Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, 16. THE LHHBRIDOE KERAID 1J Cougars come on strong in late stages Friday Bulldogs beaten in second half THE CHASE IS ON Three members of ihe Catholic Central Cougars are in pursuit of an unidentified Winston Churchill Bulldog in High School Football League action Friday night, it was a frustrating first half for the de- fending champion Cougars but they came up with a strong second half to trim the Bulldogs 21-11. Can Dallas repeat is big question It's down to business in the NFL By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "There Is something about him." Washington Redskins' coach George Allen recently said of quarterback Billy Kil- mer. "I don't know If it's chari- sma or whatever." That, perhaps, explains why Allen has named Kilmer to start Washington's opener Mon- day night against the fierce Vikings in Minnesota. That game wraps up the first weekend of National Football League action. The rest comes Sunday, with Miami Dolphins at Kansas City Chiefs, Phila. delphia Eagles at Dallas Cow- boys, Atlanta Falcons at Chi- cago Bears, Green Bay Pack- ers at Cleveland Browns, Hous- ton Oilers at Denver Broncos Cincinnati Bengals at New Eng land. Patriots, New York Jets at Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Rams New York Giants at Detroi Lions, St. Louis Cardinals a Baltimore Colts, Oakland Raid era at Pittsburgh Steelers an San Diego Chargers at San Francisco '49crs. When Kilmer'was with Orleans and Allen was coach a Los Angeles, "we played their twice a Allen recalls "The Saints should never hay been in those games, but Bi made them close. The guy ha a burning desire to win." BRINGS IN KILMER So when Allen switched t Washington, his first trade wa for it coiildn' have been a belter one. No. quarterback Sonny Jurgense suffered a shoulder Injury, Ki mer took over, led the 'Skins t five straight victories at th start of the 1971 season and final 9-4-1 record, Washington' best in 25 years. There's bound lo be a diffe ence in the Vikings' movin and scoring this season wit Frank Tarkcnton back. La year, relying heavily on Hie d fence to. pull them throug they averaged less than points a game and yielded less an 10.

Dahl, along with fans, had just watched the Catholic Central Cougars score three converted third-quarter touch- downs to whip the Winston Churchill Bulldogs Zl-11 in Southern Alberta High School Football League action at Hen- derson Friday night. The victory gave the defend- ing champion Cougars sole pos- session of first place in the west division of the SAHSFL with two straight wins. In last night's contest, the Bulldogs played a strong first half, but seemed to go flat In the second. Perhaps the 40 m.p.h. wind look its toll on the Bulldogs more than on the Cougars. The Bulldogs opened the scor- ing with less than a minute re- maining in the first half of play. Cyril Patson's field goal at- tempt from the Cougars' 20- yard line went wide of the markers, but the ball landed deep enough in the end zone to force the Cougars to give up a single point. The Cougars quickly took over the ball on their own 25-yard line- and on the first play, full- back Joe Meli galloped 72 yards to the Bulldogs' 13-yard line. Bob Parkyn got the nod on the next play and moved the ball to the Bulldogs' five-yard line. Meli look the call on the next play, but the Bulldogs' defence held tough and stopped his charge. The gun sounded soon after, leaving the Bulldogs with couldn't muster up an offen- sive attack. The Bulldogs were forced to punt, but a bad snap caused Patson to fumble the ball, giv- ing the Cougars possession on the 30-yard line. On the Cougars' first play, Guy Pomahac pulled in a pass from Kostiuk to score the ma- jor. Dudas was good on his con- vert attempt, giving the Coug- ars a 14-1 lead. The Bulldogs took possession of the ball on their own 40-yard alter the kick-off, but gave up the ball on their first play as Paul Zook intercepted quarter- back Derek Redman's pass. Four plays later, the Cougars finished off their scoring with Fomahac scooting across the goal line from 29 yards out. SULLY SAYS -By Pal Sullivan a slim 1-0 margin. Both clubs came out as strong as ever to start the second half of play, but the strong wind and the Cougars' persistence finally paid off. Midway through the third quarter, Bob Parkyn plunged over from the Bulldogs' four- yard line to give the Cougars the lead for the first time in the ball game. Bill Dudas' convert altempt was good, increasing the Cou- gars' lead to' 7-1. After the