Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Rams stop Bulldog with strong effort Saturday, September LETHBRIDGE By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams grabbed sole possession of first place in the western conference of the Southern Alberta High School Football League by scoring a 25-7 verdict over the spirited Winston Churchill Bulldogs Friday night. The victory before some 800 fans at Henderson Stadium lifted the defending champion to a 2-0 record while the loss left the Bulldogs holding se- cond at 1-1. Third place in the three- team west conference is held by the Catholic Central Cougars, who'll be seeking their first win of the season tonight. The Cougars suffered a 35-0 loss to the Bulldogs in their season opener last weekend and hope to hit the winning trail by upending" Medicine Hat McCoy Colts in an interlocking league encounter tonight. Game time is slated for eight o'clock at Henderson. Meanwhile in last night's tilt, the hard-nosed Rams were propelled by three key figures to hand the Bulldogs their first setback of the young season. Rick Collier led the way rambling across the goal line for two touchdowns while Randy Stevens booted two All ends up promoting TORONTO (CP) Muham- mad Ali arrived Friday to pro- mote a boxing match, but end- ed up promoting himself. Ali is to be one of the ring- side commentators for today's world welterweight ti- tle fight between champion Jose Napoles of Mexico and challenger Clyde Gray of Toronto. Ali, former world Heavy- weight champ, held a news conference ostensibly to promote today's card at Maple Leaf Gardens, but the welterweights were soon forgotten in a flurry of Ali's "I'm the greatest" boasts. ''I seen his face somewhere." was Ali's reply when he was asked if he had ever seen Gray fight. Ali said he hasn't seen Na- poles fight either but said he'd pick the champ to retain his ti- tle "because I've heard more about him than the other guy." Then reporters' questions turned to Ali's future plans, which the 31-year-old fighter said included a rematch with .Joe Frazier and an eventual meeting with current cham- pion George Foreman. Rookies hot By The CANADIAN PRESS Rookies and goaltenders shared the spotlight as the Na- tional Hockey League's ex- hibition schedule got into full swing Friday. Dave Forbes, who played most of last season with Okla- homa City of "the Central Hockey League, scored twice to lead Boston Bruins to a 5-3- victory over Montreal Canadiens at Moncton, N.B. Two other rookies, Dave Hynes and Chris Oddleifson, also scored for Boston with Greg Sheppard adding the fifth goal. Guy Lafleur, Chuck Lefley and Yvan Cournoyer scored for Canadiens. In other games Pittsburgh Penguins edged New York Islanders 3-2. Atlanta Flames beat Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0, Vancouver Canucks downed Los Angeles Kings 5-4, and Detroit Red Wings nipped St. Louis Blues 3-2. Newcomers Wayne Bianchin and Bob MacManama scored for Pitt- sburgh who also got a goal from Greg Polis. Bob Nyst- rom and Craig Cameron scored for the Islanders before some fans at Brantford, Ont. GOALIE SUPERB At Ottawa, the superb goal- tending of Dan Bouchard helped Atlanta shut out Toron- to. Bouchard and team-mate Phil Myre, who shared the goaltending, kicked out a total of 33 shots. Rookie Tom Lysiak and John Lemieux scored before 7.643 fans. Goalie Gary Smith, ac- quired in an off-season trade with Chicago Black Hawks, played brilliantly for Van- couver giving up one goal to the Kings before being reliev- ed by Ed Dyck halfway through the game. Orland Kurtenbach, Bob Schmautz, Don Lever, Bryan McSheffrey and Gerry O'FIaherty scored for the Ca- nucks. Bob Berry led Los Angeles with a pair and Don Kozak and Randy Rota had singles. The game was played in Calgary before fans. Details" of the Detroit-St. Louis game at Flint, Mich., were unavailable. Held goals and a convert and Ross Wakelyn added a solo major. Collier opened the scoring in the ball game as he blasted his way across the goal line from the Bulldogs' 10-yard line ear- ly in the first quarter. Quarterback and place- kicker Stevens took over from there as he successfully booted the convert attempt and then added a 16-yard field goal midway through the se- cond quarter. The half time score (10-0) could possibly have read 17-7 but a pair of touchdowns, one for each club, were called back on account of penalties. The Bulldogs were the first ones to see their touchdown nullified being called on a clipping infraction. Bulldogs' quarterback Derek Redman and flanker Todd Poberznick had set up the touchdown play by marching from their own 35- yard line to the Rams' 10-yard line on two successive pass- and-run plays. Jerry Areshenko took over from there and scooted around left end for the major score only to see it called back. The clipping infraction left the Bulldogs with a first down and 25-yard situation and Redman decided to go to the air. Rams' defensive and Wakelyn keyed on the play and picked off the attempted pass and galloped 86 yards for the touchdown. But this time the Rams were charged for illegal use of hands and the ball was brought back. In the third quarter, Stevens increased the gap to 13-0 with a 20-yard field goal but the margin wasn't to last as the Bulldogs final hit pay-dirt. After earning their second first down play, Redman teammed up with Poberznick once again and fired a perfect 47-yard pass-and-run play for six points. Ken Duce made it 13-7 by notching his sixth consecutive convert of the year. Last weekend. Duce went five-for- five which set a new league record. The Rams came back on the next sequence of plays as Stevens and Wakelyn connected for a pass-and-run play of their own that went 60 yards. The final touchdown of the contest came with little than two minutes remaining when Collier picked his way through behind his blockers for a 65- yard major. Collier paced the Rams over-all ground game with 138 yards in 13 carries while Mark Baldry added 51 yards in 11 tries. Areshenko led the Bulldogs on the ground with 54 yards in 15 attempts. Skating pro arrives Jan Ullmark, right, of Froson, Sweden, arrived in Lethbridge Davis, was men's singles champion in Thursday to take over as club professional for the Lethbridge Fi- well as the Scandinavian champion in gure Skating Club.

