Seagram^ on lee, SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) - Gil Strumm of Saskatoon may have done Ralph Smith a favor when he upset his Northern Ontario rink 7-4 in the eighth round of the Canadian seniors ohanupion-ship Wednesday night. The Saskatchewan victory over the previously-undefeated Smith' gave the 11-i-ink, round-robin tournament a wide-open look with British Columbia, New Brunswick and Manitoba in the thick of the race. However, the 59-year-old Smith wasn't dejected when his Noranda, Que., rink finally lost after six straight wins. "We expected to lose games and this takes off some of the pressure-you feel it every time you go into the next match when everyone is gunning for you." Roy Stone of Trail, B.C., Jim Murphy of Saint John, N.B., and Dr. Bill McTavish of Winnipeg each had 5-2 records after the evening draw. STRATEGY WAS KEY . For Saskatchewan, which has a 4-3 mark along with Bob Cruikshank of Red Deer, Alta., a strategy meeting a few hours earlier was credited as the key to success over Smith. "We mapped out our strategy during supper," said the 51 year-old Strumm, district commercial manager for Saskatchewan Telephones. "We have decided to play a wide-open game and this is exactly what we did. "We went out there tonight believing we could beat them ... we knew that if we could get them to play our game we could take them." In other eighth-round games, Dr. Wen MacDonald of Char-lcttetown edged John Pike of Grand Falls, Mid., 10-9, New Brunswick whipped Gord Bauld of Halifax 12-4, B.C. trounced Guy Ohenail of Quebec City 13-2 by stealing a total of six points and Manitoba nipped Bob Cniikshank of Red Deer, Alta., 6-5. Ontario, skipped by Ed Rhodes of Brampton, had the bye. Seventh-round results were: Newfoundland 11, Quebec 9; Manitoba 8, Saskatchewan 6; Alberta 11, Nova Scotia 4; New Brunswick 14, Ontario 7 and Northern Ontario 7, P.E.I. 6 on an exrta end. B.C. had the bye. Following _ Alberta and Saskatchewan in the standings is P.E.I, with a 4-4 record, while Quebec is 35, Newoundland as 2-5, Ontario 1-6 and Nova Scotia 1-7. Strumm^-with third Oren Wilson, second Ted Macintosh and lead Al Kester-spotted Northern Ontario one on the first end but roared back with three on (the second. Saskatchewan got two points on the fifth for a 5-2 lead, although Northern Ontario narrowed the deficit to 5-4 before Strumm got one on each of the eighth and ninth ends. The Northern Ontario rink had struggled to victories in its four previous games, taking three by a single point. In one of the closest games of the night, Manitoba scored one on the final end to defeat Alberta. The rinks blanked two ends and Alberta had to score three on the ninth but came home with the last rock against it. On the final end, Cruikshank tried to bury a rock behind a long guard but Dr. McTavish got past it, knocked the Alberta rock back and stayed for shot. Mixed opens Friday, Policeman's Sunday Two Alberta finals are set Scores eight goals in win MOOSE JAW (CP) - Canadian forces base Cold Lake was itill the team to beat after the third day of the Bases' Prairie Hockey Championship Wednesday.
