This issue is dedicated to all you dilligent students, as you are vigorously churning out brilliant essays at the last minute and cramming your overworked heads with facts, artifacts, and pseudofacts. Take heart; exams will soon be over and then you can devote yourself totally to holiday decadence. In the meantime, if you get the feeling you’re about to crack up, remember there comforting words from Seneca: “There is no genius without some touch of madness,” (or something to that effect).

Evolution and Thermodynamids

by Dumont

Mr. M. Rennie questioned some valid points (Letter to the Imprint of Nov. 16) raised in my letter entitled “Anthropology, Science - Magic” (Imprint Nov. 9). Mr. Reunie claims that skull 1470 was found intact by L. Leakey and needed no reconstruction at all. This is a matter of opinion. The top of the fossilized skull appears to be in one piece with a part of the fossilized forehead deformed inwards. But a large part of the fossilized facial bones are missing. But it really does not matter what the fossilized skull looks like. Even if it is complete, the fossils do not contain the original material of the skull and consequeritly one can not claim that the fossil even resembles the briginal. Mr. Rennie also claims that I used the second law of thermodynamics out of context. He writes: “The basic premise of the law is that a closed system will tend toward increasing disorder, i.e., maximum entropy. Dr. J. Schroeder left out the key phrase “closed system.” If the world were a closed system than evolution would have contradicted that key law. The earth is not a close! system. Additional energy i”s constantly added in the form of solar radiation.” -My comment about the second law and disorder was as follows: “Another interpretation-of the second law of thermodyn&nics is that the universe moves from a state of higher order to a more random state. The hypothesis of evolution requires the reverse.” The universe is considered to be a closed system. So I can not see how I have used the second law out of context. However, may I explain things a bit further? Firstly, the behaviour of matter in accordance with the second law of thermodynamics makes an evolution of the cosmos from total randomness or chaos to the orderly movement of stars and planets impossible. So the existence of the non-closed, orderly system earth cm not be exp’-

pro-

cess, as the universe is subjected everywhere to the law of decay described by thermodynamics. Secondly, local addition of energy does not necessarily lead to a continuous ordering of atoms and molecules. Even man uses energy for construction and destruction. A process of evolution of living species however does not require just more order, but a very complex, a very sophisticated type aof higher order. So the question is, how was it possible, that nature left to itself formed much more complex life from non-living random molecules and then co&inued to increase the complexity in the direction of improbabilities. For example, already the probability of random formation of a protein molecule complicated enough to bear life is negligible. The assumption of infinite time for evolution is not useful as it removes the likelihood of equilibrium necessary for these formations. Thus, the concept of evolution of the earth, of life and of contradicts man thermodynamics. Survival of the

fittest

provides

a possible

mechanism for evolution, but not an explanation how the fittest evolve. The second law of thermodynamics ehdorses creation, it strengthens the belief that God created order which now decays into disorder. Just like order created by man disintegrates, when left to itself. Mr. Rennie writes that letters to the editor are not a place for personal glory. I have to agree with him on this point one hundred percent. Readers attack me on something I never wrote. I have been denounced, ridiculed and accused of just about anything in the letter section. I began to write letters to the editors, because I am a non-conformist and I felt it was time for truth.

From January to July, 1978, 3.7 million work days were lost

through strikes in Canada. This is up 91.9 per cent over the year before. During the same period, more than one million Canadians were unemployed and our dollar hit a 45 year low. The recent CUP-W strike is a classic illustiation of the demise of the work ethic and the abuse of the right to strike. The information below is taken directly from the National Citizens’ Coalition Consensus, Vol. 3, No. 6, printed in -October, 1978. It is normal for unions to open their bargaining with demands on the high side and then proceed to negotiate a compromise. CUPW’s demands were made in June, 1977. In October, 1978 the demands were the same; Despite counteroffers by the Post Office, CUPW refused to move from its opening position during the 18 months it “bargained” with the Post Office. The Post Office invited CUPW to start negotiations January 14, 1977. Six weeks later, the union leadership agreed to start. On May 19, 1977 formal negotiations began. After 60 minutes the union broke them off. Despite repeated invitations, CUPW did not return until October 3. During the next two months, four meetings were held. Only a few minor issues were settled and accordingly the Post Office applied on November 3 for conciliation. Because of the vague wording of the union’s position, conciliation talks did not get under way until April 10, 1978. Between then and July IO, 30 hearings were held. On July 10, private hearings began. None of CUPW’s major demands had been modified and on August 15 the union asked that the hearings be terminated. At no time did the union leadership inform its rank and file members of the demands it was making. These demands included: complete elimination of casual labour; unlimited union veto

