Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Wednesday, September 12, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 SAIISFL officially opens Friday night Bulldogs, Cougars meet in opener By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The 1973 Southern Alberta High School Football League schedule will officially get un- der way with the Winston Churchill Bulldogs hosting Catholic Central Cougars Fri- day night. The opening kick-off for the season opener is set for eight o'clock at Henderson Stadium. As in previous years, the six-team league will be divid- ed into two divisons with each club playing four division games along with three interlocking tilts. Bulldogs. Cougars and Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rums will make up the west division while three teams from Medicine Hat which includes Medicine Hat High School, Crescent High School and McCoy High School will make up the east division. In the west division, it should be a battle between the defending champion Rams and the up in coming Bulldogs for the pennant title. The Rams, who are guided by coach. Jim Whitelaw, will have an experienced club with many of the championship squad returning for another vear. It won't be easy Coach Jim Meilan, right, of the Lethbridge Native Sons of the Southern Alberta Junior B League, talks with three hopefuls Tuesday night. From the left are Derrick Blasco, Richard Shardlow and Doug Reynolds. The Sons opened camp Tuesday at Henderson. Bom hers host Ottawa Rodgers made difference VANCOUVER (CP) When Montreal Alouettes picked up Johnny Rodgers before the 1973 Canadian Foot- ball League season, observers figured the United States" college star would create ex- citement in the CFL. That held true Tuesday night as Rodgers single- handedly turned a boring lacklustre football game into an exciting 10-7 victory by the Alouettes over British Colum- bia Lions in an interlocking contest. It was a big win for Alouettes. who had lost three and tied one after winning the first two games of the season. It moved Montreal into second place in the Eastern confer- ence, ahead of Hamilton Tiger Cats and behind Toronto Argonauts. Before Rodgers made his .move midway through the fourth quarter, it seemed as if the Lions would make Johnny Musso's six-yard touchdown run stand up for the victory. But the fleet back turned the corner from the Montreal 33- yard line, hypnotized two Lions who seemed to have him pinned in and zipped 58 yards to the B.C. 19. Four plays later. Jimmy Jones found Rig outing for King-Browns Sailing season ends It was a big day for the King-Brown family recently as the St. Mary's Sailing Club closed out another successful season. Stiff winds tested all those sailors who took part but it was Dr. King-Brown who showed his mastery in the final race. Bernard Stillwell, after a great effort at trying to out maneuver King-Brown had to settle for second spot. Third place went to Allan Dyer while Charles Virtue was fourth. In the women's regatta Miss Elaine King-Brown emerged victorious as she took the family Enterprise across the finish line first just ahead of Mrs. Francis Stillwell. to complete a day of being the bridesmaid for the Stillwell crew. Hillmans ink CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Crusaders general manager Jack Vivian con- firmed reports Tuesday that the World Hockey Association club has signed brothers Larry and Wayne Hillman. The two defencemen, both veterans of the rival National Hockey League, were reported to have signed four- year contracts with the Crusaders for an estimated Vivian declined to confirm any terms of the contracts. Vivian said the two brothers would "add both experience and maturity on our backline for the coming season." Larry 36, has been in the NHL for 15 years and played last season for Buffalo Sabres. Wayne, 34, has 11 seasons in the" NHL and skated last year with Phibdelphia Flyers. The two brothers both stand an even six-foot, although Larry weighs in at 181 pounds and Wayne at 205. JUST ARRIVED! HARLEY-DAVIDSON Sportsters and Super Glides Best Selection You'll Ever See 250010th Ave. S. Great Falls, Mont. Phone 406 761-2805 Running in third position into the third ieg John For- tune's boat, skippered by Miss Kirsty Gourlay. ran in to foul weather and moved off course sufficient to allow Mrs. Irene Virtue to move into third place, a position she held until the race was completed. Throughout the race, shifting high winds presented ample opportunity for skippers and crews of all boats to utilize their skill in order to maintain their craft in a more or less vertical position. Dunkings, much to the delight of all involved, were kept at a minimum. In the junior race Judd Vir- tue battled Will Lanier all the way before crossing the finish line first. Miss Gourlay was a very close third place finisher while Douglas Fortune almost caught Miss Gourlayat the finish line while settling for a fourth place finish. The curtain may be down on the 1973 season but it was a very successful one. Anyone interested in sailing under the flag of the local club is asked to contact Eric Schill. Commodore or Phil King, Vice-Commodore. TOUR SCRAPPED LONDON (AP) The Cricket Council announced Tuesday it has called off a scheduled tour of England by the South African test team in 1975. The council said the deci- sion would not prejudice the possibility of an England test team visiting South Africa in 197li but added such a tout- would lake place only if South Africa relaxed its apartheid laws separating the races in cricket. Brian Jack in the end zone for the touchdown. The Lions made a last-ditch attempt to at least tie. but came up short when Ron Per- owne intercepted a pass by Karl Douglas to snuff out the threat. Don Sweet added the other Montreal points, converting the touchdown and booting a 17-yard field goal. For B.C. field goal kicker Ted Gerela. the game was another chapter in the saga of the faulty foot. Gerela missed three i'ieldgoal tries, all from yards. Rodgers ended up with 105 yards on 14 carries. He also caught two passes for short gains. Both Jones and Douglas, rookie quarterbacks forced into service by injuries, had trouble moving their teams. The Alouettes managed just 3H2 yards in total offence. 242 of that along the ground, and 17 first downs, while the Lions had 307 yards, 195 by passing, and 20 first downs. The loss left the Lions fourth in the Western Football Conference with a 3-4 record. Another interlocking game is featured in the CFL tonight, with Ottawa Rough Riders travelling to Winnipeg to meet the Blue Bombers in a battle of the cellar-dwellers. The Bombers have gone to a short speedster in an effort to shake their losing ways. The new man is Rufus (the Roa- drunnert Ferguson, only five- foot-five, but packing 198 pounds on his frame. Ferguson will probably dress as Winnipeg's designated import, although coach Jim Spavital may un- leash the roadrunner.

