The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, 22, 1t74 THE LETHBftlDOE HERALD -11 Baceda comes through, tough raise does trick By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "Well the old man still has a couple of good shots left in him." This was Enso Baceda of Lethbridge describing himself after he had just sidelined Scott Henderson in the second game of the final of the District 2 men's playdowns. For Henderson, who had forced Baceda the limit in the 9-8 game, it was a feeling of some dejection. You come ever so close, but not quite close enough. It was Henderson who forc- ed the playdown to a shown- down battle after stopping Baceda 10-8 Sunday night. Baceda was the "A" section winner while Henderson battl- District 2 champs Enso Baceda scored a slim 9-8 victory over Scott Henderson Monday in the final of the District 2 men's curling playdown. The winners are, front left to right, skip Baceda and third Rick Overn. Back, left to right are second Paul Stevenson and lead Russ McCune. Shockey superb., Kodiaks triumph It could be a big second half for the Lethbridge Communi- ty College Kodiaks in the Alberta College Athletic Conference. Ben Brooks, coach of the College men's club, made it clear at the start of the season that the second half would tell the tale of the success of the Kodiaks. And with the meat of the schedule yet to come, he could be right. Newcomer John Shockey was superb Monday as he hooped 27 points in leading the Kodiaks to a one-sided 119-43 victory over Grand Prairie College. The Kodiettes, on the other hand, took it on the chin to the tune of 63-43. The same clubs meet again this after- noon. The gals tangled at two while the men's game was set for four. Shockey hit for 16 points in the second half to go with a solid 11-point first half perfor- mance. Rob Hansen canned 16 for the Kodiaks while Gary Williams and Brent Fairbanks chipped in with 15 apiece. Cahoon added 13 while Alan Pard managed 10. Ron Stojan hit for 15 for Grande Prairie. In the gals encounter Marilyn Scheunage and Louise Berle, together with Sue Wright, accounted for 58 points in their convincing triumph over the Kodiettes. Both Scheunage and Berle scored 20 points while Wright followed closely with 18. Shirley Yuill replied with 20 for the Kodiettes. Shellee Reeder added 10. Kodiaks are at home to Red Deer Friday night. ed his way back from a second round loss to John Barren of Picture Butte Friday night, the second day of the playdown. While it may not go down in the annals of curling as a classic contest, Monday's game was one of the best at the Lethbridge Curling Club in sometime. Intent on giving the gather- ing their monies worth, both rinks were at times brilliant. However, like true showmen, both Baceda and Henderson saved their best for last. Baceda was in the driver's seat heading home in the 12th end as he held hammer. Content to have his front end of lead Russ McCune, se- cond Paul Stevenson and third Rick Overn simply keep a clean house, Baceda left a pair of rocks in the front of the house, joining one of Hender- son's. Henderson, knowing full well it was time to pull out all the stops, drew a beautiful shot into the four foot ring, hidden by a rock of Baceda's as well as one of his own. Baceda, in attempting to tap Henderson's shot rock from the other side, was light and nudged the Henderson granite onto the button. Henderson, with his second shot, laid a perfect guard to one side of the counter stone forcing Baceda into another raise situation. That was where Baceda came up with one of those cou- ple of shots the old man still had in his bag of tricks. He raised his own rock from the four foot onto Henderson's and stayed to count one. Baceda and his mates now travel to Calgary Jan. 24-27 for the Southern Alberta finals. It was a well-earned trip. Baceda lost but one game dur- ing the five days of action. But his biggest was Mon- day's as he outlasted a stub- born Henderson and his quar- tet of lead Red Irvine, second Steve Gillies and third Dennis Kjeldgaard. It was anybody's game until theJZth. Henderson wouldn't say die after Baceda picked up two in the first end. It was 2-2 after two with Henderson counting a pair. Baceda came up with singles in the third and eighth to go with doubles in the sixth and 10th. Henderson, on the other hand, scored once in each of the fourth and ninth ends as well as twice in the seventh and llth. But it wasn't quite enough. EXPOS INK TWO MONTREAL (CP) In- fielder Larry Lintz and out- fielder Jim Lyttle have agreed to 1974 contract terms with Montreal Expos, Jim Fanning, general manager of the National League club, an- nounced Monday. The signing of Lintz and Lyttle brings to 16 the number of players on the club's 38- man winter roster Just who is who in Washington? Esposito dips below goal-a-game average MONTREAL (CP) Centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins continued to lead the National Hockey League's individual scoring race today, but for the first time this season he has dipped below his goal-a-game pace. Going into tonight's game in Carleton continues torrid pace SANTA ANA, Calif. (CP) Toronto's Wayne Carleton continues to pace the World Hockey Association scoring derby in official statistics re- leased Monday by the league offices. The Toros centre has 27 goals and 43 assists for 70 points and a six-point lead over Jim Harrison of Ed- monton Oilers. Danny Lawson of Vancouver Blazers is in third place with 61 points, in- cluding a league-leading 34 goals. Houston Aeros' Andre Hinse leads the rookies with 45 points, two more than Claude St. Sauveur of the Blazers, while Mark Howe of Houston has 41 points as a first year man.

