Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, octooer zg, LETHBRIPGE Fighting Saints remain unbeaten Canucks trip up tough Flyers Canadian Press Philadelphia Flyers felt bad, but Dave Schultz felt even worse. The Flyers lost a hockey game, something every Na- tional Hockey League team can expect to do at least a few times a season, but Schultz lost a fight, something which rarely happens. Vancouver Canucks, playing on their home ice, did the dir- ty deed to the Flyers, edging them 2-1 in the sole NHL game Friday night. Canucks richly deserved the victory. They outhustled the Flyers, matched them in hit- ting, outshot them 36-32 and even managed to outclass them in the fisticuffs department, something few NHL teams can claim. It was a distinct reversal of form, for the Canucks, who were not only thrashed on the Scoreboard in five of the six Lion's hopes rest on Douglas It's up to the Mad Bomber Canadian Press British Columbia Lions of the Western Football Conference are pinning their waning playoff hopes on the Mad Bomber Cronin's job in jeopardy NEW YORK Cronin is expected to step down as American League president at a meeting of team owners next Tuesday in Chicago, with general manager Lee MacPhail of New York Yankees to be nam- ed as his successor. Cronin, 67, still has two years to go in his term as president, but will fulfil the commitment as chairman of the board of the American League. MacPhail will gradually assume Cronin's duties over the two-year period. When asked whether he planned to step down at the league meeting, Cronin said Friday: "I don't know if it's up or down." Then he added: "We haven't come to any conclusion. When they extend- ed my contract through 1975. it was with the understanding that I would give up the job when they found a qualified successor. Nobody's been selected yet." MacPhail said the main topic of discussion at the league meeting was expected to be the league constitution, and whether or not it should be restructured. "That one has been going around for a long time." said MacPhail when asked if he would be replacing Cronin. "If and when the job is open and if it were to be offered to me, I would certainly have to con- sider it." MacPhail has said he's happy with the Yankees, but the restructuring of the New York front office might have made the American League presidency look more appealing. When CBS owned the Yan- kees, MacPhail had a free rein in the baseball operations under Mike Burke. But when a group headed by George Steinbrenner bought the club, Gabe Paul was brought in as president, changing MacPhail's status with the club. Cronin. voted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 1956, became American League president in 1959. Since then the league has; expanded from eight to 12 teams, split into two divisions: and adopted the designated hitter rule. The Mad Bomber isn't a grenade-waving maniac. He's second-string quarterback Karl Douglas, a WFC rookie given to throwing long at every opportunity. Douglas will be at quarter- back Saturday when the Lions travel to Edmonton to take on the WFC-leading Eskimos and everyone in the park knows what to look foot- balls, lots of them. Douglas doesn't have much Shoot there The world-famous Harlem Clowns, seen here helping a young hoop star, will entertain Mag rath and district basketball fans next Thursday, Oct. 25 at the Mag rath High School at eight o'clock. It was also an- nounced that the annual Magrath High School in- vitational tournament has been set for Nov. 16 and 17 pitting the top eight clubs in southern Alberta together. Atkins dropped BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Fred Atkins is out as physical training instructor for Buffalo Sabres and coach Joe Crozier has assumed those duties for the National Hockey League team. A disagreement on salary MINI MARKET Across from St. Michael's Hospital OPEN 11 A.M. T011 P.M. We carry a full line of Schweppes Mixes and Confectionery Goods was given Friday as the reason for Atkins' departure. His physical training sessions were credited by Sabres' of- ficials for helping to get the club off to a fine start last season. Atkins. a former professional wrestler, told a reporter from his home in nearby Crystal Beach.. Onf... "The price is not right. 1 was told the club was having an economy drive and I was in it." "He priced himself out of business." said Sabres' general manager Punch Imlach. Atkins worked with the Sa- ores last season. His job this year ended when the club left training camp. choice. The B.C. backfield, once touted as the best on the league, has been ravaged by injuries. Halfback Monroe Eley is on the 30-day injured reserve list and fullback Johnny Musso has an injured knee which has slowed him to a crawl. Lou Harris, the slot- back, isn't injured, unless you count a recently-acquired tendency to cough up the foot- ball. Harris, a promising runner, carried only four times last Saturday as the Eskimos beat the Lions 27-13 and fumbled twice. Douglas is starting because regular quarterback Don Moorhead has a stubborn ankle injury. "Don hasn't worked out all week." said B.C. coach Eagle Keys. "I have no idea how his ankle will be by the time we get to Edmonton, but right now I'll have to say Douglas will start." HAVE WON 3 That's only because Calgary Stampeders. in third place, and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, in fourth, are almost as inept as the Lions. The Stampeders have a three-point lead on the Lions and are one point ahead of the Bombers. The Stampeders also play on the weekend, visiting Sas- katchewan Roughriders for their first game under new head coach Jim Wood. Wood replaced Jim Duncan, who was fired Monday, and has an unenviable task in try- ing to regroup his shattered forces against the Roughriders. who are one point behind the Eskimos in the race for first place in the WFC. One point in Wood's favor is that many of his players have recovered frcrn injuries. Mid- dle linebacker Steve Brown will return to his post, freeing Roger Goree to return to cor- ner linebacker. Fred James is fit again at defensive tackle, meaning the Calgary defence, woeful in the Stamps' last several starts, should be better. Oddly, the Stampeders, de- spite their lack of success gen- erally, have had good success with the Roughriders this sea- son, beating them in the first two games. The Lions have just three wins and a tie in 13 games this season, but still find themselves with a slim chance to make the playoffs. HE'S WORRIED And Saskatchewan coach John Payne said he's worried. "I can't say for sure what it is." Payne said, looking over his team's recent record of three losses in its last four games. "Maybe we peaked too early. But things have to get better in all areas." Quarterback Ron Lancaster said the Roughriders "can't afford to lose another game if we want to finish first." The Eskimos, their com- petition, are confident going into their game with the Lions. Edmonton coach Ray Jauch said he's looking for a better game from the Lions in this contest, but admits that B.C. will have to play much better to win.

