The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Horns suffer 11-3 loss CALGARY (CP) Four Calgary Canucks scored two goals apiece to pace their team to an 11-3 triumph over Lethbridge Longhorns in the Alberta Junior Hockey League Thursday night. The two-goal performances were by Brock Kaluznick, Jerry Bancks, Dave Scott and Dean Magee. Singles were added by defencemen Derral Moriyama, Terry McFaul and Alan Glendinning. Lethbridge had goals by Darrel Zaparniuk, Dave Hongen and Ron Krikke. Canucks, who took seven of 10 minor penalties and outshot the Longhorns 44-39, led 34 and 8-1 by periods. Longhorns' Dennis Hatt was taken to hospital with a possible broken leg after a third-period skirmish. Meanwhile Barry Lassiter's third goal of the game at of overtime gave Red Deer Rustlers an 8-7 win over Edmonton Mets Thursday night. The score was tied 3-3 at the end of the first period and 5-5 after the second. Kelly Bunn, Brian Stephenson, Terry Wittchen, Doug Gillespie and Kirby Balfour also scored for Red Deer. Bunn and Stephenson added three assists apiece. Tony Currie scored twice for Edmonton while Ted Fellows, Dave Morrow, Ron Bignell, Wayne Babych and Rick Zaperniuk added singles. Red Deer outshot Edmonton 37-30. Mets were assessed 10 of 19 minor penalties, two of four majors and Red Deer had the only misconduct. Kite in top spot SAN DIEGO (AP) "We're, good Ben Crenshaw said with a nod toward Tom Kite. "But we know what com- petition is. We're gonna try to beat each other's brains in." Crenshaw and Kite, both residents of Austin, Tex., former teammates at the University of Texas and golfing rivals for a decade, matched sparkling, seven- under-par 65s Thursday and tied for the top spot in the first round of the San Diego Open golf tournament. They shared a one-stroke lead over Homero Blancas, Cesar Sanudo and rookie Richard Mast, who took advantage of the bright, warm sunshine to forge 66s, just one stroke back. Crenshaw, Kite, Blancas and Mast all played the north course at the Torrey Pines Golf Club, the shorter and easier of the two courses being used for the first round of this event. Sanudo played the south course Friday, January M, W4-TM1 LITMiWOOI Cheevers held on, just long enough By NEIL CAMPBELL CftMdiu Press Staff Writer Cleveland goaltender Gerry Cheevers held Toronto Toros at bay for 20 minutes Thursday night. That was more than long enough for the Crusaders, who were well on their way to a 5-3 Magrath tourney started One of few bright spots The Lethbridge Longhorns only scored three times Thursday night as they were belted 11-3 by Calgary Canucks in Calgary. Herald photographer Rick Ervin caught this goal, off the stick of Lethbridge defenceman Dave Hougen. Longhorns not only lost the Alberta Junior Hockey League game but defenceman Dennis Hatt with a possible broken ankle after a collision and a small skirmish. Orr tripped with score 2-1 Hawks, no penalty Bruin fans throw 40-minute fit By THE CANADIAN PRESS Hockey fans at Boston Gar- den don't take a supposed in- justice to their beloved Bruins lightly. When Bobby Orr took a tumble Thursday night and referee Wally Harris failed to call "a tripping penalty, they threw a tantrum that delayed the finish of a National Hockey League game by 40 minutes. When the final 50 seconds could be played, Chicago Black Hawks preserved a 2-1 win over the Bruins. Orr was the first to blow his top. When he was handed a misconduct and the Bruins a bench penalty, the paying customers blew their tops, showering the ice with debris. The garbage shower turned into a downpour and James C. Moore, assistant business agent of the Building Services Union, pulled a cleanup crew off the ice until a threat of arrests restored order. ALMOST HIT "It was too hazardous for them out there when the fans were throwing Moore explained. "A couple of them nearly got hit with debris." A Bruin spokesman said the league took no immediate dis- ciplinary action, but that NHL president Clarence Campbell would issue a statement today. Reporters were barred from the Bruin dressing room for 10 minutes after the game while coach Bep Guidolin met with Harry Sinden, managing director, and Weston Adams Jr., president of the club. "Harris said he called an of- fside on the said Orr. "He said you can't call a pen- alty after a whistle. That's wrong." Other Bruins were unhappy with Harris too. "He wasn't only calling bad ones on said NHL scoring leader Phil Esposito.' "He called a bad game. I may get fined for saying it, but what are you going to Derek Sanderson was handed a misconduct and game misconduct earlier in the game after he skated up to Harris and applauded a Chicago penalty in the referee's face.

