Oates' two goals
push Express
past Dallas, 5-1
Special to the Daily
PONTIAC-Sam Oates' two goals paced the Detroit Express to a 5-1
victory over the Dallas Tornado last night at the Silverdome.
The triumph was the sixth of the season for Detroit and snapped a two-
game losing streak.
The Express didn't even allow the crowd of 9,688 the chance to get com-
fortable in their seats before notching their first tally. Forward Don Nar-
diello scored 25 seconds into the game to get the Express charged.
Dalles tied the score at 22:30 of the first half when midfielder Peter
Gruber scored on a rebound shot off of Express goalie Jim Brown.
It was totally the Express after that. Oates scored his first goal on a
header after a perfect feed from forward Pato Margetic 29:38 into the first
The dazzling, young 20-year-old Margetic then danced his way to the
third Detroit score of the half with only 35 seconds remaining.
In the second half, the Express didn't get a shot on goal for the first 15
minutes, but when they finally got the shot, they made it count. Margetic
placed another perfect lob kick right into the penalty area where striker
Gary Bannister banged it home to put the Express out front, 4-1.
Oates put the icing on the cake with 3:50 remaining in the game when he
knocked in Nardiello's pass in front of the net for his seventh goal of the year,
which is tops on the club.
Nardiello's opening goal set a team record for the quickest goal scored
in a contest. The previous record was 1:45 and was held by Keith Furphy.
The win still leaves Detroit in the cellar of the Central Division of the
NASL American Conference with a record of 6-9. The Express' next game
is against the Memphis Rogues at Memphis on Saturday night.

THE CHICAGO CUBS' Ken Henderson concedes himself out as Cincinnati
second baseman Junior Kennedy looks for his next victim in the fourth inning of
yesterday's contest at Wrigley Field. Kennedy fired to first to successfully
complete this double play, but Chicago enjoyed most of the day's success,
blasting the Reds, 7-0.

Michigan golfer John Morse, who
won the Big Ten individual title last
month, shot a one-under-par 71 yester-
day to capture medalist honors for
qualifying in the Michigan Amateur
golf championship.
Morse's round at the Belvedere Golf
Course in Charlevoix, along with his
Tuesday performance of 67 at Antrim
Dells in Atwood, gives him a three-
stroke lead going into today's match
play. Another Wolverine linkster,
junior Steve Maddalena, is runner-up
with a two-round total of 141.

Chaney hired as
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP)-Veteran Boston Celtics guard
Don Chaney will become assistant coach of the Detroit
Pistons, the team with the worst record in the National
Basketball Association last season.
The Pistons announced yesterday that Chaney, a 12-year
NBA veteran, will step down as an active player to help
newly-appointed Detroit Coach Scotty Robertson try to turn
the Pistons into a winning team.
The NBA team won just 16 games last season. The last
time the Pistons had a winning record was 1976-77, when they
finished five games above the .500 mark.
Detroit General Manager Jack McCloskey said Chaney
will serve as Robertson's bench assistant and will be respon-
sible for practice and scouting.
The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Chaney will join the Pistons on
June 27 to direct the club's participation in the California
Summer Pro League.
"Don Chaney brings the Celtics' winning tradition in his
background as well as a solid grounding in fundamentals,
especially defense," McCloskey said.

NEW YORK (AP)-American League President Lee

Piston assistant
MacPhail has fined Oakland Manager Billy Martin for "over-
aggressive dissent" during an on-the-field argument with
home plate umpire Dale Ford June 8 and has rejected Mar-
tin's claim that Ford pushed him during the altercation.
A statement released yesterday by MacPhail's office in-
dicated the league president's action, which was taken after
Martin asked the AL to investigate Ford's conduct. Martin
had charged after the June 8 game in Oakland between the
A's and Boston that Ford had pushed him and, after the
game, had challenged him to a fight.

progressively worse, the Tigers said.

The Red Sox added three runs in the