on any technological change, any addition to existing machinery, any changes in the processing of mail or work methods and any changes in postal services operation; increase in basic hourly wage for a mail handler (PO 2) from $5.92 to $11, an 85% increase; for a postal clerk (PO 4) from $6.04 to $11, an 82.1% increase; for a mail dispatcher [PO 5) from $6.12 to $11, up 79.7%; increase in shift premiuni 40 cents per hour to $3.63, up 807%; in Saturday premium from 60 cents to $22, up 3566%; in Sunday premium from 75 cents to $33, up 4300%; and overtime at double time. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is asking for wages of $17,218 per year for a 30 hour work week, compared to the average industritil wage of $13,622 (Canada Labour Gazette). After allowing for coffee breaks, the actual time working is only 12 hours. For a regular Sunday 6 hour shift, involving two and onehalf hours work, a CUPW worker would receive $264 for that day only. If it was an overtime shift he would earn $330 for that day. In order to handle the same volume of mail the PO& Office would have to hire an additional 45,000 employees. The right to strike is a reasonable bargaining tool when used responsibly. However, when a group of people abuse this, or any right, they forfeit that right and lose credibility and trust in the eyes of the public. Mike Cussen

Ontario Last weekend, Ontario student newspapers urged UW students to support the Chevron in today’s referendum. A motion of support for UW’s official student newspaper passed with one dissenting vote. The Ontario Regional Canadian University Press (ORCUP) conference also rejected a recommendation of the CUP commission calling for condemnation for “certain of the Chevron

pus Centre as a result of the cut. “This is simply in line with what other departments have been asked to do, and we were in the fortunate position of having money to put into it,” said Groom. Matthews told Imprint that all university departments have been asked to reduce their salary budgets by an average of two and cent for one-half per 1979-80. He explained that under the current projections of UW finance, an overall decrease of 2.83 per cent in the salary budgets and an increase of 2.93 per cent in non-salary items is needed. Matthews said that unless‘ the projections ‘are altered, further cuts. will be necessary, including from the Campus Centre budget. Groom thinks that the Campus Centre salaries have already been trimmed as much as possible. “When the co-ordinator’s position was made from a part-time to full-time (job) ,” he explained, “we had trimmed all the ,shifts on the turnkeys that we could possibly trim, without cutting the services.” But Matthews said that the Campus Centre might have to re-evaluate its per: sonnel requirements in the future, since it may not be able to accommodate further bu.dget cuts from non-salaried items.

htruiler harasses residence women There are two men trespassing in female students’ rooms and startling them, in both the villages and the Co-op Residence on Phillip St., Imprint has learned. According to a Don in Village I, who wishes to remain anonymous, a man has been sneaking into women’s rooms during early morning and watching ’ them while they sleep. She added that the problem has been going on for over a month in the North and East Quads in Village I, and West Quad in Village II. Although the intruder has been able to get into their rooms, he has not touched any of them, she said. Meanwhile, another man has been entering girls rooms in the Co-op Residences two or three times a term for the past two years, according to a Co-op spokesman who also wishes to remain anonymous. He added that the man usually sits at their desks and reads a newspaper. On some occasions he has patted the shoulders of sleeping women. “People in the Co-op residences feel pretty secure at night, so they don’t bother to lock their doors,” he said. “As a result he can gain very easy access intotheir rooms.” He also said that although the nocturnal visits have been going on for two years, nobody, including the police, has had a chance’to catch the culprit. On several occasions, groups of students in the Co-op Residence have banded together and kept a watch unsuccessfully. Recently, rumours have been spread proclaiming that the man plaguing the Co-op Residences has been caught. However, Campus Security supervisor Al Romenco said that he-cannot release any information to students concerning the accuracy of these rumours. But according to the Village I Don, security has increased the number of nightly checks around the villages. The Co-op spokesman said that “if security has caught the man we would have heard from them by now.” Leonard Darwen

i Cl,assic \Doster With the onset of the near-perennial Chevron referendum this week, posters advocating positions pro and con the paper flourished all over campus. Imprint knows of at least 21 posters, not including the official referendum announcement. Some posters took ambiguous points of view. One poster asked “Are you proud to-have the Chevron as vour official student J newspaper?” at the top, and exhorted “Vote this thurs(day)” at the bottom. It left space for students to answer for themselves. Other posters were much

