Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOC HERALD 1! Mismatch at College reads 132-61 Kodiaks romp past Mount Royal Cougars Hess scores MIJSS hit for points Friday night as the y Kbdiaks belted Mounb Royjj in in action. By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor If it had been a prize fight it would have been stopped in the fourth round. The Mount Royal College Cougars must have felt they were playing in a bomb shelter that leaked. They were, to put it mildly, blitzed. Cougars, unbeaten in Al- berta College Athletic Con- ference basketball action, ran into a red-hot Lethbridge Community College Kodiak basketball club and were left shaking their heads at the end of the encounter. Kodiaks, with a new-look for the second half of the sched- ule, ran roughshod over the Cougars 132-61 in the one- sided contest that had been billed as the game of the year. It was the game of the year, but only for the Kodiaks as they ran their season mark to 7-1. Their only loss came at the hands of the Cougars and that setback was by a mere three; points. Jack Kenyon, coach of the Cougars, left the LCC court in a state of disbelief. Four times this year, including tournaments, the Cougars have held the upper hand over the Kodiaks. Such was not the case Friday. As a matter of fact, it was the exact opposite. Meanwhile, foul trouble cost the LCC a sweep of games with Mount Royal as the Kodiettes dropped a 76-64 decision to the Kittens. In. the Kodiak-Cougar con- test, the writing began to ap- pear on the wall- in the first half as the club jumped into a 28-12 lead with 10 min- utes gone, in the game and then proceeded to rub salt in the Cougar wounds. Hitting a solid 50 per cent of their shots from the field, 61 of 122, the Kodiaks took a 53-25 lead into the dressing room at halftime and toyed with the Cougars the rest of the way. Coach Ben Brooks of the Kodiaks was elated. The win, which Brooks described as the biggest of the year, puts the Kodiaks in the driver's seat as hosts for the ACAC championships. "That congratulations from all directions. Pronghorns give Bears solid fight in loss The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns gave the league-leading University of Alberta Golden Bears a run for their money, but that's about all as they dropped a narrow 93-83 decision to the Edmonton squad Friday night. The hard-fought victory was number 14 for the Bears, who lead the Canada West University Men's Basketball _.eague with an attractive 14-1 2cord. On the other hand, it was the ronghorns" llth loss in 15 outings and leaves them in ifth place in the six-team Meanwhile in last night's encounter, the 10-point margin of victory doesn't ally show the closeness of le 40-minute match. The locals started out luickly as usual and mustered a slim lead which lasted for mly 18 minutes cf the 20- ?inute first half. They seemed to tire during e final two minutes and sat back as the Bears recorded a 48-43 margin going into the final halt. The two clubs battled end- to-end throughout the better part of the final 20 minutes of play and the locals only trailed 83-79 with 60 seconds remaining. But at this crucial moment. Pronghorns' sharp- shooting Phil Letham was fouled out of the game which extracted an uproar from his bench. The Pronghorns were assessed two technical fouls for their unsportsman-like behavior. Bears' Terry Valeriote calmly swished four free throws in-a-row and put the game out of reach for the hosts. The Bears were awarded four free throws since they were on the bonus rule at the time. Valeriote netted 15 points in the match and was second high scorer only to Tom Solyom who hooped 27. Stampede Wrestling Taber Civic Centre Monday, Fib. p.M. N.A.

The host Griffins, who recently captured the 1973-74 Brooks gals' tourney, had their share of problems in their successful outing against the SWCHS Bulldogs. The locals, who trailed 6-4 after the opening quarter, seemed unable to find the range in the eight-minute period and missed on at least a dozen fine opportunities. They finally "settled down somewhat in the second quarter and turned their two- point deficit into a four-point lead. The Bulld9gs came back in the second half and managed to cut their deficit to 15-13, but a third quarter surge by the Griffins killed their chances for the tourney crown. Diane Turner led the Griffins' attack with six points while Gail Blanchard and Deb Bosch chipped in with four apiece., Barb Stewart and Jill Walters hopped six points each in a losing cause. The CCHS Kittens, who are the newlycrowned city gals' champions, had an easy time of things last night as they literally blasted Invermere Lakettes.

The Nobleford Bladettes jumped to a 14-1 lead after eight minutes of play and went on to dump the Lindsay Thurber Kittens by eight points. The Bladettes were never headed in the end-to-end tilt as they carried quarter leads of and 24-22. Carolyn Sjorgen was outstanding for the Bladettes notching 18 big points, while Karen Grieb sunk 13 points in a losing cause.
