Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Monday, 2, 1974 FLORIDA-WEST INDIES CRUISES 7 r Mpwt Calgary FrMqr, Commtnolng JM. 10, 1975 MOt ptr pwton (4ouMt occupancy) ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL MMM 321-3201 Strange occurence gives Valdes win PARIS (AP) Gratien Tonna knelt as if in prayer in his corner. And in a moment of indelible boxing lunacy his seconds screamed: "Grazi, stay down. You're champion of the world. They'll dis- qualify the other guy." Instead, the Belgian referee, Jean Deswert, counted out the Frenchman and Rodrigo Valdes of Colom- bia had an llth round knockout and a firm hold on his World Boxing Council half of boxing's two-headed mid- dleweight title. Saturday night after the fight, Tonna's story about his corner telling him to stay down seemed like after-the- fact excuse-finding, but the fight films on Sunday showed his trainer, Rodolfo Agostino of Italy, telling him not to get up. The reasoning was that Valdes had hit Tonna on a break and would be dis- qualified. The film pictured Valdes hitting on the break, ad- mittedly while Tonna's hands were at his sides after taking the regulation one step backwards. "It was all very said Deswert, who com- mented on the film at a restaurant while Valdes and Tonna sat together. "Tonna's corner did say 'stay down.' Why? God knows. If I were go- ing to disqualify Valdes I never would have started counting. As it was, in my instructions before the fight I told them to keep their guards up on the breaks. "Tonna had all the time in the world to get Deswert continued. "He was looking for the disqualification. If he had gotten up I would have given him a Valdes." Ironically, Deswert had Tonna ahead by one point when the end came. That clashed with the two judges who gave Valdes a two-point edge going into the llth round. Valdes, 28, praised Tonna, 25, as the strongest man he had ever fought and said that he could be a future cham- pion. The Colombian is now pointing towards Carlos Monzon, the World Boxing Player wins RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Gary Player of South Africa coasted to victory in the 000 Brazil Open golf tour- nament, shooting a two-over- par 71 in Sunday's final round and finishing five strokes ahead of the pack. Player had a ?2-hole total of 267, nine shots under par. It was a tournament record. Mark Hayes of South Africa was second at 272. Brazil's Jaime Gonzalez, this year's winner of the world amateur championship, and France's Jean Garaialde tied for third at 280. Herald Sports Association champion. Gil Clancy, Valdes' manager, said "Monzon doesn't seem to want to fight. If not, and there's any interest here, we'll come back and take Tonna again. He's got tremendous heart." But matchmaker Charley Michaelis said later Sunday that Valdes has agreed in principle to put his middleweight title on the line against the winner of the Max Cohen-Jean Claude Bouttier fight, scheduled for Paris Dec. 16. Minor hockey Lethbridge Colts trimmed Redcliff Elks 9-3 in a Little Spud League contest Satur- day. Lloyd Krikke was the star of the game as he banged home four goals for the Colts. Tom Block added two more and singletons went to Glen Lef- fingwell, Larry Albush and Rick McRoberts. Henry Hefelbein, Russell Clements and Kirby Chiselow scored for the losers. In Bantam B action the Blades edged the Ramblers 3- 2 behind the two goal perfor- mance of Clark Bosch. Jason Coma also scored for the winners. Rambler goal getters were Doug Henderson and Doug Kowal. Also in Bantam B play the Nuggets and the Bruins battl- ed to a 4-4 tie. Danny Qrich scored twice for the Bruins and Blake Tillotson and Vernon Ptycia added the other two goals. For the Nuggets it was Chris Lengyel, Shawn Poytress, Darren Moroz and George Siegl. The Blazers downed the Raiders 4-1 in Bantam B play with Robert Wood, Brian Megella, Allen Clampitt and Bill Rab handling the scoring for the winners. Marischal Dearmond scored the lone Raider marker. Daryl Robertson with three goals and Frank Popson and Darren Seibel with two each led the Vikings to a 10-2 win over the Bears in a Pee Wee contest. Graeme Bowden, Keith Takeyasu and Ken Bradely also scored for the winners. Randy Denecky accounted for both Bear markers. Rod Haughton shut out the Argos as the Rangers won 3-0. Darren McLain was the total offensive shew for the winners as he scored all three goals. Dave Conine, Ray Landeau and Todd Thomas scored for the Pee Wee Canucks as they defeated the Penguins 3-1. Mitch Malchow was the lone Penguin goal getter. In a Friday Pee Wee contest the Centennials edged the Flyers 4-3. GREG HESS WHO WAS NAMED THE TOURNAMENT MVP, DRIVES FOR THE BASKET Kodiaks miss victory by a mere three points Grads take LCC tournament Warriors down Oilers Lethbridge Warriors scored four times in the first period Sunday and went on to defeat Okotoks Oilers 6-1 in a Southern Alberta Juvenile League contest. Richard Shardlow picked up the hat-trick for the winners and Michel Dumont and Dave Jackson added two apiece. Singletons went to Greg Mon- tieth, Ken Bond, and Ron Moser. Dana Robinson scored four times for Okotoks while Steve Dunham and Jim Minue addsd one apiece. Warriors were outshot 37 to 27 in the game. The Oilers picked up four minor penalties and the Warriors five. