Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, September 30, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Southern Alberta weather rough on Gas City LCI Rams get on winning track By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A combination of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams and the Southern Alberta weather made for a pret- ty dreary evening for Medicine Hat's Crescent Heights Vikings Saturday at Henderson Park. The Rams unleashed an awesome running attack, and consistently came up with the big play on defence as they whipped the highly touted Vikings 23-7 for their first vic- toiy of the 1974 Southern Alberta Football League season. The Rams, who now sport a 1-2 season record, trail the Catholic Central Cougars and the Winston Churchill Bulldogs in the West division of the SAFL. The Bulldogs and Cougars played to a 7-7 draw Friday and both boast a 2-0-1 log. Playing in weather which alternated between sleet and heavy snow, the LCI built up a 21-7 lead by halftime, and coach Jim Whitelaw had cause for worry only once during the final 30 minutes. His boys appeared to have everything in control when the Vikings Jim Kobley blocked and recovered a Ram punt at the LCI 11-yard line just as the gun sounded to end the third quarter. However, Crescent Heights' chances to get back in the ball game were quickly doused as the Ram defence came up with one of its many clutch plays on the first play of the final frame. Almost as soon as Viking quarterback Perry Hehr received the snap, two charging LCI linemen belted him and knocked him loose from the ball. Roy Yorgason recovered for the Rams, and from that point it was just a matter of waiting out the clock. The Rarns set the tone for the game right off the bat when their defence held the visitors to one first down on their initial series. LCI promptly marched 73 yards in 12 plays for a major score. The Rams stuck mainly to the ground, and went to the air only once during their initial drive, that being on a third and six situation at the Viking 19 yard line. Quarterback Cam MacLennan hit Mark Baldry for an eight yard gain to keep the drive going, and on the next play, fullback Harvey Labuhn raced 11 yards up the mid- dle for the touchdown. Jim Schenk converted to give LCI a 7-0 lead. Following the kickoff, the Ram defence came up big again, as Colin Barnes recovered a Viking fumble at the Medicine Hat four yard line. Three plays later, Mark Baldry crashed over from the one and Schenk converted again to make the score 14-0 as the first quarter ended. Crescent Heights came to life somewhat in the second quarter as, with the wind at their backs, they managed to hem the locals in their owr. end on a pair of punt ex- changes. Starting then at the Ram 48 yard line, the Vikings needed only four plays to hit pay dirt, with big Tom Stevenson getting the major when he romped 26 yards around the end on a third and one situation. A two point convert attempt failed, and the score remained 14-6. The Viking comeback proved short lived when the Rams marched right back for another touchdown. Follow- ing a short kickoff, taken by the Rams Roy Yorgason on on his own 43-yard line, LCI took advantage of a crucial Viking penalty, and a successful fake punt attempt to maintain a drive which ended in a 19 yard touchdown run by Tracy Cooler. Schenk made good on his third straight conversion, and the Rams took a 21-6 lead which they held until Tom Stevenson booted the ball through the end zone on the final play of the half to give Crescent Heights their seventh point. The majority of the third quarter was played between the 30 yard lines as neither team could mount a drive in the heavy snow. Mark Baldry kicked a single for the Rams midway through the quarter, but neither team really threatened until the Vikings came up with their blocked punt as the gun sounded. However, the LCI defence quickly snuffed out the last Viking hopes, and Baldry added another single in the final frame to give the Rams their final 23-7 margin. The Ram rushing attack was truly outstanding. Led by Harvey Labuhn, who racked up 126 yards on 20 carries, LCI backs rushed 52 times for a total of 330 yards. Dwight Hudson was also outstanding for the Rams, picking up 91 yards on 22 carries, while Tracy Cooler am- massed 72 yards-on only six attempts. In contrast to the well balanced LCI backfield, the Vikings appeared to put all their eggs in one basket. Tom Stevenson ran for 166 of their 199 yards gained rushing. He accomplished that feat on 16 carries, and his nearest rival was Byron Hirsch with 18 yards on four carries. The Ram defence, outstanding throughout the contest, turned in a real team effort, with no one register- ing more than six tackles, but with almost everyone getting in on the act. Tracy