Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 23, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Esposito also on the beam Sizzling start for Mahovlich By THE CANADIAN PRESS The National Hockey League season is young but veteran Frank Mahovlich is taking dead aim at a record that some NHL observers thought might stand for a long time. The big left winger fired three goals Friday night as Montreal Canadiens blanked Vancouver Canucks 6-0, increasing his goal-total in six games to nine. It's a long way off but If Mahovlich manages to keep up his torrid scoring paice, the NHL record of 76 goals in one season set by Boston Bruins Phil Esposito last year could be fair game. Meanwhile, Esposito showed he hasn't lost his touch for col- lecting points by picking up one goal and three assists as the Bruins downed California Golden Seals 5-1 Friday. In the only other game, Detroit Red Wings defeated Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2. Mahovlich, who came to Montreal from Detroit in a late-season trade last year, notched 49 goals with the Bed Stampeders hope to nail down first place tonight By THE CANADIAN PRESS Everything will hinge on everything else in Western Football Conference action during the weekend. The outcome of a clash between Edmonton Eskimos and the Stampeders in Calgary Saturday night will affect the quality of play in Regina Sunday when British Columbia Lions tangle with Saskatchewan Roughriders. It's the same story in Montreal, where Winnipeg Blue Bombers face the Al-ouettes a few hours before the Lions-Riders clash. "A Calgary win would kill our chance of taking first place," said Saskatchewan head coach Dave Skrien, "and the outcome of that game will have a big bearing on how we play our game." "It'll be a matter of starting quarterback Ron Lancaster or using some of our second stringers. Monroe walks out on Bullet squad By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Shortly before Baltimore Bullets played New York Knickerbockers in a National Basketball Association contest Friday night, veteran guards Earl (The Pearl) Monroe and Archie Clark walked off the teaim. Then the Rnicks walked all over the Bullets. Monroe bad expressed unhap-piness at playing in Baltimore and team officials have been trying to trade the player, who ts in the final year of a three-year pact. dark had been acquired from Philadelphia '76ers earlier this week and, together with Monroe, bad participated in Thursday's workout. Coach Gene Shue reported neither player had offered any indication during practice that they would abandon the team. Both were suspended by the Bullets without pay. The Bullets tossed together a makeshift starting lineup and FOR FAMILY PLANNING AND PREVENTION OF DISEASE ASK YOUR DRUGSTORE FOR IMMUN PERFECT IMPORTERS TRADING POST P.O.

Rodeo awards event tonight The Taber Civic Centre will be the scene tonight of the awards banquet for the Southern Alberta Rodeo Circuit. Trophy saddles will be presented to the winner of each event while the runner-up will receive a cheque for $125. Master of Ceremonies for the affair will be veteran rodeo announcer Warren Cooper.

