Sofurdoy, October 3, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Ingarfield Scores In Oakland Victory Canadiens, Maple Leafs Settle For Tie By THE CANADIAN PRESS Minnesota North Stars gave indications last April they were ready to replace St. Louis Blues as the National Hockey Leagues' top expansion club. After a knocked-down, rough-'n-tumble semi-final, St. Louis prevailed. But only four goals separated the two teams in the series, won by the Blues 4-2. I n their first meeting this year, Minnesota nearly ran St. Louis out of B1 o o m i n g t o n, Minn., in the first period Friday night but had to settle fo ra 2-2 exhibition tie. In other games, Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs settled for a 1-1 tie at Halifax and Oakland Seals dumped Rochester Americans of the American League 6-1 at Rochester. Minnesota peppered St. Louis goalie Ernie Wakely with 23 shots in the first period but beat him only once, on Danny Grant's unassisted shot from the point. BLUES REBOUND A goal by Ted Harris early in the third made it 2-0 but the Blues rebounded on scores by defenceman Barclay Plager and Red Berenson. Toronto and Montreal went through two scoreles periods at Halifax before Gary Monahan put the Maple Leafs in front at 9:59 of the third. Yvan Cournoyer evened the scored two minutes and five seconds later with a high shot that eluded Leaf goalie Bruce Gamble. Norm Ferguson, with two, Billy Hicke, Ted Hampson, Earl Ingarfield and Wayne Muloin were the Oakland marksmen while Milt Hohol tallied the lone Rochester goal to finish the scoring. / The North Stars announced REDS' MANAGER PITCHES - Cincinnati Reds' manager Sparky Anderson pitches for batting practice Friday on the eve of the National Leauge playoffs. Reds met Pittsburgh Pirates today in the first game of a best-of-five series-for the right to meet the winner of a series between Minnesota Twins and Baltimore Orioles in the World Series next week. Abide By CAHA Request Rustlers Will Play RED DEER (CP) - The coach and owner of the Red Deer Rustlers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League Friday dropped his plan to boycott the opening game of the season today in Ponoka. Coach Alf Cadman had announced that his team would not play unless he got back three players he said had been taken from the Rustlers by teams in the Western Canada Hockey League.

The French girls sank to a third-round total of 154 on rounds of 76 by Catherina La-coste de Prado and 78 by Bri-gitte Varangot. The U.S. team, seven shots behind after two rounds, got a one-over-par 74 from Jane Bas-tanchury and 75 from U.S. champion Martha Wilkinson. The top two scores each day for each team count toward the total. France has 445 after three rounds, the Americans 447. thing until a decision is made." Cadman said the issue could lead to hockey trades but added he would "want some pretty good players in return." If the three players involved don't want to play in Red Deer, he said, "it might be better to send them where they want to play." Cadman announced his plan for boycotting the opening game after Wayne Forsey and Brian Kochan left the club to play with SVift Current Broncos of the Western Ca n a d a Hockey League and Bob Stumpf departed for Estevan Bruins of the WCHL. Ron Butlin, president of the WCHL, had said that Stumpf and Kochan were named as automatic releases last July but Cadman argued that all sides had agreed that the automatic release system wouid not be used this season. George Harvie of Edmonton, president of the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association, said Friday that Stumpf had been suspended for leaving the Rustlers. 1 Mi AVENUE ft 6th STRUT, lMi STREET I iii AVENUE, LETHIRIDGE, ALBERTA Requires AUTOMOBILE SALESMEN An energetic Mercury dealership requires automobile salesmen immediately.

Cougars spread their scoring out over four quarters in earning the triumph before some 500 fans. The combination of Greg Royer and John Seaman performed brilliantly Friday coming up with two touchdowns. After John Kostiuk put the Cougars ahead with a 45-yard romp for a major score in the first quarter, Royer and his mate went to work. In the second quarter Royer hit Seaman with a four-yard toss and the Cougars led 14-0 at half time. Red Deer scored their lone touchdown in the third quarter before Royer and Seaman broke their backs with a 90-yard pass and run play. Bob Parkyn closed out the scoring for the Cougars with a five - yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. John Dudas converted all four majors for the winners. Cougars picked up 28 first downs in the game and came away without any injuries heading into Friday's important encounter.

