Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1Mb Lt t HHHILUjlt HLHALU Saturday, UCIODVr 1J, 1974 CRUISI TO 10th ANNUAL COMMONWEALTH GAMES Austria Jan. New Zealand Feb. 9lh. Priced from 00 pjr person (sharing) For complete Information and .bookings contact: ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHON6 321-3201 Pat Sullivan The first game of the 1973 World Series should almost be history bvthe time you read this profound prognostication. However, as I see it New York Mets should be the world champions in no more than six games. Scoft at my thinking ai) you want You need go no further than last Saturday's cojumn to find I picked the Mets over the Cincinnati Reds and Oakland Athletics over Baltimore Orioles Heie is why I think the Mets will bring the Metsomania induced fans of New York their second world title in five years Position by position there is very little to decide between the two clubs At catcher both Ray Fosse and Jerry Grote are better than average receivers. Grote, at present is swinging a hotter bat than Fosse but that could change Each has ex- cellent ability in handling pitchers I can't see any edge to either club First base appears almost in the same shape as catcher for both clubs Good glove men Mets" John Milner carries most of the power for New York according to the season's chart but has shown little thus far Milner hit 239 and 23 home runs Gene Tenace. who also catches in tight spots for the Aihletics was a 259 hitter and had one more homer than Milner Tenace was brilliant at the plate for Oakland last year. Still I would have to call it even Felix Millan Mets' second baseman was a solid .290 hitter er the year and has provided much of the Met spark in post pun thus far Ken Boswell is his backup but should see liule action if any Dick Green patrolled the keystone sack for the s in all five playoff parties Not a great hitter, in n short Aeries Green could surprise but I doubt it I have to favor V'ilcin plightlv Sal gets a clear nod over Wayne Garrett at third Bandn Oal land's captain has experience, hit .287 over the year and belted 32 home runs Garrett came up with a 258 average v.ith 16 home runs but has come up sour in the playoffs Bando has two home runs to his playoff credit and should had three Bando is the stronger of the two. The only difference between shortstops for both clubs really is Bert Campanens' base running Bud Harrelson of 'he Mets is an excellent fielder as is Campy Neither tear the cover off the ball but both have been known to be good in the clutch Campanens. however, tests pitchers severly when on base Harrelson was 258 over the year and no home runs. Campanen-, hit 249 with four circuit blasts I have to give the -Vs slight r'dge here In the outfield sticking strictly to players who I expect to start, the Mets, 1 feel are better all round. With a healthy Rusty Staub they get my pick, but not by much Cleon Jones is hitting. Staub was and Don Hahn covers a lot of grass in the outfield I can t help thinking Reggie Jackson will break out of his 3 for 20 playoff slump. He's too good a ball player when it counts Vic Davihllo. when in the lineup, has been tough and Joe Rudi is a solid performer Still, if Staub is back in the lineup and can swing a bat I like the Mets. Whai two clubs in baseball have better pitching staffs than the Met.s and Oakland9 Probably the two best righthanders in the game today anchor the hill staffs Tom Seaver of the Mets and Jim "Cat- fish' Hunter are superb. Vida Blue of the A's has been hot and cold thus far while Jerry Koosman impressed in his out- ing against Cincinnati John Matlack of the Mets was to have faced Ken Holtzman of the Athletics in today's game If Matlack is as sharp as he was against Cincinnati the A's and Holtzman are in for a battle And don't forget, the Mets have seen a lot of Iloltzrnan when he was with the Cubs in Chicago. Matlack. to the A s is an unknown factor If the clubs decide on four starters, which is very doubtful with the travelling days, George Stone will go for the Mets and a disappointing Blue Moon Odom for the Athletics. It is difficult to choose between the two clubs concerning starters I would have to say it's a draw. In football, they say games are won in the trenches. This can also be said for baseball, in particular now with the bullpen specialists. How would you like to have Tug McGraw and Rollie Fingers in the same bullpen9 McGraw saved 26 games for the Mets this year while Fingers was the fireman in 22 for Oakland This could be the deciding factor in a close series Which relief artist will be most effective And don't forget, as small a thing as it is, the Oakland pitchers have been to the plate very few times this year what with the designated hitter This gives the Mets a slight edge that could count I'm not saying that the Met pitchers are 300 hitters Far from it But they do have a decided edge over the A's in that department And all it usually takes is a small edge So there have it I m sure you have your own ideas but 1 still like the Met.s in six games CANADA'S NO. 1 LOADER BOBCAT Loads Unloads Hauls Lifts Shovels Scoops Sweeps 4 (heel dme 4 models 500 Ib. to Ib Rent xitti or mttwut operator Contract pnccs PHONE 328-4765 AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR C and J EQUIPMENT RENTALS 1410 2nd Ave. S., Lethbridge Pass loses game CALGARY (Special) The directors of the Alberta Junior Hockey League have upheld a decision by league president Jim Scoular and re- ject an appeal by the Pass Red Devils. The Red Devils had appeal- ed Secular's decision to award a game between the Pass and the Lethbridge Longhorns played Oct. 2 to Lethbridge. The game originally ended in a 4-3 overtime decision in favor of the Red Devils. Scoular ruled that the referee in charge of the game had erred in disallowing a first period goal by Lethbridge. The referee had ruled that a Lethbridge player had been left off the score sheet and the goal, therefore, must not count. However, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association changed the ruling this year so that a team inadvertently leaving a player off the score sheet should not lose goals scored up to that time. In his decision, Scoular said that had the goal been allowed, the Longhorns would have won the game in regula- tion time. The rejection of the appeal leaves the pass Red Devils leading the league with four wins in five starts, their only loss being the protested game The Red Devils will look to increase their league lead tonight at 8 30 at Blairmore Calgary Canucks, the defending league champions, will pay a visit to the Blair- more Arena to meet the Devils. The Devils are idle Sunday Next Tuesday evening they will be in Lethbridge for their third meeting with the Longhorns. The Devils won the season opener 4-1 but lost the protested contest in the committee rooms Bowling BOWL MJMODE HOMES Chris Ell 255 Marlene Parascak 272.

Blocked field goal Nothing went right for the Winston Churchill Bull- dogs Friday night at Henderson Park. Bulldogs, earlier in the year, slapped Catholic Central Cougars 35-0 but Trounce Bulldogs 44-0 Friday Friday it was the Cougars' turn as they dumped the Bulldogs 44-0 and even blocked a field gaol attempt that the Bulldogs tried after everything else went bad. Cougars gain sweet revenge By LLOYD YAMAG1SHI Herald Sports Writer The Catholic Central Cougars gained sweet revenge along with a share of second place in the western division of the Southern Alberta High School Football League at Henderson Stadium Friday night The Cougars had carried around a sour tasle in their mouths after suffering a 35-0 loss to Winston Churchill in the season opener, but the bitterness disappeared after crushing the Bulldogs 44-0 in their second and final match- up this year. The lop-sided victory lifted the Cougars into a second place tie with the Bulldogs both sporting 3-2 records On the other hand, the defending champion Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams strengthened their hold on first place last night by scoring an im- pressive 35-12 decision over Crescent Heights Vikings in the Gas City. The one-sided verdict was the fifth straight win for the Rams in as many starts Meanwhile at Henderson Stadium last night, the Cougars used a three-cylinder power-vac to propel their at- tack against the Bulldogs Halfback Guy Pomahac was the key spark-plug that generated the Cougars' offen- sive unit as he galloped to four touchdowns while lagging the ball 12 times for 158 yards. His major scores were of- ficially recorded on runs of 95 yards, four yards and four yards. Touchdown number four was a result of a 15-yard pass play from quarterback Allan Boras. Fullback Steve Devcic and halfback Dave Jackson were the other two spark-plugs for the Cougars as they also came up with brilliant individual performances. Devcic, who started the season playing offensive end. blasted his way for a five-yard major while adding 103 yards on the ground in 18 carries Jackson, who was never given a really good opportuni- ty to score a touchdown dur- ing the game, aided in the lop- sided victory by chewing up 102 well-deserved yards in 16 tries The Cougars got their other points from Ted Feller, George Seiller and a two point safety touch. Feller scored six points scooting 43 yards after in- tercepting Bulldogs' quarter- back Derek Redman's pass while Seiller added a field goal and three converts In Medicine Hat last night, the Rams had an easy time as they picked up a 21-0 halftime lead to defeat the Vikings Rick Collier led the way for the Rams as he scrambled for two touchdowns while solo six-point efforts were made by Kelly Wilde, Dave Baines and Randy Stevens. Stevens also booted five straight con- verts Viking quarterback Tom Stevenson replied for one ma- jor score while he completed another touchdown pass to Pete Walsh for the other. EXTRA YARDS Pomachac's first touchdown came on the first play of the game as he took an end sweep play 95 yards It seems to me halfback Dave Jackson is getting the shaft by not being allowed to carry the ball when inside the opponent's 10-yard line Perhaps coach Dean Dahl has assigned all the short-yardage touchdowns to his powerbacks Pomahac and Steve Devcic'' The Bulldogs were definitely not the same team that played the Cougars in the season opener Coach Dahl has brought his team along nicely and could be the team that defeats the Rams for the first time this season.
