Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta y, 5, 1972 IHf HMAID Times improve at Whoop-Up Downs Speedy Son sets new mark By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer It seemed jual a matter of time before a track record would fall at the 1972 Fall Race Meet at Whoop Up Downs. Times began to pick up late Monday afternoon and then Tuesday Canadian Arctic, rid- den by Delbert Rycroft, was just a second off the five-fur- long mark. Then it happened. Wednes- day saw the seven furlong mark broken twice. Once in each of the last two races on the afternoon card. Rodwecder set the mark of flat during the six day Whoop Up meet in July this year. Speedy Son in the seventh and Burgundy Lass in the eighth both bettered the old standard Wednesday but the new mark belongs to Speedy Son. Ridden by jockey Griff Ray, Speedy Son romped home In 3-5 to win the featured seventh race before 900 fans. Burgundy Lass, wilh Gerry Kipling in the saddle, was clocked at 1-5, good enough to break Rodweeder's record, but not quite enough to outdo Speedy Son. Owned and trained by Arnold Ferguson of Calgary, Speedy son paid and Prince Clem, ridden b y Norm Jewell, won the first race and combined with Ex- panding to pay a daily double of Northern Emperor was scratched before the sec- ond race and set up a consola- tion double paying Jockey Rod Haynes escaped injury when he was thrown A KICK AWAY FROM SCORING Boston Bruins Ken Hodge (8) could almost kick the puck into the open net in this second period adion during last night's exhibition game with the New York Rangers in Boston Gardens. New York's goalie Ed Giacomin was off balance as Dale Rolfe camo in to slop the scoring. Other players ore tarry Sach- aruk (3) of Rangers and Wayne Coshman (1 2) of Bruins. Game ended in 3-3 tie. (AP Wirephoto) Meet Friday at Henderson RACE By Willie Kefchum Rams take on Cougars The Catholic Central Cougars and Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams will meet, in what could conceivably be, the most important Southern Alberta High School Football League game staged during the 1972 season Friday night. The defending champion Cou- gars currently lead the west division of the six-team league on four straight victories while the Rams trail in second with three wins hi four starts. The Rams suffered their only loss to the Cougars In the league opener by a slim 4-3 score. With only three league games remaining for each club, Fri- day night's encounter could possibly determine the west di- vision pennant winner. If the Cougars can come up' wilh a victory, they'll have a big edge over the Rams, who will have to win their remain- ing two games and hope the Cougars lose their final two en- counters. On the other hand, If the Rams come away winners Fri- day night, they'll take over the league-lead, due to the number of points scored between the two clubs in their two meetings. Both clubs are hurling some- what in their line-up, but the Cougars have suffered the most damage. Cougars' coach, Dean Dahl, will be without the services of three key players due to in- All Avill not fight Jones NEW YORK (AP) Muham- mad Ah' will not fight Al Jones in South Africa because it "be- came obvious that the South Af- rican government did not want to hold Bob Arum, All's lawyer, said Wednesday. Arum said there were prob- lems with the dates and seat- ing. "Blacks would have had to have at least 50 per cent of the seats and as good as seats as Arum said. He denied that pressure from black groups in Ihe United Slates forced the cancellation of the fighl. "If the arrangements had satisfactory, we would have gone he said. "Now it's off absolutely." been juries and this could possibly effect the outcome of Friday's match. Paul Kenwood, Peter Sikor; .nd Kelly Keenan are sidelined 'or the rest of the season and las put a few holes in the Cougars' front line. The Cougars will also be miss- ing the services of fullback, Joe Meli, who is currently touring Europe with Canada's judo team. At LCI, coach Jim has only a few problems and won't know how serious they are until Friday. A few of his starters have caught the flu while a couple of others have slight concussions. But if things go as planned, the battle of the year should be a dandy. Meanwhile the Winston Churchill Bulldogs will travel to Medicine Hat and face the Mo- hawks in an inter-locking league game Friday night. The Bulldogs are fresh from a 56-0 romping over Hie Cres- cenl Heights Vikings last Sat- urday night and have the mo- mentum lo better their current 2-2 record. Both games are set for p.m. Did Eskimos after Joe's leg? TORONTO (CP) Joe Theis- marm said Wednesday he heard Edmonton Eskimos were under instructions last Saturday to work on his once-broken ankle. The Toronto Argonaut quar- terback got into the game in the second quarter and aroused the Eastern Conference club to its best offensive performance of the year- Theismann, however, re-in- jured the ankle in the Uii rd quarter when tackled by Ed- monton's defensive end Tom Gay aixl the Eskimos hxmg on for a 31-30 victory in Canadian Football League interlocking action. Theismann, who got into a game for the first time since break ing his ankle in th e Argos' season opener against Montreal Alouetles, told the luncheon: "1 found out later they (Edmonton) were under instructions, if they had a good shot at the leg, to give it a tittle twist." The Toronto quarterback would not elaborate later on his talk to the Playback Club, a discussion group with fans, how he found out about the plot and who had issued the instructions. "I'm not going to say how or why or anything. I just know that's the way it is." Edmonton head coach Ray Jauch denied the charge in a telephone interview from Ed- monton. "I think TheLsmann is a high- class young man, but where he would get an assumption like that is beyond me. It's unfortu- nate that he was injured in the first place.
