6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 20, 1971 WINS IN A BREEZE Blow Mighty, with jockey Carl Schilling up, was day in a breeze as the six-day Whoop-Up Days race meet got started. the closest thing to a breeze Monday as he won the second race of the fthree winners Monday as Whoop-Up Days skir l Wiseman quick to take advantage By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Jockey Larry Wiseman is quick lo take advantage of a situation. Monday saw the opening of the six day Whoop Up Days Race Meet at Whoop-Up Downs and Wiseman moved front and centre as the rider to beat. Sunny skies and ideal racing conditions greeted patrons Monday and jockey Wiseman came away with a three win afternoon. Wiseman had no sooner ta- ken his racing colors from his hack following the seventh and featured race when the call came for a jockey for the eighth and final race. Carl Schilling, a newcomer to the Lethbridge racing' scene, was thrown from his mount in front of the grandstand and Wiseman was given the nod. It was Wiseman's day, as up- wards of bettors saw. Ky Eternal, with Wiseman's guidance, captured the Valley Feeders blanket in the seventh race. Ky Eternal paid to win, to place and 52.50 to show. Bunky Boo, with Schilling aboard, chased the winner to the wire and paid and War Doctor was Schilling's undoing. Seeking his third win of the day, Schilling found him- self flat on his back in front of the opening day gathering as War Doctor dumped the young jockey. Wiseman came on to take over and was a clear victor at the finishing wire. Ron Leon- ard gave War Doctor a run for the money atop Friendly Lad. Wiseman had earlier taken Bill's Chop Chop to the front in the fifth race. Monday's fifth race saw tick- et holders cash in on a Exactor. Schilling, before his fall, had ridden both ends of the daily double. He took advantage of Gerry Kipling's spill iji the first race to bring Friskalate home ahead of the pack and then followed up with a triumph aboard Blow Mighty in the second race. Daily double ticket holders cashed in on a payoff. Kipling, off to a bad start, was the star of the show last year with 18 victories in the six-day meet. He won four races on opening day and had another four win afternoon during the meet. Only one quinella was run off Monday as mechanical trou- bles hampered the pari-mutuel machines. The fifth race, which saw Wiseman win in the saddle with Biffs Chop Chop, was just an- other race of frustration for jockey Ron Leonard. Leonard finished in the money no less than five times aboard Court Finnegan in the third race. Court Finnegan comb i n e d with Hurry Hally, ridden by Barbara Suitor, for a quinella.

And just as sud- denly, so were some of Califor- nia's hopes for a sustained drive to (lie top of the American League's West Division. Sam McDowell, slapped with a fine Sunday by Cleve- land Indian manager Alvin Dark for "rowdyism" on the team bus, vented some of his frustrations on California's re- viving Angels, slapping them down with a seven-hit 3-1 triumph Monday night. The hig left-hander fanned seven Angels and blanked them until second baseman Eddie Leon dropped what would have been the game-ending popup, al- lowing Syd O'Brien to scoot all the way home from first. Hick Clark held the Tribe to just six hits through eight in- nings before McDowell and Ted Uhlaender opened the ninth with Minor baseball The Dodgers Wasted their way into the finals of the Nor- crest Little League Monday with a convincing 12-2 triumph over the Astros.

The Milwaukee Brewers game at Boston against the Red Sox was rained out. The Angels, ripped apart ear- lier this season by dissension, had been putting their game to- gether since the suspension of moody Alex Johnson and the re- tirement of Tony Conigliaro. "Morale is good and we're getting real good California manager Lefty Phil- lips said before Ms troops faced McDowell. McDowell, who went through a spring training salary dispute and early-season pitching prob- lems, boosted his record to 9-9 as l.a shrugged off the whopping fine. The hurler and manager clashed recently when Mc- Dowell, selected as a pitcher for the All-Star game, was scratched by Dark due to a sore shoulder. after giving chase to Banquet Knight.

Saskatchewan got; the ball in good field position in the dying minutes after tagging Edmon- ton quarterback Rusty Clark with two big losses and forcing the Eskimos to punt from deep in their zone. But, while Wyche led the Riders to the Edmonton 22-yard line, he threw right into the arms of Griffin to nullify the drive. Saskatchewan grabbed an early lead on a 16-yard touch- down pass to Gord Barwcll and led 7-3 at the end of the first quarter. Edmonton bounced back to grab a 14-14 tie at half- time and the teams were tied 21-21 after three quarters. A 41-yard field goal by Dave Cutler, his third of the game, at 4 45 of the final quarter stood up as the winning margin. His other field goals came from 27 and 34 yards. Terry Swarn got both Edmon- ton touchdowns on 72-and 25- yards passes, the first from starting quarterback Don Trull, the other from newcomer Harry Theofiledes, who saw limited action. Cutler kicked two con- verts and a single to round out the Edmonton scoring. Gord Bartvell hit pay dirt twice on 16-and nine-yard passes from Ron Lancaster with fullback George Reed, who was shaken up in the final seconds, getting a third on a two-yard run. Guard Jack Abendschan con- verted all three. There were five fumbles dur- ing the game, three by Ottawa and two by B.C., as well as three interceptions and a stolen ball. Meanwhile the British Col- umbia Lions scratched and scrapped to their first Canadian Football League victory of the season Monday night, a 22-20 exhibition victory over Ottawa Rough Riders. While the action have been much pleasure for the coaches of either team, the game provided just about every- ting for a fourth-quarter fist fight be- tween linebacker George Ander- son of the Lions and guard Dave Braggans of the Rough Riders. Both were ejected from the game. But by and large it boiled down to a kicking duel between left-footed Ken Phillips of the Lions and tiny Ivan MacMillan of the Riders. Phillips kicked three field goals and a convert on Josh Ashton's fourth-quarter touch- down while MacMillan booted two field goals and converted touchdowns by Dennis Duncan and Dave Pivec. Phillips field goals were from 17 yards, 24 yards and 11 yards while MacMillan kicked from the 19 in the third quarter, then brought the fans to their feet by clearing the crossbar from 48 yards early in the fourth quarter. In Montreal rookie Jim Ohasey, battling to win the No. 2 quarterbacking job with Montreal Alouettes, turned on some passing wizardry Monday night to lead the Als to a 20-9 exhibition Eastern Football Con- ference victory over Hamilton Tiger-Cats. C h a s e y, 22-year-old import from Dartmouth college, took over (he signal-calling in the second half with Montreal trail- ing 9-6 and threw touchdown strikjs to Moses Denson and Bruce Van Ness.

Sanguillcn's optimism is un- derstandable. It was Uie first game Iho Pirates had lost in 12.

The Angeles hitting spree not only laid the Pirates" 11- gamc winning streak to rest, but also wake the Dodgers out of a recent lethargy. They had only scored four runs in their last four games.

The Als have lost exhibition games to Toronto Argonauts and Cal- gary Stampcders as well as the CFL All-Star contest last month. Hamilton, now 0-3 on the exhi- bition circuit, squeezed all their scoring into the second quarter with veterans getting them the points. Carney Henley intercepted a pass at the Alouette 33 and raced over for a touchdown. Tommy Joe Coffey converted it and added two singles on wide field goal attempts.
