Four teams after first place Pronghorns sharing the cellar again By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer One night all alone in the cellar of the Canada West University Athletic Associa- tion was evidently enough for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. After suffering a humiliating 93 68 loss Friday night, the Huskies came back to edge the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns 78 75 Saturday night at the U of L gymnasium. The two clubs entered the weekend series tied for last place in the CWUAA with just two wins apiece, but the Pronghorns' convincing win Friday appeared to leave no> doubt as to which team, deserved the cellar position. However, the Huskies did an abrupt about face Satur- day, and their tough zone defence, coupled with a mediocre Pronghorn effort, produced another example of what Lethbridge coach Robin Fry has dubbed "the Saturday night syndrome." Over the past two years of. league competition, the Pronghorns have lost the se- cond game of a weekend set every time they have won on Friday. The hustle that was so devastating in the Friday win was simply not there Satur- day, and more importantly, the two clubs reversed' their performances in the shooting department. In the 93 68 victory, the locals hit nearly half of their shots while the Huskies -had only a 34% average. But in the second game, Saskatchewan shot an excellent 47% from the floor while the Pronghorns managed to score on only 27% of their attempts. The game was a thriller from start to finish as the club's see sawed with the lead, and at no time was the spread more than seven points. Phil Letham's driving layup just four seconds into the contest set the tone for a fast paced first half, and a free throw by Richard Chabpt just before the half ended gave the Pronghorns a 36 35 lead. The second half was a replica of the first, as the lead changed hands on numerous occasions before Saskatchewan went ahead to stay with six minutes to go. The visitors built up a 71 64 lead in the next three and a half minutes, and really won the game on the foul line as the Pronghorns were forced to foul their three little guards to get the ball back. A quick combination of two free throws by Phil Letham and a basket by Richard Foggo brought the Pronghorns to within two points with 40 seconds remaining, but Don Saxton's three point play shortly thereafter put it out of reach.

The game took a strange turn then, beginning when the ball went out of bounds with :17 showing on the clock and the Huskies ahead 78-73. The clock was allowed to run down to :14 seconds, but the Pronghorns protested, and it was reset all the way back to :21. Then, when the locals inbounded, the clock did not start and referee Doug McKay was forced to stop the game and begin play over again. At any rate, Max Zaugg's jumper wound up the scoring, but the mix up certainly did not add to the game. Saskatchewan coach Don Fry was understandably up- set. "If we had lost because of the extra time Lethbridge got, Pioneer League says no designated hitter STAMPEDE WRESTLING EXHIBITION PAVILION TONITEI P.M. KIM n LARRY LANE MMK UWM w JOHN QUIKK KEUT TWHtt n KITH COWNY FMNKK UK HITO n THORNTON STROM I WET n CAUEWCR I KMT M. it.M________ GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) Pioneer League direc- tors and club leaders voted Saturday three to one against the use of the designated hitter for the 1975 season. Native Sons nip Redcliff by 3-2 score The Lethbridge Y's Men Native Sons built up a 3 1 lead after one period Saturday night, and held on to edge Redcliff Cubs 3 2 in Central Alberta Junior Hockey League action at Henderson Ice Centre. Goals by Ron Simmons, Reg Osmond and Greg Kveder in the opening period provided the winning margin for the locals' 24th win against two losses in league play. Redcliff got a goal from Steve Bosch in the first period, and then narrowed the margin to 3 2 when Terry Bartman scored in the middle frame. The teams battled through a scoreless final frame. Brent Sauer was out- standing in the nets for Redcliff, as he stopped 45 Native Son shots, while Gary Clark had a relatively easy time in the Lethbridge net, making just 27 saves. Lethbridge took five of nine minor penalties handed out during the game. Next action for the Sons will be Tuesday night in Pincher Creek when they take on The Pass Red Devils of the Alberta Junior. Hockey League in an effort to prepare for the Canada Winter Games. The locals, of course, are representing the province of Alberta in the Games. Then, on Wednesday, the Native Sons pay Redcliff a return visit In a regularly scheduled CAJHL contest. The vote followed league lines With the three farm clubs of National League teams voting for abolishment and the American League farm club voting for the rule. Earle Garrison, president of the Great Falls Giants Baseball Club, said he had been instructed by the parent club, the San Francisco Giants, to oppose the rule. Garrison said the director of the Giants farm systems believes it is more important to evaluate the over all abilities of the players at the rookie level rather than putting them into permanent roles. American League represen- tative Gene Bush of Idaho Falls said his club's parent, the California Angels, had instructed the Idaho club to promote use of designated hitters. The designated hitter bats in place of the pitcher in each rotation of the batting order, but spends the rest of the game in the dugout. Billings, a farm club of the Cincinnati Reds, and new Pioneer League team, the Lethbridge Expos, which is under the Montreal Expos, also attended the meeting. The 1975 schedule for the four teams was formed, and the group agreed Ogden will be considered a member if it is able to come up with a player development'agree- ment with a major club. Ogden was the fourth team in the league last year, but could find no sponsoring parent club. The Pioneer League clubs voted to increase dues to 700 for the next season.

