Montreal Fails Test 5. Raiders Top Jets By SHEILA MOHAN Associated Press Sports Writer The New York Jets, bothered by slippery fingers, and the city of Montreal, troubled by empty seats, are licking their wounds. For both, Monday was a night to forget. The Oakland Raiders, who lost to the Jets 27-23 in last year's American Football League championship, got their revenge as they whipped the World Champions 24-6. The city of Montreal fumbled its first test as a future expansion site for American pro football. Only 8,212 fans turned out to see Detroit beat Boston 22-9 in an interleague game, leaving more than three-quarters of the 28,845-seat Expos' baseball stadium empty. Oakland quarterback Daryle Lamonica completed two touchdowns passes while New York could manage only two field goals. Jets' quarterback Joe Na-math watched most of the game from the bench. Before leaving late in the first quarter, Namath drove the Jets to the Oakland three, but Emerson Boozer fumbled and linebacker Don Connors recovered for the Raiders at the one. The Jets bungled again in the last minute of play when Mike Battle fumbled a kickoff after Oakland scored a field goal. Oakland's George Buehler, a rookie from Stanford, recovered on the Jets' 25. The Raiders led all the way but Lamonica, playing nearly three periods, had his problems. He had three interceptions. Veteran George Blanda took over at quarterback and boosted the score to 14-6 when he fired a 22-yard touchdown pass to running back Larry Todd. Blanda added a 16-yard field goal with 1:04 left to play. Lamonica returned to the game in the last quarter, moved the ball to the New York six and then threw his final touchdown pass to rookie Drew Buie with 14 seconds left. The Patriots and the Lions did little to inspire the Montreal Local Shorts K. Of C. Squad Clinches Title Tie FORT SENECA-The Knights of Columbus clinched a tie for the Fort Seneca League big ball championship by sweeping a double header with the top contenders Monday evening. The Knights, who also have won the Fremont Big Ball league championship, defeated Old Fort, 16-5, in the opener and edged Jolly Root Beer, 12-11, in the nightcap. In the first game, the Knights broke the game open with eight runs in the third inning and added four more in the fourth. Ron Rodenhauser, George Haslinger, Andy Klisz and Jim Beler all homered for the winners. Haslinger was four for four, while Klisz and Ken Gabel each had three hits. The Knights won the second game with a four run seventh inning. George Haslinger's home run and Ken Ga-bel's three run triple were the big hits in the rally. Andy Klisz had a three run home run in the first inning. Klisz, Haslinger and Gabel each had three hits. Tom Yeager went the distance to win the first game and picked up the victory in the second contest in relief of Gil Wagner. Old Fort ended the season with an 11-3 mark and Jolly's finished at 10-4. The K. of C. is 11-2 with one game to go. St. Joseph Scrimmage Site Set Fremont St. Joseph's football scrimmage with Shelby will be held at Shelby at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday.

The Patriots gained just four yards during a lacklustre first half. Detroit's Errol Mann kicked three of his five field goals during that time and Boston's Gino Cappelletti countered with a 37-yarder. Cappelletti booted a 31-yarder in the third period and Mann a 12-yarder before the Lions broke it open. The Lions' other score came on a two-yard touchdown run by Mel Fair. But the city fathers in Montreal aren't giving up, although the small crowd was an obvious disappointment to both John McHale, the Expos' president who booked the game, and Gerry Snyder, the vice-chairman of the executive committee in the city government. Snyder insisted the game between the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers Sept. 11 would be a better test. "Boston and Detroit are not the greatest draws as far as Montreal is concerned," Snyder said. "I think you'll see a better crowd when the New York Giants play here." Cleveland Hosts Angels CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -The Cleveland Indians, who completed a sweep of a three-game series with the Seattle Pilots Sunday to end a two-week road trip, play two games against the California Angels here before taking off again. Steve Hargan (5-10) will oppose the Angels' Jim McGlothin (6-12) tonight in a battle of right-handers. Southpaw Sam McDowell will go for the Indians Wednesday night and will be looking for his 16th victory. His opponent probably will be Tom Murphy. McDowell still hopes for a 20-victory season, the first of his career, but he will have to win five of his last eight starts to achieve the goal. After the two games with the Angels, the Indians will play three games with the White Sox in Chicago and three with the Twins in Minnesota before returning home again. The Tribe was idle Monday. Sims Faces Court Action CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -Cleveland Indians catcher Duke Sims was charged with turning pitcher when a former Cleveland Community Relations Board aide signed a warrant claiming Sims threw a glass at her and cut her face. The assault and battery warrant was filed Monday by an attorney for Miss Adrienne Lieb. Sims is to appear Sept. 8 in Garfield Heights Municipal Court to answer the charge. Miss Lieb contends that she was with friends at a cocktail lounge in suburban Maple Heights when Sims made an insulting remark to her. They exchanged words, she said, spilled drinks on each other and then Sims threw the glass. Miss Lieb said she was treated at Brentwood Hospital, but her doctor said she would need plastic surgery. