DAVE PREUS (13) GOING UP FOR TWO POINTS (INSERT) COACH BEN BROOKS IN THE SHOWER Native Sons win twice It's hard enough to start off a season when you are the reigning national champions from the year before. But when you win a national championship, and then have to go back and finish off your league season, that's really tough. The Lethbridge Y's Men Native Sons took the first two games of their South Zone semi final in the Central Alberta Junior B Hockey League playoffs over the weekend, but they are ob- viously not the same club that won the Canada Winter Games gold medal. After running away with the CAJHL regular season title, the Sons could manage only a 8-6 triumph over Brooks Lakeside Spurs in the series opener at Henderson Ice Centre Saturday night. Sunday afternoon in Brooks, it took a four goal outburst in the third period to break a 5 5 tie and send the Sons on their way to a 9 6 win and a 2 0 lead in the best of seven series. "We're not playing anywhere near the way we did in the says coach Howie Yanosik. "I just hope the kids come down off their cloud pretty soon." "When you have to score seven goals to win a -game, there's something he adds. "The goaltending and defence were pretty sloppy." "We're just lucky we're still putting the puck in the net." In Saturday's home ice vic- tory, Greg Kveder was the hero for the Native Sons, scor- ing a pair of goals and earning the game's first star for his efforts. Mark Scheibner also notch- ed a pair of goals, while Reg Little League Baseball Assoc. ANNUAL MEETING Thursday, March p.m. Anyone interested in administration, coaching, managing, umpiring In our 50 team program is urged to attend. Osmond, Dennis Halt, Albert Durnont, and Randy Lowe scored singles for the Sons, who built up period leads of 4 2 and 6 3. Ron Schault, Gordon Fowler, Reid Johnson, Dan Corbiel, John Prins, and Terry Krest had the Brooks goals. The Native Sons outshot the Spurs 45 30 and took two of just six minor penalties hand-' ed out. On Sunday, Brooks came back from a 4 3 deficit after one period to tie the game 5 -5 heading into the final frame. Then, it appeared that the Spurs had taken the lead at the mark of the third period when Chester Labelle flashed the red light.' However, the Native Sons protested that Labelle was us- ing an illegal stick, the goal was disallowed and the husky Brooks player received a two minute penalty. Just five seconds after he returned lo the ice, the Sons' scored the go ahead goal, and the locals banged in three more quick ones before Brooks came back to wrap up the scoring at the mark. Albert Dumont had two goals Sunday to pace the Native Sons, who outshot the Spurs by an amazing 52 28 count. Other markers came off the sticks of Randy Lowe, Dennis Halt, Dwayne Howell, Terry Roberts, Greg Kveder, and Glen and Mark Scheibner. Rob Weisl and Brad Stiles led Brooks with a pair of goals each while Jack Beagle and Terry Krest added singles. -The Herald- Sports LETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD.

TYPEWRITERS Preus named tournament's most valuable player Kodiaks capture championship By CARRY ALLISON Hrrald Sports Writer Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks captured their fourth straight Alberta College Athletic Conference basketball championship Saturday night, but not without .a great deal of dif- ficulty. The Kodiaks bested Mount Royal College Cougars 68 59 in the'championship game at, the LCC, but it was a hard earned win that saw the LCC club watch a once comfor- table 21 point lead dwindle to only four points with left to play. For the second game in a row the Kodiaks looked to Dave Preus for the leadership they needed in order to win. The big six foot five inch centre led the scoring with is points, but his real benefit to the club was under the boards where he hauled in 17 rebounds. So outstanding was the play of Preus during the two day, single knockout tournament that he was the popular choice as the tourney's most valuable player. In the consolation game prior to the Kodiak Cougar tussol SAIT Trojans upset NAIT Ookpiks 73 52. SAIT, who led 37 26 at the half, received 24 points from Kim Woolfe and 16 from Ed Dick while Rick Gawlick hooped 18 in a losing cause for NAIT. "The Kodiaks had too much rebounding strength for Jack Kenyon, coach of the Cougars stated. "I thought we might pull it out after our comeback. Our press was bothering them, but we started to move a little too late." The Cougar comeback started with 15 minutes remaining in the second half. After leading 40 27 at the half, the Kodiaks continued to add to their lead and soon led by 21 points, 51 30. It was then the Cougars started to move. With only left in the game they had pulled within four points using a fast break to rack up points and a full court press to prevent the Kodiaks from scoring. At one point they held the LCC club off the scoresheet for four minutes straight. "We were haying a problem staying spread out during the Kodiak coach Ben Brooks stated. "If you spread out in the back court its harder to cover the ball handler and its easier for him to spot the open man down court." "I was pleased with the win, the LCC coach said, "and I was pleased with the way we played the last four minutes, but I was not happy with the game during the middle 12 minutes of the final half." During the last four minutes the Kodiaks were running their passing game well, waiting until they were able to move in and get the good in- side shot. Besides Preus' heroics the play of Kendon Eakett, Greg Hess, Curtis Travis, Glenn Schuler and Wayne Anderson was also beneficial to the Kodiak cause. Eakett was the second highest scorer for the winners with 12 points and was also responsible for coralling six rebounds. Curtis Travis and Glenn