Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD.- Saturday, March 1, 1975 Meet Mount Royal in ACAC final tonight at COLIN SHAW photo KODIAK GUY POMAHAC LEAPS HIGH IN THE AIR TO BLOCK A SHOT Oilers improve position THE CANADIAN PRESS If the World Hockey Associ- ation playoffs started next week, based on today's stand- ings, they would have three Canadian teams, including Edmonton Oilers who improv- ed their position with a 6-2 win over Baltimore Blades Friday night. The Oilers, if they maintain their present position, would qualify for the playoffs as one of the so-called wild-card teams. They were helped in their cause Friday by Win- nipeg Jets who defeated San Otego Mariners 4-3 in the only other WHA game scheduled. Quebec Nordiques, New England Whalers and Houston Aeros, the three division lead- ers, would win playoff berths based on today's standings. So would Toronto Toros, Cleveland Crusaders and Phoenix Roadrunners, who all are second-place teams. Of the remaining eight teams, the two with the most points would win the wild-card berths and that's where Ed- monton and Minnesota Fightings Saints would qualify. Minnesota, third in the Western Division with 64 points, and Edmonton, third in the Canadian section with Ei, are the top two at the moment. Rookie Mike Rogers and former National Hockey League veteran Bruce MacGregor each scored two goals to lead Edmonton against Baltimore.

Preus leads Kodiaks to victory By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Dave Preus played his best game of the season Friday night to lead the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks to an 80-64 victory over SA1T Trojans in the opening round of the ACAC basketball cham- pionships at the LCC. Kodiaks needed the stan- dout performance by Preus in order to jet by the stubborn Trojans who led the LCC 36-35 at half time. It wasn't until the last 13 minutes of play that the Kodiaks looked like a first place team and the Trojans a fourth spot club. Preus was a dominant force on the boards, hauling in defensive and offensive rebounds left and right, block- ing shots and ramming in 24 points. In the other game played Friday in the opening round of the single knockout tourna- ment Mount Royal College Cougars got by NAIT Ookpiks 65-55. Greg Hess was also a tower of strength in the Kodiak vic- tory as was Wayne Anderson and Kendon Eakett. Hess, besides pulling in numerous rebounds and breaking up plays, provided the spark that started the Kodiaks rolling with less than 13 minutes to play in the contest, with the LCC club up 45-44. Anderson came on strong in the final half, blocking numerous shots, rebounding extremely well and adding 14 points to the Kodiak total. Eakett chipped in with 11 for the Kodiaks and played a solid game, setting up plays and hustling the en- tire game. The Trojans were out- running and out-scoring the Kodiaks in the opening stanza and as a result came out of the half with the lead. "We 'weren't hitting with our shots and we weren't con- trolling the boards the way we should Preus said about the first half. "In the se- cond half we started to hit with more consistency and took the boards away from them. If you have the boards you have the game." At the start of the second half Kodiak coach Ben Brooks went to his bench, starting Bruce Hamilton, Robert Wells, Dave Peterson, Wendell Cahoon, Guy Pomahac and Wayne Ander- son. The move paid off. When the first stringers returned to the floor four minutes later the Kodiaks started to roll. "At half time coach Brooks told us, first, to slow down our play and then told us to loosen up, that we were too tight, which we Hess stated. "When we saw what our bench could do. we felt looser when we hit the floor in the se- cond half and we were able to play the game we are capable of Our goal for the season has always been to go to the Cana- dian championships and we came out of that dressing room determined not to lose to a fourth place team in the first round of the playoffs." Coach Bench Brooks' mood changed as the game progressed. From the ex- uberant "go get 'em" at- titude at the start he became thoughtful and worried by the half. As the second half wore on and his Kodiaks began to take control his exuberance returned and at the conclusion he was a very happy, relieved man. A bright spot for the Kodiaks in the opening stanza was the backboard play of Curtis Travis. Travis was really getting up and pulling in some rebounds that had no right being his. He was also passing well and setting up plays. SKI the WEST WESTCASTLE A mountain, i bMUtiful Mtllng, and aolltuda are youri. Ski March 5 to WadnMday thru Sunday.

Bauck controlled NAIT's Rick Gawlik, the league's top scorer, holding him to only 17 points, well down from his near-30 point average per game. The blonde haired Cougar was blocking shot after shot as well as pulling in more than his share of rebounds, "Once you block a few shots on a guy you gain a psy- chological edge on Bauck said in explaining his control ol Gawlik, particular- ly, in the second half. Joey McLaughlin was the top Cougar point getter with 22. Dave Fulks had 12 and Bauck and Brian Church add- ed 11 each. REBOUNDS Referee Doug McKay saying he was having trouble returning back lo the standard basketball rules after refereeing under international rules for the Winter Games... there was a real lack of scoring in the NAIT-Cougar game it was only 2-2 at the five minute mark and 30-27 at the half. Greg Hess kidding Kendon Eakett who was having a cut on his chin patched up during the game by saying "you're supposed to play basketball, you don't have lo box him" Coach Brooks said he tried hard during the half to instill in his charges that they must play fundamental basketball "fundamentals beat all he said there were over 500 fans present for the two games Kodiaks were playing their type of ball during the last seven minutes of play at tonight NAIT and SAIT will battle it out for third spot... the final game for the ACAC cham- pionship will start at pitting Mount Royal Cougars against LCC Kodiaks both games will be held in the LCC gym the winner advances to the 4-west championships.. Greg Hess, explaining his seemingly inspired play dur- ing an eight minute period in the second half by saying "I have a habit of playing in streaks, which I shouldn't have I guess" Wayne Anderson was as pleased as his coach with his play Cahoon had five points in the game and Pomahac four.
