Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, January 2, 1975 Rangers slap Black Hawks Flyers on top but good now John Newcombe wins grudge match By THE CANADIAN PRESS Philadelphia Flyers, de- fending Stanley Cup cham- pions, are the new points leaders in the National Hockey League and goalie Bernie Parent has his seventh shutout of the season. The Flyers emerged 2-0 vic- tors over the Canucks at Van- couver Wednesday night after Parent won a goaltending bat- tle with Vancouver's Gary Smith who gave up Bill Barber's winning goal late in the third period. The win put the Flyers at the top with 55 points in 37 games, and gave them a 13- point lead over second-place New York Rangers in the Patrick Division. Buffalo Sabres, the overall points leader the last few weeks, now is second with 53 but still has a seven-point lead over second-place Boston Bruins in the Adams Division. In other games Wednesday, the Rangers beat Chicago Black Hawks 6-2 and Toronto Maple Leafs tied California Seals 3-3. Tuesday night, Los Angeles Kings beat Chicago 3-1 and Detroit Red Wings ended an eight-game winless streak by beating California 4-3. Barber's 16th goal of the season broke the scoreless battle at of the third period. Philadelphia captain Bobby Clarke set up Barber's goal when he out-muscled a Canucks' forward along the ANDY CAPP boards and kicked the puck to Barber who let go a 20-foot shot to catch Smith on the short side. Clarke also set up Ross Lon- sberry's empty-net goal in the final minute. At Toronto, the Leafs, whoa few weeks ago were criticized by owner Harold Ballard for lack of hustle, wera further berated by a member of the Seals, who are only four points behind the third-place Leafs in the Adams Division. Fomradas shines Gus Fomradas fired in five goals, and picked up an assist on Roger McAdam's goal to pace the Lethbridge Hotel to a 6-1 triumph over the Lethbridge Correctional In- stitute in Lethbridge and District Broomball League action. John Courtoreille had the only goal for the losers. Rick Whitcroft's hard shot from the blueline was all Ace Building needed as they took a 1-0 upset decision from J and L Roofing. Barrj Neidermeir picked up the shutout. With just a minute left in the game, Jim Fraser found the net to lift Herman's. Upholstery to a 2-1 win over the Miner's Library. Robert Meheden scored the other goal for the winners, while Murray Scott replied for the Library. Shaughnessy edged Southern Signs 2-1 in one of the roughest games of the season, as two players were ejected from tha game, one for shoving referee Peter Zubersky Jr. Mel Hudson and Tony Wolak scored for Shaughnessy while Ben Schmold replied in a los- ing cause. Hugo Brees notched a hat trick while Willy Brees scored a pair and Brian Gouthreau had a single as the Eagles whipped City Hall Gangsters 6-0. Cam Hodgin picked up the shutout. Goalie Don Lewis gave up only one goal, and assisted on the game winner when he set up Ernie Langridge on a breakway with five seconds left to give the Knight Clubbers a 2-1 win over the Jaycees. Langridge had the other Clubbers' goal as well, while Bill Ressler scored for the Jaycees. STANDINGS Herman's Uphol. Leth.

ANSWERS In Van's TV Advirtisement MELBOURNE (AP) Veteran Australian John New- combe, three-time Wimbledon champion, saying he was "well psyched up" for his grudge match against Jimmy Connors, beat the American star 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 Wednesday and won the men's singles crown at the Australian Open tennis cham- pionships. Newcombe, seeded second, won the fourth set tie-breaker 9-7 to end the three-hour battle, billed as a clash of champions culminating six months of verbal warfare as to who was the better player. A capacity crowd of at Kooyong Stadium watched the struggle, played in 90-degree heat. Earlier, defending cham- pion Evonne Goolagong of Australia needed just 46 minutes to whip Martina Navratilova of Czechoslovakia 6-3, 6-2 in the women's singles final. Connors won the Australian, U.S. Open and Wimbledon titles last year and was generally rated the No. 1 player in the world. combe, meanwhile, was wide- ly recognized as the top player of 1973. He had beaten Con- nors in their only two meetings of 1974 and has bristled at the suggestion that Connors had surpassed him as No. 1. Despite the defeat, Connors was not about to concede his top ranking. "Just because I lose one match does not mean I am not the the young American said. "You can't win all of them all the time. Over the past three months I have won four or five tour- naments, so one loss does not make me a bum." Connors admitted New- combe was just too good in Wednesday's match, but said that on an indoor court, under different circumstances, the result could be different. The match was played outdoors, on grass. Newcombe, the 1973 cham- pion here, said he had no plans to shoot for the Grand Slam of tennis, since his commitment to World Team Tennis will prevent him from competing in the French Open. But. he does aim to win Forest Hills, and particularly Wimbledon. IT'S ON NOW... VANS' YEAR-END CLEARANCE ON AND ELECTROHOME an extra degree of excellence.
