Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 25, 1975 THE UETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Seals upend Leafs, Oilers drop Aeros By The CANADIAN PRESS Coach Red Kelly and his To- ronto Maple Leafs aren't out of the woods yet. The Leafs, recovered from the worst of their injury prob- lems, appeared to be a National Hockey League team on the rise after they upset Montreal Canadiens Saturday night. But their grip on a playoff berth again began to look tenuous after they lost their third game in a row Friday night, 6-1 to California Golden Seals. The Seals, making their first home appearance under new coach Bill McCreary, Kodiaks lose two oh road POCATELLO, Idaho (Special) Lethbridge Com- munity College Kodiaks dropped a close. 108-93 deci- sion to Idaho State Friday night in an exhibition basket- ball game. The Kodiaks, who trailed 51- 36 at the half, received 23 points from Glen Schuler and 17 more from Wayne Ander- son. Dave Preus chipped in with 12. Kodiak coach Ben Brooks was very disappointed with the refereeing Friday night. "They really socked it to the Kodiak coach stated. "Idaho State took 52 foul shots to only 29 for us. I've never seen the likes of it before." He conceded that his team did commit a number of fouls, but only about 65% of the ones called were justified he added. The Kodiaks outscored the host Pocatello club by two points from the floor but the 36 foul shots they made overwhelmed the Kodiaks. Greg Hess had four fouls on him in the first 10 minutes and when Brooks put him back in the line up in the second half he lasted two minutes before he was fouled off. John Jasiukiewicz, Preus, Anderson and Schuler also fouled out and Curtis Travis, Kendon Eakett, Wendell Cahoon and Bruce Hamilton all had four fouls.. The Kodiaks and the Idaho State squad meet again tonight, with, coach Brooks hopes, a new set of referees. Thursday the Kodiaks came out on the short end of an 86-73 score to-'Treasure Valley Community'College in a game played in Ontario, Oregon. The Kodiaks led 46-43 at the half, but could not keep pace with the Oregon club in the final 20 minutes. Greg Hess was outstanding in a losing cause, as he hooped 18 points and snatched 14 rebounds. Glen Schuler and Kendon Eackett added 14 points each for the locals, who travel to Pocatello, Idaho, for a game with Idaho State University junior varsity tonight. Dave Preus was the leading rebounder for the Kodiaks with 16 while John Jasiukiewicz had 10 assists in directing the Lethbridge offence. GREG HESS moved to within eight points of the third-place Leafs in'the Adams Division. A Toronto win would have given the Leafs a 12-point lead in the fight for the division's final playoff berth. In Friday's only other NHL game, Vancouver Canucks topped Atlanta Flames 4-1. Toronto's goaltending, fre- quently criticized when the Leafs were losing earlier this season, was weak again in the first two games of their three- game West Coast tour. Doug F'avell gave up eight goals to the Kings Thursday night in Los Angeles and was pulled in favor of Dune Wilson after the Seals took a 4-1 lead midway in Friday's second period. Rookie Frank Spring, ac- quired from St! Louis Blues 'earlier this season, scored his first two NHL goals for the Seals. The Leafs complete their western swing Sunday with a game in Vancouver. The Canucks continued their recovery from a slump that threatened their lead in the Smythe Division. The win, their second in a row, gave them a five-point edge over second-place Chicago Black Hawks. It was the second win in 10 games for the Canucks. The loss was the third at home for the Flames. Don Lever scored a pair of goals for the Canucks, including what turned out to be the winner on a second- period power play. Goaltender Ken Brown won Jacques Plante's approval Friday night. The Thunder Bay, Ont, na- tive stopped 47 shots to help Edmonton Oilers win 7-5 over Houston Aeros in a World Hockey Association game. "Nobody could play better than said Plante after Brown had stopped 35 of 36 shots in the first two periods. Plante, 46, dean of WHA goalies, said hard work was the key to the success of Brown, who shares goaltending chores with Plante and Chris Worthy. The Edmonton defence col- lapsed in the third period and he needed several good saves to enable the Oilers to move within two points of second- place Toronto Toros in the Ca- nadian Division. Edmonton's Blair MacDonald, who scored three goals against Winnipeg Jets Thursday night, added two more against the Aeros. In other games, Vancouver Blazers edged Winnipeg 4-3, Minnesota Fighting Saints topped Toronto 7-5 and Phoenix Roadrunners stopped New England Whalers 4-1. Giveaways by the Jets in their own end enabled. Van- couver to first overcome a two-goal Winnipeg lead in the third period and then score the winner in overtime. Butch Deadmarsh scored the winner for the Blazers. CALIFORNIA 6 TORONTO 1 First Period: 1. California, Huston 11 (Neilson) 2. California, Patey 14 {Weir, Neilson) 3. Toronto, Hammarstrom 11 4.

