Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta g TH( tnHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, September 20, 1971---------------- Eskimos can I gel things going The emphasis was on offence in Winnipeg By THE CANADIAN IMIESS The defence put the only touchdown on tho board in Ed- monton liul it was all offence in Winnipeg as weekend action in the Western Football Confer- ence turned the race for playoff spots inlo a two-team least for the moment. In Edmonton, Saskatchewan Houghridcrs took advantage of an inept display by Uie Eskimo offence and a toiifhdown by tnc- klc1 Ed jMcQuarlcrs to win 19-3 Saturday niglit. In Winnipeg Sunday Urilish Colnnibira Lions matched (lie heroics of Winni- peg quarterback Don Jons'] and flanker Jim Thorpe to battle Bombers to a 31-31 stalemate. The results left Roughriders in second place in the WFC with a W record, six points behind first-place Calgary Stampeders and one point ahead nf the Bombers. However, Bombers, i arc have played I more games than both Saskat- chewan and B.C. Lions have seven points en three wins and a tie in nine games. The loss for cellar-dwelling Eskimos, their ninth in 10 starts, further dimmed tlieir chances of capturing one of tire three playoff positions. Bombers move to Vancouver I next Saturday to renew their fight with Lions for third place in the west, while Eskimos have a rematch against Roughriders in Rcgina. Jonas had a afternoon i'or with a field goal, a loudidown, three converts and a single. Thorpe scored Uiree touchdowns. Running back Larry Ilighbaugh scored two touchdowns for the Lions and Fullback Jim Evenson and Lach Herron scored one apiece. Ken Spectacular debut (or Pluukel.1. Series of upsets in NFL openers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rookie quarterbacks Jim Plunkelt and Archie Manning made spectacular pro debuts to spice an incredible opening Sun- dav in the National FootbaT League. Plunkett and Manning, the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in last January's pro draft, led New England Patriots and New Orle- ans Saints to the two most start- ling upsets on an opening day replete with surprises. Plunkett, the Heisman Trophy winner from Stanford, threw two touchdown passes as the Pats stunned Oakland Raiders 20-6. Maiming, who starred for Mississippi in college, sprinted around left end frorn the one- yard line on the last play o! the game to give the Saints an as- tounding 24-20 upset over Los Angeles Rams. Another rookie, comerback Tom Hayes from San Diego State, played a major role as At- lanta Falcons humbled the fa- vored San Francisco '49ers 20- 17.

U.S. recaptures Ryder Cup ST. LOUIS (AP) America has retained its grip on the Ryder Cup but none other than golf's latest superstar, Lee Trevino, believes the British are coming. Trevino, a modern Paul Re- vere, sounded the warning after a United States team studded with the game's biggest names fought off'Great Britain 1814- in cup matches ending Sat- urday. "The difference was just two or three matches." said non- playing captain Jay Hebert, WRESTLING TONIGHT! P.M.

Britons to whom Trevino and Hebert referred include Peter Oosferhuis, a 23-year-old giant who Saturday afternoon de- feated Arnold Palmer. While Oosterhius was trim- ming the leg weary Palmer, 22-year-old Scotsman Bernard Gallacher was handing Masters champ Charles Coody a 2-1 de- feat. U.S. WIN IS ISlli Tile U.S. viclon, the coun- try's loth in series of matches, was already sealed when Brian Earned loppled I Miller Barber 2 and 1 and 29- year-old Harry Banner man nudged 44-year-old Gardner Dickinson by the same score. Another British star, 27-year- old Tony Jacklin, had a luckless three days in cup competition but is certain to be a thorn for America in future matches. "The British could have won this. And in 10 years I tlu'nk they'll win it here and win it at home, warned Trevino. Plunkett's first scoring pass in the second half was a 33-yar- der to Ron Sellers and the sec- ond a 20-yarder to Tom Beer. Four interceptions of John Brodie passes coupled with two Atlanta scoring passes from Bob Berry to Ken Bui-row, helped the Falcons upset the '49ers. But it was the rookie "Mr. Hayes" as coach Norm Van Brocklin called him, who pre- served the Falcons' triumph. He scooped up a fumble in the last three seconds on a play that erupted into a brawl as players from both benches pilled on to the field. A 20 yard run by Mike Garrett, a former Chief, gave the Chargers their victory over Kansas City. The Chiefs led 14-0 at halflin-.e, but the Chargers rallied to tic on two touchdown passes by John Hadl before Garrett's winning scamper. Down 42-24, the Packers al- most pulled if out against the Giants, but an interception by linebacker Jim Files with left preserved the New Yorkers' triumph. Dan Devine, Green Bay's new coach, suffered a broken leg on the sidelines in the last quarler when Doug Hart of tie Packers was shoved out of bounds near the Green Bay bench while run- ning back an interception- De- vine was caught in the pileup. The Minnesota Vikings play at Detroit tonight in a televised game over the ABC network, at 6 p.m. MST. Short may acquire needed votes BOSTON (AP) "American League baseball club owners are sclieduled to meet in Boston Tuesday amid indications they'll give Bob Shurt the neces- sary votes to move Washington Senators to Dallas-Fort Worth, if he asks for them. would need nine of the 12 votes, including his own, and