That event ends with the free skating Saturday. And there'will be new pairs champions because Sandra and Val Bezic of Toronto, the defending title holders, have been forced to withdraw due to a leg injury to Sandra. A close second to the Souches in the junior pairs were Karen Newton and Glenn Laframboise of Toronto who scored high despite a fall suffered by Karen. Third were Janet and Mark Hominuke of Calgary. The Souches' victory was one of those things that con- found spectators who do not understand figure skating scoring. They actually wound up with a higher ordinal count than Newton and Lafram- boise, and normally the lower the number of ordinals the higher the placing. But in this case they won because a ma- jortiy four of the seven judges ranked them No. 1. The junior pairs medal was the only one awarded Thurs- day but tight races developed in a number of other com- petitions. Camille Rebus, a 15 year old high school student from Edmonton, skated strongly in the compulsory free skating and jumped from fifth to first place after completion of two of the three segments of the junior women's competition. By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer In some ways, it was a typical game for the Lethbridge Y's Men Native Sons. But there was one noticeable difference. The Native Sons continued their dominance of the Central Alberta Junior Hockey League Thursday night at Henderson Ice Centre with a 7-2 triumph over the Taber Palace Pats; "It was very much like most of our games in the league this said a pleased coach Howie Yanosik after the contest ended. "The kids didn't have to work too hard to win, but they just seem to know when to turn it on and pull away." In that way, the game was typical. Two goals within a minute and a half early in the third period .blew a 4-2 game wide open, and the Palace Pats never recovered. The difference Thursday night was the dominance of one line on the scoresheet. The keynote for the team all season has been their ex- ceptional balance, but against Taber, the trio of Mark Scheibner, Albert Dumont, and Terry Roberts accounted for all but two of the Sons' goals, Scheibner picked up a hat trick, and added an assist, while Dumont and Roberts scored one goal each, and were both credited with three helpers. Dwayne Howell and Ron Simmons scored the'other Lethbridge goals while Jerry Orban and John Wilson replied for Taber. The locals started out slowly, and had trouble getting out of their own end against the persistent Taber forechecking. However, a pretty three-way passing play set up Scheibner right in the slot and the Native Sons drew first blood .at the mark of the opening period. Taber came back to tie it 1-1 on a goal by Orban at the mark, but just 35 seconds later, Gino Guzzi laid the puck on Ron Simmons' stick from behind the net, and the locals again took the lead. Dumont's hard work in a scramble in front of the net set up a goal by Roberts with just 17 seconds showing on the clock and the Sons took a 3-1 lead into the dressing room after the first 20 minutes.

Attendance Pontiac Cup in Kimberley Kimberley will be the site this weekend for the Pontiac Cup ski races. The hill has undergone ex- tensive grooming this week to smooth out the moguls created by the last few weeks of little snow. However, the base is in ex- cellent condition for both the races and recreational skiing. The temperature is six degrees, and there 'is only a slight wind. During February, lifts at Kimberley will run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., as well as from five to 10 in the evenings. Scheibner got his second goal of the night at the mark of the second period after Roberts centred the puck from the left corner. The puck hit a stick and bounced up to hit Scheibner in the chest. However, the slick centreman just waited until it rolled down, and banged it past a surprised Taber goalie as soon as it hit (he ice. Taber got back into the game on a goal by John Wilson late in the second period, but the Native Sons put it out of reach with the two quick ones early in the final frame. First Howell, from Joe Meli and Greg Kveder, beat Taber goaltender Greg Daphin, and then Scheibner block- ed a slapshot at his own blueline, and sped down the left wing to bank his third goal in off the post. Dumont wrapped up the scoring at the mark when he sneaked out from behind the net, and lifted a backhand over Daphin's shoulder. Scheibner picked up the game's first star award while Durnont earned the second star. Daphin, who was called upon to stop 37 Lethbridge shots, was the third star. Native Sons' goaltender Gary Warner was tested only 23 times, but many of them were tough ones, and he had little chance on the two goals. The locals took seven of the thirteen minor penalties handed out in the contest by referee Leo Harrold. Yanosik was pleased with his team's performance, and had special words of praise for the play of Scheibner and Dumont, along with goaltender Warner. "It was a good he added. "But what we're really looking forward to is the Canada Winter Games." The Native Sons, of course, earned the right to repre- sent Alberta in the Games by taking a six team provin- cial tournament at the Sportsplex in December. In preparation for the Winter Games, the Native Sons have scheduled an exhibition game with The Pass Red Devils of the Alberta Junior Hockey League next Tuesday in Pincher Creek. Before that, however, the Sons have a league contest with Redcliff Cubs this Saturday at Henderson Ice Centre beginning at p.m. They will be looking for their 24th Central Alberta Junior Hockey League win against only two losses in that one. ICE CHIPS Although the Scheibner line accounted for most of the scoring, the other units were certainly dangerous Ken Klinkhammer almost picked up a strange goal for the Sons when he lofted a shot from centre which fooled the Taber goalie the netrninder ducked, and the puck landed on top of the net in the mesh Yanosik has shaken up his lines somewhat from earlier in the season, and he says he may leave them as they now stand for the Winter Games his "I think they can get stale playing with the same guys all the time. A little change of scenery is good for them." ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Key encounter this evening as Regina Pats are in town Coach Earl Ingarfield, needless to say, was looking for at least a split of two games this past week on the road. He didn't count on dropping a pair of Western Canada Hockey League games Tuesday and Wednesday. Broncos, of whom Ingarfield is the men- tor, met the division leading Saskatoon Blades Tuesday night and dropped a tough 5-4 decision. But the loss that hurt the most was the setback in Flin Flon f. Wednesday night. Broncos had the Bombers' number in their first five meetings of the season but they were denied a season sweep as the Bombers, led by mighty-mite Rich Gosselin, scored four power play goals enroute to a decisive 7-3 victory. Tonight the Broncos go after some breathing room in the eastern division when they meet third place Regina Pats at the Sportsplex at eight o'clock. Tonight's game is another of those four pointers. Broncos currently lead the Pats, the defending Memorial Cup champions, by a single point. The locals do have four games in hand which help, but Ingarfield wants to defeat the Pats to offset the two losses earlier this week. Edmonton Oil Kings, trailing in fifth place in the Western Division, upset the visiting Saskatoon Blades, the Eastern Division leaders, 4-2 Thursday in Western Canada Hockey League action. In the only other game Thursday, New Westminster Bruins downed Winnipeg Clubs 8-3. Mike Will led the Oil Kings with two lals and Wayne Perkins scored the winner on an Edmonton power play at of the third period. Gary Rissling scored the other goal. Fred Williams and Glen Leggott replied for the Blades. Gpaltenders Doug Soetaert of Edmonton made 30 saves and Bill Oleschuk of Saska- toon stopped 33 Oil King shots. At New Westminster, the Bruins were ahead 3-0 after the first period and 6-0 after two before the Clubs rallied with three consecutive third-period goals. But the Bruins scored twice in the final period to stop the visitors. Fred Berry led the Bruins with three goals and Steve Clippingdale, Mike Sleep, Barry Beck, Richard Shinske and Harold Phiilipoff adding one each. Pat Meagher, Gord'Blumenschein and Larry Skinner replied for Winnipeg, which was outshot 40-22. In the Eastern Division, Saskatoon remains 16 points ahead of second-place Lethbridge Broncos. New Westminster is within two points of third-place Kamloops Chiefs in the Western Division. Edmonton is 10 points behind the Bruins in fifth spot.