Another Chevron poster stressed their sports coverage, saying “We’re unbeatable” above a “vote yes.” Many chevron posters reiterated the theme that the Federation and EngSoc are trying to silence the

Dr. Ross Hall gave the of the opening lecture” OPIRG/Federation Science and the Public symposium Monday. He talked about three science and technology oriented activities as examples of the limitations of technology. The first was agriculture: science and technology being used to boost the .quantity of food produced. This leads to higher yields, but not necessarily improved (or even, possibly, maintained) quality of nourishment . As well, intensive farrr ing and “monoculture” (growing only one crop in a large area) are energyintensive, requiring energy for machinery and chemical fertilizers. While they may be more efficient in the short term, they can cause depletion of minerals in the soi7 and loss of topsoil, being detrimental in the long run. The second was drug technology. Here, drugs are promoted by chemical manufacturers who make them. This promotion is done with little regard for side effects or the differences between the metabolisms of different people. Unfortunately, drug research is diverting re-

research sources from research in alternative types of health care. The same is true for the third topic, cancer research. The prevalent feeling is that cancer is a disease (which, according to Dr. Hall, it is not) and therefore must be cured. Unfortunately, there is little emphasis on prevention, even though most of the cancer causing factors in the

In summation, Hall mentioned that these examples demonstrate a general paralysis of policy makers who are reluctant to change or consider alternatives. This feeling that the pres-

ent course of action is the only one has been transferred to the public, the.majority of whom are unwilling to recognize the limits to knowledge and science. The result is a general lack of feedback to government and industry from the public and a need for the education and participation by the public, the reason for this symposium. Peter Bain

Mao’s iron hand A new democratic revolution may be brewing in china, according to recent reports in the Western press. Mass meetings have been held in Peking where young Chinese workers called for “true democracy, true human rights”, according to Globe and Mail correspondent John Fraser. Criticism of late-leader Chairman Mao has been prevalent in wall poster campaigns ‘this week. Despite Mao’s avowed policy of “criticism and self criticism”, criticism of his work was almost non-existent until recently.

Campus

The demonstrators have shown a remarkable awareness of global political issues. For instance, they are curious about Russian communism as compared to Chinese communism, critically supportive of US president Jimmy Carter’s “human rights” campaign, and aware of such Western traditions as the separation of the executive and the judiciary. Calls for greater political freedom are not new in China. For instance, an essay written more than 20 years ago, Mao addresses demands for a multi-party politicalYystem.

Fraser feels that the demonstrations are spontaneous, although they are to the advantage of vice-premier and political phoenix Teng Hsiao-Ping. The Chinese are asking the people of the West to , support them in their struggle for democracy. The demonstrators are demanding freedom of expression, guaranteed civil liberties and the right to elect their national leaders. They want a “socialist democracy,” not “bourgeois democracy” however.

“Don’t listen to The rumours - listen to lies” and “Better Dead than Red” posters, disappeared from many areas of ‘campus Wednesday evening.

Shorts Announcement

The Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) expects the Ministry of Colleges ‘and Universities to announce the level of funding at Ontario universities “any time now,” according to fieldworker John Shortall. The municipalities and school board funding levels were announced recently, and “usually the ministry estimates aren’t far behind,” said Shortall. Shortall said that a 4.3 per cent increase in funding is expected for the year 1979-80, assuming a five per cent increase for the ministry. He said that colleges usually get “a little more” than the universities. The announcement will be discussed at the national-provincial caucus of the National Union of Students, and-at the next OFS conference (to be held in Waterloo), both in January, 1979.

However, despite the many research programs going on around the world, an adequate phase-change material has yet to be found. Nevertheless, a significant breakthrough, could render all rock storage systems obsolete. Passive solar systems do not require the pumps, fans and equipment associated with active solar systems. Passive solar buildings rely on building orientation, south-facing windows, and the thermal mass of the building structure itself to collect heat.

