Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i2 THE LETHBHIOGE HERALD Saturday, 14, 1974 Oil Kings sharp trimming Cougars By THE CANADIAN PRESS Robin Sadler, wearing bor- rowed skates after his were stolen Thursday night, scored two goals Friday night to help Edmonton Oil Kings to a 6-3 win over Victoria Cougars and end Victoria's 17-game un- defeated streak in the Western Canada Hockey League. Victoria, with a comfor- table 16-point lead atop the WCHL's Western Division, had won 16 games and tied one since the streak started Oct. 26. In other games, Regina Pats blanked Winnipeg Clubs 5-0, New Westminster Bruins and Calgary Centennials played to a 3-3 tie and Saska- toon Blades and Brandon Wheat Kings deadlocked at 6- 6. Wayne Perkins also scored two goals for the Oil Kings, who have a five-game un- defeated streak and are fifth in the West. Tony Currie and Mike Will had the other Ed- monton goals, while Jim Gustafson, Irv Bowles and Tim Williams replied for the Cougars. Winnipeg, playing before a home-town crowd, went down to its ninth consecutive loss as the Pats scored a goal in each of the first two periods and added three in the third. Rob Tudor had two goals, while Jim Minor, Ross Mahoney and Mike Harazny also contributed goals. Don Ashby pleased the Cal- gary fans with his second goal of the game in the third period, a 15-foot wrist shot that gave Calgary the tie. Don Eastcott had the other Calgary goal, while Mark Lofthouse, with two, and Harold Phillipoff replied for the Bruins. Gary Kaluzniak scored from a scramble in front of the Saskatoon net with 28 seconds left to play to give the home-ice Wheat Kings the tie. His goal, which came with goalie Elaine Peterson on the bench in favor of a sixth at- tacker, capped a three-goal comeback for Brandon that began midway through the final period.

Title Les Thornton vs Big John Quinn Kelly Twins vs Hito Kamata Land vs Klokeid Ivey Strong vs Hart Yagi Watch Stampede Wrestling on CJOC-TV By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer One Lethbridge team put itself in the driver's seat, but another dug itself into a deep hole Friday night as the Alberta basketball playoffs for the Canada Winter Games got underway at the Universi- ty of Lethbridge gymnasium. The University of Lethbridge Pronghorn women's team, representing the Southern Zone, won their first game in a round robin preliminary tournament by whipping Cold Springs 66-43. However, Doug's of Lethbridge, the Southern male representative, was thumped 76-55 by Calgary's Mount Royal College Cougars in their initial contest.

A Frl. till 9 p.m.) 327-7595 Both the men's and women's tournaments feature a three team round robin preliminary, with the top two teams going into a best of three final which winds up Sunday. The two winners will repre- sent the province in the Canada Winter Games in Lethbridge in February. Action in the tournament resumed this morning, with the two northern zone reps getting their first tests. Ed- monton Barons faced Mount Royal in men's action, while Cold Springs took on Universi- ty of Alberta Pandas in women's play. Doug's was scheduled to tangle with Edmonton at one this afternoon, while the female Pronghorns played the Pandas beginning at three. The top two teams begin their best of three final tonight, with the women hitting the floor at 7 p.m., and the men following at nine. Games start again Sunday at a.m. The outstanding play of Stu Bauck throughout the game led the Cougars to their 21 point victory over Doug's. The stocky blond player wound up with 29 points, which were evenly distributed between 15 foot jumpers, and beautiful drives underneath. Bauck was particularly effective in the second half, as time and again, he would come up with a pair of clutch baskets to stifle a rally by Doug's. Doug's, meanwhile, tried to win the game from the out- side, as they consistently took long outside shots which miss- ed the mark. Jack Chymboryk was the only Lethbridge player to hit consistently whatsoever, as he fired in 14 points. Robin Hansen managed 12 for the locals while brother Bob add- ed nine. Both clubs started out slowly, and Doug's led 12-11 after eight minutes of play. However, the locals started taking their bad shots at this point, and Mount Royal scored ten straight points in the next three minutes and led 31-24 at the half. Early in the second half, Bauck was outstanding, as he pushed the Cougar margin to 13 points with 15 minutes to go. Doug's mounted four separate comebacks in the last 15 minutes, and came within four at one point, but their inconsistent shooting prevented them from ever regaining the lead. With two and a half minutes left, they trailed only 65-55, but the Cougars outscored them 11-0 in the late going, and built up a large point margin which could become a major factor should the round robin result in a tie.

