nftmuw w 2 j shm sfewr , Tuesday, November 14, 1989 Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Star-Phoenix Bombers bounce Argos TORONTO (CP) - James West should consider taking up a career in fortune telling when his football days are over. The guy doesnt even need tarot cards or a crystal ball. West predicted a Winnipeg victory in the CFL Eastern semi-final and the Blue Bombers made the linebacker a prophet with a 30-7 decision Sunday over the Toronto Argos. I felt confident wed play well, said West, who had an interception, sack and four tackles to help the defending Grey Cup champions end a seven-game winless string. We shut down their running game and forced them to pass. We felt that if we did that wed win because we felt their passing game wouldnt hurt us. Right again, James. The Argos only gave the ball to 1,000-yard rusher Gill Fenerty 11 times and he managed a lowly 44 yards. Toronto fared little better by air, as John Congemi and Rick Johnson combined for 13 completions in 35 attempts for 194 yards and two interceptions. Lee Saltz, in only his second start since Sean Salisbury was released, threw touchdown passes to Jeff Smith and Rick House, and rushed for 79 yards to send the Bombers to Hamilton for the Eastern final on Sunday. Winnipeg has won its last two post-season encounters with the Argos, who were favored despite having the same 7-11 record as the Bombers. Im glad to be getting an opportunity to play, said Saltz, who BLUE BOMBERS was 19 of 27 through the air for 178 yards. There was pressure but I sno thought this team showed a lot of poise and our veterans showed a lot of leadership. Paul Clatney had the other Winnipeg TD off a blocked punt. Trevor Kennerd converted the three major scores and added field goals of 40 and 17 yards. Bob Cameron punted a pair of singles to round out the Bombers scoring. Congemi hit Jeff Boyd with a 44-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to cut the Argos deficit to 19-7. For an unhappy crowd of 22,785 at the SkyDome, the afternoon reflected Torontos incompetence on offence throughout 1989: 21 games filled with confusion between the quarterbacks and receivers, untimely penalties and poor play selection. We never could get into a rhythm the whole damn year, muttered offensive tackle Chris Schultz. We didnt get any continuity, added Fenerty, referring to a rash of injuries that resulted in constant change. Receivers Darrell Smith, Emanuel Tolbert and Boyd, who returned Sunday after an eight-game absence, were sidelined during the regular season, and the Argos used four different quarterbacks. The constant change added up to the leagues worst offence. There wasnt a sign of anything happening early for us, said defensive end Glenn Kulka. ' Its very frustrating when every game youre going to be behind, when you dont see any light at the end of the tunnel. The Winnipeg offence, also sub-par in recent weeks, put enough points on the board to help the defence Sunday. Saltz hit a wide-open Smith a former Argo in the end zone to complete a 99-yard drive and give Winnipeg an 8-0 lead early in the second quarter. The 12-play march was kept alive when Harold Hallman was penalized for hitting Kennerd on a missed field-goal attempt. Kennerd added a field goal late in the first half, while the Argo offence incurred the wrath of the smallest turnout for a Toronto home game this season. Johnson only completed one of seven passes for four yards before being replaced by Congemi with three minutes remaining in the half. Congemi was also ineffective with 12 completions on 28 passes for 190 yards, including seven catches for 120 yards by Paul Ma-sotti. Cameron hit a 54-yard single in the third quarter, and Clatney JAMES WEST . . . accurate prediction made it 19-0 when he scooped up a loose ball at the Toronto 10-yard line after Michael Allen blocked Glenn Harpers punt. It was the third time this season that the Bombers have turned a blocked punt into seven points against Toronto, with Clatney twice the beneficiary. Kennerd booted his third field goal and Saltz connected with House for an 18-yard scoring pitch in the final 15 minutes, clinching a date with the heavily favored Tiger-Cats. But Chris Walby said Hamilton fans shouldnt be buying Grey Cup tickets yet. Teams preparing for us now might as well throw the old game films away, said Winnipegs mammoth offensive tackle. We did so many different things today to show weve got a varied arsenal. Sports B7 Nutanas Armbruster wins Classic, $8,000 Kim Armbruster of the host Nutana Curling Club captured top honors at the Labatts Lite Curling Classic in Saskatoon during the weekend, securing a 10-7 victory over Carolyn Revet of Lioydminster with her last rock to earn the $8,000 first prize. Armbruster, supported by third Laurie Secord, second Twila Wasden and lead Karen Saworski, was leading 8-7 coming home and had to slide her last rock by a guard to chip Revet off the button to secure the win. Revets rink of third Cheryl Dow, second Kelly Anne Bykowsky and lead Lynn Braybrook, earned $4,600. After blanking the first end Revet notched one point in each of the second, fourth, sixth and seventh ends and added three in the ninth. Armbruster scored three in the third, two in the fifth and three in the eighth before taking two in the 10th. Armbruster defeated Janet Harvey of Winnipeg 6-4 to advance to the semi-final where she beat Sandy Turner of Calgary 4-3 to earn a berth in the championship game while Revet got by Heather MacMillan of Nutana 7-4 in her quarter-final game and went on to defeat Anne Merklinger of Ottawa 8-6 in the semi-final. Turner, who defeated Sue Lang of Regina 9-2 to advance to the semifinal, and Merklinger, who downed Heather Rankin of Halifax 8-4 in quarter-final play, each earned $2,700. Lang, Rankin, MacMillan and Harvey took home $1,500 each. THE SASKATOON MINOR SOFTBALL LEAGUE is accepting applications for MIDGET A" COACHES for the 1990 season.