"we have a number of veterans coming back and up to now I'm very pleased with how things are shaping up. We're looking for the title again and if we can stay away from injuries I think we'll hold our own." Having an experienced per- sonnel will be a definite asset for the Rams who'll be seek- ing their second straight title. Last season many of the returning players were in- strumental in giving the Rams a 6-1 record along with an un- believable points for-and- against ratio. In their seven games last season, the Rams' defence gave up only four touchdowns and an average of four points a game while the offence averaged 25 points a game. The veterans returning for another year with Whitelaw include the likes of Syd Collier, Don Johnston, Mike Day, Ross Wakelin, Randy Stevens. Larry Boultqn, Dave Baincs. Rick Collier and Mark Baldry. On the other hand, the only club on the north side of the tracks will also have an ex- perienced line-up. The Bulldogs, who recorded thei best won-lost record (4-3) since their inception, will have a veteran roster which should label them as a contender. Bulldogs' coach, Pete Neufeld, was a little hesitant to comment on his club's chances this season, but hinted they could be tough. "We're concentrating primarily on breaking out last year's 4-3 record and the boys can do it if they put everything into it." he commented. "I'd also like to say we're ready for the Cougars Friday night and the best team will win." he added. Neufeld has the right to be a little more optimistic if he would realize his talent ladened roster. To just mention a few. veterans such as Derek Red- man. Brian Clampitt. Bob Meyers. Todd Poberznick. Brent Hamilton and a rookie back-fielder Jerry Areshenko could propel the Bulldogs to their first pennant title ever. Meanwhile the Cougars un- der the watchful eye of coach, Dean Dahl. could have their worst season ever due to a lack of experienced players. The Cougars, who placed se- cond with a 5-2 record last season, will have only Guy Pomahac returning from the offensive unit while Pomahac. Andy Beaudin and Barry Niedermier are the only regulars back from last year's defensive squad. That means, 11 rookies will have to take over on the offen- sive team while nine rookies will see defensive action. According to Dahl, Pomahac, quarterback Alan Boras and halfback Dave Jackson will have to carry most of the offensive load while Steve Devcic along with Mike Santangelo and Nieder- mier will lead the team on defence. But yet. all the other teams in the league must be aware that the Cougars have always had a tough club regardless of their personnel. The Cougars rest on a winn- ing tradition and with Dahl at the reins they can, as the say- ing goes, stink all over but come out smelling like a rose. Anyway you look at it though, the west division pen- nant race will go right down to the wire. Billie Jean withdraws ST. LOUIS (AP) Billie Jean King, who was to be the main attraction in the St. Louis international profes- sional women's tennis tourna- ment, withdrew from the field Tuesday, one day before the start of play. Earl (Butch) Buchholz, tournament director, said Mrs. King was too sick to play in St. Louis and wanted to rest to prepare herself for her winner-take-all match Sept. 20 with Bobby Riggs in Houston. Representatives of Mrs. King said she was suffering from a slight imbalance in her blood sugar and from a cold. In qualifying matches Tues- day. 17-year-old Shelly Hudson of St. Louis upset Madeleine Pegel of Stockholm 6-1. 6-4 to gain a berth in the cham- pionship field of 32 women. She will open play today against Joy Schwikert of Las Vegas.

Foreman said Monday night that he will fight Jerry Quarry in November. Quarry knocked out Tony Doyle in a preliminary to Ali's hard- fought 12-round split decision over Norton. Ali said he wanted to fight Frazier in New York's Madison Square Garden because that is where Frazier handed Ali the oniy other loss of his career. FACESTOUR However, before he can meet Frazier or Foreman. Ali is committed to a tour and a fight with Rudi Lubbers of Holland at Jakarta Oct. 20. He will leave Sept. 26 for ex- hibitions in Hong Kong, In- donesia. Malaysia and Singapore and a possible fight with Jack O'Halloran in Aus- tralia in November. "It must be old age." said Ali flexing his right hand which he said he jammed in the sixth round. Ali suffered a broken jaw in his split-decision loss to Norton last March 31. Ali also said he was troubled with a calloused knuckle on his right hand and added, "It scares me my hands aren't like they used to be. "I'm not like I used to be when I was young." saichthe 31-year-old former champion. "But I still can beat Joe Frazier and George Foreman." RIBS WRITERS He then chided sports writers. "You wrote that I was through. You made this a big fight because you said it was going to be the end of Ali. Well. I got about another year or two to surprise you." Bob Arum of Top Rank, Inc.. which handled the closed-circuit telecast of the fight, said Ali and Norton would get well above their minimum guarantees of 000 and respectively. The live gate at the Forum was announced as and Arum said the net from television would be about million. That would put Ali's option of 35 per cent at about and Norton's 30 per cent at about SEVEN FURLONGS Roly Minx....................116 Joannie Pie ..................121 Meo Class ...................121 Sonnile Sid.............124 Canalta Rocky.......... 121 Woddah...................119 Road Breaks ...............121 Smart Bet.................124 my pick the danger old mare running good rail will help Alberta Bred......... good rider........... could be........... could be........
