Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Monday, Duccmbor 21, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 13 SUGAR RAY ROBINSON KINSMEN DINNER GUEST DeHeer explodes in juvenile play The Lethbridge Warriors had no problems in disposing two visiting Medicine Hat clubs in Southern Alberta Juvenile Hock- ey League action over the weekend. Salurday night the locals bounced the Medicine Hat Mc- Millan Wheelers 11-4 and con- tinued then- scoring spree Sun- day afternoon clobbering the Medicine Hat Huskies 16-1. In Saturday nights encounter the Warriors led by Ross Walker's and Jack DeHeer's three-goal performances were never in doubt of a victory as they maintained period scores of 3-1 and 5-2. Other Warrior marksmen were Larry Marchuk with two goals while Bob Turner, Nie Kristjanson and Ken Hammer- stedt added singles. For the Wheelers Rick Frieze popped in Ihree goals while teammate Ken Sen- managed a singleton. The Warriors continued Sun- day with their potent attack with Jack Delleer leading the way with five big goals against tiie Huskies. Miles Shaw, Bob Turner and Dwaync Glasier added to the lop-sided score with two goals each while Allan Marchuk, Neil Kristjanson, Ross Walker, Ken Hammerstedt, and Larry Mar- chuk notched a goal apiece. For the Huskies Reg Martens averted the shutout with a first period goal.

Singletons went to Jim Larson and Tom Wray. One of boxing's truly greats to visit Lcthbiidgc Sugar Ray Robinson headlines dinner The Lcthbridge Kinsmen Club has landed a sporting gem for their 18th annual Sportsman's Dinner at the Exhibition Pavilion Febru- ary G. Announcement was made today thai Sugar Ray Robin- son, considered by many of the experts the greatest fighter who ever lived, pound for pound, will be one- of the headlincrs at the affair. Robinson is the third guest announced for the dinner, joining master of ceremonies Ernie Afaganis and well- known American League um- pire Tom Gorman at the head table. A number of other celebrities from the sports world will be an- nounced in the days to come. Robinson, of course, needs absolutely no introduction. He is as famous for his ac- complishments in boxing as Willie Mays is to baseball, Johnny Longden to horse racing or, another former Kinsmen guest, Jesse Owens is to track and field. According to the record book, Robinson fought 202 times professionally, winning 109 bouts via the knockout route. He won the middleweight championship of the world five limes in a career that spanned 25 years. Between and 1851 he won 91 con- secutive fights and some of his battles rank as among the greatest lights of all lime. Fans will undoubtedly re- call his last fight with Jake LaMotta, who spoke at the Kinsmen dinner three years ago as well as his encount- ers with Carmen Basilio, still another former Kinsmen guest, Gene Fullmer, another Kinsmen guest of not so long ago, and Bobo Olson. S'ugar Ray was fighter of the year in 1951 and was ad- mitted to boxing's hall of fame in 1967. Robinson is now actively engaged in show business with movie and several tele- vision shows to his credit. Kinsmen officials are elated over acquiring Robin- son for the dinner. "We feel he's one of the biggesl names we've ever had and confi- dent that he will prove to be one of the biggest attrac- tions we've ever had in the history of the dinner." Tickets arc now on sale at Dover's Cigar Store in down- town Lcthbridge or they may be obtained from any mem- ber of the Kinsmen Club. A special door prize this year will include a trip to Van- couver for a National Hockey League game featuring the Canucks.

Al Sim- nons snored twice for Winni- peg and Gerry- Butler once. By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Punch Imlach, the sage of Buffalo Sabres, was rapped re- cently on the ground that his writing in a syndicated column might cause embarrassment to Toronto Maple Leafs. But after the weekend, Imlach might even consider re-editing the script he had penned ear- lier. His Buffalo club was stopped twice by the Leafs, 2-0 at Toronto Salurday and 4-2 in Buffalo Sunday. The victories extended Toron- to's winning streak to six, tbree at the expense of the punchless Sabres, and moved them to within two points of fourth-place Vancouver Canucks in the Na- tional Hockey League's East Di- vision. Boston Bruins and New York Rangers at the top of the East Division had double victories during the weekend while Chi- cago Black Hawks padded their lead in the West. The Bruins throttled West Di- vision opponents, winning 7-1 over S'c. Louis Blues Saturday and 7-2 against Minnesota North Stars Sunday as John McKenzie went on a five-goal scoring spree. Tlie Bruins' eight-game win streak is their longest in at least 20 years. The Rangers dumped Vancou- ver 5-1 Sunday al home after a 5-3 win against the North Stars Saturday in Bloomington, Minn.

Chicago nipped Pittsburgh 2-1 on third-period goals by Pit Martin and Bobby Hull to ex- tend their winning streak on home ice to 13 games and move nine points ahead of St. Louis Los Angeles Kings drubbed Montreal Canadiens 7-1 to snap their winless streak at 11 in an- other Sunday game. The Kings were held to a 2-2 tie by Philadelphia Saturday. Tuesday, New York visits Buffalo and Chicago is at Oak- land against the Golden Seals. NHL president Clarence Campbell took Imlach, Buffalo's I general manager and coach, to task recently for his journalistic efforts. Leaf president Stafford Smythe, whn fired Inilach Hi years ago, had complained that the Sabres' leader had under- mined Toronto players with his writings which appear in a To- ronto newspaper. SEES GOOD FINISH Earlier in the season, Imlach, noted during his 10 seasons with the Leafs as a great prophet, promised that his club would finish ahead of Toronto in the standings. The Leafs were making his forecast'look good. They floun- dered with Buffalo near or in the division cellar until their currenl six-game spree carried Ihem to within two points of Vancouver who, like Buffalo, are in the first NHL season. Dave Kcon, the Leafs' veteran centre and captain, scored the winner Saturday and the go-a- head goal Sunday as the Sabres, as Ihey oflen do, floundered in the latlcr stages, Jacques Plante registered his 7511) car- eer shutoul. in Saturday's game, turning aside 24 shots.

SCOKE TWO IvU'll unbeaten string on home ice to 1C, tallied three times in a SVi- minute stretch in the second pe- riod Sunday to break their game open. Pete Stemkowski, Ron Stc'ivart and Bob Nevin were the Ranger marksmen. The Rangers, with 47 points and two behind Boston in the East Division race, were nurs- ing only a 4-3 lead against Min- nesota Saturday night until Jean Ratcllc. who scored two earlier goals, fed Nevin in the slot for the insurance score. The Hicke brothers, Bill and Ernie, scored two each in Cali- fornia's barrage against De- troit's rookie goaltenders who have been pushed into the breach since a head injury to Hoy Edwards placed him on the sidelines for at least two weeks. Both McLeod and Rutherford got into Sunday's game, but McLeod absorbed Saturday night's Penguin barrage as Glen Bather and rookie Greg Polls scored two each. It was the most goals ever scored by a Pittsburgh club and while Pulford had lour assists. the biggest margin of victory since the team joined the NHL in 1SC7. The Kings' win over Montreal was sparked by Doug Robinson, Los Angeles had not beaten the Canadiens since Dec. 2, their first year in the league.