The Associated Press has learned that he has them. The controversial owner indl cated Saturday, however, that he might not make the request to switch locations, adding he might not be in the baseball business by the. end of the meet- ing. "I may be the owner when the meeting begins, but proha- bly not when it Short said in a telephone interview from his Minneapolis home. There's not a person here or person coming to that meeting who knows what's going to hap- Short said, adding that he has not received a firm offer for the team. Aiked to confirm published re-ports thai he would not ask for permission to move the team. Short said: "Anything is possible, but I don't think I will ask." The a.m. meeting has been called in Boston, where league president Joe Cronin has his offices, to discuss the future of Short and the Senators. The newspaper says Short has established credit with two Dal- las banks and has never taken seriously any offers to purchase :ie club, including one from Jo- seph Danzansky, president of the Washington Board of Trade. LETHBRIDGE MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 st p.m. ADAMS ICE CENTRE All those Interested ore oskod to attend this meeting for election of executive, etc. REGISTRATION OF BOYS Wishing lo play in Ihe Lethbrldge Miner Hockey Astoclation will continue unlil Oct. 2 p.m.-9 p.m. Adams Ice Centre Phillips kicked three convcrls and two singles and Ted Gerela counted two singles. Besides McQuarters1 touch- down, the Houghridcrs had a convert and four field goals by Abendschan. Dave Cutler kicked a field goal for the Eski- mos. Despite the passing of Jonas, who completed 23 o[ 36 Losses for 450 yards and Ihe calching of Thorpe, who pulled in seven aerials for 227 yards and Ihree touchdowns, Bombers needed Jonas' last-second field goal to gain Lhe tie with Lions and their outstanding rookie quarterback Don Moorhead. "We were fortunate to get the tie. I was real pleased with the way the boys played, Liu's being our third game in nine said Bomber head coach Jim Spavital. Lions coach Eagle Keys said Moorhead, who was making only his second start, gave the offence "more fire" than it has displayed before, "but that de- fence Keys also was unhappy with an off-side penalty Uiat gave Jonas the chance lo lie Ihc score. With two seconds left on the clock Jonas tried one from the 33-yard line that was wide, but Highbaugh. scut in to try lo scoot through and block the placement attempt, lined up off- side. Kicking again from the 28, Jonas made it good, capping a 13-point afternoon that consisted of the field goal, a two-yard touchdown run, three cnnverls and a single on a wide field goal attempt. Thorpe's three touchdowns came on pass-and-rua plays of 82, 77 and 32 yards, and gave the former Toronto Argonaut 1.098 yards gained on 46 recep- tions, within 28 yards of the all- time Bomber mark set in 1959 by the late Ernie Pitts. Lions, behind the short pass- ing game of Moorhead and a grinding running attack, sur- prised many of the spec- tators in Winnipeg Stadium with the seeming ease with which they marched through Winni- peg's defence. Moorhead completed 11 of 17 passes for 144 yards, Highbaugh made 101 yards and two touch- downs on 12 cames and full- back Evenson carried 25 times for 133 yards, including a four- yard touchdown plunge. Moorhead threw seven yards to Herron for another B.C. major. At Edmonton, Eskimo quart- erbacks Larry Lawrence and Bruce Lemmerman disap- pointed fans by throwing a total of seven interceptions. Lawrence also let a jump-pass attempt slip from his Krip at Edmonton's three-yard line and McQuarters picked it off and went in for the game's only touchdown. The defence was again in the. spotlight and a professional football record was established in weekend games in the East- ern Conference of the Canadian Football League. Cornerback Dick Thornton got UK seventh touchdown intercep- tion of his 12-year-career as To- ronto Argonauts clubbed the Rough Riders Sunday 20-17 in Ottawa and Hamilton Tiger- Cats rallied hi Uie last minute at home Saturday night to edge Montreal Alouettes 10-9. Thornton's first of three inter- ceptions before disgrun- tled Ottawa fans increased his total to one more than the sis credited to Herb Adderly of Green Bay Packers of the Na- tional Football League, with 1 whom he previously shared the j record. His performance helped HE Argos improve their Lctal to 14 points, six more than Montreal and Hamilton, tied for second with eight points each. Ottawa trails wiUi six. TWO QUARTEMACKS HURT Starting quarterbacks Greg Barton of the Argos and Rick Cassata of the Riders were both knocked out of the game by in- juries. Cassata suffered a concussion late in Hie first luilf a.nd was taken lo hospital for x-rays. lie was expected lo remain over- night for observation. Barton broke a small tone in the little finger of his throwing tiand, also in the opening half, uid went to the sidelines after .wo sequences in the third quarter. Tills forced Argo Coach Leo Caiiill lo abandon his quart- erback rotation and Joe Thcis- niann directed the team for Uie remainder of Uie game. Dave Buchanan's touchdown, converted by Tommy-Joe Coffcy wilh eight seconds lo play, prov- ided the Ticals with victory and stopped the rush lo I lie exits by many of the fans at Ham- ilton. "They're Uie luckiest Icam T ever said Montreal coach Sum Etchcverry. "last lime we were here we ran Uicm all over the field and wo only win 12.0.