Lions need a victory Sunday to keep their Western Football Conference playoff hopes alive while Calgary Stampeders will be bent on topping off Wayne Harris Day in style. The Stampeders will be out to win for "The Thumper" who became everybody's all- star middle linebacker during his 12 years with Calgary. Special half-time ceremonies are planned for the Calgary great whose career was ended last season by a neck injury. A victory would give Calgary a 5-4 record and a four-point lead over the fourth-place Lions. Toe problems plague both clubs. B.C. running back Johnny Musso is on the limp with a toe sprain and Stampe- der defensive end Craig Koin- zan is nursing a similar ail- ment. Musso. considered the. key to the Lion ground game, has spent the last week trying to break in a special plastic cast support that protects the sore toe. He injured it in a losing cause against Montreal Alouettes Sept. 11. Koinzan's toe. injured Aug. 28 in a game against B.C.. hasn't responded well to treat- ment and if the big end isn't able to play, coach Jim Duncan may have to go short an import and use backup man Jim Bond on a regular basis. OTHERWISE HEALTHY Aside from Koinzan's in- jury, the Stampeders are healthy and if they can put together a consista'nt ground game to complement the po- tent aerial attack of quarter- back Peter Liske, they may do Harris proud. Calgary's ground attack could be boosted in future games if fullback Don Mahi, 23, a University of Hawaii product, cut by Montreal, is signed after his five-day tryout. The Stampeders have been after the hefty running back since Jesse Mims was in- jured early in the season. It is not known when Mims will return to play. Although B.C. may loose Musso this game, they still have a strong threat in runn- ing backs "Monroe Eley and Lou Harris. But the team's aerial attack may suffer if starting quarterback Don Moorhead can't play. Moorhead reinjured a sepa- rated shoulder in Tuesday's game against Winnipeg Blue Bombers and team medics are taking a wait-and-see attitude. If he can't play, the Lions will go with either im- port Karl Douglas or Cana- dian Eric Guthrie. When Joe Theismann last appeared in Montreal on Labor Day. he had some un- kind remarks for the people who draw up the Canadian Football League schedule. The Toronto quarterback was irritated because the Argonauts came into Montreal five days after they had played in Edmonton against the Eskimos. "The officials who make up the schedule have no concern for the players." Theismann said. "There is no way we can prepare for games properly when they are that close to- gether." This Sunday, the Argonauts, who lead the East with a 5-2-1 record, will be coming to Mon- treal after losing to Runners look good By The ASSOCIATED PRESS You remember 1972 the National Football League's Year of the Runner. Well, say hello to 1973 and what looks like an instant replay for those guys who lug the ball through the line. Nine NFL runners gained 100 or more yards in last week's openers and will be looking for more yardage Sun- day. Dallas coach Tom Landry will have that same magic number on his mind 24 hours later, but he's thinking about victories and not yards. Landry will be shooting for career coaching victory No. 100 when he sends the Cow- boys against New Orleans Saints Monday. Only nine other NFL coaches have reached that plateau. Miami's defending Super Bowl champions also are after a magic number of their own. The Dolphins have won 18 con- secutive regular season games, tying the NFL record set by Chicago Bears in 1933- 34 and matched by the Bears in 1941-42. One more triumph would give them the record all to themselves. Oakland Raiders will try to spoil the plans. SIX ON TV Meanwhile, half of Sunday's 12 games will be available" to home fans on local television because they were sold out 72 hours before kickoff. That compares to nine of 12 games sold out and shown on home TV last week. Look for Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills to use more of the ground game that work- ed so well for those two teams in first game victories last week. Jim Bertelsen churned out 143 yards a'nd Larry McCutcheon added 120 last week for the Rams. They'll be going against Atlanta Sunday and the Falcons' offence was rather impressive, rolling up 62 points in its opening victory against New Orleans. Buffalo's 0. J. Simpson had the best day any running back in the history of the NFL ever had. rolling up 250 yards last week. His backfield partner, Larry Watki.ns. added an im- pressive 105. San Diego Charg- ers gets the assignment of try- ing to slow down these two Sunday. Last week's other 100-yard gainers were Miami's Larry Csonka with 104, Pittsburgh Steelers' John Fuqua at 100, Calvin Hill of Dallas with 130, rookie Terry Metcalf of St. Louis Cardinals at 133 and At- lanta's Dave Hampton at 104. The National Football Autoslalom on Sunday outcome of the Bobby Riggs Billy Jean King tennis battle is already having its effects. This Sunday afternoon, commencing at one, the Lethbridge Sports Car Club will be holding a Novice autoslalom. And get this, gals are invited to take part at half price.

SPORT FANS BET YOU KNOW By GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD. Did you ever stop to think about this oddity in pro foot- ball the men who lead pro football in scoring each year hardly ever handle the foot- ball themselves The lead- ing scorers the last few years have all been not runners or pass receivers anymore but the field goal kickers who rarely get a football in their hands. One of the unusual oddities in (ports Is that the only time the great horse Man 'O Wer ever lost a race, he was beaten by a horse named, oddly enough. Upset! Man 'O War (inished first in every race in hie career except for a race at Saratoga in 1919 when he finished second to Upset. Do you know where and when Hank Aaron hit the first home run of his major league career? It came on April 23. 1954 in St. Louis, off pitcher Vic Raschi.
