Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THI ICTHBltlDGf HERAIO - Tuesday, January 12, 1971 Complete three-game sweep at home Chinooks make it look easy By LLOYD YAMAGISM Herald Sports Writer Coach Logan Tait and manager Gary Bowie were both overjoyed as the University of Lethbridge Chinooks completed a three-game sweep by bombing the University of Saskatchewan Regina Cougars 92-57 in a Western Canada Inter - Collegiate basketball gome Monday night at the Civic Centre. JUDO CLUB MEMBERS HONORED - It was a big night for the lethbridge YMCA Judo Club recently as awards For the year were presented at a special gathering of the club members and their parents. Honored at the gathering were front row, left to right, Steven Tsujiura, Ross Math- eson, Michael Colder, Doug Crawford and Bart Green-way.

Ullman offensive sparkplug Toronto hottest club in league MONTREAL (CP) - Last Dec. 8, Toronto's Maple Leafs were tied for last place with Buffalo Sabres in the National Hockey League's East Division. But since that time the Leafs have become the hottest property in either their own or the league's West Division. An analysis of the Leafs current streak, in which they have taken 27 of a possible 30 points ui their last 15 games, discloses some amazing performances. After their game of Dec. 8, which they lost 4-0 to Pittsburgh Penguins, the Leafs and the Sabres each had 15 points. At that point Toronto had seven wins and one tie and had scored 75 goals with 94 against. In their current 15-ganrre treak, they have won 13, tied one arid lost one game. Minnesota North Stars, incidentally, was the only team to atop Toronto during that period. The Stars whacked the Leafs 6-3 at Minnesota and then tied them 4-4 at Toronto. The big story lies in the Toronto goal production of 69 and the club's defensive record of only 23 goals against, 10 of these by the North Stars, which means in the other 13 games, the Leafs were beaten for only 13 goals. Before the streak started, the Toronto goaltending record was the poorest in the league with an average of 3.62. Today it is 2.85 and during the 15-game streak it was 1.53. In that period, Jacques Plante and Bruce Gamble each recorded two shutouts and shared another. Offensively, the sparkplug has been centre Norm Ullman, whose 29 points during the stretch equalled the point output by leading scorer Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins in his last 15 games. Ullman scored 13 goals and added 16 assists to boost his season's point total to 52 from 23 he had in Toronto's first 26 games. The Toronto line of Ullman, Ron Ellis and Paul Henderson has been the second-highest scoring unit in the league in the last 15 games with 64 points. This compares with the Boston trio of Esposito, Ken Hodge and Wayne Cashman, which had 6b points in the Bruins last 15 games. However, the Toronto trio produced 30 goals, one more than the Boston line. Bobby Orr runner-up Blanda named top athlete NEW YORK (CP) - George Blanda, the 43-year-old grey-beard sub quarterback and kicking specialist of Oakland Raiders football team whose last gasp heroics gave new hope to the middle-aged, has been named Male Athlete of the Year by The Associated Press. The ageless marvel of the gridiron, who excelled in a tough contact sport competing against athletes half his age, beat out a glittering array of stars in assorted sports in the year-end poll of sports writers end broadcasters. Blanda received 332 votes compared with 246 for de-fenceman Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins National Hockey League team who was runner-up, and 224 for Johnny Bench, slugging catcher of Cincinnati Reds' baseball team who was a close third. Orr was chosen Canada's Male Athlete of the Year in & poll conducted by The Cana- dian Press and Sportsman of the Year by the magazine Sports Illustrated. The 6-foot-2, 215-p ound Blanda, broke into pro football with Chicago Bears in 1949. During his 21-year career which covered 10 years with the Bears and seven with Houston Oilers before he moved to Oakland, Blanda set numerous records, but none carried the impact of his dramatic come-from-behind ex-ploits during the 1970 season. In mid-season, Blanda put on such a show of last minute miracles that football buffs couldn't wait to rurn on their TV sets to see what the old man might do next. On Oct. 25 against Pittsburgh Stealers Blanda came off the bench as a replacement for the Raiders' No. 1 quarterback, Daryle Lamon-ica, and threw three touchdown passes in a 31-14 Oakland victory. reDireiaenb Enrich your retirement income with deferred tax savings.
