TYPEWRITERS KODIAK COACH BEN BROOKS COUNSELS HIS TEAM DURING A TIME OUT Locals run by Grant MacEwan 105-49 Kodiaks' AC AC record now 10-0 By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks ran their Alberta College Athletic Conference record to 10 0 Saturday with a convincing 105 49 win over Grant MacEwan Griffiths. Once the game passed the half way point, with the Kodiaks leading 56 25, the only questions that remained to be answered were, could the Kodiaks pass the 100 point mark and could they hold Grant MacEwan to under 50 points? The answer to both questions was yes. As easy a time as the Kodiaks had in their game the Kodiettes had just as easy, if not easier, time in their contest against the Grant MacEwan girl's team. The Kodiettes won their ninth game of the ACAC season against one loss when they buried Grant MacEwan girls 78 -15. By half time in the Kodiette game Grant MacEwan had managed only two points, that basket coming 12 minutes into the game. Kodiette coach Ray Stoddard seemed at a loss at what to do in order to keep the game respec- table. He pulled out his high scoring forward Shirley Yuill early in the first half and only put her back into the game with a few minutes remaining, and he went to his bench consistently throughout the contest. But it didn't matter, the Kodiettes just kept rolling along. Despite sitting out most of the game Yuill still managed to fire home 21 same total as Shelley Reeder, the other Kodiette listed among the league's top 10 scorers. Two other LCC gals hit the double figure mark as both Doreen Gurney and Jan Paton accounted for 10 points apiece. The Kodiettes hit 38% from the floor while the hapless Grant MacEwan girls could only manage, to hit on seven of 42 shots from the field. Gail Chubb was the top scorer for the visitors with six points and Shirley Wolfe had five. Only one other gal, Mary Anne Clarke hit the scoresheet for Grant MacEwan, she had two points. The Kodiettes were much sharper in the pass- ing department Saturday afternoon than they were Friday evening and they also played far more aggressively'defencively, causing a great number of turnovers. In the Kodiak Griffith contest, all the Kodiaks but one hit the scoresheet and five made it into double figures. Greg Hess was top man in the point depart- ment hooping 23 points for the winners. He also led the team in rebounds, pulling in 13, five more than runner up Wayne Anderson. Kendon Eakett, perhaps the individual star of the game if one could be selected from the po- tent Kodiak scoring machine, fired home 15 points as well as making the Kodiak offence click with some fine play making. Dave Preus added 14 points to go with his rebounding total of seven. Tied with 12 points apiece were John Jasiukiewicz and Glenn Schuler. Kodiak coach Ben Brooks was encouraged by his club's rebounding recovery after a medicore first half against the. taller Grant MacEwan squad. He" pointed to his stat sheets that showed the Kodiaks barely holding their own in the first half, but completely dominating the boards dur- ing the second stanza. "We had 20 turnovers during the game but we also had 20 Brooks stated. "I'm satisfied with an even balance between tur- novers and interceptions. It's, always nice to have more interceptions, but a balance such as we have here cancels out any errors that were made." Curtis Travis, who hauled in six rebounds, just missed the double figure mark, ramming in nine points. Bill Peterson was the scoring star of the game for Grant MacEwan, collecting a total of 22 points. While he hit on only five of 19 from the floor he was good on 12 for 17 from the foul line. An interesting aspect to the game was the number of men who fouled out. Grant MacEwan had four men leave early and the Kodiaks had two. MacEwan's coach seemed to feel his team was being picked on foul wise but an examina- tion of the stat sheet shows his boys collected 37 fouls to 31 fay the Kodiaks. While the referees were calling a tight game, they were calling it both ways. There was no room for complaint. Kodiaks continue to roll past the opposition in league play and their goal of reaching the Cana- dian championship finals, held for the first time on a college level this year, seems to be becom- ing a realistic reality. REBOUNDS Two Grant MacEwan men were tied for second in the scoring with six points apiece, Henry Van Doesburg and Jim Blake Blake is a hard working guard who is a real assest to the northern ball club public address announcer Roy Thurston has a knack for making even the reporting of a basket interesting... he is never reluctant to praise the work of the radio arts students who video tape every Kodiak and Kodiette game either Doreen Gurney hit a number of fancy hook shot type layups during'the girls game for the Kodiaks Shirley Wolfe was the only gal who seemed to be operating with any confidence for the MacEwan girls John Jasiukiewicz had one of his highest scoring games of the season despite fouling out with 14 minutes left to play.. Wendell Cahoon and Bruce Hamilton both had seven points for the Kodiaks Guy Pomahac had the best shooting average, hitting on two of three shots Hess was 10 for 18 Hamilton was five for seven at the foul stripe Kodiaks and Kodiettes next action will be Feb. 5 at Medicine Hat. Clubs surprise Cougars, Bruins By THE CANADIAN PRESS Last-place Winnipeg Clubs conquered two tennis on their weekend British Columbia road trip, including Victoria Cougars, western division leaders. The Clubs turned in a stan- dout defensive effort Saturday as they posted a 4-3 upset over the Cougars.

In Sun- day action, Calgary Centen- nials beat Regina 4-2, Victoria edged Kamloops 4-3 and Flin Flon Bombers took a 6-4 win over Edmonton Oil Kings. In New Westminster, the outstanding goaltending of Lome Molleken saved the Clubs. Winnipeg captain Kelly Greenbank scored twice for the Clubs who had period leads of 2-1 and 3-2. Larry Skinner. Grant Eakin and Diiryi Sutlon picked up the other Winnipeg goals. Scoring for the Bruins were Harold Phillipoff, Mike Sleep, Clayton Pachal and Bob McNeice. Victoria continued to dominate Kamloops Sunday. Kamioops has won 19 games, lost three and tied one on home ice this sea.snn and all three losses were at the hands of Victoria. The Cougars scored twice within 50 seconds midway through the third period for the winning margin. Victoria led 2-1 after the first period and the teams were tied 2-2 after 40 minutes. In Flin Flon Sunday, Steve Montgomery's goal early in the third period and an empty- net insurance tally by Rick Dorman provided Flin Flon with its win over Edmonton.
