Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 _ THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Monday, July 17, I97J--------- HUU GOES TO SCHOOL Bobby Hull, who was lold thai he could not play on Team Canada hockey team agoinst the Russians this fall because he does not play for the NHl, signs autographs in Toronto on a stopover on his way from Winnipeg lo Chica- go to lake part in brother Dennis Hull's hockey school. Prime Minister Trudeau has ask- ed the NHl to let Hull play for Canada agai nst the Soviet Union. (CP Wirephoto) Nicklaus the better player? Trevino bubbles over Sweep two 'from Red Deer in, convincing fashion New-look Lakers impressive on weekend MUIRFIELD, Scotland (AP) Flamboyant Lee Trevino, still bubbling over his secor.d straight victory in Ihc British open golf championship, admit- ted generously today that his great rival Jack Nicklaus is a better player. By winning Hie British title Saturday, Trevino put an end (or this year to Nickiaus's dream of" capturing the first grand slam in modern golf- sweeping all four major titles. Trevino's triumph was to sur- vive a super-charge by the 32- year-old Golden Bear in the final round over Muirfield's par-72 links, swelter- ing in unaccustomed sunshine on the shores of the normally windswept Firth of Forth. But the man who calls him- self Super Mex paid this sub- sequent tribute to Nicklaus: "I don't think I am in the same class as Jack." "Nicklaus can be beaten, sim- ply because nobody can win all the Trevino said. "But to beat him, you really have to play well. -'There was no one in the field who could honestly say he was In the same class as Jack." BACKS JACK FOR I'GA Trevino said be hoped Nick- laus would go on to win the U.S. PGA championship next month at Birmingham, Mich., the final leg of the grand slam. "Then I'll be known not just as the British open champion but as the man who stopped Jack from doing the big one this year. Nicklaus already holds the Masters and U.S. Open crowns and needed the British champi- onship and the to achieve the all-but-impcssilile dream. Trevino picked up the win- ner's pay cheque of equal to S14.300 at official rate. with a 72-hoite total of 27R, six under par. His rounds were 71- 70-66-71. Nicklaus lock second place, one stroke behind, with 70-72-71- "I rate my last round as one of the finest I ever Nicklaus said. That 6G matched the course record, set earlier in the week by talented young Johnny Miller Wilf Hoinemiik lucky lo WINNIPEG (CP) A tee shot that bounced off a specta- tor's head saved Wilf Homen- uik's par on the 16th hole, allow- ing the 34-year-old Winnipeg professional to capture the Manitoba Open golf championship Saturday. Homenuik finished 54-hole tournament at fivc-under-par 211 (o win SI -500. He was two strokes in front of defending champion John Elliot of Fort Lauderdalc, Fla.. John Morgan of Victoria, and sec- ond-round leader Al Kietzmann of Benoni Lake, South Africa. and equalled by Trevino lalcr. In one of the most exciting finishes in Lhe history of this tournament. Nicklaus made up a six-shot deficit and at one stage actually overtook Trevino. Trevino had lo hole a chip from a green-side (rap at the 17th for a par five that saved liis title. He became the first man lo defend the British crown successfully since Arnold Palmer did it in 1961-62. Tony Jacklin, the young Eng- lishman who held both the U.S. and British open lilies, third with 280, Doug Sanders to- talled 281 for fourth place, Brit- ish Ryder Cup star Brian Barnes was next with 2M and South Africa's Gary Player had 285 for sixth place. Meanwhile in Milwaukee Jim Colbert said he played the best pressure golf of his life in post- ing his second victory in seven years on the pro tour, but the Greater Milwaukee Open nearly lasted one hole loo long Sunday for the 31-year-old Kansan. Colbert was 14-under par for Ihe meet and nursing a two- stroke load when he bogeycd Ihe 72nd hole. Then he watched under hcartstopping tension while charging George Johnson and steady Allin. the final twosome, each barely m'ssed birdies which would have forced a sudden-dealh playoff. Colbert's final 69 on Hie par 71 Tripoli Golf Club course earned him with a 13-under total of 271.

