Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, July 29, 1971 HOLD THAT MAN Winnipeg Blue Bomber Charles Bryant (29) is ground, during action in CFL season opener in Toronto Wednesday. The tackled by three Toronto Argonaut players, including Gene Mack fore- Argos edged the Bombers 21 -20. Eskimos in Hamilton for game tonight not delected TORONTO (CP) "Almost pulled a Wally, didn't grinned Don Jonas. Hardly a tear-jerking state- ment from the Winnipeg Blue Bomber quarterback who had just suffered a 21-20 setback lo Toronto Argonauts in the open- ing game of the Canadian Foot- ball League season for both teams. But more than fans at Canadian National Exhibition Stadium would have to agree the He enjoyed a memorable game, one that Argo coach Leo Cahill said was "the besl game I've ever seen him con- necting en 22 of JO passes for 301 yards and calling a solid ball-possession game. Th.e he made refer- ence to was another ex-Argo, Wally Gabler. whom Cahill ex- iled to the Blue Bombers before the ]970 season. Gabler returned to haunt the Argos, beating then? in the first meeting be- tween the two clubs last year. II was one of two games won by Winnipeg all year although Gabler subsequently returned East to join Hamilton Tiger- Cats and should get into the ac- tion tonight wher the Ticats open their season at home against the Western Conference Edmonton Eskimos. Rookie running back Leon McQuay scored two Toronto touchdowns, one a 70-yard squirmer through the middle of the Winnipeg defence off what appeared to be a broken play. McQuay, 21, who at 5-11 and 195 pounds is deceptively fast, started to cut into the right side of fhe Bomber defence, saw the hole close in front of him, then sprinted off in the opposite direction. Mel Profit scored Ihe other To- ronto touchdown on a pass from quarterback Joe Theismann who play.ed the last three quart- ers after relieving starter Greg Barton. Kicker Zenon Andrusyshyn, good on only one point-after conversion attempl, boomed sin- gles of 55 and 50 yards, the lat- Winnipeg's Doug i ing-frcm-the-rcar penalty, con' >ver the end zone nectcd on two field goals of 2f ier sending Strong back over the end zoi deadball line with just 81 sec- onds left in the game for the winning point. Jonas scored one touchdown, had another in the fourth quarter called back by a block- Canadians send 400 athletes Cuba boasts stron entry CALI, Colombia (AP) "We will give the Yankees a fight for medals in every a red-shirted Cuban official boasted Wednesday as his counlrymen swarmed the various venues in preparation for the sixth Pan-American Games. "We will have 400 athletes, men and he added. "Numerically, we arc sure we will be bigger than the United States. This is our strongest team ever." The Cubans have been here a week, the first contingent to arrive for the pro-Olympic hemisphere sports spectacle scheduled o start a two-week run Friday. The U.S. Squad will number 380 athletes. The United States won 405 medals in 1962, with 2C2 of them gold. Canada followed with 272 medals and Cuba was next with 129. Canada again will be repre- EXPORT'AJ sentcd by a large contingent, approaching 400, as will host Colombia. But Cuba has let it be known that it plans to move as the No. 1 challenger to America's long-time domi- nance. Relations were frigid be- tween the Yanks and Cubans as approximately 2.300 ath- letes from 30 countries con- gregated in the village and loosened their muscles. A group of U.S. gymnasts stopped at the front of Cuban head .tarters to listen to a bongo concert, but efforts to be friendly brought only cold stares and rebuffs. A photographer sought to snap pictures of the rival ath- letes, whose countries don't recognize each other diplo- matically. "No, you must get permis- sion from our a bi- lingual Cuban said. ed The request was carried to the chief of the Cuban delega- tion. "Wait he said. He never returned. Cuba has two outst anding sprinters in Pablo Montes, who has done the 100-metres in 10.1 seconds, and Hermes Kami r .e z, who twice has clocked 10 flat. waa REGULAR AND KINGS Trap shoot on weekend Saturday and Sunday will be busy days at the Lethbridge Trap Club. i The third annual registered I shoot is set for the local club Saturday and Sunday.

