TYPEWRITERS Warriors, Wolsey were missed badly Native Sons take two Elks lose Both Lethbridge entries in the Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League suffered one goal defeats over the, weekend. The Midget Elks dropped a 10-9 decision to High River Imperials at Henderson ice Centre Saturday, while the Warriors suffered their first loss'in league competition when they were edged 6-5 by Taber Kenway Imperials Sun- day. Jim Harde and Roy Djuve each scored a hat trick for High River, who had to come from behind a 5-2 deficit after the second period for their win. Roy Tupkal and Jim Kabeary added two markers apiece for the winners. For the Midget Elks, Dave .Snopek and Scott Jarvie scored twice each while singles came off the sticks of Dwayne Lendrum, Leroy Pavan, Greg Maxwell, Gerry Lypka, and Randy Syrenne. The Imperials were tagged with 11 minor penalties, one major and a misconduct while the Elks sat out 13 minors. Rick Kurio scored twice for Taber in their 6-5 win. Gordon Konno, David Baroldi, Curtis Nelson, and Russell Bowman had the other Taber goals, while Michelle Dumont, Greg Lewis, Bob Miles, Ron Moser, and Bob Quinnell scored for the Warriors. Lethbridge picked up eight of the 11 minor penalties hand- ed out, and the clubs split a pair of misconducts. Pronghorns absorb first real whipping By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer "You just can't lose two of your best ballplayers and ex- pect to knock off the top club in the league." That was about all Robin Fry had to say after his University of Lethbridge Pronghorns took an 87-55 shellacking at the hands of the University of Victoria Vikings Saturday night at the U of L gymnasium. Missing from the Pronghorn line up Saturday were Curt Wolsey, who left the team after the first semester, and league leading scorer Richard Foggo, who was sidelined with an ankle injury. Foggo picked up his injury in the early moments of a 57- 56 loss Friday to the same Vikings, and although he sparked a last minute com- eback which almost won that game, the ankle stiffened up overnight, and Fry decided it was best that the young guard give it a rest. The Pronghorns' other leader, forward Phil Letham, was back on beam Saturday after a tough night Friday, and he fired 24 points through the hoop to lead the club. "Phil played really said Fry. "And we got good ef- forts out of a couple of other players." "But generally, we did not play very well again. Of course, Victoria is pretty tough too so that didn't help." Jim Dudderidge scored 16 points to pace the coast club, whose two wins over the weekend put them all alone in first place of the Canada West Basketball League with a 6-2 record. Evan Jones and Paul Hodeweide were next in line with 13 points apiece as every Viking hit the scoresheet in the 32 point romp. Behind Letham for the Pronghorns was Roger Baldry, who picked up 12 LCI takes tournament, consolation to Zeniths REGINA (Special) Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Clipper Queens built up an 18-13 lead at halftime, and went on to down Moose Jaw Vanier Collegiate Spirits 40-29 to win the girls' championship of the 5th Annual Sodbuster High School Invitational Basketball Tournament Satur- day. In boys' action, Magrath Zeniths took the consolation title by defeating Nutana Collegiate of Saskatoon 51-33. Connie Frouws had 17 points to lead the Clipper Queens in the championship final while Debbie Wakelen added eight. Eve Drielich led Moose Jaw with eight points. Lethbridge had advanced to the final by defeating Central Collegiate of Regina 40-34 while Moose Jaw earned their berth by dumping Sheldon Williams, also of Regina, 38- 35. Sheldon Williams edged Central Collegiate 23-19 to take third place in the tour- nament. Winnipeg's Westwood Collegiate took the girls' con- solation by defeating Saska- toon Natana Collegiate 34-32. In other girls' games Satur- day, Westwood thrashed Neelin 32-16, and Nutana dumped Martin Collegiate 45- 31. In the boys' division, Ed Riley scored 12 points, eight of them in the second half, to lead Westwood Collegiate Warriors of Winnipeg to a 40- 29 triumph over Winnipeg Dakota Lancers in the cham- pionship final. Greg Doull added 10 points for Westwood while Kevin Drummond paced Dakota with 10. Dakota led 17-15 at the half. Neelin High School of Brandon defeated Martin Collegiate of Regina 65-45 to finish third. Westwood had nipped Neelin 48-46 earlier Saturday to advance to the final while Dakota had embarrassed Martin 65-24 en route to the final game. Magrath got by O'Neill High School of Regina 44-40 Satur- day morning before taking the consolation .title in the after- no.on. Nutana earned its berth in the consolation final by down- ing Central Collegiate of Regina 32-28.

