Monday, February 14, 197J THE LETHBRIDGE HtRAlD 7 Brilliant effort by local foursome Davis and mates dominate Shirtsleeve By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer This has been some year of curling for Lethbridge's Lyle Davis. As of Sunday, Davis has turned in one of the biggest seasons in many years for a local skip. Earlier in the season he laid claim lo (.he District 2 men's title and followed by taking top honors in the mixed competi- WHA draft is over ANAHEIM, Calif. (CP-AP) The 12 founding clubs of the World Hockey Association spent the weekend building dream teams around the National Hockey League's established stars. The Toronto Globe and Mail reported that several WHA ex- ecutives, while declining to let their names used, said To- ronto Maple Leafs goalie Bernie Parent had already signed with the WHA's Miami Screaming Eagles. Parent was selected by the Eagles as one of the four play- ers on their pre-draft negotia- tion list. Each of the 12 teams had similar four-man lists ap- proved last Friday. Then they got down to the drafting which went for more than 71 rounds Saturday and Sunday with more than players picked from the NHL. from minor profes- sional and amateur teams and from Europe. Some of the biggest names hi the NHL, however, were drafted almost as a-n afterthought. ORR PICKED Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Vic Hadfiel'd, Jean Ratelle, Ken Hodge, Ed Giacomin and Tony Esposito were among the NHL stars picked up after the 70th round. The Dayton, Ohio, franchis appeared the most determinec not to let any of the stars g< un-noticed. After Winnipeg Jets had passed on the 71st round, Dayton selected another 43 play- ers including Orr, Phil Esposilo, Hadfield and Giacomin. The new league didn't confine its draft to active players either as the New York franchise gam- bled on recently-retired Phil Goyette of Buffalo Sabres and Winnipeg Jets picked Dick Duff, also a recent dropout from the Sabres roster. Even veteran all-star Gordie Howe, who retired last year after 25 seasons with Detroit Red Wings, was picked by Los Angeles Sharks. PATTERN APPEARS Tire Canadian clubs, Calgary Broncs, Edmonton Oil Kings, Winnipeg, Ontario and Quebec, appeared to be trying for estab- lished players well-known in their own areas. Graduates from Prairie junior hockey who wound up on the Calgary list included Maple Leaf centre Jim Harrison, de- fenceman Barry Gibbs of Min- nesota, Dale Hoganson of Mont- real. Gerry Finder of Los Ange- les Kings and Ross Lonsberry of Philadelphia Flyers. Centre Norm Ullman of the Leafs, an Edmonton Oil Kings junior grad, was the first pick of the Edmonton club which also grabbed centre Bobby Clarke and New York's Bruce pre-draft But Sunday was tar and away his best day to date.

By THE CANADIAN PRESS Fans often object to tie games in the National Hockey League but one of the big highlights and some of the best action came in deadlocked games during the weekend. One of the highlights was Rick Martin's 38th goal, scored in a 4-4 deadlock between Buf- falo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers Sunday. The goal tied the season record for a rookie, set last season by Buffalo team-mate Gil Perreault. Some of the best action was seen Sunday at Boston where Montreal Canadiens, despite being oulshot 41-18 by the Bruins, earned a 2-2 tie with the spectacular goaltending o f rookie Ken Dryden. In another tie game, Mickey Redmond, Detroit's new scoring leader, got his 34th goal of the Martin put himself on the season in Chicago Saturday to j brink o[ becoming the highest give the Red Wings a 3-3 saw- off with the Black Hawks.

Martin and Dryden, the top last week when Bruce Gamble contenders for the Calder Tro- phy as the season's outstanding rookies, each gave the trophy selectors food for thought Sun- day. oue same lead was sidelined by a heart attack. Flyers netminder Doug Favell was thrown out of the game with a misconduct sentence in the final minute of the second period after he argued with ref- eree John Ashley about a Buf- falo goal. His replacement, Don McLeod, suffered a knee sprain during the third period when he was knocked down by a team- mate and finished the game in obvious pain. At Boston, Drydcn was spec- tacular in stopping the Bruins with numerous saves on shots from close range. He was at his 'ying five days for Ihe Davis 'oursome. They won the number one )nerson Motors event, the number two Eaton's of Can- ada and with their 12-0 record won the James Aird Memorial Grand Aggregate. "We're just glad it is said Davis in the clubhouse of the Lethbridge Curling Club after his win over Lawrence Lennon of the city in the final of event number two. Davis and his males put to- gether two solid performances Sunday afternoon and evening to lay claim to the two events. In the: 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 9-7 victory. In -the final of number two Lennon, last year's number one winner as well as grand aggregate 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. Cliff Forry was Davis' vic- im in the semi-final of num- ber one. Daws also defeated Garth Nilsson of Wrentham, Bud McAllister of LeUibridge, Hugh Brown of Calgary and Lou Maffioli of Fenu'e 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 Leth- 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 stopped Dave Forry of the city while Moskulak downed Art Borzel of LeUibridge.
