Shaw Wins By Two Over Arnie By JOE SARGB UP1 Sports Writer PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (UPJ.)^ Arnold Palmer still is. chasing his own private rainbow. .Tommy Shaw isn't. Palmer, who wants a tourney , title so bad he "can taste it, almost pulled it off at Bing Crosby's- annual «lambake during the weekend. But it was a case of close, but no cigar. Shaw, who hadn't won a . tourney himself sinGe mid-1969, scrambled home with a two- under-par 70 Sunday to beat Palmer by two strokes and win the Crosby. The 41-year-old Palmer hasn't won since the Danny : Thomas Diplomat Classic at the end of 1969, but dauntless . in his pursuit of a tourney title, will try again this week in the Phoenix Open. Shaw, who won only $33,004 last year, picked up a check for $27,000 for winning the Crosby and added to the $1,265 he won at the Los Angeles Open in the year's first tourney, he now • almost has matched his 1970 earnings in just two weeks. "It's nice to winagain,"'said the soon to be 29-year-old : who halt Noblesville's Millers 81-73 in one of Hamilton County's most bitter high school rivalries. Noblesville scored first and then ran the count to 3-0 before McCoskey and Morgan began their "AerialShow" of longfield- ers and quickly ran the score 16-9 before the Millers caught their breath. Morgan had 10 points and Rick had six and Mark Hundley 3 at the end of the first quarter with the Huskies leading 20-15. All five Noblesville starters, Ray Lyttle, Waverh an and Rex Wallace all had scored two or more tallies. McCoskey belted five straight" fielders in the second quarter. Morgan hit two fielders, Jim Simpson collected a pair of charity tosses and Dale Meyerrose zipped a fielder to give Heights a 40-33 halftime bulge. Jeff Mosbaugh and MarkRund- ley again gave the M twins scoring support in the final two stanzas, after Noblesville twice pulled within two points of the Huskies. Mitch Russell was a delight on floor play. v ^ Heights in the fourth quarter really needed this title (Crbsby) continuously held leads of 10 to' I can't thinfe of 12 points before giving up four NOBLESVILLE (73) Lyttle 5.6 3 16 Grimes 5 2 2 12 Dashiell 4 3 311 Bryan 4 4 4 12 Wallace 3 2 4 8 Latham 5 2 4 12 Gray 1.0 2 2 Men's Bowling Tourney Jon. 25-30 The Tipton Men's Bowling League Tournament begins Monday night, January 25, at the Suburban Lanes on Ind. 19 two miles south of Tipton and all men's league play will be suspended during next week.

Lew Leads Bucks By JOHN G. GRIFFIN ; UPI Sports.Editor MIAMI (UPI) -The Baltimore Colts didn't exactly do it the! classy way Brooks Robinson and the Baltimore Orioles did— but' they'll take it anyway. ' They fumbled five times, they threw three pass interceptions, they flubbed an extra point, and three of 'em even collided trying to stop a punt from going into the end zone- nothing like the super way Robinson scooped .up 'hot grounders for baseball's Orioles. I ' . But the Colts are laughing all the way to the bank today to deposit their $15,000 checks- thinks to a 22-year-old longhaired rookie named Jim O'Brien, who redeemed all' mistakes with a 32-yard field goal for a 16-13 win over the Dallas Cowboys. | j "My mother's an astrologer and she told me we were gonna win," said O'Brien, who's not only an Aquarius himself (and isn't this the "Age of Aquarius?') but also (sorry, Cowboys) a born Texan. J While O'Brien's tie-breaking boot, in the final nine seconds, was the simple reason for the Colts' victory in Super Bowl V Sunday, j the football pundits came up with several other reasons ! today why the Colts were able to gain revenge for their 1969 Super Bowl upset by the New York Jets. . .. j ''Defense Did It" j "Our defense did it," ex^ plained Colt Coach Don McCafferty.. . K "The big play was; in the third period," said Cowboys' Coach Tom Landry. "That was when Duane Thomas fumbled on the Colt goal line; If he had scored, we would have had - a 20r6 lead and the Coits would have had to do a lot of catching up. After that, it was nothing but errors for us." ; j "Earl Morral did a fine job," explained Colt quarterback Johnny Unitas, who went out with a rib injury in the second period : and then watched Morrall lead the Colts in dominating the second half;. "But a lot of fans were finding the key in the pass tossed by Cowboy quarterback Craig Morton with a minute to go that bounced off the hands of intended' receiver Dan. Reeves i and was picked off by Colt Mike [ Curtis, who ran it back to the! Cowboy 28 to set up O'Brien's field goal. In the first period, the • Cowboys had a first down on the Colt ! nine and had to settle for Mike Clark's three-pointer. In the; second, they settled for . another jboot after having a first down I on the Baltimore six. So when the Colts scored ona weird playjr- John Mackey scoring ou aJ75-yard pass play from, Unitas when the ball bounced off the hands of defender. Mel Rehfro—the Colts were tied up, Washington Blocks Mark Washington blocked O'Brien's: extra point when the eventual [hero got it away a little slow.

