Dallas crushed Miami 24-3 in Super Bowl VI behind quarter- back Roger Staubach. The Dol- phins haven't lost a regular sea- son or playoff game smce the lashing, but suffered a 20-17 ex- hibition loss to Minnesota last week. While Miami's comeback abil- ity will be tested, coach Tom Landry will be looking at las' pre-season finale to settle his No. 1 quarterback problem. Will it be the scrambling Roger Staubach or the conservative Craig Morton? Both played well as Dallas ripped Kansas City last week. Staubach gets the starting nod against the Dolphins with Mor- ton ticketed for duty in the sec- ond half. "We'll definitely make a deci- sion on the after the game, Landry said. Dallas, which has been in the NFL playoffs a record seven consecutive years, is 3-2 in the pre-season while Miami holds a 4-1-1 record The Dolphin-Cowboy game opens the final weekend of exhi- bition action in the NFL. Friday, Kansas City Chiefs are at St. Louis Cardinals, New England Patriots at Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams. Saturday's schedule has Oak- land Raideis at Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers at Cincin- nati Bengals, New York Giants against Cleveland Biowns at Akron, Ohio, New York Jets facing Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa, Fla., Atlanta Falcons at Pittsburgh Steelers, Min- nesota Vikings at San Diego Chargers and Houston Oilers at New Orleans Saints.

WINS ALL SETS Chris Evert and Evonne Goolagong, just as Margare' Court did earlier, reached the semi-finals without losing a set but not without a struggle. Chris, the third seed from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., capital- ized on errors by Rosemary Casals for a 6-1 triumph in the first set, but Miss Casals seeded sixth, got two service breaks in the second and was on the brink of winning it. Although managing split Hawks are all but out HALIFAX (Special) The Taber Ebony Hawks are all but out of the running for the 3973 Canadian senior B la- crosse title although managing a split in a pair of games Wednesday. The Alberta representatives dropped a 9-5 decision to Nova Scotia in their first encounter of the day but came back to upset Manitoba 9-6. Taber, who suffered a 24-3 shallacking by Ontario in their first match, now sport a 1-2 record leaving them tied for third place with Manitoba. Ontario, who whipped Mani- toba 12-4, leads the round-robin series with a 3-0 standing while Nova Scotia follows in second with a 2-1 record. The top two teams after the round robin scries will meet in a sudden death final Friday for the championship title. Ontario is assured of a play- off spot with their unblemished record while Nova Scotia is just a stones throw away from capturing the other. Mathematically, the Hawks are still in the playoff race, but would have to whip B.C. in their final match today and then see Ontario white-wash Nova Scotia. If this should happen to occur, the Hawks and Nova Scotia would be tied with iden- tical 2-2 records which would call for a tie-breaker. In order to break the tic, each team with the lowest ratio would advance to the finals against Ontario. After three games apiece, Nova Scotia have a 29-21 goals for and against ratio while Taber is 39-17. Meanwhile in their first match Wednesday, the Hawks battled Nova Scotia to a 2-21 draw after ths first period but weakened and found themselves trailing 7-3 after Hie second. Art Barcham led Tabsr with a pair of goals while singles went to Bruce Christenson, Ken Boychuk and Wayne Bowes. Jim Matthews tallied five goals for the winners who out- shot Taber 44-43. In their second contest, the Hawks trailed 4-1 at the end of the second period and 4-3 after the second before they rallied back to drop Manitoba. Taber, who outshot Mani- toba 48-22, wers led by Boy- chuk with two goals while solo markers came off the sticks of Bareham, Christenson, Ron Chmielewski, Roger McAdam, Alvaro Zanolli, Ken Hammer- stedt and Gary Scovil. Dave Martin and Don Paul notched three goals each in a losing cause. i Everybody chipping in for Reds By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Johnny Bench, Pete Rose and Joe Morgan are the leading men of Cincinnati Reds, but not always the whole show. There's a talented