Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 31, 1971 Lacrosse title up for grabs Wednesday evening Native Sons battle back to force showdown U lias now become a do-or- :lic situation for the Lcthbridgc Native Sons and Calgnry Sham- rocks as they battled to a stalemate alter four games in the Alberta junior lacrosse semi-final playoffs. Both clubs earned victories CHRIS CRAFT Young Chris Evert of Fort Louder- dale, Flo., in action Sunday as she stored a solid victory over Australia's Evonne Goolagong.

Pa. (AP) absolutely Kermit Zarlcy replied when asked how it felt for him and partner Babe Hiskey to break the Arnold Palmer-Jack Nick- laus domination ol the Profes- sional Golfers Association na- tional team championship. "But, you Zarley re- flected, "they probably would have won again if they had teed up." The longshot partners forged a belter-ball score of 66, five under par, in the final round to score an easy victory Sunday. Their 262 total was 22 strokes under par on the Lau- rel Valley Golf Club, Palmer's home course where be and Nicklaus had combined to win the two previous team crowns. Nicklaus withdrew this year because of a badly infected fin- ger. Palmer tapped obscure Jack Lews, 25, as a last-minute replacement and they were a distant 13 strokes back at 275. '1 sure wish I could have played the disappointed Lewis said. "I guess maybe 1 just tried too hard." HAD NO TROUBLE Hiskey and Zarley moved into a share of the lead after 36 holes, took sole control at the end of the third round and wer- en't headed as they strolled in with a relatively unexciting triumph. Johnny Miller and drier Jones, a pair of 25-year-olds, made the only major challenge in the final round that began in Psychological liang-ups are gone Ryim back in top form TORONTO (CP) "The op- position didn't concern me. When you're concentrating, all you're worrying about is run- ning to tho best of your abil- ity." That comment came from Jim Ryun, the Kansas Flash, after he ripped through the mile in at Saturday night's 90th annual Metropolitan To- ronto police games. A crowd of the largest ever for the meet, watched as Ryun overshot his own world record for the distance, estab- lished In 1967, by a mere 1.7 seconds. Ryun also has the sec- ond fastest mile on record- Si 51.3 in is holder of the world record for the metrcs with a clocking, also set in 1067. Faced with a field of nine other milers, none of world re- pule, Ryun let Dave Quibell of Toronto set the pace for 600 metres and then sat on the heels of Vancouver's Mike McCann before pulling away half-way through the third lap. He went on to win by about 25 yards. His closest challenger was Grant "McLaren, a noted distance runner from London, Ont., who finished in Ryun, beset with psy- chological and physical troubles since finishing second to Kip Keino of Kenya in the metres at the 1968 Mexico Olympics, said he thinks he has his problems sorted out. Ryun explained: "Mexico was altogether different. There I had to battle both the foot altitude as well as a bout of mononucleosis. All I had this year was a psychological prob- lem and that's not too hard to come back from." Ryun's times for the quarters Holidaire. Your private Shangri-la.

By comparison, his clockings in 1967 for his world record were 53.2, 59.8, 53.6 and 53.5. In that race, the first seven finishers were under the four-minute mark. He had rested most of the week after running about 90 miles in practice and added that he felt tired before heading onto the track. He also had been thinking about a clocking all week. "f felt tired before the race to tell the truth, but I guess I wasn't. I really didn't realize I was going that fast. But when I knew I was going to have a good time I put on the pres- sure. "The funny thing is all week long as I rested, I had in my mind." Ryun said. drizzling rain and finished I n cool and cloudy weather. They combined for an eight- under-par 63 and took second at 265. Gibby Gilbert and Lanny Wadkins, one stroke off the pace going into the final 18 holes, finished with a 69 and third at 26G. Lakers edge Oldies "We'll have to do this again. Say August 15 laughed Howie Branch Sunday after- noon al the end of (he Olri- Timers-Lakers exhibition base- ball game. Belter than 300 fails took hi the game, won by the Lakers 5-2, and were provided with a fun filled afternoon of base- ball. Harry Watson coached the Old timers Sunday with help from Ollie Luciani. Bill Kucheran started for the Old Timers with relief help from Ivan Morris and Greg Laiaruk. Other stars who took part in Sunday's game included Vic Stasiuk, John Vaselenak, Wes Bice, Dan lloyer, Jocko Tar- nava, Hec Negrello. Harpo Monyama, Tricky Oi k a wa, Frank Sanders, and Gordon Rice. There was talk In the dress- ing room after the game that possibly a Lethbridge Picture Butte game could be arranged. However, a lot of the players may have changed their minds by this time. Lakers will be in action Tues- day evening in Calgary against the Jimmies and then finish off their initial season in the Alberta Major Baseball League with a home-and-homc series with Red Deer Elks. Only percentage points sep- erate the Lakers and Elks in the standings in their battle for the fourth and final playoff berth. Games on the weekend are at eight Saturday at Henderson Park and two Sunday in Red Deer. In Edmonton Red Deer Elks picked up nine runs off starter Nels Christenson in the first four innings and coasted a 9-2 Alberta Major Baseball League win over Edmonton Blue Wil- lows Saturday night. Pitzer wins EDMONTON (CP) Greg Pitzer. a mod, long-haired 25- year-old Califomian, stroked a ninc-under par 204 to win the Alberta open golf champion- ship. The win earned Pitzer, who has been golfing professionally for only one year, and made him the No. 1 money maker on the 1972 Canadian tour. He won the Quebec Open in June and now has more than S5.600 in earnings to take back to his homo in Pacific Pali- sades, Calif. Four