Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ TWI VMAID r, Hbrviry i IBlackstrap overcomes hurdle AFTERMATH Two Buffalo players ore on the ice McCreary during Thursday night's National Hockey and the puck is in the net, put there by Pittsburgh's Keith League game. Scores 850th goal of career Gordie Howe has done it again By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gordie Howe has done it again. For the 22nd consecutive National Hockey League season, he has scored 20 goals or more. Thursday night, his 20th goal this season was the winner as Detroit Red Wings beat Minne- sota North Stars 5-3. Howe's goal was the 850th of his NHL career. He has been in the league for 25 seasons. The big total counts playoffs. In reg- ular-season play, he has 783. In the only other game Thurs- day, Buffalo Sabres fought to a 6-6 tie with Pittsburgh Pen- guins. Detroit's victory pulled them out of the East Division cellar. They now are one point ahead of the idle Vancouver Canucks and one behind the Sabres. Face Red Deer Saturday night Kings face big weekend The Lethbridge Sugar Kings vrill play perhaps their two most important Alberta Junior Hockey League games this weekend as they have a chance to grab a share of first spot with only two weeks remaining in the season. Currently the Red Deer Rust- lers lead the six-team league but are hard pressed by the Kings who trail the leaders by two points. Saturday night the Kings host the Rustlers while Sunday Pon- oka pays a visit. Saturday's game goes at the Arena at Sunday the game is set for 2 p.m. The Kings will be in good health this weekend with the ex- Two weeks left in hoop league The Southern Alberta "A" Boys Basketball Lea2ue is com- ing to a fast end with only two weeks remaining. Tonight the pennant winning Raymond Comets will host tha Catholic Central Cougars while the Magrath Zeniths mil travel to Jledicine Hat to face the Mohawks. In Lethbridge the LCI Rams v.ill host the Cardston Cougars vho were eliminated from a play-off berth last weekend. The Comets cinched up the league with a 8-0 record and have only two games remain- ing. Meanwhile the battle for sec- ond spot will prove to be some- thing as the Rams and the Zen- iths have identical 5-3 records. If both clubs come up with a victory tonight the second will be decided next weekend. The Rams and the Zeniths will face each other in their final league game. Meanwhile the CCHS Cougars sit alone in third place with a 4-4 record but their chances of finishing in that snot are slim. Their only possible hope is if either the Rams or the Zeniths drop both their remaining games and if they win both theirs. The best the Cardston Coug- ars could do is to finish with a fifth place tie in the six-team league. Currently they hold a 2-6 record and chances are the Medicine Hat Mohawks won't catch them.

The Penguins also staged a rally and went ahead 6-5 in the final period before Don Mar- shall got his second goal on the night to gain the tie for Buffalo. Penguins' rookie Rod Zaine also scored twice and his second goal at of the third period appeared to be the winner be- fore Marshall's tally at The Penguins were up against a tough goaltender in Roger Crozier who stopped 36 shots. Pittsburgh netminder Les Sink- ley made only 22 saves. DETROIT S MINNESOTA 3 First Period 1. Minnesota, 13 (Goldsworthy, Grant) 2.

