Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, April 3 kKJUT THAT JOB X FOUND TOS'IM? 'EMVe IT THAT MUCH TO FLO SET -AN' STOP PICKIN'QN. THE Top clubs surprised Night of the underdogs Bv THE CANADIAN PRESS The underdogs jumped up and growled Friday night, with all three vrisners notching first vic- tories in their National Basket- ball Association playoff series. At Chicago the Bulls led most of the way to defeat champion Los Angeles Lakers 96-86 to cut the Lakers' lead to 2-1 in their best-of-seven Western Confer- ence semi-final. Atlanta Hawks, down two games to Boston, stormed on the Celtics' home court to take a 118-105 victory and narrow that Eastern series tc 2-1. And at Baltimore the Bullets beat New York 97-89 to stave off elimination, making the Eastern series 3-1 for the Knicks. The Bulls led most of the way at Chicago behind the 54-point shooting of Chet Walker and Bob Love. At one point they were up 15. Walker, who had averaged only 11.5 points in the two games at Los Angeles, poured in 30 points and Love contrib- uted 24. The Bulls were able to check the Lakers' hot backcourt pair, Jerry West and Gail Goodrich, especially in the second half. In Boston, Lou Hudson and Pete Maravich combined for 21 points in the fourth quarter for Atlanta and the Hawks shook off repeated comeback attempts by the Celtics. The Celtics, hampered by nu- merous turnovers and poor shooting, were led by JoJo Duke Helgerson will be guest The Milk River Elks Sports- man's Dinner, set for next Sat- urday evening, announced to- day that Duke Helgerson will be a head table guest when din- ner is served. Helgerson joins Floyd Is7atrass, Phil Tollestrup and master of ceremonies Pat Sul- livan at the head table. Helgerson is currently the president of the Chinook Rodeo Circuit of which he was calf roping champion some years back. Duke also captured a roping championship in the Southern Alberta Riding and Roping Club. While competing on a part- time basis Helgerson has found time to win 22 belt buckles in rodeo competition throughout the south. He is consistently in the top five in the Southern Al- berta Riding and Roping Club and the Chinook Cmrcit competi- tions. Helgerson played hockey a number of years but now de- votes most of his free time to running the Chinook Circuit and coaching minor hockey in Ray- mond. One of the highlights of the annual dinner is the selection of the athlete and sportsman of the year. Tickets for the dinner, set at can be obtained from any member of the Milk River Elks Club or at Doug's in Leth- bridge as well as the Leth- bridge Elks Club.

Family comes first, tough decision to make Will Ingarfield stay in coaching By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Spurts Editor "Don't ask me who's going to win the Stanley joked Earl Jngarfteld Friday afternoon. "I thought Boston Bruins would sideline New York Rangers in five games, six at the most." Ingarfield, one half of Leth- bridge's contribution to coach- ing in the National Hockey League, returned home Thurs- day and of utmost importance in his immediate plans is spending time with his fam- ily. Ingarfield took over as coach of the first-year New York Islanders with eight weeks left in the NHL sea- son. Doing so, he joined Vic Stasiuk in the NHL fraterni- ty. Stasiuk is the coach of Vancouver Canucks. If you add to this combin- ation Aut Erickson, assistant to Ingarfield at New York, you have plenty to talk about when it comes to our contri- bution to NHL In his brief tenure as coach of the Islanders the fledgling club enjoyed its most suc- cess. After replacing Phil Goyette at the helm of the club, Ingarfield and h i s charges saw attendance in- crease by some per game, they even enjoyed a brief three game winning streak and it was generally accepted from head office to equipment manager, In- garfield would be coach for the 1973-74 season. He would be quick to lead you to believe his success over two months was due mainly to "a change being as good as a rest." "When I took over from Phil, it was a change for the team. Who's to say any num- ber of guys couldn't do the same Ingarfield is not being mod- est. He feels that two months on the job isn't enough. But does he want eight or nine months on the job? He isn't saying yet but he isn't say- ing no. The owners of the club want him back, they have made that more than clear. The players indicated they want him to return. But as he points out, two months into the new season and the own- ers and players could want him as far west as he could go. "I have to think about he stated when asked if he would be coach next year. For Ingarfield, the family comes first. They followed him from New York Rang- ers, after almost 10 years there, to Pittsburgh Penguins and then to Oakland with the Golden Seals. I have my family to con- sider, he will tell you. He's not sure he wants to pack them up and move them east again. It's a tough decision. One he's not going to make without a great deal of think- ing It's not a matter of money, Ingarfield made that clear. According to him, the Island- ers have made him a very good offer. "It's a very good he says, "it has noth- ing what so ever to do with money." Will he stay with the Is- landers organization even if he decides not to coach? Without