Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD October 9, 1974 NHL season set, begins tonight By THE CANADIAN PRESS Jackie Gordon gets a rare second chance as coach of Minnesota North Stars when the National Hockey League opens its 57th season tonight. Gordon, who stepped down as Minnesota coach in favor of Parker MacDonald last November, will be back behind the bench when the Stars play Pittsburgh Penguins at Bloomington, Minn. The Stars kept Gordon on as a scout for the rest of last sea- son and gave him the general manager's job when Wren Blair was dropped in the off- season. Later, he got back his old coach's job as well. As coach and general man- ager, Gordon faces a building job with the Stars, who missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 1968- seventh in the West Division. Gordon is one of five coaches moving into new jobs this year with two of them, Bep Guidolin of Kansas City Scouts and Jim Anderson of Washington Capitals, making their debuts tonight with ex- pansion teams. Guidolin, who quit Boston Bruins in a contract dispute after leading them to a first- place finish in the East Divi- sion last the Scouts tonight against the Maple Leafs in Toronto. Anderson scouted for the Bruins last year after playing in the American Hockey League for 17 seasons and coaching minor league teams at Springfield, Mass., Oklahoma City and Dayton, Ohio.

Pirate bats boom LOS ANGELES (AP) A combination of Pirate bats and Dodger errors Tuesday kept Pittsburgh alive in its National League baseball playoff series with Los Angeles. Willie Stargell hit a three- run homer and Richie Hebner a two-run homer for the Pirates and the Dodgers made five errors as Pittsburgh beat Los Angeles 7-0. Los Angeles won the first two games of the best-of-five championship series at Pitt- sburgh. The loss left Los Angeles leading the best-of- five championship series 2-1. Fourth and fifth games are to- day and Thursday at Los Angeles. Stargell recalled another year when the Pirates had an uphill climb to victory. "In 1971 in Baltimore, we were supposed to be he said. The Pirates blasted Doug Rau for five first-inning runs on the homers by Stargell and Hebner. Right-hander Bruce Kison, only 9-8 in the regular season, handcuffed the Dodgers on two singles, both by Bill Russell, for 6 2-3 innings, when he tired and was reliev- ed by Ramon Hernandez. The Pirates broke out of a batting slump with 10 hits, in- cluding a double and two home runs. Fighting players will be expelled RICHIE HEBNER SLIDES IN SAFELY AT SECOND Oakland within one of winning it all CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Amateur Hockey Association in an attempt to crack down on fighting in minor hockey, has adopted a rule change that will automatically expel a player from a game for a fighting major. The resolution, adopted at a board of directors meeting last weekend but announced Tuesday, is identical to one re- jected by the Ontario Hockey Association last year. The rule change reads: "A major penalty for fighting will mean expulsion of the offender for the balance of the game. player that has been ejected from the game for fighting in three games will be reported to the hockey association president for further disciplinary action. "That any participation in a fight by a player after the ter- mination of the game" means that he is automatically sus- pended for the next game and will be liable to a possible fur- ther penalty at the discretion of the president." A note attached to the an- nouncement of the rule change adds that "where one player is obviously the at- tacker and the other player is tlie defender, the referee may in his discretion penalize only the aggressor." A prepared statement from the AAHA said the league has become "increasingly con- cerned about the incident of fighting in hockey and proposes to implement the foregoing on a one-year trial basis for the 1974-75 season' The AAHA also passed a resolution "that a player. receiving a second high- sticking penalty during a game shall also be assessed an automatic game mis- conduct." The rule changes apply to hockey in all levels of com- petition played within the jurisdiction of the AAHA. BALTIMORE (AP) Oak- land A's seem to have dis- covered a way to win without fighting, much, among them- selves. The A's moved to within a game of winning their third straight American League pennant when they shaded Baltimore Orioles 1-0 Tuesday and they haven't had a decent internal squabble since early in the season. Sal Bando's fourth-inning homer was enough to give Vida Blue, who pitched a two- hitter, the victory. The A's second consecutive shutout, extending Baltimore's non-scoring str- ing to 22 innings, gave