supporting cast and some of them took centre stage Wednesday night in a National League baseball game. "It's guys like Dan Driessen and Ed who are helping us turn the season said Ross after the Reds beat Houston Astros 9-3 in 11 innings. Armbrister drove in three runs in regulation time and Driessen knocked in the tie- breaker in a six-run rally in the llth to give the Reds their sev- enth consecutive victory and a two-game lead over Los Ange- les in the National League West race. In other National League ac- tion, the Dodgers lost ground by losing to San Francisco Giants 7-0; St. Louis Cardinals gained ground in the Natonal League East by beating Pittsburgh Pi- rates 5-3; New York Mets stopped Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 and San Diego Padres trimmed Atlanta Braves 4-3. Rain post- poned the Chicago Cubs-Mon- treal Expos game at Montreal. A walk to Tony Perez and sin- gles by Bench and Cesar Gero- nimo loaded the bases and set the stage for Driessen's game- winning hit. The Reds then poured five more runs across on a sacrifice fly by Denis Menke, Clay Car- roll's infield single, Rose's run- producing double and Morgan's two-run single. It opened an insurmountable lead over the also a little daylight over the sec- ond-place Dodgers. "We've got to play hard ev- ery said Rose. "Every game counts. We play Los An- geles next week and that can make the difference right there. We've got the Giants to worry about, too. They're gaining ground. We close the season against them at home." "We've got 22 games to said Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson. "I still believe it will go down to the wire." The third-place Giants re- mained within five games of the top by taking a 7-0 decision over the slumping Dodgers, who have lost six in a row. Right-hander Jim Barr hurled a six-hitter and the Giants scored seven times in the first three innings to complete a three-game sweep of their series at Candlestick Park. Ted Sizemore and Tim McCarver each drove in two runs to lead St. Louis over Pittsburgh 5-3 as the Cardinals stretched their East lead over the Pirates to three games. Rusty Staub blasted a bases- empty homer and Wayne Gar- rett knocked in two runs with a triple to lead New York over Philadelphia 4-0. Ray Sadecki and Tug McGraw combined on a four-hitter for the Mets. _ Pinch-hitter Gene Locklear's single in the ninth inning scored Leron Lee with the winning run that rallied San Diego to a 4-3 triumph over Atlanta. The numbers are still on Bal- timore's side, but those figures looked a little nicer before the Orioles flew into Boston earlier this week. The second-place Red Sox took three out of four from the American League East leaders this week, including a 7-5 base- ball victory Wednesday night and cut the Orioles' edge to four games. Elsewhere In the American League, Detroit Tigers beat Cleveland Indians 7-3 and Oak- land A's defeated California An- gels 11-8. A sweep or near-sweep of the four-game by Baltimore would have just about provided the knockout punch the" Orioles are looking for. And after Balti- more's 13-8, opening-game vic- tory, the Red Sox seemed down. "After losing the first game, I think our players were very professional about the said Kasko. "They didn't get worried or become sky high. They knew they had to go out and do a job and they did it." They did it Wednesday night behind Roger Moret, who in- creased his s perfect record to 10-0. Dwight Evans started things rolling for Boston in the second with a two-run homer. Carl Yastrzemski followed with a two-rim double and Danny Ca- ter and Carlton Fisk supplied run-scoring singles. The outburst broke a 1-1 tte. Cater had singled home a run in the first which the Orioles matched in their second on Don Baylor's ninth homer of the sea- son. Baltimore, boasting a 79-57 record, has 26 games left. Bos- ton show a 77-63 mark for its season and 22 games left. If the Orioles split their remaining games, the Red Sox would have to play .682 ball (15-7) to just tie. GETS START Lerrin LaGrow was put In tin starting rotation for Detroit Wednesday night and that more gave the recently-promoted pitcher his first victory and the recently promoted manager, Joe Schultz, his third victory in four games.
