Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 23, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD- HOWIE YANOSIK GARY WARNER WCHL summaries I l KEN KLINKHAMMER MARK SCHEIBNER Native Sons aim at representing Alberta By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer You have to wonder just what is going through the minds of five coaches who will be bringing their Junior B hockey teams to Lethbndge this week All five coaches are in the same predicament in order to have their team represent Alberta in the Canada Winter Games in Lethbndge February 11- 23, they must find a way to get past the host Lethbndge Y's Native Sons in a three-day tournament this weekend Edmonton Mercurys, Calgary Southwest Totems, and teams from Olds Lloydmmster and Peace River all have to be somewhat apprehensive as they go into the Alberta playoff tournament at the Sportsplex December 27 28 and 29 The Native Sons are presently cruising along in first place of the Central Alberta Junior Hockey League with a 14-1 record, and have to rate as one of the pre- tournament favorites The locals have outscored their op- ponents 142-44 in league play to date, and their only loss was in their fourth game when the Hanna Ambassadors eked out a 5-4 win Still their impressive record is no guarantee of victory in the upcoming tour- nament as coach Howie Yanosik readily admits "These other clubs will be tough." he says I don't know too much about them, but I understand the Edmonton Mercurys in particular are exceptionally strong The Mercurvs come from a very balanc- ed Capital Junior Hockey League in the north a factor which can only help the Ed- monton club, according to Yanosik "It s a lot easier to keep up your com- petitive edge if somebody is testing you every game The only other team that the Native Sons know anything about is Olds, present- ly in second place behind the Sons in the CAJHL The locals whipped Olds 7-1 in their only meeting to date Despite his worries about the Mercurys, Yanosik rates his club's chances as ex- cellent for the six-team tournament "I think we've got a real good chance "The kids are really up for it, and if desire has anything to do with the out- come, we've got it won Gary Warner will probably get the nod as the starting goaltender for the Native Sons He has been exceptionally steady all season for the locals "I would have no qualms about putting in Gary Clark either but he just turned 15 years old. and Warner's experience makes him very stable Defence was Yanosik s big worry before the season started but his bluelmers have been the surprise of the club in the first half of the season Presently he has hard-hitting Dennis Halt paired with Randy Lowe, and will probably stick newcomer Dave Hogan alongside veteran Ken Khnkhammer Yanosik can also call on Gordie Gejdos, Darrel Osmond, or Vic Stasiuk Jr for defensive help The Native Sons just recently picked up Hogan from Taber Golden Suns, and Yanosik calls him "a big asset "He's excellent defensively as are Halt and Lowe I'm really pleased with the way all of our defencemen have come along particularly Randy Lowe He has to rate as one of the best defensive defencemen in the league And of course the Sons have their offensive backhner in Khnkhammer His outstanding shot and work on the power play have earned him a tie for the club's scoring lead with 33 points Yanosik has three forward lines pretty well set now after a little juggling early in the season Joe Meli who missed six games due to an international judo tournament and an injured wrist centres a veteran line which includes leftwmger Reg Osmond and nghtwmger Albert Dumont Scoring leader Mark Scheibner has Ron Simmons on his right, and either Rod Pocza or Greg Kveder on the left, and brother Glen Scheibner centers for Dwayne Howell and Terry Roberts The other forward is Gino Guzzi, who plays anywhere and usually picks up more ice time than the regular forwards "Gino helps us so much in different positions that I don't put him on one line He kills penalties for us and works on the power play and I m very pleased with his work All three of the Native Sons' lines are scoring well says Yanosik "As a matter of fact, our forwards are so well-balanced that we have no one among the top scorers in the league, despite our record Evidence for the balance on the Native Sons' frontline can be seen in the statistics The Glen Scheibner line has 74 scoring points to lead the team, but brother Mark s unit is right behind with 73 and the Meli trio has 70 "I m particularly pleased with Mark and Glen and Dwayne Howell has played very well for us but basically all the forwards are doing their jobs Yanosik is not afraid to boast that "if (goaltender) Warner and the defence hold up like thev have been doing we know we'll get the goals one way or another The tournament kicks off Friday with three games and continues Saturday with three more contests before a pair of en- counters wraps things up on Sunday The winner, of course, goes on to represent the province in the Winter Games At 1 p m Friday, the Edmonton Mer- curys face Lloydmmster while Peace River and Calgary take to the Sportsplex ice at four The first day of action wraps up with an 8pm contest in which the Native Sons get their first test against Olds Yanosik has had his club on Sportsplex ice for four practices and one game already and has another practice schedul- ed for Boxing Day after the Bronco game with Calgary Centennials "The big ice surface seems to help says the Sons' mentor. "The one game we played there, the boys were really skating The tournament, which is expected to incur costs of is sponsored by the Lethbndge Athletic Association, and has been subsidized by Krahn Homes and Astro Realty to the tune of apiece The extra is expected to come from gate receipts SCORING LEADERS M Scheibner Klinkhammer G Scheibner Dumont R Pocza Roberts Howell Guzzi Hatt Meli R Osmond Simmons Kveder Lowe D Osmond Hogan Warner Clark GOALKEEPERS G A Pts. 20 13 33 16 17 33 17 12 29 17 12 29 7 17 24 10 12 22 B 14 22 11 10 21 7 14 21 7 14 21 15 20 5 16 9 13 9 13 4 6 2 5 4 4 GP GA Avg 21 2 80 25 3 33 Oakland upsets Miami 28-26 Brandon contest THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Somehow it won't seem the same without Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl The Dolphins who have been in the National Football League s Super Bowl cham- pionship the last three years in a row and won the last two, were eliminated 28-26 Satur- day by Oakland Raiders And there are three other pretenders to the throne, too Pittsburgh Steelers, who whipped Buffalo Bills 32-14, Minnesota Vikings who beat St Louis Cardinals 30-14, and Los Angeles Rams, who defeated Washington Redskins 19-10 Miami coach Don Shula was philosphical after his dreams ot a fourth straight trip to the Super Bowl, and perhaps a third straight championship, died under the passing attack of Ken Stabler The Oakland quarterback's fourth touchdown pass of the eight-yarder to Clarence Davis with 26 seconds to the Raiders past the Dolphins Saturday and into the American Conference title game against Pittsburgh When you lose like that, you know winning just wasn't meant to said Shula "Your dreams go down the drain They needed a touchdown and they got it I think it is the toughest loss ,.....____ love be with you.
