Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Manitoba and B.C. atop volleyball after 2 days competition By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer It seems the 1975 Canada Winter Games men's volleyball event might be a repeat performance. After two days of action, the men's competition is following much the same pattern as the 71 Games. The top six teams in Saskatoon are once again heading the pack. Manitoba and British Columbia are leading the way in their respective divisions as they remained undefeated after third round play staged at Lethbridge Civic Centre Tuesday. Manitoba, defending champions of this event, scored its third win in Divi- sion A competition as it whipped Queb- ed lb-4 and 15-8 in their best-of-three match. B.C., who earned a bronze medal in the last Games, took over sole posses- sion of first place in Division B by defeating Prince Edward Island 15-6 and 15-4. Alberta and Ontario, who placed fifth and second respectively in the Saska- toon Games, share second spot in Divi- sion B as they earned single victories in their third round. Alberta defeated Northwest Territories 15-3 and 16-14 while On- tario, who lost its first game 154, came up with back-to-back 15-10 wins to edge New Brunswick. Both clubs sport 2-1 records. In Division A play, Quebec and Nova Scotia hold down second place with 2-1 records. Quebec, who placed fourth in the last Games, were dropped to second after losing to Manitoba while Nova Scotia, who placed sixth in 71, share second after defeating Saskatchewan 15-8 and 15-7. In the only other Division A game staged, Newfoundland scored its first win of the tourney by dropping Yukon 15-7 twice. Meanwhile women's competition got under way on two fronts Tuesday. The four-day women's event, 'which is organized identically to that of the men's event, saw Division A action at Blairmore and Division B play at the University of Lethbridge. In Division A competition, Alberta, Manitoba and Nova Scotia went un- defeated after their initial two starts. Alberta defeated Yukon 154 and 15-2 in its first match and followed with a 15-12 and 154 decision over Ontario. Manitoba scored its wins over On- tario and Newfoundland. It defeated Newfoundland in straight games by 15- 4 counts, but needed to go the limit in its best-of-three match against Ontario (15-2, 6-15 and In Division B action, B.C. jumped intu the early lead by registering a pair of wins. The west coast representatives defeated Saskatchewan (15-9, 10-15 and 15-6) and Quebec in straight games 15-10 and 154. Four teams have a slim hold on se- cond place after picking up a win and a loss while the Northwest Territories was the only team who failed to earn a verdict. Results of the games are as follow: New Brunswick over Northwest Territories 15-5 and 154; Saskatchewan over Prince Edward Island 15-5 and 15- 4; Quebec over New Brunswick 15-9 and 15-2; and Prince Edward Island over Northwest Territories 154 and 15- 7.

One of the losers on the two- card 20-fight program, held at Claresholm, was Cardston boxer Hugh Calfrobe Jr. who dropped a close decision to British. Columbia 156 pounder Brad Koch. Calfrobe tired badly in the third round and his poor show- ing in the final heat was enough to swing the judges' decision Koch's way, three to two. On the plus side of the ledger for the Alberta team were two impressive wins in the 112 and 199 pound classes. Brad Hortie of Edmonton scored a win in the 112 pound division when the referee stopped his one sided match with Eddie Ross of Prince. Edward Island in the first round. "He hit me Ross lamented after the bout, adding "he put everything he had behind each punch. He's real strong." Frank Pruden, also of Ed- monton, had everything his own way in his 119 pound vic- tory over Marcel Harper of Manitoba. Referee Bert Lowes stepped in between the two battlers in the second round, declaring that the game Manitoba boxer was in over his head and awarded the bout to Pruden who had Harper on the verge of being knocked down. Mike Young of Edmonton came out on the long end of a .split decision in his bout with Donald Downey of Nova Scotia in the 139 pound class. Young got the nod on a very close decision as the. youngster from Nova Scotia proved to be no easy win. It was a case of the classic box- er, Downey, versus the puncher, Young. And this time the puncher came out on top. The fourth Alberta .victory came in the 165 pound class when a bloody Ray Duperon of Drayton Valley gained the un- animous hod over Gary Fulton of Saskatchewan in a bruising bout. Alberta's chance at a heavyweight medal went by the wayside as Calvin Lawrence of Nova Scotia caught Stanley Dingman of Rocky Mountain House flush on the left eye with a powerful overhand right forcing the Headdress adds color to ceremony Hugh Calfrobe Jr. added a touch of native color to the official opening of the