Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October LETHBRIDOE Bombers trounce Eskimos Catholic Central Bombers bombed the Gilbert Paterson Eskimos 66-0 in the only Minor Football League game played Wednesday 'night at Henderson Stadium. The scheduled game between St. Mary's Warriors and Wilson Lions was postpon- ed at the request of the St. Mary's coach. His team was involved in a bus accident Monday night and he didn't feel they were ready to play so soon. The Bomber attack was led by Walter Montina with three touchdowns and six converts and Bill Caswell with three majors. One of Montina's ma- jors came as the result of a 75 yard run. Ivano Fraulin did some running as well, scoring two touchdowns after runs of 40 and'65 yards. Erwin Arnold and Sheen Keenan rounded out the Bombers' scoring with a touchdown apiece. The next games are slated for Oct. 16 when the Stampeders meet the Bombers and the Eskimos tackle St. Mary's. Oil Kings Garvey happy with it all., wants to defeat best team RON CEY DRENCHES DODGER VICE-PRESIDENT ARTHUR PATERSON edge Chiefs Alan Eagleson was a distraction Canada could have done without EDMONTON (CP) Defenceman Doug Johnson blasted a 50-foot shot past Kamloops' goalie Tim Priestley at of the third 'period Wednesday to give Ed- monton Oil Kings a 3-2 victory over Kamloops Chiefs in a Western Canada Hockey League game. The victory gave Edmonton a 2-1-1 record, while Kamloops has loss and one win. All the scoring took place in the third period, with Ed- monton jumping into a 2-0 lead early on goals by defenceman Robin Sadler and left winger Paul Mulvey. The goals came eight seconds apart. But Kamloops came back on two goals by Brad Gassoff to set the stage for Johnson's game winner. Kamloops took seven of 12 minor penalties. GORMAN WILL UMP NEW YORK (AP) Tom Gorman, veteran National League umpire, will be home plate umpire for the opening game of the world series Saturday, Baseball Com- missioner Bowie Kuhn an- nounced Wednesday. Other National League um- pires for the world series are Doug Harvey, second base, and Andy Olsen, left field. Bill Kunkel, first base; Don Denkinger, third base, and Ron Luciano, right field, will represent the American League. TORONTO (CP) Team Canada '74 disolved Wednes- day in a final flurry of bickering. The World Hockey Associ- ation players still were com- plaining about the poor treat- ment they received in Moscow, bugged hotel rooms and poor officiating. About 400 persons were on hand when the team arrived on a charter flight from Prague following a loss Tues- day to the Czechoslovakian national team. Alistair Gillespie, federal trade minister, welcomed the players and said that he shared their disappointment over losing the series against the Soviet Union. But he congratulated them "for staying in there and giv- ing it everything they had." From another quarter came a siap at defenceman Rick Ley who picked a fight with Valery Kharlamov at the cpnclusion of the sixth game against the Soviets. Senator John Godfrey said in the Senate Tuesday the government should apologize to the Soviet Union for "the stupid conduct of a hooligan like Rick Ley." "No one should call me that." said Ley. Goalie Gerry Cheevers, who returned home before the rest of the team, said he and other players found electronic listening devices in their Moscow hotel rooms. Cheevers said he thought the Russians could have listened in on some of the Canadians' strategy meetings and altered their play accor- dingly. Team Canada lost its eight- game series Soviets 4-1 with three games tied and there were com- plaints throughout about poor officiating. ,Vern Buffey, WHA referee- in-chief, saying the European officials were "worse than they were 10 years ago." Centre Andre Lacroix said some of the officials failed to call penalties against the Soviets. "We deserved all the penalties we got, but they should have got them too." Coach Billy Harris said any future team that faces the So- viets must be made up of "20 players with the attitude of Ralph Backstrom." Backstrom, a hard-working centre, said he would like to play the Russians again but only if the last four games are played in Canada. "They would treat us better if they knew we had the last control over said Backstrom. Harris said some of his players were not well motivated. He took much of the blame but also handed some to Alan Eagleson, National Hockey League Play- ers' Association executive director. Eagleson was in Moscow to see the final four games and for preliminary negotiations for a future series, but Harris said the Toronto lawyer was a distraction to the Canadian team.' "There was a strong pro- Eagleson faction on our team and some of our guys had strong anti-Eagleson said Harris. Eagleson said that talks were under way for another NHL-Soviet series. The first Team Canada, made up of NHL players, edged the Russians in 1972. NHL president Clarence Campbell said in Montreal the discussions concerned the 1975-76 season. LOS ANGELES an all-California World Series for the first time, and Steve Garvey says Los Angeles Dodgers wanted it that way. "We said collectively that we want to play the best said Garvey, hitting star of the Dodgers' 12-1 vic- tory Wednesday over Pitt- sburgh'that gave Los Angeles its first National League baseball pennant in eight years. "Oakland is the World Series champion and the- American League champion again, so we have to beat them if we want to prove we are the best team in baseball." The Gar- vey's two home runs and two singles, and Don Sutton's mas- terful pitching Wednesday- whipped the Pirates and won the best-of-five series three games to one. The two-time defending World Series cham- pion A's eliminated Baltimore Orioles by