Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 2, 1974 THE UETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Broncos hosts Sunday to tough Oil Kings Defeat High River 27-23 Friday Picture Butte takes Foothills crown By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor You might think a two-game winning streak is nothing to write home about, but if you can write home about one from Flin Flon, that's something. Lethbridge Broncos return- ed home Friday after a three- Centennials win By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Centennials broke a lengthy drought in the Western Canada Hockey League Friday night against Regina Pats, who started Calgary's dry spell. The Centennials downed Re- gina 5-3 before a small crowd at Regina to end a winless streak that reached 12 games this season. The victory left Calgary in the Western Division base- ment and Regina remained fourth in the Eastern Division, where Saskatoon Blades gain- ed sole possession of first place by whipping Medicine Hat Tigers 9-2 with five third- period goals. Brandon Wheat Kings entered the night tied with Saskatoon but took an 8-4 whipping from Kamloops Chiefs in the only other game. KAMLOOPSs BRANDON 4 First Period: 1. Brandon. McLean 2. Kamloops.

Broncos were stopped 3-fl in Saskatoon but swept the pair from the Bombers in what coach Earl Ingarfield describ- ed as "just solid team ef- forts." Broncos spent most of the day between games in Saska- toon and Flin Flon in the team bus travelling. Ingarfield admitted his club started slow in the first Bomber contest but came on strong to win it and the second game in convincing fashion. "They only scored two goals on us when the teams were at full said Ingarfield. An indication that the Broncos were full value for their triumphs. Broncos will have to be up for their game with Edmonton Oil Kings at the Sportsplex Sunday night at seven. Oil Kings slapped the locals 10-6 in a free-wheeling encounter in Edmonton earlier in the year. Ingarfield would like to see his club make it three straight. While taking nothing away from the Oil Kings, it wasn't one of the Broncos' better efforts the coach felt. If there are any line-up changes they will be of the minor variety. Ingarfield figures to give Jerry Bancks a good chance to show his talents. Bancks is in the third game of a three-game tryout. The second year Calgary Canuck has been burning up the Alberta Junior League of late. The Broncos will no sooner put the Oil Kings on the bus before they start to get ready for the Bombers next Wednesday, Winnipeg Clubs Friday and Medicine Hat Tigers next Sunday. Native Sons in action The Lethbridge Y Men's Native Sons will be out to record their second win of the young Central Alberta Junior Hockey League season tonight when they host Fort Macleod for an p.m. contest at Henderson Ice Centre. The Native Sons opened their season last weekend by dumping Redcliff Cubs 6-1, while Fort Macleod plays its first game tonight. By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer The High River Mustangs made a real barn-burner of it, but their late comeback effort fell just short and the Picture Butte Elks won the Foothills Football Conference cham- pionship game by a 27-23 score at Henderson Park Friday night. The Mustangs, trailing 27-15 with less than three minutes remaining, got a touchdown and a two-point convert from star running back Paul Blayney to narrow the gap and then had several hundred chil- ly spectators on their feet when they recovered a Pic- ture Butte fumble on their own 54-yard line. Five plays later, High River had marched to the 19-yard line, but the Picture Butte defence came up big, forcing Mustang quarterback Ray Tupkai to unload in a hurry and throw three incomplete passes. The Elks took over first and ten and, two plays later, the gun sounded with the Elks reigning as 1974 Foothills champions. The Western Division cham- pion Mustangs had dominated the early going, but failed to get on the Scoreboard when twice fullback Craig Spangler lost the handle on long passes with touchdown written all over them. A third-down gamble which turned into a 63-yard run by Hal Nummi set up the first Picture Butte major late in the first quarter. Only a diving tackle by Wade Cooper at the four-yard line prevented Nummi from going all the way. However, three plays later, John Deak took the ball from Elk quarterback Bryan Heninger and went five yards on an end-around play to open the Leroy Wamsteeker converted to give Picture Butte a 7-0 lead. Early in the second quarter, the Elks took a 13-0 lead on a 43-yard pass and run touchdown from Heninger to Rod Malchow. High River came right back with a touchdown of their own to narrow the gap to 13-7. Paul Blayney went over the goal line untouched from seven yards out to culminate a 54- yard drive that took ten plays, and Craig Spangler converted. Ray Tupkal's 34-yard single cut the gap to 13-8 midway through the quarter and then Tupkai hit Spangler on a 38- yard pass play to put the Mustangs into the lead.