kick-off, the Bull- dogs had possession of the ball on their own 44-yard line, but J HAVE TO ADMIT IT, the Lethbridge and Dis- trict Exhibition people do come up with some very bright ideas. When the locals took over from the Western Can- ada Racing Association they were, lo say the least, babes in arms. Their experience in handling a race meet was next to nil. I recall Andy Andrews and Dick Gray telling me "we have a lot to learn, but then again we have some fresh new ideas that will make things easier." Well, ideas they have had and more seem to be in the offing. For the meet during Whoop-Up Days, Art Wil- liams ami Jim Doyle put their heads together and built a new finish line. Patterned exactly after the one at the finish line for the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, the new finish added just another touch ot, shall we say class, to Whoop-Up Downs. The paddock area was painted and flowers were planted to tidy up the area. Just little things but as they say, every little bit helps. Television monitors were put up under the grand- stand. The bettors don't even have to go out and watch the race if they so desire, they can watch it on closed circuit television. Dudas was successful on his third convert attempt as the gun sounded to end the quarter. With a comfortable 21-1 lead, Dahl used his second string of- fensive and defensive units fre- quently during the final quarter. The Bulldogs took advantage of the move and managed a converted touchdown, a 30-yard single and a two-point safety touch. Ken Nakama, who was used sparingly on offence, tallied the Bulldog's lone touchdown as hauled in Redman's pass to complete a 38-yard pass-and- run play. Kakama also led the Bulldogs in yardage gained as he chew- ed up 56 yards on six carries. Meli paced the Cougars, pick- ing up 122 yards on the ground while Pomahac and Parkyn added 73 and 36 yards respec- tively. All told, the Cougars' of- fenCe racked up 263 yards on the ground on 49 plays while the Bulldogs managed 76 yards on 29 attempts. Cougars also got the edge on first downs, with 13 to the Bull- dogs' six. The Bulldogs led in the penal- ty department, losing 75 yards on nine infraclions, while the Cougars were assessed 60 yards on 11 fouls. EXTRA DOWNS The Bull- dogs are wasting Ken Nakama's talents by using him sparingly on offence Meli was the Cougars' workhorse last night while Parkyn usually sat back without too much to do Bulldogs' quarterback, Derek Redman, threw some perfect passes, but the receivers start- ed to run before catching the ball may help clear Ihe picture atop the league. The Bombers are host to the ilampeders while league-leacl- ng Edmonton Eskimos venture into Regina to meet Saskalche- wan Roughriders Sunday. Ed- monton now has 12 points fol .owed by Saskatchewan and Winnipeg each with 10 points, Calgary with four and B.C. Lions with two. Duncan spent hours Friday night exchanging jokes with re- porters. Who will start as the Siampeder signal-caller againsl Winnipeg? ''Barclay Allen. Why not Bar- clay Allen? He's listed as quarterback." Duncan admitted a certain amount of complacency may have set in following Calgary's pre-season victory over the Ca nadian Football League All stars, but refused to attribute the Stampeders' problems to that. Meanwhile success didn't spoil Jsck Gotta or Jerry Williams The respective coaches of Ot lawa Rough Riders and Ham ilton Tiger-Cats are going with the same lineups that regis tered victories in Eastern Foot ball Conference action a week ago. Tha Riders tripped up Mon treal Alouetles 38-23 while Hamilton nipped Toronlo Argo nauts 22-18. This afternoon at Lansdown Park in Ottawa, it was the rug ged Rough Rider defence agaii trying lo smiff out Hamilton' exciting offence spearheadec by rookie quarterback Chuc Ealey. The other weekend game 1 the cast goes tomorrow at Mon treal where the Als host t British Columbia Lions in a interlocking Canadian Foolba League game to be seen o CBC's national network. Both games are scheduled fo noon MDT kickoff. as a target. The wide re- ceiver is out with a shoulder in- ury. Johnny Unitas goes for he Colts needing only 63 pass- ng yards to reach the incred- bl'e total of 22 720 in his career. Ken Stabler may start at quarteiback for the Raiders in >lace of Daryle Lamonica. And f he gets the ball from rookie Dzive Dalby, it means centre Jim Otto's streak of 168 games will be broken. Cid Edwards is a doubtful starter lor San with Lee While and Mike Garrett doing the running, the Charters will hardly be slow. Keoii owes Nationals