LETHBRIDGE COUNTRY CLUB Invites members and their guests Final Dance of the Season Saturday, October 20th 9 p.m. Music "Oddfellows" games between the two teams last season, but were also physically manhandled. But the Canucks added some size this season and it showed as they matched the Flyers in checking. Brian McSheffrey and Jocelyn Guevremont scored second-period goals as the Canucks overcame a 1-0 first- period lead the Flyers had gained on the strength of Ross Lonsberry's goal. But the biggest cheers of the night were reserved for Jerry (King Kong) Korab. acquired by the Canucks in the off sea- son from Chicago Black Hawks. Korab took on Schultz. head bouncer of the Philadelphia mad squad, and thrashed the Philadelphia player soundly in a third-period fight. The fans were excited and so were the Canucks. Even Richard Lemieux. more a skater than a fighter, caught the enthusiasm and took on Orest Kindrachuk in another battle in the final period and held the Philadelphia rookie to a draw. Heavy weekend action has 11 games in the two days, six of them tonight.

Minnesota Fighting Saints didn't waste any time during the off-season in a drive to im- prove their World Hockey Association team. After all, the club just made the playoffs in 1972-73 after defeating Edmonton Oilers 4-2 in a sudden-death game for the fourth position. With the addition this year of Mike Walton.

They extended their unde- feated wins and a a 1-0 triumph over New England Whalers in one of two games Friday night.

