Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD January 24, 1975 Book your European Charter Now FllfMt It ItriM-AmliriM-Fnikfirt for your trivt! imngtmcntt contact Art Williams Travel Centra Mill Phono 328-3201 -The Herald- Sports Pat Sullivan Davis likes chances Lyle Davis superstitious? That's hard to say. If Davis and his mates are they may be looking for their lucky star this time around. Davis, you see, is the skip of the Lethbridge foursome who this afternoon embarked on a trip they hope will land them a berth in the Alberta men's curling playdowns in Edmonton in February. Davis, and 15 other skips have the same thought in mind. However, unlike years gone by, the south can now send two representatives, doubling the chances of all entries. "It will give a team a second chance so to said Davis Thursday. Ik- Davis doesn't want to have to count on a second chance. In what was described as one of the finest zone playdowns in years, Davis and his quartet emerged with the spoils after getting past Dan. Brown in two must games. "The competition was certainly as keen as I have ever seen it in admitted Davis. Davis is flanked by three of the finest shotmakers in the city in Scott Henderson, Jim McQuarrie and Steve Gillies. In past years it has often been a Davis-Henderson final in southern bonspiels. Why the change? According to Davis it all came about as a result of the Corby Cup competition. Corby Cup play is strictly for Elks. "We joined forces for the Elks playdowns and it worked out pretty good, so we decided to stay together for the Consol says Davis. Thus far, the combination has again worked pretty good. Davis and McQuarrie have always curled together it seems. Davis calling the shots and McQuarrie, from his second position, sweeping ever so perfectly. On the other hand, Henderson is also a skip and his track record has been an enviable one. As for Gillies, there are not many better leads around. "It's strange how we complement each says Davis as he describes the working of the two curling quarterbacks on same rink. "It's great the way we can work out the shots between us." Davis is not laying claim to be a favorite in this year's southern playdowns. He does, however, like his chances more because of the fact he is playing on friendly turf, or in this case ice. "It will make a big difference playing at the Lethbridge Curling he says. "Our ice plays different from that in Calgary or Red Deer." Davis has been to two previous southern playdowns. He lost once to Ron Northcott of Calgary and then to Roy Talbot of Red Deer. This, he hopes, will be lucky number three. Northcott won't be here. So who does Davis feel will be the toughest entry, or if you like, the favorite? He feels both Mike Chernoff and George Fink of Calgary will be tough. For that matter so will Talbot and another Southern Albertan by the name of Terry Lyon of Pincher Creek. It has been a while since a Lethbridge rink has seen the Alberta finals. Davis and his mates would like to make 1975 the year they make the trip north. BILL PERSLEY, COACH OF THE LCC BADMINTON TEAM, DEMONSTRATES A SERVE Have won two team championships in two attempts LCC badminton club tough McQuarrie out DRUMHELLER, (Special) Sharon Grigg of Medicine Hat came from B event to capture the Southern Alberta women's curling championship here Thursday. Grigg emerged the B event winner Wednesday night and won the first game in the A-B final 6-4 over Myrna McQuarrie of Lethbridge Thursday morning to force an extra game that afternoon. She won the afternoon match 9-1 after six ends of play. Meanwhile, Phyl Crist of Calgary captured the Southern Alberta senior women's curling playoffs Thursday with an 8-7 extra end victory over defending Alberta champion Dorothy Shields pf Medicine Hat. Crist, with teammates Rita Inglis, Eve McCullough, and Marjorie Jones, went through the 12 team event undefeated while Shields earlier lost to Doris Falconer of Fort Macleod. The Calgary rink, after trailing 3-1 after three ends, came back with four in the fifth and two more on the sixth. Shields then counted two on the seventh and a single on the eighth. Crist then blanked the ninth and lost her chance to win at regulation time when her final shot in the tenth end rolled out. By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The badminton club at the Lethbridge Community College is quickly establishing itself as one of the best clubs in the province. They have competed at two tournaments thus far in the college year and have won the team championship at both events. "We have won five of a possible 10 titles besides the team LCC badminton coach Bill Persley stated. "Last week we set a conference record when we won four of five cham- pionships. The only one we missed was the men's doubles." The next opportunity the LCC badminton club will have to strut their stuff will be Saturday. They will be hosting their own tournament and'action will get under way at a.m. in the LCC gym. "Our club consists of 10 members, five boys and five girls. Those selected to the team receive a full tuition scholarship as well-as the outfits they wear during competition. Racquets are also made available if a student prefers not to use his own. "The 10 members enable us to cover all the events, mens and womens singles, doubles and mixed doubles, plus have an alternate member of each the LCC coach stated. Men's team members include Hartley Leppard, in the singles; Jim Vickers and Rick Furukawa in doubles; Brian Popwich in mixed doubles and an alternate yet to be named. The women's team includes singles player Sharon Davies, doubles team Vivian Giese and Robyn Mintenko; Pam David- son, mixed doubles; and alternate Shari Hohm. The men's team includes two second year business students, Hartley and Jim, while Rick and Brian are enrolled in second year recreation. Shari is in first year recreation, Sharon second year physical education, Vivian second year renewable resources, Robyn second year recreation and Pam is taking community youth. Every Tuesday and Thursday, between 4 and the bad- minton club can be found working out. "We do some conditioning work as well as some work on improving Bill said. "If I've spotted one of the members doing something wrong during a tournament or in practice, we work on it together and try to correct it." Many of the team members have been playing badminton all through school and need little in the way of coaching. Tips to improve their technique are more appropriate than actual coaching sessions. Like badminton clubs the world over, the LCC club is hav- ing problems getting plastic birds. shortage has forced them into using the feather type bird, even during prac- tice sessions. The LCC tournament Saturday will be a round robin affair to determine the team championship. "We will then pick the top singles players and top pairs from each entry and playoff for the doubles and singles cham- Bill said. At present the LCC club is gearing itself towards the provincial championships on Feb. 14 and 15. After that they hope to be part of the ACAC 4 West championships at Saskatoon. If you want to get a sneak preview of the type of high calibre badminton competition that will be presented at the Canada Winter Games, then drop out to the LCC Saturday and familiarize yourself with the sport.

