Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Unbeaten in four games Morrison earns berth in Dominion playdown By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor What started out as more of a lark than anything, has turned into a trip to Winnipeg for Bob Morrison and his Leth-bridge RCMP rink. Last weekend Morrison and his mates travelled to Red Deer to take part in a two-day bonspiel. It was a trip involving more enjoyment than en-voivment. Morrison had just completed five days of action in the annual Shirtsleeve bonspiel. "We had just curled 14 games in the past five or six days when we left last Sun- day," said Morrison. "We went to Red Deer to have a good time. If we win, we said before we lewt, fine. If not, we will have enjoyed ourselves." Well, as luck would have it the local quartet b r e e z ed through the Red Deer event with an unbeaten mark. In the process, they won the eighth, and what can only be described as the wild - cavd, berth in the Alberta Rothman's Policemen's curling playdown. Tuesday afternoon Morrison put the wraps on the Alberta title and now represents the province in the Dominion finals in Winnipeg, March 12 - 16. There will be a rink from Edmonton City Police to the every province - two from Ontario-as well as the Northwest Territories. "I've been 16 years and in four provinces trying to win a berth in the Dominion final", said third Phil Dodds, "It sure is a good feeling to'have finally made it." And make it they did. Joining Morrison and Dodds were second Dave Hewgill and ltad Don Nordick. Morrison went unbeaten in four straight games in the Alberta final, climaxed Tuesday with a convincing 8-4, eight-end win over Wayne Pearce of A-B final "We really put it all together in the finai", said a nappy Morrison after Pearce conceded the game playing in the ninth end. Pearce was facing four Morrison stones with his last rock when the lights went out. The power problems that forced the "B" final to start two hours late, struck again. "I think someone is trying to tell me something," j o k ed Pearce after he conceded the game to Morrison. Morrison's romp through the Alberta finals began S u n d ay night when he was forced the limit by Doug Dear of Calgary City Police. Morrison won that one 9-8 and was well on his way. Monday morning he advanced to the "A" section final by stopping Ralph Higgs of Calgary City 9-5. Higgs had been one of the favored rinks prior to the start of the three - day playdown. He had played last year with Dave Gerlach's Alberta and Canadian champion-ihip foursome. Morrison won the "A" title over Pearce Monday night, 8-5 and then followed up Tuesday with his impressive triumph. Pearce won the right to meet Morrison in the A-B final after lipping past Lee Wells of Sun-dre RCMP 8-7 in the "B" final. In the championship game Morrison jumped into a 6-0 lead after three ends. He picked up two in the first, one in the second and a big three in the third. The three in the third seemed to take the steam out of the Pearce rink. Pearce closed the gap to 6-3 after five ends as he picked up one in the fourth and stole two in the fifth. Morrison came back with a single in the sixth, gave up one in the seventh before getting it back in the eighth. Winnipeg bound The Canadian Policemen's curling championships In Winnipeg are next on the agenda for Bob Morrison of Lethbridge RCMP and his mates. Morrison won the Alberta title Tuesday at the Lethbridge Curling Club. The winners are, left to right, skip Morri-son, third Phil Dodds, second Dave Hewgill and lead Don Nordick._ . Hawks give themselves a little room to move By THE CANADIAN PRESS Chicago Black Hawks have chased the wolf away from their door, at least for the time being. Last week, the Hawks were floundering dangerously close to losing their National Hockey League West Division lead. But, after a weekend trade that helped them win another game Tuesday night, Chicago's lead over Philadelphia Flyers has gone back up to nine points. Centre Ralph Backstrom, acquired in a trade Sunday from Los Angeles Kings, scored his 21st season goal in helping the Hawks to a 5-3 victory over New York Islanders, in Tuesday's only NHL game. It was the first stop on a seven-game road trip for the Hawks who picked up the 35-year-old Backstrom in exchange for 22-year-old winger Dan Maloney. "We hated to give up Danny," said Hawks general manager Tommy Ivan. "But we've been looking for a centre- man all year and, of course, | now our situation is desperate." The situation became desperate two weeks ago when Stan Mikita, Chicago leading scorer, was sidelined with a broken bone in his left heel which may keep him out another two weeks. The win over the Islanders, led by Bill White's goal and three assists, was the Hawks second in a row after they had lost four straight, while the New York expansion club suffered its 52nd defeat of the sea-' son, putting it within one loss of matching the league record 53 set by California Golden Seals in 1970-71. Tonight, the Hawks visit New York Rangers before a hectic weekend of meeting the Maple Leafs in Toronto Saturday and the Bruins in Boston Sunday. After that, they swing to the West Coast for three games. In other games tonight, Philadelphia visits Detroit Red Wings, St. Louis Blues meet the Penguins in Pittsburgh, Califor- nia faces the North Stars m Minnesota, Los Angeles plays the Canadiens in Montreal and Vancouver Canucks are at Toronto. Looking ahead over the re mainder of the Hawks road trip, coach Billy Reay said he won't be greedy for points. "But if we can play .500 and pick up seven points on this trip, I'll be tickled. From here on in, for every game we win, the other team has to win two in hopes of catching us." Chicago and Philadelphia each have 15 games remaining CHICAGO 5, NY ISLANDERS I First Period - 1 Islanders, Hudson, 9 (Crisp) 2:54; 2. Chicago, White 8 (Stapleton, Hull) 5:44; 3.

