Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 13, 1973 FABULOUS LAS VEGAS 5 DAYS 4 NIGHTS ACCOMMODATION Circus Circus Many Extras Several Departures from Calgary Only rtn. par person (double occupancy) ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan first winners The 1973 Lethbridge Minor F'ootball League season got under way with a pair of games staged at Henderson Stadium Wednesday night. Some 700 spectators were on hand as they watched Alderman Bill Kergen open the new year with the official kick-off. After the opening ceremonies were closed, the defending champion Lions and Stampeders got down to business and registered the first victories of the '73 schedule. The Lions scored an im- pressive 25-13 decision over the Bombers behind Pat McCune's four touchdowns while the Stamps edged the Kskimos 12-6. In the league opener, McCune was a one-man show as he easily out-legged his pursuers four major scores. Two of his majors came on 75 and 25 yards out. Mark Rowe converted only one of McCune's touchdowns for the remaining Lions's point while Earl Ingarfield and Dominic Sanangleo were the only ones to hit pay-dirt for the Bombers. Mark Treble and Glen Laf- fingvvell notched a touchdown each for the winners while Dave Creighton tallied the lone major for the Esks. Archie busy SAN DIEGO Moore will be washing win- dows twice a week for the next month because he pick- ed Ken Norton to beat Muhammad Ali in their re- match Monday night. The former light heavy weight champion started scrubbing panes Wednes- day at Sam J. Tringali's east San Diego bakery. He'll re- turn each Monday and Fri- day morning for the next four weeks. "I have done a lot of things in my day, even clean win- said Moore, who di- rects a San Diego youth pro- gram.

I couldn't believe my ears when I heard Ocean Mouth Muhammad Ali make that statement after he won a political split decision Monday night in Los Angeles over over-rated Ken Norton. Ali's silver tongue, silenced due to a broken jaw the last time he fought Norton, is back in shape. It is about the only thing about Ali that is. Ali. for all intents and purposes, is. as the saying goes, over the hill. In my opinion he won Monday's fight on his name alone. I'm not saying Norton should have won, no, it simply should have been listed a draw between two mediocre heavyweights. Nothing more and nothing less. Norton would have had to knock Ali out in the 12th round to win it. Ali simply landed some soft punches on the head of Norton and was awarded a split decision. I said politics and I have to stick by it. You can't tell me that the fact Ali and his mouth won't help sell another million dollar gate for the powers that be. Do you think Norton could sell a product in that manner? It would take a month of Sundays to convince me. Ali was in rare form Monday after the fight. "Norton was better than I thought he he said, "The times I fought Sonny Listen, if I fought like I did then, Norton would have beaten me. But my experience got me through this." Then came the statement to end all statements as Ali answered the question "what about a title fight with George Foreman'.'" will be much easier than Norton Ali replied. The man's brain has been numbed. I would suggest. For a few rounds. Ali might be able to escape Foreman's sledgehammer strength, but not for 15 rounds. And no one, in his right mind, is going to bet on an Ali knockout. Sooner or later, the heavyweight champion will land one of his devastating blows. For the first time in his career, Muham- mad Ali will be counted out. In his prime. Ali might have eluded Foreman, frustrated him and won a decision. But not now. As one knowledgeable fight follower stated, more and more it looks as though Ali and Joe Fra'zier destroyed each other physically and emotionally, in their brutal epic. Their bodies haven't been the sa'me since. And their spirits will never again soar as they did before the million extravaganza. Think back a short time. Against Frazier Ali's face, which he used to say Was the greatest, not a mark on it, appeared as though there was a balloon inside it. Then, last year, he knocked out light heavyweight Bob Foster, but Foster cut him. Followed by Norton's jaw-breaking shot in the first fight with Ali and Foreman's demolition of Frazier. I can't help but feel somewhat sorry for Ali. The punch is gone. No power remains. He only dances every third dance while in the ring. He is talking to hear himself talk. George Foreman would simply ease Ali into retirement should the two meet. Lions, Stamps Richmond falls back in finals NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. (CP) Peterborough PCOs defeated Richmond Roadrunners 10-9 Wednesday in the third game of the Minto Cup junior lacrosse final to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of- seven series. The fourth game will be played here Friday night with a fifth game here Saturday. It was a dull contest until the mark of the second period when Richmond em- barked on a comeback that almost won them the game. Two fast goals by Bob Tasker at and Tom Fenway 15 seconds later snapped Richmond out of the doldrums and brought them to within two goals of Peter- borough, coasting along with a 7-3 lead. Richmond scored in the third period after only 21 seconds, then Peterborough goalie Fred Gardner picked up a delay-of-game penalty at of the final period. Minor football opener The Lethbridge Minor Football League kicked off its 1973 season Wednesday evening at Henderson Stadium. Despite the cool weather a good crowd was on hand for the first night of action that saw the Lions and Stampeders on their way to winning season with first-night victories. Next action in the five-team league will be staged Monday night.

