Monday, Octobir 12, 1970 The IJnwlM Star 7 lead IM1 WW THI THIRD Hillf it -it -It By Tom Henderson Star Sports Writer Shero Had Choice New Omaha Knights hockey coach Fred Shero returned to Omaha by choice rather than by assignment this year. "I had my choice of coaching here or at Seattle," Shero says. "The reason I want to be here is that in Omaha you're working with the younger kids and you have a reason to get up in the morning and coach. They're more enthusiastic and competitive," he says. They're on their way up." : Shero coached the New York Rangers' Buffalo farm club last year before that team moved into the NHL in the league expansion. When Buffalo moved into the NHL, the Rangers placed a new farm team in Seattle and most of their older players are sent there, while the majority of the up-and-coming players go to the Omaha affiliate for seasoning. Shero does have one "oldster" on bis Omaha roster this season, however, and he's glad he does. Gerry Ouellette will be 32 next month, about 10 years older than the rest of the Knight players. "Since he joined us, we've started to look like a hockey team," Shero says. "He speaks French and, although I speak French too, he's a Frenchman and he speaks like one and he's a player too. That helps communicate better with the other French boys on the team." Some Rookies Blossom Shero may also be thankful for Ouelletto's hockey savvy too before the season is over. With five of last year's top players now in the NHL and a roster filled with several inexperienced rookies, the latest edition of the Knights just didn't look much like last year's CHL champions in their 4-3 exhibition loss to the Kansas City Blues Saturday night at Pershing Auditorium. But Shero says some of those stars like Don Luce, Jack Egers and Jim Krulicki, now with the New York Rangers, didn't show much promise when they were starting out either. "I saw some of them in training camp and I didn't think they were even good enough to turn pro," Shero says. "But then they blossomed into stars. "I hope we're going to have the same lock with some of our players," he continues. "We've got some guys like (Gary) Coalter, (Mike) Murphy and (Bill) Hogaboam. They're pretty good kids." Shero says, "We have a much better club now than we had two weeks ago." Hometown Support Strong The attendance figure for last Saturday night's exhibition was announced as 2,407, but it took strong hometown support from both teams to get that high. Omaha Knights public relations director Curt Gordon says the Knights' office sold 1,000 tickets to Omahans, while another 300-400 Kansas City fans stayed over for the game after seeing the Nebraska-Missouri football game that afternoon. We'd have to correct the crowd figure to 2,406, however, deducting the woman who had to be escorted from the auditiorium by police for abusing a referee with obscene language and gestures. At least she wasn't roaming the aisles and throwing paper airplanes on the floor like the younger fans did in the recent NBA exhibition game at Pershing.

Hendricks' Double Sends Cincinnati To 65 Setback Cincinnati UP Catcher Ellie Hendricks, at the center of a controversial play at home plate Saturday, doubled to left field for what he said was the first time In his 12-year career and sent Baltimore to a 6-5 victory over Cincinnati Sunday in the second game of the World Series. The triumph, built on a five-run fifth Inning outburst capped by Hendrlck's tie-breaking hit, gave the Orioles a commanding 2-0 lead In the best-of-seven series as the teams moved on to Baltimore to continue their battle on Tuesday. "As far as I can remember," Hendricks said in the happy Orioles' dressing room, "it's the first time I've ever hit one in that place. I hit a change-up. But I was looking for a fast ball. I can only hit the fast ball." Despite that fact, Hendricks moved the Orioles a major step closer to redemption for their upset loss in the World Series last year to the New York Mets - and big Boog Powell said that's exactly what every Baltimore player is battling for. "Deep inside of each of us we feel we have a score to settle," Powell said. "I think we're doing all right now. I think we're in the driver's seat. It's a big advantage now to go to our own park." Hendricks, a spindly 175-pounder, got the key hit for the Orioles in a patented explosion that sent Baltimore ahead to stay in a game replete with nine pitchers, 17 hits, including three homers, and a police guard stationed in right field to protect umpire Ken Burkhart.

Just as they did in an opening game triumph Saturday, the Orioles spotted the Reds a big lead, and trailed 4-0 after three innings. Powell's second homer of the series got one back in the fourth inning against Reds starter Jim McGlothlin and then the Orioles started to spray hits all around Riverfront Stadium's artificial turf. With one out, Chico Salmon started things with a single. Singles by Don Buford and Paul Blair brought in one run and chased McGlothlin, Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson tapping young Milt Wilcox for relief duty. Wilcox, a 20-year-old righthander with only 22 innings of work during the regular season, walked to the mound to face the towering, 250-pound Powell. The slugging Baltimore first baseman immediately singled in another run. Wilcox got Frank Robinson on a fly that backed right fielder Pete Rose against the wall, but didn't have as much success with Brooks Robinson, who bounced a single into right field that sent Blair racing home with the tying run. Hendricks strode to the plate, worked the count to 3-2 and then drilled a pitch inside the third base line for a double, Powell lumbering home and brooks Robinson following for the 6-4 lead.

Iff) Newly appointed Wichita State Uni versity football coach Bob Sea man told a news conference in Wichita Sunday night that survivors of the plane crash in Colo rado and the university athletic corporation have voted to con unue me university s season football schedule. Seaman, who was appointed as head coach to replace the late head coach Ben Wilson, who was killed in the plane crash Oct. 2 in Colorado, told news men that only one "no" vote was cast in balloting on whether the team would continue compe tition this season. The new coach said the game with Cincinnati scheduled next Saturday, Oct. 17, has been tentatively rescheduled for Oct. 31 when both teams have open dates. The Wichita team will start play Oct. 24 against Arkansas at Little Rock.

