Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
-Tuesday, May 12, THE LJTHBRiUGE HERALD 9 WINNER AND LOSER Donald Paduano of Montreal, right, has words of consol- ation for Marcel Cerdan Jr., left, of France, following their 10-round, non-title welter- weight bout in New York Monday evening. Paduano, despite the cut over his eye, won an unanimous decision. Cerdan Gave It His All Paduano Victorious NEW YORK (CP) They waited all night in France to see if the legend of Marcel Cer- dan was to live the late French hero's son, They got their answer through the lightening fists of Donato Pad- uano, but they had reason to cheer even in Cerdan's defeat. Marcel Cerdan Jr., often ridi- culed by his countrymen in the ring, fought the fight of his life against the Canadian welter- weight champion from Montreal and, except for cornerwork on a badly damaged eye, could have come but on top. It was 3 a.m. in France when the fight was televised there via satellite and many a French- man stayed up to watch the fight. The late Marcel Cerdan won the world middleweight title in the U.S. when he knocked out Tony Zale in 19-18. Tie younger Cerdan had run up a string of 48 fights without a loss until his first test against a name fighter Monday night in Madison Square Garden. Paduano, consi- dered one of the most-gifted boxers around today, had to battle all the way to win a unan- imous ID-round decision. PKAISBS CEKDAN Paduano said Cerdan Is "a very good better than some people think." "1 took control in the fifth and my body punches confused Paduano said. "But I did not give 100 per cent of myself. If I had, I would have surely knock1 u him out." Cerdan had other ideas about the decision that went against him. "I figure I won the first five said Cerdan. "I knew Paduano would come out strong in the late rounds and that is why I built up an early lead. "He won the next four rounds and I am sure I won the last and should have been judged the winner." Paduano is willing to meet the Frenchman again and Garden promoter Harry Markson said he is working on a return bout for early September in the Gar- den. Paduano does hot agree with Cerdan's claim he was deprived of victory. Corrigall Signs With Argonauts TORONTO (CP) Jim Corri- gall, who won All-America men- tion with Kent State, anji was drafted second by St. Louis Car- dinals, turned down the Na- tional Football League Club Monday and sighed with To- ronto Argonauts of Hie Eastern Football Conference. Corrigall signed two one-year contracts with the Argos, terihs undisclosed. The Barrie, Out., native did not take part in an organized football game until attending Seollard Hall in North Bay, Ont., in his final high-school year. A knowledgeable priest saw htm play and gent him to the training camp of Hamilton Ti- ger-CatSi From there he got several offers of athletic schol- arships and chose Kent. The Canadian Football League subsequently ruled that Corrigall, 22, was Toronto prop- erty. As a defensive tackle Corri- gall a spot on the all-Mid- America Conference first team in Ms second year. He repeated the next year and made the team in his senior year as a linebacker. In 19G9 he was picked as an AU-American by a wire service, a selection conducted by pro scouts. "I thought I would knock him said the Italian-born Cana- dian; "But he had a lot 'of heart going for him." Ceitlan started as if deter- mined to show his countrymen how wrong they were about his ring ability. His quickness ol foot and hands had Paduano be- wildered in the early going. The first three rounds had the French entourage in the Garden cheering. Cerdan was snapping two, three and four jabs at a time and Paduano seemed to have no defence. But then after1 an even fourth round, an accidental butt in the fifth seemed to change the tide of battle for the Canadian. Pad- uano was all over Cerdan, seemingly desperate because of the cut. .Dr. Edwin E. Campbell of the New York state athletic 'com- mission looked at Padiiano's eye between the fifth and sixth rounds and let the fight go on. In the seventh, Cerdan proba- bly took more punches than he had ever thought imaginable. The eighth and ninth proved lit- tle different as Paduano was throwing every punch in the missing few, SLUGGED TOE TO TOE The -10th round showed Cer- dan in desperation and the two fighters slugged it out toe to toe from start to finish to the de- light of the wildly-cheering crowd. Both fighters had the crowd giving them a standing ovation halfway through the known in New York in many years. The crowd of which paid rose and cheerec the two blood-spattered fighters as they battled away at the ending the.fight. Each weighed 147 pounds. Cerdan got a flat for the fight while. Paduano was guaranteed or per cent of the gate and all ancil- lary rights. The Orr Family A Closely Knit Group Penny Is Proud Of Her Brother Bo LYNN, Mass. (AP) Bobby OIT of the Boston Bruins always tiad one goal in be a iockey player. IBs 18-year-old sister, Penny Orr of Parry Sound, Ont., calls him "a born hockey and gives some additional in- sight into the personal life and the making of the Bruins' super- star. Penny was only 11 when Bobby left home to play for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A Series. "All I remember was the con- troversy about him being so she says. "What's it like being the sis- ter o[ a famous hockey star? "Being Bobby's sister I've met a lot of great people that I would never have had the op- portunity to meet. I'm very happy and proud. All the girls talk about him, but I've never really had anyone approach me to arrange a date. "Our faUier works at Cana- dian Industries Ltd. A younger brother, Bougie, 15, is a terrific baseball player. Kon- nic, my