Page 4 F > THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Devils Travel ToCarmel I For Saturday Kite Game I PRO FOOTBALL ByEldonCage Tribune Sports Editor After Tipton's Blue Devils tangle with Peru's giant Tigers Friday night featuring 7* John Garrett, the Satans travel to Carmel on Saturday night to exchange jumps with a shorter but still volitile Carmel Greyhound basketball team. Coach John Moses is hoping for no more injuries to his Devils but is keeping his fingers crossed against any future "bad luck of 1970". In last years regular season game with Carmel, Coach Moses and his strong Satans trampled Carmel and David Sheperd by nine points, and then lost a heartbreaker to Sheperd and Company in the Sectional by seven points. Carmel then went on to the final game of the State Tourney and David Sheperd became the king of Indiana High School scorers in tourney play by beating George McGinnis' record established just one year prior. Moses said that all Devil var­ sity players were in fairly good physical condition and that barring unforseen problems Tim Clouser and Jim York would start at forwards; Bob Richardson would get the nod at Center; and Jeff Juday and Bill Sullivan would get the call on the Guard spots. Larry Harper, Mike Jackson, Joe Achenbach and Jerry Cage are ready in the wings to take over for any of the positions. Eric Clark is the new Carmel coach, replacing very successful Bill Sheperd, who retired from the mentor duties following the great years with his two sons, David and Billy Sheperd winning five straight sectional tourneys. Billy is a Butler University standout and David is the Indiana University Freshmen hotshot. ' This year's Carmel team is almost as tough as the five previous Greyhound editions and on<~ the Carmel floor, Tipton will have a real tough evening of roundball against the veteran Greyhounds.. ._ ... . - -\ THESE SHIRTS MAKE GREAT GIFTS, ESPECIALLY IN NEW JACQUARDS AND GEO- METRICS, SMART STRIPES, DEEP TONES. ALL SIZES. OPEN EVENINGS TIL CHRISTMAS it By BILL MADDEN UPI Sports Writer More than just the Bay area championship may be at stake for the San Francisco Forty- Niners Sunday when they invade Oakland in the first regular-season meeting with the neighboring Raiders. A victory over Oakland, already entrenched- as the American Football Conference Western Division champions, would assure the Forty-Niners their first division championship in 25 years of National Football League play. The Forty-Niners (9-3-1) hold a one-game edge over the Los Angeles Rams (8-4-1) who play the New York Giants, also seeking a division title, in New York. An Oakland victory combined with a Rams' triumph over the Giants, however, would give the NFC Western Division to Los Angeles on the basis of the Rams' better record within the division. However, a Ram loss will give San Francisco the crown regardless of how the Forty- Niners fare against Oakland. Elsewhere, the Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) can wrap up th£ first division championship of their three-year existence Sunday by defeating Boston (2-11) at home. The Cleveland Browns (6-7), the only team with a chance to beat out the Bengals . in the AFC Central Division, are at Denver (5-7-1). Two teams with chances of the playoffs on the basis of the best second-place record are at home Sunday. The Dallas . Cowboys (9-4) entertain the Houston Oilers (39-1), while the Detroit Lions (94) play host to the Green Bay Packers (6-7). The Miami Dolphins (9-4) can wrap up the AFC second-place slot with a win over Buffalo (39-1) in the Orange Bowl Sunday, while the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4-2), rooting for a Dolphin loss, must win at San Diego (4-6-3). • Sunday's remaining gamei feature Chicago (5-8) at Ne^ : Orleans (2-10-1), Pittsburgh (5- k ' 8) at Philadelphia (2-10-1), ! Minnesota (11-2) at Atlanta (47-2) and St. Louis (8-4-1), its slim playoff hopes fading, at' Washington (5-8). The New. York Jets (4-9) are at Baltimore (10-2-1) on Saturday. Quarterback John Brodie, the leading NFC passer, heads the San Francisco attack with wide receiver Gene Washington and running back Ken Wtllard.:> Brodie hit Washington for three. touchdowns last week against New Orleans while Willard has picked up 710 yards this year to ' rank sixth in the NFC rushing department. Los Angeles can not expect a great degree of Eastern hospitality when it invades Yankee Stadium for the showdown with the Giants. The New Yorkers have a chance to snare their first division crown since the Y. A. Title days back in 1963. There'll be 62,000 or so Giants* faithful on hand and New York quarterback Fran Tarkenton has never lost to the Rams at home.