The University of Waterloo is particularly active in solar energy research in Canada. Studies are being done on collector and storage design, solar-assisted heat pumps, and the computer simulation of solar systems. John W. Chinneck

The Arts ‘Interiors :

- Mimics

Allen creates drama Let this serve as awarning to all YOU unsuspecting Woody Allen fans just waiting td run out and see his new movie ‘Interiors’; Woody Allen does not appear in’the film at all! H_edid write and direct it, but if you expect to see another hilarious Woody Allen comedy, you’ll be sorely shocked, as I was, and as was half the audience who turned up to see the first showing on Friday night. But wait! ! Don’t let me turn you away from seeing the film quite that easily! If you go to see this film knowing full well what to expect of it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it thoroughly. It is a very mature and stinsitive film dealing with the intense relatiohships and loves between a hus-

band, his wife, his ‘other. woman’ their daughters and their husbands. Right from the beginning, a feeling of drama invades the audience as we watch’ the father, portrayed by Marshall, talkiqg to his daughters, Diane Keaton ad Mary Beth Hurt. ___ There is no music tra& and the silence of the scene can be felt in the audience. Geraldine Page plays the estranged wife, eccentric at times, suicidal at others because of her feelings of guilt and anguish when her husband announces (at the breakfast table) that he would like a trial separation. She constantly believes eat he will return to her, but he falls in love with another woman, Maureen

Stapleton, and decides to halize a divorce. The rest of the film deals mainly with the tribulations and subsequent adjustments that @e characters go through in relation to themselves and each other, and especially the father’s new wife, which makes for compelling drama. The third daughter, Flyn, is portrayed by Kristin Griffifth, but is seen little as she is an actress and not living near her parent:. She is seen at first as the sister who has got it made, got her life all sorted out, and the other two seem to be just drifting around looking for themselves, but as the film progiesses, it becomes apparent that Flyn does indeed have personal problems of her own.

a winner

The Canadian film industry has made a great step up reaching the towards standards of American films with the suspense thriller “3ilent Partner,” filmed in Toronto. Elliot Gould stars as, a mild-mannered cashier, Myles Cullen. When he finds out that his teller is going to be robbed, he sees that this could be used to his advantage. His opponent in this match of master criminals is Christopher Plummer, the actual crook. There develops a ruthless battle be-

tween the two, to get the money. Pltimmer tries evejrihing from extreme brutality to letting his sexy accomplice, played by Celine Lomez, try to lure the secret out of Myles. The goriest scene of the film develops when Plummer finds out that Lomez has joined forces with Myles. The tension mounts as the audience awaits the out-, come of the film, and they are hertainly not disappointed.

exude a quiet presence; Miami Steve Van Zandt still looked like a confused kid from the swamps of Jersey, and the moment when all four. of them took to the four-foot half-stage to simultaneously kick-step was almost magical. You may notice I’m losing all pretense of objectivity, not to mention running out of superlative adjectives. Let me put it succinctly: most of the 10,000 people in the Gardens saw one of the best concerts (if not the best) that they would ever see. Hell, we deify these people, put them up on pedestals, and when they turn otit to be as honest and human as the kid next door, it’s just great. Example in point: near the end of She’s The One, some poor stoned sap jumped up on stage.

Springsteen put an arm around his shoulders, leaped with him back into the audience - into the goddamn audience! 7 did a solo surrounded by bouncing fans and scrambled back into position. He packs about a year of life into one concert, and it’s a far cry from the pious psychobabble of Dan Hill or the pretentiousness of Meatloaf. You want to crusade for world hunger and human rights, when there are zillions of people alive who have never seen Springsteen?! The second set closed with Rosalita, one of the all-time songs of joyous hope, and then he came back to do Born Ti, Run and again to reaffirm our faith in rock ‘n’ roll with the famous Detroit Medley. But the crowd wouldn’t let him go, and he did a third encore with the houselights on and the whole place on its feet, complete

This review would not be complete without mention of Susannah York, who plays another employee of the bank. she is an observer of most of the happenings, but doesn’t realize what is going on. Both Christopher Plummer and Elliot Gould play their parts excellently. However it is not only the acting, but the story as well, that make “Silent Partner” the best Canadian film that I have seen. It can therefore. be highly recommended. Dennis Jackson

