"That was a long road trip." Ingarfield, who directs the Lethbridge Bron- cos of the Western Canada Hockey League, had just checked his team back into town Sunday night after a 10 day excursion that gathered them seven big points in their, battle with Brandon Wheat Kings for second in the eastern division of the WCIIL. "And we can't really sit back and enjoy the fact that we are finally at added the coach. That's right, it's back to work tonight. Medicine Hat Tigers, who let the Broncos score with 36 seconds left Sunday for a 6-6 tie in Medicine Hat will be out to gain a measure of revenge when they visit the Sportsplex at eight o'clock.' Tonight is grafetti night and should make for some interesting signs which are expected to adorn the Sportsplex. However, a great deal of the focus of attention will be centred on Bronco forward Bryan Trot- tier as he attempts to take over the scoring lead in the League. Heading into tonight's game with the Tigers, Trottier trails Mel Bridgman of the Victoria Cougars by a slim two points, 124-122. It may seem like Trottier has been chasing Bridgman all season, which is true in a sense.. However, if you take into consideration the games Trottier missed while with Team Canada and with other WCHL teams against inter- national competition, he has done a whale of a job just to be this close this late in the season. Trottier narrowed the gap this past week with nine points in five games while Bridgman picked up five. Two weeks ago, before the Broncos left on their road trip, Bridgman had what might have been described as a comfortable nine point lead. Trottier's total includes 39 goals and a league leading 83 assists. Bridgman has 52 goals and 72 assists. The league's top goal scorer, rookie Don Murdoch of Medicine Hat will be in action this evening. Murdoch has 66 goals and is in third place with 113 points. But the biggest gain of the past two weeks has been made by an unsung Bronco nicknamed "Chief." "He was just tremendous on our road said Ingarfield'as he summed up Ron Delorme's two goals and 15 assists. "That's quite an achievement in eight games, wouldn't you smiled the coach. Ingarfield was very happy with his club in the eight game trip away from home and feels the team is coming into its own as they drive for se- cond place. "Jensen is back skating and Brian Suiter's leg is Ingarfield stated. "Sutler still sees only spotted duty but he's com- ing along just fine." Another player ready for Ihe closing .drive is Terry Bucyk who suffered an injured fool on the west coast. Ingarfield would like to see his club chalk up some much needed points in the next two weeks while the club is at home. "Brandon is staying right on our heels" he said. "I would like to see us win five or six of our next home games and maybe get us some breathing room." The Tigers, who have upended the Broncos 3-1 in two meetings at the Sportsplex, will look to impede their progress one more lime tonight starling al eight Anolher man on the move is New Westminster Bruin goalie Gord Laxton. Laxlon leads goalies in minutes played with 191 and has played in all 56 of his team's games. In his last four outings, he has allowed only five goals and posted two shutouts to lower his goals against average to 3.74, fourth best in the league. BRYAN TROTTIER SCORING LEADERS Bridgman.

Lacrosse meeting Anyone interested in junior lacrosse is invited to an organizational meeting Wednesday, at 7 p.m. in room one at the Civic Centre. All interested people who would like to work with the team this season are asked to attend. Says he has signed 18-year junior John Bassett is true to his word TORONTO (CP) Mark Napier, an 18-year-old who claims he hasn't signed anything, loday is the centre of a new slorm over Ihe sign- ing of under-age junior hockey players by professional leams. The storm blew up Monday when John F. Bassett, 'presi- dent of the World Hockey Association's Toronto Toros, announced that he has signed Napier to a three-year contract to starl playing for the Toros next season. Napier, who has scored 54 goals and 57 assists Ihis. season for Toronto Marlboros of Ihe Onlario Hockey Association Major Junior A series, said he has been negotiating with the Toros but denied he has signed any- thing. Regardless of whether he has signed yet or not, Bassett's slalemenl that he had signed stirred up im- mediate reaction from a number of hockey officials, much of it directly opposed lo Bassetl's posilion. Bassett's action goes againsl a recent tentative agreement belween pro and amateur hockey that the pros would cease signing amateurs who are under 20 years old and also contravenes Ihe es- tablished practice of choosing players through a draft before signing them.' After prompting from Health Minister Marc Lalonde, the federal minister responsible for sport, the WHA and National Hockey League last week gave the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) assurances it would stop drafting under-age juniors. CAHA executive director Gordon Juckes said in Ottawa on Monday that he had receiv- ed verbal assurances on this matter from both leagues. NHL president Clarence Campbell to Bassett's move by calling it "a very serious, and, I think, damag- ing development." In a telephone interview from Montreal, Campbell said he thought Bassett was trying to perpetuale his feud with Lalonde who last year introduced legislation to ban Bassetl's World Football League learn from Canada. "I Ihink it's a very deplorable said Campbell. "I Ihink he's done Canadian junior hockey and Canadian hockey generally a very grave disservice." WHA OPPOSED Dennis Murphy, WHA presi- denl, said his league would not alter its position. In a slalemenl issued from his Los Angeles office, Murphy said he has nol received any conlract for under-age players. "If indeed a WHA owner has signed such a player for the 1975-76 said Murphy, "it is my inlenlion not to ap- prove such a contract." Bassetl recalled thai he had signed centre Wayne Dillon lo a Toros conlract Iwo years ago without drafting him and said he saw no reason to wait for a draft in the case of Napier. He said Napier had come to the Toros and the WHA club had not gone after the player. "We are aware of no legal reasons at this time that the boy should not be allowed to play for the Bassett said in a statement, Clarence (Tubby) Schmaltz, president of Ihe OHA Major Junior A series, said that if signing of under-age players continues, junior hockey clubs "might as well fold their tents." "I can't understand how Bassett could sign said Schmaltz. "The kid hasn't even gone through a draft. WINNIPEG (CP) Allan Young of Karnloops Chiefs scored the lying goal as the Chiefs played to a 2-2 deadlock with Winnipeg Clubs in a Western Canada Hockey League game Monday night.