"It wasn't my best night with the slider, and it wasn't my best night with the curve." All the Montreal pitcher could do Wednesday night was throw the ball, hope for the win. "I guess you could say my pitching was good but my throwing was said the 23year-old rookie after leading the Expos to a 2-1 vic- tory over St. Louis Cardinals that further confused the National League East Divi- sion race. "I just had to pump myself said Rogers, who twice loaded the bases with none out but escaped trouble each time. "I guess I was a little tight. I probably didn't warm up enough." While giving up six walks and six hits, Rogers held the Cardinals down long enough for Bob Bailey to deliver the knockout ninth-inning homer. The victory, the ninth in 12 decisions for the young right- hander, moved the Expos within one game of the top in the East race. Pittsburgh Pirates beat Chi- cago Cubs 4-2 to move into first place by a half game over the Cardinals and New York Mets nipped Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 to move 2V2 games back in fourth place. The Cubs were in fifth, three games behind. In other games, Cincinnati Reds tripped Los Angeles Dodgers 7-3 and Atlanta Braves whipped San Fran- cisco Giants 10-4. The Expos and St. Louis are idle tonight, so the Pirates have an opportunity to pad their lead while playing at Chicago. Elsewhere, the Mets are in Philadelphia, Los Angeles is at Houston and San Diego Padres at home against the Giants. The 6-foot-2 Rogers, called up to the majors less than two months ago, worked out of bases-loaded jams in the first inning, after the Cardinals scored their run, and in the seventh. The Expos scored their first run in the fifth on Tim Foil's single, a sacrifice by Rogers and Larry Lintz's base hit over second baseman Ted Sizemore's glove. Then Bailey slugged his 24th homer leading off the ninth to settle it. "He's got to go with his best Countdown in the east There is magic in the American League air these brisk September days and almost all of it is centred in Baltimore and Oakland where the Orioles and Athletics are beginning to count. The Orioles swept a Wednesday twi-night doubleheader from Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 and 5- 3, reducing their number for clinching the East Division ti- tle to 12. Any combination of Baltimore victories and-or Boston Red Sox defeats totall- ing a dozen, puts the Orioles in the playoffs. Oakland's favorite digit right now is 13. That's what it will take to win the West for the Athletics after they dropped a 5-0 decision to Kan- sas City Royals. Elsewhere Wednesday night, Boston defeated New York Yankees 7-1, Texas Rangers beat Minnesota Twins 5-2 and California Angels edged Chicago White Sox 6-5. Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers were not scheduled. Oakland has led the West race since Aug. 16, just two days after Baltimore took over first place in the East.

Phone 328-1241 Both teams hold comfortable leads as the baseball season heads into its final 2Vz weeks. Baltimore's East lead stretched to six games over Boston with the sweep against the Brewers. Jim Palmer won his 20th game in the opener, marking the fourth straight year he's reached that measure of pitching excellence. Rich Coggins drove in two of the Oriole runs and stole two bases in the opener. Then the rookie outfielder tripled, touching off a two-run Oriole rally that broke an eighth-inning tie and com- pleted the sweep. Oakland ran into Hal McRae's hot bat. McRae boomed a pair of home runs, one of them with two Royals on base, leading Kansas City to its victory over Oakland. Paul Splittorff and Doug Bird combined to pitch the shutout which left the Royals five games back at the Athletics in the West.

Bob Robertson's three-run homer led Bruce Kison and Pittsburgh. "We were trying to pitch around said Chicago catcher Randy Hundley. But Chicago starter Mike Paul un- corked a slow curve over the heart of the plate and Rob- ertson hit into the bleachers. Wayne Garrett and John Milner hit home runs to help New York beat Philadelphia. Tug McGraw saved the game for the Mets with tough relief pitching in the last two in- nings, striking out five batters. Pitcher Jack Billingham started a five-run seventh in- ning with a bases-loaded dou- ble and scattered eight hits to lead Cincinnati over Los Angeles. The Dodgers, who led the West by four games less than two weeks ago, dropped five games behind the Reds. Darrell Evans blasted two home runs and Marty Perez drove in three runs with a homer and double to lead At- lanta past San Francisco. Hunt feels owners will kill football ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) Texas millionarie Lamar Hunt, who pioneered the American Football League, says it won't be the lifting of the television blackout that will kill pro football, but the continued complacency on the part of owners. Hunt, president of the Kan- sas City Chiefs, said Tuesday: "Pro football can't afford to be stagnate. It has taken the play away from other sports and we have to be certain not to let it slip away." The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote approval of the lifting of the television blackout and football owners have been complaining about infringements on the free enterprise system. Hunt said he is alarmed by the trend toward more conser- vative offences and lower scoring games.
