Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 3, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 LAMBERT PREPARES FOR HIS FIRST SUPER BOWL Woods, Lambert top NFL rookies Locals leaving odors in opposition rinks Bronco ineptness puzzles Ingarfield, Burton By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor What does a junior hockey team do when they are faced with a baffling situation? Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League are faced with a puzzling problem and coach Earl Ingarfield and general manager Bill Burton are beside themselves searching for an answer. In a hurriedly called press conference Thursday afternoon both Ingarfield and Burton agreed that something must be done about the Bronco perfor- mances on the road. "We have allowed 60 goals in our last seven away games and that is said Burton. "And it must be said that Earl is in full agreement with me." Burton went on to say that it is always tough to win on the road. It is even much harder in junior hockey. But the Broncos.of late have gone beyond what can be toleranted. In 18 games away from the friendly con- fines of the Lethbridge Sportsplex the Broncos have won just five games. And big deal, was the way Ingarfield described it. "We have defeated Flin Flon twice, Edmonton, Win- nipeg and Calgary a single time said an upset coach. Burton and Ingarfield are certainly not giving up the ghost. They simply want to know what to do. As Ingarfield said, "we're not that bad a team. I just can't figure it out." While Ingarfield was in full agreement with Burton he did let the general manager do most of the talking. "I have to share the said Burton. He admitted that due to family illness he had been forced to leave a great deal of the work up to Ingarfield. The gathering was brought about simply because the Broncos are playing like pansies on the road. Their most recent exhibition of no-touch hockey came New Year's Day when they were belted 11-2 by the Medicine Hat Tigers. Burton did not, in all fairness, see the game. But he did make it very clear that he felt sorry for Ingarfield and trainer Dick Abel. "They had to stand in the box for hours of ex- asperation I'm said Burton. Visibly upset by what he had heard about the game Burton went on to say that possibly some of the Bron- cos have lost a little of their stomach when they play on the road. "Talking to them won't do the Burton added. "But you can bet that the majority of them will get hit in the pocketbook." Broncos will be on an extensive eight-game road trip while the Canada Winter Games take place and both Burton and Ingarfield are concerned. "When we started this season our main objective was to make the stated Burton. "We know we still have an excellent chance. But we have to shake this problem we have winning on the road. Burton again made it clear that the whole club faces fines. The Broncos are one of the top paying teams in the WCHL and according to Burton "a lot of our guys aren't earning their keep." Ingarfield and Burton both know the Broncos can be a physical team, when they want to be. Maybe they are too complacent away from home. They possibly feel they have nothing to worry about, that their positions are secure. Burton, and Ingarfield as well, will not put up with the situation much longer. You can bet on that. Broncos are at home to Brandon Wheat Kings Sun- day afternoon at two o'clock. The last time the two teams met in Lethbridge the Broncos ran the Kings out of the rink physically and carrie away 5-0 victors. "Why we can't do that on the road is beyond me." says Ingarfield. Left winger Stan Jensen will not be in the Bronco lineup Sunday or for that matter possibly two months. He will have knee surgery for torn ligaments today. Things just have to get better. NEW YORK (AP) Don Woods, a former quarterback turned running back who once considered a pro career with the Canadian Football League, and Jack Lambert, considered too light to be a standout middle linebacker, have been chosen by The Associated Press as the National Football League's offensive and defensive rookies, respectively, for the 1974 season. In balloting announced Thursday, Woods, of San Diego Chargers, and Lambert, of Pittsburgh Steelers, easily outdistanced their opposition. Secretariat is a daddy LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP.) The first thoroughbred offspr- ing of 1973's Triple Crown