Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 6, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Flin Flon crew enjoyed weekend LETHBRIDGE BRONCOS' JERRY BANCKS (19) DIGS AWAY AT A LOOSE PUCK SUNDAY Bancks scores twice as locals upend Wheat Kings 5-3 Team effort returns Broncos to second By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor The past few days have been long ones for the Lethbridge Broncos. Since an 11-2 lacing at the hands of the Medicine Hat Tigers New Year's Day, the sun has not found much time to shine. However, with faithful supporters in the Lethbridge Sportsplex Sunday afternoon the Broncos con- tinued their home mastery over the Wheat Kings of Brandon with a 5-3 victory. In three home outings against the Wheat Kings the Broncos have won all three, 6-2, 5-0 and now 5-3. Wheat Kings, on the other hand, have won both games in Brandon 5-4 and 5-3. The win moved the Broncos into sole-possession of se- cond place in the eastern division of the Western Canada Hockey League. Broncos now have 38 points, nine less than division-leading Saskatoon Blades and one more than the Wheat Kings. Coach Earl Ingarfield was his smiling self outside the Bronco dressing room Sunday. The past few days haven't been all that easy for him. "1 thought our guys played a solid the coach said. "They all hustled both ways and that's how you win games." Ingarfield was somewhat surprised by the forecheck- ing of the Wheat Kings. "They didn't do that much forechecking in the first four games we played them he said. Ingarfield did not single out any players. But he was pleased with the work of the Jerry Bancks, Les Crozier and Gary Wagner line. Bancks paced the Broncos with a pair of goals and an assist while Crozier notched a singleton and two helpers. "How do you like said a happy Wagner in the dressing room after the game. "My linemates each get three points and I come up empty." Bill Jobson, with his first of the year and Steve Lee accounted for the remainder of the Bronco goals with singles. Dan Bonar, Gerald Stoughton and Mike Bradbury replied for the Wheat Kings. Both clubs fired 34 shots at their opposition's net. Rollie Boutin, in goal for the Broncos was able to stop 31 while Gien Hanlon blocked 29 for the Kings. Brandon got the nod on eight of 15 minor penalties whistled down by referee Gerry Gray. Broncos picked up two majors to Brandon's one while Gary Soetart raised the ire of Gray in the third period and was assessed a 10- minute misconduct and then a game-misconduct. Broncos were Johnny's on the spot the first three times they scored. After Brandon's Hanlon had made the initial stop the Broncos jumped on three rebounds as Job- son, Lee and Bancks, with his first, took advantage of the loose puck. Jobson scored at the midway mark of the opening period as he converted a loose puck after Bancks had taken a hard shot. Lee came back eight minutes later and found the same spot as Jobson beating Hanlon on the ice to his glove side. Crozier had fired a close in shot that Hanlon blocked. The netminder couldn't find the rebound and Lee slipped it in. Bancks notched his first goal of the game after Bonar had gotten the Wheat Kings back in the game with a goal at the mark of the second period. Bonar, the Kings' best player all day, walked in alone on Boutin, faked his shot and when Boutin went down he fired the puck high into the Bronco net. Just 26 seconds later, with Bob Mullett off for Brandon on a hooking call, Bancks worked his way from the Brandon corner, out in front of Hanlon and fired a quick shot. Again, Hanlon made the initial save but let the puck loose and Bancks fired it home. Bancks and Crozier combined on the Broncos' fourth goal as Bancks, all alone, in front, took Crozier's perfect pass and gave Hanlon no chance. Crozier got his goal in the third period on a neat bit of patience. He picked up a loose puck in the Brandon end and cut in front of the net. He hung on and hung on and then finally, after Hanlon had made his move he fired it high into the top corner. Trailing 5-1 Stoughton picked up a rebound off the backboards and beat Boutin cleanly. Bradbury scored at the mark of the third but the damage had been done. Broncos are at home to Flin Flon Bombers at eight Wednesday night at the Sportsplex. LOOSE PUCKS-Broncos will see themselves Tues- day as they were filmed on video tape "It helps point out little things you can.'t otherwise says Ingarfield Both clubs dressed just 17 players for the game and both looked tired at the end of the game Bronco's Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutler will be back in the line- up Wednesday They have been with Team Canada Broncos missed some glorious scoring chances Alec Tidey hit the goal post twice and Doug Gillespie once Dale Anderson, in attempting to throw a check, may have broken a bone in his right leg The Brandon defenceman went into the boards heavily...

