Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, June 7, 1974 DID YOU KNOW? That it costs no more to make all your travel arrangements through a travel agent. ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 Pat Sullivan Earl Ingarfieid is back, if Tuesday night was any indication, where his talents can be best put to use. Ingarfieid is back coaching junior hockey. I'm not saying that Earl wasn't an excellent scout and director of player personel and coach for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League. Far from it. It is just that Tuesday night there was a sparkle in his eye when he talked about coaching Bill Burton's Lethbridge Broncos. I've known Ingarfieid for the best part of 12 years, and only once has he done anything that made me question him at first. We were playing fastball for Doug Frier's Larks. I got lucky and hit a home run. It was a proud moment, but as I rounded first base I heard Earl, from the dugout say, "look at the rookie strut. When he comes back to the dugout don't say anything." I was crushed. My first dircuit clout and nothing. It didn't last long. Ingarfieid soon broke the silence, laughed and congratulated me. But that's just another story. It was a joke at first, and then I found Ingarfieid to be sincere in his congratulations. He was sincere Tuesday night. This position as coach and assistant general manager means a great deal to him and his family. When Ingarfieid tells you how wonderful it feels to be the first coach of a Tier I team in Lethbridge, he means it. Ingarfieid has been in most of the major hockey rinks in North America. He played with three teams in the National League including the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and California Golden Seals. I can't recall a summer where he didn't come home, to Lethbridge. "Let's face it. it's my he says, "I, I should say we, live here. I'm a family man and getting the opportunity to coach the Broncos means a great deal to all of us." Ingarfieid. Burton and the other two shareholders, Gary Kirk and Dennis Kjeldgaard. will get their baptism of fire this fall in the Western Canada Hockey League. The biggest task, it appears from here, will not be getting an excellent hockey team together, but selling the club to Lethbridge and Southern Alberta. Broncos last year were third in the east division and then forced Regina six games in the final series before bowing out. The club has an excellent nucleus of players returning to the fold and Ingarfieid looks to the new season with great optimism. Burton exhoes Ingarfield's feelings. "We will give Lethbridge and Southern Alberta fans an exciting and great brand of junior hockey." And when Burton tells you something, you tend to listen. He won't come right out and say so, but one gets the feeling he is not taking all that big a gamble. He has faith in his product. And how can you question a man who goes out and gets salesmen like Ingarfieid, Kirk and Kjeldgaard? No. I might, and you might, hesitate to stamp success on the Broncos. Not this very moment. We have had some pretty good Tier II hockey over the years, but not the likes of the Western Canada League. It will take time to adjust I'm certain. I. for one, am looking forward to the Broncos this fall. Not just because we have the 5.000 seat Sportsplex it enters into it alright, but it has more to do with it than that. When you think that this winter we will be watching young men who will be in the NHL or World Association a year from now, it's rather exciting. Here we are, just one step, in some cases, away from the majors. We are growing, are we not? When a man like Bill Burton pulls up stakes and leaves a place like Swift Current, his home for the past 25 years, you know something is up. Burton, I'm sure, likes to gamble. When the odds are in his favor, he can be tempted. But Burton isn't treating this like a gamble. He appears to like the odds. I can't argue with him. I like his chances. Schlee fires hot 66 PHILADELPHIA (AP) John Schlee wasn't surprised that he shot a six-under-par 66 to take the lead after one round of the Philadelphia golf tournament. It was in the stars. Schlee. 35. a student of as- trology, hasn't been playing well this year on the pro golf tour. He is 66th on the money- winning list at and his best has been a tie for llth at San Diego. "I had a bad astrological as- pect between Neptune and my rising sign. Aquarius. Neptune is a very slow-moving planet. It kind of boggles the mind. It makes it very hard to concen- trate." Schlee said. So what's different now at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club? The bad astrological as- pects are gone now. Schlee said. "It left two weeks ago. June has always been a good month for me. I'm a Gemini." While Schlee claimed eight birdies and two bogeys over the 6.700-yard, par-72 course. Tom Jenkins and Charley autord had five-under-par 67s to trail by one stroke. Another stroke back at 68 were Jim Colbert. Bob Allard, Victor Regalado. Wally Arm- strong and Tom Kite.

