Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday. February 17, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAlO - IS Hull remains hot for Jets Canucks come alive, stop Flames Joe Seam ing to need to Lethbridge C set for Sunday afternoon Crucial shot an left, and Gower Kennedy discuss just how much ice Seaman is go-make this crucial shot during Shirtsleeve bonspiel action Friday at the ling Club. Ploy continues today all day with the semi-finals and finals The 1973 edition of the Lethbridge Curling Club's Shirtsleeve Bonspiel is fast approaching the home stretch. Sixty - four southern Alberta and B.C. rinks opened play Wednesday evening in the five-day event which wraps up Sunday afternoon. The semi-finals are set for a 3 p.m. start with the iinais in all six events to follow at 5:15. Action Friday saw 16 rinks advance in the number two Lethbridge Herald event. Enso Baceda, Garth Pilling, Wayne Mclennan, Scott Henderson, Alf Lagler, Wayne Terriff, Ray Hartman, Cliff Forry and Terry Toivenan of Lethbridge advanced along witih Ken Seto- guchi and Ken Maruyama of Taber, John Barron of Picture Butte, Harvey Bourassa of Fort Macleod, Aubrey Gore of Milo, and former Shirtsleeve champ Dale Groves of Champion. Pilling meets Baceda, McLennan takes on Henderson, Seto-guchi plays Maruyama, Gore takes on Lagler, Terriff tangles with Barron, Hartman matches shots with Bourassa, Scott and Forry meet as do Groves and Toivenan. Meanwhile, eight rinks kept their slates clean after two days of action at the Curling Club and advanced to the eights of the number one T. Eaton event. Eight rinks are also in the running in the number three Cana- dian Western Natural Gas event. John Virostek, Enso Baceda, Cliff Forry, Scott Henderson, Wayne Terriff and Orest File-wych all of the host club remained unbeaten as did Harvey Bourassa of Fort Macleod and Ray Jordan of Vulcan. In this morning's action Virostek was to meet Jordan while Bourassa matched shots with Baceda. In the other games Forry took on Henderson while Filewych met Terriff. In the number three action rinks skipped by' Tom Henderson, Bob Morrison and Wayne McLennan of Lethbridge joined foursomes skipped by Don Chandler of Edmonton, Ken Maruyama and Ken Setoguchi of Taber, Tom Geronazzo of Trail, B.C. and Bob Scott of Fort Macleod have reached the eight's. Setoguchi was drawn against Scott, Henderson with McLennan, Morrison with Maruyama and Geronazzo battled Chandler in this morning's opening draw. Four rinks advanced as far as the eight's in the number /ive Sven Ericksen event Thursday. Don Tillotson of Lethbridge joined with Bill Townsend of the city, Fritz Pavka of Taber and Bill Nayha of Picture Butte. The only match - up in the fifth event was Townsend and Pavka. Tillotson and Nayha were awaiting their opponents from this morning's action. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Vancouver Canucks, far removed from the National i Hockey League's playoff scene, thwarted Atlanta Flames' efforts to move ahead Friday night. The Canucks, a distant sixth in the East, made it easy for goaltender Ed Dyck to post his first career shutout with offensive support from five different players to swamp Atlanta 5-0. The loss temporarily halted the Flames' bid to climb into fourth place in the West, a spot currently held by St. Louis Blues.v In the only other scheduled gaime, Detroit Red Wings were held to a 2-2 tie at Oakland by the lowly California Golden Seals, leaving them one point behind fourth-place Buffalo Sabres in the East. The Flames continue their west coast trip tonight at Los Angeles Kings while St. Louis is at home to Chicago Black J Hawks. ! In other games, Vancouver entertains Detroit, Philadelphia Flyers are at Montreal Cana-diens, New York's Islanders at Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins visit Minnesota North Stars and Pittsburgh Penguins host Buffalo. CANUCKS IN CHARGE .. Montreal visits Toronto for an afternoon contest Sunday while Boston moves into Chicago, I Pittsburgh is at Buffalo, Minnesota at Philadelphia, Los Angeles at California and the Islanders meet the Rangers in a New York matchup. At Vancouver, the Canucks, who trail Buffalo by 29 points, held the Flames in check as only 18 shots get through to Dyck. The Canucks, meanwhile, kept the pressure on Atlanta goalie Phil Myre throughout and spread their goals evenly between Bobby Lalonde Gerry O'Flaherty, John Wright, Don Tanmahill and Dale Tallon. After a scoreless first period at Oakland, Morris Mott's third goal of the year sent California into the lead. Red Berenson and Marcel Dionne put the Red Wings ahead, Dionne's coming at 4:23 of the third period. But 24 seconds later, Craig Patrick tallied the equalizer moments after California's Walt McKechnie and Thommie Bergman of the Red Wings were chased with fighting majors. Bobby Hull is still hot, so is goaltender Joe Daley, and Winnipeg Jets are turning the World Hockey Association's Western Division race into a runaway. Hull scored two goals Friday night, Daley posted his second shutout in three games and the Jets romped to a 7-0 victory over Houston to stretch their lead atop the division to 11 points over the Aeros. In other games, Philadelphia Blazers spotted New York a two-goal lead and rebounded for a 9-2 win over the Raiders and Los Angeles Sharks blew a two-goal lead and had to settle for a 2-2 tie with Les Nordiques. The Blazers, all but counted out of the post-season games early in January, scored six unanswered goals in' the second period and breezed to an easy decision to move within a point of third-place New York in the Eastern race. Hull, with 14 goals in the Jets' last seven games and 38 for the season to tie Chris Bordeleau for the team lead, also picked up two assists-on goals by Bor- deleau and Ab McDonald's second of the game. Light-scoring Bill Sutherland also had two goals in the game as Daley, who has allowed only one goal in three games and taken over as No. 1 goalie from