Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 19, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 0 Hamilton lineman got Burton to Toronto Mosca fiill pay for that telephone eall TORONTO (CP) Angelo Mosca miiy regret the phone call he made last December that steered quarterback Greg Barton to Toronlo Argonauts. Mosea's Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Argos meet: here Saturday in the second game of the East- ern Football Conference's two- game loUd-point final. Toronto look the opener 23-8 at Hamilton last Sunday. Union, though he has been used infrequently during the lat- ter part of the season while a broken finger on his throwing hand was mending, has devised most of the offensive patterns as tJie Argos nimed for their first Grey Cup appearance in IS years. Saturday's game Is set to go at noon KlST and will be tele- vised nationally by the CTV net- work with no blackout in the Toronto-Hamilton area. Mosca, Hamilton's 275-pound defensive tackle who doubles as a professional wrestler in the off-season, was in Detroit to visit Chuck Walton, a one-time Ticat guard, when he met Bar- ton.

Plagued by injuries since the season opened. Cosentiro has had to shuffle his lineup from week to week, but the moves paid off handsomely, lending support to his reliance nn depth. "It's a nice feeling to have this kind of Cosentino said. "We've had enough inju- ries to wreck an average team." Head coach Jim Donlevy of the Bears is inclined to agree. He says the Mustangs will be the toughest, squad his team has met. all year.

"The key to the game is whether our offence can solve their defence." Donlevy may have an inside track in the scouting depart- ment because Gary Smith, Bears' defensive co-ordinator, coached last year at Western. But both teams have ex- changed season's game films and scouts from Western at- tended the Western College Bowl in Edmonton Sunday, when the Bears mauled Bish- op's University of Liennoxville, Quc., 53-2.

Close doesn't count By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Phoenix Suns were just a point away several times but in their case, a point was as good as a mile. Five times the Suns pulled that close to Detroit only to be knocked back and the Pistons pulled away at the final gun for a 128-126 National Basketball Association triumph Thursday night. A basket by Curtis Rowe and a free throw by Howard Ko- mives in the final 40 seconds proved the winning margin. In the NBA's only other game, Golden State Warriors downed Portland Trail Blazers 115-105. Bob Lanier, who led Detroit with 37 pomts, and Jimmy Walker, who had 29, helped build a 103-94 lead at the end of the third period, But the Piston advantage slipped away in the last quarter before an assault by Dick Van Arsdale, Paul Silas and Connie Hawkins. Neal Walk led Phoe- nix with 30 points. Portland cut a 21-point deficit to nine in the last quarter be- fore Jeff Mullins and Cazzie Russell put the Warriors out of danger. Russell paced the Warriors with 29 points er.d crossed the mark in his NBA career. Expos reach agreement MONTREAL (CP) Mont- real Expos announced Thursday the club has "reached an agree- ment in principle" with the class A Carolina League to relo- cate Montreal's class AAA In- ternational League franchise in Winnipeg to the Newport News- Hampton area of Virginia for the 1972 season. The Expo s' International ague affiliation last season was Winnipeg League) and ue goi. to talking about C a n a d i a n Mosca recalled ihis week. "He wondered where he could make the most money ami I told him Toronto or Vancouver. "I called the Argos the next day and told I Frank) Blaekie Johnston (Toronto assistant coach) about him I guess they put him on tlieir ne- gotiation list right away." Barton had seen liltle action in three jears with Detroit but when the season was ended he was ticketed for stardom with the hapless Philadelphia Ea- gles. Tliere were hou-ls of protest when the 6-foot-2, 195-pound quarterback signed with the Ca- nadian Football League Argos. But because it was Mosea's in- tervention lhat led to Barton's talks with Toronto, the EFC club couldn't caught tamper- ing with the player. BECAME FltEE AGENT CFL commissioner Jake Gau- daur confirmed later that Bar- ton's player contract did not reach his offices until after Bar- ton became a free agent last May 1. "It's tough io prove tamper- said Gaudaur at the time. "It was the same situation with Vic Washington (former Ottawa Rough Rider and British Colum- bia Lion) last year. Pete Kozclle I NFL commissioner) and I tried to prevent induce- ments to players to play out their options." Barton signed as a player- coach with Argos for five years at a reported a 5'ear and it was the offensive strategy de- vised by him that made Argos the class in the East in 1971 and helped them in establishing a 15-point cushion for Saturday's second game of the final. However, lie's not likely to forget, Mosca. The towering Hamilton de- fender broke Barton's nose when the two teams met in To- ronto in September. BARTON ON" SIDELINES Mosca isn't likely lo cot sn- other chance to put any slops the Toronto quarterback in Sat- urday's game. Barton has watched most of the recent games from the sidelines while giving moral support to Joe Theismann, the rookie from Notre Dame. Theismann directed the Argo offence in tlieir late season drive when Toronto captured first place in Die East for the first time in 11 years. Barton says he's ready lo re- turn and hopes he can call a few plays in Saturday's game. What really scares me is not being used Saturday, then if Joe gets hurt in the Grey Cup game I'll have to go in cold I have a fear I'll let the team down.'1 But coach Leo Cahill isn't likely to test Barton's injured hand against the Ticats unless Theismann comes up flat or is I injured.

Sanderson lost the argument and cooled his heels for 10 minutes in the penalty box.
