12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, February 24, 1975 Wings beaten in three, Rangers slap Flyers 2-1 By The CANADIAN PRESS Detroit Red Wings today are riding a three-game winn- ing streak and much of the credit is going to goalie Jim Rutherford and centre Marcel Dionne.

Sunday, the Wings earned their third win by a 3-1 count against the Penguins. with Dionne scoring his 34th goal of the season and Rutherford, a former Penguins player, providing excellent goaltending against a 37-shot Pittsburgh attack.

Leeds looking stronger, shake off injury string LONDON (AP) Leeds United, the defending English League soccer champion, has finally shrugged off a long string of injuries and now looks like a possible contender to retain the title. Leeds had a meager six points from the first 11 games of the season and appeared likely candidates for relegation. A crippling phase of serious injuries to key players, in- cluding captain Billy Bremner, defenders Norman Hunter and Terry Cooper and forwards Mick Jones and Ed- die Gray, left Leeds without its most experienced stars. But under new manager Jimmy Armfield, the club be- gan to pull itself back together and Saturday, with a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough, pulled to within four points of First Division leaders Stoke and Burnley who each have 37. "It has not been said Armfield. "No other club in the league had the injury list we have had to contend with. "But we have taken. 27 points from our last 19 games after that disastrous start and that must be as good as any record in the First Division." HAS CUP HOPES Leeds is also through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and the European Cup where they meet Anderlecht of Bel- gium in the quarter-finals. "It would be foolish to make any rash said Armfield. "What I can say is that after losing almost a full international team with serious injury for much of the season, we are now nearer having a full strength squad than at any time." Leeds defeated Middlesbrough on striker Allan Clarke's goal in the 32nd minute. Burnley moved up to tie Stoke on points by defeating Sheffield United 2-1. Peter No- ble and Leighton James scores for Burnley and Alan Woodward headed in a goal for Sheffield in the last minute. Stoke, meanwhile, played to a scoreless draw at Luroh. Everton, which ranks behind Stoke and Burnley with 36 points, also went through a scoreless draw against Liver- pool. Liverpool has 35 points, tied with Manchester City which moved up with a 3-1 win at Birmingham. Derby took a 2-1 win over Arsenal which finished with nine men after English inter- nationals Alan Ball and Bob McNab were sent off for ar- guing with the referee. Manchester United and Sun- derland, leaders in the Second Division, both lost but held on to first and second places re- spectively. United lost 2-0 to Aston Villa and Sunderland dropped a 2-1 decision to Fulham. In the' Scottish League, Glasgow Rangers opened up a fourpoint lead in their bid for their first league title in 11 years.
