Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Sabres help Crozier to his first shutout Pressure has been building for Meehan By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Assuming captaincy of a National Hookey League club can be a burden at any time. But when that club is floundering, the load is thatmuch more difficult. Sid Smith discovered It during the 1950s when Toronto Maple Leafs were permanent playoff outcasts. The pressures finally forced him into an early retirement. Young Gerry Meehan is faced with the same pressures this year at Buffalo, where the Sabres are firmly entrenched in last place in the now expanded NHL's East Division. Meehan, named by coach Punch Imlach to replace veteran Floyd Smith earlier this season, responded to the early challenge but had been blanked for more than a month before his score Thursday night launched Buffalo to a 2-0 win over Los Angeles Kings, tailen-ders in the West. In the only other game, De- ANDY CAPP i' Davidson blanks Nats Lead changes hands By THE CANADIAN PRESS The lead in both divisions of the Western Canada Hockey League changed Thursday night as Calgary Centennials and Brandon Wheat Kings beat weak sisters. The Centennials playing before a hometown crowd of 2,734, shut out' Vancouver Nats 6-0 to move one point ahead of Edmonton Oil Kings in the western division. In tine only other scheduled game, Brandon beat Victoria Cougars 64 to move past Saskatoon Blades into first place in the east. John Davidson registered his fourth shutout of the season as he faced only 18 Vancouver shots in the Calgary net. The first period was Vancouver's best as they fired 10 shots at Davidson, but they ran out of steam and Minor hockey The Jets scored two unanswered goals in the second period of play and held on to edge the Canadians 3-2 in Bantam "A" action Thursday night. World record falls Thursday SYDNEY, Australia (Reuter) - Australian teen-ager Shane Gould swam the 800-metre freestyle event tonight in a world record time of eight minutes 58.1 seconds. She clipped 1.2 seconds off the time set by Anne Simmonds of the United States in Minsk, Russia, last September. This time has still to be ratified and the official world time is held by another Australian girl, Karen Moras, who clocked 9:02.4 at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland last year. Doug Stephens, Ross Dickson and Colin Barnes tallied a goal each for the Jets while Doug Kitaguchi and Tom Block replied for the Canadians. In Bantam "B" play, the Hornets had their own way slashing the Mustangs 7-2 last night. Dale Pytcia notched two goals for the Hornets while Mike Rath, Peter Novak, Bark-lay Polis, Gary Mikula and Ed Parker added singles. Keith Johnson and Cameron Mitchell scored for the Mus- Dave Jackson rammed in two goals as he led ACT to an 8-3 victory over the Ti-Oats. Randy Watmough, D a r r e 1 Osmond, Ron Moser, Rick Collier, Grant Marchuk and Greg Kveder aided with solo markers. Terry Emard was the lone Ti-Cat marksman potting a goal in each of (he three periods. managed only four in eacW of the next two periods. The loss left Vancouver in fifth place in the western division, two points ahead of last-place Victoria. SCORES IN FIRST Centennials' defeoceman Jim Watson scored the only goal of the first period on a power play and it stood the rest of the way. Calgary led 4-0 after two periods. Rookie Denny McLean with his first of the year, Brian Walker, Marty Kissel, Ron Homenuke and Russ Wieehaik scored Calgary's other goals. The win gave Calgary 31 points from 20 games while Edmonton has 30 from 22 games. In Brandon, the Wheat Kings were up 2-1 after 20 minutes and 5-3 going into the last period and then had to withstand a strong Victoria attack. HITS EMPTY NET The Cougars were behind 5-4 with a minute left when Brandon drew a penalty. Hoping to tie it up, Victoria pulled goal-tender Darryl Fedorak for a two-man advantage. However, Robbie Neale stole the puck and fired into the empty net to cement the win. Grant Farncombe, playing his first WCHL game, Grant Horn-son, Dale Cook, Bob Murdoch and Neil Melnyk scored the other Brandon goals. Don Morrison scored twice for Victoria with Harvey Schmidt and Wayne Bianchdn getting the others. Brandon now has 30 points from 20 games compared with Saskatoon's 29 from 21 games. Officiating not the best DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -Victor Jerry Quarry was mad, and so was battered loser Lou Bailey Thursday night after Iowa's first professional boxing card since the sport came under state control 18 months ago. "That's the worst refereeing I have ever had in my professional career of 50 fights," said Quarry after scoring a unanimous decision over the ring-wise Bailey from Omaha, Neb. Quarry, the second-ranked