Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Celtics caught napping By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Forgive the fans at Boston Garden if they relaxed at half- time of the Celtics' National Basketball Association game against Milwaukee Bucks Fri- day night. Here were the Celtics, win- ners of 14 of their first 15 starts, leading the Bucks by 15 points. It was obviously, a time to relax. The only problem was that Milwaukee didn't take it easy. The Bucks, led by Kareem Abdul Jabbar, rallied in the second half and knocked off Boston 93-88, only the' second loss all season for the Celtics. Jabbar poured in 21 of his 32 points in the second half. Elsewhere in the NBA Friday night, Detroit Pistons whipped Chicago Bulls 109-96, Kansas C i t y-Omaha Kings downed Cleveland Cavaliers 115-96, Bal- timore Bullets took Phoenix Suns 117-96, Seattle SuperSonics beat Philadelphia '76ers 105-92, Portland Trailblazers trimmed Golden State Warriors 105-97 and Los Angeles Lakers nipped Buffalo Braves 103-100. In the American Basketball Association, New York trimmed San Diego 109-99, Virginia downed Kentucky 122-115, Caro- lina defeated Indiana 127-120 and Memphis took Utah 123-117 in overtime. Detroit ran off a 16-2 spurt in the final five minutes of the first half and went on to whip Chicago, lagging the Bulls with only their second loss of the year. Dave Bing led the Pistons with 25 points. Baltimore roared from behind with Phil Chenier and Elvin Hayes leading the way as the Bullets ripped Phoenix. Chenier threw in JO points and Hayes had 17 after intermission. Nate Archibald threw In 40 points and picked up 11 assists as Kansas City-Omaha defeated Cleveland. Saturday, Nownyr II, 1972 THi UTHMIDO! HRAID 13 Magmth iinah set for tonight Four teams reeled to tourney sidelines IT MAY NOT BE FUNNY tATER Two Ottawa Rough Riders, Borry Ardern (18) and Ron Wcodward add a touch of clowning to a Friday practice in Ottawa. The Rough Riders met Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the first game of the Eastern Conference final this afternoon in a game that may remove the smiles from the faces of Ardern and Woodward. {CP Wirephoto) Robinson wants to play another three seasons CALGARY (CP) This is the time of year when some Canadian Football League players think about retire- ment, something place-kicker Larry Robinson hopes to avoid for another three years. Robinson, also a regular de- fensive back, has been with Calgay Stampeders 12 sea- sons, missing only one of 320 league, playoff and exhibition games. One of his main goals is career points from regu- lar-season competition, al- though Tommy-Joe Coffey of Hamilton Tiger-Cats may reach the total first. At the conclusion of the 1972 season, Coffey had 971 points after 13 years compared with Robin- son's 927. Robinson's total includes nine touchdowns, 336 converts and 145 field CFL 92 singles. A last-second, 32-yard field goal into winds gusting to 36 miles an hour at Regina's Taylor Field heads his list of achievements. It sailed through the up- rights in the deciding game of the 1970 Western Football Conference best-of-three final playoff series, gave the Stam- peders a 15-14 win over Sas- katchewan Roughriders and a berth in the Grey Cup. Eagle Keys, then coach of Saskatchewan and now field boss of British Columbia Lions, said it was "once in a lifetime kick." Robinson says: "I never thought I would make it against that wind. Be- fore the game I was warming up and couldn't get more than 25 yards." However, t h e 30-year-old Calgary native also remem- bers his first field goal at- tempt in 19G1 when he joined Calgary with quarterback cre- dentials. "It was about a 43-yard try and I had never kicked in a professional game before. The ball hit our lineman in the rear and a piece of turf went over him. "I felt like jumping in the hole I made." Four teams moved into the championship round of the fourth annual Magrath High School Invitational Basketball Tournament after fiTst-round action ceased Friday night. A "third- or fourth-string" quarterback when he first joined Calgary, he was used as a flanker for two seasons before moving to defensive b.ick in 1963. He has never been named as a CFL ail-star but took the WFC award last year. He won the CFL scoring title in 19G4 and 1965 aaid was chosen WFC rookie-of-the-year in 1961. Although missed the playoffs this year for the second time since 1959, most observers agreed that it was a great year for Robinson. He finished second this sea- son in the WFC scoring race with 100 points, including a touchdown on an interception. The 200-pounder joined the Stampeders afte" one year of junior ball with Mount Royal College Cougars of Calgary. As a quarterback, punter and place-kicker: that year, he guided Mount Royal to the western junior final before they lost to Saskatoon Hill- tops. How about putting a few taxdoHan back inhere? Bomber offence is good WINNIPEG (CP) Dave Skrien, head coach of Sas- katchewan Roughriders, hinted Friday that the biggest chore his club faces in Sunday's West- ern Football Conference sudden- death final could be keeping up to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers offence. "You just know they'll the brush-cut coach pre- dicted. "They have too good an offence to stop cold." But Skrien is confident his club will be on the Scoreboard as well. He said his team, which has been to the Grey Cup three times in the last six years, will come up with an of- fensive effort to match that of Winnipeg. Skrien has a healthy George Reed, the bruising fullback who ran for yards this season, to add to his offensive punch. Reed is "close to 100 per cent. He's healthier than he has been for eight said Skrien, LACKED LINEMEN Reed was not able to run in- side last Sunday in the semi-fi- nal playoff game against Ed- monton Eskimos because Jack Abendschan and Larry Bird were hurt. However, both offen- sive linemen will be healthy for Sunday's sudden-death final and are expected to find some run- ning room for Reed. Skrien is not concerned that Mack HeiTon, the fleet halfback who led the Canadian Football League in rushing this season, will hurt his club. "We won't key on him. You can't key on any one player, es- pecially against Winnipeg with that passing