Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD WtdnMday, February 26, 1975 Mitchell to meet Alberta foursome MONCTON, N.B. (CP) Marj Mitchell's Regina rink, defending the Canadian women's curling cham- pionship won the last six years by Saskatoon-area clubs, appears headed for a show- down tonight with Alberta. The Saskatchewan four- some racked up its fifth consecutive win Tuesday night, hanging an 11-6 defeat on Ontario's Bea Cole of Lon- don. But Miss Mitchell, a 26- year-old social worker, isn't Boog now an Indian MIAMI (AP) Boog Powell, the slipping slugger of Baltimore Orioles, was traded to Cleveland Indians Tuesday along with pitcher Don Hood in exchange for catcher Dave Duncan and minor leauge out- fielder Alvin McGrew. "Boog contributed a heckuva lot to this franchise over the general manager Frank Cashen of the Orioles said. "I'm truly sorry that he had to gd. "But when we got Lee May in a trade, he was committed to play first base. That left Boog without a position, and without a job." The Orioles had been trying to swing a deal for Powell -since the winter baseball meetings in 1973 after the first of two consecutive off years for the big first baseman. Powell was named the most valuable player in the Ameri- can League in 1970 after hitting .297 with 35 home runs and 114 runs batted in. But his batting average slipped to .265 in each of the past two seasons, and his pwer hitting also took a nosedive. about to forecast a sweep for the Prairie rink, especially with games today against the popular host New Brunswick entry skipped by Ivy Lord of Saint John and Sharon Grigg's Medicine Hat club. Sharon, with four wins in five starts here, has the best chance to throw a wrench into Saskatchewan's domination of the championship that goes back to 1969 when Joyce McKee started the provincial sweep. In other Tuesday night games, Gail Hiscock of St. John's cracked five in the fourth to lift Newfoundland to a 12-5 win over New Brunswick. Diane Blanchard's Prince Edward Island crew from Char- lottetown registered its first win, 9-8, over Joan Mogk of Souris, Man.; Marion Rad- cliffe's Kelowna, B.C. club took Lee Tobin's Quebec four- some from Montreal 9-4, and Alberta easily' handled the Phyllis MacDonald Nova Scotia representatives from Halifax, 10-2. In the afternoon draw, it was Quebec 8 Ontario 7, New- foundland 8 Nova Scotia 6, British Columbia 14 New Brunswick 3, Alberta 5 Manitoba 4, and Saskatchewan 8 P.E.I. 5. Today's afternoon draw has Manitoba going against Nova Scotia, P.E.I, meeting Quebec, New Brunswick against Saskatchewan, New- foundland playing Alberta and Ontario playing B.C. The evening draw, in addi- tion to the Alberta- Saskatchewan showdown, has Newfoundland against B.C., Nova Scotia meeting Quebec, Ontario playing P.E.I, and New Brunswick facing Manitoba. SOUTHERN ALTA. JUVENILE LEAGUE HOCKEY IslofbutonStmi-FinilplivoHs TONIGHT, Wed., Feb. 26th p.m. CIVIC ICE CENTRE Leth. Juvenile Warriors Brooks Juveniles Adults Students 50t Children AGAC playoffs scheduled for LCC Friday, Saturday The Alberta Collegiate Athletic Conference men's basketball playoffs will be held at the Lethbridge Community College Friday and Saturday nights. Four teams will be featured in the single knockout competition, NAIT, SA1T, Mount Royal College and the LCC Kodiaks. The Kodiaks finished on top of the conference at the conclusion of regular season play with a 15-1 record while Mount Royal was next in line with a 14-2 showing.

Jasiukiewicz was injured in a weekend series of games in Bozeman, Montana when he suffered muscle spasms in his back and Pomahae came up with an achilles tendon problem during practice. Despite playing only one league game in the past three weeks the Kodiaks are in good shape according to their coach Ben Brooks. "We played well together as a team down in Bozeman and I was pleased with the performance of some of the boys. Cur- tis (Travis) came on real well and played some good ball for us as did Greg Hess and Dave the LCC mentor stated. Besides a strong starting five the Kodiaks have plenty of depth with players like Bruce Hamilton, Wayne Anderson, Wendell Cahoon, Dave Peterson and Robert Wells. Kendoh Eakett will be looked on to pick up most of load as well as play his own- strong game and Glenn Schuler will have to come up with strong games both under the boards and scoring wise. Mount Royal College comes into the playoffs direct from their competing in the Canada Winter Games basketball where they finished up in sixth spot overall. Coached by Jack Kenyon, Mount Royal will have to get top efforts from Stu Bauck, Brian Smith and Dave Fulks if CURTIS TRAVIS they expect to unseat the Kodiaks as ACAC champions. NAIT Ookpiks finished strong in conference play and with league leading scorer Rick Gawlick on their squad they led the conference in the highest points per game. SAIT gave the Kodiaks one of their toughest games in conference play and boast three boys from Southern Alberta on their squad, Kim Woolf, Bruce Restall and Ed Dick. The LCC Kodietee drill team, who were such a hit during their performances at the Canada Winter Games basketball, will entertain at half time during the game each evening. Admission for the games is 50 cents for students and for adults and all seats are reserved. The winner of this playoff tournament will travel to Saskatoon March 7-8 for the 4-West regional championships. Nowak fits in with Bruins, Stapleton's Cougars get break Seals get some good news OAKLAND (AP) Munson Campbell, the man running California Seals for the National Hockey League, said Tuesday that the possibility San Francisco businessman Mel Swig will buy the club "is the best news that this hockey franchise has had since its inception." Swig said Tuesday that sev- eral new people have joined his group of investors con- sidering making a bid for the NHL's weakest franchise, one that will probably be moved to Denver next year if no buyer is found who is willing to keep the team in the San Francisco Bay area.

TRACK fTfRIO The NHL bought the Seals a year ago from its last owner, Charles Finley, and has oper- ated it through this season. Each of the other NHL teams stands to lose roughly when the Seals' losses for the season are divided up. The league paid Finley a re- ported million for the club, but there are indications it could change hands the next time for less money, especial- ly if a move can be avoided. "We're getting close to an agreement as to how low they'll Swig said. Munson said Swig will have "our total support and co- operation in his efforts to purchase the but he added he was not speaking on behalf of NHL president Clarence Campbell or the league's board of governors. Munson said he expected the fate of the Seals' franchise to be settled by early May.. Swig, 57, is the member of a prominent San Francisco family which has extensive real estate holdings. He. was. president in the mid 1960s of San Francisco Seals of the old Western Hockey League. SIGN 1975 PACTS CLEARWATER, Fla.