Oakland a 2-1 lead in the best- of-five championship series between the division leaders. Jim (Catfish) Hunter, a 25- game winner who lost the series opener to end his per- sonal seven-game streak against the Orioles, will try to wrap up the playoffs for the A's in today's game. Mike Cuellar, a 22-game winner who beat Hunter in the first game, will start for Baltimore if he can shake off arm stiffness which bothered' him Tuesday. Ross Grimsley, an 18-game winner, will stand- by. The Orioles rallied from a similar deficit last year before dropping the deciding fifth game. Oakland then went on to win its second straight seven-game World Series. "Vida threw the best game of his said Bando, who homered on a 3-2 fast ball from Jim Palmer in the fourth inning, "because it was the pressure of a playoff game." The homer was the second in two games for Bando, who didn't hit any of his 22 regular season homers off Baltimore pitching. Palmer got some consola- tion from the homer. "At least it was better than Reggie (Jackson) hitting he said. "We'd still be out there. Reggie would still be circling third base." Palmer accused Jackson of "making a farce out of the game" with his home plate gyrations in the ninth inning. "I told him to get back in the Palmer said, "and that he should get warmed up in the dugout before coming to the plate." Jackson, playing as Oakland's designated hitter because of aching leg muscles, then reached first on a single through the box. The A's were getting along together comparatively well, but there was a moment of tension in the Oakland dugout. First baseman Gene Tenace reluctantly left the field in the seventh inning when he was replaced by pinch-runner Herb Washington after draw- ing a walk. "I don't think you take out one of your best defensive players in that said Tenace, whose helmet rolled to a stop at manager Alvin Dark's feet after he slammed it in disgust. "It was a bad decision." Dark tossed the helmet out of the dugout, drawing boos from many in the crowd of 060 who thought it came from Tenace. Blue, who had failed to win in post-season play while los- ing two playoff games and two World Series decisions, struck out seven. 931 Minor Hockey boys register A record number of Lethbridge boys, 931, have registered for the Lethbridge Minor Hockey League's 1974- 75 season. The added number, an in- crease of 69 over last year, will mean the formation of four new teams and added problems for the scheduling of ice time. Once the registrations have been sorted out the 931 boys, between the ages of 10 and 18, will be placed on teams. When the selection of teams is completed, the coach of each squad will contact his own players and advise them as to practice times and game dates. Practices are continuing throughout this week for boys trying out for "Rep" teams. Thursday's and Saturday's schedule is as follows: Thursday, Oct. 10th 6.00 to p m Pee Wee Voyaguers and Marlands to 9'00 p m All new pee wee players who have not played in Minor Hockey before. t 9.30 p.m. Bantam ACT Reps and Labor Club Bees.

Because they're less cautious, it may pay for you to be a little more cautious. By driving a Volvo, for instance. The Volvo body is so strong we've stacked seven Volvos on top of one another without crushing the fading, even after repeated panic stops. So Volvo has disc brakes on all four wheels. And Volvo doesn't stop there. It has a braking system with two independent sets of three-wheel disc brakes. If one set fails, the other still gives you about 80% of your braking power. Of course, driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as mechanical failure. So Volvo comes with bucket seats that let you would go down to their third straight Canadian Football League setback. But coach Marv Levy decid- ed to make a quarterbacking change, sending in veteran Sonny Wade to replace Jimmy Jones. Wade responded to the call by firing touchdown passes to Peter Dalla Riva and Johnny Rodgers to give Montreal a 28-28 tie with Ed- monton Eskimos before fans. Don Sweet converted both late touchdowns, a second- quarter score by Ian Mofford and a third-quarter TD by Steve Ferughelli. Calvin Harrell scored both Edmonton touchdowns with Dave Cutler adding two con- verts, a pair of singles and four field goals. Most fans who turned up on a chilly fall evening at the Autostade were beginning to wonder about their home team which continually sputtered on offence in the first half. The win left Montreal in first place in the Eastern Football Conference with 15 points, three ahead of Ottawa Rough Riders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Edmonton is se- cond in the West, one point behind first-place British Columbia Lions.