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete declined comment. .jm Vs. m 1 ...iu Tuesday, August 26, 1969 Fremont News-Messenger 11 77, Mi-Timers Hutson, Herber Head Selections For 1930s Team THROWN OUT AT HOME-Cincinnati Reds' Lee May, left, tries to score from second on Woody Woodward's single to left in second Pro Football Prospects inning at Chicago today, but Cubs' catcher Randy Hundley tags him out after taking throw from left fielder Billy Williams. Strong Cardinals Shooting For Century Championship By CHARLIE BAROUH Associated Press Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals, fielding possibly their strongest team in four years, will be making a determined bid for the National Football League's Century Division title this season. The Cardinals lost only one veteran from last year's team, which finished with a rush and wound up second in the division with a 9-4-1 record. Flanker Bobby Joe Conrad departed after 11 years with the Cardinals. The Big Red replaced him with John Gilliam, pinked up in a trade with the New Orleans Saints. Gilliam, a third-year player, is a 9.5 sprinter and gives the Cardinals one of the best frontline receiving corps in the league. Dave Williams is the otner wide receiver and Jackie Smith holds down the tight end spot. Both are rated terrific. More important is the return of key players from the military. Quarterback Charley Johnson, who could spark the Cardinals to a division title, returns to full-time duty after two years limited by Army service. Knee injuries limited him for two years before that, but, with luck, there may be no limits this year. Veteran linebacker Larry Stallings is another player returning to full-time duty after two years of playing on weekend passes. His return strengthens a pretty strong linebacker unit that complements the Cardinals' standout safeties, Larry Wilson and Jerry Stovall. Stovall was out most of last year with injuries. "Offensively, we feel that Jim Hart continued to improve over his 1967 performance," Coach Charley Winner said, "and Charley Johnson's return should strengthen our attack." Winner faces a delicate problem at quarterback. Johnson is back, but the less-experienced Advertisement Hart has been the regular quarterback for two years. Winner probably will pick his starting quarterback on pre-season form and go with the hot hand after that. In the end, it might be the offensive and defensive lines and how healthy they stay that determine St. Louis' fortune this year. "The offensive line has been a strong and solid unit and we expect it to continue its fine performances of 1968," Winner said. "Defensively, our pass rush was greatly improved and we look for it to improve still more this year. We also wanted to reduce the number of cheap touchdowns scored against us, and achieved that goal last year." The Cardinal offensive line is among the best in the league. The young, veteran unit failed the quarterback only 20 times last year, and sometimes it was the quarterback's fault. The defensive line may not be quite as good, but it's still good. Both units, however, have little in the way of proven reserves. Another strong point is the Cardinal running game. Johnny Roland, an explosive runner, should be completely healed from a knee injury of two years ago. He seemed hesitant to run all out at times last year. Winner expects him at peak form this year. Powerful Willis Crenshaw, who gave indications of coming into his own last year; Roy Shivers, MacArthur Lane, and Cid Edwards all are impressive runners in what looks like the Cardinals' most impressive department. They could very well lug the Cardinals to the division title. Field Coal Wins CALGARY (AP) - Tommy Joe Coffey's last minute field goal gave Hamilton a 27-26 victory over the Calgary Stamped-ers in the Canadian Football League Monday night. Coffey also had three other field goals, two conversions and a touchdown. NEW YORK (AP) - Receiver Don Hutson and quarterback Arnie Herber, who formed the first great passing combination In pro football, were named today to an all-1930s team commemorating the National Football League's 50th anniversary. The two Hall of Famers, who brought their talents together for the Green Bay Packers, were among 25 players named to the second of the decade teams honoring the outstanding players of the NFL's first half-century. To commemorate that 50 years, the NFL, with Simon and Schuster, is publishing a book called "The First Fifty Years," which punctuates the history of pro football's first major league through the selection of five decade teams leading to an all-time All-NFL team. Hutson and Herber made the pass a major weapon in the ground-oriented NFL during the 1930s, Hutson winding up his career with 488 receptions, 7,991 yards and an even 100 touchdowns. Herber, whose records are incomplete, passed for 8,033 yards in the air. Hutson, who played both ways in the era of one-platoon football, actually was a specialist a receiver without equal during his career and the innovator who was the first player to develop a full repetoire of fakes. Before him receivers merely had run straight routes to their assigned area, but Hutson developed the technique of what is now called the pass pattern. He was so far ahead of his time as a receiver that he led the NFL eight of his 11 years.
