Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THt LETHBRIDGI HERAID Tuesday, Novembor 51, 197Z Alouettes' owner denies coach to be fired Rumors continue to persist Etcheverry is through MONTREAL (CP) The plot surrounding the future of coach Sam Etcheverry and general manager J .1. Albreclit of Mon- treal Alouettes thickened Mon- day afternoon. The latest broken play devel- oped between owner Sam Ber- ger of Lhe Canadian Football League clul) and columnist Jolin Robertson of The Star. The newspaper printed a front-page story under Rob- ertson's byline in its second edi- tion to the effect that Bcrger had fired Elcheverry and Al- brcchL at a morning meeting held in the owner's uptown of- fice. But the switch came when Berger told The Canadian Press that the' story was untrue and repeated this statement to other reporters. "It just isn't Berger said of the story. "I don't know where these stories come from." "We were just evaluating Lhe Berger said. "I haven't come to any conclusion of any kind." When the denials, Including one from Elcheverry, startej to appear, Robertson related in a later story how he called the Alouettes' owner again on the subject. "I thought we wore just talk- ing. I didn't think you were go- Kodiaks to host weekend tourney Lethbridge Community Col- lege Kodiaks came within a whisker of winning the Calgary Mount Royal basket-classic at Calgary over the weekend. They lost a tough 99-97 verdict to Blue Mountain College of Pen- dleton, Ore. in the final. But. as coach Ton Kaircn put it. the show must go on and now the Kcdiaks have their sights set on the President's In- vitational Classic at the Com- munity College this Friday and Saturday.

The consolation final begins at followed by the tournament final at Blue Mountain won the initial tourney but will not be back to defend its title. Three ot the key players to the Kodiaks' hopes of success this weekend and for the com- ing season arc Alec Dudas, Curt Wolsey and Kendon Eaketl. Dudas, the form chart says, is an even six feet and it all must be talent. One of the Ko- diaks' top stars last year das is expected to carry a great' deal of the scoring weight on his shoulders this season. Du- das is as good a ball handler as there is in the college lea- gue this year. Eakett also looks down from KENDON EAKETT ALEC DUDAS CURT WOLSEY a six foot stance. He is in his second year with the Kodiaks and hopes are high that he can stay healthy and contribue even more than he was able to in his rookie seasn. Eakett had ankle troubles most of last year and when his legs were right he was hit with a stomach disorder that kept him on the sidelines. If Eakett is healthy the Kodiaks will have a solid defence an- chored by the Cardston native. Wolsey goes both ways equal- ly well and is also a excellent ball handler and a strong shoot- er. He hails from Edmonton and is in his second season. Tickets for the weekend games can reserved by calling the Community College at 320-1805. Over-The-Hill gang hoi Old scouts win again WASHING'TON (API "Three cheers for the Red- sang the husky-voiced Washington football team. "Three cheers for the Red- skins rah, rah rah." These are grown men, mind you. "Hooay for Pat, hooray for Pat continued the off- key locker room chorus. ray for Alvin, hooray for Alvin Haymond. Rah, Rah Rah." The Redskins are the world's oldest, largest, highest-paid boy scouts. George Allen is as much their scoutmaster as the coach of the National Football League powerhouse. After a victory Allen passes out game footballs like merit badges. Monday night was Fis- cher's turn for gutty defence that got him a black eye and Raymond's turn for nifty kick returning. "We sing because we're said Allen, "It was a big win for us. The pressure's now on Dallas Cowboys for Thursday's game. We'll just sit back and watch what happens."

