Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE October Officiating poor, the worst ever MOSCOW (AP) The chief referee of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association said Friday the work by referee Viktor Dombrowsky Thursday in Russia's 5-2 vic- tory over Team Canada was "the worst I've ever seen." Hugh McLean of Hamilton, who has officiated for many years in professional, amateur and Olympic com- petition, said in an interview he was amazed at Dombrowsky's showing. The Russian referee called 33 minutes in penalties against Canada and only nine minutes against Russia. Two misconducts helped pad Canada's total. Each team also drew one-five-minute major penalty although the Canadian player, Bruce MacGregor, did not drop his gloves or his stick in an altercation with Valery Vasiliev, who threw at least three punches after dropping his gloves. "We learned in the school for officials in Canada that Dombrowsky knows the said McLean. "The only assumption left is that he decided before the game where his sympathies would lie." McLean said initially that Canada would solve no problems by pulling out of the series, or by deciding to avoid such a series in the future, but later changed'his viewpoint. "I've been saying this is a game and that the game should be developed. This is true if it's treated like a game. "If it's a game it should be treated as such and if it isn't a game what are we doing McLean said Canadian referee Tom Brown will work the seventh game of the series tonight and Joseph Kom- palla of West Germany will work the final game Sunday. McLean said the level of officiating in Canada was better than in the first two games here. He suggested Roguld Szczapak, the Polish referee who worked Russia's 3-2 triumph in the fifth game, might have lost control as easily "and as drastically" as Dombrosky did. Soviets not happy The Soviet press Friday accused Team Canada hockey players of "brutality" and "lack of self-control" in the second game here of the 1974 Soviet-Canadian series. By all accounts the roughest game of the best-of-eight series, the Canadians lost 5-2 Thursday, their second consecutive loss in Moscow. "So, in losing, the Canadians lost control, confusing a tough struggle with undisguised wrote Prav- da, the Communist party newspaper. "The Canadians are the recognized masters of the power wrote Sovietsky Sport, "but when individual hockey players replace this toughness with brutality, they themselves undermine the high standards of Canadian hockey." Angered by what they considered to be unbalanced refereeing by Soviet Viktor Dombrovsky and evidently. frustrated by two quick goals in the first 2Vz minutes of the game, the'Canadians played aggressive hockey. It got even rougher after Bruce MacGregor got tagg- ed with what the World Hockey Association players con- sidered an undeserved five-minute major penalty in the second period. Referring to a fight that broke out on the ice after the game, Tass wrote: "The Canadian professionals found the strength to stage after the final buzzer a disgusting scuffle, having altogether forgotten that in sports one should face defeat in a knightly way: by respecting the op- ponent.'' TOMMY DAVIS WARMS UP FOR PLAYOFF AGAINST A'S. Weaver aware of A's ability, Oakland has edge in playoffs I T DON KIRKHAM INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD. DOUG BOYEH Sales Representative Continues to Serve Southern 308 9th St. S. Phone 328-1228 OAKLAND (AP) Oakland A's, after a lacklustre September, are back in baseball's money tober. "You'll see them doing things they haven't done in 15 or 20 said Baltimore manager Earl Weaver before sending his Orioles into today's American League playoff opener against the A's. The A's sent Jim Hunter against Mike Cuellar, 22-10, in the opening game of the best- of-five series. The teams went five games to settle last year's playoff, with Hunter, 25-12, throwing a shutout in the final. "A good club like the A's feels it can turn it on when it has said third baaseman Brooks Robinson of the Orioles. "A lot of ball players think that way, but sometimes you can and sometimes you can't." The A's, seeking a third straight World Series title, definitely feel they can win again despite a 14-16 record in their final 30 regular-season games. "Put out there and we'll play the game over and see what Reggie Jackson said recently of the Series winners' share. Baltimore won 28 of its final 34 regular-season games and needed every victory in the drive which carried the Orioles past New York in the GULFS WIHTER TUNE-UP 1 Ignition system analysis.

