ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The Herald Sports Late swing John Seaman is a bit behind the pitch Sunday at Henderson Park. Korth salvages split for Junior Miners By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer "When he's on the mound. I just sit back and enjoy the game." That's what coach Doug Frier of the Lethbridge Junior Miners had to say about Allan Korth on Sunday after the big righthander went the distance in an 8-2 triumph over the Calgary Golden Spikes at Henderson Park. Unfortunately for 300 local fans, other Miner pitchers were not so steady. Four of them combined to hand out 11 walks as the Golden Spikes took the first game of a Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League doubleheader 12-9. Korth gave up the same number of hits as the four afternoon chuckers, but handed out no free passes, and chopped 10 runs off the Spikes' winning total. "The other pitchers seem to get a bit nervous when they get into a tight spot, but Allan just bears down and throws his way out." commented Frier. In the first game, the Golden Spikes poked a triple, two doubles, and three singles, with two away in the fourth Lacrosse The Lethbridge Midget Mohawks won one and tied one in a midget lacrosse doubleheader Sunday at Adams Arena. The Mohawks got four goals from Tony Simioni and three from Paul Byrne as they downed the Calgary Willow Park team 10-8 in one encounter. Rick Wilson added two goals for the locals, while Ken Hall had a single counter. Jim McArthur scored twice for Calgary. Paul Byrne scored six times as the Mohawks fought to a 10- 10 tie with Calgary Tri-Wood. Simioni had a pair while Dave Boulton and John Forilli fired singles for the locals. The Kinsmen Warlords doubled the score 4-2 over the YMCA in a Bantam Lacrosse League encounter.

Greg Hamilton belted his second home run of the season, a towering shot over the centre field wall, and Dennis Halt smacked two doubles for the locals. Dale Woodkey had three singles for the Golden Spikes, who are so-called because of their fancy footwear. In the second game. Korth fanned seven batters, and pitched shut-out baseball until the seventh inning, which was the last by prior agreement of the teams. Brian Veres scored half of the Miner runs, getting on base and scoring each time he went to the plate. He had two singles and walked twice. Dennis Hatt continued his timely swinging for the locals with two singles, each of which drove in a run. George added a two-run triple for the Miners.
