Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1974 CHUIVB TO 10th ANNUAL COMMONWEALTH GAMES Austria JMI. 11, ZMlwtd Ftb. Prkwd from pw pmon For IntomuUon ind eonuel: ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CiNTHtVILLAOtMALL The Lethbridge Herald LETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lowtr 7lh Shopping Mill Alterta (403) 321-7411 CURRENT STORE HOURS to Mon., Fri, Thuri. 10 Third Section Leth bridge, Alberta, Wednesday, October 24, 1973 Pages 23-34 Graham Kelly When management makes a coaching change, it is usually hoped that a new spirit of determination will take hold of players and propel them to greater heights of achieve- ment than had previously been the case. I am sure that Calgary general manager Roger Lehew had that in mind when he fired Jim Duncan and replaced him with offensive coach Jim Wood. However, the Stampeder players have shown that they play no favorites. They are quite capable, thank you, of losing for one Jim as another. When Saskatchewan shellacked the hapless foothills club 34-7, it was obvious that nothing had really changed. Nobody connected with the Stampeder Football Club ex- pected a sudden reversal of form. When you get right down to it the Cowboys switched horses in the middle of the stream to pacify countless fans who were stay- ing away in droves from the friendly confines of beautiful McMahon Stadium. I suppose you could argue that with three games remaining Calgary hoped that a change in coaches would inspire the ballplayers to break out of their slump and sew up the third and final play-off spot. The fact that the upcoming contest really means nothing to Edmonton doesn't help the situation. Edmonton and Saskatchewan will settle first place when they meet on the last day of the regular season. However, Calgary's play-off hopes are still very much alive If they can beat Ed- monton or B.C. they should make it home in third Neither the Lions or the Blue Bombers seem to be able to get it together and nudge Calgary factor 'that should heighten interest in the Stampeders' final home game. But the fact of the matter is that the people of Calgary have become com- pletely disenchanted with B.C. and Winnipeg have both suffered key injuries this season, but so have the Stampeders B.C and Win- nipeg have occasionally thrown games away through pretty stupid football. So has Calgary. I think the difference in fan reaction comes down to the efforts undertaken by the various clubs to come up with a winning formula. Coach Eagle Keys has tried to bring new people in and improve his club. Jim Spavital has run through several backfields to come up with a winning com- bination. What galls Calgarians is the determina- tion of coaches and manage- ment to live and die with the pass. It is a case of mostly dy- ing with no indication of change in the future. In other words, Calgary fans are fed- up with the inability of the Stampeder organization to find good running backs. Jf Lehew and the directors hope to win back the support and money of Calgary fans, they must change their style and build a team with a diversified offense. Failure to get a ground game for 1974 will result in the dismissal of Roger Lehew and his director of player personnel, George Hansen. Since the prospect of Don't hold your breath. Rogers Lehew is a smart enough football man to know that his team requires radical surgery to cure what ails it. This is unlikely to happen this year. The real reason Duncan was canned late in the season was those empty seats, costing the Stampeders somewhere in the neighborhood of Hopefully, with a new coach the fans would rush to buy tickets to see if a change would bring about better results. A full stadium would help to ease the pain of a los- ing season to some small ex- tent at least. Unfortunately for Mr. Lehew and the Board of Directors, Saskatchewan threw a moneky wrench into the plans. The disaster at Taylor Field has effectively destroyed any real hope for a full house this Saturday night when Edmonton is in town If Calgary had lost by a whisker, things would have been different. People want to see a good contest. In a tight race for a play-off spot, you have all the ingredients for a sellout. But Calgary has per- formed in disgraceful fashion, not only losing but getting bombed out of the park. their heroes and won't invest money to see them lose. And lose they will. Ironically, the fans of B.C. and Winnipeg have not deserted their favorites in such rapid fashion, B.C. has taken a turn for the worse at the gate, but the Red River dwellers keep filling Winnipeg Stadium in hope that the Big Blue will finally come through. It is probably true that the fans on the West Coast are more conditioned to having a losing football team, and that any sign of life is eagerly cheered and nurtured. With poorer records than Calgary, why the difference in public reaction? Calgary's winning another game are dim, Winnipeg and B.C. have the field much to themselves. Although the Bombers are improved, they were up to their old tricks against Montreal. The Bombers have been plagued all season by turn-overs. They coughed up the ball to the grateful Als time after time en route to losing 34-7. B.C. on the other hand tied the Eskimos, thus inching closer to third spot. The Lions have been playing a tighter brand of ball lately, getting a better performance from their front four and defensive backfield. The schedule still favors the Leos with remaining games against Calgary and Win- nipeg. Winnipeg has to close out the season against Toron- to. This Sunday B.C. is at Win- nipeg. They must win that game in order to keep their hopes alive. A loss would mean elimination from playoff contention. Winnipeg could lose to B.C. but still make it by beating Toronto while Calgary loses. Past per- formance would indicate that Don Jonas should have a field day against the B.C. defense with the Bomber line stopping the Lion running attack cold. But I don't see it that way. Team Canada works out in Florida Four Lakers invited to camp By FAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor There was plenty of good news out of Regina Tuesday concerning Canada's baseball team that will compete in the world championships in Nicaragua in November. A total of 28 players have been invited to training camp for the team and 20 will re- main with Team Canada for the event. Of the 28 players, four toiled with the Lethbridge Lakers of the Alberta Major Baseball League. Included in the list of players who will travel to Daytona Beach, Fla., for camp are infielders Marty Maxwell and Bob Brown, out- fielder Wayne Commodore and pitcher-outfielder Rod Taylor. The news of the four players more than pleased Laker club president Reno Lizzi. ROD TAYLOR WAYNE COMMODORE BOB BROWN JOSE NEXT FOE SANTE FE, Argentina (CP) Carlos Monzon, world middleweight boxing cham- pion, said Monday he would receive for defending his title Dec. 8 in Paris against welterweight cham- pion Jose Napoles of Mexico.