Concert

The following review of the Bruce Springsteen concert in Toronto, written by Prabhakar Ragde for last week’s Imprint, was delayed for space reasons. Why do we do it? I asked myself for the hundredth time, as I tried to fit my knees into a space just one inch too small, courtesy of the cramped seating high in the greys at Maple Leaf Gardens. Why are we such fanatics about these musicians, these songwriters and performers whose creations shape our minds and lives? Why was I sent into a deep depression when the Concert Bowl sold out just as I was within spitting distance of the ticket counter (and all I could think was, “If only Bruce knew about this.. .“)? Why, when I finally did get seats, did I get lost in Toronto on a bitterly cold night, managing to rush to G&on and Yonge, gulp a McDonald’s assembly-line product (someday, somewhere I’ll be able to attend a concert without smelling like a fast-food hamburger) and take my place way up here to ruin my eyes staring through binoculars and feeling the acrid tickle of smoke in my nostrils? It has been said, in varied and diverse places, that Bruce Springsteen is probably the most competent live performer in music. The last time he hit Toronto, it was at the nadir of the legallyimposed obscurity that followed his rapid rise to fame, and he was doing it to stay alive. This time, he had-to not only reestablish ihe following to correspon:! to his critical acclaim bui overcome the mixed public reaction to his latest album. He opened with an Elvis Presley rocker, followed in quick succession by two numbers from Darkness On The Edge Of I Town. But the audience was hesitant and unsure; the sound seemed cluttered and fuzzy, and the applause was

full but reserved. Thenthe band swung into Spirit In The Night, from the very first album,. Then the band swung into Spirit In The Night, from the very first album, Springs teen leaped to the floor and bump-hustled twenty-five rows down to stand on a folding chair in the middle of the floor to sing the allimportant middle section, .-and- they were his. Most concerts are a tossuG between technical brilliance backed wi+ placid appreciation, or manic frenzy generating really lousy music. The reason Springsteen is such a good performer is that his show combines the best elements of the two extremes. As a result, he is one of the few whose live renditions are better than his studio recordings, perhaps because vinyl can’t capture the incredible energy of the man both on uptempo numbers and on slower ones. Nbt only are his own songs done well, (some of the strongest being unreleased songs like Independence Day and Point-Blank) but he has the utter gall to do other performers’ material better his version of Because The Night (the original) probably blew Patti Smith off the stage she was performing on several hundred miles away, and he stripped down to his roots on a medley of Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels biggies, songs like C.C. Ryder, Devil With The Blue Dress, and Good Golly Miss Molly. His backing musicians cannot hope to achieve the same level of intensity, but they do provide excellent instrumentation. The E Street Band, tighter than they have ever been, could at last be seen; organist Federici, pianist Bittan and drummer Max Weinberg

were on raised platforms. Their ---_--sound - -~~~- maeicallv cleared to the clean hardyness of Darkness, and this attitude seemed to be refleeted in the song selection: the older material was largely abandoned, along with the long theatrical monologues which used to punctuate them. The crowd rapport thus achieved was unbelievable because of its spontaneity; it was the interactions between Springsteen and the slimmed-down but still huge Clarence Clemmons (surely the meanest saxophonist in rock) that provided the vitality of the performance, and they seemed to be having such a damn good time all the way through. Even the terminally-shy Gary Tallent seemed to

with mock seiz_ure, resurrection, and melodramatic ending. As we rode down to the street stunned by nearly three hours of solid music, a fellow who also writes for this rag said to me, “I’m glad you’re doing this review - I couldn’t put that into words.” But I wasn’t listening to him, for I thought I had the answer to my questions. See, these guys bust their backs to give us what they’re good at, and we give them otir love and support in return. It’s not a cynical exchange, but a genuine affirmation of our common humanity, and if it hurts when people cut up SpringSteen just to annoy me, it’s not a weakness but a strength. And if you think that’s just sentimental bullshit, well, you obviously weren’t in Toronto that night, and little piece of the universe is miss&gfrom your lives.

