Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IFTHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 19. Locals make shambles of provincial final Alberta junior crown remains with Miners liv YAMAGISIII llrralil Sports Wrilrr Junior Miners marie ;i complete shambles of Uio Alberta Junior Baseball championship finals at the Hen- derson park over the weekend. The Millers captured their second straight Alberta title at ease using only 21 innings of baseball in their three vic- tories. In a case where a team is down by 10 runs or more Efter seven Umings of play, the game is then called. The Miners opened defence of their Alberta crown hammer- ing the Edmonton Blue Wil- low Angels 23-6 in the two-day double knockout tourney opener Saturday and came back strong as ever Sunday, belting the Red Deer Mo'ose 19-5 in the "A" section final. Red Deer moved into the "A" final after dropping the Calmar Bobcats 7-2 Saturday. Saturday was a bad day for the Bobcats as they were eli- minated from further action playoffs with a humiliating 13-2 loss Ib the Blue Willow An- gels. HERALD DISTRICTS CHAMP Cliff Stroh, who has missed a good portion of rhe golf season due lo a bad back, was at his best Saturday and Sunday as he 'he south- ern Alberta berth in the Herald Country Districts golf championships.

Tcnlh tourney triumph Bruce Crampton wins CHICAGO (AP) Bruce Crampton' 35-year-old Austral- ian, is a philosophical golfer who believs that if you are des- tined to win a tournament, you will. He was in four traps, missed seven fairways with his tee shots and was among trees about as much as a lumberjack S'unday, but he won the Western open golf championship and its first-place money. A closing for a five-un- der-par 279 did it. The slightly-built tat sturdy Aussie now has won 10 tourna- ments since 1957 and has passed a half million dollars in win- nings. The Western, however, was his first victory since taking the jackpot at the Westches- ter Open a year ago. Ben Kern of Toronto, the lone Canadian to reach the champi- onship rounds carded a 72 Sun- day. His 297 total was worth In the next K months' Crampton will have shots at a pair of winning plums. He defends his title in the Westchester, richest tourney in the world, this week. By winning the Western, he qualified for the World Series of Golf in Akron in September. He will be playing for the first prize against Lee Trevino, the U.S., Canadian and British Open king; Jack Nicklaus, the PGA champ and Charles Coody- the Masters winner. Trevino, ai.d his fantastic vic- tory streak in the last month, cooled off in the Western. He closed with a 70 for 291 and a share of 32nd place- He won and gave his caddy Bobby Nichols skidded to a 38 on the front side and came back strongly with a 73 and total 281 for second place, worth Jerry Heard and Tommy Aaron, each with 71, shared third place with 282 and col- lected Dick Lotz, who made an eagle on the second hole and then flew apart, wound up with 75 for 283 and fifth place' worth John Elliot Jr. scores first WINNIPEG (CP) John El- liott Jr. of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Saturday scored his first professional golf victory, a sud- den-death win over Moe Nor- man of Gilford, Ont. in the Man- itoba Open championship. Elliott, who was first awarded the title by disqualification on the second playoff hole but refused to accept it, sank a one-foot pressure putt on the sixth-extra hole to defeat Nor- man and capture the first prize. Norman picked up for second place. Elliott, husband of Canadian >-onian professional Sandra Post Elliott, completely re- versed his form from the second round when he "choked" after SAVE up TO ON MUFFLER REPLACEMENTS WE HAVE: A MUFFLER FOR MOST CARS FREE INSTALLATION 10 MINUTE INSTALLATION LIFETIME GUARANTEED MUFFLERS FREE INSPECTION AND ESTIMATES All AT INUTB UFFLEFt Phone 328-8134 509 6lh Avonuo South taking the lead at three-under- par for 27 holes. He settled for a 71 and a two-round total of even-par 140, two shots behind John Mahaffey, the leader going into the final round of the 54- hole, tournament. But the 25-year-old Elliott, in his first year on the pro tour, knocked in an eight-foot putt on Riessen proved right WASHINGTON (AP) Marty Riessen proved a good prophet last week when he predicted old pro Ken Rosewall would get hot in the Washington Star international tennis tournament. "He started slow but I have a feeling he's going to finish very said Riessen, the 29- year-old pro from Tucson, Ariz. "He always plays better when Rod Laver is out of the tourna- ment." Riessen was right, also a vic- tim of the prediction. Rosewall, winner of three pre- vious tourneys this year, ran through straight-set victories over America's Dennis Ralston and Stan Smith before polishing off Riessen 6-2, 7-5, 6-1 Sunday to win the first prize. Before playing Ralston Thurs- day, the 36-year-old Australian had to struggle through three- set triumphs over Jim Osborne of Honolulu, John Alexander of Australia and Laver, also from Australia. It was his first victory over Laver since 1968. MATCH A BOOST "The Laver match helped me to play Rosewall said. "I played fair against Os- borne and Alexander. But I wasn't pleased because I found the conditions a bit awkward. When I got through the Laver match. I knew I had the game to win.1' Rosewall played magnifi- cently against Riessen, victor over top-seeded John New- combe of Australia Saturday. Eight times Rcsewall broke Riessen's service which was so effective against Newcombe. "He probably played himself out yesterday against New- said Rosewall, winner of this year and in 1970. Rosewall, who said he played more consistently five years ago, said he is thinking about cutting down on his tournament schedule. "I've got lo the stage where I have to think of my he said.