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The LCC Kodiaks won the battle but lost the war Satur- day night at the Lethbridge Community College gym. Kodiaks defeated Northern Montana College by 22 points, 105-83, in the final game of the President's Invitational Basketball Tournament but ended up in second spot in the tournament standings, a scant three points behind the winners, the Kodiak Grads. The Kodiaks went into the final game knowing they must do two things win, and then win by 25 points in .order to become tournament cham- pions. This situation was set up when the Kodiaks dropped a 99-81 decision to the Grads Saturday afternoon. That loss left both the Kodiaks and the Grads with one win and one loss. The Grad loss came at the hands of Northern Mon- tana Friday, 84-81. Montana had a 2-0 record going into the final game, hav- ing beaten the Grads Friday and Mount Royal College of Calgary 90-73 Saturday after- noon. The Cougars ended the tournament with three losses and no wins. By beating Montana in the final game of the two-day round robin tourney, the Kodiaks set up a situation where three teams, the Grads, Kodiaks and Montana, all had two wins and one loss. The winner of the President's NOTICE Effective December 2nd, 1974 Pro Motors Ltd. 1520 2nd Avenue S. Mazda-Mercedes Benz Dealers Phone 328-8117 Will be observing NEW WINTER HOURS (UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE) Monday thru Wednesday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday 9 a.m. to p.m. Invitational was then decided by selecting the team with the best for and against scoring average during the event. That club was the Grads. In order to win the championship the Kodiaks had to defeat Montana by 25 points they fell three short. Friday the Grads lost to Montana, but they rebounded from that defeat Saturday afternoon by handily defeating the Kodiaks. The only time the Kodiaks were close in the 99-81 contest was in the first two minutes when they were knotted at five points apiece. The Grads went on to control the game and held a 43-35 edge at the half. They added to this lead in the second half and at one time, with seven minutes remaining, held a 23 point lead. Grads hit on 41% of their shots from the floor while the Kodiaks could only manage a 35% shooting average. Besides outshooting the Kodiaks the Grads, thanks mainly to six foot six inch Bruce Millis, dominated the defensive boards. Sharp shooting Alec Dudas hit for 20 points in the game as did Robin Hansen. These two Grads were outscored by Greg Hess of the Kodiaks with 21 points, but he was the lone scoring bright light for the losers. In their final game with Montana the Kodiaks revers- ed their showing against the Grads and came out with a fast breaking, high scoring team effort. Kodiaks led throughout the game and on two occasions in the final minute had the 25 point advantage they needed to win the tourney, but failed to hold onto that all-important lead. Fouls proved to be the Kodiak downfall as Montana gained 15 points at the charity strip and the Kodiaks lost three of their key players, Al Pard, Dave Preus and John Jasiukiewicz, via the foul route. Greg Hess, who was chosen the tournament's most valuable player, fired home 33 points for the LCC club. Curtis Travis, who was absolutely brilliant throughout the game both offensively and defen- sively, was next in line with 20 points. Mike Evans was top man for the Montana College team with 20 points. The Grads second victory of the tournament came Satur- day evening when they dowri- ed Mount Royal 77-69 in an ex- tremely tight game Saturday night. The Grads, who trailed 34-32 at the half, didn't take the lead until after the 10 minute mark of the final stanza. Once again Millis was a power on the boards for the winners. Alec Dudas led the Grad scoring with 14 points and Gary Williams and Robin- High school volleyball Nobleford High School swept both boys' and girls' titles in their division in the Southwest Zone volleyball playoffs over the weekend; The Nobleford boys' will now advance to the A division provincials in Eaglesham December 14 while their female counterparts will enter the Alberta finals in Vermilion on the same date. In AA division action, Taber St. Mary's took the boys' Southwest crown while F. P. Walshe of Fort Macleod won the girls' event. St. Mary's will compete in the provincials in Coronation December 14 while F. P. Walshe will travel to High River. Winston Churchill girls and Taber W. R. Myers boys took the AAA titles Saturday, and will travel to Stettler and Ponoka respectively for provincial competitions next weekend. Meanwhile, the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute teams were in Edmonton this weekend to compete in the AAAA provincial cham- pionships. However, they came home empty-handed as Edmonton Bonnie Doon took both titles. Breaks nose LONDON (Reuter) Boone Kirkman of the United States has had to pull out of a heavyweight fight Tue'sday with European champion Joe Bugner of England because of a broken nose. Hansen chipped in with 12 apiece. Clark Dennill was top man for the Cougars, hooping 20 points. Montana College got 18 points from Rick Ness in their 90-73 victory over the Cougars Saturday afternoon, in a slow moving contest. Clark Dennill and Dave Fulks scored 14 points each for the Cougars. A resume of the six game tournament shows Montana defeating the Grads 84-81 in the first game; Kodiaks dumping the Cougars 90-74 in game nirnber twO; on Satur- day in the first game Montana beat Mount Royal 90-73; Gratis beat the Kodiaks 99-81 in game two; Grads defeated the Cougars 77-69 in game three and in the final game the Kodiaks swamped Montana 105-83. A tournament All-Star team was chosen at the completion of the last game. The winning Grads placed two on the squad, Alec Dudas and Gary Williams. Butch Marshall of Northern Montana was named to the team as was Stew Bauck of Mount Royal. Al Pard was selected from the Kodiaks, and Greg Hess was named the tourney MVP. REBOUNDS An odd oc- csirance took place during the Kodiak Montana game at the beginning of the second half.. Kodiak Dave Preus cleared the ball off his own backboard and then, forgetting that they'd changed ends at the half, went right back up with a shot... fortunately he missed at the beginning of the final game the championship belonged to any one of three teams besides the Kodiaks and the Grads, Montana could have won it all by beating the Kodiaks the winning Grads got as much fun out of kissing the trophy presenters as they did winning the tourney Kodiak Curtis Travis would not have been out of place on the All-Star squad nor would Mike Evans of Montana or Dave Fulks of the Cougars Alec Dudas, who was seen wender- ing the hallways dressed in a towel looking for the shower room, was a constant threat for the Grads with his ac- curate outside shooting... in the final game the Kodiaks worked together as a unit for the first time in the tourney if their display was evidence of things to come, the regular season is going to be something to sec.