The Lakers, if memories need joggling, won the Alberta senior title and represented the province in the Canadian finals. Com- mittee room depletions and other unforseeable circum- stances sent the Lakers east shorthanded. However, the locals more than gave an ex- cellent showing of their talents and local officials, despite the fact snow clouds are on the horizon, are looking to the 1974 season with greater anticipation. "Mind you, we won't have Ron Raylor back as manager, as much as we would like added Lizzi. Taylor, the former major- league star from Toronto, via the San Diego Padres, gave Laker supporters the best brand of baseball they have seen in years. Both Marty and Rod are local products while Com- modore came west from North Battleford three years ago and Brown played his first year with the Lakers after a number of successful seasons in Saskatoon. "Wouldn't it be something if all four made the team? sparkled Lizzi. It would in- deed be a feather in the Lakers' cap. Marty Maxwell, one of three brothers who toiled with the club over the summer, has a solid crack at making the club. Marty knew earlier he would be invited and is looking forward to the chance to represent Canada. "I can take some Florida weather before the snow he said But what he didn't say was he won't be here when the white stuff begins to fall anyway. Should he make the club and head for Nicaragua it would be off to Washington State the first of the year. "It will be he added. "I will get out of shovelling sidewalks another winter. He spent last winter in the warm climates of California The players will attend a week-long training camp at the Montreal Expos' training sight at Daytona Beach, Fla., starting Nov 4. Team Canada will leave for Nicaragua Nov. 12, with the 16-country cham- pionship tournament schedul- ed to start Nov 14 Eight of the 28 players represented Canada in the Continental Cup tournament last month in Italy in which Canada placed third with a 4-3 record. The eight are outfielder Doug Simon of Regina. catcher Brian Cox of Saint John, N.B., infielder Wayne Martin of New Westminster, and pitchers Fred Card well, formerly of Regina and now living in Inmsfail; Mike Findlayson of Victoria. Les Ohrn of Legal, Alta., Phil Lepage of Frederiction and Taylor. Others who will attend the camp at Daytona Beach are: Pitchers Wayne Pusch of Swift Current, Bruce Klein of Kitchener, Doug Landerith of London, Rick Mosher, Greg Lindsay and Dick Hazel of Vancouver and Brian Hamagami of Christian Lake. BC. Catchers Syd Sharp of Surrey, B.C., and Mike Tehan of Waterlook, Ont. Outfielders Dale Geis of Beulah, Man Brian Olsen of Halifax, Bill Daley of Chatham. N.B.. and Gary Picone of Trail, B.C. Infielders Ted Springamatic of Surrey. B.C John Osborne of Toronto, David Grass of Victoria, and Jim Pilham of Halifax. Andrew Pratte of Montreal will be back as manager of Team Canada as will coach Wayne Norton of Port Moody, B.C. Dr. Robert Vendittoli of Montreal will again be the team's trainer Pielak said the world cham- pionship team will be stronger than the team that competed in Italy. "We have strengthened in a number of positions, par- ticularly in the outfield and in pitching, and after our show- ing in Italy we stand an ex- cellent chance of winning the world championship." Canucks douse Atlanta flame with shutout Leafs just not ready to fall yet By RON SUDLOW Canadian Press Writer It may be late October but the Maple Leafs aren't falling yet. The Leafs, who finished fifth in the National Hockey League's Division last season, are still in first place after getting there with a victory over New York Rangers Saturday night in Toronto. Tuesday night they scrambled to a 2-2 tie with winless Min- nesota North Stars while Boston Bruins were beaten 3-2 by St. Louis Blues to remain a point back in a second-place tie with Buffalo Sabres In Vancouver, the Canucks crept into a fifth-place tie with Montreal Canadiens by dousing Atlanta Flames 3-0 as Andre Boudrias scored twice. In Toronto, rookie defen- ceman Bob Neely's blueline blast was deflected past North Star goalie Cesare Maniago with remaining to allow the rookie-laden Leafs to salvage the tie. The shot ticked the stick of North Star defenceman Den- nis O'Brien and went into the net just under the crossbar, ruining a sensational night in goal for Maniago who handed 38 shots The goal also removed a lit- tle bit of the tension of cutting teeth in the NHL for Neely, who gave away the winning goal Sunday night in Buffalo to the Sabres' Gilbert Perreault. At St Louis, all Wayne Mer- rick wanted to do was keep Bruins' Phil Esposito off the scoresheet. He held Esposito to a near-standstill and scored the winning goal with just over four minutes left A near-standstill means that Esposito only got assists on TORONTO 2, MINNESOTA 2 First Period Minnesota.

Boudrias gave Gary Smith the only goal he needed in the second period and then added his third goal midway through the final 20 minutes Herald- Sports Chicago lands franchise CHICAGO (AP) The new- lyformed World Football League awarded a franchise to Chicago Tuesday with a pledge by the new owner to gamble million or million on its success.
