Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Auguit LETHBRIOGE Lancers press Lethbridge Lancers hit the lacrosse sidelines this weekend as they dropped the Alberta final to Edmonton Blues. First Summer Games end CALGARY (CP) The first Alberta Summer Games became history Sunday night, but not before a team of four young swimmers from St. Albert won a pair of gold medals in two team events. More than athletes, ranging in age from pre-teen to 86 years old, started for home during the weekend as the fourth day of the Games Edmonton Blues beat Lethbridge for title Edmonton Blues clinched their second consecutive Alberta Intermediate Lacrosse championship Sun- day with a 21-17 two-game total-point victory over the Lethbridge Labor Club Lancers. The two teams tied 8-8 Saturday but Edmonton came on to win the final contest 13-9 Sunday and take the cham- pionship. In Saturday's contest eight different Lethbridge players scored while Bill South potted three for Edmonton. The teams were tied 3-3 at the end of the first period but the Lancers had a 6-5 edge at the end of the second only to see Edmonton outscore them 3-2 in the final frame to tie up the game. Sunday saw Dave Jackson, Rich Quon and Dave Sazalski score two apiece for the locals. Neil Cunningham and South added four and three goals respectively for Edmon- ton. Lethbridge led 2-1 at the end of the first stanza Sunday and were tied 6-6 at the end of two. Edmonton put it all together in the third period however and outscored the locals 7-3 to take the 13-9 verdict and the championship. Sazalski and Quon had three goals for the Lancers over the playoffs while Mike Jackson, Pat Finn, Paul Byrne and Dave Jackson had two each. Singletons went to Hank Heerze, Len Jarvie and Fran- cis DeCoste. ended under cloudy skies. Many athletes had begun the trek home, some with medals and all with memories, before Sunday's conclusion. Most had completed their events during the first two days of action. The top individual per- former of the Games was Calgary track star Victor Quan, a 15-year-old runner who took five gold medals by. taking first in the men's 100, 200 and 400 metre races, and an individual gold medal in the long jump. He was also a member of the winning 400 metre men's relay team. Dianne Yeomans of Edson, Alta., and Becky Smith of Ed- monton, a pair of swimmers, were the top female per- formers in the Games with two gold medals each, based on unofficial totals compiled from results. Ron Butlin, General Chairman of the Games, said he was very pleased with the Games, both in the participa- tion of athletes and in the sup- port given the Games by Calgary spectators. About spectators watched the Games events, with the two-day track events and two-day swimming ac- tivities drawing the largest crowds.

Sun- day in the opening round of the Canadian Senior Men's fast- ball championship. Miners, after building up a 2-0 lead after one inning, saw their hopes of an opening round victory go by the boards in the bottom of the 13th inning when two doubles gave B.C. the win. Jim (Whitey) Haley was the loser. Haley came on in relief of starter George Santoni in the fourth inning. The win went to Dave Ruthowsky, who took over from starter Stan Kern in the eighth. According to coach Tom McLean, the Miners had a chance to win the game in the ninth inning. Miners got three of their four hits, all singles, from the first three men up in the ninth loading the bases. But with none away, Ruthowsky fanned the next three men, with just 11 pitches, to get out of the jam. Miners scored twice in the first as Corrido Santoni walked, George Wasilenak was hit by a pitch and Danny San- toni reached on an error. Corrido was cut down at third on Danny's hit. Wasilenak and Danny Santoni moved to third and second respectively and each scored on illegal pitches. According to McLean, Kern was not placing his foot on the rubber properly and was called on it twice in succession. Lethbridge hits came off the bats of Danny and Corrido Santoni, Wasilenak and Gary Wyrostok. The Miners were scheduled to play Prince Edward Island this morning. Victoria, representing B.C., pounded out 14 hits off Lethbridge pitching while both clubs committed one error. Play lasted until almost midnight local time as 10 provin- cial champions and winners from the Yukon and Northwest Territories began the round-robin portion of a week-long playoff which will need a minimum of 36 games. Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and B.C. are rated as the four teams most likely to succeed but all had trouble Sunday. Ontario was defeated 1-0 in the tournament opener by Yukon's Klondike Kings. Quebec was a 1-0 loser to Prince Edward Island, B.C. had to go 13 innings to get past Alberta 3-2 and Nova Scotia took a tight 6-5 win over New Brunswick. In the other games, Saskatchewan trounced New- foundland 7-0, Manitoba blanked the Yukon 7-0 and Ontario beat Saskatchewan 8-0. Norcrest stars show their stuff Big victory Lethbridge Lakeside may have lost the war but they did win this battle. Leth- bridge Norcrest won the first annual CJOC Little League tournament over the week- end. Als grab dull contest The Norcrest All-Stars showed why they are the number two Little League team in the country over the weekend, winning four straight games to take top spot in the First Annual CJOC Radio Invitational tourna- ment held at the Lakeside Lit- tle League compound. Norcrest took the first two games handily, whipping Fort Macleod 10-0 in the opener on Saturday, and besting Kalispell 12-0 later in the day. Then they edged the local Lakeside All-Stars 6-2 in a Sunday morning contest, and waited for Lakeside to take the B event before clobbering their cross-town rivals 12-0 in the championship final. The Coghlin boys, Jamie and Barry, were at it again in the tournament as they gave opposing pitchers and batters fits. In the championship final against Lakeside, Jamie fann- ed nine batters and gave up only one hit in the five-inning contest. The ten-run rule went into effect in the bottom of the fifth inning when brother Barry blasted his second grand slam home run of the game. Barry had put Norcrest up 4-0 with a similar blast in the initial frame. Barry had a single to go along with his home runs, and Rod Tomita added three more singles for Norcrest, who slashed 10 hits in all against Lakeside pitchers. Rory McLennan was the only Lakeside batter to manage a hit against Jamie Coghlin. In the earlier encounter Sunday, it was Barry Coghlin who went the distance for the victory. He fanned 10 Lakeside batters while Jamie had a pair of singles to lead an eight-hit Norcrest attack against loser Doug Winter. Gord Melnyk had a double for Norcrest while Darren Chaki and Neil Court each had two singles for Lakeside. After losing the first time to Norcrest, Lakeside bombed Kalispell 9-4 in the B event final to earn the right to meet Norcrest again. Cal Byam was the winner in that one while Jerry Jackson suffered the loss. Lakeside had downed Taber 11-6 and Moose Jaw 6-4 on Saturday as Gordon Tait and Darren Chaki registered wins on the mound. Kelly Wenstrom was the losing pitcher for Taber while Lee Wilkinson suffered Moose Jaw's loss. Jamie Coghlin fired a no- hitter'at Kalispell on Satur- day, and was only three walks away from a perfect game. He also fanned seven batters in the four-inning tilt. Lance Gilchrist was credited with Norcrest's vic- tory over Fort Macleod while Tommy Bourassa took the loss. Other scores in the double knockout tournament were Kalispell 6, Edmonton 3; Moose Jaw 12. Pincher Creek 6; Edmonton 12, Fort Macleod 0; Pincher Creek 6, Taber 5; Kalispell 7, Pincher Creek 6; Edmonton 12, Moose Jaw 4; and Kalispell 7, Edmonton 6. MONTREAL (CP) A quick glance at the score of Sunday's Eastern Football Conference game might lead one to believe the contest was exciting. A look at the statistics shows otherwise. Montreal Alouettes defeated Hamilton Tiger-Cats 29-10 before fans and ex- cept for a few moments, the game was dull. The fact the Ticats and Alouettes were meeting for the second time in less than a week and the fifth time, including two ex- hibitions, most likely had something to do with it. "That type of familiarity contributes to a better Alouettes coach Marv Levy explained. "You learn how to stop people better. In Regina, the "Big as Zenon Andrusyshyn is known by his teammates, booted Toronto Argonauts to a 17-13 Canadian Football League win over Saskatchewan Roughriders Sunday in a game before 688 fans. Andrusyshyn led his team to their first-ever victory over the Roughriders in Regina with field goals from 12, 40 and 46 yards, plus a 78-yard single. He also converted Eric Allen's 10-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Mike Rae. A tough Argonaut defence virtually halted quarterback Ron Lancaster and his chargers until Brian Berg's 36-yard single on a wide field- goal attempt at the mark of the second quarter.
