Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 10, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 JOCK NAKAMURA DEL ANDREWS BOB LAGLER ALF MEHEDEN TERRY RHODES LLOYD CURRIE GERRY HAGA GAIL ATKINSON JOHN'WOLFE MEL JORDAN Kodiaks win one, lose one RED DEER (Special) season in convincing fashion The Lethbridge Community Saturday as they blitzed Red College Kodiaks rebounded Deer College Kings 119-77 in from their first loss of the an Alberta College Athletic One setback, Lukowich out THE CANADIAN PRESS Tom Reed and his young mates from St. Albert Sunday became the first western rink to qualify for the Canadian curling championships last month, nipping Roy Talbot of Red Deer to capture the Alberta championship at Ed- monton. Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia are at least one step behind Alberta in declaring a representative for the national final at Fredcricton, N.B. Reed emerged undefeated in the six rink Alberta round robin. He succeeds Hector Gervais of Edmonton as provincial champ. Gervais won his second Canadian title last year. Reed and his mates third Kevin Byrne, second Tony Rankel and lead Lome Reed averted a playoff with their victory. Ed Lukowich of Medicine Hat finished with four wins and one loss follow- ing a final round victory that left him in position if Reed faltered. However, Reed took advan- tage of misses by the veteran Talbot on the 10th and llth ends for a 10 7 victory. Talbot missed an open takeout to let Reed tie the score on the 10th with a single, then was heavy with a draw against three on the llth. PERFECT END The Reed crew curled the final end perfectly and ran Talbot out of rocks while five St. Albert stones remained in the rings. Congratulating the winner, Lukowich suggested: "It's a hard way to lose. We had only one bad game and Reed beat us and now we're out of it altogether."

Curling Club loses friend Despite the fact the 1975 Shirtsleeve Bon- spiel was a huge success, tragedy did strike the 36th annual affair. Bill Townsend, 68 years of age, died Thursday evening while playing Bernie Sonntag. Townsend was an avid sportsman throughout his life and became even more active after retiring in 1970. A familiar sight, with the ever present cigar, Townsend, when he was not at the golf course could be found at the curling rink. Both curling and golf will miss him. Coyne, Lagler share honors By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Some years back Paul Anka wrote a song called "The Longest Day" for a motion picture by the same name. Sunday afternoon at the Lethbridge Curling Club no one could blame Bernie Sonntag of Lethbridge if he and his rink hummed that very same tune. Sonntag and his mates played no less than five games Sun- day as the 1975 Shirtsleeve Bonspiel wrapped up, and came away with a pair of second place finishes. Sonntag had qualified for the finals of two events in the six- event 36th annual Shirtsleeve and after losing in the final of number one just didn't have the steam left for a run at the prizes in the number four. Meanwhile, Alf Lagler of Lethbridge and clubmate Gerry Coyne led the parade to the silverware Sunday evening. Lagler, with rinkmates Bob Lagler at third, Del Andrews at second and lead Jock Nakamura, edged Sonntag 8-6 in the final of the Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. event. Lagler's victory came as a result of an excellent shot with his last rock of the 10th end which gave him two and the victory. Lagler reached the final by downing Cliff Forry in the semi- final while Sonntag got past Glen Turner. In earlier games Sonntag, in his climb to the final, had defeated Fred Mensinger, Ed Kurtz, Bill Townsend and Roy Johnson. Lagler's earlier wins came at the expense of Garth Nillson, Bob Abbott, Bill Goodman and Gerry Coyne. For Coyne, it was his only loss of the bonspiei and his 9-1 record earned him .the grand aggregate as well as the Alberta Distillers event. With third Lloyd Currie, second Terry Rhodes and lead Fred Meheden Coyne stopped Dale Groves, a former Shirtsleeve champion, 9-6 in the final. Coyne advanced after trimming Mel Jordan while Groves got past Turner. It was a quick turn of events for Turner, with Terry Lyon skipping. Turner was the only unbeaten rink after play shutdown Saturday. Jordan, after losing to Coyne, took out his disappointment on Bill Karbashewski of Lethbridge in the Sven Ericksen final. Joined by John Wolfe at third, Gail Atkinson at second and Ivan Haga at lead, Jordan dumped Karbashewski 7-4. Jordan reached the final by downing Laddy Pavka of Taber while Kar- bashewski slipped past Torn Fukami of Picture Butte. Herb Beswick, and his rink of third Brian Hogan, second Jim Berezan and lead Greg Carlton, doubled the score on Sonn- tag in the Enerson Motors final, 10-5. Beswick, after defeating John Barrow of Milo in the semi- final had a long wait while Sonntag finished his game in the first event. The wait proved to be worth it. Sonntag, on the other hand, downed Al Takasaki in the other semi-final. Abbott and Enso Baceda locked horns in a tight struggle for the honors in the T. Eaton event and Abbott, with Milt Hayhurst at third, Bob Deal at second and lead Neil Quigley, emerged with a narrow 5-4 victory. Abbott won over Walt Hartman in one semi-final while Baceda sidelined John Virostek. In the Lethbridge Herald final Rod Arndt of Magrath nipped Forry 7-6 after reaching the final by stopping Alf Lagler. Forry downed Harvey Bourassa in his semi-final match. Playing with Arndt were skip Shig Nakagawa, Arndt at' third, Eric Hohm'at second and Dave Hofer at lead. A total of 64 rinks took part in the five-day event. WE MIGHT FIND ATREE ID CLIMB.'
