IETHBRIDGE i.OO I Per Month 0-A-C. Down STREIT t 3'rf AVENUE, UTfifBlOC.r, ALFFBTA Tte 10-year veteran, named WFC rookie-of-Hie-year in 1961, said centre Basil Bark "could hardly hold onto the ball." "His hands were too cold and that resulted in the poor snap." Robinson said- he didn't feel any pressure before the lack "because I was trying to gauge the wind and was too busy tying up my shoe." "I kicked it deliberately off to the side. I was trying to play the wind and, man, when I saw that wind take that ball and book it back inside the goal posts, I just couldn't believe it and I still can't.'' If the wind had stopped blow- ing as he kicked the ball "it would have been off to the side and I would be in a different position than I am tod'ay." HOLDS RECORDS Robinson, holder of Uie CFL records for field goals (115) and converts (274) was presented with the game ball Monday by his team-mates. He f inished fourth in the WFC scoring race this season with 74 points but was good on only 12 of 32 field goal attempts. "I never worry about missing a field goal or convert. You can't let it bother you or you're bound to miss a few more as you go along." Coach Jim Duncan said of Robinson's kick: "The wind caught it perfectly and it turned six feet inside the post. Duncan, who'll put the Slam- peders through a brief practice session today before leaving for Toronto Wednesday morning, said his dream of getting a tough-knocking team together finally has been fulfilled. "I always wanted a hunch of alley cats who would fight, and scratch and carr the other guy. We're .iliey cats and we're going In light our way tn a Gray Cup win. "I'm no! minimizing Montreal because they have a learn, too. It should be a dopzer oi a game." By LLOYI) YAMAG1SIU Herald Sports Writer The University of Manitoba Bisons are every bit as good ,ns their press releases would have you believe. University of Lethbridge Chi- nooks, who dropped a narrow 78-77 decision to Winnipeg Wes- mens in their first game in the Western Canada Intercollegi- ate Athletic Association Bas- ketball League Friday eve- ning, were outlasted in Uie last hall Monday evening as they diopped a decisive 93-01 en- counter to the Bisons before some 500 faithful at the Civic Centre. Bisons, who last year in the conference were beaten by the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds in llm final, had their hands full with a spirited Chinook squad in the first half. After holding comfortable leads twice in Uie early going the Bisons held a narrow five- point, 40-35, halftime lead. Chi- nooks, however, appeared to run out of sleam under the con- stant pressure of the visitors as the third and fourth quarters took their toll. Chinooks battled back twice in the first half. They trailed 26-13 and 3246 at different stages but never gave up. The locals trailed by 10 points after thiee quarters but the Bisons utrat on a 16-point scoring .spree before Uie Chinooks could reply and the damage had all been done. Tim Tollestaip, who cante up with 34 points against the Wes- nren, led the way Monday eve- ning with 26 points. Randy Milner combined a strong de- fensive effort with 11 points. Bob Town matched Tol- lestrup's performance for the Bisons while teammate Angus Euir hooped 20. The defence that hurt Uie Chinooks in Friday's opener seemed to be sharper Monday but it wasn't enough to stop Ihe hot-hands of the Bisons as they hit on 51 per cent of their chances from the field. Chi- nooks were good on 33 per cent. Chinooks see action this Sat- urday evening at the Civic Cen- tre at eight o'clock when they play host to the University of Calgary Dinosaurs. The two clubs have met in pre-season action once witH the Chmooks coming out on top of a 75-62 verdict. Meanwhile, in other confer- ence action Monday, the Uni- versity of Victoria Vikings turned on the steam in the final five minutes to win 72-62 over Brandon University Bob- cats. The two clubs were deadlock- ed at 36-36 at haUtime and only one point separated them, with five minutes left. In Regina, the Thunderbirds put it all together and trounced the University of Saskatche- wan, Kegina Campus, 77-42 while in Calgary the Wesmens upended the Dinosaurs 77-70. HOOP SHOTS Randy Mil- ner put his quick hands to use Monday and stole the ball on at least four occasions Coach Logan Tail saw to it that all Ms Chinooks saw ac- tion in ihe game Bison's big centre Bob Town has a pretty sharp set of elbows which he used constantly dur- ing the game Chinooks ap- pear to be sharper each time out It's the same with any two-year club, it takes time.

York Giants, compared his job with that of a sprinter in track Walik, a 180-pound rookie, re tens kicks for the Eagles. He carried four for 14S yards Mon- day night. He raced 57 yards with a second-period New York kickoff to set up a subsequent field goal, and 45 yards with a third-quarter return that started the Eagles toward their winning fourth-period touchdown. Walik said: "In track you wait around a lot until it's time to run and then you let fly for 50 or 60 yards and hope you timed it right. In returning kickoffs, you look for the hole and try to hit it before it closes." ffalik's flying feet signalled the end of New York's six-game I winning streak and it helped drop the Giants into a second- place tie with Dallas Cowboys in the NFL's National Confer- ence Eastern Division, 1% games behind the leading St; Louis Cardinals. New York coach Ate Webs- ter said: "What hurt us most was Walik's kickoff returns which gave them great field position." SCORE ON KEEPER The Eagles tallied their win- ning touchdown on a one-yard keeper play by quarterback Norm Snead 52 seconds into the final period. Coach Jerry Williams, with Calgary Stampeders of the Western Football Conference before jumping to the Eagles last year, said Walik's returns and the ability of the Eagles' defence to contain Giants half- back Ron Johnson were the key factors for his team. New York scored to the first period for a 3-0 lead on Pete Go- golak's 29-yard field goal The Eagles recovered a fourth-down bad pass from centre at the New York one and scored on Snead's keeper run in the second quarter to lead 6-3. New York look advantage of a fnmble recovery to go back in front on a two-yard burst by Johnson and a 29-yard Gogolak fkV.d goal made it 13-6 with 42 seconds left in the half. Walik then returned the Hck- off 5? yards leading to Mark Moseley's 29-yard field goal on the last play of the half. The Eaghs drove to a third- period score, Snead passing yard to tight end Fred Hill for a 1S-13 advantage, only to have the Giants score on Fran Tar- kenten's one-yard keeper, re- gaining the lead at 20-16. Then came Walik's 45-yarc caper and the Eagles Una major score by Snead on a push from the half-yard line.