In the women's game, the Pronghorns, led by Sandra Knight, solved a variety of Cold Spring defenses in the se- cond half to run away with the game. The locals had some trouble in the first half with the pla- toon system and zone defenses of Cold Springs, and could manage only a 28-22 lead going into the dressing room. But outstanding shooting by Knight, and the steady play of Lori Lilja sparked the Pronghorns in the second 20 minutes as they cruised to their 23 point win. Knight finished the game with 18 big points, while Lilja was next in line with 10. Kathy Peacock, Debbie Yanota, and Jacy Fox each added eight points. Teresa Thompson led Cold Springs scorers with 11 points, while Zewe Hilda hooped seven and Wendy Calvert six. Coach Jack Lilja was able to substitute freely throughout the second half, while still building up a substantial point margin in the event of a tie. Sons dump Cattle Barons The Lethbridge Native Sons dumped the Claresholm Cattle Barons 8-3 Thursday night in a Central Alberta Junior B Hockey League game played in Claresholm. The Sons, who led 5-1 at the end of the first period and 6-3 at the end of two, received two goals apiece from Gordie Gejdos, Albert Dumont and Glen Scheibner. Terry Roberts and Gino Guzzi scored the other two goals for the Sons. Bryan Masszon, Bruce Koch and Don Blanchard replied for the Barons. Sons' goalie Garry Warner made 31 saves while Glen Weisensel stopped 38 Sons' shots in the Claresholm net. The two teams were assess- ed seven minor penalties each and Claresholm picked up one misconduct penalty. WFL chances a slim 50-50 NEW YORK (AP) Tom Origer, who owns a World Football League franchise, was talking Friday about the league's problems. "I think it has a less than 50- 50 chance of surviving for a second he said. Origer, owner of Chicago Fire, other WFL owners and potential investors are here for two days of league meetings which conclude today. Approval was given at Fri- day's meeting to a reorganiza- tion plan which one owner said calls upon each team to post by the end of the year. The owner, who declined use of his name, said some of the from each team would be used to pay back player salaries and other debts, and that the sum was arrived at as a means of forc- ing out of the league any owner not willing to put up that much. Origer, whose Fire franchise quit playing with one game left in the season, did not give specific reasons for his belief that the league would not make it. But he has previously said he thought the league's lack of credibility would prevent it from attracting the investors it needs. The reorganization plan, drafted by league president Chris Hemmeter, also is re- ported to call on each team to place enough money in escrow to cover all its operating ex- penses for the 1975 season. One source said the league also agreed to try to operate next year with eight teams, four less than began the 1974 season. "I feel we have made a very positive forward step said Hemmeter, adding he be- lieved the WFL would sur- vive. Franchises allowed to vote were Birmingham, Orlando, Southern California, Hawaii, Memphis, Philadelphia and Chicago. The Portland, Charlotte and Shreveport franchises did not vote and their future is in jeopardy even if the WFL survives. In an evening session, the league moved to take the Florida Blazers' franchise from managing general partner Rommie Loudd and give it to Orlando motel man David Williams, the club's original backer. Williams invested nearly million in the team before parting com- pany with the controversial Loudd. Lawyer Bob Deutsch, repre- senting Loudd, cast the lone dissenting vote against the reorganization plan. He said he would wait for written notification of the league's plan to oust Loudd before deciding what to do next. "I don't think it really mat- ters at this added Deutsch. "There is no World Football League because there is no entity which has any money to even pay its telephone bill and operate. And to be a member of an en- tity which cannot operate is meaningless."
