Going gets rough Brent Fairbanks (15) of the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks gets his hands on the ball in a scramble for a rebound Friday night. He also got a good chunk of elbow from a member of the Camrose Lutheran College. The wounds healed quickly as the Kodiaks chalked up a 103-76 triumph. Heard takes Citrus lead ORLANDO. Fla.

Heard, who stamped himself as one of the game's top young players two years ago. had a 135 total, nine under par for his two trips over the 6.929-yard Rio Pinar Country Club course. Arnold Palmer, the crowd favorite, could hit only seven of 14 fairways, bogeyed two of the last five holes for a 73 and fell six strokes behind at 141. "1 drove just terrible." said Palmer, only one shot out of the lead when the second round began. Heard. 26. spiced his round with an eagle three on the 15th hole and held a one-stroke ad- vantage over Jim Colbert, in second place with a second consecutive 68 for 136. Leonard Thompson, a winner last Sunday in the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic, and Lanny Wadkins followed at 137. Thompson, who moved to within one stroke of the lead at one point bogeyed the last hole for a 69. while Wadkins charged into contention with a 67 Richard Crawford, who shared the first-round lead, slipped to a 71 and was in a group at 138 that included Charles Coody. Bob Murphy and Terry Small. Defending champion Buddy Allin had a 70-141. Lee Trevino slipped to a 73 and. at 144. just made the cot for the last two rounds Julius Boras, tine 53-year-old veteran who finished third a week ago, failed to make it at Heard became one of the most promising young players on the tour in 1972 when he won this tournament. Well, Brooks and his charges did just that. They lost but one game, to Mount1 Royal by three points, in conference play. They have not lost in league action since Friday night, in convincing fashion, the Kodiaks rolled past Camrose Lutheran College Vikings 103-76 to earn the right to meet Mount Royal- College of Calgary in the final of the ACAC championship tonight at nine o'clock. Cougars, who finished the year with an identical 13-1 record along with the Kodiaks, gained a berth in the final by tripping Red Deer College Kings 72-56 in the opener Friday. Tonight's final should be best game of the year It all the makings of being that. The Kodiaks, one good turn deserved another, kept Mount Royal" from having a perfect season. But it was the manner in which the Kodiaks defeated Mount Royal that has set the stage for tonight's showdown As was pointed out earlier, Kodiaks lost to Mount Royal by three points early in the year. In order to host the ACAC finals Kodiaks needed a victory by more than three points. The locals won by more than three, 69 more than three as they trampled the Cougars 132-61 in a devastating display of power But the Kodiaks best not get a feeling of false security Jack Kenyon, coach of the Cougars, has put together too good a ball club for that to happen again It was the bad game every club needs to get out of their system Meanwhile', in last night's action five Kodiaks hit for double figures as Gary Williams led the way with 19 points. Al Pard, shaking off a bothersome leg injury, and Greg Hess followed with 17 points apiece white Hansen and Glen Schuler chipped in with 12 apiece. For Camrose it was a one- man show as Greg Relkng turned in a brilliant 32-point performance Gary Olsen chipped in with another 12 Kodiaks, who hit on only 40 per cent of their shots from the field and 50 from the foul line, led 48-32 at the half and pulled away in the third quar- ter Brent Fairbanks of the Kodiaks and Olsen took early showers due to foul trouble in the game that saw Camrose hit on just 33 per cent of their field goal tries From the foul line they enjoyed success 57 per cent of the time. Mount Royal was 50-50, from the field and from the foul line but it was enough to carry them past Red Deer as Darrell Haupton and Paul Hayes hooped 14 points each the Cougars. Doug Baker, the Cougar spark plug all season, managed an even dozen Bill Bond canned 18 points in a losing Red Deer cause. Teammates Lionel Leiske and Gord Graves added 13 and 12 points to the cause. Red Deer and Camrose will meet in the consolation final tonight at seven. The winner of the Kodiak Cougar encounter will represent the ACAC in the Four-West championships Pennant title for Bulldogs The Winston Churchill Bulldogs captured the 1973-74 Southwest Conference Boys' Basketball League pennant title by scoring a narrow 66-61 victory over the Stirling Lakers Friday night The two clubs were deadlocked in first place going into their final league games of the season with identical 12- 1 records The victory gave the Bulldogs an impressive 13-1 record for the season while the Lakers were close behind at 12-2 Kendall Duce and Perry Mirkovich led the Bulldogs to the pennant title with 14 points apiece while Marty Hirsche hooped 25 big points and Scott Perrett 17 for the Lakers Meanwhile the Coaldale Gaels scored a slim 47-46 win over the Picture Butte Sugar Kings in another league match last night Ewald Granson paced the Gaels' team effort with 10 points while Terry Hanna whipped in 22 points and Leonard Neiboer 11 for the Kings The Fort Macleod Flyers tripped up the Taber Trotters 61-57 behind Elaine Barr's 20- point performance.
