LCI Rams take all- Lethbridge final By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Three Southern Alberta teams rose to the top, but the Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams were the cream of the crop over the weekend in the Eighth Annual LCI In- vitational Basketball Tour- nament. The Rams used a well ex- ecuted pattern offense and a stingy man to man defense to dump the Winston Churchill Bulldogs 45-38 in an all Lethbridge final Saturday night. The other Southern Alberta team, the Cardston Cougars, rebounded from a 36-25 half- time deficit to edge the Bon- nie Doon Lancers 61-59 in the third place game. Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs from Calgary, the tournament's defending champions, took the consola- tion title when they whipped Regina's Thorn Trojans 77-52 Saturday afternoon. A packed house at the LCI gymnasium watched the Rams use a high post to lose their defensive men in the first half as Jim Whitelaw's boys broke open underneath many times for easy layups. With Mark Baldry and Mike Steed directing the attack, and Gary Sinclair and Mike Sheen clearing the boards, the Rams broke out to a 27-17 lead by halftime. Early in the second half, LCI built the lead to 14 points, but a Winston Churchill full court press resulted in three straight steals as the Bulldogs fought back to trail only 36-30 at the end of three quarters. However, the Bulldogs couldn't get any closer. They looked to star Perry Mirkovich consistently in the second half, but the lanky youngster couldn't find the mark. Mirkovich had undoubtedly been the major factor in bringing the Bulldogs to the championship final, but he could manage only four points against the Rams, and coach Glen Alexander pulled him out of the game on several oc- casions. Gary Sinclair wound up as the Rams' top scorer with 14 points while Mark Baldry netted 10 and Mike Sheen nine. Barry Schmidt hooped 14 for the Bulldogs while Hank Heerze added 11. Rams' coach Jim Whitelaw was extremely pleased with his club's performance throughout the tournament, and particularly in the cham- pionship game. "We had a little trouble with their press in the third quarter. But in general, our play was excellent." "We forced them to play at our pace, and we executed very well." The Cardston Cougars, after a heart breaking 42-40 double overtime loss to the Bulldogs in an afternoon semi final, appeared as if they would be blown off the court in the ear- ly minutes of the third place contest. Bonnie Doon was a com- pletely different club from the one which had been thumped 64-48 by the Rams in the other semi- final. With Brent Burr driving the middle effectively, and Cardston having trouble finding the range against a tough Lancer man to man defense, the Edmonton club shot to a 20-9 lead by the end of the first quarter. However, the Cougars held their ground in the second quarter, and began to find the mark in the third. By the end of the third quarter, they trail- ed by only five, and they narrowed the gap to one just 50 seconds later. From there, the two clubs traded baskets the rest of the way, but a pair of clutch free throws by Rod Beazer with 50 seconds left provided the winning margin for Tim Tollestrup's club. Don Yuill led the Cougars with 14 points while Beazer and Ken Leavitt were right begind with 13 and 12 respec- tively. Burr racked up 24 big points for the Lancers, while Gordon Jenkins was next in line with 12. Some sparkling play in the clutch by Vic Tron had boosted the Bulldogs to their double overtime win in the semi final against Cardston. Tron finished the game with 12 points, eight of which came in the fourth quarter and the two overtime periods. Barry Schmidt sent the game into overtime when he stole an in bounds pass and went in for a layup with 20 seconds left in regulation time to knot the score at 37-37. Native Sons keep winning The Lethbridge Native Sons won their seventh and eighth games in a row and extended their Central Alberta Junior B Hockey League record to 11-1 with wins over Olds and Fort Macleod over the weekend. The Native Sons erupted for five third period goals Satur- day night at Henderson Ice Centre to whip Olds Cascaders 7-1, and then AUTOMOTIVE PARTS WHOLESALE National branded manufacturer of automotive parts requires distribution for the Lethbridge market.