The Colts didn't match that until the fourth period when Rich Volk's interception of a Morton aerial' set up a two-yard plunge by Tom Nowatzke. This time O'Brien converted and the score stayed 13-13 until the last• minute dramatics. • F or the first time in history, a loser, linebacker Chuck Howley of the Cowboys, got the "Outstanding Player" Award, worth a new car. "It's nice," admitted Howley, "but I wish we had won the game.". Counting the $15,000 - winner's share here, each Colt earned $25,000 in post-season money.

That was the method used for determining which of those expansion teams would 'get UCLA star Alcindor . two years ago. Milwaukee won the -coin flip and bargaining rights for Alcindor. Alcindor got assistance on Sunday night from Bob Dandridge with 29 points and Jon McGlocklin with 22. Boston, playing without John Haylicek and Jo Jo White, was led by Don Nelson's 26 points.

Everybody Makes Mistakes Everybody was making mistakes. That included Golden Boy O'Brien, who missed a routine conversion try following Baltimore's first touchdown in the second quarter, leaving the score tied 6-6. O'Brien bad nobody, but himself to blame for missing the pat. He took too long. He blew it and he knew it. | "When I missed that{ kick I thought I was gonna fold," the completely ingenuous O'Brien reVealed while tightly clutching! the "game ball" he bad been awarded which was actually the same ball he bad kicked for his three-pointer. "I said, 'Damn, am I reaUy gonna give up and not kick well all; day or. are we gonna come back the way we did.in the San Diego i game. That San Diego game was. our first of the season and we were behind until the last 58 seconds." ' Then what happened? I cahie in and kicked a 28r yard field goal and we won, 1614," j O'Brien said without actually| boasting about it. Although O'Brien i is a first year member of the Baltimore Colts, he was someething of an "old drioie" out there on the field through a$ of the second half because he hurt his knee out- kicking off following Baltimore's; first touchdown in the' second quarter. O BRIEN Hits Knee . "I ws s running down the field and I hit my! ,knee on somebody's helmet who was trying [ to block me," O'Brien said, j Didn': the injury bother him? "Nah " said O'Brien. "It was my left knee." | Oh, so it didn't really matter at all. ' ] "I wouldn't say that," the rook'corrected. "I still needed a leg tc stand on." Jim C'Brien isn't the nervous type. Still, when hejwent out to try that placement with only nine seconds, left there were a few things, running I through his mind, i | . : • [ "I wasn't cluttering up my mind with too many thoughts," he says!. *[If i: started thinking Id'd start worrying ] and I didn't wanna! [do that. I was just concentrating on j getting my steps down. Some of the guys like Jimmy Orr, Ray Perkins and Tom Mitchell Itold me not to worry too much if I missed the kick. There was always the overtime period. Earl Morrall (who held the ball for him) also was helpful. He saicl, 'Just kick it straight through] There's no wind.'" '''.' .| ". - That's what O'Brien did. He really | wasn't overly worried. His {mother, who is an astrologer, told him beforehand his . team would jwin but it woupd be close. He believed what she told him. .Curiously, O'Brien won a place with the Colts this year not so much for . his place kicking but because he also is a backup receiver. That won him a berth over veteran Lou Michaels (remember the guy who challenged Joe Namath' in • a bar two years ago?) "I didn't play too much as a backup receiver this season," .O'Brien explained. "I caught onlysone pass." They, asked him all sorts of questions after his kick made the Colts champs Sunday. Was that the best kick he ever made? . \. For $23,500 it has to be," he laughed. Was he planning to ask for a raise now? "No comment," he said to his questioner. "You trying to take advantage of a rookie?" Was he going to cut his hair soon? "No," Jim O'Brien, said. "What for?"
