The Elks, who captured the best-of-three semi-final series in two straight games, will now wait for the winners of the Lethbridge Kinsmen Warriors Vauxhall Hornets series for the division final. In Coleman Saturday, the Hornets went down fighting and didn't look at all like the club that lost 17-3 in the series openef last Wednesday. The Cascades opened the scoring on George Mestinsek's goal early in the first period, but Joe Meli and Bob Miles rallied back to give the Elks a 2-1 lead going into the second period.

Bemie Syrenne and Ron Mos er potted single markers to give the Elks a 4-2 margin with 20 minutes remaining in the game. Baden Pilling extended the Elks' lead to 5-2 in the third period and then watched John Yanota complete the scoring in the game with the Cascades final goal. The Elks also picked xtp 11 of 20 minor penalties called during the three periods. 50-30 and the Griffins 49-11 and 46-15. If the Clipper Queens would have lost just one game in the series, they would have been forced into a playoff match at a later date. In Saturday's contest, Debby Borzel led the Clipper Queens with 14 points while teammate Davlyn Last chipped in with eight. Gail Blanchard managed eight points in a losing cause. The Clipper Queens, who sport an 18-2 record for the season, will now wait to defend their provincial championship title in Salisbury March 9-10.

By THE CANADIAN PRESS New York Rangers, who tied a club record Saturday winning their 10th straight game, had to settle for a tie Sunday and looked on the feat as a loss. "It was like we had lost," said all-star defenceman Brad Park after Montreal Canadiens rallied in the third period for a 2-2 tie to maintain a four-point lead over the Rangers in the National Hockey League's East Division race. The Canadiens appeared set to roll over and die through most of the game until Frank Mahovlich brought them alive early in the third on the power play and Chuck Lefley scored with his team shorthanded at the 10:47 mark. Mahovlich's score ended New York's shutout streak of 255 minutes and 53 seconds, stretch ing over three games and parts of two others. BIG M GIVES LIFT "Mahovlich's goal gave them a lift," said Emile Francis, Rangers general manager coach. "But we had no one to blame but ourselves for the ty ing goal." . That was Lefley's. Park's shot from the point was blocked by Montreal defenceman Guy Lapointe and the two defensive aces took after the puck as it rolled into the New York end. Ranger goalie Ed Giacomin sprawled to smother the puck as Park and Lapointe struggled for possession. The puck came loose, and Lei'ley, following on the play, slid it into the ung uarded New York goal. Elsewhere the scores were: Boston Bruins 2 Los Angeles Kings 0; Detroit Red Wings 5 Buffalo Sabres 2: Atlanta Flames 3 California Golden Seals 1; Minnesota North Stars 6 Vancouver Canucks 3 and Chicago Black Hawks 7 Phila delphia Flyers 2. The Rangers posted their third successive 6-0 victory of the week Saturday, over New York Islanders, St. Louis Blues toppled California 5-2, Montreal edged Buffalo 2-1, Boston downed Pittsburgh Penguins 6-3 and Los Angeles turned back Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2. Tuesday night the Islanders are at Philadelphia, Vancouver in Boston and Los Angeles at St. Louis against the Blues who have won nine and lost only one of their last 13 games. "I saw Eddie coming out for the puck," Lapointe said in the ,ubilant Montreal dressing room, "and took a dive. Meanwhile in the WHA goaltender Pete Donnelly of New York Raiders was so embarrassed he "didn't know what to think." , One wonders how Gavin Kirk of Ottawa Nationals felt after he failed to score on Donnelly-minus his stick-during the embarrassing situation? Or how about Minnesota Fighting Saints who blew a five- ALI 8-1 PICK LAS VEGAS (Reuter) - Las Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy (The Greek) Snyder Saturday made Muhammad All an overhwelm-ing 8-1 favorite to beat European heavy weight champion Joe Bugner In their 12 round non title fight here next Wed-neaday. __ _ -- - SPECIAL FRONT-END ALIGNMENT ��M NOW ONLY ............ ............