Win moves Golden Suns up into fourth place RED DEER (CP) Taber Golden Suns held off a third period rally to defeat Red Deer Rustlers 6-5 in an Alberta Junior Hockey League game Sunday night before 800 fans. The victory moves the Golden Suns into fourth place as the defending champion Rustlers slump to fifth. Taber held period leads of 2- 0 and 3-1 and went ahead 5-1 early in the third before Red .Deer struck for three goals in three minutes. But Don Renner scored into an empty net with .29 seconds remaining, offsetting a later Red Deer marker by Barry Lassiter. Other Taber goals were scored by Randy Joevenazzo, Dean Solheim, Bob Miller, Tim O'Donnell and Tom Schreiber. George Wright had two and Gord Gustafson and Earle Switzer each had one for Red Deer. Red Deer outshot the Golden Suns 33-30 and Taber drew nine of 13 minor penalties and the game's only misconduct. Gary Smith and Grant Pushie each scored two goals Saturday night to lead Drumheller Falcons to a 7-3 Alberta Junior Hockey League victory over The Pass Red Devils. Drumheller led 1-0 after the first period and held a 4-1 edge going into the final frame. Other Falcon foals were scored by Ryan Wecker, Jim Nill and Bruce Small. The Pass got goals from Dave Lund, George Buat and Tom McMaster. Drumheller outshot the Red Devils 52-38 and the teams split 30 minor penalties. Drumheller also was assessed a 10 minute misconduct. Roger Mitchell's two goals paced the Falcons to a 7-5 win over Spruce Grove Mets Sun- day night. Bruce Hatton, Bruce Small, Jim Nill, Dennis Walfis and Ryan Wecker added singles for the winners. Vince Magnum fired two goals for the losers, with Wayne Turner, Paul Messier and Keith Hertz also scoring. Drumheller, which held period leads of 4-1 and 5-3, had a 38-36 edge in shots on goal. A two goal effort by Dave Scott paced Calgary Canucks to an 8-2 win over the Red Devils Sunday night. Calgary dominated the game, leading 2-1 after the first period and 5-2 after the second. Craig Millar, Rick Zapper- nuik, Lyle Murry, Mike Bachynski, Mendle Vysholid and Mike Mclvor all popped in singles for Calgary. Red Devils got goals from Perry Turnbull and Dave Lund.' points in perhaps his best per- formance of the year. Gary Paynton added 10. For the first time this season, the Pronghorns were never really in the game. It was four minutes into the contest before Baldry's two free throws got the locals on the Scoreboard, and with Vic- toria passing the ball quickly around the Pronghorn zone defence, the visitors built up a 39-28 lead by halftime. The Pronghorns, in contrast, seemed intent on holding the ball for several seconds before making a pass, which allowed the Vikings time to recover whenever they found themselves out of position on defence. Victoria continued to penetrate the zone in the se- cond half, using Dudderidge and Dave Mulcahy to great advantage inside, and steadily pulled away. The Vikings, who boast five players over clobbered the locals in the rebounding department. Mulcahy pulled down 15 boards and Dudderidge 13 as the winners bested the Pronghorns 49-32. Joey Sliackleford led Fry's club with eight rebounds, while Letham snatched seven. The Pronghorn full court press, which has been forcing an average of 38 turnovers this season, rattled the Vikings only 29 times Satur- day. Foggo still leads the league in scoring with a 20.3 average despite managing only 12 points on the injured ankle Friday, and he is expected to be ready this Friday when the Pronghorns host the Universi- ty of Alberta Golden Bears. The weekend series has a little sidelight of interest in that Dan Court, who played with the Pronghorns last season, will be wearing a Golden Bear uniform. The University of Victoria Vikettes took their second win in as many nights when they dumped the female Pronghorns 57-41 Saturday. The Pronghorns, playing with only seven players, and without the services of scor- ing leaders Kathy Peacock and Georgina Lester, fell behind early in the game, and could never catch the slick passing Vikettes. Lorna McHattie led the winners with 16 points as all but one Vikette hit the scoresheet. Lori Lilja was outstanding in a losing cause with 15 points while Jacy Fox hooped eight and Sandra Knight had six points for the locals. Fox was also outstanding on the boards, as she pulled down 13 rebounds, tops in the game. The other teams in the Canada West University Athletic Association do not resume their schedule until next weekend, but three of the men's clubs picked up exhibi- tion wins Saturday. Dean Faris collected 24 of his game high 32 points in the second half to lead the Univer- sity of Saskatchewan Huskies to a 78-73 win over North Dakota Tetons in Saskatoon. Paul Jacoby added 12 points for the winners, who were forced to come back from a 41-30 deficit at halftime.. At Vancouver, UBC Thunderbirds shot 51% from the floor as they built up a 41- 24 halftime lead and coasted to an 82-53 win over U of Regina Cougars. Steve Pettifer and Blake Iverson led the T-Birds with 12 points each. Pat Lee ripped the cords for 37 big points in Calgary to lead his U of C Dinosaurs'to a 70-56 triumph over Brandon Bob- cats. HOOP SHOTS Baldry had a fine shooting performance Saturday as he hit six of his ten shots the Pronghorns as a team did not do as well, clicking only-33% of the time, while the Vikings shot at "a 447o norm coach Fry had his boys out for a meeting Saturday afternoon at one he was pretty upset after their poor performance Friday Max Zaugg saw action in the final two minutes of Satur- day's game he and the other newcomer to the team, Ross Blackmer, should see more floor lime next weekend Fry was reluctant to use them after having had only a workout with the club. The Lethbridge Native Sons took .to the road over the weekend, and came home with another pair of Central Alberta Junior B Hockey League wins under their belts. Saturday night, they dumped Rocky Mountain House 6-1, and then on Sunday, Olds Cascaders fell to the locals 12-5. Albert Dumont was the star of the first game, scoring three for the Sons, who built up period leads of 2-0 and 5-1 en route to the victory. Dave Hougan, Greg Kveder and Ken Klinkhammer scored the other goals. Cliff Green had the only goal for Rocky Mountain House, who oiitshbt the Native Sons 23-21. The locals took eight of the nineteen penalties assessed, On Sunday, it was Dwayne Howell's turn to notch a hat trick. Linemates Terry Roberts and Glen Scheibner scored two goals each, and Scheibner picked up four assists as the trio really turned on the steam. Other Native Son goals came off the sticks of Dave Hougan, Reg Osmond, Dennis Halt, Ken Kiinkhammer, and Greg Kveder. The Native Sons led 3-1 after one period, and increas- ed their margin to 8-4 after two. They took six of 14 minor penalties. The two wins boost the locals' season record to 17-1, with their next action being next weekend when they host The Pass and Fort Macleod including the game's only ma- for Saturday and Sunday jor. contests.