WEIGHTMAN AUTOPAR 2108 HOME RO. N.W. CALGARY, ALTA. T3B 1H7 thumped Fort Macleod Rookies 11-5 Sunday in Fort Macleod. Glen Scheibner scored a pair of goals in the third period rally against Olds, and was selected as the game's first star for his efforts. Randy Lowe also had two goals for the locals, with singles coming off the sticks of Gino Guzzi, Reg Osmond, and Mark Scheibner. Dan Rodomske got the only Olds' goal in the cleanly- played contest which featured only seven minor penalties, four of which went to the visitors. Native Sons' Dwayne Howell was selected as the se- cond star while Reg Osmond picked up the third star. The Native Sons outshot the Cascaders 25-16. On Sunday, the locals trail- ed 3-2 at one point in the first period, but battled back to tie it by period's end, and took a 5-4 lead into the dressing room after 40 minutes. Again they sparkled in the final frame, outscoring the Rookies 6-1 for the win. Defenceman Ken Klinkhammer had a hat trick for the Native Sons, and was selected as the game's first star. Dwayne Howell and Albert Dumont scored two goals each and Dennis Hatt, Carrel Osmond, Greg Kveder and Reg Osmond picked up singles. Kelly O'Sullivan scored twice for Fort Macleod, with Mike Plourde, Allan Marchuk, and Dennis Gray getting the others. Second star of the game was Native Sons' goaltender Gary Clark, who turned aside 45 shots during the contest. Still, the Native Sons outshot the Rookies, as they peppered John McLaughlin with 55 shots. The locals picked up 10 of the fourteen penalties handed out, including the game's only misconduct. The Rookies were assessed with a pair of match penalties. The Native Sons' will be in action Thursday when they travel to Claresholm, before hosting Rocky Mountain House at Henderson on Satur- day night. Ferguson heading for record OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Tom Ferguson took first place in steer wrestling in the se- cond go round of the National Finals Rodeo Sunday to inch closer to becoming the top single season money winner in rodeo history. The 24 year old Miami, Okla., cowboy mastered his steer in 7.07 seconds to collect and push his season earnings to If Ferguson can finish in the top three in either steer wrestling or calf roping today, he will break Larry Marian's season money record of 447 set a year ago. The two club's were tied 40- 40 after the first overtime, and Tron's two pointer with 42 seconds left provided the winning margin in the second extra period. Perry Mirkovich led the vic- tors with 16 points while Schmidt had 10 to finish third. Rod Beazer rimmed 14 for the Cougars while Don Yuill and Brent Singer added seven each. Strong performances by Mike Sheen and Gary Sinclair gave the LCI Rams a 35-20 lead by halftime of their semi final against Bonnie Doon, and the issue was never in serious doubt the rest of the way. Both players drove the baseline beautifully on numerous occasions as Sheen wound up with 19 points, 17 of them in the first half, and Sinclair netted 18. Mike Steed added 11 for the Rams while Mark Baldry had eight. Doug Battershill was the moving force for Sir Winston Churchill Bulldogs as they raced to the consolation trophy following a disap- pointing 62-49 loss to Cardston Friday night. Battershill notched 18 points to lead the Bulldogs to a 79-50 drubbing of Walter Murray Marauders in the consolation semi final, and added 21 big points in the 77-52 win over Thorn Trojans in the final. Thorn had advanced to the consolation final by edging Invermere Lakers 59-51 in the other semi final. Doug Quest scored 18 points in that one for Thorn and wound up with 17 against Sir Winston Churchill. Following the championship game, the tournament awards were handed out with the big one, the LCI Championship Trophy, going of course to the Rams. Captain Mark Baldry accepted the trophy. Winston Churchill Bulldogs picked up the G. C. Paterson Finalist Trophy and their Calgary namesakes took home the Eleanor Whitelaw Memorial consolation trophy. The Cardston Cougars were presented with the Northern Bus Lines Third Place Trophy, and their captain Rod Beazer was picked ahead of Baldry and Doug Battershill of Calgary for the George McKillop Rotary Player Sportsmanship Award. Cardston also took the team sportsmanship honors the D.I.P. Fraternity Kyle Sportsmanship Trophy. Bonnie Doon cheerleaders won the Trophies Unlimited Award and Peter Nicholas of Invermere took home the W. L. Neville Foul Shooting Trophy.

