Browns rout unbeaten Dallas, 42-10 Williams runs wild in Packer win Associated Press PITTSBURGH - Travis Williams, former Arizona State star, scored three touchdowns, including an 83-yard punt return and a 96-yard kickoff return and then set up the decisive score with a 31- yard run, as the Green Bay Packers turned back the Pittsburgh Steelers, 3834, yesterday in a National Football League contest. Veteran Bart Starr, who entered the game in the final minutes of the third quarter after sitting out the first three with a sore arm, fired a 48-yard touchdown pass with five minutes left to Carroll Dale to put the Packers ahead for good. The Steelers had come from behind at the start of the fourth quarter to tie the score at 31-31 when Dick Shiner, taking over for injured Terry Hanratty, fired a 53-yard touchdown pass to Roy Jefferson. Then Gene Mingo, recovering his on- side kick, added a 32-yard field goal and the Steelers led, 34-31.

Gerry Meehan, who played in Runner armor last year, got a pair of goals in one of Seattle's two blitzing salvos that saw the Totes score twice in 21 seconds In the first period and two more in a 21 span in the second. One more Seattle point in the third Iced victory as Phoenix fought back all night after scoring the game—opening goal 3:25 in the first period. Remarkable Sandy Snow set up that point, fighting the puck out of the corner, and feeding Jim Patterson a 12-footer in front of the net. Then after Bob Courcey and Jack Michie put the Totes ahead 2-1, Garry Marsh pulled the Runners even with a 30-footer from the right wing early in the second period. Median's pair just about settled the scuttling — his first on a 30-foot angle shot that went in off goalie Don Caley's glove, the other a rocket from outside the faceoff circle. The Runners, who forced much of the night's action against Seattle's knock- 'em-flat defense, pulled within one goal on Bob McCord's long shot early in the third quarter. But Don Chiz rattled another Totem goal off Caley's glove to mid-period and the goals were enough to offset Larry Lund's late point for Phoenix with 3:51 left. The Runners pulled Caley and put six shotmakers into action trying for a tie in the final 45 seconds but couldn't.pen- etrate goalie Chris Worthy who had 24 saves for the night. Caley, behind reasonably steady Phoenix guardians, made 20. The Roadrunners go to Vancouver today and meet the Canucks tomorrow night in a 9 p.m., Phoenix time game. Thursday they are at Portland.

