Trevino was one stroke better with a 67 but still one short for 72 holes and settled for second money of 123,404. Trevino ran his career earnings to $985,138.

Ingli§ Scores Two CINCINNATI (UPI) - Bill Inglis scored two goals in the fmal period Sunday night to help Cincinnati beat the Virginia Redwings 6-2 as the Swords evened up their American Hockey League Calder Cup championship playoff series at one game apiece. The best of seven game series resumes Tuesday night in Norfolk, Va. i Canadiens Top Flyers In Playoffs By MIKE AVENENTI PHILADELPHIA (UPI) Nothing went right for the Philadelphia Flyers Sunday in the fourth game of the Stanley Cup semifhials with the Montreal Canadiens. They had the home ice advantage. They skated five men to three at one point. They even played a tape recording of Kate Smith singing "God Bless America" instead of the National Anthem—a sure good luck anthem here. ' But Kate Smith o>uidn't help the Flyers Sunday as the Canadiens struck for three goals in the second period en route to a 4-1 victory. The two teams now move to Montreal for the fith game, with the Canadiens leading the series, 3-1. "I think the pressure is on the home team," said Cana­ diens' Coach Scotty Bowman, shrugging off the home ice advantage. "When we left Montreal, Philadelphia had the home ice advantage. The pressure was on them to keep the home ice advantage. It doesn't make senso really. You play all year to get home ice advantage and then it works against you." Bowman and Flyers' Coach Fred Shero agreed that lanky Montreal goalie Ken Dryden sealed Philadelphia 's fate early in the second period. The Flyers were ahead 1-0 and had a great opportunity to cie the score when Montreal's Larry Robinson and Jin. Hoberts were sent to the penalty box. But Dryden made the difference for one minute and 23 seconds. Dryden kicked out three shots as Flyers swarmed around him, and Serge Savard, who broke his. stick, skated helplessly around the goal. Dryden admitted "it's really tough" to defend two men shy but said his attitude changed towards the positive during that time. "At first you say 'we've got to hold them,' " he said. " 'We can 't let them score more than one goal.' Then after a while, you begin thinking, 'we won't let them score any goals.' " With both teams skating five on a side after the penalties had elapsed, Montreal then wrapped up the game with goals by Rejean Houle, Marc Tardif and Yvan Cournoyer. Frank Mahovlich got an assist on Coumoyer's goal, plus a "freebie" goal in the closing seconds of the game after Philadelphia pulled its goalie.
