Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 15 Curtain rings down at Christchurch Think hoop In an almost hypnotic state, Greg Hess of the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks, looks at the basketball Friday. It must have worked as Hess scored 27 points to lead the way for the locals.

Phone 327-3221 CLOSED MONDAY Men's Basketball League pennant title. Friday night the Kodiaks continued their surge for the top of the league pedestal by crushing the visiting Camrose Lutheran College Vikings 127- 84 at the LCC gym. The victory was the fifth in six starts for the Kodiaks, who have suffered their only loss to the Mount Royal College Cougars earlier in the season. With the addition of four players during the second semester, the Kodiaks seem invincible and have shown this by defeating every opponent by at least 20 points in their last five outings. Gary Williams. Kendon Eakett, Jerry Shockley and Greg Hess are the four new additions and have given the Kodiaks the spark they lacked earlier in the year. Hess, who joined the Kodiaks after toiling with a college club in Pocatello, Idaho, at the start of the season, was the big sparkplug last night as he hooped 27 points. Williams followed right behind with a 25-point outing while Robin Hansen chipped in with 16. Gary Relling was outstanding in a losing cause as he broke loose for 33 points for the Vikings, who also received a 19-point game from G. Olsen. In the statistical department, the Kodiaks shot 47 per cent from the field and 60 per cent from the foul line while the Vikings hooped 34 per cent of their tries from the outside and 61 per cent from the free throw line. Meanwhile the Cararose Vikettes gave the visitors a split 'dflririg the evening's entertainment as they defeated the LCC Kodiettes 59-53 in an Alberta College Athletic Conference Women's Basketball League encounter. Mona Knudslien paced the visitors with 19 points -while teammate Cookie Onsky aided in the win with 14. Shirley Yuill was a standout for the locals with 23 points and Jan Paton chipped in with 12. Both clubs shot 27 per cent from the field and 60 per cent from the foul line. Stamps ink top prospect CALGARY (CP) Calgary Stampeders of the Westertn Football Conference announc- ed today the signing of import running back Don "Wham" Willingham, 22 of Peoria, 111. Considered one of the top 10 running backs as far as National Football League pro prospects were concerned, Willingham would have been drafted by the NFL in either the third or fourth round had he not been signed by Calgary prior to the draft, held this week, head coach Jim Wood said. Willingham, five feet inches and 200 pounds, had an outstanding season last year while attending the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, carrying the football 208 times for 1.063 yards, an average of 5.1 yards per carry. Canadians finish with 25 golds By GORDON GRANT Genera) Sports Editor CHRISTCHURCH, N.Z. (CP) A 20-year-old army technician from the foothills of Mount Kilamanjaro thwarted Ben Jipcho's bid to become a triple gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games today and broke a world record in the process. Filbert Bayi of Tanzania, setting the pace from the opening gun, won the metres in three minutes 32.2 seconds, nine-tenths of a second faster than the world mark set in 1967 by Jim Ryun of the United States. John Walker of New Zealand surpassed the old record by three-tenths of a second as he took the silver medal and Jipcho, the Kenyan who had won the steeplechase and metres, just missed it with a thirdplace time of It was the third world record to fall in the nine-day Games. The others were broken in the Games pool by backstroker Wendy Cook of Vancouver and freestyler Steve Holland of Australia. Glenda Reiser of Ottawa, also setting her own pace, was a comfortable winner in the women's metres, main- taining the Canadian record of winning at least one gold medal on every day of competition. It brought the Canadian total to 25 golds, five more than they had won at any previous Games and an improvement of seven over their showing at Edinburgh in 1970- 'Australia, with victories in the men's and women's 400- metre relays and the cycling road race, had 29 and England finished with 28 on the strength of four last-day triumphs. In the unofficial point stand- ings, based on a 10-5-4-3-2-1 count for the first six platings in final events, it was Australia 649, England 601 and Canada The Edinburgh totals were Australia 644, England 631 and Canada 506. Apart from the Reiser gold, five Canadians won medals to- day. Louise Hanna of Toronto and Brigette Bittner of Elliot Lake, Ont., were second and third behind Barbara Lawton of England in the high jump and Thelma Wright of Vancouver won her second consecutive bronze in the metres. Bruce Pirhie of Saskatoon was the bronze medallist in the shot put behind two Englishmen, Geoff Capes and Michael Winch, and the team of Margaret MacGowan of Waterloo, Ont., Maureen Crowley of Vancouver, Brenda Walsh of Edmonton and Yvonne Saunders of Guelph, Ont., was third in the relay. Miss Reiser, abandoning her customary stretch- running tactics, ran the opposition into the ground in the recording her best time in two years as she won in Her only faster race was the one that first brought her into international prominence, a heat of the at the Munich Olympics in which she finished behind Ludmila Bragina of Russia and both girls broke the world record. Glenda's time then was but she failed to survive the semi-final. It was the buffeting she re- ceived from more experienced European runners when she tried to move out of the pack in the semi-final that started Glenda thinking about going to the front early, but she said to- day that front-running has its disadvantages. "You don't have a rear-view she said. "You can't tell if they're 10 yards back or 30 yards back."