But should Edmonton, which is out of the playoffs, upset the Stampeders, the Roughriders "will let out all the stops." A victory by the Blue Bombers in Montreal would make it necessary for B.C. to beat Saskatchewan and then Calgary a week later. A Winnipeg loss would mean that the Lions would need just one victory to collar the third and last playoff position. As for the Eskimos, downgraded to spoiler status, coach Ray Jauch said: "I'd be kidding if I said it wasn't tough for a team to get ready for a game like this. "Calgary has to win and we know they are going to come out and try to beat the heck out of us. "But then again we should be loose and things might really go right for us." The Eskimos have won their last three games. WILL TEST QUARTERBACK Jauch said the Eskimos will benefit in that new quarterback Bruce Lemma-man will get a severe test. Lemmerman, who has shown promise in his five games with Edmonton, will get his toughest test against the Stampeder defence, the best in Canada. "After Calgary we play Saskatchewan, so we'll see what he can do against the two top teams in the West. "So far he has looked good under the rush. He gets rid of the ball quickly and we haven't had many losses." The Eskimos plan no roster changes for the game, which starts at 8 p.m. MST and will be televised on the CTV western network. In Calgary, coach Jim Duncan said veteran quarterback Jerry Keeling will probably see action after missing four games with a shoulder separation. Guard John Atamian is a doubtful starter with a pulled leg muscle, while halfback Jesse Mims, defensive tackle John Helton and linebackers Wayne Harris, Craig Koinzan and Jim Furlong will be hampered by various limb ailments. Saskatchewan fullback George Reed will be chasing his third record. He needs 29 yards to match Johnny Bright's Canadian Football League career rushing mark of 10,909 yards. Reed set records for career carries and career touchdowns ea-lier in the season. Wings in 1968-69, his best season. "I like it here," the Big M said of Montreal. "It's a good City with a good atmosphere for hockey and a darned good hockey team. There's a good spirit on Camadiens." Mahovlich scored three consecutive goals after Marc Tardif gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead. Ken Dryden picked up his first shutout this year, stopping 28 shots. Dune Wilson faced 31 Montreal drives. Esposito, who also had 76 assists last season for a record 152 pointe, got his fifth goal this season after the Bruins built up a 2-1 first-period lead at Oakland. Esposito increased his league-leading point-total to 14, two more than Rod Gilbert of New York Rangers and three more than Mahovlich. STACKHOUSE HELPS At Detroit, defenceman Ron Stackhouse, acquired from California Thursday night in exchange for Tom Webster, scored one goal and set up two others as the Wings gained their second win this season. Webster, Detroit's top scorer last season with 30 goals and 37 assists, get a chance to play against his team-mates Sunday when the Seals visit Detroit. In tonight's contests, the Canadiens meet the Kings at Los Angeles, Philadelphia Flyers invade Toronto, the Rangers play the Blues at St. Louis, Minnesota North Stars play host to Buffalo Sabres and Chicago Black Hawks tangle with the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

Marcel Dionne (5), watch the puck sail past Toronto The Red Wings were victorious 5-2. _ Action aplenty in National League Redskins and Chiefs in big one By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The National Football League gets under way a few hours early this weekend but a lot of fans will still be holding their breath until Monday night. In the NFL's only regular season Saturday night clash, Buffalo Bills invade San Diego tonight, looking for their first victory of the year. But the big bashes in this sixth weekend of action send Washington's undefeated Redskins against Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday's top attraction, and on Monday night, Minnesota's Vikings are host to Baltimore Colts in what looks as a murderous defensive grind. Elsewhere Sunday, it's Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphis at New York Jets, New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers at Los Angeles Rams, Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns, San Francisco '49ers at St. Louis Cardinals, New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots at Dallas Cowboys, and Houston Oilers at Pittsburgh Steelers. SONNY WHO? Billy Kilmer has made a lot of people all but forget about Sonny Jurgenseu. Now the Redskins' quarterback, along with Clarley Harraway, Larry Brown, Roy Jefferson and a solid defensive unit, goes for victory No. 6. But they'll be up against another tight defensive squad in the Chiefs who, with Len Dawson at the helm, are once again dueling with Oakland in their annual scrap for leadership in the AFC West. The Colts and Vikings are 1-2 in begrudging opponents the fewest points in the league. Both are like cement walls when it comes to yielding yardage on the ground. The Colts hold a slim half-game lead over Miami in the AFC East while Minnesota is tied with