Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, October 27, 1971 HAPPY WINNER Vida Blue, who won 24 gomes for the Oakland Athletics this past season in helping them win their division in the American Baseball League, was named the Cy Young winner today. See story. Consars all set for Friday nig] The undefeated western divi- sion champion Catholic Central! Cougars will be otit in full force as they seek the South- ern Alberta High School Foot- ball championship title Friday night. Gabler back for tryout MONTREAL (CP) Veteran quarterback Wally Gabler was scheduled to arrive here today for a five-day trial with Mont- real Alouettes of the Eastern Football Conference, a club spokesman said. Gabler was cut earlier this season by Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He also played for Toronto Ar- gonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, of the Western Con- ference, in earlier seasons. With the Tieats this year, Ga- bler completed 16 of 38 passes for 237 yards and two touch- downs. He had four of his aeri- als intercepted. Als quarterback Jim Chasey dislocated his left ellMW late in the final quarter Sunday as Montreal dropped a 19-18 deci- sion to the Bombers. The SAHSFL championship cup has eluded the Cougars since 1969, but this is the sea- son they could possibly do the trick. Medicine Hat McCoy Colts the eastern champions will be tabbed as the underdogs in championship final as they suf- fered a 23-0 setback by the Cougars earlier in the season. Bolstered with a veteran club the Cougars earned the western pennant in fine fash- ion, winning six, losing none and tying one. Colts on the other hand pick- ed up four wins and three loses in seven league games this year. They were the only Gas City crew that beat a Leth- bridge team this year, dropping the Winston Churchill Bulldogs 30-0 last weekend. The Cougars will be a healthy club, other than the usual lumps and bruises for the big game Friday. The powerful defensive squad is all set with Randy Royer, Lyle Gallant, Nelson Small Legs, Bob Modrac-jeski Glair Forestall and Peter Sikora ready to go. The veteran offence led by John Kostiuk and Ed Krajew- ski along with quaiterback Fred Hoffarth also seem set. Action will get under way at 8 p.m. at Henderson. Full staff of coaches handles athletic, program at U of L University adopts Pronghorns as new name By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer The University of Lelhbridge has a full slate of coaches for its athletic program and the basketball teams have a new name, the Pronghorns. It was proposed four years ago that the name of the team bo Pronghorns but turned up noses ara! a rash of other more appropriate names caused the University people to shelve the name Pronghorns and adopt Chinooks. "We couldn't come up with an idea for a emblem depicting a said Dr. Gary Bowie, Director of Athletics for the University. "As a result the team is now known as Prong- horns." Tha decision was announced at an informal gathering Mon- day at which time the staff of the University's athletic staff was announced for the coming two semesters. Dr. Bowie, after an absence of three years, will take over the reins of the varsity Prong- horns, a position filled last year by Logan Tail. Dr. Bowie was the coach of the Leth- bridge Junior College Kodiaks when they dominated the Al- berta Junior College basketball scene. He handled the Chinooks in the first year of their exist- ence and then spent three years obtaining his Ph.D. at the University of Utah. The Pronghonis will see their first action Nov. 5 and 6 at Edmonton in the annual Tri- University Classic. The locals will play a two-day, single- knockout tourney with the Uni- versity of Alberta Golden Bears, University of Calgary Dinosaurs and the Univer- sity of Saskatchewan. The gals will once again be under the direction of Wilma Winter, who last year coached them to the Canadian junior championship after missing out in the final game in 19C9. Mrs. Winter and her club from last year will be honored at the Alberta Amateur Awards Day in Calgary this Saturday evening. STRONG TEAM According to the coach she could have as strong a team as last, with four first stringers back. The gals will be in Calgary Nov. 5 and 6 for the Calgary Women's Invitational tourney. Signings for both