Pronghorn coach Robin Fry agreed, saying, "Naturally I'm disappointed about losing, but if we had won after that had happened, it would have looked like outright cheating." Neither coach thought the errors were deliberate, however, and felt simply that too much responsibility had been placed on inexperienced officials. "From what I understand, it was only the second time the timekeeper has run the said the Huskie men- tor. "If that's the case, the fault lies higher up." Paul Jacbby put on an out- standing outside shooting per- formance throughout the contest, and wound up with 24 points for the Huskies, while Roger Ganes contributed 14. For the Pronghorns, Phil Letham racked up 21 points and Richard Foggo added 19. Lauren Edlund and 'Roger Baldry chipped in with 11 and 10 points respectively. In the' women's game, the Pronghorns came up with a solid team effort, and pushed third place Huskiettes to the limit before dropping a 59 56 decision. Karen Kusler had 15 points to lead Saskatchewan, who led .just 33 32 at the half, and Donna Colburn added 14. Jacy Fox put ion an out- standing two way perfor- mance for the locals, piling up 16 points while Debbie Yanota added 12. The Prunghorns shot 38% from the floor while Saskatchewan connected on 36% of their attempts. The losses Saturday left the Pronghorn men with a 3 13 season record, while the women stand 2 -14. The men, of course, are again tied with Saskatchewan in the cellar, although the Huskies have a pair of games in hand. The women are in fifth place in their standings, two games ahead of Calgary Din- nies, who are winless in 14 starts. Higher up in the men's stan-' dings, some interesting things are happening. In Saturday's other games, UBC Thunderbirds ignored the home court advantage to surprise Alberta's Golden Bears 67 54 in Edmonton, and Calgary Dinosaurs took their second straight win over Vic- toria Vikings in Calgary, nipp- ing the league leaders 51-50. If you look at the loss column, the four clubs are now tied for first place. But Victoria maintains their lead because they have played two more games, both of which they won. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The LCI Clipper Queens made it four in a row Saturday night. Every year since its incep- tion four years ago the Clipper Queens have won their own In- vitational Girls Basketball Tournament. Saturday they won it via a 30 25 comeback win over Marian High School of Regina. The Clipper Queens won all three of their games in the eight team tournament, defeating Edmonton M. E. Lazerte Voyageurs Friday and Bishop Carroll Cardinals of Calgary, and of course the Regina girls in the final. M. E. Lazerte took the con- solation prize, edging Lethbridge's Winston Churchill Griffins 48 46 in the semi windup game Saturday night. In a capsule the tournament looked like this: Friday Regina defeated Grande Prairie St. Joseph's Ceinahs 44 28; Winston Churchill dropped a 48 38 contest to Crescent Heights Chinooks of Calgary; Cranbrook Mount Baker Trojanettes beat Bishop Carroll 51-47; and LCI dropped M. E. Lazerte 48 25. Saturday Winston Churchill bested St. Joseph's 33-32; M. E. Lazerte dropped Bishop Carroll 68 52; Regina beat Crescent Heights 51 32; the Consolation went to M. E. Lazerte 48 46 over Winston Churchill and the finals was won by the LCI 30 25 over Regina. The Clipper Queens ran into a stubborn bunch of gals from Regina in the final arid had to fight every inch of the way for their fourth straight cham- pionship. Regina held a first quarter lead of 10 4 but by half time the Clippers had narrowed the gap to one point, 13 12. A key to the LCI victory was the Regina club's lack of scor- ing in both the second and fourth quarters. The Clippers outscored the visitors 8 3 in the second quarter and 7 4 in the final stanza after leading the Marian gals 23 21 at three quarter time. The