H master charge ENGLISH SCOTCH WOOLLEN 'suiting the man-of-the-world' Locals score five power play goals Broncos humble Centennials By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The Lethbndge Broncos, led by the superb play of Ron Delorme, skated to a 7-2 win over the Calgary Centennials Box- ing Day afternoon in a Western Canada Hockey League contest at the Sportsplex Delorme scored one goal but added four assists, as well as playing a strong game both ways He was the key to the Bronco power play unit and was also a mainstay on the Bronco penalty killing brigade "There was no doubt that Ron was the first star of the said a pleased Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield "Ron played real well, as did Doug Gillespie and Alec Tidey Ingarfield was extremely happy with his club, particularly since two of the Bronco stars, Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutter, are in Winnipeg playing with the Western Canada League All- Stars in the world junior tournament "It was a solid team he said "Our forwards were coming back and helping out the defence, which makes it a lot easier And our boys were putting on the pressure at the Calgary end The Broncos overwhelmed Calgary goalkeeper Brian Hepp, firing 46 shots at him The Centennials could only manage half that number on Broncos' Rollie Boutin Five of the seven Lethbndge goals came off power play ef- forts, two of them coming while the Broncos enjoyed a two man advantage Besides Delorme's goal, the Broncos received two goals each from Doug Gillespie and Alec Tidey Stan Jensen and Jerry Bancks cashed in with single efforts Calgary's two goals came from Greg Neeld and Glen Wylie Jensen opened the scoring for the Broncos with only 33 seconds gone in the game as he connected with a slap shot from outside the Calgary bluelme that never left the ice Tidey picked up his first marker when the locals had a two- man advantage with a booming drive from the slot Delorme rounded out the scoring in the first period as his ice-level drive from the point eluded Hepp Tidey had scored what looked like the third Lethbndge goal in the opening stanza but it was disallowed due to a delayed penalty call on the Broncos' Gary Wagner Doug Gillespie scored his first goal at the 1 16 mark of the second period with another shot from the point that stayed on the ice It was also a power play goal Calgary finally hit the scoresheet when Greg Neeld, the only Calgary Centennial that played consistently well I throughout the game, scored a power play goal of his own with Bronco Don Lutz in the penalty box That made it 4-1 Tidey scored his second consecutive goal while the Broncos enjoyed a two-man advantage after finishing off a fine passing play from Delorme Bancks rounded out the scoring in the second frame as he tipped in a pass out from behind the Centennial net and ran the score to 6-1 Gillespie's second goal was an unassisted effort on yet another power play effort with yet another shot that just skidd- ed along the ice Wyhe's goal, from out of a mass of players in front of the Bronco net, was the last hurrah for the Centennials Four of the Bronco's goals slid past Hepp along the ice as the Calgary goalie seemed baffled in his attempts to handle them The teams shared a total of 20 penalties, 10 apiece, but the Broncos were the ones that were able to capitalize on their op- portunities The penalty killing of Stan Jensen and Ron Delorme had the Calgary power play buffaloed LOOSE PUCKS Calgary general manager Scotty Munroe was behind the bench for the third period Centennial coach Eric Sutcliff handled the club m the first two frames the three stars of the game were Delorme, Tidey and Gillespie a total of fans were on hand for the holiday afternoon contest the game was delayed 15 minutes in starting when Calgary's Kirk Fyffe broke the glass at the Calgary end in the warm-up prior to the game his booming shot sent chunks of glass flying over the ice the crowd was extremely quiet at times during the game Alec Tidey picked up a penalty for using an illegal stick apparently it had too much of a curve in the blade Bronco's Gary Wagner and Centennials Mike Fynn picked up the only majors of the game for fighting Wagner started strong but it would be safe to concede that Fynn added the finishing touches to the fight Stan Jensen played one of his better games, particularly in the penalty killing role Centennials were playing without Larry Hendnck and Rick Hodgson who are also competing in the world junior tourney at Winnipeg The locals proved that they would win even without the likes of Trottier and Sutter it will be a big boost tor players like Delorme and Jensen who often labor in the shadows of the two missing Broncos BRONCOS 7 CALGARY 2 period 1 Lethbndge Jensen (Tidey Delorme) 0 33 2 Lethbndge Tidey (Bancks
