Agtnl Ctntrt Vlllw Mill________________________Phone 326-3201 RON DELORME ALECTIDEY Broncos face Chiefs tonight Lethbridge Broncos have been frustrated in their last two Western Canada Hockey League outings. "We have played well enough to win both said coach Earl Ingarfield, "but the best we could do was two ties." Both those ties, S-6 and 44, however, came against the tough Medicine Hat Tigers. Ingarfield hopes his club can main- tain some of their momentum for tonight as the Kamloops Chiefs pay the Sportsplex an eight o'clock visit. Chiefs' do not have the almost assured security of a playoff spot so will be looking to add two points to their margin over the Edmonton Oil Kings. As well, the Broncos took three of a possible four points from the Chiefs two weeks ago in Kamloops so the Chiefs will be looking for a degree of revenge. Broncos are healthy heading into tonight's game. "We're not completely said Ingarfield. "But we are in pretty good shape Ingarfield wants to finish second. The Broncos lead Brandon Wheat Kings by just one point but have two games in hand. Tonight's game is one of those games. Broncos' Ron Delorme and Alec Tidey are expected to give the club some of the fire power to get past the Chiefs tonight. Delorme, as well as captain Bryan Trottier, has been a real spark plug for the Broncos and Tuesday scored his 25th goal of the season. Tidey collected his 36th Tuesday. Broncos will get one day's rest before the Edmonton Oil Kings visit Sunday night at seven. Meanwhile Calgary Centennials scored four power-play goals Thursday night to upset the Oil Kings 6-3. It was Calgary's first victory in eight games against the Oil Kings this season. The Oil Kings, fifth in the western division, failed to gain ground as they remained six points behind Kamloops Chiefs and New Westminster Bruins, who are tied for third. Edmonton got off to a quick start on early first-period goals by Wayne Perkins and Ted Olson. Calgary, last in the west, narrowed the score on Greg Neeld's goal at of the first period. Denny McLean scored early in the second period to pull the cents into a 2-2 tie, but Wayne Babych countered at to put the Oil Kings back on top 3-2. Calgary closed the period with goals by Al Glendinning, Rick Lalonde and Neeld to take a 5-3 lead after 40 minutes. Calgary's Mike Fynn had the only last-period goal.

Attendance -Tlic Herald- Sports Saskatchewan, Quebec in playoff Grigg rink hits sidelines FERNIE SNOW VALLEY MONCTON, N.B. (CP) With more than .at'the Moncton Coliseum holding their breath, Saskatchewan's Marj Mitchell cooly delivered her last rock of the 10th end at the Canadian women's curling championship Thursday night and gave it a cold glare as it skimmed toward the rings at the other end of the ice. Her sweepers, Florence Sanna and Nancy Kerr, fol- lowed it, ready for the call from their skip or third Kenda Richards in the house. But their brooms weren't needed, the stone catching the counting Manitoba rock and removing it to give the Hegina girls an 8-7 victory over Joan Souris club. That victory forced a playoff today against Quebec, which finished with the same 7-2 record earlier in the evening. Lee Tobin's Montreal rink romped 10-2 over Ivy Lord and her rink from Saint John, N.B. Quebec set the stage for a playoff earlier Thursday by taking a 10-7 victory over Sas- katchewan with three in the fi- nal end. And the Quebec skip wasn't worried about today's showdown. "We're all curling well as of said Mrs. Tobin. "So we'll give anybody a good game." Alberta's Sharon Grigg saw Flyers now deadlocked for first Fort Macleod Flyers moved back into a tie for top spot in the varsity boys division of the Southwest Conference Thurs- day night, but only by the narrowest of margins. The.Flyers earned their llth win of the season with a 42-37 double overtime triumph over Stirling Lakers to give themselves a share of first place with Picture Butte Sugar Kings. Stirling led the wild contest 17-14 at halftime, but the Flyers came back to knot it 31-31 by the end of regulation time, and the clubs were still tied, 35-35, after one overtime. Jack Lemire paced the winners with 19 points while Blaine Barr added 12. Robert Kupecz was tops for Stirling with 10 points. In the junior varsity game, Dick Quon notched 18 points to lead Stirling to a 60-46 win over Fort Macleod Ansons.