lead changed hands just after the start of the second half but Regina gained it back with only 25 seconds remain- ing in the third quarter only to see it slip away for good as the Clipper Queens took com- mand in the final quarter. LCI should receive full marks for their win as they never game up, even when it looked like Regina would put the game on ice as early as the opening quarter. Connie Frouws, a key figure both offensively and defen- sively for the champion Clipper Queens, led the team in the final with 10 points while Barb Payne chipped in eight and Cathy Fraser had six. Lorrie Kozicki was the top point getter for the losers hooping 12 points and Patti Mayer was nfixt in line with five. Kozicki, an absolute standout for Regina in the final contest, was named the tournament's most valuable and most sportsman like player. Honorable mention went to Debbie Bosch of Winston Churchill and Laurie Holder of the Lazerte Voyageurs. Winston Churchill came within a breath of. taking the consolation game over M. E. Lazerte and at one time held a three point edge with only six minutes to play. But a series of bad passes and three consecutive Voyageur baskets put the northern club ahead to stay. Churchill seemed to be able to close the gap to two points a number of times throughout the contest and except for the brief lead they held, that was as close as they could come to the Voyageurs. Lazerte held a 33 31 lead at the half and were led in the point parade by Jean Litven with 19 and Sherry Stevenson with nine points. Leading the Griffins in scoring was Debbie Bosch, also with 19, and Diane Turner with eight. LCI advanced to the final with a 58 29 win over Mount Baker Trojanettes. Myrna Allert and Debbie Wakelen were the top scorers for the Clipper Queens, who led 30-12 at half time, with 10 points apiece. Lori Hrisook hooped 14 points for the losers and Susan Scott chipped in with six. Regina defeated Crescent Heights Chinooks 51 32 to earn the right to go against the Clipper Queens in the Saturday night final. Kozicki once'again topped the scoring for Regina with 25 big points and Debbie Morton was next in line with 10. Pam Mann was the big gun for the losing Chinooks with 16 points. Churchill's crack at the con- solation prize came via an overtime squeaker with St. Joseph's. With everything all tied up 29 29 at full time the game moved into overtime and the final result was a 33 32 Churchill win. Debbie Bosch became the hero of the hour for the Griffins when she sank two foul shots with only four seconds remaining, moving the Griffins from one point back to one point ahead. Bosch fired home 14 points in all and Diane Turner's 11 were next highest. Maureen Wild had 10 for the losers. Lazerte dropped Bishop Carroll 68 52, led by Shirley Stevenson with 23 points and Jean Litven with 13 to gain the consolation final. Bishop Carroll Cardinals received 18 points from Georgina Pipella and 17 from Gerri Moerike. REBOUNDS The near capacity crowd in the LCI gym must have set a record for loudness between cheerleaders and a dozen Clipper Queen supporters with megaphones it was nearly im- possible to hear oneself think. the M. E. Lazerete Voyageurs. are last year's 4A provincial girls champions... was no disgrace for Cliurchill to lose by only two points to a team of that calibre Tom Greenway, a black belt holder in judo, put on an exhibition of his craft along with orange belt holder Mike O'Shey the crowd gave O'Shey a big hand at the end of the match, held during half time of the finals game, when he finally threw Greenway Tom aided in the throw somewhat. Cam McLennon presented the trophies to each individual member of the Clipper Queens at the close of the tournament the Ram's football quarterback made sure he kissed each and every recipient public address announcer was another high school football regular, Gordon Thomas.
