McQuarrie, who won the "A" crown two years ago in Taber only to drop two'games to Polly Beaton of Medicine Hat .in the finals, upended Arthena Fleming of Calgary 5-3 to advance to the A-B final set for this morning at 10. If a second game is necessary it will be played at two this afternoon. In the "A" final Wednesday, McQuarrie built up a 5-2 lead after nine ends and held on for the triumph. Curling with McQuarrie are Rita Tarnava, Barb Davis and Barb Allsop. Only the Sharon Gregg rink of Medicine Hat stands in the way of a trip north for the Lethbridge rink. Gregg earned another crack at McQuarrie by downing Pat Hawkins of Calgary 8-5 in the "B" final Wednesday night. Gregg, to advance, must beat McQuarrie twice today. McQuarrie and Gregg met in the semi-final of section "A" with McQuarrie winning 10-8. Gregg earlier Wednesday, had knocked off defending southern champion Polly Beaton of Medicine Hat 9-3 after- nine ends while in the other "B" semi-final Hawkins got past Flem- ing 8-2 after eight. Meanwhile defending provincial champion Dorothy Shields of Medicine Hat won the B event of the Southern Alberta senior women's curling championship Wednesday by whipping Kay Thubron of Calgary 13-1. Shields will meet Phyl Crist of Calgary, the A event winner, in the final today. Shields advanced to the B final earlier Wednesday by edg- ing Kay Redding of Lethbridge 11-10 in an extra end. The Medicine Hat rink trailed 8-2 after four ends, but bounced back with five in the fifth. The game was tied in the tenth when Shields drew to the four foot with her last rock, and went on to steal the winning point in the extra end. Thubron trounced Rose Tallman of Taber 15-2 in the other B event semi-final. Pettifer leading scorer With 218 points in 10 games, Pettifer leads Saskatchewan's Roger Ganes by almost two full points.

By The CANADIAN PRESS Pittsburgh Penguins, in- sisting they will not move to Seattle, took advantage of a California team that lost its coach and beat the Seals 7-5 in the only National Hockey League action Wednesday night. Before Wednesday's game in Pittsburgh, the Seals an- nounced in Oakland that coach Marshall Johnston had been fired and that Bill McCreary, the league-owned club's direc- tor of hockey operations, will coach the Seals for the remainder of the season. Potter, chief owner of the Penguins, attempted to put a damper on a league proposal to move his club to Seattle. "The Penguins will not leave said Potter. "Any rumors that such a move is being contemplated are untrue." He was commenting on a proposal announced at league meetings in Montreal on Tues- day that Seattle and Denver, in line for expansion franchises in 1976-77, might instead take over the financially-troubled Califor- nia and Pittsburgh clubs. SEEKING INVESTORS Potter admitted the Penguins owe the league about in back assessments and advances and that the club is trying to attract new investors. The Penguins, laboring with high player salaries and low attendance, have received a "million-dollar commitment" from Pittsburgh interests to help the club, said Potter. The Seals, under McCreary's coaching, never managed to take the lead in Wednesday's game although they pressed the Penguins throughout. Jean Pronovost scored twice for the Penguins, who outshot the Seals 48-26 before a crowd of Chuck Arnason, Vic Had- field, Barry Wilkins, Bob Kel- ly and Ron Schock also scored for Pittsburgh. AI MacAdam scored twice for the Seals while Stan Weir, Dave Hrechkosy and Bob Stewart added single goals. The win was Pittsburgh's 18th this season against 17 losses and 10 ties, the first time the club has been better, than .500 this season. The Seals, meanwhile, dropped their seventh straight loss, which left them with an 11-29-9 record. EXPECTED FIRING Rumors had circulated that Johnston would lose his job arid the 33-year-old former Seals' defenceman said he was not surprised when he was fired. "They told me Tuesday night that we had lost our last six games, or something like that, and they felt there was more talent on the team than I The "Right" kind of lines to meet all your needs!

"I went into the job knowing the security of pro coaches is not the best, but I've been do- ing the best I could, and I haven't anything to hang my head for." Following Tuesday's all- star break, the league moves back into full swing tonight with eight games scheduled. Atlanta visits New York Rangers while New York Islanders are at Chicago, Philadelphia at St. Louis, Montreal at Minnesota, Van- couver at Washington, Detroit at Buffalo, Toronto at Los An- geles and Kansas City at Bos- ton. The Maple Leafs head west to start a three-game road trip, leaving defenceman Bor- je Salming behind in Toronto. Salming, Leafs' top defen- ceman who twice has been sidelined by injuries this season, now is to undergo tests for a spot on his lung which developed after he blocked a shot in Saturday's game in Montreal. Meanwhile Don Borgeson, after kicking around the minor leagues for eight years appears to be skating himself to a full time job with the World Hockey Association's Phoenix Roadrunners. Borgeson, a five-foot-11 left winger from North Battleford, Sask., scored three goals Wednesday night to carry the Roadrunners to Raymond topples LCI Rams Raymond Comets (Out- distanced the LCI Rams in 4A high school basketball play Tuesday night.

Gary Sinclair was top man for the Rams with nine while Mike Steed and Rod Hudson added eight apiece. The LCI Colts gave the Lethbridge school a split in the two games as they defeated the Raymond Mustangs 42-38, after leading 21-20 at half time, John Craig -and Blade Roberts scored nine each for the winners while Bob Hicken hooped 13 for the Mustangs. In Far West Conference play Matthew Halton Hawks dropped the Coalhurst Celtics 45-23 in boys action. Doug Main scored 14 and Dave Wizell scored 10 for the Hornets, who led 14-11 at half time. Alec Masnyl added 11 for the Celtics. Matthew Halton Hornets stopped the Coalhurst Celettes 33-24 in a girls game. The Hornets led 20-8 at the half and received 10 points from Sharon Sorge. Gloria Ruttan was top gal for the Celettes with 14. Wednesday night the Matthew Halton Hawks dropped a close 37-31 decision to the St. Michael's Dragons, also of Pincher Creek, in Farwest boys play. Ted Bonertz was the leading scorer for the Dragons, who led 19-12 at the half, while Michael Sproule topped the Hawks with 14 points. In girls action the Matthew Halton Hornets upended St. Michael's Dragonettes 49-26 behind the 12 point perfor- mance of Sharon Sorge.

Reg Masuda and Jack Taylor potted lone markers for AGT. Ron Scott and Peter Kish were the Knights of Columbus goal getters. an 8-5 victory over Chicago Cougars. Borgeson's first goal of the game and 14th of the season pulled Phoenix into a 4-4 tie midway in the second period after Chicago had gone ahead. Then, after John Gray's goal midway in the third period gave the Roadrunners a 6-5 lead, Borgeson scored two more to clinch the vic- tory. In other games Wednesday, Indianapolis Racers beat Winnipeg Jets 3-1 and Van- couver Blazers upset Minnesota Fighting Saints 2-1. Borgeson, 29, is a rookie in the WHA after eight years in the American, Central, Eastern, and Western Inter- national leagues. PITTSBURGH 7 CALIFORNIA 5 Pint pwlod: 1.
