Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Junior B tournament receives big boost The Lethbridge Native Sons, hosts for the Provincial Junior B Canada Winter Games playoffs, received a boost Wednesday night. Two Lethbridge Real Estate firms, Krahn Homes and Astro Realty, presented the Lethbridge Athletic Associa- tion who are organizing the tournament, with cheques worth apiece. Six teams will be taking part in the playoffs slated for the Sportsplex Dec. 27, 28 and 29. The monies received last night will go to defraying the expense of putting on such a tourney Out of town teams will need lodging, meals and travel ex- penses plus officials must be hired for the games and the Sportsplex rental of must be met. Total cost of the three day tournament is ex- pected to range around the mark The additional expenses, over the donated, will be covered by gate receipts Besides the host Native Sons teams participating include Edmonton Mercurys, Calgary South West Totems, and teams from Lloyd- minster, Olds and Peace River. The Native sons are given a good chance to take the tourney but the team that is considered the one to beat is the Edmonton Mercurys. The winner of the playoffs will, of course, go on to repre- sent Alberta in the Canada Winter Games slated for Lethbridge and Southern Alberta Feb. 11-23. Ken Moriyama and Richard Blasco are the co chairmen of the tournament, on behalf of the Sons and the Lethbridge Athletic Association. Native Son coach Howie Yanosik presently has his team practicing at the new Sportsplex in Lethbridge, with the hopes of familiarizing them with the new ice sur- face They play their home games in the Henderson Arena. Kodiaks play twice, at LCI, Magrath The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks and Big Bend College of Moses Lake, Washington will clash twice in games slated for Friday and Saturday The Friday game will commence at at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute gym and the Saturday game will also get un- der way at 9 30 in the Magrath High School gym The Friday battle will follow the LCI Magrath high school games, featuring the girl's game first, then the Rams and the Zeniths playing the middle contest of the three games. Saturday the Raymond girls will meet the Magrath gals in the first game, the Zeniths take on the Cornets in the second game, and the Kodiaks and Big Bend will wind up the evening. The LCI and Magrath games are part of the regular high school basketball schedule while the Kodiak games are ex- hibition Big Bend, while they are fairly close to the Kodiaks in height, are a tough team, as are most United States college teams "We will have to be at our best to beat this Kodiak coach Ben Brooks stated. "They have some good shooters and operate a strong zone defence The Kodiaks have been playing fine defensive ball of late but have been suffering on the shooting end of things. Kendon Eakett will be returning to the lineup after a thigh injury two weeks ago and will help solidify the Kodiak attack. Kodiaks are strong under the boards with Dave Preus and Wayne Anderson playing some tough basketball of late for the team. The Kodiak fast breaking game highlights the abilities of Greg Hess and Curtis Travis while diminutive John Jasiukiewicz and Wendell Cahoon add strength in the backcourt If the Kodiak scoring punch can return to its normal pace Big Bend College is in for two tough ball games Minor hockey The D Q Jets handed the Penguins a 7-2 drubbing in Pee Wee action Tuesday night in Minor Hockey League play Doug Canadme and Scott Maxwell handled all the scor- ing for the Jest Canadme scored tour times and Max- well three Rodney Robertson and David Kammsky scored for the losers Two performances by Tim McQuaig and John Plomp pac- ed the Stampeders to a 6-4 Midget triumph over the Labor Club Bees Andrew Prokop and Miles Ullay added singles for the winners while Gordon Tail, Jerry Hamilton, Greg Braun and Jack Jacobson replied for the Bees.

Owen Hayward, Tim Troman and Andy Kessler scored once each for the Leafs. Grant Weins, with a pair, and Scott Williams with a single, accounted for the Saints' scoring.

