Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 'fait And Charges Are Defending Chinooks In Tri-University Classic Tonight Friday, November 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Jl. Dy PAT SULUVAN Herald Sports Writer The Univcrsily of Lelhbriclge Chinooks mcl willi mixed suc- cess last year in their first year in lire Western Canada Inter Collegiate Basketball League. One of Hie things tiiey did do, however, was win the Tri- University Classic at the begin- ning of the hoop season. Tonight, at the University of Calgary, Logan Tait, lho new coach of the Chinooks, takes liis team onto the court in defence of the title they wor last year. Chinooks, the host Dinosaurs, Univcrsily of Alberta Golden Bears and Ihe University of Saskatchewan Huskies meet in a two day tournament for the title. Chinooks meet the Dino- saurs tonight at nine after Hus- kies and Golden Bears open the event at seven. The (wo win- ners will meet Saturday eve- ning for the championship while the losers play in the consola- tion final. What about the Chinooks o[ 1370-71? "We're said Tait. While it wasn't much to go on the Cliinooks, with Tait at the helm, should be contenders. Last year, under Hobin Fry, the Chinooks missed the play- offs, night now, under Tait, the Chinooks are looking for a play- off berth when the conference season gels under way. Meanwhile, for this weekend at least, the locals will concen- trate Ilicir allnrls vn lire Tri- Univcrsily Classic. "We got the luck of tfic draw the coach said, "I thought for sure we would gel the Golden Bears." Tait has the nucleus of a good sound ball club. They have been hit with one early injury that will hamper their efforts. Bill Magienwsld, a talented guard, will be out of the line-up until after Christmas with a knee injury. Where does the strenglh of the Chinooks lie? Last year Ihe Chinooks could have used more strength on the backboards and this time around seem to have it. Tim Tollestruft, who got his basketball start in Raymond, will be in uniform for the Chi- nooks this season afler spend- ing four years at Utah Slate University. Twice in the four years Tolleslrup was with the club they reached the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) playoffs. Last year they reached the eights before losing to the University of California, Los Angeles. Tollcslnip will be the Chi- nooks big gun and will take the pressure off of hard-work- ing Peter Koocliin. In his Initial year in the Conference Kootch- in had an outstanding season, lie led the Chinooks in scoring and was their main threat on the backboards. With the arri- val of Tolleslmp, Koochin could enjoy an even bigger year. The same can be said for Brian Sanders, a former Dinosaur. Tollestrup stands G'8" while Kootchin is 6'4" and Sanders is A solid front line jn any league. With Magierowskl missing a great deal of the pressure will be en Randy Milner. Together last year !hc two made up one fo the lop guard duets bi the conference. Joining Milner, for the first part of (lie year at least, will be returnee Peter Haig with newcomer Clark SJoan expected to see action. Chinooks are defending champions of the Tri-University event but most of their thoughts are on the coming season. Clunooks will open the home part of the schedule Friday, Nov. 20 against the University of Winnipeg and then the Uni- versity of Manitoba three later. The locals won't play out of town urlil Dec. 4 and 5 when they are on the west coast. ANDY CAPP TCH.'TCH.'TCH.'NOU PROMISED ME 'OU'k DISCUSS THINGS AMICA3UV IN FUTUBB. TRUE BUT I WOULb IF I WASN'T HOLblN' IT.' THEN NOU bON'T NEEC.TH.AT FLO Tough Assignment Van Ness Will Play By TAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Being called on in a key situa- tion is nothing new for Bruce Van Ness, a forgotten man in the recent turmoil hi Montreal that resulted in suspensions to running back Dennis Duncan and wide receiver Bob Mc- Carthy. The two Alouettes were dis- charged Tuesday after it was brought to head coach Sam Etcheverry's attention they had been drinking downtown Satur- day night, the eve of their cru- cial Eastern Football Confer- ence game with Hamilton TJ- ger-Cats. JACK'S PLUMBING SERVES LETHBRIDGE For Estimates Phono JACK FULLER 328-2515 The finai scheduled game fo both clubs ended in an 18-18 tii and not only cost the Als a first-place finish, but they wound up third and lost home field advantage for Hie EFC's sudden-death semi-final hi To- ronto Saturday against the AT gonauts. Van Ness, who will replace Duncan, the conference's third leading rusher in the Als starting backfield for Satur day's game, recalled Thursday he was in a somewhat similar situation last year at the North South game in the Orange Bowl "Terry Bradshaw was there as a quarterback as was Mike Phipps from Purdue. Lots ol guys with big reputations, f was just another somebody from Hutgers." Van Ness was voted Ihe out- standing player in that game but admits nobody is expecting much from him in the Argo game.

