Tuesday, February 6, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 9 But he'll take the two points Crusader coach admits win not a thing of beauty I5y THE CANADIAN PRESS . Cleveland coach BiE Need-ham admitted Monday night's World Hockey Association game wasn't an artistic success, but his Crusaders were willing to take the two points anyhow. The Crusaders used the free-1 wheeling Chicago Cougars to solidify their lead atop the Eastern Division with a 7-5 victory in front of 2,673 Cleveland fans. "This was two big points," -Needham admitted after the game in which the Cougars took the lead 40 seconds into the first period. "They (the Cougars) were all over the ice and we made the mistake of trying to run with them. "But after that first quick goal, the guys realized they had better start skating and we got going." In the only other game, Houston Aeros lost a chance to close the gap on Western Division-leading Winnipeg Jets when they lost a 6-3 game at home to Minnesota Fighting Saints. The Saints return home tonight against New York Raiders, Philadelphia Blazers are at Ottawa Nationals and New England Whalers visit Alberta Oilers. PADS EAST LEAD Garry Jarrett and Jim Wiste were two-goal scorers for the Crusaders, the others going to Ted Hodgson, Doug Brindley and Ron Buchanan. Rosaire Paiement, with two, Dan Lod-boa, Bob Sicinski and Rick Morris tallied for Chicago. Cleveland now leads New England by five points in the East. The fast-skating Cougars, who again got solid goaltending from Jim McLeod, were still very much in contention until Jarrett came through with his 20th and 29th goals in the third period, his second a 60-footer into an empty Cougar net with McLeod on the bench in favor of a sixth attacker. Minnesota grabbed an early lead with Frank Sanders, George Morrison and Len Lil-yholm scoring in the first period which proved the difference with each club sharing the scoring in the other two periods. Bill Young, Mike McMahon and Jimmy Johnson scored the other Saints goals as 3,119 Houston fans looked on. Don Grierson, Tel Taylor and Duke Harris replied for the Aeros. The victory put a temporary halt to Houston's challenge for western honors. The setback left them five points behind Winnipeg with back-to-back games with the Jets in Houston scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Imagine Bronco Nagurskt playing football in skintight stretch pants of double-knit nylon, white kangaroo leather shoes and a mesh jersey of nylon taffeta. Well that's the kind of uniform the Hall of Fame fullback would likely wear if he played today because fashion now rivals function in the business of outfitting players. "It's not how good you are; it's how good you look," says Stan Kardon, a representative for a major sports uniform manufacturer. Kardon and spokesmen for more than 50 other firms displayed a veritable rainbow of merchandise during a recent coaches clinic at a local hotel. "We have shoulder pads in a red, white and blue motif," Kardon said as he stood before his mountain of $25 pants, $30 shoes and jerseys in the $10 to $15 price range. "The pants and jerseys come in all colors and designs," he said. "We're using fabrics that only women used to wear-and the mesh jerseys are excellent for hot weather. "The shoes come in black and white," he added, "but we do have kits that can be used to dye them any color. Co-ordinating with the uniform colors is very popular." Striped kneesocks are big, and so are terrycloth wrist bands, originally intended to just soak up sweat. Function is still a strong selling point, and the vogue is toward specialization. For example, there are special types of shoulder pads for linemen, running backs, linebackers and quarterbacks and receivers. Prices rim as high as $50 a pair. One firm advertises its "linebacker" pads as "designed for hitters who want the maximum in shoulder pad protection." Shoes are also made for various positions, as well as synthetic turf or grass, dry fields or wet fields. Of course, low-cut, sleek-looking shoes are the rage, and that gives rise to an industry in itself: ankle taping. SOMETHING HAPPENING V?L5T0K?