The turning point in the game, mid-way into the final quarter, followed a scries of misfortunes for both clubs. First Jonas' second scoring effort was wiped out by the clip- ping call to another ex-Argo Jim Thorpe, and the Winnipe- gcrs hsd to settle for a single uhen the Bomber quarterback's field goal effort from Toronto's 37 went wide. Bombers' Emery Hicks broke through at the Winnipeg 42 to block an Andrusyshyn punt just five plays later. The Bomb- ers were unable to move the brll and Paul Robson's third- down snap went awry, sending Ed Ullmcr scurrying to make a futile recovery since possession automatically went to Toronto. The Winnipeg defence held, however, an d Andrusyshyn's field goal effort took a circui- tous route wide of the goalposts and came to rest in the end zone near the sideline. Winnipeg safety Paul Brule urged Argo rookie Canadian Bob Hamilton into a no-yards penalty and the Bombers once more Appeared headed for a scoring drive until, on a third- and-one situation, coach Jim Spavital told' Jonas to gamble. ACCEPTS BLAME "A tie is just like kissing your he recalled afterwards 550 while shouldering the blame for the loss. "You might say I blew it electing lo go on third down instead of punting and keeping them away from our end, but we were playing for the win." Charley Bryant's charge into j the firmcd-up Argo line fell six inches short of a first down and on the following series of plays Andrusyshyn fashioned the de- ciding point. Spavital followed up the loss w i t h a verbal lashing of game's officials, particularly on Bryant's third-down plunge that sank the Bombers. He and Jonas claimed Argos' Jim Stillnagon was offside on Ihe play and Spavilal said the game films will corroborate 'hem. TORONTO II WINNIPEG ?t> Palmer, Nicklaus ready ngain Defending kings favored LIGONIER, Pa. (AP) Ar- nold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus ranked as the Ijeavy favorites to repeat as title-holders in the National Team Champi- onship which begins today. Lee Tvevino, the gregarious Super Mex who swept the U.S., Canadian and British Open ti- tles and emerged as the domi- nant figure in the game this year, is threatening on two fronts. He's pushing Nicklaus as the game's greatest performer and Palmer as its most popular player. Neither has made direct ref- erence -.0 the challenge, but it's obviously there. "Lee's been playing super golf, but it finally caught up with Palmer said, refer- ring to last week, when Ti'evi- no's hectic, non-stop pace caught up with him and he j missed the cut for the final two rounds in the rich West Chester Classic. "With the pressures or play ing every day, there just comes a time when you have to said Palmer, who picked up the first prize last Sunday as he scored his third victory of the season. WENT FISHING "I just went fishing for a cou- ple of Trevino said. "I feel fine now. It's surprising how much a couple of days off will help." He has 45-year-old Howie Johnson, a non-winner since 1959 but a consistent money winner in recent year's, as his partner in this event, in which scoring is based on the better ball of each two-man team. The 72-hole test is on the sce- nic yard, par 71 Laurel Valley Golf Club layout, Palmer's home course in these hills of western Pennsyl- t-'ani a and the site of the Palmer-Nicklaus victory a year ago. Among the leading contenders in the field of 64 teams are the ;hree pah's who tied for second ,ast year, former champions Bobby Nichols and George Archer, Gardner Dickinson and 5il-yem-old Sam Sncad, and Or- vilie Moody and Australian Bruce Crampton. Other standouts include CBS Classic champs Bert Yanccy and Tom Wciskopf, Ken Still and Gene Littler, vcte ra ns Miller Barber and Don January, and brothers Dave and Mike Nicklaus and Palmer are the lop heavy choices, however. They've won Ihis event two of Ihe last three nines it has been played and have teamed to win four Woild Cup titles for the United States. Among the missing are Billy j Casper, competing in the Swiss j Open, South African Gary Player and England's Tony Jacklin.
