Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Monday, February 11, 1974 Cougars close ground on Cleveland Crusaders By NEIL CAMPBELL Canadian Press Staff Writer Weekend victories over the World Hockey Association's two last-place teams brightened the playoff picture for Chicago Cougars. A 4-2 win over Los Angeles Sharks Sunday night and a 5-2 triumph Saturday over New Jersey Knights left the Cougars four points behind Cleveland Crusaders, who occupy fourth place in the East Division. Chicago has played only 50 games and lost 23 of them while the Crusaders have lost Green comes back to capture title PALM DESERT, Calif. (AP) Hubert Green came from three strokes off the pace with a sparkling seven- under-par 65, swept past faltering Bert Yancey and gained his first major share of national attention with a two- stroke victory Sunday in the Bob Hope Desert Golf tournament. Green's 341 total for 90 holes, spread over five days and four desert golf courses, was 19 under par and provided him with his fourth title in as many years on the pro tour. Yancey, the leader since he fired an incredible, 11-under- par 61 Friday on the same, Indian Wells Country Club course, finished second. He had a final 70 for 343. George Knudson of Toronto had a final round of 67 for a total of 350 and a two-way tie for eighth place with Dwight Nevil. Knudson earned John Mahaffey came on to take third with a 67 final round for a 347 total, six back of the leader. Johnny Miller, the 26-year- old U.S. Open champion who won the first three tournaments this year, made one brief run at the leaders but had his troubles down the stretch and finished in a tie for fourth at 349. Miller, who has an unbroken string of 20 consecutive rounds at par or better, had a closing 70. He was tied with Bob Murphy and rookies Mark Hayes and Mike McCullough. Murphy romped in with a 66, McCullough had 67 and Hayes 68. Arnold Palmer, the 44-year- old defending champion, never really got in it. He finished with 362 total, two over par for the tournament. Green collected for the victory and vaulted past idle Jack Nicklaus into second place on the season's money- winning list with a total. Swift Current leads in east By The CANADIAN PRESS Swift Current Broncos took sole possession of first place in the Western Canada Hockey League's Eastern Division during the weekend while Flin Flon Bombers climbed into a tie for second place with Regina Pats. The Bombers, playing on home ice, defeated the Pats 4- 2 Saturday and 3-2 Sunday. The Bronco's victory in their ione.weekend game was a triumph Sunday over Edmonton Oil Kings., In other games, the Oil Kings and Medicine Hat Tigers played to a 2-2 tie. Saskatoon Blades blasted Kamloops Sentinels and the touring Brandon Wheat Kings lost a pair, 5-4 to Victoria Cougars and 7-2 to New Westminster Bruins. The results leave Calgary Centennials, who had the weekend off, still on top of the WesternDivision with 62 points. New Westminster is close behind with 59. Flin Flon 4 Regina 2 At Flin Flon Sunday, Marty Mathews scored the game- winning goal at of the second period, on a three-way passing combination with Al Hitlier and Cam Connor.

Flin Flon 3 Regina 2 In the Saturday match, Blair Davidson scored the game-winning goal at of the third period and Rob Watt added an insurance marker with less than two minutes to play. Swift Current 9 Edmonton 3 The Broncos came on strong in the second period of their game, scoring three unan- swered goals to put matters out of Edmonton's reach. Stu McClellan and Don Lar- way both scored twice for Swift Current in the rough game that featured 106 minutes in penalties. Seven major penalties were called for fights in the last two periods.

Before the weekend wins, the Cougars were in last place, one point behind the Knights. At Los Angeles Sunday, goals by Rick Morris, Brian Coats and Darryl Maggs in the first nine minutes got the Cougars off on the right foot. In Sunday's other games, Quebec Nordiques edged the slumping Edmonton Oilers 4- 3, Winnipeg Jets tied Houston Aeros 2-2, the Toros edged the Knights 5-4 and Minnesota Fighting Saints topped New England Whalers 5-2. Cleveland edged Toronto 4-3 in Saturday's only other game. Nordiques 4 Oilers 3 General manager Bill Hunter blamed a series of injuries for Edmonton's tailspin. Oilers' record has been the worst in the league since they began the season with 12 wins in 13 out- ings. Hunter also blamed a ref- eree's call in part, for Sunday's loss. He protested a penalty call made by referee Ray Thomas after Thomas consulted with a linesman. Hunter argued that league rules prohibit a linesman from calling a penalty. Serge Bernier scored the winning goal for Quebec early in the third period.

Norwich strike Ted Mac- Dougal took a gift goal after 25 minutes when Sheffield captain Eddie Colquhuon failed to clear properly. David Stringer made it 2-0 in the 40 minute with a close-in header from a corner. Sheffield fought back hard but had to wait until four minutes from time for a consolation goal in front of fans when Ted Hemsley scooped the ball over Kevin Keelan's head as the keeper raced out- Manchester United worked hard to please the huge crowd at their Old Trafford Stadium, but they were generally outmanoeuvred by Leeds. With Leeds building up considerable pressure, Mick Jones put them in front in the 57th minute when he side- footed home from close range to complete a precision move, involving Pete Lorimer, Allan Clarke and Paul Madeley. Three minutes from the final substitute Joe Jordan made itr2-0 when he ran onto a through ball from Norman Hunter and steered his shot past goalkeeper Alex Stepney. Other First Division games: Newcastle 5 Coventry 1 After a fairly uneventful first half, in which Newcastle lead 1-0 through an own goal by Coventry forward John Craven, the game burst into life.

Then Newcastle took a three- goal lead in the 71st minute with yet another own goal, this time by Alan Dougdale. In the 80th minute, John Tu- dor got up by the far post to head a fine goal from a centre by Terry Hibbitt and three minutes later Malcolm MacDonald netted from about 2 yards for 5-0. A minute later Coventry se- cured a well-merited con- solation goal when Brian Alderson rose to head in superbly from a long centre. Burnley 0 Ipswich 1 Ipswich slipped into third place in the table with the help of a lone goal five minutes be- fore half-time through wing- half Peter Morris. He jumped on a bad clearance and hit the ball home from 20 yards. The Burnley forwards pressed hard for an equalizer but left big gaps behind them and only superb work by goalkeeper Alan Stevenson prevented Ipswich going farther ahead. Chelsea 1 Man City 0 Chelsea's forward line, par- ticularly Charlie Cooke and Bill Garner, always looked dangerous in front of goal, with City's defence sometimes badly stretched. But it was veteran Chelsea defender Dave Webb who got the only goal in the seventh minute. City goalkeeper Keith Macrae beat put a free kick by John Hollins. But the ball ran loose onto the left wing where Garner crossed and the unmarked Webb headed in.
