Ferguson did come into dressing room corridor for a short time and summed up the reversal with: "We played 50 minutes of you've got lo play 60 minutes against this club." Sinden, ho said, was "in- don't think he'll out." "Every hockey club has a let- down of four or five minutes In every game. It's inevitable.

Rick Collier, who came up with an outstanding game lor the Rams last night, put on the Scoreboard midway through the first quar-er with a successful 28 yard ield goal. Corby Pankhurst increased he lead to 9-0 in the late stages of Iho second quarter as he galloped 50 yards up the middle for the major. Collier completed the play with the convert and gave the tarns a 10-0 lead going into the second half. The two clubs battled it out evenly for most of the third quarter, but the Bulldogs made one costly mistake that increased their deficit. With less than two minutes remaining in the third quarter, he Bulldogs had a situation on their own is-yard inc. On the first play, Bulldogs' halfback Brian Clampilt tried :o scoot around the left end, but dropped the ball in the process. An alert Dave Howe of the Rams quickly picked up the fumble and Irolted across the goal line for the touchdown. Collier was good on his second convert attempt and Rams sat comfortably with a 17-0 lend. Howe came back with the Rams' final touchdown in the lale stages of the fourlh quarter on a 10-yard jaunt. Collier missed the convert at-lempt, but made up for it with a 19-yard field goal with less (ban three minutes remaining in the game.

Sorry, they caught Ihe Rams roughing up (he kicker on one bliacirm, Alexander Gusev and Vladimir Vikulov. Both clubs stumbled througl i.hc first 10 minutes until Team Canada seemed to settle down, forcing the Soviet squad into errors. The pros left the ice at the end of the first period with a 1-0 lead on Farise's goal, set up by Gilbert Perreault and Ron Gilbert, at Parise scored from directly in front of goalie Vladislav Tretyak, from about 20 feet out. Clarke, assrsted by Henderson, put Canada up 2-0 early in the second, taking the pass from the corner and tuck in the puck between the goalie's legs Hend erson rii ade i t 3-0 midway through the period when ho deflected in a pass from the boards with Guy Lap-ointe and Clarke drawing the assists. The period ended that way, but not before Henderson was knocked unconscious by a check, from Alexander Mallsev. "It's a good thing ho was wearing that said team doctor Jim Murray between periods. Henderson is the only one on the squad who wears head gear, although all the Russians do. Blinov's goal came when Vladimir Petrov fed him the puck up the ice and defen-ceman Pat Stapleton fell trying to get back into the play. Henderson made it 4-1 for Canada on a similar play-staying up the ice and taking the pass from Clarke.

At the opening of the games, the news agency Tass said, "it was difficult for the Canadian players lo maintain the swift tempo set by the Soviet play- ers." "But it added, Canadians managed to slow down the tempo to their advan- tage since they are not as swift as the Soviet players." Pravda, the Communist party daily, said: "We saw the Cana- dians in their best condition last night. The whole game was a lesson for us. We must take advantage of our speed and passing just in the last period." The Soviet defence ministry newspaper, Red Star, said "our guests learned a lesson from the first four games. Last night they put up a far more solid and accurate defence." The last three games of the series will be played here Sept. 24, 26 and 28.