Beaton, with third Doreen Desharnais, second Janet Bengert and lead Terry Kope, forced the deciding game with an earlier 9-5 victory over Grigg, the A section winner of the 16-zone double-knock out -playoff. Beaton won the B sec- tion earlier Thursday by steal- ing the winner in the 10th end, an 8-7 decision over Shirley Fox of Calgary. The champions broke a 5-5 tie in the deciding match by stealing three in the eighth end when Grigg missed an open take-out with her last shot. Grigg countered with two in the ninth but Beaton made a perfect chip shot to eliminate Grigg's only counter in the final end. The Beaton rink, provincial champions two years ago, ad- vances to the Alberta finals Feb. 5-7 at Fort Macleod. Other rinks competing will be the champions of Northern Alberta, the Peace River dis- trict and the Northwest Territories In Medicine Hat the Dorothy Shields rink of Medicine Hat captured the Southern Alberta senior women's curling cham- pionship here Thursday after twice defeating the Dorothy Miller rink of Calgary Shields downed Miller 8-7 to enter the final match, where the Miller rink went down to a 13-7 sudden death defeat. Shields entered the final as B- round victor while Miller had entered as A-round winner The Shields rink obtained the B title by defeating Irene Lindsay of Lethbridge 8-3 Wednesday, with Miller beating Tina Hubbs of Medicine Hat 12-1 Tuesday for the A event title. Shields, with Donna MacLean, Molly Keith and Verona King, now advances to the provincial championship which begins Feb. 5 at Fort Macleod, Alta. Gotta selected By JOHN SHORT EDMONTON (CP) Jack Gotta of Ottawa Rough Riders, coach of the year in the Canadian Football League for the second successive season, did it the hard way. He rallied his club from four consecutive losses at the start of the Eastern Football Conference season and wound up with a Grey Cup victory and Thursday became the second man to win the Annis Stukus Award twice and the first to win it twice in a row. At a news conference Thursday morning to mark the 1973 award, Gotta said no man in a team sport can accept an individual award without sharing the honor. "Ottawa was a good football organization before I got said Gotta. 42, a tall, slim end during his playing days. He moved to Ottawa as an assistant coach in 196ft and became head coach in 1970 just in time to miss the Eastern Conference playoffs "That was the year we lost Bo Scott, Vic Washington and Margene Adkins to the National Football League. And a pretty good quar- terback named Russ Jackson packed it up, too "I guess the people just wanted me to pick up the telephone and call for another strong said Gotta "It just doesn't work like that." ffUIRSMAI SPORTS iff WESTERN CANADA'S LEADING SUPPLIER OF QUALITY FIREARMS, TAR6ET EQUIPMENT, RELOADING.

"I guess it would boil down to said Gotta, who succeeded Frank Clair, now general manager, as head coach in Ottawa and now is on the second year of a three- year contract. Levy takes over two positions By AL MCNEIL MONTREAL (CP) Sam Berger, owner of Montreal Alouettes, confirmed Thursday that head coach Marv Levy will assume the role of general manager as well as his coaching duties with the Canadian Football League club for the 1974 season. Berger told a news confer- ence that the Alouettes also have obtained permission from Toronto Argonauts' owner John Bassett to negotiate for the services of quarterback Joe Theismann for the coming season. Theismann played out his option with the Argos last year and was reported seeking a salary in excess of J75.000 for 1974 In assuming the general manager's role as well as that of head coach, Levy replaces J I Albrecht, fired by Berger last December goals by Pit Martin and Darcy Rota stand up for the win. Greg Sheppard scored for Boston. A 4-1 win by Montreal Cana- diens over Buffalo Sabres may not have made the Bruins any happier. It cut their East Division lead over the Canadiens to four points.

Over-all, Cheevers blocked 40 shots while Giiles Gration, the young Toronto goalie, made only 20 saves. "Cheevers was the said Toronto coach Billy Harris. "He played a terrific game." "Any time you get behind two or three goals, you're in said Harris "But I've seen our team play worse and win. We missed too many chances the rolls were against us."
