Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Salurdqy, November 35, 1972 THE LETHHIDGE HERALD Rams put it all together against Zeniths 1234 HOME A BASKETBALL can't happen, can it? It's possible but very unlikely that a team could register a shutout in basketball. This was the Scoreboard Friday evening at the Community College at the final buzzer in the game between tethbridge Kodiaks and Medicine Hat Antelopes. Kodiaks won 100-49 but there wasn't room for the one and this is how it may have looked to some unsuspecting fan. See story page 10. Ealey unanimous choice on eastern all-stars MONTREAL back Chuck Ealey was named on all 30 ballots as Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats placed 10 men on the 1B72 Eastern Football Confer- ence team announced Friday. Ealey was the only unani- mous choice this year although twn offensive teammates, who helped the T i c a t s nail down first place in the standings, near unanimous. Running back Dave Bu- chanan, the East's leading ground gainer with yards, was just one vote shy and flan- SPORT I No tomorrow for the loser HAMILTON (CP) Hamilton Tiger-Cab are favored to win Sunday's second half of the Eastern Football Conference playoffs over Ottawa Rough Riders, but the oddsmakers fancy them by only nine points. Should that be right, Ham- ilton will win the battle, but Ot- tawa would win the war. The Rough Riders won the first half in Ottawa last week by 12 points, 19-7, so unless Hamilton can beat the book, they won't be playing in the Grey Cup against Saskatchewan Rough- riders at Ivor Wynne Stadium on Dec. 3. On the basis of regular-season play, the odds look good be- cause Hamilton lost only one home game, to Montreal. Addi- tionally, in three meetings with the Riders, the Ticats won all three. However, Hamilton was fa- vored in last week's game and were lucky to come out with just a 12-point deficit. "It would be tough enough if it was all said rookie quarterback Chuck Ealey. "But this just makes it tougher. We know it won't be any bed of roses, but we'll go out there and do the job." Ealey, a unanimous choice for the EFC all-star team, was controlled by Ottawa's defence last week, for the first time this year. And the Ticats know they have to protect him for the of- fence to be effective. They're confident they can do FO, but at least one Ottawa fan, Buss Jackson, a former all-star quarterback with the Riders says Hamilton isn't good enough. "I feel they'll have to score four touchdowns and I don't think they can against the Ot- tawa defence. Riders have never given away that many points all season." Another non-participant, Leo Cahill, recently-fired coach of Toronto Argonauts, says Ham- ilton can win because of the city's fans. "Hamilton can certainly come back on their own field. There is something about the city Hamilton and the way the fans rally behind the team that makes it special. You rarely find it in sport." The Ticats have praised Ot- tawa's defence all week and ad- mitted the Riders were the best team in the 19-7 win. However, a little acrimony has crept in during the last few days. Tiger-Cat coach Jerry Wil- ker Garney Henley was just two votes away from sweeping the ballots at their positions. In all, seven Ticats named to the offensive team and three to defence in votinf by the Football Reporters o Canada and announced here by FRC president Pierre Proulx. Toronto Argonauts, while fail ing to make the playoffs, gained six places and Ottawa Rough Riders and Montreal Alouettes five each on the 26-man team. The two additional names to (lie 24-man on offence and 12 on by ties at defensive end anbviously the outstanding per- ormers on either team as they dominated much of the play. Royer led the Cougar's at- ack with 18 points while Sikora hooped 16. Guy Pomahac also chipped in with 10 points. Zealand Leavitt paced Card- ston with seven points while Jim Toone and Don Remington added six points apiece. The Cougars were never in trouble during the four quar- ters of play as they held leads of 15-8, 29-12 and 43-21. Meanwhile at LCI, the Rams built up a 13-6 lead after the first eight minutes of play and extended it to 28-18 to drop the Zeniths in their season opener last night. The Zeniths, who captured their own invitational tourna- ment with three straight vic- tories last weekend, just couldn't muster up a powerful enough offensive or defensive attack to beat the host Rams. The Rams were by far the more aggressive ball club on the court and used their muscle and sharp passing plays to de- feat the Zeniths. Joey Shackleford supplied most of the strength for the Rams as he grabbed a number turn overs while netting 13 points. Kelly Strong was also instru- mental in the victory, swishing 12 points while Curtis Klovan- sky added 10 points. John Balderson paced the Zeniths with 1C points while Hick Ponomar replied with 15. The Raymond Comets also picked up a win in their league jpener as they defeated the Mohawks 67-50 in Medicine Hat last night. The Comets, who led 36-27 at half-time, received a 19-point performance from Walter Zo- bell and a 13-point outing from Tom Myndip. John Christensen managed 16 points in a losing cause. In "B" Boy's basketball league action last night, the Cardston Wildcats -dropped the CCHS Flyers 39-24. Rod Beazer notched 14 points and Larry Leavitt 13 for the winners while Steve Devcic hooped 10 for the losers. In Medicine Hat, the Ray- mond Mustangs bested the Red Skins 47-28. Doug Fairbanks rimmed 17 points for the Mustangs. Coaldale thumped by Bears KREMLIN, Mont. (Special) The Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels were reeled to the conso- lation final in the Kremlin-Gil- ford invitational Basketball Tournament as they suffered a 71-36 loss to Frazer Bears Fri- day night. The Bears were outstanding marksmen as they swished 32 field goals and added seven foul shot to thump the Gaels. Roger White paced the Bears with 24 points while Ed Dick led the Gaels with 12. Richard Boras also netted nine points in a losing cause. Coaldale will now meet Box Elder, Mont, in the consolation final tonight. Box Elder dropped a 71-61 decision to the host K-G Coug- ars, who will face the Bears in the championship final. The K-G Cougars Hill