The highest return was at Monticello where Avon Maggie, at $11.20, went a mile in 2:06 3-5 to win the featured $1,500 pace. Sixth at the half, Avon Maggie pulled to the outside and began moving up. At the wire she headed Broadway N. by two lengths and Bing Senator by more. Tempana paid $11.00 to win the $5,000 pace at Roosevelt. The Chicago owned mare found plenty of room along the rail on her way to a 2:02 3-5 clocking and a three-quarter length victory. Lakewood Betty was second and Cumquat third. Batavia Downs had another $11.00 winner in Night Out. The celebration was earned by a 2:06 3-5 effort pushed in the final yards by Irish Gun, a head back at the wire, and Sarge Patterson. The race was a $1,700 pace. Momentous was little less than that with a $7.40 return at Vernon Downs. In command at the top of the stretch, he beat the pack to the wire by a full seven lengths in 2:03 4-5. Wyncrest Guy and go Noryak were second and third. The time was a new life mark for the winner. At Saratoga the feature resulted in mutuel tickets worth no more than $5.80, but for Mister A.H. the victory was worth a good part of the $1,500 purse. The race was a pace for three and four- year-olds. Turn Signal and Collingwood Boy gave chase as the eventual winner grabbed the lead at the top of the stretch. But, the margin at the end was a decisive three-quarters of a length. The time was 2:07 flat on what was. termed a slow track. ft*** OFA BLUE DEVILS - The 1971 OFA Football team will open its' season Saturday in Canton.

(O'Donnell Photo) Padres Cool Off Dodgers; Giants Remain In Freeze There won't be any playoff or World Series money for San Diego's Dave Roberts but the Padres' tough left- hander looms as a big man in the National League West pennant race. Roberts pitched San Diego a 2-1 vic- tory over Los Angeles Wednesday night, keeping the Dodgers a game back of the West-leading San Francisco.Giants, who lost 4-2 to Cincinnati. And he did it a day ahead of schedule. Manager Preston Gomez moved Roberts up a day in bis pitching rotation so that his ace lefty will be able to pitch twice in the six games the Padres have left with the Giants. Roberts' record is only 13-15 but it's with a club that has a 56-93 mark—and his 1.92 earned run average is second only to New York's Tom Seaver among NL starters. While the West race remained un- changed, Pittsburgh took a big step toward the East flag by beating St. Louis 4-1 and opening up an 8V2-game bulge over the second-place Car- dinals. Elsewhere in the NL, Chicago swept the New York Mets 6-2 and 3-2, Atlanta topped Houston 4-2 and Montreal edged Philadelphia 1-0. \It's no disgrace losing to a guy like him,\ Los Angeles Manager Walt Alston said after Roberts scattered eight hits and pitched out of a bases loaded jam in the third inning to snap the Dodgers' winning streak at eight games. The Padres, beating the Dodgers for only the fourth time in 17 meetings, took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Leron Lee and Larry Stahl singled and Lee scored when pitcher Don Sutton threw wild after fielding a bunt. Stahl homered in the sixth after the Dodgers had tied it in the second on Sutton's RBI infield single. Pete Rose's run-scoring triple and Lee May's RBI single in the fifth snapped a 1-1 tie and sent the Giants to their third straight loss and 10th in 11 games. The Reds' Jim McGlothlin -held the stum- bling Giants to six hits, including homers by Willie McCovey and Dick Dietz. Pittsburgh's Dock Ellis, pitching for the first time in two weeks because of elbow trouble, worked seven innings to run his record to 19-7. Most of his of- fensive helpcameiin the fourth on Dave Cash's RBI single and Al Oliver's two- run homer. Ted Simmons homered for St. Louis, which lost for the third time in four games while the Pirates were winning for the ninth time in 11. Bill Hands pitched a five-hitter and drove in two runs as the Cubs beat the Mets in the opener. Then Burt Hooton yielded only three hits—hone for 6 2-3 Karras Turns Down Offer Alex Karras can't play football for the Detroit Lions and won't play for the Washington Redskins. The block-busting defensive