PHONE 327-1581 "I look on it as a situation where I have everything to gain and nothing to lose." Toronto's ONE Stadium, site of the semi-fins! clash to be car ried on the CBC's national tele vision network starting at 12 noon MST, is another question mark. Work crews earlier in the week stripped turf from a boggy section of the stadium tha proved treacherous in last Sat urday's Toronto-Ottawa and resodded ihe area for the second time this year- Stadium officials are hopera the repair job will stand up for Saturday's game otherwise they'll face an enormous task putting it in shape for one, anc possibly two, more games this season. If the Argos get by Montreal, one of their final games witli Hamilton will be at home and this year's Grey Cup final is slated for the Toronto field Nov. 20. One Argo hoping for a solid field is halfback Dave Raimey, who finished second in the EFC rushing behind team-mate Bill Symons. Raimey was slowed by a knee injury earlier in the season and said Thursday: "For the first time all year I'm finally all right. And now the field comes up like this." He said the soggy underfoot- ing would be more of a prob- em for him since he's some- what lighter C190 pounds) than running backs in the eague and his style of running 'depends on making a cut." "But when you try to cut on his field the sod gives way." Meanwhile, Etcheverry had his quarterback, Sonny Wade, working on newcomer Bobby Lee Thompson in the Als defen- sive setup. Keeling Or Lawrence? Who Wit! Quarterback Stampeders On Sundav? EDMONTON (CP) A lot of questions will be answered when Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos square off here Sunday in their Western Football Conference sudden- death semi-final. Not the least of these will be answered during the pre-game ceremonies when Calgary coach Jim Duncan names his starting quarterback for the game to be carried on CTV's national net- work starting at 2 p.m. MST. Duncan said Thursday tha "just before game time" he'll decide whether to start veteran Jerry Keeling, who has been sidelined since early October with a cracked rib and bruisec kidney, or start rookie Larn Lawrence, his signal caller the last four games. Edmonton's head coach, Hay .lauch, feels either one can han- dle Ihe job adequately: Keeling because of his vast experience and Lawrence "who has got val Perry Named Top Pitcher NEW YORK (AP) Jim Perry of Minnesota Twins, sue c e e d i n g where his brother [ailed, was named the American League winner of the Cy Young Award today in one of the mosi competitive ballots in the 15- year history of the honor.

The Na- tional leads the American 14-3. In addition, the three teams from the old NFL who movec over to join the 10 American Football League teams in the American Conference, Balti- more, Cleveland and Pittsburgh -have built a 12-5 record against former AFL opponents. But Don Shula, coach of Miami Dolphins and former coach of the NFL's Baltimore 2olts, said; "It would be hard .0 say Ihe NFC is still stronger after what happened in the last two Super Bowls." Simla's Colts lost to New York Jets in one of the bowl games. The leaders in building the Nationals 14-3 record have been Los Angeles, Detroit, San Fran- cisco and New York Giants, all 2-0 against American Confer- ence opposition. Washington is 2-1 and Minnesota, Green Bay, Dallas and St. Louis 1-0. The three American Confer- ence teams who have beaten NFC rivals are Oakland, which is 1-0 vs. NFC opposition; San Diego, l-l, and Denver, 1-2. uable experience and confidenc after winning his last tw games." RESPECT DEFENCES Both coaches expressed re spect for the opposition's de- fences they'll face at Clark Stadium. The Eskimos defeated Ca gary 16-13 with Lawrence quar erbacking and the rookie say Edmonton "has a treraendou lefensive squad" led by player such as John LaGrone, Gre Pipes and Jerry Grittin. Jauch said the Eskimos vrer attempting to come up wit plays to spring on Ihe Stain peder defence but "it's loug their defence reads every Uhing so well." Field conditions may have a waring on the outcome of the first WFC playoff game in Ed monton since 1961. A heavy Oc Lober snow, was scraped ant brushed off, but the process Jef muddy spots that b e c a m frozen. The with field has been covered plastic-type tarpaulin under which warm air is being circulated to thaw the surface. A (hird-place WFC team, in this case the Stampeders, hasn' won a semi-final since when Saskatchewan Rough riders staged a comeback I, beat Calgary by one point in two-game, total-paints series. The Eoughriders, who fin ished first this year and earned bye into the best-of-three :inal, lost Ihe first game by 26 xnnts then won the second in Regina by 11. The WFC adopted a sudden death semi-final in 1965. The Canadian Football League record book shows thai the second-place team, the Eski- mos, has not lost a.WFC semi- final game at home since 1855 when Winnipeg Blue Bombers beat Saskatchewan 16-7 in Re- gina.
