Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta DON'T KNOW WHY -THERE'S NEVER ENOUGH TIME TO WAIT FOR AN AT THIS POINT. IALWAVS ASK MVSEL.F AD ENOUSH? Traffic jam at top of seniors event PRINCE ALBERT, Sask, (CP) A transplanted Albertan did himself and his former province a favor at the dian seniors curling champion- ship Monday. Gordon Walker, who lived in Edmonton for 25 years, skipped his British Columbia team-mates are all Saskatche- wan natives, but live in Victoria a 7-5 win over Quebec, causing a three-way tie at the top of the standings between B.C., Quebec and Alberta. Saskatchewan and Manitoba have 2-2 records, New Bruns- wick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are 2-1, Northern Ontario 1-2, Ontario 0-3 and Newfoundland winless in four starts. In today's fifth round, starting at a.m. EST, it ws Saskat- chewan versus Quebec, Alberta against Ontario, B.C. opposing New Brunswick, Manitoba against Nova Scotia, Prince Ed- ward Island against Northern Ontario and Newfoundland with the bye. While Walker was helping himself to a share of first place, Alberta defeated New Brans- wick 9-6, Nova Scotia knocked off previously-undefeated Sas- katchewan 8-7, Manitoba shel- lacked hapless Newfoundland 13-1, Prince Edward Island beat, Ontario 10-7 and Northern On- tario had a bye. Walker, who represented Al- berta in the seniors final in 1965 and 1969, was ahead 6-5 going into the last end. Ken Weldon of Montreal threw his last rock which edged past a guard and stayed for shot. Walker, who could see only about an inch of it, threw a beautiful inturn and caught a piece of the Quebec rock, knocking it out of the rings. A B.C. stone in the 12-foot counted. Judo team fares well The University of Lethbridge judo team fared well at the Western Canada Inter-Colle- g i a t e judo championships staged in Winnipeg last week- end. In the lightweight division David Nishi picked up second place honors while Greg Senda followed in third. Byron Templeton also earned a third place finish in the light heavyweight while John Lay reached the quarter finals in featherweight competition. Other members of the Leth- bridge team that reached the quarter finals were Ken Ilabi- janac and Jim Sexsmith, both middleweights. The U of L team came in second to the U of A in the five-man competition. Bartlett paves way in victory Bob Bartlett's three-goal per- formance proved to be the dif- ference as he guided Purity Bottlers to a hard-fought 4-3 victory over Miner's Library in City Recreation Hockey League action Monday night. Meanwhile, the Labor Club all but clinched the league pennant dropping Hie U of L Pronghorns 5-3 in the first game of the scheduled doubleheader at Henderson Ice Centre last night. Bartlett tallied once in the first period and twice in the third to push the Bottlers into second place tie with the Pronghorns. Both clubs have 14 points to date with five games r e- maining. Garry Paskuski chipped in with a singleton in the Bottlers' win while Fred notched two Is and Richard Chollack one for the Miner's. The league leading Labor Club picked up their c'eventh win of the .season ,-nd nerd only hvo more victories in their remaining five games to clinch the pennant. But if tlie Bottlers can come up with a win over the Wil- liams Flyers and if they defeat the Miner's Library on Wed- nesday night they will have assured themselves of at least a first place tie. In last night's encounter scoring leader Tim Negrello picked up four big points to pad his lead and drop the Pronghorns for the fourth time this season. The two clubs were tied 1-1 after the first period of play, but the Pronghorns jumped to a 2-1 after the second. Tlie Labor Club blasted in three straight goals in the fi- nal period to earn (be victory. Al Rowntree, who follows ight beliind Negrello in the scoring race pumped in Is while Al Willis, Ken Kramer and Negrollo added singles. Tunow, Dennis Kisio inu Bob Turner replied for the "'ronghoms. Earlier, Weldon defeated Slim Otterson of Calgary 9-7, handing the Alberta rink its first loss. Tile rinks were tied after seven ends, but the 55-year-old Montreal resident counted one on the eighth and stole one on the ninth when draw was light. Alberta faced four Quebec stones when the Calgary skip threw ids first rock on the 10th. He was light again and decided to shake hands. Otterson did better in the night draw, picking up two on the ninth for his win against Bob Oke of Moncton. Walker's win was his second of the day. In the third round he hammered Don Bauld of Hali- fax 11-7, picking up two threes and two twos along the way. The Nova Scotia rink came back against Saskatchewan, scoring only on four ends, but picking up each time as they knocked off Gene Squides 8-7. Squires said he had a chance to take the game in the eighth when a good last rock would have given him a three. How- ever, he blew it and got only a single. Squires had an easy time In the afternoon draw, beating the inexperienced Newfoundland crew 16-2. Lew Budden of Buch- ans scored only on the sixth as the Saskatoon foursome was just too powerful. The experience was the same for the easterners in the night draw as they were pounded 13-1 by scoring only on the sixth. Both past century mark in, scoring race Tuesday, February 32, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Ratelle sticking to Esposito like glue NEW YORK (AP) Where is Phil Esposito's missing as- sist? That was the question both- ering National Hockey League officials Monday after the weekly scoring statistics allowed Boston's Esposito and New York's Jean Ratcllu tied for the lead with 102 points each. The Bruins, you see, thought Esposito had 103. "I can only go by the report we get after the said Ron Andrews, the NHL's stat- istician. "Our figures Esposito and Ratelle both with 102." The missing assist is proba- bly somewhere in the mail be- tween Minneapolis and Mont- real on the official scorer's report of Saturday night's game between the Bruins and North Stars. Boston won the game 6-4 and originally, Esposito had no points credited to him. Dick Dillman, public relations director of the North Stars, was so impressed with the de- SAAR plans ice racing The Southern Alberta Auto facers have come up with what is a first for south Albertans. Sunday at two o'clock at