Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tutiday, Oclober 12, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Another big one in Regina Sunday CRUNCH B.C. Lion centre Bob Howes, left, collides head-on with Ottawa Rough Rider defensive end Tom Laputka during a Canadian Football League game in Ottawa. The Riders exploded for their biggest ouling of the year to down the Lions 45-21. Starry effort by Dib Espinoza Montana cowboy steals show By GARHY ALLISON Herald Staff A young competitor from Ar- lee, Mont., Dib Espinoza, liter- ally stole the show at the Inter- national All-Indian Rodeo finals held in the Lelhbridge Exhibi- tion Pavilion Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Espinoza took top honors in the steer wrestling event with a total time of 20.7 seconds on three head. He won the first and second go rounds in the event and finished third in the third go. Levi Blackwater of the Blood Reserve took the top money in the third go round Sunday af- ternoon. Gordon Crowchild of Sarcee had to toss his steer in the fast tune of 6.9 seconds Sunday to prevent Espinoza from moving all the way up from eighth place in the circuit standings and taking over the lead. The fast time by Crowchild enabled him to retain his lead and win the circuit title. Espinoza also walked off with the bareback trophy with a three-horse total marking of 178 points. His win in Lethbridge however was not enough to win the circuit championship taken Argos clinch top spot Coffey climbs ladder By THE CANADIAN PRESS Tommy Joe Coffey is one sea- son away from becoming the first Canadian Football League player to crack the barrier. The 32-year-old place-kicking offensive end scored a touch- down and kicked a field goal, a single and four converts for 14 points Monday as Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats crushed British Colum- bia Lions 36-3 in an interlocking game. Coffey's performance Monday moved him into the lead of the EFC's scoring race with 67 prints, one more than Gerry Organ of Ottawa Rough Riders, and increased his lifetime points-total to 914. The Ticats have three regu- lar-season games remaining and unless Coffey, in his 12th CFL year, has an incredible fin- ish the mark will not fall until next season. Ironically, the player closest to Coffey in lifetime points is Ji-ckie Parker, B.C. general manager, who racked up 750 points in 13 seasons with Ed- monton Eskimos. Toronto Argo- nauts and B.C. before he moved to his present post. The win, before Hamil- ton fans, left the Ticats alone in second place of the EFC stand- ings with 12 points, two ahead More sport on page 12 of Montreal Alouettes but eight behind Toronto, who clinched first place Sunday when they whipped the Alouettes 33-5. Ottawa, who dumped the Lions 45-21 'Saturday, are two points back of Montreal. Defensive end John Baker, de- fensive halfback John Williams and flanker Lewis Porter got Hamilton's other touchdowns Monday with Joe Zuger and Doug Mitchell adding singles. Ted G e r e 1 a's first-quarter field goal that evened the count was the only time B.C. hit the Scoreboard. The Ticats were leading 12-3 in the third quarter when Baker grabbed a loose ball at the B.C. 50-yard line and romped for a touchdown. Zuger hit Porter early in the fourth quarter with his second touchdown pass of the day; then about two minutes later Wil- liams intercepted a Don Moore- head pass and raced 80 yards to cross B.C.'s goal line. The remaining Ticats points came with less than three min- utes in the game when Doug Dersch broke through the Lions' defence to throw substitute quarterback Rusty Clark into the end zone for two points. THROWS INTERCEPTION Zuger completed nine of 15 pass attempts for 111 as he di- rected the Ticat offence. He had one interception. Moorehead hit on three of 11 attempts for 50 yards and had two interceptions. Clark com- pleted one of his two attempts and had the other intercepted. The Lions outrushed Hamilton 203 yards to 139 with B.C. full- back Jim Evenson gaining K yards in 20 carries. B.C. held the edge in first downs, 13-12. At Montreal Sunday, the vic- tory gave the Argos their only first-place finish since 1960. Toronto quarterback Joe Theismann ripped Montreal's defence apart with an over- powering aerial attack.