the same margin in games for the American League crown. The A's are expected to pitch Ken Holtzman, who blanked Baltimore last Sun- day, and Los Angeles will open the series with Andy Messersmith, who beat Pitt- sburgh on Sunday, in Saturday afternoon's game at Dodger Stadium. Dodger manager Walt Alston refused to draw a com- parison between the Dodgers and A's because he hadn't studied scouting don't know much about he said. The Pirates, who won the NL East title for the fourth time in the last five years, had no qualms about picking the Dodgers to win the World Series." Said Pirate manager Danny Murtaugh. "I don't predict the number of games the series will go. I'll root just 'as hard as any Dodger fan for them in the Series. It was a battle for the pennant up to now, and this is now a league vendetta." "They out-hit us, out- pitched us and just out-played us, all the way said Pirate centre fielder Al Oliver. "They deserve to go to the World Series." Sutton said he felt the Dodg- ers, despite a 2-1 lead, had their backs to the wall because Pittsburgh would have had momentum for a fifth game. Sutton added, "we would have had the best pitcher in the National League going for us." He meant Messersmith, the right-hander who was 20-6 in the regular season. Garvey and Jimmy Wynn both recalled having success against Holtzman before the left-hander was traded by Chi- cago Cubs to the A's. "In 1970, or '71, when I first came up to the Dodgers, I hit my second home run off him That's all I remember about said Garvey. "I've had good success against said Wynn. Oakland hurlers defeat Baltimore BALTIMORE (AP) Oak- land A's go after their third straight World Series baseball championship with ailing Reg- gie Jackson and the team's other erstwhile sluggers in a slump. But the resourceful A's manage somehow to score, and they still have magnifi- cent pitching to use against Los Angeles Dodgers. Both were apparent Wednesday in his right leg, had two hits in the 2-1 victory over Baltimore the four games. innings without advancing a runner beyond first base The A's weren't much better at the plate as they battled a Baltimore pitching staff which Oakland owner Charles O. Finley had feared would be tough to beat. Jackson, playing the final three games as a designated hitter while hobbled with a pulled hamstring muscle in Orioles which gave Oakland the American League pen- nant, three games to one. The A's scored their first run on four consecutive walks in the fifth inning and another in the seventh on their lone hit, a double by Jackson following another of the 11 walks off Mike Cuellar and Ross Grimsley. Winning pitcher Jim (Cat- fish) Hunter and reliever Rollie Fingers held the Orioles to five hits, with Baltimore finally ending a Beg- inning scoring drought on Boog Powell's ninth-inning hit. The A's pitching is what im- pressed Earl Weaver, the Baltimore manager. He predicted it would enable Oakland to join the 1936-39 and the 1949-53 New York Yankees as the only teams ever to win three World Series in a row. "Pitching dominated the Weaver said. "But that's the way we got into it, the way they got into it, and the way they're going to win the World Series." After banging three home runs to beat Hunter 6-3 in the series opener, the Orioles scored only one more run. Through the fifth inning of the final game, they had gone 15 Oakland's other three top run-producers, all of whom knocked in 73 runs or more during the regular season, didn't fare much better. Sal Bando did1 have two homers among his three hits, and his first homer won the third game 1-0. Joe Rudi was limited to two hits and Gene Tenace went 0-for-ll. Ironically, it was the hitless Tenace who drew the fifth-in- ning walk off Cuellar which forced home the first run Wednesday. Just before the game, man- ager Alvin Dark said: "The thing about our ball club, is that some way, some how, we're going to find a way to score." Afterwards, he pointed out that although the A's were next-to-last in the league in hits, they were second in scoring runs. For the Orioles, who won three consecutive American League pennants, 1969-71, it was their second straight loss to the A's in the championship series. Weaver bemoaned the fact that Don Baylor, whom Fingers fanned with two runners aboard to end the game, just barely missed catching Jackson's double Rookie Marson just a player October: Diy Dimitri Maitini Can you make a good dry martini with vodka?

MEAGHEftS DIMITRI VODK NEW YORK (AP) Mike Marson wants to avoid labels, except for toe one after his name which reads: .of the National Hockey League's Washington Capitals." He would prefer to be known as just another rookie forward trying to make it big in the NHL this year after being the leading scorer last season for Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey Association. "I'm no different than any other Canadian he says. "I always wanted to play in the NHL. I still have the little pair of skates my parents put on me when they dragged me out to a rink when I was about six years old." But it is hard not to think of Marson of Toronto as differ- ent. The fans at Madi- son Square Garden noticed it immediately Wednesday night in the Capitals' game against New York, one which ended in a 6-3 victory for the Rangers. With gone in the first period, he took his shift and and became only the second black man to play in the NHL in the league's 58-year his- tory. "I don't think of myself as being any kind of pioneer, such as Jackie Robinson or Frank he said of major league baseball's first black player and manager. "Frankly, I don't feel I'm any different than a white player. Checking glove Plate umpire John McSherry checks Dodger pitcher Don Sutton's glove for pine tar.
