Wednesday. April 9. 1975. THE HERALD. Provo. Utah-Page 15 OREM'S J.D. BUSSIO crosses first base safely as Provo first baseman Dave Valgardson reaches for the ball. Watching the action is Mick Peterson, who is assisting new head coach Dick Belliston with the Golden Tigers this season. The Bulldogs bunched all their runs in the final two innings for a 6-1 victory. Pholo bv Meb Andrnton Provo Downs Orem, 6-1, in Opener ByMJKETWITTY Herald Sports Writer Provo High's bats, chilled by cool weather and sharp pitching by J.D. Bussio. came alive in the late innings as the Bulldogs opened Region Four baseball Tuesday afternoon at Orem Park with a 6-1 victory over the Golden Tigers. The victory gives Leonard Mackay's crew a 5-2 overall record and a 1-0 league record going into today's home game with Murray. New coach Dick Belliston, whose team is 2-5 overall, is still looking for his first league triumph. The Tigers are 0-2 after losing at Murray, 12-1, on Monday. Orem's next game is Tuesday at Hillcrest. Tuesday's contest was a stalemate for five innings as Bussio gave up only one hit and Greg Peterson scattered three hits for Provo. Both teams lost chances to score in the opening inning. Jim Byrd tripled for Provo but was stranded and Kerry Durfey singled and stole a couple of bases but was unable to cross the plate. Then the Bulldogs, facing the possibility of extra innings on a cold afternoon, came alive as Dean Corless was hit by a pitch, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on another triple by Byrd. Coach Belliston replaced Bussio with Mike McGinn and Peterson whacked the next pilch for a single to sco're Byrd. The Tigers got into further trouble when a third strike went to the backstop and another batter was hit but Durfey came in to end the bases - loaded threat with a strikeout. The bottom of the sixth was filled with protest for Coach Mackay after Durfey singled and apparently interfered with Tony Asay at second on a double play attempt. Durfey was out but Alan Montana Draws 'Reprimand' MISSOULA, Mont. lUPI) The Committee on Infractions of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has advised the University of Montana that the NCAA will "privately reprimand" the school for violation of association rules and regulations. The findings of the committee were the result of a March 2:> hearing in New Orleans. The hearing related to an "official inquiry" conducted by the NCAA last year, following the 1973 allegations that the UM athletic department had misused federal funds for recruiting purposes. Um football coach Jack Swarthout, then also the school's athletic director, was acquitted of criminal charges following a lengthy trial two years ago. He and others in th<? UM athletic department had allegedly misused federal Work Study Program funds. The NCAA Committee on Infractions wrote a letter to UM President Richard C. Bowers- this week, saying it had found the school "violated several NCAA rules and regulations.'' Copter Crashes ARLINGTON, Tex.

Bruins Post Playoff Victory Bjamson was safe at first, went to second on an error, to third on a passed ball and scored on a balk. Provo was upset about the lack of an interference call and about the balk as those two decisions cut the margin to 2-1 with only one out. But Peterson settled down and got a couple of batters to fly out. Provo added four insurance runs in the seventh when Dan Crandall and Corless opened the inning with walks. Byrd continued his heavy hitting with a double to make the score 4-1. An error helped Byrd score and, after pinchrunner Lynn Greenwood was caught in a rundown, Rob Hymas singled home Scott Fletcher. Dal Hills opened the bottom of the seventh with a single but was erased by a double play. He had three hits for Orem and Durfey had the other two. Byrd had three hits for Provo as each team collected five hits. Bussio struck out eight batters in five innings while Peterson had seven strikeouts.