Detroit for first in the NFC's Central Division. The Chargers haven't won since their opening game upset against Kansas City. The Bills haven't won at all. But their quarterback, Dennis Shaw, will have some extra incentive as he returns for the first time to the scene of his collegiate brilliance with San Diego State. The Lions will be without cor-nerback Lem Barney, sidelined by a groin injury. But the Bears will be without a lot more. Injuries force them to go with third string quarterback Bobby Douglas and reserve running back Don Shy in place of Gale Say-ers. QUARTERBACK OUT Quarterback Virgil Carter is still out for the Bengals but Daryle Lamonica who came back from an injury to direct the Raiders to a second half comeback victory against Philadelphia, will start this time. Eldridge Dickey, however, may replace Rod Sherman at wide receiver for Oakland. Bob Griese will be aiming his passes for Paul Warfield and Howard Twilley and Jim Kiick and Larry Csonka will be grinding out the yardage as the Dolphins seek to avenge their loss to the Jets, the only one they've suffered this year. Bob Davis goes again for New York at quarterback after his successful debut a week ago against Buffalo. Rick Arlington is questiona-, ble, so Pete Liske may have to start at quarterback for the winless Eagles, who, for the first time in six games, are facing a team other than a 1970 divisional winner in the Giants. The Rams return home looking for their fourth straight victory that would keep them atop the NFC West. Green Bay, meanwhile, is at the bottom of the Central Division, but the Packers have whipped Los Angeles in their last three meetings. The Broncos finally won a game last week after 11 setbacks and two ties. But now they face the solid AFC Central leaders in the Browns, who have an injury-free squad. Free safety Larry Wilson, with a hip injury, is a doubtful starter for the Cardinals and John Brodie will be trying to take advantage of his absence to keep the '49ers within half a game of the Rams-or perhaps vault them over their rivals from Cjuthern California. The Saints are riding high following their upset victory over the Cowboys a week ago while the Falcons are reeling from in- Long hair sparks issue among Eagles PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Philadelphia Eagles' football team went through a sometimes-ragged practice session this week after new head coach Ed Khayat ordered a ban on mustaches, creeping sideburns and shaggy hair. Some of. the players affected by the order were angry, others didn't care, but all had less hair than they had the day before. Linebacker Tim Rossovich, who sacrificed a drooping mustache but allowed his hair to remain fairly shaggy, stormed through the locker room, yanking helmets off their hooks and knocking footballs around. "I hear that Ed Khayat is trying to get Leonard Tose to shave his eyebrows," he said. "Tose, owner of the National Football L e a g u e's Eagles, fired coach Jerry Williams, who had held a similar post with Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, and hired Khayat after the Eagles lost their fourth game. The Eagles still are looking for their first victory. Safety Leroy Keyes was less upset than Rossovich. "It's not a life or death matter with me," said Keyes. . . The football season lasts only a short time and if I want to grow hair, I can do it after the season." However, linebacker Bill Hobbs said he had "never been so teed off." The Eagles' player representative, Ron Porter, said nothing could be done about the hair edict. "If we were winning I'm sure a lot of players would Porter said. "When you're 0-and-5, you don't have much to talk about." Blue named top pitcher DETROIT (AP) - The Free Press reports it has learned Vida Blue has been selected for th 1971 Cy Young award. The newspaper says its poll of the 24 sports writers involved in the balloting revealed Oakland Athletics pitching ace received 93 points to 85 for Detroit Tiger hurler Mickey Lolich. The results of the balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America will not be officially announced until next Wednesday. Phillies land Spokane star PHILADELPHIA (A P) -Philadelphia Phillies sent outfielder Larry Hisle to Los Angeles Dodgers Friday and obtained first baseman-outfielder Tommy Button from Spokane of the Pacific Coast League, a Dodgers' farm team. Hutton, 25, was the PCL's most valuable player and all-star first baseman in 1971 and also led the league in batting with a .352 average. He hit 19 homers and drove in 103 runs. SHOTGUN SHOOTERS Lethbridge Trap Club will be open during the winter months SUNDAYS 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Free instruction upon requestl Club located half mile North and 1 mile West of Lethbridge Airport juries, including a hamstring pull that has forced quarterback Bob Berry to give way to Dick Shiner. The Cowboys meanwhile, will be hungry to rebound from their loss and shellac New England in the grand opening of their new home, Texas Stadium. Running back Woody Campbell is due to return to the lineup for the winless Oilers while the Steelers need a victory to stay within striking distance of the Browns.
