Clarke, the captain of the Flyers and the most valuable player to his team in 1972-73, fell to the ice but was quickly joined by Cummins who was pummelled by several of Clarke's team-mates.

(CP) The boys from Delisle, Sask., were demonstrating some su- perb shooting at the Canadian senior men's curling championship Sunday. But Newfoundland's representative, the St. John's rink led by Charles Doyle, was the biggest surprise. Saskatchewan, Newfound- land, Prince Edward Is- land and British Columbia were the only un- beaten teams headed into to- day's third round Although the Quebec and Nova Scotia teams may find it hard to believe, Saskatchewan skip Jim Hill doesn't think his rink is playing as well as it can. In their 10-1 win over the Hudson, Que., rink of Tom Hunter, Hill and company, mate Bert Coben, second John Kirton and lead Max Bentley, cleaned opposition rocks out of the house with deadly accuracy. They had troubles in the fifth and sixth ends of their game with Hugh Little's Halifax foursome but then settled down for a 10-6 victory. "The ice is good, we're -drawing well but I think we can play Hill said. The rink has been together for a year though Hill himself was in the 1970 seniors and has played with Kirton for a couple of years. Doyle guided his team to the upset of the competition, an 8- 7 win over defending champions, the Winnipeg Rink of Dr. Will McTavish. In the second round, New- foundland tripped Quebec 10- 5.

The best tussle of the session was a four-punch fight involving Montreal defenceman Larry Robinson and Dave Schultz of the Flyers. Robinson got in all the punches.

"This could be the game that turns us said coach Harry Howell of the Knights. "We're back on the beam again." "This was a great game for said centre Andre Lacroix. "Quebec is one team we have to beat to get into the playoffs... as long as we keep playing this way, we can make the playoffs." However, before the Knights start printing playoff tickets, they should take another look at Quebec's roster, depleted Sunday because of injuries. Among the missing were Alain Caron, with 26 goals, and Serge Bernier, 25 goals and 36 assists. Also out of Quebec's lineup were Jean- Guy Gendron, Jean Payette and Norm Descoteauz.
