KEi r MAIL South prep cagers notch 67- 63 victory THE ARIZONA RirotUB Saturday, August 15,1970 S Page 69 C-Town, Chandler in finals By MIKE McDERMOTT MESA—Chris-Town eked its way into the championship game of the Arizona American Legion baseball tournament Thursday night, edging Chandler, 1-0, at Rendezvous Park. dler avenged its loss, beating Arcadia by a 114 score. The winner will meet Chris-Town at 8 o'clock tonight to decide the state championship. But Chris-Town is holding the upper hand. It is undefeated in the double elimination tournament. Chris-Town ace Joel Godfrey and Chandler's Greg Snowden fought a pitcher's duel through the first five innings with neither team able to push a run across. Chandler came closer though, loading the bases in the fifth. Gary Carver reached on an error to lead off the inning and was sacrificed to second. After Bob Ayala struck out, Godfrey walked Bob Albin and Reed Pew to fill the bases. But Godfrey got Snowden to ground into a force play at second, Pew the victim, ending the threat. The bases-loaded scoring opportunity must have put fire into the Chris-Town offense. Chuck Milo led off the sixth •with a single, advanced on a sacrifice and scored the winning tally on Darrell Hudson's single to left, Milo sliding head first under the right fielder's throw to catcher Joe Nix. A heads-up defensive play by Chandler prevented Chris-Town from adding an insurance run in the seventh. Gary Hough walked, and Frank Doughty followed with a routine ground ball to third baseman Bob Albin, but Albin threw wildly with both runners reaching safety. With Milo at bat, Snowden caught Doughty off first and on the ensuing rundown Hough tried to score but was cut down at the plate, Pew firing a perfect strike to Nix. Larry Bond led off the Chandler niiith with a single but catcher Rick Messner picked him off. Godfrey then got Nix to ground out and whiffed Gary Carver. Chandler jumped on Arcadia starter Rob Millsop and Frank McConnell for four runs in the first inning, two scoring via bases loaded walks, one on an error and Larry Bond's single. Hinson, Stockton leading Associated Press TULSA, Okla. - Larry Hinson and Dave Stockton, a couple of outsiders, escaped with the second round lead in the PGA National Championship yesterday as Southern Hills turned into a sullen sun-seared monster that chewed up the great names of golf. Hinson, a tour sophomore, and Stockton, a non-winner for two years, matched par 140 for two trips over the rolling, 6,962-yard layout that is armed with deep, clinging rough. They played in the relative cool of the morning, long before the temperature soared into the 100 plus range. The strength-sapping heat combined with delicate pin placements and the subtili- ties of the course itself to send the giants reeling. Jack Nicklaus lost four strokes to par on a stretch of four holes and took a fat 76 for 144. U.S. Open champion Tony Jacklin staggered in with a 79 for 153 and missed thte cut for the final two rounds. Arnold Palmer made a move with two front side birdies, then collapsed to a four-over-par 39 coming home for 72. At the 12th, his gasping army of fans saw |i»e millionaire roll up his pants and go alter a ball in shallow water He fin- Chicago Cubs manager Leo Durocher laughs at a comment from Herman Franks before the Cubs-Dodgers game in Chicago yesterday. Durocher was signed earlier in the day to manage the Cubs again in 1971, while Franks, former manager of the San Francisco Giants, Associated Press was hired to replace coach Joe Becker, who was stricken with heart trouble earlier in the week.

Prep grid stars vie today Islander lead 9V2 By BOB EGER Republic Sports Writer HONOLULU-''Whenever you beat these buys in their own park, you've got to figure you've put in a pretty good night's work." The man doing the talking was Bob Garibaldi, the big right hander whose pitching talent has been a big factor in the Phoenix Giants' success this season. He had just baffled Hawaii's big bats with a four-hitter as the Giants clipped the Islanders, 5-1, Thursday night to square their seven-game series at three games each. "I really felt sharp," said Garibaldi. "I think I threw harder than I have in a long time, and I was catching the corners. Plus, I got away with a few pitches I usually don't get away with against this club. "Doug Griffin, their leadoff hitter, is a good example. I usually work him in and out and up and down and change speeds on him and he hits me like he owns me. Tonight I got behind him 3-0 and threw him two straight fast balls right down the middle and he popped up the second one." Garibaldi walked just'^one and struck out seven as he hiked his record to 14-7 and went the distance for the 17th time. He beat Dennis Bennett (15-8), the only man in the league who has won more games than he has. It was the Giants' second straight victory over Hawaii, matching the Islanders' longest losing streak since May 18th. They haven't lost a series since then. It narrowed Hawaii's lead to 9% games in the Pacific Coast League South and kept the Islanders' magic number at 13. "If we can whittle away a couple of more games on that lead we might get them pressing a little," said Phoenix manager Hank Sauer. "I don't think this is the start of a tailspin," countered Hawaii skipper Chuck Tanner. "At least I hope not. We've just had two great games pitched against us in succession." "Garibaldi did a helluva job," said Sauer, "but we've come to expect that of him. The big difference for us is the fact that some of the guys are beginning to swing the bat for us." The recent batwork of Julio Linares, Dominie Blanco and Jim McKnight ha? given the Giants the big shot in the arm. IpiliiWiM^ Sports Editor VEHNE BOATXER More fare on hair THE CUSTOMERS ALWAYS WRITE: In your article concerning the coaches' right to show authority on length of players' hah* and sideburns. ... A boy who likes long hair and doesn't want to cut it ... Why does he play football? He must just want to raise trouble for the coach and ... be trying to gain attention. A coach doesn't coach for the money, but rather for his love of the game and for young people, so why must these people only burden the coach more? We believe the basic principle upon which a good and winning football team is based is "discipline". If a coach lets one boy have long hair and another smoke or drink and yet another keep late hours, then just where can a coach teach discipline? We also know that the basic thing wrong with a lot of America's youth is the lack of respect for authority. We believe that a person can and will stand up under a lot of today's problems if he will but learn to respect authority at all times, not when it is convenient for him. We have played under two coaches who have shown authority and carried it through . . . coaches Ranee Smith and Diz Reeves. We respect these men and would do anything and everything for them. KAYLE& WILLIS HAWS Eagar, Ariz. I admire your loyalty to your coaches. But the fallacy is fa QnUaf long hair to all the problem! of the world. A young man doesn't suddenly acquire respect for authority or stop smoking or drinking Just because he gets a haircut. There are plenty of fine, longhaired athletes and I'm sure they would resent any implication that they aren't just as dedicated or disciplined as you. * » * • ' Dear Sir: If you haven't anything else to do but write about the length of an athlete's hair I suggest that they transfer you to Dear Abby's column.

