night earned the Canadian team a 2- 1 victory over Finland and lifted the Canadians into sole possession of first place in the six-team world junior hockey tournament 'It's been a long time since I ve seen two junior hockey clubs put on a show like said Canadian coach Jackie McLeod after the game, easi- ly the best of the round-robin tournament so far Both clubs hit hard skated and passed well and the goaltendmg was sensational In Monday night's other game, Sweden whipped the United States 7-3 and now has two points Finland and Czechoslovakia have one point each and the United States has no points after two games Tonight, the US meets the Soviet Union at Minneapolis, while the other teams in the tournament take a rest The Canadian team com- onsed of players from the Western Canada Hockey League is unbeaten in three games for six points, two better than the Soviet Union McMullin a member of the WCHL Brandon Wheat Kings, scored at 13 25 of the third pe- riod lifting a rebound over Finnish goaltender Marcus Mattsson Mark Davidson scored with Canada shorthanded in the second period and Matti Hagman scored on a second-period power play for Finland The game was rough, espe dally in the first period when both clubs were often guilty of illegal use of the stick But most of the chippy play ended after a fight midway through the period and thereafter fol- lowed simple hard hitting, good skating and superlative goaltendmg by Doug Soetaert of Canada and Mattsson That was the kind of game we expected from Finland, McLeod said after the game Trevino fined MELBOURNE (AP) American golfer Lee Trevino paid a fine Monday to the Professional Golfers Association with one day to spare The fine was imposed by the association s tournament committee after the Chrysler golf tournament at Royal Melbourne last month for unprofessional conduct" During the tournament, Trevino was critical of association president Peter Thompson, and on the final day attacked the Royal Melbourne course They are as physical and check as well or better than any other club here Soetaert kicked out 31 shots, including two excellent stops in the final minute Mattsson, a 17-year-old third-stringer brought to the tournament only after Finland s top junior goaltender became ill, handl- ed 44 shots and had the Cana- dian players and the fans buzzing over his play On the play that led to the winning goal, Blair Davidson, who set up both Canadian goals, swept down the right Chiefs held on to edge Czechs KAMLOOPS, B C (CP) Kamloops Chiefs scored three goals in less than six minutes in the first period and withstood a third period rally to edge Czechoslovakia Olympics 5-4 Monday in International exhibition hockey before fans The Chiefs, a Western Cai.ada Hockey League team, were bolstered by three players from New Westminster Bruins of the WCHL and three from Langley Lords of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League The team lost several players from the lineup because of injuries suffered in a bus crash Sunday Allan Young, Neil Lyseng, Kelly Secord, Mai Zmger and Dave Hatheway scored for Kamloops Vincent Lukac led the Czechs with two goals and an assist and Vaclav Hone and Pavel Richter added the others The Chiefs struck early in the game with Young slipping a shot past Czech goalie Miroslav Krasa after being hooked by an Olympic defenceman only 20 seconds into the game Lyseng struck at 3 34 and Secord, one of the players from New Westminster, at 5 15 to give the Chiefs a commanding edge Kamloops goalie Mark Earp who played the first half of the game, came up with several brilliant saves The best was a glove save on a whistling bluehne drive by Jan Zajicek midway through the first period The only goal he gave up was Hone's early in the second period, after Zmger had given Chiefs a 4-0 lead on a power play goal Lukac scored by evading a Chief defender at the bluehne, skating in all alone on goalie Mike Pnestner and lifting the puck to the top left corner Hatheway got the goal back with less than one minute remaining in the second period and Krasa kept the Chiefs from adding another goal when he foiled Brad Gassoff on a short handed breakaway 30 seconds later Czechs stormed back early in the third period with Lukac scoring at 1 23 as a penalized Chiefs' player stepped back onto the ice Richter narrowed the margin to one goal 27 seconds later but Chiefs held a powerful Czech squad off the rest of the way KAMLOOPS 5, CZECHO- SLOVAKIA 4 First Period 1 Kamloops Young (Kerr Melrose) 0 20 2 Kamloops Lyseng (Kerr) 334 3 Kamloops Secord (Dyer Shinske) 5 15

Hamilton Fmcups 5-4 Satur- day side and around the defence, a play he says is routine in the WCHL It was natural to carry it down the wing and let the centre go down the middle The defence was backing up but I thought 1 could get around them and in front enough for a shot That's how we always play in our league The Canadians had a first period goal disallowed when the referee and goal judge rul- ed time had expired The puck went into the net with one sec ond on the clock, but by the time the goal judge pushed the button time had run out However, the red light went on for a second before it was replaced by the green light and arena officials said that happens when the red light is on and time then runs out At Fargo, N D Emil Mes- zaros scored four times to pace Sweden to victory before 1 350
