"I thought the All-Stars played exceptionally well," he said. "they were big and strong on offense and defense up front, and at times we had trouble moving them and stopping them." But the Dolphins got a pair of touchdowns from workhorse Larry Csonka and those, together with a customarily stingy defense, delivered a 14-3 Don Shula Has Praise For AlLStars By ED SAINSBURY UPI Sports Writer CHICAGO (UPI) - Both the winners and the losers agreed Friday the defeated College A!J- Stars had nothing to be ashamed of. "I thought John McKay did an excellent job with his team," victorious Coach Don Shula of the Miami Dolphins said of his rival director of the College All- Stars. And Shula had words of praise too for two of the All- Stars individually, quarterback Bert Jones and tight end Charlie Young. "Jones impressed me," Shula said. "He threw a couple of sideline cuts and the ball got to the receiver real fast. He's going to be a good pro for Balti• more. Then Young caught a CHICAGO (UPI) - In modestlcoupk 0 f passes and he blocked victory for Shula's Super Bowl] j champs. It was the 2lth win for the pros in the «Hjame series and their 10th straight victory. The collegians have won only nine times and after Griese directed the Dolphins 60 yards in 10 plays to open the game with Csonkas first touchdown, it seemed to end their chances again. "We had a good drive at first ,and then we sputtered," Shula jsaid, "so I switched from Bob (Griese) to Earl (Morrall) and he got the offense going again." Morrall piloted the Dolphins tygfster-Mafl SPORTS Galesburg, Hi., Saturday, July 28, 1973 Page 13 55 yards in seven plays for a last period touchdown, passing twice to Jim Mandich for 24 and 11 yards to spark the effort. "Their defense was tough," Morrall said. "They were playing a double zone, jand Jim got open and made two good catches." The All-Stars cashed only oftfe of three good scoring chances. Once, on first down from the 10, Greg Pruitt fumbled and Manny Fernandez recovered for the Dolphins. Then James Thomas recovered a fumbled snap from center Jim Langer on the Dolphins eight, but three plays left the ball on the nine, and Ray Guy missed a 16-yard field goal try. I Guy's field goal from the 10 for the collegians' only points .came after the stars had a first down on the Dolphin one and couldn't carry the ball into the lendzorte. Twice Otis Armstrong failed to gain and a penalty (cost five yards before Guy's Ifield goal, Guy was a major factor in 'the All-Star performance as he punted four times for a- 44.1 yard average to keep the Dolphins at bay, and Shtrii-Jaid he would be "a real asseP* to the Oakland Raiders, ,who: signed him just prior ,H£ the, game. if* Miami, led by Csonka with % yards in 17 carries, rushed Jot 173 yards and 251 overall while, holding the stars to 79 rushing and 54 passing for a 133 total. for a first quarter touchdown.

"They played a double zone and Jim got through and got clear and made two good catches." By AARON RAND MONTREAL (UPI) - The last time Hubert Green was in Montreal to play golf was in 1971 at the Canadian Open. He finshed in a tie for 27th with a 72-hole score of 291. Now, two years later, at the same golf club and at the same tournament he is tied for the lead with only two rounds to play. Lest you think that Green has not dejie anything on the PGA tour, he collected a cool $15,000 for his victory at the Tallahassee Open, and he ranks 20th on the PGA money list with winnings of more than $67,000. SVuld he win here he would rrack the S100.C00 mark with the $35,000 first prize. After a sizzling round of five- under-par 67 in the opening round Thursday, Green came back with a 71 Friday to give him a 36-hole total of 138. That score was good for a first place tie with Forrest Fezler. Green came onto the 18th seven under par which would have put him all alone in first place ahead of Fezler, but bogeyed the hole and had to settle for the tie. Green, who was born and still lives in Birmingham, Ala., doesn't think he can play the same way he did in the second round and still hope to win the championship. At least that's what he said. "I think the eventual winner here is going to have to play (his course better than I did toda", I'll tell you that. But I realiv don't know, I can't tell you for sure." While most of the other golfers have made some predictions on what scores they think might win this tournament, Green shies away from such matters. His mind is on his golf game alone. While Green was out taming the par 72, 6,905 yard course here at Richelieu Valley, many of the other golfers were having their difficulties. The cut came at 148 and among those who missed were Gary Player, U.S. Open champion Johnny Miller, and defending champion Gay Brewer. Bobby Mitchell, who had a*" two-stroke lead until he dumped his approach shot into a creek^, and took a triple-bogey seven at * the 445-yard 18th hole, was alone in third place at 139 with a 70 Friday. First round leader Hale Irwin, who had 75 Friday, and British Open champion Tom Weiskopf were at 140, and there were seven players at 141 including Lee Trevino and r Bruce Crampton. t Bench's Homers Lead Reds Got a SUNBURN??

Seott had been subjected to fines of 5200 a day while staying out of training camp, and refused to come to camp without a contract. The Dolphins, on the other hand, refused to negotiate unless he came to camp. READ THE WANT ADS!