Lvnt 7lh St. Shopping a (4M) FILING CABINETS Boutin barely misses second straight shutout By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Lethbridge Bronco net- minder Rollie Boutin is not going to get any closer to back-to-back shutouts than he did his last two outings. If he gets any closer he will have a pair of straight shutouts. Boutin was just two minutes and 13 seconds away from blanking Flin Flon Bombers in Western Canada Hockey League action Saturday even- ing before fans at the Sportsplex. However, Dan Kuntz had other ideas and scored for the Bombers at of the final period to avert a shutout as the Broncos belted the Bombers 7-1. Wednesday evening Boutin kicked out 30 shots to whitewash Brandon Wheat Kings. Saturday night only one of 34 shots eluded the rookie netminder. While Boutin was kicking them out at the Lethbridge end Brian Sutter was leading the way for the Broncos with two goals. Broncos got single markers from Alec Tidey, Ron Delorme, Jerry Bancks, Les Crozier and Bryan Trottier. The locals led 2-0 and 3-0 by periods while getting the nod on 11 of the 21 minor penalties. Each club was assessed a major penalty. Delorme and Trottier com- bined on the first Bronco goal while the locals were shorthanded. Trottier blocked Flin Flon defenceman Bob Fleming's shot and when Fleming fell Trottier and Delorme walked in on Bomber netminder, Roger Swanson and Delorme scored. Sutter made it 2-0 with a power play effort as he fired the rebound off of Doug Gillespie's shot. Another Bomber penalty proved costly to them in the second period as Tidey clicked on a power-play goal after be- ing set up perfectly by Sutter at the side of the Flin Flon net. McQuarrie in 4B' event EDMONTON (CP) Betty Cole and Gale Lee, both of Ed- monton, scored extra-end vic- tories to emerge as the A event qualifiers for the playoffs in the 32-rink Tourna- ment of Pearls curling cham- pionship Sunday. Cole made a five-foot raise double-takeout to count two in the 10th end and then stole one in the extra end to defeat Ruth Wakal of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., 6-5. Lee counted three in her extra end for a 10-7 vic- tory over Marg" Scott of Calgary. Dropping to the B event, Wakal will play the winner of the game between Dorothy Goulet of Edmonton and Donna Clark of Burnaby, B.C. Scott will go against the winner of the match between Myrna McQuarrie of Lethbridge and Polly Beaton of Medicine Hat. Goulet defeated Alice Kmech of Edmonton 10-6, Clark dropped Joan Anderson of Innisfree, Alta., 10-3, McQuarrie nipped Joyce Dawson of Calgary 9-7 and Beaton defeated Mary McKeever of Edmonton 10-3. Minor Hockey conducting ticket blitz The Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association will be conducting a house to house blitz today, Tues- day and Wednesday, selling 1975 Jeux Canada Games Lottery tickets. The Minor Hockey Association is sharing in the profits from the ticket sales, with the proceeds going to assist the over youngsters registered in the program in Lethbridge. Picture Butte, Blair- more and Coleman will also be conducting a blitz, using high school students in the area. It seemed that everytime a penalty was called it turned out harmful to the Bombers. Trottier made it 4-0 as he and Stan Jensen combined after Jensen stepped out of the penalty box. "Our guys were really try- ing to help Rollie get his said Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield. "It's too bad they (the Bombers) had to score, but they paid for it. And pay for it they did as Bancks, Crozier and Sutter, with his second, each scored once before the game ended. The three goals came within a minute and 31 seconds. Ingarfield gave his club the day off Sunday and Monday but Tuesday it will be back to work as the locals prepare for a visit by the Medicine Hat Tigers Friday night. LOOSE PUCKS Brian Sutter got off to a slow start in his first period fight with Mike Flock but did manage to earn a draw Saturday's three stars were Rollie Boutin, Bryan Trottier and Sutter Boutin was also the first star Wednesday Members of the National Hockey League Old-Timers and the Western Old-Timers were guests of the Broncos at Saturday's game.