parti- cipate in the Lelhhridgo Colle- giate Institute Invitational Bas- ketball Tournament next week- end. SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan BIT OF EVERYTHING Before I give Kinsmen Club Sportsman's Dinner chairman D w i g h t Jensen any gray hairs, and he could use some of any color, the 1973 dinner is Saturday, Feb. 3. .Buzz Dun- ning is a coach with a sense of humor His Guilford College team had just lost for the 23rd time in suc- cession When asked how the winners played he simply said "I would say they were overly aggres- sive at times, like between two and p.m." I like a guy who is honest Mike Luftrell, TCU half- back, set a passing record of seven completions in as many attempts. According to Luttrell his passes are so slow the defender overshoots the ball Stock car driver Wayne Shugart was run off the track by fellow driver Frank Brantley recently and was most upset Shugart went to track steward Bob Smelzer and asked. it a fine for fighting in the When told yes, he simply reached into his pocket and took out and then ran into the pits and floored Brantley with a solid right on the chin. Have you ever heard of a coach being suspended because fans wouldn't let a penalized player to his dressing room? Well, it happened in the Southern Alberta Juvenile League when Harrold Osmond of the Lefhbridge Midget Elks and the coach of. Vaux- hall, were handed two-game suspensions after a re- cent game in Vauxhall that was called with time left in the game because of unruly conduct by some fans League president Jim Hildenbrand handed the suspensions in a move that left both parties shocked, including your correspondent. .Hildenbrand is biting the hand that feeds if he thinks suspending coaches, who offer their time without reimbursement, is the source trouble. .The referee's report from the game exonerated both coaches yet Hildenbrand de- cides the coaches should pay. .Not only that he has ordered them to stay away from the rink when the club is playing. .Officials of both clubs indicate the last has not been heard on this item. The foundation of the World Hockey Association is showing more man just little cracks of late. Managements of both New York Raiders and Phila-. delphia Blazers are in the process of disappearing Herb Elk, general manager, left the Raiders this past weekend and the club is now in the hands of the league In Philadelphia, meanwhile, an irrecon- cilable split between James Cooper, president of the club and Bernard Brown, the team's major stock holder, has taken place. .Cooper has quit as team president and will sell his minority of the stock to Brown. .Interest has quickly dropped in the new league. .Thursday evening only 1.750 fans were on hand in Ottawa as the Nationals played the Chicago Cougars. .The WHA is off the ground, for sure, but it hasn't flown over any high peaks. It figures, the Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans are hollering for Don Jonas' head after losing to Saskat- chewan last .Sunday. .They seem to forget that Jonas completed 252 passes for yards during the sea- son. .He guided the Bombers to first place and sold plenty of tickets. .Now, however, the boo-birds want his head. .And I know a couple of Redman's, namely Bruce and Neal, who also would like words with Jonas and the Bombers. .Then there's Wayne Bowes making all kinds of noise in racquet ball I always Ihouglil a racket ball was OUR you bounced up against the. house when your dad was trying to watch the Miss Canada Pageant. .Oh, that's corny. .Well, I said it before and I think it is worth mentioning, Hamilton Tiger-Cats are going to win the Grey Cun.

With that statement Sam Et- heverry ended his three-year caching career with Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Foot- sail League Friday when team wner Sam Berger told a news onferenee that he had accepted lis coach's resignation. "I've been under a lot of pressure in my time, but this 'ear had to be the Stcheverry said after his resig- nation was announced. The former star quarterback ith Montreal from 1952 hrough 1960 was the target of he MTath of players, fans and the media throughout the 1972 season as his charges won four and lost 10 regular-season games before bowing 14-11 to Ottawa Hough Riders in the lastern Football Conference semi-final. Etchcverry summed it all up ,-ith: "1 don't plan to discuss 11. I'm just glad it's over." While Etcheverry was out, general-manager J. I. Albrecht, also rumored fired earlier this week, was still in. "Mr. Albrecht. was and is IK ganeral manager. What I hac said was privileged informa- added. the Montreal owner The last remark was a refer- ence to an interview he had earlier this week with John tobertson of the Montreal Star. 3erger allegedly said then that Albrecht would be replaced be- cause "he's not a general man- ager." Albrechl will be charged with finding a new coach for the Als. Names already being mentioned include NFL assistant coaches John Michaels and Sam Rutig- liano and former Alouettes de- fensive coach Bob Ward. Ward quit the team in a huff at the start of the season, call- ing Etcheverry "incompetent." In another palace coup, general manager Red O'Quinn was sacked and replaced by Al- brecht. O'Quinn, Ward and Berger came over from the 1969 Grey Cup-winning Rough Riders when the latter bought the Als in December of that year. Only Berger remains at the moment. After instant success in 1970 resulted in a Grey Cup win for the Montreal team, the club quickly reverted to mediocrity the next season, failing to make the playoffs. "I thought I had a winning Bergcr said Fri- day of the early period. "But things don't always work out the way you planned." Allison earns racing title NEW YORK (AP) Bobby Allison, who won the money battle in stock car racing but lost the championship war to arch rival Richard Petty, has been named Driver of the Year by a select panel of automotive sports writers. Allison, 35 on Dec. 3, will re- ceive the Golden Eagles Trophy and a bonus emblematic of the best over-all performance by a United States driver in 1972. The awards, including runner- up trophies and each to George Follmer, Mark Donohue and Bobby TJnser, will be made at a luncheon in New York next month.