Schuler also picked off six rebounds apiece with Schuler accounting for 11 points and Travis 10. Big Wayne Anderson added eight points to the Kodiak score and hauled in the second highest number of rebounds, seven. The Cougars had Greg Hess covered like a blanket covers a bed throughout the contest and while he was able to score only seven points he was instrumental in setting up plays and playing a tough defensive game. The tournament all Star team included both Hess and Eakett off the Kodiaks and Rick Gawlick of NAIT, Kim Woolfe off SAIT and the Cougar's Stew Bauck. While the final game was closer than the capacity and partisan house of 600, would have wished it, it was a great championship game, with its outcome in doubt right up to the final minute. With their victory Saturday the Kodiaks advanced to the 4 West championship which is slated for Saskatoon March 7 8. they are the present 4 West defending champions. "We will be working on the breaking of the zone and polishing our attack in general for the 4 coach Brooks stated. "We are the defending champions so we will be going there with a positive attitude." REBOUNDS the Kodiaks scored 40 points in the first half of their game but only 28 in the second another problem was their low 50% average from the foul line the NAIT-SAIT game was a lack lustre affair arousing little interest from the fans the selection of Gawlick to the All Star squad was questionable some goo'd players like Joe McLaughlin of the Cougars, Wayne Anderson of the Kodiaks, or Doug Carter of NAIT could have been chosen ahead of him Joe Shemanski was the top scorer for the Cougars with 16 points in the final game Stew Bauck had 12 for the Mount Royal club Kodiak coach Ben Brooks took an early shower, clothes and all, after the game he was joined by three other unsuspecting bystanders as well the win, plus the All Star award, -made Dave Preus the hap- piest guy in the place. LES ROWLAND AUDREY ROWLAND- DAN SCHMALTZ BETTY SCHMALTZ Les Rowland mixed champ TABER (Staff) Les Rowland never gave up hope of cap- turing the Alberta mixed curling crown despite his opening round 6-2 loss to Lawrence Lennon of Lethbridge. Rowland said Saturday, after Lennon and heavily favored Ron Anton of St. Albert were both upset, that he still had a good chance. But Sunday morning at the Taber Curling Club the focus of attention was on Lennon and Anton. No one was giving Rowland much of a chance despite his 3-1 record. They should have paid more attention it would seem now. Rowland won the Seagram's trophy as the mixed champion of Alberta after surviving the five rounds of play that got under way Friday in Taber. Rowland finished with a 4-1 mark while Lennon, Anton and Jim Fox of Fairview were each 3-2. Rowland, with rinkmates Audrey Rowland, Dan and Betty took just eight ends to dispose of Doug Johnson of St. Albert 11-5 and then he sat back and watched as Fox trimmed Lennon 8-5 and in storybook fashion Mylar Savill rallied to edge Anton 7-5. Anton appeared headed for a showdown with Rowland un- til the 10th end when Savill, with the hammer, counted three for the win. In Saturday's action Rowland went an extra end to edge Savill 7-6 while Fox nipped Johnson 8-7 in another extra end game Anton knocked off Lennon 6-2 as he broke open a closely fought encounter with two in the seventh and three in the ninth. Saturday night Rowland was one down coming home but picked up three to oust Anton 8-6. Lennon got back on the winn- ing track with an 8-2 victory that took just nine ends. Fox down- ed Savill 7-2 in an eight end game to round out Saturday's ac- tion. Rowland and his mates, will now represent Alberta in the Canadian mixed curling championships in Prince Edward Island. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Mazinke rallied, Reed upset 10-9 FREJDERICTON (CP) Harvey Mazinke carries a fifth man with his Regina rink in its bid to regain the Cana- dian men's curling cham- pionship he won in 1973. The 37-year-old farm equip- ment distributor used that fifth man in the llth end of Sunday's opening round matchup with the host New Brunswick rink to take an extra-end 10-8 victory from John Clark of Fredericton. The incredible llth-end shot enabled the Saskatchewan foursome to take the lead for the first time and while New Brunswick got that one back in the 12th, it gave the Western Canada powerhouse the vital last rock in the extra end. "I was certainly quite relax- ed at the start of the said Mazinke, "but after you miss a couple of shots you tighten up a bit because you're trying to see what you're do- ing wrong. "There certainly was lots of tension at the finish of the game." His shot on the llth allowed him to steal the end. He got a punch and a roll for a partial- ly-guard counter with his last, rock and Clark's final nudged him farther into the rings. "That was just a lifesaver, and a little bit he admitted. "This is the fifth man that I talk about that you have to have curling with you in the brier. "You may curl well, but you have to get the bonus shot once in a while to get the wins." In other key games Sunday, Rod Hunter's favored Manitoba rink from Winnipeg edged Jim Ursel and his Quebec entry from St. Lambert, 7-5, by stealing one in the last end. Dr. Alex Scott of Kingston and his Ontario foursome downed Frank Beutel of Penticton, B.C., blanking three of the last seven ends and blanking the British Columbia foursome on the Scoreboard. Elsewhere, Don Twa and his Whitehorse rink, representing the first Territories team in the Cana- dian men's championship, scored two in the 12th end for a 7-6 victory over John For- tier's Prince Edward Island crew from Charlottetown. Dick Boyce of Dartmouth and his Nova Scotia entry took an early lead and hung on for a 10-9 upset of Tom Reed.