Round Lowest This Year WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -Bobby Mitchell shot a seven-un-der-par 64 Friday for a 36-hole total of 130, the lowest on the PGA tour this year, to take the second-round lead in the $60,000 Azalea open golf tournament. The previous low was 131 by Arnold Palmer in the Greater Greensboro Open last spring. Mitchell, 27, seeking his first victory in four years on the tour, held a two-stroke lead over defending champion Dale Douglass, who equaled the course record with a 63 to go with his opening 69 for a 132 total. Seventy-three players survived the one-under-par 141 cutoff for the final rounds today and Sunday. Gibson Lands Big Contract ST. LOUIS (AP) - Pitcher Bob Gibson landed a $150,000 salary Friday to become baseball's highest-paid player, St. Louis Cardinals said Friday. A Cardinal spokesman said: "Gibbie's about the highest.

Free instruction upon request OPEN: Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Club located 1V4 miles south of the Drive-in Theatre on Highway No. 5 and lVx milet west. For further Information Phone 327-8127 or 327-6331 TVEXT TIME I receive an invitation to go fishing in Florida, I just might stay home. The destination was Naples, on the northern edge of the Everglades where the Mercury people were holding their showing of 1971 models of outboards and snow vehicles. I have always had a storybook intrigue for the Everglades and the surrounding area. The Mercury people were wonderful hosts and everything was always in readiness as scheduled-everything that is except the co-operation of the tarpon. For years I have been green with envy every time I've seen a photograph or film strip of Ted Williams tussling with an air-borne tarpon. In fact it was only a month or so ago that I watched a half hour program of Ted whacking into 70 and 80-pound tarpons on a fly line. ? ? ? HAD I HAVE TIED into one of those lunkers, I'm not sure what I would have done. The temperature every day was around the 90 above mark. The humidity was always 85 to 90 per cent when it wasn't raining. There was almost constant action every time we went out. But for yours truly, as well as the majority of the others, the catches were mainly small tropical species which few people except the natives could identify. Lee Straight of the Vancouver Sun who usually pays his respects here each fall when the pheasant season is on, and his partner Jim Railton of Vancouver, were two who tied into some tarpon. But, even master angler Straight, who has represented Canada in international tuna competitions couldn't hamg onto any of the three that struck his lure. Of course Straight didn't have his own tackle and the tackle we were using left something to be desired. Tarpon, and another good fighter, the snook, hang out in warm, shallow waters of the brackish bays and lagoons that tangle through the entire coastline. We saw several dolphin on one of the larger cruises that we were on, but one afternoon Red Wilkinson of Regina and I were in a 10-foot punt in one of the lagoons when the deafening stillness of the hot afternoon was broken by the surfacing of a dolphin not more than 100 feet away. All of a sudden there must have been 100 fish of various kinds, shapes and sizes in ttie air and skittering along the surface of the water heading for the safety of the jungled undergrowth near the shorelines. A nearby native fisherman whom we had been chatting with off and on, said: "Well, that settles that." "Settles what," Red and I quizzed at the same time. He said that when dolphin were around forget about angling. Everything goes into hiding-and he was right. WE PACKED IT UP and started heading back to the Naples Cove Inn. When we were about 100 yards from shore, down came the skies. By the time we hit the dock there was an inch of water on the bottom of the punt. It rained in sheets for about 30 minutes. The airline flights from Denver on were something else too. Storms and hurricanes seemed to be everywhere. Over Dallas, Texas this included the control tower telling the captain of our plane to climb to just under 40,000 feet and go into a holding pattern until some kind of a monstrosity passed underneath. We were bumped around up there for well over an hour. EVEN THOUGH IT'S hunting time in southern Alberta, the real rejoicing is the success of stocking Tyrrell's Lake with rainbow trout. Bet there'll be 50o fishermen out there this Sunday. Fel Baiderson of Magrath, president of the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's Association, deserves the honor of Sportsman of the Year, for being the driving force behind the Tyrrell's Lake success story. Vasko. who played 10 years with Chicago Black Hawks and later with Minnesota, said: "I'm struggling all the time and can't make the moves like I used to." The Sabres also were involved in a trade, exchanging right wingers with St. Louis. Craig Cameron returned to his former Blues' mates for Ron Anderson. Philadelphia Flyers returned two injured players to the team. Gary Dornhoefer had been sidelined with a knee injury and Serge Bernier was nursing a left shoulder. 12 GAMES SET Twelve games are scheduled during the weekend with six on tap tonight. Pittsburgh Penguins play Buf. falo at Peterborough, Chicago is in Toronto, St. Louis entertains New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings are at Victoria against Vancouver Canucks, Detroit Red Wings face their Central Hockey League farmhands, Fort Worth, at Norfolk.