Park iake SAAR, in co-operation with CJOC Radio, will stage an ce race. It is hoped stock cars, dune buggies, sports cars and other means of transportation will take part in the one-day affair. The races are open to anyone who is interested in racing their car. The lake has been cleaned off and there is ample park- ing. Meanwhile, the SAAR will their regular meeting Weil, nesday evening in the club's new room, at the Lethbridge Hotel. All club members are asked o be on hand for the !athering in the basement of he hotel. It is also expected that a number of interested people will be on hand as a film on ice racing will be shown. WINGS SIfiN BOUCHA DETROIT (CP) Detroit Red Wings have signed Henry Boucha of the United States Olympic Hockey team to a con- tract for the current National Hockey League season, Wings' general manager Ned Harkness announced Monday. fensive job Minnesota did on the Boston star that he praised the checking line in his Monday release. "I sit three seats away from the official said Dill- man. "Unless there was a change that I'm not aware of, Esposito didn't get a point.' When the Bruins arrived in Chicago for Sunday after- noon's game against the Eagleson comments on WHA Parent could ignite move TORONTO (CP) Alan Ea- gleson, executive-director of the National Hockey League Play- ers' Association, said Monday night if Eernie Parent signs wiih Miami Screaming Eagles of the fledgling World Hockey Association it could create a flood of signuigs by NHL play- ers. Eagleson, commenting on re- ports earlier in the day that Parent, a goaltender wiih To- ronto Maple Leafs of the NHL, would sign with the Screaming Eagles tin's weekend for a re- ported over five years, said: :If Parent announces he has signed it will be a major move not only for the WHA but for every player in the said Eagleson. "They've all )een hanging back waiting for the first one to sign. "I think we'll see Winnipeg start a major effort to sign Bobby Hull. If Winnipeg gets Hull, it would automatically be- come as good as most NHL Yanchises." News of Parent's pending as- sociation with the Screaming Eagles was disclosed earlier Ubnday in Philadelphia by the Toronto player's lawyer, How- ard Casper. OTHER LEAFS CLIENTS P a r e n t's team-mates, Jim Harrison and Jacques Plante, are also said to be among Cas- per's clients. NHL president Clarence Campbell said in Toronto late tlonday night the league would :ake whatever action necessary, ncluding going to court, to pro- ect tlie contracts of their play- ers. Asked what damage had been lone by Leaf president Harold Ballard, who was reported re- cently to have told Parent to get vhat he could from Miami de- pite being under contract to oronto till the end of the 1972- 3 season, Campbell replied: "The Parent case is unique. 7 ave a feeling any effort to get an injunction against him or the pponent might be difficult be- ause of tlie statements made y Mr. Ballard." Ballard, however, said the statements attributed to him were not exact and that what he actually told Parent was "when your obligations are completed with the Maple Leaf Hockey i Club the only thing I can do is wish you good luck." "I also told him to get his last week's salary from them (Miami) guaranteed in a trust company or said Bal- lard. Parent renegotiated his con- tract wilh the Leafs last fall. Ballard said that Parent wanted his salary paid a different way think he wanted it sent down to the some details were still to be worked out. Campbell, however, saw the picture differently. "I have on file in my office a contraci between Parent and the said tlie NHL presi- dent, "which extends through next season. Tlie contract has a proper reserve clause. "I don't give a damn about this (verbal) one. As far as I'm concerned he hasn't demon- strated any reason why the con- tract on file isn't valid." Ahearne okays Black Hawks, it was an- nounced that a late change on the last Boston goal had added an assist for Esposito. The point was his 100th of the season, the writers were told. When Espo scored two goals and an assist in Boston's 3-1 victory over the Black Hawks, the writers, using second grade addition, credited Mm with 103 points. R a t e 11 e 's three points Sunday night in New York gave him 102, and, the writers write, one poinl less than Esposito. Then came the official NHL release Monday showing the tie and that's when the miss- ing assist became an issue. NHL rules do not permit scoring changes after a game ends. If there are changes on any goal, they must be re- IJorted by either the team cap- j tain or alternate to the time- keeper at ice level who in turn is supposed to relay the information to the official scorer. The Bruins say they re- quested the change on their last goal Saturday night. Un- less it shows up on the official scorer's sheet, it will be clas- sified as missing in action. SCORING LEADERS TORONTO (CP) Bunny Ahearne, czar of the Interna- tional Ice Hockey Federation, confirmed Monday that Can- ada's hockey professionals and European teams may engage in exhibition matches sometime this year. Fred Page, Canada's vice- president on the HHF, told The Canadian Press during the re- cent Winter Olympic Games in Sapporo, Japan, that such an exhibition arrangement was in the making, possibly as early as May. Ahearne added, however, he doubts Canada will return to compete at an international level because conditions that prompted the country to with- draw in 1970 have not changed. The HHF president, enroute to his London, England, home from Japan, confered here with Charles Hay, head of Hockey Canada, a government agency, and was to meet with Clarence Campbell, president of the Na- tional Hockey League. "We might be able to get an exhibition series with the pros." the 72-y e a r -o 1 d semi-retired Ahearne said, adding that tlie team could be comprised of NHL players. "Of course, that was all signed, sealed and delivered last year but it fell through be- cause Hockey Canada and the Canadian Amateur Hockey As- sociation wouldn't go through with it." He said arrangements were completed last fall for the Rus- sian national team to play in Canada against the pros and that Avery Brundage, Interna- tional Olympic Committee pres- ident, had decreed the series would not tarnish the Russians for Olympic competition.