Cooler and Dwight Hudson proved they can go both ways, as they led the parade with six and five tackles respectively. Richard Woo was next in line with four. YARDSTICKS Colin Barnes was the man in the right place at the right time Saturday... he recovered the fum- ble which set up the Rams' second touchdown, then intercepted a pass to end a promising Viking drive in the fourth quarter the Vikings had earlier defeated Medicine Hat High 61-0 and 50-6. but the consensus is that they can't handle a solid defence... the Rams will be out to better their 1-2 record next Friday when they host McCoy High at Henderson on Saturday, local fans can watch Medicine Hat High take on the Winston Churchill Bulldogs the other local team, the Catholic Central Cougars, will be in Medicine Hat Friday to face the Cres- cent Heights Vikings. Eley runs all over Hamilton Ti-Cats, Roughriders wallop Stampeders 34-10 CANADIAN PRESS Munroe Eley put on a daz- zling display of running and pass-catching Sunday as British Columbia Lions regained a share of first place in the Western Conference by overpowering Hamilton Tiger-Cats 32-10 in an interlocking Canadian Foot- ball League game in Van- couver. Eley scored two touchdowns and accounted for almost half of the Lions' total offence of 489 yards on 14 carries and 113 yards on three catches. The victory gave the Lions 14 points in 11 games to tie them with Edmonton Eskimos who have the same total in 10 contests. In other weekend CFL ac- tion, the Blue Bombers down- ed Montreal Alouettes 24-15 in Winnipeg Saturday and Saskatchewan Ruughriders defeated Calgary Stampeders 34-10 in Regina Sunday. B.C. got on the Scoreboard early in the first quarter with a single on a wide field goal attempt by Ivan MacMillan who kicked four converts and a 39yard field goal. Hamigton came back with a 24-yard field goal by Ian Sunter. SCORES FIRST TD The Lions jumped ahead 8-3 on the first play of the second quarter with Eley's 14-yard touchdown scamper. Then his 92-yard pass-and-run gave the Lions a 15-3 edge. Carney Henley hauled in a 23yard pass for the only Hamilton touchdown to make the score 15-10 at the half. A pass by quarterback Don Moorhead early in the third quarter gave Jim Young his fifth touchdown of the season and an 11-yard run by Lou Harris added thd other Lions touchdown. Calgary's loss all but crush- ed the Stampeders' hopes for a WFC playoff position. Roughrider quarterback Ron Lancaster hurled four touchdown passes to give Saskatchewan its second vic- tory in its last seven games. Newcomer Rheot Dawson and wide receiver Bob Pearce both beat Calgary defensive back Ozell Collier on long touchdown catches of 58 and 31 yards respectively. Lancaster also threw a five- yard touchdown pass to Bobby Thompson and a 20-yard, thirddown pass to Tom Cam- vana. Kicker Brian Berg converted all touchdowns and added field goals of 24 and 31 yards. The Stampeders' only scor- ing came on a one-yard run by quarterback Peter Liske and a convert and 25-yard field goal by Cyril McFall. The Riders' star fullback, George Reed, carried 26 times for 121 yards to give himself 1.065 yards for the record llth season of more than yards rushing.

Broncos lose 5-3 to Medicine Hat Tigers, open house Sunday a rousing success By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor MEDICINE HAT (Staff; For the first two periods Saturday night the Western Canada Hockey League ex- hibition game between Lethbridge Broncos and Medicine Hat Tigers may just as well have been the seventh game of a playoff series. Tigers, playing their seventh pre-season game, edged the Broncos 5-3 before faithful. The first 40 minutes of the game may just as well have been on a dance floor, all mo- tion and no action. Tigers out- shot the Broncos 14-9 over the first two periods and finished the game 26-16 up on shots. Saturday's third period restored the Medicine Hat patrons faith in excitement, particularly the final 10 minutes. The two clubs battled through a scoreless first period before the Tigers took a 2-1 second period advantage. Barry Dean paced the Tigers with two goals. His se- cond marker was rather meaningless as there was just 32 seconds left on the clock and the Broncos playing two men short. Darrell Durand, Don Mur- doch and Jeff Boychuk com- pleted the scoring for the Tigers. The line of Bryan Sutler, Alec Tidey and Bryan Trottier each scored one for the Bron- cos. Ken Holland and Jerry Farwell shared the net- minding duties for the 'Hat while Lome Molleken and Bill Oleschuk handled the Lethbridge goaltending. Broncos got the nod on eight of the 12 penalties whistled down in the game, including two of the four majors. Bryan Maxwell, a native of Lethbridge playing with the Tigers, got the nod on both Tiger majors as he took part in the only fights in