The victory pushed Uic Bull- dogs into a third place tie with Mohawks in the six-team league, both with 1-2 records. Only Catholic Central Cougars lead the league with an impressive 3-0 record while the LCI Rams and the McCoy Colts of Medi- cine Hat share second place with 2-1 records. The Medicine Hat Cresent Heights Vikings sit in the cellar unable to earn a victory in three starts. A poor crowd of some 500 spectators took in the one-sided affair at Henderson Saturday night. It should now bo appar- two clubs share top spot The Raymond Comets and St. Mary's Warriors are the only teams yet to taste defeat hi the Western Eieht Football League as they picked up easy victories over the weekend. Silverberg wins sixth golf title EDMONTON (CP) Doug Silverberg of Calgary coasted to his sixth Alberta amateur golf tille Saturday as he won by eight strokes over Ken Tamke of Edmonton. Silverberg had a three-iBider- par G9 in the final round of the 54-hole event to finish with a tolal of 212. Tamke had a two-over-par 74 for 220. Keilh Alexander of Calgary closed strongly with a one- under-par 71 to finish at 221, deadlocked with 21-year old Bandy Torgerson of Medicine Hat. Torgerson had a 75 Satur- day. Hick Collier of Edmonton, two strokes behind Silverberg going into the final round, slumped to an 00 for 225. Norm Gray of Calgary, Wil- lington Cup member along with Silverberg and Alexander this year, shot a final-round 74 for 224. Silverberg started with two birdies on the first three holes and was never in trouble after that. Alexander mounted a slight charge going three under par the first nine holes, but faded on the back nine (or his one- under-par 71. Meanwhile in Nanton the Knights earned their first vic- tory in three years of compe- tition downing High River 21-19. The Raymond Cornels like the St. Mary's Warriors showed no mercy against their opposition trouncing Claresholm 59-19. The Warriors blanked Milk River 35-0. Morris Anecka was unstop- pable as he rushed for five big louchdowns to sink the host Claresholm club Saturday after- noon. John Jaswieczic and Tim Court chipped in with two ma- jors apiece. For Claresholm, Jeff Lind- say, Stewart Derochie and Ryan Taitanger managed one touchdown apiece. In Cardston, the Warriors had no problems disposing of Uie Milk River Ridge Riders. Pat Twigg led the Warriors attack with two majors while ent lhat these Saturday night encounters can't attract as many fans as the SAHSFL would like loo. Like Friday night's contest between the Rams and the Cou- gars, blocked kicks proved to be the crucial thing. The Cougars eventually turn- ed three blocked kicks into louchdowns to trounce the Rams 33-7. On the Mohawks' first series of offensive plays, linebacker Bruce Mickie pounced on a loose ball in the Mohawks' end zone after a blocked punt tempt, to give the Bulldogs an early 6-0 lead. Ceril Patson clicked on his convert try pushing the score to 7-0. On another play, the Bulldogs managed to block another punl attempt and recovered the ball on the Mohawks' one yard line. On the next play Brian Clam- petl barraged across for the major. Patson's convert attempt was good for the extra point. Brian Veres was the o nl y other Bulldog to score a major as he scooted across the goal line from 15 yards out. The Bulldogs were really never threatening lo suffer their straight loss of the season as they held quarter leads of 7-0, 14-0 and 20-0. The Mohawks only touchdown came on the last play of the game as Brian Meier pulled in a yard pass for the major. Doug Nakama was the lead- ing rusher for the Bulldogs again picking up 53 yards on 12 carries. Brian Veres was right behind chewing up 41 yards on six at- tempts.