winner, Secretariat, was born late Wednesday night near here at' Walter M. Jefford Jr.'s Faraway Farm in northwest Fayette County. The brown filly, born 2Vz weeks prematurely, may also be the first thoroughbred born in 1975 anywhere in the United States. The mare was stakes winner My Card. The filly is reported in good condition. Harry Scott, the farm manager, said Thursday that the fact that the filly was foal- ed prematurely would not hurt her racing ability. Woods received 52 of a pos- sible 78 votes from a national panel of sports writers, in- cluding three representing each of the NFL's 26 teams. Running back Alvin Maxson of New Orleans Saints was a dis- tant second with four votes and guard John Hicks of New York Giants was third with three votes. Lambert had closer com- petition in the defensive balloting, attracting 26 votes. Tackle Carl Barzilauskas of New York Jets was runner-up with 14 votes. He was followed by ends Ed (Too Tall) Jones of Dallas Cowboys with 11 votes and John Dutton of Baltimore Colts with nine votes. Woods, a 6-foot-l, 210- pounder, spent his first three collegiate seasons as a quarterback at New Mexico Highlands, piling up 1J607 yards rushing and tossing 24 touchdown passes. Then, he transferred to the University of New Mexico and was the leading rushing quar- terback in U. S. college ranks, gaining 971 yards on 220 carries and scoring 11 times. He also passed for 869 yards and five touchdowns. Green Bay Packers picked Woods as the first of their two sixth-round choices in the NFL draft last January, tabb- ing him as a running back. With most veterans reporting late because of the players' strike, Woods sparkled in pre- season games. But when the Packers' veterans returned, including John Brockington and MacArthur Lane, he saw little action. RUN 'OME ON ME BIKE, DARLIN'? (THAT'S THE LASS YOU PACKED IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS V. AGO-REMEMBER? v---- Brandon Kings alone in second Lund fires three to spark Aeros SHOOTERS' As the festive season draws to a close most target shooters suddenly realise that they have not fired a shot since the last summer competition. However the quteter months ahead offer the opportunity to sharpen up through Indoor .22 shooting. Those that are going to take part in the Shooting Federation of Canada Postal Program for Handgun, Sporting Rifle, and Match Rifle should be getting their entries in now. Although entries will be accpeted until February 15th, it is to be recommended that the program be commenced before that date, or the shooter couid have difficulty firing the required number of targets without rushing prior to the March 15th deadline for mailing the targets back for scoring. Application forms can be obtained by writing to the Shooting Federa- tion of Canada, 333 River Road, Vanier City. Ontario K1L 8B9. Details are also available from Plainsman Sports Ltd. In this competition a certain number of marked targets are sent to the shooter who can shoot them at his leisure, provided that his shooting is witnessed by at least two other shooters. Rather than just practicing with no stimulus of competition the Postal Competition allows the shooter to compete with other shooters throughout Canada. Shooters are classified according to ability with those who have no Classification being required to shoot In the second highest Class. Expert, until a sufficient number of targets have been fired for classification. This is perhaps another advantage of the Postal Program, for those that lack a classification can earn one through the Postal Program. Ron Maclean, President of the K.O.C.R. rifle club in Calgary hag thrown the gaunlet, challenging Lethbridge marksmen to a team shoot, and the challenge has been accepted. On Sunday February 9th their 12 man team from Calgary will compete against Southern Alberta's best in a two stage event. 60 shots will be fired by each team member from a prone position, followed by a 20 round kneeling, 20 w y roun neeng, round sitting, 20 round standing competition to determine the sporting rifle team champions. 12 members of each team will shoot, with the top 10 score being counted. Frank Leffingwell is in charge of locating man Lethbridge team, and it is to be hoped that all the bes top the 12 re an s o e ope a a e est local marksmen will be at home rather than in Honolulu or Acapulco, for the Calgary team will be hard to beat.