a doubt. Before taking the coaches job, Ingarfield was chief west- ern scout for the team. He can return to that job or pos- sibly a different one, at a very good salary, that would leave him home in Lethbridge a majority of the time. The Islanders have a very bright future says Ingarfield. They will draft first in the June amateur draft and as well, have a few more cracks at good players with other early round choices picked up through trades. Also, the Islanders don't expect to lose any players to the World Hockey Associa- tion. One or two might go, feels Ingarfield, but not any that will hurt the club. Most of the Islanders are on two and three-year con- tracts so will be around for a while yet any way. Another reason Ingarfield feels the club remain pretty well in- tact despite WHA offers is that the Islanders are paying good salaries. And as yet, there is no pension plan or a players' association in the WHA. Ingarfield wouldn't who the Islanders will pick first. Talk has it that they will go after John Davidson, the brilliant young netmind- with the Calgary Centennials. While he wouldn't narrow it down to any specific er, Ingarfield did mention Lanny McDonald and Tom Lysiak of Medicine Hat and Dennis Potvin of Ottawa. "We're close on who we want in the first was all he would say. The Islanders are a build- ing club. They had what can only be described as a suc- cessful first year. They play- ed to better than peo- ple in the last home game stretch. It doesn't seem to matter if he is back as coach, scout or another catgory, the Is- landers' future and Ingarfield appear to be joined together in a mutual admiration society. But who do you like in the Stanley Cup, Inky? "I can't see anyone beat- ing Montreal, but if there is any team that can do it, it's the he says with a laugh. putter colder than dead steel Green causes Brewer's adrenalin to flow AUGUSTA, Ga. CAP) When Gay Brewer sees color of U.S. currency and also the color of the Masters' acknowledges all sorts of chemical reactions stir up in his sinewy, 175-pound frame. "The adrenalin starts flow- the 41-year-old veteran with the white-flecked hair and snub Babe Ruth face says. "I get nervous and excited. I con- centrate more. My swing im- proves. I hit with greater ease. "I just want to go out and get 'em." Brewer was the man most players feared as the 37th Mas- ters golf tournament went into the last-half showdown today with a four-way tie at the head of the elite pack and defending- champion Jack Nicklaus' putter colder than a slab of dead steel. "It's been a long time since Tve had a stretch as bad as Nicklaus said, looking back on a collapse that saw him lose five strokes in the space of four holes. "It shatters a man." The golden-haired Goliath stumbled and fumbled to a five- over-par 77 that left him five shots back of Brewer and a trio Elks capture crown, host Easter tourney of other tour regulars tied at Aaron, Bob Dick- son and J. C. Snead. But the big move was made by Brewer, who stormed back from an opening 75 with a brilliant six-under-par 66 that allowed him to pick up 11 shots on the heavily favored Nick- laus, bidding for his fifth Mas- ters crown. The top Canadian was ama- teur Gary Cowan of Kitchener, Ont. who carded a 78 after shooting a 74 Thursday but his 152 total was one off the cut. George Knudson of Toronto fired a 77 Friday for a two- round total of 156. Brewer's surge was all the more remarkable when one con- siders that this time a year ago the 1967 winner was lying flat on his back in an Augusta hos- pital with tubes in his nose and needles in his arms, fighting for his life. Stricken with a gastric ulcer on the eve of the 1972 tourna- ment, Brewer lay near death. Eight transfusions helped re- store him to his feet again. He got well, gained 30 pounds and began playing the best golf of his career. Going into today's third round, only five other players besides the four leaders were under Augusta's par and five were even. Puerto Rico's Chi Chi Rodriguez, chipping in for birdies on the final two holes and using only 22 putts, was a shot out of the lead with 142, followed by former cham- pion Bob Goalby, 73-70; Grier Jones, 71-72; Britain's Peter Oosterhuis, 73-70, and Masashi "Jumbo" Ozaki, the long-hitting former baseball player from Tokyo, 69-74. all tied at 143. The even-par-144 group in- cluded tour stalwarts Gardner Dickinson, 74-70; Jim Jamieson, Mason Rudolph, 72-72: young John Miller, 75-69, and New Zealand's left-handed Bob Charles. 74-70. Arnold Palmer, the four-time winner who has a love affair going with the Masters, and Lee Trevino, a spurned suitor who nevertheless leads the year's money-winning parade with more than were hang- ing on at 149. The 43-year-old Palmer es- caped elimination by firing a par 72 while Trevino, still con- tending the Augusta course is not patterned for bis game, shot a lacklustre 75. Lethbridge Midget Elks com- pleted an unbeaten season in the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey in Strathmore and the two clubs battled to a 7-7 deadlock. Five unanswered third- by winning the league crown. Elks bounced Strath m ore Colts 9-4 in the second game of a two game, total goal final Friday in a robust encounter that one fan suffered a bad cut from a players' stick.
