Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Meet Stampeders in Calgary Wednesday Bombers grab share of runner-up position By THE CANADIAN PRESS Winnipeg Blue Bombers have won three' straight games for the first time since 1965 and have a share of second place In the Western Football Confer- ence, but coach Jim Spavita' says they still "can't afford to look past our noses." "We're" pleased we Spavital said after (jhe Blue Bombers beat last-place Ed- r monton Eskimos 26-14 Saturday nighl. "But we had some lapses and now we head into four games in 11 days." W i n n i p e g 's next game Is Wednesday night against Cal gary Stampeders, who dumped British Columbia Lions 25-10 Sunday to stay hi first place six points ahead of the Blue Bomb- THANK HEAVENS Looking toward the skies with a sigh. Masters champion Charles Coody holds his putter after sinking a par putt to win the 1971 World Series of Golf. Charles Coody narrow victor AKRON, Ohio (AP) Charles Coody, who had to hold off Jack Nicklaus to win the World Series of Golf Sunday, was talking about the shocking loss of four strokes on a single hole. "I wasn't feeling too good when it was over and I wasn't thinking said the 34- year-old Masters champion who shot a seven, two over par, on the second hole while Nicklaus made an eagle three. That gave Nicklaus a share of top spot in the chase for the first prize in this four- man tournament. But Nicklaus, playing errati- cally, couldn't take advantage of his opportunity, handed back the lead with a string of over- par holes and let Coody claim liis second tille of tile year and third of liis seven-year pro car- eer with a lliree-over-par 73 for 141 on the yard Firestone Country Club course. Nicklaus, the PGA champion, was next with a 71 for 142 with Australian veteran Bruce Crampton one more stroke back at 143 afler a final 70. Crampion got into the elite field as an alternate off his Western Open title when Lee Trevino made his sweep of the U.S., Canadian and British Open crowns. Trevino, still on the mend from a recent appendectomy, was last hi the field with a 74 for 146. Nicklaus picked up for second, pusliing his career earn- ings from this course alone to Meanwhile in Columbus, Ga. Joiui Miller almost didn't make it to the Southern Open Golf Tournament at Columbus, Ga., where he won his first major title Sunday. He had a date to go fishing. The 24-year-old Californian had made plans to go fishing but the persistent pleas of John Montgomery, Professional Golf- er s Association tournament director, finally persuaded him to enter. So Miller bypassed his fishing trip and fired a 67 over the par-70 Green Island County Club course for a 267 total and won the first prize by a comfortable five- stroka margin. In second place was veteran Deane Deman with 66, earning for his 272. In third place, one shot back, was Bobby Mitchell who set a course record Saturday with 62 but Sunday ballooned to a 71. Pitiful offence hurt Tiger-Cats By THE CANADIAN PRESS The Hamilton Tiger-Cat foot- ball club has long been noted for its rock-ribbed defence, and now Toronto quarterback Greg Barton has the marks to prove it. The Argonauts won a 23-14 de- cision over the Tiger-Cats in an Eastern Football Conference game in Toronto's Canadian Na- tional Exhibition Stadium Sun- day, but Barton had praise for the Ticat defence. "They're a tough said Barton, who was left with bleed- ing lips and several loose teeth from the relentless pounding of the Hamilton defensive corps. "That defence is good." In another EFC game, Ottawa Rough Riders scored six early points on two field goals Satur- day night but the Montreal de- fence held and Alouettes went on to defeat Riders 25-6 in Mont- real. The Ticals were reported af- fronted when Joe Theismann, Toronto's other quarterback, nlamed his poor passing and not the Hamilton defence for Toron- to's 30-17 loss to Ticats on Labor Day. COME OUT FIGHTING So on Sunday a pugnacious Hamilton defence came into the apparently bent on mak- ng Theismann eat his words. They mauled and clawed Theis- mann and Barton, but a weak offensive team spoiled the ef- fort. The Hamilton defence was re- sponsible for both Ticats1 touch- downs. In the first quarter Gar- ney Henley intercepted Theis- "lann'r first pass of the game at the Toronto 17-yard line, and on the next play quarterback Joe Zuger passed to Gord Chris- tian in the end zone. Hamilton's other touchdown came early in the fourth quarter when linebacker Emery Hicks, a newcomer, tackled Theismann in the end zone and recovered the fumble. Tommy Joe Coffey converted both touchdowns. Wide receiver Jim Henderson, playing his first game for Argos after coming off the injury list, scored two touchdowns for To- ronto. His first came on his first catch, an 11-yard pass from Barton late in the first quarter, and the second in the second quarter on a 13-yard pass from Theismann. MCQUAY GOES 64 YARDS Halfback Leon McQuay raced. 64 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter and Ivan Mac- Millan kicked three converts. The other two points came on a safety touch. The zealous Hamilton defence cost them 13 penalties for 138 yards, including six penalties for unnecessary roughiess. Ti- cats took nine penalties before Argonauts got one. Hamilton's offence was an in- credible 75 yards, while Toron- to's was 295. Alouettes. after spotting Rough Riders a 6-0 lead on Gerry Organ's two field goals in the opening quarter, dominated play although they lost three of four fumbles and gave up three pass interceptions. Wade, who completed 16 of 31 passes, also threw a nine-yard touchdown pass to Terry Evan- shen and one of three yards to Tom Pullen. Justin Canale con- verted two of tliree touchdowns and kicked a 48-yard field goal and a single on a missed fiel goal. Bill Massey kicked the other convert after Canale was bothered by a right knee in the fourth quarter. The game saw the debut of former U.S. track star John Carlos, who caught two pases for 17 yards playing flanker. 'Tm going to break him in said coach Sam Etch- everry of the American who is listed in the Canadian Football League as a non-import because he never played organized ball in the U.S. "He's eager and he's not afraid to run into peo- ple and block them."