CITY_____ PHONE___ PROV._ Spangler added the convert to make it 15-13 as the two clubs headed for the dressing rooms. The cold weather began to take its toll in the third quarter, as could hang onto the ball long enough to sustain a scoring march. However, early in the final frame, pass interference and roughing penalties on the same play gave Picture Butte the ball on the Mustang 13- yard line. Four plays later, Heninger followed his left guard into the end zone from the one and Wamsteeker converted to regain the lead for the Elks at 20-15. Wade Richardson recovered a Mustang fumble minutes later at his own 40-yard line and, two plays later, Mike Oliver broke a pair of tackles at the line of scrimmage and romped 61 yards for a major score. Wamsteeker connected again on the convert to give the Elks their widest margin at 27-15. Blayney's late touchdown was set up when a high snap forced the Picture Butte punter to run with the ball on third down. He was hauled down and the Mustangs took over on the Elk 38-yard line. A pass on the halfback option from Dave Percifield to Craig Spangler HIGH RIVER'S PAUL BLAYNEY (34) IS HAULED DOWN BY SEVERAL ELKS All happy, may retire CHICAGO (AP) Muham- mad Ali, discarding his bois- terous act, said he was "happy and relaxed" when he arrived Friday in Chicago on the last leg of his trip from Zaire where he regained his world heavyweight title. "Yes, I've thought of retiring, I'm getting said Ali who ealier this week knocked out George Foreman to win back the heavyweight championship. A crowd of about 500 cheered his every move when he alighted from a chartered jet at Midway Airport. "I'm here to see my four children and meet with my leader, Elijah Ali said. Elijah Muhammad is the leader of the Black Muslim sect of which Ali is a strong and vocal follower. Ali, the only man to regain the heavyweight title after never losing it in the ring, de- clined comment on the reported fast count in his eighth round knockout of foreman Wednesday in Zaire. He then was whisked to City Hall where he talked with Mayor Richard Daley about the possibility of a million purse for another match with Joe Frazier for charity. "I'd be glad to fight just for the exercise, if my purse went to a hospital in Chicago need- ed for my said Ali. "But if it just was for myself, I'd like to get out of boxing while I still have a chance and still am halfway good looking." Such a hospital has been a project of Elijah Muhammad.

Blayney was the out- standing individual on the field in a losing cause. He carried the ball 41 times to rack up 273 yards, and also caught a pair of passes for another 24 yards. Altogether the Mustangs rushed for 310 yards and pass- ed for another 149. Spangler was the leading receiver in the game, hauling in five passes for 118 yards. Picture Butte compiled an amazing 438 yards on the ground, led by the 198-yard performance of Hal Nummi, who packed the pigskin 23 times. The Elks will be presented with the Foothills Football Conference Championship Trophy at the league's annual awards banquet at Raymond Wednesday night. YARD STICKS Picture Butte had some troubles in the first half, but once they settl- ed down to their power runn- ing attack in the fourth quarter, their superiority showed through only a cou- ple of breaks put the Mustangs back in the game the out- standing defensive player of the game had to be Picture Suite's Marvin Bebek, who was keying on Blayney and probably made as many tackles as the hard-running back made carries it was High River's first loss of the season they went through five league contests and a pair of playoff encounters un- scathed. SPORT FANS I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW Here's one that's hard to believe there was once a National Football League team that gained NO net yardage throughout a whole game. It happened to the Denver Broncos in a game against Oakland on Sept. 10, 1967 Denver wound up with a minus five yards rushing and passing for that game. That's the only NFL game in history in which a team failed to gain any net yar- dage. Do you have any idea what the average atten- dance was at National Football League games in the league's early years? Well, the first year that the NFL published atten- dance figures was in 1934 and the average atten- dance for that season was per game.