Her time of was a personal best and nearly seven seconds faster than her performance in Edinburgh. Bayi told reporters he could have run faster if he had been Ontario skaters dominate By ALEX BINKLEY MONCTON, N.B. (CP) Ontario skaters won three ju- nior events at the Canadian figure skating championships Friday. Kim Alletson of Ottawa won the junior women's title, Kevin Robertson of St. Catharines, took the junior men's crown and Susan and Eric Gillies of Agincourt captured the junior dance. Miss Alletson won all three sections of the junior women's event and finished with a strong and beautiful performance in the free skate. Robertson also took all three sections of the junior men's event. The win by Miss Carscallen and Gillies was especially popular for the crowd because Gillies is a Moncton native who skates out of Agincourt. "We were happy to come through for them they were cheering for us and that helps a lot." The two have been together for only 5Vz months and they say, "We'll compete together as long as we feel that we will progress, and things look good right now." Their one concern seemed to be that, by winning the ju- nior title, they'll have to move to the senior division. A 'HARD JUMP' Miss Carscallen said: "After only 5% months together, to move up to senior so soon is a hard jump." Carscallen-Gillies got eight ordinals and 63.25 points while Ginnie Griecq and John Rait of Weston, Ont., received 15 ordinals and 61.52 points. Third-place Debbie and Randy Burke of Cnilliwack, B.C. had 19 ordinals and 59.78 points. Miss Alletson won the ju- nior title with nine ordinals and 152.23 points. Susan of Vancouver earned 12 ordinals and 140.63 points. Miss Alletson, 15, said she didn't "feel any pressure at all before I went on the ice. But two weeks ago, if I thought I was going to win I would have been really nervous." She said her performance was her best of the season. "I knew I could do it so I relaxed and just went out and skated." She was runner-up in the ju- nior event last year. Her win moves her into the senior division next year where she'll be up against Lynn Nightengale of Ottawa, an old friend and training mate. Miss Nightengale is favored to win the senior title today. pressed in the men's He was looking over his shoulder as he entered the stretch but Walker had left his challenge too late. Jipcho said he was boxed in on the final bend and lost his stride. "Otherwise I would have barrelled along the straight to the tape with Bayi." There was an upset in the men's 400 relay in which Ja- maica, anchored by spring champion Don Quarrie, was favored. But the first two Jamaican runners fumbled their baton exchange and the West Indians finished fourth behind Australia, Ghana and Nigeria. TCH.'

Smith registers four By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer When the sport of hockey was just catching on fire in Canada back in the late 1800's a number of little word meanings originated such as the famous "hat-trick" and has stayed with the game throughout the years. This particular symbolism had its beginning when a hockey player scored his third goal of the game and was immediately showered with hats by the fans who wanted to honor his accomplishment. This was a great tribute paid to this hockey player, but I'm still wondering what would have happened if the same player had been able to score his fourth goal during the same match. Little has been said about the four-goal performance probably due to its rarity during that time and in the present. But the rare occasions do pop up once in-a-while such as in the case Friday night. Guy Smith accomplished the once in a lifetime feat and propelled the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns to a convincing 7-3 victory over the Olds College Broncos in an Alberta College Athletic Conference Hockey League game staged at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Smith had the sniper's eye and beat Broncos' netminder Kevin Carr once in the first period, twice in the second and again in the third. The Pronghorns were never behind on account of Smith's four-goal outing and led 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes and 6-1 by the end of the second. Teammates Mike Weisgerber, Jim Stewart and Wally Tunow chipped in with single markers while Larry Sears, Greg Becker and Raymond. Rude replied for the Broncos. The locals outshot the visitors 37-27 and were assessed 12 of 17 minor penalties along with two ma- jors. ICE CHIPS Pronghorns have only won five games this season while losing 16 Broncos have been the victims in three of the wins while the Red Deer College Kings suffered the other two setbacks The locals seemed to have an easy time with the Broncos, who have yet to win a game in 21 starts.

Five of the eight teams to play here will be selected from the top finishers in this year's world championship tournament at Miami, Fla., in November: Canada, as host country for the Intercontinental Cup, will be represented, as will two other teams invited following the world tournament. The Canadian Amateur Baseball Association has arranged for 16 games in the series to be played at Jarry Park, home of the National League Montreal Expos, and 14 at Fredericton. lineup which seems to be working out fine for the first- year coach Al Borggard is back in the Pronghorns' lineup and is playing a little more aggressively than usual Craig Walters was not dressed for the locals last night as he sat out the game to serve a suspension he received last weekend in Calgary.
