The Clubs, coasting along with a 4-1 lead early in the third period, settled into defensive hockey. But their drionce wasn't good enough as the Tigers came roaring back with four goals, including two in the last minute, for a 5-4 victory on home ice. In other games, Edmonton Oil Kings mastered Calgary Centennials 9-1 and New West- minster Bruins and Karnloops Chiefs battled to a 5-5 tie in Kamloops. The Clubs had built up a 4-1 edge on two goals by Gord Blumenshein and singles by Guy Lash and Kelly Green- bank. Morris Lukowich scored for the Tigers late in the se- cond period and Barry Dean had two midway through the Will Foggo be ready for tonight The big question on Hobin Fry's mind today is whether or not Kichard Foggo will be (in the floor in his guard position at the U of L gymnasium. The University of j Lethbridge Prongh'orns host University of Alberta Golden Bears lor a pair of Canada West- basketball contests tonight and Saturday, but Foggo, who leads the Pronghorns, and the league, in scoring, is a doubtful starter. Foggo injured an ankle in a game with Victoria last Saturday, and has not been work- ing out extensively all week. The Bears, in second place in the league with a 4-2 record, will still have their hands full with the likes of Phil L e t h a m. Lauren E d1u nd. and Joey Shackleford. The Pronghorns will also have two new- comers ready for use. Max Zaugg, who played for the club last season, and Ross Blackmer, from the LCI, should see some floor time after a full week of workouts with the team. Of interest to Southern Alberta fans will be the presence of Dan Court in the Bear lineup. Court wore a Pronghorn jersey for iwo seasons before heading for Edmonton. Game time tonight and Saturday is p.m.. following the women's game at third period to bring the Tigers close. Don Murdoch scored on a rebound at to tie the game and then set up Lukowich for the winner with 10 seconds left to play. MEDICINE HAT S. WINNIPEG 4 Period: 1. Winnipeg, Blumenshein (McCarthy.

Attendance Molleken, Samis return to face Broncos tonight By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor When Bill Burton traded Dean Samis and Lome Molleken to Winnipeg Clubs for Gary Wagner and the rights to other players, he did so with regret. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to he said at the time. "I wish them both all the success in the world." Well, the Clubs haven't set the world on fire since obtaining the pair from the Broncos. They did, however, win the first meeting between the two teams after the trade was made and they won it. handily. Broncos, on the end of a three-game sw- ing through Saskatchewan and Manitoba, were belted 8-3 by the Clubs in Winnipeg. Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield admitted his club was not up for the game. He didn't take anything away from the Clubs either. "They played said Ingarfield on his return two weeks back. "We didn't play well at all." Broncos have chalked two wins this week. Sunday they trimmed Brandon Wheat Kings 5-3 and then stuck it to the Flin Flon Bombers to the tune of 9-1 Wednesday. Brian Sutter and Bryan Trottier were back in the line up Wednesday night. Trottier was almost a one man show as he scored twice and set up four others. In Sutler's case, it may be a warning the Clubs should heed. "We scored nine goals and I didn't gel a pondered the Broncos' leading rookie scorer. Broncos, caught up in the numbers game according to Burton, released Garth Morgan Thursday and as well signed Steve Lee and Bill Jobson to Junior B cards. The Broncos have to be down to the 19 player limit this evening. "And we also had to make allowances for the return of Greg Woods and then Stan Jensen. Woods is due back next week while Jensen will be on the shelf until March at least. Game time tonight at the Sportsplex is set for eight o'clock.

(AP) Pitcher Ferguson Jenkins pre- sented a six-point counter- proposal to Texas Rangers front office Thursday on his 1975 contract, but general manager Danny O'Brien said the American League baseball Miller opens with a 67 PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP) Johnny Milier, exhibiting the quiet confidence and crisp shotmaking that won him player of the year honors last season, opened the 1975 pro golf tour with a four-under- par 67 and a share of the first- round lead Thursday in the Phoenix Open.. "I had an opportunity to tear it wide open and didn't take advantage of said Miller, who was six-under-par at one time but plummeted back into a three-way tie for the top with a double-bogey six late in the round. Miller, winner of eight titles in the United States and a record last season, shared the top spot in this scheduled opening event with Leonard Thompson and John Mahaffey. Tied at 68, just one shot off the lead in the chilly, windy weather were J. C.

The Rangers offered Jenkins, who was narrowly edged in the Cy Young balloting by Jim (Catfish) Hunter, a package calling for an estimated Asked about Jenkins' proposals, O'Brien said: "Well, he started out asking for a built-in sprinkler system. Of course, I'm just kidding, but what he wanted was darn close to it." No further talks were sch- eduled immediately between Jenkins, who was reported to be in the to bracket last year. "We sent him a contract for what we considered a fair raise." O'Brien said. "The Rangers are certainly willing to pay him a price consistent with the major league level. The talks were amiable but far apart." O'Brien said Jenkins did not use as a negotiating wedge the recent millin the club of- fered Hunter, who became a free agent from Oakland A's and eventually signed with New York Yankees for an es- timated million. "We have narrowed down the area of our disagreement and there are some thing we can do and we can't said O'Brien. "There certainly is a vast difference of opinion right now." Jenkins was reported to be asking for a package in the bracket. two goals and Cliff Block, Alvin Tietz and Bill Blenner Hassett rounded out the scoring. Bob Balaz accounted for both goals for the Knights. LAKERS EARN WIN Stirling Lakers dropped the Milk River Comets 64-44 in Southwest Conference high school basketball play.

The Globetrotters, complete with their fancy dribbling, zany antics, great shooting, and entertaining basketball presen- tation, will be appearing at the Lethbridge Sportsplex, Sunday at 7 p.m. taking on the New York Nationals. In their 49th year as a travelling showcase of basketball, the Trotters provide one of the few truly family shows available today. Names like Meadow Lark Lemon, Marquis Haynes or Bob "Showboat" Hall have become synonymous with basketball skills as well as entertaining antics during the games. The Trotters are not all comedy however, as they have produced some of the world's best basketball players over the years. One of the greats of the game. Wilt Chamberlain, was once a member of the touring Globetrotters. When Abe Saperstein organized the team 49 years ago he called them the Globetrotters and that's exactly what they have become. The entire world, from Moscow to'Paris or from Leningrad to Lethbridge. have welcomed the Trotters and their "unique brand of entertainment. Basketball won't be the only attraction Sunday. During the half time show, which is often as entertaining as the Trotters themselves, an exhibition of world class table ten- nis will be presented. Robert Ashley and Steve Dodgen, the U.S. and Norweigan table tennis champions respectively, will dazzle the audience with their skills and the speed which they play this game. The Globetrotters, stars of their own TV series the Harlem Globetrotter Popcorn Machine, have played nearly basketball games the world over. They have lost only 323 games and have a winning average of .972. Tickets are priced at for adults and for youths. Greg Woods .............8 21 29 Jerry Bancks Stan.
