Diirelle Wants Title Back WINNIPEG (CP) Rene Du- relle, the 25-year-old boxer from Bale Ste. Armc, N.B., says the championship is his and he's here to "get what belongs to me." Durelle meets Winnipegger Al Sparks, holder of the title, in a 12-round title match Saturday at Winnipeg Auditorium. It's the third meeting between the two, and the rubber match. They split in their first two meetings, Durelle getting the nod in Halifax and Sparks in Toronto. For the last two years since j the Toronto match Durclle has been "suffering." j "There wrere thousands at t Hist fight in Toronto and there wss plenty of boos when Sparks j won. That's why i don't -vant ajiy part, of a decision here in his hometown. "If I couldnt win by a deci- sion there, I know I won't win by a decision hero. .So I'll have to go in there and belt him out.

The Oilers were clobbered by Oakland Raiders. Trull called one play in the game and lost his job.

Trull isn't worried about the cold Sunday "I don't really mind it. Twenty or 3D degrees up tore doesn't seem as cold because it's drier. Cold doesn't seem to bother my throwing. It's ii wet ball that isn't The big thing against Calgary, he said, "is not so much how ir.any points we can score but not to give any away." STAMPEDERS FAVORITES The bookmakers have made Calgary three-point favorites to become Ihe first third-place team to capture the WFC semi- final since 1X3, when Saskat- chewan Roughriders turned the trick. The playoff was a two- game, total-points affair then, but was switched to a sudden- deatli game in 1965. The Eskimos have played six semi-final games at home, three against Calgary, and won most of them easily. But only one was a' sudden-death encounter, a 4-1 verdict over Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1951. The others were part of two- game, tolal-poinls series. Ed- monton beat Calgary 30-7 in 1032, Saskatchewan 31-1 in 1958, British Columbia Uons 41-7 in 1959, Calgary 30-7 in 1960 and Calgary 18-17 in 1991. The victor in the snmi-final will face Saskatchewan in a best-of-three final, which starts in Regina Saturday, Nov. 14. History frowns on the Slam- peders' chances of going all the way to the Grey Cup game in Toronto Saturday, Nov. 28. Only once before lias a club which finished third during the regular season turned the trick, the Blue Bombers in 1953. lions Seek Radio Rights hi The West VANCOUVER (CP) Gen- eral manager Denny Veitch of the British Columbia Lions said Thursday the Canadian Fpotball League club has made a bid for radio rights in the Western Conference.

Moffatt Broadcasting bought the Western Conference rights three years ago and, under the agreement, teams, in the con- ference get the same amount of money. The Lions believs their rights are worth more than the other teams in the west. Veitch says the rights should be sold on a national scale, but Eastern Conference owners, with lucrative contracts sold by each club, oppose the idea. "The way it is now, it's just another method of equalization in the he said. "The other clubs won't let us sell oui rights as an individual club, so we're attempting the next best thing.
