Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
_ TUB IFTHBFtlDGE HERALD Frdlay, August 14, 1570 Lclhbridge Native Sons are iit home this weekend in the Alberta Lacrosse League and the two games are the most important ones the locals have played this year. Saturday evening at eight and Sunday afternoon at two the locals will play host to Ed- monton Sherbrcokc Shamrocks and up for grabs is the fourth and last playoff berth in the five team league. Native Sons, in their first season in the league, have gain- ed five points on one ma and three ties. The Shamrocks are in the same predicament with an identical record. The survivor of the weekend set will open the playoffs against Edmonton Gleno r a Blues next weekend. It has been brought to the at- tention of local officials that if Lethbridge earns the fourth playoff spot they may be allow- ed to host the semi-final with the Blues even though the Blues have the right to home court. It seems that Edmonton is supporting various lacrosse events and would like to have some other location lake the ;emi finals and possibly the finals. There is a catch, how- ever, the fan support lias to warrant it. If the Native Sons defeat the Shamrocks and the crowds are good, the locals stand a good chance of playing more la- crosse at the Arena. Meanwhile, playing coach Dave Smith is in fourth place in the scoring race but has a chance to improve his standing as he has two games left while the leaders have finished the schedule. With two games to go S'niith has 23 goals, tops in the league, and five assists for 28 points, 11 back of Bill Taylor of Calgary. Peter Gamble cf Edmonton Larks is second with 38 points. Both Taylor and Gamble had 20 goals but Taylor had one more assist. Edmonton Larks won the regular league honors edging the Glenora Blues by a single point. Larks had 25 as com- pared to 24 for the Blues. Cal- gary finished third at 17.

Linebacker Mike Blum stopped Hamilton's first play after the kickoff when he Inter- cepted Joe Zuger pass and Jonas took just four more plays before connecting on a it-yard pass to flanker Tom Eland in the end zone.
