Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, September 7, 1874 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Throw to right says Highbaugh Team Canada still shaky defensively By THE CANADIAN PRESS Larry Highbaugh appears to be daring Winnipeg quarter- backs Ralph Brock and newly- acquired Chuck Ealey to throw at the right side of the Edmonton defensive backfield when the Blue Bombers and Eskimos meet in a Western Footbafl Conference game Sunday. "In our first game, Sas- katchewan threw twice to our side and I intercepted." says Highbaugh, right cornerback. who teams with right defen- sive halfback Dick Dupuis. "In the second game, Calgary didn't throw to our side. In the third game, Saskatchewan threw three, one of which Dick knocked down and one of which I intercepted. "In the next one. Ottawa threw two but one was a quick out and one was a screen and they aren't real pass patterns. In the last two games, there were no passes to our side.'.' British Columbia Lions meet Saskatchewan Roughriders in Vancouver tonight in the only other weekend WFC game. The Lions, Roughriders and Es- kimos are tied tor first place with eight points each, while the Blue Bombers, on a three- game winning streak, are two points back. Sunday's game in Edmonton will be the first for Ealey as a Blue Bomber. He was ac- quired in a trade with Hamilton Tiger-Cats for Don Jonas, veteran quarterback and placekicker. Rookie Brock will start for the Bombers with Ealey, who is trying to learn the Winnipeg playbook, available for spot duty. The B.C.-Saskatchewan game will feature the first appearance by Lion defensive end Bill Baker against his old teammates. "Every game is impor- says the two-time all- Canadian traded to the Lions in the off-season. "But I guess the one against Saskatchewan is the most important for me this season." B.C. will have a revamped offence, due to injuries, for the game. Slotback Jim Young, who dislocated a shoulder last week, will be replaced by Munroe Eley, while Lou Harris takes over at halfback for Eley. Fullback Johnny Musso, the leading Lion rusher last season, will return to the lineup after recovering from a knee injury that knocked him out of the first six games. Both weekend games will be televised, tonight's at 9 MDT on the CBC west network, and Sunday's at 2 p.m. MDT on the CTV west network. Fans would like more excitement The CANADIAN PRESS No doubt football fans in Ot- tawa and Montreal will be looking for a little more ex- citement this weekend when the Eastern Football Conference swings back into action. Last week's two clashes produced a total of 44 points as Ottawa Rough Riders lost 11- in Hamilton to the Tiger- Cats and Montreal Alouettes edged the Argonauts 12-li in Toronto. The Rough Riders will have a chance to a'venge their loss when they play host to Ham- ilton in a game to be carried live on the CBC television net- work starting at 2 p.m. EDT. The Alouettes. who lead Ot- Toronto and Hamilton by four points, meet the Argonauts in Montreal Sun- LETHBRIDGE MINERS' CLUB FALL GOLF TOURNAMENT Sunday, Sept. 8 A.M. Roch Srunesu. B Cdrrier.

"That type of familiarity contributes to a better Levy said. "You learn how to stop people better." The Alouettes have placed import wide receiver Brian Baima on the 21-day injury list along with offensive lineman Pat Bonnett. Baima has a groin injury and Bonnett a sprained ankle.

(CP) Team Canada '74 got the lesson it came for Friday night when it came close to getting beaten by a crew of aroused juniors from the Western Canada Hockey League. The World Hockey Associ- ation pros chosen to go against Russia struggled defensively most of the way but won 6-5 when Frank Mahovlich scored with 59 seconds remaining. "It was an excellent lesson." said Team Canada coach Billy Harris. "It would have been a much better lesson if we lost but I'm not unhappy with our progress. ''You have to remember we've only been on the ice since we opened the training camp on just five days." Harris repeated earlier statements that the tour is ac- complishing its objec- us in shape." The five-game exhibition swing resumes Sunday in Cal- gary. The tour also is exposing weaknesses in Team Canada, which meets Russia in an eight-game series beginning Sept. 17 in Quebec City. LOOKED INEPT Playing without stellar checkers Bruce McGregor and Rejean Houle, and with brilliant puck handlers Andre Lecroix and J.C. Tremblay on the bench. Team Canada look- ed inept at times. Ron Chipperfield of Team Canada, playing with the jun- iors, had two goals and an as- sist. His first goal trickled off the arm of netminder Don McLeod after only eight sec- onds. Other marksmen for the juniors were Ralph Klassen. Mike Rogers and Rick Blight. .Bobby Hull, Johnny McKenzie. Gordie Howe, Tom Webster. Paul Schmyr' and Mahovlich scored for the pros. Junior goaltender Ed Sta- niowski blocked 40 shots com- pared to 14 saves for McLeod and Gerry Cheevers. It was the second game in a first was a 7-2 vic- tory for Team Canada Thurs- day night in Medicine Hat. which the juniors got better goaltending than Team Canada. The second record crowd in as many nights watched Team Canada. A throng of was admitted to the arena which has only 5.022 seats. For the second night in a row. the juniors got magnifi- cent goa'.tending. Ed Staniowski. brilliant for Regina Pats last season when they won the Memorial Cup as Canadian junior hockey cham- pions, blocked 40 shots. 19 in the third period. Staniowski got the benefit of three goal posts but his play was far superior to that of the Team Canada netminders. Don McLeod and Gerry Cheevers. McLeod was beaten on the first shot he faced as Ron Chipperfield "s high shot from a bad angle trickled off his arm. He blocked only 11 shots and left after 40 minutes with Team Canada trailing 4-3. STOPPED ONLY THREE Cheevers made two fine stops but stopped only three shots in the third period. Chipperfield. playing before a record Brandon crowd of 5.- 791 in a building that seatsc 5.022. scored twice and added an assist on the final junior goal. Ralph Klassen. Mike Rogers and Rick Blight scored the other all-star markers. Blight's goal came against Oiccvers. a simple tap-in after Cheevers lost control of a rebound.