GMam Robertson Foster Green Rackley Van.ll— lsr Totals ARIZONA STATE'S Sun Devils proved beyond any doubt Saturday night that they CAN win the big ones. After early season losses to Oregon State and Utah the talk started flowing again about A-State and the big ones that got away. We've always felt that was a bad rap anyway. It's true the Devils have lost some big ones, but they've won some big ones, too. Last year's rousing victory over Arizona in the season finale was no small matter. And though they're usually far outmanned, the. Devils have compiled an outstanding record against intersectional competition. In terms of national recognition, few games have been as important as this year's season opener against Minnesota. Maybe the Gophers aren't a national power at the; moment, but they proved with their 85-8 victory over Iowa Saturday that they're not all bad. Saturday's 30-14 victory over the very good Wyoming team was one of the best all-around efforts in A-State history, And it was a remarkable job of coach* ing. Frank Kush and his talented staff of assistants worked tirelessly in their two weeks of preparation for the Cowboys. The 'Pokes have very few fjaws, but the ASU staff found them and the Devils explpited them to the fullest. After getting an early lead, the Devils refused to sit on it, as so many teams tried against Wyoming with disas- • -••••• ..,,., Devils &pt thf throstle open,putting the baU in the air 45 times de- the fact that they led from box to wire. They rolled up 412 yards total offense against a team that had permitted just 192 per game going into the contest. And the Devil defense was brilliant, allowing just 14 net yards rushing to a team that had averaged 182 yards per game on the ground. ,. Devil defenders intercepted; five passes, me most'anybody ever has swiped from the Cowboys, and swarmed in to drop Wyoming passers for losses on nine, occasions. Rush's pre-game evaluation was right on target. He said the Devils could score, despite Wyoming's defensive reputation. ! He said the Devils could win if they coukj find a way to stop Wyojning's balanced offensive attack, and that's just what they did. H« also said a healthy Cal Demery and Mike Branson were tbe Jceys to A-State's offensive attack. They were healthy, and all they did was snag 14 'passes for 255 yards between them. There can be little doubt in the mind of anyone who saw ASU's one-point Joss to Utah that a healthy Demery and Brunson would have turned the that one. But even with that blemish on their record, the Devils are very much in coh- tentiqn for '-their'first.'Western••Athletic' Conference crown ever.:' ! \ They did WAC football jnv general a big favor, turning a Wyoming runaway into a three-team struggle that's sure to Kaiser Open playoff halted by darkness Associated Press NAPA, Calif. -- Darkness halted a sudden death playoff for the top prize in the $140,000 Kaiser International Open golf tournament yesterday, and Jack Nicklaus, Bill Casper and George Archer will resume play this morning. Don January, a leathery Texas veteran, also was involved in a four-way tie for the top spot with a 72-hold score of 273, but managed only a par on the first extra hole while Nicklaus, Archer and Gasper got birdie fours. Darkness forced a halt at that point — the first time in many years such a situation has existed — and tournament officials were forced to schedule the remainder of the playoff .beginning .at.9. a.m. It was the llth playoff of the year on the pro tour, and the third involving four players. ; Nicklaus, the burly Golden Bear from Columbus, Ohio, had led or shared the lead for the first three rounds, but found the touch had deserted him on the final round. He carried a two-stroke lead into the last round on the 6,849-yard, par-72 Silverado Country Club course, but managed only a 71. January charged in with a 66, Casper had a 67 and Archer, the 6-foot-6 Masters champion, rolled in a five-foot putt on the final hole of regulation play for a birdie that clinched him a share of the lead with a 69. January was short of the green in four, chipped up to one foot and made it for a par. . Then came Buffalo Bill, a two-time U.S. Open champion, who carefully lined up an IB-footer and dropped it for a bird. Archer then rolled in an eight-footer and a halt was called. Nicklaus ran afoul on the back nine, taking bogeys from traps on the llth and 13th holes, and failing to get a bird on the three closing holes, all relatively easy. ; Casper and January each birdied two of the last three, and Archer saved his dramatic effort for the last one. Lou Graham, with a final 69, was in a share for the top spot until he took a bogey on the 16th. He finished fifth with a 274, followed by Dan Sikes and Chi Chi Rodriguez, tied 1 at 275. Sikes had a closing 67 and Rodriguez a 70.

The Browns capitalized on three fumble recoveries and a pass interception to score four of their touchdowns. The win enabled the Browns to retain the National Football League's Century Division lead with a 5-1-1 record. Dallas leads the Capitol Division with a 6-1 mark. Walt Garrison fumbled on the Dallas 48-yard line early in the first quarter, and Brown linebacker John Garlington recovered. On the next play—the first of the game for the Browns—Nelsen threw to Warfield for tlie touchdown. Craig Baynham fumbled the next kickoff, and Alvin Mitchell recovered for the Browns on the Dallas 12. On the third down Nelsen hit Collins with an 11- yard scoring pass. After Mike Howell's sixth pass interception of the season early in the second quarter, the Browns moved 70 yards in seven plays to score. A pass interference call on an end zone pass intended for Collins gave the Browns the ball on the Dallas one, and Ron Johnson went the final yard to make it 21-0. The Cowboys, who had beaten the Browns in their last three regular season meetings, finally scored on a 14-yard field goal by Mike Clark after Mel Renfro intercepted a Nelsen pass and ran it back 41 yards.

Cook, who did not play in three of four straight Bengal losses, rifled two touchdown passes to Chip Myers and the Bengal defense came up with four interceptions and a fumble recovery to end the Raiders' unbeaten streak of 15 games. Myers made two spectacular catches for 35 and eight-yard touchdowns as the Raiders lost their first game this year. Myers caught only one pass in the Bengals' first seven games. His first score came after Fletcher Smith picked off one of four interceptions Daryle Lamonica threw. Later in the second period Jesse Phillips sped 83 yards—longest run in the AFL this season—to the Oakland 10.. Three plays later Myers wrestled the ball from Raider Willie Brown in the end zone for a 24-0 lead and ended a four-game losing streak. Lamonica rallied the Raiders for 14 fourth-quarter points but it was too late for the last of the unbeaten APL squads. Hewritt Dixon, just activated by Oakland this week, fumbled at tbe Bengal 15 and Ken Riley recovered to snuff out a Raider comeback in the final period. Lamonica had brought Oakland to within 14 points, passing nine yards to Fred Biletnikoff and 43 yards to Warren Wells before Dixon's fumble.
