Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, APK1L HERALD SPORTS PAGE NINE STAMPEDERS THREE GAMES UP ON HAMILTON TIGERS OUT ON A w A LIMB with LORIMER FEXWICK ANYONE Who is thmVing of organjring a senior hockey team lor next winter had better start negotiating right away or they're going to find themselves leaking awfully siily sitting behind the proverbial eight ball, according to members of the Hamilton Tigers. -Brliom we after last Saturday eight's game of shinny in Calgary. Tee situation in the Ernst, they affirm, is very aggravating as far as getting new players is concerned. Slcst, of the Hamilioaians have been offered flattering contracts from other senior organizations, all of whom it appears are moaning loudly for experienced players. An Childs, tea goalie who has been sensational against every team but Calgary, has been the recipient of the most offers, one of which calls for something like per season, tax free. Art. who operates a sum- mer camp during the warm months, allegedly won't have any of it un- less the contract is of the three- year varietv. The other players who have re- ceived good offers are reluctant to leave Hamilton because most of them are married and have good, steady jobs with a future to them. The situation, if you believe what they sav and there's no reason why you shouldn't, is the same in other eastern centres. Hockey players are not anxious to move to other towns they can be offered a steady job, plus a goodly amount of cash. for every game in which thev perform. So it looks as if the days 01 high playing salaries with no" jobs to boot are gone. Although, of course, there are always senior players who have their sights train- ed on the Jf-HJj. and who are will- ing to play amateur for the money and the glory of it, and who aren't worried abour getting a steady job. that junior hockey is becom- ing more popular every year with the fans across the country, it looks as if the situation among the younger plavers is just about as mercenary as with, the seniors. Many juniors, according to Miller of the Hamilton club, won't talir turkev with other amateur bus- inesses unless they are offered a year-round, job as well as a fair hockey salary. The chief reason for this lament- able change of attitude amongst the hockey players of Canada is suuplv and demand. The demand for hockev plavers exceeds the supplr so it just adds UD that the supply is going to take advantage of the demand. The salaries Toin- mv Gorman is supposedly paying his Montreal Royals a sea- son for top stars) aren't being paid because he is a. big-hearted old monev-bags. Far from it. The salaries are being paid because he can't get a winning team without digging deep into his wallet. And it follows as the night the day, that if you can't pay your players big salaries then, you've got to get them sceacy, secure jobs (where ther can get time off to play hockey) to compensate for the weakness of your bank account. Amateurs are getting awfully greedv, but only because they can afford to be. The shoe to oft tne other foot, A BIT OF EVERYTHING The Henderson Park diamond looks "big town" with its new fence ana its freshly-painted green exterior. Ted "Williams, the greatest hitter in baseball history according to Ted Williams, is living up to his expectations by batting .600 at the moment.

The TVylie- Kuttan duo. present holders of the Baalim Golf Trophy, are just about the coollest men. with sizzling clubs in the city today and it's going to take seme great scores and some playing to beat them.

"shabby Cats" have definitely come to life in Canada's 1946 Allan cap playoff but Its aa awakening that finds them three games down to Calgary's poiverful Stampeders, a margin conceded by many too great to overcome. The chips were down for Tigers, champions of the east, as they entrained today for Saskatoon for the fourth game of the best-of-seven series and which may well be the finale. For despite Hamilton's show of fight, back- checking and playmaking for the first time in the series last night, Stampeders were worth their 4-3 victory which gave them the three-game edge. Room and BoardbyG TIGERS FIGHT HARD Humbled 6-2 in the first came and 6-1 in the second, when ther failed to show much more than their "lucky" unwashed uniforms, Tigers were a, differ- ent club last night as ther fought Stampeders with their own kind of back-cheeking game. But the Calganr weight, finish and defence proved enough to earn them by the margin of a single third period tally. Johnny Conick, knocked in the first period goal for Hamilton and Doug Cairns and Bob Brownridge came back fasc with, two for the west. Bobby Liscombe and Clarence Shillington sank two more eastern goals in the second frame to give Tigers a lead that looked like some- thing until Red Hunter whipped in a setup by Dime Grant late in the second. Hunter fed Archie "Wilder the third period pass that produced the game-winning goal for Stampeders. Hunter, whose three goals were a big factor in Calgary's 6-1 vic- ton- here, was the boy who fed Archie Wilder the third period pass that produced the game-winning goal for the west. Art Childs work in the Tiger net was a big improve- ment over his orevious showings but he didn't have time to recover from one save before "Wilder had whipped the game-winner between his legs. KEVEfcSAL OF FORM Hamilton's Sght, their improved passing, their hard back-cheesing western fans had heard about the Tiger club but never saw up to some eye-brow lifting: among the hockey followers who had predicted a four-straight Allan cup victory for ice smooth, 'heavy western club. Calgary were well-worked for their third straight victory and Hamilton might well hare had the balance of power had they had the services of their ace scorer, Dillon Brady who is ill in hospital with Brady !s not expected Jo be out of hospital until Monday night and chough he will go tc Saskatoon he is not expected to be back on the Hamilton lineup for the re- mainder of the series. Should Hamilton's reversal of form win them Wedneriay night's game in Saskatoon, the clubs will go on to Edmonton for a fifth game Saturday and then back here for two more if necessary.

