Davis and his mates put to- gether two solid performances Sunday afternoon and evening (D lay claim to the two events. In the1 final of number one Davis fell behind 4-0 after four ends to a stubborn Bob Morri- son of Lethbridge only to come back for a M victory. In the final of number two Lennon, last year's number one winner as well as grand champ, picked up a 3-0 lead but saw it quickly fade as Da- vis won 9-6. In his march to the event titles Davis showed little fa- voritism as he upended all comers. Ctilf Forry was Davis' vic- lim in the semi-final of num- ber one. Dans also defeated Garth Nilsson of Wrentham, Bud McAllister of Lethbridge, Hugh Brown of Calgary and Lou Maffioli of Fernie In the first event. In the number two Davis also used Brown as a stepping stone to reach the final. Morrison, on the other hand, defeated Richard Kanegawa of Taber in the other semi-final of number one. His other wins, in advancing to the final, came over Don Chandler of Loth- bridge, Enso Baceda of the city, Dave Russell of Milk River and Ed Kurtz of the host club. There was some consolation for Morrison and his mates as they won the number six Sven Ericksen event with an 8-7 win over Ed Moskulak of Leth- bridge in the final. For Morri- son it was his fifth game of the day Sunday. In the semi-final Morrison slopped Dave Forry of the cily while Moskulak downed Art Borzel of Letbbridgc. In the number three IjOth- bridge Herald event Russell and his Milk River foursome made up for earlier setbacks as they belted Ken Mamyama in the final. Russell advanced after beating Jack Gorrie in one semi-final while Maruya- ma bested Doug Baird of Cal- gary in the other. Gorrie is from the tost club. Baird, the 1970 number ono event winner as well as the grand a g g r e gate champion, came back from his loss in the number three event lo win the number four Canadian West- ern Natural Gas honors with a decisive 13-7 win over Gorrie in the final. Eaird gained the berth in the final by belling Dave Dietz of Milo while Gorrie had earlier dumped Jake Thiessen of Lelh- bridge.