So, too, are football games. And that's theory of Cortez coach Pete Altieri, one of the North mentors in today's annual North-South All-Star grid game which climaxed the 22nd ASCA Coaching Clinic. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Lumberjack Stadium under clear skies and temperatures in the low to middle 80s. Altieri reasons that mistakes due to lack of timing could mean the difference between victory and defeat. "Neither team really has its timing down because you can't do it in such a short period," said Altieri. "Both sides have the problem — the same exact problem and that's what evens it up." This is the bane of any all-star clash from the prep ranks to the pros. "The kids are here to make it a stiff defensive game," Altieri said, "and a lot of people see it as a defensive battle all the way. I think it will be a " little more wide open." Both clubs have the personnel to break the game open at any time with the North relying on the running and passing of Central quarterback Jerry Davis. South coaches Karl Kiefer of McClintock and Wayland Harris of Florence, will look to the 9.8 speed of Eloy running back Benny Malone. Central's Ray Laing, who heads up the North staff, is expected to utilize Davis' ability tQ execute the triple option to keep the South defense off guard. "Fumbles will play a big part in the game," said Altieri, "along with pass interceptions. In All-Star games you just never can tell what will happen." Altieri pointed out that probably one of the best parts of the game will be missed by the majority of the fans. Citing the fact that both teams have superior interior lines, both offensively and defensively. Altieri figures the individual battles there could rival the exploits of the much heralded backs. This is a feeling shared by Me* Clmtock's Ron Cosner of the South's staff. . Joining Davis in the starting North backfield will be Barton Warren of South Mountain and Richard Oilier of Washington at the running backs with Jack Johnson of Round Valley at flanker.

The Tempe High graduate scored the last six points for the South All-Stars to pace the Rebs to a 67-63 victory over the North last night. The expected rout by the Southern squad failed to materialize as the Yanks played the heavily-favored Southerners near basket for basket in the 22nd annual prep all-star clash. Baker, who did not start the game, scored 12 points in the contest, but only three field goals. Two came in the last two minutes of play, one a driving layup with 52 seconds left, giving the South a 65-63 edge. He then sank two free throws with 12 seconds left to ice the game. A tenacious South defense, working without the services of 6-9 George Walls of Salpointe, held the North scoreless in the final 3:18 of the contest. The victory was the third in a row for the South and they now take a 5-3 lead in the series since reorganization of the game eight years ago. The South, coached by Westwood's Tom Bennett and Buena's Don Harris, controlled the contest throughout the first half, but could not keep up with a balanced Northern scoring attack in the third quarter. West High's Jim Irvine hit six points in that quarter to pace the attack and got excellent help from Agua Fria's Sam Johnson and Maryvale's Rob Babcock. Walls was in foul trouble early and could only contribute nine points and three rebounds in the contest. Eloy's Larry Shorty and Catalina's Bob Harbour carried the brunt of the Southern defense controlling 14 and 10 rebounds respectively. However, the North outrebound the South, 57-51.

'Bad dream? haunts Dick Associated Press TULSA, Okla.-"It was like a bad ' dream," Dick Hendrickson, 35-year-old club pro from Marlton, N.J., said yesterday after shooting an 85—15 strokes over his opening round 70—and missing the cut in the PGA Championship. Hendrickson was among the leaders- tied with Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead and others—going into the second round. He was a hero among the teaching pros. Then the dam broke. Hendrickson started 4-9-7-5 where par is 4-4-4-4. On the second hole he drove into the water and then, after being penalized, he hit his third against a fence and the ball dropped into the water again. His fifth shot flew into the deep rough. He hit his second over the green and his seventh on, two-putting for a nine. On the third, he hit two trees and wound up with a triple bogey. Chris-Town leads, 9-4 MESA—Chris-Town bats came alive last night, as it held a 94 edge over Chandler after 7% innings in what hay be the Arizona American Legion baseball championship game. If Chris-Town wins, it is all over. A Chandler win brings both teams back to do battle at 8 p.m. today. Chris-Town racked Chandler starter and 12-game 'winner Chris Harshey for 12 hits. The biggest blow of the night was in the fourth when Chris-Town scored six times on five hits, the most damaging a three-RBI bloop single to center by Frank Doughty.
