Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 21, 1974-THE UETHBRIDGE Pat Sullivan And all of a sudden it is over, so close, and yet so far away. This time last week Lethbridge athletes were spread out to the east looking for Canadian and Western Canadian titles. As is so often the case, we didn't come home empty handed. Judokas Tom Greenway and Joe Meli were adorned with gold medals when they arrived home from Toronto while Lethbridge YMCA Judo Club teammate Guy Pomohac settled for a bronze. Meli and Greenway were named to the Canadian National Judo team. Meli travels to Brazil next month while Greenway must wait until November and his trip to Germany. All three had earned the right to compete in the Toronto competition by virtue of victories in the Junior Olympics in Edmonton. While the Judokas were performing their feats of excellence a band of Norcrest Little League All Stars came ever so close to advancing to the Little League World Series in Williamsport. The Cinderella club from Lethbridge was within one victory of the Canadian crown. They lost in an extra inning on national TV Saturday and it took most of the fight out of them. When you're second best they say you try harder. Norcrest weren't second best, they won the A section of the competition. Esquimau, B.C. were second and they fought back. No, coach Jim Szucs said it best when he told Sunday's welcoming committee "we'll be back there again." On the other hand, Lethbridge Sansei couldn't get untracked in Minnedosa, Man. Sansei advanced to the Western Canada Bantam baseball final in this Manitoba centre. Two straight setbacks, which I'm sure came as a surprise to local supporters, sending Sansei packing. All I can say is the competition must have been the best Sansei saw all season as they had a good, strong club. But these things happen. Lethbridge has one more crack at a national title this weekend in Victoria where the Miners' Library will seek the Senior men's fastball crown. Miners won the Alberta title a while back and are now set to do battle for the Canadian crown. Miners leave Thursday for the coast and according to coach Tom McLean, "all the guys are gung ho for this one." So you see, national titles in judo, one game away from the Little League World Series, a bantam team in the western championships and a fastball title still up for grabs for locals. Anyway you look at it, close isn't so bad. And believe it or not, we finally got some statistics from the Alberta Major Baseball League, the final standings. Red Deer won the northern division while in the south, Calgary Giants edged the Jimmies by a single game. The Giants were 20-11 while the Jimmies logged an 18-11 year. The Jim's had a couple of games left with the Lethbridge Lakers, who had a 12-17 season, that may have moved them into a tie for top spot. That's all by the board now.

Calgary Burns to meet Miners Lethbridge Miners will use Calgary Burns' fastball team as a tune-up tonight for their up-coming trip to Vic- toria for the Canadian fastball finals. The game is slated for Dave Elton Park at Besides their battle with Burns the game will serve as an awards night for the locals. Carling O'Keefe Breweries will present the local club with team jackets and travelling bags for their Victoria trip. The Miners will also receive the Alberta trophy which they won earlier this month and the three members of the local club who made the Alberta All Star team will also be presented with trophies. Joining the Miners tonight, and also for their games at the Canadian championships, will be well known Jim (Whitey) Haley of Calgary and Cal Lange of Edmonton. The Miners will leave by air for Victoria at p.m. and plan to return home Sept. 2. The Canadian championships, featuring 12 Senior A teams from across the country, will be played in a two division fashion with the top two teams in each division meeting in a playoff for the title. The Miners first game in the week-long tourney is slated for 7 p.m. Sunday. Upon returning home the locals will then enter into their own league playoffs. NHL violence the cause LONDON, Ont. (CP) The Free Press says a provincial inquiry into violence in amateur hockey has concluded that the National Hockey League's outlook on violence is the No. 1 cause of its appearance at the amateur level. The newspaper says the one- man inquiry of Toronto lawyer William McMurtry blamed the NHL for "its emphasis on winning and use of violence as a tactical instrument to achieve that goal." The investigation was ordered by the Ontario ministry of community and social services following a provincial junior B playoff game last April 16 between Bramalea Blues and Hamilton Red Wings. Five players and the Bra- malea trainer were injured in the fight-filled contest At one time 14 policemen were at the North York Arena in Metropolitan Toronto to prevent further fighting among players, team officials and spectators. McMurtry, an associate of Alan Eagleson, executive director of NHL Players' Association, was named to conduct the investigation by Provincial minister Rene Brunelle. 'The Free Press says the two major recommendations the 14.000-word report call for the establishment of an Ontario hockey council and ask for the provincial government to in- crease its financial support to amateur hockey.