oldest brother, and his wife June own a clothing store in town. My oldest sister Pat and her husband Gerry live in St. Catharines, Ont. EXCITED OVEIl BABY "Pat is a registered nufse, but isn't working now, as she just had her first baby. When we phofted to tell Bobby he was an uncle, he was so excited, he stuttered and stammered. You would've thought it was his own. "We are a very close family. We miss Bobby very much. We all talk to him about three times a week, but it's just not the same as having him home." How docs Bobby relax? What are some of his other interests? "He loves to fish. All summer long he and my father fish. He golfs. He's going to teach me this summer. And he really en- joys doing jigsaw puzzles. When he had his knee hurt, he did two of the big jigsaw puzzles." Penny, a junior in high school, visited her brother at his Lynnfield home last Christmas. "Bobby is a great she said. "He finds his way around the kitchen very satisfactorily. The only thing I did was open the creamed corn and put it on the stove." Penny always looks forward to the end of the hockey season when her brother returns home. "When Bobby comes home in June, we all sit up half Hie night talking; and it s c e m-s that everyone wants to tell him something at the same time. "I'm so proud of Bobby, I could just bust sometimes." Detroit Pitching Staff Shoiving The Strain McGinn And Mates Give Seaver First IBs By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Dan McGinn was Montreal manager Gene Mauch's idea of a surprise but the Expos' re- liever, making his annual start, astonished New York Mets and turned out to be a stopper, too. The hard-throwing southpaw, making his 100th major league appearance, but only his second started once last year a brilliant three-hitter in blanking the Mets 3-0 Monday night. In the process, the 26-year-old reliever snapped Cy Young Award winner Tom Seaver's regular-season winning streak at 16 and temporarily put the skids to the Expos' slide in which Montreal has won only three of its last nine games. In other National League ac- tion, Atlanta Braves nipped Chi- cago Cubs 7-6 in 10 innings, Pittsburgh Pirates whipped Cin- cinnati Heds 4-1, St. Louis Car- dinals zipped Philadelphia Phil- lies 3-0 aid in 14 innings San Francisco Giants downed San Diego Padres 6-5. McGinn, who appeared in 74 games last year with the Expos and had a 7-10 mark, made his 12th appearance this year and increased his record to 2-1 with Ms fkst major league complete game. "All I heard all day was 'You're going against McGinn said. "I guess I was psyched up. Pitching against a guy like that can do it." Mauch switched to McGinn in- stead of scheduled starter Carl Morton, explaining that his un- beaten right-hander had pitched three tough games in a row, the last only three days ago and the extra day's rest would help. fieaver, the 25-year-old right- hander who hadn't lost a regu- lar-season game since last Au- gust, said: "You're never overjoyed to lose but I haven't lost in a long time biit you don't forget how it feels." McGinn got all the support he needed when Jim Fairey cracked a solo homer in the sec- ond inning. John B a t e m a n added a run-scoring double arid Marv Siaehle an HBI single as the Expos clipped Seaver for eight hits. Seaver, however, struck out 12, increasing his major league strikeout lead to 72 as the Mets dropped their fourth game in five starts. Atlanta topped the Cubs on Hank Aaron's loth-inning homer, helping the Braves to their 12th triumph in 13 games. It was Aaron's fifth home run six games and his 14th of the season. Rico Carty, the Braves' left fielder, extended his hitting string to 29 straight games with a run-scoring single in the sev- enth. Meanwhile cracks in Detroit's pitching and the crevices in Milwaukee's infield have thrown Mayo Smith for a loss and left Dave Bristol fit to be tied. Ch i c a g o 's normally meek White Sox, who had scored a total of eight runs while losing their previous four starts, mus- cled up against five Detroit pitchers Monday night and pounded the Tigers 9-5. A t Milwaukee, meanwhile, ninth-inning fielding lapses and a rainstorm combined to inter- rupt the Brewers' five-game winning streak as New York Yankees came from behind to earn a 5-5 standoff. In the only other game en the American League schedule, Cal- ifornia nipped Boston Red Sox 2-1 in 16 innings despite a rec- ord-tying strikeout string by Weyburn Needs Win The End In Sisht MONTREAL (OF) Coach Roger Bedard and his Montreal junior Canadiens are anxious to end the hockey season and they have a chance tonight in the fourth game of the Memorial Cup hockey final.

"They gave their ultimate ef- fort, and they said Cana- diens left winger Richard Mar- tin. "We want to get this season over with and now." "One more game and then the added team-mate Bobby Guindon. "I'll be glad when this season is over." Weyburn coach Stan Dunn feels his club can still win a game in the series. "Our guys want to win a game here so that we won't feel disgraced. It would be quite a feat to beat Montreal and I know our guys are going to do their best." Montreal is bidding to become the third team to win the Mem- orial Cup in two consecutive years. Last year, the Canadiens defeated Reglna Pats in four games to capture the champion- ship. Other teams to win the na- tional junior championship two years in a row were Oshawa Generals in 1939 and 1940 and Toronto Marlboros in 1955 and 1956. Both Oshawa and Tdronto are members of the QHA, The OHA has won the national title eight times in the last dec- ade. Both teams may be forced to make the lineup changes for to- night's game as the result of in- juries suffered in Sunday's con- test.
