Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, July H, THE IETHBRIDCE HRAID GOING DOWN-Montreal Alouettes' tarry Farrholm tackles halfback Dave Cranmer of the Calgary Stamped- ers who is carrying, the ball in Canadian Football League action at Montreal Wednesday. The game ended in a 8-8 deadlock. Quickest Time Thus Far Penner Shows How It's Done CALGABY (CP) The dusty infield and blazing sun suited Dave Penner of Brooks, Alta., Wednesday as he showed rodeo fans the proper way to wrestle steer. Penner threw the animal in 5.5 seconds, the fastest tune yet at the Calgary Stampede, and practically assured himself of victory in the second go-round of steer wrestling. Ken Clegg 'of Kenwic! Wash., also produced a high calibre demonstration, throw ing his animal in 6.1 seconds Times were also faster in th calf roping as Rex Bland o Two Fighters Near The End Old Magic Is Gone NEW YORK (CP) Two old toldiers went to battle in Madi- son Square Garden Wednesday night, and1 when the smoke had cleared they must have both sensed the ultimate they were just two old boxing warriors who would not see bet- ter days again. Emile Griffith1, 32, former world welterweight and mid- Zuger Injures Another Finger HAMILTON (CP) -Hamilton Tiger-Cat quarterback Joe Zuger, who missed much of last (season's Canadian Football League action with finger inju- ries, today has another finger in splints. The latest injury came Tues- day when centre John Vilunas snapped the ball to Zuger, caus- ing a dislocation of the middle finger on the quarterback's left band. Zuger, who also performs Ti- oats' punting duties, was side- Kned in mid-September last sea- sal when he suffered an injury to the little finger and ring fin- ger on his left hand. dleweight champion, might have proved to himself that his 15-round decision over Dick Tiger of Nigeria in 1966 was no fluke by beating the aging war- rior in a lacklustre exhibition. But Garden fans booed his performance. Griffith won Tiger's middle- weight title four years ago and Tiger had vowed that he would even the score if they ever met All that Griffith proved in winning a unanimous 10-round decision over the 41-going-on- 51-year-old Tiger was that he also is not the fighter he was a few years back. Griffith, 157, looked good in landing three or four solid right-hand leads in the first round, but Tiger, 167, showing his age and the effects of an eight-month layoff, landed a good right hand in the second round that shook Griffith and after that Griffith showed little inclination to mix with his hard-punching opponent. That set the pattern for the rest of the fight, with Griffith jabbing and running. Tiger landed the occasional punch but couldn't put any combinations together to do any harm to his running adversary. The unanimous decision was booed loudly, but not becaua the fans disagreed with the i suit. They had come to see battle and they were short changed. Flamen Hot, Belts Three Ti.9 Bank of Nova Seoti trimmed the City of Lethbridg 13-12 in a City Businessman' fastball game last evening. Lynn Rosaine picked up the win while Joe Carl took the loss. No one could complain abou Keith Flamen's hitting as he belted three home runs and a triple-to lead the Bank's offen- sive attack. Rosauie aided his own cause with two doubles and like number of singles. For the City, Leo Vander leuvel poked out two doubles and two singles in a losing cause.

Evanshen Almost Gave Alouettes Win Lacklustre Tie For Stamps MONTREAL (CP) A missed convert by. Pierre Guin don on Terry Evanshen's touch- down held Montreal Alouettes to an 8-8 tie with Calgary Stam- peders in a Canadian Footbal League exhibition game Wednesday night. Guindon's convert attempt went wide and .disappointed the fans who saw the Al- ouettes come back with a touch- down with remaining on the clock. Evansben scored on a 30-yard pass from rookie quarterback Tony Passander. It capped an 85-yard downfield march di- rected by Passander, who called the Als' offence for the entire quarter. Montreal tried desperately for the winning point on the last play of the game, but Sonny Wade's punt from the Stamps' 50-yard line fell short of the goal line and Calgary ran the ball out of bounds. The Westerners were ahead 8-2 going into the final two min- utes of the game on two field goals by Larry Robinson and a safety touch. They led M after the first quarter and 5-1 at half time. Montreal's single points came on missed field goal attempts by Guindon and Giro Berretta, from the 31- and 38-yard lines, respectively. The Als had the first good scoring opportunity in what turned out to be a tightly-fought defensive game. Wade re- covered his own punt after the first series of plays and raced to the Calgary nine. Montreal managed only one yard on the next two plays and a field .goal attempt by Nar Zanolen was blocked. Robinson put the Stamps on the Scoreboard at of the first quarter with a 16-yard field goal. Calgary had a great chance to score early in the second when Montreal's Dick Smith fumbled on the Alouette five. But the Easterners held firm on three line plays and quarterback Jerry Keeling was stopped on the one-yard line. The Stamps scored their safety touch on the next series of plays when Passander was tackled behind the goal line by John Helton. The only Montreal scoring play of the opening half was Guindon's single. Robinson's second field goal at of the Uurd quarter put the Stamps ahead 8-1. Berret- ta's single at the mar- gin to six points. Montreal coach Sam Etchev- erry said he was disappointed his offence did not move the ball better. "If it wasn't for our defence tonight we'd have probably been slaughtered." DEPLORES FUMBLES He said every time the Al- ouettes moved the ball "we fumbled it." "We set them up for their field goals with our fumbles.' Etcheverry said the team now "realizes we need a hell of a lot more work."

In the Calgary dressing room, coach Jim Duncan said because it was his team's third game in a week "we were glad to get out of it alive." His team ran the ball well, ho said, but the soft field "was tough on the legs." The Stampeders would have double-teamed Kyanshen on his fourth-quarter touchdown play if it had been a regular game, Duncan said. Both coaches said their teams suffered no serious injuries dur- ing the game. Montreal's total offence was 331 yards, Calgary's 205. The Als completed 19 of 35 pass at- tempts for 265 yards not com- pared with the Stamps' 73 yards net on eight of 19 attempts.
