and Jack Gordon 8-4, while Tony Perez scored it 6-5-1, all for Ali. Ali, 32, came out dancing and flicking his long left like a serpent's tongue. Frazier, 30, snorting like an angry bear, came out flailing away, dis- daining punches thrown at him. That was the tenor of the fight Ali, 212, took the first two rounds handily, beating a tattoo on Frazier's angry face. "I'm gonna get snarled Frazier in the third It WFL signs three top prospects ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The infant World Football League scored its first points against the entrenched National Football League Monday when its Southern California franchise signed three top players UCLA running backs Kermit Johnson and James McAlister and Southern Cal offensive tackle Booker Brown All signeu long-term contract with the WFL club on the eve of the NFL draft. Terms of contracts weren't revealed, but Mike Trope of World Sports Management, which represents the three players, claimed each will receive more than 0. J Simpson did under his first contract with Buffalo Bills. Owner Larry Hatfield of the Southern California WFL club declared the signings gave impetus to the new league's battle for existence. "We believe the signing of these three outstanding young men gives the Southern California team a great he said. "The announcement of these signings before the NFL draft gives our league added credence." All three said they had originally planned to await the NFL draft but the offer from the WFL team changed their minds Although Simpson's original 1969 contract was never officially divulged, the Associated Press reported it was four-year pact which guaranteed him in salary and a loan. was a round he won, twice snapping Ali's head back with vicious left hooks and pounding telling blows into Muhammad's midsection. Ali's jabs to Frazier's face began to take effect. A knot here. A bruise there. No blood Ali appeared to win the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds He was an evasive target. Frazier, 209, swung wildly, missed often. In the sixth round, Ali shot a glove to Frazier's mouth. Frazier, obviously irked at his failure to drive home a telling or a knockout blow in the early rounds, picked up momentum in the seventh He danced and taunted Ali, nailed Muhammad with thunderous left hooks. fought well in the seventh and eighth, maybe winning both, as Ali showed signs of tiring. Ali became flat-footed. He moved with less agility. He took more punishment and administered less. In the ninth round, Frazier brought blood to Ali's nose but spit some blood from his own mouth. Ali hung on, tying Fra- zier up and pecking away at him. "Ali, Ali, the crowd yelled more wildly in the later stages. It sensed the Ali vic- tory.
