Violini, Arnold sharp Sunday By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Reg Arnold wasn't satisfied with being second best, so he simply went out and tried harder. It seems to have paid off, at least heading into next weekend. Arnold and Dianne Violini, perhaps the most consistent bowler in the city, led the way Sunday afternoon as Lethbridge's five-pin team for the southern zone roll-off was decided. Arnold averaged almost 275 in winning the men's division while Violini rattled the pins for a 270 average. Arnold captured first place in a field of 58 men while Violini showed her heels to 21 other women. For Arnold it was simply a case of trying just a little harder this time around. Last weekend Arnold was in second place three pins back of the then leader John Rempel. "I had a chance to be the leader but punched a head pin in the final frame of my last game and John took advantage of the said Arnold last week. He didn't give anyone any chances this week. Arnold rattled the pins for a solid Sunday at Capri Bowl to finish the 16-game competition with an aggregate score of 135 pins better than runner-up Norm Tolley. Rempel fell well off the pace Sunday and was in fourth place when the final tallies were posted. In chalking up the victory Arnold hit for games of 273, 240, 214, 324, 259, 366, 249 and 342. Tolley, who rolled a last week, came up with a this week on games of 264, 258, 270, 283, 285, 233, 33.3, and 229. Third place went to newcomer Tom Baker with a total. Baker rolled last week and came back with a this week. He rolled games of 272, and 203. For Rempel games of 254, 242, 286, 323, 205 and 238 were not good enough for him to maintain his head.

Monday, January 27, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Native Sons take B.C. tournament REG ARNOLD From all indications, the best in Alberta compares pretty favorably with British Columbia competition. The Lethbridge Native Sons scheduled a tournament in Fernie Saturday in an effort to better prepare themselves for the upcoming Canada Winter Games, and they came home with the championship after taking two straight games. The Native Sons edged the host club in the Fernie Junior B Invitational Hockey tourna- ment by a 7 4 score Saturday- morning, and then swamped a highly touted Rossland club 7 2 in the final. Rossland is presently tied for the lead in their league with Trail, who narrowly lost out to the B.C. Reps in a quest to represent the province in the Canada Winter Games. Seven different players scored for the Native Sons in the final as the locals opened up a 5 0 lead in the second period after playing to a scoreless draw in the opening 20 minutes. Mark Scheibner, Joe Meli, Ron Simmons, Albert Dumont, Reg Osmond, Terry Roberts and Gino Guzzi had the goals while Ken Bertoia and Rob Sherstobitoff replied for Rossland. The two clubs split six minor penalties. Against Fernie, Dwayne Howell and Albert Dumont each scored twice. Singles came off the sticks of Reg Osmond, Joe Meli, and Ken Klinkhammer. Robby Thrun had a pair of markers for Fernie Sabres while Robby Poupart and Robby Fitzgerald added the others. Lethbridge took nine of the 19 penalties handed out, including the game's only mis- conduct. The Native Sons will be back in league action Thurs- day when they host Taber Palace Pats and again Satur- day when they are at home to Redcliff Cubs. Barrie triumphs OSHAWA, Ont. (CP) Doug Kean knew if he could make a big save early the op- position would be in for a tough assignment. He did, they did, and Barrie Co-ops hung on Sunday for a 7- 4 win over the defending champion Verdun Leafs in the title game for the Canadian midget hockey championship. It also qualified the Co-ops for a five-game series of ex- hibitions in -the Soviet Union sometime in March. "I was just hoping to make a big save at the beginning. I figured the team would get the lift they needed if I played well said the 16-year- old goaltender.
