Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Locals return with seven points, still in second Broncos finally end road trip MEDICINE HAT (Special) Darcy Regier scored at the mark of the third period Sun- day and carried Lethbridge Broncos to a 6-6 tie with the host Medicine Hat Tigers Sunday after- noon. Playing before a home crowd of the Tigers had held a 6-4 lead early in the .final stanza before the road weary Broncos fought- back to earn the tie. "Our guys never stopped said Bill Burton of the Broncos. Burton and coach Earl Ingarfield have to be more than just pleased with the Broncos. Sunday's game was their eighth in 10 days as the Broncos had to vacate the Lethbridge Sportsplex for the 1975 Canada Winter Games. Road trips have not been all that successful for the Broncos this year and coach Ingarfield was concerned about an eight game trip. However, his troupes came through with flying colors and set the stage for Tuesday's visit by the same Tigers. In their last meeting in Lethbridge, the Sunday before the Broncos left for their road trip, the Tigers emerged with a 3-1 victory. Broncos would like nothing better than to even the score and may have picked up the momentum Sunday to do it. Broncos, who led 2-1 after the first period Sun- day, got goals from Regier, Wade Smith, Bryan Trottier, Jerry Bancks, Ron Delorme and Alec Tidey. Greg Vaydik tallied twice for the Tigers while solo markers came off the sticks of Don Mur- doch, Morris Lukowich, Jim Bertram, and Barry Dean. Medicine Hat netminder Jerry Farwell faced 32 Bronco shots while Rollie Boutin of the Bron- cos had 37 fired his way. Sunday's game followed the same pattern the games between the two clubs have all season as RON DELORME only 10 minor penalties were called, five to each team. Bryan Maxwell picked up the game's only misconduct. Penalties played a key role in the Tigers' earn- ing a deadlock. They scored twice while Don Johnson of the Broncos was cooling his heels with a double minor. They also scored once while the Broncos had the man advantage. Broncos played almost 50-50 hockey on the road this trip as they came up with seven of a possible 16 points and maintained their hold on second place in the Western Canada Hockey League's eastern division. They lead Brandon Wheat Kings by two points but have two games in hand. In their eight games away from the friendly confines of the Sportsplex, the Broncos defeated the teams they didn't expect to and lost a couple that should have been victories. Ingarfield, however, will take them as he can get them. Broncos earned three points in two games with Kamloops Chiefs, who will be in Lethbridge Friday night, as they won 5-4 and came back, with four seconds left, for a 5-5 tie. New Westminster Bruins, in a battle for fourth place in the west, blanked the Broncos 6-0 the night before the Broncos travelled to Victoria and dumped the Cougars 5-3. Back in the east the Broncos lost to Winnipeg and Regina but tied Brandon and Medicine Hat. A real sparkplug for the Broncos on their trip was veteran winger Ron Delorme. Chief picked up nearly 20 points according to Burton and played "just tremendously for us." Tuesday's game with the Tigers is set for 8 p.m. and is grafetti night.

The Bruins, fourth in the west, whipped the Eastern Division-leading Blades 3-1 Sunday to give them a total of 66 points, six more than Edmonton.

Daryl Ferner had the only Kamloops goal. Major status for B.C. teams? KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) The majority of teams in the British Columbia Junior Hockey League will probably join a new major junior status league in the province, the president of the BCJHL said Sunday. Brian Couling said in an interview that a decision Saturday by the B.C. Amateur Hockey Association to form such a league could put an end to the BCJHL. "I know the majority of teams in the BCJHL will app- ly and if there are enough favoring the new league it's possible the BCJHL will he said. "We should know what's going to happen in April or May when the teams start applying." Couling said the decision to set up a major junior status league for the 1975-76 season follows a request for one by members of the BCJHL. He said it would be in the interest of both his league and its players to have such a league formed. "It would enable the league members to more easily hang onto their players while at the same time, it-would' be to the advantage of the players to continue their education, both academically and in hockey, within the said the BCJHL president. Couling said such a league would be on the same level as counterparts the Quebec Major Junior League, the Ontario Hockey Association's Major Junior League, and the Western Canada Hockey League with the difference that players would not have to play out of province games. "That way it wouldn't such a burden] onltheir saidJCouling. He- said tijat since there are indications the major leagues in America will only draft 50 players next season, players would be better off gathering experience with a major junior league. "We've been a developmental league for some time now and we feel we've reached the stage where we're ready to move said Couling. Dale McMullin and Dan Bo- nar each collected two goals for the winners. They got help in the scoring column from Rick Blight, Derek Spring and Mike Bradbury. Scott Williams got the Bombers on the Scoreboard late in the se- cond period and Kim Davis and Mark Davidson came through in the final frame. The Oil Kings, playing at home, whipped the Cents for the seventh straight time this season as Gary Rissling and Ted Olson each scored twice. Doug Lecuyer and Ted Olson added singles. Dave Colborne and Larry Lestander replied" for the Centennials. Goalie Bill Oleschuk saved the Blades as he made 45 saves, including 19 in the third period. Mel Bridgman and Gordie Roberts scored for the Western Division-leading Cougars, while Bruce Hamilton and Dan Arndt replied for the Blades. McMullin scored the winn- ing goal on a power play with less than 30 seconds left in the contest. Blight and Spring had the otter Brandon goals, with Bob Watson and Jeff McDill countering for the losers. In tonight's only game, Kamloops travels to Winnipeg to play the Clubs.

The priest was called in by anxious supporters of Borgesesia of the Italian Fourth Division. The team's followers are convinced the home pitch is haunted. Despite the priest's intervention, the home side went down to its fifth loss in a row, a 1 0 defeat by Bouromanero. Any hope Borgesesia has of promotion and success in the league this year now is being pinned firmly on the team's performance away from home. Borgesesia sup- porters believe the Vercelli demon does not travel to away matches. Olson E Fynn C Babych E Third Poriod: 8. Calgary.

I'' FitzSimons was staked to a six-shot lead by his course- record 64 in Saturday's third round and clinched it with a steady one-under-par 70 over the last 18 holes of the yard Riviera Country Club course. He won by four strokes with a 275 total. The big lead starting the final round was the difference. "With a six-stroke lead, you want to concede yourself the victory, but you can't do the 24-year-old FitzSimons said. "It's like looking at a three- foot putt for six hours. If you make it, people say, 'Well, that's what he's supposed to do.' If you miss it, they say, 'How in the world could he blow something like "Blowing a six-shot lead could be a devastating thing."
