Their surge from last in me Eastern Football Conference to Grey Cup champions in one sea- son carried them Canadian leam-of-the-year honors in a poll conducted by The Canadian Press. It was a (liUo-marks poll, as (lie majority of the 105 sports writers and broadcasters wiio voted also picked the Als and their accomplishments as the thrill, surprise and comeback of 1870. Only in the categories of odd- ity and disappointment did the Als fail to take first place. It was a tie in the disappoint- ment of 1970 category, victory ling to the showing of Toronto I Grey Cup game and (he Allan of the EFC and toj Cup-symbol of senior Canadian goi Argoi___ the fact that no Canadian team made the Stanley Cup playoffs. The oddity? Take your choice majority of voles was split between a defcnceman (Bobby Orr) winning the National Hockey League scoring title, Canadian teams missing the Stanley Cup playoffs, two third- place finishers meeting in the NUMBER ONE WINNERS Cliff Nowicki and his Med- icine Hat rink won the number one Sven Ericksen event and the Sid Lamb memorial as the annual felhbridge Curl- ing Club high school bonspiel came 1o an end Wednes- day.

Nowicki and Ins Medicine Hat rink were beaten in the fi- nal of the first event last year but came on with a vengeance this time around and captured ihe number one Sven Ericksen event and the Sid Lamb Mem- orial grand aggregate. The annual bonspiel attracted some 50 rinks from points in Alberta and British Columbia. Nowicki was hard pressed for his two titles. In the final of the number one event he edged Wayne Stickel of Vaux- lall 6-5 and had as bad a time with Barrel Hougen in the grand aggregate final winning 7-6. With Nowicki on his win- ning rink were Lyle Schlaht, Rick Pinder and Gary Marks. The new champion earned a berth in the final by downing Tom Mueller of Warner in the semi-finals while Stickel drop- ped Wayne Calvert of Brooks. Mueller and his mates are from Warner. Hougen, despite his setback in the grand aggregate final, won the number two Fred Quit- tenbaum event as he won out over Ken Foster of the host Lethbridge club 6-3. Hougen had ousted Janice Newlove of Pincher Creek in one semi-fi- nal match while Foster trim- med Robert Hart of Vauxhall. Bob Lyon of Barons won the number three Haig Clinic event with a 12-6 win over David Sevalrud of Bow Island. Lyon advanced after beating Norman Zmaef of Coleman while Seval- fud used Larry Kirkpatrick of Lethbridge as a stepping stone to the final. The number four John For- lest honors went to Bob Takasaki and his Picture Butte foursome. Takasaki and his rink stopped Len Mueller of Warner 9-7 in the final. In the semi- fina's Takasaki belted Terry Russell of Milk River while Mueller dumped Rob Hothe of Cardston.

Bowling scores hockey to a U is i t c d Slates Fivers. A distant second to the Als as team of the year was the Don Duguid rink of Winnipeg, Cana- dian and world curling champi- ons. Next, and well back, was the Canadian men's <100-metre medley relay team which look a' gold 'medal at the British lommomvrallh Games. Canadian NHL learns missing the playoffs won the runner-up spot in tile surprise category and oilier events that were close included Canada pulling out of world hockey, Harry Sinden quitting as coach of the Stanley Cup champions. Boston Bruins, Montreal getting the 1976 Olym- pic Games and AU coach Sam Etcheverry suspending t w a first-string plavers on the eve of the EFC playoffs. T h e 1 m a Fynn's third-place finish hi the 1.500 metres at the British Cominomvealih Games flung herself forward just as an opponent well considered in the thrill cate- gory, along with Bill Mahony winning three gold swimming mdeals. But the one event that came closest to tiie Als' Grey Cup triumph' hi thrills was the last- play field goal kicked by Larry Robinson of Calgary Stamped- ers to win the Western Confer- ence final against Saskatchewan and send the Stamps to the Grey Cup game. Some voters saw as the oddity of 1970 the fact that the annual football awards for outstanding individual performance, the Lit- tle Grey Cup and the Valuer Cup all went West, but the Grey Cup stayed in the East. Red CTQuinn winning consecu- tive Grey Cups with different clubs was mentioned; so was the fact mat a brother combina- and Phil Esposito of ihe Cist all-star team in the NHL. The Argos got a vote for presenting the game ball to Ed Harrington at mid-field and having to search tlirough the erowd for Harrington, who was sittbig out a one-game suspen- sion. More than one voted for the "ridiculous ties in the NHL" which saw Chi- cago Black Hawks pour six goals into Montreal Canadians' empty net as the Canadiens tried to score the points neces- sary to move into the playoffs. Ed McQuarters, plucking the ball out of the hands of Stamps' quarterback Jerry Keeling and scoring a touchdown for Saskat- chewan Roughriders in the sec- ond game of the WFC final, was not overlooked in the balloting. It was of this episode that Etcheverry said later to Stamps' coach Jim Duncan: "He pumped three times. I thought he was going to pump up a matter of fact he did, right out of your eye- balls." NUMBER FOUR WINNERS Bob Takasaki of Piduro Butte won the number four John Forrest event. The win- ners are, back row, left to right, skip Takasaki and third Grant Stauth. Front, left to right, second Jim Nayha and lead Randy Karren. _____________ soarec By GERRY SUTTON SASKATOON (CP) Bob Seagren of Los Angeles, 1968 Olympic pole vault champion, soared to success in a come- jack bid during the final mo- ments of the Saskatchewan In- door Games Wednesday night. Seagren, former world indoor and outdoor record holder who retired in June to take up act- ng, won the invitational pole ,'ault with a leap of 16 feet, eight inches. He had three at- tempts at 17-2 but came close only on the second try. Bruce Simpson of Toronto, the Canadian and 1970 British Com- monwealth record holder at 16- aVi, finished a surprising second with a jump of 15-8. For Seagren. 24, a University of Southern California graduate, it was a satisfying win. "I'd have to say I was satis- fied with the performance a 16-8 jump isn't bad consider- ing the circumstances I've been running all the time since I called it quits but not neces- sarily RECORD HOLDER FAILS World-record holder Jan John- Club from Long Beach.

I said when I came here that I would be either really good or really I was really bad." Another highlight of the meet was the invitational men's two- mile relay, easily won by the Pacific Coast Track and Ileld WINNIPEG (CP) Acadia University Axemen won the Golden Boy college basketball tournament here Wednesday night- by overpowering Mont- real's Loyola University War- riors 90-67 in the championship game, After a slow start the Wolf- wile, N.S. crew gradually gained momentum and finally tcok control of both backboards.
