The Sooners came from be- hind to defeat Nebraska Corn- huskers 17-14 while Texas Long- horns trampled traditional ri- vals Texas A and M 38-3. In last year's game, Ne- braska, the Big Eight champs and ranked No. 1 at the time, knocked off then-No. 2 Okla- homa 35-31 in Norman, Olda., and went on to the national championship.

The Canadians got all the runs they needed in the first in- ning when a fielder's choice with the bases loaded scored one run and catcher Bruce Gul- lett of Edmonton singled home another. The win was the fourth for Canada against four losses. Canada defeated winless Italy 3-1 Wednesday night as Garth Neville of Binscarth, Man., went the route and allowed seven hits for his second win.

The Raymond Comets will roiuid out the "A" boy's com- petition as they visit the Mo- hawks in Medicine Hat. All games are slated for eight o'clock. Meanwhile according to a few officials in the League, the Magrath Zeniths and LCI Rams are the two teams most likely to dethrone the CCHS Cougars this season. In pre season competition, the Zeniths sport a 3-0 record while the Rams are 2-2. Rick Ponomar, who earned the most valuable player award in the Magrath Invitational Basketball Tournament 1 ast weekend, will lead the Zenith's attack this year along with an other veteran, John Baldcrson. The Zeniths finished with a 5-5 record In the 1971-72 season and have higher expectations in the coming season. At LCI, the green and gold Rams will have a new coach for the 1972-73 year. Jim Whitelaw will replace Hugh Tamblyn as head coach while Tamblyn will step down to handle the Colts. Whitelaw will have four vet- erans to work with, led by Kelly Strong.

Coach Dean Dahl, who led his chargers to a 10-0 record lasl year and the Alberta "A" Boys' basketball Championship title, could be in trouble.
