Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta February 20, 1974 -THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -13 Eagleson is upset with puck leagues PHILADELPHIA (AP) The World Hockey Association's million suit against the established National Hockey League has been settled out of court, but opposition to part of the settlement has been voiced by the NHL Players' Association. "It would be wholly misleading to describe the settlement of this legal dispute as a NHL president Clarence Campbell said Tuesday after both leagues signed the agreement before District Judge Leon Higginbotham. Braves bounce Bucks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "This may have been the greatest game any team of mine ever has said coach Jack Ramsay after his Buffalo Braves whipped Mil- waukee Bucks 145-109 in a Na- tional Basketball Association contest Tuesday night. It was the most points ever scored by Buffalo. Bob McAdoo paced the Braves with 36 points, while Jack Marin added 20 and Ernie Di Gregorio 18. Kareen Abdul Jabbar led Milwaukee with 38 points. i In other games, New York Knicks nipped Portland Trail Blazers 119-116 in overtime, Chicago Bulls clobbered Phoenix Suns 130-96, Boston Celtics defeated Detroit Pistons 107-97, Golden State Warriors clipped Cleveland Cavaliers 104-98 and Kansas City-Omaha Kings downed Los Angeles Lakers 92-86. In American Basketball Association play, Kentucky Colonels beat Memphis Tarns 109-97 and Indiana Pacers topped San Antonio Spurs 107- 102. Walt Frazier scored 32 points and Earl Monroe had 29 to lead the Knicks. Sidney Wicks wound up with 34 points for Portland. Howard Porter and Chet Walker scored 25 points apiece and Jerry Sloan had 23 to give Chicago its biggest offensive show of the season and enable the Bulls to pull within two games of first- place Milwaukee in the Midwest Division. John Havlicek led Boston with 31 points and Jo Jo White had 23. Cazzie Russell scored 37 of them in the fourth carry Golden State past Cleveland. "No such arrangement merger is contemplated." Under the long awaited agreement, the WHA will be reimbursed by the NHL for legal expenses of million before next Aug. 1, plus interest at the prime rate prevailing last Jan. 15 through the date of payment. The consent decree said that on or before next Jan. 31, committees of owners from both leagues would negotiate in good faith for scheduling of other exhibitions or inter league games, including an all star game. That provision drew fire Tuesday night from Alan Eagleson, executive director of the players' association. PLAYERS OPPOSED Eagleson said in Toronto the players' association still is opposed to exhibition games now 15 under the agreement. The players' association said before the agreement was announced that it was unsatisfactory because it apparently was the first step toward a merger, and Eagleson said "the position of the players'' association is unchanged." "They will not participate in any exhibition games between the leagues until we receive written assurance there will be no merger." Eagleson added that the NHL's plan to pay into the players' pension fund would not change their minds on the issue. "It's not the money, it's the principle that matters." In still another gain by the two year old WHA, the NHL agreed not to oppose use of its arenas by the WHA teams. One of the important concessions was agreement by the WHA Toronto Toros not to make an issue of the unavailability of Maple Leaf Gardens, home of Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL. MODIFICATIONS HELP The NHL board of governors had balked several times in signing the agreement but, Campbell said, some modifications satisfied the opposition. He did not elaborate. In Los Angeles, Dennis Murphy, president of the WHA, said the agreement is a major step to the co-existence of the leagues. "It had been pur position from the beginning that we can co-exist with the NHL, and that both leagues can maintain their Murphy said. "It is the belief of all WHA clubs that one of the major consequences of this settlement will be a peaceful co-existence. "The lines of communication between the two leagues will serve to promote the interest of professional hockey." Minor hockey The Red Wings exploded for five goals with only four minutes left to play in the final period to defeat the Canadians 5-3 in a Bantam A tilt Tuesday night. Randy Taylor and Mike Craig led the brilliant comeback win with two goals each while Trent Auch chipped in with a single. Frank Zasadny, Rob Gaetz and Ralph Sipos tallied singles for the Canadians who led 3-0 for most of the game. The Maple Leafs chalked up a 3-0 victory over the Islanders in another Bantam A game. Ron Walters. Roy Duval and Clement Crowflag notched a goal apiece for the winners while Blake Robertson and Chuck Haughton combined their efforts to register the shutout in the nets. The Blades jumped to a commanding 7-0 lead after two periods and skated to a one-sided 9-1 decision over the Lions in a Bantam B match. Robert Bourassa. Wade Stevenson and Michael Coghlin ripped in a pair of goals for the Blades while singles came off the sticks of Vernpn Albrush. Gary Tokariuk and Clark Bosch. Brian Robinson replied for the Lions in the third period. Sid Braak rifled in two goals and led the Lakers to an easy 7-1 win over the Royals in a Midget game Monday night. Garry Dogterom. Doug Kitaguchi. John Wasilewski. Shane Hirsche and Pete Braak added singles in the win while Berry Sedgewick replied for the Royals. Bristol registers upset of season Mclvor moves in Mike Mclvor of the Calgary Canucks (light moves in on Longhorn netminder Dale Emmelkamp Tuesday night at Henderson Ice Centre. Wide open contest to Calgary 4-2 Mclvor was named the game's first