Well, the Lethbridgc Lakers of the Alberta Major Baseball League may have found thai uut for themselves Ibis p a b t weekend. Afler z lightning quick start hi their first year in the six- team Alberta League the locals were fast heading for a settling spot in the basement. Team of- ficials thought it was time for a change. You can't send lo the bullpen for a new team so the board of directors replaced coach John Vasclenak with Hec Negrello. For the time being, at least, tilings are working out. Lakers hosted Red Deer Elks in a pair of weekend games and came out on the ton end of 9-1 and 10-5 verdicts, Satur- day night and Sunday after- noon respectively. Nearly 1.000 people took in the weekend pair and saw two changes, while not severe, both were noticeable. Saturday night young left- hander Jeff DeRecat was the winner as he went the distance on a five-hitter. Sunday, Al Ferchuk was on hand for all nine innings, and despite being lagged for 15 hits, he was in very little trouble throughout. Back-to-back complete games could be a sign of better things to come for the Lakers. Another tiling, and a big one at that, was the errors. They were conspicuous by their ab- sence. One miscue Saturday and another Sunday were all the locals were guilty of. As one fan put, it. "I've seen them commit that many on one play in the past." Bill Phillips took the loss Saturday night as Bob Turner and Marty Maxwell provided DeRecat with the firepower for the rookies' first win. Maxwell had a triple and two singles wliile Turner produced a brace of doubles and a single. Jim Berlando got to DeRecat for two singles for the Elks. Sunday, despite 27 hits, start- ers Ferchuk and Ballou were around at the end. Wayne Commodore just miss- ed clearing the fence on two oc- casions Sunday but settled for two doubles and a single and four runs batted in. Howie Heg- gedal added a single and a double with Turner chipping in with two singles. Ballou did the most damage at the plale for the Elks with a single and two doubles. Wayne McKee stroked thre; singles while Berlando accounted for a single and a double. Lakers are in action Tuesday night when they meet league- leading Calgary Jimmies at eight o'clock. Thursday night, "A Whoop-Up Days quipped Lakers' manager Doug Frier, the locals host Eston Ramblers in a twi-night double- header. The first game is set for while Ihe second fol- lows.

In Edmonton, Tigers scored three runs in the first inning and held on for a 4-2 victory over Calgary Giants Saturday. The Tigers' runs in the first inning were scored on an error, a walk, a two-run triple by Julie Owchar, and a sacrifice fly by Mark Newson The Tigers' fourth run was scored in Hie seventh inning after the Giants got singles in the second and fourth to make the score 3-2.

Friday night the Native Sons edged the Shamrocks 4-3 in over time as Jerry SI. Jean scored Iwice. Singles went to Bill Shaw and Ken Hammerstedl. Gerry Gilson accounted for two goals for the Shamrocks while Tim Benstead added a solo marker. Both goalies were brilliant in the low-scorijip encounter that saw St. Jean tie the game on a short-handed goal at the 1C: 18 mark of the third period. Hammerstedt notched the win- ner at of the 10-minute overtime session. Saturday night the Native Sons grabbed a C-l first period lead and never looked back as they belted Calgary Royals 144 with Laine Wright leading Ihe way. Wright, who had amassed just three goals all season, broke loose for four markers while Shaw chipped in w i t h three.

All Ihree athletes were sel- ected to the Canadian Olympic team in their events. Miss and Mrs. Meldrum will be join- ed by Debbie Van Kiekebclt, also of Toronto, and the Cana- dian record holder in the event.

After five events, Ihc Saskatoon girl was ahead by 189 poinls. A Ihird Canadian girl who also has reached that standard, Penny May of Victoria B.C.. was forced lo withdra-f after the first day because of a ham- siring injury. The injury may keep Miss May out of the Olympic trials this weekend in Scarborough, Ont. Moro's win In the men's pen- lalhlon was hardly unexpected, as he is the lone Canadian wilh Ihe Olympic qualifying sland- ard of points. Moro won with poinls, almost 500 in front of Gord Stewart of Van- couver. Stewart finished with 6.998 points while Irmich Kir- aly of Ontario was third wilii poinls.