the game. Early in the third period Maxwell took advantage of his size to easily decision rookie Tidey. However, the big Tiger defenceman bit off more than he could chew as he and Bronco rightwinger Archie Henderson dropped their gloves. Henderson, who had earlier smashed Maxwell into the end boards, gave Maxwell quite a licking. Coach Earl Ingarfield of the Broncos didn't show any dis- appointment in his cluD. "It was only our third game as compared to seven for the he said. "At least they know we're in the league." Broncos travel to Olds Wednesday night to meet the Edmonton Oil Kings in their final exhibition tilt. Meanwhile, Sunday after- noon at the Sportsplex, what was expected to be a small gathering more than pleased Bronco officials. "Just great" was the way Bill Burton, president of the club put it. Lethbridge Hockey Hounds and the young gals who will sell programs and usher at the Bronco home games greeted the gathering and escorted them through the new rink More than people, dur- ing the course of the after- noon, were reported to have gone through the Sportsplex. In other league action Saturday night Flin Flon Bombers doubled the score, 4- 2, on Calgary Centennials in Prince Albert and Kamloops Chiefs belted New Westminster Bruins 7-3. Sunday's games saw Regina Pats regain some of their Memorial Cup form as they blanked Saskatoon Blades 4-0" In the only other game Sunday the Bruins lost 5-0 to Seattle Totems of the Central Hockey League. Another listless victory, Team Canada edges Sweden GOTEBORG, Sweden (CP) Team Canada 74 pulled out its second listless exhibition victory in three days Sunday, then left shortly after noon aboard an Air Canada flight for Moscow for the last half of an international hockey series with Russia. The Canadians downed the Swedish national team 4-3 on a late goal by Frank Mahovlich after frittering away a three- goal lead in a game almost de- void of bodily contact. One ex- ception was a third-period penalty to Gordie Howe of Canada. He retaliated against Dan Soderstrom, whom the Canadian believed had been kicking. Although coach Billy Harris said he is content with the Ca- nadians' state of readiness, starting goaltender Jerry Cheevers is on the limp. Cheevers removed himself from the game halfway through the second period with Canada leading 3-1. He stepped out shortly after stretching to make a tough stop, one of many he produced in his 30-minute display. His replacement. Don McLeod. was steadier than in some recent outings but gave up two third-period goals. Cheevers probably will start the fifth game of the series Tuesday night in Moscow, but there is a question how long the veteran might be able to play. TOOK 3-0 LEAD Canada opened a 3-0 first- period lead on goals by Bobby Hull. Mike Walton and Howe, then coasted until Sweden had tied the score. Then Mahovlich took a precise pass from Rejean Houle and drilled a low 30-foot shot past Sewdish goaltender Leif Homgvist Bjorn Johansson pumped a loose puck past Cheevers in the second period and Tord Lundstrom and Mats Ahlberg beat McLeod 86 seconds apart in the third period. Johansson's goal came after Canada's erratic defence gave the puck away several times in succession. A few moments after that. Cheevers retired giving partisan fans cause for hope. Cheevers and McLeod com- bined for 30 saves, the same as Holmqvist. Lundstrom deflected a goal-mouth pass for the second Swedish tally then sent Ahlberg in the clear with a perfect breakaway pass. Ahlberg gave McLeod no chance from close range. The Swedish national team has been together only about a week in preparation for the Ross wins MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) Earl Ross, a rookie from Ailsa Craig, Ont., survived a steady stream of spinouts and wrecks Sunday for an upset victory in the Old Dominion 500 Grand National stock car race. The 32 year old Ross became the first rookie to win a major Grand National event since 1961. when Nelson Stacy took the Southern 500 at Darlington, S.C. game with Team Canada Twelve members of the last two national teams have been replaced this year. The Canadians dominated the first-period scoring but the play did not reflect their margin. Twice, Cheevers made outstanding stops before Canada swept down the ice to score. The goaltender was particu- larly sharp during a first- period penalty to Brad Selwood, one of only three minors called by referee Tom Brown of Toronto. Hull blistered a shot over Holmqvist's shoulder for the first goal, then Mahovlich's low screamer led to a rebound by Walton for the centre's first goal in six international games this season. Late in the period, during a penalty to Dan Labraaten of the Swedes, Hull's wicked drive was deflected by Gordie Howe after Marty Howe dug the puck free along the boards.