Ernie Wakely, performed brilliantly in front of 6,547 Winnipeg fans. The two teams meet again in Winnipeg Sunday night while the Blazers entertain Los Angeles and Chicago Cougars are in St. Paui against Minnesota's Fighting Saints. Tonight Cleveland Crusaders Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey are at home to Minnesota with New England Whalers in Quebec and Ottawa Nationals at Chicago. Hull missed adding to his total when referee Ron Sloan called back a first-period score he ruled Hull had directed into the net with his skate. The official wiped out another Hull goal when the Golden Jets' blueline blast went through Houston goaltender Don McLeod's pads just as the second period ended. Limdbreck bouts go this evening iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii HPHE VERY RICHES that have made the Montreal Cana-diens roster the envy of the National Hockey League soon may prove to be the Habitants' downfall. Too many of the unused and unhappy Habs want more ice time and know they will get it only in the World Hockey Association. A close friend of sophomore prodigy Guy Lafleur tells me that Guy will eventually sign a 10-year contract with the WHA's Quebec Nordiques and will be in Les Nordiques' lineup next September. Another Hab likely to make the leap is crack left wing Marc Tardif and a few others are expected to follow. Def'enseman Dale Hoganson already has made the move. Once regarded as the weak sister of the WHA, Quebec has emerged as a dynamic franchise which can only get stronger. The addition of a i'ew French-Canadian former Cana-diens can only help; not to mention the anticipated signing of Maple Leafs goalie Jacques Plante as Nordiques G. M.' next season. Le Colisee (The Coliseum) in Quebec attracts solid if not overwhelming crowds for Nordiques' games and next year, with a stronger club, should sell more than 7,000 season tickets. Although the Nordiques currently have only one ex-NHLer in defenseman J. C. Tremblay, they have remained a contender thanks to the brilliant and often tough coaching of Maurice Filion and the superb goaltending of Serge Aubry. Tremblay, despite some harsh criticism from Rocket Richard, has frequently played 40 minutes and sometimes 50 minutes of a game. When Tom Johnson was given the "hook" by the Boston Bruins on February 5th, only the fans and the partisan Bean-town press were surprised. Ever since taking over the 'Hub hockey reins, Johnson, who never had coached before, was unable to control the likes of Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr who have been earning more than ten times what Johnson obtained in his paycheck. Discipline had become a joke among Bruins Insiders and one wonders whether it will be possible for Johnson's successor, Armand "Bep" Guidolin, to achieve any semblance of order out of the chaotic Bruins behind-the-scenes situation. Who can expect the Bruins to display any more respect for Guddolin if they couldn't be led by Hall of Fanner Johnson? Essentially, the Bruins are led by Orr and Esposito. If either or both of these super-superstars turns against the coach all the king's horses and the king's men won't be able to straighten things out again. What better proof than the deposing of Johnson? Last season he did what every hockey coach dreams of doing but rarely achieves; he finished first in his division and won the Stanley Cup. But look at him now. The boxing fans in the Lund-breck area are in for the treat of their lives this evening when the Lundbreck amateur boxing club presents its first card of the year at 8 p.m. in the Livingstone School gym. The main event of the evening will be a rematch, between 1972 Alberta 147-pound champion Carmen Rinke of the Lethbridge boxing club and Dean Kramarek, runner-up in the United States Olympic eliminations, from Great Falls, Montana. Kramarek and Rinke met in a bruising slugfest in one of the best fights seen in Lethbridge for quite some time late last year with the American fighter getting the narrowest of decisions. The rematch promises to be another battle royal. The semi-windup on the 15-bout card should aJso prove to be a crowd pleaser. Gary Be-atty of Calgary, the Alberta light - middleweight champion last year will clash with Mike O'Leary. O'Leary, a fighting Irishman from Great Falls, won the Montana light-middleweight honors last year. Referee for the card will be former amateur great Max Gibb and will feature fighters representing amateur clubs from Lethbridge, Calgary, Great Falls, Pincher Creek, Lundbreck and Brocket. The Lundbreck club will have eight boxers on the program. r SPORTS FANS: I CASTLE Patronize these Pincher Creek merchants Foothills Auto Service Ud. Foothills Motel Thornton and Sons. Furniture ltd.

Shots on goal by Detroit ............. * 1 10-27 California......... ... 11 9 8-28 Keke Mortson, the Houston Aeros right wing, is one of the -better story-tellers in hockey. His favorite subject is Phil Watson, coach of the Philadelphia Blazers and for whom Mortson played when Phil coached the Quebec Aces in the mid-sixies. "Watson," says Mortson, "must have had a special duct in one eye that enabled him to put on a crying act at the snap of a finger. Many's the time that the tears just dropped from this one eye as he gave us some kind of sob story." According to Deke, Watson would come up with one verbal "line" per game. After one triumph, Phil marched into the dressing room with a proud smile on his face. "He thanked us for winning the game for his wife." Mortson remembers. "For your wife?" We said, "who're you kidding? We won this one for ourselves." Whatever Watson may be telling the Blazers must have some positive effect because Philly's WHA club has recovered enough from its early season disaster to at least be compe-tive and a possible playoff threat. Perhaps the best explanation is the genuinely hard and competent play of Johnny McKenzie. Unlike Derek Sanderson, McKenzie really has earned his money from the Blazers.
