Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Hess leads locals with 25 points Saturday, 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 23 Flyers unbeaten in last seven outings Kodiaks upend Big Bend Flames tried hard to end streak D-, DaThCC limiVIUC I _ By GARRY ALLISON Herald Writer The all around play of Greg Hess was the highlight of the Lethbridge Community College's 96-73 victory over the Big Bend Community College Vikings from Moses Lake, Washington Friday night. The game, played at the LCI gym, belonged to the Kodiaks GREG HESS right from the opening tip off. The local squad opened up an ear- ly 10-1 lead and never looked back as the closest the United States team could come was a seven point difference. Hess rang up 25 points for the Kodiaks to lead the club in that category. He also lead in assists with nine and stolen balls with four. His rebounding total of 15 was second only to Dave Preus who had 16. Seldom did the Vikings appear to be in the contest, and the points they did make were mainly from outside shots as the Kodiak defence denied them the inside lanes. Coach Ben Brooks was proud of the work his Kodiaks did throughout the game. "Every man got into the game and every one of them played well. I loved to see it. We were especially tough on defence." The Kodiak shooting, which has been suspect the past few games, improved immensely, although coach Brooks felt his boys could take more advantage of the quick shots outside. "We weren't taking them, but we were getting inside and hitting." Only one member of the Kodiaks failed to make the score sheet. Kevin Krebs had a hot hand for the Moses Lake club from Washington, as the six foot two inch Viking hit for 29 points, a vast majority of which were outside shots. Mike Ransford racked up 19 points for the Big Bend club and Joe Bales chipped in with 14 more. Kendon Eakett, playing his first game since injuring his thigh three weeks ago, was the second highest point getter for the Kodiaks with 12 points. "The leg felt pretty good Kendon said after the game, "but its still not back to its full strength. You could say its about Three Kodiaks. Curtis Travis, Dave Preus and Glen Schuler all had 10 points, while John Jasiukiewicz chipped in with eight. Wayne Anderson and Guy Pomohac had seven apiece. Jasiukiewicz was the second highest man in the assist department for the Kodiaks with five Schuler had three steals over the game and the Kodiak rebound total as a team was 67. REBOUNDS Scott Frost of Big Bend College in Washington was aided from the floor early in the contest.. he fell heavily under the boards at his own end, suffering from an apparent knee injury Kodiak trainer Jack Linderman tend- ed to the fallen player's knee with an ice pack and tape job Bruce Hamilton played an impressive shift for the Kodiaks dur- ing the last 10 minutes of the contest Wendell Cahoon fouled out for the Kodiaks with over seven minutes remaining in the game the LCI gym was over half full for the Kodiak Big Bend game, which followed the LCI Magrath high school con- tests the Kodiaks and Big Bend meet again tonight at Magrath the two teams will play at 9.30. following the Magrath Raymond high school games the games will take place in the Magrath high school gym. Zeniths defeat LCI Rams Memories of victory may make losing easier to take, but they don't make ball games any easier to win. The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams learned that Friday night as they quickly came down off their cloud after, winning the LCI in- vitational last weekend, and suffered a 39-36 loss at home to the Magrath Zeniths. Coach Jim Whitelaw ex- pressed the opinion after the game that his club had not yet adjusted to its big win last weekend, and just were not ready for the Zeniths last night at the LCI. The Rams led 22-14 at the half, but let down in the se- cond half for the loss Tom Alston and Ron Harker paced a balanced Magrath at- tack with eight points each. Mark Baldry and Gary Sinclair hooped 11 points apiece in a losing cause. Elsewhere in Southern Alberta 4A Boys' Basketball action, the Winston Churchill Bulldogs fashioned a strong comeback in the second half to edge the Raymond Comets 48-46 in Ravmond. The Bulldogs trailed 26-17 at the half, but the outstanding play of Perry Mirkovich and Barry Schmidt paced the com- eback effort. Mirkovich finished the game with 22 points while Schmidt added 13. Robert Heggie led Raymond with 14 points while Jeff Hill rimmed 13. In the other 4A game, Cardston Cougars built up a 34-18 halftime lead at Catholic Central and coasted to a 57-42 win over the CCHS Cougars. Don Yuill fired in 19 points for Cardston while steady Rod Beazer accounted for 14. John Macley led Catholic Central with eight points. In junior varsity action, Jeff Peterson's 17 points paced the LCI Colts to a 54-46 win over Magrath Eagles. Randy Haynes had 14 points for the losers. In Raymond, the Mustangs got 16 points from Don Williams as they edged Winston Churchill Mastiffs 50- 40 Brian Seleski led Churchill scorers with 17 points.