Sunday's stars other than first star Bancks, were Bonar the second star and Jobson third. BRONCOS 5 BRANDON 3 First Period: 1. Lethbridge, Jobson (Tidey. Bancks) 2. Lethbridge.

Attendance Canada gave away all four goals in disappointing 4-3 loss You can't make defensive errors against Soviets The Canadian Press The Soviet Union retained its world junior hockey title Sunday by converting Cana- dian errors into a 4-3 victory before spectators in Winnipeg. A tie would have given the VLADIMIR KUCHERANKO, LEFT, AND VICTOR KHATULEV Canadians the championship on a better goals-for-and- against record. Meanwhile, Sweden got a power-play goal midway through the final period to tie Czechoslovakia 2-2 at Bran- don, Man., and, in the final game of the round-robin tour- nament, Finland downed the United States 4-2 in Minneapolis. The Soviet Union ended the series unbeaten in live games followed by Canada 4-1-0, Swe- den 2-2-1, Czechoslovakia 1-2- 2, Finland 1-3-1, and the U.S. 0-5-0. Coach Jackie McLeod said his Canadians "came up a lit- tle short." Coreyell top NFL coach NEW YORK (AP) Don Coryell, who turned the dis- spirited St. Louis Cardinals from perennial losers into divisional champions, was named by The Associated Press Saturday as 1974 coach of the year in the National Football League. The 50-year-old Coryell was a landslide winner, receiving 50 of a possible 78 votes from a national panel of sports writers, including three representatives from each of the NFL's 26 teams. "We've got a lot of big shooters on fhis he said, "but they didn't get the shots away enough. The Soviet defence played well." Bryan Trottier of Lethbridge, Alta., Broncos, one of the 24 Western Canada Hockey League players who made up the Canadian team, also praised the Soviet defence. "They're very tough in the "Everydefence we played here was tough, but not in the same class as the Russians." Errors by Canadian defen- cemen produced all the'Soviet goals. The first came on a first-period power-play when the puck was checked into the net by Canadian defenceman Kevin McCarthy. The second one came after both Canadian defencemen, missed a loose puck at thej edge of the goal, and the third! and fourth goals were set when the defence gave up the puck inside the blueline and then allowed Soviet forwards to" skate in unmolested on goaltender Doug Soetaert. Soviet coach Yuri Morozov said the Canadian defence "made many mistakes. The first and second goals were primarily on defensive failures by Canada." The Soviets held period leads of 2-1 and 4-1 but a Cana- dian rally in the third cut the margin to 4-3. Danny Arndt, who scored Canada's third goal at with a quick shot when Brian Klassen won the faceoff, had a chance to tie the game mo- ments later on a similar setup. "He tried for the opposite corner that time and the Soviet goalie made a tremen- dous said McLeod. In the final minute Brian Sutler had half an open net, but his shot from the edge of the crease hit the outside edge of the goal. Boris Alexandrov scored twice for the Soviets and Vic- tor Khatulev, the most valuable player in the tour- nament, and Boris Chuchin added one each. Trottier, Arndt and Rick LaPointe scored for Canada. In Brandon, defenceman Bjoern Johansson scored at of the final period to give Sweden the tie and preserve Us hold on third place. Kent Nilsson got the other Swedish U.S.S.R. 4 CANADA 3 Firit Period: 1. Soviet Union. Alex- androv (Babinov, Kucherenko) 2. Canada, Trottier (Greenbank. Sutler) 3.
