Tuesday, November 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Rougliriders ivill try to draw even at home A lot depends on if Harris is right By JOK WILL CAUJAKY (CP) For a 210- poundcr, Wayne Harris makes a big impression on offensive run- ning backs. When they get the ball, they usually find the veteran Calgary Stampeders middle linebacker in the way, to knock them off their feet. Considering the traffic through the centre of the line, Harris' weight is not formida- ble, but agility and power more than compensate. When the S'lampeders take on Saskatchewan Rough riders Wednesday night in an attempt to wrap up tile best-of-thrce Western Football Conference final in two straight games, Harris says he will have to be at his best. In his 11 years as a profes- Bowling Banter AT CAPRI BOWL, Ed Rossetti steps into the spotlight as the men's bowler-of-the-week by coming up with his finest night of the current cam- paign in Simpsons-Sears, rolling 329-258-300 for the league's high triple of 887 he came back in the newly-formed Major Mixed for a solid 260 average (luring the opening The women's bowler-of-the- week is Jean Christie who is beginning to hit the high spots after somewhat of a slow start she clicked for 325-24-1-263 and an 812 triple in Speedys and hit for a 265 average in opening play in Major Mixed. New League highs for the week included Lorraine Pcrslcy's 702 triple in Higa's, a 212 average by Doro- thy Anderson in B and E Hardware, Ed Rossetti's 887 triple in Simpsons-Sears, Pat Tunstall's 325 single in Morning Coffee and Ruth Cunningham's 742 triple in the same league. Local trundlers are off and winging on what Capri chief Al Pearson calls the best year he can recall and, like a lot of others, he's looking for big things as the season progresses In the YBC Lethbridgc-Mpdirine Hat; four-game challenge, the lo- cals turned on the heat to dominate play Bantam boys won by 462 pins, paced by Doug Vogt who aver- aged 218 Bantam girls won by 308 pins with Brenda Christie the sparkplug with a 209 game The Junior boys were victorious by 354 pins with Tom Passey with a 301 and 240 average and Rick Barva with a 299 and 234 average leading the way Capri's Junior girts trimmed their Gas City rivals by 570 pins, sparked by Brenda Pedersen with 272 and a' 231 average and Kalie Pedrini with 306 and a 220 average in the Senior division, Capri look the girls' challenge bv 379 pins as Linda Malcomson led the way witlf 328 and a 273 average while Capri boys won by 560 pins as Darwin Romanchuk clicked for 316 anil a 272 average and Baden Pilling posted a 259 average In a YBC mixed team tournament in Red Deer.

Bowling scores sional he has shown he Is sel- dom bad or even mediocre. TOP LINEMAN 3 TIMES Jiach year he has been named to an all-star team and three times, in 1965, 1966 and 1970, lie has been Canada's outstanding lineman. His name is up for the award again this year. Despite the frequency of past awards "1 still get the same thrill yon feel lucky you've been considering Calgary has "some outstanding ''If you make a mistake you know one of them will cover up, but they tend to make you hus- tle more. "Your job is to make tackles and you have to hustle or one of them will make it first." That's the kind of competition which makes a "good defensive team." HEED WAS STRONG In Hie first game of the WFC final, which the Stampeders took from Saskatchewan 30-21, Harris said Roughriders full- back George Reed ran strongly. But to stop their ground game, the defence also has to keep an eye on Silar McKinnie and Bobby Thompson; the latter can be devastating if he gets outside on a sweep. "They can do so many things. We've played them so many times we know what they're going to do. hut never how they'll do it." says Harris. "They execute their plays so well none is easy to stop they make it difficult to adjust. They run a lot of play action passes. "Lancaster is the key to the offence because he can read the defence so well that bo mixes up plays and disguises in such a way that he keeps the defence off balance." "Their offensive line is one of the toughest in the league giv- ing good pass protection, strong blocking on running plays and handling blitzes well. "We are basically not a 1 ing club but they can pick it up and Lancaster reads a blitz fast and can beat it." ANKLES BOTHER HIM In the last couple of years, says Harris, his job has been tougher and compounded a little by injuries to his 33-year-old an- kles. But what really bothered him was revised blocking tech- niques, aimed specifically at the middle linebacker. He usually gets double- teamed on running plays with the offensive centre and a tac- kle coming at him. One hits him straight on and the other comes in a blind-side angle to knock him out of the play. The play is effective, he says, and has forced adjustments. But with two men on him it leaves someone else with less to han- dle. WANTS TO SCORE Although Harris has contrib- uted much to Calgary's success in the last few years, there's one other thing he would like to do for the a touchdown. "I guess it's always a line- backer's dream. "The closest I came was in Edmonton a couple years ago when I ran a ball back to the one-yard line then was knocked out of bounds." New York trades for Gene Carr NEW YORK (AP) The New York Rangers traded four play- ers to the St. Blues Mon- day in exchange for veteran Wayne Connelly and two others n a National Hockey League ;wap. Moving to the Blues were left wing Jack Egers, defenseman Andre Dupont, right wing Mike Vlurphy and a player to be named later. Accompanying Connelly t o New York were rookie centre Gene Carr and left wing Jim Lorentz.

He has appeared in just 12 games with only one point so up six per cent over the price the same network paid for 1971. A joint announcement by CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur and president Murray Cher- over of CTV said the CTV net- ork service has been extended into such new areas as Tim- j mins, North Bay and Sudbury in Ontario and to Kamloops, B.C., and Saskatoon.

Dupont, a 22-year-old secom year pro, accumulated 308 pen ally minutes at Omaha las' year and Murphy How do you slop Rangers worry opponents MONTREAL (CP) How do you cope with a team that scores two goals for every one scored by the opposition? That's the question being asked by the other 13 teams in the National Hockey League today about New York Rangers. Combining the scoring punch of linemates Vic Hadfield, Rod Gilbert and Jean Ratelle with the goaltending of Gilles Ville- mure and Ed Giacomin, the Rangers, with three victories again last week, stretched their winning streak to six games and their undefeated string to 14. The last New York loss was Oct. 13 when Boston Bruins de- feated them a 6-1 at New York, last 20 years. However, Boston holds the records for both the longest undefeated and longest winning streaks, going 23 games without a loss in 194M1 and winning 14 consecutive contests in 1929-30. But despite all the heroics by the Hangers, Boslon's Phil Es- posito is once again the NHL's scoring leader. Esposito, who picked up nine points last, five in the Bruins' 11-2 romp over Los Angeles Kings a total of 30, one more than Hadfield and two more than Gil- bert. All three have 13 goals. M more Since then the Rangers have and Guy Lafleur of Montreal Canadians. Chicago Black Hawks, leaders in (lie NHL's West Division, have recaptured the lead in tin Vczina Trophy race from Min- nesota North Stars. Chicago goalies Gary Smith and Tony Ksposito now have a combined goals-against of 1.64. Cesarc Maniago and Gump Worslcy of the Stars have a combined mark of 1.75.
