Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta rnaajr, i nc LEinDmisuc ntnMi-u Doug's suffers 81-80 loss Raymond impressive with two wins PHIL TOLLESTRUP CANS TWO OF HIS 64 POINT TOTAL IN TWO GAMES By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The two pre-tournament favorites at the 23rd annual Christmas Basketball Tourna- ment at the Civic Sports Centre in Lethbridge were reduced to one after Thurs- day's opening day action. Raymond still remains firmly entrenched as the team to beat after impressive vic- tories over the Western All- Stars 106-75 and Makoi Homes 108-66. Meanwhile Doug's of Lethbridge slipped from the co-favorite role after coming up with a victory over Calgary LDS 101-74 but dropping a thrilling game 81-80 to Rosca Fix's of Calgary. Doug's dropped into the B section of the tourney and will need four consecutive wins in today's play in order to come up with the championship. Raymond, led by the Tollestrup family, Wally, Tim and Phil, scored run-away vic- tories in both their games. In their first game at 1 p.m. Wal- ly Tollestrup led the way with 27 points but in the evening game at 9, Phil Tollestrup put on a one man show, canning 40 points. Makoi Homes managed to stay with Raymond through the first 10 minutes, but after that it was all Raymond as Phil Tollestrup started hitting from every angle. Raymond slowly kept adding to their lead until they enjoyed a 42 point bulge at the end of the game. Besides the 40 points he picked up against Makoi, Phil also picked up 24 against the All-Stars for a staggering total of 64 points in two games. Wally Tollestrup had 19 in the evening game to go with his 27 point outing in the after- noon. Gary Williams and Peter Hague both added 16 points to Raymond's total over Makoi. Makoi, trailing 53-36 at the half, got 16 points from Marty Allred and 13 from Vern Jubber. In the All-Star-Raymond contest, besides Phil and Wally, Gary Williams got into the scoring act with 22 points and Tim Tollestrup added another 18. Raymond led 60-33 at the half over the All-Stars, who received 13 points from Bill Lanthop and 12 from Jim Myer. Doug's only win came in the opening contest of the tourna- ment as they swamped the Calgary LDS team 101-74. Alec Dudas was the big man for Doug's with 22 points while Curtis Travis chipped in with 18. Jack Chymboryk add- ed another 14 for the locals. Two men, Dan Walburger and Doug Hirsche, each hooped 18 points for Calgary. In the Doug's-Rosca Pix's match, the locals saw a 12 point lead disappear with only eight minutes remaining in the game, to drop an exciting 81-80 decision. The Pix's, never in the lead until the mark of the contest, were aided by some fine clutch shooting by Dick Vanderstam and Clark Sloan, and some questionable fouls. Vanderstam hooped 17 points for the winners and Sloan 16. Vanderstam picked up 18 of his points in the last eight minutes of play. Dave Preus, an addition to Doug's from the LCC Kodiaks, was the big man for the losers. He was a tower of strength under the boards and added 32 points to Doug's total. Curt Wolsey was responsible for 16 more points. Makoi Homes downed Calgary Cascades 108-89 in a game at Makoi, who led 59-54 at the half, took complete control of the game in the second stanza aided by Larry Bates and his 20 points. A former Lethbridgeite, Tom Sindlinger, was high man for Cascades with 31 points. Medicine Hat Community College became the first team to be eliminated from play as they dropped two games, one an 85-64 loss to Rosca Pix's and the other a 94-76 verdict to Calgary LDS. The Medicine Hat squad, made a game of it in the first half with the LDS team, leading 46-44 at the half. But in the second 20 minutes they turned it on and left the 'Hat club in their dust. Doug Hirsche had 21 for the LDS and Randy Milner ac- counted for 16 more points. Martin Stanberry hooped 22 in a losing cause for the 'Hat. Pix's led the Medicine Hat club 41-28 at half time and received 28 points from Clarence Amulung. Bill Holden's 18 points were tops for the 'Hat. REBOUNDS the Civic Centre was close to its 750 capacity for the two evening games crowds varied throughout the day from half full to nearly full Makoi Homes and Rosca Pix's sur- prised many of the teams with their fine play Raymond played their 9 p.m. game without Tim Tollestrup all games were played under the international rules one rule unique to the inter- CAN SMOKING AFFECT SEX?
