Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Ftbruiry 21, 1975 CAPACITY CROWD SEES SONS' FIRST LOSS ALBERTAN REG OSMOND EYES LOOSE PUCK Quebec positional play knocks off Native Sons 4-1 By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer It took a Quebec team, faced with a do or die situation, to finally hand Alberta's Lethbridge Native Sons their first loss in the Canada Winter Games. Quebec capitalized on some Native Son miscues to score three goals in the first period Thursday, and went on to dump the Sons 4-1 in a game which was shifted from Standoff to Henderson Ice Centre due to road conditions. The win gave Quebec first place in the B Division and a berth in the semi finals today, while a loss would have sent La Belle Province to the sidelines. The Native Sons, meanwhile, had already clinched a berth in the semi finals alter winning their first four games. In the semi finals today at the Sportsplex, Quebec took the ice against Nova Scotia at noon while the Native Sons were scheduled to go against a tough Ontario team at 3 p.m. The winners advance to the championship game on the Sportsplex ice at 3 p.m. Saturday while the losers will play off for the bronze medal in Taber at 10 a.m. It was a frustrating night for the Native Sons and some 900 supporters as the Quebec skaters tied the locals in knots with their superb positional hockey. The Sons' only score came when Albert Dumont directed a they did, Quebec goaltender Pierre Beaudoin was there to close the door. The Sons' only score came when Albert Dumount directed a Ken Klinkhammer pass into the net to tie the game 1-1 at the mark of the first period. Pierre St. Andre scored twice for Quebec, while singles came off the sticks of Jean Coutu and Daniel Chausse. "They're a very well coached said Lethbridge coach Howie Yanosik of the Quebec squad after the game. "They played excellent positional hockey, and they got great goaltehding." But, while Yanosik praised the Quebec team, he admitted that his club had an off night. "We gave them all of their he said. "And we made a lot of mistakes, particularly in the first period." St. Andre opened the scoring at the mark of the open- ing period when he scored on what appeared to be a harmless shot from the right wing. Then, after Dumont tied it, St. Andre swept around the Native Son defence, and got out front to beat Lethbridge goaltender Garry Warner high on the stick side. Coutu made it 3-1 at the mark when he scored off a two on one break while killing a penalty. Midway through the second period, Chausse wrapped up the scoring when he picked up a .loose puck from a scramble and went in alone to beat Warner. Gary Clark replaced Warner at the mark of the mid- dle frame, and held Quebec off the scoresheet the rest of the way, but the Native Sons couldn't get any goals of their own to narrow the gap. Quebec seemed to be everywhere the puck was, but Yanosik emphasized it was as much a poor effort by the Sons as a strong showing by Quebec that was responsible. "The boys were pretty scrappy tonight they weren't passing he lamented. "We know we can play better than that." Over the 60 minutes, the Native Sons outshot Quebec 37-26 and took nine of the 20 minor penalties handed out. Quebec and Alberta both finished the round robin tourna- ment with 4-1 records in Division B, but Quebec gets top spot by virtue of their win over Alberta. Some of the most disappointed onlookers Thursday night were the members of the Manitoba team, who would have been in the playoffs had Quebec.lost. Manitoba blitzed New Brunswick 18-2 earlier Thursday to boost their record to 3-2, while Newfoundland also finished at 3- 2 after downing Prince Edward Island 7-4. Had Quebec lost, they too would have had a 3-2 record, and Manitoba would have edged them for the second playoff berth as they had less goals against in games involving the three clubs. "So you could say Quebec had a little more Yanosik says. As second place finishers, the Sons must now face Ontario, who took top spot in Division A with a narrow 3-2 win over Nova Scotia Thursday night in the deciding game for that division. In the other two games Thursday, Saskatchewan downed N.W.T. 9-2 and British Columbia edged Yukon 74.