By whining two trophies in Lethbridge Espinoza qualified for another as he was named the rodeo's all-round cowboy. Leonard Little Bear moved up from second place and won the all-round honors for the circuit. He also copped both the circuit and Lethbridge cham- pionships in the saddle bronc riding event. Little Bear, of the Blood Re- serve, scored 173 points on three head and was the only competitor to stick to the backs of three of the tough McGowan saddle broncs. Bud Connelly of Browning was second with 122 on two head. Frank V a i 11 e, Browning, Mont., was a double winner as he captured both the local rodeo and the circuit's calf rop- ing titles. VaUle moved from third place on the circuit and into the lead, edging out vet- eran Fred Gladstone and Butch Tailfeathers for the title. Va'ille wrapped up three calves at the Lethbridge show a total time of 44.8 seconds and won the first and third go rounds. Fred Gladstone was the winner of the second go. Brian Many Bears was named the winner in the bull riding as he garnered 195 points atop three bulls. His highest mark was a 69 and won him the second go round, he also won the third go Sunday. Circuit bull riding king was Kelvin Fox who moved up from second spot to take the title. Emmett Augure and Vern Kuka, both of Browning, were named the team roping cham- pions for the circuit while Rob- ert Burns and Bill Devereaux, also of Browning, took the ro- deo honors. Louis Little Bear, younger brother of the all-round cham- pion, won the circuit honors in the boys' steer riding as well as winning the title at the Leth- bridge show. In the distaff side of the pro- ceedings Caen Ely won the se- nior barrel racing at the three- day show but the circuit cham- pionship went to Sarcee compe- titor, Sandy One Spot. Cathy Connelly won both the local and circuit championships in the junior girls division.

Riders close in on Stampeders By THE CANADIAN PRESS Underdog victories in tlie Western Football Conference during the holiday weekend kept Calgary Stampeders from lock- ing up first place and left Brit- ish Columbia Lions and Winni- peg Blue Bombers tied for the last playoff spot. Second-place Saskatchewan Roughridcrs defeated first-place Calgary 24-17 Monday, setting up another game between the same clubs next Saturday in Regina that may decide the reg- ular season champion of the WFC. Last-place Edmonton Eski- mos, who had nine new players in the lineup, gained their third victory in 13 games with a 22-14 win over Winnipeg Sunday in Edmonton. E s k i mo s, with only faint hopes of gaining a playoff berth, are five points behind Winnipeg and British Columbia Lions who Sam Etcheverry facing another crisis with Als MONTREAL (CP) Head coach Sam Etcheverry of Montreal Alouettes plans to read the riot act to his play- ers today as the result of re- cent grumblings made by some team members. "This is not like Etcheverry said in an inter- view Monday. "A few hockey players around here had things to say last year and they wound up getting rid of the coach. "This isn't going to happen in my case. It some guys want to run off at the mouth, then they are going to soon find that I'll get rid of them." Etcheverry is facing his second crisis in as many years as head coach of the Als. Last season, he sus- pended Dennis Duncan and Bob McCarthy for the balance of the 1970 season when the two players went out on the town before a ball game. "I told these guys earlier that if they want to keep on, the way we've been losing football games, then teir jobs are going to be in jeopardy. "I don't deal in contracts and I don't know what most of them are making but I know they are a well-paid football team." "They have no complaints. I'll meet with J. I. Albrecht (personnel director) and Red O'Quinn (general manager) in the morning and we'll go over some possible changes." Reports Monday said that dissension has hit the defend- ing Grey Cup champions. One of the main causes of the dis- sension was John Carlos, the former United States track star who joined the team last month. "Fans keep saying 'throw more to one un- named player said. "Damn it, he can't catch the ball. The more you throw to him, the more we give u.p our short game that won the Grey Cup for us." "The quarterbacks d o n 't throw to him unless they're ordered another player added. "He doesn't know how to catch or run pass patterns. The other team knows it too." Carlos said earlier last week that he wanted to be used more as a pass receiver. "I can see some of the play- ers being unhappy over things John was quoted as saying last said Etcheverry. "But, anyone who says John Carlos' play is what is wrong with the Alouettes is being ri- diculous. It certainly hasn't been his fault that we haven't been scoring touchdowns all .year. "I'll admit it's possible I've been trying to bring John along too fast by playing him to give him experience. That might be, but not the rest." INSINUATION HURTS But the Carlos comments did not irk Etcheverry as much as the insinuation that some players have not agreed with Etcheverry's play-calling from the bench. "Dissatisfaction breeds con- growled Etcheverry. "I'd like to see the players who said something like that come forward and own up to it. That might not happen, of course, and I'm going to pry with the reporters and try and find out who. "If John Carlos is get- ting to much press then who is it who is writing about him all the time? That's you peo- ple. Every lime he opens his mouth, somebody writes something. "This certainly isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened in football. It happens to most losing