boxing at Claresholm Tuesday. The boxer, from the Blood Indian Reserve is a member of the Alberta team and entered the parade of athletes attired in an In- dian headdress. It was the first time that an athlete has worn part of his native costume in any of the Games ceremonies It added a colorful touch to the proceedings.' Alberta boy to retire in the first round. Lawrence had been connecting with some heavy blows in the opening minute of the round and had the Alberta heavyweight staggering when he caught him with the shot to the eye. Rick Clark of Edmonton found Morgan Williams too strong for him and came out on the short end of the verdict in a 132-pound contest. In one of the most one sid- ed bouts of the two cards Shane Hoyt of British Colum- bia scored a rare knockout in amateur boxing when he deck- ed Allen 6'Halloran of Nova Scotia in the third round of their 165 pound fight. Referee Jim McCuster let the fight progress after O'Halloran had been shaken up several times just prior to the knockout. It is the usual procedure in amateur boxing for a referee to step in and stop a contest once it is evident that a boxer has gained complete control of a fight. Hoyt had complete control of the happenings in the third round, and the fight should have been stopped. Kevin Downey of Nova Scotia, brother to Donald Downey who lost to Young, won his bout in the 178-pound class when the referee halted the proceedings in the second round of his fight with Frank Richards of Ontario. Richards was out on his feet and the referee made a wise move in halting the fight. William Featherstone, a 147-pounder from Ontario defeated Barry Cresswell of B.C. when the referee stopped the contest in the first round after Featherstone had connected with a solid left hook and then a devastating right to Cresswell's head. David Williamson-of On- tario won his 156 pound bat- tle with Jacques Nault of Quebec via a unanimous deci- sion route. Richard Poirer of New Brunswick took a close decision over Jean Yves Huard of Quebec in a 119 pound fight. Another Quebec fighter, Michel Rouleau, also lost when he dropped a 4-1 split decision to B.C.'s Joseph McCaffrey in a 132 pound bout. In the 119 pound division, Cole Raftery of Ontario decisioned Thomas Chamberlain of New Brunswick and southpaw Chris Clarke of Nova Scotia decisioned John Raftery of Ontario in the 125 pound class. Nova Scotia's Rick Anderson took a unanimous verdict over Jacey Miller of B.C. in a 105-pound bout, and Ualiivan MacDonald of Nova Scotia eked out a narrow 3-2 verdict over Garth Gariedy of Saskatchewan in a 147 pound battle. The referee stopped the contest in the second round in a 105 pound fight, giving the nod to Steven Nolan of Ontario over Dale Smith of Saskatchewan. David Acoose of Saskatchewan took a un- animous verdict over Russell Macintosh in a 112 pound bout, and 119 pound Mike Jenkins of P.E.I, decisioned Newfoundland's Bernard Staples. The two cards at Claresholm were well attend- ed both afternoon and evening. The boxing resumed there this afternoon and a se- cond card is slated for seven tonight.

By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Alberta's Lethbridge Native Sons evidently found a 7-6 double-overtime win Monday just a little too close for com- fort. At least, they wasted little time in putting the game out of their opponent's reach Tuesday night as they skated to their third Canada Winter Games victory in, as many outings. The Native Sons fired six goals past two Prince Edward Island goaltenders in the first minutes, and then coasted to a 13-2 triumph before fans at the Sportsplex. "We came out flying said coach Howie Yanosik after the game. "But it wasn't really a good game." "When you have an 8-0 lead after the first period, it's pret- ty tough to keep skating hard." Joe Meli, the hero of the overtime win against New- foundland Monday, sent the Sons on their way with a quick wrist shot at the mark of the opening period. Two minutes later, Meli scored again, this time on a shorthanded effort for which Gino Guzzi did all the work. Glen Scheibner banked the puck off the post to make it 3- 0, and then little Albert Du- mont scored a hat trick within 53 seconds, or at least that's how if appeared until an of- ficial correction gave the last goal to Mark Scheibner. Dumont did, however, wind up with three goals, as did the two Scheibners. Meli's two goals, and singles by Randy Lowe and Howell wrapped up the Lethbridge scoring while James MacAdam had both P.E.I, goals. The Native Sons put on an awesome display in the first period, throwing the puck 'Have to smell Manitoba coaches warn of smug attitude By JOHN KOROBAN1K The Cuudlu Preis Complacency has spread Into the heirarchy of the Manitoba volleyball system and it could cause the province to lose its top national ranking, say coaches of Manitoba's men's team at the Canada Winter