Synthetic turf causes some concern WASHINGTON (A P) _ Three manufacturers of syn- thetic turf for athletic fields have been asked by a Con- gressional committee for an appraisal of its potential for athlete injury. Chairman John E. Moss (D of the House subcom- mittee on commerce and fi- nance, requested immediate reports in connection with his panel's consideration of con- sumer product legislation. Moss said he was "gravely concerned over a recent study by Dr. James Garrick of the University of Washington indi- cating that synthetic turf may cause almost 50 per cent more injuries than grass fields." Moss said about 113 syn- thetic football fields have been installed for high school, college and professional teams at a cost of about each. "Over one million athletes at the high school, college and pro level may be exposed to additional risk of injury If the University o f Washington study is Moss said. Moss said the study found synthetic turf caused addi- tional knee and ankle injuries because of increased friction. He said studies published in 1965 and 1967 in Rhode Island Ohio established that knee and ankle injuries already were the most prevalent seri- ous football injuries.

Parent was missing Uie first two days of Toronto's training camp at the Maple Leaf Gar- den- and may be suspended. He has not been seen by Leafs since Thursday when he and his lawyer lold general manager Jim Gregory he wants to rcne- gotiale his contract. The 26- year-old goalie, acquired from the Flyers last season, is on the third year of a three-year con- tract. "I'm looking for him to Gregory said Sunday. "Why should I go looking for him? He's broken his contract and unless I hear from liim and he lias a good story, I'll have no choice but to suspend Mm." Parent's former partner in goal in Philadelphia is missing from the Flyers' camp in Ot- tawa. Favcll and the Flyers look their contract dispute lo Ed Houston, the NHL arbiter, but Favell refused lo accept Houston's arbitration, The only other player missing In (he Flyers' camp was centre Bobby Clarke, leading team scorer last year, who is in Phil- adelphia for surgery on an ab- scessed tooth.

He was impressed will) the piny of rookie Guy Lafleur, who led Quebec RonWirls to the Memorial Cup championship last spring, "Lafleur said he was nervous and had a bit of a cold but he still locked Bowman said. "I know he played a lot of right wing as a junior but there's n big opening at centre without Jean Beliveau." Beliveau's place as captain will probably be taken by vet- eran centre Henri Richard, who typified most of the regulars by reporting at less than his play- ing weight. One who did not was spunky Rejcan lloulc who apparently did what lie promised last spiing nfler the Cnnadicns won the Stanley Cup. IIoiilc prom- ised lo gain some weight and he pounds.
