Lancers win should TORONTO Would you believe the Rochester Lancers on national television this Sunday? No, it wouldn't be a pilot for a situation comedy series on the unusual happenings of our favorite North American Soccer League team. But if the Lancers and the Cosmos win their quarterfinal series, what once was considered the absurd very well could become a reality. Both the Lancers and Cosmos lead their playoff series, 1-0. The Lancers (13-15) meet the defending champion Toronto Metros-Croatia (13-14) tonight at Varsity Stadium in Toronto, and the Cosmos (17-11) play the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers (19-8) in Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow night. If -both teams win their playoff series, they'll advance to meet each other in the semifinals, with the first game of the two-gam home-and-home series Sunday in Rochester. League spokesman Ted Howard confirmed yesterday that a nationally televised Lancers-Cosmos game from Holleder Stadium Sunday in Rochester would be a strong possibility. The league, still in its growing stages, is Michael Lewis IT looking for huge television audiences. The Cosmos, with Pele, Franz Beck-enbauer and company, obviously would be the best bet to raise the ratings. Howard stressed, however, that the game would remain in Rochester, at 18,000-seat Holleder Stadium. He said the game would not be moved to the 76,000-seat Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. "It would not be out of Rochester," Howard said by telephone from the NASL office in New York City. "We wouldn't televise it out of the metropolitan area. One big reason is the huge audience we would lose." (A game televised from Giants Stadium would be blacked out in New York.) WROC-TV station manager Steve Engles said last night he did not know if a Holleder Stadium game would be LANCERS From Page ID overtime, a shootout will be held to determine which team advances. The game, which will start at 9 o'clock, was moved back from the regular 8 p.m. start to accommodate University of Toronto students writing examinations in Varsity Arena, which is next to the stadium. Unlike the final game, you don't need an investigation to figure out why the Lancers have been winning. Most of the team will tell you its team work, but Silva's switch to midfield has been the main reason. The Lancers have won all four games with Silva at midfield and outshot their opposition by an amazing 83-29 margin. They've outscored their foes, 7-1. Silva missed the season finale here which Toronto won, 2-0. but the Lancers expect him to be a factor tonight. "Saturday night's game was crazy," BRUINS From Page ID winger Gordie Clark, center Steve Langdon, Adduono, winger Bill Bennett and goalie Jim Pettie. Sinden also pointed out that several 1976-77 Bruins Doug Halward, Dave Forbes, Earl Anderson, Pachal and Barry Smith also might return to Rochester. There are enough maybes to leave fewer than 15 AHL-caliber players availabe for the Amerks. The prospects aren't as as dismal as they appear, though. Jones, Maluta, Byers and Merrell all could wind up calling Rupp for a job. And Rich Hart, Gary Jaquith, Ron Garwasiuk and Rod Graham will be invited to camp as well as Drolet. With enough talented free agents available, the Amerks won't be lacking for club-owned players. The Amerks can be as strong as their management is willing to spend the money. Now if you could just listen to all of their games on the radio. RUSSIANS ARE COMING? It's still in the talking stage, but the Amerks are negotiating with a Russian team for an exhibition game date at the War Memorial during Christmas week. "I don't want it to detract from the Bruins-Sabres game here in September," Rupp said, preferring to downplay the Russian game. "We'll know in a couple of weeks if the Russian game is on." The Amerks shouldn't worry. Both exhibitions will be great attractions. MORE HOCKEY: Sinden said Bruins' rookies will report to the Fitchburg, Mass., training camp Sept. 17, Veterans will report Sept. 19 and Amerk-owned players on Sept. 25. Sinden said the Bruins will sign defenseman Al Sims. The Amerks would like to change their opening night game against Nova Scotia from Friday, Oct. 14, to Thursday, Oct. 13, to avoid a World Series television conflict. But AHFL president Jack Butterfield said the possibility is slim because it would mean lengthening the 178-day league season. The Amerks have offered to