Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, October 23, 1971 ANDY CAPP Rams earn tie in hard-fought struggle Undefeated season icing on cake for Cougars TOM'S WIFE'S GOT A NICE FIGURE, (DON'T V THINK,PET?� By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "They got their cake and can >at it too." The Catholic Central Cougars completed their 1971 Southern Alberta High School Football League season undefeated and captured the western division title Friday night. "Our primary objective was to win a berth in the championship final, but the undefeated season is the icing on the cake," added Cougars' jubilant coach Dean Dahl. Some 1,200 noisy spectators at Henderson watched the Cougars cart home the Scotia Insurance Management Company trophy, emblematic of the western division championship, after a hard-fought 6-6 stalemate with the LCI Rams. The last time the Cougars had an undefeated season was in 1963 and the championship title has eluded them since 1969. They'll get another crack next Friday night when they host the eastern division champions McCoy Colts. The Cougars were a powerhouse club this season winning six, losing none and earning one tie. Canada may share title Play suspended AUCKLAND (Reuter) - Play in the Commonwealth amateur golf tournament here was abandoned today because of rain and officials said that if the bad weather continues Sunday Canada and Australia will be declared joint winners. This was decided at a special meeting of the organizing committee after continuous rain interrupted play this morning and caused the tournament to be suspended only two hours after the first foursome teed off. Canada and Australia were unbeaten and were playing off this morning for the title. Canadian team sources said they reluctantly accepted the decision to share the title if it rain again Sunday. Team manager Bruce Forbes of Brantford, Ont., said the Canadians had indicated they would be prepared to play Monday if necessary. But Australian manager Eric Lusk said his team would definitely not play Monday as they already had changed their travelling arrangements once. When the halt was called the Canadians were leading in two matches and were all square in the third. Nick Weslock of Burlington, Ont., and Keith Alexander of Calgary were 1 up over Noel Ratcliffe and Peter Bennett at the eighth hole; Stu Hamilton of Brampton, Ont., and Doug Sil-verberg of Calgary were 1 up over Tony Gresham and Kevin Donohoe at the eighth and Gary Cowan of Kitchener, Ont., 1971 United States amateur champion, and Doug Roxburgh of Vancouver were square with Terry Gale and Bill Britten at the 10th. Cowan and Roxburgh took a one-hole lead at the fourth but the Australians squared the match at the eighth. Weslock and Alexander trailed by one hole after the second but drew even at the fourth and then went one up. Hamilton and Silverberg won the first two holes and were three up after the fourth, but Gresham and Donohoe cut the margin by winning the next two holes. REPAIR DISC BOSTON (AP)--Boston Bruins' forward Don Marcotte was operated upon Friday for a repair of a spinal disc which forced him to quit playing last month. Pats triumph in rough one The second-place Rams were a rookie club this year, but under the skillful guidance of Jim Whitelaw they finished with five wins, one loss and a tie. They'll be heard from next year. In last night's encounter the Rams virtually had their backs against the wall. Because of a 33-7 loss to their city rivals in their first meeting of the year, they needed a 27-point victory or better to win the wesern title. A victory simply wouldn't have been enough because in case of a tie in the standings, the points for and against system would have been used to decide the champion. The Cougars drew first blood midway through the first quarter with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Calvin Poirier. Poirier sneaked behind the Rams' secondary defensive unit and pulled in quarterback Fred Hoffarth's pass unmolested to give the Cougars a 6-0 lead. John Dudas' convert attempt was wide. The Cougars held the 6-0 lead until the eight-minute mark of the final quarter when Terry Korth plunged across the two-yard line to even the score. Bob Parkyn helped the Cougars maintain their unbeaten streak as he blocked Terry Poc-za's extra point attempt. In yards gained rushing, John Kostiuk and Ed Krajewski led the way for the Cougars, picking up most of the 177 yards. Kostiuk chewed up 71 yards while Krajewski scrambled for 63. Korth was the big