Phone 327-3221 The tournament will kick off Friday, the 27th with Ed- monton playing Lloydminster at 1 p.m., Peace River and the Calgary Totems meeting at 4 p.m. and the Native Sons go- ing against Olds in the 8 p.m. contest. There will be three games Saturday and the two finals games Sunday. This tournament provides the only chance that Junior B clubs have at gaining national recognition and the chance to advance to a national cham- pionship playoff. This Saturday the Native Sons will be playing their first game on Sportsplex ice when they meet Rocky Mountain House at 8-30. The game will be free to the Lethbridge and district people who wish to see the Sons in ac- tion The club is putting on the exhibition game free of charge to enable as many peo- ple in this area to see the Sons in action and to become familiar with their style of play. The Sons have an 11-1 record in league play and in those 12 games have only allowed 38 goals against, com- pared with 139 goals scored on opposition goalies. The main reason behind the exhibition game with the Rocky Mountain House club is to help the Sons become aware of the different ice sur- face at the Sportsplex where the heat factor is different from Henderson and the puck reacts differently when com- ing off the boards. The Native Sons play a lively, entertaining brand of hockey and could well be the representatives for this province in the Canada Winter Games. Saturday affords a perfect opportunity to take the entire family and see the team in action Rodeo in Russia? OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla (AP) Texas rodeo star Larry Mahan still is trying to get the rough-and-tumble North American sport introduced to the Soviet Union. Mahan, six-times All Around Cowboy titlist, was here to compete this week in the U.S. rodeo finals and said the first step in getting a rodeo into Russia will be getting his film about it shown there. The Great American Cow- boy, a film starring Mahan and Phil Lyne of George West, Tex won an Academy Award for feature length documen- taries. "I've received a letter from the executive producer of the movie and he said it looked like it was going to be dis- tributed over sajd Mahan. The idea of taking a rodeo to the Soviet Union originated months ago when the Russians saw the rodeo Mahan produced at the Expo 74 in Spokane, Wash. "We went back up there and had a special showing of the film for the people of the Soviet pavilion and they were very excited about it He envisages taking 20 hands who can spare the time from their own using native Russian bucking stock Ted Steinberg of Los Angeles, Mahan's business manager, was less optimistic. "It's really beer, difficult There's a lot of red tape in- volved. There's been no major progress Library, Bottlers triumph In City Recreation Hockey League play the Miner's Library dropped the Labor Club 5-2 while Purity Bottling upended the LCC 6-2. Cam Hodgen scored the hat- trick for the Library while Larry Boulton and Chris Wandler added singletons. Ed Sloboda and Don Klinkhammer scored for the Labor Club. Dennis Oberg had two goals for Purity while singletons went to Ken Hutton, Brian Jesson, Grant Herrington and Tom Yip. Jim Kaip and Robin Hobart were the LCC marksmen. HENRY KRAHN (LEFT) AND BEN REIMER (RIGHT) PRESENT KEN MORIYAMA, CO-CHAIRMAN OF JUNIOR B TOURNAMENT. Hockey Canada, CAHA no longer together OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) pulled out of Hockey Canada Wednesday and announced the proposed formation of its own international council In a move that was describ- ed as getting control back into the hands of the people who run hockey, the association said the proposed council will be the only official Canadian body in international hockey negotiations. Gordon Juckes, CAHA ex- ecutive director, said forma- tion of the international coun- cil, expected by the end of January, is needed to streamline Canada's present system of international negotiations Juckes said the decision was not sudden and Hockey Canada along with professional hockey organizations and government had been notified of the move. Reaction from all bodies in- volved was yet to be received. "We have nothing against what has happened over the past few he said referring to Hockey Canada's participation in international negotiations. "We just felt it was time to streamline the system We're trying to get a co operative organization Douglas Fisher, a member of Hockey Canada's ex- ecutive, said the move by the CAHA will be discussed dur- ing a meeting scheduled for Dec 20. "I don't know how successful they'll be in getting co he said. International hockey and related negotiations are something that can't be easily handled, he said. A CAHA spokesman said Hockey Canada "didn't think much of the idea" of the CAHA forming an inter- national council. "Hockey people aren't runn- ing hockey now and we feel this council is what's he said. "We think we have govern- ment backing." The proposed council is to be made up of "a central coun- cil and a number of subcom- mittees that will deal with specific negotiations and problems REPORT TO COUNCIL The subcommittees will report recommendations or decisions to the council which is expected to be made up of two representatives from Canadian professional hockey; one representative from each players' association; one represen- tative from the Canadian Inter collegiate Athletic Union two federal representatives, two representatives from probably minor and junior councils of the CAHA; and a chairman, Jack Devine, CAHA president "We propose that the CAHA international council be regarded as an autonomous policy making said Devine in a statement "In the interest of further streamlining, we suggest that the council form subcom- mittees to deal with specific competitions, and that the subcommittees be comprised of only those members whose organizations are directly in- volved in the he said. Juckes said the first priorities of the council will be to decide what Canada's policy should be concerning international hockey and lay- ing the ground work for possi- ble competition in the 1976 Winter Olympics.
