Wood, 35, was named Mon- day to succeed Jim Duncan, released one day after the Bombers, Lions still deadlocked The Bombers and Lions will battle right down to the end of the wire for the 1973 Lethbridge Minor Football League pennant title as they registered overwhelming vic- tories at Henderson Stadium Monday night. Bombers, who crushed the Eskimos 56-0, and the Lions, who walloped St. Mary's Eagles 60-0, remained tied for top spot with their sixth wins in seven starts and each club has only one league game left. The Bombers take on the Stampeders and Lions face the Eskimos for their final league games next Monday Meanwhile the Bombers received a five-touchdown performance from Dominic Santangelo to blast the Eskimos. Earl Ingarfield chipped in with three touchdowns and a convert while Valdy Filpas aided with a lone major. The remaining Bombers' point came on a single point effort. In the second encounter of the evening, Pat McCune galloped for four majors and paced the Lions over the winless Eagles. The Eagles have now given up 316 points in six games and have yet to hit the scoresheet themselves. Besides McCune's touchdowns, Dave Rae, Randy Service, Drew Dzuren, Brad Brown and Kim Tor- nordi also added solo majors. Mark Rowe chipped in with three converts, Reg Areshenko two and Ken Miller one. Stampeders' fourth con- secutive defeat "We still have the same problems we had said Wood, who joined the Stampeders this season after five years as head coach at New Mexico State University. His first chore, he said, is to reorganize the players and "utilize them in a better way." He said there will be few changes, but he wants a more emotional commitment from his players. He is taking over a club that has scored fewer points and given up more points than any other team in the WFC. The Stampeders hold third place, the last playoff spot, by one point over Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and meet the se- cond-place Saskatchewan Roughriders Sunday at Regina Wood tried out with the Stampeders as a two-day end in 1959 but was cut. A native of Tonkawa, Okla., Wood attended Oklahoma State and was named to the coaches' all-America team as an end in 1958. He played in the Senior Bowl and Blue-Gray game after his senior year and turn- ed down an offer from Washington Redskins of the National Football League in order to try out with Calgary. He began coaching with Allen Hancock junior college in California and moved to New Mexico State in 1964 as an assistant coach He was named head coach in 1967 and stayed there until joining Calgary this season. General manager Rogers Lehew said the decision to release Duncan followed a 32- 8 whipping by Ottawa Rough Riders Sunday Wood's appointment will ex- tend only to the end of the sea- son, said Lehew. Wood and Dick Munro, the club's defen- sive coach, will be welcome to apply for the job next season. Duncan, 48, took the Calgary job in May, 1969, shortly after Jerry Williams, now head coach of Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Eastern Conference, jumped to Philadelphia of the NFL. He will remain with the Stampe- ders as a recruiter. "I accept my respon- said Duncan "When there are a lot of empty seats in your ball park you know a change is imminent." He directed Calgary into the playoffs in each of his first three seasons as head coach. The Stampeders lost the Grey Cup final to Montreal Alouettes in 1970 but won in 1971 over Toronto Argonauts Houston releases Peterson HOUSTON (AP) Bill Peterson, who posted a 1-18 record over two seasons, was fired Monday as head coach of the National Football League's Houston Oilers and general manager Sid Gillrnan was named to take charge of the team for the rest of the season. "It was necessary to relieve Bill Peterson of his Gillman said in making the announcement "The reasons are quite obvious. We had a 1- 18 record under Bill. We are in a winning business. There is no excuse for failure." Gillman said the decision was his alone. Peterson was in his second year as coach of the Oilers, who have lost 16 straight regular-season games, in- cluding an 0-5 record this year and a 1-13 mark in 1972, the worst in the NFL Peterson built a reputation as a winning college coach at Florida State and Rice When Peterson was hired by Oiler owner Bud Adams last year, Adams said: "We've hired our last football coach for a long time. We're going to have to get along with 'Pete' because he's going to be on our payroll a long time Second place among the gals went to Miriam Layng of Calgary with a just 24 pins better than third place Kania Traudi of Edmonton. Betty Read, another Calgary bowler, was fourth with Peter Marusin of Edmonton was second to Florio with 11 pins short of the winner. Steve Pedersen of Lethbridge was third at followed by Doug Alexander of Calgary at Miners lose in finals Lethbridge Miners' rugby club completed its most successful season this past weekend. The locals lost a tough 13-4 decision to Calgary Saints in the final of the second division. Calgary scored one touchdown and three penalty goals for their points while the Miners were held to a touchdown by John Gray. It was a tough setback for the Miners. They lost the toss and were faced with a gusty wind the first half and trailed 7-0 at the change. Miners lost the services of starry John Demures and in championship play are not allowed substitution. As a result the locals finished the game shorthanded.