TORONTO, April Irish are just one game from their second suc- cessive Canadian junior hockey championship, and the odds are 2-1 that they'll finish this freat Memorial Cup final in the sixth game tomorrow night. The Michael's Col- lege of Toronto took a, stranglehold on the title last night, whipping Winnipeg Monarchs 7-4 in a battle that produced just about everything-, including a. near free-for-all and. a five-goal scoring- display by husky Tod Sloan. THREE WINS TO TWO It was the third victory for the Saints against two for the western champions in the best-of-seven series that started a week ago Saturday. Beyond a short spell in the second period when they took advantage Hedlunds Trounce 53-31 EDMONTON, April Van- couver Hedlunds British Columbia senior women's 'basketball cham- pions. tied the best-of-three west- ern Canadian playdowns Mondav night by trouncing Edmonton Mortons by a score of 33-31 In the second game. Mortons took the first game 33-27. Play was close in the first quar- ter, with the score standing as 13 for Hedlunds to 11 for Mortons at ouarter time, but from then on Hedlunds' scoring and defensive power asserted itself, and the Van- couver quintet ran up a 17-point lead at half-time. Mortons being able is add only another point in the second quarter. The score stood at 51-22 in favor of Hedlunds by the three-quarter mark, and they had coasted to their 53-31 victorv fay the time the final whistle blew. LINEUP OF TEAMS Vancouver: Bell Watson CD.

They were weak- ened through absence of Clint Al- bright, spectacles-wearing forward suffered a. leg gash in a morn- ing practice yesterday. The fast- breaking Albright is expected back for Wednesday's tilt, however. GIVEN MAJOR PENALTY The flare-up started shortly after Tom Rockej-v western rearguard, was given a major penalty for drawing blood in. cross-checking Eddie Sandford. Bill Tindall of Monarchs took ex- ecution to Ed Harrison bumping Gioson as Harrison went in on goal, and he crowded the collegian in a corner. Gibson tore out oi his net, grabbed Costello and the two fell to the ice. Plavers of both teams rushed to the scene. There was some shoving and bumping while officials attempted to separate the opponents. It ended with Tindall, Costello and Eddie Harrison of the Saints taking majors and Sloan net- ting the puck on the major pen- alty against Gibson. The game developed into the most exciting of the series after St. Mikes took a 4-1 lead in the first period and appeared far superior. It was a gams worthy of a Memorial cup series from, the time Monarchs came back with then- two quick goals in the second. George Robertson, with two goals, led the Western Canada champions in point-getting. NOX OVER-CONFIDENT The one-sided score brought smiles in the Toronto dressing room but not over-confidence. "After we took them 7-3 in the third game they came back to wal- lop Captain Ted McLean, said. "We'd better watch ourselves Wed- nesday, or well be flat on our seats again." "Take two he then shout- ed at Tod Sloan who jallied five in regular play and one penalty shot. "You deserve them." "And while you're at it, you'd better put that No. 7 sweater away for a young Sloan to The ready wit and psuedo-humor did not bring Coach Joe Primeau even one smile. All he had to say was: "It's pretty funny pretty funny." "It's still a best-of-three series and they're still a tough he added a few minutes later as he took goalie Pat Boehmer's left glove away. The glove's thumb was almost bitten through. "With Albright back in the Walter Monson said later, "well stand a better chance. It left a big Edmonton. j LINEUP OF 1EAMS f.
