Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Frldpy, Nov.mb.r 5, 1971 IHt IETHMIDOI HMALD 11 Blues belted in Boston A four goal lead just wasn't enough ahead 6-0 in the dying moments By THE CANADIAN PRESS The spotlight doesn't focus on Don Awrey all that much, what with playing in the shadows ot Orr, Esposito, Green and such. In fact, the Boston Bruin de-ferxvman goes about his business in such a methodical he's known as the quiet man of the National Hockey League club's defence corps. But he proved again Thursday night why he's such a solid force in the Bruin fortunes, coming up with key plavs as the Bruins railed 5-1 over St. Louis the only otner game, BUI-falo Sabres came from four goals down (a tie Detroit 4-4 and remain two points ahead of the Red Wings in their East-Division battle for sixth place. The Bruins got two goals each from veteran John Bucyk and 21-year-old Keg and Frank St. Marseille spoiled goallender Gerry Checy-er's shutout with 20 seconds left in the game.

The former Michigan All- American sank a 10-foot jumper with five seconds to play that gave the Warriors a 98-96 vic- tory over .Seattle SuperSonics night for their fifth In a row and first place in the Pa- cific Division. Russell finished with J 9 points, seven of them coming in the closing minutes to follow up his pro career high of 43 against Baltimore Bullets Tuesday. Jeff Mulllns was high for the Warriors with 22 while Spencer Haywood of Seattle was high for the game with 31. A three-point play by rookie Sidney Wicks with 15 seconds left gave Portland Trail Blazers a 112-110 victory over Houston Rockets in the other game. Wicks, an All-American at UCLA last season, was fouled while making a basket from the corner and sank the free throw. That gave Portland a five-point lead at 111-106 and offset two baskets by Elvin Hayes of the Rockets in the closing seconds. Wicks finished with 31 points, 20 of them in the second Hayes led Houston with 28. that he wanted to say some- tiling to his parents in Puerto Rico. He then spoke in Span- ish.

WORLD SERIES HERO Roberlo Clemente and his wife Vera stand by the car Clemente won as being named the outstanding player In the 1971 World Series. Clemente was under some criticism for his message after the final game of the series. Taylor halfway from career high By THE CANADIAN PRESS At the halfway point in the National Football League regu- lar schedule, flanker Otis Tay- lor of Kansas City Chiefs is half way to matching his peak per- formance of 58 catches for yards in 1966. Taylor never topped yards after that season although ie came close the following year with 958. After that he suf- :ered a pulled groin muscle and dipped to GOO. Last week, with 70 yards against Oakland Raiders, Tay- lor passed Us 1970 total of 618 iDISTIN'CTIVEl I First distilled id I MLBOMJ vards and now, with 30 catches n seven games, has 648 yards jood for second spot among American Football Conference pass-receivers. The NFL weekly statistics show Bill Parks of San Diego Chargers the leader in number of passes caught with 33, bu Parks has gained only 497 yards 'or a 15.1-yard average while Taylor's average is 21.6. Most important, the Chiefs enow they can count on Taylor o make "a big catch when it's needed, often a spectacular one-hander. 'I practise that one-hande( stuff a says Taylor.

I think we can throw to any one if Lenny (quarterback Len Dawson) is given enough 10 said, "and the way our line- men have been playing, they've >een doing the job and that's he big secret." Dawson has been near the top among AFC passers most of the season. He dropped to secom this week in the NFL rating sys tcm based on percentage passes completed, interceptions touchdowns and yardage. Bob Griese of Miami Dolphin has taken over the lead with 7 passes completed in 139 throws 11 touchdown s, yard gained and only three intcrcep lions. Dawson has hit on 81 of 15 pass attempts for 1.3H yards eight touchdowns and had seve intercepted. Bill Kilmer of Washingto Redskins leads National Foo ball Conference passers with 8 completions in 157 throws fo yards, seven touchdown, and five interceptions. Second among NFC quarie backs is Roger Slaubach of Da las Cowboys, having complete 43 of 72 attempts for BSD yard five touchdowns and three inte ccptions.