star for his per- formance. Moving into the picture at left is Long- horns' Dennis Hatt. Longhorns come up short By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Opportunity knocked but the Lethbridge Longhorns failed to answer. Despite just a one-shot margin in the shots on goal Tuesday night, the locals had ample chances to upset the Calgary Canuck applecart but fate wouldn't have it as the Longhorns dropped an entertaining 4-2 verdict to the Canucks in Alberta Junior Hockey League action. A pair of unanswered third- period markers spelt setback for the 'Horns after they had taken a 1-0 first period lead. The two clubs were deadlocked 2-2 after 40 minutes. Don Eastcott, who seems to hold a spell over Lethbridge netminders from the side of the lefthand faceoff circle, and Dave Scott tallied the third period goals to give the second place Canucks the two points. Darrel Zaperniuk scored with just 35 seconds left in die opening period to give the Longhorns a 1-0 lead. Brock Kaluznick and Albert Dumont scored within 23 seconds of each other before Dean knotted the count at 2-2 for the Canucks. Kaluznick beat Lethbridge netminder Dale Emmelkamp after the local backstop blocked two earlier tries. Dumont gave the Longhorns the lead. 2-1 at the mark as he banked a shot in behind Calgary goalie Dan Milton off the stick of Calgary defender Ian Rov-e. McGee set the stage for the third period rally by the Canucks with his goal at of the second. Milton finished the game with 41 saves, one less than Emmelkamp. Referee Gerry Gray, the brunt of continual fan abuse, whistled down just six penalties in the game, including a major to each club. The only scrap of the game came at the mark when Lethbridge's Reed Johnson and Rowe finished off a scrap that had started in the Calgary end as the play moved up the ice. Both were guilty of high- sticking but got away with it. Johnson, however, wasn't happy to let sleeping dogs lie as he took a shot at Rqwe on his way to the players bench. Few blows were landed in the scrap but Rowe came away bleeding from a cut to the side of his mouth.

A goal by Don Gillies in the Ceramics upset Herman's Sunburst Ceramics came up with one of their better performances of the 1973-74 City Men's Broomball League season to upset Herman's Upholstery 1-0 Sunday night. It was only the third loss for second-place Herman's and the seventh win for the fifth- place Ceramics. John Seaman paced the winners tallying just 40 seconds into the opening period while Bob McMann chalked up the shutout in the nets. Meanwhile Lou Matteotti picked up shutout number 10 after leading the Lethbridge Hotel to a 2-0 victory over the Fire Department. Angelo Mauro and Roger McAdam scored for the Hotel who still share third place with the Red Devils. The Red Devils kept pace with the Hotel by dropping Ace Building 6-1. Tony Wolak led the winners with a hat-trick while singles came off the brooms of Rudy Fleischhauer, Otto Fomradas and Stan Herbut. Allan Penntogton replied for Ace Building. The league-leading Welterlich maintained their impressive winning streak by earning their 18th consecutive decision Sunday night. The league-leaders, who have yet to taste defeat, dumped the Jaycees 3-0 with John Vaselenak scoring twice and Gus Fomradas once. Local 740 registered a 3-1 win over the Knight Clubbers. Jack Fenr, Art Guenther and Gilbert Scott notched a goal each for the winners while Alex Misak tallied for the losers. In the only other league game staged Sunday night, Southern Signs dropped the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Mavericks 4-1. Jim Corey led the Signs with two goals while singles went to Hans Koenig and Ben Schmold. J. Giroux fired in a solo effort in a losing cause. 73rd minute gave the Bristol club a 1-0 victory over the Cup favourites in their fifth round replay at Leeds. Bristol City had caused a surprise by holding Leeds to a 1-1 draw at Bristol last Saturday In the replay at home, Leeds were expected to massacre their unsophisticated opponents. Bristol withstood tremendous pressure from Leeds and the score was 0-0 at half time. In the second half Bristol began hitting back. In the 73rd minute Keith Fear, moving forward from Midfield, sent a beautifully placed ball into the Leeds penalty area. Gillies eluded a tackle by Norman Hunter, England's World Cup star, and squeezed a right foot shot between goalkeeper David Harvey and the post. Bristol City's victory gives them a home quarter-final tie against league champion Liverpool on March 9. Before the match bookmakers offered 10 to 1 against City defeating Leeds, who had not been beaten at home this season and have an undefeated record in the league But the young Bristol side, whose average age is 23, out-sped their more skilful rivals to shatter Leeds hopes of achieving the Cup-and- League double. It was Leeds first home defeat since they lost a league match to Manchester United last April. Bristol had some luck early in the game. Mick Jones and Johnny Giles had shots blocked as Leeds set up a series of non-stop attacks. Rams host Raymond The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams could clinch the 1973-74 Southern Alberta High School "A" Boys' Basketball League pennant title on their home court tonight. The Rams will entertain the Raymond Comets in the important encounter slated for a start. If the locals should win tonight's -match, the remaining members of the five-team conference will be mathematically out of the running for the pennant title. The Rams currently sport a 9-1 record and the Cardston Cougars, who are the only ones close enough to catch the league-leaders, are 7-3. Both clubs have only two games remaining on their league schedule. AUTOMOTIVE CENTRE THIS WEEK ONLY TIRE SALE!
