"They simply blew us off the court." He was referring to his team's 100-51 shellacking that they suffered at the hands of the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks at the LCC gym Friday night. Kenyon's club came into Lethbridge sporting an un- blemished 5-0 record in league play, and while he expected his charges would have to bat- tle to stay with the Kodiaks, he did think they had a chance at beating them. "If we can force them to make mistakes and then take advantage of those errors we could take this he said prior to the start. "I knew they would be tough, but they really hurt us. Their rebounding was superb, there was no 'way our boys could cope with Kenyon stated after the game. One of the main reasons behind the Kodiaks one sided win, besides pulling in 56 rebounds as a team, was the outstanding play of Glen Schuler. "Shoe" pulled in 11 rebounds and his 19 points was tops for the club. He was also responsible for four steals. "He was .LCC coach Ben Brooks stated. "When you consider he was just coming of the flu you must really appreciate the ef- fort he put in. He was follow- ing through on every fast break and playing strong defence." The win moves the Kodiak record in league play to seven wins without a loss. Prior to the Kodiak's big victory, the Kodiettes won their sixth game of the year against one defeat, as they defeated Mount Royal Kittens 52-48. Jan Paton was the gal who put the icing on the cake for the Kodiettes when she sank two free throws with only seven seconds left in the contest to put the game out of the Kitten's reach. The Kittens, trailing 50-48, with less than a minute left, had their chances to knot the game but missed two consecutive shots from the floor. The Kittens had to com- mit a foul on Paton in order to get the ball back. But the strategy failed and the Kodiettes ended with a four point cushion instead of two. Val Charteris was the top scorer for the Kodiettes with 10 points while Shirley Yuill and Doreen Gurney were next in line with nine apiece. Gurney led the rebounders with four. The Kodiettes held a narrow two point lead at the half, 24- 22. Foul shooting played an im- portant part in the game as Minor hockey week busy for 950 boys in Lethbridge Minor Hockey Week, today through to Saturday, Jan. 25, will be celebrated in Lethbridge with a special schedule of hockey games involving all 57 of the teams involved in the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association.

Over 950 boys are registered in the Minor Hockey Association which is celebrating its 20th anniversary in Lethbridge.

ALLEN READY ATLANTA (AP) Slugger Dick Allen's "most fervent desire is to be on a pennant- winning team, Atlanta Braves executive vice-president Ed- die Robinson said Friday. the Kodiettes made 14 of 27 attempts, many of those late in the game when the'pressure was on, while the Kittens could only cash in on four of 13. Michele Courauble was the top Kitten, hooping 13 points. Kodiak coach Ben Brooks was extremely pleased with his club's defensive efforts. His club, at the beginning of the second half, outscored the Cougars 28-2 in the first 11 minutes of play. "That is an indication of what we are capable of doing on he said. Brooks echoed Kenyon's praise of the Kodiak board game. "We knew we could control the boards, we have the men to do it. We took away their inside and forced them to shoot the long ones." Dave Preus was the leading rebounder for the Kodiaks as the big Tennessee native pull- ed down 14. He also rammed home 15 points. Greg Hess, who hit on a number of 20 footers, added 17 points to the Kodiak cause. Kendon Eakett played another outstanding game for the homestanding Kodiaks, firing 14 points and assisting on seven. "Kendon sets the mood of our club. He's an aggressive player and he's not to be Brooks said and also added that John Jasiukiewicz was a strong man in the Kodiak attack. Jasiukiewicz, who is always hustling while on the court, got into foul difficulties early in the game, but still managed to add 10 points to the total ans assist on four others. The Cougar cause was hampered in the first two minutes of play when starting guard Doug Smith came down hard on a rebound attempt and severely sprained his left ankle. Tow men, Kelly O'Brady and Darryl Turko, hooped 13 points apiece for the Cougars while the next highest scorer was Joe McLaughlin with eight. REBOUNDS The Kodiaks hit for 46% from the floor and made 16 of 24 foul shots Cougars' big gun Stu Bauck was held to only five points by the tough Kodiak defence one fan figured out that if John Jasiukiewicz continued to get fouls at the rate he was in the first 10 minutes he'd have 12 by the end of the game Shelley Reeder fouled out of the Kodiettes game the Cardston gal still managed to add six points to the Kodiette cause despite leaving 11 minutes early coach Ben Brooks substituted freely throughout the game Cur- tis Travis and Wayne Anderson played strong games as well for the winners and were the authors of some pin point passing at times... Travis hooped seven points while Anderson banged in six. the LCC video tape cameraman also had two points in the game a deflected pass hit his camera and dropped straight through the hoop on one of the side backboards the game was definitely the best that Glen Schuler has played at home this year... the Kodiettes and the Kodiaks both played teams from SAIT this after- noon in league play Paton looks like a fine addition to the Kodiette squad.