KENKOTKAS DON MARINO BOB HOBBS ART BOURNE 1 SHEILA KING RITA BROOKS The CANADIAN PRESS Before the formation of the World Hockey Association, Larry Lund was doing nothing more than marking time in the now-defunct Western Hockey League. Lund, a centre from Pentic- ton, B.C., had seen his share of one point he was traded for the rights to two amateur players, and on an- other occasion was lent to an- other team. In February, 1972, Houston Aeros selected him in the WHA player draft. Lund show- ed the Aeros they made the right decision by scoring 54 goals and adding 98 assists in his first two seasons with the club. This season, he shows no sign of letting up. He notched his 22nd, 23rd and 24th goals of the season in Houston's 6-3 win over Michigan Stags Thursday night. The three goals give the 34- year-old Lund 55 points, just five short of Bobby Hull's league-leading total and three back of Quebec's Serge Ber- nier. In other WHA games Thurs- day, Cleveland Crusaders downed Indianapolis Racers 4- 1 and Vancouver Blazers Golden Suns shine TABER (Special) Bernie Syrenne and Dean Solheim each netted two goals for Taber Golden Suns Thursday night to lead their team to an 8-5 victory over Calgary Canucks in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

Each team took three major penalties. needed overtime to dispose of Phoenix Roadrunners, 3-2. The Aeros won their fifth consecutive game and their Bernier unanimous LOS ANGELES (AP) Quebec Nordiques' centre Serge Bernier, who has scored 27 goals in 33 games this season, was the only un- animous selection to the World Hockey Association's East Division all star team announced Thursday by WHA president Dennis Murphy. The 27 year old Bernier, who with 58 points trails Bobby Hull of Winnipeg Jets by two points for the WHA scoring lead, was the first choice on every ballot in the 14 team vote joining Hull of the West Division team as the only unanimous selections for the Jan. 21 contest to be held at the Edmonton Coliseum. Wayne Dillon of Toronto Toros and Ralph Eackstrom of Chicago Cougars were the other centres chosen to the East squad under the geographic format for the third annual game. .Dillon joined left wingers Frank Mahovlich and Paul Henderson of Toronto and Pierre Guite of Michigan Stags as new comers to the 18 man roster. Right wing Tom Simpson and newly ac- quired defenceman Jim Dorey also will represent Toronto. Tom Webster of New England Whalers and Rejean Houle of Quebec are the other right wingers. Cleveland Crusaders' Gerry Cheevers repeats as the No. 1 East goalie, followed in the balloting by Ai Smith of New England and all star freshman Andy Brown of In- dianapolis Racers. J. C. Tremblay of Quebec and Paul Shmyr of Cleveland will anchor the defence, with the New England tandem of Brad Selwood and Rick Ley on the second line.' Guite and Brown will be the only representatives of their teams unless coach Ron Ryan of the Whalers takes more in filling out the roster to at least 20 players. 24th in their last 31 at Houston. Lund scored the winning of the third period, then added another just a minute later to seal the win. At Cleveland, the Crusaders handed the Racers their 30th loss of the season in 36 games. "We're trying to play strict- ly a defensive said In- dianapolis coach Gerry Moore after the contest. "What can you say about a team that has lost 30 games." Richie Leduc led the Crusa- ders with his 10th and llth goals of the season. At Vancouver, Jimmy Jones' second goal of the game gave the Blazers the win in overtime. He scored the winner at when he fired his own rebound past Phoenix goaltender Gary Kurt. The goals were the first of the season that Jones has scored while the Blazers were not short-handed. He now has five goals. The victory moved the last- place Blazers to within one point of fourth-place Winnipeg Jets in the Canadian Division. The Blazers are undefeated in their last nine home games. Finley keeps trying Fernie is excellent Snow Valley at Fernie is reporting excellent conditions for skiers this weekend. They have a 27-inch base at the lodge, with eight feet at the top. All runs are now open and powder conditions prevail. At report time, it was 26 degrees with more snow falling. Westcastle is also open, but a ski report was unavailable. OAKLAND (AP) Charles Finley was scheduled, to appear in court today to ask that Jim (Catfish) Hunter be thrown back into Oakland A's deep pool of talent. "It is my opinion that Hunter still belongs to the the owner of baseball's world series champions said after the star of his team's pitching staff last season sign- ed Tuesday with New York Yankees. "If we win in the courts and the Yankees have played him prior to our winning, they will certainly be liable for tre- mendous Finley added. Neil Papiano, a Los Angeles attorney representing Finley in the case, was set to argue in county court today that a baseball arbitrator exceeded his authority in declaring the American League's 1974 Cy Young Award winner a free agent. The grounds for the unique ruling were that Finley breached Hunter's year contract by failing to pay to an insurance com- pany as Hunter requested. But in the suit seeking to overturn the arbitration ruling, Finley's lawyer contends the owner would have committed income tax fraud by meeting Hunter's demand. The right-handed Hunter quickly took advantage of his free agent status, listening to bids from most major league teams before deciding on the Yankees' offer which is re- ported to total million in bonus money, salary, pension, insurance coverage and legal fees. "It was a case where you reach in the cookie jar and get the best cookie you can Oakland pitcher Vida Blue said of Hunter's opportunity.