Atlanta, 5-5, lost a 24-hour grip on first place in the NFC West as Los Angeles and the '49ers, both 5-4-1, popped ahead when the Falcons collapsed in the chilling wind at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium Billy Kilmer hit 7-for-7 in the third quarter, topping an 89- yard march with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Larry Brown and later hitting tight end Jerry Smith on a 12-yard score. A 10-7 Falcon halftime lead vanished amid the Kilmer bar- rage that put Washington into 21-10 command. Bill Bel! kicked a fourth-period field goal for At- lanta, but Curt Knight matched it wilh a 37-yarder that drew a standing ovation from the parti- san Washington crowd. FALCON'S START FAST Atlanta started fast, inter- cepting a Kilmer pass in the first quarter. Atlanta quarter- back Bob Berry then rifled a 36- yard touchdown pass to tight end Jim Mitchell for a 7-0 Fal- con lead. Ted Vactor fumbled a Falcon punt at the Redskin 30 to set up a 33-yard field goal by Bell that made it 10 0. Falcon runner Art Malone cooled his team's hot streak with a fumble that was recov- ered by Chris Hanburgcr late in the second quarter. Kilmer then worked the club to the Atlanta one, setting up a one-yard scoring charge by the incredible Brown. It was then 10-7, setting the sUgc tor Kil- third period heroics that ersed Atlanta hopes for an up- set. Brown muscled [or five yards on his first carry of the game, hilling for the season with four games to go. The crowd gave a thunderous ovation and the referee handed Larry the bali for a souvenir. Despite two huge lasses on wide plays, Brown finished with 82 yards and a Tour-season ca- reer aggregate of yards. Only Cleveland's Jim Brown did in his first four pro sea- sons. "I wcnl into (lie huddle when 1 hit yards and shook my tea m-mntes1 hands." ing to write anything Robertson quoled Berger as saying during his second call. Robertson, writing In the pa- per's final edition, outlined how he had called Bcrger early Monday to discuss last week's CFL meeting and a proposed expansion to the United States. After this subject was ex- hausted, Robertson said he asked Berger: "What are you going to do about your coaching "John, I've decided that Mr. Etcheverry has to go. We just have to make a change. The club has no discipline. We have to find a real tough guy like that Spavital in Winnipeg someone who can command and get respect from the the report quoted Berger as saying. SUGGESTED CAIIILL Robertson reported the con- versation then switched to a re- placement for Elcheverry and Berger told him that John Bas- sett, owner of Toronto Argo- nauts, had recommended his recently-fired head coach, Leo Cahill. Robertson wrote that he then asked Berger about the general manager's job. "Well, I think J. I.'s got to go the report quoted Berger as admitting. "He's just not a general manager. He brought in far too many players and not enough good ones. "He just doesn't seem to be the man for the job The columnist said he then asked Berger when he would see the two men and the owner replied that Btcheverry and Al- brecht were waiting in his outer office to see him. The contracts of both men run through to 1973. REPEATED DENIAL When reporters, alerted to the meeting, appeared with ques- tions as the three men emerged, Berger again issued a denial of the firings. "Well, that's not he said. "If that's what they printed, they must have imag- ined it." When Etcheverry was asked if the reports were true, he re- plied: "Hell, no there's the nan to he said, pointing to Berger. Berger admitted he discussed .he future with his principal employees, but declined to re- veal the content of the dis- cussion. "I have nothing else to Jerger said. SPORT Minor hockey Colls refuse Matte's plea BALTIMORE (AP) Balti- more Colts refused Monday to rrsnt veteran running back Tom Matte's pica to be taken off the team's taxi squad and be placed on waivers so he could play with another Na- .tonal Football League team. "Matte is our only insur- said coach John Sand- usky. "I told Tom we needed lim for protection." While noting that the 12-year veteran could play quarterback as well as running back, Sand- usky admitted that Matte was rked by the recent activation of veteran runner Tom Nowatzke. But the coach said Nowatzke vas activated because he could ill in at linebacker in the Colts' njury-plagued defence. In a public statement, Matte tad said: "My services apparently aic no longer of any value to he team, as evidenced by the act that I have not been acti- ralcd despite being fully recov- ered from a leg muscle pull and Jare-up of my stomach ulcer.
