Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta KTHBKIDSt HMAID Friday, July 30, 197T SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan WEDNESDAY evening 1 think I finally figured >V out- why t like American football better than Pun-Am events often, Games organization is lacking how many of you watched it, what with the Montreal Expos' game on the competitive channel, but it griped me to no end to see Winnipeg lose it under such circumstances. The Blue Bombers lost a narrow 21-20 decision to Toronto Argonauts in an interlocking Canadian Foot- ball League game. They had a chance to tie or possi- bly win but failed in their last quarter efforts What annoyed me, however, was the fashion in which the margin of victory was reached. A single point arising from a punt or a vide field goal is like fighting a guy on cratches. It is from where I sit, the most ridiculous ruling in the CFL rule book. 1 don't suppose anything 1 have to say about it will alter the ruling, but it has to be the cheapest way to win possible in a game full of hard knocks and brUFor almost 50 minutes the Bombers and Argos fought it out in the trenches with one of the best games to come along in some time. The game had everything it takes to make football the exciting name it is It was all entertaining until Argos Zenon Andrusyshyn punted the ball through the end zone I'm not feeling sorry for the Bombers. If you U remember back a few years Charlie Sheppard used to boom them out when the Bombers were in their heyday. What I'm saving is that I don t think it should be allowed at all. A good punter such as is the case in the Amen- can game, can add a lot to a game. The main idea of the game is to keep the opposition bottled up, give them constant poor field position and this is tne fob a punter can do. But to give him, one individual, the power to decide between a tie and a win leaves a great deal to be desired. A field goal, from any spot on the field with 12 euys rushing you, is a skilful part of the game. But a punt for a single point from the 30-yard line is a farce. It's about as exciting as watching somebody stub a toe. A team, any team, deserves a better fate than to lose due to a single point resulting from a punt. This is one part of the Canadian game that could stand to be changed. Lelhbridge Miners are in North Battleford today and will be until Monday, it is hoped, for the Cana- dian junior baseball championships. It is the second straight trip to the national final for the locals. Last year they lost out in Carmen, Man. Miners were scheduled to meet Ontario this morning, a finalist last year. The locals will play five games between now and Sunday and, if they finish first or second, will get a crack at the playoffs. The top two teams in each pool, of which there are two, meet in a sudden death semi-final and final Monday. Miners who had an easy time winning the Al- berta title 'are in the "A" pool along with Newfound- land Ontario, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Is- land! and North Battleford. The "B" pool consists of teams from Quebec, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, British Columbia and Saskatchewan. Action takes place on two diamonds and some has been spent to provide regulation flood lights and extra seats. Should the Miners pull it out, they will arrive home Tuesday and a civic reception has been plan- The locals have a good, solid ball club and they'll be giving it their all in a bid for a national title. Bombs away boys. _______ liy BHUCh U5VETT Canadian 1'ri'ss Sports Editor CALI, Colombia (CP) Four years ago in Winnipeg, the dreams of a few came true. Today, new dreamers begin e two-week task they hope ill at least match the Cana- an experience. Perhaps, even etter it.

Except for some minor inci- dents, tlie tidli Pan-Amer- ican games in llHi'7 were well- organized and orderly. Organiz- ei's earned high praise for a job well-done in handling the hemi- spheric competition for the first time in Canada. Winnipeggers were host to some a'.hletes from 29 countries.

One stroke back of the leaders were a half-dozen golfers, in- cluding Bill Wright Jr. of Ed- monton and Moe Norman of Gil- ford, Ont.

AYLESBURY, England (CP) Canadian athletes turned in strong performances Thursday in the Stoke Mandeville interna- tional competition for parapleg- ics, winning two events and making a good showing in sev- eral others.

For most of the 148 entrants, the first round was not difficult with 32 of them at par or below. But the course promised to be tougher today as course mar- shals made pin placements more trying and set the tees farther back. Tlie tee was just right and the pin in the perfect place for Jim Loftus, 19. when he came to the eighth hole. His four-wood car- ried to the front of the green, skipped to the pin and rolled in for a 218-yard hoto-in-one. The Calgary amateur had a 71 total.
