Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LFTHBRIDGE HERALD J.turdoy, Otlolrtr 24, 1970 Buffalo Bounces Wings, Vancouver Ties Blues Sabres And Canucks Share Fourth Place By IAN' Canadian Press Slaff Writer Punch Imlach's a firm be- liever in positive thinking. He practises it. Before the season started, the loquacious leader of Buffalo Sabres was already celebrating a playoff spot for his expansion- ist misfits in the National Hockey League's established East Division. He rebuked those who were snide enough to remark that Imlach was probably talking through one of his celebrated fedoras. The 11-year veteran of MIL coaching ranks with Toronto Maple Leafs, winner of four Stanley Cups, shot back with statistics, rolling out names of nearly 200 prospects, most of whom had been scouted by at least two Sabre scouls. "We'll be there to be remarked Imlach to any who would listen. Seven games don't make a season, but the Sabres now share fourth place in the divi- sion with another newcomer to the NHL this year, Vancouver Canucks. The Sabres and Canucks reached their lofty positions Fri- day night, Buffalo tripping De- troit Red Wings 4-3 while the Canucks battled St. Louis Blues, last year's West Division champs, to a 1-1 lie. In the only other game, Pitts- burgh Penguins emerged from the winless ranks with a 3-1 vic- tory over California, leaving the Golden Seals the only team without a win. NHL Has He Retained Condition, Speed? Ali Still Oozes Confidence ATLANTA (AP) There is the question of whether Muham- mad Ali has retained the speed and condition he had when he ruled the boxing world. But, there is no doubt he still has his confidence and voice. "People in Moscow want to know about me and hear what I got to said the deposed heavyweight champion of the world two days before his scheduled 15-round bout with Jerry Quarry. The fight at the At- lanta Municipal Auditorium will be All's first since stripped of his title after being convicted in 1967 of refusing induction into the U.S. Army. And, although Ali returns to Hie ring wars Monday night and is favored (o beat tough Jerry Quarry in their Atlanta battle.

Al Woodall starts in place of the injured Namath. Los Angeles and Minnesota, iwo defensive giants, have iden- tical 4-1 records. the sport's governing bodies recognize Joe Frazier as cham- pion, there are some observers who feel Monday's fight is the first real title fight in more than three years. One of those is Quarry, who lost to Frazier by a seven-rouix knockout. "He's (Ali) never los the title in the saw Quarry. "I'm the retired champ; Joe Frazier's the active, recognizec said Ali, who hasn' fought since he knocked ou Zora Folley in seven rounds March 22, 1967. The trouble with the the conviction is still being ap- dimmed Ali's popu larily, and the man who was an Olympic champion under the name of Cassius Clay is we] aware of this. "Sure, some people gonna look to see me get lit said. But the long layoff for Ali, the fact that Quarry is three years younger and is tough, has no kept Ali from being rated a heavy favorite. Early La Vegas odds had Ah' on top at 3V4 to 1 but there did not seem lo be much gambling interest. Ah' is expected to go into the fight at p.m. MST, weigh ing between 205 and 210 pounds Quarry probably will weigl about 196. They might want lo hear about Ali in Moscow, but there has been some reluctance lo pay lo see him in (lie Mu nicipal Auditorium.. The tickets are scaled from to ant there still are some to be sold. But the live gate revenue is just a drop in the bucket com- pared lo what the promoters ex. pect to gain from the closed cir- cuit television of the fight. There are closed cir- cuit television seats available in the United States, and the fight also will be seen on closed cir- cuit in Canada, Europe, Asia and South America. Clay is guaranteed against 4254 per cent of the an- cillary rights. Quarry's guaran- ;ee is against 22V4 per cent. Robertson Dies 111 Car Accident HOUGHTON, S.D.

JOINS MID WEST MOBILE HOMES SALES STAFF Cougars Click In Final Game By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer Catholic Central Cougars and LCI Rams cleaned up their league business before 800 fans Friday .night at Henderson Park, and next Friday they'll buckle down to the serious busi- ness of determining the 1970 champion of the Southern Al- berta High School Football League. Cougars, the defending cham- pions, scored an 11-3 victory in the final league game of the season with the two teams now directing all their attention to- wards the one-game showdown next Friday for the champion- ship. By virtue of last night's win, the Cougars finished in first place with, three wins and one loss for six points. The Rams wound up tied in points with Winston Churchill three each, but get the nod to face tha Cougars in the cham- pionship final because they tied and defeated the Bulldogs in two league meetings. In last night's encounter, John Kostiuk scored the only touchdown in the game along with a 25 yard field goal for the Cougars. John Dudas was the other point getter for the Cou- gars as he converted Kostiuk's major and booted one into the Hams end zone for a single point. Norbert Dombrowsky man- tged the only points for the Rams as he was good on a 30- yard field goal attempt. The Rams started off quick- ly but couldn't hang onto the momentum. After receiving the kick-off, the Rams' offensive unit carried the play until they were forced to try a field goal. After the successful field goal, by Dombrowsky the Rams used a strixig defensive alignment to halt the powerful Cougar of- fence. They carried the play into the second quarter, but only to ses their efforts go down the drain. The Cougars marched some 65 yards in seven plays to pick up the lone major score. Kos- tiuk capped the attack with an end swesp covering 20 yards for the six points. Dudas converted the touch- down and the Cougars held a 7-3, edge. Near the end of the first half Dudas attempted a field goal, but was off the mark and watched his ball drop far into the Rams' end zone. The Rams conceded the single point. The only other points scored in the game cams in the tail end of the third quarter when Kostiuk connected for a 30-yard field goal. There was no scor- ing in the final quarter and the Cougars carried home the league title for their second consecutive year. That paves the way for next Friday's title tilt.
