Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, February 3, 1975 Ten of 11 men on team are from Lethbridge Pedersen leads way as locals dominate By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor It was almost an all-Lethbridge show at the Southern Alberta five pin rolloffs over the weekend. "It was certainly a great show by our Lethbridge said Bob Costanzo Sunday after it was all over. McQuarrie rink goes unbeaten Myrna McQuarrie was frustrated at the Southern Alberta women's curling finals so she simply took it out on her op- ponents in the 26th annual women's open bonspiel staged at the Lethbridge Curling Club this past weekend. McQuarrie, with Rita Tarnava at third, Barb Davis at second and Barb Allsop at lead, went unbeaten through the three days of action to capture the Number One Eaton's of Canada event. In chalking up five straight wins McQuarrie capped off her big weekend with a decisive 13-5 win over Irene Thompson of Lethbridge in the final of the first event. McQuarrie reached the final with a decisive win over Enid Pepper of Lethbridge and then went on to trim Thompson. On the other hand, Thompson earned a berth in the final by stopp- ing Joan Stephenson of Calgary in the other semi-final. Betty Kipta of Medicine Hat was one of two visiting rinks to break the Lethbridge monopoly as she won the Number Two Hoyt's Hardware event with a last-end 6-4-triumph over Irene Lindsay of the host club. With Kipta on her rink were Sharon LeFever at third, JoAnn Mair at second and lead Shirley Gaffney. In the semi-finals Kipta edged past Marj Scotter of Lethbridge while Lindsay ousted clubmate Millie Snowden. The Number Three Sears Ltd. event was won by Mildred Story of Lethbridge 11-5 over Al Bligh, also of the city. Story, with Alma Lees at third, Jean Peake second and Joanne Overn at lead, sidelined Jeanette Lewko in one semi- final while Bligh workout over Sharon Smith in the other. Joyce Gorrie simply ran Bea Thompson out of rocks to earn a 9-6 win in the final of the Number Four S.S. Kresge event. With Gorrie were third Kirsten Morrice, second Helen Watson and lead Vi Kinchloe. In the semi-finals Gorrie downed Phyllis Culley while Thompson bested Carol Zeer. Marilyn Thorson of Bow Island won the Number Five Lethbridge Hotelmen's event as she downed Sharon Bene of the host club 10-6 after Bene had reached the final with a win over Ollie Bertie of Taber in the semi-final. Thorson, who sidelined Lorna Smith in the other semi-final, had help from rinkmates Florence Thacker at third, Lorraine Cooper at second and Mabel Angle at lead. A total of 48 rinks, 27 from the host club, took part in the three-day bonspiel. MCQUARRIE, DAVIS FRONT TARNAVA, ALLSOP BACK When the dust had settled at Capri Bowl the final tally showed 10 of the 11 men's teams were from Lethbridge while in the women's six of the 10 gals are from here. Costanzo didn't have to say much more as the totals spoke for themselves. He did point out, however, that Dianne Violini led everyone with her brilliant total. The bowlers opened play Saturday at Holiday Bowl and then invaded Capri Sunday. Violini, who showed her heels last weekend in the city roll- offs, was at her consistent best again this weekend. Saturday, at Holiday, she ran up a total of on games of 241, and 264. Despite the fact she was in control she proceeded to give the pins another battering Sun- day as she rolled games of and 303. Even men's leader Jack Smeed had to take a back seat to Violini's hot hand. Smeed, who was well off the pace in last week's action, proved once again that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Smeed battled Reg Arnold, last week's leader, head to head and emerged 38 points ahead alter 16 games. In chalking up the win Smeed rolled a total, including Saturday when his lead over Arnold was a mere 12 pins.

In fifth place was veteran Norm Tolley with a total made up of games of 276, 239, 210, 298, 231, 304, 254 and 263 on Saturday and 322, 246, 246, 269, 293, 197, 223 and 190 Sunday. Completing the men's team, along with their Saturday and final totals were Tom Baker and Ken Malcomson 010 and Murray Vickers and Jim Boreski of Medicine Hat and Bill Billings and and John Rempel and It was almost a husband wife combination at the top of things Sunday but Violini had something to say about that as she forced Jeanette Smeed to settle for second place in the women's. Jeanette finished with a total after rolling Saturday. Her games Saturday were and 273. Sunday she hit for 286, 233, 322, 383, 215, 247, 230 and 247.

Fourth place finisher Sandra Hunt looked as though she may run away with things as she started Saturday with a brilliant 322 and a 401 for a two game block of 723. She settled down, however, to chalk up a total. liar other games Saturday were 232, 169, 202, 219, 288 and 224. Sunday she had games of 174, 269, 231, 235, 178, 244, 284 and 172.
