Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THS IETHBR1DGE HERALD Frdltiy, August 14, 1970 Argonauts Easily Defeat Hamilton Ti-Cals Lcthbridge Native Sons are] home this weekend in the Alberta Lacrosse League and the two games arc the most important ones Die locals have played this year. Saturday evening at eight and Sunday afternoon at two the locals will play host to Ed- monton Snerbrcoke 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 win 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 Gieno r a Blues next weekend. It has been brought to the at- tention of local officials that if Lethbridgc 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 semi finals and possibly the finals. There is a catch, how- sver, the fan support lias to warrant it. If the Native Sons defeat Ihe 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 chance to improve his standing as he has two games left while the leaders have finished the schedule. With two games to go b'mith has 23 goals, tops in the league, and five assists far 28 points, 11 back of Bill Taylor of Calgary. Peter Gamble of 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 (he Glenora Blues by a single point. Larks had 25 as com- pared to 24 for the Blues. Cal- gary finished third at 17.
