In action here And back to you against the University of Saskatchewan the UBC emerged victorious. club Local battler comes close again Rinke lacks only experience By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff Writer An � enthusiastic crowd of 600 jammed the Livingstone School auditorium at Lundbreck Saturday night and witnessed a superb amateur boxing card. Fifteen bouts were run off in a highly organized, professional manner and due mainly to the knowledgeable matchmaking of Lundbreck's Norman Lee only one bout ended short of the three round limit. The feature attraction of the evening was a rematch between Dean Kromarek, 147 pound American Olympic team alternate from Great Falls, Mont, and 1971 Alberta champion Carmen Rinke, who fights out of the Lethbridge boxing club. Kromarek used his finess, acquired over 167 bouts, to advantage and weathered Rinke's bombardment in the third round to grab a close decision. Rinke started extremely slow and allowed the American to build up a good lead through the first and early part of the second round. Rinke, with only 17 bouts under his belt, came on strong in the latter stages of the fight, using his left with great effect. But despite his late surge he dropped his second straight close verdict to the highly regarded American.

EDMONTON (Special) - The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns' 1972-73 Canada West University Men's Basketb a 11 League season came to an abrupt halt before a capacity crowd at the University of Alberta gymnasium Saturday night. The Pronghorns suffered a hafd-fought 83-74 setback to the host Golden Bears and fell just short of winning their first CVVUMBL championship title since their inception six years ago. The Pronghorns, who went into the weekend series needing two victories, forced the Bears into a do-or-die situation in the final league game by posting a 64-55 decision Friday night. The Bears finished the season in first place with a 16-4 record while the Pronghorns trailed in second with a 14-6 record. The Bears will now advance to the Western Canada Intercollegiate championship final against Lakeh'ead a best-of-three series next weekend at Thunder Bay. Meanwhile in Saturday's all-or - nothing encounter, the Pronghorns and Bears battled it out neck and neck throughout the first half, much to the delight of the capacity crowd on hand. The two clubs fought to a 46-46 deadlock after the first 20 minutes of play as the Bears came up with a superb 51 per cent shooting average and the Pronghorns slightly behind with a 48 per cent average. But things changed drastically for the Pronghorns in the second half as they were literally blown off the court. However, according to coach Gary Bowie, the ones doing the blowing were not the Bears, but the officials. "It may sound like sour grapes, but I'd have to say the officiating was pretty bad," commented Bowie. "It was a complete "homer job" as far as I'm concerned," he added. The general rule has it, that if a team loses a game, it's taken for granted that the players and coaches start making up excuses for the loss. But in this case, the Pronghorns and coaches Bowie and Robin Fry are justified in saying that "poor officiating" was the main reason for their loss. "Looking at the situation analytically, the Pronghorns were indeed victims of a questionable job by the officials," said Fry. Firstly, the Pronghorns were handed 25 personal fouls compared to the Bears' 19. Using the seven-foul ruling, this meant the Pronghorns went to the foul line 12 times while the Bears went to the line 22 times. Secondly, the Pronghorns' received four technical fouls in which two of the calls were utterly ridiculous according to head coach Bowie. Coach Fry was assessed a technical four for standing up. Apparently the officials didn't like what Fry shouted out, but Fry had a bad case of laryngitis and could hardly speak. Rookie Larry Baker also received a technical foul for failing to raise his hand up fast enough to signify a foul Thirdly, super star Phil Tollestrup was fouled out at the 14:00 minute mark after receiving four offensive fouls and a defensive foul. Doug Kempt was fouled out less than a min ute later while Roger B'aldry and Baker had four fouls apiece. Finally, to top everything off, the directors and team members of the Bears as well as spectators apologized to the Pronghorns for the poor officiating after the game. Although the Pronghorns lost the championship title, coach Bowie, was more than happy with his team's performance and was optimistic in the near future. "I'm proud of the team regardless how things turned out and I feel more potential university entrants will take a look at our university before they make a final decision," he said.. ' Meanwhile in Saturday's game statistically speaking, Tollestrup led the Pronghorn with a 26-point outing' while teammate Dan Court chipped in with another 15. Tollestrup had scored 22 points in the first half. Mike Frisby led the Bears with 22 points while Wally Tollestrup added 21 and Tom Solyom 18. In other" league games staged Saturday night,, University of Victoria Vikettes closed out their season play with.a 57-32 victory over the: University of Calgary . Dinnies. Lorna McHattie led the winners with 15 points while Brenda Floyd managed 10 for the Dinnies. Storming from behind in the last four minutes of the game, U of V Vikings edged the U of C Dinosaurs 63-60. Pard Hogewejde led Victoria with 16 points while U of C got 21 points from Tom Bishop. Drought ends for Dickson SAN DIEGO (AP) - For several years Bob Dickson had been an object of pity, of concern, of puzzled looks and occasional head-shaking. The bright promise of certain stp.rdom had not been fulfilled. He'd even thought of quitting the pro golf tour. It all ended Sunday when Dickson reached in the cup on the 72nd hole to pluck out the ball that made him a winner for the first time since 1968. "It was, well, it was a kind of animal joy," said, the soft-spoken 29-year-old from Tulsa, Okla., a three-stroke winner in the Andy Williams - San Diego Open golf tournament. "It's just the way it was meant to be," said Australian veteran Bruce Crampton, who opened the gates for Dickson with a fantastic collapse on the final five hoies. PARS LAST ROUND Dickson won it with a par 72 for the final round of the sunny Torrey Pines Golf Course, a 7,-047-yard layout. He finished with a 278 total-10 under par. Crampton, a 37-year-old who won two tournaments earlier tins year and was threatening here, lost one stroke on each of four consecutive holes down the stretch and could do no better than a 76. That dropped Crampton back into a four-way tie for second at 281 with Phil Rodgers, Billy Casper and Grier Jones. Casper had a 71, Rodgers closed with a 66 and Jones a 75; Tied at 282 were Tommy Jacobs, Miller Barber, Dave Ei-chelberger and Hale Irwin. Jacobs had the day's best-round, a 65. : George Knudson of Toronto fired a 72 in the final round for a 54-hole total of 287, good enough for $988. Ben Kem of Toronto wound up with a two-over-par 74 for 289 and $537. British Open champ Lee Tre-vino really never was in it. He had a final 74 for 291.