JLlffin was leading a group of his Black Shirt defensive unit out after a brief drill and quip- red to writers. "It looks like a shutout." No one took him seriously and even Monte pointed out that he wis only joshing with writers. But as things turned out Saturday in the 21-7 Nebraska victory over Missouri his defenders did pitch a virtual shjitout with the only Tiger score coming on a one-yard plunge after a pass interception had put the ball that close to the Huskereoal. Bet the Husker Black Shirts took that bitter blow to their shutout hopes on the scoreboard in-stride and as monster man Dave Morock explained, "It made us that much more determined that since they got one touchdown, we weren mine to edve them any more." Bv holding Missouri to thai lone touchdown, the Husker Black Shirts finally got down to a goal set early in the year by middle guard Ed Periard. "Our goal is to hold opponents to fewer points per game than last year's defense did," Periard explained after the 28-0 shutout win over Army. Last year's defensive unit, one of the best in the nation, allowed 10.8 points per game. This year's defense is not permitting only 10 points per game, Having given up SO in five games. "I think we re a better defensive team than we were last year," co-captain and linebacker Jerry Murtaugh observes. That defense against scoring statistic bears nun out. The Husker Black Shirts also have faced three good rushing Sports Menu Point noon.

The Tigers came into the Husker clash averaging 277.3 yards per game on the ground, best in the Big Eight, but left Memorial Stadium win only 87 rushing yards against the tough Husker Black Shirts. This feat solidified the Husker lead in the Big Eight in rushing defense after going into the game on top, having given up 118.3 yards per outing. The Huskers also will main tain their total defense lead this week and will move to the head of the class in defense against scoring with that 10-point average. Nebraska had been second to Iowa State in defense against scoring, but the Cyclones gave op 61 to Colorado Saturday and that will be enough to knock them from the lead. - But the Husker defense must still face some high-scoring teams in their bid to maintain that 10-pomt average and it starts this week with the hiehest scoring t? am in the Big Eieht. Kansas, a surprising co-leader with Nebraska in the Big Eight standings after a 21-15 uoset win over Kansas State, is averaging 29.8 points per game. And as surprising as it is that KU shares the Big Eight lead with Nebraska is the fact that they are second to Huskers in overall record among Big Eight teams with a 4-1 mark. "Now, we've got to face a team that's unbeaten in Big Eight play," Husker head coach Bob Devaney points out. "Ana they'll be higher than a kite. "They've also got a fine run- pass threat in quarterback Dan Heck." That battle takes place Satur day in Lawrence, Kan.

When starter Mike Cuellar was pounded, Weaver went to Tom Phoebus. After Phoebus left, he called on 35-year-old Moe Drabowsky. Drabowsky surrendered Bench's homer in the sixth as the Reds pulled to within one run, then left in the seventh when the Reds threatened. Ty Cline, the pinch-hitting hero of two Reds' victories in the National League playoffs, opened the seventh with a single to left. Pinch hitter Angel Bravo then sacrificed and, when Drabowsky walked Rose, Weaver waved to the bullpen for lefthanded Marcelino Lopez to pitch to left-swinging Bobby Tolan. Tolan ran the count to 3-2 and then fouled out to third. Weaver scurried out of the dugout again, applauding Lopez' t performance while calling for Dick Hall, a right-hander, to face slugging right-handed hitter Tony Perez. Hall threw one pitch to Perez and got him to tap to third for a force out on Rose at second. Hall set the Reds down in order the rest of the way, getting the final out when Blair raced to deepest center field to haul in a long drive by pinch hitter Jimmy Stewart. The Reds, who refused to blame Saturday's loss on a disputed home plate decision by Burkhart, now face long odds in their bid to bring Cincinnati its first world championship in three decades. No team in baseball history has ever come back to ; win the World Series in its 67 years after losing the first two games at home. ( Prior to the game, players from both teams still were discussing Burkhart's call in the sixth inning of the opener when he was bowled over as Bernie Carbo, kept Hendricks from reaching Carbo. The Baltimore catcher, also falling and 1 confused, tagged Carbo with the glove hand while holding the ball in his bare hand. Burkhart, however, ruled Carbo out and the Orioles went on to a 4-3 victory. It looked different Sunday as the Reds, who had a 3-8 record against lefthanders during the regular season, began tagging the southpaw Cuellar from the first inning. Rose, leading off, reached first when shortstop Mark Belanger hobbled his grounder for an error. One out later, Perez grounded a single up the middle. Bench filed out but Lee May, the big first baseman who is the No. 3 man in the Reds' power trust, lashed a first-pitch double to left center for two runs. May careened around to third when Blair was unable , to pick up the ball cleanly and scored when Hal McRae surprised the Orioles by laying a bunt down to the left of the mound for a single. Tolan made it 4-0 in the third inning when he slammed a 2-0 pitch into the lower stands in right field for a home run. Brooks Robinson, who made a sensational fielding play Saturday, added another later in the inning to end the Reds' threat. After Tolan's homer, Bench walked with two ont and May followed with a hot shot down third. Robinson was spun around by the force of the hit, but held on, straightened up and began a third-to-second-to-first double play, and maybe that gave the Orioles the lift they needed, for Powell then started the Baltimore comeback with a leadoff homer in the fourth. Cuellar, a 33-year-old Cuban left-hander with a 24-8 record during the regular season, lasted only 2 1-3 innings and was charged with all four Cincinnati runs. McGlothlin had only a little more success, leaving with four runs against him in 4 1-3 innings. ! Phoebus, wlw pitched out ! the third Inning Jam and allowed a double to McRae in the fourth, got credit for the victory. Young Wilcox was tagged with the defeat. When play is resumed Tuesday after a day off today, Anderson is expected to confirm Tony Cloninger as his third game pitcher. Weaver will go with his other left-handed 24-game winner, Dave McNally.