strokes behind Pitzer were 25-year-old John Morgan of Victoria and Elwin Fanning, 27, of Houston, Tex. They re- ceived S937.50 each. Morgan hasn't had a major win yet tliis year, but has earned more than on the tour. Fanning, who won the Gulf Coast Professional Golf- ers' Associalion tournament In the U.S. last year, is a new- comer to the Canadian tour. Tied for fourth at 209 were Don FairficM tl Palm Springs, Cnlif.. and Rafc Bolts of Los Angeles. They each picked up ?525 in prize money. Tommy Aaron and former Masters champion Charles Coody were next with a 64-267 and were followed by four teams tied al 269. Those were brothers Dave and Mike Hill, Colorado neighbors Dale Doug- lass and Hale Irwin, former champions Bobby Nichols and George Archer and Harry Tos- cano and Jim Wiechers. Ben Kern of Toronto and Larry Wood of Illinois shot a 67 Sunday to finish with a 273 total, good for in prize money. FIRST BIG MONEY Hiskey ranked lOOOi on the season's money list, going into this tournament with only But he combined almost per- fectly with Zarley here, each picking up from a total purse of They had 23 birdies in the four rounds, 16 by Hiskcy, and a single bogey. In the team event the score is kept only on the team's better ball on each hole. "It's kind of easy to win when your partner is always on the green, 15 or 2fl feet from the Hiskey said. "When he's in that position you can really go for the pia and try to make a birdie." Zarley, who once challenged Nicklaus for the U.S. Open title only to falter in the closing round, didn't fail this time. He nailed down the triumph with a pair of deuces on the home stretch, putting them out of reach of any would-be challeng- ers. He rolled in a 20-foot putt on the 14th hole and dropped an iron just eight feet short of the flag on the 17th. "It looked like five miles but it was only about two said Jan Ferraris. "My legs were shaking when I hit that one." The daughter of a San Fvan- cisco band leader sank the two- foot putt on the 18th green to register a one-stroke victory over Betty Burfeindt in the Lady Pepsi Open golf tournament Sunday. Miss Ferraris closed a two- over-par 75 on the soggy, yard Indian Hills Country Club course that had been soaked by rain throughout the 54 hole event. It gave her a 221 total and the first prize. The pressure putt on the fin- ishing hole closed the door on a dramatic comeback by Miss Burfeindt, who had started the day eight strokes behind Miss Ferraris and Gail Denenbert, who dropped to seventh place with her closing 79. "I figured I needed a 65 or 66 to said the tiny Miss Bur- feindt, whose five-under 68 was the lowest round of the Ladies Professional Golf Association event. She said she missed a pair of four-foot birdie putts on the 13th and 14th holes. Miss Burfeindt's round In- cluded a five-foot eagle putt on the second hole. Meanwhile, Miss Ferraris missed a 10-foot birdie putt at 17 and needed a par on 18 to win. Her approach landed 35 feet to the right of the cup. Snc quickly lagged it within two feet and made it for her second tour victory in seven years. Deadlocked for third were Jo- celyne Bourassa of Montreal and Marilyn Smith, each at 223. Defending champion Jane Blalock, who has filed a lion lawsuit against the LPGA, finished well back at 232. 6-3 second period lend and went on to defeat the Sons. Miles Cruise tallied throe times for the Shamrocks while Chris Roa and Chris Jones chipped in with a brace. Gerry Gillson and Brent Paul added singles. Bob Monkman led the Sons' attack with two goals while Norm Hall, Kon Boychuk, Bill Shaw and Dwayne Kirchner managed a goal each. The Shamrocks needed only one more victory Sunday to win the semi-final series, but ran into a determined Lethbridge club, who just wouldn't give in. The locals built up a C-0 lead after 14 minutes of play and never looked back. After two periods of action they had the Shamrocks on the ropes with a lead. Boychuk paced the Sons Sun- day with a pair of goals while solo markers came off the sticks of Kirchner, Shaw, Reg Dawson, Lee Fox, Rick Cred- ico, Dave Jackson, Ken Ham- mcrstedt anl Jerry St. Jean. Meanwhile the Taber Ebony Hawks hit the sidelines in their Alberta senior lacrosse best-of- five semi-final playoff series in three straight games. The Calgary Royals whipped the Hawks 10-2 Saturday night in Taber and waxed them 17-3 on their home grounds Sunday. The Hawks had been defeated S4 by the Royals in the opening game of the series last Sunday. In Saturday night's contest Ian Traquair tallied three times for the Royals while Wayne Olsen and Walter Little added a goal apiece. Greg Andrews and Gary Romses replied for the Hawks. It was a complete wipe out Sunday as the Royals blasted the Hawks 17-3. Ken MacDonald and Olsen scored three goals apiece for the Royals while Ken Gregus scored twice and Ken Murray once for the Hawks. Chiefs rally to defeat Giants CANTON, Ohio (AP) Kan- sas City back-up quarterback Mike Livingston ran 39 yards for one touchdown and passed for another Saturday, rallying the sputtering Kansas City Chiefs to a 23-17 victory over New York Giants in the annual professional football Hall of Fame game, first of the regu- lar National Football League exhibition contests. Livington, a fourth-year man, replaced regular Len Dawson late in the first half and sparked the Chiefs from a 10-6 halftime deficit. Jan Stenerud made all three of his field goal tries. Livingston picked up the Chiefs after Dawson failed to move them in the first 28 min- utes. Kansas City's only scoring plays under Dawson were two Stcnerud field goals for a 6-0 lead. Livingston, on a keeper play, shot Kansas City ahead to stay 13-10 late in the third quarter. Running back Wendell Hayes took a seven-yard pass from Livingston that jumped the Chiefs into a 20-10 lead early in the final period. Pete Gogolak kicked a field goal, Randy Johnson passed to Charlie Evans and Norman Snead tossed to Joe Morrison for the New York scoring.