"We were ready to go further." It was one, two and you're out for Davis and his Lethbridge rink as the Southern Alberta men's curling playdowms got under way Friday. Meanwhile, a pair of Calgary foursomes, skipped by George Fink and Mike Chernoff, joined Red Deer's Roy Talbot and Ed Lukowich of Medicine Hat as the only unbeaten quartets in the 16 rink showdown for two berths in the Alberta final later in Edmonton. Fink started Davis' trip to an early shower with a 9-6 win in the opening draw Friday.afternoon. Davis, who scored in five of the 12 ends, conceeded that while he was scoring one point an end Fink came up with two. "Look at said a disappointed Davis. "He scored two in the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th before putting it away with a single in the 9th. Chernoff was on thin ice in his opening game with Gil Schmaltz of Calgary. Schmaltz was two-down playing the 12th and final end. He watched as Chernoff attempted a hit and stay with his last rock that didn't turn out all that well for the veteran Calgary skip. Chernoff wasn't that happy with his play in the 12th end allowing Schmaltz to tie the game at eight each. He made up for. it in the 13th as he cradled up to a Schmaltz counter for the 9-8 win. Lukowich, who is fast becoming the favorite of Lethbridge curling tans, had little trouble in his two matches Friday. The Medicine Hat skip simply blew Mel Jordan of Vulcan out of the rink 12-2 in his first'game and then came right back while the wind was still good and blasted Gordon Jones of High River 13-2 in the evening. Lukowich enjoyed his Friday matches. He came up with three in the third and fifth ends against Jordan to put the game away and then came right back against Jones counting three in the fourth and four in the seventh before the High River skip gave it up. Winning uncommon to Talbot and he showed his talents Friday with a pair of hard earned wins. In his opening game Talbot got past Allan Zinger of Corona- tion 9-5 after Zinger had given up four big points in the ninth end to break open a closely fought battle. Talbot used his last rock to good advantage in the nightcap against Terry Lyon of Pincher Creek. The two rinks were deadlocked at 7-7 after 10 ends before they blanked the llth. Talbot scored twice in the 12th for a 9-7 win and a berth in the semi-final of "A" section. In other first round games Wylie got past a very stubborn Ken Blaney of Vauxhall 7-5 while Lyon edged Jaye Bowlen 10-9 with a beautiful last rock draw shot that all but covered the white button at the centre of the circle. Jones, in turn, dumped Bob Trautman 8-3 and Warwick romped past Jirn Birtles of Olds 15-3. Blaney ended Davis' chances of one of the two berths up for grabs in the Southern Alberta playdown. Davis, looking to make amends for his first round loss, gave up three enders to Blaney in the ninth and llth and saw an 11-7 score marked on the board. "We felt, we had a good chance this time said Scott Henderson, Davis' third. "But we just couldn't make the shots we wanted." Zinger stayed alive in the "B" section with an easy 10-4 win over Bowlen while Jordan sidelined Trautman 8-3 and Schmaltz got past Birtles 9-8.. Play continues this afternoon and evening while the finals of the three-day event are set for Sunday afternoon. KAMLOOPS, B.C.

Henderson, playing in his second WCHL game, turned aside 22 shots in posting Chiefs's third shutout of the season, the Second over Calgary.

Fred Berry had given the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period and Brian Shmyr and Clayton Pachal potted second period goals to give the Bruins a 3-1 lead. Kevin Negel and Rob Tudor collected power play goal for the Pats and Les Gauer scored the other Regina goal. New Westminster took five of the six minors. The Pats outshot the Bruins 43-33. The game between Victoria Cougars and Brandon Wheat Kings was postponed because of a snowstorm in Manitoba. Draft payments are expected shortly jockey TORONTO (CP) Draft payments from hockey's two major leagues are expected to be in the hands of the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) shortly, Clarence (Tubby) Schmalz, commissioner of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series, said Friday. Schmalz told leaders of Can- ada 's three major junior leagues that a cheque for full payment of draft money owed by the National Hockey League is in the mail to the CAHA. World Hockey Associ- ation held a meeting prior to its all-star game in Edmonton this week, and its money is ex- pected to be forthcoming Schmalz said. Major junior operators across the country have been unhappy with the lateness and payments from the two major leagues. Last week Ed Chynoweth of the Western Canada Hockey League said league governors had voted unanimously to. withdraw from the CAHA, cit- ing a lack of leadership in pressing the professionals for the money outstanding. Chynoweth said there was a strong possibility the WCHL, OHA Major Junior and Quebec Major Junior leagues would band together under a separate identity, "maybe un- der the CAHA umbrella." Under a one-year agree- ment signed by the NHL, WHA and CAHA, draft money is paid to the CAHA head of- fice and distributed to the various teams. Minor hockey In Midget action the Eskimos dropped the Toros 4- 1. Mike Craig, Bill Henderson, Tom Dejeger and Berkley Potts scored for the winners while Theo DeGroot scored the lone Toro marker. The NHL and WHA are delinquent in the payment of more than for drafted players. Leader's of the three top jun- ior leagues met for five hours Friday to prepare a draft of proposals they will present to today's meeting of the CAHA board of directors. The proposals, which Schmalz said had the support of the WCHL, were presented to the CAHA executive Friday night.. Schmalz refused to speculate on what direction the Ontario and Quebec leagues will take if the CAHA rejects their proposals. convicted MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) Panamanian jockey Sandino Hernandez was convicted Fri- day of possession of a buzzer a battery powered shock device intended to goad a horse to greater speed. As a result of the convic- tion, the New York State Rac- ing and Wagering Board said, the 36 year old jockey will be barred for life from riding at any United States track. Hernandez was suspended following his arrest last Sept. 30 at Belmorit Park moments before the fourth race. SPORT FANS BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW The last time a for- ward or defenceman put on goalie equipment to play goal during a regular National Hockey League game was Feb. '28, 1941 when .Andy Brannigan did despite not being a goalie, Brannigan played seven minutes and 13 seconds in goal without being scored on. Here's a football oddity Although the national Football League startid in 1920, did you know that nobody thought of having playoffs or champ- ionship games at the end of any season for 12 years, or until 1932? That seems hard to be- lieve in these days qf playoffs and Super Bowls, but for the first 12 years of the NFL, when the regular season ended, that was it. Here's'a football oddity from this season In its first five games this year, Army scored exact- ly 14 points in each game their quarterback for each of those five games was Scott Qillogiy, whose uniform number is, oddily enough, 14! Then in the sixth game, Gillogly didn't play and Army did not score 14 points! I bet you didn't know that for valye and perfor- mance you can't beat our 17.95 snow plow retreads.