teams. But, every time players start popping off about the manage- ment, it becomes like a dis- ease. "I think what's bothering most of the guys can be writ- ten off as simple frustration, but I'm just not going to let anything get out of hand. Comets winning streak ends The Raymond Comets' win- ning steak ended at five as the defending champion Picture Butte Ellcs came up with a 41- 27 victory in Western Eight Football League action over the the St. Mary's weekend. Meanwhile, Warriors kept their winning streak intact, creeping past the Nanton Knights 24-20 Saturday. After the weekend encoun- ters, the Comets, Warriors and the Elks find themselves in a three-way tie for top spot, but the Warriors currently hold the best record standing at 5-0. Rosewall captures net title VANCOUVER (CP) Vet- eran Australian Ken Rosewall won a one-sided victory over Tom Okker of The Netherlands, 6-2, 6-2, 6-4, in the final of the International Tennis Tournament Sunday. Conceding his opponent 10 years in age, Rosewall broke Okker's serve six times, while Okker did the same only once. The Dutchman had played Bril- liantly Saturday in upsetting Rod Layer of Australia, but slumped in the match against Rosewall. He committed numerous er- rors in service 'and ball return volleys. He missed half a dozen easy overhead smashes from comparatively short lobs by Rosewall, and his ground shots were weak. In a gruelling three-hour dou- bles final, veterans Rod Laver and Roy Emerson barely got by the Australian rookies John Al- exander and Phil Bent, 4-7, 6-7, 6-0, 7-5, 7-6. Allison triumphs CIIARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Bobby Allison, whose Mercury trailed at one point by almost two miles, won the rain-short- ened National 500 stock car race Sunday as a chilled crowd of looked on. The race, which started two hours late be- cause of an overnight ram, was called by officials after comple- tion of 357 miles. Allison's average speed for the distance was 126.140 miles per hour. Lethbridge Curling Club Annual Men's Stag Wednesday, Oct. 13 at p.m. in ihe Curling Club Lounge A turkey draw will be held if ice conditions ore satisfactory Due (o recent renovations old lounge furniture will be auctioned off previous undefeated The Comets and Elks sit with 5-1 records.

Glen Tanaka and Donovan Hattori chipped in with one major score each. For the Comets, Morris Aneca picked up two touchdowns, one coming on a 80 yard kick-off return. Wallace Stone and Rick Smith aided with one touchdown apiece. In other games played over the weekend, High River edged Cardston Cougars 14-13; Coal- dale Spartans whipped Vulcan 31-7 and the Claresholm squad frounced Milk River 32-6- Bruce Laidlaw was the hero for the High River Mustangs as he punted for a single point on the last play of the game. Lawrence Larson and Plu'l Irwin gave the Mustangs a touchdown each while Jack Rasmussen earned both the Cougars touchdowns. Gerhard Schmold had a spectacular game for the Spar- tans in their one-sided encoun- ter with the Vulcan Cougars. Schmold chewed up 190 yards on 20 carries which allowed him to score three big touch- downs while adding to this, a fi5 yard pass and run play to Richard Low for the other ma- jor score. Grant McKay managed the only major for the Cougars. Five players shared in the Claresholm Cobras scoring each picking up a touchdown. Ryan Taitanger, Lyle Holheis- er, Tim Smith, Jeff Lindsay and Bill Morkin all crossed the goal line once. Murray Cleland gave the Milk River club their first points of the season catching a touch- down pass from Fred Behrens. have 11 points each with three games to play. Calgary remains first with 18 points on a 9-4 record but Sas- katchewan, whose defensive line stymied the Stamps, is only two points back. RUNNING GAME LIMITED The Roughrider line limited the Stamps to 1C1 yards passing and 33 rushing while Ron Lan- caster led the visitors to 157 yards rushing and 246 passing. The Roughriders, eight points behind early hi the game, got a touchdown from Silas McKinnie, two converts and a field goal from Jack Abenschan, a single on a field gnal try and a touch- down pass to AI Ford. Calgary scored the first time they got the ball, quarterback Jim Luidsey marching from the Stampeder 42-y a r d -1 i n e and passing 13, yards to Jesse Mims for the touchdown. Larry Robin- son made the convert, the 300th of his career. The Stamps did not score again until the third quarter when Lindsey tossed a seven- yard pass to Rudy Linterman. Calgary's final two points came when Ford conceded two points rather than punt from his end zone into a 30 mile-an-hour wind. Lancaster's two touchdown passes gave him a career total of 187, breaking the record of 185 set by Russ Jackson in 12 seasons with Ottawa Rough Ri- ders. HOLE OF SPOILERS Edmonton seemed to be east in the role of spoilers in their victory. They would have to win all three remaining games while Winnipeg and B.C. lost all theirs to gain the last pla3'off position. The club ran and passed well and was tough on defence as it dashed Winnipeg's hopes of pull- ing ahead of the Lions. Gene Foster scored two touch- downs and Bobby Taylor one as the Eskimos kept the Bombers from reaching scoring territory until late in the third quarter. Dave Cutler kicked three con- verts and a single for the Eski- mos. The Bombers then got TDs from Bob Larose and quarter- back Don Jonas. Jonas con- verted both. The Eskimos are at Vancou- ver next Saturday. Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats are at Winnipeg in Ca- nadian Football League inter- locking action Sunday. EDMONTON 2J WINNIPEG H WPG.
