Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, December 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Rangers' GAG line back in operation By THE CANADIAN PRESS There has been one change in the cast, but New York Rangers' GAG line is back in production. With Steve Vickers handling Vic Hadfield's old chores, the Ranger line produced five goals in a 9-5 upset of Buffalo Sabres in a National Hockey League game Friday night. Ranger followers named the Hadfield-Jean Ratelle-Rod Gilbert combination the Goal- A Game line several years ago, when it was one of the top-scoring units in the league. Ranger coach Emile Fran- cis broke up the old combina- tion this summer, trading Hadfield, who had a poor season, to Pittsburgh Penguins. That left a vacancy which never really was filled until Francis moved Vickers into Hadfield's old job 12 games ago. In Friday's game, the new unit added seven assists to its five goals to bring its five- game scoring totals to 26 goals and 39 assists for 65 points. Vickers and Gilbert each had a pair of goals for the Rangers and Ratelle adding a single goal. Gilbert's goal late in the first period put the Rangers in front to stay. Friday's goals gave Vickers WCHL summaries MEDICINE HAT 5 REGINA 3 First period 1 Regina, Keil (Callander. Regina, Faulkner (Tudor) 3 Medicine Hat. Hill (Murdoch) 18.36. Penalties Carroll MH 4-53.

In other games, Montreal Canadiens whipped Detroit Red Wings 7-1 and California Golden Seals whipped Boston Bruins 5-2. Chicago Cougars didn't play any better for new owner Pat Stapleton Friday night then they did when he was only a player and coach. Hours after a group headed by Stapleton and lawyer Jeff Rosen took over the financial- ly troubled Cougars, they lost 4-2 to the Toros in a World Hockey Association game at Toronto. WHA president Dennis Mur- phy said the group, which also includes Cougar players Ralph Backstrom and Dave Dryden, had acquired the team from Jordan and Walter Kaiser. Goals by Bob Leduc, Tom Simpson and Paul Henderson gave the Toros a 3-0 lead in the second period. Frank Mahovlich added another in the last minute of the game. Serge Bernier extended his own WHA record by scoring in his llth consecutive game for the losing Nordiques. In other games, Cleveland Crusaders edged Quebec Nor- diques 4-3, St. Paul Saints stopped New England Whalers 6-3 and Indianapolis Racers tied Vancouver Blazers 1-1. N.Y.

