Junior Miners bow in semi-final Spikes take junior tourney By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Junior Miners may not have won the Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League playoff tour- but they did seem to have quite an effect on the final outcome Sunday at Henderson Park. The Junior Miners forced the regular season champion Calgary Junior Giants to come from behind to win the semi final and that game seemed to take all the starch out of the Giants. They got blown out of the park in the championship final as the Calgary Golden Spikes won the title by a 22-4 count. That marked the second time in two days that the Spikes had beaten their Calgary rivals. They edged the Giants 5-4 in a second round contest on Saturday. The final was a as the who finished just ahead of the Junior Miners in fifth place in league got to four Giant pitchers for 17 seven of which went for extra bases. Frank Hornby led the Spike attack with a double and single while Ross Lepage blasted a triple and two singles. Mike Rogers also got to Giant pitching for a triple and single. John MacLaughlin managed a triple and a single for the losers while Bob Viccars add- ed a pair of singles. Viccars started for the Giants on the mound and was tagged with the loss while Barry Poffenroth was credited with the victory. the Junior Miners' Cinderella story end- ed in the seventh inning of their Sunday game against the Giants. After finishing last in league they were the surprise of the tournament in advancing to the semi finals. They lost their opening game of the double-knockout tournament 13-7 to the Golden Spikes last weekend in but came back to whip Vaux- hall 14-6 here last Thursday to stay alive. they scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday to edge the Acme Pirates 4-3 and advance to the semi final against the Giants. The locals appeared to be in control of that one as leading 6-2 after six but four singles and a double by Kevin O'Neil helped the Junior Giants to score four runs and tie the game in the seventh. Bob Viccars ripped a bases loaded double in the eighth frame to drive in the three runs which proved to be the winning margin. Mike Juilfes cracked out four singles for the Giants while Rick Hindmarch had a double and single. Viccars had a single to go along with his game winning double. Five Junior Miners had one single each. Max Findlay was credited with the win while Jon Petrunia was tagged with the loss in relief of starter Mylo Stromsmoe. Petrunia was the story of the game Saturday against Acme. He fired a three hitter at the Pirates and drove in two runs with an infield single to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth. Jim McLellan's single mov- ed Petrunia to and then Dave George blasted a double to drive in the winning run. Acme scored all three of their runs in the second in- on a pair of errors and singles by Grant Little and Ron Pieschel. McLellan and George each had another single to go with their clutch ninth inning hits while Gary Pieschel had a double for Acme. Petrunia struck out six en route to the victory while Bob Bates took the loss. In Saturday's other Dave MacRae's bases loaded double sparked a four run eighth and the Calgary Golden Spikes held on to nip the Giants 5-4. The Giants almost came scoring a pair of runs and getting the winning run on second but Barry Poffenroth came in to relieve starter Mike and he got the final out on a questionable play at first base. MacRae also had a pair of singles for the as did Blaine Wickerson. Bob Vic- cars belted a double and two singles for the Junior Giants. who is the same Mike Rogers who played for the Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey was the winner while Ken Walker took the loss.
