Hull said he is certain to play Sept. 17 in the first game of Team Canada's eight-game series with Russia. The series begins in Quebec City and ends March 6 in Moscow. Hull was hurt when he col- lided with a junior defenceman and the pair fell at one end of the rink while Don Ashby scored the first junior goal at the other end. Repeating that the scores in this five-game exhibition series are unimportant, Team Canada coach Billy Harris said he will discontinue much of the experimenting that marked the first three games. "I can't say enough in praise of the said Harris. "With their rein- forcements, they're a great hockey club." Most prominent again were rookies Dennis Sobchuk and Pat Price, who signed with WHA clubs after illustrious junior careers. Harris said there is no provision to take any juniors into the Russia series unless there is injury or illness "or unless we change our policy." He would not elaborate but manager Bill Hunter said the final make-up of the team will be discussed again after the exhibition series ends. Throughout the final period of the hard-fought contest, a crowd estimated at in the Stampede Corral cheered every move by the juniors and booed some of the pros. Primary targets were Gor- die Howe, who received a rousing ovation when introduced before the game, and Jim who restrained himself from fir- ing a right hand while roughing with John Phillips near the end of the game. Harrison made the score close for Team Canada when he tipped in a shot with remaining in the third period. Andre Lacroix scored the opening goal for Team Canada which had 7-2 and 6-5 victories in the first two games. Ashby and Bryan Trottier scored for the juniors in the second period.

Miners fall just short in bid C" to grab Calgary league honors By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer From all appearances, it is a pretty fair calibre of fastball that is played in the Calgary- Major Men's Fastball League. Just ask the Lethbridge Miners. Although the Miners took the provincial senior fastball crown and represented Alberta in the Canadian finals recently, they were unable to take their league title, losing 2-1 in extra innings to the Calgary Burns Shamrocks in Trevino wins AKRON, Ohio (AP) Lee Trevino beat Gary Player with a par on the seventh sudden-death playoff hole second hole of the claimed the first prize in the World Series of Golf. The playoff went through five holes before being stopped by darkness Sunday and resumed at 8 a.m. MDT today. Both Player, the little South African who won the 1974 Masters and British Open titles, and PGA champion Trevino birdied the par-four 14th hole today. Trevino holed out from 40 feet and Player scored from 12. On the 15th, a long par three. Player bunkered his tee shot and Trevino was 30 feet behind the hole. Player came out to 15 feet. Trevino got down in two and Gary missed the putt that would have extended the playoff. the deciding game of the playoff finals at Dave Elton Park Sunday. Mind you, the locals didn't go down without a fight. After dropping the first game of the series by a 2-1 count Saturday, they came back for a 4-2 triumph Sunday to force the third and final game. In that final, George San- toni, pitching his third contest in 24 hours, shut out the Shamrocks for eight and two thirds innings before the visitors put together a triple, and error, a walk and a single for their only two runs of the game. The Miners almost made the comeback in the bottom of the frame when Mitch Mychasiuk singled and was driven in by Dan Santoni's tri- ple with no one out. However, the Shamrocks got two out when Garth Lamb flied to right field and Hank Huva cut down Santoni at home plate with a beautiful throw. John Speck was the big man for Calgary in the final, getting credit for the win on the mound, and blasting out a pair of doubles at the plate. He held the Miners to seven hits and struck out seven. The Shamrocks got only four hits off Santoni, who came up with an outstanding performance in a losing cause. He also shone at the plate, poking out a single in each of his three times at bat. In the first game Sunday, the Miners took a 3-1 lead when they scored a pair of runs in the third inning, and held on for the 4-2 triumph. Santoni refused to allow a hit in the final four innings and gave up only five in all while striking out six. Larry Tratch had a double while Santoni had a pair of singles to lead the Miner at- tack on loser Dale Hefrick. Five other Miners had singles. Ken Johnston belted a home run and a single for the Shamrocks. Johnston scattered just five hits for the victory Saturday night, in which the visitors staged a late inning rally to overcome a one run deficit. Trailing 1-0 going into the sixth frame, the Shamrocks tied the score when John Speck blasted one over the fence, and then scored the winner on a pair of doubles in the seventh.
