Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Blue Bombers at home to Ottawa Monday Defence powers Stampeders past Riders REGINA (CP) Calgary Stampeders opened Uieir West- ern Football Conference season on a winning night, blanking Roughridcrs 21-0. .note Friday Saskatchewan The Stampeders weren't ex- actly a whirlwind on offence, but the defence stopped Saskat- chewan cold forcing two costly errors that allowed Cal- gary to canter to victory. The Roughriders never got past the Calgary 40-yard line and handed the Stampeders a couple of gift touchdowns through a pass interception and messed-up fake punt. To make matters worse, three Saskatchewan players had to head for the dressing room early after being pounded by Stampeder tacklers. Defensive halfback Bob Pearce and end Nolan Bailey, who dropped a pass on the fake punt from the Saskatchewan 11- yard line, left in the second quarter and backup quarter- back Bubba Wyche was knocked to the sidelines in the fourth. Ron Lancaster, the Riders ve t e r a n signal-caller, just wasn't clicking before fans. One of his early passes wobbled into the hands of Cal- I gary linebacker Joe Forzam and the Stampeders promptly made it 7-0 when Jerry Keelinj threw 27 yards to John Senst. By the time the s e c o n i quarter was half over, the frus traded Roughriders apparently were willing to try anything. In this case, it was a fake punt by Alan Ford deep in Saskatche wan territory. For a few seconds, the strat OFF TO MOOSE JAW The Lakeside Little league All-Stars earned the rifjht to advance to Moose Jaw for the next round of western Canada little League action Friday by stopping Norcrest 6-5 in the deciding game of a three-gome playoff.

Take it out on Blue Indians reply for new boss By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Johnny Lipon, Cleveland's new manager, may finally have solved the Vida Blue puzzle- something that has kept the In- dians and the I'est of the Ameri- can League guessing this sea- son. Lipon, who replaced the fired Al Dark as Cleveland manager Friday, told the Indians to at- tack, rather than wait, on the lightning-fast offerings of Blue, and the advice paid off in a 4-1 victory over the brilliant young Oakland Athletics left-hander. The setback saddled Blue with his fourth in each of the season's four months. He has 19 wins. Many of the Cleveland players were swinging at Blue's first pitches, and Lipon said that was partly because he had told the team before the game that the 22-year-old southpaw "is a con- trol pitcher, so swing when you get a good pitch." Elsewhere in the American League, Detroit Tigers rallied for a 4-3 victory over California Angels, New York Yankees stormed back from a 9-1 deficit and beat Minnesota Twins 11-9, Baltimore Orioles nipped Kan sas 0ty Royals 1-0 in a gam shortened to 4% innings by rain Chicago White Sox won its sixtt straight 5-1 over Boston Ret Sox, and Washington Senator edged Milwaukee Brewers 3-2. IN LAST PLACE Vernon Stouffer, chairman and majority stockholder of thi Indians, announced the dis missal of Dark after Cleveland had lost 32 of its last 46 games and fallen into last place in the American League East. Lipon, a former major league infielder and a coach with the Indians since 1968, said he planned no major changes in the team. He wasted no time in putting his own ideas into practice as the Indians tagged Blue for seven hits and four runs in six innings. Three singles and a sacrifice gave the Indians a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Three more singles hi the fourth added two more runs. Blue was removed for a pinch-hitter in the seventh after Dick Green hammered his lott liOmer.

"I'm taking them one at a said Gibson, who evened his record at 9-9 with his- six-hit- ter and third straight triumph. The won-Iost mark is not typi- cal Gibson, but not bad, consi- dering his injured thigh put him on the shelf for three weeks in June. Since his comeback, Gibson has a 5-4 mark, including two shutouts prior to Friday night's triumph in the first game of a twi-night doubleheader at Phila- delphia. Rain washed out the nightcap. In Friday's other games, New York Mets turned back Chicago Cubs 4-0; Montreal Expos beat Houston 7-4 in the first game of a Astros took the second 6-5 in 10 innings, At- lanta Braves turned back San Diego Padres 3-1 in 10 innings, Los Angeles Dodgers bombed Cincinnati Reds 8-2 and San Francisco Giants downed Pitts- burgh Pirates 5-2.