Eastern division race. "We were eight, games behind with 30 to play and it was almost time to start Mario sets lap record WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) Mario Andretti, hop- ing to become the first American to win the U.S. Grand Prix, set a lap speed record Friday in the first round of qualifying for the world's richest road race. Andretti, drove his new Par- nelli Jones racer at a speed of 122.54 miles per hour and grabbed a temporary hold on the front row pole position for Sunday's event. Three drivers who are con- tending for the 1974 Grand Prix championship also rank- ed among the top drivers go- ing into today's final sessions of trials. A 26-car starting field will be selected from the two days of speed runs. From these drivers will come the winner of the first prize and the successor to retired world titleholder Jackie Stewart. Emerson Fittipaldi of Brazil and Clay Regazzoni of Switzerland enter the 15th and final race of the season deadlocked, at 52 points apiece in the championship race. thinking about next said Robinson, who had a .288 batting average. Weaver said the A's, with a constant lead, were able to play it safe and look ahead in September and he expects them to open up, especially with their base running. "They didn't run much in September. Jackson and (Bert) Campaneris missed some games with injuries. You couldn't expect much from them with those two out. "The way for us to win is to keep their long-ball hitters in the park and their base stealers off the bases." Oakland manager Alvin Dark said: "I think Campy is 100 per cent and Reggie seems to be all right. We should be 100 per cent healthy." Dark admitted that Weaver surprised him by naming Cuellar, Dave McNalley and Jim Palmer as his starting pitchers for the first three games. Ross Grimsley, 3-0 against the A's this season, will be in the bullpen. Weaver said: "If Grimsley duplicates his regular-season record against the A's, we'll win the playoffs. If I started him, I could only use him twice." The 24-year-old left-hander beat the A's twice in relief for Cincinnati Reds in the 1972 World Series. "I asked to go to the bull- said Grimsley, who picked up a save in his only re- lief appearance this season. Reporters arouse Alston, Dodgers hit for power PITTSBURGH (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers, conceded an edge in pitching, surprisingly also had a power advantage over Pittsburgh Pirates as the two teams opened the best-of- five game series for Traffic jam at Vegas LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Dave Eichelberger got two breaks Friday that helped him take a share of the second- round lead in the Sa- hara invitational golf tourna- ment. The breaks on the last two holes gave Eichelberger, in a slump since his second-place finish here a year ago, a three- under-par 68 and a tie for first with fellow Texan Charles Coody. Coody, whose last victory in this country was his 1971 Mas- ters triumph, birdied three of his last four holes for a 66 and a 135 total, seven-under-par on the Sahara-Nevada Country Club course. They held a one-stroke advantage over Art Wall, 50, Bob Rosburg, 47, and Chi Chi Rodriguez, were five shots ahead of Johnny Miller. "I'm looking forward to a goo.d round said Miller, who had a 69 for 140." Miller came into this event fresh off his eighth triumph of the year. Ben Kern of London, Ont., was in contention with a 141 following a second-round 70. George Knudson of Toronto shpt a 70 for 141 and Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Ont., fired a 68 for 143. Rosburg had a 65, Rodriguez had a 68 and Wall's 67 included an eagle-two on the 13th hole. A group of six followed at 138. They included Lou Graham and Tom Watson, each with 66s, Al Geiberger, Charley Sifford and Joe Inman with 68s, and J.C. Sneed with a 71. Tom Weiskopf failed to make the cut for the final two founds. He had a 71-146, two strokes too high. Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Hale Irwin are not competing. Eichelberger hasn't led a tournament since 1972 and needs a strong finish to the season to gain his exemption for next year. Eichelberger birdied three par-five holes, two with short putts and the other after miss- ing a 10-foot eagle try, before he got the breaks that kept him in it. He had a long putt, about 30 feet, on his 17th hole, and hit it too hard. But the ball hit the back of the cup, bounced up and came to rest a foot away. On the next hole, his ap- proach shot hit a stake holding up a gallery rope and bounced back about pin high instead of going over the green and down a bank.

The Dodgers traditionally have been thought of as a team which bunted, sacrificed and singled for a run or two, then relied on pitching to win. The Pirates, on the other hand, are recognized as a hitting club, one whose power overcame defensive deficien- cies. Manager Walter Alston, in- dignant when asked what he thought were negative ques- tions, contended the 1974 Dodgers were superior over- all. "All I've heard is how the Dodgers choked last year, were going to choke this year, and now I'm asked how we feel about losing all six games (this season) Alston said. "What happened before doesn't mean a thing to me or my said the obvious- ly annoyed Alston. "Why don't you ask me how the Pirates will do in Los he asked. The Dodgers beat Pittsburgh in four of six in Dodger Stadium. "Check the he said. "Who hit more home runs, scored more The Dodgers actually rely on more than just 20-game winner Andy Messersmith, 19- game winner Don Sutton and reliever Mike Marshall, a 13- game winner with 21 saves. The Dodgers nit 139 homers to 114 for the Pirates, scored 798 runs to 751, batted in 744 runs to 692, and hit .272 as a team, just two points less than Pittsburgh's .274. Thus the Western champion Dodgers, who won 102 games and finished four ahead of run- ner-up Cincinnati Reds, are the choice to beat the Pirates and reach the World Series. Pittsburgh won the East by IVz games in a dogfight with St. Louis Cardinals that wasn't decided until the final day of the 162-game season. Right-hander Sutton, who won 13 of his last 14 starts, was Alston's choice to open the series against Pitt- sburgh's 16-game winner, Jerry Reuss. Sutton had a 1-2 record against the Pirates during the regular season, and Reuss a 2-1 mark with the Dodgers. Pittsburgh manager Danny Murtaugh wasn't taking any comfort in his team's 8-4 edge against Los Angeles during the season. "I'd say in a short series past performance means Murtaugh said. "Both teams won a lot of im- portant games during the season. Both teams are on an equal footing." Vancouver withdraws LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Vancouver, -B.C., withdrew its bid for the 1980 Olympic Winter Games today, leaving Lake Placid, N.Y., as the only applicant, the Inter- national Olympic Committee announced. The terse communique said the city of Vancouver Garibaldi officially notified the committee that "it was compelled to withdraw its bid to stage the XIII Winter Games in 1980." "While it regrets this decision, the International Olympic Committee can only accept it added. No reason for Vancouver's withdraw! was given in the statement and committee of- ficials were not immediately available for comment. "Although Lake Placid is now the only applicant, this in no way exempts it from presenting its candidature of- ficially and from fulfilling all the necessary conditions to be awarded the Winter it stated. Vancouver's withdrawal was foreshadowed last August when the British Columbia government rejected a proposal that the province should stage the 1980 Winter Olympics at Garibaldi park. This action was preceded by a third candidate Chanionix, France scrapp- ing its bid to host the Games.
