Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Key encounter for locals before long road trip Tigers invade Bronco corral Sunday Mirkovich leads Bulldogs in victory over Raymond By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Coach Earl Ingarfield of the Lethbridge Broncos is looking at Sunday's Western Canada Hockey League game with Medicine Hal Tigers- in two ways. There are other clubs Ingarfield would like to see his club face just before embarking on an eight game road trip early next week. On the other hand, a win over the Tigers Sunday afternoon at the Sportsplex at two o'clock might be just what the doctor ordered to remedy the road performance of the Broncos. "We have played well our last three times away from said Ingarfield, "But we just can't get any breaks." the latest disappointment away from home came Thursday evening in Calgary against the Centen- nials. "We played well enough to win that ad- mitted Ingarfield. Broncos lost 3-2 as the Cents scored with 29 seconds left in the game. The loss came after the Broncos had rattled the goalpost twice and missed on three clear breakaways on net. "Hendricks was hot and we just couldn't beat him more than was the way Ingarfield summed DON MURDOCH up the setback. The Broncos had belted the same Centennials 7-2 at home Tuesday evening: Thursday's loss was the llth straight for the Broncos on the road and yet they have lost just once since November 24th at home. Sunday's game will be the fifth meeting of the two clubs in regular season play. Tigers hold the up- per hand with three wins and a loss. Their only loss to the Broncos came in their last visit here and Ingarfield would like to see a repeat performance by his charges. "A win over the 'Hat would be just said the coach. "Especially now that we will be on the road for eight games in the next two weeks." Only Brian Sutler is expected to miss the game with the Tigers Sunday. A number of Ihe Broncos are nursing minor aches and pains bul nolhing serious despite the rough contest with the Centen- nials that saw eight fights. Meanwhile, the Tigers took care of the Centen- nials 9-5 Friday night as Barry Dean scored three times. Dean has enjoyed success against the Bron- cos this year and will be one of the Tigers watched closely Sunday. Another pair of Tigers Ingarfield has reason to be concerned about are rookie Don Murdoch and defenceman Bryan Maxwell. Maxwell, a Leihbridge product, anchors the Tigers' solid defence while Murdoch has proven to be the league's most potent scorer this season. Murdoch, who looks like he could still play Ban- tarn hockey, will go after Number 60 Sunday after- noon against the Broncos. Tom Bast and Greg Vaydik added two goals each for the Tigers Friday while Murdoch and Maxwell added singles. Don Ashby, with his 38th and 39th goals, led Calgary while Larry Lestander, Brian and Denny McLean added a goal each. The teams divided 36 penalties in the roughly played encounter. Three was the magic number Friday night as three games were played in the Western Canada Hockey League. Leftwinger Barry Dean fired three goals at Calgary to lead Medicine Hat Tigers to a 9-5 victory over the Centennials while at Regina the Brandon Wheat Kings scored three goals within 106 seconds of the first period before coasting to a 5-3 win over the Regina Pats. And at Kamloops, the Chiefs came up with a three-goal rally to edge New Westminster Bruins 5-4. The results didn't change the standings and New Westminster is scheduled to meet Victoria tonight, Edmonton will be at Winnipeg and Brandon at Medicine Hat. New Westminster scored two goals early in the third period to take a 4-2 lead but power play goals by Brad Gassbff and Darryl Ferner tied the score. Then Neil Lyseng's goal at of (he third period capped the three-goal rally for the victory. Kamioops led 2-1 after the first period but Bruins scored the lone goal of the second frame. Reg Kerr and Terry McDonald scored the other Kamloops goals. Barry Smith scored the first three Bruins' goals and Harold Phillipoff the other. Gord Laxton blocked 42 shots in the Bruins net while Kamloops goalie Mark Earp turned aside 31 shots. New Westminster took eight of 12 minor penalties and each club took one misconduct and one major. Wheat Kings scored the three fast goals in the first period for a 3-1 lead and then scored the only goal of the second frame. Rick Blight led Brandon with two goals and Dan Bonar, Doug Murray and Dale Parker adding singles. Mike Harazny, Dave Faulkner and Allan Dumba replied for Regina. Regina outshot Brandon 38-33 and the Wheat Kings took six of nine minor penalties. Each team was assessed two majors. BRYAN MAXWELL Roxie Ann Rice told a convincing story Drug peddler 6a very good con woman' Perry Mirkovich demonstrated why he is one of Southern Alberta's top high school basketball players Fri- day night as he piled up 31 points to lead Winston Churchill Bulldogs to an 82-61 triumph over Raymond Comets in 4A Boys League play. Barry Schmidt and Kendall Duce added 13 points each for the Bulldogs, who led 44-37 at the half. For Raymond, Mark Williams and Jeff Hill each hooped 11 points while Jim Ralph and Bob McCue picked up 10 each. In the junior varsity contest, Raymond Mustangs came back from a 13-11 hall- time deficit to down Winston Churchill Mastiffs 48-32. Dan Williams fired in 18 points for the winners while Brian Hicken added 16. Brian Saleski was tops for Churchill with nine points. In the Southwest Conference, Picture Butte Sugar Kings moved into a first-place tie with the idle Fort Macleod Flyers when they downed Milk River Comets 47-37. Picture Butte is now tied with the Flyers with a 10-1 record. Murray Hughes, with 14 points, and Terry Hanna with 13, paced the Sugar Kings who led just 23-21 at the half. Dan Russell replied with 10 points for Milk River. In Vauxhall, the Stirling Lakers came on strong in the second half to stretch a lead into a 55-40 triumph over the Vikings. Steven Hill had 15 points to lead the Lakers, who also got 13 points from Robert Oler. Ben Janz rimmed 16 points for Vauxhail and Richard Stamp chipped in with 10. Elsewhere, Mike Girbav sank 19 points to pace 'the Kate Andrews Gaels to a 56-43 win oyer W. R. Myers Trotters. George Low added 14 points for the winners, while Keith Jensen was top scorer for Myers with 12. In the lone junior varsity en- counter Friday night, Kate Andrews edged W. R. Myers 52-43. ST. LOUIS (AP) Calling Roxie Ann Rice "a-very good con woman" and describing football players as "extreme- ly a federal drug of- ficial discounted here Friday allegations by the young woman that she had acted as a drug courier for professional athletes. Thomas H. Maher, special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration here, said a thorough investigation showed there was nothing whatsoever to prove any of the drug charges made against National Foot- ball League players by the 19- year-old Miss Rice, whose two-month odyssey took her to 16 citjes. Miss Rice, described as an accomplished impersonator, "used" the NFL players she contacted in her travels pos- ing as a journalist and doctor from the African country of Ghana, Maher said at a news conference. Maher said "there are possible extortion possibilities" in the actions of Miss Rice and he said his of- fice's report would be sent within a week to the U.S. at- torney for possible action against her.