OTTAWA (CP) Ottawa Na- tionals of the World Hockey As- sociation said Friday that centre Dave Keon of Toronto Maple Leafs owes them Doug Jlichel, a club co- owner, said Keon accepted the money when he signed a letter of intent to play for the Nation- als provided they could agree to a contract. Michel said that Keon, after signing with the National Hockey League Leafs, refused to return the money. According to Michel, the money was an advance on salary. He had offered Keon a five-year pact worth million. Keon was to get if Nats failed to Ice a club. He was to keep the advance it the club backed away from the deal. "We were ready, willing and able to sign said Michel. Michel said the cheque .he personally gave to Keon was made out to the player's law- This was the only change thai I didn't agree with. Why should the news media have to sit up ill the stands with the.wind howling 40 odd miles an hour while the bettors relax in the comfort of the grand- stand? I can remember one year where Brent Seely and I were the only ones in the stands watch- ing the races. The snow was blowing and the wind howling but the pari-mutuels still had a day. Seriously though, the exhibition officials have made it their business to accommodate the fans for both the Fall Race Meet and the six-day Whoop-Up Days show. This year's Fall Race Meet will be no exception. As a matter of fact, it should be the best ever if the weather stays reasonably warm and the snow stays away. Twelve days of. racing are on lap with just a slight change in the format. Tuesdays have never been that big a day at the muluel windows so this fall, commencing next Friday afternoon at two, there will be no races on either Tuesday or the last Thurs- day. However, the ponies will run three Saturdays as well as Thanksgiving Monday. Curling Club opens Oct. 16 The 1972-73 Lcthbridgc Men's Curling Club will officially open ils new season Monday, Oct. 16. A membership drive is cur- rently on and anyone interested in curling this winter can reg- ister Monday thru Friday from five until nine each evening. Memberships may also he ob- tained by writing the Curling Club or phoning 327-1213. Interested curlers can regis- ter as a team, partial team or individually. A stag night is planned early in Oct. but the date has not yet been set. Tiiis year's Rain- bow Bonspiel, the first major event of the year, i-s set for Dec. 1, 2 and 3. yer. Thus when Keon said he had received no money from Nats, technically he was right. But the cheque was cashed, Michel noted. "Keon is such a gentleman and I have so much respect for him, I hate to go through all the Ottawa owner said. "Keon has been a hero to me all my life." It was a lot of money but on moral grounds alone Nats would take any le- gal steps necessary to have it returned, Michel said. One of the added'attractions for this year's meet will be an education day. Yes, you read it right. No longer will any bettor he able to say he didn't know the procedure of placing a bet. Officials and personel of the Exhibition will be on hand. Sunday Sept. 24 to explain race procedure. The entire setup will be explained from start to finish. Anyone interested will get the whole story from the time the horse enters the paddock until he crosses the finish line. There is no secret to the operations of a race track, and in most all the rules are just ordin- ary> good, common sense. Education Day at Whoop-Up Downs Is sanction- ed by both the Alberta Racing Association and the RCMP. As far as local officials know, this is the first time this type of thing has ever been done in Canada. I may not know everything there is to know about belting and handicapping a race but I do know plenty about the special day proceedings set for Thanksgiving Day, Oct. 9. This is all about breakfast. On the morning of the last day of the meet there will be a special breakfast at the Exhibition Pavil- ion. The grub, and according to Andy Andrews there will be plenty of it, will be served for per psr person. There will be two guest speakers, one is Morris Taylor of the WCRA while the other has yet to be confirmed. These are just litlle things but they are all done with you, the racing fans, in mind. So I expect to see you at the Fall Race Meet and after you have had your education I expect to see a good many of you at the winning ticket wicket, cashing in. One last tip. If the jockey on your favorite horse is carrying his lunch and a flashlight, forget it._____ In by GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD. Here's a surprising {act.