challenger for Joe Frazier's heavyweight championship, knocked Bailey down six times in the featured event of the four-bout program, but failed to get a knockout. The Bellflower, Calif., native, came into the fight fresh from a 64-second knockout of European champion Jack Bodell two weeks ago in London, but was taken the limit by Bailey who came into the bout with a 14-35* 5 record. * i Kinsmen Dinner Feb. 5 If you are a sportsman and enjoy being such keep the evening of Feb. 5 open. The Lethbridge Kinsmen Club, at an informal gathering Thursday evening, announced Feb. 5 as the date of its 19th annual Kinsmen Dinner. "The greatest dinner of them all," said Joe Garagiola, a former head table guest. Many of the world's top athletes have been guests of the Kinsmen over the years and according to dinner chairman Bill Johnson 1972 will be no exception. "You can't break with tradition," Johnson said. "So we will be after the top names and that's all there is to it." Head table guests announcements will be made beginning as early as next week. Tickets for the dinner have been set at $20 and an be ob-ained at Marcel's, the Club Cigar Store, Boyer's or from any member of the Kinsmen Club. Buster wants an apology NEW YORK (AP) - Buster Mathis and his manager threatened legal action Wednesday unless ABC and sportscaster Howard Cr/sell publicly apologize for their television presentation of the Mathis-Muhammad Ah fight. "The American Broadcasting Company and Howard Cosell have seriously damaged the reputation and earning power of a serious athlete," Jimmy Ise-lin, president of Peers Management, which handles Mathis, said at a news conference. Mathis and Iselin also said they would ask that ABC show th- film of the fight in its entirety. Roone Arledge, president of ABC Sports, said in a statement that there would be no showing of the fight and no apology. Cosell derided the fight when it was shown on Wide World of Sports Nov. 20, three days after Ali won an easy 12-round decision. The fight was shown in part with the action accompanied by music and subtitles such as "Ouch." Iselin said after the news conference that he would confer with his lawyer on what action to take if he does not receive satisfaction from ABC. Ali, who talked to the news conference via telephone from Philadelphia, said he was not upset with the presentation. "They're entitled to present what they want to," he said. Hoop tourney opened today The fifth annual Lethbridge Collegiate Institute hoop tourney got under way this afternoon.

Tonight's only game has Chicago Black Hawks in Oakland against California Golden Seals. Meehan, coming off a 24-goal season for the first-year Sabres, was a logical choice for Imlach, who had the 25-year-old Toronto native earlier in his career, when both were with the Leafs. Median's free-wheeling, fluid skating style was one of the few bright spots in the Buffalo lineup and served as an inspirational gap for the veteran-studded Sabres and up-and-coming rookies. But the goal against Los Angeles, his sixth of the season, was his first since Oct. 30. Goaltender Roger Crozier registered his first shutout in a Buffalo uniform, facing 31 shots including 14 in a torrid final period. DUFF RETIRES The Sabres played without veteran winger Dick Duff who announced his retirement after 16 full seasons. The Sabres were the 35-year-old Kirkland Lake, Ont., native's fifth NHL team. He played previously under Imlach at Toronto and later had stints with New York Rangers, Montreal Canadiens and Los Angeles before moving on to Buffalo in December, 1970. "One of the NHL's greatest little players," said Imlach of Duff at a news conference called Thursday to announce the retirement. The veteran left winger, at 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, was small by physical standards for the NHL but made up for his stature with an aggressive brand of hockey.1 Imlach said Duff, who performed on six Stanley Cup champion teams-two at Toronto and four at Montreal-was at his best in the post-season action and "was one of the best playoff hockey players I ever coached." The Flyers and Detroit traded scores by the Wings' Nick Li-bett and Bill Clarke at Philadelphia in the second period. But goalies Joe Daley, in the Detroit net, and Philadelphia's Doug Favell, were otherwise unbeatable in an evenly-played game that saw Detroit hold a 27-26 edge in shots. Only seven minor penalties were assessed, four to the Flyers. BUFFALO 2 LOS A NOBLES 1 First Period - 1. Buffalo, Meehan t (Atkinson, Evans) 72:20.

Mosca pleaded not guilty to a charge that he assaulted George Rose, of Waterdown, Cut., Oct. 27 after a minor traffic accident involving the two men. John Agro, CFL Players' Association counsel, said the conviction would be appealed.