Games. Jim Harrison and Dennis Nord, both of Winnipeg, said Tuesday that volleyball of- ficials have simply become over confident of the province's ability. Manitoba won both the men's and women's titles at the 1971 games in Saskatoon and are favored to repeat here. "Winning has gone a bit to the head of some said Nord, coach at Dakota Collegiate for the last 10 years. "They feel they can just slap a team together and it'll go out and win. But they'll have to realize the rest of Canada is catching up." Harrison, who his been preparing rival teams to Nord at Miles Macdonell Collegiate for the last decade, Mid it is essential the province establish a junior development program. "That should have happened five years ago." The two coaches have dominated .volleyball in the province and produced four of the six starters on Canada's National Team. Now, however, they are in danger of becoming vic- tims of the system they helped improve. "Manitoba became a power on ihe basis of a highly competitive high school Nord explained. "Our best coaches are in high school and the kids begin training in junior high. "The competition is so' keen we could almost bring a high school team to some of these competitions and they'd finish very high." Part of the reason is that teams venturing out1 of the province now carry a tradition and winning spirit with them. But, at the same time, the point has been reached where the system must be improved if Manitoba is to remain a national power. "The problem is that if you win the officials say the system can't be Nord said. "If we win this year nothing will be done. If we lose though, something will be done." Manitoba men came close to losing their opening match against Saskatchewan Mon- day night. Saskatchewan, a province that "had .never scored more than 10 points against us" won the opening game 15-2 before dropping the next two by 15-11 scores. The Manitoba team was thrown together five weeks ago and that, both coaches agree, is not long enough to develop the spirit and unity that is needed. "You can make the adjustments for different said Nord. "But you can't make the adjustments for differences social- ly and personally. You can't have a phoney team spirit because it only lasts for a few moments into the game." "The kids have to smell armpits and get to know each other offered Harrison. Both Nord and Harrison look to Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia for the toughest competition at the games. "But Manitoba is the toughest team for said Nord. "If we play well, it doesn't matter who is on the other side of the net, we'll win; Conversely, if we play badly it doesn't matter who Is over there they'll beat US." Y around with authority, and outshootihg P.E.I, by a 19-1 count. The lone bright light for the Maritime team was goaltender Ken Buote, who replaced starter Lloyd Perry after the fifth Lethbridge goal. The stocky youngster was amazing the rest of the way, particularly in the early part of the second period, when he stopped a barrage of point- blank Lethbridge shots. Over the 60 minutes, the two P.E.I, goaltenders faced a total of 52 shots, while their teammates tested Lethbridge netminder Gary Clark on only 12 occasions. The game was marred when a brawl erupted at the mark of the final period. Reg Osmond tangled with P.E.I, 's Roger Savidant in the original bout, while the Sons' Dennis Hatt and Dave Hougen squared off with Eric Cutcliffe and Pinky Gallant in the others. Hatt won the only clear-cut decision, and was ejected from the game via the third- man rule, along with Hougen, Cutcliffe, and Gallant. "They started to get a little chippy when they fell way said Yanosik. "And our boys weren't prepared to take any cheap shots sitting down." All told, the Native Sons took eight of nineteen minor penalties while the clubs split the two majors and four game misconducts. Elsewhere, Quebec also won their third game in the B division, dumping New Brunswick 7-3 in Pincher Creek. The Native Sons meet New Brunswick today in Taber while Quebec faces New- foundland before the two B division leaders tangle in the final round of the round-robin preliminary tournament Thursday in Standoff. The Native sons are now virtually assured of a berth in the semi-finals, in which the top two teams in each division criss-cross in games Friday at the Sportsplex. "It looks very good right commented Yanosik last night. "But we're taking them one at a time." "We've got to beat New Brunswick before we can even think about Quebec, or the semi-finals." In the other B division game Tuesday, Manitoba picked up its first win with a 7-1 triumph over Newfoundland. In the A division, Ontario and Nova Scotia remain un- defeated in three games. On- tario edged the Yukon 4-1 while Nova Scotia blitzed Northwest Territories 11-2. The other game saw Saskatchewan thrash British Columbia 10-5. A DlviiPo.