Pronghorn teams will be announced in the next two weeks as the teams prepare for the Western Can- ada Intercollegiate Athletic As- sociation season. This year the locals will com- pete only with teams in Alberta and British Columbia during conference action. Only the two top teams will see teams from Manitoba and Saskatchewan and that won't be until playoff time. Thie year's split conference is more or less a trial period with two distinct conferences being named nsxt year, in all probability, according to Bowie. In the meantime the Prong- horns have made plans for an exhibition doubleheader this weekend. Friday night they meet the Cardston Merchants with Tim Tollestrup leading the way for the visitors. Tolleslrup, it wiU be remembered led the Chi- nooks last year. Game time is set for eight o'clock at the Civic Centre. Saturday night at the Pronghorns host Leth- bridge Doug's. While basketball takes most of the University spotlight vol- leyball is fast coming into its own. Dr. Jim Day, head of the De- partment of Physical Educa- tion at the University of Leth- bridge, coaches the volleyball team and will give local sup- porters their first and possibly only look at the team Saturday at the Civic Centre. "They tend to neglect us here in said Day. The they he referred to are the people of the Alberta Senior Volleyball League. "We will host Calgary Pre- miers and the University of Calgary in a round-robin affair and it could be our only home action all year." the coach stated, "it seems we are al- ways travelling to Calgary or Edmonton." he pointed out, "we will have three games Saturday and they should be dandies." The locals meet University of Calgary at noon, the two Cal- gary clubs play at two and the Premier and Dr. Day's squad tangle at four. All games are at the Civic Centre. Also on the coaching staff of team will once again play in the City Recreation League and will entertain other Universi- ties in exhibition matches. Hans Buhrman will coach the soccer and badminton teams while Bert Fairbanks directs the fortunes of the University wrestling team. Yosh Senda, director and coach of the Letli- bridge YMCA Judo Club has once again agreed to coach the University team and hopes are for a very successful year. Completing the c o a c hing staff will be Gaynel McNamee and her duties will be in the field of gymnastics, a relatively new venture for the school. With the exception of basket- ball, it will be awhile before the University of Lethbridge enters further into total parti- cipation in ail athletic events in the conference. "When we get our own said the University are Al Ferchuk, j Dr. Bowie, "then we will be who wiU look after hockey. The I heard from. Detroit ace Lolich close second Blue surprised he was named OAKLAND (AP) "The way I look at tills year Is that it helped prepare me for next sea- said Vida Blue the Amer- ican League's Cy Young Award winner. The 22-year-old left-hander, in his first major league baseball season, had a 24-8 n'.aht shutouts and a 1.112 earned-run average as he pitched Oakland Athletics to the West Division title. He is the youngest player ever to win the award and is considered a strong contender for the league's Most Valuable Player Award, to be made next month. "I'l never get that one. They can't give me Blue said Tuesday after the Baseball Writers Association of America named him the league's best pitcher. He was surprised at the out- come of the Cy Young Award voting, saying: "I really thought Mickey Lolich would win it, but I'm glad I did." Sugar Kings beaten by Cowtown visitors By LLOYD YAMAGISIII Herald Sports Writer The prospect of the long trip home was made a little easier to bear as the visiting Calgary Canucks dropped the Lcth- bridge Sugar Kings 5-2 in Al- berta Junior Hockey League action Tuesday night. Some 300 loyal fans crowded into the Adams Ice Centre to watch the Sugar Kings turn a 1-0 first period lead into a 5-2 loss. Terry Tarnow opened the scoring for the Kings at the mark of the first period but saw the lead fade with goals by Mark Lomenda and John Snodgrass. The Canucks increased their lead to 3-1 as Elaine McLeod tallied the only second period marker at In the final 20 minutes of play, Dale Eloschuk pushed Calgary's lead to 4-1 but Ken Dodd closed the gap some two minutes later on a break-away.

