Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, APRIL HERALD SPORTS PAGE EIGHT KNOCKOUTS IN ALBERTA RING FINALS AT CARDSTON OUT ON A w x LIMB with LOBXMER FEXIVICK CALGARY. After sitting through Saturday night's much bau Allan Cup game be- tween the SUuupedeis and the Hamilton Tigers we hare come to the conclusion that if ihe first line of Montreal Royals, a team which Hamilton beat in three straight janies, is worth then the first line of the Stamps would be joins cheap for Which is awfully silly, of course alter seeing them play. As far as hcckey goes, Saturday's game was a distinct and titter dis- appointment, to pat is as politely as possible. As far as excitement goes, there is no doubt that the very talkative Calgary rooters were Hamilton Tigers Badly Disrupted Cheered By Second Win (By Herb Jones, Canadian Press Staff Writer) CALGARY, April "raggedy-Anne" Hamilton Tigers were definitely hockey's hardjluck boys today as .they faced the prospect of meeting the powerful Calgary Stampeders for thel third time in the Allan cup series, two games down and with a disrupted lineup and the old fight organization sadiy lacking. Dillon Brady, star left winger who won the O.H.A. scor- ing championship and helped the once-proud eastern ice champs knock off the vaunted-Montreal Royals three straight, was still in hospital recovering from the 'flu. third-period marker in which he Doubtful Stactar matched wits aloua and won. attack on numerous occasions, bus of course they were all very very prejudiced which is only very very natural when you consider how many years it has taken Calgary to develop a team which .coaid win its own league, much less the Allan Cup. Hamilton, minus the services of their high scoring ace. Dillon Brady, showed that they could beat Cal- gary if only "those awful defence- men" wouldn't keep getting in their way. They had plenty of speed behind their own. blueline, and occasionally they showed real pass- ing ability but unfortunately they never seemed to be abie to get go- ing. The much-talked-about goalie. Art Chiles, mast have been having an off nigh; because fee didn't iniDress anvone within our earshot, except twice when he outguessed Red Hunter and Doug Cairns on breakaways. Johnny Conick and Doug Runions, two forwards, dem- onstrated that they have a few more years of good "hockey left in their svstems. The others have had better days. Calgary, minus the services of nobody, played a good rushing game, although we got the impres- sion a couole of times that some of their stars weren't awfully intelli- gent. Their- style of play pretty well consisted of batting the puck. over Hamilton's blueline and then rushing like a pack of bloodhounds after it. They showed more speed than the they cer- tainly had no more that is probably what won the game for them, although their de- fence was most effective and ter- rifying at times. Their shooting wasn't particularly accurate, nor their passes, but they still won by a convincing 6-1 they must have had something. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE GAME The bruising defence play of Art Michaluk and Pete Slobodlan, both of whom looked and acted like a couple of retired wrestlers with, a grudge the smart way Red Hunter drew Childs out of the net to score his first goal the light shining on the bald pates of five of the Hamilton players the bril- liant defence work of a Calgary spectator during the first period (what cheers he received from, the Art Childs' stylish way of falling to the ice, and his looks of bewilderment when he turned to see the puck resting in the net Slobodian charging down the ice without the puck, when, all the time ise thought- he had it... the hush that-fell over the Arena when Ham- ilton tied the score at l-i in the second period, broken by the roars of three or four courageous Tiger supporters the rough, piay dur- ing the third period, brought to a head by a. quite convincing fight between Swac Mason and Bunny Came the sudden bursts of speed bv Tonv Desmarais (one of the stars, by the way) the strange feeling that we were watch- ing an ordinary league game in- stead of an Allan Cup final SECOND THOUGHTS... After chatting with most of the Hamilton players after the game we are almost in the mood to go out on a limb and predict that anything still can happen In this series, that it is even possible for Hamilton to win the Allan Cap, and in 1946 too. The Hamiltonians are bitterly disappointed with both iheir games with Calgary and can't what is wrong with them. Art Childs, for one, says his He icas due for discharge but was are predicting will end with, the fourth, game in Saskatoon Wednes- day. Thoroughly beaten and outclassed 6-2 m ihe first game at Regina last Thursday, Tigers shoved more fight in the second game of the best of seven series ior Canada's senior amateur hockey championship here Saturday But they gave "way to the heavier, hard-checking Cal- against Art Childs. whose sensa- tional goal-tending of the eastern series western fans are stili waiting to see.

Bo'oby laureas ryne back with a score-ueing marker earlv in the second on a relay from Clarence Sbillington and it looked for a bit. like Tigers had found the Calgary secret.

Lineup of Teams Hamilton: Childs; Laurent, Sher- ry; Shillington; Conick, Miocino- vich. Subs: Robertson, Liscombe, Mason, Runions. Dinning. sealed the In the Tiger camp wasn't much above the zero point. Even Coach George Redding admitted the outlook was black unless Tigers could find themselves quicklv and reverse the sad downhill trend. He said despite Tigers' troubles he didn't want to take anvthing away from Stampeders "one of tthe finest clubs I've seen.'' Redding left the impression that even a. Hamilton club with the drive and the organ- ization of that which, won the eastern title might have found the j Calgary: Dertell; Slobodian WU- westerners' rugged .sty's of close- der; Caims; Dame, Fisher, 'subs: Hunter, Brownricge, Grant, Des- checking "they break us up before beat. we get hard to Stamps Confident In the Stampeder camp there was an air of confidence, tempered bv Coach Jack Arbour, he of the tight lip and critical hockey eve. And among the Tigers' supporters there were those who pointed to the 1941 Allan Cup series when Regina Rangers came back from two straight defeats and a tie to win the cup in a seven-game tussle with Sydney Millionaires. On Saturday night's game Calgary speedster Red Hunter was the best, scoring three goals including a marais, Michaluk. Sawchuk.

Mio- cinvich, who hurt his kneecan when it collided with Art Michaluk, claims they can't seem to get their second wind. Most of them sav that if Calgary wins the Allan Cup that they will be the worst team ever to do so, which isn't saying much for Hamilton, or for the Montreal Royals for that matter. They, of course, miss the services of Dillon Brady, who is out with the flue, very much. He has been their! high scorer all season. Anyway, and taking Into consid- eration their three wins against the Royals, there is very little doubt that Hamilton couldn't be than they have been so far in the series. So, if Art Childs plays the way he is rumored able to play, if Conick and Shillington and a few of the others regain their scoring eyes, then Hamilton mav yet win the series. And if BRAVEST REMARK OF THE SERIES SO FAR "Our juniors could beat guys." you This jremark was actually made by a Lethbridge citizen of our acquaintance to a loyal Calgary fan, who proved to be pretty sensitive about such "uncalled for" remarks.

Western Canada's Win- nipeg Monarchs made up in sheer fighE whas they lacked ia coiish as they tied the best-of-seven Ifem- onal cup series at two games each in edging the great Irish machine 4-3 Saturday night. Monarchs still were underdogs for the Sfch. game tonight. The western outlook was dark before Saturday's battle.

The Collegians, too, fumbled a few scoring opportunities but had nowhere near the same chances in the face of the engulfing western wave. The battle, to a background of a roaring crowd of was featur- ed by the plav making of that tire- less trio, Monarchs' Harrv Taylor, Don McRae and George Sobertson. ifonarchs scored first in the see- saw affair, in which the teams were tied l-l at the end of the Srst pe- riod. 2-2 at the start of the third.

Three minutes before the end of the bitterly-fought duel. Norm Baker, regarded as not only all- Canadian but all-American calibre, sank two quick baskets to seal up the decision.