Robert Meheden, Sig Majchr zak and Roger Handley tallied single markers and helped Vic Willms notch his eighth shut out of the season. Two goals by Jim Zaremba gave Honda an easy 4-0 win over the Correctional Institute. Karry Banak and Dale Wilson aided in Lloyd Mercer's goaltending chores with a goal apiece. Aldo Nechich picked up his first shutout of the season in three outings and led Local 740 to a 1-0 decision over Sunburst Ceramics. Vic Palychuk managed the only goal during the contest.

Three straight losses to lesser clubs Crusaders seem over confident By THE CANADIAN PRESS Cleveland Crusaders appear to be having problems in taking their lesser rivals seriously in the World Hockey Association. Cleveland, the Eastern Division leader, lost to third-place New York Raiders and to Chicago Cougars, Western Division c e 11 a rndwellers, during the weekend. Tuesday night, the Crusaders went against Ottawa Nationals, the last-place club in the East, and lost again, 2-1". Winnipeg Jets, on the other hand, made good on their easy rivals with a 5-1 win over Chicago, led by Bobby Hull's 41st and 42nd season goals. That maintained the Jets' lead in the West by 11 points over Houston Aeros who edged Alberta Oilers 5-4. In Tuesday's other game, Minnesota Fighting Saints whipped Philadelphia Blazers 3-0. POSITION PRECARIOUS Cleveland's slump leaves them in a precarious position with only a two-point lead over second-place New England Whalers who now have a game in hand over the Crusaders. Guy Trottier's 22nd goal of the season broke a 1-1 tie at Ottawa in the third period after Gavin Kirk had given the Nats an early lead. Joe Hardy scored for the Crusaders who have had Gerry Cheevers in goal during their last two losses. At Winnipeg, Hull's two goals, and two more by Milt Black, led the Jets to their 38th season victory, tops in the league. Ctiris Bordeleau got the, other Jet's goal while Rosaire Paie-ment scored for the Cougars. Mike Curran recorded his fourth season shutout for Minnesota while taking a minor and game misconduct penalty. The minor came with two minutes left in the game when Curran tripped Philadelphia forward Johnny McKenzie in the goal crease. Curran stopped eight shots during the power play to preserve his shutout and when the final siren sounded, he raced to centre ice and threw the puck at referee Ron Ego who had handed him the minor penalty. Ego then assessed Curran the game misconduct and automatic $50 fine. Bob MacMillan, Ted Hampson and Bill Young scored against Philadelplua goalie Bernie Par ent. At Houston, Alberta jumped to a 4-1 lead in the first two periods on goals by Bob McAneeley, Ken Baird, Brian Carlin and Roger Cote. The Aeros then roared back with third-period goals by Don Grierson, John Schella, Keke Mortson and Paul Poplel. Grier son had scored Houston's first goal in the first period. The Oi!ers meet the Aeros in Houston again tonight in the league's only scheduled game.