(AP) New England Whalers of the World Hockey Association sent left wing Nick Fotiu to their farm club, Cape Codders A ttendance is up9 teams on a par OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) Or- ganizers of this year's Cana- dian midget hockey tourna- ment see an improvement in two areas over last year's and more evenly-matched teams. Attendance during the first three days of the tournament has increased by over last year. A total of fans have attended the games at Civic Auditorium, compared with for the first three days of 1974. Last year, Verdun Maple Leafs were clearly the tourna- ment powerhouse, winning the tournament and outclassing the other teams in their division. But other teams namely Yorkton, Sask., Oshawa, and Edmonton Canadians give the young Quebecers a tough time of a repeat cham- pionship. In Division 1, unbeaten Osh- awa holds a one-point edge over Yorkton, having ac- cumulated eight points in four games.Yorkton has played five games and holds a one- point lead over Barrie, Ont. Co-op. Oshawa is a surprise thus far in the tournament, enter- ing only as the host team, while other teams won provin- cial championships to qualify. In Division 2, Verdun has six points in three games and has allowed only three goals in that stretch. Edmonton has six points in four games, as. does Fort Rouge, Man. The first-place teams in each division will play for the championship, while second- place finishers in each divi- sion will be relegated to the consolation final. Teams in Division 1 play six games leading up to the cham- pionship, while teams in Divi- sion one less five. In games Thurs'day, Thunder Bay, Ont., Miners shut out Quesnel, B.C., Macks 3-0, Barrie defeated Yorkton 4-2, Verdun topped Fort Garry-Fort Rouge Twins 4-1, Thunder Bay and Yorkton played to a 2-2 tie, Edmonton shut out Dalhousie, Legionaires 7-0, and Sydney, N.S.

Dave Broshko and Brian Propp supplied first-period goals for Yorkton. Jimmy Mann led Verdun with two goals. Single goals went to Alain McElligott and Yves Couturier. Defenceman Pat Colpitts scored for the Twins. Centre Joel Elliott scored twice to pace Edmonton to its shutout win over winless Dal- housie as goaltender Bart Hunter recorded his first shut- out of the tournament. LithMilHOfficiR.TiMril.til. Lww Ltml 7Ml Si fluffing Mall FILING CABINETS Renner pulling away in AJHL RED DEER (CP) Don Renner of Tab'er Golden Suns is setting a blistering pace in the Alberta Junior Hockey League scoring race, but he'll have to do even better if he hopes to break the scoring records set two years ago by Ryan Wecker of Drumheller Falcons.

He is 15 points ahead of Tony Currie of Spruce Grove Mets, who has left the league to play with Edmonton Oil Kings of the Skiing looks good The skiing outlook for this weekend is good.