The Boston-St. Louis clash was one of three games scheduled, with Cali- fornia Golden Seals visiting New York Islanders in another, and the high-flying Philadelphia Flyers in Van- couver against the lowly Canucks in the third. But while he is off his goal- a-game clip today, Esposito remained the only player to occupy the same position among the league's top scorers today that he held one year ago After 42 games last season, Esposito led the race with 66 points and 29 goals. Three other players among the top 10 this season were also in that group one year ago. Miller tops money list NEW YORK (AP) Johnny Miller isn't winning all the money on the prof golf tour this most of it. Miller's victories in the Bing Crosby national pro-am, the Phoenix Open and the Tucson only three tournaments played this earned him the Professional Golfers' Association (PGA) tournament players' division said Monday. That's about more than anyone else has won, and represents a PGA record for the most money earned in three consecutive weeks on the tour. Miller picked up in Tucson during the weekend, but he also picked up a cold and a sore throat that will keep him out of this week's San Diego Open. Grier Jones is second on the money list with followed by Lanny Wadkins, Ben Crenshaw, and Jerry Heard, Statistics released by the NHL today, comparing 1972-73 and this season for the current leaders, show that defenceman Bobby Orr of Boston, runner-up to Esposito today, is 30 points ahead of his total of one year ago. Orr now has 74 points, including 21 goals, while last year he had 11 goals and 44 points after missing 14 games because of a knee injury. The next best advance is by centre Norm Ullman of Toronto Maple Leafs who is in a ninth-place tie with centre Jacques Lemaire of Montreal Canadiens. Ullman has 18 goals and 48 points, a 24-point increase over last season when he had missed 13 games through injury at this point in the schedule. Lemaire, on the other hand, was second last season with 60 points, in- cluding a league-leading 32 goals. He now has 17 goals and 48 points. Bernie Parent of Philadelphia recorded his ninth shutout of the season last week and the Flyers have a league-leading goals-against average of 1.95. Second is Chicago with a 2.19 average. When Pittsburgh beat the Flyers 5-3 in Philadelphia last Sunday night, it was the most goals given up by Parent in a game this season. WASHINGTON (AP) Without a program, it will be difficult to tell who is who on the Washington sports scene. Then again, it might be troublesome even with a name guide. The sports explosion burst on the scene in the United States capital Monday with the formal news conference announcements of teams in the World Football League (WFL) and the North American Soccer League (NASL) and naming of the local entry in the National Hockey League. The Washington-Baltimore entry in the WFL announced a fans' contest to the winner, al- though the franchise corpo- ration name is the Washington Capitals Inc. The football team, however, is not to be confused with the Washington Capitals who will be an expansion team in the NHL next season, and who also held a contest to name their team. "We were delighted with the more than entries submitted during the past two said Abe Pollin, owner of the hockey team and the Capital Centre in Largo, Md., which will be the club's home ice. "It took me eight to 10 hours, but I looked at every one. The names were novel, clever and very original, but I felt the 'Washington Capitals' best described our entry in the National Hockey League." Eighty-eight persons sub- mitted the name Capitals al- though more fans entered such names as the Comets, Blades, Ice-Caps and Pandas. The Washington Capitals, however, are not to be confus- ed with Capital Bullets of the National Basketball Associa- tion who play in the Centre and also are owned by Pollin.

Nick Mangione, a Baltimore builder and investor, and Mike Finci, an insurance company owner, will run the team. VIOLLET NAMED Dennis Viollet, a former player for Manchester United of English League soccer and coach of the now-defunct Baltimore Bays, has been named manager-coach of the Diplomats. Joseph Wheeler Jr., a Wash- ington builder, will head the WFL franchise and will do the drafting today of college play- ers although he has had the franchise only eight days and has no general manager or coach. The Washington area also has a professional football team in the National Football League, the Redskins, as well as some collegiate teams such as the Maryland Terrapins, the George Washington Generals, the American University Eagles and the Howard University Bisons. Sports of all Robbie Tietz shines The Lethbridge Amateur Swim Club fared well at the provincial age-group swimm- ing championships held in Calgary over the weekend.

Marilyn Van Dyke, who swam in the girls' 11 and 12 group, also shone for the locals as she picked up a bronze medal in the 200-metre freestyle class. Other locals who fared well were Lori Lavkulik and Gordon Syme. Lavkulik earned two fifth place ribbons while Syme carted home a fourth in the 100-metre backstroke. sorts BRADLEY SIGNS NEW YORK (CP) Gordon Bradley signed for his fourth season as coach with New York Cosmos, the North American Soccer League team announced Monday.
