Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 9, KODIAK'S CURTIS TRAVIS (25) WINCES AS BALL BOUNCES OUT OF BOUNDS LCC Kodiak's bench main factor in victory over Red Deer Kings By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The key to the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks is their depth. That depth gave the Kodiaks their second victory of the college season in as many days when they bested Red Deer College Kings 69-54 at the LCC Saturday afternoon. Ten of the 11 Kodiaks hit the score sheet, with Curtis Travis leading the way with 13 points. John Jasiukiewitez had 12 points, Dave Preus 11, Glen Shuler nine, Wendell Cahoon eight and Greg Hess seven. The Kodiak balance was a necessary ingredient Satur- day, particularly in the first half when the club had more than its share of problems offensively. Kodiak coach Ben Brooks substituted freely throughout the game, twice changing the entire five man squad at the same time. The LCC coach is never reluctant to go to his bench, but Saturday he went to them more frequently than usual, trying to get his club rolling offensively. "I don't know why, but we always play that way against Red Brooks said. "We never seem to be able to work against them." Jasiukiewitez echoed his coach's feeling, "It's been this way for years. We don't play well at all against Red Deer. We don't play our game and always end up scrambling on offence." If the Kodiak game was off, the girls' squad, the Kodiettes, never got their game rolling at all. They were blasted 85-37 by the Red Deer Queens. Only tour Kodiettes managed to score, and three of those scorer's total output was seven points less than Shirley Yuill, who hooped 22 points. Val Charteris had seven, Shellee Reeder six and Nancy Jensen two. The Kodiettes were only able to hit on 25% of their shots from the floor, while the Queens led by Laurie Martin and Kathy Webber with 18 points, hit on 43% of their attempts. Queens led 50-22 at the half and simply out ran, out- shot and out passed their hosts. Kodiettes' coach Ray Stoddard pointed to his lack of bench strength, with only three reserves, as a factor in the loss. He also pointed out that Doreen Gurney had to miss the game due to an ankle injury suffered Friday night. The loss leaves the Kodiettes with a one win one loss record in league play this year. On the bright side of the ledger for the Kodiak men was their impressive defensive game. "The boys played well on coach Brooks said. "They denied very well and helped each other out a lot. But, you know, its tough going into the dressing room after you've played like WP did and celebrate a win." Dave Preus was a power under the boards for the Kodiaks, pulling in 18 rebounds. Glen Schuler also played well, coming up with 11 rebounds. The Kodiak team accounted for 34 defensive rebounds, but only came away with 13 loose balls off the offensive boards. They forced 15 turnovers during the contest with Curtis Travis coming up with seven oHhem. Greg Hess forced five turnovers. Red Deer showed flashes of a good offence during the game, particularly in the first 10 minutes, but the Kodiak defence soon neutralized their attach. The opening minutes of the game belonged to the Kings as they took advantage of some erratic Kodiak shooting to build up an 11-2 lead. But by the 10 minute mark the Kodiaks had caught up. The lead see-sawed back and forth for a few minutes before the Kodiaks moved in front to stay. Gord Graves was top man for the losers with 12 points while Murray McLean and Keith Thompson chipped in with 10 points apiece. REBOUNDS A small crowd of 200 took in the two afternoon games... Kodiak Wayne Anderson was sent off early in the contest after picking up his second technical foul the second technical was deserved but the first one was highly questionable the Kodiaks are not an afternoon ball club their loss in the President's Tour- nament last week was an afternoon game as well... 57" John Jasiukiewitez finally got to play against somebody shorter than himself, 5'4" Rick David of Red Deer an oddity happened when a Red Deer shot jammed between the rim and the backboard that was one rebound Preus wasn't credited with officially Greg Hess had a frustrating afternoon, shooting wise, hitting on only three of 16 tries the Kodiaks are in Missoula, Mont, tonight for an exhibition game three players didn't make the trip injured Kendon Eakett, Al Pard and Robert Wells. Minor Hockey roundup Steve Tsjurai had a hat trick Thursday night to lead the ACT Bantams to a 6-0 triumph over the Toros in Midget hockey action.

In other Midget action, the Comets skated to a 4-1 win over the Labor Club Bees. Rick Smith, Leonard Rook, Mike Goluk, and Barry Charlesworth scored the Comet goals while Darin Chaki replied for the Labor Club.

Howie Heaton, Scott Max- well and Brian Colwill scored the other goals for the winners while Rick Arelis and Rick Balaz replied for the Pintos.

The Clubs were shocked 15-1 by Victoria Cougars Saturday night and bowed 14-2 Sunday to New Westminster Bruins in a busy weekend schedule.

Dale McMullin, Doug Murray, Gary Kaluzniak and Dan Bonar tallied single goals for Brandon. Rich Gosselin, Dan Kuntz and Scott Williams retaliated for Flin Flon.