Louis shots before they could each Cheevcrs as the Blues put on their best skating effort of .he night but were unable lo dent the 2-0 margin Bruins held at that point. Quiet and modest, Awrey, who attracted few votes in last year's all-star poll, believes in letting his skating and checking talk for him. To this end, he observes, it's necessary to work a lot harder between games. "Working hard is all-impor- tant in this he said fol- lowing a workout at Boston. "If you don't work hard in practice you can't do it in a game." Meanwhile, coach Tom John- son has a pleasant problem: What to do with three kids who believe the game is to score. Leach and his linemates, centre Ivan Boldirev, 23, and left wing Garnet Bailey, 23, ac- counted for three goals while seeing only part-time action as the fourth attacking unit. I guess the only way I'll be able to keep them on the bench to tell them to stop Johnson said jokingly. "T h e y 'r e doing everything well They're young, ag- gressive and hungry fore- checking, hitting and back- chccldng. You can't ask for much more." HAD 4-fl LEAD After a scoreless 20 minutes, the Red Wings appeared geared in give new coach Johnny Wil- son his first win as they roared into a 4-0 lead by of the second period on the strength of. two goals by Bill Collins and a goal and two assists from line- mate Nick Libett. But the Sabres recovered and scored two of their own before the period ended, including rookie Richard Martin's 10th of lire season, and tied it up on Danny Lawson's score at of the third period. Wilson, who replaced Doug Barkley behind the Red Wing bench last Sunday and saw his team drop a 6-1 score in To- ronto the next night, had tile Detroiters working strenuously through the week for the Buf- falo game. The Wings peppered Buffalo goalie Roger Crozier with 14 shots in Ihe first period and 15 more in the second but appar- ently ran out of steam. They could manage only five in the last period while the Sabres came on strong for the tie.

Graciella ivera, th first Puerto Rican sing at the New York Metro- olitan Opera and a friend of lemente's, wrote that non- panish speaking Americans lould know what Clemente id and so be able to compre- end "the added dimension" of ie man. Clemente feels he has been lisunderstood for most of his 7 years in the big leagues. He as had a reputation as a hronic complainer of real or magined injuries. "And once ou get an image, no mailer you die wilh that ays Clemente. Once, he recalled, he had een spiked in the arm and oot. Yet he came to bat and it a home-run. One-handed, ne-legged. He walked around ie bases. "I have so much God-given talent that I can play ven when 1 ache so aid Clemente. "My manager :id not understand. He thought was hot-dogging." Clemente is a black Puerto Rican. Tills makes him doubly ubious. His native tongue is oreign to button-down Ameri- a, and so is his color. He has elt as much. He has frequently ,omplained that other Puerto licans and well as been skirled for ndorsements of products and media commercials. "You have to be ie said, "or you can't be 'my weetheart next door.' Prejudices and bogus stories "foreigners." "The jtin player was a hotdog, a nowboat, like Vic Power, they ised to said Clemente. Then he is a had fellow." Clemente likes to say that he J so lacking in flash that he vears virtually no jewelry. "I .m no fancy he says. He is respectful of his great athletic ability, and feels that God gave hini great talent and ie must work hard to maintain t. And also to be an influence on others. In a mild way, there seems in Clemente social responsibility simil. felt by some other sports heroes, most notably Muhammad All. Clemente has plans to uplift Puerto Rican youth. He has be- come interested in ceramics and in a "sports city." 'The common people are fighting the problem of drugs and delinquency said Jlemente. "Sometimes fathers fail because they do not spend enough time with their kids." So he is planning a ceramics school "for the whole family." place in Puerto Rico local fads Of tourists WOllld bej together in a school to learn' and participate in athletics. "Through me lots of people maybe can be said Clemente. "People look up to you when you are in sports. They try to imitate you. That's why this World Series was the most important thing to ever happpen to me." IT'S A ROUGH GAME Although Detroit Red Wings' Arnle Brown he hits the ice solidly he was still able to convert a good pass to a teammate at Buffalo goal. Brown wasn't quite as happy later os the Sabres tied the gams 4-4 afler trailing 4-0 at the Olympic in National League action.