Another National League veteran, Pete Rose of Cincin- nati Reds, failed in his bid to hit .300 a 10th straight year, batting .284. But he had the most runs in the league, 110, hit the most doubles, 45, and played in the most games, 163, official statistics showed Saturday. Ralph Garr of Atlanta Braves won his first batting ti- tle with a .353 average, collected the most hits, 214, and the most triples, 17.

EASING National Identification Card Predictable Costs Frees investment usually less than Adaptable to private individual as well as business Current model prestige Easy way to get second car By ROSS HOPKINS The Canadian Press Atlanta Flames came within 93 seconds Friday night of ending a five-game losing streak. Rick MacLeish burst the At- lanta bubble, tipping in Joe Watson's slap shot at of the final period to give Phila- delphia Flyers a 3-2 home-ice victory over the Flames in the only National Hockey League game scheduled. The win stretched the Flyers' unbeaten string to seven victories and a tie. Ironically, their last loss came Nov. 24 in Philadelphia at the hands of the 4-3 decision. It was the llth goal of the season for MacLeish, a 25- year-old native of Cannington, Ont. It came with Atlanta defenceman Ed Kea in the penalty box. Bob Kelly and Reggie Leach were the other Philadelphia scorers. Curt Bennett and Buster Harvey were the Atlanta marksmen. Bennett had put the Flames in front 1-0 in the first period by converting a rebound while the Flyers were a man short. But Leach's goal, his 12th in the Flyers' last 10 games, tied it before the period ended. The game was less than nine minutes old when Philadelphia's Dave Schultz tangled with Jean Lemieux of Atlanta. Schultz, who had pil- ed up 19 minutes in penalties prior to his altercation with ejected from the contest at Harvey backhanded a shot past Philadelphia goaltender Bernie Parent with only 36 seconds gone in the second period to put the Flames back in front. But Kelly tied it later in the period on a shot from directly in .cont of Atlanta goalie Phil Myre, setting the stage for MacLeish's game winner. The Flames get a chance to put a halt to their skid tonight against the Maple Leafs in To- ronto in one of eight games. New York Rangers are at St. Louis to play the Blues, Los Angeles Kings meet the Islanders in New York and Montreal Canadiens play host to California Seals. Washington Capitals travel to Boston to meet the Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins entertain Chicago Black Hawks, Van- couver Canucks tangle with the Scouts in Kansas City and Buffalo Sabres face the North Stars in Bloomington, Minn. Sunday games have Los An- geles in New York against the Rangers, the Islanders in Bos- ton, St. Louis at Philadelphia, Washington entertaining To- ronto. Pittsburgh at Detroit, Chicago playing host to Van- couver and California in Buf- falo. The Flames will be meeting a Leaf club which apparently has cleared up a com- munications problem between coach Red Kelly and the players. In an interview Wednesday, Leaf centre Norm Ullman said Kelly's inability to com- municate had resulted in a lack of team spirit and togetherness. However, he has since said the situation is beginning to improve. "He (Kelly) is beginning to realize you just don't treat people like cattle or Ullman said. Leaf general manager Jim Gregory said Friday "he's a third party to it." "I don't see how com- menting on this recent thing is going to help he added. The North Stars will be without veteran Lou Nanne who has a broken right wrist and will be out of the lineup for an indefinite period. A club spokesman said he ap- parently suffered the injury at Philadelphia Thursday night as he attempted to break a fall. PHILADELPHIA 3 ATLANTA 2 Pint Period: 1 Atlanta Bennett 15 (Lysiak.

SPORT FANS I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW Here's an unusual fact Gary Davidson a few years ago created the World Hockey Associa- tion even though he had never seen a hockey game in his life That seems unbelievable, but it is true. Here's an interesting football question for you only one college foot- ball coach in history has ever gone the amazing total of 11 consecutive seasons without losing a game can you guess who it was? Answer is Gil Dobie who started his streak with two straight unbeaten seasons at North Dakota State in 1906 and 1907 and then moved to the University of Washington where his teams went nine straight years. 1908 through 1916. without losing a game1 Imagine coaching for 11 straight years and never losing a game. Has there ever been a heavy w'eight boxing champion of the world who was a left-hander? The answer is no. Oddly enough, all the heavyweight champions have been righties.
