Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta f orurday, Marth 3, WJ THC LCTHSRIOGE HWALD Referees tohistle happy Friday mgftt Kodiaks one win away from title By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "They took the game away from the players." This was the reaction ot both coach Tom Karren of the Leth- bridge Community College Kod- iaks and Ken Gaboon of Red Deer College Kings. The Kodiaks and Kings met in the second game of the four- team Alberta College Athletic Conference Basketball League final Friday night before a packed house at the LCC. Kodi- aks won the game M-67 and will meet Mount Royal College Cougars of Calgary in the pri- mary final tonight at the'LCC Mount Royal advanced to the final with a convincing 96-74 win over Gamrose Lutheran College Vikings in the first game Fri- day night. The Kodiak-King tussle was frustrating to both players, and coaches as well as to a number of fans. Referees Barney Deirucell and Ron Hunt, both of Calgary, gave their whistles quite a workout. "I've seen a lot of basket- added Karren. "But I've never heard so many whistles. They took the game away from the players." One player in particular who felt the brunt of the blows, or toots if you will, was centre Dwight White. One of Ure spark- plugs on the Kodiaks' offence, White was whistled down for four fouls in the first half Fri- day, three on the call, player control. Player control can only be described as an offensive foul if explanations Friday night were correct. In calling player control, once a defensive player Is set in position it is the offen- sive player who must adjust. There is no battling for position. If the Kodiaks or Kings were unfamiliar with the call before Friday night referees Dcmicell and Hunt made sure they had a firm knowledge of the call after the game was over. In the game itself Gary Wil- ams, who had three fouls tie first half, hooped 16 points o pace the locals to their berth in the final. Bruce Millis and Curt Wol- sey, each with three first half infractions, added 15 and 14 wints respectively. While, be- ore leaving the game with 12 minutes left, had 14 while Bob lonlsion. the first Kodiak foul- ed out of the game, chipped in ,ilh 11 as did John Jasukie- ricz.

White was called for fouling Stan McKenzie (52) of the Red Deer College Kings.

BRATISLAVA, Czech- oslovakia (CP) Toller Crans- ton of ToroUio attempts today to become the second Canadian to win a medal as the world fig- ure skating championships come to a close. Cranston was still within reach of at least a third-place bronze in the men's singles event which entered the free- skating section today in which Cranston is considered capable of gaining ground on defending, champion Andrej Nepela of Czechoslovakia. Cranston moved up to fifth after winning the compulsory short free-skate program Fri- day. He had been in sixth spot after Thursday's compulsory figures won by Nepala. "I'm satisfied with my the 23-year-old Toronto artist said after Friday's com- petition. "What I do on the ice is extremely difficult and it puts a lot of pressure on me. but I felt I did well." Today's men's final wraps up the championships which have seen Karen Magiussen of North Vancouver take the women's title while Ludmila Pakhomova and Alexander Gorshkov of the Soviet Union skated to their hird dance title Friday. Soviets Tina Hodnina and Alexander Zaitscv earlier won the pairs title. HARD TO CATCH Nepela was second in Fri- day's compulsory short pro- gram, which counts for 20 per cent of the over-all champion- ship. The compulsory figures and today's free skating each are worth per cent. Still in second place overall was Sergei Chetverhukin of the Soviet Union. Except for the first two, over-all placings were unofficial because the ordinals the judge's placings for skaters; were unavailable. Unofficially, Jan Hoffman ol East Germany was third and John Curry of Great Britain fourth. Gord McKcllen of the United States dropped lo sixth beliind Cranston. Ron Shaver of Cambridge, Ont., took sixth place in Fri- day's skate which would have moved him up from his Kth spot after Thursday's figures. Robert Reubens of Toronto was Sth Friday, the same placing as he liad Thursday. Cranston was the obvious fa- 'orile of the crowd which ap- ilauded loudly after his two- minute performance. Doug's, Cardstoii earn -wins Doug's of Lethbridge and Cardston picked itp victories recently in Commercial Men's Basketball League playoff ac- non. Doug's scored a slim 77-76 win over Raymond while Card- ston whipped the Bloods 79-62. In the Doug's Raymond en- counter, the local men's squad Held a tight 41-40 margin after the first half, but trailed 61-51 midway through the second. Bryce Tliompson, who scored 12 points in Doug's second half comeback, led his teammates with 28 points while Alec Dudas added 14 and Dennis Hydy- chuk 10. Don MacLain notched 20 points for Raymond while Don Atwood and Myron Eves chipp- ed in with 16 apiece. Meanwhile in the other play- off match, Cardston look a 38- 33 lead at the half and went on to post an easy victory over the Bloods. Tim ToUestrup was outstand- ing for Cardston with a 33- point outing while Blaine Bun- nage aided with 14. Charles Weasel Head netted 20 points and Wayne Davics 18 in a losing cause. FINAL STANDINGS Cardslon Alain Calmat, (he French world champion in 1965 who is lere as chief substitute judge, said Cranston was impressive in every move. "He is a very skater o those I competed against in my day. Artistically, he was su- perb and totally original. "No one can do what Crans- on can do on the ice. His com- bined technique and artistic ap- proach is wonderful. He is Hie me man who has at last com- bined sport and art in skating." In the dance event, Pakho- mova and Gorshkov edged out the West German brotlier and sister couple, Angelika and Er- ich Buck. The Savicls received first-place votes from all nine judges and scored 524.20 points 'ollowing a freeskating final in which they were awarded six perfect scores of six.