S7K6S5 Penguins slump keeps Esposito home PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tony Esposito, the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager, decided his slumping teams problems are more important than the NHL general managers meetings in Chicago. Esposito decided to return to Pittsburgh on Sunday to contemplate the Penguins 5-10-2 start. The Penguins fell 8-3 to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. I decided to go home and regroup, Esposito said. Im just going to go home, think things over, make a few phone calls, see where were going. The Penguins ended a six-year playoff drought with a second-place finish in the Patrick Division last season. This year, though, theyve stumbled and placed Coach Gene Ubri-acos job in jeopardy. Im kind of aggravated with the way things are right now, Esposito said. Its a case of non-productivity on certain players parts. There are a couple of guys that have no production at all . . . And were not getting any goaltending. Pittsburghs No. 1 goalie, Tom Barrasso, is expected to miss another four weeks after sur gery on his right wrist. Backups Wendell Young and Frank Pietrangelo have been filling in. In Pittsburghs first 17 games last year, centre Mario Lemieux had 43 points while playing in 15 of the games. This season he has 30. Right winger Rob Browns point total has declined from 35 to 17, and defenceman Paul Coffey has dropped from 26 to 12 since last season. The thing we have to forget about is what they did last year, Ubriaco said. Some people are still living on that. Its unfortunate, and we are having a hell of a time getting them to realize it. Rice waived; bidding begins NEW YORK (AP) - Jim Rice was placed on waivers, Chris Bando and Leon Durham filed to raise the total of free agents to a record 90 and Tim Teufel signed before the opening bell rang Monday in baseballs chafee of free agents. Mark Langston, Mark Davis, Rickey Henderson, Robin Yount, Kent Hrbek and Tony Pena could begin discussing contracts with clubs Monday, the final day of the filing period. Langston, the most sought-after free agent of the offseason, spent the day at the Los Angeles office of his agent, Am Tellum, waiting to see who called. The Seattle Mariners, the team that traded Langston to Montreal last May after losing hope of resigning him, indicated that they might re-enter the bidding. Since the trade, the team has been sold by George Argyros to a group headed by Jeff Smulyan. He told the Seattle Times that he would offer Langston $9.5 million to $10 million in a three-year contract. Whatever Langstons decision comes down to, it wont be a matter of money, Smulyan was quoted as saying. We want Mark Langston. We sincerely believe he should be back with Seattle, where he belongs. Davis spent the day in New York, where he was honored with a Rolaids Relief Award for saving a major league-leading 44 games. His talks to re-sign with the San Diego Padres have broken down. He said money wont be the only thing hes looking for and that length of contract is important, too. Security comes with years and I think thats what everybody looks for, Davis said, Obviously I would like to have a 100-year contract until I pass away. Langston and Davis, like other top free agents, would require amateur draft picks as compensation if they sign with new teams. Rice wont have that minor obstacle. He was placed on waivers Monday by the Boston Red Sox and wont require any compensation at all. Jim Rice has been a very good player for us through the years, but we felt it was time to make a change, Boston general manager Lou Gorman said. Rice, who has 382 homers, 1,451 RBIs and 2,452 hits, batted .234 this season with three homers and 28 runs batted in. The only thing he cant do is re-sign with the Red Sox until May, but given the fact that they made it adamantly clear they have no intention to sign him, thats not a possibility, Rices agent, George Kalafatis, said.