The Native Sons delighted 800 Lethbridge hockey fans when they broke open a 1-1 deadlock after one period and skated to a 6-3 advantage after 40 minutes before sewing it up in the final frame. Earlier in the first day of the six-team tournament, Lloydminster Border Blazers surprised Edmonton Waterloo Mercurys 3-2, and Fairview Junior Dragons edged Calgary's Davidson Enman Totems 4-3. The format for today's second day of action was decided by a complicated-goals for-and- against percentage. Calgary was to take on Edmonton this afternoon at one. while Olds and Fairview were scheduled to take the ice at 4 p.m. Tonight at 8 p m., the Native Sons face-off against Lloydminster, with the winner advancing to a 7 p m. Sunday night final. Albert Dumont was a ball of fire for the Native Sons all evening, and he was the one who got the locals going after a close first period. Dumont, who was selected as the game's first star, picked up a pass from Reg Osmond behind the Olds net, and snuck out front to tuck it behind Cascaders' goaltender Kevin Topping at the mark of the second period Five minutes later, he combined with linemates Joe Meli and Osmond on a beautiful three-way passing play to give the Sons a 3-1 margin. Ron Simmons also had a pair of goals for the locals, while singles came off the sticks of Terry Roberts. Gino Guzzi. Dwayne Howell. and Glen Scheibner. Larry Richardson, Lloyd Ulry. and Len Hopkins scored for Olds "We were a little sluggish in the first period." commented a happy coach Howie Yanosik after the game "But once we started passing the puck and bouncing guys around, we were okay The Native Sons had started fast in the first period, hemming Olds in their own end with a solid display of forechecking. Simmons, who was a tower of strength in the corners, opened the scoring at the mark when he picked up a pass in the circle, and beat Topping with a pretty backhand. However, the Cascaders came right back when lanky Larry Richardson finished off a three-on-two break by sweeping around the Native Son defence and beating Lethbridge netminder Gary Warner over the shoulder. From that point. Olds carried the play to the Native Sons the rest of the period. Only the steady play of Warner in the net and some good work, by Dennis Hatt on the blueline held the score at 1-1. Hatt wound up as the game's second star, and Warner was praised by Yanosik for his fine play. The third star went to Richardson of Olds, who was brilliant throughout the game although he could notch only the one goal. Shortly after Dumont got the locals going. Terry Roberts made it 4-1 with a picture goal when he took the puck all the way from his own blueline and slipped it through Topping's legs with a one-handed backhand. Olds came back to narrow the gap to 4-3 with goals by Ulry and Hopkins, but Greg Kveder set up Simmons' second goal beautifully in front of, the net, and then Gino Guzzi drove a bullet past Topping from the left point to make it 6-3 by period's end. Howell and Glen Scheibner scored the only goals in a close-checking third period. The Native Sons outshot Olds 33-28 over the 60 minutes. Yanosik is optimistic about his club's chances after the win Friday. "Olds is a tough club, and now if we can get by Lloydminster tonight, we can sit and wait while two teams battle it out in the one o'clock game Sunday." "We're in good shape now." Three power-play goals lifted Lloydminster to a surprise win over the co-favorite Edmonton Mercury team earlier in the day. Roland Gervais banged in a rebound late in the first period and slipped in another from the goalmouth at the 15 second mark of the second to give the Blazers a 2-1 lead, and Rick Weinhandl's power-play goal at of the second period proved to be the winner after Edmonton had tied it up 2-2 Perry Whon and Claude Warwick had the Edmonton goals Lloydminster outshot Edmonton 30-23 and took seven of the 16 penalties handed out, including one game misconduct. Paul Moskalyk slapped in a rebound in front of the net with just a minute and 42 seconds remaining to give Fairview their 4-3 win over Calgary Totems. Fairview had taken a 1-0 lead after one period and the game was tied 1-1 after two before the club's alternated goals in a thrilling final frame Randy Galbreath. Dave Shmyr. and Neil Hart had the other goals for Fairview while Bill Sandalack with two. and Kim Halworth scored for Calgary. Calgary outshot Fairview 33-25 but ran up against hot goaltending by Gary Halvorson. who was selected the game's first star for his efforts. The winner of tonight's game between Lethbridge and Lloydminster automatically advances to the championship final Sunday at seven in the Sportsplex. Opposition will be provided by the winner of Sunday's 1 p m game, which will feature the other two clubs with the best goals for-and- against percentage after Saturday's games. The winner of the tournament, of course, will represent Alberta in the Canada Winter Games in Lethbridge February 11-23. 1975 ICE CHIPS Little Dumont was outstanding last night despite his size, he threw two of the best body checks of the day Mayor Andy Anderson was one of those on hand, along with representatives of tournament sponsors Krahn Homes and Astro Realty, for the opening ceremonies before the final game over 1.400 fans took in the first-day action but it doesn't look like there is anyone in the huge Sportsplex Edmonton was expected to be one of the tournament's toughest teams, so their loss to Lloydminster was a real surprise they just made too many mistakes inside their own blueline, and penalties hurt them as well Joe Meli had numerous chances to put the puck in the net for the Native Sons, but he just couldn't find the mark once the Native Sons started passing the puck in the second period, the big ice surface was a big plus for them Yanosik had praise for both Hatt and newcomer Dave Hougen on the blueline. Raymond Comets take opener at own tourney Two Southern Alberta teams took victories, but the other two went down to defeat as the first round of the annual Raymond Sugar Bowl basketball tournament got under way Friday. The host Raymond Comets got 16 points from Robert Heggie as they dumped Regina Luther Lions 54-40 to advance to the semi-finals Marty Radoatz had 13 points for the Regina club. And the Cardston Cougars advanced with a 57-39 triumph over Calgary's William Aberhardt Trojans. Don Yuill shone for the Cougars with 27 points while Mark Jorgenson trimmed 16 in a losing cause. However. Winston Churchill Bulldogs and Magralh Zeniths went down to defeat in other first round action. Vincent Massey got 25 points from Fred Zeiler as they edged the Bulldogs 50-40 in the tournament's opening game Perry Mirkovich led the Lethbridge team with 18 points John Diefeubaker of Calgary won the final game of the night when they nipped Magrath 56-52 behind the 13- point performance of Ceric Orton. Don Mehew was top gun for the Zeniths with nine points Action continues throughout the day today with the final game, to decide the tournament champion, slated for 8-30 p.m. The final will be preceeded by a game at 7 p.m (jgottman TRANSMISSION INTERNATIONAL U.S. and Canada COAST TO COAST PREVENT TRANSMISSION TROUBLE with a Guarantee Against Mechanical Failure for 6 Months or Miles Road Test Drain Refill Fluid Remove Pin Visual Inspection Adjust Binds Linkage New Pan Gasket Clean Sump Screen Condition Permuting 45 Includes NEW FLUID 329-3242 13113th Street North Warriors win one, lose one The Lethbridge Warriors are currently in Drumheller competing in a juvenile hockey tournament.

Calgary, Chiefs tie 9-9 By The Canadian Press Leftwinger Danny McLean went on a scoring spree Fri- day night for last-place Calgary Centennials but the team still had to settle for a 9- 9 tie with Kamloops Chiefs in Western Canada Hockey- League action.
