Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE IITHMIDGI Hit A ID - Friday, February 26, 1971 Sugar Kings expected it CLOSE, BUT NOT QUITE - Arnold Palmer does a lirfle dance on the 14th green Thursday as he barely misses a birdie in the first round of the PGA championship.

Points awarded to Rustlers RED DEER (CP) - The Alberta Junior Hockey League has awarded two disputed games to Red Deer Rustlers, thus assuring them of first place in the six-team league, it was announced today. The Rustlers protested 5-2 and 8-4 Josses to Lethbridge because the Sugar Kings used an ineligible player, Dave George. Lethbridge said George was Sugar King named RED DEER, Alta. (CP) - John Davidson, goaltender for Lethbridge Sugar Kings, was named Alberta Junior Hockey League rookie of the year today. The six - foot, four - inch Davidson, 18, who completed last season as the spare goal-tender with Calgary Centennials of the Western Canada Hockey League, edged Marcel Comeau of Ponoka Stampeders in a poll of league coaches and managers. With points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis, Davidson was named on 10 of the 12 ballots, gathering 34 points. Comeau earned five first-place votes, one more than Davidson, but wound up second in total points with 31. Craig Styles, a 30-goal man with the1 Edmonton Maple Leafs, was third with 16 points With two games remaining in the regular schedule, David son's 3.05 average leaves him in a good position to break the league record of 3.12 set in 1967-68 by Don Hall of Lethbridge. Davidson also leads the six - team league in shutouts with three, and was selected to the second all-star team. Comeau has already broken one record for rookies and tied another. His 42 goals - tops in the league - surpass the former mark of 40 for a rookie set in 1966-67 by Darrell Knibbs of Lethbridge and his 80 points tie the record established in 1968-69 by Randy Wyrozub. of Ponoka. Other players mentioned in the balloting were: Rick Norn den, Edmonton Maple Leafs nine points; Joe Mutch, Lethbridge. six; Tom Lindskog Red Deer Rustlers, five; Evan McPhedran, Ponoka. three Randy Andreachuk, Leth bridge, three; and Brian Rim-mer, Edmonton Movers, one. eligible because of permission received from Doug Lauchlan of Calgary, president of the league, and Joe Kryckza, vice-president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. Kryckza denied he gave permission for George to play. However, the AJHL management committee, at a meeting in December, ordered the games replayed with the dates to be set jointly by the clubs. With the league's SO-game schedule ending this weekend Lethbridge says it doesn't want to replay the games. "Red Deer has made several attempts to arrange dates, but Lethbridge flatly refuses to play them," said Ian McKen-zie, vice-president of the league. "Therefore, the league has no alternative but to award J^UN-OFF waUr has now filled Tyrell's Lake to capacity and the rainbows appear to have wintered very well. At mid-week the lake was not open, but the ice covering has been heaved by the run-off water. A few days of windy, warm weather should see a fairly rapid break-up. Fel Balderson, president of the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's Association, is again calling for all sportsmen in the South to unite as last year and help stock 500,000 more rainbows in the lake this spring. Fel is predicting that by this fall Tyrrell's Lake rainbows will be going three pounds and more. There is a tremendous amount of food in the lake and the association wants to raise $14,000 for the additional stocking this year. Some $28,000 was raised last year. Some of the people and business places who have official receipt books and are ready to accept donations in the various parts of the south are: Ernie Reid, Earner; Malcolm Flexhaug, Warner; Leonard Candy, New Dayton; Sugar City Drive-in, Raymond; Stone's Hardware, Raymond; Arndt Motors, Magrath; Bob's Barber Shop in the Medicial Dental Building in downtown Lethbridge; Doug's Music and Sports, Lethbridge Farm Equipment and yours truly. Contributions may be sent direct to the Tyrrell's Lake Fishermen's Association, Box 495, Lethbridge, or Box 86, Magrath. ? ? ? The association has been successful in acquiring additional land adjacent to the present parking and docking area to make the over-all area now double in size. Fishermen and their families going to Tyrrell's are being urged to conduct themselves like true sportsmen if they wish to enjoy access to the lake. Cans, bottles and other trash should be taken home. Take along a garbage bag every, time you go out. ? ? ? The Foremost Fish and Game Association has set its spring banquet and dance for next Friday, March 5, in the Community Hall.

Nicklaus holding the lead PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - The least impressed over Jack Nicklaus* bid this week for an unprecedented double grand slam in professional golf is Jack Nicklaus himself. "I don't take much stock in it -it's something newspaper men invented," Nicklaus said Thursday after shooting a three-un-der-par 69 for the first-round lead in the 53rd Professional Golfers Association championship. If Jack can maintain his present momentum and win his second PGA here this week, he will become the first player ever to win the U.S. and British Opens, the Masters and PGA twice around. Arnold Palmer, still trying for his first-ever PGA title, was well back with a 75. George Knudson, the only Canadian entered, shot a 74. U of L Chinooks even series 1-1 the four points to Red Deer." Prior to the decision, Lethbridge trailed league-leading Red Deer by five points with four games remaining. The Rustlers now lead by nine points with only two games left. Lelhbridgc general manager Syd Hall said Thursday afternoon, "I told them (Red Deer and league officials) to give the Rustlers the points Saturday night." "But as far as Red Deer making several attempts to arrange dates, that's certainly not the truth," said Hall, "they didn't make any effort." Lethbridge won the games in question but lost them in the committee rooms when Kryckza reversed his earlier decision. Sugar Kings, according to team officials, would not have used George had he not been cleared by Kryckza. "Red Deer coach Alf Cadman wanted to finish in first place so bad, maybe this will make him happy," Hall added. The Sugar Kings manager wss upset to think that the league has been made to look bad with the decision of the Red Deer based executive. Sugar Kings travel to Edmonton Saturday and Sun day to close out the regular schedule. The Kings meet the Maple Leafs Saturday and the Movers Sunday. The playoffs open March 6 and 7. Lome B artel scored four goals as Red Deer Rustlers defeated Edmonton Maple Leafs 5-1 before 600 fans Thursday night. The Maple Leaf loss killed any hopes they had of finishing third in the league. Now all playoff positions have been determined with first place Red Deer playing third - place Cal gary in one semi-final and sec ond place Lethbridge playing the fourth-place Maple Leafs in the other semi-final. Both series will start March 6. Meanwhile Ponoka Stamped ers blasted Edmonton Movers with four goals in the first period en route to a 64 victory Thursday night. Doug Topley, Marcel Comeau John Simkin and Doug Silver-nagle all outsmarted Edmon ton goalie Brian Banks in the first period to give Ponoka a lead it never relinquished. Jim Snowdon and Mel Gush attey scored for Edmonton to make the score 4-2 going into the second period. Lee Whitford of Ponoka was the lone scorer in the second period. Ross Barros and Gushattey each gave Edmonton a goal in the third period. Topley scored his second for Ponoka to give the Stampeders a two - point edge. FORGET IT.