Phone The Sports RICK ERVIN photo Korth delivers Lethbridge Junior Miners got strong pitching and solid hitting to down Vauxhall Jets 11-4. Late surge sparks Miners, Korth, Hatt combine in win By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A few line-up changes tightened, up the defense, Dennis Hatt and Jim McLellan provided the offense, and the Lethbridge Junior Miners got back on the winning track Thursday night. Down 4-2 after five and one- half innings of play, the Miners rallied for three runs in each of their last three innings to down the Vauxhall Jets 11-4 in a Southern Alberta Junior Baseball League game at Henderson Park. Jim McLellan belted his second triple of the night to drive in two runs and touch off a three-run sixth inning which put the locals ahead for good. Dennis Hatt smacked a triple and double to drive in five additional Miner runs in the last two frames. Les Sjogren had a double and single for two more RBI's. Allan Korth was outstanding on the mound for Doug Frier's crew, going the distance and registering six strike-outs en route to his first victory of the season. Gals are busy at Henderson The gals at Henderson Lake Golf Club have been busy recently. A total of 32 mothers and daughters participated in the annual Mother Daughter tourney. Elsie McGrath and her daughter Andrea topped the field in the nine hole competition with a combined score of 59. Low net winners were Thelma Coutts and her daughter for the day. Darlene Terry. Meanwhile. Calgary shoUnaker Pat Heisler bested a breezy Lake Layout with a 95 to win the senior women's annual tournament Heisler won out over a field of 40. and in doing so captured the Shipley Trophy. Runner up to the champ was Rene Ward while third was Vickey Davies. Ward fired an 98 while Davies settled for 99. Other flight winners included Katie Wilson over Irene Marcinko in the first; Gladys Tunbridge over Gladys Redfern in the second: Ena Rossiter in the third as she bested Bea Pack while in the fourth flight top honors went to Peggy McKay as she won out over Toots Hockslein. The junior gals club championship is coming up June 21. For those interested in taking part in the junior league please drop off your name at the pro shop, no handicaps are required. Further information on the junior program can be obtained by contacting Joan Lavlon a1 327-3667. For the Jets. Dale Tillman had a double and a single while Hugji Locke added three safeties. Starting pitcher Wayne Stickle gave up the first five Miner runs and was tagged with the loss. Coach Doug Frier made a few line-up changes prior to the start of the contest in an effort to shore up a Miner infield which committed 13 errors in two games Sunday, and the switches seemed to work. The infield committed only one of three Miner errors Thursday night. "I had to do something." said Frier. "So I moved Dennis Hatt from third to short so he could utilize his fielding range going both ways instead of just one." Frier also moved Greg Hamilton in from centre field to catch, and Greg's strong arm caught two runners attempting to steal. "I'm pleased with how things looked tonight, and I guess we'll stick with this set- up on Sunday." said Frier after the last Jet was retired. The Miners will be out to better their 2-3 league record when they host the Calgary- Golden Spikes for a doubleheader Sunday at Henderson Park. They hope to be sporting their new uniforms when the first pitch is thrown in the p.m. opener. The nightcap will go at p.m. FLY BALLS Dennis Hatt was very steady at shortstop, handling seven chances with only one error the chilly- evening wind was not enough to keep 75 hardy fans away from the park some tough breaks put two losses on Allan KoruYs record previously, but there was no denying him against the Jets.

Lakers lose 5-1 CALGARY (CP) Lethbridge Lakers suffered their second straight Alberta Major Baseball League setback Thursday evening when they dropped a 5-1 verdict to the Calgary Jimmies. Tuesday night the Lakers let errors cost them as they were beaten 7-4 by Calgary Giants. Lakers are in Edmonton this weekend for a pair of games. Saturday they meet the Edmonton Blockers while Sunday they tangle with the Tigers. Les Ohrn was the loser for the Lakers in the game Thursday night. Jimmies got to Ohrn for a three run home run and a solo shot. Lakers, on the other hand, had their chances. In both the eighth and ninth innings the Lakers loaded the bases but were unable to score. Meanwhile, two early home runs paced the Tigers to an 11- 2 triumph over the Blockers. Randy Rasmussen smashed a two-run shot in the first inning and Murray Sleeves followed with a three-run belt in the second. Winnipeg pitcher Dave Dumbeck and reliever Dennis Lopez combined for a four- hitter as the Tigers produced 12 hits against three Blocker hurlers. In Red Deer pitchers Al McKee and Roger Pozzo walked in four second-inning runs Thursday night but Red Deer Generals rebounded to tie Barrhead Cardinals 4-4 in another league game shortened to eight innings because of darkness. Starter McKee walked home three runs with five walks in a row following a leadoff double to Dwayne Joliffe. Pozzo walked in the final Barrhead run after taking over. Run-scoring singles by Wayne McKee and Gary Pierson were instrumental in the Generals' rally. Don Clark clouted a home run in the fifth inning off starter Terry Hendley. who pitched 7 2-3 innings and left when his elbow started acting up.