In Picture Butte, the Sugar Queens moved into a second Miss Rice is free on bail un- der charges of defrauding an innkeeper and, fraudulent use of a credit card, both mis- demeanors. She has been ordered to reappear in court on the charges March 3. The story of her alleged in- volvement in drug trafficking was leaked to the press two weeks after her arrest on the two charges in early January. According to a police memorandum, she detailed how she posed as a journalist and medical researcher from Ghana and travelled last season to give drugs to NFL players. There also were charges made involving the American Basketball Associa- tion which also were dis- counted by Maher. She alleged in the memo that she carried briefcases in which there were packets she believed to contain drugs. Posing as Dr. Andiza Juzang of Ghana, Miss Rice travelled to 16 cities beginning last November and said she met players from the Washington, Houston, St. Louis, San Diego, Detroit, Kansas City and Cin- cinnati teams. Some NFL players acknowledged meeting her, but denied any drug involvement. Maher said the young woman used players to get money. "She enticed people as a result of ruses. She would give them (the players) a Hard iuck story___I think the NFL people were extremely gullible. I think she (Miss Rice) was a very good con woman." When Miss Rice travelled among the NFL cities, Maher said, she telephoned players in advance. Cardston takes win in Regina REGINA four of the Saskatchewan entries in the 23rd Annual Luther In- vitational Basketball Tourna- ment dropped their opening round games Friday and fell into the consolation side of the two-day double knockout tournament. Saskatoon Holy Cross Crusaders were the first vic- tims as they dropped a 67-51 decision to Calgary Crescent Heights Cowboys. The three Regina entries, Campbell Tartans, the host Luther Lions, and Miller Marauders also lost their games. Campbell dropped a 54-49 decision to the Cardston, Alta., Cougars, the Lions were defeated 51-31 by defending champion Winnipeg Sisler Spartans and in the last game Friday night, the Marauders were beaten 52-46 by Winnipeg Dakota Lancers. The winners moved into the championship side and the losers into the consolation rounds. Calgary will take on Cardston and Sisler will play Dakota in the championship semi-finals with the winners to meet in the final tonight. The losers of that game will playoff for third place earlier today. The last Saskatchewan team to win the senior boys tournament was the Central Gophers of Regina in 1960. SPECIAL KIDS NIGHT!

Unassuming Bies slips into lead PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) There was a wistful quality to Don Bies' voice when he said: "I feel that somewhere .along the way I deserve to win one." He hasn't won a title in six full years on the professional golf tour. But the 37-year-old Bies took a major step in the right direction Friday when he slipped, almost un- observed, past Johnny Miller and into the third-round lead in the Bob Hope Desert golf tournament. Bies took his surprise lead with a six-under-par 66 that vaulted him one stroke in front of Miller and Tom Shaw. Bies had a 54-hoIe total of under par with 36 holes to go in this unique, five-day, 90-hole event that is spread over four desert courses. Miller, who established a three-stroke lead after two rounds and appeared ready to score another runaway vic- tory, and Shaw were at 205. Miller went to a scrambly par George Knudson of Toronto recovered from a 72 on Thurs- day with a 69 for 210. Arnold Palmer, still fighting a balky putter, shot a 71 and was seven shots behind at 211. Lee Trevino, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player are not competing. Miller, a record-setting win- ner of the first two tour- naments of the year and the young man who has dominated the game for the last 14 months, suddenly developed some problems but shrugged it off. "I'm he said. "I make mistakes, too." His putting, which had been unapproachable in the first two rounds, turned ordinary. He three-putted once. He made bogey from a bunker. He hit one out of bounds. Bies, who reached two par fives in two and holed birdie putts of 20, 15, 10 and 10 feet, admitted, however, it's still too early to think about win- ning.
