Pocza was one of four champions who won their titles in sudden-death fashion as the National Youth five-pin bowling championships wound up Wednesday. Pocza and Leonard Leveille of Earlton, Ont. finished deadlocked for the gold medal each with a record of 20 wins and seven losses. In the sudden-death battle Pocza 1 rattled the pins for a big 291 and easily bested Leveille's 225 for the gold medal. In bantam girls' competition the Lethbridge gals finished fifth in the 10-team competition. Western bowlers won their share of silverware. Joining Pocza in the gold bracket were Chris i Ahronson of Edmonton in bantam girls'; Paul Sawyer of Vancouver bantam boys'; Cathy Harms, Surrey, B.C. junior girls'; Ed Nordvall, Calgary, senior boys' and Val Yasmski, New Westminster, senior girls'. In team competition, Red Deer won the junior girls' title, Prince Albert the bantam girls' crown and Regina the senior boys'. Nearly 300 entries, ranging in age from eight to 20 took part in the four-day event.

Wolves were a goal up at half time and appeared heading for an easy win when defenders Parkin and McAlle collided. As both men lay stunned, Les Barrett slipped in to score Fulham's equallizer. Vivian Busby put Fulham ahead a few minutes later and then the Cupholders fate was sealed when Barrett hit his second. It was a miserable night for Tottenham Hotspur, the once proud side of the First Division. Spurs, who have won the League Cup twice in the last four years, were thrashed 4-0 by Middlesborough.

The Eastern Football Conference club said Wednes- day it had reached a verbal agreement with Jackson, 37, on a five-year contract that is to take effect Jan. 1, 1975. "It was one of the biggest decisons of my Jackson said at a news conference. always considered myself to have two and athletics. "But I'd come to a point where I'd gone through the stages of being a teacher, vice-principal and principal and I asked myself where was I going from there. "I needed a challenge." The Argos had sought Jack- son after they fired head coach John Rauch last week, blaming him for not making full use of all offensive tactics available in the Canadian Football League. Owner Bill Hodgson and general manager John Barrow insisted that RauchTs replacement have a strong background in the CFL. Jackson, although he has had no coaching experience, fills the Argos' first re- quirement. The former Ot- tawa Rough Riders quarter- back was named the out- standing player in the CFL three times and the league's outstanding Canadian four times before retiring after leading the Riders to the Grey Cup championship in 1969. Barrow said Jackson's con- tract, to be signed by both par- ties in about a week, does not take effect until next year be- cause both parties agreed it was not desireable for to take over in mid- season. Joe Moss, defensive backfield coach under Rauch, will remain as interim coach, assisted by Rod Humenuik and Bill Quinter The Argos. who face British Columbia Lions here tonight, have won only three of their first eight games and are tied with Ottawa for last place in the EFC.

Players, coach envision championship for the Winston Churchill Bulldogs By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer While the LCI Rams and the Catholic Central Cougars are busy knocking off each other in quest of the Southern Alberta High School Football League championship, the Winston Churchill Bulldogs could slip past them and end up taking the title themselves. Winston Churchill came close last year, finishing second with a 4-3 record. They hope to make it all the way to the top this year, mainly on the strength of the passing arm of quarterback Derek Redman and the catching ability of flanker Barry Schmidt. "I've never seen such sure hands on a high said Bulldog coach Peter Neufeld of Schmidt. "Barry can run the 40 in 4.7 seconds and that speed combined with his hands and size, should give him over 25 catches this year." "We pass more than any other high school team and that is solely because our quarterback and receivers are good ones and we can rely on coach Neufeld stated. "The pass is part of our game, but we have an evenly balanced Derek said. "We split our plays about 50-50. But with the good receivers we have it makes it easier to throw to them with confidence." Derek had an amazingly high completion record last year' for a high school quarterback, hitting on approximately 45 per cent of his passes. The Bulldog attack operates out of a pro formation, which is similar to a slot T and can be switched into a power T formation by pulling the wingback back. They have developed a more sophisticated line game, making more use of pulling guards and trap blocks plus other aspects of line play. The coaching staff of Winston Churchill instill a basic philosophy into their charges. "We stress allegiance to the coach Neufeld said. "Dedication and self sacrifice are essential and the individual must always strive to benefit the team by his performance and not just himself." Coach Neufeld is optimistic about this years squad and looks to improve his 4-3 record last year. Quarterback Redman feels that if everything falls into place, and the injury total is kept to a minimum, the Bulldogs will make it to the top. "We are capable of he said. "We are an adaptable team and can play any style of game. If the opposition is sticking to a certain style we can adapt to that and handle the-situation." Derek is the primary signal caller during the game, with few plays coming in from the bench. The Bulldogs open the season against eastern division Medicine Hat McCoy High on Saturday at eight at Henderson Stadium. "I think it's to our benefit to start against Medicine Hat rather than the LCI or Catholic Barry said. "By the time we play, one of the two teams we have to beat for the title will already have one loss and that will help us psychologically." Team spirit appeared high at the Bulldogs practices, with all 38 team members showing a willingness to work hard. In fact, after the practice, Redman and Schmidt moved to another area of the field and continued their passing drills. Unlike the other schools Winston Churchill spends a number of hours a week on blackboard instruction. Mistakes or problems that show up in the practice are discussed later each evening in chalk-talks held separate from the practices. The Bulldogs haven't been to the top yet, bat they seem ready to make the climb this year and LCI and Catholic Central will have their hands full keeping the Bulldogs out of first spot. Among the players expected to be the mainstays of the team besides Redman and Schmidt are fullback Jerry Areshenko, Randy Rae, Hank Heerze and minor football league graduate Pat McCune. Parents of the Bulldog football team will have the opportunity to meet coach Neufeld and his assistants. Cliff Walters, Bob Myers and Paul Bradley, Friday night at 7 at the school. The coaching staff will explain the team operation and the opportunity to chat with the coaches will be provided after the refreshments are served.

THE CANADIAN PRESS When Hamilton Tiger-Cats acquired Don Jonas from Winnipeg Blue Bombers last week in a quarterback swap, it was assumed Jonas would become the Ticats' No. 1 passer. "The way things are going, I might not be able to crack the Jonas said Wednes- day night after Bill Etter led the Ticats to a 27-0 win over Calgary Stampeders. Etter, in his second year as backup to Chuck Ealey, since departed to Winnipeg, won his second Canadian Football League game in a row with a strong display of passing and running. Etter started with a six- yard touchdown pass to Tony Gabriel in the first quarter, and then his 73 yards gain on eight carries and his passing led to two touchdown runs by Dave Flemling, one from 11 yards and one from two. "He's got confidence Ticat coach Jerry Williams said of the sophomore quarterback from Notre Dame. The Stampeders, with Pete Liske at quarterback most of the way, showed little spark and gave up four fumbles. Cal- gary's total offence was 171 yards while the Ticats gained 297. The Stampeders, with only one win in eight games, move on to Ottawa for a game Saturday afternoon against the Rough Riders. HAMILTON 27 CALGARY 0 CAL. HAM.