attack. You key on formations and patterns." Skrien said: "We managed to stop Herron in two games. In the third he broke for one long gain, but he hasn't hurt us as much as some other teams." Most of the football fraternity assembled here for the game feel Winnipeg's offence has to come up big if the Blue Bomb- ers are to win. THEY'LL SCORE Tom Campana, the Rough- riders talented running back who was named the Western Conference rookie-of-the-year, said the Winnipeg offence, with quarterback Don Jonas, re- ceiver Jim Thorpe and Herron, is too powerful to keep off the Scoreboard. "It certainly will require more Uian eight points to win Sunday." he said, referring to the club's 8-6 win over Edmon- ton the week before. Winnipeg's "layoff will help Skrein said. "They'll be recovered from any bruises or minor injuries. They'll have the steam. I found if you have a layoff your legs get rested and when you come back you're full of steam." i Commenting about, flic i weather, tic said, il "won't i bother us as much as it will I bother them.'' Winnipeg, which won two of Hip three regular-season gamps between the clubs, is unbeaten at home in its last 13 games. The game will be telecast na- tionally on CBC beginning in p.m. MST. Eight top southern Alberta high school teams were vying for the championship title in the two-day affair, but only four teams have a chance to walk away with the crown to- night. Taber W. R. Myers sparked by Robin Hanesen's 21 point performance moved into the title round by defeating the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams 58-42 in the tourney open- er. Kelly Strong managed 13 points in a losing cause. The Lethbridge Catholic Cen- tral Cougars, who are the tour- ney favorites, also moved into the final round of play by dropping the Milk River Ridge Riders 53-36 in the second game of the evening. Peter Sikora paced the Cou- gars with 19 points while Bill Dudas added 10. Bill Lodermier hooped 12 points fa- the losers. In the third game staged, the host Zeniths whipped the Stir- linn Lakers 57-42. Brad Wilde notched 16 points while Tim Rollingson chipped in with 13. Brent Drewry was the ton scorer for the Lakers with 12 points. Cardston Cougars also slipped into the championship round as they edged the Raymond Com- ets 55-53. Jim Toone netted 18 points and Zealand Leavitt 10 for the Cougars while Walter Zobell sunk 22 points in a losing cause.

The Seals, in last place in the NHL's West Division, got two- goal performances Friday night from Joey Johnston and Reggie Leach to defeat Buffalo Sabres 5-1. but it was only their third victory this season in 18 games. One of the most promising clubs in the NHL last year..the Seals had hopes of being R top contender this season in their division but the rival lured away about seven of their promising players. It was a crushing blow to the young Seals and they showed it by their early-season perform- ances. In one other game Friday night, Bobby Sehmautz scored three goals to lead Vancouver Canucks to an 8-4 victory over Los Angeles Kings. The Seals, whose players av- eraged about 23 years last sea- son, were turning into an ex- citing hockey team but, the enticed top scorers like Bobby Sheehan. Tom Webster and Gerry Finder to join its ranks. .The Seals also lost prom- ising players like dcfenceman Shmyr, goalie Grvy Kurt and forwards Wayne Oarloton and Ken Raird. Canadian team loses second game MANAGUA, Nicaragua (CP- AP) The United States beat Canada 1-0 here Friday. in a game in the 20th world amateur baseball championship. Bob Miller of the U.S. team pitched a no-hitter until the ninth inning, when he was re- lieved by Ruben Garcia. The Canadians had two men on base and no one out when Garcia came to the mound. Limited to a single by the slow curve balls of Canadian pitcher John Oslxme of To- ronto, the U.S. scored the win- ning run in the last of the ninth on a single by Don Ellison and a long double by Kerry Dinnen. Miller and Osborne battled on equal terms for eight innings. But in the top of the ninth, the Canadians' Hugh Mclvor walked and Dennis Linstrand was safe when the U.S. third baseman, Gene Delyon, missed his bunt. With the count 2-2 on Bruce Gullet, Garcia took over and struck out Gullet when he fouled on a bunt attempt. Rick Crise grounded to short and Linstrand was forced at second with Mclvor taking third. Gar- cia ended the Canadian threat when Wayne Martin flied to right. I Then earlier tills month, i ov.Tier Charles 0. Finley an- nounccd that coach Garry j Young was resigning for health I reasons. Young had undergone j lung surgery before the season started. Fred Glover, a former coach, replaced Young, and it now is his job to whip the Seals into a contender. If they can get the scoring puncli and spectacular goaltend- inp exhibited against the Sabres Friday night, they still might reach the playoffs. Marv Edwards In goal was brilliant in the first period when the Sabres outshot the Seals 15-8. And he got sup- port from Johnston and Leach. Gerry Median spoiled Ed- shutout bid in the third period when he scored at the mark on a 30-foot slap I shot. While the Seals played before fans in Oakland, a sell-out crowd of at Vancouver watched the Canucks score three goals in each of the first two periods to rout the Kings. Schmautz's goals for Van- coiiver were Ms seventh, eighth and ninth of the year while centre Andre Boudrias got two goals. The Kings got goals from Mike Corrigan, Don Kozak, Butch Goring and Dick Ve- nasky. FSPORTS FANS! I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW by GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD. One of the most unusual seasons any football team ever had was the one 1he Chicogo Bears experienced in 1932 The Bears opened that season by playing three straight scoreless ties Then they lost the'rr next game 2-0 Thus, after four games they hadn't even scored a they wound up the season in first place and won the champion- ship! They finished with the odd record of 7 wins, 1 loss and 6 ties, and that turn- ed out to be the best record in the National Football League that yearl Here's a football oddity Arkansas and Tulsa play- ed In 1971 and the final score was Tulso 21, Arkansas 20 This year they met again, and the final score wet Arkansas 21, Tulsa 20.