The ball soared into a bevy of uncovered Saskatchewan receivers but Bailey dropped the pass. Keeling passed four yards to Herm Harrison to put Calgar; ahead by two touchdowns. Fullback Hugh McKinnis, the WFC's top rusher in 1970, pu the game out of reach with an 89-yard gallop in the third quarter. Larry Robinson converted al three touchdowns. Keeling had the Saskatchewan defence on the run with his aeri als, completing 16 of 20 for 152 yards. Four went to rookie half back Jesse Mims for 55 yards. Lancaster's dismal recon was 11 of 30 passes completed for 106 yards. Wyche tried to start something in the fourth quarter, but managed to com- plete just one of four passes be- fore he wobbled to the bench after being hit by Calgary's John Helton. McKinnis carried 13 times for 135 yards as the Stampeders tened in 12 first downs with a 340-yard offence. Saskatchewan had 215 yards and 13 first downs. The result left Calgary and Saskatchewan holding a share of first place. The Roughriders defeated British Columbia Lions 14-10 in their season opener. Meanwhile the Winnipeg 31ue Bombers entertain Ottawa Sough Riders Monday night, wping to prove that their 21-20 oss to Toronto Argonauts was merely a first step back to re- spectability. The Bombers, doormats of the Western Football Conference for he past two seasons, will send virtually the same line-up against the Eastern Conference Rough Riders as faced Toronto. But, says head coach Jim ipavital, "we'll have to play better than we did against To- ronto to beat them Spavital says the heart of the Ktawa offence is their passing (Gary) Wood to (Hugh) Hdham combination" an attack he Winnipeg secondary hopes to put a crimp into. With the likes of Ed Ulmer, 'aul Brule, Mickey Doyle and toug Strong patrolling the de- ensive secondary, Spavital 'certainly hopes" his squad will orce the eastern club to think twice about throwing. Ottawa coach Jack Gotta says he Bombers are the most un- der-rated team in the Canadian rootball League, adding "our defensive crew will have to :ome up with another top per- Saturday, July 11, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 ANDY CAPP ormance."

"I'm so relieved that I don't have to go out there and punish myself says the 56- year-old Leonard. "I've abused and annoyed myself long enough." Leonard, who became one of the most respected international players, last month was still searching for whatever it was he lost a decade ago as a tour- ing professional. Then, he decided riot to enter the 1971 British Columbia Open he won for his fifth and final time in 1962.

Very few veterans back for another try Canadian Pan-Am team full of new faces By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor CALI, Colombia (CP) A Flock of new faces have taken over on the Canadian team in the four years between Winni- peg and Call, but two stalwart women are still around to chal- lenge once more for gold med- als. When the track and field com- petition begins today in the Pan-American Games, stocky ?an-Am veteran Carole Martin of Thornhill, Ont., will be aim- ng for her first gold medal in nternational competition going )aek to the 1966 British Empire ;ames. Sunday, Debbie Brill o! Haney, B.C., tackles the women's high jump in her first -'an-Am Games. She's a heavy :avorite to win another gold to ;o with the one she won last year n the Commonwealth Games in Minbur'gh. Another old Pan-Am hand, Jenny Meldrum of Toronto, will attempt next week to better her silver-medal performance o f 967 in the pentathlon. But she rill be strongly challenged by wo fellow Canadians, 17-year- old Debbie Van Kiekebelt of .lississaiiga, Ont., who set a North American record of points, and Penny May of Victo- ria, runner-up with Miss Martin, who works for Lloyd Pcrcival's Fitness Insti- uto in Toronto, is only 23 but ho will be competing in her mirth big inlcrnntionnl meet. She woo a silver at Wianlptf i in the discus, and today faces another stiff fight from a Cuban and three Americans in the dis- cus qualifying rounds. The final is Sunday. The young track and field team is eager to surpass the Ca- nadian showing of four years ago, no easy task against the high-powered American side. In 1967, the Canadian team won 24 medals in track and field, including three gold. The first track and field gold here was expected to be in the lap of Pat Matzdorf, the Wiscon- sin high jumper who startled the world with a record leap of seven feet, 614 inches in a re- cent U.S.-Russia meet in Cali- fornia. But Matzdorf came down with stomach trouble and had to leap from his sick bed to the qualifying rounds that began this morning, with the final sched- uled tonight. The other track gold medal to be awarded tonight will be in the run. Because of the tropical heat, the daily track program is being split into morning and evening sessions, with a siesta afternoon break. John Hawkins of Courtenay, B.C., silver winner at the Com- monwealth Games last year, goes in the high jump and Bob Legge of Oakville, Ont., in the 10.000 metres. Favorite in the second-longest distance race of the Games is Alvaro Mejia of Colombia, win- ner of the Boston marathon last April. Heats and semi-finals are to be run off in the men's 100- anc 400-metre events and in the metres while the women begin qualifying in the 100 metre hurdles, 200 metre sprint, and long jump. The men's dis cus qualifications also are on tap with Ain Roost of Torouti aiming for a medal. Outside of the track and fieli venue, competition begins in II other sports with one more gold to be the flyweigh weightlifting class where Chun Hon Chan of Montreal is mak ing the Canadian challenge.