tackle was placed on waivers by the Lions Monday night and nixed an offer to play for the Redskins Wednesday. \I'm grateful for the offer but no thanks,\ the 6-foot-2,250-pound veteran told Redskins Coach George Allen. The National Football League later voided Washington's claim on Karras, saying his contract is non-assignable. The NFL said Karras is, in effect, a free agent and can sign with whichever team he desires. Karras wasn't the only one upset by the cut. The Detroit News reported its switchboard was jammed with protest calls and phones at the Lions office jangled with calls from irate fans eager to express their criticism of the move. innings, and Billy Williams hit a ninth- inning homer as Chicago completed the sweep. Hank Aaron's 14th homer in the last 24 games—his 44th of the season and 636th of his career—and Phil Niekro's four-hit pitching highlighted Atlanta's victory over Houston. Montreal's victory came on the four- hit pitching of Ernie McAnally and Bobby Wine's sacrifice fly following a threebase error by Philadelphia second- baseman Denny Doyle in the > eighth inning. The Phillies' Woody Fryman pitched a sixhitter. A's Wrap Up AL West; McLainHits 20 Losses Badgers Bring Wins Streak To Syracuse SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Syracuse University opens its 82nd football season Saturday against a Wisconsin squad that already has gotten off to an impressive start. The homestanding Orangemen, who overcame major racial distention in their ranks last year to post a 6-4 record, are shooting for their 14th open- ing-game victory'unver coach Ben Sch- wartzwalder's tutelage. Schwartzwalder also has had non- losing teams for 21 of Jiis 22 seasons at the helm. The Badgers, long the doormats of the Big Ten, blanked Northern Illinois, 31-0, last Saturday to continue their win streak over two seasons to three games, their longest since 1963. Syracuse won its two previous outings against Wisconsin, the latest a 43-7 pasting in 1969. After the Wisconsin game it faces two other Big Ten op- ponents—Northwestern and Indiana— on the road the next two Saturdays. The Orangemen, tabbed in pre-season . speculation as the best in the East this year, have had injury and illness problems but will lack only offensive guard Chuck Chulada and running back Greg Allen among projected starters. Chulada has been troubled by a leg injury and Allen came down with in- fectious hepatitis just after fall practice began. Defensive tackle Joe Ehrmann, an All-America candidate, has shaken off slow recovery from knee surgery, and was definitely assigned a starting role after impressing Schwartzwalder at an intrasquad scrimmage last Saturday. The Badgers' explosive offense is led by quarterback Neil Graff, who com- pleted 8 of 14 passes for 111 yards against Northern Illinois. Graff's prime receivers are Larry Mialik, Al Hannan and Tim Klosek, while Rufus Fergerson, a 5-foot-6, 185- pound fireplug, leads the rushing corps. For Syracuse, quarterback Bob Woodruff's backfield mates are juniors Marty Januskiewicz and Roger Praetorius and sophomore Brian Hambleton. Pop Warner Meeting Tonight, City Hall Pop Warner Association will meet tonight at 7 p.m. in City Hall. Lou White, president, noted that final plans will be made for the annual tag day sale to be held next weekend. \Nice little hit there, bud,\ Charles O. Finley smiled, patting Sal Bando on the back. . The hit was anything but little, though. It was big in distance—a two-run homer in the eigth inning—and big in meaning, powering Oakland to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday to give the A's the American League West championship. Actually, Bando didn't give it to them. Kansas City did. The runner-up Royals, by winning' against California, would have held onto a mathematical chance of tying Oakland for the flag, particularly after the A's lost 7-3 to the White Sox in the second half of their twi-night doubleheader. But the Royals eliminated themselves from contention while Oakland was halfway through its second game, losing 6-2 to the Angels and giving the A's their first title since 1931 when Connie Mack piloted the