Edmonton Attendance The Herald Sports HOWELL SCORES ONE OF HIS THREE GOALS Earn berth into Winter Games Native Sons impressive By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer One storybook finish was all the Lethbridge Native Son? needed over the weekend as they took three games handily to earn the right to represent Alberta in the Canada Winter Games hockey competitions. The Native Sons put on an awesome display of power before 1.780 fans at the Sportsplex Sunday night as they thumped Fairview Junior Dragons 11-4 in the championship game of a six-team Junior B playoff tournament. On Friday night, the locals had whipped Olds 8-3. and Howie Yanosik's club dumped Calgary Totems 4-1 in a Sunday afternoon semi-final. However, the Sons' other game was a different story as they needed a late comeback and an overtime period to beat Lloydminster Border Blazers 4-3. Aside from that one, however, the locals had a relatively easy time taking the title. "It was just an outstanding effort by the guys." commented coach Yanosik in the dressing room. "They're a great bunch of kids. I've never seen spirit and morale like this before." The spirit and morale was certainly evident Saturday night. That, of course, was when the storybook finish took place after two periods of lacklustre hockey and a standout performance by Lloydminster goalie Stew Weishaar almost knocked the locals out of the tournament. The Border Blazers gave the Native Sons a real lesson in backchecking as they skated to a 3-1 lead after two periods. Lethbridge couldn't do anything inside the blueiine with three Lloydminster forwards blocking all the passing lanes. in the third period. Yanosik's boys came out fired up. but Weishaar continued to stop everything thrown at him. He finished the game with 45 saves and was selected as the first star. said Yanosik. "I never thought we were out of it." "I knew if we just kept the pressure on, we would get a break, and one soft goal did it for us. After that, the kids really went to work." Weishaar made only one mistake, but it was a costly one as a weak shot by Dwayne Howell beat him at of the third period to make the score 3-2. That goal fired up the Native Sons, and they were all around the net the rest of the way, but it was not until the mark, with goaltender Gary Warner out of the Lethbridge net, that Howell tied up the game by lifting a rebound over a fallen Weishaar. At of the overtime period, Reg Osmond capped off the Native Sons' comeback when he took a pass from Albert Dumont and beat Weishaar from point blank range. Dumont had scored the Native Sons' first goal in the opening period, while Lloydminster got a pair of markers from Robin Gervais and a single from Roger Roberge. Lethbridge outshot the Blazers 45-23 and took just six of me 18 penalties handed out. After that close call, the locals had little trouble. They were forced to play the semi-final Sunday aiiorr.oon due to the fact that their goals for-and-against percentage was not as good as that of Fairview after two days of competition. Fairview had defeated Olds 7-2 Saturday afternoon, and that win, coupled with their 4-3 triumph over Calgary Friday gave them an 11-5 margin for a .687 percentage. The Native Sons had scored 12 goals and given up six for a percentage of .666. Calgary got the semi-final when they were upheld by the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association in a protest over their loss to Edmonton Mercurys Saturday. The Totems lost the game 6-5, but were awarded the decision by default when it was learned that Edmonton had used an unregistered player. In the championship final, the Native Sons exploded for five goals in the second period and another six in the third to run away with the contest after being shutout 1-0 in the opening 20 minutes. Dwayne Howell was the big gun for the locals, as he notched a hat trick. Singles came off the sticks of Mark and Glen Scheibner, Ken Klinkhammer, Gino Guzzi, Reg Osmond. Joe Meli, Greg Kveder, and Vic Stasiuk Jr. Mark Moskalyk had two goals for Fairview, while Paul Moskalyk and Neil Hart added singles. Howell. selected the game's first star by Lethbridge Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield, started things off at the 19 second mark of the middle period, and from there on, it was all Native Sons. The locals had built up a 5-1 lead before Mark Moskalyk got his second marker just before the period ended. They picked up where they left off in the third period as well, scoring three goals before Fairview came back with their final two counters, one of them a penalty shot by Hart. Klinkhammer and Guzzi each had three assists to go along with their goals, and were chosen second and third stars respectively. As in the previous three games, the Sons got stellar netminding from Gary Warner, who turned aside 32 Fairview shots. "Gary was just outstanding all the commented Yanosik after the game. "He really played well." "But then, so did everyone. The great part about this club is that every game, someone different comes up big. We have exceptional balance." Yanosik was able to call on that balance in the final game when he made up a fourth line of reserves Rod Pocza and Vic Stasiuk. centred by utility man supreme Gino Guzzi. The trio took a regular turn and did an outstanding job. "I went with four lines because I thought we might be said Yanosik. "After all, it was our third game in 24 hours." Greg Kveder was the hero against the Totems in the semi-final. He notched a pair of goals and was picked as the game's first star for his efforts. A tireless worker in the corners, the little left winger had consistently set up his linemates beautifully in front of the net during the tournament. And both his goals came after he did just that. In the first period, he laid the puck on Ron Simmons' stick in front, and then swept in to bang home the rebound and open the scoring. His second goal came on a similar play after setting up Mark Scheibner. Glen Scheibner and brother Mark had the other Native Son goals as the locals skated to period leads of 2-0 and 2-1 before pulling away in the final frame for the 4-1 triumph. After the final game, all of the Native Sons were presented with individual trophies, and captain Joe Meli accepted the Coca Cola trophy from AAHA chairman Ray Marsh for winning the tournament. The victory, of course, sends the club into the Can- ada Winter Games February 11-23 as Alberta's representative in the national competition. "It's a big thrill for said Yanosik. "And we're really looking forward to representing our province in February." LETHBRIDGE 11 FAIRVIEW 4 First Period: 1. Fairview. Moskalyk (Tomko. Urness) 5'28 Penalty Tomko F Second Period: 2.

TYPEWRITERS Canada, Soviets leading the way WINNIPEG and the Soviet Union came up with easy victories in world junior tournament play during the weekend. Canada downed Sweden 10-2 Saturday and the Soviets beat Czechoslovakia 5-1 Sunday. Finland and Czechoslovakia had battled to a 1-1 tie in Brandon Saturday. Canada meets Finland while the United States meets Swe- den, both winless in their opening games, in Fargo, N.D., tonight. Two European coaches said following weekend action that Canada has an excellent chance of winning the round- robin championship, won last year by the Soviet Union. "I was asked last year and I said. Canada had little chance of beating the Sweden coach Lennart Sker- daker said after his club was defeated by the Western Canada Hockey League players. "But Canada this year has a good chance to beat them." Miroslav Kubera of Czech- oslovakia, whose team lost to the Soviets Sunday and dropped two exhibition games to Canada prior to the tour- nament, said: "Yes, I think Canada will beat the Soviets in this tournament."
