Easy victors in gcds hoop tourney Clipper Queens keep honors at home The Lethbrir'^c Collegiate Institute Clipper Queens are becoming more and more unpopular in the world of girls' high school basketball in Alberta. The big reason for their unpopularity is due to the dynasty they have created, labelling them as unbeatable opponents. In the past, the Clipper Queens have captured countless numbers of tourney titles and three of the last four provincial championships. The personality rating didn't bother the Clipper Queens on the weekend though as they went ahead and captured their third straight LCI Invitational Girls' Basketball Tournament title. Clipper Queens bested seven teams in the two-day event which was staged at the LCI gymnasium Friday and Saturday. Enroute to the third annual tourney title, the Clipper Local curlers trium Number two winners Anita Hunter of Calgary won the number two event.

McQuarrie, who lost out by a whisker to Polly Beaton of Medicine Hat in the southern Alberta women's curling play-downs, made no mistakes over the weekend as she did not suffer a loss in winning the number one T. Eaton Co. event. McQuarrie, with teammates Rita Tarnava at third, Barb Davis at second and Gail Umeris at lead, defeated Helen Williams of Lethbridge in the final. In the final of the number two Hoyt's Hardware event Anita Hunter of Calgary came up with a narrow victory over Carol Zeer, also of Calgary. The third event saw Bea Thompson of Milo take top honors over Marguerite Linn. The third event was the Stewart's Ladies Wear event. Sharon Bene of Lethbridge won the number four S. S. Kresge honors after stopping Marie Prokop of Castlegar in the final. Millie Snowdon of the city defeated clubmate Ha Larue to win the number five Lethbridge Hotelmen event. There were two aggregates up for grabs in the three-day bonspiel. McQuarrie won the in-town trophy put up for competition by Acme Merchandising Distributors while the runner-up was Williams.

In the championship final, the Clipper Queens had no envisions of losing their tourney title as they built up a quick 10-2 lead after the first quarter of play. In the second quarter, the Clipper Queens maintained a stone-walled defence and continued a modest offensive attack which gave them an 18-6 lead into the showers at half-time. Grande Prairie came to life in the third quarter, but the damage had been done and Clipper Queens sat back in the driver's seat the rest of the way. Debby Borzel led the Queens with a big 14-point outing while Lorell Lilja added another 10. Teresa Wynia and M. Scheunhagge hooped seven points apiece in a losing cause.

Hull registers hat-trick Sunday By THE CANADIAN PRESS. When Bobby Hull decided last summer to jump to the World Hockey Association, it was generally assumed he could conceivably become the first professional hockey player to register 100 goals in a season. Things haven't worked out that way for the 33-year-old player-coach of Winnipeg Jets. His former employees, Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, launched court action that prevented him from practising or playing with the Jets. The court proceedings finally went in Hull's favor, but by that time the fledgling WHA's season was well under way and Hull had a lot of catching up to do. The Golden Jet got three goals in a WHA game for the first time Sunday night, leading Winnipeg to a 5-3 comeback win ever Alberta Oilers and padding the Jets' lead in the Western Division to five points over Houston Aeros. AEROS PRESSING The Aeros, idle Sunday, had closed to within three points of the division leaders Saturday with a 7-1 decision over Minnesota Fighting Saints. Elsewhere Sunday, New York Raiders edged Quebec Les Nor-diques 5-4 End Cleveland Crusaders took a three-point lead in the eastern race by defeating Ottawa Nationals 3-2 while New-England Whalers were dropping a 4-3 decision to Los Angeles Sharks. In the only other Saturday contest, Chicago Cougars and New York played to a 2-2 tie. The Crusaders are at home tonight against Chicago while Houston entertains Minnesota.

Saturday night the Kings were steam-rolled by the Calgary Canucks, led by the record-setting six goal performance of Dale Eloschuk, 14-4. Sunday's game saw the Red Deer Rustlers hold off the persistent Lethbridge team and come out on the long end of a 5-2 score. While the Kings were never really in Saturday's game, trailing 8-2 by the end of the second period, they were impressive in one aspect of the game - they never quit trying. This digging and second effort carried over against the Rustlers Sunday night. Doug Ltndskog led the Rustlers' attack as he potted two goals and assisted on two others Sunday night. Witf Foord opened the scoring for the visitors and Lind-skog gave them a 2-0 lead before the Kings hit the score-sheet on a shorthanded goal by Dave Litchfield. Rustlers' Reg Kinch rounded out the scoring in the opening stanza. Red Deer got the only goal in the second when Darryl Wal-1 lis cashed in with Kings' Tim O'Donnell in the penalty box. The clubs split in the scoring in the final stanza as Pat Springonatic pulled the Kings to within two but Ltndskog put the game on ice for Red Deer late in the game with his second marker. Eloschuk's six goals for the Canucks Saturday night set a new Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring record. He potted three in a row in the first period, one in the second and two more in the third. Greg Smith banged home two for the Canucks and Joe De lure, Stewart Younger, Brian Miller, Dean Magee, Brock Keluznick and Mark Lomenda rounded out the potent Canuck attack. Lomenda also picked up six helpers in the game. Bruce Small, hustling all night long, hit the scoresheet twice for the Kings while the other Lethbridge marksmen wet� Brent Cleland and Don Renner. The Kings were penalized eight times Saturday while Calgary cooled off in the sin-bin on nine occasions. Sunday the Lethbridgeites picked up eight more penalties, including a misconduct to Cleland. The Rustlers were penalized 12 times. The Sugar Kings had an opportunity in each game to play with a two-man advantage but failed to capitalize on either occasion. And, as if they didn't have enough trouble, the Kings also had two goals disallowed, one in each game. In Calgary the Canucks grabbed seven goals in the first period Sunday, and downed Edmonton Mets 10-4. Roger Lamoureux of the Canucks set a league record with five assists in the first period. Stu Younger with three goals led the Calgary scoring. Single goals were added by Greg Smith, Roger Bourque, Mark Lomenda, Joe Delure, Warren Cook, Dale Eloschuk and Brock Kaluznick. Dave Bell with two goals and Peter Skrabyk and Glen Roberts with one each replied for Edmonton. In Blairmore Red Deer Rustlers scored a 5-2 win over the Pass Red Devils Saturday night. Terry Wittchen, Brian Sutter, Witf Foord, Reg Kinch and Bary Lassiter scored for the Rustlers while Lyle Murray and Gord Adomiet replied for the Bed Devils. In Drumheller Ryan Wecker scored three goals to lead the Falcons to a 9-7 victory over Edmonton Mets Saturday night. Roger Mitchell, Dennis Wal-lis, Jim Bertram, Dale Booth, Ron Rose and Ken Nelson rounded out the Falcons' tally. Greg Styles, Pete Skrabyk, Gord Brimacombe, Al Mason, Marv Lank and Jim Hoyda shared scoring for the Mets. ICE CHIPS ...
