Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, June 3, 1974 DIB YOU KNOW? That it costs no more to make all your travel arrangements through a travel agent. The Herald Sports LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. 7th StrMl Shopping Mail PtilM (403) 328-7411 S.C.M. TYPEWRITERS Good stop Lethbridge Junior Miner's first baseman, Jim McLellan, had to be sharp on this pick-off play with the ball being thrown a little wide. McLellan and his team-mates weren't sharp enough though as they lost a doubleheader to the Calgary Giants in Alberta Junior Baseball action at Henderson Park Sunday. Brack named winner after inquiry EDMONTON (CP) After an hour-long inquiry, Bill Brack of Toronto was named winner of the Edmonton race in the Canadian Driving Championship series here Sunday. Bertil Roos of Sweden took the checkered flag with Brack second, but a 30-second penalty to Roos for passing Brack under a waved yellow flag dropped Roos to fourth place in official standings. The official winning time was 1 hour, 39.7 seconds. Neither driver finished the first race of the series last week near Vancouver. Bruce Jensen of Agincourt, Ont, was officially placed second and Dave Morris of Edmonton ended in third. Fifth was Bob Brown of Hicksville, N.Y., who took the lead in series point standings with 39 points. Brown finished second in the opening race. Brack and Al Lader, who won the first race of the series but did not compete here, are tied for second with 30 points each. Jensen has 24. Morris is fifth and the leading rookie ,with 21 points. Next race of the series is set for Gimli. Man., June 15-16. Roos passed Brack on turn six of the 2.5-mile track under a caution flag early in the race, shortly after Wink Bancroft of Anaheim, Calif., had spun out. The Bancroft car was left resting beside a concrete wall directly beneath a bridge to the track infield. "It was a dangerous situ- said Brack. "Many, many people saw it and it was the only decision they could make. "I didn't really have my heart in chasing him after that because I knew what decision they'd have to make, I just made sure I was four seconds or so ahead of Jensen."

That's what the Lethbridge Junior Miners must have been thinking after two heart- breaking losses Sunday at Henderson Park. Twice they carried leads into the ninth inning, and twice they finished up on the short end of the final susre. The Calgary Junior Giants rallied for three runs in the ninth to take the opener 14-12, and then ran off with the nightcap 16-14 after a five-run outburst in the final frame. John MacLaughlin was credited with both wins for the Giants. He pitched a total of seven innings in relief. Allan Korth suffered his second loss of the young season in the opener, while Harvie Pocza took the evening defeat for the Miners. Local MP Ken Hurlburt was on hand to officially open the Junior Miners' home season in the Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League. Hurlburt threw the first ball against batter Councillor Cam Barnes, who was representing the City of Lethbridge. Following the opening ceremonies, the clubs hit the field and the Miners jumped off to a 2-0 lead after the first inning. Lots of action followed, but the end result left something to be desired as far as Miner coach Doug Frier was concerned. Led by Bob Viccars, the Giants pounded out 31 hits against Miner pitching in the two contests. Viccars had four singles in the first game and added a triple double and single in the r utcap. For the IVi.ners, Terry Pocza poked a double and three singles in the opener while Greg Hamilton added two doubles. In the evening match, Dave George was outstanding for the locals as he swatted two doubles and two singles. Pocza and Hamilton each had a double and single. Both games were extremely tough ones to lose. In the opener, the Miners had rallied for five runs in the eighth inning to take a one-run lead before surrendering three counters in the ninth. The locals attempted a comeback in the bottom half of the frame but left the tying run stranded on second base. In the nightcap, they had a 13-7 lead after seven innings before the Giants warmed up their bats. The Miners' next league action will be next Sunday when they meet the Calgary Golden Spikes in a doubleheader at Henderson Park. FLY BALLS Outstanding fielding play of the day had to go to Dave George for his diving catch of a fly ball in deep right field which turned a SWITCHES TEAMS BIRMINGHAM. Ala.

Kveder Pat Price eyes a Ferrari after signing big pact TORONTO (CP) Pat Price was asked if he would follow the style of many other rich young hockey players and buy a new Corvette. "No, mine will be a said Price after he was made the first choice Friday in the World Hockey Association amateur draft and then signed by Vancouver Blazers. The 19-year-old defenceman from Saskatoon Blades of the Western Canada Hockey League signed a five-year contract with the Blazers worth a reported million. Blazers general manager Joe Crozier also announced the signing of centre Ron Chipperfield from Brandon Wheat Kings of the WCHL. Chipperfield had been chosen by Vancouver in the WHA's secret-negotiation draft two months ago and was also se- lected by California Golden Seals in the first round of the National Hockey League draft Tuesday. Price was one of 209 players from amateur teams, univer- sities and colleges from across Canada and the United States chosen in the 19-round, 2V2-hour session by the WHA's 15 teams. Indianapolis Racers, an ex- pansion club scheduled to start play this fall, had second pick and took Mike Will of Edmonton Oil Kings, also of the WCHL. Cincinnati Stingers, a team scheduled to start play in the 1975-76 season, followed by choosing Don Larway from Swift Current Broncos. Larway, a 46-goal scorer for the Broncos, was Boston Bruins' first-round choice in the National Hockey League's secret amateur draft earlier this week. Michigan Stags, formerly Los Angeles Sharks, drafting fourth, chose Bill Reed of Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series. Reed, 20, admitted at the conclusion of the draft that he had already signed a five-year contract with the Stags before the draft began. He would not disclose details of the contract. Phoenix Roadrunners, an- other expansion club making its debut this fall, had fifth choice and took Dennis Olmstead from the University of Wisconsin. Olmstead's father Bert is a former player in the National Hockey League. The Roadrunners originally had first choice, but passed to the Blazers, presumably be- cause Vancouver had already signed Price to a contract. Phoenix then maintained the Blazers' fifth-place pick for the first round. San Diego Knights, Sabres announce names of players BUFFALO (AP) The Buf- falo Sabres announced Saturday the names of 12 players chosen last week in the National Hockey League's secret draft of amateur players.

Gunter sinks Royals By THE CANADIAN PRESS Nancy Gunter's singles win and a men's double victory led Cleveland Nets to a 27-24 triumph over Toronto-Buffalo Royals Saturday in World Team Tennis action. Miss Gunter defeated Wendy Overton 6-2 before Clark Graebner and Ray Moore beat Tom Okker and Mike Estep by the same score to clinch the victory for Cleveland, which dropped three of the five sets. In Saturday's other WTT matches, Florida Flamingoes defeated Hawaii Leis 28-23, Pittsburgh Triangles whipped Baltimore Banners 27-14, Minnesota Buckskins tripped Philadelphia Freedoms 29-22 and Los Angeles Strings dropped New York Sets 29-20. Betty Ann Grubb and Cliff Drysdale sparked the Flamingoes to win in their first three matches, Drysdale winning in men's singles ant Miss Grubb winning in women's singles and then teaming with Laurie Fleming for a women's doubles triumph. Evonne Goolagong and Ken Rosewall led Pittsburgh to its sixth win in a row while the Atlantic section-leading Freedoms lost their first of the season after 12 victories. Marita Redondo suffered her first loss of the season for Los Angeles but the Strings came back to record their seventh straight victory.