Move It tin Over Thorogood and the Destroyers

Not since the mid-1960’s group. the Yardbirds has there been a gang of musicians who could play the spectrum of music ranging from high-energy rock ‘n’ roll to mean low-down , J blues. Now, more than ten years later, George Thorogood and the Destroyers have arisen to fill this musical and somewhat cultural void. Their second album, Move It On Over, ranks as one of the most powerful, rock albums (forget that progressive‘stuff for now) to be released since the demise of bands like the Yardbirds and the Spencer Davis Group. (I should add here that I am using the term “rock” rather loosely). This album borders on the fine line dividing rock music from the blues (if such a line exists). Move It On Over has it all. Fast blues, slow blues, acoustic blues, old and new blues. Furthermore, it treads on the threshold of raucous country and western boogie music in one instance. George Thorogood, the lead singer, has a voice that sounds as if it has been refined through several quarts of bootleg whiskey, two dozen cigarettes, a case of strep throat and singing lessons from Tom Waits. However, don’t let this description fool you. Just try to imagine Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor or Howlin’

Because of this disease Covenant is an outcast and has given up all hope of ever leading a normal life. Suddenly he is drawn into a strange alternate world by an eyil being, Lord Foul, and is given a message to take to the Lords of the )o Land.

This is lean, hard, hungry, driving rock ‘n roll, with both a sense of humour and of humanity, as proved by the one “non-activist” cut on this album, TR’s homage to his dream car.

-Acadia beats UW in . -Naismith .twwnament _--So much for fairy tales and wishes whispered on starshowered evenings; the prince whose kiss awakened Snow White drooled syhpilitically and the Naismith moved to Wolfeville anyway.

Too

late

His t&am losing to Acadia, Winnipeg’s Belaineh Deguefe goes up for a defensive rebound only to find another basket for the Axemen. Frustration was the order of the day for the Wesmen in their semi-final against Acadia. Poor calls by both referees caused the expulsion of team leaders Dan Kinaschuk and Ken Opalko with over 10 minutes left in the game. Deguefe, a 6’9”’ rookie from the Winnipeg high school system, was one of the most impressive players at the tournament.

If it ever happens again they’ll say there, history repeats itself. That’s tit least one way of describing last weekend’sNaismith final between Acadia and Waterloo. Acadia’s Axemen came from behind to steal a 75-74 victory on the strength of a 20 foot jump shot by the tournament’s MVP, Mike Hazard, wit’li 13 seconds remaining. But that was not the story of this basketball game. The story dealt with an Acadia zone defence which virtually shut out the,Warrior attack far the first half; the story dealt with a 53-32 ball game which was over at half time. Basketball courts, not to mention baseball diamonds with et. al., are littered clichks about final outs and buzzers. In order to preserve the mythical value of such truisms the Warriors presented their guests from Nova Scotia with a rbde reminder of who, is the top defensive team in the country. * In the first 15 minutes of the second half Waterloo

turned a 21 point deficit into a five point advantage; they did it with an awesome defensive display and they did it by finally picking apart a zone defense. Defensively, the Warriors allowed Acadia only 10 points in the first 17 minutes of the second half while themselves scoring 36. Offensively they were able to find the range from outside which helped open up the zone for penetration. Most importantly they were able to run their fast break effectively for the first time this year. It is difficult to pick any one Warrior out for his play. Seymour Hadwen and Pat Brill-Edwards were deservedly named to the tournam.ent all-star team (along with Acgdia’s Mike Hazard and Tom Lydns and Western’s Bruce Meikle) but the Warrior effort was truly a team one with 9 of the 12 players contributing a significant role. In other action over the weekend Western established’itself as a Strong contender in the QUAA-West. They were beaten handily

ckey Warriors win two The UW Warrior Hockey team continued its play this past week as they had games with MacMaster, Brock and Cornell University. The Warriors managed two wins and a loss. In a league game against MacMaster, the Warriors were defeated 4-l. The Mat team came up with a strong effort and just managed to Waterloo. The score was O-O mid-way through the second period’ when Mat scored three goals in 63 seconds. The Warriors never really recovered. The Warriors also met Brock University in another league game. This time the Warriors came away with a 7-4 viqtory. The game was a close one due to the spperb goaltender for Brock, who faced 60 shots from the Warrior squad. The Warriors then travel- led to Cornell University on the weekend, and managed to defeat Cornell 5-4. The Warrior team came up with a superb effort and are to be corigratulated. Despite some dubious officiating by the American refs, the Warriors perserved and scored the winning goal while shorthanded and with only minutes remaining.
