Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta C THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 29, 1973 Named all around champion cowboy Spotlight falls on Smith at Cardston By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer The spotlight at the Cardston Chinook Circuit rodeo Saturday night fell on Allan Smith of Hel- ena, Mont, and home town calf roper Bill Reeder. Smith was named the all around champion cow'ooy of the two-day, three performance amateur rodeo and also took home tha steer wrestling hon- ors. The capacity crowd Saturday night applauded wildly as na- [tive son Bill Reeder put the wraps on his calf in 11.5 sec- onds and moved into first place in the calf roping. It was the second champion- ship in as many weekends for Reeder as he was also the top roper at the Taber profession- Orphans lose twice Sunday Pincher Creek Alberta Hotel Orphans dropped a pair of Southern Alberta Major Fast- ball League games on their home grounds Sunday. The Orphans were victims of a 7-4 drfeat against the Pic- ture Butte Rae Motors and a 6-0 shutout to the Lethbridge Miners. In the first encounter, Pic- ture Butte rallied for six runs ir. four innings to hand their hosts the loss. Ron Fix earned the mound win but needed relief help from Hartley Phillips in the fifth inning. Ken Kaip was tagged with the loss as he gave way to Mike Metzler. Fix aided his own cause with a home run and a single while Tom Tamura chipped in with a double and a pair of singles. Kaip poked out a double and a single for the losers while Ken Weins belted a double and a single and Metzler a home rim. In the second gafie staged Sunday, the Miners scored four runs in the first inning and went on to blank the Orphans. George Santoni gave up only four hits for his second win of the season while Darryi Leavitt took the loss allowing eight safeties. Corrido Santoni led the Min- ers' offence with a double and a single while Ron Shewchuck blasted a home run. Winning pitcher Santoni also aided his own cause with a pair of singles. Al Gorzitza managed a dou- ble for the Orphans. Meanwhile a board of direc- tors meeting will be held at 8 p.m. at the Lethbridge Hotel tonight. Cosmos blank Apollos al show the weekend previous. Bill earned for his quick tie at Cardston. Allan Smith carted home for being the fastest steer wrestler with a timing of 6.6 seconds and picked up an- other cheque worth for placing second in the bull rid ing. Right behind Smith's winning time in the steer wrestling was a 6.9 second run turned in by Roy Groves of Strathmore. Groves, like Reeder, is a'so I making his presence felt on the Pepitone quits again ST. LOUIS f AP) Joe Pepi- tone, who was obtained by At- lanta Braves in a deal with Chi- cago Cubs on May 19 has de- cided to quit again. Pepitone informed Manager Eddie Mathews of his decision before Saturday night's Na- tional League baseball game with the St. Louis Cardinals. He said that he probably would have quit regardless of what team he had been traded to. He said that he had many personal problems and ex- pressed the desire to play ball in Japan. He called General Manager Eddie Robinson in Atlanta after announcing his decision. Last season, Pepitono quit the Cubs in May but returned in July and batted .262 in only G6 games. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Joe Fink wasted little time making himself known to his North American Soccer League rivals. The New York Cosmos rookie, playing his first game of the season, scored three goals Sat- urday to pace a 5-0 victory over Atlanta Apollos. The win moved New York into a first-place tie in the East- ern Division standings with I Philadelphia. Rochester Lancers over- powered St. Louis Stars 3-1 in the only Sunday game and Miami Toros and Dallas Tor- nado played to a 3-3 stalemate in the other Saturday contest. Fink opened the scoring at Uniondale, N.Y., and the Cos- mos never looked back. John Forrester and Randy Horton completed the New York rout. The Cosmos put the game out of reach with four second-half goals. The Stars opened the scoring at Rochester with Dennis Van- I inger's goal in the 24th minute. I Fifteen minutss later, Tony Ru- I nac got the equallirer and the j Lancers put the game away with late goals by Florian Gal- lassin and Carlos Metidieri. The Toros needed two goals two minutes apart late in the game to salvage the tie at Miami. Dallas took a 2-0 lead on goals by Ilija Mipic and Nickey Jennings before David Sadler, on a'penalty kick, put Miami on the Scoreboard. Kyle Rote Jr., son of the one- time National Football League star of the same name, made it 3-1 before the two fast goals by Warren Archibald and Ronnie Sharp pulled the Toros on even terms. In exhibition play, Toronto Metros, the NASL's Northern Division leaders, blanked vis- iting Finn Harps of Ireland 4-0 on goals by Bruno Pilas, Gene Strenicer, Joe Schilaldi and Tim Burns.
