Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ihurtday, Otteb.r 14, 1971 THf IRHBRIDOE HMAID 11 Rangers suffer drubbing at home Burly Bruins in clawing mood By THE CANADIAN PKESS If coach Punch Imlach Is wise, he'll have his Buffalo Sabres honed to a keen edge for tonight's National Hockey League game in Boston. The Bruins have begun to growl after a distressing start In the 1970-71 season. They turned vicious Wednesday and clawed New York Ranger? 8-1 beat back the Bruins, but right on the Blueshirts' home scored only once, late In the ,e second period Boston's star centre Phil Es- posito got the opener, scoring a porrer play in the early min- utes of the game. The Rangers, who tied an NIIL record last year by losing only twice at home, tried to Herron proves he can do it LOIS GLOVER One of the stars of the All-Amcri- caii Redheads basketball cluli that sees action against the Commercial League all-stars Friday night at the Sports Centre. Redheads open local hoop year The 1971-72 basketball season in Lethbridge opens Friday night, and it's going to be something different. The Men's Commercial League all stars will take on the touring All American Red- heads, an American women's team that has a record of win- ning a great many more games than it loses against male op- position. The team is comprised en- tirely of redheads and they've long been drawing big crowds on their barnstorming tours. Game time at the Sports Cen- tre is The Redheads were formed in 1936 and they've proven to be popular gate attractions with their skilled work on the hard- wood and their laugh provok- ing antics BOYS' AND GIRIS' SKATE EXCHANGE WINNIPEG (CP) Foot- ball is a game of giants, men who tower over the average individual. Seldom do they allow a midget to invade their domain. Halfback Ron Stewart cracked the barrier for the Ottawa Rough Riders and went on to an illustrious car- eer in the Eastern Football Conference. Now, it appears, it is the turn of the Western Football Conference and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Bombers, who have been unable to make the WFC playoffs the last five seasons, went into training camp with a number of big backs like Charlie Bryant, Dick Smith, Paul Williams, Amos Van Pelt and Canadian Clayton McEvoy. Hidden around then' knee- caps was little Mack Herron, all five-foot-five, 175 pounds of him. Herron, a 23-year-old for- mer Kansas State star, has fought, scratched and hustled his way into the No. 1 spot in the Bomber backfield, despite suspicions the giants would mangle his seemingly fragile frame. SIX HAS ADVANTAGE "Im only five-foot-five, but really I have the frame of a six-foot man and I feel Im durable, he says after a half-season in the WFC. "Ive never really been in- jured enough to keep me out of a game since high school. The fact Im running so close to the ground works in my favor, since its not easy to hit me around the knees. Instantly dubbed "Mighty Mac by Bombers fans, Her- ron once dreamed of being six-foot-four but he quit grow- ing 11 years ago. "I knew then I wasn't going to grow any more, so I just stopped thinking about it. 1 knew na miracles were about to happen. The son of a construction worker, brought up in Chica- gos west-side ghetto, Herron is one of the main reasons Bombers are playoff contend- ers this year. Despite his size, he has been the clubs workhorse, av- eraging about 17 carries a game in the Bombers first nine appearances this season His work load has some fnas worried, but Herron disa grees, saying a back needs about a dozen carries just to get the feel of the game. "I think it looks different to the fans because all they see is the contact, and some big dudes falling on top of me Its not like that at all.

While running is Herrons main concern, he has also de- veloped into a solid blocker and pass receiver. But he uses his size to best advan- ,age on running plays. "Most linemen react by standing up straight, and they mve a hard time seeing me over the other linemen. It and of provides a shield at imes. "The one handicap is the quarterback has a hard time ticking me up behind a line- Dacker when Im running a pass pattern.

Mrs. Parry is 82 years old' Tuesday she scored a hole-in-one. "It was only a 95-yard the eighth, she said, 'but I was thrilled to bits. Ive had two holes-in-one be- fore, but they were years ago.

McQuay will not be at his reg- ular position, Cahill said, but will be used as a deep receiver, alternating with Dave Cranmer. "We'll let him get the feeling of being hit said Cahill. McQuay suffered a cartilage tear in his knee during a game in Toronto against Calgary Stampeders Sept. 25 and missed two games. Cowboys sign former Viking CALGARY (CP) Reggie Holms, who plays either as an offensive or defensive back, has been put on a five day trial by Calgary Stampeders of the Western Football Conference. Holms, cut last week by Minnesota Vikings of the Na- tional League, was a 12th round draft choice. Rod Gilbert was the marks- man, collecting his 600th career point, but Boston goalie Ed Johnston stopped 34 other shls. GIACOMIN STOPS 35 Ed Giaeomin also handled 35 shots in the New York net, but missed those fired by Ed West- fall, Mike Walton, Fred Stan- field 'and Derek Sanderson. Westfall accounted for two of the Boston goals. In other games Wednesday, Chicago Black Hawks blanked St. Louis Blues 1-0, Pittsburgh Penguins defeated Los Angeles Kings 4-1 and Philadelphia Flyers edged California Golden Seals 54. Cliff Korea's goal at of the second period was the only one the Hawks were able to reg- ister against the Blues, but it was good for two points for the team. His goal took a little of the gloss off a brilliant performance by rookie goalie Peter McDuffe, who made 34 saves in Us NHL debut. SCOKES ON REBOUND In Oakland, Gary Domhoefer scooped Jean-Guy Gendron's re- bound over goalie Gary Kurt to give the Flyers their victory. Norm Ferguson scored three goals in a losing cause for the downtrodden Seals. Bobby Shee- han got the other one. It was the second time in his NHL car- eer that Ferguson netted three goals in a game. Serge Bernier, Bobby Clarke, Jimmy Johnson and Simon Nolet were Flyers' other marks- men. Veteran Ken Schinkel's goal 56 seconds after the game opened put the Penguins into orbit. Rene Robert made it 2-0 before Billy Flett connected for the Kings. Jean Pronovost and Greg Polis scored insurance goals for Pittsburgh. PITTSBURGH 4 LOS ANOELES 1 First Period 1.
