Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta & - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monday, February 12, 1973 Team went sour Pronahorns' CALGARY (Special) - University of Lethbridge Pronghoms were forced to split their weekend series against the University of Calgary Dinosaurs, but tilings didn't change much in their bid for the Canada West University Men's Basketball League championship title. II, doesn't matter how you look at it, the Pronghonis still need a pair of victories over the league-leading University of Alberta Golden Bears in their final game's of the season in Edmonton next weekend. Two losses on the weekend would have killed the Prtng-homs' bid for the title, but a 64-53 win Friday night eliminated that chance. The Pronghoms currently sport a 13-5 record while the Golden Bears are 15-3. If the Pronghoms should happen to defeat to the Bears twice next weekend, their better won-loss record against the Bears would give them the conference title. Meanwhile in Calgary Saturday night, the Pronghoms came up with one of their poorer showings of the year as they took the short end of a 64-51 Bcore against the Dinosaurs. Native Sons lose twice on weekend The Lethbridge Y's Men Native Sons couldn't quite put it all together and took it on the chin twice over the weekend. Saturday night the local boys dropped a 6-3 exhibition encounter to the Sabres in Fernie while Sunday the visiting Olds Cascades edged the Sons 3-2 in overtime in Central Alberta Junior "B" Hockey League play. In Fernie Saturday, the host Sabres racked up a 3-0 first period lead and extended it to 5-1 after the second. Albert Dumont, Derrick Blasco and Randy Joevanazzo tallied in a losing cause. Sunday, the Sons dropped a heart-breaking overtime loss to the Cascades before 200 local fans at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. The two teams battled to a 1-1 tie after the first period, but the Sons took a 2-1 edge after the second. Dumont tallied the first period marker for the Sons while Dan Radumske replied for the Cascades. Ray Heathcote came up with the lone second period goal for the Sons while Tom Murphy notched the equalizer in the final period. The game winning goal came on a power-play effort by Wayne Robertson with about a minute remaining in the sudden-death overtime period. '"['II have to admit wc were flat," commented coach Gary Bowie. "We didn't seem mentally prepared and played lousy," he added. Perhaps the word "lousy" is a little harsh in describing the Pronghoms' play, but they did in fact come up with a poor performance. During the 40 minutes of action, the Pronghoms managed only a 26 per cent shooting average from the outside and 73 per cent from the line. The Dinosaurs on the other hand, netted 39 per cent of their field goals and 53 per cent from the foul line. The hosts also nailed down 4& rebounds compared to the Pronghoms' 34. Phil Tollestrup led the Pronghoms' attack once again with 20 points while Dan Court chipped in with 15. Brent Farch managed 21 points for the Dinosaurs, who broke away from a 27-27 half' time deadlock. Meanwhile the U of L Prong-horns women's varsity basketball team managed a weekend split in their Canada West University Women's Basketball League doubleheader against the U of C Dinnies. Friday night the Pronghoms dropped a 53-45 decision to the Dinnies, but came back with a 56-37 win Saturday night. In Saturday's match, Leona Voth showed the way for the Pronghoms with 21 points while Raelene MacDonald hooped 14 in a losing cause. In other league games staged Saturday night, the University of Victoria Vikings and Vikettes emerged victorious in their respective home games. The Vikings broke away in the second half to down the University of British Columbia Thimderbirds 56-52 while the distaff Vikettes handed UBC Thunderettes a 47-40 thrashing, the first in 15 games for Thunderettes. At Saskatoon, the University of Alberta Golden Bears broke open a tight battle in the first ha3f and dropped University of SaskatcheAvan Huskies 84-56 while the Huskiettes shaded the Pandas 47-34. Wallace Tollestrup led the Bears' with 18 points in the win. LOLICH RICH . DETROIT (AP) - Mickey Lolich has joined the select group of major league baseball pitchers making $100,000 or more a year, the.Detroit News reported in its Sunday edition. The newspaper said it had learned Lolich signed a contract with Detroit Tigers which calls for a $20,000 raise to $100,000 a year. That would put the pitcher on a par with outfielder Al Kaline, whose $100,000 contract with Detroit has been extended into 1973. RICK ERVIN photo* 'Mr. Consistency Curt Wolsey (25), "Mr. Consistency" with the Lethbridge Community College Kodi-aks this year, did it again Saturday as he hooped 22 points and was a continual burr under the saddle to Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans. Kodiaks, with Wolsey leading the way, dumped th e Trojans 95-77. Looking on is Greg Ross (15) of the Kodiaks. Alberta Major League adopts pinch-hit rule RED DEER (Special) - The Alberta Major Baseball League announced Saturday it has adopted, on a one-year-trial basis, the new designated pinch-hitter rule and has niled that pitchers deliver the ball every 15 seconds. League commissioner R u s s Parker, of Calgary, said that application of the designated pinch-hitter rule will "get another player into the game." "We don't need any more runs as we averaged 11 per game last season with 18 hits in each game, so we have plenty of offensive," added Parker. "But, if for no other reason, it will allow managers to make use of other players who may not always be in the starting line-up." Parker said that requiring the pitcher to deliver the ball every 15 seconds instead of every 20 seconds, could shave 10 to 15 minutes off the length of a game. "We're going to see the rules strictly enforced," he said, "What will happen is that the pitcher who normally delivers every 20 seconds now will be doing it in 15 seconds, the pitcher who normally throws every 15 seconds will be delivering every 10 seconds, and so on." The league again will operate with six teams - Calgary Jimmies, Calgary Giants, Lethbridge Lakers, Red Deer Elks, Cougars lose consolation REGINA (Special) - Lethbridge Catholic Central Cougars dropped a narrow 57-51 decision to Regina Thorn Collegiate in the 21 annual Regina Luther Brvitaifctomial Boys' Basketball Tournament consolation final and came home empty-handed on the weekend. In terms of hardware the Cougars came away nothing, but experience wise, they learned a lot. Edmonton Tigers and another Edmonton club, as yet unnamed, which will- replace the Blue Willows. A 28-game schedule has been adopted. Giants will play the opening game in Lethbridge May 22. Defending champions, the Jimmies, play host to Red Deer and the two Edmonton clubs clash on May 24. The best of three semi-finals will open July 31 with the best of seven finals to begin Aug. 4. Parker said arrangements are mealing completion to have the league champion compete in the National Baseball Congress championships in Wichita, Kan., in mid-August. He added that the league again will register with the Alberta Baseball Association, making its champion eligible for the Canadian senior championship.