CERTIFIED SPECIALISTS PINCHER CREEK PHONE 627-4042 Oil Kings share lead with Cents By THE CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oil Kings climbed into a tie for first place in the western division, downing vis- iting Victoria Cougars 5-1 in one of three Western Canada Hockey League games Tuesday night. Regina Pats, the eastern-di- vision basement-d w e 11 c r s, climbed out of the cellar by scoring an upset 9-3 win over the divsion-leading Flin Flon Bombers in a game in Regina. The bottom rung of the east- ern-division ladder now belongs to Swift Current Broncos, who fell apart in the third period and were defeated 6-3 by New Westminster Bruins in the prai- rie city. Edmonton, led by a three- goal outburst from Don Kozak, now shares the western division lead with Calgary. Each have 10 points, two ahead of New Westminster. Kozak, despite spending the equivalent of a full period in the penalty box, also got an as- sist. Linemates Darcy Rota and Fred Comrie cdded the other 011 king markers. Rick Kennedy scored the lone Victoria goal, the final marker of the game, as Edmonton out- shot the Island City 35-25. In Regina, the Pats got six unanswered goals in the last half of the game. Regina led 3-2 at the end of the first pe- riod and, although Flin Flon tied it up early in the second, were ahead 7-3 by the end of the second and added two more in the final. with fantastic saves most of the night. Dave B'-uce finally nut the game out of reach for the Kings scoring at the mark on a tijHn. During the first two periods of play both clubs displayed a clean brand of hockey with fast end-to-end rushes. The third period, however was a different story, Two majors along with two 10-mrnute misconducts and a game misconduct were handed out by head referee Jerry Grey. Grey also gave John Chap- man the gate as the Kings' coach argued a call a little too harshly. The victory pushed the Can- ucks into a second place tie with the defending champion Red Deer Rustlers, with 10 points apiece. The Calgary Mount Royal Cougars lead the league with 12 points while the Sugar Kings share fourth place with the Edmonton Movers, each with four points. A three-star selection was made after the game by a local sportscastcr, who chose Milton, the Canucks' fine netminder for his first star and Calgary's hard-working centre, Blaine McLeod for his second. Sugar Kings' defenceman, Mike Clark was selected as the third star. Each player chosen will re- ceive a trophy from the El Rancho Motor Hotel for their fine efforts.

LIFE Lolich, of Detroit Tigers, was runner-up in the voting and Wil- bur Wood of Chicago White Sox finished third. Blue got 14 of the 24 first-place votes, Lolich nine and Wood one. Lolich and Wood, also south- paws finished the season strong while Blue was tailing off from a sizzling start that made him baseball's biggest drawing card. Lolich finished 25-14 and Wood was 22-13. "The last part of the season, I was just Blue said. "But it wasn't my arm. It was all that pressure from the publicity. I just couldn't take it mentally." Blue, a handsome bachelor, signed with the Athletics after a great high school athletic career at Mansfield, La. He got national atten- tion last year with a no-hitter against Minnesota Twins in a late-season stay with Oakland. But he took baseball fans largely by surprise this year, and more than a million paid to see him pitch. HAS A THEORY "I guess a lot of people came out to see if I was for said Blue. He won 19 games before his 22nd birthday on July 28. Two 1-0 losses and a game in which he pitched 11 shutout innings, and left with the score 0-0, later helped ruin his chance to win 30 games. Blue received a reported this year, plus a new car that owner Charles 0. Finley presented him. President Nixon two days after announcing his wage-price freeze, met with the Athletics at the White House and called Blue "the most underpaid player in baseball." Meanwhile in Senda, Japan right-hander Pat Dobson's stel- lar three-hit pitching, coupled with a dynamic 13-hit assault, enabled the American League champions, Baltimore Orioles, to whip Japan's Tokyo Yomiuri Giants 10-1 today. The 29-year-old Dobson, one of Baltimore's 20-game winners this season, held the Japan Se- ries champion Giants scoreless until two out in the ninth inning. Dobson, who wound up with a 20-8 won-lost record, yielded a solo homer to first baseman Sa- daharu Oh, who captured the Central Leagues home run title with 39 this past season. The triumph extended Balti- more's winning streak to three in Japzn. The Orioles guests of the Giants, arrived in Tokyo last Thursday for an 18-game post-season goodwill tour.