hire former Red Wings general manager Ed Barnowski, now a top sporting goods salesman, on a retainer for sales of season tickets and advertising until the opening of the season. ERNIE D ON BLOCK: The Buffalo Braves have offered $400,000-a-year-guard Ernie DiGregorio to the Atlanta Hawks, but the Hawks have been unwilling to part with guard Armond Hill . A BETTER IDEA: Channel 10's Rich Funke, hustling president of the Press-Radio Club, has set his sights high on a guest for the Gannett Press-Radio Dinner on Valentine's Day. He'd like former President Gerald Ford, who has perfected a golf stroke that hits more spectators than fairways, to be Rochester's valentine. "There's no confirmation yet," Funke said, "but I understand the former President has said he would be interested in coming if he has no other commitment." he said. "We had so many opportunities to score. (Mike) Stojanovic missed two penalty shots. I missed a chance right in front of the Toronto goal. Don Droege's head shot hit the post. "I still can't believe it. I'll tell you this, we won't have two straight games of bad luck. If we have a little bit of luck, we won't have to worry. They'll be more nervous than us. We're going to play offensive soccer. We changed our game plan in St. Louis." i The 1-0 win over the Stars in St. Louis may have been a turning point for the Lancers, who have had problems on the road. They outplayed and outshot the Stars, 15-10. The Lancers should have won in regulation, but won in the shootout, goalkeeper Jack Brand's specialty, 1-0. The Lancers have a 2-12 record on the road. The Lancers were on the offensive for about two-thirds of that game, so Silva was spared heavy defensive work. Saturday night against the Metros during a 34-minute stretch in the second half the Lancers were down a man (ejection for fighting), but played as though they had the man advantage. They outshot the Metros in the second half and overtime, 13-2. "In Portugual, I didn't have to play defense, so it has been difficult for me to adjust," Silva said. "That doesn't mean I don't try. I do." blacked out in Rochester. "I assume we'd have to carry the game under contract we have with TVS (network)," Engles said, "but I don't know their blackout policy. We'll have to check with them." Channel 8 has televised soccer all season. The Lancers on national TV? Why, that sounds almost as absurd as the club moving to Fernwood, Ohio. (The scene of the satirical 'Fernwood Tonight' talk show.) PROFIT SHARING: If the Lancers face the Cosmos in the semifinals, one would be inclined to believe the Lancers would receive a percentage of the gate at Giants Stadium, which held a standing-room-only crowd of 77,691 for the Cosmos' 8-3 rout of the Strikers. It isn't so. Most of the receipts from the game will go into a league fund, where it will be shared equally by all 18 teams, Howard said. The home team receives a 20 per cent management fee for stadium rent and expenses, Lancers general manager Dick Kraft said. Tonight's game receipts might not make it to the league office. The Metros reportedly owe the Hotel Toronto $5,700 and the hotel wants to freeze the gate receipts. PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES: The league has asked the Toronto Varsity Stadium security force to beef up security for tonight's game. It is not known how many security personnel will be added. Lancers president Pat Dinolfo remembers what happened at last year's Lancers-Metros playoff game in Toronto, won by the Metros on a last second goal, 2-1. "Three fans attacked the coach (Dragan Popovic) and Mike (Stojanovic) and we even lost the game," Dinolfo said. "I don't want to see that happen again. We wouldn't ask for more protection, we would demand it." Why do the Metros-Croatia fans dislike the Lancers so much? Well, Stojanovic and Popovic are Serbians, and there has been a rift between the Croation and Serbians groups (both from Yugoslavia) since World War II. PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS: Toronto general manager George Simich on his club's protest of Saturday night's 1-0 Rochester win which was turned down by the league: "I think its a very funny situation. You have to question certain decisions of the league and chief of referees (Eddie Pearson)." According to Annette Capitano, a spokeswoman for WSAY-AM, the Lancers' game in Toronto tonight will be on the ajr beginning at 8:45 p.m. with the pre-game show. ?!