BEFORE I MARRIED 'iM 'D 6E '16 AND TRUSTIN' ACCEPT ANY Can Buffalo Bills justify 4-1 record? ASSOCIATED PRESS Are Buffalo Bills for real? Sunday's clash against the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins at Miami should give some indication as to whether the surprising Bills are as good as their 4-1 record would indicate. It's been seven years since the Bills have been involved in a battle for first place, but that's what's at stake Sunday, against Miami, also 4-1 and tied with Buffalo for the lead in the American Conference's Eastern Division. Buffalo's resurgence has been paced by the remarkable O.J. Simpson, who has run for 100 yards or more in each of his last seven games, a National Football League record. Simpson will be going for his sixth consecutive 100- yards-plus game of the season, which would tie another league record. Simpson rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 31-13 victory over Baltimore Colts bringing his season total to 813 yards in 124 carries. He is 24 yards ahead of the pace set by Jim Brown of Cleveland Browns in 1963, when Brown established the NFL season rushing record of 1.863 yards. RAMS AT HOME In other NFL games Sun- day.

Monday's encounter has Oakland Raiders plays at Denver Broncos. Los Angeles, one of the league's two remaining un- beaten teams under new head coach Chuck Knox, has the league's No. 1 offence and No. 3 defence, statistically. The Packers have been hav- ing quarterback troubles, with neither Jim Del Gaizo nor Scott Hunter establishing himself as No. 1. approached Turcotte LOS ANGELES (AP) Maury Wills said Friday the idea of being considered as the next manager of Oakland Athletics was flattering, but he said he had not been approached for the job. "I'm aware of the fact that some papers have mentioned the former Los Angeles Dodgers captain and shortstop said. "But there has been no such thing." Oakland manager Dick Williams is reported to have told his players that after the World Series against New York's Mets. he was quitting. There were also published reports that Sherman Lollar will take over as Oakland manager when Williams resigns. Lollar managed Tucson of (lie Pacific Coast League. Oakland's top farm club, last year. "I think it's very flattering but, heck. I'm so pleased with what I'm doing with Wills said of his job as an analyst on baseball Game-of- thc-VVeek telecasts.

Turcotte was riding Awaited Man. a four-year-old grey gelding, in the claiming race for three-year- olds and up. He had the horse on the lead when the animal suddenly stumbled on the turn into the stretch of the six- furlong race. As the horse went down. Turcotte was thrown forward. The jockey landed hard on the track and did a complete somersault. The Redskins. 4-1. will be seeking to avenge that one loss, a 34-27 upset at the hands of St. Louis. The Oilers make their debut under Sid Gillman, who took over as coach Mon- day in place of Bill Peterson. Cincinnati, which upset Pittsburgh last week, has the league's No. 2 ground gainer in Essex Johnson against the Chiefs while rookie Bill Demory who completed just one pass in the Jets' 9-7 vic- tory over New England last week, will have to do con- siderably better against the rugged Steelers. Atlanta finally got untrack- ed with a 45-6 romp over Chicago, with Bob Lee com- pleting 11 of 13 pass attempts Toros are tired THE CANADIAN PRESS If New England Whalers and Toronto Toros appear to be skating in low gear in their World Hockey Association game at Toronto Sunday, a look at the schedule could ex- plain why. The Toros' home stand Sun- day comes after a week in which they played four games, including three on the road. The Whalers also will be coming off a four-game week, including two road games. The Toros play their third road game of the week tonight when they face the Crusaders in Cleveland. In other games tonight, New York Golden Blades visit Que- bec Nordiques and Chicago Cougars face the Blazers in Vancouver. Chicago is at Edmonton against the Oilers, Minnesota Fighting Saints visit Winnipeg Jets, Cleveland meets the Aeros at Houston. Quebec is at New York and Los Angeles Sharks are at Vancouver in other Sunday matches. And then the Toros' pack up for another three-game road trip through Edmonton, Van- couver and Winnipeg. Not un- til after their Oct. 28 home game against Chicago can they look forward to a five- day rest period. Toros' coach Billy Harris declined to use road weariness as an excuse for the team's loss to the Nordiques in Quebec Thursday, but a week from now it may no longer be just an excuse.

It was set originally by Ernie Nevers. who in 1929 (or (he Cardinals, scored six TD's in one game Dub Jones of Ihe Browns tied the record when he scored 6 TD's in a game in 1951.
