Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta February SI, 1972 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Still in fourth Sugar Kings beaten 4-1 in two outings By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "If you don't shoot you can't score." That' obviously applied to the Lethbridge Sugar Kings as they took it on the chin twice in Al- berta Junior Hockey League ac- tion at Henderson Ice Centre over the weekend. Saturday night the h o m e- standing Sugar Kings suffered a 4-1 loss to the Edmonton Mov- ers while Sunday afternoon they dropped another 4-1 decision to the Edmonton Maple Leafs. The two weekend losses left the Sugar Kings deadlocked in fourth place with the Maple Leafs in team standings, both having mustered up 39 points in 44 games. Meanwhile, the Dnmheller Falcons suffered a 7-3 setback to the Edmonton Movers Sun- day and eliminated themselves out of a playoff spot. The Falcons arc 13 points back of the Kings and Leafs and could only earn 12 points in their six remaining games. In Sunday's contest before some 600 fans, the Sugar Kings had a countless number of op- portunities to put the puck into the net, but either missed or failed to shoot. Luck wasn't on their sid either as they banged a cross bar and at least three goa posts during the three perioc of play.

Wadkins lost a sudden-death playoff to Homero Blancas for the title in the Phoenix open golf tournament Sunday, finishing second for the second time in as many weeks. The 22-year-old former United States amateur champion from Wake Forest spun out a 20-foot birdie putt that would have won it on the 72nd hole, then bowed to Blancas' birdie four on the first extra hole. The victory was worth to Blancas, a 33-year-old from Houston who scored his fourth tour victory. Wadkins pulled down for second. Blancas, who missed a four- foot birdie putt that would have nailed it down on the final hole, had a last-round 69, two-under- par on the Phoenix Country Club course. Wadkins, playing in only his 12th profes- sional event, closed with a spar- kling 66 and caught Blancas at the end of the regulation 72 holes at 273.

The knees and ankles should be relaxed, but firmly holding the skis on their inside edges. By pushing down -and forward with your ankles' and knees you will be able to apply braking pressure on the skis. Begin slowly In this "V" position with a constant braking action all the way down the slope. Once you have mastered this, try to control your speed by applying even pressure on the inside edges. One final word on the snowplow it is only an aid to help you in 'the initial stage. Don't become a perfectionist with the snowplow. .As soon as you can control your speed, it is time to try a few turns.
