Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Stpttmbtr 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Rams, Bulldogs tangle tonight The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams will be out to even their Southern Alberta High School Football League record at 1-1 tonight at 8 p.m. when they meet the Winston Churchill Bulldogs at Henderson Stadium. The Rams dropped an 18- 9 decision to the Catholic Central Cougars in their first contest last weekend, while the Bulldogs blasted Medicine Hat's McCoy team 43-1 in their opener. Catholic Central will see action again Saturday night when they host Medicine Hat High for an eight o'clock tilt at Henderson. Coach Jim Whitelaw's Rams will be up against a potent passing attack centered around quarter- back Derek Redman when they tangle with the Bulldogs tonight, but they are expected to counter with a fierce pass rush and their usual solid ground game. With backs Jerry Areshenko and Greg Martin healthier this week however. Bulldog coach Pete Neufeld expects to go to a more balanced offense with less emphasis on the aerial attack. Meanwhile, two games tonight and three more Saturday highlight action this weekend in the Foothills Football Conference. Picture Butte will travel to Cardston tonight for an Eastern Division contest, while Claresholm plays host to High River in Western action. On Saturday, Raymond and Coaldale will tangle in an East Division tilt at Coaldale, and St. Mary's will travel to Nanton while Okotoks hosts Vulcan in West Division action. Picture Butte leads the East Division of the league with a 2-0 record, while High River and Okotoks head the West Division with similar 2-0 ledgers. Controversial clause absent in WCHL pacts EDMONTON (CP) The controversial clause which prompted members of the Ot- tawa 67s to refuse to sign their contracts recently does not appear in the contracts of junior hockey players in the Westejn Canada Hockey League, says League Com- missioner Ed Chynoweth. The clause demands that 20 per cent of the player's worth for the first three years of his professional life be returned to his last junior club as com- pensation. Members of the Ot- tawa 67s of the Ontario Hockey Association junior series were handed contracts with this stipulation Sunday and every player refused to sign. "We have no such clause in the contract in the Chynoweth said in a telephone interview from Saskatoon Wednesday. "If a player has an agent, we work out a deal with him to get development money for the junior club. "If the boy doesn't have an agent, we have an addendum to the player contract which suggests we get an agreeable sum for the junior club." The Quebec Junior Hockey League, meanwhile, is asking for a fee to be paid for a graduating junior and a 000 fee if he is under the nor- mal graduating age of 20. Chynoweth said none of the junior leagues has an agree- ment with the National Hockey League or the World Hockey Association, and this is the problem. "Our agree- ment terminated June 30 of this year. "The teams have to get development money somewhere. But we won't resort to the plan of taking a certain percentage of a player's pro contract." The WCHL commissioner said the Ontario Hockey Association may have been over-reacting because so many underage juniors were taken in the first year by the WHA. "They had no contracts at all at that time, and they couldn't force the WHA team to let the players finish out their junior careers. "We did. We've had contracts with the players for five years. So when Dennis Sobchuk was drafted by Cin- cinnati when he was 18, he had to play his last year with Regina. There was no question. We'd have gone to court to fight it. "We have no problems out here." College Rodeo names champions, executive Yankees, Orioles switch, Pirates trounce Cardinals THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baltimore Orioles are flying north in the American League East and New York Yankees are going south. Those teams appeared head- ed in those directions Thurs- day night following Baltimore's 7-0 rout of New York that gave the Orioles a half-game lead over the Yankees. "We're just making up for some bad baseball earlier in the said Dave McNally after pitching the Orioles to their 18th victory in the last 23 games. The Yankees, on the other hand, are making up for some good baseball late in the sea- son. After a recent surge, the Yankees lost their third straight game to the Orioles. Baltimore's suddenly- revitalized pitching staff has had something to do with the Yankee turnout. The Orioles' pitchers gave New York just four runs in the three-game series at Yankee Stadium. McNally gave the Yankees only three hits. HAD GOOD CONTROL "I had excellent control, by- far the best I've had all said the left-hander. In other American League games. Detroit Tigers ANDY CAPP defeated Boston Red Sox 3-1 and Kansas City Royals defeated Oakland A's 4-3 in 10 innings. In the National League, Pittsburgh Pirates whipped ,St. Louis Cardinals 8-6; Chicago Cubs turned back Philadelphia Phillies 74; Los Angeles Dodgers bombed San Diego Padres 11-2 and Cincin- nati Reds trimmed San Fran- cisco Giants 8-4. Don Baylor opened the scor- ing for Baltimore, smashing the first pitch of the fifth inn- ing from Rudy May, 6-4, over the fence in left-centre. The Orioles added two runs in the eighth inning on a run- scoring single by Paul Blair and an RBI double by Bobby Grich. They scored four more runs in the ninth, with Andy Etchebarren, Mark Belanger and Tommy Davis each singl- ing in a run and Grich knock- ing in another with a grounder. Vernon Ruble pitched two- hit ball for seven innings in his first major league start and Al Kaline closed in on life- time hits with a run-scoring single, lifting Detroit over Boston. The Red Sox' loss left them in third place, three games behind the Orioles. Ruble, a 20-year-old graduate of Olivet College in Michigan, beat Boston veteran Luis Tiant, who failed for the sixth straight time to gain his 21st victory. Kaline got his major league hit when he singled home a run in the first inning. Rookie Fred Lynn tied the game for the Red Sox with a home run in the second inning, but then the Tigers won it on Jim Nettles' two-run triple in the fourth. Amos Otis singled home the tie-breaking run in the 10th in- ning, giving Kansas City its victory over Oakland. The loss reduced the A's lead in the American League West to 4Vz games over the idle Texas Rangers. PIRATES CLOSING IN Willie Stargell hit a two-run double and Richie Hebner added a three-run homer, key- ing a seventh-inning rally that lifted Pittsburgh over St. Louis. The victory moved the Pirates within a half-game of the first-place Cardinals in the National League East. Ron Dunn drove in three runs and drilled three doubles and Bill Madlock knocked in two runs and collected three hits, leading Chicago over Philadelphia. The new executive for the upcoming Canadian Inter- collegiate Rodeo Association's season has been named, as well as the winners from the 1974 rodeo season.