ground-gainer for the Rams with 79 yards. In the penalty department, the Cougars were assessed 75 yards on 10 infractions while the Rams were nailed on seven occasions for 50 yards. Meanwhile in Medicine Hat, the Winston Churchill Bulldogs finished their 1971 season on a losing note by dropping a 30-0 decision to the McCoy Colts. Neil Bozak and Morley Arnot paced the Colts' attack with two touchdowns apiece while Ivan Moser chipped in with one. In the other game staged in the Gas City the cellar-dwelling Crescent Heights Vikings edged the Mohawks 2-1. By THE CANADIAN PRESS A total of 64 penalties were handed out Friday in three games played in the Western Canada Hockey League, 31 of them in a game in Regina which sav the Pats defeat New Westminster Bruins 5-3. Pats, aided by a pair of power-play goals 30 seconds apart in the third period, notched their second win in six starts and were left in a fifth-place tie with Winnipeg Jets in the leagues eastern division. The game was marred by 16 minor penalties, 11 to the Bruins, eight majors, four to each team, three misconducts and four game misconducts. At Vancouver, the Nats rallied with four third-period goals to defeat Medicine Hat Tigers 6-5 before 1,100 fans and in Saskatoon the Blades moved into a tie for first place jn the eastern division with a 4-2 victory over Winnipeg Jets before 2,800 fans. In the Vancouver game a total of 19 minor penalties were handed out, 12 of them to Medicine Hat and in Saskatoon, Winnipeg took eight of the 14 minor penalties. Pat Price, Russ Walker. Dan McCarthy and Ralph Klassen were the Saskatoon marksmen. Winnipeg's goals, both in the first period, were scored by Dave Elliot and Brian Dick. In Vancouver, Pat Russell led the Nats with three goals, Gordie Stewart added two more and Rob Little's single completed the scoring. Stan Weir scored two goals for Medicine Hat with Bill Miller, Leif Jacobsen and Jeff Ablett adding singles. In the final seconds of the second period Alf Cadman, Vancouver coach, requested a check of the Medicine Hat sticks. Tiger coach Jack Shupe asked for the same curvature inspection of the Vancouver sticks and as the teams return' ed for the final period, four Tigers and one Nat were penalized for using illegal sticks. Mike Wanchuk, a rookie, and veteran Scott Smith each scored two goals for Regina with Dennis Sobchuk adding the other goal. Captain Lome Henning scored twice for New Westminster with the third goal going to Les Jackson.

Snaps golf slump Casper leads NAPA, Calif. (AP) - BUly Casper, playing his way out of the most disastrous slump of his career, credited a new set of irons with helping him move into a commanding, three-stroke lead in the $150,000 Kaiser International open golf tournament. "I got them a couple of weeks ago," the 40-year-old Casper said after shooting a seven-un-der-par 65 in Friday's second round, giving him a 36-hole total of 132. "I really don't know what it is, but I'm hitting the ball higher and I'm not hooking it. The shafts are a Little stiffer, but I can't explain it beyond that." Casper, who has failed to win this season for the first time since 1956, held a three-stroke margin over soft-spoken Tommy Aaron, who had a 69 for 135. WINTER WILL SOON BE UPON US!

Ground crew 3ft ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES left out INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER SALES AND SERVICE 304 Stafford Drive, lethbridge Witne 327-3125 PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pitts-burgh Pirates, world champions of baseball, have voted to cut the stadium ground crew out of any World Series money, it has been learned. Most winning clubs share their bonuses from playoffs and World Series with the ground crew. A full share this year for the Pirates will be worth about $20,000. One player, who asked to rein a in unidentified, said the ground crew was left out of the World Series share partly because they supported an umpires' strike before last year's playoffs. Last year, when the Pirates won the Eastern Division title only, they awarded a full share worth $5,913.49 to head grounds-keeper Ed Dunn. He shared it with the 27 other ground aw members. One source close to the club said not all members of the Pirates voted to cut out the ground crew this year and one Pirate starter was reported to have apologized to the crew. Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuho has ordered the players not to discuss how they sliced their shares. He will make public their decision In the next month or so.