A fire which de- stroyed snow-making equip- ment, a concession booth and other apparatus almost dealt a death blow to skiing competi- tion. The lire broke out Thurs- day night after the athletes had left the site. (Xficials said cool weather, forecast to continue into the weekend, means snow making won't be necessary. Unusually mild weather had threatened to disrupt skiing events at the man-made moun- tain, 23 miles south of here. However, cooler weather and some snow spread into the area Tuesday night and Blackstrap was saved as a ski area. In Thursday's action, Ontario took the 50-kilometre cross- country event when Malcolm Hunter of Ottawa was first across the line. Rolf Peter sen of Prince George, B.C., was second for the silver medal and David Rees of North Bay, Ont., took the bronze. N.W.T. UP THERE Northwest Territories skiers, expected to be the big guns in the event, took five of the next six positions. After Thursday's activity, On- tario led the medal parade with 28 gold followed by British Col- umbia with 18 and Manitoba with seven. Today, the Firth twins, Shir- ley and Sharon, of Inuvik, N.W.T., are expected to pick up gold and silver medals in cross- country. Gold medals also will be handed out today in gymnastics with Quebec considered the powerhouse of the competition. Gymnastic medals were awarded Thursday night lor the women's team aggregate with Ontario first, Quebec second and British Columbia third. Tiny Midori Fajiwara, 12, of Toronto was taken to hospital with a neck injury after falling to the Door while doing a diffi- cult cartwheel on the balance beam. Her injury was not consi- dered serious, but she will he unable to compete in the final events loday. PASSES OUT Another hospital case was Jeff Reid, 16, a Winnipeg high- school student in the cross-coun- try skiing. He completed only 10 kilometres of the 15-kilometre course before he passed out and was taken to hospital. He was later released. In hockey competition, On- tario, Quebec and Nova Scotia emerged undefeated with 3-0 won-loss records. Ontario trimmed a weak Yukon club 16-2, ouUhooting them 71-13. Quebec beat Prince Edward Island 6-2 in a penalty- filled game in which the Island- era showed that they can fight but not score. Nova Scotia upset British Col- umbia 4-2 thanks to good goal- tending by George Mason and handy goalposts which the West Coast team hit five times. In other games, Alberta knocked off Manitoba 7-5, New- foundland beat New Brunswick 6-3 and hometown favorite Sas- katchewan beat Northwest Ter- ritories 10-3 after trailing 1-0 at the end of the first period. Hockey pleases palrous Never a dull moment By GERRY SUTTON SASKATOON (CP) Hockey at the Canada Winter Games may not be the highest calibre in the world, but it's never dull. Consider these oddities in Thursday's action: pulled its goalie foui' times while losing to Al- berta 7-5. Northwest Territories player got two minor penal- ties in less than a minute. goalie Doug Atkinson received three minor penalties. first penalty shot of the Games went to Newfound- land's Randy Pearcey and he missed it, shooting into the goalie's pads. in the course of shellacking the Yukon 16-2, fired 71 shots on goal. Columbia hit the goal post five times while los- ing 4-2 to Nova Scotia. game misconducts were handed out as Prince Edward Island lost to Quebec 6-2. ONTARIO LEADS After three days of competi- tion before good crowds in two arenas, Ontario leads the A section with a 3-0 won- loss record while Quebec and surprising Nova Scotia are 3-0 in the B division. In other Thursday action, Saskatchewan overcame an early deficit and trounced Northwest Territories 10-3, and Newfoundland edged New Brunswick 6-3. The 12 teams compete in two sections with the top two teams in each entering the semi-finals. The winners of each semi-final play for the gold medal. Manitoba, trailing Alberta 4-0, pulled its goalie in the first period, leaving the net Bowling scores CAPRI BOWL ST.

Atkinson, the Newfoundland goalie, got three minors, one in the second period and two in the third. His first came for slashing, the others when he slid out for the puck and be- came embroiled in roughing incidents. The Yukon team used two goalies in their mismatch. The first, Tim McDonald, faced 46 shots. His replace- ment, Tom Young, stopped 21 of 25 shots. British Columbia, frustrated by hitting the goal posts, also faced the brilliant netminding of Nova S c o t i a's George Mason who kicked out 46 shots in his first game of the tournament. Dennis Gostick was in the net for the Mari- timers' first two victories. Ninety-two penalties were assessed in the Quebec-P.E.I. game marked by a couple of good brawls. Game miscon- ducts went to Marcel Char- rette and Alain Perron of Quebec and Jim Andrew and Bill MacDonald of P.E.I. Randy Crowell of Nova Sco- tia scored the winning goal against B.C., his third winning goal in as many games. POINT STANDINGS Ontario................... British Columbia Alberta..............

Despite objections raised by Al Rollins, coach of Spokane Jets of the British Columbia Senior Hockey League, Bawson said the decision for a round- robin tournament of the four top teams in the western sector had drawn majority support. He said Spokane for some years, "through the courtesy o( other weslcrn senior teams." has been "a welcome American member of our association ami the B.C. league, and indeed were successful in winning the Allen Cup in 1970." Rollins should "show the same courtesy in accepting the type of playoff favored by the great majority of his western senior hockey associates."