Philadelphia Athletics to the American League pennant. In other American League action, the New York Yankees beat Baltimore 4-2, Boston edged Cleveland 6-5, Detroit topped Washington 4-2 and Minnesota squeezed by Milwaukee 1-0. \Just winning it, getting it all over with, was a big relief to all of us,\ Bando said after his blast, which followed Reggie Jackson's double, handed 20-game winner Wilbur Wood his 12th loss and gave the triumph to recently reacquired Jim \Mudcat\ Grant. \We were trying too hard and not scoring any runs lately,\ Bando said. The A's had lost seven of their previous 12 games. \We were spinning our wheels and standing still.\ With 13 games still to go before the A's enter the American League playoffs—presumably against Baltimore—Bando said there are two ways of looking at the rest of the season. \First it's true we may not stay real sharp mentally. But secondly, it gives us a lot of time to rest up and get our pit- ching primed and ready.\ Jackson threw Manager Dick Williams into a shower after the twin- bill, then went after Finley, the A's flamboyant owner who bought the club in 1961 and moved them from Kansas City to Oakland in 1968. But Finley stopped his young out- fielder with the remark: \Let's wait'U we win everything—then you can do what you want.\ Andy Messersmith fired a four-hitter for the Angels and sparked their four- run second inning with a two-run homer. California also collected five singles off Bruce Dal Canton in the uprising. Ken Berry knocked in the Angels' final two runs with an eighth-inning double. Messersmith, boosting his record to 17- 13 with his sixth victory in seven starts, limited the Toyals to unearned runs in the sixth and seventh innings. Bobby Murcer snapped a seventh-inning 1-1 tie against Baltimore's 18-game winner, Mike Cuellar, with his 24th home run of the year, then Ron Swoboda wrapped up the Yankees' victory with a two-run single in the ninth. Ron Hansen also homered for the Yanks and Brooks Robinson had one for the Orioles. Joe Lahoud's two-out runscoring double in the top of the ninth gave the Red Sox their victory after the Indians lied it in the eighth on Ted Uhlaender's RBI single. Rico Petrocelli hit a two-run homer for the Red Sox. Ali Will Fight 2 Exhibitions PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Former heavyweight champion Muhammed Ali agreed Wednesday to fight two five- round exhibition matches with his spar- ring partners in Cherry Hill, N.J., on Oct. 16. Proceeds from the matches, which mark Ali's first public appearance in the ring in the Philadelphia-south Jersey area, will go to the Cherry Hill Little League, the Camden County Mental Health Auxiliary and the un- derprivileged children of Camden County. Ali will box sparring partners Eddie Brooks and Alonzo Johnson at the Cherry Hill Arena. Brooks scored several knockdowns over Ali when the exchamp was training for his bout with Jimmy Ellis in Houston, Tex., last July. Valley League Predictions County Teams To Prevail The Valley League football season gets under way Saturday and in a sense its a battle between St. Lawrence and Jefferson counties. Two of the St, Lawrence county teams Heuvelton and Lisbon are in Jefferson county this Saturday playing Augustinain and Belleville respectively. Meanwhile Coach Fran Holleran's Morristown Green Rockets go against Parishv'ille at home. Clifton-Fine draws the bye. Morristown 24-ParishviIle 12— The Green Rockets are said to be improved over last season. Parishville had a rebuilding year last season and should be improved, but we give the nod to Morristown at home. Lisbon 18-Augustinian 16-Its hard to pick a winner here not knowing what Augustinian has. Both teams tied for the league championship last year, but Lisbon socked it to the Carthage team in the finale last year. Lisbon lost several key players from the 1971 team. Heuvelton 20- Belleville 14- Another toss-up. Heuvelton's John Tehonica is working with several new faces this fall but has some veterans baek. Belleville is reported to b e strong. Saturday will tell the story. [ Crushed Stone Asphalt Concrete Commercial- Industrial Paving McCONVILLE, INC.
